The US Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) has approved possible sale of $785 million worth of munitions, sustainment and support to the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
The UAE requested $740Mln in guidance kits and bombs, as well as $45Mln of non-major defense equipment, the release noted, DSCA said in a statement Tuesday.
"The State Department has made a determination approving a possible Foreign Military Sale to the United Arab Emirates for munitions, sustainment and support," DSCA said.
The sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping the UAE remain an active member of Operation Inherent Resolve, which is working to defeat the Daesh terrorist group, according to the release.
The contractor providing the items will be determined during negotiations.
CAE has been awarded contracts by the General Headquarters (GHQ) of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Armed Forces to design and develop a comprehensive Naval Training Centre (NTC) for the UAE Navy. The purpose-built NTC facility will feature a range of integrated ship simulation-based training suites as well as maritime aircraft sensor stations that will be used to deliver training for individuals, command teams, and whole ship crews
