SUBJECT: BLUE LANTERN LEVEL 3: APPLICATION 05-050095903 PRE-LICENSE
REF: STATE 37830
1. (U) We have no objection to this application.
2. (SBU) We spoke by telephone on April 30 with K.S. Manjunath,
Senior Stores Officer at the Defence Avionics Research Establishment
(DARE) in Bangalore. Manjunath confirmed that DARE had placed the
order for the items listed in reftel, para 5. We asked where the
items would be installed and used; he said that they would remain in
DARE's facilities in Bangalore. He also invited us to visit DARE
and inspect the items once they are received.
3. (SBU) We explained to Manjunath that these items are on the U.S.
Munitions List and are therefore controlled items that may not be
re-sold or transferred without explicit USG authorization.
Manjunath said that he understood these restrictions and emphasized
that DARE intends to use these items at its facility and has no
plans to sell or transfer them to another party.
