Note Text

"The Benefitting Country will provide the Security Cooperation Organization (SCO) and/or other appropriate U.S. Government representatives a written physical security and accountability control plan prior to receipt of the equipment.

Weapons storage facilities must be conducted and certified by MILDEPs in accordance with DoD Manual 5100.76-M, "Physical Security of Sensitive Conventional Arms, Ammunition and Explosives," before EEUM-designated weapons systems are delivered.

The benefitting country agrees to adhere to the following security requirements associated with the Javelin Missile System. The Office of the Provost Marshal General, Army Physical Security (DAPM-MPD-PS), U.S. Army may approve modification of specified requirements to meet indigenous conditions.

  1. Javelin Missile: The Javelin Missile is accorded Category I protection as addressed in Department of Defense (DoD) 5100.76-M, (current revision), "Physical Security of Sensitive Conventional Arms, Ammunition, and Explosives." The Javelin Missile must be stored in facilities that are at least equivalent in strength to U.S. Army requirements as specified in subparagraph a., below. The benefitting country also agrees to comply with U.S Army specified requirements for lighting, doors, locks, keys, fencing, and surveillance and guard systems. Specific requirements must be agreed upon and installed prior to delivery of the missile system. U.S. Army representatives must be allowed to verify security measures and procedures established for implementation of these requirements.

    1. Magazines: Reinforced concrete, arch type, earth covered whose construction is at least equivalent in strength to the requirements of DoD 6055.9-STD (current revision), "Ammunition and Explosives Safety Standards" will be used for storage (specifications will be provided to the benefitting country).

    2. Lighting: Lighting will be provided for exterior doors and along perimeter barriers. Security lighting requirements will conform to ammunition and safety requirements of Appendix C, U.S. Army Technical Manual 9-1300-206 (with Changes), (specifications will be provided to the benefitting country).

    3. Doors, Locks and Keys: Exterior doors must be class five steel vault doors secured by two-key operated high security padlocks and a high security shrouded hasp. Keys must be secured separately to ensure effective two-man control of access (i.e., two authorized persons must be present to enter). Use of master or multiple keys is prohibited.

    4. Fencing: Fencing must be 6-foot (minimum) steel chain link with 1-foot overhang mounting on steel or reinforced concrete posts over firm base. Clear zones must be established 30 feet inside and 12 feet outside the perimeter fence (provided there is adequate space).

    5. Surveillance and Guard: A full time guard or combination guard force and intrusion detection system (IDS) must be provided. When IDS is not operational, 24-hour guard surveillance is required.

    6. Access to Storage Facilities: Two authorized persons must be present during any activity that affords access to storage facilities containing the Javelin Missile. Lock and key procedures must be developed to ensure that no individual can be unescorted or have unobserved access to Javelin storage facilities.

  2. The Javelin Command Launch Unit (CLU): The benefitting country will ensure that the Javelin CLU is accorded Category III protection as addressed in DoD 5100.76-M (current revision), "Physical Security of Sensitive Conventional Arms, Ammunition, and Explosives." U.S. Army representatives will be allowed to verify security measures and procedures established for these requirements.

  3. Accountability:

    1. Each month, the benefitting country will perform a 100% physical inventory of rounds and CLUs. A 100% physical inventory of rounds and CLUs by serial number will be taken quarterly of weapons issued at the operational unit level. A 100% physical inventory of rounds and CLUs by serial number will be taken semiannually of weapons stored or retained at installation, depot, post, or base level. To ensure verification, two authorized people will conduct all inventories. Rounds expended during peacetime must be accounted for by serial number.

    2. The Security Cooperation Organization (SCO) and/or other appropriate U.S. Government representative (i.e., ODC, JUSMAG, MILGRP, etc.) will be permitted to conduct a U.S. inspection and inventory by serial number annually. Inventory and accountability records maintained by the benefitting country will be made available for review upon U.S. Government request.

  4. Transportation: Movement of the Javelin will meet U.S. standards for safeguarding classified material in transit as specified by the U.S. Government in DoD 5100.76-M (current revision), "Physical Security of Sensitive Conventional Arms, Munitions, and Explosives" (standards of which must be provided to the benefitting country) and paragraph 5. below.

  5. Access to Hardware and Classified Information:

    1. Access to hardware and related classified information will be limited to military and civilian personnel of the purchasing Government (except for authorized U.S. personnel as specified herein) who have the proper security clearance and who have an established need to know the information in order to perform their duties. Information released will be limited to that necessary to perform assigned functions/operational responsibility, and, where possible, will be oral/visual only.

    2. Missile maintenance that requires access to the interior of the operational system, beyond that required of the operator, must be performed under U.S. control.

  6. Compromise, Loss, Theft, and Unauthorized Use: The benefitting country will report to the U.S. Army by the most expeditious means any instances of compromise, unauthorized use, loss or theft of any Javelin materiel or related information. This will be followed by a prompt investigation and the results will be provided to the U.S. Army.

  7. Third-Party Access: The recipient will agree that no information on Javelin will be released to third-country Government, person, or other third party entity without U.S. approval.

  8. Damaged/Expended Materiel: The U.S. Army must be notified immediately to determine disposition of damaged Javelin missile rounds. When Javelin missile rounds are expended, the benefitting country will provide certification by serial number to the SCO with verification by a U.S. Army representative whenever possible.

  9. Conditions of Shipment and Storage for Javelin and Javelin variants: The two principle components of the Javelin missile system, the Command Launch Unit, and the missile in its disposable launch tube must be stored in separate locations. The two storage locations must be physically separated sufficiently so that penetration of the security at one site must not place the second at risk. The Command Launch Units and the missiles must be shipped and transported in separate vehicles or vessels except when under the conditions of paragraph 10. below.

  10. Conditions of Use: The two principle components of the Javelin missile system, the Command Launch Unit, and the missile in its disposable launch tube, may be brought together and assembled under the following circumstances:

    1. In the event of hostilities or imminent hostilities.

    2. For firing as part of regularly scheduled training; however, only those rounds to be fired will be withdrawn from storage and assembled.

    3. For lot testing; however, only rounds to be tested will be withdrawn from storage and assembled.

    4. When systems are deployed as part of the point defenses of high-priority installations or activities (e.g., key government buildings, military headquarters, essential utilities, air defense facilities).

  11. Demilitarization/Disposal: At the end of their useful life, Javelin missile rounds and CLUs must be demilitarized or disposed of using a BPC LOA. If done in-country, the SCO must approve the benefitting country's plans and ensure compliance with U.S. standards. The benefitting country must use guidance provided in DoD 4160.21-M-1 (current version) or request technical assistance from the U.S. Army or the Defense Logistics Agency Disposition Services. The transfer of demilitarized Javelin missile rounds or CLUs to a private entity requires approval of the U.S. Government."
