1. (SBU) Refs B and D requested post assistance in conducting
a post-shipment check on license 05-948922 for export of
unclassified components and spare parts to the NATO E-3A

SIPDIS
AWACS Component Logistics Wing in Geilenkirchen, Germany.
The reason for the request was U.S. law enforcement entities
have recently investigated one of the sources in this
transaction for diversion of sensitive defense articles.
Accordingly, it was necessary to confirm the continued
delivery of multiple shipments of components, parts,
accessories, attachments, and associated equipment in support
of NATO E-3A AWACS aircraft fleet. Reftels also requested
confirmation that no Significant Military Equipment (SME) has
been shipped, as stipulated by provisos attached to the
license.

2. (SBU) On January 16, LTC Richard Roberts (USAF), Supply
Squadron Commander at the NATO E-3A Component in
Geilenkirchen contacted emboffs to confirm receipt of
multiple shipments of components and spare parts,
accessories, attachments, and associated equipment from
Northrop Grumman-LTSI under license 05-948922. Roberts
e-mailed us a multiple sheet listing of shipments confirming
receipt of ordered materials and said he was unaware of any
problems in terms of nondelivery, missing shipments, or
delivery of non-ordered goods. Roberts also confirmed that
no SME had been shipped, as per license provisos. Post
forwarded LTC Roberts' e-mail to PM/DTCC Blue Lantern
Coordinator.
