Longbow was awarded a $103 million contract for Fire Control Radar Mast Mounted Assembly (MMA) Refurbishment program for the United Kingdom in support of the International Apache Attack Helicopter Project Office at Redstone Arsenal, Alabama.
One bid was solicited with one bid received. Work is expected to be completed by July 31, 2023.
Longbow LLC is a joint venture between Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman.
The data link enabled fire control radar (DLE FCR) is integrated into the MMA on the Apache, allowing pilots to accomplish multiple mission requirements while providing battlefield intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance.
DLE FCR allows Apache aircrews to receive real-time video and map data from Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) and other manned airborne platforms with downlink sensors. Pilots are able to select the frequency of a specific UAS with the desired view and stream information to their multifunction cockpit displays. They can also enter UAS target data to cue Apache sensors and weapons. DLE FCR enables two-way communication between manned aircraft and ground station or between multiple manned aircraft.
