Japan is planning to buy E-767 Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) Mission Computing Upgrade (MCU) for an estimated cost of $950 million.
The Government of Japan has also requested for 4 Electronic Support Measure (ESM) Systems, 8 AN/UPX-40 Next Generation Identify Friend or Foe (NGIFF), 8 AN/APX-119 IFF Transponder, and 4 KIV-77 Cryptographic Computers with Boeing being a prime contractor.
This proposed sale is consistent with U.S. objectives and the 1960 Treaty of Mutual Cooperation and Security.
This sale will provide Japan with an upgraded AWACS command and control capability. This upgrade will allow Japan’s AWACS fleet to be more compatible with the U.S. Air Force AWACS fleet baseline and provide for greater interoperability. Japan will use this enhanced capability to provide for its self-defense.
