    ATLANTA — India has awarded a contract to Longbow LLC, a joint venture of Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman, for fire control radar systems with advanced air and ground targeting capabilities for the country's AH-64E Apache attack helicopters.
    The firm-fixed price, undefinitized foreign military sales contract comes to $57.1 million but could be worth up to $116.7 million, according to a statement released Saturday at the Aviation Association of America's Mission Solutions Summit.

    The contract buys 12 Longbow FCR systems for the Indian Air Force and spares and production will last through early 2019.

    “With Longbow FCR, the Indian Air Force will receive a rapid all-weather targeting capability,” Jim Messina, Longbow LLC’s president and director of Longbow programs at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control, said in a statement. “The FCR’s air over-watch mode provides aircrews with 360-degree situational awareness, improving survivability and mission success.”
    And Ike Song, Northrop’s vice president of Mission Solutions within its Land and Avionics C4ISR division said.
    The Longbow FCR, for more than 10 years, has made it possible to “automatically detect, locate, classify and prioritize targets,” the statement reads, “in all weather, over multiple terrains and through battlefield obscurants.”

    So at least few Ah 64 with iconic Longbows before 2020.
