U.S. Army officials joined Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman reps yesterday to mark handover of the 400th Longbow fire control radar (FCR) at a ceremony in Orlando, Fla. Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman joint venture Longbow LLC delivered the milestone unit to the Army at Lockheed’s facility in Orlando, Fla. Col. Shane Openshaw, Army program manager for Apache, called the Longbow FCR a “battlefield force multiplier,” adding that the system’s targeting capabilities “provide critical support for ground troops while limiting the aircrew’s exposure to threats.”
