CV-90 Armadillo Begin Field Evaluations in Denmark

Joint Strike Fighter Update – Training and FMS

As the Pentagon and Lockheed Martin (LMT) continue to negotiate the latest production buy for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) the program continues its path towards completing development, testing and begin fielding. With the recent, unexpected change in leadership for Lockheed one of the issues that has come up is the focus on the JSF program. On Tuesday the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics (OSD(AT&L)), Mr. Frank Kendall, made clear that the company needs to concentrate on continued delivery of the aircraft and not worry about its short term business goals.

The program overall continues to make progress in different areas including completion of the Operational Utility Evaluation of pilot training Thursday. This means that the data collected through the process of teaching 4 pilots over the last six weeks will be reviewed by the Air Force Training Command (AFTC) eventually leading to approval of the program allowing formal training to begin.

In related matters a group of Royal Air Force and Royal Navy maintainers continue their training at Eglin AFB now supported by 2 British owned aircraft. The U.K. is one of the major overseas partners in the F-35 program and will also begin instructor pilot training this month.

In other Foreign Military Sales (FMS) related F-35 news both Japan and Denmark agreed to have companies there begin making components for the aircraft. As part of the overall program many of the other nations buying the fighter will contribute components from their domestic suppliers. In Japan up to 40% of their version of the aircraft will be produced domestically. Northrop Grumman (NOC), who produces fuselage and other assemblies for Lockheed, signed an agreement with a Danish composite manufacturer to provide items like doors, panels and skin assemblies. This is a follow on agreement to one signed in 2007.

The F-35 remains the most expensive acquisition program in history and a key part of U.S. modernization plans. Despite its struggles with schedule, testing and cost it continues to see investment in it by the U.S. and its partners. While there may be near term haggling about the price it is expected that the next production batch will be on order by the end of the year. As more aircraft are delivered training will continue to increase in amount and complexity.

U.S. Army Buys Danish Mine Clearance Vehicles from Hydrema

The U.S. acquisition rules actually encourage the armed services to look for existing equipment to meet their needs even if it is made by a non-American company. The idea is to more rapidly meet a requirement. Often though it is hard for a non-American piece of equipment to make it into service as their is a desire by Congress and U.S. industry to have equipment made at home. For some specialized equipment it is easier for the U.S. to buy it rather then develop and produce it.

One recent case is the decision by the U.S. Army to buy Hydrema’s mine clearance vehicles. Hydrema is a Danish heavy equipment manufacturer who operate a U.S. subsidiary, Hydrema U.S. Inc. The contract to provide the vehicles, support and training is worth over $160 million.

Hydrema has been making these type of vehicles since 1996 for the Danish as well as some international customers. The U.S. Air Force has also bought the system.

The primary threat in Afghanistan as it was in Iraq is the mine and Improvised Explosive Device (IED) targeting U.S. military vehicles. One of the basic counters to these is to sweep large areas at one time. Mechanical systems like Hydrema produces have the ability to clear quickly land that may be mined. They utilize a flail similar to those that have been in service since World War II.

The U.S. military must respond to the threat in a variety of ways and this type of equipment is just one way to counter IED’s and mines.

Poland Awards Contract to Terma to Upgrade Helicopters

Defense contractors were hoping that the new NATO countries from Eastern Europe will offer a significant, new market. The former Warsaw Pact nations need to improve their equipment to meet the standards of the Western alliance. Some contracts have been awarded and more are pending, but with their economies hurt by the global downturn there has not been the purchases expected. Poland announced that they are awarding Terma, the Danish aerospace company, a contract to provide self protection equipment for twenty-two of their helicopters.

The contract is worth over $100 million and will place sensors and flare and chaff launching equipment on the Polish aircraft. Illustrating one of the issues with integrating their existing equipment into NATO is that Terma will modify Mi-17 transport and Mi-24 attack helicopters previously provided by the Soviet Union.

Terma has made and installed such equipment on a variety of platforms in use by the military of several different countries. This is their first order to be provided to the former Warsaw Pact nations.

Danish Aerotech’s Deal With Boeing Starts Paying Dividends

Last year Boeing signed an agreement to work with Danish Aerotech A/S on joint military deals. One reason was the hope that Denmark will invest in F/A-18 aircraft to replace their F-16 force. The country is looking at different aircraft including the SAAB Grypen for this mission. Now Boeing has awarded them a contract to build support assemblies for the launchers that go on ships to fire Harpoon Anti-surface missiles. While a small contract valued at around $1.5 million it helps the companies start working together on projects. Hopefully for Danish Aerotech Boeing will be able to use them to do support and modification of their aircraft.

Sikorsky Aircraft and Terma Sign MOU to Explore Potential Collaboration on Danish Maritime Helicopter Program Opportunity — Press Release

Sikorsky Aircraft and Terma Sign MOU to Explore Potential Collaboration on Danish Maritime Helicopter Program Opportunity

STRATFORD, Conn., Feb. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. and Terma A/S today announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding to explore potential collaborations if the Danish government decides to procure Sikorsky MH-60R SEAHAWK® helicopters. The government is currently evaluating alternatives including the MH-60R aircraft for a replacement maritime helicopter. The MH-60R aircraft would be procured via the Foreign Military Sale (FMS) channel with the U.S. government and supported by Sikorsky, a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX) . Terma A/S is a leading defense, aerospace and security company in Denmark with subsidiaries in the U.S., the Netherlands, Singapore and Germany.

“We see potentially strong synergies between our companies and the combined support they could bring to the Danish Maritime Helicopter Program,” said Leonard Wengler, Vice President, Navy Programs for Sikorsky. “The MH-60R helicopter, dubbed the ‘Romeo,’ is the most advanced multi-mission naval helicopter available today with demonstrated effectiveness during deployment with the U.S. Navy in 2009. Terma’s aerospace experience and expertise, including the production of advanced aerostructures and electronic warfare equipment, provide promising opportunities for collaboration.”

“We identify a substantial match between the two companies and are happy and proud to announce the signing of an MOU,” said Jorn Henrik Levy Rasmussen, Vice President, Strategic Marketing, Terma. “We look forward to combining Sikorsky’s and our core capabilities in respect of the maritime helicopter program and to investigating a shared number of exciting business opportunities in the international market.”

The multi-mission MH-60R helicopter is built by Sikorsky, with Lockheed Martin providing mission systems integration, and is designed to perform anti-submarine and surface warfare, search and rescue operations, vertical replenishment, medical evacuation, communications and data relay. The U.S. Navy plans to purchase a total of 300 MH-60R helicopters, and in July 2009 completed a highly successful six-month deployment of an MH-60R squadron with the U.S.S. John C. Stennis carrier strike group in the western Pacific.

Sikorsky Aircraft Corp., based in Stratford, Conn., is a world leader in helicopter design, manufacture and service. United Technologies Corp., based in Hartford, Conn., provides a broad range of high technology products and support services to the aerospace and building systems industries.

Headquartered in Aarhus, Denmark, Terma provides products and systems for a number of defense and non-defense applications, including command and control systems, radar systems, electronic warfare systems, space technology, and aeronautic structures for high-performance military aircraft. The company realized 2008/09 sales of approximately USD 200 million and employs approximately 1,250 people worldwide.
