Capacity crowd turns out to discuss $7 billion renewable energy contract request for proposals — Press Release

August 29, 2012 by · Comment
Filed under: Business Line, Companies, Events, logistics, Press Releases 

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Aug. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The U.S. Army and Corps of Engineers (USACE) achieved a milestone Aug. 22 when more than 600 interested attendees participated in the pre-proposal conference for the $7 billion Renewable and Alternative Energy Power Production for DoD Installations Multiple Award Task Order Contract (MATOC).

The Corps of Engineers, through its Engineering and Support Center, Huntsville, issued the MATOC Request for Proposal (RFP) Aug. 7 for $7 billion in total contract capacity to procure reliable, locally generated, renewable and alternative energy through power purchase agreements. The $7 billion capacity would be expended for the purchase of energy over a period of 30 years or less from renewable energy plants that are constructed and operated by contractors using private sector financing.

The solicitation is posted on the Federal Business Opportunities website at www.fbo.gov or http://go.usa.gov/Gd6. The solicitation closes Oct. 5.

The conference, hosted by the U.S. Army Energy Initiatives Task Force (EITF) and the Huntsville Center was held at the Bob Jones Auditorium on Redstone Arsenal. The conference provided representatives from industry with an overview of the MATOC RFP and USACE’s general procurement process and offered an opportunity for a questions and answers session. . All presentations, questions and answers will be posted as an amendment to the solicitation on the Federal Business Opportunities website. A video of the conference will be posted to the Army EITF website, www.armyeitf.com, and the Huntsville Center website, www.hnd.usace.army.mil. The conference places the Army one step closer to putting a contract vehicle in place that will help installations meet mandated energy goals.

Col. John Hamilton, Redstone Garrison commander, opened the conference by telling attendees the importance of renewable energy to energy security on Army installations. He cited the power outages in Huntsville following the April 2011 tornadoes as an example and discussed the challenges of improving energy security and sustainability while remaining cost conscious..

Col. Robert J. Ruch, the Huntsville Center commander, talked about the goals the U.S. Army, the EITF and the Huntsville Center hope to achieve with the RFP.

“This is a huge opportunity for the Army, and we’re glad you want to be part of it,” Ruch said.

“We are truly excited to be leading this effort that will help installations meet mandated energy reduction goals far into the future. Increasing energy security is a top priority for DoD and Army leadership, and this effort will lead to enhanced energy security and sustainability for our installations.”

This past April, the White House announced that the Defense Department was making one of the largest commitments to clean energy in history, by setting a goal to deploy three gigawatts of renewable energy – including solar, wind, biomass, or geothermal – on Army, Navy and Air Force installations by 2025. That is enough energy to power 750,000 homes. The Army’s goal is one gigawatt of that total. These goals support the broader DoD goal to enhance installation energy security and reduce installation energy costs.

“This MATOC is a key contracting vehicle that will be used to procure reliable, locally generated, renewable and alternative energy through establishing a pool of qualified firms and contractors with solar, wind, biomass and geothermal technologies to compete for individual Power Purchase Agreements,” Ruch said.

By awarding the contract, the Army will increase its agility by streamlining acquisition processes to develop large-scale renewable energy projects that use private sector financing. This approach will help speed overall project development timelines to ensure the best value to the Army and private sector.

Mr. John Lushetsky, the EITF’s executive director, spoke about the role of the EITF in helping the Army meet its renewable energy goals.

“To reach the Army’s goal of deploying 1 GW of renewable energy by 2025 will require a different way of doing business with the private sector. The issuance of the MATOC is a clear milestone for us and the significant interest we’ve seen from industry indicates that we are on the right path. The EITF has worked closely with the Huntsville Center to make the MATOC a streamlined and agile tool for the government to procure power from large scale renewable energy projects. We reviewed and responded to over 900 comments from industry to make this the best product possible. We think we accomplished our goal but ultimately the people in this room will tell us if we’ve got it right.

Attendees at the conference said the information was helpful and the partnering opportunities were important.

Kurt Adams, executive vice president and chief development officer for First Wind, Portland, Maine, said the explanation of how pricing would work was very beneficial since he has projects that range greatly in price per kilowatt hour.

Artis Brazee, vice president for operations, MCC Construction Corporation, said the opportunity to speak with the other conference attendees about possible partnerships was helpful.

“This is a unique effort and partnership with the EITF, USACE and other DoD agencies,” Lushetsky said. “We want to create processes and pipelines that will help ensure Army energy security, and ultimately, to make the Army the preferred partner with industry in developing large-scale renewable energy projects.”

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.

Raytheon to Construct Standard Missile Production Facility in Huntsville, Ala.
July 19, 2010

FARNBOROUGH, England, - Raytheon Company's (NYSE: RTN) Missile Systems business plans to build an all-up-round Standard Missile production facility in Huntsville, Ala. Raytheon intends to construct the state-of-the-art integration center on the U.S. Army's Redstone Arsenal site.

Raytheon will use the facility for final assembly and testing of Standard Missile-3 and Standard Missile-6. SM-3 production is expected to increase substantially in the next 10 years, and SM-6 production is expected to begin in 2010.

"Raytheon's SM-3 is the centerpiece of the nation's new missile defense strategy, and SM-6 will give the U.S. Navy a new, much-needed weapon system," said Dr. Taylor W. Lawrence, Raytheon Missile Systems president. "Combining SM-3 and SM-6 manufacturing into one facility will enable Raytheon to increase productivity and efficiency. The company will leverage state-of-the-art automation to enhance quality and safety and deliver lower-cost products to the Missile Defense Agency and U.S. Navy customers."

The 70,000-square-foot production facility will be constructed in two phases; each phase will be tied to SM-3 and SM-6 production contracts. Groundbreaking is expected later this year.

"This new Raytheon integration center means more jobs for Alabama and is a clear demonstration of Raytheon's strong partnership with the state," said Alabama Gov. Robert Riley. "Raytheon continues to be an important piece of Alabama's economic picture."

SM-3 is being developed as part of the Missile Defense Agency's sea-based Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense system. The missiles are deployed on U.S. Navy cruisers and destroyers and Japanese destroyers to defend against short- to intermediate-range ballistic missile threats in the ascent and midcourse phases of flight.

SM-6 is an extended range anti-air warfare missile. Fired from navy ships, SM-6 provides over-the-horizon capabilities against fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles and cruise missiles.

"The SM-3 is a vital component of our nation's missile defense strategy," said U.S. Sen. Richard Shelby. "I am proud of Alabama's continuing role in defending the U.S. and its allies."

Boeing Accepts Delivery of Key Component for US Army’s High Energy Laser Technology Demonstrator

Boeing Accepts Delivery of Key Component for US Army's High Energy Laser Technology Demonstrator
June 25, 2010

PITTSBURGH, - The Boeing Company [NYSE: BA] on June 24 took delivery of the beam director assembly for the U.S. Army's High Energy Laser Technology Demonstrator (HEL TD) program, moving the system another step closer to its 2011 testing schedule.

Integrated Optical Systems Brashear, a division of L-3 Communications, delivered the component in Pittsburgh for transport to Boeing's facility in Albuquerque, N.M., where it will be mated to the remaining beam control system hardware. Once assembled, the laser system will be integrated with an Oshkosh Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Truck (HEMTT) in Huntsville, Ala.

The beam control system will acquire, track and select an aimpoint on a target during the same time frame in which the system also will receive the laser beam from HEL TD's laser device, reshape and align it, and focus it on the target. The system includes mirrors, high-speed processors and high-speed optical sensors.

"Watching this revolutionary capability come together through the efforts of Boeing employees and partners working with our U.S. Army customer reinforces how real -- and how close -- this technology is to being ready to support warfighters," said Blaine Beardsley, Boeing HEL TD program manager.

The transformational, solid-state laser weapon system will provide speed-of-light, ultra-precision capability that will dramatically improve warfighters' ability to counter rocket, artillery and mortar projectiles.

"We're confident in our ability to begin testing at White Sands Missile Range early next year against real targets," said Mike Rinn, vice president of Boeing Directed Energy Systems. "Using a low-power surrogate for the high-energy laser, we will demonstrate the transformational capability of this system and its potential for the battlefield."

These low-power tests will demonstrate the HEL TD system's ability to acquire, track and target moving projectiles. The HEMTT will later be equipped with a high-energy laser that can destroy those targets.

Boeing is developing laser systems for a variety of U.S. Air Force, Army and Navy applications. Besides HEL TD, these systems include the Free Electron Laser, the Tactical Relay Mirror System, and the latest Compact 3-D Imaging Camera.

Northrop Grumman’s Viper Strike Being Added to KC-130J Arsenal

Northrop Grumman's Viper Strike Being Added to KC-130J Arsenal
June 2, 2010

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – The U.S. Marine Corps Harvest Hawk aircraft will soon be equipped with Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE:NOC)-built Viper Strike stand-off precision guided munition as part of an effort under way to bring greater utility to the Marines' KC-130J refueling and cargo aircraft.

Under the terms of the contract, Northrop Grumman will deliver 65 Viper Strike munitions beginning this year to the Joint Attack Munition Systems Project Office within the Program Executive Office Missiles and Space at Redstone Arsenal for eventual integration onto the KC-130J platform.

Viper Strike is a gliding munition capable of precision attack from extended stand-off ranges using GPS-aided navigation and a semi-active laser seeker. Its small size, precision and high agility provide a very low collateral damage weapon that can be used in the difficult operational environments where U.S. troops may be deployed.

"In today's irregular warfare environment, Viper Strike provides the right characteristics needed to support our warfighters in the current fight ─ high precision and agility to hit targets in complex terrain and with very low collateral damage," said Steve Considine, programs director, Aviation and Weapons for Northrop Grumman's Land and Self-Protection Systems Division. "The KC-103J represents the latest military airborne asset to be equipped with Viper Strike's formidable capabilities."

Viper Strike munitions are produced at the company's Huntsville, Ala., facility.
