The Finnish Defence Forces place a 1,3 M€ order with Kenno Tech for additional Balpro® Protector systems and Balpro® Containers — Press Release

DSC00490 - raj - lKenno Tech received a new order of close to 1,3 M€ for Balpro® Protector systems and Balpro® Containers from the Finnish Defence Forces (FDF). The FDF exercised some of the purchase options, which are included in its February 2012 purchase decision for
these products. The deliveries will start this year and continue into 2014.

The Balpro® Protector system is a fast-to-build modular fortification system designed for expeditionary forces. The system may be used for many applications including:

• Camp walls/perimeter walls: one Balpro® Protector system set provides 42 metres of 2,44 metre high defence wall for perimeter security.
Elements equipped with doors may be included.
• Protected shelters or bunkers: a fully enclosed shelter with internal measurements of 5 x 6 metres and a height of 2,44 metres can be
assembled from one Balpro® Protector system set.
• Observation points with watch towers.
• Garage/storage facilities, bays, revetments etc.
• Safe corridors for e.g. VIPs.
• The elements may also be used as flood barriers.

For transport a Balpro® Protector system set of 7 laser-welded sandwich steel elements forms a 20 ft sea container equivalent unit. The newest functionality in the system is a watch tower (see pictures in our website photo gallery http://www.kennoshield.
com/sirpalesuoja/index.php?k=15218) and currently a drive-through gate is being developed. For more about the Balpro® Protector system also see

http://www.kenno-shield.com/sirpalesuoja/index.php?k=15240.

The Balpro® Container is a ballistically protected container designed to keep personnel or equipment safe from small calibre threats.
The Balpro® products’ innovative solutions ensure uniform protection capabilities throughout the surface area of the product elements.

Kenno Tech specializes in the design and manufacture of laser welded steel sandwich elements. The company’s production facilities are at Riihimäki, Finland.

3SDL introduces T3dE3 at DSEI — Press Release

Whitepaper advises show visitors how to ‘Deliver Effect and Control Risk’

14th August 2013: Malvern based defence and security acquisition and procurement specialist, 3SDL, will be introducing its latest whitepaper ‘How can you control risk when buying new technology?’ which outlines comprehensive service offering ‘T3dE3′ on stand S10-465 at DSEI 2013.

The paper was produced to introduce procurement managers to 3SDL’s approach to minimising the risks involved in buying new technologies used in all areas of defence and security operations. The concept ‘T3dE3’ is a shortened acronym derived from the first letters of the main services 3SDL offers to combat risk – Trials, Testing, Training, Exercises, Experimentation, Evaluation and Demonstration.

Utilising some, or all, of these service areas can mean the difference between successfully procuring technology which is fit for purpose, or wasting significant amounts of (often public) money – as 3SDL Managing Director, Matt May, explains, “Procurement managers need to be absolutely certain that the equipment or services they buy will meet their organisation’s objectives. Acquiring new products and services in this field can be extremely costly – not only in monetary terms, but also in human terms. Wrong decisions can mean the difference between life and death.”

Trials, Testing, Exercises and Demonstration

Before any orders can be placed, the person tasked with procurement needs to understand what options are available in the marketplace. This initial research can be extremely time-consuming – which is where working with an independent procurement specialist like 3SDL comes into its own.

3SDL’s expertise cuts through sales pitches to evaluate the claims made by the manufacturer/service provider by testing performance in a real-world scenario. This approach also brings significant benefits to suppliers – after-all, independent testimony that their product/service actually does what they say it will do is the best sales tool available!

Evaluation

Once the initial testing and trials period has been successfully completed, the findings need to be effectively evaluated and presented to support the procurement manager’s business case. This stage of the process is vital in ensuring all stakeholders are on board with the decision – it also offers an opportunity to identify any issues which may not have been obvious in the initial test, trials, exercises and demonstration stage.

Training

Initial and ongoing training are incredibly important if organisations are to maximise the effectiveness of the new technology/service purchased and minimise the risk that it might not be used to its fullest potential.

All of the above obviously come at a cost, but 3SDL is adamant that this cost should be built into the budget from the very beginning to control the risk of incurring additional spend down the line.

Matt May continues, “Trying to cut costs in procurement is a sure fire way of increasing spend in the long term. Implementing strategic activities at the outset of the project, and investing in staff training throughout the life-cycle of the technology, can protect organisations against costly mistakes. This is particularly important in the public sector where every penny must be accounted for, especially against the backdrop of the current financial climate.”

3SDL has experienced phenomenal growth over the past 12 months thanks to an increase in opportunities from within the UK as the MoD looks to outsource more projects to private companies, as well as securing a significant number of international contracts. Current clients include the UK MoD, the Finnish Navy, the Swiss Army and Air Force, US NAVAIR and the Defence Systems Innovation Centre in Australia.

Established in 2005, this innovative company has seen turnover increase every year and was recently named as one of the Accelerate 250 – a business community made up of the 250 fastest growing companies in the UK.

Visit www.3sdl.com to find out how your organisation can use T3dE3 to deliver effect and control risk.

3SDL supports Finnish Navy with Sea Acceptance Testing — Press Release

C 2013 Finnish Defence Forces. Photo by Esko KoskinenLink 16, 22 and JREAP tested at sea onboard an operational warship

20th February 2013: As part of its ongoing support contract to Navy Command Finland, Malvern based defence and security specialist, 3SDL, is delighted to announce that it has provided technical support to the Finnish Navy during the recent week long Sea Acceptance Testing onboard the 1,450 ton Minelayer FNS Uusimaa.

The complex series of tests involving Link 22, MIDS/Link 16 and JREAP took place in the Finnish Archipelago and Northern Baltic Sea comprising several national sea, air and land platforms.

The Finnish Ministry of Defence (MoD) is acquiring a Multi-Link Tactical Data Link (TDL) solution for the Navy, allowing it to exploit the interoperability benefits offered by fully integrating Link 22, MIDS/Link 16 and JREAP.

This capability is being delivered by the procurement and integration of a Multi-Link Data Link Processor (M-DLP FN) system into the majority of combat ships in the Finnish Navy. The M-DLP FN system also includes a Data Forwarding capability.

3SDL has been supporting Navy Command Finland since 2010 on the procurement and test of the new M-DLP FN System supplied by SELEX ES. Tom Vart, Senior Consultant at 3SDL, said, “The Sea Acceptance Testing provided an invaluable opportunity to test Link 16, 22 and JREAP, both CIU and Data Forwarding, in a ‘real’ scenario at sea onboard an operational warship. 3SDL was extremely pleased to be involved in these vital trials.”

Robonic Ltd Oy has successfully demonstrated the high speed launch of representative unmanned air systems — Press Release

Robonic Ltd Oy has successfully demonstrated the high speed launch of representative unmanned air systems

Tampere, Finland, 11 May 2011.
Robonic Ltd Oy has successfully demonstrated the high speed launch of representative unmanned air systems in the 100 kg range at speeds of 70 meters per second. The demonstration launches, conducted in February 2011, are part of a continuing company program to expand the capability envelope of the Robonic pneumatic launcher family to meet the needs of new generation UAS and target drones. “We are committed to ensuring our launchers remain the solution of choice as market requirements evolve,” says Robonic Managing Director Juha Moisio.

Existing production Robonic launchers currently provide launch speeds of up to 55 meters per second for air vehicles in the 250kg maximum takeoff mass category and to approximately 38 meters per second in the 500kg range.

“Our research and development program is helping pave the way for the next generation of lightweight unmanned air systems and target drones,” says Moisio. Existing industry trends in UAS and target drone design are seeing a continued reduction in aircraft mass as well as increased endurance.

The potential for very high speed launch of lightweight UAS and target drones will directly support the continued opening up of a new market space for smaller and lower cost systems. Launch speeds in the range of 70 m/s per second will be essential to achieving the viability of this
notional new generation.

The achievement of 70 meters per second launch speeds will also provide new flexibility for existing UAS and target drones using Robonic hardware. “We can leverage these gains to provide improved launch speeds for existing air vehicles via combination of launcher modifications and new cradle types, with final performance remaining dependent on air vehicle weight”, added Moiso.

***

Robonic Ltd Oy, based in Tampere, Finland, is a Sagem (Safran Group) owned engineering company that operates as the premier unmanned air system launcher manufacturer in Europe. So far, 12 different tactical UAVs and target drones have been launched off Robonic’s MC 2555
LLR catapult. Robonic’s track record of pneumatic launching technology spans over three decades. The company also operates a dedicated unmanned air vehicle flight test centre in Lapland at Kemijarvi, Finland.

Protest Strikes Sweden’s Contract with Patria Again

The U.S. Government has seen an increase in contract protests over the last ten years. This has been especially true with defense contracts. The situation reached a point that late last year the Defense Department’s Undersecretary of Defense for Acquisition, Logistics and Technology, Ashton Carter, actually complained about the problem they had become. Protests of awards while perfectly legal lead to delays in the start of work by the winner and in the case of the KC-X aerial tanker program cause the contest to start over causing major delays to the fielding of a new aircraft.

One of the major reasons for the amount of protests is the small number of large contracts available to be won. This means that each and every win is more important to a company’s bottom line. It is not even with just hardware contracts that you see protests but also with service ones. The last round of TRICARE health care management contracts led to protests some of which were upheld. These contracts were worth billions and the competition was pretty fierce. Now it has become almost expected that the loser of a contract will protest the decision.

It is not only in America though that the problem of protests exists. Sweden had awarded a contract earlier this month to Finnish company Patria Land and Armament Oyj for over a hundred new armored vehicles. The contract has a total value of over $300 million. Now an unidentified Swedish company is protesting the award.

As part of the contract Patria offered to offset the cost of the contract with one hundred percent investment in Sweden’s economy including using Swedish sub-contractors for major components.

The AMV vehicle has been in production for several years and over 1,000 have been ordered since 2004. Interestingly Patria won this contract in 2009 but a protest by BAE Systems Hagglunds, a component of Great Britain’s defense giant, BAE Systems (BAE:LSE), caused a recompete won again by Patria.

In the worst case this protest could lead to another competition delaying the start of the program by another year. Certainly competitors have the right to protest especially if they feel the award was not conducted properly but it does in the end delay the delivery of the hardware which in some cases is necessary for the modern battlefield.

Robonic delivers new drone catapults to the US — Press Release

Robonic delivers new drone catapults to the US

Tampere, Finland, August, 23rd, 2010

Robonic Ltd Oy (a subsidiary of Sagem, Safran group) has delivered a second Robonic MC2555LLR pneumatic launcher to EADS North America to be used to expand ongoing target drone services for the United States Army.

The end user is the U.S. Army’s Targets Management Office (TMO), part of the Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI).

EADS North America is a subcontractor to Applied Geo Technologies Inc, under contract to the TMO to provide and coordinate target drone services. Task orders under that master contract include ongoing presentation services using EADS’ DT-35 target drones and a single Robonic MC2555LLR launcher system.

“This follow-on delivery to EADS North America is an important milestone. We have an extended history of supporting the EADS DT family of systems and will be optimising this new pneumatic launcher to facilitate enhanced DT-35 presentations in parallel to retaining a fully flexible operational capability for the end user. Existing launch operations for the TMO have repeatedly demonstrated the outstanding reliability, durability, responsiveness and tailorability of the Robonic launcher solution,” says Robonic managing director Juha Moisio.

Earlier this year Robonic delivered two launchers to the Finnish Defence Forces. That delivery consolidated their entire unmanned air systems launch capability, covering both unmanned aircraft and target drones, on Robonic hardware.

Finland Lets Large Contract For Air Defense System

The Country of Finland awarded a team of Kongsberg and Raytheon a contract worth about three billion Norwegian Kronor for a complete air defense system. Defpro.daily reports that the system will be based on NASAMS IIs system. This $460 million contract is the largest by the country since it purchased F/A-18 aircraft in the early Nineties.

As it has done in the past Finland is replacing older, Russian equipment with more modern, NATO compliant systems. The new air defense network will offer a significant upgrade in capability over the existing one used by the Finnish military. The NASAMS IIs is based around the AIM-120 air-to-air missile and a Raytheon made radar. It has been purchased by a variety of NATO and Scandinavian countries and was originally developed for Norway.

The contract will allow some of the work to be done in Finland offsetting some of the cost.
