The US State Department has approved the possible Foreign Military Sale to Denmark of nine AN/AQS-22 Airborne Low Frequency Sonar systems and 600 AN/SSQ-36/53/62 sonobuoys.

Lockheed Martin would be prime contractor for the deal, which including support would be worth some $200 million, and the Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) has notified Congress of the approval. 

In addition to the systems themselves, Denmark has requested spare and repair parts, support and test equipment, communication systems, publications and technical documentation, and training.  

The DSCA says that the proposed sale will improve Denmark’s capability to meet current and future threats from enemy weapon systems, providing an anti-submarine warfare capability that the nation will use to enhance its ability to deter regional threats and strengthen its homeland defence.
