Northrop Grumman in South Korea
Northrop Grumman is committed to a strong partnership with the Republic of Korea's Ministry of National Defense.
With an office in Seoul since 1991, Northrop Grumman has a history of successful programs with the Republic of Korea (ROK) government. Some of our most significant products in the ROK include the APG-68 Fire Control Radar (FCR) on KF-16, MESA radar on Peace Eye, Internal Countermeasures System (ICS) on the F-15K, APN-241 all-weather radars on the upgraded C-130 platform, legacy F-5 fighter jets and support to the Korean Air and Missile Defense (KAMD) program.
In September 2013, Northrop Grumman received a contract to provide the ROK with LONGBOW Fire Control Radars for the AH-64E Apache attack helicopter. The contract includes LONGBOW FCR systems, spares and in-country support. The LONGBOW FCR is a battle-proven radar system that will provide ROK Apache pilots with increased situational awareness, survivability and lethality. In December 2015, Northrop Grumman was awarded a contract to produce four RQ-4 Global Hawk unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) for the ROK's Air Force. The systems will provide valuable wide-area intelligence gathering capabilities to military commanders so they can make more informed decisions.
