U.S. Marine Corps to Keep K-MAX Unmanned Cargo Re-supply Helicopter in Theater for Second Deployment Extension — Press Release

WEBSTER FIELD, Md., July 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — For the second time this year, the U.S. Marine Corps has approved the deployment extension of K-MAX Cargo UAS, the first unmanned helicopter to deliver cargo and resupply troops in a combat zone.

By supplying forward operating bases with K-MAX instead of ground convoy or manned aircraft, the Marine Corps has reduced the threat posed to personnel by improvised explosive devices by thousands of hours.

Earlier this year, the Marine Corps requested the aircraft, a joint effort by Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) and Kaman Aerospace (NYSE: KAMN), stay in theater through September 30, the end of this fiscal year. Today’s announcement extends K-MAX service in Afghanistan for an additional six months and includes an option to extend its time through September 2013.

“K-MAX has proven its value as a reliable cargo resupply aircraft and an asset that saves lives,” said Vice Adm. David Architzel, commander of Naval Air Systems Command, which manages the K-MAX program for the Marine Corps. “The use of this aircraft eliminates the need for manned ground convoys, reducing the number of our warfighters exposed to improvised explosive devices.”

The K-MAX program, developed to satisfy a Joint Urgent Operational Need Statement generated by the Marine Corps in 2010, has flown 485 sorties, 525 hours and lifted more than 1.6 million pounds of cargo since it arrived in theater in November 2011. In May, the aircraft performed a historic “hot hook-up,” enabling personnel to attach cargo to the unmanned aircraft while in hover mode. That capability is now used regularly to perform retrograde missions (when cargo is carried on the return flight as well), increasing the efficiency of the K-MAX.

Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security and aerospace company that employs about 120,000 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 net sales for 2011 were $46.5 billion.

Kaman Helicopters is a division of Kaman Aerospace Corporation, a subsidiary of Kaman Corporation (NYSE: KAMN). Founded in 1945 by aviation pioneer Charles H. Kaman, and headquartered in Bloomfield, Connecticut. Kaman conducts business in the aerospace and industrial distribution markets. The company produces and/or markets widely used proprietary aircraft bearings and components; complex metallic and composite aerostructures for commercial, military and general aviation fixed and rotary wing aircraft; safing and arming solutions for missile and bomb systems for the U.S. and allied militaries; subcontract helicopter work; and support for the company’s SH-2G Super Seasprite maritime helicopters and K-MAX medium-to-heavy lift helicopters. The company is also a leading distributor of industrial parts, and operates nearly 200 customer service centers and five distribution centers across North America.

Northrop Upgrading B-1 Radars

Modern combat aircraft have become like ships in that they now serve for several decades receiving incremental refits and upgrades. Even while new systems are being developed and deployed older designs get new electronics, engines and munitions that enhance their effectiveness and usefulness.

The U.S. Air Force has done this consistently with their bomber force which consists of B-52 aircraft first delivered in the 1950′s, the 1980 built B-1 and the stealth B-2 delivered in the 90′s. A new bomber design is being developed but for the last eleven years of fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan it has been existing aircraft flying the missions.

Northrop Grumman (NOC) has just delivered the first kit to upgrade the B-1′s radar and it has already been installed on an aircraft. The Radar Reliability and Maintainability Program (RMIP) has so far been worth $161 million for the company. So far 60 kits have been purchased along with spares, support and test equipment.

The RMIP replaces portions of the existing AN/APQ-164 radar in order to make it more reliable and easier to maintain. The goal is to reduce repairs, improve availability and reduce maintenance requirements which should save money overall.

Northrop developed the kit prior to the award of the production contracts. There are close to 100 B-1 in U.S. inventory which means up to 40 more kits would be purchased if all of the aircraft will be updated.

Inmarsat, JSAT MOBILE and NTT DOCOMO join forces to launch IsatPhone Pro™ in Japan — Press Release

  • Leading mobile giant JSAT MOBILE has secured IsatPhone Pro radio licence for Japan
  • ·NTT DOCOMO delivers award-winning global handheld satellite phone in partnership with JSAT MOBILE
  • IsatPhone Pro to debut on Japanese market in August 2012

SINGAPORE/LONDON – 26 July 2012 – Inmarsat (LSE:ISAT.L), the leading provider of global mobile satellite communications services, today announced the launch of its award-winning global satellite handheld IsatPhone Pro™ in Japan. The trusted IsatPhone Pro will be available to Japanese users from the beginning of August 2012.

Japan’s largest mobile carrier NTT DOCOMO, Inc. will deliver IsatPhone Pro to the Japanese market in partnership with JSAT MOBILE Communications Inc., a joint venture between Inmarsat and SKY Perfect JSAT Corporation which is Asia-Pacific’s largest satellite operator and is also Japan’s largest DTH broadcasting platform operator, SKY PerfecTV!

Inmarsat’s IsatPhone Pro offers the ultimate combination of global coverage on the world’s most reliable satellite network, a robust handset, and the longest battery life available in the market, with eight hours of talk time and up to a hundred hours of standby time.

In addition to essential satellite telephony, data, text and email messaging, IsatPhone Pro provides GPS location and social media services. IsatPhone Pro users can send their GPS location, and access Twitter from anywhere in the world using the handset’s short messaging service (SMS) function.

Eiichi Yoda, President and Chief Executive Officer, JSAT MOBILE said: “The interest in satellite phones for business continuity and disaster recovery has greatly increased after the Great East Japan Earthquake of March 2011. It is our pleasure to respond to customer demand by introducing Inmarsat’s IsatPhone Pro in Japan. We feel that this will be a very significant opportunity.”

The introduction of IsatPhone Pro addresses the growing demand among Japanese customers for an easy-to-use handheld satellite phone. The service complements NTT DOCOMO’s existing mobile satellite services portfolio, centred on Widestar and Widestar II.

Commenting on the announcement, Lizzie Greenwood, Asia-Pacific Director, Global Government, at Inmarsat said: “We are excited to partner with such a world-leader as NTT DOCOMO to launch IsatPhone Pro in Japan. This is a key market for Inmarsat and launching IsatPhone Pro here is an important milestone for us.”

IsatPhone Pro is poised to be a major enhancement to solutions for disaster preparedness, aid mobilisation, and other mission-critical communications requirements. “Mobile satellite communications provide vital back-up and lifeline connectivity. In times of emergency or when terrestrial communications are down, satcom services could help save lives and significantly mitigate the impact of natural catastrophes on business continuity,” she continued.

FMS of Apache to Persian Gulf States to Grow

The United States has over the last decades sold billions to the various Gulf States to counter threats first from Iraq and now Iran. This has included increasingly sophisticated systems such as the PATRIOT and THAAD missile defense systems, C-17 transports and large amounts of helicopters. One aircraft that has proven popular is the AH-64D Apache attack helicopter made by Boeing (BA).

This is in use with countries like Saudi Arabia, Israel, Egypt, the U.A.E. and others. Now it is being reported that Qatar has made a request for up to 24 of the helicopters. The deal if fully executed would be worth about $3 billion. This includes not only the new aircraft but also spares, support equipment, training and weaponry.

Qatar has also proposed buying Black Hawk helicopters from the U.S. made by United Technology’s (UTX) Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation.

The addition of the Apache increases commonality with the U.S. military as well as providing significant capability for the Qatar military. These aircraft have seen heavy use in Iraq and Afghanistan providing fire support for ground troops as well as carrying out strike missions.

House Supports Status Quo for FY13 Defense Spending

The House of Representatives passed their version of the FY13 defense appropriations act last night. In a surprise to leadership of both sides a group of Republican and Democratic members joined to pass a bill that kept funding at 2012 levels.  This means the Pentagon will receive just over $608 billion.  Now the House must wait for the Senate to pass their bill and a Conference Committee will come up with the final version.

It wouldn’t be Congress without some specific marks and disagreements with the proposed plans of the Obama Administration.  These include language preventing the Air Force from retiring their C-23, C-27 and Global Hawk aircraft.  It also reduced spending on biofuels and provided for no pay raise for civilian workers.  It also keeps shipbuilding plans at a higher rate then requested.

The defense budget like all of Federal spending is facing the possibility of large cuts due to the failure of a budget deal last year leading to planned sequestration of funding.  This could see upwards of $50 billion or more automatically cut from the defense budget.  Industry, some in Congress and others are fighting those plans.  If the defense budget is not cut this way then other parts of the budget would have to be to make up for it.

SAIC To Acquire maxIT Healthcare — Press Release

Company Adds Leading Healthcare IT Consulting Firm To Health Solutions Business, Bolstering Growth Plans In Commercial Healthcare Market

MCLEAN, Va., July 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) (NYSE: SAI) today announced it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire maxIT Healthcare Holdings, Inc., a leading healthcare IT (Information Technology) consulting firm based in Westfield, Ind.

maxIT Healthcare, the largest private independent healthcare IT consulting company in North America, provides a comprehensive range of healthcare IT services and solutions primarily to commercial hospital groups and other medical delivery organizations. These include IT strategy and planning, electronic health record (EHR) implementation and optimization, and management consulting across a broad range of activities such as accountable care transformation, revenue cycle improvement, and support in meeting the U.S. Government’s meaningful use requirements necessary to obtain incentive payments from the government in connection with implementing EHR capability.

maxIT Healthcare has an extensive commercial customer base and has served more than 600 hospitals, hospital groups, physician practices and accountable care organizations (ACOs) in the U.S. and Canada. The company’s established expertise and knowledge within commercial hospitals and ambulatory clinics, as well as its exceptional reputation, will be combined with SAIC’s Vitalize Consulting Solutions (VCS) team, which SAIC acquired in 2011, bringing together some of the best consultants in the commercial healthcare industry. This combination creates the nation’s largest commercial consulting practice in EHR implementation and optimization services and enables the combined operations to better serve healthcare providers by helping them achieve their universal objectives – reduced healthcare costs, effective use of data to make more informed decisions, and improved patient care.

The combination of maxIT Healthcare with VCS also strengthens SAIC’s capabilities to provide EHR implementation and integration services to its strong base of Federal healthcare customers as they increasingly migrate toward the incorporation of commercial off the shelf (COTS) EHR applications. As both commercial and Federal healthcare providers begin to fully extract value from their EHR solutions, SAIC is well positioned to leverage its service offerings in systems integration and interoperability, health sciences and advanced data analytics to assist providers in realizing the promise of personalization in delivering value based healthcare.

As a result of the acquisition, approximately 1,300 employees from maxIT Healthcare will join SAIC’s Health Solutions Business Unit (HSBU), led by Steve Comber. HSBU is a part of the Health, Energy and Civil Solutions Group, led by SAIC Group President Joe Craver.

“The maxIT Healthcare team brings significant capabilities and talent to SAIC, as well as an outstanding reputation with its customers for providing the highest level of service,” said Craver. “Combined with our acquisition of VCS, this deal enhances SAIC’s capabilities to address the nation’s challenge of rising healthcare costs, access to quality care, and the need to improve patient outcomes.”

“The combined strengths of maxIT, SAIC and VCS will be a significant differentiator in the healthcare IT market. We look forward to continued growth as part of the SAIC team, while maintaining flexibility to meet the ever-changing needs of the healthcare market,” said Mike Sweeney, president and CEO of maxIT Healthcare.

Parker Hinshaw, maxIT Healthcare founder, added, “We share so much already with the SAIC team – high ethical values and culture, financially sound business practices, and most importantly, our passion for making a significant difference in one of the most important industries in the world, healthcare.”

The acquisition is expected to close in August 2012, subject to customary closing conditions, including expiration or early termination of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act. At closing, SAIC will pay approximately $473 million, subject to adjustment, from cash on hand to acquire maxIT Healthcare. In addition, SAIC expects to pay up to $20 million to maxIT Healthcare shareholders after receipt of certain tax refunds following closing.

JTRS Man Portable Radios To Complete LRIP

The Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) is the next generation of radios for the U.S. armed forces. It is being developed and produced in a variety of form factors and roles to support ships, vehicles, aircraft and man portable systems. The program has had its ups-and-downs but recently has made a decent amount of progress. The man portable Rifleman Radio recently had a Full Rate Production (FRP) decision and was approved to enter that phase of the acquisition cycle.

The current Low Rate Initial Production (LRIP) contract belongs to a team of General Dynamics (GD); French company, Thales SA (HO), and Rockwell COllins (COL) to build the initial lot of over 6,000. This decision allows LRIP to be completed with the buyout of the remaining 13,000 odd systems to get to 10% of the planned production buy of 193,000 units.

The AN/PRC-154 Rifleman Radio provides voice and data simultaneous capability and is carried on the body of a soldier. It is used for intra-squad level communications and is compatible with current smartphone technology.

When the LRIP production is complete the Pentagon will have another contest for the FRP contract. This means that despite their good performance on the current contract there is no guarantee that the GD led team will win this. The final program could provide upwards of $1 billion in revenue for the winner of the larger production contract.
