DSEI 2015: Kelvin Hugues announces new contract wins for its SharpEye SxV radar system

Kelvin Hughes announced during DSEI 2015 that it had a number of recent wins, including new contracts for the supply of security systems based on its SharpEye™ SxV radar. A lightweight version of the company’s X-band Long Range SharpEye™ radar, the SxV features the same solid state transceiver technology and offers the same ability to detect small, slow moving targets even in the most adverse weather conditions.




SharpEye™ SxV radars and CxEye™ display and interface software licences have been procured by C4 Planning Solutions LLC, of Blythe, Georgia, USA for the supply of ground surveillance radar and training to the Kenyan Defence Forces in Nairobi. The systems will be deployed for border surveillance and defence against illegal border movements, trafficking and terrorist activities. SxV radar is the latest innovation from Kelvin Hughes. A lightweight X-band solid state radar, it is capable of being man portable and provides 360 degree coverage in all weather conditions.

Working with Italian partners A.ST.I.M. S.r.l. and Fabio Fiorucci S.r.l, Kelvin Hughes is supplying SharpEye™ SxV radars to provide complete surveillance coverage of the Goro lagoon, located about 80 kilometres northeast of Bologna in the Adriatic Sea. Known for its € multi-million clam farming operations, the lagoon is an Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) requiring protection from poachers, illegal harvesting and other operations that threaten the habitat of the clams.

Located on the shore and providing 360 degree coverage of the entire lagoon, the radar is combined with electro optic cameras and controlled and monitored from a local control room using an A.ST.I.M. developed operator platform that utilises the Kelvin Hughes CxEye™ software.

A similar SxV system has been in operation with the Maryland Natural Resources Police in the US since last year. Used to monitor oyster sanctuary waters in Chesapeake Bay, the system made possible the arrest of two poachers within days of it being implemented. SxV radar provides a highly cost effective wide area surveillance capability.

Kelvin Hughes has also recently been contracted by Macchina Group to supply a number of SharpEye™ SxV radars for the protection of Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport. The radars will be supplied as part of the Kelvin Hughes’ Single Mast Solution (SMS) which comprises of integrated radar and electro optical cameras, mounted on Kelvin Hughes’ latest Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) through shaft module, the TMU. The units will be controlled by Kelvin Hughes’ CxEye™ software, enabling integration of the feeds from multiple sensors providing slew to cue functionality to detect track and identify targets.

Belgrade Nikola Tesla is the second fastest growing major airport in Europe and surrounded by open farmland of different types of terrain to an extent of some 5 km, presenting a distinct set of security challenges. By placing the radar and camera systems at key locations around the airport’s 5km long and 1.5 km wide perimeter, the system will provide 360 degree detection coverage, operating autonomously 24 hours a day in the harshest of weather conditions.

In addition to these contracts, Kelvin Hughes has recently been awarded an order to supply a number of its SharpEye™ SxV radars and SMS units for an undisclosed application in Saudi Arabia. The units will be deployed on mobile security platforms.

Jonathan Field, Kelvin Hughes’ Director Security Sensors and Systems, commented: “These recent contract wins demonstrate the full versatility of our SharpEye™ SxV security system – whether carried in a back pack by soldiers, located on the shore of an EEZ, sited on the perimeter of an airport or deployed on a mobile security platform, Kelvin Hughes security radar is the best detection system available today.”

UK agrees to expand defence and security cooperation with Kenya

The UK and Kenyan governments have signed an agreement to expand cooperation on defence and security issues at the UN General Assembly meeting in New York, US.
Subject to final ratification in both Parliaments, the new defence cooperation agreement is expected to significantly enhance the defence relationship, enabling Britain to provide additional support to Kenya on maritime security, and continue military training in the African country.
The new agreement, which was signed by the UK Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond and Kenyan Foreign Affairs Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed, will also lead to improved military capabilities for both sides, while allowing for concurrent jurisdiction, recognising that the laws of both countries apply to visiting forces.
Hammond said: "Today we have held discussions, which will help us tackle joint security challenges, benefitting both the UK and Kenya.
"Given the number and diversity of security threats faced by peaceful societies in the 21st century, close cooperation between partner nations is more necessary than ever before."
Approximately 10,000 UK soldiers train on Kenyan soil every year in Laikipia and Samburu, as part of an agreement signed between the two countries five years ago, as reported by Daily Nation.

In addition to defence cooperation, the two ministers also signed a new security compact underlining the nation's resolve to tackle the shared threat of terrorism.
The compact is said to build-upon and strengthen current security cooperation across areas, such as countering violent extremism, border and aviation security, as well as criminal justice. It also includes a new annual senior-level strategic dialogue, to review progress against objectives.
Areas of enhanced cooperation will see the UK and Kenya join forces to establish a new centre to provide technical training to counter improvised explosive devices.
The agreement is said to highlight the importance of working with communities to address the underlying causes of conflict, and development of an integrated cross-government approach to tackling insecurity.

Captured Kenyan Soldiers Possibly Moved
January 22, 2016



The fate of at least 12 Kenyan soldiers held by al Shabaab remains unknown, almost a week after the attack on the KDF El Adde base inside Somalia.

Sources in Somalia said the militants have moved the hostages from a village towards Jilib in the Middle Juba region on the main road from the capital Mogadishu.

A top commander only identified as Major Obuoge is said to be among those captured. Military officials will neither deny nor confirm the claims.

It is not known whether in moving the hostages the terror group was escaping from aerial bombardment by the Kenya Air Force.

Amisom seeks to reclaim the base lost after last Friday’s attack.

Jilib is the stronghold of the militants’ leadership, including leader Ahmed Abu Ubaydah. The terrorists are believed to have escaped with a Kenya-owned armoured personnel carrier seized during the attack.

Residents of El Adde and villages nearby said they heard loud explosions from the direction of the besieged KDF base on the morning of the attack.

Some al Shabaab affiliated websites purportedly showed the militants inspecting military vehicles they seized from the base. They also showed razed military vehicles.

Shabaab spokesman Abdiaziz Abu Mus’ab, through Radio Andalus, which is owned by the group, said the soldiers “are in mujahedeen jail”.

On Saturday [January 16], al Shabaab also broadcast recorded voices of what they said were captured KDF soldiers.

One of the alleged captives said he is called Isaac Balewa. “I’m appealing to the government of Kenya and the African Union to facilitate our release peacefully from al Shabaab so that we can go on with our daily lives,” he is heard saying.

Military officials said the operation to rescue the officers is very delicate as they are being used as human shields.

“We don’t want more casualties,” the Chief of Defence Forces, Gen Samson Mwathethe, said on Sunday.

The scene of the attack remains dangerous, as it is believed the terrorists may have heavily mined and booby-trapped it. The bodies of Kenyan soldiers are said to be still at the scene of attack, which is now almost inaccessible.

So far, about 30 survivors and an unknown number of bodies have been brought back to Nairobi.

As reported by the Shabelle Media Network

Kenya to buy Chinese VN-4 multi-role light armoured personnel carriers
Feb 1, 2016








Kenya has signed a contract to buy VN-4 multi-role light armoured personnel carriers. The VN-4 is produced in China and is manufactured by China North Industries Corporation (NORINCO).

Kenya has bought about 20 armored vehicles to equip for police forces, armored troops, peacekeeping and anti-terrorism.

The VN-4 is a light armored vehicle that can be outfitted for certain scenarios. It is very mobile with a top speed of 115 km/h and has independent suspension for rough terrain. The armor is welded shut and primarily provides protection from small arms fire and splinters from explosives.

The VN-4 also was used by the Bolivarian National Guard. The Venezuelan government order 191 additional VN-4 vehicles.

US to provide Kenya with Huey II helos

Gareth Jennings, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
17 March 2016


Kenya is to be supplied with five Bell UH-1H Huey II helicopters by the United States, according to a notice posted on the Federal Business Opportunities website on 16 March


A sources sought synopsis for the procurement and delivery of five baseline Huey II helicopters, aircraft spare parts, special tools, and operator and maintainer training for the Republic of Kenya was posted on the site by the US Army Non-Standard Rotary-Wing Aircraft Project Office (NSRWA PO).

No solicitation has yet been filed, and the NSRWA PO expects responses no later than 1200 h Central Time on 28 March. No information related to possible delivery timelines was disclosed.

While the Kenya Army operates a limited number of helicopters, most of the country's rotary-winged-lift capabilities are fielded by the air force. According to IHS Jane's World Air Forces , the Kenya Air Force currently lists in its inventory two Mil Mi-171 'Hip' helicopters that were procured in 2010 and 11 Eurocopter SA330 Super Pumas dating back to 1977.

Although the Kenya Air Force is the largest and arguably the most professional air arm in East

Africa, it has experienced declining levels of operability. Ageing equipment is increasingly becoming unserviceable and attrition losses have been noted. This is especially true of the Super Pumas, which have in the past been sent to South Africa for extended periods of maintenance.

It is likely that the Huey II helicopters will initially augment the Super Pumas, before perhaps replacing them at a later date with further examples to follow.

The mission of the NSRWA PMO is to procure, field, and sustain non-standard rotorcraft for the US Department of Defense (DoD), allied countries, or as directed by the Office of the Secretary of Defense in support of Overseas Contingency Operations, and it is the DoD's focal point for non-standard rotary wing aircraft.

Kenya Military Academy Graduation Ceremony
April 11, 2016






The Chief of Defence Forces (CDF) General Samson Mwathethe on behalf of the Commander-in-Chief of the Defence Forces President Uhuru Kenyatta, on Thursday 7th April 2016 presided over the Commissioning of Specialists and Special Duty Officer Cadets at the Kenya Military Academy (KMA) in Lanet, Nakuru.

Speaking moments after reading the Presidential Commissioning Parchment to the officers, the CDF challenged them to face the task ahead of them with diligence, integrity, self sacrifice and dedication, as they had been entrusted with great responsibility following their commissioning. The CDF urged the officers to consider their commissioning as a special bond between them, the president of the nation and the country of Kenya, and guard on this bond jealously. He mentioned that it was paramount that the newly-commissioned officers adhere to the presidential Commissioning Parchment and swearing instructions, which stand as a guide to them in their daily service to the Defence Forces and the country.

The CDF at the same time greatly thanked Kenyans for their support, goodwill and encouragement, terming this as one of the main pillars that kept the entire Kenya Defence Forces going. He noted that had it not been for Kenyans, the Defence Forces would not confidently execute their roles, particularly the roles entrusted on them by the United Nations and African Union on peacekeeping.

The CDF also appreciated and thanked the entire Kenya Military Academy, from its Commandant, officers and even instructors, for the tireless work of preparing the new officers. He urged them to maintain the high level of standards that the Kenya Military Academy is known to possess.

Before addressing the parade, the CDF had recognised four of the Specialists who emerged most outstanding. Senior Under Officer Johnson Ogutu was awarded the best Cadet in Leadership and Command and Winner of Leadership and Command Trophy, while the best among the ladies and Second best Cadet in Leadership and Command and Winner of Leadership and Command, Cadet Adjutant Wilfrida Amondi, received a shield from the CDF for the same. At the same time, Junior Under Officer Robert Tsimba received the best Cadet in Character Development and Winner of Commandant’s trophy, while Junior Under Officer Simon Lele Apeyan was awarded with the Second Best Cadet in Character Development and Winner of Commandant’s Shield.

The newly-commissioned officers that include Doctors, Engineers, Technicians, Architects, Surveyors among other professions, trained at KMA for five months, where the training’s main goal was to prepare them for the military working environment. They now proceed to various Kenya Defence Forces Units to progress their careers and serve the country in their respective fields.

Others present during the function include the Principal Secretary Ministry of Defence Ambassador Kirimi Kaberia, Vice Chief of Defence Forces Lieutenant General Joseph Kasaon, Deputy Army Commander Major General Johnson Ondieki, Kenya Air Force Commander Major General Samuel Thuita, Kenya Navy Commander Major General Levi Mghalu, Assistant Chief of Defence Forces (Personnel and Logistics) Major General Samuel Nandwa, Commandant KMA Major General George Owinow, among other senior military officers.

Kenya Readies to Buy New Patrol Ship
April 15, 2016


Kenya is set to buy a ship worth Ksh3.5 billion ($34.6 million) for combating illegal fishing in its territorial waters in the Indian Ocean.

Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries secretary Willy Bett said the patrol vessel had been ordered from Pakistan and is expected in January.

“The government is determined to root out illegal trawler fishing to prevent foreigners from plundering our marine fishery resources,” Mr Bett said during a meeting between his ministry and the parliamentary committee on agriculture at Sarova Whitesands Beach Resort in Mombasa on Tuesday.

A lack of patrol vessels has made it difficult to contain illegal fishing targeting valuable species such as tuna, which fetch higher prices in the global markets.

Kenyan marine fisheries contribute a paltry five per cent of the 174,000 metric tonnes of fish produced in the country.

According to the Food and Agriculture Organisation, Kenya has the potential to produce more than 174,000 metric tonnes of fish annually.

Earlier, some Coast leaders had expressed concern over the government’s failure to address illegal trawler fishing that threatens to deplete some fish species.



Discard smaller fish

Over the years, local fishermen have complained that trawlers have been fishing up to the seashores targeting prawns and lobsters off the coast of Malindi and Lamu.

After fishing, the trawlers discard smaller fish on the beach, which local fishermen claim has contributed to dwindling stocks in the sea.

In January 2014, President Uhuru Kenyatta said Kenya loses an estimated Ksh10 billion ($98.8 million) annually due to illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing in its territorial waters. He said the government would buy a patrol vessel to help curb illegal fishing.

Six years ago, Marine Fisheries Task Force reported that Kenya loses Ksh12 billion ($118.6 million) annually due to illegal fishing.

Kenya’s marine fish landings are almost all from the more than 10,000 fishermen operating 4,000 small boats with gillnets, hook and lines, shark nets, beach seines and traps within the inshore areas.

Kenyan Military Aircraft Causes Airport Delays
September 8, 2016 53
SHARE Facebook Twitter
Several passengers were on Wednesday [September 7] morning stranded at the Moi International Airport after its runway was temporarily closed due to an ‘accident’.

Sources at the busy airport claimed that flights were delayed for more than two hours after a tyre of a Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) aircraft burst during a normal drill near their military base forcing Kenya Airports Authority and military officials to shut down the runaway for a while.

But when contacted, the airport OCPD John Otieno said he is not authorized to talk about matters concerning military operations referring the Nation to the KDF.

“We are not authorized to talk about such issues,” he said.

The airport officials also remained tight-lipped referring Nation to the KAA officials in Nairobi.

“A detailed report has been sent to Nairobi please ask them, we are not authorized to talk to the media,” said a KAA senior official who sought anonymity.

However, taxi operators told the Nation that a KDF plane had burst causing panic at the airport.

“It took them at least four hours to clear the runaway, it was closed after a KDF plane developed some ‘problems’ others are saying it was a tyre burst others are saying mechanical problems, we are not sure, go ask the officials,” said one of the Taxi operator who only referred himself with one name, James.

The taxi operator said the ‘accident’ happened near the military base.

“What I heard is that there was a normal drill and during take off the tyre burst. It’s nothing major. You know the airport is using one runway no wonder it is making news,” he added.

Passengers who were stranded left the airport using taxis.

When Nation team arrived at the airport they found the runway back to business with planes landing and taking off.

Bell Helicopter, Ft. Worth, Texas, was awarded a $34,541,911 firm-fixed-price, foreign military sales contract (Uganda) to produce and deliver five Huey II helicopters, spare parts, program management, special tools, and other program necessities. Bids were solicited via the Internet with one received. Work will be performed in Ozark, Alabama, with an estimated completion date of Dec. 29, 2017. Fiscal 2016 other procurement funds in the amount of $34,541,911 were obligated at the time of the award. Army Contracting Command, Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, is the contracting activity (W58RGZ-16-C-0065).

Ces deux marchés ont été annoncés en mars dernier (Kenya) et en août (Ouganda) par l'US Army Non-Standard Rotary-Wing Aircraft Project Office (NSRWA PO). Les appareils pour l'Ouganda sont des Huey d'occasion, ce qui explique la différence de valeur des 2 FMS.

The Kenya Defence Forces received six Bell Huey II helicopters valued at $106 million (Sh11 billion) from USA.

That was reported by www.the-star.co.ke.

The U.S Government has donated military helicopters to the Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) to help in the war against terror. They will assist troops who are part of the African Union Mission in Somalia, that has been conducting operations against terror group al Shabaab.

US ambassador Robert Godec said Kenya has made good progress in strengthening security and that his country will continue giving support.

“The US welcomes the efforts Kenya is making. We are going to stand shoulder to shoulder with you in this war,” said Godec.

He noted that the delivery was a follow up to a cooperation memorandum the two countries entered in 2010.

The other two will be delivered to the Kenya Defence Forces in May 2017.

Des Air Tractor AT-802 pour le Kenya ?

Le Département d'état américain vient d'approuver une possible vente au Gouvernement kényan pour des avions d'attaque au sol Air Tractor AT-802 avec son armement et sa maintenance associée. Le coût estimé est de 418 millions de dollars. L'Agence américaine a délivré le certificat FMS le 19 janvier 2017.

Le gouvernement du Kenya avait demandé une vente de maximum de douze AT-802L Air Tractor et de deux AT-504 pour la formation. L’armement inclut des pods roquettes, des missiles antichar Hellfire ou des bombes.
Cette possible vente contribuerait à favoriser un partenaire régional fort, chef de file de la sécurité régionale qui entreprend des opérations sensibles contre Al Shabaab, note l'agence américaine.

Ces appareils anti-guérilla compléteraient les vénérables F-5 kenyans, tout en affichant un cout de mise en œuvre contenu.
Le maitre d'oeuvre de ce contrat sera la société américaine L-3 Communications, Division Platform Integration, basée au Texas.

Le Kenya rejoindrait une longue liste d'utilisateurs export de cet appareil, dont les Emirats Arabes Unis, le Yémen ou la Jordanie.

“Industry
US approves MD 530F helos for Kenya
Gareth Jennings, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
03 May 2017
The US State Department has approved the sale to Kenya of 12 MD Helicopters Inc (MDHI) MD 530F scout and light attack platforms for operations against al-Shabaab and in support of the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM).
Seen here in Afghan service, the MD 530F will enable Kenya to better combat al-Shabaab at the same time as supporting the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM). (US DoD)
The approval for the Foreign Military Sale (FMS), which was announced by the US Defense Security and Co-operation Agency (DSCA) on 2 May, covers the 12 helicopters; 24 FN Herstal 12.7 mm (.50 cal) Heavy Machine Gun Pods (HMPs) and 400,000 rounds of ammunition; as well as 24 seven-tube M260 launchers for 70 mm (2.75 in) rockets, along with 4,032 M151 70 mm rockets and 1,536 M274 70 mm smoke rockets. The HMP has an effective range of about 1,900 m, while the 70 mm rockets allow the pilot to engage a target from more than four times this distance at some 8,000 m.
Also included are communications and navigation equipment, contractor logistics support, training, US government technical assistance, airframe and weapon system spare parts support, Contractor Field Service Representative (CFSR) support, and Special Assigned Airlift Mission (SAAM) flight delivery support. The total estimated cost is USD253 million.
"This proposed sale contributes to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by improving the security of a strong regional partner who is a regional security leader, undertaking critical operations against al-Shabaab, and a troop contributor to the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM). [It] will advance Kenya's efforts to conduct scout and attack rotary-wing aircraft operations in support of their AMISOM mission," the DSCA said.
The MD 530F (also designated MD 530G I by MDHI) is the latest in a line of MD 500-series helicopters that trace their lineage back to the Hughes OH-6 Cayuse of the Vietnam War. In helicopter terms, it is a simple and rugged design and so relatively easy to maintain and support.”
