U.S. Army Moves Out on Future Combat Systems (FCS) Replacement

One of the major budget decisions of the Obama Administration was to end the U.S. Army’s Future Combat Systems (FCS) program. This overarching system-of-systems was to provide new vehicles, weapons, unmanned vehicles and data links to provide a rapid, hard hitting replacement for the heavy armored force built around the M1 tank and the M2 Bradley fighting vehicles. The FCS had seen major growth in cost and schedule and it’s requirements pre-dated operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. The administration decided to end the program. Boeing (BA) and SAIC (SAIC) were the prime contractors on it.

To replace FCS the Army stood up a Brigade Modernization Program that would take parts of the old program and also begin development of new requirements and vehicles. With the passage of the 2010 defense budget last week the Army took the first step by awarding Boeing a contract for initialization of Increment 1 of the new program. This contract is to provide the soldier on the ground enhanced surveillance, reconnaissance and intelligence capabilities. Increment 1 will include some unmanned ground and air vehicles as well as sensors and a network to integrate them.

Further increments of the program will see further investment in new vehicles and weapons designed to the new requirements.

Second Lockheed Martin F-35B Arrives at Navy Test Site — Press Release

Second Lockheed Martin F-35B Arrives at Navy Test Site

NAVAL AIR STATION PATUXENT RIVER, Md., Dec. 29 /PRNewswire/ — The second Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT) F-35B Lightning II short takeoff/vertical landing (STOVL) stealth fighter arrived today at Naval Air Station Patuxent River, Md.

U.S. Marine Corps Maj. Joseph T. “O.D.” Bachmann piloted the aircraft nonstop from Lockheed Martin’s Fort Worth, Texas, plant to Patuxent River, successfully completing aerial refueling en route. Bachmann departed at 11:07 a.m. EST and arrived in Patuxent River at 2:26 p.m. EST.

“Pax River is ready to begin the extensive four-year flight test campaign to help field the future of Marine Corps and Navy Aviation,” said Dan Crowley, Lockheed Martin executive vice president and F-35 program general manager. “Over the next year, an integrated government/industry test team will ramp up the flight test at Pax River for the F-35B STOVL variant and F-35C carrier variant, and at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif., for the F-35A conventional takeoff and landing variant.”

Like the first F-35B that arrived at Patuxent River in November, this aircraft also is supported by the F-35 Autonomic Logistics Information System (ALIS) and monitored by the F-35 Autonomics Logistics Global Sustainment (ALGS) Operations Center in Fort Worth. F-35 sustainment is based upon the principles of Performance-Based Logistics (PBL), involving extensive partnering agreements between government and industry. The F-35 team has developed an advanced sustainment system capability with designed-in sustainability that will reduce overall life-cycle costs and ensure mission readiness.

The F-35 Lightning II is a 5th generation fighter, combining advanced stealth with fighter speed and agility, fully fused sensor information, network-enabled operations, advanced sustainment, and lower operational and support costs. Lockheed Martin is developing the F-35 with its principal industrial partners, Northrop Grumman and BAE Systems. Two separate, interchangeable F-35 engines are under development: the Pratt & Whitney F135 and the GE Rolls-Royce Fighter Engine Team F136.

Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security company that employs about 140,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services. The corporation reported 2008 sales of $42.7 billion.

Kongsberg To Build More CROWS

The U.S. Department of Defense added to a contract previously won by Kongsberg of Norway for Crew Remote Operated Weapon Stations (CROWS). The value of this addition is over $800 million. The add to the existing contract will purchase a further 3,849 CROWS bringing the total to over 10,000.

The contract will be done over five years at Kongsberg Pennsylvania facility. CROWS allows weapons to be operated by a gunner sitting in the vehicle rather then up in the turret. This provides maximum protection to them in combat. CROWS are installed on HUMVEES as well as MRAP vehicles and are used in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Northrop Grumman Delivers New Mexico Submarine Ahead of Schedule in
Record Time

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – Dec. 29, 2009 – Northrop Grumman
Corporation (NYSE:NOC) delivered the sixth submarine of the Virginia
class, New Mexico (SSN 779), to the U.S. Navy today, four months ahead
of schedule. New Mexico's 70-month construction period represents the
shortest overall construction time of any Virginia-class submarine.

"New Mexico's delivery is a reflection of the commitment,
dedication and hard work of the shipbuilders at Newport News, our
Electric Boat partners and the Navy," said Becky Stewart, vice
president for Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding's submarine program. "We
delivered her in record time, using one million fewer man-hours than
her predecessor USS North Carolina (SSN 777). Our shipbuilders are
focused on meeting safety, quality, cost and schedule commitments. The
progress we've made in the Virginia-class submarine program
demonstrates their personal ownership in building the finest submarines
in the world."

The keel for New Mexico was authenticated April 12, 2008, and
the ship was christened on Dec. 13, 2008. New Mexico, named for "The
Land of Enchantment," is the most modern and sophisticated attack
submarine in the world, providing undersea supremacy well into the 21st
century.

Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding is teamed with General Dynamics
Electric Boat to build the first 18 ships of the Virginia class.
Current plans call for 30 Virginia-class submarines in the fleet. Using
millions of parts from over 4,000 suppliers in 47 states and the
District of Columbia, Virginia-class submarines incorporate dozens of
new technologies and innovations and are the first major combatants
designed with the post-Cold War security environment in mind.

Northrop Grumman Corporation is a leading global security
company whose 120,000 employees provide innovative systems, products,
and solutions in aerospace, electronics, information systems,
shipbuilding and technical services to government and commercial
customers worldwide.

Lockheed Martin-Built Trident II D5 Missile Achieves 130th Consecutive Successful Test Flight — Press Release

Lockheed Martin-Built Trident II D5 Missile Achieves 130th Consecutive Successful Test Flight

D5 Fleet Ballistic Missile Launched in Navy Test in the Atlantic Continues 20-year Record of Reliability

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Dec. 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — The U.S. Navy conducted a successful test flight Dec. 19 of a Trident II D5 Fleet Ballistic Missile (FBM) built by Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT) . The Navy launched the unarmed missile from the submerged submarine USS ALASKA (SSBN 732) in the Atlantic Ocean.

This test marked the 130th consecutive successful test flight of the Trident II D5 missile since 1989 – continuing a 20-year record of reliability that is unmatched by any other large ballistic missile or space launch vehicle.

“The professionalism of the entire Navy and industry team for the Trident Strategic Weapon System has made possible the 100-percent mission success of the D5 missile in 130 test flights over 20 years,” said Melanie A. Sloane, vice president of Fleet Ballistic Missile programs, Lockheed Martin Space Systems Company, the Navy’s Trident missile prime contractor.

The Navy launched the missile as part of a Demonstration and Shakedown Operation (DASO) to certify USS ALASKA for deployment, following a shipyard overhaul period. For the test, a missile was converted into a test configuration using a test missile kit produced by Lockheed Martin that contains range safety devices and flight telemetry instrumentation.

First deployed in 1990, the D5 missile is currently aboard OHIO-class submarines and British VANGUARD-class submarines. The three-stage, solid-propellant, inertial-guided ballistic missile can travel a nominal range of 4,000 nautical miles and carries multiple independently targeted reentry vehicles.

Lockheed Martin Space Systems Company, Sunnyvale, Calif., is the Trident missile prime contractor and program manager for the U.S. Navy Strategic Systems Programs. Lockheed Martin Space Systems employees, principally in California, Georgia, Florida, Washington, Utah and Virginia, support the design, development, production, test, and operation and sustainment of the Trident Strategic Weapon System. Lockheed Martin Space Systems has been the Navy’s prime strategic missile contractor since the inception of the program more than 50 years ago.

The test also involved the Lockheed Martin-integrated navigation subsystem that provides navigation data required to support today’s stringent Trident Weapon System performance requirements. Lockheed Martin Maritime Systems & Sensors Undersea Systems at Mitchel Field, N.Y., has been the prime contractor for the navigation subsystem aboard fleet ballistic missile submarines since 1955.

Altogether, nearly 3,000 employees throughout the Lockheed Martin Corporation support the Navy’s Fleet Ballistic Missile program.

Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security company that employs about 140,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services. The corporation reported 2008 sales of $42.7 billion.

DDG-51 Construction To Continue By Northrop Grumman

Due to the restructuring of the plans for the new U.S. Navy destroyer program the U.S. Department of Defense decided to continue building the DDG-51 Arliegh Burke Class ships. Originally this ship was to end its production as more DDG-1000 were ordered and delivered. The Obama Administration and Secretary of Defense Gates decided to cut back on the plans as the program was running late and over budget. To make up for these changes it was decided to keep building DDG-51 class ships.

These ships are made by either Northrop Grumman or General Dynamics at their respective yards. Northrop Grumman received recently a contract to provide long lead materials for the next ship they will build, DDG-113. The contract has a value of over $100 million. The Arliegh Burke’s have been in service now for almost two decades and the DDG-1000 would have been larger, more stealthy and with newer systems. The DDG-51 are certainly capable and have been upgraded as time has passed.

U.S. Air Force Continues To Buy Paveway Guidance Systems

The Paveway is a kit that converts an iron bomb into a laser guided one. They are not powered but use aerodynamic controls and a sensor kit to guide the bomb to where a laser is pointing. This laser may be ground or air based. With the development of the Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) GPS guided system laser bombs have been used less but Paveways are still being produced and available for service in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Raytheon was awarded a contract last week to build another 750 kits to convert bombs with the Paveway kit. This is the full amount of the contract so it may be this will see the winding down of production. JDAM have the advantage of not requiring a designator as the coordinates are loaded into the weapon and by using GPS satellites it guides itself to them.

Boeing, Air Austral Announce Order for Two Next-Generation 737-800s — Press Release

Boeing, Air Austral Announce Order for Two Next-Generation 737-800s

SEATTLE, Dec. 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Boeing (NYSE:BA) and Air Austral announced an order for two Next-Generation 737-800s. The order is valued at $152 million at list prices.

The two 737-800s will be the airline’s first of this model, replacing one 737-300 and one 737-500 in the airline’s fleet.

“The Boeing 737-800 is the natural choice for the modernization of our medium haul fleet,” said Gerard Etheve, president of the board of directors and chief executive officer of Air Austral. “Our pilots and technicians with experience on our 737 Classics will be able to transition smoothly to these new additions to our fleet.”

Air Austral, headquartered in St. Denis, Reunion, a French Department island located east of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean, operates regional routes to Mauritius, Madagascar, South Africa, Mayotte, Seychelles and Comoros. The carrier also operates long haul routes to Paris, Lyon, Marseille and Toulouse in mainland France and to Australia and New Caledonia with a fleet of 777-300ER (Extended Range) and 777-200ER exclusively.

“The 737-800 provides the right capacity and economy for Air Austral’s routes,” said Marlin Dailey, vice president of Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “We look forward to continuing our 20-year strong relationship with Air Austral that began with the 737 Classic.”

The Next-Generation 737 is the newest and most technologically advanced airplane in its class. The 737-800 flies higher, faster and farther, and seats more passengers than previous models. In addition, its flight deck features the latest liquid-crystal flat-panel displays and is designed to accommodate new communications and flight-management capabilities.
