Download as PDF 28986 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 97 / Wednesday, May 20, 2015 / Notices POLICY JUSTIFICATION mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Japan—UGM–84L Harpoon Block II Missiles The Government of Japan has requested a possible sale of forty eight (48) UGM–84L Harpoon Block II Missiles, containers, spare and repair parts, support equipment, publications and technical documentation, personnel training and training equipment, U.S. Government and contractor logistics and technical support services, and other related elements of logistics and program support. The estimated cost is $199 million. This proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States. Japan is one of the major political and economic powers in East Asia and the Western Pacific and a key partner of the United States in ensuring peace and stability in that region. It is vital to the U.S. national interest to assist Japan in developing and maintaining a strong and ready selfdefense capability. This proposed sale is consistent with U.S. foreign policy and national security objectives and the 1960 Treaty of Mutual Cooperation and Security. Japan intends to use the Harpoon Block II missiles to supplement its existing Harpoon missile capability. This sale will strengthen the capabilities of the Japan Maritime Self Defense Force and enhance its interoperability with U.S. Naval forces. Japan, which has Harpoon missiles in its inventory, will have no difficulty absorbing these additional missiles into its armed forces. The proposed sale of this weapon system will not alter the basic military balance in the region. The principal contractor will be The Boeing Company in St. Louis, Missouri. There are no known offset agreements in connection with this potential sale. Implementation of this proposed sale will not require any additional U.S. Government or contractor personnel in Japan. However, U.S. Government or contractor personnel in-country visits will be required on a temporary basis in conjunction with program technical and management oversight and support requirements. There will be no adverse impact on United States defense readiness as a result of this proposed sale. Transmittal No. 15–34 Notice of Proposed Issuance of Letter of Offer Pursuant to Section 36(b)(1) of the Arms Export Control Act Annex Item No. vii (vii) Sensitivity of Technology: VerDate Sep<11>2014 23:50 May 19, 2015 Jkt 235001 1. The UGM–84L Harpoon Block II missile is a submarine launched AntiSurface Warfare (ASuW) missile that provides Naval forces with a capability to engage targets in both the ‘‘blue water’’ regions and the littorals of the world. The Harpoon Block II missile, including publications, documentation, operations, supply, maintenance, and training to be conveyed with this proposed sale have the highest classification level of Confidential. 2. The Harpoon Block II missile incorporates components, software, and technical design information that are considered sensitive. The following Harpoon Block II missile components being conveyed by the proposed sale that are considered sensitive and are classified Confidential include: a. The Radar seeker b. The Global Position System/Inertial Navigation System (GPS/INS) c. Operational Flight Program (OFP) Software d. Missile operational characteristics and performance data These elements are essential to the ability of the Harpoon Block II missile to selectively engage hostile targets under a wide range of operational, tactical and environmental conditions. 3. If a technologically advanced adversary obtained knowledge of the specific hardware or software in the proposed sale, 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. 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. All defense articles and services listed in this transmittal have been authorized for release and export to the Government of Japan.
