Lockheed Martin’s Aegis Computer Program Development Approved by U.S. Navy for Australian Warfare Destroyer

MOORESTOWN, NJ, May 21, 2012 –Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] has completed computer program development and testing for the HOBART class Air Warfare Destroyer (AWD), the Royal Australian Navy’s Aegis-equipped ships. The computer programs have been approved by the U.S. Navy.

Tests were conducted over a two-week period at the Navy's land-based test facility, the Vice Admiral James H. Doyle Combat Systems Engineering Development Site in New Jersey.

"The Aegis Weapon System enables navies around the world to protect their citizens and their nations from continuously evolving threats,” said Doug Wilhelm, director of international Aegis programs for Lockheed Martin’s Mission Systems & Sensors business. “We look forward to working with the U.S and allied navies to continue to provide proven anti-air warfare capability on a global scale.”

The HOBART class will be capable of simultaneous operations in a multi-warfare environment, including anti-air, anti-surface, anti-submarine and naval gunfire support roles.

Lockheed Martin is a leader in combat systems integration and the development of integrated air and missile defense systems and technologies. Manufacturing work for this program will occur in Moorestown, N.J.

In addition to the U.S. and Australian navies, Aegis is also the weapon system for the navies of Japan, Norway, the Republic of Korea and Spain. The 100 Aegis-equipped ships in service around the globe have more than 1,250 years of at-sea operational experience and have launched more than 3,800 missiles in tests and real-world operations.

Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security and aerospace company that employs about 123,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services. The Corporation's net sales for 2011 were $46.5 billion.

Navy intercepts boat of asylum seekers

The navy has intercepted a suspected asylum seeker boat carrying 88 people off Australia's northwest coast on Monday.

Home Affairs Minister Jason Clare said HMAS Ararat, operating under the control of Border Protection Command, intercepted the boat northwest of Christmas Island on Monday.

Mr Clare said the boat was initially detected by Customs and Border Protection surveillance aircraft.

He said the passengers would be transferred to Christmas Island for initial security, health and identity checks.

Australia's secret plan for war with China uncovered
Posted: Friday, June 1, 2012 11:49 PM EST Updated: Friday, June 1, 2012 11:49 PM EST

Source: The Australian
SYDNEY -- A secret chapter from the Australian government's 2009 defense white paper detailed a plan to fight a war with China, in which the navy's submarines would help blockade its trade routes, and raised the prospect of China firing missiles at targets in Australia in retaliation.

A new book 'The Kingdom and the Quarry: China, Australia, Fear and Greed' reveals how Force 2030 set out in the white paper -- to include 12 big conventional submarines with missiles, revolutionary Joint Strike Fighters, air warfare destroyers and giant landing ships -- was being prepared for a possible war with Australia's main trading partner.

The public version of the paper stopped short of declaring that war with China was what the authors feared. To avoid offending the Chinese and to create a degree of deniability, discussion of possible future conflict relied on euphemisms such as a "major power adversary."

David Uren, the book's author, reveals that the Australian Treasury came under intense pressure to prepare detailed costings for a mass of new equipment but most of that information also disappeared from the public version of the white paper.

The book describes the fierce debate between key figures in the Australian Defence Force, who argued that Australia needed to be prepared for a conflict with China and intelligence agencies that said China was not expansionist and was unlikely to pose such a threat.

A public version excluded a chapter focused on Australia's ability to fight an air-sea battle alongside the US against China. The plan was for blockades distant from China but designed to control its sea routes and stop the flow of natural resources on which its industrial engine depended.

"Part of the Defence thinking is that in the event of a conflict with the US, China would attempt to destroy Pine Gap, the US-Australia signals facility near Alice Springs, which is crucial for guiding US military operations in Asia ... the paper envisages a very different world in which Australian naval operations alongside the US in, say, the South China Sea, could lead to direct Chinese attack on Australia ...," the paper said.

The Beijing media said the white paper was a victory for the "hawks" in Australia's defense establishment and that was partly because former prime minister Kevin Rudd wanted to show himself to the electorate as tough on China, to show loyalty to the US and to give Australia an excuse to increase its forces.

ANZAC Class Sustainment Contract Signed
05 Juni 2012
Imagem
HMAS Perth, Anzac class frigates (photo : RAN)


A contract has been signed with Naval Ship Management (Australia), a new joint venture between Babcock and United Group Limited Infrastructure, for the repair and maintenance of the Navy’s eight ANZAC Class frigates.

This contract is the first of the grouped-asset, long term, performance-based contracts for the repair and maintenance of the Navy’s major surface ships. It reflects extensive engagement with Defence industry to develop a better model for the grouping or ‘batching’ of ship repair and maintenance jobs.

The contract has an anticipated value of $300 million dollars over five years, with the potential for rolling year-on-year contract extensions.

The revised model is more efficient, reducing the administrative burden of pre-event tender contracting, and providing greater predictability, certainty and stability for industry.

It will also allow Navy to plan and forecast maintenance and repair.

Australia kicks off submarine replacement

Published: June 7, 2012 at 6:30 AM

CANBERRA, Australia, June 7 (UPI) -- Australia's largest defense project got under way with the first meeting of government and industry leaders who will look at skills needed for the 30-year submarine project.

The Expert Panel of the Future Submarine Industry Skills Plan has begun consultations with defense manufacturers and educational institutions to identify the country's skills base within the ship construction supply chain as a prelude to tendering and production.

On the Expert Panel are senior executives from Australia's main shipbuilders ASC, Austal, BAE Systems and Forgacs Engineering as well as chief executive officers of major naval systems integration companies -- Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, Boeing, Thales, Saab Systems and BAE Systems.

Also on the panel are representatives from unions and the government's Department of Industry, Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education.

Last month the government set aside $214 million for initial studies to determine the country's submarine building capability to construct the 12 ships, none of them to be nuclear.

The government is also looking at land-based test facilities.

"The Future Submarine Project is the biggest and most complex defense project Australia has ever embarked upon," Minister for Defense Materiel Jason Clare said.

"Hundreds of companies and thousands of workers will be required to support the construction of Australia's future submarines. The Industry Skills Plan will establish a road map to build and sustain the skills required to successfully deliver Australia's Future Submarine capability," he said.

The panel's terms of reference means it will be looking at systems design, naval architecture, propulsion and combat system engineering, production engineering, project planning and control, production scheduling, material procurement, risk management, budget control and financial accounting.

Also investigated will be Australia's supply of hard manufacturing and trade skills such as welders, boilermakers and electricians.

The government is considering the purchase of off-the-shelf ships from French builder DCNS, designer of the Scorpion, HD of Germany which builds the Type 212 and Type 214 submarines and from Nirvana in Spain, designer of the S-80 submarine.

In December the Department of Defense issued requests for information to DCNS, HD and Nirvana. It also signed a deal with Babcock for a study into a land-based propulsion test site, a report by Defense.com news Web site said.

But the government, in an effort to keep its six Collins class submarines updated until the new boats arrive, is talking with Swedish ship designer and builder Kockums to study obsolescence issues that may arise.

The Collins class submarines were built in the 1990 and 2000s and decommissioning will start likely by 2025.

Australia first set out its submarine replacement strategy in the 2009 White Paper Defending Australia in the Asia Pacific Century: Force 2030.

The fleet is being enlarged because of concerns over increases in the naval forces of Australia's Southeast Asian neighbors, in particular China which is in the process of introducing its first aircraft carrier.

O almirante encarregado de planejar para a próxima geração da Austrália de submarinos eo cientista principal defesa está estudando um submarino novo e avançado em serviço com a marinha japonesa.

Contra-almirante Rowan Moffitt, chefe do Programa da Royal Australian Marinha Submarine Futuro, e Dr. Alexander Zelinsky, o Cientista de Defesa Chefe, viajar para o Japão este mês para olhar para os submarinos Soryu de classe, que começou o serviço com o Marítimo Japão Auto-Defesa vigor três anos atrás.

O acesso à tecnologia Soryu foi discutido durante uma visita à Austrália no mês passado pelo chefe da marinha japonesa, Masahiko Almirante Sugimoto. Foi somente em dezembro que Tokyo levantou a pós-Primeira Guerra Mundial II embargo sobre as exportações de defesa.

'' A nossa estratégia com os japoneses é de esperança, porque há algumas características muito interessantes sobre o submarino japonês,'' contra-almirante disse Moffitt.

Bem como ter uma relação estreita aliança com os Estados Unidos semelhante ao da Austrália, da Marinha do Japão operava no ambiente da Ásia-Pacífico mesma, o que se refletiu na sua concepção de submarinos, disse ele.

'' O submarino, por todas as contas, e sua concepção ea evolução do projeto, que tem por todas as contas trouxe ao ponto de ter um submarino muito bom'', contra-almirante disse Moffitt.

'' No entanto, a tecnologia submarina tende a ser jóia da coroa, coisas para as nações, ela tende a ser no final mais extremo de sensibilidade que as nações têm de proteger sua propriedade intelectual - especialmente se eles desenvolveram por si próprios, como o Japão tem, como o EUA tem. Eles investiram uma grande quantidade de dinheiro fazendo isso.'' Fonte: SidneyMorning Herald traduzido online

Aircraft Carrier Hull to be Carried on Dockwise HTV

Australian Landing Helicopter Dock (ALHD) ship hull is for onboard Heavy Transport Vessel (HTV) delivery to Australia from Spain.

Blue Marlin, the largest semi-submersible HTV available to date, is to load shortly the Navantia manufactured hull (230 meters in length) of the amphibious ALHD flagship Canberra for delivery to the Royal Australian Navy.

he ALHD Canberra is the first of two cargoes to commence the 12,000 nautical mile voyage around Cape of Good Hope estimated to be completed in 45 days.

A complex technical challenge emerged: the aircraft carrier hull was calculated to protrude 55 meters from the aft end of the Blue Marlin. To meet this challenge Dockwise marine engineers had to work closely with the Navantia team to develop a new grillage and sea-fastening design to safeguard the hull against forces that may be encountered on the voyage.
Imagem
The second, the ALHD Adelaide, will be transported in early 2014. Both hulls are built along the lines of the Juan Carlos 1 of the Spanish Navy by the naval shipyard in Ferrol that is now managed by Navantia.

The Heavy Marine Transport vessel Blue Marlin was built in 2000. She is the largest semi-submersible vessel afloat measuring 224 meters by 63 meters and capable of transporting cargo of up to 76,000 tons. fonte: Defense Studies

Problemas de envelhecimento prematuro dos geradores do HMAS Choules L100
24 de setembro de 2012

Imagemwikipedia

Em 18 de Junho de 2012 um comunicado de imprensa foi liberado detalhando as circunstâncias iniciais em torno do defeito ocorrido em um dos transformadores de propulsão em HMAS Choules em 14 de junho de 2012. Esta é uma atualização para essa versão.

No momento do incidente todos os transformadores outro foram verificadas através do fabricante do transformador (Siemens) e verificou-se estar dentro da especificação.

Após a remoção dos dois transformadores de estibordo de propulsão, mais investigação tem sido possível, e isto indicou sinais de envelhecimento prematuro.

Inspeções nível mais profundo de todos os transformadores remanescentes no navio já revelou problemas semelhantes, mas em diferentes níveis.

O fabricante do transformador é ainda confirmar que esta contribui para o fracasso do estibordo propulsão transformador.

Trabalho está em andamento em conjunto com o fabricante do transformador, as agências on-site de apoio e de Defesa de Ciência e Tecnologia da Organização para determinar quando os transformadores restantes precisam ser substituídos.

A Organização de Material de Defesa é também entrar em contato com o Ministério da Defesa britânico para coordenar investigações.

Caso Choules HMAS ser ainda mais atrasada em seu retorno ao serviço, HMAS Tobruk e australiano navio Ocean Shield Defesa irá fornecer qualquer assistência humanitária ou de resposta de socorro, se exigido pelo Governo.

Fonte Original: http://news.defence.gov.au/2012/09/21/h ... es-update/

OBS: O L100 é um landing ship dock de 16.000 tons e 176 metros e foi lançado em 2003 e entrou em operação em 2006 como RFA Largs Bay, sendo desativado prematuramente em 2011 e vendido a Austrália.
É muito cedo para ter que trocar seus geradores, vamos ver para quem vai sobrar a conta.

Push for Adelaide to secure a fourth $2 billion air warfare destroyer

September 27, 2012 10:00PM
Imagem

ADELAIDE is in line to secure a fourth $2 billion air warfare destroyer because the Federal Government wants a major shipbuilding project in its defence program.

The project will be included in next year's Defence White Paper.

The Government wants to help bridge the national skills gap and a fourth air warfare destroyer is the likely choice.

Three of the hi-tech destroyers are being assembled by ASC at Osborne, with the work due to end by 2019, which is several years before the next generation submarine project is due to begin at the shipyard.

According to government sources an extra destroyer would provide enough work for ASC at Osborne and several other yards, including BAE Systems in Melbourne and Forgacs in Newcastle, to maintain skills until the submarine build begins.

The destroyer project is valued at $8 billion and is a major technological step forward for Australia.

The ships are equipped with the most advanced radars and a modern missile and fire control system.

The government plan could also include an acceleration of the $30 billion new submarine project so that the design and construction work can begin before the original 2025 start date.

This would provide the Osborne yard and Adelaide with a strong pool of skilled workers for the next 30 years.

In the past, vital national skills have been lost and then rehired at great cost because of gaps between major defence projects. Further funding flexibility is being created by delays to the $16 billion Joint Strike Fighter project that could free up hundreds of millions for another warship.

Defence Materiel Minister Jason Clare told an industry conference in Canberra yesterday that the nation could not afford to lose the skills acquired during the destroyer and amphibious ships build.

According to previous schedules there was a gap of several years between the end of the destroyers and the start of the submarines that will be assembled in Adelaide.

"We need to build a bridge across this valley of death," Mr Clare said. "We can't let this happen again, not in preparation for a project as large and complicated as the future submarine project."

The Government has already slowed down the destroyer project to buy itself and industry an extra year, but another major ship build is required to prevent another skills debacle between 2019 and 2025.

An extra air warfare destroyer or a third amphibious ship would fit the bill.

Industry experts said the long-term future of Australian shipbuilding was bright, with up to 48 new platforms including submarines, frigates, offshore patrol vessels and patrol boats on the drawing board.

They will be built around the country, including Adelaide, Melbourne and Perth.

"The next white paper will be realistic and affordable and provide significant incentives to invest," one source said.

The 12 new submarines will be built under a rolling schedule, with three or four coming out at a time over a total period of 25 years or more.

Senior officials, including chief defence scientist Dr Alexander Zelinsky and head of the navy's new submarine program Rear Admiral Rowan Moffitt have been to Japan recently to discuss technology transfers, including a revolutionary Japanese propulsion system and new generation lithium batteries.

Defence Minister Stephen Smith this week revealed that talks were well advanced on an agreement regarding the submarine propulsion system.

BAE Systems ready for LHD arrival

Imagem
Artist's impression of new LHD being built for the Royal Australian Navy


Everything is ready at BAE Systems Williamstown shipyard for the arrival of the first Landing Helicopter Dock (LHD) hull.


BAE Systems Director Maritime, Bill Saltzer said preparation works were complete and the Australian team are ready to start work on the next phase of the construction, as soon as it arrives at Williamstown in the next few weeks.

Mr Saltzer’s comments followed today’s announcement by the Minister for Defence Materiel, Jason Clare, that the heavy lift ship transporting the LHD hull from Spain, had entered Australian waters.

“In the last few months, works have proceeded at a rapid pace as we prepare for the arrival of the first hull,” he said.

“Construction, outfitting and consolidation of the four sections of the superstructure is continuing in the Williamstown yard and this includes the mast modules fabricated at the BAE Systems yard at Henderson in Western Australia.

“Preparation works have also included a multi-million dollar upgrade to Nelson Pier where the ship will be docked.”

“Most recently as part of the preparation for the arrival, one of the largest permanently-based cranes in Australia has been assembled on Nelson Pier.”

Mr Saltzer said the total mass of the crane and the counterweight is in excess of 800 tonnes. He said the combined mass of the crane, support steelwork and the load during the first lift of the LHD blocks would be in excess of 1500 tonnes. The first section of superstructure to be lifted weighed approximately 300 tonnes and would be lifted to a height of approximately 25 meters. It then needed to be placed in exactly the right position for it to be joined to the deck of the LHD.

“As you can image heavy lifts of this magnitude are a very delicate operation and are weather dependent. We will need to wait for exactly the right conditions before we proceed to ensure that the operation is done in a safe and controlled manner.”

Mr Saltzer said that several members of the BAE Systems team who have been stationed in Spain, along with some of the shipbuilders from Navantia are already on site to work with the team here so that hull arrival and berthing go smoothly.

“This is an exciting time for BAE Systems as the prime contractor for this project. We are about to start the next phase of its construction which will take it through to completion on Australian soil.

We are looking forward with anticipation and excitement to seeing this amazing vessel alongside Nelson Pier in Williamstown,” he said.

The hull, which was constructed by Spanish shipbuilder Navantia, left Spain in mid-August.

Facts favour nuclear-powered submarines
By Simon Cowan - posted Monday, 5 November 2012

Australia's $40 billion project to replace our six Collins Class submarines with 12 Future Submarines is at risk of failing. In addition to the potential gap between the retirement of the Collins Class and the commissioning of the Future Submarine, there are unsolved problems with the Collins Class that threaten the viability of our future fleet.

Australia's diesel-powered Collins Class submarines are expensive and unreliable and these problems are likely to be inherited by any Australian-designed Future Submarine. As a result of these problems, Australia must explore leasing the US Navy's nuclear-powered Virginia Class attack submarine.

Nuclear-powered submarines can travel further, faster and remain deployed for much longer than their diesel-powered rivals. Nuclear-powered submarines operate more powerful sensors, systems and weaponry.

Despite these advantages, the government has refused to consider a nuclear option, instead preferring to substantially redesign an existing diesel submarine. The same process gave us the Collins Class; we don't need to repeat the mistake to know the likely outcome.

Each Collins Class submarine costs more than $110 million a year to maintain and operate, with total costs for the six submarines likely to exceed $1 billion a year by 2021. Nor has the higher cost meant greater reliability. Typically, no more than two Collins Class submarines have been available for deployment. The rest have been in maintenance or awaiting repair of serious defects.

By contrast, the Virginia Class submarine costs the United States approximately $50 million per submarine per year and is proving very reliable.

The acquisition costs are lower too. The upfront cost of leasing eight Virginia Class submarines (together with establishment costs) is $23 billion to $27 billion, substantially lesser than the $40 billion estimate for the diesel-powered Future Submarines.

The US would seriously consider a request from Australia to lease Virginia Class submarines. Leasing nuclear submarines to Australia is in the interests of both Australia and the United States.

The US is rebalancing its fleet towards the Pacific to face the challenges of the Asian Century and the security tensions in the region. As a key US ally in the region, Australia's submarine forces are effective force multipliers for the US so the US wants to ensure that Australia has capable, reliable submarines. At the same time, the US Defence Department is facing a mandatory 10% budget cut across all programs. Australia participating in the Virginia Class program would alleviate these concerns. There are also historical precedents, the United States exported nuclear submarine technology to the United Kingdom in the 1950s and agreed to do the same for Canada in the 1980s.

Arguments against nuclear-powered submarines don't add up. The defence minister cited self-reliance as the main reason for rejecting nuclear-powered submarines. However, the Collins Class submarine was the poster child for self-reliance and it is hardly a success story.

Moreover, Australia depends heavily on foreign defence companies (and their Australian subsidiaries) for development and sustainment of its platforms now, and that dependence will only increase given Australia's declining defence budgets.

While nuclear safety is an important consideration, US nuclear-powered submarines have a perfect safety record, having travelled more than 240 million kilometres without a single reactor incident and visited Australian bases since 1960 without any problems. Moreover, submarine reactors are a fraction of the size of a nuclear power plant and much less dangerous.

What is important is getting the best submarine we can for the money the government is willing to spend. Rejecting highly capable nuclear-powered submarines on the basis of ideological objections, or for reasons like defence industry protectionism, is a mistake. Australia must correct that mistake and consider nuclear-powered submarines for the Future Submarine project.
