The U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command (AMCOM) awarded a $13.3 million contract to Longbow Limited (LBL) for Life Cycle Contractor Support (LCCS) of the Longbow Fire Control Radar (FCR).
LBL, a limited liability company consisting of Northrop Grumman Electronic Systems (NYSE: NOC) and Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT), received the fixed price contract for calendar year 2005. The contract includes a $13.3 million option for calendar year 2006.
