The contract, if approved by Congress, would include associated equipment, parts and support and would be worth $36 million.
"This proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by increasing the ability of the Republic of Singapore to contribute to regional security," the agency said, "Its contributions to counter-piracy and counter-terrorism efforts continue to stabilize a critical chokepoint where much of the world's goods and services transit en route to and from the Asia Pacific region."
Associated equipment to be supplied under the Foreign Military Sales package includes eight CATM-9X-2 captive air training missiles, five CATM-9X-2 Block II missile guidance units, two AIM-9X-2 Block II tactical guidance units, containers, spares and repair parts.
"The Republic of Singapore requires these missiles to meet current and future threats of enemy aircraft," the agency said. "The proposed sale will enhance RSAF's ability to operate with coalition forces in bilateral and multilateral exercises and potential air defense operations."
The prime contractor for the deal would be Raytheon Missile Systems.
