Defense Department to Rely on Qwest for High Speed Internet

Like all large organizations the U.S. Department of Defense is a heavy user of the internet. It also faces the choice that it either may develop its own network or rely on buying one from a commercial provider. For the last several years the Department has relied on Qwest (Q) to provide data transport services across the globe.

The contract was just renewed at a total value of around $100 million so that Qwest will continue to provide these services for several more years in support of Defense activities and the services. As part of the contract users will pay a variable rate based on the speed of the connection they choose allowing higher priority data and information to be sent at a much faster rate then a normal request.

In the past the Defense Department maintained their own phone system in parallel to the commercial network and that still exists with limited usage. It might have been expected that a similar system would have been established for its internet requirements but in this case, like so many others, the case for using an existing commercial provider is cheaper and more efficient.

The U.S. defense establishment relies on other commercial communication assets and has recently made a decision to set up an omnibus contract for commercial satellite communications with the rest of the government. This large contract which awards separate contracts to different companies allows the DoD and other government agencies fairly cheap, reliable access to the commercial satellite system. At the current time with the fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq the U.S. has relied heavily on satellite communications and this new contract allows better pricing and availability.

Bribes, Corruption Suspected in Greek Submarine Order

Procurement fraud and outright crimes have afflicted government spending and contracting since the dawn of history. There have been many recent cases of bribery used to affect contract awards or purchasing decisions. This has included elected officials, civil servants as well as company representatives. There are cases large and small from accusations against BAE Systems (BAE:LSE) in a multi-billion deal with Saudi Arabia to a U.S. Army Major who took $200,000 in bribes from foreign companies to give them work in Iraq, Kuwait and Afghanistan.

Foreign military sales has always been one area that in the past has seen rampant bribery and corruption. In the last few decades governments have been cracking down on such practices especially the United States. They have made it illegal to use such methods to help win contracts overseas even if those practices were considered part of the cost of doing business. In 2008 for example Siemens (SI) settled with the U.S. government on charges they used such methods to win contracts.

Now there are allegations that Greek defense and elected officials were bribed to influence the award of a contract for four submarines to a German company. The contract was one of the largest in Greek history and would see one boat built in Germany and the other three in Greek yards.

The Greek government and the manufacturer, ThyssenKrupp, ended up having long running dispute about the quality of the submarine leading to the builder to threaten to cancel the deal outright. Greece then came up with the idea of taking delivery of only the first one and perhaps selling it directly themselves to recover some of the costs.

Greece’s government is suffering from financial and debt issues and the idea that the contract was inflated in cost due to corruption has only added fuel to the fire of disputes between the government and political rivals.

Corruption distorts contracts so that the buyer may not get the best value for what could be limited funds. It also affects the contracting market as it may not allow a company with better products the ability to sell those and they cannot or will not pay the necessary bribes to get the work. As more countries follow the U.S. lead in investigating and ending this type of fraud the overall defense market will benefit. Unfortunately stories like this remain much too common.

Multipurpose HELLFIRE II ‘Romeo’ Strikes Target, Completes Proof-of-Principle Flight Tests — Press Release

Multipurpose HELLFIRE II ‘Romeo’ Strikes Target, Completes Proof-of-Principle Flight Tests

ORLANDO, Fla., March 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — The U.S. Army’s Joint Attack Munition Systems (JAMS) Project Office and Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) successfully fired a multipurpose AGM114R HELLFIRE II “Romeo” missile with a live warhead and penetrated a brick-over-block target in its sixth proof-of-principle (POP) test.

The flight test, at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla., demonstrated the Romeo’s enhanced software capability and superior performance in a military-operations-in-urban-terrain scenario. The new Romeo’s multipurpose warhead design enables the missile, with a designator spot laser, to seek out and defeat hard, soft and enclosed targets with outstanding success. The initial fielding of the HELLFIRE II Romeo is scheduled for late 2012.

“The AGM-114R baseline design is now defined and allows us to go into system qualification,” said U.S. Army Lt. Col. Mike Brown, HELLFIRE Systems product manager at JAMS. “The R model remains on cost and on schedule, and meets all performance objectives.”

Engineers ground-launched the single HELLFIRE II Romeo missile in a lock-on-after-launch mode, simulating the missile being fired from a rotary-wing platform. The short-range (2.5 kilometer) high-speed impact shot penetrated the brick-over-block target and successfully detonated with the specified fuze delay.

This was the final POP test for this next-generation precision missile. The Romeo’s advanced fuze technology and new warhead design performed flawlessly in test flights, proving reduced risk through system performance. Additionally, Lockheed Martin’s Joint-Air-to-Ground Missile (JAGM) incorporates the same warhead technology and fuze design that is present in the HELLFIRE II Romeo.

“We redesigned the warhead to combine the capabilities of our four previous HELLFIRE II variants into one single multipurpose missile,” said Ken Musculus, director of Air-to-Ground Missile Systems at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. “Our POP tests conclusively proved that the HELLFIRE II Romeo meets all of its requirements, and will provide a valuable capability to the warfighter.”

New design features on the HELLFIRE II Romeo include a three-axis inertial measurement unit, which enables properly equipped launch platforms to engage targets to the side and behind them without having to maneuver the aircraft into position. The missile can be launched from high or low altitudes due to its enhanced guidance system and improved navigation capabilities, optimizing the missile’s impact angle for enhanced lethality.

The HELLFIRE II Romeo integrates with all HELLFIRE II-compatible platforms, and can be launched autonomously or with remote designation. Rotary-wing platforms include the Apache, Kiowa Warrior, Cobra and Seahawk, as well as the Tiger Armed Reconnaissance Helicopter for Australia and the Tiger Helicoptere d’Appui Destruction for France. The HELLFIRE has also been demonstrated on ground-based tripods, ground vehicles and boats.

With multi-mission and multi-target capability, HELLFIRE is the primary air-to-ground missile system for the U.S. Armed Forces and many allied nations. Lockheed Martin performs all work on behalf of the HELLFIRE Systems Limited Liability Company at its manufacturing facilities in Troy, Ala., and Ocala, Fla.

Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security company that employs about 132,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services. The Corporation’s 2010 sales from continuing operations were $45.8 billion.
