Transmittal No. 13-40
France – MQ-9 Reapers
WASHINGTON, June 27, 2013 – The Defense Security Cooperation Agency notified Congress today of a
possible Foreign Military Sale to France of 16 MQ-9 Reaper Remotely Piloted Aircraft and associated
equipment, parts, training and logistical support for an estimated cost of $1.5 billion.
The Government of France has requested a possible sale of:
16 MQ-9 Reaper Remotely Piloted Aircraft
8 Mobile Ground Control Stations (GCS)
48 Honeywell TPE331-10T Turboprop Engines (16 installed and 32 spares)
24 Satellite Earth Terminal Substations
40 Ku Band Link-Airborne Communication Systems
40 General Atomics Lynx (exportable) Synthetic Aperture Radar/Ground Moving Target
Indicator (SAR/GMTI) Systems
40 AN/DAS-1 Multi-Spectral Targeting Systems (MTS)-B
40 Ground Data Terminals
40 ARC-210 Radio Systems
40 Embedded Global Positioning System/Inertial Navigation Systems
48 AN/APX-119 and KIV-119 Identify Friend or Foe (IFF) Systems
Also provided are spare and repair parts, communication, test, and support equipment, publications and
technical documentation, airworthiness and maintenance support, site surveys and bed down planning,
personnel training and training equipment, operational flight test, U.S. Government and contractor technical and
logistics personnel services, and other related elements of logistics support. The estimated cost is $1.5 billion.
France is one of the major political and economic powers in Europe and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization
(NATO) and an ally of the United States in the pursuit of peace and stability. It is vital to the U.S. national
interest to assist France to develop and maintain a strong and ready self-defense capability. This potential sale
will enhance the intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) capability of the French military in support
of national, NATO, United Nation-mandated, and other coalition operations. Commonality of ISR capabilities
will greatly increase interoperability between the U.S and French military and peacekeeping forces.
France requests these capabilities to provide for the defense of its deployed troops, regional security, and
interoperability with the U.S. The proposed sale will improve France’s capability to meet current and future
threats by providing improved ISR coverage that promotes increased battlefield situational awareness,
anticipates enemy intent, augments combat search and rescue, and provides ground troop support. France,
which already has remotely piloted aircraft in its inventory, will have no difficulty absorbing this additional
capability.
The proposed sale of this equipment and support will not alter the basic military balance in the region.
The principal contractor will be General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, Inc. in San Diego, California. There
are no known offset agreements proposed in connection with this potential sale.
Implementation of this proposed sale will require multiple trips to France and deployed location for U.S.
contractor representatives to provide initial launch, recovery, and maintenance support.
There will be no adverse impact on U.S. defense readiness as a result of this proposed sale.
This notice of a potential sale is required by law and does not mean the sale has been concluded.
