DSCA - Defense Security Cooperation Agency
FMS - Foreign Military Sale
WASHINGTON, August 3, 2007 - The Defense Security Cooperation Agency notified Congress of a possible Foreign Military Sale to Canada of AN/ALR-67(V)3 radar warning receivers as well as associated equipment and services. The total value, if all options are exercised, could be as high as $209 million.

The Government of Canada has requested a possible sale of 59 AN/ALR-67(V)3 Radar Warning Receivers, 24 AN/ALR-67(V)3 partial ship-sets, test program sets, adaptors, test sets and support equipment, spare and repair parts, personnel training and training equipment, technical assistance, and other related elements of logistics support. The estimated cost is $209 million.

This proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security objectives of the United States by improving the military capabilities of Canada and further weapon system standardization and interoperability with U.S. forces. Canadian deployments in support of peacekeeping and humanitarian operations have made a significant impact to global political and economic stability and have served U.S. national security interests.

Canada plans to upgrade avionics on its F/A-18 aircraft. The AN/ALR-67(V)3 features will provide a capability common to other coalition military forces.

The proposed sale of this equipment and support to Canada will not affect the basic military balance in the region.

Implementation of this proposed sale will require the assignment of two contractor representatives to Canada. United States Government and contractor representatives participating in technical reviews for one-week intervals twice annually.

The principal contractors will be: Raytheon Corporation in Waltham, Massachusetts and Boeing Company in St. Louis, Missouri. There are no known offset agreements proposed in connection with this potential sale.

There will be no adverse impact on U.S. defense readiness as a result of this proposed sale.

This notice of a potential sale is required by law; it does not mean that the sale has been concluded.
