State Dept Approves $339M General Atomics Reaper UAVs Sale to Netherlands

ReaperThe U.S. State Department has cleared a potential $339 million foreign military sale of General Atomics-built Reaper drones and associated spares and services to the Dutch government.

The Netherlands asked to procure four MQ-9 Block 5 unmanned aerial vehicles and 82 related equipment such as ground terminal substations, radio systems and Honeywell-made (NYSE: HON) turboprop engines from the U.S., the Defense Security Cooperation Agency said Friday.

DSCA notified Congress last week of the possible sales deal that also includes training, logistics, engineering and technical support.

General Atomics could also deliver initial and readiness spares kits intended to support up to 3, 400 flight hours of Reaper aircraft for a three-year operational period.
