Also included are the upgrade of the existing Royal Saudi Air Force (RSAF) fleet of seventy (70) F-15S multi-role fighters to the F-15SA configuration, the provision for CONUS-based fighter training operations for a twelve (12) F-15SA contingent, construction, refurbishments, and infrastructure improvements of several support facilities for the F-15SA in-Kingdom and/or CONUS operations, RR-188 Chaff, MJU-7/10 Flares, training munitions, Cartridge Actuated Devices/Propellant Actuated Devices, communication security, site surveys, trainers, simulators, publications and technical documentation, personnel training and training equipment, U.S. government and contractor engineering, technical, and logistical support services, and other related elements of logistical and program support. The estimated cost is $29.432 billion.
This proposed sale will enhance the foreign policy and national security objectives of the United States by strengthening our on-going strategically important relationship with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA).
For the past twenty years the F-15 has been a cornerstone of the relationship between the U.S. Air Force (USAF) and the RSAF. The procurement of the F-15SA, the conversion of the F-15S fleet to a common configuration, and the CONUS training contingent will provide interoperability, sustained professional contacts, and common ground for training and support well into the 21st century.
The F-15SA will help deter potential aggressors by increasing Saudi’s tactical air force capability to defend KSA against regional threats. The CONUS-based contingent would improve interoperability between the USAF and the RSAF. This approach will meet Saudi’s self-defense requirements and continue to foster the long-term military-to-military relationship between the United States and the KSA. Saudi Arabia, which currently has the F-15 in its inventory, will have no difficulty absorbing the F-15SA aircraft into its armed forces.
The proposed sale of this service will not alter the basic military balance in the region.
This notice of a potential sale is required by law and does not mean the sale has been concluded.

VSI awarded JHMCS contracts valued at more than $80 million

Vision Systems International, LLC (VSI), a leader in advanced Helmet Mounted Display (HMD) technology, has received several new contracts with a total value of more than $80 million.

Awarded contracts include delivery of the Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System (JHMCS) to the Boeing Company for U.S. and Foreign Military Sales (FMS), FAst Characterization Tools (FACT) for the U.S. Navy and JHMCS for other international sales.

Under these production contracts, VSI will provide JHMCS and FACT hardware, including spares, technical support and ground support equipment for the Full Rate Production - Lot 6 (FRP-6) acquisition. This procurement fulfills U.S. government domestic requirements for the U.S. Navy F/A-18C/D/E/F/G single- and dual-seat platforms, and FMS production and spares commitments to a number of countries operating F-16 and F/A-18 aircraft. Deliveries under FRP-6 will commence this year and continue through 2011.

With the delivery of more than 3,500 systems, JHMCS continues to be the world’s premier helmet display for fixed-wing tactical aircraft,” says VSI President Drew Brugal. “These contracts include sales to the 21st international customer that has selected JHMCS to enhance the tactical capability of their front line fighters. The system provides the warfighter with unmatched situational awareness throughout the operational profile of the aircraft. By keeping ‘eyes out’ while viewing all critical information on the helmet visor, the pilot has a significant advantage in both air-to-air and air-to-ground mission execution.”

The JHMCS provides the pilot with “first look, first shot” high off-boresight weapons engagement capabilities. The system enables the pilot to accurately cue onboard weapons and sensors against enemy aircraft and ground targets without the need to aggressively turn the aircraft or place the target in the Head Up Display (HUD) field-of-view for designation. Critical information and symbology, such as targeting cues and aircraft performance parameters, are graphically displayed directly on the pilot’s visor.

Pentagon Poised for $13 Billion in Mideast Arms Sales
1 Rumata " "

http://www.defensenews.com/article/...east-Arms-Sales


Since mid-June, the Pentagon’s Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) informed Congress of $6.4 billion in potential defense trade with Saudi Arabia, including a $4 billion National Guard modernization program, new Mark V patrol boats and follow-on support for the Royal Saudi Air Force.

In Iraq, DSCS notified Congress of $4.7 billion in possible sales, including a $2.4 billion integrated air defense system and $900 million worth of Stryker vehicles configured for nonconventional warfare scenarios.

During the same period, it informed Congress of a potential $1.1 billion early warning radar deal to Qatar; a $588 million package of C-130J airlifters to Libya and $200 million to support Kuwait’s fleet of F/A-18 fighters.

As for Iraq, a pre-approved, potential $2.4 billion integrated air defense package aims to “reduce its vulnerability to air attacks and also enhance interoperability between the Government of Iraq, the US and other allies.” According to DSCA, the package includes 40 Avenger fire units, 681 Stinger missiles, Hawk XXI batteries, various radars, communications gear and command-and-control systems.

Additionally, DSCA said the potential $900 million sale of 50 M1135 WMD-configured Strykers would contribute to Iraq’s stability and sovereignty by increasing its situational awareness and ability to identify potential chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear agents.

UAE to install counter-missile system on head-of-state aircraft
1 Rumata " "

http://www.flightglobal.com/news/ar...f-state-415222/

The UAE has been cleared by the US State Department to buy military infrared-missile countermeasure systems to protect its Boeing-based head-of-state aircraft.

The potential deal is valued at $355 million and would include four complete Northrop Grumman AN/AAQ 24(V) Directional Infrared Countermeasures (DIRCM) systems for installation on UAE’s executive fleet, according to a 29 July US Defense Security Cooperation Agency notice.

The system uses lasers to dazzle incoming infrared-guided missiles and can be installed on large and small fixed-wing aircraft as well as rotorcraft, says Northrop. The US military employs DIRCM systems on its transport and combat aircraft, like the C-17 Globemaster, V-22 Osprey and AH-64 Apache. It is also installed on most special forces transports.

UAE’s package would include various hardware like laser transmitters, anti-spoofing modules and 30 AN/AAR-54 missile warning sensors. DSCA says the principal contractors are Boeing and Northrop and the sale covers flight testing and certification as well as personnel training and training equipment.

“The sale of this advanced system will enhance the safety of the UAE's political leadership while bolstering US-UAE relations,” the notice says.

U.S. approves $1.29 billion sale of smart bombs to Saudi Arabia

The U.S. State Department has approved the sale of $1.29 billion in smart bombs to Saudi Arabia to help replenish supplies used in its battle against insurgents in Yemen and air strikes against Islamic State in Syria, the Pentagon said on Monday.

The Pentagon's Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA), which facilitates foreign arms sales, notified lawmakers on Friday that the sales had been approved, it said in a statement.

The lawmakers now have 30 days to block the sale, although such action is rare since deals are carefully vetted before any formal notification.

The sales reflect President Barack Obama's pledge to bolster U.S. military support for Saudi Arabia and other Sunni allies in the Gulf Cooperation Council after his administration brokered a nuclear deal with their Shiite rival Iran.

The agency said the sale would help the Royal Saudi Air Force's (RSAF) replenish weapons supplies that are becoming depleted due to high demand for multiple counter-terrorism operations, while providing reserves for future missions. "This acquisition will help sustain strong military-to-military relations between the United States and Saudi Arabia, improve (the ability of Saudi forces to work) with the United States, and enable Saudi Arabia to meet regional threats and safeguard the world's largest oil reserves," it said.


Providing the munitions to Saudi forces would also help deter its enemies, and "directly conveys U.S. commitment to the RSAF's current and future ability to sustain combat operations," it said.


The proposed sale includes 22,000 smart and general purpose bombs, including 1,000 GBU-10 Paveway II Laser Guided Bombs, and over 5,000 Joint Direct Attack Munitions kits to turn older bombs into precision-guided weapons using GPS signals.

The weapons are made by Boeing Co (BA.N) and Raytheon Co (RTN.N), but the agency told lawmakers the prime contractors would be selected in a competition.

Kuwait Signs Eurofighter Jet Deal
1 Rumata " "

http://www.defensenews.com/story/de...-deal/82647386/

Kuwait’s delayed deal to buy 28 Eurofighter jets was signed Tuesday, giving the European fighter program a much-needed shot in the arm and providing Italy’s Finmeccanica with its largest contract.

Kuwait has ordered its aircraft equipped with an electronically scanned radar, which is being developed for the aircraft but has yet to be adopted by Eurofighters operated by the four launch partners on the program — Italy, the UK, Germany and Spain.

The radar is being developed by the European EuroRADAR consortium, which is led by Finmeccanica.

In a statement, the Eurofighter consortium said the deal covered 22 single-seat and six twin-seat aircraft, all third tranche standard.

The deal, which has been held up by contractual negotiations, is based on a government-to-government accord signed between Kuwait and Italy in September.

The Eurofighter deal approval was issued Monday, according to a report released Tuesday from the Kuwaiti Cabinet of Ministers.

Morocco Orders 24 Boeing AH-64E Apache Helicopters
1 Rumata " "

https://boeing.mediaroom.com/2020-0...che-Helicopters

Morocco is the 17th country to acquire the Boeing AH-64 Apache through a contract for 24 of the helicopters that was recently signed.

Boeing has delivered nearly 2,500 Apache helicopters to 16 nations to date, including the U.S., Netherlands, Greece, United Kingdom, Japan, India, Singapore, South Korea and Saudi Arabia. Deliveries to Morocco are expected to begin in 2024.

“This is another step forward in our long partnership with the Kingdom of Morocco,” said Jeff Shockey, vice president, Global Sales and Marketing, Boeing Defense, Space & Security and Government Services. “Worldwide demand for the Apache is growing and we are proud to provide this best-in-class capability to Morocco.”

The AH-64E Apache is the latest configuration of the attack helicopter. It is designed and equipped with an open systems architecture including the latest communications, navigation, sensor and weapon systems. It has an improved Modernized Target Acquisition Designation System that provides day, night and all-weather target information, as well as night vision navigation capability. In addition to classifying ground and air targets, the Fire Control Radar has been updated to operate in a maritime environment.

Boeing will build and deliver the new Moroccan Apaches under a contract with the U.S. Army through the U.S. government’s Foreign Military Sales process.

Boeing’s partnership with Morocco spans decades. The company is committed to developing Morocco’s supply chain and future workforce. Boeing is a partner of the MATIS Aerospace joint venture, which produces airplane wire bundles and harnesses. In 2016, the company signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Kingdom to create an ecosystem of aircraft equipment suppliers. Boeing also supports the country's future workforce through partnerships with Education for Employment (EFE) Morocco and the INJAZ Al-Maghrib association.
