A joint venture of Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) and Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) has been awarded a five-year, $96 million subcontract by AgustaWestland to help sustain fire control radars on British military helicopters.
Longbow International will provide engineering, logistics and repair services for the radars as part of AgustaWestland’s operational support contract with the U.K.’s defense ministry, Lockheed said Thursday.
The British military installed the radars on Apache AH Mk.1 helicopters, which is a fleet the contract will support, Tom Eldredge, president of LONGBOW International, said.
Work will occur at the U.K. Wattisham Airfield Special Repair Activity Depot; a Northrop facility in Baltimore; Lockheed’s facilities in Ocala and Orlando, Fla.; and LMUK Ampthill in the U.K.
Contract work is scheduled to complete in March 2019.
