TheÂ State DepartmentÂ 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 Arabiaâs 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 AgencyÂ said Tuesday.
Kratos Defense & Security SolutionsÂ (Nasdaq: KTOS) will serve as the prime contractor in the transaction that seeks to help the Middle Eastern countryâs 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 supportÂ for a three-year period.
DSCA said it notified Congress of the proposed transaction Monday.
