The total estimated value of MDE is $40 million. The total overall estimated cost is $70 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 strategic partner that has been and continues to be an important force for political stability and economic progress in the Middle East. The Government of Egypt intends to expand its existing air defense architecture to counter threats posed by air attack. This will contribute to Egypt’s military goal of updating its capabilities while further enhancing interoperability among Egypt, the United States, and other allies. Egypt will have no difficulty absorbing this equipment 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 involved in this program is Thales Raytheon Systems, Fullerton, California. There are no known offset agreements proposed in connection with this potential sale. Implementation of this proposed sale will require ten (10) U.S. Government or contractor representatives to travel to Egypt for a period of 8 weeks for equipment checkout and training. There will be no adverse impact on U.S. defense readiness as a result of this proposed sale. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:52 Nov 03, 2016 Jkt 241001 Item No. vii (vii) Sensitivity of Technology: 1. The AN/MPQ–64 Sentinel Radar System is a fielded air defense radar system in the Army inventory. Sentinel is a derivative of the AN/TPQ–36 Firefinder System used for artillery detection and the AN/TPQ–36A Norwegian adapted Hawk system. The Sentinel radar (AN/MPQ–64) is the sensor for the Short Range Air Defense (SHORAD) weapon systems, including the Avenger and any ground launcher Stinger platforms. Sentinel is a mobile phased array radar that provides highly accurate 3 dimensional radar track data to using systems via the Forward Area Air Defense (FAAD) Command, Control, and Intelligence (C2I) node. Sentinel’s detection range, mobility, and 360 degree azimuth coverage allow it to support SHORAD weapons located throughout the division area. Sentinel acquires, tracks, and reports cruise missiles, unmanned aerial vehicles, fixed and rotary wing aircraft in clutter and electronic counter measures environments. The Sentinel Export configuration (AN/MPQ–64Fl) is a derivative of the U.S. Army’s Improved Sentinel Radar. 2. The Sentinel consists of a radarbased sensor system with the Ml 152 HMMWV as the prime mover and the MEP–1041 Advanced Mobile Medium Power Source (AMMPS) Tactical Quiet Generator as the power source. The sensor is an advanced battlefield radar capable of X-Band air defense phasedarray with an instrumented range of 75 kilometers with a rotating antenna providing 360 degree azimuth coverage for acquisition and tracking. 3. Sentinel has only one item currently designated Critical Program Information (CPI) and that is the Sentinel software modules containing routines for electronic counter-counter measures (ECCM) that have been determined to be CPI. 4. These items are classified IAW EO 12958 section 1.5, Classification categories as category 1.5(e) because they contain scientific, technological, or economic matters relative to the national security. Reports, test data, and all Sentinel related media that discloses operational parameters, performance, characteristics, ECCM techniques, vulnerabilities, limitations or performance weaknesses shall be classified at the highest level based on PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 76931 the information being conveyed as referenced in the Sentinel Security Classification Guide. Distribution of technical performance and system capabilities reports and data shall only be released up to the CONFIDENTIAL level. It is not possible to obtain the Sentinel wartime reserved frequencies by reverse engineering, testing, or analyzing the unclassified Sentinel end item. 5. All defense articles and services listed in this transmittal are authorized for release and export to the Government of Egypt.
