Certificate of Alternate Compliance for USS OREGON (SSN 793), 79002-79003 [2020-26922]

Download as PDF jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES 79002 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 236 / Tuesday, December 8, 2020 / Notices missile includes a high off-boresight seeker, enhanced countermeasure rejection capability, low drag/high angle of attack airframe and the ability to integrate with a helmet mounted cueing system. The software algorithms are the most sensitive portion of the AIM-9X missile. The software continues to be modified via a pre-planned product improvement (P3I) program to improve counter-countermeasure capabilities. Purchase will include AIM-9X Guidance Sections. 4. The GBU-54 Laser Joint Direct Attack Munition (LJDAM) is a 500 pound JDAM which incorporates all the capabilities of the JDAM guidance tail kit and adds a precision laser guidance set. The LJDAM gives the weapon system an optional semi-active laser guidance in addition to the Inertial Navigation System/Global Positioning System (INS/GPS) guidance. This provides the optional capability to strike moving targets. The GBU-54 consists of a laser guidance set, KMU-572 warhead specific tail kit, and MK-82 bomb body. 5. The GBU-53/B Small Diameter Bomb Increment II (SDB II) is a 250-lb class precision-guided, semiautonomous, conventional, air-toground munition used to defeat moving targets through adverse weather from standoff range. The SDB II has deployable wings and fins and uses GPS/INS guidance, network-enabled datalink (Link-16 and UHF), and a multi-mode seeker (millimeter wave radar, imaging infrared) to autonomously search, acquire, track, and defeat targets. The SDB II employs a multi-effects warhead (Blast, Fragmentation, and ShapedCharge) for maximum lethality against armored and soft targets. The SDB II weapon system consists of the AUR weapon; a 4-place common carriage system; and mission planning system application. a. SDB II Guided Test Vehicles (GTV) is an SDB II configuration used for land or sea range-based testing of the SDB II weapon system. The GTV has common flight characteristics of an SDB II AUR, but in place of the multi-effects warhead is a Flight Termination, Tracking, and Telemetry (FTTT) subassembly that mirrors the AUR multi-effects warhead’s size and mass properties, but provides safe flight termination, free flight tracking and telemetry of encrypted data from the GTV to the data receivers. The SDB II GTV can have either inert or live fuses. All other flight control, guidance, data-link, and seeker functions are representative of the SDB II AUR. b. SDB II Captive Carry Reliability Test (CCRT) vehicles are an SDB II configuration primarily used for reliability data collection during VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:19 Dec 07, 2020 Jkt 253001 carriage. The CCRT has common characteristics of an SDB II AUR but with an inert warhead and fuze. The CCRT has an inert mass in place of the warhead that mimics the warhead’s mass properties. The CCRT is a flight capable representative of the SDB II AUR but is not approved for release from any aircraft. Since all other flight control, guidance, data-link, and seeker functions are representative of the SDB II AUR, this configuration could be used for any purpose where an inert round without telemetry or termination capability would be useful. 6. This sale will involve the release of sensitive and/or classified technology. The highest level of classification of information included in this potential sale is SECRET. 7. 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. 8. A determination has been made that Switzerland can provide substantially 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. 9. All defense articles and services listed in this transmittal are authorized for release and export to the Government of Switzerland.
