The US State Department has made a determination approving a $319 million foreign military sale to Kuwait for facilities and infrastructure construction support services, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency announced on 6 April.

Kuwait's request includes the design, construction and procurement of key airfield operations, command and control, readiness, sustainment and life support facilities for the Al Mubarak airbase in Kuwait.

The US Army Corps of Engineers will provide project management, engineering services, technical support, facility and infrastructure assessments, surveys, planning, programming, design, acquisition, contract administration, construction management, and other technical services for the construction of facilities and infrastructure for the airbase.

Other infrastructure required for a fully functioning airbase, including a main operations centre, hangars, training facilities, barracks, warehouses, support facilities, are also included in the request.

The facilities will replace existing facilities and will provide autonomous airbase operations to the Kuwait Air Force, ensuring continued readiness and allowing for the continued training of personnel.
