The State Department has made a determination approving a possible Foreign Military Sale to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS) Launchers and associated equipment, parts, training and logistical support for an estimated cost of $900 million.

The Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) delivered the required certification notifying Congress of this possible sale.

Also included are 12 High Mobility Artillery Rocket System Resupply Vehicles M1084A1P2; 2 Wreckers, 5 Ton, M1089A1P2, with Long Term Armor Strategy (LTAS) Cab and B-Kit Armor; 90 Low Cost Reduced-Range Practice Rocket (RRPR) pods; support equipment; communications equipment; spare and repair parts; test sets; batteries; laptop computers; publications and technical data; personnel training and equipment; systems integration support; a Quality Assurance Team and a Technical Assistance Fielding Team support; United States Government and contractor engineering and logistics personnel services; and other related elements of logistics support.

The HIMARS will improve the UAE’s capability to meet current and future threats and provide greater security for its critical infrastructure. This proposed sale will also enhance the UAE’s interoperability with the U.S. and its allies, making it a more valuable partner in an increasingly important area of the world. The UAE 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 Lockheed Martin Missile and Fire Control in Dallas, Texas. There are no known offset agreements proposed in connection with this potential sale.

Implementation of this proposed sale will require the assignment of up to ten U.S. government or contractor representatives to travel to the UAE for a period of up to one year for equipment de-processing/fielding, system checkout and training.

The proposed sale of this equipment and support will not alter the basic military balance in the region or have an adverse impact on U.S. defense readiness.

This notice of a potential sale is required by law and does not mean the sale has been concluded.
