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.

General Dynamics’ Small Caliber Ammunition Program Manufactures One Billion Rounds For U.S. Army

Dynamics (NYSE: GD), has achieved a significant milestone in producing one billion rounds of ammunition in support of the U.S. Army’s Second Source Small Caliber Ammunition program.

General Dynamics was awarded a five-year contract by the Army in August 2005 to produce various types of 5.56mm, 7.62mm and .50 caliber ammunition. The contract established General Dynamics as a second-source prime contractor overseeing a consortium of worldwide small-caliber ammunition producers.

Managed by the U.S. Army Project Manager – Maneuver Ammunition Systems, the Small Caliber Second Source program was established to address the critical demand for small-caliber ammunition during Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom.

“This is a significant milestone for General Dynamics and our U.S. Army customer. The Small Caliber Second Source program served a vital role in meeting the urgent needs of our warfighters, and it continues to enable the combat readiness of our U.S. Armed Forces,” said Steve Torma, vice president of small-
caliber ammunition.

House Armed Services Committee: Skelton Applauds Success in Afghanistan Under Obama

House Armed Services Committee: Skelton Applauds Success in Afghanistan Under Obama
Ike Skelton, Chairman
May 5, 2010

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Today, House Armed Services Committee Chairman Ike Skelton (D-Mo.) released the statement below following a hearing before the Committee to examine the progress in Afghanistan under President Obama’s new strategy:

“I am so proud of the brave men and women in uniform who are risking their lives every day to keep our nation safe, and I was very pleased to hear the witnesses at today’s hearing talk about the signs of success we have seen from our warfighters in Afghanistan under President Obama. For too many years, this conflict—which is critical to our nation’s security—was the Forgotten War. It was very reassuring today to hear confirmation of the continued progress we are seeing under the President’s new counterinsurgency strategy as we continue to fix the dramatic shortfalls of the previous administration.

“President Obama has tripled the number of U.S. forces in Afghanistan and has given us, for the first time since the start of the war nearly a decade ago, a real strategy for success. Our military leaders and commanders on the ground have strongly endorsed the President’s plan, and we continue to see an increase in gains made against the insurgency, including the most significant captures to date of Taliban leaders.

“We will continue to closely monitor the progress in Afghanistan under the new counterinsurgency strategy to make sure that our troops have all of the resources they need to bring us success and return home quickly.”

Good Summary Of The KC-X Situation

The Kansas City Star has this lengthy article that describes the whole situation and explains how we got where we are with the KC-X tanker RFP. The article by Cleon Rickle may be found here. Key takeaways are:

“”I am confident Boeing can build the best plane for the Air Force, no matter the competition,” said U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts,of Kansas. “However, I urge the Department of Defense to run a fair competition and avoid coddling EADS to the detriment of American warfighters who have waited eight years for this contest to end and decades for a new tanker.”

“We will offer a modern, more capable tanker in response to the Defense Department’s decision to encourage competition for this major taxpayer investment,” said EADS North America chairman Ralph Crosby, Jr. “Our KC-45 is the only real, flying, low-risk solution that today meets the demanding Air Force air refueling requirements and is actually in production now. ”

DOD News Briefing with Geoff Morrell on the KC-X Tanker from the Pentagon

DOD News Briefing with Geoff Morrell on the KC-X Tanker from the Pentagon
March 31, 2010

MR. MORRELL: Sorry to keep you waiting. Good evening. Thanks for coming at this late hour.

I have a short announcement on the KC-X competition.

As you know, late last month the department announced the final KC-X request for proposal, unveiled the Air Force requirements for the replacement tanker and set May 10th as the deadline for bids to be submitted. Deputy Secretary Bill Lynn made it clear then that we are committed to a fair, open and transparent competition in order to get the best airplane to our warfighters at the best value to the taxpayers.

Recently the European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company indicated a possible interest in competing and asked for some time -- some more time, that is -- to prepare a bid. This afternoon the Defense Department informed both EADS and Boeing that if we receive formal notification from EADS of their intention to make an offer, we will extend the deadline for bids from May the 10th to July 9th. That would provide both EADS and Boeing with another 60 days to submit their proposals. It is not uncommon to grant reasonable extensions in competitions of this sort, and we consider 60 days to be reasonable in this case.

Given that this plane is long overdue and we want -- and we do not want its delivery date to slip any later than it already has, we are prepared to compress our bid evaluation period to stay as close to the original award schedule as possible, so as to still award the contract early this fall.

No one should confuse our willingness to extend the bid deadline with willingness to change any of the plane's military requirements or the way bids will be evaluated.

Finally, there are those who have suggested that politics, both local and international, have somehow influenced this process. Nothing could be further from the truth. We have been and continue to make decisions on this critical program based solely on the law of the land and the needs of our warfighters. To that end, as the deputy secretary said last month, we will continue to play this straight down the middle.

Thanks for your time this evening. Appreciate it.

Q Question?

MR. MORRELL: I'll take one or two. What's up, Tony?

Q Sean O'Keefe met with you today -- the Pentagon. What are some of the reasons they needed the 60-day extension for? Was it to get a partner to review the briefing materials Northrop had access to? Just, can you give some clarity to that?

MR. MORRELL: I don't think it's appropriate for me to speak to the needs they expressed to us. You're certainly capable of calling up the company yourself and asking them if they wish to disclose that information. One of the reasons I'm not comfortable doing so is that many of the issues that were discussed involve proprietary information, so it would be inappropriate for me to discuss it from the podium, or anywhere else, for that matter.

Q Do you get a -- did you get an -- did you get an indication, though, that they are seriously interested in bidding this program or would bid if the extension was granted?

MR. MORRELL: I don't think we would be having the conversations that we have been having unless they were seriously considering a bid.

Yeah, Amy.

Q You said if you received formal notification. Do you know what the last -- the long pole in the tent is to get the formal notification?

MR. MORRELL: No, you'd have to ask them. I mean, they've made it clear, I think, in reading some of your press accounts of the current situation, that they intend to make this decision in the next couple of weeks. That seems like a reasonable period of time to us. And if we were to receive that formal notification, we would then go ahead and extend the deadline for bids by 60 days, as we discussed.

Yeah, Roxanna.

Q Did you get a sense from EADS, from your discussions, that 60 days would be enough for them to bid? I know they asked for 90 days, essentially, and you said 60 days is reasonable. Do you get the sense that it's somewhere in the middle and they would be able to compete?

MR. MORRELL: I think they are the best people to speak to that. I mean, obviously, they have asked for 90 days. We think that 60 days is a reasonable amount of time, given the needs that were expressed to us; balanced, also, against our desire to move on with this as quickly as possible and try to maintain as closely as we can the original award schedule. And as I mentioned, we are willing to compress our evaluation time so as to still award this contract in the early fall.

Yeah.

Q With the significance of this competition, you're – by compressing the time. How do you plan to do that? Do you plan to bring extra people in to read it?

And yesterday, General Schwartz said 60 days really -- or an extension of 60 up to 90 days -- really won't matter for IOC [initial operating capability]. Why compress it at all?

MR. MORRELL: We want to maintain the schedule as best we can. This program is long overdue. The replacement tanker is a critical need for our warfighters. And we believe that we can compress the evaluation period somewhat in order to maintain pretty closely to the original award schedule. And if we can do it, we want to do it, and so that's our intention.

Okay, last one. Jen.

Q To what extent is the -- you know, getting the award in by September, and before the November elections, important?

MR. MORRELL: Politics are not a part of this process -- never have been, never will be. As I mentioned in my opening statement, we are basing this strictly on the needs of the warfighter, the law of the land, and our desire to make sure the taxpayer gets their money's worth.

Thanks.

Q Geoff, this is --

MR. MORRELL: Thank you.

Q You said 90 earlier. Is there a reason why you went down to 60?

(No audible response.)
