The Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) notified the US Congress of a potential foreign military sale to Japan of 64 SM-2 Block IIIB Standard missiles as well as associated equipment and services.

The government of Japan has requested a possible sale of 40 SM-2 Block IIIB tactical Standard missiles with Mk 13 mod 0 canisters, 14 SM-2 Block IIIB telemetry Standard missiles with Mk 13 mod 0 canisters and AN/DKT-71A telemeters and conversion kits, 10 SM-2 Block IIIB telemetry Standard missiles with Mk 13 mod 0 canisters and DKT-71A telemeters. The proposed sale also includes containers, spare and repair parts, supply support, technical assistance and other related elements of logistics support.

The estimated total value of the sale of 64 SM-2 Block IIIB missiles to Japan is approximately $99 million. There are no known offset agreements associated to this possible FMS. The US Congress must approve the deal in order to be concluded.

The prime contractor for the Standard missiles will be Raytheon. Japan will use these missiles to improve the capabilities of the Japan Maritime Self Defense Force (JMSDF) ships in defense of critical sea-lanes of communications.
