MHI distances itself from PAC-2 export reports

07 July 2014

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) has distanced itself from media reports in Japan stating that the company is close to securing an export of sensors to be integrated onto the Raytheon Patriot Advanced Capability-2 (PAC-2) air-defence system.

A company spokesman told IHS Jane's on 8 July that MHI has not "issued any announcements to that effect, nor has the company made any decision related to the export of missile parts". The MHI spokesman did not confirm or deny that the export was under consideration. A spokesman from the Ministry of Defense in Tokyo was unavailable to comment.

Earlier the Nikkei newspaper had reported that the Japanese government was set to approve MHI's plans to export the sensor to the United States, where it will be integrated onto the PAC-2 system due to be exported to Qatar.
