Released on Friday, July 23, 2004
FMS - Foreign Military Sale
The Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) reported the US Congress of a possible Foreign Military Sale (FMS) to Canada of components for an advanced extremely high frequency terminals program as well as associated equipment and services.

The Government of Canada requested the sale of 19 Secure Mobile Anti-Jam Reliable Tactical Terminals (SMART-T) and 60 Single Channel Anti-Jam (SCAMP) modification kits. The possible sale also includes support equipment, spare and repair parts, supply support, personnel training, training equipment, publications, technical data, technical assistance and other related elements of logistics support. The total value of this FMS, all options exercised, could be as high as $83 million.

This sale will contribute to improve capabilities of the Canadian armed forces as well as interoperability and standardization with US and allied forces.

SMART-T satellite terminals will be mounted on Canadian Light Support Vehicles Wheeled (LSVWs) which will undergo modifications in order to seamlessly integrate the advanced terminals. The SMART-T are also capable of stand-alone operation.

The principal contractors will be Raytheon and Rockwell-Collins. There are no known offset agreements proposed in connection with this potential sale. The US Congress must approve the deal prior to be concluded between the US and Canadian governments and the contractors.
