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.
