Saudi Arabia requests tactical air surveillance system

28th May 2019 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The US State Department has made a determination approving a potential foreign military sale of continued tactical air surveillance system aircraft support to Saudi Arabia, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency announced on 24 May.

In a package worth $136 million, Saudi Arabia has requested spare and repair parts, US government and contractor engineering, technical and logistics support services, along with other related elements of programme support.

Additionally, the sale will support rehabilitation of the integrated lab located in the US used for testing and troubleshooting. 

The proposed sale will improve Saudi Arabia's surveillance capability to counter current and future regional threats and strengthen its homeland defence.

If the sale goes ahead, the prime contractor will be L3 Technologies.
