Canada - Joint Direct Attack Munition Tail Kits

The State Department has made a determination approving a possible Foreign Military Sale to the Government of Canada of Joint Direct Attack Munition Tail Kits and related elements of logistics and program support for an estimated cost of $96.4 million. The Defense Security Cooperation Agency delivered the required certification notifying Congress of this possible sale today.

The Government of Canada has requested to buy an additional six hundred ninety (690) KMU-572 Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) tail kits; seventy-five (75) KMU-556 JDAM tail kits; and twenty-five (25) KMU-557 JDAM tail kits that will be added to a previously implemented case whose value was under the congressional notification threshold. The original Foreign Military Sales (FMS) case, valued at $16.1 million ($11.8 million in MDE), included a total of two hundred ten (210) KMU-572 JDAM tail kits; fifty (50) KMU-556 JDAM tail kits; and twenty-five (25) KMU-557 JDAM tail kits. This notification is for a combined total of nine hundred (900) KMU-572 JDAM tail kits; one hundred twenty-five (125) KMU-556 JDAM tail kits; and fifty (50) KMU-557 JDAM tail kits. Also included are Laser Illuminated Target Detectors; FMU-139 fuzes; weapons support equipment; spare and repair parts, consumables and accessories, and repair and return support; publications and technical documentation; studies and surveys; U.S. Government and contractor engineering, technical, and logistics support services; and other related elements of logistics and program support. The estimated total cost is $96.4 million.

This proposed sale will support the foreign policy and national security objectives of the United States by helping to improve the military capability of Canada, a North Atlantic Treaty Organization Ally that is an important force for ensuring political stability and economic progress and is a contributor to military, peacekeeping, and humanitarian operations around the world.

The proposed sale will improve Canada’s capability to meet current and future threats by increasing available stores of munitions for its air force. Canada already has the JDAM in its inventory and will have no difficulty absorbing this equipment into its armed forces.

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

The principal contractor will be Boeing Corporation, located in St. Louis, MO. There are no known offset agreements proposed in connection with this potential sale.

Implementation of this proposed sale will not require the assignment of any additional U.S. Government or contractor representatives to Canada.

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

The description and dollar value are for the highest estimated quantity and dollar value based on initial requirements. Actual dollar value will be lower depending on final requirements, budget authority, and signed sales agreement(s), if and when concluded.
