Iraq Support for Communication Centers
The Defense Security Cooperation Agency notified Congress last week of a possible Foreign Military Sale to Iraq of contractor logistics support for Mobile Communications Centers and associated parts and equipment for a complete package worth approximately $57 million.
The Government of Iraq has requested a possible sale of contractor technical support for the development and modification of Mobile Communications Centers that includes the design, supply and installation of all communication equipment. Also included are warranties, spare and repair parts, support equipment, publications and technical data, personnel training and training equipment, contractor engineering and technical support services, and other related elements of logistics support. The estimated cost is $57 million.
The proposed sale will provide Iraq with spares, training, and technical support for its existing communications network. This will enable the Government of Iraq to assume the missions currently accomplished by U.S. and coalition forces and to sustain itself in its efforts to bring stability to Iraq.
The prime contractors will be ITT Corporation, Defense Electronics Services in McLean, Virginia, and the Harris Corporation in White Plains, New York. There are no known offset agreements proposed in connection with this potential sale.
This notice of a potential sale does not mean the sale has been concluded.
