Raytheon to Supply Egypt with Sentinel Radars

The U.S. State Department has made a determination approving a possible Foreign Military Sale to Egypt for Sentinel AN/MPQ-64F1 Radars and related equipment.
The Government of Egypt has requested a possible sale of eight Sentinel AN/MPQ-64F1 Radars and software and training, as well as spares and support equipment, technical manuals, Single Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System (SINCGARS) VRC-92E Radios, 16 High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWV) Ml 152 with Shelter Carrier Kit, U.S. Government and contractor support, training and other associated support, equipment and services.

The total estimated value of MDE is US$40 million and the total estimated cost is US$70 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 strategic partner that has been and continues to be an important force for political stability and economic progress in the Middle East.
Egypt intends to expand its existing air defence architecture to counter threats posed by air attack. This will contribute to the country’s military goal of updating its capabilities while further enhancing interoperability among Egypt, the United States, and other allies. Egypt will have no difficulty absorbing this equipment into its armed forces.
The principal contractor involved in this programme is Thales Raytheon Systems, Fullerton, California. Implementation of this proposed sale will require 10 U.S. Government or contractor representatives to travel to Egypt for a period of eight weeks for equipment checkout and training.
