State Dept OKs $250M Military Education, Training Support Deal With Saudi Arabia

The State Department has given Saudi Arabia the green light to acquire professional military education, English language training assistance and technical training support under a potential $250 million foreign military sales agreement.

Saudi Arabia’s navy blanket order program for training services also covers technical documentation, logistics, program support and contractor and U.S. government engineering assistance, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency said Tuesday.

Kratos Defense & Security Solutions (Nasdaq: KTOS) will serve as the prime contractor in the transaction that seeks to help the Middle Eastern country’s naval force perform patrol operations, protect critical infrastructure and counter maritime threats.

The proposed FMS sale would call for Kratos to deploy approximately 88 representatives to Saudi Arabia to provide staff training support for a three-year period.

DSCA said it notified Congress of the proposed transaction Monday.
