US Congress will consider a possible Foreign Military Sale to the Government of Japan for installation and checkout of mission equipment for AWACS aircraft and associated equipment, parts, training and logistical support for an estimated cost of $119 million. The Government of Japan has requested installation and checkout of four previously procured Radar System Improvement Program (RSIP) Group A and B kits in E-767 Airborne Warning and Control Systems (AWACS). Also provided are the transportation of the E-767s to/from Japan, spare and repair parts, support and test equipment, publications and technical documentation, U.S. Government and contractor personnel support services, and other related program elements to ensure complete AWACS
mission equipment supportability. The estimated cost is $119 million.
Japan previously purchased four sets of AWACS RSIP Group A and B kits mission equipment to enhance the operational capability of its E-767 radar electronic counter-measures, and now requires this Installation and Checkout to integrate extended Airborne Early Warning (AEW) capability as well as enhanced command, control and communications (C3). The prime contractor will be Boeing Aerospace Company in Seattle, Washington.
