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.

BAE Systems Celebrates One Millionth Hard Body Armor Insert Milestone

PHOENIX--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BAE Systems has completed the production of more than one million hard armor inserts under Department of Defense (DoD) contracts primarily in support of the U.S. Army, the U.S. Marine Corps and the Defense Logistics Agency. A ceremony to commemorate this milestone was held today at BAE Systems’ Protection Systems business in Phoenix, Arizona where the inserts are manufactured. “A hard armor insert helps protect a warfighter’s vital organs and has been proven as a critic

Gas Prices Will Affect U.S. Military Operations Eventually

The U.S. military is currently involved in Iraq, Afghanistan and now what looks to be like Libya. They are also deployed in the Pacific and Europe which includes ships and aircraft on patrol. They also conduct large amounts of training in the U.S. and elsewhere. As such they are one of the biggest consumers of petroleum products (POL) in the world. This fuel is managed and provided through the Defense Logistics Agency’s (DLA) Energy Support Center (DESC) group.

As the price of oil and gasoline increases as it has over the last six months it will eventually begin to affect the ability of the U.S. to pay for and conduct its missions. DLA is able to lock in at certain prices as they award long term contracts but as these expire and new ones are issued the price effect will slowly appear. This means that more funds must be expended on fuel then originally planned and budgeted for at the beginning of the Fiscal Year. In the current budget structure where the Department is operating under Continuing Resolution and without a 2011 budget it also limits funding to 2010 levels which also may reduce the amount of money available to buy fuel.

The DLA issues hundreds of contracts each year for fuel. An example is one that was signed last week with the South Alabama Regional Airport Authority to provide fuel to support Army helicopter training at FT Rucker. This is worth about $11 million. If there end up being limits on how much funding may be spent on these types of contracts then it may affect training hours and flight time which slows the ability of the Army to produce new aviators who fill a critical need on the battlefield.

The U.S. military has also begun investing heavily in research to develop non-oil based fuel. These include the use of biofuels for aircraft power generated from plants or algae. The Air Force and Navy have both flown aircraft powered by such fuel even though there are some who feel the investment is not cost effective right now.

DoD is also investing in solar power and fuel cell technology to provide battlefield power beyond gasoline powered generators or from vehicles.

Even if in the short term it is more expensive it makes sense not only from an economic point-of-view but also logistically to try and reduce the amount of POL that is moved around via truck and aircraft.

Right now the price of oil seems to be going up due to pressures from unrest in the Middle East and North Africa. Eventually most likely sooner then later these increases will begin to affect the U.S. military. Either operational will need to be curtailed or money will have to be moved to buy POL at the cost of other programs or budget priorities.

2,000th U.S. Army Vehicle Refurbished In-Theater by Oshkosh Defense — Press Release

2,000th U.S. Army Vehicle Refurbished In-Theater by Oshkosh Defense

TPER Program Restores Worn, Battle-Damaged Vehicles Faster, More Economically

OSHKOSH, Wis. (Jan. 25, 2011) — Oshkosh Defense, a division of Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK), commemorated its refurbishment of the 2,000th U.S. Army vehicle in the Theater-Provided Equipment Refurbishment (TPER) program. Oshkosh collaborates with the U.S. military on the TPER program, which eliminates the cost of shipping vehicles to the U.S. for repairs and returns the trucks to soldiers stationed in-theater more quickly.

“Many of the heavy and line-haul trucks that come to this facility have seen almost a decade of rugged, in-theater use,” said Mike Ivy, vice president and general manager of Army Programs for Oshkosh Defense. “The TPER program allows us to significantly reduce the cost of refurbishing the Army’s vehicles, and cuts maintenance cycle time by at least 60 days compared to U.S.-based repairs – more quickly getting the trucks back out where they are needed. The 2,000th truck that we’re delivering to the Army today represents the success of this program and our combined commitment to supporting Soldiers as close to point of use as possible.”

Oshkosh executives and Army officials gathered at Oshkosh’s Defense Logistics Center in Kuwait to celebrate the milestone and pay tribute to Oshkosh employees, as well as the U.S. Army staff, who support the TPER program. An Oshkosh Heavy Equipment Transporter (HET), part of the Army’s Family of Heavy Tactical Vehicles (FHTV), was the 2,000th refurbished vehicle.

The TPER program restores battle-damaged and heavily worn vehicles from the Army’s FHTV and line-haul fleets to the military’s strict equipment-readiness standards so they can be returned to the field. The military departments involved in the TPER program include TACOM Life Cycle Management Command (LCMC), the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), and the Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA).

The DCMA and Oshkosh’s quality-assurance offices work together to ensure vehicles are restored to full mission-capable operability. The Kuwait facility sees as many as 60-65 vehicles a month that need anywhere from 300-1,000 replacement parts. To meet these requirements, Oshkosh collaborates extensively with TACOM and DLA to maintain a multifaceted supply-chain management approach.

Oshkosh Defense provides aftermarket service and support with a full life-cycle approach. The company has led customer service projects at more than 100 locations globally, including in-theater. These efforts, along with factory-trained field service representatives (FSRs) and Web-based parts support ensure customers can access service, repair and parts distribution in every corner of the globe, at any time of day. More than 700 Oshkosh service personnel are currently deployed across the U.S. and abroad, including more than 280 FSRs in Afghanistan.

Oshkosh to Refurbish Heavy Vehicles in Theater for the U.S. Army — Press Release

Oshkosh to Refurbish Heavy Vehicles in Theater for the U.S. Army

OSHKOSH, Wis. (Dec. 2, 2010) — Oshkosh Defense, a division of Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK), will refurbish an additional 140 vehicles and trailers in theater for the U.S. Army under a new order from the Army TACOM Life Cycle Management Command (LCMC). Through the Theater-Provided Equipment Refurbishment (TPER) program, Oshkosh works with the Army to return battle-damaged vehicles to full mission-capable operability at the company’s Kuwait facility.

“Our in-theater refurbishment service reduces the maintenance cycle time by weeks and gets these vehicles back where they’re needed most, in the field with the Warfighters,” said Mike Ivy, vice president and general manager of Army Programs for Oshkosh Defense. “To date, we have refurbished nearly 1,500 heavy vehicles and trailers for the Army at our Kuwait facility.”

The TPER program was born out of an urgent requirement to repair tactical vehicles worn from extreme conditions and return them to the field. Oshkosh works with the military to ensure vehicles are restored to meet the military’s strict equipment-readiness standards before they return to operations in theater. Oshkosh also communicates and collaborates extensively with TACOM and the Defense Logistics Agency to maintain a multifaceted supply-chain management approach.

Oshkosh will refurbish its Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Trucks(HEMTT) and Heavy Equipment Transporters (HET A1) under the order. The vehicles are a part of the Army’s Family of Heavy Tactical Vehicles (FHTV), which also includes the Oshkosh-produced Palletized Load System (PLS). Oshkosh also will refurbish M1000 HET Trailers, which were not originally produced by the company.

The vehicles and trailers being refurbished were operating in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. The order extends Oshkosh’s TPER work until May 2011 and is valued at more than $11 million.

Raytheon Awarded $115 Million for Airborne Low Frequency Sonar — Press Release

Raytheon Awarded $115 Million for Airborne Low Frequency Sonar

TEWKSBURY, Mass., Oct. 12, 2010 /PRNewswire/ — Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) has received two contracts totaling $115.7 million for the AN/AQS-22 Airborne Low Frequency Sonar (ALFS), the primary undersea warfare sensor for the U.S. Navy’s MH-60R multimission helicopter. The contracts were awarded by Naval Air Systems Command and Defense Logistics Agency Aviation Strategic Acquisition.

ALFS provides critical undersea warfare mission support capabilities, including submarine detection, tracking, localization, classification, acoustic intercept, underwater communication and environmental data collection.

Under the first contract, valued at $59.7 million, Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems will manufacture, integrate, test and deliver ALFS systems. The company will also provide data and weapons replaceable assemblies for systems under test as well as helicopter maintenance trainer assets.

The system’s performance and capabilities were tested and proved during two recent U.S. Navy undersea warfare exercises. The first was conducted by the John C. Stennis Carrier Strike Group in the Western Pacific Ocean. ALFS was deployed as the primary anti-submarine warfare sensor onboard the MH-60R helicopter, charged with defending the surface ships before the submarines could come within range to launch an attack. According to Navy officials, the carrier strike group successfully detected all exercise submarines during the first deployment. The second exercise is currently underway with the Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group.

Raytheon Company, with 2009 sales of $25 billion, is a technology and innovation leader specializing in defense, homeland security and other government markets throughout the world.

U.S. Contracting Goals In Afghanistan Raising Favoritism Concerns

The U.S. government is spending a great deal of money in Afghanistan for commercial services and logistic support. This is necessary due to the limited size of the U.S. military and of its NATO allies as well as the land locked and mountainous nature of the country but concerns have arisen with how the money is being spent.

One reason is that the U.S. has a plan to spend as much money as possible on domestic companies and providers so that they will help build a sustainable Afghan economy. This is one of the keys to making that country functional without a massive U.S. and allied presence and the United States is willing to leverage its contracting policies to help support this effort.

One company that is feeling the negative effect of this policy and is not happy about it is Infrastructure Defense Technologies (IDT) from Illinois. They manufacture among other products special earth filled barriers used to provide perimeter defense at bases from direct fire as well as explosive attack. In 2008 they bid on a contract to provide this kind of product for use in Iraq and Afghanistan potentially worth up to $400 million. The contract did not go to them but a foreign company. IDT has protested this award twice now.

IDT feels that despite there better product they were slighted due to the Pentagon’s desire to have this material made in Afghanistan and Iraq as part of their plan to build up the economy. IDT lost a lawsuit with the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) on the grounds that the British company chosen, Hesco Bastion, could fulfill the needs of the contract. This is one of the main reasons used to justify sole source awards no matter what the cost — the supplier is the only one who can provide a technically compliant product in the amount of time required. Often these contracts end up costing more then if they were competitively bid and awarded.

Sometimes the desire to contract efficiently and ethically may not be supported by other policies or needs. In Afghanistan it seems that the hope of spending large amount of U.S. tax dollars in the local economy will support the mission of building and effective government and economy. Even if this plan hurts U.S. businesses and doesn’t get the most bang for the buck.

Sirit to Supply Parts for DoD RFID Labels

The U.S. Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) awarded Sirit a contract to provide inlays that will be incorporated into Radio Frequency Identification Device (RFID) labels. The contract is worth almost $3 million. Sirit is a unit of Federal Signal Technologies.

The DLA uses RFID like many industries to track shipments and packages as they move through the supply system. The DLA purchases many of the basic products used by the U.S. military in Afghanistan and Iraq. The proper tracking aids the delivery of key parts and supplies to the units that need them.

Despite Research Into Alternative Fuels Defense Department Still Buys Good Old Gas

The United States Defense Department has begun several different projects to look at alternative fuels. These include efforts to develop algae and biofuel sources such as grass and grains. These are an obvious long term investment into a time when petroleum based power may be limited. At the same time it still consumes millions of gallons of aviation, diesel and gasoline to power aircraft, vehicles and ships. Because of this it was announced yesterday that several refiners were awarded contracts to provide gasoline and aviation fuel.

Valero (VLO) won a contract worth about $255 million and Tesoro (TSO) one worth close to $45 million. AGE Refining was also given a contract worth $84 million.

The Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) often makes multiple awards such as these as they use local refiners to support different units and facilities across the U.S. Despite the efforts to find alternative sources of energy petroleum based fuel will remain the main power source for several more years to come.
