The US Defense Security Cooperation Agency has notified Congress of the possible sale of six AN/TPQ-36(V)10 Firefinder radar systems, 18 AN/TPQ-48 lightweight counter-mortar radars and associated equipment to Iraq.

Under the estimated $299m foreign military sale, Iraq has also requested for three meteorological measuring sets, 36 export variant single-channel ground and airborne radio systems, six advanced field artillery tactical data systems and other related logistics support.

The Firefinder radars will advance Iraq’s efforts to develop an integrated ground defence capability and a strong and dedicated military force.

The radars will enable Iraq to assume some of the missions currently accomplished by US and coalition forces and sustain itself in its efforts to establish stability to Iraq.

Thales Raytheon Systems, Northrop, Smith-Detection Technologies, ITT Corporation, Raytheon, L-3 Communications and SRCTec will be the prime contractors.
