ORLANDO, FLORIDA (BNS): The LONGBOW LLC has received a $26.8 million contract from the US Army Aviation and Missile Command for LONGBOW Fire Control Radar (FCR) Life Cycle Contractor Support.

The follow-on contract includes integrated logistics for the 246 LONGBOW FCR systems in the US Army inventory.

Under this contract, LONGBOW LLC, a joint venture of Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman, will also provide worldwide sustainment for the US Army and Army National Guard. The contract includes options that could extend the Life Cycle Contractor Support through 2012.
