The estimated cost is $76 million. This proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping to improve the security of a major ally which has been, and continues to be a staunch coalition partner and important force for political stability throughout the world. The proposed sale will improve Australia’s maritime defense capability to contribute to national defense and future coalition operations. Australia will use the enhanced capability as a deterrent to regional threats and to strengthen its shipboard defense. Australia will have no difficulty absorbing this new upgrade 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 Raytheon Missile Systems Company in Tucson, Arizona. 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 Australia. There will be no adverse impact on U.S. defense readiness as a result of this proposed sale.

The CIWS Block 1B Baseline 2 upgrade represents an increase in threat acquisition and firepower accuracy over the Block 1B Baseline 1 and CIWS Block 1A configurations. The Baseline 2 variant includes a radar improvement upgrade and an electro-optical sensor to improve weapon system performance against low-observable; sea-skimming threats, and provides improved capability to concentrate hard-kill ordnance in a tighter pattern on the threat. The CIWS mount and spare hardware are Unclassified. The radar improvement/upgrade is the most sensitive portion of the Baseline 2 configuration. The hardware, software, and the majority of the technical documentation are Unclassified. 2. The CIWS Block 1B Baseline 2 upgrade will result in the transfer of highly accurate close-in engagement technology and ship self-defense capability. The equipment, hardware, and the majority of documentation are Unclassified. The embedded software and operational performance are classified Confidential. The seeker/ electro-optical control section and the target detector are Unclassified, but contain sensitive state-of-the-art technology. Twelve sets of Technical Manuals used to support the operation and provisioning of organizational-level maintenance are Confidential. The technical and operational data identified above is classified to protect vulnerabilities, design and performance parameters, and similar critical information. 3. 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 advanced capabilities. 4. 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. This sale is necessary in furtherance of the U.S. foreign policy and national security objectives outlined in the Policy Justification. 5.
