WASHINGTON, - The State Department has made a determination approving a possible Foreign Military Sale to Singapore for the F-16 Block 52 Upgrade Program and associated equipment, parts and logistical support for an estimated cost of $130 million. The Defense Security Cooperation Agency delivered the required certification notifying Congress of this possible sale on May 5, 2015.

The Government of Singapore has requested a possible sale for the upgrade of 60 F-16C/D/D+ aircraft. The upgrades will address reliability, supportability, and combat effectiveness concerns associated with its aging F-16 fleet. This proposed sale contains additional requirements not previously identified in congressional notification 13-67. 

Items included in the proposed sale are :
-50 Joint Helmet-Mounted Cueing System, 
-90 AN/APX-126 Advanced Identification Friend or Foe Interrogator/Transponders, 
-150 LAU-129 Missile Launchers, 
-8 KMU-572/B 500lbs Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) Tail Kits, 
-9 KMU-556/B 2000lbs JDAM Tail Kits, 
-2 FMU-152 Munition Fuze Units, 
-10 MK-82 500lbs Inert Bombs, 
-3 MK-84 2000lbs Inert Bombs, 
-12 LN-260 Embedded Global Positioning System/Inertial Navigation Systems (GPS/INS), 
-20 GBU-39/B Small Diameter Bombs (SDB), 
-92 Link-16 Multifunctional Information Distribution System/ Low Volume Terminals 
-2 SDB Guided Test Vehicles, 
-Computer Control Group and Tail Assembly for GBU-49, 
-DSU-38/40 Proximity Sensor for JDAM, 
-GBU-39 Tactical training Round, 
-ADU-890/E and 891 Adaptor Group for Common Munitions Built-In-Test/Reprogramming 
-Encryption/Decryption devise, 
-MIDS/LVT Ground Support Station, 
spare and repair parts, repair and return, support equipment, publications and technical documentation, personnel training and training equipment, tool and test equipment, U.S. Government and contractor engineering, technical and logistics support services, and other related elements of program and logistics support. The estimated cost is $130 million.

This proposed sale contributes to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by increasing the ability of the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) to support regional security. The proposed sale improves the security of a strategic partner which has been, and continues to be, an important force for political stability and economic progress in the Asia-Pacific region.

The proposed upgrade improves both the capabilities and reliability of the RSAF’s aging fleet of F-16s. The improved capability, survivability, and reliability of the newly upgraded F-16s will enhance the RSAF’s ability to defend its borders and contribute to coalition operations. The RSAF will have no difficulty absorbing this additional equipment and support into its armed forces.
