Non-MDE items and services to support the upgrade/ remanufacturing of the existing AH-64D Block II Apache Attack Helicopters to AH-64E configuration, training devices, helmets, simulators, generators, transportation, wheeled vehicles and organization equipment, spare and repair parts, support equipment, tools and test equipment, technical data and publications, personnel training and training equipment, U.S. Government and contractor engineering, technical, VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:44 Dec 26, 2019 Jkt 250001 and logistics support services, and other related elements of logistics and program support. The estimated total cost was $1.191 billion. Major Defense Equipment (MDE) constituted $829 million of this total. This transmittal reports the inclusion of the following MDE items not previously notified: 1) Seventeen (17) Radar Electronic Units (REUs) to replace two (2) legacy Line Replaceable Units (Programmable Signal Processor and Low Power Radio Frequency) as an upgrade to the AN/ APG-78 Fire Control Radar (FCR). (The REU was designated as MDE subsequent to notification of the original CN.); 2) One (1) Longbow Crew Trainer (LCT) (in addition to the one previously notified); and 3) Fifty-eight (58) new aircraft engines. The inclusion of these items will result in a net increase in MDE cost of $101 million and non-MDE cost of $68 million. The total case value will increase to $1.36 billion. (iv) Significance: This equipment will support the capabilities of RNLAF’s Apache fleet and enhance interoperability with the United States. Without the REU subcomponent, the Fire Control Radar (FCR) system will be nonoperational. Without the second LCT, the RNLAF will not be able to effectively train their pilots and maintainers, negatively impacting the RNLAF’s operational ability. (v) Justification: This proposed sale will support the foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping to improve the security of a NATO ally which is an important force for political stability and economic progress in Northern Europe. (vi) Sensitivity of Technology: The Radar Electronic Unit (REU) is a component upgrade to the AN/APG-78 Fire Control Radar (FCR). The REU replaces two legacy Line Replaceable Units (Programmable Signal Processor PO 00000 Frm 00045 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 and Low Power Radio Frequency), achieving a weight reduction of approximately 85 pounds, with improved reliability, increased processing power, growth for new modes/capabilities and replacement of obsolete components. The Longbow Crew Trainer (LCT) is designated as a high functional and high fidelity flight trainer, meeting required design requirements established and periodically updated under programmatic design review.
