Airspace border tensions soar / ASDF scrambled 386 times to ward off foreign aircraft in FY10



The Yomiuri Shimbun





The number of Air Self-Defense Force sorties to intercept foreign aircraft flying near Japanese airspace jumped to 386 last fiscal year, up 29 percent from fiscal 2009, according to the Defense Ministry.
In the past two decades, the 2010 figure was the second-largest after the 488 sorties in fiscal 1991.
ASDF jets were scrambled to ward off planes from China 96 times, an increase of about 2.5 times from the previous fiscal year, and Russian aircraft on 264 occasions, an increase of 30 percent.
According to the ministry's Joint Staff Office, Russian aircraft accounted for 68 percent of the total number and Chinese planes 25 percent. Taiwan jets comprised 2 percent, or seven instances, while planes of other nationalities together made up 5 percent, or 19 incidents.
Last fiscal year, there were no instances of North Korean aircraft approaching Japanese airspace, although the ASDF scrambled on eight occasions against that country's jets in fiscal 2009.
The ministry said no foreign aircraft actually violated Japanese airspace in fiscal 2010.
However, Chinese military planes flew past the median line between Japan and China and came close to Japanese airspace over the Senkaku Islands in Okinawa Prefecture for the first time on March 2. ASDF jets were scrambled after the Chinese aircraft--two Y-8 surveillance planes--were spotted flying over the East China Sea toward the Nansei Islands and approaching a point about 50 kilometers from Japanese airspace.
Meanwhile, two Russian aircraft--Sukhoi-27 and AN-12 fighters--came close to Japanese territory on March 21.
During the period after the March 11 Great East Japan Earthquake through March 31, Russian aircraft were spotted 14 times and Chinese jets four times. This is little different from before the disaster, observers said.
The number of ASDF intercepts peaked in fiscal 1984 at 944, after which the figures declined. But the number rose again for two consecutive years in fiscal 2009 and fiscal 2010.
The increase in sorties to ward off foreign aircraft approaching the nation's airspace appears to correlate with the Democratic Party of Japan's 2009 ascent to power and subsequent tensions in the Japan-U.S. defense relationship.
A Defense Ministry senior official said, "[Foreign countries] might have been testing Japan's defense capability as they regarded Japan-U.S. relations as weakened."(Apr. 30, 2011)

F-X Bidders Could Gain From Tsunami Damage





BEIJING — Enlargement of the Japanese F-X fighter program is under consideration as the repair of all 18 Mitsubishi Heavy Industries F-2B trainers damaged in the March 11 tsunami looks increasingly unlikely.
The defense ministry’s initial assessment — that it will be lucky to repair as many as three of the aircraft — also seems to raise the possibility of the F-X program being pursued more urgently. Lockheed Martin, Boeing and the Eurofighter consortium are competing for the order for 40-50 fighters, with the prospect of further production after the initial requirement — replacement of F-4EJ Phantoms — is met.
Just pulling apart the damaged 18 F-2Bs and examining them will cost ¥13.6 billion ($166 million), the ministry tells the Asahi newspaper.
The air force had 33 F-2Bs before 18 were submerged at Matsushima air base by the tsunami, according to Forecast International data (Aerospace DAILY, March 18). So repairs, if any, will leave only 15-18 available.
As a result, the country appears to have four choices: accept a reduction in aircraft numbers, build replacement F-2Bs, acquire Boeing F-15Ds from U.S. stocks, or add units to the F-X program.
Although there is no official comment on the matter, neither of the first two options looks easy.
Since the damaged aircraft are all two-seaters, the training fleet has taken a heavy hit; restoring its numbers should be a priority.
And while Mitsubishi Heavy Industries is still building the last few F-2s before closing its production line this year, its suppliers have already stopped making parts and systems.
So placing an order for more aircraft would now be unusually costly — even if Japan wanted to spend more money on the 1990s model instead of moving on to a new type.
Indeed, the cost of restarting parts production is probably a reason behind the ministry’s bleak assessment, although it could presumably look at using some of its stock of spare parts to refit the damaged aircraft.

Japan may drop F-35 from shortlist of next mainstay fighter -Kyodo



May 20 (Reuters) - Japan may drop the F-35 stealth fighter from a shortlist for the country's next generation fighter due to a sharp delay in the plane's development plan, Kyodo agency reported on Friday citing diplomatic and defense sources.
The operational test of the radar-evading F-35 -- being developed by Lockheed Martin Corp and Britain, Italy, Netherlands, Turkey, Canada, Australia, Denmark and Norway -- is not expected to begin until 2017 and this would not satisfy Japan's desire to receive delivery of the next fighter by March that year, Kyodo said.
The development of the multi role F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, due to replace various aircraft in the military fleets of both the United States and its partners, has been hampered by delays and ballooning costs. [ID:nN19138761]
If Japan were to drop the F-35 its shortlist will be narrowed down to Boeing Co's F/A-18 Super Hornet and the Eurofighter Typhoon. Eurofighter is a four-nation consortium of EADS , representing Germany and Spain, Britain's BAE Systems and Italy's Finmeccanica .
The Eurofighter Typhoon, used by NATO nations and Saudi Arabia, would be Japan's first European fighter jet.
But the sources reckon that Japan, which has emphasised coordination with U.S. forces, could pick the F/A-18, Kyodo said.
Japan is looking to make the selection at the end of the year. The new fighter will replace Japan's aging F-4 Phantoms.

$36 billlion submarine project

Construction of 12 new submarines will go ahead in Adelaide despite the uncertainty cast by cuts in the Federal budget.

Defence materiel minister Jason Clare says these 12 new Collins Class submarines will not be scrapped after $2.7 billion was cut last month.
The $36 billion project will replace the current six current Collins Class submarines serving in the Royal Australian Navy.
However, speculation over construction of a fourth Air Warfare Destroyer has been quashed by Minister Clare.
'There is no bid for a fourth AWD,' Mr Clare said. 'The Howard government approved the construction of three ships and we are building three ships.'Premier Mike Rann welcomed the confirmation by the Federal Government.

Disasters May Help Redefine Japan’s Self-Defense Forces

At the beginning of the film “ Bokoku no Aegis ” (“Aegis of a Ruined Country”), based on the popular novel by Fukui Haruhito, the special agent of the fictional Japanese defense intelligence agency DAIS reads from the thesis of a murdered naval student: “Aegis: the mythical shield of the god Zeus. A ship armed with the Aegis system is the ultimate defensive weapon but dare we ask: What is the purpose of such a shield?

“If Japan cannot change, it will no longer be worth defending, then Aegis will be nothing more than a shield for a lost nation.”

Its theme seemed to capture the complexities and ambivalence, what Richard Samuels dubbed the “ghost of Yamagata Aritomo,” that stalks the country’s Self Defense Forces and the question of its post-war purpose.

For much of Japan’s post-war era, a subtle artifice was pragmatically utilized to evade an open avowal of the goals and purpose of national security. It was, at its crux, an effort at strategic avoidance that sought to transfer any such reckoning to the distant future. Yet it is the nature of such a policy of evasion that has proven to be ultimately eroding to Japan, for it is forced to seek its identity in reaction to events, rather than in their anticipation, and in the process becomes their prisoner.

The tension and catastrophe of the March 11 triple disaster in Japan shattered what little remained of this ambivalence and artifice, and once more focused attention on the role and purpose of the SDF. It is a question that is necessarily inseparable from the content and form of Japanese power and its relation to balance and equilibrium in East Asia.

The physical and spatial isolation of Japan no longer affords it the margin of protection it relied upon throughout its history. The shield of the United States can no longer obscure the realities of the post-cold war era.

The material, psychological and political limitations of the new era shattered the consensus upon which such illusions were based. This would be the first lesson of the post-cold war era. The second lesson would be that the principles and nature of the legitimacy of post-war security could no longer obscure the crisis of purpose that afflicted the SDF.

The post-cold war transformation of the SDF at once reflected the ascendancy of a more pragmatic and astute calculation of national interest and the long-term implications of relative economic decline. A turbulent decade characterized by natural disaster and the rise of substantive economic, military and political threats had sobered the strategic calculus of what was desirable and indeed possible.

Japanese policy makers moved cautiously and pragmatically to alter the post-war limitations on national security and transform its security alliance with the United States. Each change reflected a shifting assessment of the relative importance of military capability to national power.

It was a success because it was based at once on a misunderstanding and an evasion. A misunderstanding because it continued to cloak Japan’s sustained security evolution in the well-worn garb of “defensive defense” and “comprehensive security” and not as an explicit attempt to rebalance the instruments of Japanese power. And an evasion because it was based on misdirection in order to justify security transformation, highlighting the threat which emanated from the Korean peninsula whilst in content and form it was an unmistakable reaction to the growth of Chinese power.

It has been observed that statesmen cannot choose their policy with the illusion that all options are available; rather the material, psychological and political limitations of the moment serve necessarily as the contours within which policy must be conceived. Yet there are moments when weakness may be turned into renewed strength and purpose.

For just as Yamagata Aritomo and his proteges interpreted the era during and after World War I as an “opportunity,” the triple disaster might similarly provide the impetus for a new definition of Japanese purpose. Such a purpose rests on the construction of a robust and flexible legislative framework for national security that replaces the artifice and evasions that characterized the country’s post-war choices.

Concretely, it entails a reinterpretation of the meaning of “war potential” and revision of the ban on collective security, to permit the SDF to engage in collective action alongside the United States and its regional allies. This would permit Japan to deploy a “full-spectrum” military force configured toward a robust expeditionary and asymmetric capability.

Such operational capabilities would provide Japan with the strategic option to respond rapidly to regional contingencies on the Korean peninsula or further afield to provide disaster relief in Southeast Asia and the Middle East. It would provide it with the capability to assist Asean states if threatened and to forge deeper security partnerships with Australia, India and South Korea. And it would finally replace Japan’s post-war ambivalence and artifice with an active commitment to regional security and prosperity.

An expansive commitment to regional security in content and form provides an answer to the question of the purpose of the post-war armed forces. Its success rests on Japan’s willingness to act as a key component in the revitalization, re-conceptualization and rebalancing of the security order in East Asia.

Authorities search for pilot of downed Japanese F-15 off Okinawa


CAMP FOSTER, Okinawa — Japanese authorities were searching for the pilot of a downed F-15 fighter jet in the waters off Okinawa late Tuesday afternoon following a training crash earlier in the day, according to Japanese authorities.
Japanese aircraft and patrol boats were searching for the 37-year-old pilot at a site about 100 miles northwest of Naha where aircraft debris was found, authorities said.
The jet disappeared from Japan Air Self-defense Force radar around 10:30 a.m. A spokesman for Ministry of Defense’s Foreign Media Relations Office said that the aircraft’s speed break and part of a wing were found about an hour later.
Authorities said they were still unsure whether the pilot of the F-15 ejected before the apparent crash.
The U.S. Air Force was not assisting in the search Tuesday afternoon but had made the offer to Japanese forces and was standing by to provide assistance if requested, said 1st Lt. Natassia Cherne, spokeswoman for Kadena Air Base.

Le Japon cloue au sol sa flotte de F-15 après un accident



Un F-15J japonais s’est abîmé en mer au cours d’un vol d’entraînement le 5 juillet 2011. Le pilote est toujours introuvable.
L’appareil a disparu des radars à 180 km au nord-ouest de la ville de Naha, dans l’île d’Okinawa.
Des parties de l’avion ont été retrouvées et mais pas l’appareil lui-même. Trois navires des garde-côtes et cinq avions militaires étaient encore mobilisés mardi.
Le Japon a décidé de clouer au sol sa flotte de F-15 dans l’attente des résultats de l’enquête.
La force aérienne d'autodéfense japonaise possède une flotte de 161 F-15J soit la seconde après les Etats-Unis. L’appareil de Boeing est produit sous licence par Mitsubishi Heavy Industries.

Japanese F-15s return to the skies over Okinawa



CAMP FOSTER, Okinawa — Japan F-15 fighter jets began flying on Okinawa again Wednesday for the first time since a deadly crash caused the fleet to be grounded nationwide earlier this month, according to the Japan Air Self-Defense Force.
The decision to resume flight operations on the island was made after a survey of the F-15 fleet discovered no aircraft structural problems that might have caused the crash that killed a veteran pilot who was on a July 5 training flight out of Naha Air Base, said Maj. Minoru Takara, chief spokesman of Naha Air Base in Okinawa.
The grounding had affected about 200 aircraft in Japan and Okinawa was the last prefecture to bring the F-15s back online. Flight operations on mainland Japan had resumed last week.
“We resumed the flight beginning today after conducting elaborate security precautions to ensure safety in both the aircraft and mental and physical aspect of the pilots,” Takara said.
The cause of the crash, which occurred about 100 miles northwest of the island and killed Maj. Yuji Kawakubo, was still unknown Wednesday as an investigation continued, Takara said.
The pilot’s body had not been recovered despite a search by the Japan coast guard and military. A section of the downed F-15’s tail was found in the ocean and there were reports of smoke and oil in the water.
Takara said a Japanese salvage ship would continue the search effort this week.

Japanese F-15s arrive at Red Flag-Alaska


7/21/2011 - EIELSON AIR FORCE BASE, Alaska -- Several Japan Air Self-Defense Force Mitsubishi F-15 Eagles joined other RED FLAG-Alaska participants July 12 after having its entire F-15 fighter fleet grounded in response to an incident on July 4 with one of the fighter jets during a routine training exercise back in Japan.

The Mitsubishi F-15 Eagle forms part of JASDF fighter-interceptor aircraft inventory used to engage hostile aircraft. The F-15 was brought to RED-FLAG Alaska to help JASDF members improve their tactical flying skills and their ability to generate aircraft in a simulated combat environment.

In Japan's first overseas military training exercise since the disastrous earthquake and tsunami in March, JASDF will be receiving world class training and experiencing a realistic combat simulation. Thorough planning and precautions have ensured challenges were overcome, and the participation of six of Japan's F-15s began immediately upon their arrival at RF-A 11-2.

"Some of our major training goals as RF-A participants are to expand our fighters' tactics," said Lt. Col. Koichi Tokushige, JASDF F-15 Unit Commander. "We would like to improve cooperation between U.S. Forces and JSDAF as well as continue to strive for better understanding with our friends and allies in a joint environment."

The RF-A participants were ready to begin training earlier this week, however, with the F-15s not arriving until a few days into the exercise Japanese F-15 pilots and maintenance members utilized extra time to further prepare for the weeks flying schedule.

While awaiting the arrival of aircraft and equipment pilots coordinated with members at their home station to confirm the F-15s readiness. They also reviewed procedures for emergency situations, such as in-flight emergencies.

Like their pilots, JASDF maintenance members found the extra time helpful for further preparation.

While awaiting the arrival of critical aircraft, they participated in physical fitness and reviewed maintenance equipment.

There are some differences amidst the RF-A partners and not just in language. JASDF made use of downtime to familiarize members of their units with U.S. Air Force equipment.

"There are some significant differences in how we maintain our fighter aircraft," said Tech. Sgt. Toru Michibata, a JASDF maintenance technician. "We would like to show that the Japanese are the best of the best, but we also want to know how some of our international partners repair their aircraft and keep them mission ready."

Ultimately, the arrival of the F-15s has motivated JASDF personnel who are ready to play their part in this large training exercise. The F-15 will fly a variety of tactics and missions in concert with other participating aircraft throughout the exercise.

Kawasaki XP-1 develops cracks in ground testing


Japan's developmental Kawasaki Heavy Industries XP-1 maritime patrol aircraft has developed rips and tears during ground testing, although it is uncertain whether the problems will delay the type's entry into service.

"The tears and rips were found in several locations, such as inside the fuel tank of the main wing and on the fuselage near the foot of the main wing," said Japan's defence ministry.

The tears and rips measured 10-15cm in length.

The two aircraft affected were acquired for ground tests and not flight activities.

Kawasaki XP-1, Kawasaki Heavy Industries


The defence ministry said repairs will be conducted to reinforce the damaged areas, but how this work will affect the XP-1's testing programme is uncertain.

Two other aircraft are used for flight tests.

The Japan Maritime Self-Defence Force plans to acquire 65 P-1s to replace its Lockheed Martin P-3C Orions.

The indigenously-developed maritime patrol and anti-submarine warfare aircraft is powered by four Ishikawajima-Harima Heavy Industries F7-10 turbofan engines.

The XP-1 is 38m long, 12.1m high and has a wingspan of 35.4m, says KHI. Its basic operating weight is 79,700kg (176,000lb).

Japan promotes peace and increases defense budget

16.08.2011


Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan stated during the ceremony devoted to the 66th anniversary of Japan's surrender in WWII that Japan would never wage war again. The head of the Japanese government promised to put the most efforts in strengthening peace in the world.
"Our country inflicted considerable damage and pain on many countries, especially the people in Asian nations. Together with all the people, I express my heartfelt sorrow for those lost in the war and pray for world peace and the country's continued prosperity," Kan said.
The Japanese prime minister also vowed to "renew Japan's pledge never again to engage in war and instead to actively contribute to the establishment of ever-lasting peace in the world."
Alexander Kulanov, a Russian expert for Japan, said that Kan's statement was a natural declaration of intentions.
"As a matte of fact, he said that Japan hopes that it would never wage war again. Can we imagine that Japan can come into war with anyone? The country has territorial disputes with some of its neighbors, but all of those disputes can be solved. Let's take the dispute for the Diaoyutai Islands, for example, which is a purely political dispute, like all the rest of them. The messages about unprecedented natural wealth on the shelf of those islands have not been confirmed yet.

"The breakdown at only one nuclear power plant showed that it was extremely difficult to deal with the consequences of natural disasters even in such highly developed countries as Japan. It is very hard to imagine indeed that Japan would dare to wage war against such strong countries s Russia or China. As for South Korea, the situation is more complicated. The two countries are members of the defense alliance with the United States, which does not want to see any sort of crisis between Japan and South Korea. This detail of the US-Japanese cooperation practically excludes the situation in which Japan can trigger off war single-handedly."
Anatoly Tsyganok, the director of the Center for Military Forecasts, said that he had serious doubts about Japan's peaceful intentions.
"First off, one prime minister can not guarantee the actions of the country even in the short-run. Secondly, Japan has been expanding its cooperation with NATO and with the United States in the first place. To crown it all, Japanese officials repeatedly stated that the country could use its Northern District Army to solve territorial disputes with other countries."
Let's assume that all people of Japan, including Prime Minister Kan, appreciate pacifism and decline militarism. Nevertheless, declarations from Japanese officials set one thinking about the true intentions of Japan because the country has been getting less and less pacifist from year to year.
Japan has earned the reputation of the "country surrounded by disputed territories." Tokyo disputes the Kurile islands with Russia and the Liancourt islands with Seoul. The Japanese refuse to return the Diaoyutai to China in spite of the fact that Japan was supposed to do it after WWII.
In September 2010, the relations between Japan and China worsened considerably after a serious incident near the Diaoyutai archipelago in the East China Sea. China has been putting more pressure on Japan during the recent years at this point. Most of the incidents connected with the archipelago are connected with geological exploration and drilling.
One should also pay attention to Japan's defense spending. In 2010, Japan was ranked third on the size of its defense budget. Japan left behind such countries as Britain, France and Germany and followed only the USA and China. Japan has a relatively small army (240,000 people), but it remains one of the most powerful countries in the Asian-Pacific region from the point of view the technological development of the defense industry.
American experts say that Japan is unable to conduct large-scale military operations single-handedly because the offensive capacity of the country is not large enough. The country lacks aircraft carriers, long-range missiles, strategic bombers, commando units and large ammunition depots.
Many of those problems can be solved easily. Japan has reportedly started to establish Marine Corps and commando units. The country is already capable of conducting large landing operations. The Japanese navy has four helicopter carriers, which many experts categorize as light aircraft carriers. Japan's defense power has increased considerably during the recent decade.
In December 2010, the Japanese government approved the new defense strategy for the upcoming ten years. Tokyo refused from the previous "passive and solely defensive strategy" and switched to "dynamic defense forces."
The country particularly plans to increase the number of destroyers equipped with AEGIS systems (from four to six). The underwater navy will grow 1.5 times (from 16 to 22); old submarines will be modernized for further service.
The program stipulates the further development of the inseparable alliance with the United States by means of increasing the reliability of the growing deterrent posture of the United States, including a vital element - nuclear weapons.
Japan's biggest threats are North Korea and China. The program states that China's insufficient transparency in the military field raises concerns not only with Tokyo, but with the regional and international communities. The document also says that the rising of China creates a certain change in the influence of the United States and leads to the considerable alteration of the balance of forces in the world.
As for Russia, the program mentions the increase of Russia's military activities near the borders of Japan. This is probably the reason why Japan intends to strengthen its Northern Army.
To realize the price of Japan's "antiwar promises," one can make a retrospective journey into world history. After the defeat in WWII, the land of the rising sun approved the Constitution under the USA's constraint, which excluded both the existence of armed forces and the participation in overseas conflicts for the country.
Several years passed, and the principal law of the country was broken (again, with the participation of the United States): all types of armed forces appeared in Japan. To get around the law, the country called its army "Self-Defense Forces."
In the beginning of the 1990s, Japan started to get involved in armed conflicts outside its territory in violation of the national Constitution again. Japan sent a group of military medics to assist the countries of the anti-Iraqi coalition during Operation Desert Storm in 1991. Beginning from 1992, Japanese military men could be seen in many hotspots of the world under the guise of peacemaking and humanitarian missions.
All of those events became a prologue for the participation in combat operation conducted by the United States and its allies in Iraq (2004-2006) and Afghanistan. It just so happened that the "peaceful Constitution" of Japan was not an obstacle at all. A word from the USA was enough. US officials asked their Japanese counterparts a favor because the States had to attract as many foreign contingents in the region as possible,
It is worthy of note that Washington supports Tokyo in many international issues, including the problem of the disputed Kurile islands. It is not ruled out that the USA may try to use Japan just like it used its other allies in previous armed conflicts. Is it possible to say that Japan will never be on the war-path against such a background?

Japan Coast Guard to boost its fleet with new EC225 helicopters

Decision in wake of intensive rescue missions in the wake of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami

Following intensive relief operations after the Great East Japan Earthquake in March, the Japan Coast Guard, Eurocopter Group and Eurocopter Japan have signed a tripartite contract for the supply of three additional EC225 helicopters to the Japan Coast Guard. These aircraft will be the first civilian helicopters to be equipped with the most advanced mission system, to be deployed for search and rescue as well as law enforcement missions.

Procurement of the EC225s was decided after the Japanese Coast Guard efficiently carried out rescue and relief efforts following the massive earthquake and tsunami that hit the country on March 11, but unfortunately had aircraft submerged during the disaster that were rendered unserviceable. The acquisition will replenish the fleet with new aircraft that have the technology and capability to carry out complex search and rescue (SAR) as well as anti-piracy missions.

"We are very proud to have our helicopters contributing to saving lives every day in Japan,” said Eurocopter President & CEO Lutz Bertling. “The Eurocopter Japan team, which provided round-the-clock support to their customers after the Tohoku tragedy, remains totally committed to ensure that the helicopter missions can be performed in the best and safest conditions."

The Japan Coast Guard initially purchased two EC225s in 2006 through an open tender, complementing their AS332 L1 fleet for long range all-weather SAR missions as well as for ship-borne operations.

“The decision by the Japan Coast Guard to acquire additional EC225s this year was taken in view of its new assignment for anti-piracy missions, while also taking into account the outstanding performance of their existing EC225 helicopters – which have been used intensively since delivery, as demonstrated during the disaster relief operations,” explained Stéphane Ginoux, President and CEO of Eurocopter Japan. “Together, the service’s EC225 and AS332 L1 fleet will be able to continue serving the country and saving lives under severe circumstances.”

When the earthquake struck in March and triggered destructive tsunami waves, Eurocopter Japan immediately set up round-the-clock maintenance shifts to support helicopter operations, ensuring maximum availability of the helicopters to perform their missions. More than half of the helicopters used by fire-fighters, police and coast guards during the disaster relief operations were of Eurocopter origin.

Eurocopter’s twin-engine EC225 is in the 10-11-ton weight category, and features high-performance navigation and mission systems – including a unique digital autopilot; while also offering excellent flight autonomy and a large cabin with seating for 25 persons. As a result, the EC225 and its EC725 military version have become the reference for civil and military search and rescue, off-shore and passenger transport missions not just in Japan, but around the world.
To date, a total of 240 EC225s and EC725s have been ordered, of which approximately half have been delivered. The annual production rate will be increased by 60 percent over the next two-year period to meet market demand.
