MEADS Successfully Intercepts Air-Breathing Target at White Sands Missile Range — Press Release

ORLANDO, Fla., MUNICH, and ROME, Nov. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — The Medium Extended Air Defense System (MEADS) detected, tracked, intercepted and destroyed an air-breathing target in its first-ever intercept flight test today at White Sands Missile Range, N.M. The test achieved all criteria for success.

MEADS is a next-generation, ground-mobile air and missile defense system that incorporates 360-degree radars, netted and distributed battle management, easily transportable launchers and the hit-to-kill PAC-3 Missile Segment Enhancement (MSE) Missile. The system combines superior battlefield protection with new flexibility to protect forces and critical assets against tactical ballistic missiles, cruise missiles, unmanned aerial vehicles and aircraft.

The MEADS test configuration included a networked MEADS battle manager, lightweight launcher firing a PAC-3 MSE Certified Missile Round and a 360-degree MEADS Multifunction Fire Control Radar (MFCR), which tracked the MQM-107 target and guided the missile to a successful intercept.

“Today’s successful flight test further demonstrates MEADS’ ability to identify, track, engage and defeat targets attacking from any direction using a single mobile launcher,” said NATO MEADS Management Agency General Manager Gregory Kee. “MEADS is proving its capability to defend our warfighters and key assets against a growing 21st century threat.”

The test exploited the MEADS capability for full-perimeter, 360-degree defense with the PAC-3 MSE Missile performing a unique over-the-shoulder maneuver to defeat the target attacking from behind the MEADS emplacement.

“MEADS provides advanced capabilities that detect, track and intercept evolving threats from farther away and without blind spots,” said MEADS International President Dave Berganini. “Today’s successful intercept proves MEADS’ advertised capabilities are real. Its digital designs and modern hardware and software ensure high reliability rates and dramatically reduced operational and support costs.”

The MFCR is an X-band, solid-state, active electronically scanned array radar which provides precision tracking and wideband discrimination and classification capabilities. For extremely rapid deployments, the MEADS MFCR can provide both surveillance and fire control capabilities until a surveillance radar joins the network. An advanced identify friend-or-foe subsystem supports improved passive threat identification and typing.

Using its 360-degree defensive capability, the advanced MEADS radars and PAC-3 MSE Missile, MEADS defends up to eight times the coverage area with far fewer system assets and significantly reduces demand for deployed personnel and equipment, which reduces demand for airlift.

MEADS successfully completed its first flight test on November 17, 2011, against a simulated target attacking from behind. A PAC-3 MSE Certified Missile Round was employed during the test along with the MEADS lightweight launcher and battle manager.

MEADS International, a multinational joint venture headquartered in Orlando, Fla., is the prime contractor for the MEADS system. Major subcontractors and joint venture partners are MBDA in Italy and Germany, and Lockheed Martin in the United States.

The MEADS program management agency NAMEADSMA is located in Huntsville, Ala.

US Army certifies soldiers ready to defend battlespace against missiles, swarming boats with JLENS — Press Release

Warfighters are now qualified to deploy and operate with Raytheon’s surveillance system

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Aug. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Combatant commanders moved one step closer to being able to detect, track and engage threats such as swarming boats and incoming cruise missiles, around the clock, from hundreds of miles away. In June 2012, the first class of U.S. Army soldiers completed mission operator training on the Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) JLENS elevated, persistent over-the-horizon sensor system.

“Now that the classroom studies and simulation activities are complete, these soldiers are fully prepared to begin structured, on-the-job training on the actual JLENS hardware,” said Dean Barten, the U.S. Army’s JLENS product manager.

JLENS uses a powerful integrated radar system to detect, track and target a variety of threats. This capability better enables commanders to defend against threats, including hostile cruise missiles, low-flying manned and unmanned aircraft, large caliber rockets, and moving surface vehicles such as boats, SCUD-launchers, automobiles and tanks.

“JLENS tracks a wide range of targets at extremely long ranges providing commanders minutes to identify and respond to incoming threats instead of the handful of seconds provided by current systems,” said David Gulla, vice president of Global Integrated Sensors for Raytheon’s Integrated Defense Systems business. “JLENS could be tested abroad today to evaluate its effectiveness in defending assets critical to our national security.”

During the class, soldiers learned to use JLENS to detect and target incoming cruise missiles, and track ships, cars, trucks and boats. They also practiced setting up the system and communicating information gleaned from JLENS sensors to U.S. Army, Navy and Air Force counterparts.

About JLENS

  • A JLENS system, referred to as an orbit, consists of two tethered, 74-meter aerostats connected to mobile mooring stations and a communications and processing group.
  • The aerostats fly as high as 10,000 feet and can remain aloft and operational for up to 30 days.
  • One aerostat carries a surveillance radar with 360-degree surveillance capability; the other aerostat carries a fire control radar.

Raytheon’s First New-production Patriot System Debuts in Successful Flight Test — Press Release

TEWKSBURY, Mass., March 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) successfully completed a system-level guided flight test of the new-production Patriot at White Sands Missile Range, N.M. The modernized Patriot provides an affordable, low-risk and rapid path to meet the warfighter’s current and future air and missile defense requirements.

“The system’s flawless performance using all newly-built major end items is a significant milestone for global air and missile defense. It also highlights the capability of the combat-proven Patriot and the viability of the global Patriot supply base,” said Sanjay Kapoor, vice president for Integrated Air and Missile Defense at Raytheon’s Integrated Defense Systems business. “Our customers and warfighters will greatly benefit from the new designs, such as the color LCD displays with touch screens and digital track via missile guidance.”

The system-level test used new-production major end items (radar, Guidance Enhanced Missile-Tactical [GEM-T] missile, launching station, Information Coordination Central, and Engagement Control Station) against a long-standing performance scenario to verify system capability.

In the guided test flight, the system searched, detected and tracked an air-breathing target flying at a low altitude in a high-clutter environment, which the GEM-T missile engaged and destroyed. This scenario was specifically chosen by Raytheon and the U.S. Army for its ability to provide a rigorous test of all aspects of the Patriot system. This builds on the successful test of the first new ground-up production GEM-T missile announced last October.

About Patriot

Patriot is the world’s most capable air and missile defense system, protecting against a full range of advanced threats, including aircraft, tactical ballistic missiles, cruise missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles. It is the system of choice for 12 nations around the globe.

Raytheon is the prime contractor for both domestic and international Patriot Air and Missile Defense Systems and system integrator for Patriot Advanced Capability-3 missiles.

Lockheed Martin JASSM® Lot 8 Software Validated During Flight Test — Press Release

Lockheed Martin JASSM® Lot 8 Software Validated During Flight Test

ORLANDO, Fla., July 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Lockheed Martin’s (NYSE: LMT) Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile (JASSM) recently completed a successful Product Verification Test (PVT) at White Sands Missile Range, N.M.

Released by a B-52 at an altitude of 25,000 feet, and speed of Mach 0.76, JASSM navigated through a preplanned route before destroying its intended target, meeting all mission objectives. The test validated software upgrades for 158 Lot 8 JASSM missiles, which will begin delivery in third quarter 2011.

“Flight validation of JASSM’s software enhancements continues our efforts to expand missile capability and demonstrate reliability,” said Alan Jackson, JASSM program director in Lockheed Martin’s Missiles and Fire Control business. “Additionally, we are constantly striving to make JASSM more affordable for our customers.”

The JASSM PVT success follows the Lot 9 contract award for 170 baseline and 30 Extended Range (ER) missiles, ongoing F-15E integration test flights, and the January 2011 JASSM-ER Milestone C low rate initial production decision.

JASSM is a critical weapon for the U.S. Air Force. The program has over 1,400 missiles on contract, with more than 1,080 delivered. Also produced for foreign military sale, baseline JASSM is integrated on multiple aircraft including the B-1, B-2, B-52, F-16 and F-18 aircraft. F-15E integration is proceeding as planned with the F-35 designated as a future platform.

Armed with a dual-mode penetrator and blast fragmentation warhead, JASSM and JASSM-ER cruise autonomously day or night in all weather conditions. Both missile variants share the same powerful capabilities and stealthy characteristics, though JASSM-ER has more than two-and-a-half times the range of baseline JASSM for greater standoff range. Both 2,000-pound cruise missiles employ a state-of-the-art infrared seeker and Global Positioning System receiver to dial into specific target aimpoints.

Lockheed Martin manufactures JASSM at the company’s world-class, award-winning manufacturing facility in Troy, Ala.

Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security company that employs about 126,000 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.

More E-2D Hawkeye LRIP Aircraft Ordered from Northrop Grumman (NOC)

Almost four years ago the U.S. Navy placed a contract for the initial advanced procurement and long lead items for their next generation carrier based Airborne Early Warning (AEW) aircraft, the E-2D Hawkeye. The E-2D manufactured by Northrop Grumman (NOC) is an evolution of the E-2C which has been in service since the late Seventies.

The E-2D offers an advanced radar, APY-9, that offers much improved performance over the radar of the E-2C. This includes the ability to detect smaller targets nearer the surface. Something that is becoming more critical due to the proliferation of small, fast anti-ship cruise missiles now used by even smaller threat nations such as Iran.

This week the Navy continued the program by awarding the third lot’s production contract. This $760 million effort pays for the five more of the aircraft as well as the long lead items for the fourth lot. With these two lots added to the first two there are well over a dozen E-2D in production now for the Navy.

The U.S. currently operates two primary AEW aircraft – the Hawkeye and the Air Force’s E-3 Sentry AWACS aircraft based on the Boeing (BA) 707. The Air Force has consistently upgraded the E-3 while it has considered replacement with a variety of systems including Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) such as the Global Hawk system also manufactured by Northrop. So far nothing has been brought forward into production.

The Navy has continued incremental improvements leading to the development and production of the E-2D which offers much improved performance over the E-2C on the same basic airframe and form. As long as the U.S. Navy continues to operate large deck aircraft carriers there will be a need for AEW aircraft and the E-2 should continue in service for several more years.

The color graphical user interface and touch-screen display enhance the operator's ability to identify targets and priority alerts. They are also part of the state-of-the-art ergonomics that help reduce operator fatigue.

The modernized Patriot system is globally deployed and readily available. Today, 12 partner nations rely on the combat-proven Patriot as the foundation of their air and missile defense capabilities.

Raytheon IDS is the prime contractor for both domestic and international Patriot Air and Missile Defense Systems and system integrator for Patriot Advanced Capability-3 missiles.

U.S. Navy Awards Raytheon $368 Million in Contracts for Standard Missile-6
July 6, 2010

TUCSON, Ariz., - The U.S. Navy awarded Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) contracts totaling $368 million with potential modifications for low rate initial production to manufacture Standard Missile-6 systems over a three-year period.

The contracts include the production of missiles, spare parts, and system and design engineering efforts. Raytheon will deliver the first missiles in early 2011.

"Low rate initial production begins our process of delivering this integral weapon system to the warfighter," said Frank Wyatt, vice president of Raytheon's Air and Missile Defense Systems product line. "Standard Missile-6 remains on schedule, and we brought in the first three years of production well under the Navy's budget."

SM-6 is being developed to meet the U.S. Navy's requirement for an extended-range anti-air warfare missile. The system will provide a defensive capability against fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles and anti-ship cruise missiles.

"Standard Missile-6 is in development testing now and will go into operational testing in fiscal year 2011, with initial operational capability by March 2011," said Wyatt. "SM-6 is capable of over-the-horizon air defense and takes full advantage of the kinematics available to the Standard Missile family, allowing the use of both active and semiactive modes and advanced fuzing techniques."

Boeing Completes Preliminary Design of Free Electron Laser Weapon System
March 18, 2010

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., -- The Boeing Company [NYSE: BA] has successfully completed the preliminary design of the U.S. Navy's Free Electron Laser (FEL) weapon system, a key step toward building a FEL prototype for realistic tests at sea.

During the preliminary design review held March 9 to March 11 at a Boeing facility in Arlington, Va., the company presented its design to more than 30 U.S. government and National Laboratory representatives. This electric laser will operate by passing a beam of high-energy electrons through a series of powerful magnetic fields, generating an intense emission of laser light that can disable or destroy targets.

"The Free Electron Laser will use a ship's electrical power to create, in effect, unlimited ammunition and provide the ultra-precise, speed-of-light capability required to defend U.S. naval forces against emerging threats, such as hyper-velocity cruise missiles," said Gary Fitzmire, vice president and program director of Boeing Directed Energy Systems. "The successful completion of this preliminary design review is an important milestone in developing a weapon system that will transform naval warfare."

In April 2009, Boeing was awarded an Office of Naval Research contract valued at up to $163 million -- with an initial task order of $6.9 million -- to begin developing FEL. The Navy is expected to decide this summer whether to award additional task orders to Boeing to complete the FEL design and build and operate a laboratory demonstrator.

Boeing Missile Defense Systems' Directed Energy Systems unit in Albuquerque and the Boeing Research & Technology group in Seattle support the FEL program. The company has partnered with U.S. Department of Energy laboratories, academia and industry partners to design the laser.

Boeing is developing laser systems for a variety of defense applications. Besides FEL, these systems include the Airborne Laser, the High Energy Laser Technology Demonstrator, and Laser Avenger, among others.

A unit of The Boeing Company, Boeing Defense, Space & Security is one of the world's largest defense, space and security businesses specializing in innovative and capabilities-driven customer solutions, and the world's largest and most versatile manufacturer of military aircraft. Headquartered in St. Louis, Boeing Defense, Space & Security is a $34 billion business with 68,000 employees worldwide.

JHPSSL Program Receives Acclaimed Laureate Award From Editors of Aviation Week and Space Technology Magazine

JHPSSL Program Receives Acclaimed Laureate Award From Editors of Aviation Week and Space Technology Magazine
March 18, 2010

REDONDO BEACH, Calif. –– The Defense Department's Joint High Power Solid State Laser (JHPSSL) Phase 3, built by Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE:NOC), has been selected for the prestigious Laureate Award in the IT/Electronics category.

Aviation Week and Space Technology, the industry's premier news publication, bestowed the award at a black-tie event March 17, 2010 at
the Andrew Mellon Auditorium in Washington, D.C. Laureate awards recognize individuals and teams for their extraordinary accomplishments that embody the spirit of exploration, innovation and vision.

"This award is testament to our capabilities and performance in successfully transforming solid state lasers from a promising
technology to a robust capability with the proven attributes to enable application to the evolving security needs of our nation," said Dan Wildt, vice president of Directed Energy Systems at Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems.

"When the program began four years ago, few believed that solid-state lasers could produce a militarily significant 100kW beam.
Our JHPSSL team proved not only that it could be done, but that it could be done reliably and repeatedly through an innovative, power
scalable approach that has surpassed expectations and for which power limits have yet to be tested."

The JHPSSL team, led by program manager Jay Marmo, became the first to meet or exceed the requirements of a U.S. Defense Department
initiative to demonstrate a solid-state laser capable of producing 100 kilowatts of laser power over a sustained period while maintaining a tightly focused, highly concentrated light beam. This new capability supports self-defense missions from diverse threats such as rockets, artillery, mortar, swarming boats, unmanned aerial vehicles, aircraft and cruise missiles. Ultra-precision strike becomes practical from a variety of ground, sea or air-based platforms while minimizing the risk of collateral damage. Northrop Grumman has been the world's leading supplier of high-energy laser systems, subsystems and components for over 40 years.

The military customer for JHPSSL is the Office of the Secretary of Defense, High Energy Laser Joint Technology Office in Albuquerque,
N.M. Phase 3 was managed by the U.S. Army's Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Forces Strategic Command, Huntsville, Ala.
