US to Sell $800Mln of Hellfire, Captive Air Training Missiles to Iraq

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The United States has approved the sale of $800 million worth of Hellfire missiles and Captive Air Training Missiles to Iraq, The Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) announced in a statement on Thursday.

"The State Department has made a determination approving a possible Foreign Military Sale to Iraq of Hellfire missiles and Captive Air Training Missiles, related equipment and support. The estimated cost is $800 million. The Defense Security Cooperation Agency delivered the required certification notifying Congress of this possible sale on January 6, 2016," the statement said.

Washington’s latest weapons sale to Iraq comes as the United States has vowed to help Iraqi forces fight Daesh (Islamic State) within its borders, as the terrorist organization has claimed swaths of territory in the region.

DSCA said that the sale of 5,000 AGM-114K/N/R Hellfire missiles, ten 114K M36E9 Captive Air Training Missiles, as well as "associated equipment; and defense services," which major US defense contractor Lockheed Martin will produce, came at the request of Iraq.

In recent months, Iraqi security forces made progress in reclaiming Ramadi, the capital of Anbar province, after the city fell to Daesh terrorists in May, in Baghdad’s largest defeat against the extremist group.

Are Saudi Arabia and Iran Edging Toward War?

04.01.2016 © Photo: sajed.ir

The conflict between Saudi Arabia and Iran could spark a conflict considerably more damaging and horrific than the Iran-Iraq War, but would they actually do it?

Kirill Vysokolov — After Saudi Arabia and Iran broke off diplomatic relations on Sunday, the prospect of war between the two countries has become a new concern.

The two countries are already said to be involved in proxy wars against each other in Yemen and Syria. The new escalation with the killing of a prominent Shiite preacher draws parallels to the 1980s, which led to a conflict that threatened to engulf the whole region.

A war between the two countries would not be in the interest of any major power; as such a conflict would both spread regional instability and create shocks in the global oil supply. However, Saudi Arabia has apparently already said that it would not obey orders from Washington.

After being fully repaired, MiG-29 fourth generation jet fighters will be deployed to the Russian airbase in Erebuni to protect Armenian airspace.


A group of MiG-29 multirole jet fighters will be deployed to the Russian airbase Erebuni in Armenia in the second half of 2016, the press office of the Russian Southern Military District reported. MiG-29 jets which will be deployed to the airbase after being fully repaired have been used to protect Armenia’s airspace within the joint air defense systems of the CIS. They have also been involved in regular training flights in accordance with the combat readiness program.

"In the second half of 2016, a new unit of MiG-29 fourth-generation multirole jets as well as a Mi-8 transport helicopter will be deployed to the Erebuni airbase, in Armenia," according to the report. The military underscored that after the New Year holiday season preparations will start at the airfield for the new aircraft, including building storage housing modules.

In November 1998, Russia deployed the first MiG-29 jets to the Erebuni airbase. In July 2001, an air force unit was formed from the aircraft deployed to the base.

Saudi Arabia Wants to Buy 72 Rafale Multirole Fighter

Jan 4, 2016

French «Intelligence online» in the article «Riyad veut appater Paris avec un contrat Rafale», with reference to its sources, reported that Defense Minister of Saudi Arabia and the Deputy Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman appealed to Paris with the request in the coming weeks to submit a proposal for the supply of fighter aircraft Dassault Rafale.

Saudi Arabia wants to buy 72 Rafale Multirole Fighter. The Dassault Rafale is French twin-engine, canard delta wing, multirole fighter aircraft designed and built by Dassault Aviation.

France is anticipating an additional pair of export orders for its Rafale fighter, with Malaysia and the United Arab Emirates reportedly the most likely candidates. Reuters also reported Thursday that negotiations between India and France are now also discussing the possible supply of additional Rafales on top of the 36 ordered in April. Malaysia is looking to replace its MiG-29 Fulcrums, with the UAE recently restarting negotiations for the Rafale as it looks to swap out its fleet of Mirage 2000-9 fighters. The Gulf state has previously articulated a potential buy of sixty Rafales.

The Dassault Rafale were developed for the French Air Force and Navy. France’s Air Force and Navy ordered 180 (132 for the air force and 48 for the navy), 100 aircraft had been delivered by the end of 2010.

The Rafale entered service with the French Navy in 2004 and with the French Air Force in 2006. Ten aircraft are operational on the Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) has phased out the Skystar 300 aerostat surveillance system it has been using for nine years, but is now operating the new Skystar 330.

RT LTA Systems, the manufacturer of the Skystar family, said at the end of December 2015 that the IDF's first Skystar 330 is being used by the Combat Intelligence Collection Corps.

It added that the Skystar 330 has been ordered by a European country, which will receive it in the near future.

RT CEO Rami Shmueli said: "With the new technology that is introduced into this system, we were able to deliver a high-end system for military and homeland security applications."

The IDF made extensive use of the Skystar 300 along its border with Gaza to gain tactical intelligence for forces on the ground and the 330 is designed to perform the same role.

RT said it will continue to provide maintenance services for the dozens of Skystar 300s that are still in service with foreign customers.

The US Navy's (USN's) first production model Ship-to-Shore Connector (SSC) hovercraft is entering its next manufacturing stages as the hull has been completed.

The craft's buoyancy box is to now transition from a hull assembly line to the first craft assembly station for integration of above deck modules such as the personnel and equipment module, command module, and engine module, navy officials said in a 4 December statement.

The first production-model SSC, LCAC 100, is scheduled for delivery by contractor Textron Systems in 2017.

According to the navy, "the craft's hull is initially constructed upside down for ease of welding and construction, and then flipped to complete its assembly." To do this, LCAC 100's 40-ton hull was attached to a turnover fixture and winches help move the craft while a crane pulls the hull up and over, the service explained.

The SSC is to have a 74-ton payload at speeds of more than 35 kt. It can use an enclosed personnel transport module to carry up to 145 combat-equipped marines or 108 casualty personnel, and can accommodate current Abrams main battle tank configurations. The vessel measures 90 ft long and 40 ft wide.

It is meant to supplant ageing Landing Craft Air Cushion (LCAC) hovercraft, the original prototypes for which date back to the 1970s and were designed with a 20-year service life. The USN hopes to buy 73 SSCs (a one-for-one replacement with one craft for testing) for a USD47 million average per unit cost and achieve an initial operational capability in 2020 with eight hovercraft

Northrop Grumman

PALMDALE -- Amid signs of growing U.S. Air Force and Navy interest in a sixth-generation combat aircraft, Northrop Grumman is accelerating studies of key technologies for directed energy weapons and thermal management, which it says will be fundamental to future capability.

The company, whose last venture into the air dominance arena in the 1980s, the YF-23, lost out to Lockheed Martin’s F-22 in the advanced tactical fighter contest, has unveiled new images of a pair of optionally manned, tailless concepts aimed at replacing the Raptor and the Boeing F/A-18E/F. While acknowledging there are still more unknowns than known about future requirements for the next generation air dominance (NGAD) aircraft, Northrop says technology to cope with dramatic growth in heat loads will be a key enabler to whatever needs emerge

Spice 250 integration to boost Israeli air force

10 July, 2015


  • BY: Arie Egozi
  • Tel Aviv
The Israeli air force is equipping its strike aircraft with Rafael’s Spice 250 glide bomb, which the company says offers a stand-off range of up to 54nm (100km) by using its deployable wings.

Lockheed Martin F-16s equipped with the manufacturer’s smart quad rack will be able to carry four of the weapons per pylon, allowing each aircraft to engage multiple targets. Maximum load-out on the Boeing F-15 is 28 bombs.

The Spice 250 is provided as a complete system, unlike previous members of the same guided weapons family – which came in kit form for integration with Mk 83 454kg (1,000lb) and Mk 84 908kg “dumb” bombs.

Israel’s air force has used the 908kg version of Spice in combat, and the weapon has a range of over 32nm. The kit adapted for Mk 83 bombs enables a range of over 54nm, with an upgrade effort intended to extend this further.

Rafael says the Spice 250 can be loaded with up to 100 optional targets in a given area. A datalink allows for the impact point to be updated post-release, enabling the weapon to engage time-sensitive and moving ground targets.

After reaching a target area using GPS/INS navigation, the Spice 250’s dual-mode charge-coupled device/imaging infrared seeker enables positive identification – by using a scene-matching algorithm to compare the received electro-optical image with stored mission reference data – and pinpoint accuracy. It also supports battle damage indication needs by transmitting the target image just before impact. Rafael cites a circular error probable figure of less than 3m (9.8ft) for an engagement.

Yuval Miller, executive vice-president and head of Rafael’s Air and C4ISR division, says the Spice 250 has different types of explosives to handle “specific” targets

Defence & Security News - General Atomics

General Atomics Railgun successfully achieved Critical Open Range Tests
General Atomics Electromagnetic Systems (GA-EMS) announced today that projectiles with prototype components for a Control and Actuation System (CAS) successfully performed programmed actions and communicated component performance to a ground station via a telemetry link in tests carried out 7-10 December 2015 at the U.S. Army’s Dugway Proving Ground in Utah.

Blitzer Electromagnetic Railgun

Fired at accelerations greater than 30,000 times that of gravity from GA-EMS’ 3 mega joule Blitzer® electromagnetic railgun, the four test projectiles and the critical components within them experienced the multi-Tesla electromagnetic field within the launcher and performed as expected.

“We continue to mature railgun projectile technologies and conduct testing under varied open range, real-world conditions,” stated Nick Bucci, Vice President Missile Defense Systems, GA-EMS. “We remain committed to advancing this transformational weapon system and are making significant progress in the development and testing of multi-mission railgun projectiles and critical component technologies.”

During the December test firings, the projectiles not only survived and operated under the 30,000 G-force and multi-Tesla magnetic field launch conditions, but also successfully performed under ambient operating temperatures ranging between 20 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit, with up to 4 inches of snow on the ground, and with wind conditions ranging from 10 to 50 knots. To date, projectiles have been open range tested under temperatures varying from minus 11 degrees to as high as 105 degrees.

In June, 2015, GA-EMS successfully tested and received data from projectiles with on-board electronics, and marked the 100th launch of its 3 mega joule Blitzer testing prototype railgun weapon system. After the December test series, the Blitzer railgun system has performed 120 successful launches. Risk reduction and technology maturation testing of additional components will continue in 2016.

GA-EMS’ Blitzer railgun is a test asset designed and manufactured by GA-EMS to advance technology development toward multi-mission railgun weapon systems. Railguns launch projectiles using electromagnetic forces instead of chemical propellants and can deliver muzzle velocities greater than twice those of conventional guns. Blitzer railgun technology, when integrated into a weapon system that includes the launcher, high density capacitor driven pulsed power, and weapon fire control system, can launch multi-mission projectiles with shorter time-to-target and greater effectiveness at longer range.

Indian MoD looks to close deal for 100 modified K-9 self-propelled howitzers

India's Ministry of Defence (MoD) began price negotiations with Indian private-sector company Larsen & Toubro (L&T) in late December 2015 for 100 modified South Korean self-propelled howitzers (SPHs) for around USD800 million.

Military sources said the K-9 Vajra (Thunderbolt), which is an L&T-modified version of Samsung Techwin's K-9 155 mm/52-calibre tracked SPH produced under a collaborative agreement, was shortlisted for acquisition in late September 2015 following extended field trials that were concluded in early 2014.

In these the K-9 - which is in service with the armies of South Korea, Poland, and Turkey - bested an adaptation of Russia's MSTA-S 152 mm SPH that had been modified with a 155 mm/52-calibre gun.

Industry sources said the K-9 SPH, which is being procured for the Indian Army under the 'Buy Global' category of the Defence Procurement Procedure (DPP), would be built at L&T's Telegaon plant near Pune in western India.

MoD officials said this DPP classification sanctions domestic companies to enter into tie-ups with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to offer co-operatively developed equipment and platforms to the Indian military.

It is likely that the L&T-built K-9 will contain 50% indigenous content, as this would help it bypass a mandatory 30% offset investment into the domestic defence, internal security, and civil aviation sectors.

Industry sources said the SPH deal is likely to be signed during the upcoming financial year, beginning on 1 April, and includes an option for an additional 50 K-9 systems.

"The SPH procurement is long overdue and would plug a major operational gap in the army's depreciated artillery profile," said military analyst Major General Sheru Thapliyal (retd). Once inducted, the K-9 systems would provide the army with a high level of battlefield flexibility, the former artillery officer added.

Constructed of all-welded steel armour capable of withstanding 14.5 mm armour-piercing rounds and 152 mm shell splinters, the K-9's design incorporates an automatic fire control and loading system, a modular azimuth position system (MAPS), and a powered gun elevation and turret traverse system.

UAE to get 12 more HIMARSs

Jeremy Binnie, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly

03 January 2016

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) will get another 12 Lockheed Martin M142 High Mobility Artillery rocket Systems (HIMARSs) under a USD143 million contract announced by the US Department of Defense (DoD) on 30 December. Mounted on an FMTV truck, HIMARSs can carry a pod with either a single 610 mm ATACMS ballistic missile with a range of 300 km or a pod containing six 227 mm M26 artillery rockets or the guided GMLRS version.

The US Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) announced in 2006 that the UAE had requested the sale of 20 HIMARSs with 202 ATACMS pods, 260 GMLRS pods, and 104 M26 pods. The US Army confirmed in October 2013 that the systems had been delivered when it released photographs of them being operated by the UAE's 97th Heavy Artillery Regiment during a training exercise.

The DSCA announced in September 2014 that the UAE had requested a second batch of 12 HIMARSs with 100 ATACMS pods and 65 GMLRS pods.

The 30 December DoD contract announcement said the cabs on the new batch will have improved protection and that the UAE will also receive associated training, spares, and product-improvement modifications. It also stated that the contract includes for Jordan's HIMARSs and that it is expected to be completed by 30 December 2017.

A Lockheed Martin representative told the dodbuzz.com website in October 2015 that the company had reopened both the ATACMS and GMLRS production lines due to renewed international demand.

During the Dubai Air Show in November 2015, Tim Stanton, Lockheed Martin's director of tactical missiles and international business development, told Arabian Business that his company had received an international order that was large enough to justify reopening the production line for HIMARS ammunition.

Arabian Business did not report whether this was a reference to the ATACMS or GMLRS production lines, but the DoD announced in May 2015 that Lockheed Martin had been awarded a USD174 million contract to produce an unspecified number of ATACMS missiles for the UAE.

Russia has received the first of the MiG-29SMT 'Fulcrum' multirole fighter aircraft that it ordered in April 2014, MiG Corporation has reported.

The extra 16 aircraft were ordered for the Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS) as a stop-gap measure to compensate for delays to the MiG-35S aircraft that still has yet to be ordered. It is believed that the 16 extra MiG-29s are divided between 14 MiG-29SMT fighters and two MiG-29UB trainers.

Excalibur Goes To Sea: Raytheon Smart Artillery Shoots Back

By Sydney J. Freedberg Jr. on January 12, 2016 at 3:28 PM

[התמונה הבאה מגיעה מקישור שלא מתחיל ב https ולכן לא הוטמעה בדף כדי לשמור על https תקין: http://breakingdefense.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/3/2016/01/Navy-mk45-cannon-firing1-1024x576.jpg]

Navy Mark 45 5-inch cannon firing

Yesterday, prominent defense commentator Loren Thompson wrote an article in Forbes extolling the technology Daniels works on, precision-guided cannon shells — particularly the products of BAE Systems. But Daniels doesn’t work for BAE. He works on Raytheon’s Excalibur smart round, fired 800 times in anger in Iraq and Afghanistan but mentioned zero times in the Forbes article. Having followed Excalibur with interest for years, I reached out to Daniels to balance the scales.

“I disagree…that BAE would have some sort of advantage,” Daniels told me this morning in the Raytheon booth at the Surface Navy Association conference. Yes, BAE is building Navy cannons and advanced projectiles to fire from them (and I’m working on a story about them too). But Raytheon argues Excalibur’s track record with the Army is longer.

“It’s one of those rare instances where you’ve got a proven — combat-proven — production program that can be leveraged by another service,” Daniels told me. “[Other systems], they’re not anywhere near as real as this is.”

Raytheon’s Excalibur N5 smart artillery shell


Excalibur has been in service with the Army since 2007. Some 7,000 of the initial Excalibur 1A model have been built. The upgraded, longer-ranged 1B model entered full-rate production in 2014, with the price dropping to $68,000 a shot, much less than guided missiles. Lately, Raytheon has successfully test-fired its Excalibur N5, redesigned for the Navy’s standard Mark 45 gun.

Obviously, the Army is not the Navy and a 155 millimeter howitzer is not a 5-inch (127 mm) naval cannon. (Interestingly, both weapons are built by BAE). But the land and sea versions of the Excalibur are 70 percent the same, Daniels told me. The software is 99 percent identical. The guidance & navigation unit (GNU) that goes on the nose of the shell is 100 percent identical. In fact, Raytheon’s September live-fire test of the N5 used a guidance kit pulled right from ts existing assembly line for the 1B.

The guidance kit is the hardest part of precision-guided artillery, Daniels said, because you have to make electronics that can still function after being literally fired out of cannon. That shock imposes about 15,000 times the force of gravity from an Army 155 mm howitzer: the Navy Mark 45 imposes slightly less.

Once Excalibur’s out of the barrel, guidance fins pop out of its base. The shell starts in a standard ballistic trajectory but then levels out and flies like a missile, until it reaches the target and turns nose-down to dive-bomb it. As a result, it is both more accurate and longer-range than traditional artillery projectiles.

Cutaway of the Excalibur N5


With today’s unguided shells, the Navy’s Mark 45 can, in theory, fire 13 nautical miles, but in practice it becomes too inaccurate for targets beyond eight nm. The Excalibur N5 would hit targets with precision at 20 to 26 nautical miles — roughly triple the range — depending on which variant of the Mark 45 is firing it. longer barrels allow longer range

Key Points



  • South Korea decommissions a light frigate, a corvette, and four patrol boats
  • The navy is in the process of replacing its frigates, corvettes, and patrol boats with a smaller number of more capable ships
The Republic of Korea Navy (ROKN) has decommissioned six ships, comprising a light frigate, a corvette, and four Chamsuri fast attack patrol boats. The decommissionings took place on 31 December 2015 at Jinhae naval base.

ROKS Seoul (FFG 952), a 102 m, 1,500-tonne Ulsan-class light frigate, was withdrawn after 34 years of service. According to an ROKN statement, Seoul - which was assigned to the ROKN's Third Fleet Command when in service - is scheduled for use as a platform for security education.

The Ulsan class entered service from 1981 onwards, as part of an programme to build indigenous ships, and served as the navy's primary surface ships until the KDX-series destroyers began entering service in the late 1990s. Seven Ulsan frigates remain in service.

The navy also decommissioned the 88 m, 1200-tonne Po Hang-class corvette Kim Chon (PCC 761). The ship, which entered service in 1986, may be used as a training platform or could be transferred to another navy, according to the ROKN statement. Eighteen of the 24 ships-in-class remain in service.

Two of the already-decommissioned corvettes have been transferred to other navies, with the Philippine Navy set to receive Mokpo (PCC 759), while the Peruvian Navy received Kyong Ju (PCC 758) - since renamed BAP Ferré - in October 2015.

The four decommissioned Chamsuri patrol boats - 283, 285, 288, and 291 - appear to be 33 m, 147-tonne variants. The future of the four boats is unclear, although a number of similar hulls have been transferred to other navies after decommissioning. More than 60 of the class remain in service

Key Points



  • GEN III seeker is uniquely configured with a single-element position-sensing detector
  • It was developed to retrofit laser precision into legacy weapons and can be modified for integration with 2.75-inch rockets
Finmeccanica's Land & Naval Division (formerly Selex-ES) in Basildon, United Kingdom has finalised development - and is in low rate initial production of - a new semi-active laser (SAL) seeker solution claimed to deliver high-accuracy laser spot acquisition and tracking in a compact sensor package.

The seeker was designed to inject 'simple plug-and-play' precision accuracy into multiple air-to-surface weapon types currently without terminal guidance, or which require enhanced precision.

According to Finmeccanica, the GEN III seeker is uniquely configured with a single-element position-sensing detector. "Most SAL solutions exploit a quadrant detector solution" as exemplified by Paveway and JDAM [Joint Direct Attack Munition] bombs, and 2.75-inch rockets, John Daly, capability manager for Precision Guidance at Finmeccanica's Land & Naval Division told IHS Jane's . "However, over the past decade we conducted extensive research and evaluated a number of detector solutions to determine what, in our view, would be an optimal SAL solution for use in a number of weapon applications, and opted for the single-element solution."

He explained that a particular advantage of the uniquely configured silicon detector is its inherent accuracy at off-boresight angles and high-resolution angular reporting across a wide field-of-view, which enables the benefits of proportional closed-loop weapon guidance throughout target engagement. He added that the single element is also useful for strap-down seeker applications.

Finmeccanica's resulting design is the subject of patents both granted, and currently under application.

Daly believes that the seeker - which weighs 350 g and measures 152.5 mm long, with a diameter of 51 mm and a typical flange of 76 mm - is the smallest SAL seeker on the market

More details of Saudi Arabia's multi-billion dollar armoured vehicle order have emerged, indicating it includes fire support and infantry fighting vehicle (IFV) variants of the General Dynamics Lands Systems (GDLS) 8x8 Light Armored Vehicle (LAV).

The Canadian government announced what it described as "the largest advanced manufacturing export win in Canada's history" in a 14 February 2014 statement that has now been removed from its website, but provided few details other than saying the "light armoured vehicles" would be designed and made by GDLS Canada.

The Canadian media reported at the time that the contract was worth USD10 billion and could increase to USD13 billion if all options are exercised.

Belgium's Belga news agency reported on 5 January that GDLS Canada had awarded a EUR3.2 billion contract to Belgium's CMI group to provide turrets for the armoured vehicles it is making for Saudi Arabia.

Belga did not identify the turrets or the number that would be delivered, but the size of the deal dovetails with the "order of unprecedented scope and term" that was announced in CMI's 2014 activity report. The report said the company had been subcontracted by an unnamed Canadian vehicle manufacturer to deliver Cockerill CT-CV 105HP and Cockerill Medium Calibre Turret (CMCT) systems, as well as simulators and spares.

The CT-CV 105HP turret has a 105 mm high-pressure rifled gun with an autoloader and can also fire the laser-guided Falarick Gun-Launched Anti-Tank Guided Missile (GLATGM) that was developed by CMI and the Ukraine's State Kyiv Design Bureau (Luch).

The CMCT uses the same 3000 Series architecture and is offered with a range of 25-40 mm cannons made by the US company Orbital ATK and a 7.62 mm coaxial machine gun, with anti-tank missiles, remote control weapon stations, and various defensive aids being options.

CMI said it will deliver the turrets in seven years and the support services, which include training personnel to operate and maintain the systems, over a "far longer" period

Russia orders 50 Su-35S multirole fighters

Nikolai Novichkov, Moscow - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly

13 January 2016

The Russian Aerospace Force (VKS) ordered 50 Sukhoi Su-35S 'Flanker E' multirole fighters from Sukhoi in late December 2015, a United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) source told TASS-DEFENSE.

According to the source, the new order is valued at more than RUB60 billion (USD788 million) and the Komsomolsk-on-Amur Aircraft Plant (KnAAZ, a Sukhoi affiliate) will build the aircraft. Thus, it will have had its hands full until 2020. In addition to this order, the period is to see the execution of China's order for 24 Su-35S's, while the company hopes to sign a contract with Indonesia for 12 aircraft soon. According to the source, initially, the Su-35S program was expected to pay its way after 72 aircraft had been built. If the contract with Indonesia is signed, a total of 134 fighters of the type will have been delivered to the customers before 2020.

According to the UAC source, talks with Algeria on 12 Sukhoi Su-32 tactical bombers - an export variant of the Su-34 'Fullback' - have made good progress, and the country may acquire up to 40 aircraft of the type.

Russia's order in 2009 for 48 Su-35S's has now been fulfilled, with most of the aircraft now delivered. A VKS Su-35S unit in Russia's Eastern Military District started flying the Su-35S in late December 2015, while another unit in the Primorsky Territory is slated to receive Su-35S's in 2016.

The Su-35S is billed by Sukhoi as a heavily upgraded fourth-generation super-maneuverable multirole fighter developed with the use of fifth-generation aircraft technologies. It features a sophisticated avionics suite based on a digital information management system, cutting-edge radar with a long-range aerial target acquisition and increased multiple-target tracking/engagement capabilities, and enhanced thrust-vectoring engines.

Boeing expects to conclude flight trials of its optionally piloted H-6U Unmanned Little Bird (ULB) later this year, a company spokesperson told IHS Jane's on 11 January.

The H-6U, which is an MD 500 Little Bird observation and scout platform fitted with Boeing's Optionally Piloted Vehicle kit, is currently conducting its final flight trials, the company said in a statement. No further details as to the nature of the trials or the company's plans for the platform once the trials are concluded in mid-2016 were disclosed.

"The MD 500 helicopter, with the Optionally Piloted Vehicle kit installed on it, is currently undergoing flight testing. We expect flight tests to be completed in mid-2016," IHS Jane's was told in response to a question on the status of the programme.

Boeing has two ULB helicopters at its Mesa facility in Arizona that it is using on multiple US and international customer technology demonstration programmes, such as automated shipboard launch/recovery, autonomous cargo delivery system, cyber attack resistance, and development of advanced flight control system prototyping. They are also being tested for unmanned kits to potentially convert a variety of helicopters to optionally piloted platforms.

Of all the potential international requirements for unmanned/optionally piloted MD 500 technology, arguably none are as defined or advanced as those of South Korea. Boeing was due to undertake demonstration flights of the ULB for South Korea in late 2015, but it has not said if this has yet happened (these latest unmanned flight trials were originally scheduled to have taken place before the end of 2014 but were understood to have been delayed by certification and clearance issues).

Boeing has previously conducted a demonstration flight of the ULB helicopter for the Republic of Korea Army (RoKA) in the United States in 2012, and in 2013 a memorandum of understanding was signed with Korea Air Aerospace Division (KAL-ASD) to convert an undisclosed number of the RoKA's MD 500 helicopters into unmanned platforms

Ten Technologies the U.S. Military Will Need for the Next War

November 2011

By Eric Beidel, Sandra I. Erwin and Stew Magnuson

Throughout U.S. history, advances in military capability have been fueled by innovation. All branches of the military consistently have managed to use technology in new and creative ways to gain an edge over the enemy.

The wars of the past decade exposed an “innovation gap” that forced the U.S. military to play catch up, and react to enemy tactics — such as roadside bombs and sniper attacks — rather than anticipating them. The Defense Department’s research-and-development apparatus was slow to respond with new and improved weapons based on changing threats. Critics have called for the Pentagon to stop wasting money on science projects that target undefined hypothetical future wars, focus on systems that they know deployed forces need, and to move them to the field in weeks or months, not years or decades. Innovation is not helpful if it’s not assisting troops at war. As many senior Pentagon officials have noted, an 80-percent solution that can be available in months is better than a perfect outcome that could take years or decades to achieve.

In this special report, National Defense identifies 10 key technologies that U.S. forces likely will need to fight the next war. Regardless of where or when that conflict might be, there is widespread consensus that advances in certain key areas would benefit U.S. forces.

Examples are faster and quieter helicopters, advanced crowd-control weapons, lighter infantry equipment that doesn’t overburden troops, ultra-light trucks and better battlefield communications. In the maritime realm, Navy leaders have for years been seeking stealthy mini-submarines that can be remotely operated, and fast bulletproof power boats for anti-piracy and coastal security operations.

Accurate intelligence about the enemy is always on the military’s wish list, and success in future conflicts will require technologies that can perform persistent surveillance to help identify enemies and friendly forces. Robots that can operate autonomously also will be essential tools of war, not necessarily to fire weapons, but to conduct mundane tasks such as delivering cargo.

Also on the wish list is renewable energy that reduces the military’s dependence on fuel supplies. Transporting fuel to war zones has become one of the most dangerous missions because enemies know that it is the lifeblood of the U.S. military machine. Almost anything that helps reduce that demand is likely to be welcome.

The list of 10 technologies that follows is in no particular ranking order

Russia confirms order from Algeria for 12 Su-34 fighter aircraft

Algeria has ordered a batch of 12 Sukhoi Su-34 Fullback fighter aircraft produced by the Russian aircraft manufacturer Novosibirsk Aircraft Production Association (NAPO) to replace its ageing fleet of Soviet-era MiG-25s, which are long over-due for retirement from service, as part of an ongoing force modernization program.

A RuAF Sukhoi Su-34 Fullback strike fighter aircraft


In an interview published by Russian-language newspaper Vedomosti on New Year's Day, Sergey Smirnov, the director general of the Novosibirsk Aircraft Production Association (NAPO), confirmed that the company, which produces the Sukhoi Su-34, received a formal request for the export version of the aircraft.

In the meantime, the Su-34's combat experience will allow NAPO to upgrade the warplane so that it could reach its full potential. "These modifications could include additional electronic warfare (EW), intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) and other capabilities added via external pods," Smirnov said.

The Russian Armed Forces have received a total of 83 Su-34s, costing $36 million apiece, and are expected to ink a deal for the delivery of over 100 Su-34s in the next 2-3 years. At least eight warplanes are believed to be engaged in Moscow's counterterrorism operation in Syria.

Poland is seeking to adopt a new sniper rifle as part of its modernization program. The new rifle, the tender for which was released earlier this week, will fire .338 Lapua Magnum and, with a conversion kit, 7.6x51mm NATO.

Jane’s reports:


Poland has begun a tender for 150 bolt-action sniper rifles chambered in 8.6×70 mm (.338 Lapua Magnum).
The weapon will be the first .338 Lapua Magnum rifle in Polish service and is to feature an exchangeable barrel, bolt head and magazine so it can use the cheaper 7.62×51 mm NATO round for training.
Bidders are to respond by 5 November, with the Accuracy International AXMC, Barrett MRAD, SAKO TRG M10, and Voere LBW-M2 rifles expected to compete.
None of Poland’s small arms manufacturers offer such a rifle.

The tender also includes 50,000 ball-type 8.6×70 mm rounds, and day/night weapon scopes.


The new Polish rifles will follow the trend of powerful large-caliber sniper rifles that has been developing since the release of the .338 Lapua Magnum cartridge in 1989. The caliber offers substantially better accuracy and ballistics than either the smaller .308 Winchester round, or the larger .50 BMG round, while still being accommodated by a reasonably-sized bolt action rifle

Riyadh Turns Down Pentagon's Offer for Combat Ships

תמונה שהועלתה על ידי גולש באתר ולכן אין אנו יכולים לדעת מה היא מכילה

Saudi Arabia last week rejected an offer from the US Navy to build four frigates – the latest move in an ongoing negotiation over price and schedule.

The ships, known as the Multi-Mission Surface Combatant (MMSC), are the largest part of Saudi Arabia’s $16 billion plan to replace and modernize the kingdom’s eastern fleet in the Persian Gulf.

The modernization plan includes the four frigates, along with six smaller corvette-sized ships, all operating Lockheed Martin Sikorsky MH-60R helicopters. The helicopters are to cost $1.9 billion. A number of smaller vessels and aircraft also are in the plan.

Negotiations have been underway between Washington and Riyadh over the MMSC package, which includes weapons, logistics, training and other services. The Saudis declined the latest offer last week, sources told Defense News.

Reportedly, the Saudis balked at the price tag for the MMSC package – thought to be between $3 and $4 billion – and were unhappy with the time it would take to complete detail design of the ships, carry out systems integration, build the vessels, deliver them and install infrastructure improvements in the kingdom.

The first ship would be delivered in about seven years, which the Saudis reportedly think is excessive, a source told Defense News.

Washington is expected to return to the bargaining table with counter offers.

The Indian Navy's second Project 28 (P 28) Kamorta-class anti-submarine warfare (ASW) corvette, INS Kadmatt (P 29), was commissioned into service at Visakhapatnam on 7 January.

The corvette was delivered to the navy by Garden Reach Shipbuilders and Engineers (GRSE) on 26 November 2015.

The P 28 corvettes, built from locally sourced DMR 249A steel, are largely fitted with licence-built weapons and sensors and indigenous combat management and fire-control systems. According to the navy, "about 90 percent" of the ship is indigenous; it is unclear, however, what metrics have been used to measure this.

The ships' design also contains several signature management features, including an 'x'-shaped hull form to reduce radar cross-section, a raft-mounted propulsion system to reduce vibration, and an infrared signature suppression system.

Displacing 3,500 tonnes, the 109 m-long corvettes have a top speed in excess of 25 kt and a range of 3,450 n miles. The ships' complement is 13 officers and 180 sailors.

The ASW-focused combat system includes four heavyweight torpedo tube launchers and a pair of 12-barreled RBU6000 rocket depth-charge launchers featuring several design improvements incorporated by Larsen & Toubro. It is not known if the locally developed Mareech anti-torpedo decoy system has been installed. The fire-control system is the Bharat Electronics IAC Mod C system.

While the ships are fitted with a Humsa-NG bow-mounted sonar, an Atlas Elektronik towed array sonar set will be fitted in due course. The navy added that the ships are also to be fitted with vertical launch surface-to-air missiles.

The next two ships-in-class, Kiltan and Kavaratti , are currently fitting out at GRSE in Kolkata. These two ships have a composite superstructure, supplied by Sweden's Saab Kockums, designed to reduce top weight. They are likely to enter service in late 2016 and 2017

Raytheon Missile systems will provide precision guided mortar bombs to the US Marine Corps, under a contract worth $98 million awarded this week by the Pentagon. The contract with the U.S. Marine Corps has a maximum 60-month effective period, with five 12-month ordering periods. Raytheon’s PERM team has partnered with Israeli Military Industries to provide the weapon systems. As such, 39% of the work will be performed in Israel by IMI and its subcontractors. The Marine Corps plans to field 3,113 rounds beginning in 2018

PERM gives a combat commander the ability to destroy enemy targets at longer ranges using fewer rounds. A typical mortar round travels about seven to eight kilometers. The PERM rounds can reach distances up to 16 kilometers. The basic version selected by the corps is GPS guided with accuracy of 10 meters(industry officials place it within 2 meters). PERM also increases the lethality of the 120mm mortar by as much as 250 percent. In the future Raytheon plans to add semi-active laser guidance to its PERM rounds, enabling mortar teams to hit moving targets designated by forward or airborne target acquisition teams.

The new GPS guided munitions will enable the corps’ M327 rifled 120mm mortar units called ‘Expeditionary Fire Support Systems’ (EFSS) to double the range they can engage targets, and enable those units to hit their intended targets with maximum accuracy and efficiency. EFSS consists of two Internally Transportable-Light Strike Vehicles carrying a mortar tube and ammunition supply that can be moved as a single package in the belly of an MV-22B Osprey or slung under a CH-53E Super Stallion.

In a recent test series PERM munitions were employed in field tests in mountainous firing range, validating the munitions’ maximum and minimum range performance, with demonstrated accuracy levels exceeding the services’ requirements. A unique capability, provided by the efficient aerodynamic design combining tail fins and flaps in the mid-body, enables complex trajectory shaping techniques enabling the round to hit target in steep reverse slopes in mountainous terrain – a task that is often impossible to accomplish by other projectiles, using ballistic trajectory.

These smart munitions comprise IMI’s ‘Pure Heart’ as their ‘brain’ that matches a powerful digital processor and guidance systems, with Raytheon’s GPS based navigation solution, all packed in a compact, lightweight case designed to endure extremely high loads.

Luftwaffe’s Tornado detachment at Holloman AFB might cease operations in 2019

The German Air Force has a detachment of Tornado fighter-bombers at Holloman Air Force Base in the United States. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the German Air Force Flying Training Center at Holloman. During the annual New Year’s reception by the center, the commanding officer of the center told the crowd that the contract to keep the Tornados at Holloman might not be renewed this year.

The contract is due for renewal this year as the current contract will expire in 2019. Col. Stephan Breidenbach said keeping the small number of jets at Holloman “is a big logistical challenge and very cost intensive.”

Therefore, the Chief of Staff of the German Air Force has recommended to consolidate all Tornodo air wings in Germany. But Breidenbach added that the Ministry of Defense will make the final call.

Huntington Ingalls Industries in discussions to put missile defense radars, lasers on San Antonio-class LPDs

At the Surface Navy Association symposium in Arlington, Virginia, an official from Huntington Ingalls Industries told reporters that his company is in discussions with government officials on the possibility of fitting the San Antonio-class LPD with missile defense radars and laser weapons.

תמונה שהועלתה על ידי גולש באתר ולכן אין אנו יכולים לדעת מה היא מכילה
By Mass Communication Specialist 3rd Class John K. Hamilton, USN (Official U.S. Navy Photograph) [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons

Brian Cuccias, corporate vice president at HII and president of Ingalls Shipbuilding, said the design features of the amphibious transport docks make them suitable for carrying massive radars thanks to the ship’s configuration.

“When you close in the well deck of the LPD ship you expand that capability to take a lot of weight, and the stability on LPD is such you can actually put weight up high” to install large radars.

Cuccias also mentioned that the LPD has ample internal volume for generating power required by missile defense radars and laser weapons.

“You can put a pretty significant power generation plant or plants on the platform and you could put pretty significant cooling capabilities on that platform,” he said. “And the platform, because of its internal volume and because of its stability, can handle it without radical changes to the ship.”

Indian DRDO Tests Locally Developed Thermobaric Anti-Tank Round

By News Desk - Jan 11, 2016

The new round employs a fuel-air explosive (thermobaric) chemical compound designed to defeat ballistic armor and fortification (such as concrete bunkers).

India’s Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) successfully conducted test firing of new penetration-blast and Thermobaric (TB) Ammunition for 120mm tank guns used on the indigenous Arjun Tank at the Chandipur test range in Odisha, India.

The new round that employs a fuel-air explosive (thermobaric) chemical compound is designed to penetrate and defeat ballistic armor or fortification (such as concrete bunkers) and explode inside the target, devastating it from the inside with the thermobaric enhanced-blast effect.

The PCB (Penetration-Cum Blast) round was developed at the DRDO Armament Research and Development Establishment (ARDE) High Energy Materials Research Laboratory (HEMRL) in Pune, which is engaged in the development of fuel-air and thermobaric explosives for application in guided missiles and bombs.

The MOD announcement said the trials were conducted jointly with Army and were aimed to demonstrate the effectiveness of the ammunition on derelict (T55) tanks fitted with instrumentation to measure the shocks, blast pressure and temperature at various locations and on advanced imaging systems.

Russia will deploy Ka-52 combat helicopters in Syria to protect Khmeimim air base

Jan 15, 2016
Russian Kamov Ka-52 (NATO reporting name: Hokum-B) attack/scout helicopters carrying the Vitebsk electronic warfare system will deploy to Syria to provide security for the Russian task force at Khmeimim air base in Latakia, a defense industry source told TASS on Friday, Jan. 15, 2016.

“Ka-52 helicopters equipped with the Vitebsk electronic warfare system will be deployed to Syria soon. They will not only control the situation around the Khmeimim airfield, but also conduct combat search and rescue[CSAR] operations,” the source said.

He stressed that the Ka-52 deployment to Syria would be the first time the type has been used on a combat operation. The decision to send Ka-52s to a war zone also is due to the need to test them under such conditions. In addition, the Vitebsk EW system will be tested there too.

Thus, the Ka-52 will become another Russian-made type of armament, which baptism of fire will take place as part of the operation against the Russia-banned Islamic State terrorist group in Syria. According to military experts, Russia continues the testing of its latest weaponry during the counterterrorist operation in the Middle East

Saudi Arabia wants to buy a Leclerc main battle tanks

Jan 16, 2016

According to French media reports, Saudi Arabia is exploring the possibility of buying several hundred tanks, and an interest in tanks Leclerc, which is already in service with the UAE.

This was reported by a source in the French defense industry. According to the source, this allegedly negotiated with the manufacturer of these tanks by Nexter.

Saudi Arabia is currently in service with about 600 American-made tanks (200 M1A2 Abrams and M60A3 400).

The Char Leclerc, is a main battle tank (MBT) built by GIAT, now Nexter of France. It was named in honour of General Philippe Leclerc de Hauteclocque who led the French element of the drive towards Pariswhile in command of the Free French 2nd Armoured Division (2ème DB) in World War II.

The Leclerc is in service with the French Army and the army of the United Arab Emirates. In production since 1991, the Leclerc entered French service in 1992, replacing the AMX 30 as the country’s main armoured platform. With production now complete, the French Army has a total of 406 Leclercs and the United Arab Emirates Army has 388.

Denmark Orders 309 Piranha 5s

By Tamir Eshel - Dec 11, 2015

תמונה שהועלתה על ידי גולש באתר ולכן אין אנו יכולים לדעת מה היא מכילה
Piranhas-5

Copenhagen, Denmark: Denmark has placed an order for 309 Piranha 5 armored personnel carriers (APCs) from General Dynamics Land Systems (GDLS) Europe, in a deal worth $662 million (DKK4.5 billion). The first vehicles to be delivered in 2018 will be used for training; initial operational capability (IOC) is expected in 2019, with deliveries continued at least through 2023. The current order includes options to cover the additional 150 vehicles that could be acquired in a follow-on phase.
The new Piranhas will replace the 450 M-113s currently in service. The Danish military is expecting to upgrade some of its existing M-113G3 vehicles into a much heavier G4 variant. This upgrade began in 2009 but realized to be unsuitable for fielding. Additional modifications were required for the vehicle’s acceptance.

The new 8x8 APC will operate within the armoured and armoured infantry battalions of the Royal Danish Army's two combat brigades (the 1st and 2nd). As such it will serve alongside the country's Krauss-Maffei Wegmann Leopard 2A5 main battle tanks (MBTs), BAE Systems Hägglunds CV9035 infantry fighting vehicles (IFVs), and its older GDELS-MOWAG Piranha III APCs

Designed for gross vehicle weight of 30 tons, Piranha 5 can carry a payload of 13 tons, including add on armor, turrets, troops and gear. The vehicle is designed with a modular integrated protection approach.

M-113G4

According to current plans, some of M113s will undergo modifications into the ‘improved G4’ configuration, to provide the Army to meet urgent requirements in the 2016-2020 interim phase, until the Piranhas become operational. These conversions will include hull extension (use of six road wheels) and improved suspension, improved blast protection with additional belly plate and suspended seats. The vehicle’s height was also increased to improve crew survivability after mine explosion. All those additions have increased the vehicle’s weight from nine to 20 tons

Turkey deployed near the Syria border «Bozena 5» unmanned mine clearance system

Jan 19, 2016




Turkey deployed near the Syria border «Bozena 5» unmanned mine clearance system.

The «Bozena 5» medium demining system deployed on Jarablus border. It has been speculated that these machines have been deployed before a Turkish intervention to create a safe zone. This speculation would be hard to fathom since Russia has warned against any further Turkish intervention in Syria.

Unmanned ground vehicle BOZENA 5 is designed for clearance of all conventional antipersonnel and antitank land mines and for IED removal assistance. Its approach of SAFETY is based on remote control operation (range up to 5 000 m) and on the noteworthy blast resistance (9 kg TNT). BOZENA 5 can basically operate with both – the Flail and Tiller tools for effective mine clearance.

BOZENA 5 shall be suitable for clearance of large mine affected areas due to its potential, size and weight which is twice as big as previous generations of BOZENA machines. BOZENA 5 system consists of Prime mover and detachable working unit, basically the Flail or Tiller for demining works. Furthermore, its capabilities are enriched by a field-proven concept of VERSATILITY with wide range of accessories and attachments available for C-IED (counter improvised explosive devices) operations and for field construction works

Estonia buys extra CV90s from Norway

Nicholas de Larrinaga, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
11 January 2016


[התמונה הבאה מגיעה מקישור שלא מתחיל ב https ולכן לא הוטמעה בדף כדי לשמור על https תקין: http://www.janes.com/images/assets/123/57123/1323097_-_main.jpg]

Estonia has purchased 35 CV90 hulls from Norway Source: IHS/Patrick Allen

Key Points
  • Estonia has bought 35 CV90 vehicle hulls from Norway
  • The supplementary vehicles are in addition to the 44 CV90s purchased from the Netherlands in 2014
Estonia has bought additional CV90 armoured fighting vehicles (AFV) for its armed forces, signing a contract for 35 more CV90 hulls from Norway on 8 January.

The additional units will complement the 44 CV9035NL infantry fighting vehicles (IFVs) that Estonia purchased from the Netherlands in December 2014.

The contract was signed on 8 January during a visit to Norway by Jonatan Vseviov, the undersecretary for defence planning at the Estonian Ministry of Defence (MoD). The total cost of the purchase was EUR600,000, an MoD spokesperson told IHS Jane's on 11 January.

Estonia has only purchased the hulls of the CV90s from Norway, as the CV9030N variant of the Norwegian IFV uses a different (30 mm) cannon from the 35 mm cannon of the Dutch CV90 IFVs that Estonia already purchased. Instead, Estonia is planning to convert these additional Norwegian CV90 hulls into combat support (CS) and combat service support (CSS) vehicle variants. They will complement the CV9035 IFVs within the Scout battalion of the Estonian 1st Infantry Brigade, the country's only full-readiness professional military unit.

The MoD is understood to be planning for this conversion work to be made in Estonia.

Mabus: Get Moving On That F-18 Sale To Kuwait

By Sydney J. Freedberg Jr. on January 14, 2016

Mabus called for efforts to accelerate FMS process

SURFACE NAVY ASSOCIATION: Navy Secretary Ray Mabus wants the arms export bureaucracy to get move on and approve Boeing‘s “crucial” sale of Super Hornet fighters to Kuwait.

The Kuwait deal is for 28 fighters, with an option for 12 more. That’s not a huge sale, but in and of itself, it’s enough to keep the Boeing production line active for 14 to 20 months.

“It’s a frustrating process for all parties involved and it speaks to the need to do something about the whole [export control] process,” Mabus told reporters after his remarks to the Surface Navy Association conference. “I don’t think that there’s been any particular slowdown with this program. [There’s] just the long torturous process you’ve got to go through to do any of this, to do any international sale, whether to an ally or not.”

Reform is much needed, Mabus said, but it’s not happening: “I think you see efforts from time to time, just none has been particularly successful so far.”

Mabus doesn’t control the process — the Office of the Secretary of Defense, the Departments of Commerce or State, and the White House all must approve arms exports. But the US Navy has a double stake in Boeing’s success.

Raytheon successfully conducts active seeker test for Tomahawk Block IV

14 January 2016

[התמונה הבאה מגיעה מקישור שלא מתחיל ב https ולכן לא הוטמעה בדף כדי לשמור על https תקין: http://image.digitalinsightresearch.in/uploads/imagelibrary/nri/naval/news/Toma.jpeg]


Raytheon has successfully completed a captive flight test of a seeker designed for the Tomahawk Block IV cruise missile.
The seeker will allow Tomahawk to employ moving targets on land and at sea.

The test has been carried out with a modified Tomahawk missile nose cone, mounted on a T-39 test aircraft, and installed with a seeker integrated with the firm's new modular and multi-mode processor.

"Tomahawk is evolving to meet the US Navy's need to add offensive punch and expand the overall power of the fleet worldwide."
Over a three-week period, the aircraft piloted profiles that simulated the Tomahawk flight regime to move targets on land and in the maritime environment.

Raytheon Air Warfare Systems vice-president Mike Jarrett said: "Tomahawk is evolving to meet the US Navy's need to add offensive punch and expand the overall power of the fleet worldwide.

"The seeker test has successfully demonstrated the superior capability and maturity of our seeker technology against a variety of targets that resemble today's threats."

In June 2014, Raytheon Missile Systems successfully demonstrated capabilities of seeker components in a similar captive flight test, while in December, captive flight test of the seeker showed technology readiness level six of the seeker components required to meet the moving land and maritime strike requirements.

Tomahawk Block IV missile is a surface and submarine-launched, precision strike and stand-off weapon, with a range of about 1,000 statute miles.

The missile, which is designed for long-range precision strike missions against high-value and heavily defended targets, is integrated on all major US surface combatants, as well as the US and the UK sub-surface platforms.

Defence & Security News - Russia
Over 40 units of Russia’s advanced rocket launchers equipped wit the new Tornado-S MLRS (Multiple Launch Rocket System) will enter into service with the Western Military District’s (WMD) artillery and motorized infantry formations, district spokesman Col. Igor Muginov said Saturday, January 16, 2016.


[התמונה הבאה מגיעה מקישור שלא מתחיל ב https ולכן לא הוטמעה בדף כדי לשמור על https תקין: http://www.armyrecognition.com/images/stories/east_europe/russia/artillery_vehicle/tornado-s/Tornado-S_MLRS_300mm_Multiple_Launch_Rocket_System_Russia_Russian_army_defense_industry_640_001.jpg]

The new Tornado-S 300mm MLRS(Multiple Launch Rocket system)


"The unique long-range 300-mm Tornado-S multiple launch rocket system can fire at a range of 120 kilometers [75 miles] and hit an area of over 60 hectares [150 acres]," Muginov said.

The Tornado-S was introduced in the Russian army as a replacement for the BM-30 Smerch in 2012. It uses rockets with the same caliber but has been enhanced to take advantage of Russia's proprietary satellite navigation network. The 9A53-S Tornado-S is an upgraded version of the BM-30 Smerch using 2x6 or 2x4 300mm rocket launcher tubes mounted on MZKT-79306 military truck chassis.

The Tornado-S’ is equipped with a new automated guidance system, a key characteristic, allowing for improved accuracy and simultaneous target data calculations.
It is able to fire single rockets as well as full salvos of 12 guided rockets.

The spokesman added that the new launchers boast travel-to-combat mode deployment capabilities at a significantly reduced time.

Cluster warheads with self-guided multi-purpose submunitions fitted on Tornado-G systems are able to penetrate infantry and armored vehicles.

The cutting edge Tornado-S and Tornado-G systems are expected to replace Grad and Smerch launchers by 2020, as part of Russia's large-scale rearmament program.

Israel Aims For New Era in Targeting and Precision Israel pushes the state of the art in weapons and sensors

Jan 14, 2016 Bill Sweetman | Aviation Week & Space Technology

Massive Precision

Rafael’s Spice-250 guided bomb, now in its final stages of development, will allow fighters to perform accurate standoff launch-and-leave attacks against an unprecedented number of targets. Coupled with the company’s new Litening 5 targeting pod, it gives the fighter the ability to designate its own targets well beyond effective laser range.

These are two of a number of weapons and systems that constitute new-technology reconnaissance-strike complexes emerging from Israel’s combat experience and intended to attack hard-to-find targets with minimal collateral damage. Spice-250, for instance, has an 80-kg (176-lb.) warhead, while Israel Aerospace Industries’ Harop loitering weapon—in full production for the Israel Defense Forces and for export—carries a 15-kg lethal payload.

In the 250-lb. class, Spice-250 is somewhat similar in mission and size to the Raytheon Small-Diameter Bomb Increment 2 but has a proven guidance technique, already in service on the larger Spice-1000 and -2000 that is different in principle and dispenses with active radar. It is an electro-optical scene-matching system, using a dual-band (daylight and infrared) sensor, and its distinguishing feature is that it does not aim at the pixel containing the target or use geographical coordinates.

Instead, the system is programmed before launch with a set of images of points surrounding the target, derived from satellite or airborne imagery and converted into a map with the aid of a terrain database. The guidance algorithm then locates the target by reference to the relative position of those images. According to Rafael engineers, this approach has several advantages.

The target itself may be camouflaged, but the guidance system can select high-contrast points around it. The system will store more points than it needs for accurate target engagement, so that even if the target or some of the aim points are obscured by cloud or smoke, the target can still be hit. Because the guidance system focuses on specific points in the target scene, it is not confused by extraneous changes in the picture. “We can live with a 50% change in the scene, because we’re not looking at the target,” a Rafael engineer observes.

Rafael claims a 1.5-meter (5-ft.) circular error probability, independent of range—Spice-250 will glide as far as 100 km (62 mi.)—and notes that the image-based guidance system does not require the capability to georeference satellite navigation signals, a capacity not all nations possess. A key requirement for the Spice family was independence from GPS or other satellite navigation systems, because these were considered likely to be jammed or otherwise unavailable in a conflict

Rounding out the Spice-250 guidance system’s modes are semiactive laser homing—if a designation source is available—and a two-way data link that provides damage assessment, a moving-target capability outside laser range, and the ability to abort an attack (for example, to avoid collateral damage if noncombatants enter the target area during an engagement). The weapon is designed for use with a four-round Smart Quad Rack that includes the mission planning processor and data link, with front and rear antennas for 360-deg. coverage. An F-16 can carry 16 weapons, and an F-15I can carry seven racks and 28 rounds, creating what Rafael calls “mass precision” capability.

Litening 5, which started flight tests last year and is expected to enter service by 2018, complements the new weapons. It has new optics with a larger aperture and zoom range, and introduces a third operating band—the shortwave infrared (SWIR) band, about 1.5 microns. SWIR operates well in nighttime conditions, but it’s most important attribute is that it is absorbed less by atmospheric moisture than visible light (0.5-0.7 microns) and provides longer oblique range than either midwave IR or daylight high-definition TV. According to Rafael, Litening 5 will be able to detect and track vehicle targets at ranges of up to 60 km, using an ultra telephoto SWIR sensor with a 0.3-deg. field of view and new automatic moving-target-indication algorithm.

Longer range changes the pod’s role. “This is more than a small step,” says a Rafael executive. “It goes from being a laser targeting pod to a standoff, multi weapon pod.” The 60-km range is beyond the reach of accurate laser designation, because of low-altitude atmospheric absorption and distortion, and geometrical “smearing” of the laser spot along the beam axis. The pod uses Rafael’s MatchGuide software to generate the multipoint template for Spice guidance.

Long-range precision targeting and reconnaissance is also the role of the M-19HD sensor turret, from Israel Aerospace Industries’ Tamam Division and in production for the new Super Heron UAV and other applications.

The 19-in. turret is slightly flattened to ease ground-clearance issues. Behind the large-aperture, wide-zoom-range Newtonian-telescope optical system is a complete array of sensors—high-definition day and night sensors and SWIR—and the system include an eye-safe laser rangefinder and laser designator.

Not surprisingly, a Tamam engineer lists stabilization of the long-focus optics—carried by a diesel-powered UAV—as a big challenge. But he shifts quickly to a different topic, the software challenges of sensor fusion, image processing and exploitation in meeting the specific requirements of intelligence-gathering and targeting: “It’s not National Geographic”; that is, it involves more than just acquiring a picture. “It’s a real art, and there are only four or five players worldwide who can do it,” he says. “It’s a game of understanding the nature of the problem, which is not obvious.” And as a military tool, the system “must be easy to use,” he notes.

The military user needs to know the exact location of objects in the picture. “We know where we are, but we don’t have a digital terrain model for the entire world,” the engineer says.

The basic optics are good enough to see colors clearly at 40-km slant range in daytime mode. However, by using an adaptive color enhancement program, it’s easier to see small details—wires and poles, for instance—in the scene. SWIR can be fused into the image to penetrate haze—providing a “defog” mode—but tends to be noisy, requiring more custom processing.

A turbulence mitigation mode reduces the effect of heat haze, difficult to do but vital at long slant ranges. For the operator, “working for 2 or 3 hr. with a turbulent image is a huge headache,” the engineer says. The U.S. was using neural-net processing in the 1990s to correct for atmospheric distortion in overhead images, but oblique multispectral video is a far bigger challenge. “It’s similar to the software that we use to auto track targets at sea,” the engineer says. “Nothing in the natural sea environment has straight lines.”

Finally—since the M-19HD generates a vast amount of raw data—the system manages the use of the data link, tracking targets automatically and sending imagery as required. All this advanced processing can be ported from the top-of-the-line M-19HD to other Tamam payloads.

Washington Left in the Dust: Russia Flies Strategic Space Warfare Missile

Moscow carried out the first successful flight test of its new anti-satellite missile last month, becoming just the second nation to arm its military with space warfare weapons.

Russia's direct ascent anti-satellite missile, known as Nudol, was successfully tested on November 18, according to defense officials familiar with reports of the test. It was the first successful test in three attempts, the Washington Free Beacon reported.

Russia now joins China as the only nations with strategic space warfare weapons. In October, China conducted a flight test of its anti-satellite missile, the Dong Neng-3 direct ascent missile.

Analysts say anti-satellite missiles could cripple US intelligence, navigation, and communications capabilities that are critical for both military operations and civilian infrastructure.

The Russian test is a concern for Washington, Representative Mike Pompeo, a Kansas Republican, told the paper.

"As President Obama cuts our defense budget and seeks to ally with Putin, the Russians continue to develop their technological abilities to weaponize space and to take out our national technical means – kinetically and through cyber," said Pompeo, a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

"We can foolishly turn a blind eye to these developments, or acknowledge this threat and develop our own capabilities to ensure that our satellites – military and commercial – are not susceptible to attack or blackmail."

Former Pentagon official Mark Schneider said the Russian test highlights the failure of the United States to prepare for space warfare.

"There is an enormous asymmetry in play regarding space weapons," said Schneider, now with the National Institute for Public Policy.

"For decades the Congress has prevented the US from putting weapons in space and even developing a ground-based ASAT capability," Schneider said. "There is no such constraint upon the Russians and Russia violates arms control treaties when this is in their interest to do so and they find ample opportunity to do this."

A February 2015 unclassified Defense Intelligence Agency report to the Congress stated that "Chinese and Russian military leaders understand the unique information advantages afforded by space systems and are developing capabilities to deny US use of space in the event of a conflict," Schneider added.

Finmeccanica Unit Claims Counter-Drone Breakthrough

By Richard Whittle on January 19, 2016 at 4:29 AM

One of today’s toughest defense problems is drones. But not what the Air Force likes to call Remotely Piloted Aircraft that carry missiles and bombs. The bigger threat – one that worries law enforcement and the Secret Service as much as the Pentagon – is drones like the hundreds of thousands Santa brought to kids of all ages last month. Say a DJI Phantom 3 Standard Quadcopter Drone with 2.7K HD Video Camera, selling on Amazon these days for around $500.

They’re easy to buy, they’re simple to fly, they’re very hard to detect, they can carry different payloads, and they’re proliferating incredibly quickly,” said Steve Williams, capability manager for the electronic warfare unit of Italian conglomerate Finmeccanica’s Selex ES Ltd subsidiary in the United Kingdom

State-of-the-art robotic demining systems have been put into service at Russia's Southern Military District, news reports said.

Servicemen from Russia's Southern Military District have now got their hands on the Uran-6 sophisticated robotic demining system, Russian newspaper Rossiyskaya Gazeta reported.

The Uran-6 is a multipurpose system which is powerful enough to replace 20 sappers and which can be remotely operated from a safe distance of about one kilometer.

Equipped with bulldozer blades and trawls, the Uran-6 detects, identifies and destroys mines containing up to 60 kilograms of TNT.

Depending on the tasks assigned, sappers will be able to use one of the five sweeping devices of the 20-ton robot, according to the Rossiyskaya Gazeta.

Despite such a heavy weight, running the Uran-6 is an easy job, the newspaper said, adding that quick identification of mines is the robot's primary feature.

For example, this robot system is capable of distinguishing an air bomb from an artillery shell or an anti-tank mine, something that the Rossiyskaya Gazeta said sappers have never seen before. In addition, the Uran-6 can destroy an explosive device with special weapons, which adds significantly to extending the robot's service life-span.

The new system is currently used by a 300-stong sapper brigade of the Southern Military District dealing with the demining of some areas in the Russian Caucasus republics of Chechnya and Ingushetia.

North Korea faked the video of SLBM launch, missile exploded a few seconds into the test.

The folks over at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies, analyzed the recent Submarine Launched Ballistic Missile (SLBM) tested shown on North Korean television last week, and they concluded that the test was a failure and Pyongyang had manipulated the video in an attempt to show the launch of the KN-11 was a success.

Four clips of the launch were shown to the world but the analysts found that two were actually mirrors of each other and launches are either slowed down or speed up. By examining the footage frame by frame, they discover evidence suggesting the explosion offering after the missile was ejected out of the water.

And the last clip with the missile allegedly rocketing upwards into the upper atmosphere, it was actually a Scud missile testing back in 2014.

Navy Exploring More Uses for Futuristic Rail Gun Technology

11.14.2016 | by Hope Hodge Seck

An aggressive effort to make the U.S. Navy more lethal and efficient will include experiments with new uses for missiles and application of new rail gun technology to smaller weapons systems, the service's director of surface warfare said Tuesday.

Amid a rapidly changing global environment in which Navy technology was fast being outpaced, Read Adm. Peter Fanta said the service was adopting a philosophy of increased lethality and "three ways to kill everything."

"I realize that might not be the nicest way to talk about things, but folks, our job is to kill people and break their toys," he told an audience at the annual Surface Navy Association symposium near Washington, D.C. "There's nothing else in the world that matters."

Among projects in the works for the Navy is the development of new gun rounds, including the possibility of a smaller version of the electromagnetic projectile launching technology used by the rail gun weapon now in development. The rail gun, which can hurl a projectile at well over 5,000 miles per hour, is being evaluated for possible mounting on a Zumwalt-class destroyer by the mid-2020s.

"When we take that projectile with the rail gun, why not make it small enough to put in a five-inch round ... with a couple of hundred five-inch rounds that now can shoot something as far, almost as accurately as a rail gun?" Fanta suggested.

While he said some of Navy's testing and evaluation efforts were classified, Fanta said the service was looking at new rounds for existing weapons in the fleet that were based on "leap-ahead technologies" such as the rail gun.

"We're learning to build how we're operating, how we're testing and we're developing those capabilities in the rail gun and we're expanding that to the rest of the fleet," he said. "It would be a shame if we took all that science and all that engineering and just left it for the science project that will become operational in the future instead of tacking as much as we can onto the current weapon."

And development of new rounds was just one line of effort in a push to get more out of the Navy's weapons.

Fanta also reaffirmed plans to install an over-the-horizon surface-to-surface missile on a littoral combat ship later this year, an effort he first announced last October. He referred to an early 2015 experiment in which a Tomahawk cruise missile launched from a destroyer hit a moving target at sea. Why, he asked, could the system not be adapted to find moving targets on land as well?

"I got it, it's not perfect, it doesn't meet the ideal ... [but] let's change the payloads, let's change the sensors, we've done this already," Fanta said

DARPA, Northrop Move to Develop VTOL Aircraft

Christopher P. Cavas 5:06 p.m. EST December 29, 2015
Unmanned tailsitter aircraft could prove a prototype for ship-based use.

Northrop Grumman's TERN concept is essentially a flying wing. Note the wheels for vertical takeoff and landing from ships with helicopter decks, such as the destroyers pictured. The aircraft is intended to be armed with air-to-ground missiles, as shown.(Photo: DARPA/Northrop Grumman)

WASHINGTON — The Convair XFY-1 Pogo of the 1950s is one of those famous aviation “funnies” – a weird, experimental aircraft intended to take off and land vertically. The “tailsitter” aircraft might have been the prototype for a new class of fighter that could take off and land from almost any ship with a flat deck.

While there were many technical hurdles, there was one problem that never quite found a solution – while a pilot could strap in and take off straight up, his ability to make a vertical, over-the-shoulder landing was a whole lot harder. The project was dropped in 1956.

But the advent of unmanned aerial vehicles means only the machine, not the pilot, has to look backwards to land, and a new project is in development to field an aircraft that could fly from warships with a small flight deck.

Known as TERN, for Tactically Exploited Reconnaissance Node, the project is a joint program between the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and the US Navy’s Office of Naval Research. Northrop Grumman was recently chosen to build a full-scale demonstrator system of the medium-altitude, long-endurance unmanned aerial system (UAS).

We are working on seeker technology that would enable an Anti-Surface Warfare mission set” said Paul Daniels, business development senior manager at Raytheon for the Excalibur weapon system. The first seeker being developed is a laser seeker. The other, newer one is the Millimeter Waver Radar.

Details are limited but we were explained that the Millimeter Waver Radar seeker would be best in adverse weather, against moving targets at sea, thanks to a fire and forget capability. "This would allow the naval force to address a swarm of enemy fast attack craft and fire very rapidly at these incoming boats"according to Daniels
.


Raytheon's 127 mm Excalibur N5 is a naval variant of the combat proven 155 mm 1B used by land forces. Both projectiles share the same electronics and software. Excalibur N5 is designed to be fired from the 5-inch Mark 45 naval gun system fitted aboard all US Navy's.

The N5 has three fuze modes:
» Hyper burst (or proximity)
» Point detonating
» Point detonating delay (effective against bunkers)

During SNA 2016, we were shown two videos showing recent tests of Excalibur N5 at Yuma proving ground. The videos (which you can see above) demonstrate the accuracy and lethality of the N5 projectile. The projectiles were tested at 20 nautical miles but this is due to range limitation. Maximum range of N5 is 26 nautical miles. The combination of 8 fins at the back for stabilization and 4 canards at the front provides trajectory and extra range.

Senators Begin Push for Jet Sales to Kuwait, Qatar

Joe Gould and Awad Mustafa 12:46 p.m. EST January 22, 2016

WASHINGTON and DUBAI — Two powerful US senators have begun raising questions over why US fighter jet deals with Qatar and Kuwait have been delayed for two years — and placing blame for the delays on the Obama White House.

Qatar’s request for the F-15E Strike Eagle and Kuwait’s request for the F-18E/F Super Hornet are two years old. According to a congressional source, the Defense Department and State Department both support the sales, while the White House has put on the brakes.

That belief was reinforced Jan. 20, when Senate Armed Services Chairman John McCain, a frequent critic of the Obama administration, questioned the delay at a time when America's Sunni allies are looking for reassurance while diplomatic relations are improving between the US and their chief rival in the region, Iran.

“I have no doubt that the Obama administration has pursued a new relationship with Iran because it believed doing so would diminish sectarian tensions in the region, but the reality is that the administration’s overtures to Iran have only exacerbated those tensions,” McCain, R-Ariz., said in a hearing.

“This dynamic has only grown worse because the administration has been so slow to offer support to those allies and partners, as we have recently seen with delayed fighter aircraft sales to Qatar and Kuwait.”

"It shouldn't happen," McCain later said of the delays, "and we're doing everything we can to expedite it."
