SUBJECT: BLUE LANTERN LEVEL 3: PRE-LICENSE END-USE CHECK ON
APPLICATION 05-050100474

REF: A. SECSTATE 46556
B. LAMELA-JOUBERT-LIN EMAIL OF 6/6/08

1. (SBU) As requested reftel, Post conducted inquiries into
the development and end-use relating to electronic components
referenced in application 05-050100474. Representatives from
Indra confirmed to post on June 16 that the company is using
reftel components to develop both civilian and military
versions of the Lanza Long Range surveillance radar. The
military version of the Lanza radar would be sent to
Portugal's Ministry of Defense for a NATO project (NATO
project 5W106001), and the civilian version of the Lanza
radar would go to the Uruguayan Air Force's National
Directorate of Civil Aviation to be used for air traffic
control purposes.

2. (SBU) Each of the four reftel components shipped to Indra
would be used in a separate Lanza radar unit: one for
Portugal's Ministry of Defense, two for the Uruguayan Air
Force's National Directorate of Civil Aviation, and the last
unit would be kept by Indra to support and service the
contracts with the above end-users. Representatives from
Indra confirmed that there would be no other entity involved
in developing the Lanza radar.

3. (SBU) Indra further indicated development of the radars
would not be complete until 2009 and that the company would
file a request for the proper shipping permits at that time.
Addresses of the two non-Indra end-users are listed below.
