The US State Department has approved $58.2 million for the sale of AN/AAR-57A (V) 7 Common Missile Warning Systems (CMWS) to be employed on the Netherlands’ AH-64D Apache helicopters.

The Defense Security Cooperation Agency delivered the required certification notifying Congress of this possible sale today.

The Government of the Netherlands has requested the possible sale of 32 AN/AAR-57A(V)7 Common Missile Warning Systems (CMWS).  This would be in addition to the 33 AN/AVR-2B laser detecting sets with various support elements included in an earlier FMS case valued at $8.2 million, DSCA said in a statement Monday.

Also included in the amended FMS case would be mission equipment, hardware and services required to implement customer unique post modifications, communication and navigation equipment, special tools and test equipment, ground support equipment, technical data, publications, MWO/ECP, technical assistance, and training, and other related elements of logistics and program support.

The principal contractor will be BAE Systems.  There are no known offset agreements proposed in connection with this potential sale.
