Chilean C-130 lands at Edwards, picks up radars

chili-c130a
Two SENTINEL radar systems are loaded onto a Chilean C-130 July 1 at Edwards Air Force Base as part of a foreign military sales case for Chile. Chile intends to use the radars to modernize its armed forces by expanding its existing air defense architecture to counter threats posed by air attack. The pick-up was crucial to ensure Chile received the systems to conduct scheduled training. The FMS case was a priority case for the Geographic Combatant Command, SOUTHCOM, and is expected to enhance greater interoperability between Chile and the U.S., and among other allies. Edwards AFB personnel worked closely with personnel from the U.S. Army Security Assistance Command and the Chilean Air Force to coordinate the flight and loading.
