More V-22 Engines for Rolls-Royce

Following the second operational crash of a V-22 during exercises in Morocco there was the usual hand wringing about the safety of the V-22 Osprey tilt-rotor made by Boeing (BA) and Bell, part of Textron (TXT). Even so the program continues with planned expanded deployment and new missions including support of Presidential movement operations.

It has been reported that as part of the planned reductions in spending starting next year that V-22 quantities will be reduced. The total purchased should remain the same but it will be spread over more years. The next five year multiyear production contract is still being negotiated as the current one ends.

Even so the Pentagon went ahead and place orders for engines to support delivery of over 100 more aircraft with Rolls Royce (RR). The almost $600 million contract for 268 engines will have one base and four options years. The base contract will be for 70 engines.

The company has delivered over 500 engines for the V-22 program.

The V-22 offers unique capabilities compared to traditional rotary wing aviation assets. It has served in Iraq and Afghanistan with no combat losses although an Air Force one crashed in Afghanistan and now a Marine one has crashed as well. It is planned to replace Navy logistics aircraft as well as serve more with the Marines and Air Force Special Operations.

Boeing and Bell are obviously looking for new missions and customers for the aircraft. Certainly there may be pressure as the Pentagon reduces its budget to cut the number of V-22 to buy as they are expensive to buy and operate. The more that are sold, though, drives down the price for every customer.

Lockheed Gains From L-3 Suspension as it Starts Supporting Air Force SOCOM

The U.S. Air Force recently suspended L-3 Communications Holdings (LLL) from work on various contracts because it faces criminal investigation over misusing government email and IT systems. Because of this suspension Lockheed Martin (LMT) was given the contract back to execute. The total value of the contract if all options are executed is about $5 billion.

L-3′s Special Support Programs Division is now banned at least temporarily from receiving new contracts or task orders. The group had a contract to manage the U.S. Air Force Special Operations Command’s IT network including email. The company used their access to the system to examine emails from government employees, their own workers as well as contractors to look at bidding on other contracts. They also attempted to discover if their employees were sharing information with other companies relative to competitions.

The news and suspension have had little effect on the company’s stock with it closing yesterday at 88.39, down a little over one-quarter-of-one-percent. If the case goes on to find criminal acts the company could see more suspensions, fines and limits on their ability to bid on new contracts as a whole rather then with just one unit.

Lockheed will transition to take over the contract over the next four months, slowly assuming the duties. Lockheed had won the work away from L-3 in 2009 but the two companies were waiting on a protest filed by the loser to be resolved. The decision to suspend the group means that Lockheed will get the contract which will last until late into the next decade. The wait to resolve the protest by the GAO may have delayed the start of this work by several more months.

Lockheed Martin Demonstrates The Future Of Net-Enabled Warfare At JEFX 10

Lockheed Martin Demonstrates The Future Of Net-Enabled Warfare At JEFX 10
April 29, 2010 3:00 PM

FORT WORTH, TEXAS, -- A Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) F-16 demonstrated enhanced networked-enabled capabilities during the U.S. Air Force's Joint Expeditionary Force Experiment 2010 (JEFX 10), April 13-23, at Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada.

JEFX, planned and executed by the Global Cyberspace Integration Center, is a venue for innovative command and control (C2) and targeting technologies. This year's event focused on improving the U.S. forces' ability to conduct irregular warfare (IW). Lockheed Martin's participation, under the sponsorship of Air Combat Command, centered on the potential benefits of Internet Protocol (IP)-based applications in an irregular warfare context while conducting close air support (CAS) missions. Lockheed Martin's efforts tied in with Air Force Special Operations Command enhanced capabilities in an integrated operational thread.

During the two week experiment, F-16 pilots demonstrated the capability of the Lockheed Martin Sniper SE advanced targeting pod's enhanced resolution sensor suite for improved combat identification of ground targets. Sniper SE's ability to simultaneously track multiple ground vehicles moving through a complex urban environment lowers the pilot's workload while increasing mission effectiveness.

Using Cursor on Target protocol, continuous targeting information on moving ground vehicles was automatically transmitted to Special Operations Forces (SOF) teams via a Harris Corporation Falcon III® AN/PRC-117G radio using the Advanced Networking Wideband Waveform (ANW2) capability. The wideband networking allowed the formation of mobile ad-hoc radio networks and enabled the transmission of high-bandwidth data and streaming video. Ground teams, each using the U.S. Special Operations Command developed Battlefield Air Operations Kit, subscribed to the F-16's network to display the vehicles' real-time location on each SOF ground operator's map display. Full motion video from Sniper SE was simultaneously streamed over the network as pilots and SOF teams coordinated attacks using simultaneous text messaging, chat and annotated imagery.

In addition to exploring ANW2 capabilities, Lockheed Martin also demonstrated the use of the Rockwell Collins-developed Tactical Targeting Network Technology (TTNT) to collaborate with a wide group of airborne and ground C2 nodes. Acting as a gateway and using the space-based Integrated Broadcast Service (IBS), air crews received current intelligence information on friendly and enemy forces, then automatically translated and republished the information via TTNT, ANW2 and Link 16.

"Improving the SA (situational awareness) of the pilots is vital," said Colonel Tim Forsythe, chief of Air Combat Command's combat aircraft division. "If we can pump data into those cockpits before we launch or even update it while we're on the fly via IBS it will generate more awareness for the pilot arriving in the collaboration airspace of CAS and IW."

"Partnership with the warfighter is absolutely essential in developing robust product roadmaps," said Mark Jefferson, director for Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Horizontal Integration. "Our ability to integrate advanced capabilities and new technologies into current and challenging environments, such as the irregular warfare operations developed for JEFX 10, allows us to experiment with the fundamental elements necessary for tomorrow's net-enabled warfighting."

Skelton Praises U.S. Armed Forces on Haiti Earthquake Relief Effort

Washington, D.C. – House Armed Services Committee Chairman Ike Skelton (D-Mo.) delivered the following remarks during consideration of H. Res. 1066, recognizing the bravery and efforts of the United States Armed Forces, local first responders, and other members of Operation Unified Response for their swift and coordinated action in light of the devastation wrought upon the nation of Haiti after a horrific 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck Port-Au-Prince and surrounding cities on January 12, 2010:

“Madam Speaker, I rise today in support of House Resolution 1066, recognizing the bravery and efforts of the United States Armed Forces, local first responders and all those involved with Operation Unified Response. I want to thank my colleagues for bringing this important measure before the House.

“On January 12th, a massive earthquake struck the nation of Haiti that was followed by a series of very powerful aftershocks that left catastrophic damage in and around the city of Port-au-Prince. The devastation resulted in an estimated 100,000-200,000 deaths, including over 100 Americans reported dead and 3 million Haitians directly affected by the earthquake.

“The United States acted immediately, setting up a whole-of-government response with U.S Agency for International Development in the lead, and the Armed Forces playing a leading role. Within 24 hours, the U.S had deployed Air Force special operations forces to secure the Port-au-Prince airport and re-establish airport operations, deployed the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson, and started preparing both Army and Marine units for immediate deployment to the region.

“Within two weeks, the United States had deployed 25 Navy and Coast Guard ships, 79 helicopters, 290 vehicles, and 21,493 U.S. Armed Forces personnel. Military medical assets had treated over 4,000 patients of which 2,000 were treated aboard the hospital ship USNS Comfort. The U.S had distributed 1.9 million bottles of water, 1.7 million meals, and over 74,000 pounds of medical supplies.

“This critical contribution to the Haiti relief effort comes at a time when the men and women of our military are already being stretched by two wars. Our troops have once again demonstrated their capability to respond quickly and effectively when disaster strikes.

“U.S. military service members and their families make tremendous sacrifices, both for our nation and in working to help people in times of need all over the world. On behalf of Congress, I want to thank our heroes in uniform and all those involved in Operation Unified Response for their extraordinary contributions to the Haitian people. I urge my colleagues to support this important resolution and I reserve the balance of my time.”
