Air Force Light Attack Contract Gets More Curious

Update – Last night Embraer confirmed receipt of the $355 million contract for twenty aircraft and their support.

It came out today as part of Hawker Beechcraft’s suit against the U.S. Air Force over their denied protest about their exclusion from the Light Attack aircraft competition that the contract has been awarded to the team of Sierra Nevada and Brazil’s Embraer. Hawker had submitted a version of their T-6 trainer for an aircraft initially to potentially be used by Afghanistan and the U.S.

The Air Force eliminated the proposal from consideration as not being technically responsive. Hawker protested to the Government Accountability Office ( GAO) but was denied by that agency. Hawker then sued as the next step in the protest process. That case is being expedited by the Federal Court responsible for these cases.

The notice of the award tothe only remaining bidder came without seemingly either public notice by the Defense Department or Congressional notification. This latest move will only further raise questions especially of those in Congress who support Hawker.

Lockheed’s F-35 Customers Grow As Japan Selects It For New Fighter

The Japanese government announced overnight that they have chosen the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter manufactured by Lockheed Martin (LMT) to be their new fighter aircraft. The advanced aircraft will replace some of the F-15J fighters that have been in service since the Eighties. The F-35 was in competition with Boeing’s (BA) F/A-18 and Eurofighter’s Typhoon aircraft.

Japan joins the list of foreign partners in the the program which is the largest acquisition program in history. Along with the United States the F-35 will also be used by the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Canada, Australia and Norway. It is designed to replace the majority of the F-16, F/A-18 and AV-8 aircraft used by these countries as well as the U.S. Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps.

Ultimately the F-35 will be built in the thousands and serve until the middle of this century.

As with many of the purchasing countries Japanese industry will be able to help build parts and components of the F-35 and assist in the assembly if a deal can be worked out. This approach worked out well for the F-16 and the F-35 is trying to mirror that. Some of the buyers also invested their own R&D funds up front for the aircraft.

The F-35 program has seen struggles with its costs and schedule since its inception. Currently the U.S. has ordered five production lots of the aircraft but a recent assessment found more issues that will have to be worked out through development indicating that there remains a great deal of concurrent risk with the program.

Flat U.S. Defense Budget Through Congress

The U.S. Congress completed work on the defense budget with the Senate voting to accept the current bill and send it to President Obama who is expected despite his various blusters on vetoes to sign it. The bill contains $662 billion in funding for the Defense Department and its services.

This actually represents a decline in spending compared to the FY11 budget. The total is $27 billion below the President’s request and $43 billion less then the 2011 budget which itself was a slight increase on FY10. Of course a good deal of the difference is due to the fact that operations in Iraq are almost over requiring a great deal less funding then before. The fighting in Afghanistan remains funded.

The budget continues most major programs and all of the fighting was over parts of the language in the bill. These include a new controversial detainee policy and a change to the Universal Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) to remove language due to the end of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”. In the final bill the detainee provisions were left in and the UCMJ not changed.

Now that defense is done the Congress is trying to complete an Omnibus spending bill for the remaining parts of the executive branch worth about $1 trillion. This needs to be done by midnight tonight to avoid a Government shutdown.

FIRST COMBAT EVALUATION OF JTRS RIFLEMAN RADIO CONDUCTED BY 75th RANGER REGIMENT — Press Release

FIRST COMBAT EVALUATION OF JTRS RIFLEMAN RADIO CONDUCTED BY 75th RANGER REGIMENT

SAN DIEGO-The Handheld, Manpack, Small Form Fit (HMS) Program Office of the Joint Program Executive Office Joint Tactical Radio System (JPEO JTRS) and the US Army 75th Ranger Regiment are leading the way towards effective interoperable Warfighter communications by bringing the digital battlefield to the tactical edge in Afghanistan. Elements of the 75th Ranger Regiment have deployed to Afghanistan with the AN/PRC-154 Rifleman Radio as their intra-squad radio, coupled with the GD300 end user device display which the Rangers have been developing with General Dynamics. This system provides networked voice and data communications and digital situational awareness down to the individual soldier, and the Rangers’ deployment signifies the first combat use of the system.

The AN/PRC-154 is an individual radio which provides networked voice and data communications through the use of the terrain defeating Soldier Radio Waveform up to a 2 KM range. The GD300 is an android based, environmentally protected individual leader display. When paired with the Rifleman Radio, the position/location information of all soldiers in the network are displayed on the map or pictorial graphics the soldiers are operating in. The Rangers are also using Tactical Ground Reporting (TIGR) mobile application on the GD300 to send text, situation reports, and other applications.

The HMS Program and the Rangers have partnered over the past year to assess the AN/PRC-154 Rifleman Radio and the AN/PRC-155 Manpack to provide critical feedback for making the equipment combat ready. The regiment conducted three separate training evaluations throughout 2011 to ensure the system was mature enough to use in theater. Information gathered during those exercises led to significant software modifications which made both the radio and the display more tactically relevant and user friendly. Success from those events led to the decision from both the program office and the Ranger Regiment that the system was ready for combat evaluation.

The purpose of the Rangers’ operational assessment is to evaluate the suitability and reliability of the system and determine how networked communications and situational awareness can improve mission effectiveness. In addition, their feedback will provide critical information to incorporate prior to fielding elements of the system to the US Army as a whole.

Agreement Reached on Latest Production Order for Lockeed’s F-35 JSF

The Pentagon and Lockheed Martin (LMT) signed a deal on Friday for the latest production order for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF). The F-35 is the newest combat aircraft for use by the U.S. Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps as well as many allied nations across the world. It will slowly begin replacing the Eighties’ generation F-16, F/A-18 and A/V-8A tactical aircraft.

The contract is worth about $4 billion and will buy 30 F-35 aircraft in the three variants being developed. This includes 21 Air Force Conventional / Take Off and Landing (CTOL), 6 carrier based aircraft and 3 Vertical Take Off and Landing (VTOL) versions for the Marines.

Last fiscal year advanced procurement was awarded in the amount of roughly $500 million last year. This was was for 38 aircraft but after negotiations and the price challenges the JSF program is facing only 30 ended up being bought in the full production contract.

Lockheed along with many other defense contractors is involved in complex discussions with the Defense Department as to how to apportion risk and its costs. The Government would like more transferred to the contractor and obviously the contractor would like to minimize that. In June the Senate tried to write language into the defense authorization bill requiring a fixed price contract for this production buy but this was resisted by both Lockheed and the DoD.

The JSF program while slowly ramping up production still has a lot of testing and development to go. Traditionally this has required a Cost Plus based contract as Lockheed cannot necessarily predict how much work needs to be done or its cost. The Government would assume most of the risk at this stage due to the immaturity of the aircraft and the potential for changes to requirements and configurations. The desire to transfer the risk to the contractor is motivated by saving money but it could drive up bids and costs as well as reduce competition and delay contract negotiations and awards.

The JSF has had its share of cost, schedule and testing troubles. It is moving a lot slower then originally intended and will cost more then planned. The need for a new aircraft, though, is great as the U.S. has an aging F-15, F-16, and F/A-18 fleet. Cancelling the JSF as some have discussed would just mean either a new, existing aircraft would have to be bought or another development program would be started. Without significant changes in requirements the cost would be the same, if not more, if this course was pursued.
