Jor­dan – AIM-120C‑7 AMRAAM Mis­siles

WASHINGTON, Aug. 3, 2009 – Today the Defense Secu­ri­ty Coop­er­a­tion Agency noti­fied Con­gress of a pos­si­ble for­eign mil­i­tary sale to the Gov­ern­ment of Jor­dan of 85 AIM-120C‑7 Advanced Medi­um Range Air-to-Air Mis­siles (AMRAAM) and asso­ci­at­ed equip­ment, parts and logis­ti­cal sup­port at an esti­mat­ed cost of $131 million.

The Gov­ern­ment of Jor­dan has request­ed a pos­si­ble sale of 85 AIM-120C‑7 Advanced Medi­um Range Air-to-Air Mis­siles (AMRAAM), 6 120C Cap­tive Air Train­ing Mis­siles, mis­sile con­tain­ers, spare and repair parts, sup­port and test equip­ment, pub­li­ca­tions and tech­ni­cal doc­u­men­ta­tion, per­son­nel train­ing and train­ing equip­ment, U.S. Gov­ern­ment and con­trac­tor engi­neer­ing, tech­ni­cal and logis­tics sup­port ser­vices, and oth­er relat­ed ele­ments of logis­ti­cal and pro­gram sup­port. The esti­mat­ed cost is $131 million.

The pro­posed sale will enhance the for­eign pol­i­cy and nation­al secu­ri­ty objec­tives of the Unit­ed States by improv­ing the secu­ri­ty of a key region­al part­ner who has proven to be a vital force for polit­i­cal sta­bil­i­ty and peace in the Mid­dle East.

The pro­posed sale will improve Jordan’s capa­bil­i­ty to meet cur­rent and future threats of ene­my air-to-air weapons. Jor­dan will use the enhanced capa­bil­i­ty as a deter­rent to region­al threats and to strength­en its home­land defense. Jor­dan will have no dif­fi­cul­ty absorb­ing these addi­tion­al missiles.

The pro­posed sale of this equip­ment and sup­port will not alter the basic mil­i­tary bal­ance in the region.
The prime con­trac­tor will be the Raytheon Cor­po­ra­tion of Tuc­son, Ari­zona. There are no known off­set agree­ments pro­posed in con­nec­tion with this poten­tial sale.

Imple­men­ta­tion of this pro­posed sale will require bi-annu­al trips to Jor­dan involv­ing up to six U.S. Gov­ern­ment and four con­trac­tor rep­re­sen­ta­tives for one-week inter­vals for pro­gram man­age­ment reviews.

There will be no adverse impact on U.S. defense readi­ness as a result of this pro­posed sale.
This notice of a poten­tial sale is required by law. It does not mean that the sale has been concluded.
