Australian JSF Fighter to Cost A$70m
Australia will have to pay A$70m (US$60m) for each advanced joint strike fighter (JSF) aircraft according to Lockheed Martin JSF programme general manager Tom Burbage.
While updating the government on JSF progress, Burbage said the price will not be as high as the previously claimed A$133m an aircraft, according to ABC Television.
Australia is buying the conventional take-off and landing version, which is least the expensive of the three JSF variants.
The F-35 Lightning JSF is an advanced stealth multirole combat aircraft, which will be used by the US and allied air forces to around mid-century.
Australia will acquire up to 100 aircraft, at a cost of about A$16bn (US$13bn), with the first aircraft scheduled to enter service in 2018.

More Super Hornets touch down in Australia
Air Force’s transition to next-generation air combat capability has advanced further with today’s arrival of another six F/A-18F Super Hornets at RAAF Base Amberley, Minister for Defence Senator John Faulkner announced.

Today’s touch down followed a four-day journey from Naval Air Station Lemoore in California.

“The Super Hornet acquisition project continues to be a major success. It is delivering a quantum leap in air combat capability to Air Force, on-time and on-budget,” Senator Faulkner said.

“This project is a great example of what can be achieved through a strong Defence and Industry partnership.”

“This is the culmination of the hard work and dedication of the Royal Australian Air Force, Defence Materiel Organisation, United States Navy, The Boeing Company and their industry partners, Raytheon, General Electric and Northrop Grumman,” Senator Faulkner said.

“No. 1 Squadron’s transition from operating the venerable F-111 to the highly sophisticated Super Hornet has delivered a new and potent air combat capability that will serve Australia for many years to come”.

Twelve of the RAAF Super Hornets have now been delivered by Boeing. The first Super Hornet delivered, A44-201, remains in the United States conducting ongoing advanced software development trials with the United States Navy. It is anticipated that this development activity will be completed later this year and the aircraft will be ferried to Australia before December to bring our in-service complement to twelve aircraft.

The Boeing Company is continuing to assemble Australia’s F/A-18F Super Hornets at its St Louis production facility.

No. 1 Squadron is working with the Australian Super Hornet project team, the Air Combat Transition Office and Air Combat Group to achieve Initial Operating Capability at the end of this year.

Australia – MH-60R Multi-Mission Helicopters

WASHINGTON, July 9, 2010 – The Defense Security Cooperation Agency notified Congress July 7 of a possible Foreign Military Sale to Australia of 24 MH-60R SEAHAWK Multi-Mission Helicopters and associated equipment, parts, training and logistical support for an estimated cost of $2.1 billion.

The Government of Australia has requested a possible sale of 24 MH-60R SEAHAWK Multi-Mission Helicopters, 60 T-700 GE 401C Engines (48 installed and 12 spares), communication equipment, support equipment, spare and repair parts, tools and test equipment, technical data and publications, personnel training and training equipment, U.S. government and contractor engineering, technical, and logistics support services. The estimated cost is $2.1 billion.

Australia is one of our most important allies in the Western Pacific. The strategic location of this political and economic power contributes significantly to ensuring peace and economic stability in the region. Australia’s efforts in peacekeeping and humanitarian operations in Iraq and in Afghanistan have served U.S. national security interests. This proposed sale is consistent with those objectives and facilitates burden sharing with our allies.

The proposed sale of the MH-60R SEAHAWK helicopters will improve Australia’s anti-submarine and surface warfare capability and provide an improved search and rescue and anti-ship surveillance capability. Australia will also use the enhanced capability in future contingency operations encompassing humanitarian assistance, disaster relief, and stability operations in the Asia-Pacific region. Australia will have no difficulty absorbing these additional helicopters into its armed forces.

Australia Awards Sonar Contract
Thales Australia has been awarded government funding for its fibre-optic towed array (FOTA) for submarines under the Department of Defence's capability and technology demonstrator (CTD) programme.
The FOTA technology involves an electro-optic acoustic sensor that produces laser signals through a thin fibre-optic cable.
FOTA will serve as an upgrade for Australia's Collins submarines and future anti-submarine warfare frigates.
The technology has also been used in developing deployable sea-bed surveillance arrays for harbour or ship protection.
Thales Australia CEO Chris Jenkins said the australian industry's expertise in areas of defense technology has supported the Australian military.
"The FOTA is just one example of these breakthroughs. It is much smaller, lighter and more versatile than previous towed arrays and therefore opens up new possibilities for both vessel design and naval operations," he said.
The company has provided sonar systems for the FFG upgrade, Collins submarine, Huon Class minehunter and ANZAC frigates.

L-3 Announces First International Sale of Advanced Helmet Mounted Display

ARLINGTON, Texas | L-3 Link Simulation & Training (L-3 Link) announced today that the first international sale of its Advanced Helmet Mounted Display has been made to Raytheon Australia in support of the Royal Australian Air Force’s (RAAF) Hornet Aircrew Training System (HACTS).
The award calls for L-3 Link to provide Advanced Helmet Mounted Displays (AHMD) to support pilot training on the RAAF’s three F/A-18 Tactical Readiness Trainers (TRT). L-3 Link’s AHMD will replace current fixed field-of-view flat panel displays, enabling pilots to view out-the-window imagery and systems symbology over a 360-degree field-of-regard. The AHMDs will be delivered to two RAAF installations during the third quarter of 2011.
"The Royal Australian Air Force’s low-cost F/A-18 Tactical Readiness Trainers will receive a significant increase in training capability when the Advanced Helmet Mounted Displays are fielded," said Bob Birmingham, president of L-3 Link. "This increased training fidelity will completely immerse aircrews within a realistic virtual environment, while maintaining the F/A-18 Tactical Readiness Trainers’ small footprint."
In addition to providing a 360-degree field-of-regard, the L-3 Link AHMD projects an instantaneous field-of-view that spans 100 degrees horizontally by 50 degrees vertically. Due to the AHMD’s greater than 50 percent see-through capability, RAAF F/A-18 pilots will be able to clearly view the TRT’s simulated controls and avionics. The TRTs, whether networked to the RAAF’s high-fidelity F/A-18 Tactical Operational Flight Trainers or used to provide individual training, provide a low-cost multiplier that increases training throughput and maximizes flight training effectiveness.

Les Etats-Unis ont donné leur feux vert à l’achat par l’Australie d’avions de guerre électronique EA-18G Growler.
Citation :
L’US Technology, Transfer, Security Assistance, Review Board (TTSARB) a pris la décision d’autoriser cette vente de matériels de haute technologie.

Cette décision a été prise à la demande du gouvernement australien et concerne 12 F/A-18F Super Hornets, sur les 24 avions commandés en 2009 par la RAAF. La moitié de la commande seraient directement configurée au standard EA-18G Growler,sur les chaines d’assemblage Boeing.

Le premier Growler a été reçu par l’US Navy le 3 Juin 2008. Selon le constructeur, 27 EA-18G (Mai 2010) sur les 114 avions commandé été à la marine américaine. Il remplace progessivement l’EA6B Prowler qui a rendu de nombreux services de la guerre du Viêt-Nam aux campagnes du Golfe.


Le système d’armes combine des senseurs embarqués, des armements pour supprimer les défenses aériennes adverses et des moyens de brouillage.

Boeing Completes Production of 1st Australian Super Hornet with Provisions for Future Electronic Attack Capability








ST. LOUIS, Sept. 23, 2010 — Boeing [NYSE: BA] announced today that it has completed production of the first Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) F/A-18F Super Hornet that has the capability to be converted into an electronic attack aircraft.

Boeing is pre-wiring the RAAF’s second lot of 12 Super Hornets for potential electronic attack capability conversion during production at the company’s facilities in St. Louis.

“Incorporating the ability to introduce an electronic attack capability on 12 RAAF Super Hornets as they are produced in St. Louis provides maximum flexibility for our Air Force in the future,” said RAAF Group Capt. Steve Roberton, Officer Commanding 82 Wing, which includes Super Hornet and F-111 aircraft. “Ultimately, if a decision to incorporate an electronic attack option is pursued, it will further expand the broad capability of an already formidable Super Hornet weapon system.”

The Australian government announced in March 2007 that it would acquire 24 of the advanced Block II versions of the Super Hornet, all of which are equipped with the Raytheon-built APG-79 Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar. Eleven Super Hornets are now operating at RAAF Base Amberley in Queensland. All 11 aircraft were delivered ahead of schedule and on budget. Boeing will deliver Australia’s 24th Super Hornet in 2011.

“Besides giving the RAAF the potential of introducing electronic attack capability in the future, producing these 12 aircraft with this configuration from the outset also reduces cost when compared with retrofitting at a later date,” said Carolyn Nichols, Australian Super Hornet program manager for Boeing.

The Boeing Super Hornet is a multirole aircraft, able to perform virtually every mission in the tactical spectrum, including air superiority, day/night strike with precision-guided weapons, fighter escort, close air support, suppression of enemy air defenses, maritime strike, reconnaissance, forward air control and tanker missions. Boeing has delivered more than 430 F/A-18E/Fs to the U.S. Navy. Every Super Hornet produced has been delivered on or ahead of schedule and on budget.

DSTO Develops C-130J Aircraft Propeller Balancing Software
The Australian Defence Science and Technology Organisation (DSTO) has developed propeller balance software for air force C-130J aircraft.
The software will help improve the process of dynamic balancing of propellers to reduce vibration levels in C-130J aircraft.
DSTO has carried out a flight test programme on an air force C-130J aircraft to develop the initial concept of the software.
The test results were used to develop an algorithm that, together with data obtained from existing onboard sensors, provided a propeller balance solution.
The software will allow propeller balancing to take two hours without the need for engine ground runs.
It will save the air force $2m of maintenance hours and fuel savings, and free up personnel and aircraft for other tasks.

Tigers not ready to fly: Defence

Attack helicopters the opposition says should be sent to Afghanistan to support Australian troops will not be fully operational for at least two years.

The opposition defence spokesman, David Johnston, started a war of words between the government and the opposition by saying the nation should send in hundreds more troops as well as tanks, helicopters and artillery to support soldiers in Oruzgan province.

His speech in Parliament followed claims that a soldier killed in Oruzgan last month, Lance Corporal Jared MacKinney, would have lived if Australian troops had adequate artillery and air support, including Tiger attack helicopters.
Advertisement: Story continues below

Australia should send a squadron of four to six Tigers and 100 personnel to end its dependence on helicopter support by allied nations, Senator Johnston said.

However, the Defence Department told the Herald yesterday the Tigers were not expected to be fully operational until December 2012. Eighteen of the 22 armed reconnaissance helicopters have been delivered by their maker, Australian Aerospace, and are being introduced into service with the 1st Aviation Regiment in Darwin.

It is believed that while the helicopters could be deployed, their night-fighting ability and armaments will take another two years to complete.

In a statement yesterday, Senator Johnston said he was merely echoing the concerns of soldiers when he called for the boost in capability.

''It was in this context that I also called for attack helicopters, which interestingly the Prime Minister has now acknowledged as being necessary and Australia is now in talks with the US to secure extra attack helicopters,'' he said.

Thales wins $8 million contract for HMAS Newcastle Maintenance from Australia


The Defence Materiel Organisation today announced it has signed a multi-million dollar contract with Thales Australia for the scheduled repair and maintenance of HMAS Newcastle.

The contract is worth approximately $8.7M and is anticipated to engage in the order of 100 Thales personnel with further support from subcontractors.

This is further evidence of Defence’s commitment to ensuring the on-going repair and maintenance of Navy ships occurs in Australia.

As previously stated, Defence has budgeted to spend approximately $79M on ship repair and maintenance in the Sydney region this year and $81M in 2011. This contract is part of that planned expenditure.

Last week the Defence Materiel Organisation also announced that $12 to $17 million worth of work would be undertaken in HMA Ships Kanimbla and Manoora in the Sydney region over the coming months.

RAAF Grounds Hawk Fighter Training Aircraft



The Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) has grounded Hawk fighter training planes at two RAAF air bases following a shutdown of one such aircraft during taxiing for take-off in Western Australia.
The Ministry of Defence (MoD) said the Hawk aircraft would be grounded until investigators determine the exact cause of the malfunction.
A preliminary investigation revealed that fuel contamination was not the cause of the incident.
The Australian Defence Force (ADF) acquired 33 Hawks under the 1995-96 budget, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.
The two-seater aircraft are used for initial fighter training to prepare aircrew for flying F18 Hornets and F-111 strike aircraft.

EADS North America KC-45 tanker program benefits from the first flight of third Australian A330 MRTT


October 18, 2010 by Marcel van Leeuwen · Leave a Comment

The maturity of the EADS North America KC-45 program has been further reinforced with the maiden flight of Australia’s third mission-equipped Airbus Military A330 Multi Role Tanker Transport (MRTT). EADS North America is offering an A330 MRTT-based tanker to the U.S. Air Force as the KC-45, and is the only competitor offering the Air Force a tanker that is already flying, refueling and fully certified today.
Airbus Military will begin deliveries of A330 MRTTs this year to its first operator, the Royal Australian Air Force.

The first two A330 MRTTs built for Australia have performed more than 1,300 aerial refueling contacts and transferred more than one million pounds of fuel, using the same advanced Aerial Refueling Boom System (ARBS) and digital under-wing refueling pods offered on the KC-45. The Australian aircraft also is configured with a Link 16 real-time data link for airborne connectivity, along with a directional infrared countermeasures (DIRCM) system, among other defensive systems.
The third Australian A330 MRTT was converted to its tanker/transport configuration by Qantas Engineering in Brisbane, Australia – underscoring the company’s ability to successfully transfer A330 MRTT production and outfitting around the world. The KC-45 variant of the A330 MRTT will be built at a new American aerospace center of excellence that will be constructed in Mobile, Alabama.
“Every day, the A330 MRTT program is demonstrating that our KC-45 offers the U.S. Air Force a tanker solution that is in production, flying today and proven,” said EADS North America Chairman Ralph D. Crosby, Jr. “We are ready to bring the only real tanker in the Air Force competition to the U.S., where it will be built by 48,000 Americans.”
During the four-hour maiden flight for the newest Australian A330 MRTT, the aircraft reached an altitude of 41,000 feet and performed a series of preplanned trials of test equipment, handling qualities, performance and systems in a full range of mission situations. This is the fifth A330 MRTT currently flying, including two aircraft for the United Kingdom’s Royal Air Force.
The A330 MRTT is in production today for four U.S. allies. Australia, the United Kingdom, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have ordered a total of 28 MRTTs. It has won every head-to-head competition with Boeing’s KC-767 tanker – including the U.S. Air Force competition in 2008.

PICTURES: Australian Super Hornets release first JSOW missiles
Citation :
Australia has for the first time tested the ability of its new Boeing F/A-18F Super Hornets to use Raytheon's AGM-154C Joint Standoff Weapon, as preparations continue to retire its remaining General Dynamics F-111 bombers.

Royal Australian Air Force Super Hornets released two JSOWs at the Woomera Test Range in South Australia against separate hardened concrete bunkers, destroying both. The work represented its first live firings performed outside of the USA with the two-seat strike aircraft.

Armed with a blast/fragmentation warhead, the AGM-154C has a maximum glide range of around 70nm (130km) when released from a height of 40,000ft (12,200m), Raytheon says.


"This is a significant milestone," says Australian minister for defence materiel Jason Clare. "It means that Super Hornets are on track to become operational later this year. They will add to the fire power of our air force, taking our air capability to the next generation of fighter plane."

Three more of air force's eventual 24 F/A-18Fs will arrive in the country by the end of the year, taking its inventory to 14 of the type in Australia, Clare says.

The RAAF's remaining F-111s will be retired during the first week of December at RAAF Base Amberley, Queensland. Australia's first two batches of Super Hornets arrived at the base in March and July this year.

RAAF to Receive Additional Super Hornets



The Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) will receive three additional Super Hornet fighter jets by the end of 2010.
The new Super Hornets will add to the 11 such aircraft already in service with the RAAF.
Minister for Defence Materiel Jason Clare said they would add to the fire power of the air force, taking the country's air capability to the next generation of fighter plane.
The Super Hornets conducted two firings of the air-to-ground joint stand-off weapon (JSOW C) at the Woomera test range against two separate hardened concrete targets.
Clare said the glide weapon has a range of up to 100km and provides a precision strike capability against hardened targets, such as bunkers.
The RAAF will use the Super Hornets to replace its F-111 squadron after four decades of service.
