(viii) Date Report Delivered to Congress: 14 Dec 2012 POLICY JUSTIFICATION mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with The Government of Israel has requested a possible sale of 6,900 Joint Direct Attack Munitions (JDAM) tail kits (which include 3,450 JDAM Anti-Jam KMU–556 (GBU–31) for MK–84 warheads; 1,725 KMU–557 (GBU–31) for BLU–109 warheads and 1,725 KMU– 572 (GBU–38) for MK–82 warheads); 3,450 MK–84 2000 lb General Purpose Bombs; 1,725 MK–82 500 lb General Purpose Bombs; 1,725 BLU–109 Bombs; 3,450 GBU–39 Small Diameter Bombs; 11,500 FMU–139 Fuses; 11,500 FMU– 143 Fuses; and 11,500 FMU–152 Fuses. Also included are spare and repair parts, support equipment, personnel training and training equipment, publications and technical documentation, U.S. Government and contractor engineering and technical support, and other related elements of program support. The estimated cost is $647 million. The United States is committed to the security of Israel, and it is vital to U.S. national interests to assist Israel to develop and maintain a strong and ready self-defense capability. This proposed sale is consistent with those objectives. 21:28 Dec 28, 2012 Jkt 229001 Transmittal No. 12–69 Notice of Proposed Issuance of Letter of Offer Pursuant to Section 36(b)(1) of the Arms Export Control Act, as amended Annex Item No. vii 1. The Joint Direct Attack Munition is a weapon guidance kit that converts existing unguided free-fall bombs into precision-guided ‘‘smart’’ munitions. By adding a new tail section containing Inertial Navigation System (INS) guidance/Global Positioning System (GPS) guidance to unguided bombs, the cost effective JDAM provides precise weapon delivery in any weather, given an accurate set of coordinates The INS, using updates from the GPS, helps guide the bomb to the target via the use of movable tail fins. Weapon accuracy is dependent on the quality of target coordinates and present position as entered into the guidance control unit. After weapon release, movable tail fins guide the weapon to the target coordinates. In addition to the tail kit, other elements in the overall system that are essential for successful employment include: Access to accurate target coordinates INS/GPS capability Operational Test and Evaluation Plan 2. The Guided Bomb Unit-39 (GBU– 39) Small Diameter Bomb (SDB) is a 250-lb precision guided munition that is intended to provide aircraft with the potential to simultaneously strike an PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 increased number of targets per sortie. Aircraft are able to carry four SDBs in place of one 2,000-lb bomb. The GBU– 39 is a conventional munition that is currently integrated in the F–15 air-toground platform. The SDB is equipped with a GPS-aided inertial navigation system to attack fixed/stationary targets such as fuel depots and bunkers. 3. If a technologically advanced adversary were to obtain knowledge of specific hardware, the information could be used to develop countermeasures which might reduce weapons system effectiveness or be used in the development of a system with similar or advanced capabilities.

Establishment of Federal Advisory Committee. AGENCY: ACTION: (vii) Sensitivity of Technology Israel—Munitions VerDate Mar<15>2010 The proposed sale of munitions will enable Israel to maintain operational capability of its existing systems. Israel, which already has these munitions in its inventory, will have no difficulty absorbing these additional munitions into its armed forces. The proposed sale of munitions will not alter the basic military balance in the region. The principal contractors will be The Boeing Company in St. Charles, Missouri; KDI Precision Products in Cincinnati, Ohio; ATK (Alliant Tech Systems, Inc.) in Edina, Minnesota; Kaman Dayron in Orlando, Florida; General Dynamics in Garland, Texas; and Elwood National Forge Co. in Irvine, Pennsylvania. 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 Israel. There will be no adverse impact on U.S. defense readiness as a result of this proposed sale. 77045 Under the provisions of 10 U.S.C. 2166(e), the Federal Advisory Committee Act of 1972 (5 U.S.C.
