Northrop Grumman Corporation AN/APG-78 Longbow Fire Control Radar

Description
The Longbow Fire Control Radar and its weapons counterpart, the radar-guided, "fire and forget" Longbow Hellfire missile, enable the potent Apache attack helicopter to detect, classify and prioritize ground targets day or night, in poor weather and obscured conditions; then attack those targets with pinpoint accuracy from ranges that safeguard the lives of the aircrew. The radar provides high performance with very low probability of intercept. High system reliability and two-level maintenance provide high operational availability with low support costs. Developed and built for the U.S. Army by Longbow LLC, (a joint venture with Lockheed Martin), it has also been ordered by the British Army.
