Final Conference Defense Spending Bill from Congress Kills MEADS

Despite threats of a veto from the Obama White House the current conference version of the 2013 Defense Authorization Bill will end the MEADS program. The final version of the law cuts the last planned $400 million expenditure on the new, joint air defense system.

The Medium Extended Air Defense System (MEADS) was being developed by the U.S., Italy and Germany as a replacement for the PATRIOT system made by Raytheon (RTN). Lockheed Martin (LMT) is the lead contractor for the MEADS system. The Administration and Congress have already agreed that newer versions of the PATRIOT will suffice and work on MEADS would end. The dispute is that Congress decided that there was no reason for funding in FY13 rather then completing that year of work.

Italy and Germany had wanted to continue the program having provided several hundred million dollars of funding over its life stretching back to the Nineties. Not only will there be fall out internationally from this decision it is estimated that paying out contract termination fees and close out costs would probably be close to the planned $400 million in funding.

The program had been in its test phase and had recently had some successes.

Unfortunately in the potential fiscal situation new programs that are yet to enter service are the ones that face the biggest cuts as it is possible to utilize some of the things developed but by avoiding production and deployment large amounts of funding are saved. While the Administration wanted that last year of funding it seems clear that Congress intends to not provide it in the FY13 bill.

LDRA Selects Logic Technology to Extend its Reach to European Certification-based Industries — Press Release

Logic Technology applies 20 years of strong sales to embedded markets in Germany, Benelux, Austria and Switzerland
Wirral, UK. November 5, 2012. LDRA, the leading provider of automated software verification, source code analysis and test tools, today announced that it has appointed Logic Technology to extend LDRA’s reach into the German- and Dutch-speaking regions of Europe for safety-, mission- and security-critical markets. With nearly 20 years’ experience in embedded technology sales, Logic Technology brings engineering-savvy expertise to customer sales throughout Germany, Benelux, Austria and Switzerland.

With a joint focus on end-to-end solutions, LDRA and Logic Technology look forward to presenting LDRA’s extensive standards and certification expertise into markets such as industrial control, medical, avionics and automotive industries. In these markets, the early implementation of high-quality code processes dramatically reduces development time and cost, and delivers application code that is more reliable, maintainable and certifiable.

Logic Technology’s comprehensive product offering ranges from software quality and board solutions to development tools and software components. The LDRA tool suite – which includes automated tools that cover the entire development lifecycle from requirements engineering through code compliance; static and dynamic analysis through target testing and verification – will support the end-to-end software testing requirements of Logic Technology’s clients. All Logic Technology sales are complemented by strong technical support, in-depth technology courses and training and consultancy services.

“Known for its engineering competency, Logic Technology understands the challenges of companies that are implementing rigorous certification processes whether for industrial safety, medical devices, automotive compliance or avionics certification,” confirmed Ian Hennell, LDRA Operations Director. “In these markets, accurate guidance in the initial stages of selecting and implementing best-of-breed tools can save companies significant sums of money in product development, maintenance and time to market. Logic Technology understands this and is committed to helping LDRA assist companies in achieving their certification goals.”

“As software applications become exponentially more complex, software development teams struggle to meet scheduled release dates and produce code that is readable, testable and in many cases certifiable,” attested Gilbert Gadet, Sales Manager at Logic Technology. “LDRA’s products and services are at the leading edge of software testing technology, and the LDRA tool suite is an excellent fit for our Code Quality and Productivity Tools portfolio. We are very pleased to be able to offer our clients a way of efficiently testing and certifying their software as well as speeding their time to market.”

LDRA’s leading certification technology, developed over nearly 40 years of helping clients achieve certification readiness, provides a suite of tools fine-tuned to the needs of safety-critical markets. From requirements traceability to analysis, unit testing and validation, the LDRA tool suite supports certification objectives at all levels of design assurance. Widely-used certification templates and checklists establish standard-specific processes that allow applicants to meet management, development and verification objectives.

Supporting a comprehensive list of industry standards, LDRA helps companies achieve certification to the most rigorous levels for avionics (DO-178B/C), industrial safety (IEC 61508), automotive (ISO 26262) medical (IEC 62304) nuclear power (IEC 60880) and railway (EN 50128) systems. LDRA also offers program rule checking, which enables companies to improve or secure code with compliance to standards such as MISRA or Cert C.

Offices in the Netherlands and Germany provide local language support for Benelux, Germany, Austria and Switzerland. For companies in these regions, please contact Logic Technology for additional details about LDRA products and services:

FY12 Defense Contracts Flow and Lockheed Martin Benefits

The Pentagon may be planning to reduce or hold spending flat in the upcoming years but with the final passage of the 2012 defense budget major contracts are now flowing to different contractors as Project and Program Offices place production orders. Lockheed Martin (LMT) benefited from this yesterday as they received the latest production contract for the PATRIOT PAC-3 missile.

The PATRIOT air and missile defense system is made up of two major parts: the radar and the interceptor. Currently Raytheon (RTN) is the prime contractor for the radar and command and control systems while Lockheed manufactures the current standard missile, the PAC-3. The PAC-3 version of the system in use since the late Eighties incorporates modifications to maximize missile defense capabilities while the missile is smaller, relies on hit-to-kill technology and is a significant upgrade to the earlier PAC-2 missile as it allows more rounds to be used by each launch unit.

The FY12 order is for both U.S. Army use as well as a follow on delivery for Taiwan. It has a value of just over $900 million and represents a rather significant contract. The work includes not only the missiles but also kits, spares, support equipment and engineering services.

The PATRIOT represents the shorter ranged part of the Army’s missile defense capability with the Theater High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system made by Lockheed providing longer range and larger area defense.

The PATRIOT has seen significant foreign military sales to countries like Germany, the Netherlands, Israel, Saudi Arabia, U.A.E. and Taiwan. It is especially valuable to those countries facing a ballistic missile threat like Israel, Taiwan and the Gulf States.

The PAC-3 missile has been in production for several years from Lockheed’s facility in Camden, AR.

Germany Receives First Euro Hawk UAV

Northrop Grumman (NOC) has been building the Global Hawk large, long range Intelligence, Surveillance & Reconnaissance (ISR) Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) for the U.S. Air Force for over a decade. The systems have seen a great deal of use since 9/11. Versions are also being developed for the U.S. Navy and Germany.

Unlike the Predator or other smaller UAV used by the Army, Air Force and other U.S. agencies the Global Hawk is designed to conduct high altitude, long range missions gathering different types of intelligence rather then flying low level surveillance and strike missions. The Global Hawk demonstrated its capabilities early in the program by flying from the U.S. non-stop to Australia.

Germany this week took delivery of their first system which is equipped with an intelligence collection package made by Cassadian, part of EADS (EADS:P). That aircraft had earlier this summer flown across the Atlantic and was then received the Cassadian developed Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) package.

This variant of Global Hawk is called “Euro Hawk”.

As with all programs any sales to other customers aids the overall program health by reducing production costs. This is why overseas and FMS sales are important to the U.S. The Euro Hawk will end up making the Global Hawk cheaper for the Air Force to buy and operate.

South Korea Makes Major Move in World’s Arms Market

The production of advanced weaponry used to be reserved for the United States, its Western Allies and the former Soviet Union. Countries needing things like submarines, jet fighters, missiles and warships would often buy directly from these sources. In some cases they would license the technology to create an indigenous production capability. This was often done to aid in winning the deal or for diplomatic reasons. Many times the original owner of the technology would place restrictions on its use or transfer. The United States compared to other nations has always had strict controls over the future transfer of its weapons but this is not always true of other companies and governments.

South Korea has been working for several years with the German company Howaldstswerke-Deutsche Werft (HDW) on the production of submarines for its Navy. These include conventional diesel electric but also fuel cell powered vessels. So far 12 submarines are in use and a further 6 are being planned for construction. The 3 fuel cell Type 214 were built in Germany but as part of the contract South Korea established the ability to build them at their own yard.

Now the Korean company Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) is working on a contract with Indonesia to provide 3 submarines manufactured alongside the Korean ones. This contract if it is executed could be worth over $1 billion. This is much larger then the previous record for trainer aircraft for that country worth about $400 million.

This contract is not only important to the development of South Korea’s arms industry but it will help offset the cost of producing weapons for its own use at a time when it is very concerned with North Korea. It also puts pressure on the U.S. and Western defense contractors who are looking for such types of deals to help them weather the coming downturn in defense spending. Now they face more competition for contracts in Asia, the Middle East and South America which are the prime markets to help cushion the lack of contracts from their governments.

The delivery of the submarines will also mean South Korea has taken a major step forward as an arms supplier to the world. These are complex systems and require a substantial supplier base for components. This will be further developed as more contracts are made with the South Korean and foreign navies that will then support cheaper and more advanced systems.
