The LONGBOW Fire Control Radar (FCR) system is built by a Joint Venture of Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman for the Apache attack helicopter. As a force multiplier that has been battle-proven in Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom, the LONGBOW FCR system provides Apache aircrews with automatic target detection, location, classification and prioritization, while enabling rapid, multi-target engagement in all weather conditions over multiple types of terrain and through battlefield obscurants. The LONGBOW FCR system has been in full-rate production since 1996, with the first unit equipped in 1998. To date, 500 LONGBOW FCR systems have been delivered to the U.S. Army and international customers.
