United States of America
FMS - Foreign Military Sale
The Defense Security Cooperation Agency notified the US Congress of a possible Foreign Military Sale (FMS) of ultra high frequency long range early warning radars requested by Taipei's Economic and Cultural Representative Office in the United States of America.

The total value of this potential FMS with related equipment and services as well as all options exercised could be as high as $1.776 billion.

Taiwan would like to purchase two ultra high frequency early warning radars as part of its Surveillance Radar Program (SRP) including communications equipment, facilities to house and maintain the radars, missile warning centers, power, spare and repair parts, support equipment, etc.

Taipei will use the long range early warning radars to identify and detect incoming ballistic missiles, cruise missiles, and aircraft that eventually could threaten Taiwan island.

The sale has not been concluded yet. Raytheon and Lockheed-Martin are expected to bid for this potential FMS which will involve offsets.
