SUBJECT: BLUE LANTERN POST-SHIPMENT END USE CHECK ON
LICENSE 050102478
1. This is an action message. See paragraphs 2-4.
2. The Department's Office of Defense Trade Controls
Compliance (PM/DTCC) requests post assistance in conducting a
post-shipment check for the export of AWACS aircraft spare
parts to France. Post is requested to complete this Blue
Lantern check within 45 days. Lack of response to a Blue
Lantern check will affect pending and future licenses

Battle information shows that the French Air Force operates
four U.S.-origin E-3F Sentry AWACS aircraft. However, the
purchase order from the Foreign Intermediate Consignee,
Satori, states that the Foreign End User of the spare parts
is the French Army.
4. ACTION: Please contact the French Ministry of Defense and
verify its request for the quantity and type of the
commodities listed below. Please also confirm intended use.
END ACTION.
