Canada Approved For Possible Acquisition Of King Air 350ER ISR Aircraft

Three Airplanes Would Be Equipped With MAISR Platform

The State Department has made a determination approving a possible Foreign Military Sale to Canada of three  King Air 350ER (extended range) aircraft with customer unique post-modifications for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) operations for an estimated cost of $300 million. The Defense Security Cooperation Agency delivered the required certification notifying Congress of this possible sale on October 3, 2018.

The Government of Canada has requested to buy three  King Air 350ER (extended range) aircraft with customer unique post-modifications for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) operations; three  WESCAM MX-15D Electro-Optical & Infrared Imaging Sensors; three  AN/AAR-47B(V)2 Missile and Laser Warning System (MWS); three  AN/ALE-47 Countermeasure Dispenser Systems (CMDS); three  VORTEX Dual RF Ku LOS Transceivers; three  COMSEC Modules (KGV-135A); two (2) APM-424(V)5 Transponder Test Sets; five KIV-77 Mode 4/5 crypto applique computers for IFF; three  AN/APX-119 IFF Digital Civil and Military Transponders; six ARC-210 Multi-mode Voice and Data Transceivers; three  KG-250X NSA-Certified Type 1 Inline Network Encryptors (INE); technical data; mission equipment, communication and navigation equipment, special tools and test equipment, ground support equipment, airframe and engine spare parts, publications, MWO/ECPs, technical assistance, repair and return, training; and transportation of aircraft, and other related elements of logistics and program support.  Total estimated program cost is $300 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 NATO ally that is an important force for ensuring political stability and economic progress and a contributor to military, peacekeeping and humanitarian operations around the world.

The proposed sale improves Canada's capability to meet current and future threats; strengthen its homeland defense and the combined defense of North America; and support coalition partners overseas.  This proposed sale will improve interoperability with U.S. forces and other regional allies.  Canada 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.
