WASHINGTON, July 17 (UPI) -- If the U.S. Congress approves, the United States will sell Poland nine Ground Controlled Approach Radar Systems and associated equipment.

The deal, under the U.S. military's Foreign Military Sales program, would be worth an estimated $200 million, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency reported.

The agency, in its notification to Congress, said the package arrangement would include nine systems with PSR, PAR, SSR, Very High-Frequency/Ultra High-Frequency radio equipment, site surveys, systems installation and testing, spare and repair parts, tools and test equipment.

Also included would be personnel training and training equipment, technical data and publications, warranties, U.S. government and contractor engineering, technical and logistics support services.

"The proposed sale will further standardize the air navigation and approach radar capabilities of Poland, increasing aviation safety across the country and region," the agency said. "This is a continuation of a modernization program started several years ago.

"Delivery of this system will support Poland's F-16 and C-130 programs," it said.
