Navantia espère construire jusqu’à 13 sous-marins pour l’Australie

Insiste sur ESPERE, Car aujourd'hui, les australiens n'arrive même pas à fo**** 2 sous marins à la mer, (ils n'ont pas assez de personnel pour armé la moitié des SM) alors avoir 5-6 sous marins à la mer
Faudra qu'ils recrutent des Kangourous et des Koala je pense
Plus sérieusement, ce que je retiens dans l'article, c'est que l'Australie n'a pas l'air fermée à passer commande de SM à l'étranger (construction à Osborne avec transfert de techno ). Normal, l'Australie n'a jamais construit de SM SEUL !

Certe elle a quelques petits chantiers, mais de la à construire toute seule ses SM, il ya un pas trop grand (surtout 12!) Non, il est clair que les australiens vont choisir un design étrangers et vont insister dans le contrat pour qu'une part substantielle des SM soit construit dans leurs chantiers. Le 1er SM sera construit peut être dans le pays "offreur" et les autres en Australie.
Le nombre de 12, perso j'y crois pas trop (trop démesuré pour une marine pareil, faudra soit que le budget de la défense explose, soit que d'autres programmes entiers soient sacrifiés).
Le design final retenue ?
" Les allemands (212/214) j'y crois pas trop (trop petits)
" Les français (grosse version des Scorpene), impossible, j'y crois pas un instant (sauf action commandos de dcns & sarko)
" Les Suédois (nouveau design en étude), possible, les suédois ont une très bonne réputation.
" Les espagnols (S80), TRES fort possible, étant donner que le design utilise beaucoup de matos US, les australiens y seront très sensible
" Les sud coréen, je doute, à l'heure actuelle, il savent uniquement copier le type 214 allemand (avec quelques modifs à leurs sauce. ils seront mature et autonome vers 2018-2020)
" Les Japonais, je sais, pas les australiens on peut être la une carte à jouer

Russe, Chinois, non la je rigole
En tous cas, l'industriel qui gagnera ce contrat fera un gros coup !(surtout si le chiffre de 12 est réalisé ce dont je doute)

une autre chose à retenir ce que, Peut-être qu'ils ce sont rendu compte que les prévisions de coûts données par les "spécialistes" locaux étaient complétement débiles (36 Mds dollards US pour une douzaine de sous-marins classiques)

La force sous-marine australienne ’réduite à un seul sous-marin opérationnel’


La flotte sous-marine australienne est actuellement réduite à un seul sous-marin opérationnel, soulevant de sérieux doutes sur l’avenir à long-terme des 6 sous-marins de la classe Collins.

Le chef de la marine australienne, Russ Crane, a confirmé lundi une panne de générateur survenue la semaine dernière à bord du HMAS Farncomb. Le sous-marin devra entrer en cale sèche pour des réparations urgentes.
Selon l’opposition, le nombre de sous-marins opérationnels est désormais d’un seul, le HMAS Rankin, et le gouvernement fait face à une crise majeure de maintenance.
Citant des raisons de sécurité, la marine australienne a refusé de répondre aux questions sur le nombre de sous-marins qu’elle peut envoyer en mer.
Cependant, des sources de défense ont confirmé les informations de l’opposition qu’un seul sous-marin était disponible pour de l’entraînement et les missions opérationnels.
La panne de générateur du Farncomb constitue la dernière dans une série de sérieux problèmes mécaniques affectant les sous-marins de la classe Collins. Dans une brève déclaration, le vice-amiral Crane a exprimé sa frustration.
Intervenant après les problèmes de moral liés au manque de personnel et aux pannes de moteur, la panne de générateur est simplement le dernier revers pour la force sous-marine.
La force sous-marine australienne opère déjà sous de sévères restrictions à cause des problèmes mécaniques et de maintenance liées à des problèmes chroniques de moteur. Dans des conditions idéales, la marine australienne souhaite disposer de 2 sous-marins prêts à partir en mission, 2 pour la formation ou en entretien de base, et 2 en entretien lourd.
Mais certains experts ont averti que les moteurs suédois Hedemora pourraient devoir être remplacés — une tâche lourde et qui pourrait couter des centaines de millions de $. La situation est si sérieuse que les sous-marins Collins sont en tête de la liste des "sources d’inquiétude" de la défense.
La longue liste des problèmes qu’ont connu les sous-marins Collins soulève des questions sur la capacité de la marine australienne à mener à bien l’expansion de la flotte à 12 sous-marins.

First Steel Cut for Australian LHD 02 Amphibious Ship at Navantia Shipyard



14:06 GMT, February 2, 2010 Greg Combet, Minister for Defence Personnel, Materiel and Science today announced that Navantia of Spain has commenced construction of Australia’s second Landing Helicopter Dock hull (LHD 02) at Navantia’s shipbuilding yard in Ferrol, Spain.

“This is a great achievement with the steel being cut by Navantia 7 weeks ahead of schedule,” said Mr Combet.

“The Commonwealth has contracted BAE Systems Australia to provide two large Amphibious Ships (LHDs) that will form part of the ADF’s broader amphibious deployment and sustainment system.

“Under the project the Spanish shipbuilder Navantia is the design authority and is subcontracted to BAE Systems Australia to construct and fit out the hulls of two large Amphibious Ships for the ADF.

“I am pleased to report that the LHD project is on schedule, with whole of ship design reviews completed and the keel laying of LHD 01 taking place exactly one year to the day from first steel being cut.

“After completion of LHD 01 and 02, both hulls will be transported to Australia.”

The superstructures will then be constructed, fitted out and integrated with the hulls at BAE Systems Australia’s Williamstown dockyard.

“Once the hull arrives at Williamstown dockyard, the combat system will be installed by SAAB Systems Australia, which will also integrate the combat management system. The communications system will be supplied by L-3 Communications,” said Mr Combet.

The next milestone will be the launch of LHD 01 in Spain in March 2011. LHD 01 will arrive at Williamstown dockyard in 2012, with LHD 02 arriving in 2014

13:43 GMT, February 8, 2010 WILLIAMTOWN, New South Wales | Boeing Defence Australia, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Boeing Company [NYSE: BA], has been awarded a $1.5 million contract for the provision of engineering support services for the Royal Australian Air Force's (RAAF) fleet of F/A-18A/B Hornet aircraft.

The 30-month contract, managed by the Tactical Fighter Systems Program Office (TFSPO) at RAAF Base Williamtown, requires Boeing Defence Australia to deliver repair plans for faults uncovered during F/A-18A/B Hornet maintenance.

"This contract maintains our F/A-18 engineering capability as it increases our overall business on the platform," said Brad Hume, Boeing Defence Australia F/A-18 program manager.

Boeing Defence Australia has delivered engineering support services to the TFSPO for the past six years. It also continues to perform Hornet Upgrade Phase 2.3, which involves upgrading the Electronic Warfare Self Protection Suite on 68 aircraft and modifying 76 wing pylons. Phase 2.3 is expected to be completed in 2012.

"The RAAF's decision to award this contract to us demonstrates their faith in Boeing's ability to support the F/A-18 platform," Hume said. "We will continue working closely with our customer to maintain the Hornet's air combat capability."

Under the new contract, engineering services will now be delivered under Boeing Defence Australia's Authorised Engineering Organisation (AEO) certificate.

Australia Grounds F-111s Following Singapore Show Incident

The Royal Australian Air Force's (RAAF) aging fleet of F-111 strike aircraft was grounded after an emergency was declared during a display at the Singapore International Air Show.
On 11 February, an F-111's dump and burn display was cancelled after an in-flight incident was detected, according to The Australian.
The F-111's on-board instruments indicated an engine fire during the flying display.
A defence spokesman said the pilot terminated the display, declared a mayday, completed his safety checklist and landed without incident at Changi Air Base East.
The F-111, which has been in service with the RAAF since 1973, will retire in December 2010 and will be replaced by the F/A-18F Super Hornet.
Developed by General Dynamics, the F-111 is a medium-range interdictor and tactical strike aircraft, which also plays the role of strategic bomber, reconnaissance and electronic warfare.

The massive Joint Strike Fighter project is going to be delayed and cost more, US Deputy Secretary of Defence Bill Lynn says. But Mr Lynn could not say by how much the cost overruns and delays would increase the price tag for the Australian government, which in November committed A$3 billion to buy an initial batch of 14 yet-to-be-completed F-35 warplanes. Australia plans eventually to purchase 100 of the fifth-generation stealth warplanes at a cost of about A$16 billion. “The development was originally projected to last an additional 30 months, we think with the additional test aircraft it will be closer to a delay of about 12 or 13 months but I can't give you the cost numbers,” Mr Lynn said today during the official opening of a A$300 million shipbuilding precinct in South Australia. Earlier this month Defence Minister John Faulkner said he hoped a restructuring of the JSF program would “stabilise its schedule and cost”.

Australian Defence Force Takes Delivery of First Mercedes-Benz G-Wagons



Greg Combet, the Minister for Defence Personnel, Materiel and Science, today announced that the Australian Defence Force (ADF) has taken delivery of eleven Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon vehicles.
Under Project Land 121 the Defence Materiel Organisation is acquiring 1200 of the G-Wagon vehicles in order to replace the current fleet of Land Rover vehicles which have been in service since 1987,” Mr Combet said.
The G-Wagon offers enhanced levels of mobility and operational functionality and will provide a new capability for Defence. It is already used by the defence forces of Austria, Canada, Germany, Singapore and the United States.
The G Wagon vehicles being delivered include four-wheel drive station wagons; cab-chassis units; and six-wheel drive vehicles in both single and dual cab-chassis configuration.
These first G Wagons will undergo compliance and accepting testing program during 2010. Full production of the ADF’s G Wagon vehicles will commence later this year with deliveries to commence in 2011.
The G Wagon is being manufactured in Austria and is powered with a Mercedes-Benz 3.0 litre turbo-diesel V6 engine that will be EuroV compliant.
Specific models of the G-Wagon will be fitted with specialist modules (for example Ambulance and Command Posts).
These modules will be built by the Australian Engineering firm G.H. Varley Pty Ltd of Newcastle. This will directly create 75 and indirectly lead to a further 100 jobs for the Hunter Region.
The vehicles can also be fitted with additional armoured protection when required,” Mr Combet said.

Bushmaster Single Cab Utility selected for next stage of Australian vehicles program



18:12 GMT, February 18, 2010 Thales Australia's Bushmaster family of vehicles has received another boost, with the Single Cab Utility downselected for the Department of Defence's LAND 121 Phase 3 program.

LAND 121 Phase 3 will replace a fleet of over 2,000 Australian Defence Force field vehicles and trailers with new vehicles procured across the program's Medium Heavy Capability component. Thales Australia's Bushmaster Single Cab Utility has been downselected for the next stage of the tender evaluation process in the mediumweight category.

Chris Jenkins, Thales Australia's Managing Director, said the decision reflected the high level of industry capability, protected mobility vehicles expertise and customer knowledge available in Australia.

"The Bushmaster has been a very successful vehicle on operations, and we expect the Single Cab Utility to follow in this tradition. The successful development of the Single Cab Utility is a reflection on the extensive local expertise available to the ADF. We have worked closely with the customer for many years developing solutions that meet their unique operational requirements.

"This partnership has proven very successful, not only in terms of the creation of a sustainable local long-term relationship but also, most importantly, in protecting the lives of servicemen and women on operations."

The Single Cab Utility is a cab chassis 4 x 4 protected logistics vehicle. It can carry a 5,000 kg load on its 9.4m2 tray, while providing crew with the protection, mobility and combat flexibility to fulfil their mission in the most hostile environments.

The Single Cab Utility uses the same monocoque v-shaped hull as the combat-proven Bushmaster to provide protection against mine blast and IEDs. This technology is enhanced by upgradeable ballistic protection options for the crew cabin.

US to Deliver Joint Strike Fighter to Australia Within 12 Months
US Deputy Defense Secretary Bill Lynn said the delivery of the first joint strike fighter (JSF) to Australia would now be executed closer to the original deadline.
Lynn said development delays on the JSF programme has been shortened from 30 months to about 12 months.
The first delivery of JSF to Australia was delayed by a year, after the US defence secretary Robert Gates removed Major General David Heinz from the JSF project.
Gates also withheld $614m in payments from Lockheed, the prime contractor of the programme, in order to help fund further development.
"The development was definitely going to cost more and the unit costs have gone up and the important thing is to get it right and budget it right and that's what we think we've done," Lynn said.
Australia, which is to acquire 14 F-35 fighters to replace its aging fleet of F-18 Hornets and F-111s at a cost of $3.2bn, will later increase the numbers to 100, at a projected cost of $16bn.
A fifth-generation, single-seat, single-engine stealth multirole fighter, the JSF, also known as the F-35, can perform close air support, tactical bombing and air defence missions

Australia Announces Carl Gustaf Purchase

LONDON - Australia is purchasing new stocks of the Carl Gustaf M3 multi-purpose weapon in a deal with Saab valued in excess of $6.9 million. The Australian Defence Force has also signed a contract with BAE Systems to supply a thermal sight for the direct-fire weapon.

The deal to buy the weapon was signed late last year but has only now been announced. Australia already has an earlier version of the Carl Gustaf in its inventory.Related Topics

Greg Combet, the Australian minister for defense personnel, materiel and science, said in a statement the new lighter weight weapon would prove increased direct fire support capability for infantry, special forces and the air force's airfield defense guards.
A Saab spokesman declined to say how many weapons were involved in the new order.
However, a possible indication of the numbers of weapons was given by BAE when it announced it was providing the Australians with more than 400 uncooled AN/PAS-13C thermal weapon sights for the Carl Gustav.
BAE's U.S.-based Electronics, Intelligence & Support business is supplying the sights in a deal worth $14.2 million.
The AN/PAS-13C can be used in day and night operations and poor conditions, such as smoke and dust, and will replace the current day-only imaging and sighting system on the Swedish-built weapon.

Boeing Signs AU$44M Contract Expansion for Australian Army Rotary Wing Support
OAKEY, Queensland, Feb. 26, 2010 — Boeing [NYSE: BA] has signed an AU$44 million change proposal with the Commonwealth of Australia to increase the scope of the Army Aviation Training and Training Support (AATTS) contract.
Awarded the contract in 2007, Boeing subsidiary Boeing Defence Australia has been supporting the Australian Army’s Black Hawk and Kiowa helicopters with pilot, aircrew and technician training, operational fleet maintenance, and support services at the Army Aviation Training Centre in Oakey.
Following detailed operational reviews, the Commonwealth and Boeing Defence Australia changed the scope of the AATTS contract to reflect the Army’s current and future aircrew training requirements. Under the updated contract, Boeing Defence Australia is additionally responsible for delivering:

  • The Initial Army Pilot Helicopter Qualification Course, using the B-206 Kiowa
  • 85 percent of S-70A-9 Black Hawk pilot training
  • CH-47 Chinook helicopter instructor and technician training.

The $44 million agreement also includes the Commonwealth’s first one-year extension of AATTS, continuing the contract until September 2013. The original AATTS contract includes five one-year extension options.
“The Commonwealth’s decision to both increase the scope of AATTS and extend the contract until 2013 reinforces Boeing Defence Australia’s position as the preeminent ab-initio ['from the beginning'] training provider to the Australian Defence Force,” said Mark Brownsey, Boeing Defence Australia senior manager for Global Services & Support — Training Operations.
“To date, Boeing Defence Australia has exceeded all Australian Army training and maintenance requirements, including standing up the entire program on time, completing 100 percent of training courses on schedule, supporting close to 7,000 training sorties annually, and providing maintenance support to the Australian Defence Force Kiowa fleet, which recently achieved more than 50,000 flight hours,” said Matthew Sibree, Boeing Defence Australia AATTS project manager. “To ensure AATTS continues on time and on budget, 20 additional employees will be hired on to the 160-strong team to ensure we meet our customer’s expectations.”
The updated AATTS contract will further strengthen Boeing Defence Australia’s training capability while ensuring the Australian Army maintains a constant supply of qualified helicopter pilots, aircrew and technicians to conduct complex helicopter missions in support of domestic and global operations.
Boeing Defence Australia, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Boeing Company and a business unit of Boeing Defense, Space & Security, is a leading Australian aerospace enterprise. With a world-class team of nearly 2,000 employees at 13 locations throughout Australia and two international sites, Boeing Defence Australia supports some of the largest and most complex defense projects in Australia.

Australian newspaper Weekend Australian reports that the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) has reinstated its fleet of F-111 ‘Aardvarks’ after its recent grounding but that the air force’s F/A-18A Hornets are suffering a lack of serviceability.

The paper claims that only 21 of the RAAF’s fleet of 71 F/A-18A/Bs are currently available for the front line due to “maintenance, upgrades or safety concerns”. Defence Minister John Faulkner has apparently refused to discuss the issue but has said "The air force is at all times generating sufficient combat capability to meet government requirements."

The F-111 fleet was cleared to fly again on February 19 after a safety review following a small fire on an aircraft displaying at the recent Singapore air show. It is thought the current 15-strong force will gradually be drawn down over the next months until retirement in December.

RAAF Super Hornets preparing for flight to Australia


The first group of Royal Australian Air Force’s (RAAF) next-generation Super Hornets will arrive in Australia later this month, Chief of Air Force, Air Marshal Mark Binskin announced today.
The Super Hornets arrival will represent a major leap in Air Force capability. They are Australia’s first new air combat aircraft in 25 years.
A detachment of aircrew and maintenance personnel from RAAF’s No. 1 Squadron is currently at Naval Air Station Lemoore in California, preparing the aircraft for the series of flights to Australia.
“This is the beginning of a new chapter for Air Force. The Super Hornet is a true multi-role aircraft that, when flown and supported by RAAF’s high-calibre people, will ensure Australia’s regional air combat capability edge through to the introduction of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter,” Air Marshal Binskin said.
“Reaching this stage of the project on time and on budget has been due to a great partnership between the Royal Australian Air Force, Defence Materiel Organisation, United States Navy, The Boeing Company and their industry partners, General Electric, Northrop Grumman and Raytheon.
“The next few weeks will be a very busy time for the Super Hornet aircrew and maintainers at Lemoore. The detachment is conducting acceptance flights and ground tests on each of the aircraft.
“Another key task for the detachment will be working with an air-to-air tanker, conducting day and night refuelling flights to ensure they are ready for the journey to Australia,” Air Marshal Binskin said.
Air Force is acquiring 24 Super Hornets which will progressively arrive at their home base, RAAF Amberley near Ipswich, during 2010 and 2011.
The Super Hornets are an interim replacement for the ageing F-111s. The F-111s have served Australia well, but are now approaching the end of their operational life, and will be retired at the end of this year.
Details of the Super Hornet welcome activities are being finalised and will be announced closer to the arrival time.

Elbit Systems Awarded $298 Million Contract to Supply Command, Control and Communications System to Australia


Significant breakthrough for Elbit Systems with the Australian Defence Forces
Israel | Elbit Systems Ltd. (NASDAQ: ESLT) announced today that it was awarded a contract from the Department of Defence of the Commonwealth of Australia in the amount of approximately $298 million U.S. dollars (approximately $ 331 million Australian dollars) for the supply, integration, installation and support of a Battle Group and Below Command, Control and Communications (BGC3) system for the Australian Army’s Land 75/125 program. The BGC3 comprises a Battle Management System (BMS) for soldiers, Vehicle Mounted Commanders and Headquarters/Command Post Staff.
This project, to be performed over the next three years, will enable the Australian Army to achieve a major portion of its defence network centric warfare milestone of a networked brigade with cutting edge technology in battle management and communications systems.
The capability will increase the commander’s battlespace awareness, automate combat messaging and assist in the execution of operations. Importantly, this capability will significantly reduce the risk of casualties resulting from friendly fire. This high priority acquisition will assure improved protection and coordination for Australian Defence Forces personnel, allowing missions to be carried out more efficiently, safely and effectively.
Elbit Systems, a leading supplier of tactical Battle Management Systems, has been selected by the Australian Department of Defence following a world-wide competitive open tender.
Joseph Ackerman, President and CEO of Elbit Systems, commented: "Australia is a very important market for Elbit Systems, and we are extremely proud to be selected by the Department of Defence for this major program, one of the largest and most prestigious BMS programs in the world. The selection of our systems by the Australian Army, considered among the world's most advanced and modern fighting forces, reflects the quality and maturity of our systems, resulting from the fact they are currently in operational use by more than 20 armed forces worldwide".

Un rapport critique le coût des programmes militaires australiens


L’Australie paie beaucoup plus que d’autres pays pour acheter ses matériels militaires, a révélé une étude américaine.

Cette étude a été effectuée par les consultants McKinsey. Elle soulève de nouveaux doutes sur la capacité du gouvernement australien à financer son projet de 12 sous-marins classiques.
Selon le rapport McKinsey, les Etats-Unis et l’Australie sont les derniers des 33 pays étudiés dans le monde pour les dépenses militaires, plus précisément, les matériels obtenus pour quel budget. Le Brésil, la Pologne et la Russie sont en tête de la liste.
“En général, les pays qui privilégient leur industrie nationale de défense ont des couts d’achat plus élevés que ceux qui s’appuient sur des importations. Les pays qui achètent des matériels plus anciens sur le marché mondial, peuvent se constituer des armées très capables pour moins cher,” indique le rapport.
Le gouvernement australien privilégie actuellement la construction en Australie des sous-marins, avec une forte implication de son industrie nationale de défense.
Dans une étude menée l’an dernier, l’Australian Strategic Policy Institute avait évalué à 9 milliards AUS$ (6 milliards €) le prix d’achat de sous-marins européens sur étagère et à 36 milliards (24 milliards €) le prix de sous-marins développés et construits en Australie.

Sidney Morning Herald

PS : Les 33 pays retenus pour cette étude représentent 90% des dépenses militaires.
