Renewed helicopters for India

India has decided to put out an RFP for light helicopters after all the back-and-forth. See an article here. As previously discussed the planned acquisition was canceled, then planned again, and now it will be for a reduced number than the last attempt. Now rather then going with a 100% foreign buy the contract will be split between a non-Indian company and HAL. One positive of this is that they plan to limit the tech transfer, requirements that recently have been seen as onerous, to only those for the support of the aircraft.

Congress protests DDG-100 cancellation

Recently the US Navy announced that it was not going to continue the DDG-100 program. Two ships are under construction by Northrop-Grumman and General Dynamics. Not unexpectedly the Senators from the affected states, mainly Massachusetts and Maine, have protested. See an article here. The major recent the Navy cites is the continued cost growth of the program. The first two were projected at under $4 B each, but now the estimates are over $5.5 B. Other than the shipbuilders, Raytheon is the most affected company as it was building the combat system of sensors for the ship. The Navy intends to continue production of the DDG-51 class instead.

Scottish firm expands in the US

The Scottish company, WFS, has won a development deal from GD. See an article here. WFS works on advanced radio waves propagation techniques. Like many Europeon companies they have looked to the US and the expanded defense budgets of the last 7 years to gain work. It also again demonstrates that in the long run it is cheaper and more efficient for US companies to look overseas for existing capabilities, rather than develop them internally.

Future Combat Systems (FCS) technology acceleration good to Arizona

This article describes the economic effect of the Army decision to begin pushing components of the multi-system Future Combat System (FCS) out-the-door faster. Due to this decision several hundred million dollars are flowing to Arizona companies earlier then originally planned by the Army. The two systems with the most effect are the non-line of sight missile system that uses a box launcher with integrated fire control and several unmanned systems. The Army benefits two ways by this type of decision; first, they get needed technology upgrades into the field earlier; and secondly they get testing under real world conditions.

This does not mean that the contract could not be renegotiated, but it may be India turns to another provider.

LMT reports earnings

July 22, 2008 by · Comment
Filed under: Earnings, Lockheed Martin 

Lockheed Martin continued the string of defense contractors reporting good earnings as the rest of the economy struggles. See a press release here. Lockheed had a 13% increase in profit over the last year with a solid increase in earnings. The company also is starting to sound cautious about the expected downturn if the Democrats win the White House in November. Even if the defense budget is cut dramatically it will take a few years for the effects to be felt within the suppliers.
