Kuwait Seeks Follow-On Logistics and Technical Support for AH-64D Fleet

Kuwait Seeks Follow-On Logistics and Technical Support for AH-64D Fleet

The Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) notified U.S. Congress July 10 of a possible Foreign Military Sale (FMS) to the Government of Kuwait for continuing logistics support, training, depot-level repair services and associated equipment, parts and logistical support for an estimated cost of $200 million.

The Government of Kuwait has requested a possible sale for continuing logistics support, training, depot-level repair services, and technical services in support of AH-64D APACHE helicopters, publications and technical documentation, U.S. Government and contractor technical and logistics personnel services and other related elements of program and logistics support. The estimated cost is $200 million.

This proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping to improve the security of a friendly country which has been, and continues to be, an important force for political stability and economic progress in the Middle East.

The proposed sale of logistics and technical support will enable the Kuwaiti Air Force to ensure the reliability and performance of its APACHE helicopters. The follow-on support will allow Kuwait to maintain aircraft availability/operational rates, and enhance interoperability with the U.S. and other nations.

The proposed sale of this support will not alter the basic military balance in the region.

The principal contractors will be The Boeing Company in Mesa, Arizona; Lockheed Martin Corporation in Orlando, Florida; Longbow Limited Liability Corporation in Orlando, Florida; and Lockheed Martin Mission Sensors and Systems in Owego, New York. There are no known offset agreements proposed in connection with this potential sale.

Implementation of this proposed sale may require an extension to the assignment of additional U.S. Government or contractor representatives to Kuwait. There will be U.S. Government and contractor representatives for one-week intervals once annually to participate in working level meetings. Approximately 44 contractor representatives will serve as technical representatives for approximately three (3) years following the end of the current contract base year. Additionally, up to three (3) U.S. Government personnel and one (1) contractor representative, with various technical skills and disciplines, will be required to provide in-country support for an extended period of time.

There will be no adverse impact on U.S. defense readiness as a result of this proposed sale.

This notice of a potential sale is required by law and does not mean the sale has been concluded.
