Making Weapons Out of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles – July 2011

In this podcast, we focus on making weapons out of unmanned aerial vehicles, the Pentagon’s attempt to play catch-up with bomb makers, and the government’s green investment strategy.

General Dynamics Wins DHS IT Contract

After a lengthy protest and a new contest General Dynamics (GD) was able to win an IT support contract with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The company will support the building of the agency’s new headquarters and the move and integration of its employees into the facility.

Total value of the award could be up to $876 million as it also covers some time of dedicated support to the DHS. The original contract, though, won by Northrop Grumman (NOC) was much larger, lasting ten years and potentially worth over $2 billion.

After the award to Northrop late last year several of the losing bidders protested. The Government Accountability Office (GAO) upheld the protests and decided that a new contract should be awarded. This led to a new source selection process this spring with Northrop being the winner.

The new contract is much smaller as it was decided to de-scope the work and also eliminate many of the years of support after completion of the move. This means that in a few years there will be another contest to do that work and offers hope to Northrop that they can win that to counter the loss of the original contract.

The Federal Government stills has a hard time doing major IT work in-house and relies on large contracts such as this to carry out that work. There has been much discussion of the best way to move this work within the civil service but it has often foundered on how to integrate IT pay scales into the more rigid GS pay system. IT as illustrated does remain a significant contract cost for all parts of the Federal government as no matter what work they do from buying weapons to processing taxes they need IT support.

This area will remain a major market for the near future.

Congress Continues to Nibble Around the Edges of Defense Spending

June 29, 2011 by · Comment
Filed under: Editorial 

The FY12 budget for the U.S. Defense Department continues its long process through Congress. The Senate Armed Services Committee (SASC) released its mark up this week. It is one of the four committees between the two parts of the legislature with this responsibility. As the House committees have already done they made some small cuts in the budget.

The Committee’s mark up removed less then one percent of the $671 billion requested by the Obama administration or $6.4 billion. Most of this was achieved by holding Operations & Maintenance (O&M) spending at FY10 levels and removing a billion from the Department’s construction budget.

The House had made smaller cuts of less the half a billion in their mark ups but had focused on reducing the funds for use in Afghanistan and Iraq. These saw a major cut overall with a planned amount of less the $120 billion compared to the $130 billion in the last proper budget passed in FY10.

The SASC bill does contain some controversial provisions including those dealing with the next F-35 production buy from Lockheed Martin (LMT). The committee is dictating the type of contract required and the cost sharing if their are any increases over the target price for the aircraft. If that provision stands after the conference with the House it would mean Lockheed would be liable for any overruns past the target while right now the government is responsible for up to the first twenty percent.

The Senate does, unlike the House, end funding for the JSF’s second engine program. The Obama administration had requested terminating this and the SASC agreed. Rolls-Royce (RR) and GE (GE) continue to develop this out of their own funds for now hoping that Congress will continue funding it. The House did but now the Senate did not so another item to be worked out in the conference committee.

While these cuts seem rather small they do indicate a sea change in the process. Up to this year the Defense Department’s budget grew. Much of this was due to the fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. Now it is being reduced. Programs are being prioritized and some are even eliminated. The next few years will see continuations of these trends as the U.S. tries to get a handle on its spending. Bigger reductions are going to come and they may be closer to ten percent or more and not 1 percent.

Oshkosh Defense Highlights Aftermarket Offerings at 2011 DLA Industry Conference — Press Release

Oshkosh Defense Highlights Aftermarket Offerings at 2011 DLA Industry Conference

OSHKOSH, Wis. (June 27, 2011) — Oshkosh Defense, a division of Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK), will present its integrated technology, training and service aftermarket offerings at the 2011 Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Conference and Exhibition taking place in Columbus, Ohio, June 27-30.

Aftermarket offerings from Oshkosh Defense cover the full spectrum of vehicle sustainment to include product training, technical support, field service operations, technical publications, parts and parts provisioning, remanufacturing and recapitalization services, and reliability and availability engineering.

“Because our vehicles and technologies are in use in some of the harshest conditions imaginable, we need to make sure they stay in top operating condition to best serve our men and women in uniform,” said Jeff Koga, Oshkosh Defense senior director of Integrated Product Support. “Our aftermarket services encompass full life-cycle support, both in the U.S. and in theater. Even as diagrams are scratched out on paper, plans for maintaining and offering training on those products are drawn up as well. Because of our expertise, we’ve even been contracted to support non-Oshkosh vehicles as well.”

Oshkosh Defense has implemented its full range of aftermarket solutions – from parts support to vehicle remanufacturing – globally. The company has recently reached significant milestones in vehicle-support activities:

More than 10,000 heavy and medium-payload vehicles have been restored to zero-hours, zero-miles condition for the U.S. Army, National Guard and Marine Corps. Through recapitalization, heavily used vehicles are stripped to their frame rails and rebuilt to like-new condition, equipping troops with the latest vehicle safety, survivability and mobility technologies at a reduced cost.

More than 2,000 U.S. Army vehicles have been refurbished under the Theater-Provided Equipment Refurbishment (TPER) program. This program eliminates the cost of shipping vehicles to the U.S. for repairs and returns the trucks to soldiers stationed in-theater more quickly.

More than 300 Oshkosh field service representatives (FSR) are currently stationed in-theater to keep vehicles on the move where they are needed most.

More than 10,000 warfighters have been trained on the M-ATV since Oshkosh received the M-ATV contract in June 2009.

The Oshkosh Defense electronic data interchange (EDI) has been processing orders since 2002 to improve supply support with reduced lead times. Oshkosh Defense has been in a strategic supplier alliance with DLA since 2003.

Oshkosh Defense management will be on hand at the DLA Conference and Exhibition to discuss these offerings and more at booth #213. The event is being held at the Greater Columbus Convention Center.

Lockheed Martin Facility Planned to be Closed Wins Navy Work

As companies prepare for what is forecast to be cuts and reductions in the U.S. defense spending they have begun to look at eliminating overhead. They are also under pressure from the Defense Department to lower their costs and be more efficient. This has led to plans for layoffs and the elimination and consolidation of facilities.

Both Lockheed Martin (LMT) and General Dynamics (GD) recently announced major restructuring of their work force which includes the loss of several hundred jobs each. They have also begun the process of closing offices as work their ends or moving it to other locations. One place that will see its local Lockheed facility closed is Eagan, MN.

Even though the company was just awarded a contract by the Navy to manufacture and install upgraded combat systems for existing submarine with the potential to be worth over $750 million with some of the work being done in Eagan the plan is still to realign that office. The contract despite its value is scheduled to be complete by the middle of next year.

While the Eagan office is being closed many of the jobs that are there will be kept but at different Lockheed facilities. The plant had at one time almost 3,000 employees but is now below 1,000. At least 250 of those positions will be eliminated with the balance being moved elsewhere.

The U.S. defense spending has often gone through boom-and-bust periods which has led to many other cities facing situations like Eagan where a large employer can slowly disappear as requirements change or systems reach the end of their production life. It can be quite harrowing for a community to see a major jobs provider go and unless the company is able to attract further work. Eagan, MN unfortunately is facing that situation as the U.S. looks at reducing total defense spending.

U.S. Africa Command Deploys AtHoc IWSAlerts to Protect Military Personnel throughout Europe and Africa

AtHoc Continues International Expansion of Network-Centric Emergency Mass Notification

SAN MATEO, Calif. (June 27, 2011) – AtHoc, Inc., the pioneer and leader in network-centric emergency mass notification systems, today announced that U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) has deployed AtHoc IWSAlerts™ to serve as the network-centric alerting system for force protection of U.S. military personnel in Africa and U.S. Africa Command staff stationed in Europe. AtHoc IWSAlerts is deployed on-site at AFRICOM headquarters in Stuttgart, Germany, integrating and unifying existing disparate mass notification capabilities and enabling the rapid notification to Internet Protocol-connected devices worldwide.

AtHoc’s unified approach for mass notification systems enables AFRICOM to send emergency notifications to all networked computers, landline phones and mobile phones (telephone and text messaging), and e-mail. The AtHoc network-centric capability will provide personnel accountability via real-time response tracking reports for a command-wide view of the status and safety of all personnel during emergencies. AtHoc’s unique capability to support many geographically separated units from a single consolidated data center (including failover capability at a remote data center) is key in this combatant command responsible for a vast geographic area. The result is the most effective enterprise-wide mass notification capability with the best cost-to-benefit ratio.

AtHoc’s support for AFRICOM builds on the firm’s recent global deployment for other major U.S. military commands. Today, the vast majority of Department of Defense (DoD) organizations have standardized on AtHoc IWSAlerts to fulfill their requirements for force protection, recall, critical communication and personnel accountability.

“After a lengthy competitive contracting process, AtHoc is both humbled and pleased to partner with AFRICOM in supporting their personnel on the African continent and at assigned units stationed in Europe,” said (Ret.) Air Force Col. Andy Anderson, Vice President of Operations, Defense Sector for AtHoc. “Being selected to help enhance force protection for AFRICOM adds to our successes internationally and strengthens our partnership within the DoD, where AtHoc’s technology is already deployed at hundreds of garrisons, camps and bases, protecting more than 1.5 million military personnel worldwide. We look forward to this deployment as it furthers our commitment to providing mass alerting solutions to U.S. military installations around the world, helping the military to be better prepared to meet its force protection and personnel accountability requirements.”

AtHoc is the largest single provider of network-centric emergency mass notification solutions to the U.S. federal government, currently protecting more than 2 million personnel at more than a thousand locations worldwide. Facilities, installations, bases and commands throughout the world benefit from AtHoc’s unified alerting approach, enterprise-wide architecture, security, reliability and ease of use.

AFRICOM was established in October 2007, and in concert with other U.S. government agencies and international partners, conducts sustained security engagement through military-to-military programs, military-sponsored activities and other military operations as directed to promote a stable and secure African environment in support of U.S. foreign policy.

About AtHoc

AtHoc is the pioneer and recognized leader in providing network-centric emergency mass notification systems to military, homeland security, government and commercial organizations. AtHoc’s products are used for physical security, force protection, personnel accountability, recall and regulatory compliance. Millions of end-users worldwide, in organizations such as the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Veteran Affairs, UCLA, Microsoft, Boeing and Raytheon, rely on AtHoc’s unified notification systems for their emergency alerting and critical communication needs. AtHoc has partnered with market leaders including Microsoft, Cisco, Harris, Northrop Grumman, MIR3, Lockheed Martin and others to bring these notification solutions to the public and commercial markets.

Companies Continue Fights for U.S. Military Health Care Contracts

The United States’ Department of Defense spends a great deal of money on health care. They are responsible for not only the active duty members but also their dependents, retirees as well as National Guardsmen and Reservists. The fighting since 9/11 has seen the expansion of the size of the military. Many personnel have families. There has also been an increase in the number of wounded and those needing long term car. The sustained fighting and activity also caused more retirees. Combined these pressures have required that total spending dramatically increase. In 2010 it was almost $50 billion or roughly 8 percent of the defense budget.

This has been recognized by leadership such as departing Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and some moves have been proposed to reduce spending or slow the rate of growth. If changes are not made then more-and-more of available funding will go for personnel related matters leaving less for investment in new weapons and technology. At the same time the growth has made this an attractive area for large U.S. health insurance companies and they are currently fighting over the contracts to manage the health care program.

The basic program used to do this is called TRICARE. It is like a large HMO that requires the military participants to pay a small upfront fee and then co-pays for visits and services. Because the military is so large and geographically diverse the Department of Defense centrally manages the program and divides the U.S. into regions with a contract for each. There are also omnibus contracts for overseas and dental care. The contracts average values of $4-5 billion a year.

In 2009 the Department went ahead and awarded the next set of five year contracts for the different regions. These were bid on by familiar insurance companies such as Aetna (AET), Humana (HUM) and UnitedHealth. In the late summer the winners were announced and often the incumbent did not retain the contract. Immediately several protests were filed by the losers.

Incredibly two of these protests remain unsettled today almost two years later. That indicates the importance of these contracts to the providers. In a time when the entire health care market in the U.S. is about to see radical change TRICARE does offer some stability at least for the next several years and may provide a decent source of revenues and income for these companies to offset future changes in the civilian market.

UnitedHealthCare is pursuing protests for the South and West contracts. The South has now gone through two source selection cycles with UnitedHealth winning the first one over Humana who protested which led to a new competition. This was awarded to Humana in March and that was protested by UnitedHealth. The Government Accountability Office (GAO) upheld the award and UnitedHealth has now sued in Federal Court which is the final step in the protest process. UnitedHealth believes that Humana in order to minimize costs has reduced the proposed payments to providers to such an extent that few if any will accept TRICARE patients leading to poorer choice for military members. The GAO did not sustain that argument.

UnitedHealth and Humana have also been fighting over the West contract. Here UnitedHealth was the incumbent and Humana won the new contract. That protest has also led to a decision to have a new contest that is yet to occur.

The size of the TRICARE management contracts and their value has caused those companies involved in them to try to win and keep them. Despite pressure by the Defense Department to reduce costs they are expected to remain sizable for a variety of reasons. They offer some stability as the U.S. moves to reform the civilian market. It can be expected that these protests will continue for the next few months as the contract awards are worked through.

Reports that KC-46 Contract Already Showing Cost Growth

Bloomberg is reporting that the U.S. Air Force has been briefing Congress in preparation for the FY12 budget that the KC-46 tanker contract with Boeing (BA) is already showing growth beyond the initial award price. The first part of the program is for development and testing as well as the delivery of the first 18 aircraft.

The value awarded was $4.9 billion but the indications are that it will be at least $300 million more. The way the contract is structured Boeing will have to cover that cost increase themselves. Boeing, though, seems confident that when all is complete the contract will be executed for close to the $3.9 billion and will not cost the company.

Boeing was awarded the contract in February for the new tanker program. The Air Force plans this as the first phase of a new program that could buy several hundred new tankers to replace the KC-135 and KC-10 fleet currently supporting operations. Boeing will ultimately build over 150 of the KC-46 tanker based on their commercial 767 airliner design. Boeing has also sold 767 based tankers to Italy and Japan with Italy just taking possession of their first aircraft.

The current estimate though of about a six percent cost increase is not a good sign for a program just starting which is going to be held to strict cost standards. One of the major reasons that Boeing won was their much lower price then their competition from Europen aerospace giant EADS (EADS:P) U.S. subsidiary, EADS North America. Their proposal based on the KC-30 tanker ordered by Australia and the U.A.E. was more expensive but was a larger aircraft that could carry more fuel. Further cost growth will only bring more scrutiny and criticism from Congress.

This was the third attempt by the Air Force to award the new tanker contract since 2001. An attempt to award a sole source lease to Boeing was derailed by fraudulent activity by Air Force acquisition chief Darleen Druyun and Boeing’s CFO. In 2008 EADS teamed with Northrop Grumman (NOC) won a contest that was overturned on protest by Boeing. This latest contract is the result of the new competition held due to Boeing’s successful protest.

AIA Concerned by Defense Appropriations Cuts to National Security Space — Press Release

AIA Concerned by Defense Appropriations Cuts to National Security Space

ARLINGTON, Va., June 23, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The Aerospace Industries Association is concerned about substantial cuts to national security space programs in the fiscal year 2012 House Defense Appropriations bill.

“We understand the need for belt-tightening in today’s economic climate,” said AIA President and CEO Marion C. Blakey. “However, we are deeply concerned that the cuts to national security space go too far.”

National security space systems provide essential capabilities such as global satellite communications; access to space; positioning, navigation and timing; environmental monitoring; Operationally Responsive Space support to the warfighter; situational awareness and missile warning. Stable funding for these mission areas is critical. Research and development in the House bill was reduced by $2 billion with some individual programs taking significant cuts. Overall, the bill’s reductions for space, not including classified programs, total nearly $600 million. AIA believes such a significant cut on this sector would pose economic and national security challenges because of the vital importance of space capabilities in both areas.

“Long-term funding, block buys and stability are more critical than ever to maintain cutting-edge, cost-effective space programs and a healthy national security space industrial base,” Blakey said. “Cuts of this magnitude risk the loss of skilled workforce and the capability to design and build the space assets on which our warfighters and economy depend.”

AIA urges full funding for:

  • The fiscal year 2012 budget request for national security space programs of $10.2 billion in addition to support of stable RDT&E funding required for development of future capabilities.
  • The Evolutionary Acquisition for Space Efficiency initiative, which will increase stability in the space industrial base.
  • The Operationally Responsive Space initiative consistent with the fiscal year 2011 appropriation of $93.9 million to mature new capabilities to provide rapid support to the warfighter.

Saudi Arabia Pays Raytheon for Air Defense Improvements

June 24, 2011 by · Comment
Filed under: Editorial 

The various oil rich Gulf States have proven to be good markets for the U.S. as well as other defense contractors. In the last ten years especially nations like Saudi Arabia, the U.A.E. and Qatar have invested billions in significant technology upgrades and equipment. Much of this spending has been concentrated on improving their air and missile defense due the threat from Iran and other “rogue” states with some ballistic missile capability.

Both the U.A.E. and Saudi Arabia have invested in ground based systems based on the U.S. Army’s PATRIOT missile. This utilizes a radar by Raytheon (RTN), missiles made either by that company or Lockheed Martin (LMT) as well as command-and-control capabilities. Sales have been in the billions of dollars helping both companies but especially Raytheon who produces the majority of the system.

The expected decline in U.S. and European defense spending will affect these companies bottom line and Raytheon in its most recent quarter did see some warning signs of drops in revenue and earnings. Contracts with overseas customers can help offset these cuts and buoy the defense contractors.

Raytheon has announced several contracts latelywith customers in the Persian Gulf including a PATRIOT one with Kuwait and a large order from Saudi for guided bomb kits. Those were worth well over $600 million but they pale in comparison t the one announced this week.

Saudi Arabia has awarded the Massachusetts based company a contract to upgrade their air defense system worth almost $2 billion. The contract calls for the Saudi military to receive a newer overall version of the PATRIOT system and includes hardware, training and engineering support.

The U.A.E. recently purchased PATRIOT and has also asked for Lockheed’s longer range THAAD system to provide better missile defense. THAAD utilizes a Raytheon radar and Lockheed missile like PATRIOT PAC-3 and there is a potential that Saudi Arabia could follow to get a longer range system. Further investment of this type will only benefit U.S. defense contractors.

UnitedHealthCare Takes Next Step in TRICARE Protest

As we had written last week the Government Accountability Office (GAO) had ruled against UnitedHealthcare’s protest of the award of the Southern Region TRICARE contract. This meant that the contract would go to Humana (HUM) who had actually been the incumbent back in 2009 when the government tried to award the latest group of TRICARE medical management contracts.

TRICARE is the medical insurance program offered by the Pentagon to its active duty members, their dependents, retirees and selected Reservists and National Guardsmen. The country is divided into regions and one insurance company is awarded a contract to manage it. These contracts are quite large in the region of $4-5 billion a year.

In 2009 the government attempted to award new five year contracts for the different regions. Three of the contracts were protested for various reasons but normally because the source selection criteria were not followed correctly. Two of the three have been resolved but the Southern one still remains in a legal battle. Originally Humana lost the contract to UnitedHealthcare but protested. That led to a decision to have a new contest which Humana then one. UnitedHealthcare then protested that decision. The GAO denied the protest and let the award to Humana stand.

Now Unitedhealthcare has decided to sue in the U.S. District Court of Federal Claims which is the next step in the protest process. In their press release from Tuesday the company states: “The Pentagon disregarded its own stated goals for this contract, and military families’ access to quality health care in the South will be put at risk as a result.” The company continues to believe that the decision by the government to choose companies for the TRICARE offering low reimbursement rates limits care and choice for the military.

The lawsuit should take a few months to decide and the current TRICARE contract should continue with Humana

Congress Slashes AMRAAM Funding due to Reported Production Delays

As the operations in Afghanistan and Iraq begin to wind down the U.S. defense budget is already seeing some reductions. The Army especially is adjusting their production numbers for certain systems due to the decline in combat operations lowering requirements for things like M1 tanks and HUMVEE trucks. Congress is also taking upon itself to make selected cuts in other items that they feel are not a priority or are facing issues.

In the House Appropriations Committee (HAC) mark up of the FY12 defense budget one program that saw significant cuts was Raytheon’s (RTN) AMRAAM air-to-air-missile program. The HAC is just one of four committees that produces versions of the defense budget. Once the appropriations and authorization bills are approved by the Senate and House conference committees will meet to create a final version passed by both parts of the legislature.

The reason Congress gave for reducing funding by almost 90 percent to only $63 million was that Raytheon currently is not meeting its delivery schedule. Right now the FY11 production order is delayed and the FY12 one will be even further delayed. Probably neither the U.S. Air Force, Navy and Raytheon will want this budget because they most likely have plans to fix the issue in the next few months and would like to be able to keep the production contracts on time. In the worst case if production does get back on track and there is no money available for the next contract then the line would have to shut down for some time. This would add cost to the program as it would take time and money to get the line going again.

It is not uncommon in these situations where contract awards are delayed beyond the original plan for the money to be moved around by either Congress or internally to the Defense Department to be used to pay for higher priorities.

Just because one of the four committees has made a mark does not mean that it will stand in the final budget. If the Senate or HASC are supportive some of the money may be restored and a compromise would see some amount of funding between the original amount requested and the $50 million provided by the HAC.
