Australian Chinook Helicopters to Return Home



Australia's Rotary Wing Group rotation and its CH-47 Chinook helicopters will return home from Afghanistan for mandatory maintenance.
The task group and their two CH-47 Chinooks will return to Afghanistan in early 2011 to recommence flight operations in support of the International Stabilisation Assistance Force (ISAF).
Maintenance crews have stripped the Chinook helicopters and packed them into two Royal Australian Air Force C-17 Globemaster III aircraft for the return trip to Australia.
During the last eight months, the CH-47s have completed 737 flying hours and have moved over 691,000kg of supplies and equipment.
The two Chinooks have completed 860 sorties and transported 4,700 troops while assisting the efforts of the ISAF on the current rotation.

Airbus poised to complete qualification flights with Australian tankers

The last customer qualification flights involving the Royal Australian Air Force's new KC-30A tankers will be flown by early November, clearing the way for two of the modified Airbus A330s to be handed over before the end of the year.

"We are now doing a final few flights with the customer to clear the deliveries," says Gabriel Garcia Mesuro, Airbus Military's head of flight operations for the A330 multi-role tanker transport. Totalling around six sorties, the work will include final activities with the Boeing F-18 and Lockheed Martin F-16 fighters, night flights and work involving two KC-30As, he says.

The RAAF will in early December take delivery of the second and third aircraft from its five-unit KC-30A programme. The latter has been modified in Australia by Qantas Defence Services and is currently being painted in Paris as part of its final pre-delivery preparations, Mesuro says. Aircraft one should be transferred in the second quarter of next year, after its flight-test instrumentation has been removed at Getafe near Madrid.

Australia's fourth KC-30A is being converted by Qantas, with the company due to receive the programme's last aircraft for modification in early 2011.

Two more A330 tankers have already entered flight testing in Spain under the UK's Future Strategic Tanker Aircraft project. Mesuro says the first modified examples for Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates are on track to follow suit around early 2011.

Airbus Military secured military certification for its A330 MRTT design from Spain's INTA authority in early October.

Australia Requires 12 Long-Range Submarines for Security
Australia will need 12 large, long-range submarines to shape its strategic future in the wake of warnings about China's growing military power, Paul Dibb, former head of the Strategic and Defence Studies Centre at the Australian National University, has said.
Speaking at a Submarine Institute conference in Perth, Dibb said the country would ignore its unique strategic geography at its own peril and a central strategic priority for Australia should be a large potent submarine force.
"We do not require two 27,000t amphibious assault ships that will require protection by most of our surface, sub-surface and combat air patrol forces so they can put a token land force ashore," he added.
According to the government's current white paper report, the country requires 12 long-range submarines, which will cost A$36bn. The first boat will be operational from 2020.

Australia’s first Wedgetail crew completes training
Citation :
Australia's first mission crew for the Boeing 737-based Wedgetail airborne early warning and control system aircraft has completed its training, following a seven-month course.

The first intake of eight Royal Australian Air Force students received their training with support from eight instructors and three role-players from Boeing. They underwent 1,200h of training on the aircraft's battle management mission systems.

"Boeing Defence Australia is responsible for training the students in non-tactical areas across all aircraft mission systems, including datalinks, communications systems and the multi-role electronically scanned array radar, to ensure they graduate with the necessary skills," says Todd Barker, the company's Wedgetail AEW&C mission crew lead instructor and course director.

Based on the 737-700, the Wedgetail can track airborne and maritime targets simultaneously with its Northrop Grumman surveillance radar, and has 10 mission crew consoles.

Under a contract with the RAAF, Boeing provides programme management, supply-chain management and engineering, maintenance and training services to support Australia's Wedgetail fleet.

The nation has formally accepted three aircraft in an "initial operating configuration". Another is scheduled to arrive before year-end, with a fourth to follow in 2011.

Completing the first training course represents a high point in the Wedgetail's long and troubled history. Boeing delivered the service's first of six modified aircraft in 2003, but the programme fell three years behind schedule because of problems with structural modifications and radar performance. In November 2009 the RAAF accepted its first two Wedgetails with limited capability.

The AEW&C programme is listed on the Australian defence ministry's projects of concern list. Established in 2008, this is intended to help government and industry leaders focus on solving issues involved with projects which face significant challenges with scheduling, cost or capability delivery.

Boeing, Royal Australian Air Force Complete 1st Year of In-country C-17 Pilot Training


November 18, 2010 by Rob Vogelaar · Leave a Comment

AMBERLEY, Queensland, Nov. 18, 2010 — Boeing [NYSE: BA] and the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) today announced they have successfully completed the first year of in-country Pilot Initial Qualification (PIQ) training for the C-17 Globemaster III airlifter.
Since the first of four courses began on Feb. 1, Boeing Defence Australia has trained eight new C-17 pilots and collectively delivered more than 1,600 hours of programmed PIQ training, including 560 hours of computer-based training and 480 simulated flight hours in the Boeing-developed C-17 Globemaster III Aircrew Training System (ATS). The ATS was commissioned by the Defence Materiel Organisation (DMO) in November 2009 and made Australia the first C-17 ATS customer outside the United States.
Squadron Leader Peter Thompson and Flight Lieutenant James Gotch graduated today as the latest batch of RAAF C-17 Globemaster III pilots trained in Australia by Boeing Defence Australia’s C-17 aircrew training team at RAAF Base Amberley. Previously, all RAAF C-17 pilots and aircrew trained in the United States.
Wing Commander Paul Long, who conducted the in-country PIQ training in 2010, will take up the position of Commanding Officer for No. 36 Squadron at the end of this year.
“The ability to train our people in Australia has provided 36 Squadron with greater flexibility, cost savings and capability improvements,” Long said. “Having the ATS facility within walking distance at Amberley provides easy access to Boeing instructors and the ATS. Aircrew can now achieve their training and be back at work the same day instead of the past practice of having to travel to the U.S.”
“The graduation of all eight students as qualified C-17 pilots demonstrates the success and value of this in-country training capability, which is provided by the expertise of Boeing Defence Australia’s instructors and the Amberley-based C-17 ATS in partnership with the RAAF’s own Qualified Flying Instructors,” said Nigel Page, Boeing Defence Australia C-17 ATS site lead.
In addition to PIQ training, Boeing Defence Australia provides continuation training for current RAAF C-17 pilots and loadmasters, as well as scheduling and logistics support. These services are provided under the stewardship of the DMO’s Heavy Air Lift Systems Program Office. C-17 PIQ training at RAAF Base Amberley will recommence in January.

RAAF Vigilare Command and Control System Pass Final Factory Test


The Royal Australian Air Force's (RAAF) Vigilare network-centric command and control system (NC3S), has passed its final factory and tactical data link (TADIL) acceptance tests.
The tests were performed to prepare Vigilare for final integration at the Eastern Regional Operations Centre (EROC) at RAAF Base Williamtown in NSW, Australia.
Boeing vice-president and general manager of Network & Tactical Systems Charles Toups said the tests marked the final engineering release of the system and formally verify that Boeing has met 95% of the requirements for Vigilare.
The factory acceptance test verified Vigilare's enhanced data processing and display, fault detection and isolation, and interactive replay requirements with a 98% compliance rate.
Vigilare entered service with the RAAF at the Northern Regional Operations Centre installation at RAAF Base Tindal, Northern Territory on 2 September.

BAE Systems Delivers Australian Hornets Ahead of Schedule

NEWCASTLE, Australia | BAE Systems has underlined its commitment to total performance by delivering the two most recent F/A-18 Hornets under the RAAF’s Deeper Maintenance Support Contract ahead of schedule and under budget.

The BAE Systems Australia Fast Jet Support maintenance team and partner L-3 MAS Canada delivered the first Hornet three working days ahead of schedule, followed by the second Hornet being delivered ten working days early at its Williamtown facility.

The Company, in co-operation with the DMO’s Tactical Fighter Systems Program Office, is implementing the Smart Maintenance concept as part of Defence’s Strategic Reform Program (SRP).

Commander of the RAAF Air Combat Group Air Commodore Mel Hupfeld said: “Air Force appreciates the endeavours and achievements of BAE Systems in supporting
SRP.

“We look forward to all of our industry partners assisting, on a sustainable basis, to the improved delivery of effective capability at lower cost to the Commonwealth of Australia. These early results from BAE Systems are encouraging and I congratulate them and applaud their initiatives.”

BAE Systems’ Aerospace Business Unit began introducing ‘Lean’ processes in 2009 and these recent successes reflect a continuing improvement in aircraft availability and reduced cost.

Director Aerospace John Monaghan, said: “We have worked very hard at every level — from the technicians on the line to our lead management team — to achieve the Commonwealth’s SRP objectives.

“Lean is taken very seriously and the implementation of Lean concepts is central to that process.

“We are striving along with our contract partners in L-3 MAS Canada to hone and refine our methods through phase based servicing, consultation, workforce engagement and constant improvement, using integrated monitoring, review and evaluation of our maintenance processes at every step.

“Even though we have carried out the work ahead of schedule, we have not compromised the safety of our personnel or airworthiness”

Since 2009, BAE Systems and partner L-3 MAS Canada have provided deeper maintenance and modification support for all 71 Australian F/A-18 Hornet fighters.

PICTURES: Australia's F-111 retirement to close chapter of aviation history

Australia will retire its last General Dynamics F-111Cs in a ceremony at Royal Australian Air Force base Amberley in Queensland on 2 December. As the last operator of the swing-wing, long-range strike aircraft, the event will close a chapter in aviation history that began with the first flight of the F-111A prototype almost 46 years ago at the then-General Dynamics' factory in Fort Worth, Texas.

Over the years the F-111 performed several roles for the US Air Force, including long-range strike, and with the EF-111 Raven variant, electronic warfare. In USAF service F-111s participated in the Vietnam War, the US attack on Libya in 1986, and Operation Desert Storm in 1991 against Iraq's invasion of Kuwait.

By 1997, the USAF had parked all of its "Aardvark" fleet. But the RAAF's Amberley-based 82 Wing continued to keep the "Pig" flying for another 14 years. Australia started operations with the F-111C in 1973, and retired its last ex-USAF F-111Gs in 2007.


US Air Force F111s were used in anger against Vietnam, Libya and Iraq

Taking the bomber's place will be a fleet of 24 Boeing F/A-18F Super Hornets. The first 11 are already in Australia. Another three are to be delivered this year, with the new type to be declared operational later in December.

Another 10 two-seat F/A-18Fs will be delivered by October 2011 to fully replace the F-111 - but for only about 10 years. The RAAF originally announced plans in 2003 to replace the F-111 this year with the Lockheed Martin F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. But after Lockheed announced the first major delay to the programme in 2004, Canberra moved to order 24 Super Hornets in 2006 as a stopgap.

Also based at Amberley, the Super Hornets are slower and have less range than the land-based F-111, and are optimised for carrier landings. The Boeing type also lacks the very low observable level of stealth advertised for the F-35, 100 of which are expected to be acquired for the RAAF.

But the service is receiving a fighter with Raytheon's state-of-the-art APG-79 active electronically scanned array radar, which has already received high praise from 82 Wing Commander Gp Capt Steve Roberton for its ability to track air and ground targets simultaneously. The F-111 features the Pave Tack targeting system to guide precision munitions, but the F/A-18F sports Raytheon's advanced targeting forward looking infrared pod, with third-generation thermal imaging.

Australia earlier this decade completed the integration of Rafael's AGM-142 Raptor air-to-surface missile with its F-111, but recent tests with the Super Hornet's Raytheon AGM-154C Joint Standoff Weapon have demonstrated an advanced strike capability.

The retiring type is also powered by costly to maintain Pratt & Whitney TF30s that have been used in the F-111's signature air show display: the "dump and burn".

The 1960s-era F-111 also lacks a communications suite on a par with the modern standard for transmitting data seamlessly between airborne platforms. Perhaps more than any other deficiency, it is this shortcoming which has pushed the RAAF to retire the type even before its original replacement is ready to be fielded.

Australia Adds JASSM Project to Concern List

Australia has added the acquisition of Joint Air to Surface Standoff Missiles (JASSM) for its F / A-18A / B aircraft to its projects of concern list.
The AIR 5418 Phase 1 project, approved in 2004, includes acquiring JASSM for deployment on F / A-18A / B aircraft to improve aircraft survivability and weapon effectiveness.
Minister for Defence Stephen Smith and Minister for Defence Materiel Jason Clare declared the project is behind schedule and that "risks to capability remain".
The next major stage in the project is a live firing from an Australian F / A-18A / B in the US in late 2010 or early 2011.

Australian Super Hornets Ready for Duty

Australia’s first squadron of F/A-18F Super Hornet fighter jets is operational and ready for duty following the arrival of four new aircraft at RAAF Base Amberley.

The Super Hornets will add to the fire power of the RAAF, taking Australia’s capability to the next generation of fighter plane.

The fleet includes the first three of Australia’s Super Hornets to be configured to accommodate the Growler electronic attack system.

The Super Hornets will ensure Australia's air combat capability is maintained until the full introduction into service of the Joint Strike Fighter.

The fleet of Super Hornets has reached initial operational capability on time and on budget.

The combined efforts of the United States Navy, Boeing and the Hornet Industry team have contributed to achieving this result.

The four newly arrived aircraft departed from the Boeing facility in St. Louis USA, and over a number of days transited to RAAF Base Amberley via Travis Air Force Base California, Hickam Air Force Base in Hawaii and Guam.

Mr Shayne Neumann, Federal Member for Blair, representing the Minister for Defence, and Senator the Honourable George Brandis, representing the Opposition Spokesperson for Defence, visited RAAF Base Amberley today to review the latest aircraft to arrive and to mark the occasion of the Super Hornets achieving initial operational capability.

PICTURE: Australia’s first F/A-18F squadron declared operational
By Greg Waldron

Australia's first squadron of Boeing F/A-18F Super Hornets is now operational, following the recent retirement of the nation's General Dynamics F-111Cs.

The announcement follows the arrival of four new F/A-18s at Amberley air base in Queensland, says the RAAF.

"The Super Hornets will add to the fire power of the RAAF, taking Australia's capability to the next generation of fighter plane," says the air force. "The fleet includes the first three of Australia's Super Hornets to be configured to accommodate the Growler electronic attack system."

It adds that the Super Hornets will fill an important capability gap until the full introduction into service of the Lockheed Martin F-35 Joint Strike Fighter.

The four newly arrived aircraft departed from the Boeing facility in St Louis, Missouri, and over a number of days transited to Amberley via Travis AFB in California, Hickam AFB in Hawaii and Andersen AFB, Guam.

Australia retired its last F-111Cs on 2 December. It was the last nation to operate the swing-wing, long-range strike aircraft.

The F-35 was originally intended as the F-111's replacement, but delays in the programme forced the RAAF to acquire Super Hornets as a stopgap in 2006. The Super Hornets are due to be retired by 2021 as the F-35 is delivered.

RAAF Launches Air-to-Surface Missile



The Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) has launched two Joint Standoff Weapon Cs from the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet.
The JSOW C-1 maintains the land attack capability of JSOW C and adds a moving maritime target capability by incorporating a datalink, which enables the JSOW to receive target updates as it flies to its target.
The missile carries a single BROACH warhead that has blast, fragmentation and penetration effects.
The JSOW C is integrated on all variants of the F/A-18 and will be integrated on the Joint Strike Fighter.
The test marks the first time a US ally has operationally tested a JSOW C and it also marks the first time the JSOW C variant has been employed outside the US.
The RAAF has placed an order for the JSOW C-1 and deliveries of the Raytheon Company-built JSOW Cs are expected to begin in 2011.

Boeing Delivers 4 More Super Hornets to Australia Ahead of Schedule


January 6, 2011 by Rob Vogelaar · Leave a Comment

AMBERLEY, Queensland, Jan. 6, 2011 — Boeing [NYSE: BA] delivered four new F/A-18F Super Hornets to Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Base Amberley in December, expanding the RAAF’s fleet of the advanced multirole fighters to 15. The delivery enabled the RAAF’s achievement of Initial Operating Capability (IOC) with its first Super Hornet squadron, the Amberley-based No. 1.
Boeing has delivered all 15 Super Hornets to Australia ahead of schedule.
“Early delivery of our new Super Hornets at Amberley has been a vital part of our path toward IOC for our first Super Hornet squadron, which we have now achieved ahead of schedule,” said RAAF Group Capt. Steve Roberton, Officer Commanding 82 Wing, which operates the Super Hornet. “As we’ve continued to hit our marks on time — or early, in many instances — with the Super Hornet program, we’ve enabled the RAAF to ensure Australia’s regional air superiority as we transition from the F-111 and classic Hornet.”
The December arrival was the third Super Hornet delivery to the base during 2010. Three aircraft in the latest delivery were prewired for potential conversion to electronic attack capability during production at Boeing facilities in St. Louis; the remaining nine aircraft in the contract will be prewired in the same way before delivery to the RAAF’s No. 6 Squadron.
“The Boeing Super Hornet team has surpassed expectations by delivering 15 aircraft to the RAAF in 2010 instead of the 12 originally scheduled,” said Carolyn Nichols, Australian Super Hornet program manager for Boeing. “Additionally, each aircraft has been delivered within budget. We are fully committed to ensuring the same delivery success and budget excellence throughout 2011. We congratulate the men and women of the RAAF on the outstanding achievement of reaching No. 1 Squadron’s Super Hornet IOC ahead of schedule.”
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.
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 440 F/A-18E/Fs to the U.S. Navy. Every Super Hornet produced has been delivered on or ahead of schedule and on budget.

Australia welcomes US F-35 programme changes
Australia has welcomed the restructuring of the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II programme announced by US Secretary of Defense Robert Gates.

"Australia's variant [the convential take-off and landing F-35A] is less expensive and less complex than the other variants," says acting minister for defence Jason Clare. "The restructuring announced by Secretary Gates means it is now at the front of the production queue."

Canberra approved the acquisition of an initial 14 F-35As in 2009, with the first two aircraft to be delivered in 2014. The first 10, however, will initially be based in the USA for pilot and maintenance training. The following four will arrive in Australia in 2017, where they will undergo further tests. The nation plans to eventually buy up to 100 F-35s.

"Australia has always adopted a conservative approach to [F-35] cost estimates and has explicitly included contingency funds and buffers to the schedule," says Clare.

"While there is no need to change our cost and schedule estimates, we will continue to assess options to ensure that cost and schedule buffers remain adequate."

Clare's comments follow Gates's 6 January announcement that the US Marine Corps' short take-off and vertical landing F-35B is to be moved to the back of Lockheed's production system, due to development problems.

Thales's support for maritime tactical network

Australia's SEA 1442 concept.

Thales Australia has built on its successful participation in the Department of Defence’s establishment of a Maritime Tactical Wide Area Network, with the in-service support contract under SEA 1442 Phase 3 becoming operative.

The five-year contract involves the company providing a range of engineering, maintenance, supply and help desk support for the system.

SEA 1442/3 has introduced an Internet Protocol (IP) based Maritime Tactical Wide Area Network (MTWAN) into the Royal Australian Navy, supporting the Australian Defence Force’s Network Centric Warfare concept and providing the foundation for future maritime communication systems integration and implementation.

Chris Jenkins, Thales Australia’s CEO, said the contract allowed room for further enhancements: “SEA 1442/3 is the foundation architecture that will allow the evolution of tactical maritime communication and information systems into a network enabled capability.”

“Thales Australia has the expertise to deliver cost-effective support that ensures high levels of performance, plus the potential for systems upgrade as new technologies become available.”

“We are also well placed to offer a wide range of solutions for other Australian maritime programs, from the upgrade of existing equipment to the introduction of new capabilities, as shown by our recent contract to deliver a satellite communications system for the Air Warfare Destroyers.”

Navy eyes redundant UK vessel


DEFENCE officials have travelled to Britain to inspect a Royal Navy ship destined to be mothballed under savage spending cuts announced by the British government last year.
The Defence Minister, Stephen Smith, announced this week that Defence is considering buying the RFA Largs Bay, a large ship capable of providing a landing spot for helicopters, and of carrying dozens of vehicles and hundreds of troops.
However, Defence confirmed yesterday that navy officials had visited England last month to ''examine the potential utility of a Bay Class vessel'' before the delivery of two giant troop transport assault ships, starting in 2014.Advertisement: Story continues below
The Largs Bay is one of a number of Royal Navy ships slated for decommissioning because of funding cuts by the government to protect Britain's economy from the global financial crisis.
Australia's two operational transport ships, HMAS Manoora and HMAS Kanimbla, are ageing and trouble-prone, and are undergoing repairs in Sydney to fix mechanical problems and rust in the hulls.
Buying the Largs Bay would give the navy breathing space before the completion of the transport ships HMAS Canberra and HMAS Adelaide in 2014 and 2015 respectively.
Defence's most recent white paper also called for a smaller amphibious vessel, with multiple landing spots for helicopters and the ability to move bulk supplies without requiring the support of port facilities, to complement the Canberra and Adelaide.
The December 2010 update of the 2009 white paper said the replacement should cost between $300 million and $500 million. Defence sources said the Largs Bay could cost about $300 million.
Mr Smith held talks with the British Defence Secretary, Liam Fox, this week in Adelaide about opportunities for defence industry collaboration between the two countries, and about Australia acquiring decommissioned British equipment

New combat armour for Australian soldiers comes off ADA production line


The first batch of the new Tiered Body Armour System (TBAS) for Australian soldiers in Afghanistan has come off the production line at Australian Defence Apparel (ADA) in Bendigo, creating an extra 50 local jobs.

Minister for Defence Materiel Jason Clare inspected the production line in Bendigo today.
“The new body armour system is lighter, fits better, is more comfortable and provides more mobility than the existing body armour our troops use,” Mr Clare said.
“At the moment our soldiers in Afghanistan wear either the Modular Combat Body Armour System (MCBAS) or the Eagle Marine body armour.
“MCBAS body armour is very effective, but it’s heavy. It was designed for conditions in Iraq where troops weren’t regularly required to patrol on foot.

“In Afghanistan the feedback from troops was it made it difficult to move around and do their job, so Defence made an urgent purchase of the lighter Eagle Marine body armour last year from the United States.
“The new TBAS is lighter than both. It also allows troops to insert different types of ballistic plates in the vest depending on their mission.
“Because it is Australian-made and we own the design we can also make adjustments and improvements at any time to suit the needs of our troops.”

Mr Clare said Defence was planning for soldiers from Mentoring Task Force 3 to train in this body armour in April as part of their Mission Rehearsal Exercises and deploy with it when they head to Afghanistan later this year.
“ADA will produce around 1,600 tiered body armour systems over the next few months,” Mr Clare said.
“Over the past 18 months TBAS has been tested and evaluated by Special Forces, Navy clearance divers and soldiers from the 1st Brigade in Darwin, 3RAR in Sydney and 2 RAR in Townsville.
“They told us this was the body armour they want to wear in Afghanistan.
“They said it integrates better with their combat equipment and provides much greater freedom of movement, especially around their shoulders. This enables soldiers to get into better firing positions and manoeuvre more freely on the battlefield.
“The protection of our frontline troops is our top priority. That’s why Defence and ADA have developed, tested and produced this new body armour.
“The workers here at ADA can be very proud of the work they are doing. It could save a soldier’s life.”

Mr Clare said ADA had a long and proud history of involvement with the Australian Defence Force.
“They first started making uniforms for the Defence Force here in 1912,” Mr Clare said.
“For almost a century ADA has been supporting Australian troops and local jobs.”
