Kuwait Remains Faithful to DCI for the Maintenance of Its Helicopters

DCI, a service provider with activities on the entire spectrum of defense and domestic security, announces the extension since January 2012 of a 3-year contract concerning Kuwait Air Force (KAF) helicopters.

The State of Kuwait maintains its confidence in DCI, operator of the Army's light aviation school (EA-ALAT), to maintain its 28 helicopters.

For over twenty years, DCI-COFRAS, the Army and Gendarmerie department of DCI, has ensured the operational maintenance of KAF French-manufactured helicopters.

«The trust relationship established between the State of Kuwait and DCI-COFRAS teams has allowed this contract to be established. The KAF (Kuwait Air Force) regularly underlines DCI-COFRAS teams' technical skills deployed, commitment to the notion of service and constant availability in these operations demanding extreme professional rigor», declares General de Zuchowicz, Executive Vice-President of DCI-COFRAS.

Kuwait – PATRIOT Advanced Capability (PAC-3) Missiles

WASHINGTON, July 20, 2012 – The Defense Security Cooperation Agency notified Congress today of a
possible Foreign Military Sale to the Government of Kuwait for 60 PATRIOT Advanced Capability (PAC-3)
Missiles and associated equipment, parts, training and logistical support
for an estimated cost of $4.2 billion.

The Government of Kuwait has requested a possible sale of 60 PATRIOT Advanced Capability (PAC-3)
Missiles, 4 PATRIOT radars, 4 PATRIOT Engagement Control Stations, 20 PATRIOT Launching Stations, 2
Information Coordination Centrals, 10 Electric Power Plants, communication and power equipment, personnel
training and training equipment, spare and repair parts, facility design and construction, publications and
technical documentation, U.S. Government and contractor technical and logistics personnel services and other
related elements of program and logistics support. The estimated cost is $4.2 billion.

This proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping to
improve the security of a friendly country which has been, and continues to be, an important force for political
stability and economic progress in the Middle East.

Kuwait will use the PAC-3 missiles and equipment to improve its missile defense capability, strengthen its
homeland defense, and deter regional threats. The proposed sale of PAC-3 missiles and equipment will enhance
Kuwait’s interoperability with the U.S. and its allies, making it a more valuable partner in an increasingly
important area of the world. Kuwait, which already has PAC-3 in its inventory, will have no difficulty
absorbing these additional missiles and equipment into its armed forces.

The proposed sale of this equipment and support will not alter the basic military balance in the region.

The principal contractors will be Raytheon Corporation in Tewksbury, Massachusetts; and Lockheed Martin
Missiles and Fire Control in Dallas, Texas. There are no known offset agreements proposed in connection with
this potential sale.

Implementation of this proposed sale will require the assignment of three contractor representatives to Kuwait
on a temporary basis for program, technical support, and management oversight.

There will be no adverse impact on U.S. defense readiness as a result of this proposed sale.

This notice of a potential sale is required by law and does not mean the sale has been concluded.

C'est cet effet bedouin qui nous permet d'acheter nos joujoux à prix d'amis Laughing Quand les US se remplissent les poches chez les khwalja ils nous font des prix interessants. Quand ils vendent des M1A1 aux irakiens à 12M$ la pièce ils nous le vendent à 5M$ la pièce seulement Cool même chose pour les F16 ou zid ou zid.

CAE Wins Military Contracts Valued at Approximately $200 Million




Simulator of the KC-135 Stratotanker aircrew training system.

KC-130J simulator for Kuwait Air Force; Third-year of KC-135 aircrew training services; KC-135 simulator upgrades; Long-term training services for Asian military customer

15:03 GMT, October 15, 2012 Montreal | CAE today announced that it has won a series of military contracts valued at approximately C$200 million, the majority of which involves long-term, recurring training services. They include a contract from the United States Navy to develop a KC-130J full-mission simulator for the Kuwait Air Force under a foreign military sale program and the United States Air Force exercising the option for the third-year of KC-135 tanker aircrew training services in addition to contract modifications to perform a range of KC-135 simulator upgrades. CAE has also signed long-term training services contracts with an Asian military customer.

“We are pleased to welcome the Kuwait Air Force to the long list of customers who have selected CAE as their provider of C-130 training systems and services,” said Gene Colabatistto, Group President, Military Products, Training and Services, CAE. “The Middle East and Asia are markets that are increasingly offering a solid pipeline of opportunities, and we are seeing some good potential for upgrade business as defence forces look to leverage simulation-based training for more of their training requirements. Global militaries continue to believe in the fundamental value of simulation-based training, and CAE is well-positioned around the world to deliver a range of solutions designed to enhance efficiency and save money while helping to maintain readiness.”

US NAVY/KUWAIT AIR FORCE

CAE has won a United States Navy contract to design and manufacture a KC-130J full-mission simulator for the Kuwait Air Force. The contract was awarded to CAE USA under the United States foreign military sale (FMS) program. Under terms of the contract, CAE USA will design and manufacture a KC-130J full-mission simulator that will be delivered in 2015 to Al Mubarak Air Base near Kuwait International Airport. The simulator will feature the CAE True electric motion system, CAE Medallion-6000 image generator, and common database (CDB) architecture, which enables real-time mission training and rehearsal capabilities. The KC-130J full-mission simulator will be certified by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) to Level D, the highest qualification for flight simulators.

“This KC-130J full-mission simulator will support initial, recurrent and mission training in-country for Kuwaiti KC-130J aircrews, and importantly, enable the Kuwait Air Force to focus their fleet of KC-130J aircraft on operational requirements,” said John Lenyo, President and General Manager, CAE USA. “Because of the enhanced fidelity and capability of simulation-based training, militaries are increasing the amount of synthetic training as part of the overall training curriculum and Kuwait’s KC-130J training program is a perfect example.”

US AIR FORCE KC-135 AIRCREW TRAINING SYSTEM

The U.S. Air Force has exercised the option for the third year of aircrew training services provided by CAE USA as the prime contractor on the KC-135 ATS program. CAE USA will continue to provide classroom and simulator instruction as well as upgrades, maintenance, and support of all KC-135 aircrew training devices. In addition, CAE has been awarded a contract modification to support the training system updates resulting from the Block 45 upgrade being done on the KC-135 aircraft program, as well as additional contract modifications to perform a range of upgrades to the KC-135 operational flight trainers. As part of upgrades to KC-135 training systems, CAE will incorporate CAE Flightscape’s Insight software as part of the KC-135 Training Data Acquisition, Analysis and Playback System (TDAAPS). CAE Flightscape’s latest data recording, animation and replay technology will help improve the training of KC-135 aircrews by providing brief-debrief and evidence-based training technology to deliver a practical, real world context for simulator-based training sessions.

ASIAN MILITARY CUSTOMER

CAE has signed contracts to provide helicopter and fixed-wing aircraft training over the next twenty-five years for an undisclosed Asian military customer.

Based on a working relationship spanning many years and an exceptionally positive one, the Empl company benefits from a major contract with the Kuwait National Guard, together with RMMV.

The Kuwait National Guard is the fourth of armed forces unit after the army, the air force and the navy. The business relationship with the National Guard extends as far back as the 1990s, when a major contract that included hook devices with special flat racks, troop carriers and platforms with cranes was completed. Over the years, further vehicles have been supplied to this special unit.

Empl has once again been successful in winning the tendering process for a further major contract. Following extensive testing, the acceptance procedure for the vehicles has been successfully concluded, with the first batch having already been shipped and delivered to the customer.

VARIOUS SUPPORT VEHICLES
The order covers eight vehicles. Diesel tanker superstructures with a capacity of 6,500 L. The vehicles are also equipped with a fitted winch including a rope tensioner, with forward and backward pull and a rope length of 60 m. In addition, ten 6,500 L water tank superstructures and winches were delivered to the customer.

The largest delivery, however, consisted of 65 crew transport platforms. The platform vehicles with drop-down sides and tarpaulin frames are suitable for transporting troops as well as goods. The auxiliary frame is of low-torsion design and is mounted on the chassis. A hydraulic self-recovery winch with forward and backward traction (10 t) is attached to the end of the frame. All vehicles are based on the MAN HX60 4x4 chassis.

ASPIDE 2000 BY MBDA WINS FURTHER ACCLAIM IN KUWAIT
11/01/2013



Another Aspide 2000 success in Kuwaitreaffirms the missile’s status as a major aircraft buster.

Fired from a Skyguard air defence system, the Aspide 2000 missiles brought down two Banshee remotely piloted targets at the Kuwait Air Defence Brigade's ADEIRA range during a live firing air defence exercise carried out on 18th and 19th December 2012. Both targets were destroyed, in one case by a direct hit and in the other by a close-range explosion. Intercept took place at a range of around 6 km and at an altitude of around 1,500 metres. These successful intercepts add to the already solid evidence of the reliability of this MBDA missile.

During the exercise, Aspide 2000 achieved a launch record for Kuwait - all 19 launches since 2007 having been successful despite varying weather conditions, with launches taking place both at night and day, at both medium and long ranges and at both high and low altitude.

The success of this latest Kuwait exercise is further confirmation of Aspide's effectiveness – 5,000 missiles have been produced to date - and of the robustness of the modernised system’s design. This is yet another boost to the export potential of a missile that international markets are increasingly considering as one of the best performing in the medium-range ground-to-air missile sector.

Abu Dhabi Naval Warship Builder Wins Kuwait Navy Contract


(Source: Xinhua; published Feb. 20, 2013)



ABU DHABI --- The Gulf Arab region's sole naval warship builder Abu Dhabi Ship Building (ADSB) said Wednesday at the ongoing five-day International Defense Exhibition (IDEX) that it won the Kuwait Navy's future landing craft program without disclosing the price.

ADSB, owned by Abu Dhabi sovereign wealth fund Mubadala, said in a statement that the program involves the supply of two 64- meter-long landing crafts, one 42-meter-long landing craft and five 15-meter-long composite fast landing crafts, adding that all vessels will be constructed by ADSB's facility in Abu Dhabi.

The program will last approximately 24 months and the construction is to start in mid-2013.

Meanwhile, investors reacted positively to the announcement, as ADSB shares, listed at the local Abu Dhabi bourse ADX, traded 1.40 percent higher at 1.45 Dirham (0.39 U.S. dollars) Wednesday.

The IDEX 2013 hosts 1,112 exhibiting companies from 59 countries and will close on Feb. 21.
