Australia extends security mission in Afghanistan

Julian Kerr, Sydney - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
08 July 2016



About 270 Australian troops training and advising the Afghan security forces will remain in Afghanistan into 2017, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull announced on 8 July. Sources said the current commitment was to the middle of next year but could be further extended.

Australia will also extend its AUD100 million annual financial contribution to Afghan security forces until 2020, Turnbull said in a joint statement with defence minister Marise Payne and foreign minister Julie Bishop.

The statement followed US President Barack Obama's 7 July announcement that 8,400 US troops would remain in Afghanistan into 2017: beyond the planned withdrawal date.

Australie, les trois derniers CH-47F livrés !





Philadelphia, Boeing a livré trois derniers CH-47F « Chinook » à l'armée australienne en seulement 85 jours. L’augmentation de la production et l'excellente coopération avec l'Australie ont permis de livrer les derniers exemplaires en un temps record.

Rappel :

L'Australie avait exprimé son intérêt pour l'achat de 3 hélicoptères lourds supplémentaires Boeing CH-47F "Chinook" en décembre 2015. Au total, l’inventaire atteindrait alors le chiffre de dix appareils de ca type. Le montant de la transaction est estimé à près de 180 millions de dollars.

Les CH-47F "Chinook" australiens sont dotés de radios cryptées et d’un système complet de guerre-électronique avec détecteurs de radar et d’alerte d’approche missiles.

Le Boeing CH-47F :

Les nouveaux CH-47F disposent de caractéristiques améliorées en vue de la survie avec notamment un système directionnel de contre-mesures électronique à infrarouges, une meilleure protection balistique et un carénage résistant à l'écrasement. L’équipage dispose de sièges blindés. Le CH-47F possède une cellule et une avionique modernisée, ainsi qu'un poste de pilotage automatique numérique.

Le premier PC-21 australien !





Pilatus Aircraft a débuté ces jours les essais de moteur et de roulage au sol du premier exemplaire du PC-21 destiné à Royal Australian Air Force. L’avionneur suisse démontre une nouvelle fois, sa capacité à monter en puissance en vue de répondre rapidement à la demande de ses clients. En effet, ce premier PC-21 destiné à l’Australie, débute ses tests sept mois seulement après la signature du contrat.

Rappel :

Le contrat de services d'une valeur de 1,2 milliard de dollars verra Pilatus Aircraft livrer en partenariat avec Lockheed-Martin Australia 49 avions écoles de nouvelle génération PC-21. Le contrat comprend également sept simulateurs de vol, ainsi que l’ensemble des systèmes d’apprentissage au sol et pièces détachées. Ce nouveau système de formation va assurer aux pilotes les connaissances et les compétences nécessaires pour leurs permettre de passer directement sur des avions militaires de pointes, comme le Super Hornet et le futur F-35.

6ème client :

L’Australie devient ainsi le 6ème client pour le système d’entrainement PC-21, les autres pays sont : la Suisse avec 8 appareils (2 en options), Singapour 19 aéronefs, les Emirats Arabes Unis 25 appareils, l’Arabie Saoudite 55 appareils en commandes et le Qatar avec 24 appareils en commandes.

La génération PC-21:

Le PC-21 permet une formation complète des élèves pilotes et ceci avec des possibilités offrant une nouvelle dimension. En effet, il s’agit là, d’un système d’écolage en vol performant, qui remplace totalement la transition sur avion école à réaction de type Hawk ou Alpha jet. En effet, le PC-21 offre la possibilité unique au monde d’assurer une transition directe vers des chasseurs modernes, tels que les F/A-18, Rafale, Gripen, Eurofighter, F-35 pour ne citer que ceux-là. Il est également possible d’opter pour une combinaison en binôme avec un jet école, dans ce cas la formation sur jet peut être réduite en nombre d’heures. Les coûts de formation, de maintenance sont très largement diminués, sans oublier la réduction significative des nuisances sonores et de l’optimisation de la consommation de kérosène. L'avion permet une simulation complète et ceci sans armement, car ceux-ci sont simulés grâce à une interface spécialement développée pour l’avion.

Australian Defence Force PC-21 Completes First Flight
(Source: Pilatus; issued July 21, 2016)
Seven months after contract signature, the first of 49 Pilatus PC-21 turboprop trainers ordered by Australia made its first flight today in Stans, Switzerland. It will be delivered to Australia in June 2017 after completing testing and verification work. (Pilatus photo)
STANS, Switzerland --- Pilatus Aircraft Ltd is pleased to announce that the first of 49 PC-21 aircraft destined for the Australian Defence Force has successfully completed its initial production test flight at the factory in Stans, Switzerland. The flight took place only seven months after contract signature.

Under a contract signed in December 2015 aimed at harmonising Australian Defence Force flight training across all three services – Army, Navy and Air Force – Pilatus will deliver a total of 49 PC-21 which will operate from four Royal Australian Air Force bases. Pilatus will also supply significant elements of ground based training equipment and the in-service support capability.

This first PC-21, registered as A54-001, will be handed over to the Royal Australian Air Force at East Sale in June 2017 after completion of testing and verification work in both Switzerland and Australia.

Oscar J. Schwenk, Chairman of Pilatus, commented:

"This initial flight of the first Australian PC-21, only seven months after contract signature, is a remarkable achievement and illustrates both the commitment of Pilatus and the hard work of all those involved in the project".

Under the AIR 5428 project the PC-21 aircraft will replace both the aging PC-9 fleet, which has been in service since 1988, and also the CT-4 aircraft currently used for basic training. The PC-9 is due to be withdrawn in 2019 after thirty years of service and more than 500,000 flying hours. Originally intended to be withdrawn after 20 years of operation, the extended service life of the PC-9 is testament to Pilatus quality and customer support.

Markus Bucher, CEO of Pilatus, said:

"Having worked directly with the Australian Defence Force for many years, I am delighted to see Pilatus continuing to deliver outstanding service. The first flight of this aircraft, the very first Australian PC-21, marks a very significant chapter in the continuing relationship between the Commonwealth and Pilatus. We look forward to many more."

The PC-21s for Australia will form the backbone of future pilot training for the Australian Defence Force for the next 25 years.

Pilatus will continue to provide the Australian Defence Force with premium Swiss quality and work with our partners to provide a proven world class training system – the Pilatus PC-21.

Australian government body criticises domestic submarine build plan

Jon Grevatt, Bangkok - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
26 July 2016

Australia's Productivity Commission - the government's independent research and advisory body - has questioned the industrial efficiency of building the Royal Australian Navy's (RAN's) next-generation submarines in Australia.

In its annual Trade and Assistance Review , published on 25 July, the commission said the decision to build the 12 Collins-class replacement submarines in Australia confers significant premiums for local construction and industrial assistance.

Estimating that this local-build premium will increase the cost of the programme by 30% compared to overseas construction, the commission also pointed to the government's Defence Industry Policy Statement , which was published earlier this year and outlined investment of AUD1.6 billion (USD1.2 billion) over the next decade for in industry support programmes to promote skills, exports, and research and development.

RAN receives final MH-60R Seahawk Romeo
Ridzwan Rahmat, Singapore - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
02 August 2016

The Royal Australian Navy (RAN) has taken delivery of its 24th and final MH-60R Seahawk Romeo maritime helicopter from Lockheed Martin, the company announced on 28 July.

The aircraft was handed over a day prior to the announcement at Lockheed Martin's facility in Owego, New York. The RAN is the first international customer of the 'Romeo' version of the aircraft.

Australia acquired the helicopters in June 2011 under the country's Project AIR 9000 Phase 8 to replace the RAN's 16 S-70B-2 Seahawk helicopters in the anti-submarine warfare (ASW) and anti-surface warfare (ASuW) roles. The first and second airframes were accepted by the RAN in January 2014.

"The Royal Australian Navy has formed the first three embarked flights, conducted the first Hellfire missile shoot, and conducted a highly successful 'DIPEX' [an ASW exercise] against a Collins Class submarine," said Commodore Scott Lockey, director general Navy Aviation Systems at the RAN, in a statement on the delivery.

To prosecute submarines, the MH-60R is equipped with the AN/AQS-22 Airborne Low Frequency Sonar system and can carry the Mk 54 lightweight torpedo.

Besides ASW and ASuW operations, the RAN also deploys its MH-60R helicopters in the secondary roles of search-and-rescue, personnel transport, and logistics support.

RIMPAC 2016: USN hones interoperability with partner countries in 'most complex' MCM drill

Ridzwan Rahmat, Singapore - IHS Jane's Navy International
04 August 2016



Key Points
The US Navy has completed complex mine countermeasures drills with partner services at 'RIMPAC' 2016
The exercise aims to boost interoperability between the navies in handling mine warfare threats
The US Navy (USN) has concluded a multilateral exercise that aims to improve its mine countermeasures (MCM) interoperability with partner navies.

The exercise, which took place in and around waters off Southern California over four weeks, was conducted as part of the US Pacific Fleet-hosted Rim of the Pacific ('RIMPAC') 2016 maritime exercise.

Partner services in the drill included the Royal Australian Navy (RAN), the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN), the German Armed Forces, the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF), the Mexican Navy (Armada de México), and the Chilean Navy (Armada de Chile).

In its statement, the USN described the MCM drill as the service's "most complex mine warfare exercise" given the number of participating services, and the inaugural deployment of a Whidbey Island-class dock landing ship, USS Pearl Harbor (LSD 52), as a forward staging base for the multinational forces.

In addition to that MH-53E Sea Dragon helicopters - airborne mine countermeasures (AMCM) derivatives of the CH-53E Super Stallion - conducted deck landing qualifications on Pearl Harbor 's flight deck as part of the exercises.

"These firsts during 'RIMPAC' [Southern California] 2016 provided a distinct and unique environment and experience for participants", said the USN.

"What was great about this exercise is that the forces of multiple nations came together to execute a series of very complicated evolutions and did so in a seamless and timely manner", said Commander David Burke of the USN's Task Force 177.

In total the participating services detected and disposed a total of 77 mines over the course of 78 operational dives, 300 flight hours, and 77 autonomous underwater vehicle operations.

"RIMPAC' 2016 ran from 30 June to 4 August and involved 45 ships, five submarines, more than 200 aircraft, and 25,000 personnel from 27 countries.

Japan's new defence minister, Tomomi Inada, vowed on 4 August to "fully prepare" the country's Self-Defense Forces (SDF) for expanded missions overseas under the new security laws.

"[The ministry] will take all appropriate measures so that the [SDF] can adequately conduct missions given to them," Inada was quoted by Kyodo news agency as saying a day after the lawmaker, known for her nationalist views on history, assumed the post.

Since the new security legislation took effect in March, the focus has been on when Tokyo will expand the role of the SDF engaged in UN peacekeeping operations in South Sudan.


Key Points
HMAS Ballarat has successfully launched two Evolved SeaSparrow Missiles simultaneously
Launch proves out the platform's recently completed anti-ship missile defence upgrades
The Royal Australian Navy's (RAN's) ANZAC (MEKO 200)-class guided-missile frigate HMAS Ballarat (155) has successfully demonstrated its latest anti-ship missile defence capabilities during a live-fire exercise in the waters off Hawaii, the service disclosed on 4 August.

The exercise, which included the firing of three RIM-162 Evolved SeaSparrow Missiles (ESSMs), was conducted as part of the US Pacific Fleet-hosted Rim of the Pacific ('RIMPAC') 2016 international maritime drills. Two of the missiles were fired simultaneously, said the RAN.

Also conducted during the tests, were a launch of Ballarat 's Harpoon anti-ship missile, and two Hellfire missiles from the platform's embarked MH-60R Seahawk helicopter.

Ballarat received a number of upgrades to improve its anti-ship missile defence capabilities in 2015. These included the installation of the CEAFAR S-band active phased-array radar, the CEAMOUNT X-band multichannel active phased-array missile fire-control illuminator, the Saab Systems 9LV 453 combat management system, and the Sagem Vampir NG infrared search-and-track system.

These upgrades enable the frigate to identify, track and guide its ESSMs simultaneously, as per what was demonstrated at 'RIMPAC' 2016. According to the RAN, the missiles successfully terminated their designated targets during the exercise that was conducted on 14 July.

Australia has been participating in the 'RIMPAC' series of exercises since 1971. Besides Ballarat , other participating assets from Australia include three AP-3C Orion maritime patrol aircraft, the RAN's lead Canberra-class amphibious assault ship (L02) and another ANZAC-class frigate, HMAS Warramunga (152).

"RIMPAC' 2016 was held in and around waters of Hawaii from 30 June to 4 August and involved 45 ships, five submarines, more than 200 aircraft, and 25,000 personnel from 27 countries.

Exercise PB16: US Air Force F-16s Receive RAAF Tanker Support
(Source: US Air Force via Australian Defence Force; issued Aug 09, 2016)
RAAF DARWIN, Australia --- For the first time, U.S. Air Force F-16C aircraft have deployed to Exercise PITCH BLACK 16 (PB16) in partnership with the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) KC-30A Multi-Role Tanker Transport.

On July 19, a RAAF KC-30A flew non-stop with six F-16Cs from Kadena Air Base, Japan to RAAF Base Darwin in just over six hours.

RAAF Group Captain (GPCAPT) Adam Williams, Officer Commanding of No. 86 Wing, said it was the first time that a RAAF air-to-air refuelling tanker deployed in support of U.S. Air Force fighter aircraft to Australia.

“The KC-30A conducted 35 contacts with the six F-16Cs, transferring a total of 55.8 tonnes of fuel to the F-16Cs, or nearly 70,000 litres,” GPCAPT Williams said. “The air-to-air refuelling boom on the KC-30A performed well, with no significant issues.”

“Despite some periods of moderate turbulence en route, they completed the 5,400-kilometre journey safely,” Williams said.

Return trips saw the KC-30A deploy a total of 12 F-16Cs with the 14th Fighter Squadron in the week prior to PB16.

Commander of the 14th FS, Lt. Col. Mark Heusinkveld, said the support provided by the KC-30A was a testament to the interoperability between partner nations at PB16.

“The refueling not only provides mutually beneficial training between U.S. and Australian air forces, but also demonstrates the close military ties between our nations,” Lt. Col. Mark Heusinkveld said.

“It's always advantageous when training opportunities like these present themselves,” Heusinkveld added.

“This strengthening of our multilateral relationship will only continue as we train and improve our alliance capabilities in the upcoming weeks.”

The deployment builds on successful refuelling trials between the RAAF KC-30A and U.S. Air Force F-16s assigned to Edwards Air Force Base, Calif., conducted in late 2015 and early 2016.

To refuel the F-16Cs, the RAAF KC-30A used its 18-metre-long Advanced Refuelling Boom System (ARBS), controlled by an Air Refuelling Operator in the KC-30A’s cockpit through the use of fly-by-wire controls and 3D Glasses.

As each F-16C flew in close formation behind the KC-30A, the ARBS would ‘plug’ into a fuel receptacle on the F-16C and commence refuelling.

GPCAPT Williams said the KC-30A would refuel U.S. Air Force F-16Cs during PB16, as well as the E-7A Wedgetail and F/A-18s participating in the exercise.

“This deployment is a significant milestone for the RAAF’s KC-30A, as it demonstrates our ability to refuel international F-16s within the Asia Pacific region as well as during operations further abroad,” said Williams. “This will further reinforce the close bonds between our Air Forces in the field of air-to-air refuelling.”

PB16 is scheduled from July 29-19 Aug, 2016, and is the RAAF Chief of Air Force’s biennial capstone international engagement activity with forces drawn from a wide range of regional, coalition and allied nations. PB16 allows participant nations to exercise deployed units in the tasking, planning and execution of Offensive Counter Air (OCA) and Offensive Air Support (OAS) while utilizing one of the largest training airspace areas in the world.

Saab Continues to Enhance the Australian Army’s Ground-Based Air Defence Capability
(Source: Saab AB; issued Aug 15, 2016)
Defence and security company Saab has signed a contract with the Australian Defence Force to upgrade the Army’s RBS 70 ground-based air defence weapon system and Giraffe AMB radar. The contract has a combined value of approximately AUD32.5 million.

Delivered under the AIR 90 programme, the existing Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) capability of the RBS 70 and Giraffe AMB systems will be upgraded to include Mode 5 functionality. The Mode 5 waveform uses modern modulation, coding, and cryptographic techniques to overcome performance and security limitations in the current Mode 4 waveform.

Additionally, Mode 5 systems provide expanded data handling capabilities to securely pass GPS position and other extended data. The IFF is a critical safety feature of any ground-based air defence capability as it dramatically reduces the risk of incorrectly engaging friendly aircraft. This upgrade will support Australia’s Ground-Based Air Defence capability operating in a joint and coalition airspace environment beyond 2030.

The RBS 70 weapon system has been in service in Australia since 1987. Significant enhancements to both the weapon sight and the missile have ensured that it remains a modern and potent missile system to counter a constantly evolving air threat. The Giraffe AMB radar was acquired in 2010 and is part of the capability of the Army’s 16th Air Land Regiment. It provides high-fidelity airspace situational awareness while simultaneously ensuring early warning of incoming rocket and mortar attacks, and locating hostile indirect fire.

“Saab’s IFF Mode 5 upgrade will ensure the Australian Army’s RBS 70 and Giraffe AMB radar capabilities continue to provide world-leading force protection against a wide range of air threats,” says Dean Rosenfield, Managing Director of Saab Australia.

“Saab Australia has been the Australian Army’s Ground-Based Air Defence trusted capability partner for many years and we look forward to growing this relationship through future Ground Based Air and Missile Defence programs”, says Rosenfield.


For three decades, Saab Australia, which is part of Saab business area Surveillance, has successfully delivered and supported the Australian Army’s Ground-Based Air Defence capability. Saab’s commitment to innovation and technological advancement ensures world-leading capability for modern defence forces. Saab Australia’s local expertise and experience makes it the perfect Ground-Based Air and Missile Defence capability partner for the Australian Army, now and into the future.

Saab serves the global market with world-leading products, services and solutions within military defence and civil security. Saab has operations and employees on all continents around the world. Through innovative, collaborative and pragmatic thinking, Saab develops, adopts and improves new technology to meet customers’ changing needs.

The Royal Australian Navy's (RAN's) ANZAC (MEKO 200)-class guided-missile frigate HMAS Toowoomba has begun anti-ship missile defence (ASMD) upgrade works, the service disclosed on 17 August.

Work on the ship commenced on 1 August at the Henderson Shipyard in Western Australia, and the platform is scheduled to undock in September 2016, the service added.

The ASMD upgrades are being conducted under an AUD650 million (USD499 million) programme, known as the Project SEA 1448 Phase 2, to bolster the ANZAC class' anti-ship missile defence capabilities.

Toowoomba is expected to receive a number of systems including the installation of the CEAFAR S-band active phased-array radar, the CEAMOUNT X-band multichannel active phased-array missile fire-control illuminator, the Saab Systems 9LV 453 combat management system, and the Sagem Vampir NG infrared search-and-track system.
