The Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) notified Congress of a possible
Foreign Military Sale to Japan of four sets of Airborne Early Warning (AEW) and
Command, Control and Communications (C3) mission equipment/Radar System
Improvement Program (RSIP) kits as well as associated equipment and services.
The total value, if all options are exercised, could be as high as $147 million.
The Government of Japan has requested a possible sale of four sets of Airborne
Early Warning (AEW) and Command, Control and Communications (C3) mission
equipment/Radar System Improvement Program (RSIP) Group A and B kits, for
subsequent installation and checkout in four previously procured E-767 Airborne
Warning and Control Systems (AWACS). In addition, this proposed sale will
include related spare and repair parts, support equipment, publications and
technical documentation, services and other related program elements to ensure
complete AWACS mission equipment supportability. The estimated cost is $147
Japan is one of the major political and economic powers in East Asia and the
Western Pacific and a key ally of the United States in ensuring peace and
stability in that region. It is vital to the U.S. national interest to assist
Japan to develop and maintain a strong and ready self-defense capability, which
will contribute to an acceptable military balance in the region. This proposed
sale is consistent with these U.S. objectives and with the 1960 Treaty of Mutual
Cooperation and Security.
Japan previously purchased four sets of AWACS mission equipment and needs this
additional mission equipment to continue its development of an extended Airborne
Early Warning (AEW) capability as well as enhanced command, control and
communications (C3). Japan will have no difficulty absorbing the additional
AWACS aircraft equipment into its armed forces.
The prime contractor will be Boeing Aerospace Company in Seattle, Washington.
There are no known offset agreements proposed in connection with this potential
sale. Implementation of this proposed sale will not require the assignment of
any U.S. Government and contractor representatives to Japan.
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.
