BAE grows in the US

This article discusses the effect BAE has had on Phoenix, AZ. It also illustrates how the non-US company has grown through the acquisitions of US companies and has gained more and more US defene business. In Phoenix alone the number of BAE employees has tripled in the last five years or so, and the company has been buying facilities and companies. The article also shows how some in Congress feel a British company is better than a joint German and French, making it easier for BAE to continue to gain work in the US.

KC-45 protest summary report released

The GAO released a summary of why they upheld the protest by Boeing over the KC-45 award. See an article here. The chief reason was due to the Air Force’s failure to properly apply the criteria for source selection. Of the several reasons listed two ones that stand out is that they gave EADS credit for exceeding a requirement when they should not have, and rather than just noting the risk associated with the Boeing bid the Air Force calculated a dollar figure to overcome that risk. This alone drove up the cost proposal of the Boeing K-767 aircraft. The Air Force technically still does not have to withdraw the award to Northrop Grumman and EADS, but they would be best off reopening the competition.

DARPA invests in fuel cell technology

The DARPA and US Army awarded a follow-on contract to UltraCell for continued work on hydrogen fuel cell systems to power military hardware. See an article here. The UltraCell process utilizes methanol and converts it into hydrogen to provide electricity. The current system is used to provide power for laptops, but UltraCell is working on scaling it for use with larger fixed installations. The advantage this offers is that for comparable power the fuel cell is smaller and lighter then existing batteries. There is also no requirement for a separate electrical system to charge the batteries as is currently done.

Scotland’s government snipes over CV delays

Worried about the effect on their workforce, Scottish MPs criticized the English government for not moving fast enough to award the new CV construction contract. For more see the BBC here. The two carriers will be built primarily in Scottish shipyards and will cost over 4 billion Pounds. Scotland is worried that with a possible change in the future constitutional relationship between the two countries may make the British government turn to English yards for the work. The Scottish defence industry is heavily dependent on English orders, not having had much luck securing foreign work. More to come on this, I am sure.

FN reiterates desire for M4 contract

This article describes the FN plant in South Carolina. FN makes M16, M240 and other weapons for the US military there. FN has been expanding the plant steadily over the last few years and is waiting for the biggest prize in the US small arms business – next years M4 competition. Currently Colt makes all of the M4 carbines and has since the Nineties. There have been many complaints about its performance and even if FN won the contract many of the design issues could not be fixed without going to a whole new weapon. The contest next year will be interesting.

Michigan economic development wars

As we have previously mentioned here and here Michigan has set up various entities to promote the state’s companies for defense contracts. According to this article though the head of the state organization is upset with one of the regional ones for not doing enough. The state hired a retired USMC general to run their organization and now he is raising a dispute over the efforts of one setup for the Western part of the state to the point where he wants to establish his own organization to do the work of the existing one. I guess when you are going out for Federal dollars no effort is wasted.

Marines buy MRAPs

June 20, 2008 by · Comment
Filed under: Contract Awards, production program, U.S. Navy 

According to this article the US Navy awarded five separate contracts to Navistar International. These contracts will be used to buy MRAP vehicles for the USMC. The MRAP market has increased dramatically in the last three years with BAE, Navistar and Force Protection being the main suppliers. The US military invested heavily in these vehicles to defeat the threat from IED in Iraq which had become the prime threat to their troops. Unfortunately the future combat forces of the Army and USMC will rely on other vehicles, perhaps the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) or the humble HUMVEE which will leave the US with a large inventory of MRAP vehicles not suited to other tactical missions.

Bearingpoint was awarded a contract by the US Navy to provide management tools for the Recruiting Command. See a press release here. The contract is worth over $12 M and is a continuation of Bearingpoint’s work over the last few years. As with many other types of corporations the military spends a great deal of money on custom software and database applications. This is actually a large business and is often subsumed within the SETA support contracts.

Market bets on new tanker competition

EADS shares are down in Europe, and I am sure Northrop Grumman’s will also drop today. See this article. The market is assuming that the Air Force will follow the GAO’s recommendation and reopen the competition.
