9 billion euro contract for 112 Eurofighter Typhoons signed – Press Release

9 billion euro contract for 112 Eurofighter Typhoons signed

eurofighter-newNETMA (NATO Eurofighter and Tornado Management Agency), Eurofighter Jagdflugzeug GmbH and EUROJET Turbo GmbH signed today the production contract for a further 112 aircraft, including 241 engines, for the four partner Nations: Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom.

The Tranche 3.9 billion contract confirms Eurofighter Typhoon as the best selling defence aircraft on the market with 559 units under production contract, including 15 for Austria and 72 for Saudi Arabia.

Eurofighter Jagdflugzeug GmbH CEO Enzo Casolini commented: “This is a major achievement in the Eurofighter programme and serves to reaffirm the importance and the independence of the defence sector of the European industry. The agreement, achieved in conjunction with NETMA and the four Nations involved in the programme, will provide the Air Forces with the best asset available to address their requirements for both air-to-air and air-to-ground roles”.
EUROJET Managing Director Hartmut J. Tenter commented: “This is an outstanding success for the EUROJET programme and a clear signal to the international community endorsing the quality of the product. The EJ200 stands for leading-edge technology, including advanced integrated Health Monitoring to deliver class-leading reliability, maintainability and Through Life Cost—the benchmark of excellence”.

NETMA’s General Manager, Lt.Gen. Antonino Altorio remarked that “the capabilities of Tranche 3 aircraft consolidate the already excellent performances of Tranche 1 and 2 aircraft and will enable the Air Forces to carry out primary air defence in NATO missions as well as maintaining air superiority in theatres of operations and, if necessary, providing support in the air-to-ground role. This contract sets the baseline for consequent contracts for logistic support which is fundamental to keeping fleets available while reducing, significantly, the cost of in-service support”.

Today the Eurofighter programme not only represents the largest European industrial programme, supporting 100,000 jobs in 400 companies across Europe, but it is also the most advanced example of technology within the European industry base. It sets the standard in terms of best value for a new generation defence aircraft programme.

With the production of Eurofighter Typhoon, now being confirmed until well into the next decade, the future of the programme is assured and will maintain and develop the current technological capability in Europe, enhancing future export opportunities and giving the four partner Nations a significant return on their investments. Having already secured two export contracts with Austria in 2003 and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in 2007, Eurofighter Typhoon will continue to follow up all export opportunities.

NETMA

Eurofighter and Eurojet Turbo consortia and their partner Companies are actively pursuing campaigns in Switzerland, India, Japan, Romania, Greece, Turkey and exploring possible opportunities in South Korea, Bulgaria, Croatia and other Nations.

Background information:

Eurofighter Typhoon is the world’s most advanced new generation real multi-role/swing-role combat aircraft available on the market and has been ordered by six nations (Germany, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom, Austria and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia). With 559 aircraft under
production contract, it is Europe’s largest military collaborative programme and delivers leadingedge technology, strengthening Europe’s aerospace industry in the global competitive market.
More than 100,000 jobs in 400 companies are secured by the programme. Eurofighter Jagdflugzeug GmbH manages the programme on behalf of the Eurofighter Partner Companies: Alenia Finmeccanica, BAE Systems, EADS CASA and EADS Deutschland, Europe’s foremost aerospace companies with a total turnover of approx. 88 billion Euros (2008).

The EUROJET consortium is responsible for the management of development, support and export of the new generation EJ200 engine system, installed in the Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft. EUROJET’s shareholders comprise Avio (Italy), ITP (Spain), MTU Aero Engines (Germany) and Rolls-Royce (UK). The EJ200 engine, with its unprecedented performance record combined with multi-role capability and highest availability at low life-cycle costs, is perfectly set to meet the air forces’ demands of today and the future.

NETMA was formed on 1 January 1996 by the merger of two previously separate NATO agencies which had been established to manage Tornado and Eurofighter (EF2000) programmes.

The Agency is responsible to the partner Nations (Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom) for all the aspects of the programme covering development, procurement and inservice support of Eurofighter and Tornado aircraft weapon systems. NETMA provides partner Nations with an efficient, effective and coherent management service for these two major international programmes.

Making Money Off Tracking The Stimulus

Filed under: BNET 

There is an old argument about whether the private sector is more efficient then the government. It is true that only the government can carry out certain tasks in society but in many cases the evil profit motive may make an individual or company do something quicker and better.

Car Sale Stimulus Too Complicated And Too Successful

As part of a plan to both stimulate the economy and auto sales the U.S. Government came up with “Cash for Clunkers”. This program actually called Car Allowance Rebate System (CARS) was to pay a rebate of either $3,500 or $4,500 to people buying a new car that exceeded the mileage of an older […]

BAE Reports Loss For Most Recent Quarter

BAE Systems reported its most recent quarterly results and had a loss of just over $135 million. The same quarter last year saw profits of over $800 million. The English company was hit badly by a downturn in the U.S. market for Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles as the contracts for those vehicles needed in Iraq ended. Oshkosh was able to win the new MRAP-ATV contract that will supply lighter, more maneuverable vehicle to be used in Afghanistan.

BAE like all of the other major defense contractors is looking askance at the future Obama budgets. It has a role to play in the F-22 and Future Combat Systems (FCS) programs ended in the 2010 budget. This is revenue that may not be made up with new contracts. The company does support the F-35 JSF as well which will see an acceleration if plans are carried out.

There may also be a future blow back against the non-U.S. companies politically if the defense budget does decline severely in the next few years. The limited work might be directed to those remaining big contractors that are home based. BAE has made efforts to expand into the market through acquisition of U.S. companies and capabiliites so that might cushion any blows.

Earnings have been mixed this quarter and the results in nine to twelve months will tell the real story of how the defense market is falling out.

Orbital Earnings Take A Hit

Due to some restructuring of its work due to the Obama Administration’s efforts to reorient defense spending Orbital Sciences Corporation reported a downturn in revenue and operating income in its most recent quarterly results. The company saw a missile defense contract ended and some delays in satellite work leading it to reduce its estimates for the full year.

Of the major defense companies reporting so far results have been mixed. Some have seen better quarters then others. The effects of the major changes planned by Obama and Secretary of Defense Gates may take some months to have effect. The large programs they have ended will still be paying termination costs to the companies as they figure out what fees are needed and what work will be paid for. There are also chances that new contracts will be awarded in the next year or so.

Several programs will be continued in another form it may take two or three years for the next iteration to start. The Army’s Future Combat System (FCS) contract with Boeing and SAIC ended but the technology and work has been inserted into a new program. The contracts for the new program have not been fully awarded, so Boeing and SAIC may end of with revenue from that effort. In the end despite the cancellation the companies may not end up losing much revenue.
