Jan 30 (Reuters) – China said it would impose sanctions on companies involved in a planned $6.4 billon arms package for Taiwan that the Obama administration sent the U.S. Congress on Friday.

Here are the main arms included in the package, and the companies that make them. Other weapons systems are to be opened to bid.

* Sikorsky Aircraft Corp, a unit of United Technologies Corp (UTX.N), would supply 60 UH-60M Black Hawk utility helicopters. The estimated cost is $3.1 billion. United Technologies sells Otis elevators and Carrier brand heating and air-conditioning in China.

* Lockheed Martin Corp (LMT.N) would build 114 Patriot Advanced Capability-3 anti-missile missiles for Taiwan. Raytheon Co (RTN.N) would integrate the systems. The deal’s estimated value is $2.8 billion. Neither of these companies is believed to do major business with China.

* Boeing Co (BA.N)’s McDonnell Douglas unit builds Harpoon Block II Telemetry missiles. A proposed sale of 12 of them to Taiwan would be worth about $37 million. Boeing sells commercial aircraft to Chinese airlines.
