Tenders Sought for Pilot Training Aircraft


(Source: New Zealand Government Executive; issued Dec. 7, 2012)



Tenders are about to be sought for a new military pilot training capability says Defence Minister Dr Jonathan Coleman.

“The requirement for a modernised pilot training system with suitable aircraft is clear and Cabinet has agreed to the next step in the process with the Ministry of Defence to issue a Request for Tender.

Pilot training is currently conducted using the single engine CT-4E Airtrainers for the primary stage and the twin engine turbo-prop King Air B200s for the advanced stage of the “Wings Course”.

The service life of the current CT-4Es is due to end in 2018 and the King Air B200s lease expires in 2018.

“The tender being offered is to supply a new permanent pilot training capability including aircraft (leased or owned), a simulator package, and a maintenance and support package, said Dr Coleman.

“We have invested in a modern generation of new and upgraded aircraft and helicopters. The Air Force’s entire operational fleet is being replaced or upgraded including modern avionics and cockpits. The tools to develop the flying standards of our trainee pilots are also required.”

“Cabinet’s eventual decision on aircraft types and ownership and maintenance options will be assessed against pricing comparisons and the ability to meet technical and performance requirements,” he said.

A Request for Information from Industry was held this year and the formal tender by the Ministry of Defence will be issued in the next few days. Cabinet is expected to consider the tender options in the latter half of next year when it receives an Implementation Business Case.

Upgrade for NZDF Frigates

Tenders will be sought to upgrade the self-defence and sensor capabilities of the Royal New Zealand navy frigates HMNZS Te Kaha and HMNZS Te Mana, Defence Minister Dr Jonathan Coleman announced today.

“The frigates are a vital part of our Defence Force but the weapons and sensor systems were designed in the late 1980s and require a mid-life upgrade,” said Dr Coleman.

Cabinet has approved a Detailed Business Case and a Request for Tender will be issued by the Ministry of Defence early next year.

The project aims to replace the hardware and software of the Combat Management Systems on the ships, modernise radars and sensors, and replace the self defence missile systems.

“This will address issues of obsolescence with the ships technology as well as ensuring the vessels are a credible capability which can operate in the South Pacific and wider Asia Pacific region” said Dr Coleman.




“The Defence White Paper 2010 identified the ANZAC frigates would require an upgrade by 2017 to address obsolescence, surveillance systems, and anti-missile protection. The government is delivering on the White Paper,” said Dr Coleman.

The ANZAC frigates’propulsion and close-in weapon systems have already been upgraded. The next tier of work would effectively complete a mid-life upgrade ensuring another 15 years service life.

“No funding commitment has yet been made. Only after going to market through an open and competitive tender process will the government consider making its investment decision,” said Dr Coleman.

Cabinet is likely to further consider the project in the latter half of next year, and once the commercially sensitive tender process is completed give an indication on costs.
The project will be funded by a combination of depreciation and savings from within existing baselines and will require no further money.

Above the waterline propeller system debut



The Contrapel Hybrid Drive carries out all the functions of both propellers and waterjets



New Zealand based marine propulsion research and development company Contrapel Ltd has released details of its new propulsion system for boats.


The system is claimed to be capable of making future boats more economical, manoeuvrable, safer, stronger and better for the environment.



Shown to an enthusiastic marine industry for the first time at the recent Auckland On Water Boat Show, the Contrapel Hybrid Drive carries out all the functions of both propellers and waterjets with none of the drawbacks of either.

“The Contrapel technology is a propeller system working above the waterline, said Contrapel founder and managing director Barry Davies. “Externally it resembles a traditional waterjet, however internally the method for developing thrust has much more in common with conventional propeller systems.”

The Contrapel drive uses a pair of contra-rotating, fully enclosed hybrid propellers, capable of operating above the water line. The mode of operation of the hybrid propellers is to accelerate the water from out of the intake (pick-up) duct and then discharge it through the outlet, requiring only enough backpressure downstream from the propellers to keep the system primed. This contrasts with the traditional jet, which does not accelerate the water until further downstream in the nozzle section, which requires the generation of high pressure.

The Contrapel Hybrid propellers produce lift in a similar way to open water propellers, by using slippage. The use of hybrid propellers enables the mass component for each revolution be maximized and the plume velocity to be minimized. This contrasts with the low mass per impeller revolution and high-plume velocities present in conventional high speed waterjet designs.

According to Contrapel’s own on-water tests, the higher efficiency of the new system provides many improvements compared with boats that are equipped with traditional jet drive installations. These include improved thrust at low and mid speeds; better fuel economy at low and mid speeds due to improved control; the drive is highly survivable and operable in extreme conditions, including brown and black-water environments; it will lower global marine carbon footprint; and produces significantly lower noise and vibration levels.

The rotating speeds of the hybrid propellers are also very low, which generates the lower noise and also little wake turbulence. The Contrapel Hybrid Drive boasts ‘propeller-like’ thrusts at all speeds, but unlike propellers the Contrapel Hybrid Drive propellers are enclosed in a stainless steel tube that is screened to ensure objects cannot be ingested. This means that animal life, people and fragile seascapes are protected from damage.

Currently tested in 190mm, 270mm and 330mm diameter configurations, the Contrapel Hybrid Drive is able to suit a variety of marine propulsion applications and, it is claimed, will work on smaller leisure craft through to military vessels, shipping, workboats, dredgers and even for underwater submarines.

New Zealand’s Stabicraft Marine has been involved in the development of the Contrapel Hybrid Dive and, in conjunction with Contrapel Ltd, has fitted two Contrapel 330 units to a 10.2m Supercab rescue vessel.

Powered by twin Volvo-Penta D6 435 hp engines, the Stabicraft 10.2m weighs eight tonnes and carries 750 litres of fuel. It can achieve a fast cruise of 29.7 knots at 3,030rpm and reach a top speed of 37knots at 3,500rpm.

New Zealand considers Super Seasprite helicopters for navy requirement
By Jon Grevatt
2/1/2013
The New Zealand Ministry of Defence (MoD) is undertaking a final review of SH-2G Super Seasprite helicopters that were previously rejected by the Australian government, in support of a formal bid for the aircraft.

Des Ashton, deputy secretary of Defence (Acquisition) in the MoD, told IHS Jane's that the assessment, a final evaluation of the helicopters' airworthiness, was under way on 31 January before the submission of a proposal to government to procure the helicopters.

"We are looking at that [the purchase of the helicopters] very actively," he said. "We have a gateway review going on right now - today - and basically we are...determining whether we can put a viable proposal through to our government." Ashton added: "We are looking at this [helicopter] as the preferred option for retaining a naval helicopter capability [within the Royal New Zealand Navy]."

The potential purchase could be worth up to about USD200 million and includes 11 helicopters, a flight simulator, training devices, spares, and associated equipment.

New Zealand's interest in the Super Seasprites emerged in early 2012 and was followed by an initial gateway review of the aircraft, assessing any risks associated with the bid, which was undertaken by New Zealand's State Services Commission, which provides oversight of government procurement

The Royal New Zealand Air Force’s (RNZAF) new medium utility helicopter, the NH90, has completed the first phase of its operational testing and evaluation.

"The recent approval of the Interim Type Certificate and initial release of operational capability means that we can now undertake some operational tasking. It’s a significant milestone for the RNZAF," said Air Vice-Marshal Peter Stockwell, Chief of Air Force.

"The NH90 is now cleared to undertake New Zealand-based passenger and cargo tasks that will enable non-tactical support to Government agencies and the other Services."

The NH90 incorporates new technologies and capabilities that represent a substantial improvement over the long serving Iroquois helicopters.

New Zealand Air Force Remembers ASW
Feb. 27, 2013 - 05:54PM
Wellington, New Zealand — New Zealand’s Ministry of Defence has issued a request for information (RfI) for an “Underwater Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (UWISR)” system.

It may seem axiomatic that such an obviously maritime nation as New Zealand would maintain a credible anti-submarine warfare (ASW) capability, yet in recent years the focus of the Royal New Zealand Air Force’s six Orion aircraft has been on overland intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance.

The missions system upgrade that marked the Orions’ transition from P-3K to P-3K2 status (in 2011) was accompanied by renaming the Maritime Patrol Force the Airborne Surveillance and Response Force.

In August 2008, Air Commodore Gavin Howse, then Air Component commander at Headquarters Joint Forces New Zealand, told Defense News, “we will still be able to do maritime surveillance, but the capabilities on board will make [the P-3K2] an excellent overland surveillance aircraft.”

However, it appears the ASW role was neglected, for in December 2011 Air Vice Marshal Peter Stockwell, chief of the Air Force, told Defense News, “We are only maintaining a fairly rudimentary capability in the ASW world at the moment.”

However, he added, “There is certainly discussion around the need to modernize the airborne ASW role.”

Yet, in November 2012, when asked about ASW capability, Lt. Gen. Rhys Jones, chief of the Defence Force, said, “It is impossible for us to counter every threat, every issue, and that’s where we need to balance things up.”

“Submarine proliferation in the area is growing. Is it going to be an issue for us? Yes, it will in the future … but is it a greater priority than overland surveillance or other surveillance that we might need to have in our region?”

The UWISR RfI seeks information, by April 4, on a replacement for the P-3K2 Orion’s existing acoustics system, a magnetic anomaly detection (MAD) system and an improved airdropped stores ejection system.

Ground training equipment, including a postmission acoustic analysis system and a MAD simulator are included in the RfI.

This suggests the Air Force’s ASW capabilities may not remain “rudimentary” as Asia-Pacific submarine fleets expand and modernize.

NZ buys choppers rejected by Australia





The Super Seasprite being tested off the NSW coast, before Australia rejected the aircraft. Source: Supplied

THE New Zealand government has approved spending $200 million on buying eight navy helicopters rejected by Australia for reasons including concerns about safety.
The eight new Super Seasprites will replace the New Zealand navy's existing fleet of five ageing Seasprites, NZ Defence Minister Jonathan Coleman said today. The first three will arrive late next year.
Australia tried for more than 10 years to resolve operations problems with Seasprites, ordered for the navy's Anzac frigates, but cancelled an order for 11 of the helicopters in 2008.
An Australian audit of the $A1.4 billion project found the helicopters had a failure rate assessed at up to 20,000 times greater than air regulations allowed.
The Seasprite's crash worthiness was below contemporary standards, it could not be flown in bad weather, the cockpit was too small for some crewmen and the advanced computerised combat system never worked properly.
The computerised flight control system also tended to make unpredictable movements of flight controls, known as hard-overs.
Dr Coleman said the NZ Defence Force and Ministry of Defence were “acutely aware” of the Australians' problems with the Seasprite.
Australia had wanted its helicopters to be flown by a crew of two, but New Zealand would fly with crews of three and not need the “no-hands” technology.
All other technical issues have been resolved by the manufacturer Kaman, he said.
The Ministry of Defence had also invested “considerable resources” over two years in looking into the Seasprites, including an independent study by Canada's Marinvent Corporation.
The ministry believed the Seasprites would “prove a very capable purchase, meet all of the New Zealand Defence Force's requirements, and can be introduced into service”.
“What's more the price is very good with alternative helicopter replacements costing three times the amount.”
Defence Force pilots had flown the helicopter and were impressed by the step-up, Dr Coleman said.
The entire Seasprite fleet, made from refurbished former US Navy airframes, has a total of 1200 flying hours. They have a service life of another 17 years.

NZ ship to help combat overseas piracy

A navy frigate is again being sent to the Gulf of Aden, near Africa and the Middle East to help combat piracy.

Defence Minister Jonathan Coleman says HMNZS Te Mana will join the international Combined Maritime Force (CMF) in November for a three-month deployment after a work-up period in Australia.

It will deploy with the Australian frigate HMAS Melbourne, before heading to the Gulf of Aden which is between Yemen and Somalia.


From the middle of next year, an air force Orion maritime patrol aircraft will join the CMF for three months.




"Piracy in the Gulf of Aden Indian Ocean region affects all countries with shipping trade going through the Suez Canal," Dr Coleman said.

"New Zealand has a direct interest in supporting the maritime security taskforce and protecting shipping lanes, with a large volume of our trade carried by shipping."

The CMF is a naval partnership of 27 nations.

It operates across 2.5 million square miles of international waters and includes the main shipping routes from the Far East to Europe and the United States.

A New Zealand frigate was part of the operation in 2008, and in 2010 navy captain Jim Gilmour commanded a counter-piracy taskforce.

New Zealand Defence Force to acquire trucks from Rheinmetall
The New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) is acquiring 200 new trucks from Rheinmetall-MAN military vehicles, to replace its ageing Unimog and heavier Mercedes trucks fleet, the country's defence minister Dr Jonathan Coleman has revealed.

Under the $135m project, around $113m will be spent on vehicle purchases, while the remaining $22m has been reserved for armour protection kits, weapons mounts, personnel modules and other specialised military equipment, as well as spares, logistic support arrangements and extensive training packages.

Noting that the purchases have been made from the same production line as the British Army in an effort to save money, Coleman said the vehicles will be capable of transporting more personnel and equipment with enhanced protection in modern military environments.

"These new trucks are part of an ongoing programme of equipment upgrades, including modernisation of the ANZAC frigates, replacement helicopters for the navy, and getting our upgraded Orions and Hercules fully into service," Coleman added.
Specific variants to be acquired include winches and crane-equipped trucks to enable completely independent operations, dump trucks, trucks fitted with specialised pallet and container handling equipment, as well as tractor / semi-trailer combinations for the transport of heavy vehicles and equipment.

To be purchased in 6t 4x4, 9t 6x6 and 15t 8x8 sizes for use across the NZDF, the trucks will feature high capacity electrical systems, air conditioners and Euro 4 emissions compliant engines, which will enable efficient operations even if the fuel is of lower quality, likely to be found during combat.

Despite meeting military requirements, more than 80% of truck components are used by civilian MAN vehicles, which increase the availability of maintenance support to the vehicles.

Around five training vehicles are scheduled to arrive soon for training and qualification of drivers and mechanics, prior to deliveries of the main fleet, which will be complete by the end of 2014

The New Zealand Defence Force's new combat uniforms and weapons are being put to the test in a four-day urban warfare exercise.
Soldiers are trying out the new multi-terrain camouflage uniforms, and using recently purchased light support machine guns, while testing urban combat tactics at Rotorua's Army's combat school. The new weapon gives soldiers a higher level of capability and replaces the old 5.56mm C9 light machine gun.

The army has 600 of the new guns, at around $15,000 per weapon, and a total budget of $16 million.

New technology in fabric, design and camouflage gives soldiers a new level of comfort and protection in the field and will be rolled out to all army personnel.

The new camouflage pattern is for use across a number of environments and is made from a layered system, 70 per cent constructed in New Zealand. The combat school prepares the army's infantry and armoured corps personnel with the leadership skills, tactics, techniques and procedures to command military platoons in combat.

Sources confirm New Zealand in negotiations for Australian Penguin missiles


New Zealand is negotiating with Norwegian company Kongsberg Defence Systems to purchase Penguin Mk 2 Mod 7 anti-ship missiles from Australia, according to sources.

This follows confirmation by an Australian Department of Defence (DoD) spokesperson to IHS Jane's that the Australian-owned missiles are being marketed for sale, with unspecified conditions, by Kongsberg, the weapon's manufacturer.

"The DoD is aware that New Zealand is exploring options to procure some of the Australian stock," the spokesperson added.

A Kongsberg official told IHS Jane's in London on 12 September that the company hoped to sign a contract for Penguin Mk 2 Mod 7 anti-ship missiles for the Royal New Zealand Navy's (RNZN's) new Kaman SH-2G Super Seasprite maritime helicopters by the end of the year, but did not disclose from where the missiles would be sourced.

Lightning takes down air force craft at big cost

Repairs to new defence helicopter may cost more than $10m.

A new twin-engined air force helicopter will need all its rotors repaired or replaced, at a cost of millions of dollars, after being hit by lightning.

Answering questions from the Herald on Sunday this week, the force revealed it didn't know when the NH90 helicopter would return to service or how much it would cost to fix. However, one industry source put the cost of repairs at more than $10 million.

Labour defence spokesman Phil Goff said he would ask questions this week in Parliament about the extent of the damage and how long the craft would be out of commission.

A Defence Force spokeswoman confirmed all four main rotor blades and tail rotor were badly damaged in a severe lightning strike, and several other structural parts needed replacement or repair.

Strategic external relations manager Ally Clelland said the air force was still assessing the damage but the avionics system appeared to be unimpaired.

"The NH90 will be repaired but, because it is still being assessed, it is not yet clear when it will be returned to service," said Clelland.

Defence Minister Jonathan Coleman announced the purchase of the eight new helicopters in March last year to replace an ageing fleet of Iroquois helicopters.

The eight NH90s, with full support and logistics package, cost $771 million with the aircraft representing just under two-thirds of the cost.

The lightning strike happened on August 22, about four nautical miles northeast of the Ohakea air base.

Crew managed to land the helicopter safely at Ohakea and no one was injured.

Goff, who had ordered the upgrade as Minister of Defence, said he was concerned about a lack of transparency surrounding the incident.

Aviation expert Peter Clark said replacing the rotor blades would cost millions: "They are very expensive. I wouldn't put a price on them but I consider this to be a very serious matter on this machine."

Clark said aircraft were designed to withstand lightning strikes so questions needed to be asked of the manufacturer. "It worries me that these are brand-new, multimillion-dollar machines and we're already finding we're grounding them because we've had a lightning strike."

Clark questioned whether the helicopters could be deployed in bad weather, including for rescues.

The Government would pay for repairs as it self-insured the Defence Force fleet.

When the first craft was unveiled this year, Coleman called the NH90s the most advanced and capable helicopters in the history of the air force.

The Minister said the helicopters would undergo a rigorous operational test phase of about 18 months to ensure they were safe and fit for purpose before they were put to use.

RNZAF Antarctic Flight Lands In Challenging Conditions
7 October 2013

A Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF) Boeing 757 has completed its second flight of the season to Antarctica, after weather conditions forced a delayed landing.

The aircraft landed safely at approximately 5.00pm today in challenging weather conditions after a two and a half hour delay.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Hon Murray McCully, was onboard, along with 116 other passengers and 11 RNZAF crew. Passengers included 94 personnel supporting
the US Antarctic Programme, 16 Antarctica New Zealand passengers, and seven NZ Defence Force personnel.

Air Component Commander, Air Commodore (AIRCDRE) Mike Yardley, commended NZ Defence Force personnel.

"Our pilots are well trained to cope with all adverse events, including weather deterioration and emergency landings," AIRCDRE Yardley said.

"Thanks to the skills of the pilots and the robust procedures in place, the aircraft landed safely having had to descend below the normal instrument approach height.

"Antarctic weather is highly changeable and subtle shifts in wind speed or direction can have significant effects on the conditions at the destination airfield. The actual and forecast weather conditions are carefully monitored by the crew during the flight. In this case the weather changed late in the flight at a point where the remaining fuel no longer allowed a safe return to NZ."

MBDA’s Sea Ceptor Air Defence System Selected for Royal New Zealand Navy’s ANZAC Frigate Upgrade


MBDA Sea Ceptor Missile in flight


Following a meeting in Wellington on 4th October 2013, Mr Des Ashton, the NZ MoD Deputy Secretary of Defence (Acquisition), said: “The primary objective of the ANZAC Frigate Systems Upgrade project is to restore the ship’s combat capability and utility to a comparative level to that of a current generation, new release Combat System. This is required to counter the combined challenges of an increased level of threat sophistication coupled with obsolescence of some of the current systems. We also want to leverage off advances in technology over the past 20 years and incorporate additional functionality and performance through the selection of modern Combat System Elements. The LAAD Sea Ceptor system is a key component of the overall project ensuring that crucial constituents of the RNZN fleet are best equipped to respond to the emerging threats and protect not only the frigates themselves but also high value units in company.”

Commenting on the New Zealand selection of Sea Ceptor, Dr Andrew Murrison MP, UK Minister for International Security Strategy, said: "The UK Government is pleased that the New Zealand Ministry of Defence is pursuing the procurement of Sea Ceptor, the same system that the Royal Navy has procured for their Type 23s and plans to cross deck onto the Type 26 Global Combat Ship. The UK is immensely proud of this product - it is a real example of UK innovation and will form the bedrock of air defence for the Royal Navy for decades to come. This decision by New Zealand further demonstrates the strengthening of our maritime security cooperation."

HMNZS Te Mana (F111) is one of ten Anzac class frigates and one of two serving in the Royal New Zealand Navy.


[font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Steve Wadey, Managing Director MBDA UK, said: “I am delighted that New Zealand has selected Sea Ceptor. The NZ Government’s procurement of Sea Ceptor for the ANZAC FSU project will be the first export success for this highly capable weapon system and proof that MBDA is able to meet such challenging requirements. This success has been supported by the UK Government during discussions with the New Zealand Ministry of Defence, a cooperation that will continue through the life of the project.”

The appeal of Sea Ceptor is creating significant interest in a number of markets around the world and its versatility makes it the ideal choice for the ANZAC upgrade. As an active radar system, Sea Ceptor does not require the dedicated tracker/illuminator radars on which semi-active systems depend. Sea Ceptor deploys the CAMM (Common Anti-Air Modular Missile) which, due to its soft launch technology, requires no efflux management system. This minimizes the system’s mass and footprint thereby allowing for greater flexibility regarding ship installation positions. CAMM missile canisters are compatible with a wide range of vertical launch systems.

On the 9th September 2013, the United Kingdom’s (UK) Royal Navy contracted with MBDA for the manufacture of the Sea Ceptor system for its frigate fleet. The UK will replace the Seawolf missile system in their Type 23 frigates with Sea Ceptor before migrating it to their new build Type 26 frigates.

New Zealand Issues RFI for Littoral Support Ship



WELLINGTON, NEW ZEALAND — The New Zealand Defence Force wants to replace its mine countermeasures and diving support vessel, HMNZS Manawanui, and its hydrographic survey vessel, HMNZS Resolution, “as both approach their end of life,” says an Oct. 23 request for information.
The 2,282-ton Resolution, originally commissioned to the US Navy in 1989, was decommissioned from service with the Royal New Zealand Navy in April 2012.
Displacing 911 tons, Manawanui, originally commissioned as an oil rig tender in 1979, remains in Navy service. Rather than acquire two new vessels, the Navy wants “to consolidate the individual capabilities within a single Littoral Operations Support Capability (LOSC). The replacement capability will maintain the capability sets delivered by both HMNZS Manawanui & Resolution.”
The new ship has a target contract delivery date of mid-2017 and acceptance into naval service by mid-2018.
Described as a littoral operations support capability, the new vessel is envisioned as being able to remain at sea for 200 days a year with 165 days alongside and be capable of a speed of up to 18 knots.
