The estimated cost is $225 million. The proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by improving the security of a NATO ally that has been, and continues to be, an important force for political stability and economic progress in North America. Canada will use this capability to enhance the survivability of its CP–140 Long Range Patrol aircraft and crew. The LAIRCM system will provide Canada’s CP–140 fleet with defensive countermeasures against enemy attacks. Canada, which already has AN/AAQ– 24(V) systems as part of its C–17 fleet, will have no difficulty absorbing these additional systems.

The AN/AAQ–24(V) Large Aircraft Infrared Countermeasures system is a stand-along Directional Infrared Countermeasures (DIRCM) system that protects aircraft against ground launched infrared (IR) missiles. The AN/AAQ–24(V) is a small, passive/ active, electro-optic, threat warning device used to detect surface-to-air IR missiles fired at helicopters and fixedwing aircraft and automatically provides countermeasures as well as audio and visual warning messages to the aircrew. The basic system consists of multiple Missile Approach Warning Sensor (MAWS) units, Guardian Laser Turret Assembly (GLTA), Computer Processor (CP), Control Indicator (CI), and a User Data Module (UDM) card containing the laser jam codes. The UDM card is loaded into the CP prior to flight and is removed and put in secure storage when not in use. The set of MAWS units (AAR–54) is mounted on the aircraft exterior to provide omni-directional situational awareness. The MAWS detects the rocket plume of missiles and sends appropriate signals to the CP for processing. The CP analyzes the data and automatically deploys the appropriate countermeasures via the GLTA. The CP also contains comprehensive BIT circuitry. The CI displays the incoming threat so that the pilot can also take appropriate action. The maximum classification for all related hardware, software, technical data and documentation is Secret. 2. If a technologically advanced adversary were to obtain knowledge of the specific hardware and software elements, the information could be used to develop countermeasures that might reduce weapon system effectiveness or be used in the development of a system with similar or advanced capabilities. 3. A determination has been made that the recipient country can provide the same degree of protection for the sensitive technology being released as the U.S. Government.

Item No. vii
    (vii) Sensitivity of Technology:
    1. The AN/AAQ-24(V) Large Aircraft Infrared Countermeasures system 
is a stand-along Directional Infrared Countermeasures (DIRCM) system 
that protects aircraft against ground launched infrared (IR) missiles. 
The AN/AAQ-24(V) is a small, passive/active, electro-optic, threat 
warning device used to detect surface-to-air IR missiles fired at 
helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft and automatically provides 
countermeasures as well as audio and visual warning messages to the

be used to develop countermeasures that might reduce weapon system 
effectiveness or be used in the development of a system with similar or 
advanced capabilities.
