New BVS10 Beowulf all-terrain vehicle debuted at DSEI 2015


By Dylan Vosman - Sep 15, 2015




The new vehicle, called “Beowulf,” is based on the Company’s revered Viking BvS10 fighting, troop-carrying and logistics vehicle that was initially designed in Sweden for the UK Royal Marines. Beowulf has a payload capacity of eight tonnes and built-in flexibility with special role cabins in the rear car to carry a combination of personnel and cargo. The vehicle can traverse through water, swamps, snow and soft sand; and climb 45-degree slopes. Beowulf features increased crew comfort and visibility, and is easy to maintain and support, resulting in reduced operational costs.

“We know from more than 40 years of all-terrain vehicle experience that there is a need for an unarmoured vehicle that can reach places other systems cannot, carry a high payload and do it around the clock regardless of weather conditions,” said Tore Akser, platform manager at BAE Systems Hägglunds, a subsidiary of BAE Systems, Inc. in the United States.

BAE Systems sees Beowulf as a successor to its Bv206. More than 12,000 of the glass-fibre bodied vehicles were built and the majority are still in service with military and emergency services in more than 40 countries around the world. Beowulf is well placed to meet a recently declared requirement from the UK Royal Marines for approximately 230 vehicles, in a range of variants to replace the Marines’ 350 Bv206s.

Though aimed primarily at the military market, Beowulf is also expected to attract interest for carrying out civilian missions in areas difficult to access.

SCHIEBEL Introduces The COMID Compact Mine Detector


By Dylan Vosman - Sep 15, 2015




Vienna / London, 15 September 2015 – Schiebel, renowned for the development
and production of a wide range of proven mine detection equipment, presents its
new generation hand-held COMID™ Compact Mine Detector at the DSEI (Defence
and Security Equipment International) in London.

As always for Schiebel, the interest of its many existing humanitarian demining and
military customers was considered a vital element in the research process of the
COMID™. Many years of experience and development have produced a mine detector
that incorporates advanced technology whilst retaining all of the proven and trusted
capabilities of Schiebel’s mine detection product range with the most operational benefits
possible. With the COMID™ Compact Mine Detector, simplicity meets precision.
Schiebel’s latest mine detector is characterized by easy handling in static search, quick
calibration and improved visual and acoustic support functions, helping the user to
implement the required actions quickly and safely. The COMID™ is able to consistently
locate both large and small targets with precision and ease.

Simplified pin-pointing is made possible with different audio and visual signals for the left
and right halves of the search head, aiming at maximum support with minimal training
effort. Furthermore, the tone modulation varies depending on the size and geometry of as
well as the distance to the detected object. Always in the visual field, an LED display,
integrated in the search head, minimizes the risk of distraction.

Enhanced ground and saltwater compensation eliminates the difficulties of the terrain,
helping the deminer to focus on his essential work in all types of military and
humanitarian operations. The most recent ground calibration is retained for a steady
workflow. The COMID™ design is totally compatible with its ATMID™ and AN/19-2 (U.S.
Army designation AN/PSS-12) predecessors. Search head and electronics card / unit can
easily be replaced for cost-efficient upgrade of older systems. The addition of an infrared
data port allows the quick update with new software versions.

Hans Georg Schiebel, owner and chairman of Schiebel comments, “With the introduction
of the COMID™, we are continuing to expand our expertise in mine detection technology
and our reputation for product effectiveness, service and quality keeps growing.
Wherever mines or unexploded ordnance impact, our detectors will be there to provide
our customers safe conduct.”

Turreted Ajax Unveiled at DSEI


Sep 15, 2015


London, U.K. – General Dynamics UK has today unveiled the turreted AJAX prototype platform (formerly known as SCOUT SV) at DSEI 2015.

 

The company displayed the troop carrier variant of the family last year. The flagship variant of the AJAX programme, the turreted variant is the second prototype to be unveiled by General Dynamics UK, and the first to feature the Lockheed Martin UK-developed turret, which is designed to meet the needs of the modern British soldier.

The first British Army squadron will be equipped by mid-2019 to allow conversion to begin with a brigade ready to deploy from the end of 2020.

The AJAX platform is one of six variants to be delivered to the British Army by General Dynamics UK from 2017 through 2024. It represents the future of Armoured Fighting Vehicles (AFV) for the British Army, providing best-in-class protection and survivability, reliability and mobility and advanced ISTAR capabilities.

The AJAX platform will be the ‘eyes and ears’ of the British Army on the battlefields of the future. It will be effective in the most difficult terrains around the world, providing all-weather intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition and reconnaissance (ISTAR) capabilities.

Commenting on the unveiling of the AJAX platform, MoD Armoured Vehicles Head of Programmes, Major General Talbot-Rice, said: “We are committed to supplying the Armed Forces with the very best equipment possible and are delivering on this by supplying the AJAX platform which will become their first fully digitised armoured fighting vehicle.”

The range of AJAX variants will allow the British Army to conduct sustained, expeditionary, full-spectrum and network-enabled operations with a reduced logistics footprint. It can operate in combined-arms and multinational situations across a wide-range of future operating environments.

AJAX has been designed and developed at General Dynamics UK’s AFV design and engineering centre in Oakdale, South Wales.

  DSEI 2015: AgustaWestland completes unmanned SW-4 trials for Royal Navy

Nicholas de Larrinaga, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly

15 September 2015

AgustaWestland has completed capability concept demonstration (CCD) trials of an unmanned PZL-Swidnik SW-4 helicopter for the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD), the company announced on 15 September.

The CCD programme was begun in 2013 under a GBP2.3 million (USD3.5 billion) contact awarded by the MoD to AgustaWestland to conduct research into Rotary Wing Unmanned Air Systems (RWUAS). The programme was designed to provide research for the Royal Navy to guide its potential Tactical Maritime Unmanned Air System (TMUAS) requirement.

In total the RWUAS CCD programme saw 27 hours of flight trials and 22 automated simulated deck landings at Llanbedr Airfield in Wales with the unmanned/optionally piloted SW-4 'Solo' helicopter, spread across three phases.

The first phase included operability demonstrations including launch and recovery, integration with the DNA(2) Ship Combat Management System, mission management, and operations under degraded conditions. The simulated deck landings - onto a towed trailer, replicating a frigate deck - were held in the second phase, while the final phase tested the system's performance in maritime security/reconnaissance missions. During the trials the aircraft was flown under automatic control by a ground station, although a safety pilot was present aboard the helicopter.

Commander Bow Wheaton, head of Maritime Capability (Aviation) for the Royal Navy in the UK MoD, said the service was "very pleased with the outcome of the Rotary Wing UAS demonstration project and [we] have learnt a lot that will inform future options". He added that "Rotary Wing UAS offer a niche combination of endurance and payload, whiet being able to launch and recover from relatively small warships with a flight deck."

landings, pictured) of the UK Ministry of Defence's Capability Concept Demonstration (CCD) programme. (AgustaWestland)


AgustaWestland noted that the RWUAS CCD also included a capability study to look at a range of differently sized RWUAS "that could deliver persistent maritime capability". Although the trials looked principally at the basic mechanics of landing, operating an RWUAS, and performing surveillance missions, other tasks were also investigated. These included an RWUAS providing mine hunting, hydrographic survey, and airborne surveillance capability - all while operating from a frigate.

The RWUAS CCD project also involved AgustaWestland's Finmeccanica stablemate Selex ES (providing surveillance systems), BAE Systems (surface ship combat management systems), Altas Elektronik UK (mine hunting), and Pelydryn (hydrographic surveying systems). PZL-Swidnik is a Polish subsidiary of AgustaWestland.

DSEI 2015: Thales unveils next-generation Lightweight Multiple Launcher

Robin Hughes, London - IHS Jane's Missiles & Rockets

15 September 2015


Thales' new Lightweight Multiple Launcher - Next Generation (LML-NG). Source: Thales



Thales Belfast has developed a next-generation variant of its Lightweight Multiple Launcher (LML) to leverage both Starstreak and Lightweight Multirole Missile (LMM) effectors for day/night-enabled multimission engagement capability.

Unveiled at the DSEI exhibition in London on 14 September 2015, the new Lightweight Multiple Launcher - Next Generation (LML-NG) replaces the legacy LML Direct Optic View capability with new head and sensor assemblies, and delivers a ready-to-fire surface-to-air and surface-to-surface capability in one launch package.

The new head assembly supports two laser beam-riding missiles - either the kinetic triple tungsten dart warhead-equipped Starstreak High Velocity Missile or the dual-effect blast fragmentation/shaped-charge LMM, or a combination of both; the legacy LML launcher provided for a three munition (Starstreak) head assembly. The re-useable sensor assembly comprises daylight TV and Thermal Imaging cameras, a stabilised guidance unit - housing the laser transmitter unit, optical bench, and inertial measurement unit - for acquiring and tracking the target, and an integrated command-and-control (C2) interface. The LML-NG system can be also equipped with an Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) antenna, while capability growth options include integration of an Automated Target Tracking capability and C2 display for both operator and system commander. The LML-NG also provides a 24-hour surveillance asset to the deployed operator.

LML-NG can be tripod-mounted for manportable deployments, including lightweight rapid reaction and air-droppable operations, or vehicle-mounted on light-utility platforms for mobile engagements. In a manportable role the LML-NG comprises three separate parts - tripod, head assembly, and sensor assembly - that Thales said can be assembled and ready to fire "in a few minutes".

Using the Starstreak missile, LML-NG can engage a variety of aerial threats including head-on or fast-crossing aerial targets to targets such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and helicopters, while the LMM provides a complimentary capability to engage surface-to-surface targets out to 6 km, including light armoured vehicles and fixed installations.

IHS Jane's understands that the LML-NG, which is scheduled to complete qualification trials in early 2016, will be part of the GBP100 million (USD152 million) package agreed with Malaysia in July 2015 and formally ratified at DSEI. This package includes the Starstreak/Rapid Ranger system and the LML-NG is integrated on a Global Komited Toyota-based 4x4 GKM1 light utility vehicle.

IHS Jane's understands that Thales also signed a GBP10,000 contract with Thailand in late July for the supply of an undisclosed number of Starstreak systems, although this does not include the LML-NG launcher.

DSEI 2015: Selex ES unveils Falcon Shield counter-UAV system

Nicholas de Larrinaga, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly

15 September 2015

Selex ES unveiled its Falcon Shield counter-unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) system at DSEI 2015 in London on 15 September.

The Falcon Shield system is designed to detect and defeat micro- and mini-UAVs, and uses a scalable and modular architecture to provide protection to any size of location - from small-scale VIP, patrol, or convoy protection (at a manportable or vehicle-portable level) to large-scale critical infrastructure or military bases.

The new product has been an entirely company-funded effort over the past three years and has been announced when fully mature and available for purchase.

Within a Selex ES command-and-control (C2) software/management system a range of sensor and effector modules can be installed to provide any scale of counter-UAV protection that a customer needs. Whichever subsystems are used, the Falcon Shield operates on a five stage principal. The first stage, 'Find', provides area coverage of a protected location to monitor potential threats: this typically involves a radar combined with electronic frequency monitoring. This find stage can locate both potential airborne threats and the ground stations that they are controlled from.

Guided by this information, the radar electronic monitoring combines with an electro-optical infrared (EO/IR) camera to 'fix' the target. When fixed, the EO/IR camera and radar 'track' the target (the third stage), before the EO/IR system 'identifies' the threat. This four-stage principal is designed to produce a low false alarm rate before the final 'defeat' stage begins.

The 'defeat' stage is "where Selex ES is a class leader, and where we have a differentiator over our rivals", Selex ES's Steve Williams said at DSEI. This involves "more than just jamming, and provides complex and customer-required capabilities". While elusive on how precisely the defeat mechanism functions, Selex ES videos show the system taking control of a hostile micro-UAV (presumably through a radio frequency electronic attack system) and forcing it into a controlled descent in a safe location. "This design approach is intended to minimise collateral effects", Williams said.

This implies that the Falcon Shield does not use high-power microwave energy to destroy a UAV's electronic components - although this capability could be included if a customer required, Williams noted. In addition, Selex ES state that "this electronic attack capability can be complemented by the integration of additional, optional kinetic effectors".

Possible sensors for the Falcon Shield system include the Nerio family of advanced, long-range EO/IR turrets; the Observer 100 combined radar and EO/IR elevated situational awareness system; the Vantage Framework C2 system and human machine interface; and the Horizon HD thermal imaging camera. The actual electronic attack effector system itself was not named by Selex ES.

DSEI 2015: Nexter Systems pins export hopes on VBCI-2

Christopher F Foss, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly

15 September 2015

40 mm CTAS and a roof-mounted 7.62 mm RWS. Source: Christopher F Foss



Nexter Systems unveiled the VBCI-2 infantry fighting vehicle (IFV) at DSEI 2015 in London, which has been developed with company funds to meet potential export customers' requirements for a vehicle with a higher level of armour protection and firepower.

In IFV configuration, the VBCI-2 has an all-new welded hull with a higher roof line than the standard French Army VBCI to allow for greater internal volume. Other new features include a more powerful diesel engine, an upgraded suspension, larger tyres for enhanced cross-country mobility, the option of steering on the last road wheel station, an electronic architecture, and a driver thermal viewer.

The latest VBCI-2, which was completed at Nexter Systems Roanne facility shortly before DSEI, is fitted with the latest Nexter Systems T40 two-person turret armed with a CTAI 40 mm Cased Telescoped Army System (CTAS) weapon and a roof-mounted 7.62 mm co-axial MG. This compares with the standard VBCI IFV's one-person Nexter Systems turret armed with a 25 mm M811 dual-feed cannon and a 7.62 mm machine gun (MG).

Mounted on either side of the VBCI-2's turret is an anti-tank guided weapon (ATGW) whose type is normally selected by the end user.

The 40 mm CTAS is already in production as the 40 mm Case Telescoped Cannon System (CTCS) for the British Army's Warrior Capability Sustainment Programme (WCSP) and the recce version of the General Dynamics UK Scout Specialist Vehicle. The 40 mm weapon has also been selected for the French Army's new Jaguar 6x6 reconnaissance vehicle, making the weapon the largest medium-calibre weapon programme in Europe.

As with an increasing number of vehicles, the VBCI-2 is fitted with cameras to provide situational awareness through a full, 360-degree vision with images displayable on the commanders', gunners', and drivers' stations, plus an additional display for the dismounts in the rear troop compartment.

The Nexter Systems T40 turret is just one of a number of weapon systems that could be fitted onto the VBCI-2, alternatives being a remote weapon station armed with a 30 mm MK44 cannon that would free up space for additional dismounts inside the troop compartment.

The gross vehicle weight (GVW) depends on the modular armour package and the actual weapon system installed on the VBCI-2, but is typically around 32 tonnes.

The worlds first Hybrid Unmanned Ground Vehicle Made in Estonia


By Dylan Vosman - Sep 16, 2015




A unique, multipurpose UGV (unmanned ground vehicle) will be the first vehicle of its kind to use ultracapacitor technology. The high power cells from record-breaking manufacturer Skeleton Technologies will be used to deliver greatly increased energy efficiency and product reliability.

The hybrid UGV has been developed by Estonian defence solutions provider Milrem, a company specialising in military engineering, repair and maintenance. Unlike existing UGVs it provides a universal platform for any application from communication relay to medevac, lifting platform to fire-fighting. This plug-and-play capability is made possible by housing all equipment inside the vehicle’s tracks.

The multipurpose UGV can be used for a wide range of defence requirements including reconnaissance and observer missions, targeting weapon systems and providing support solutions such as medical supplies. The universal platform allows operators to optimise their vehicle fleet and reduce life cycle management costs with simplified maintenance and spare supplies.

With energy consumption becoming an increasing concern in the defence sector, the Milrem UGV was designed to be as efficient as possible. A highly sophisticated control unit regulates energy flow between the diesel generator, electric motors and Skeleton Technologies’ ultracapacitors. This system reduces overall energy consumption by 25–40%. The ultracapacitors also ensure reliability by starting the vehicle in cold conditions or after prolonged periods in storage.

Kuldar Väärsi, Chairman of the Board at Milrem, explains why they chose to work with Skeleton Technologies: “Firstly we chose these ultracapacitors for their performance; we knew they would deliver the efficiency and reliability we required. But we also liked the company’s approach to working alongside their customers to develop new products and new ideas.”

Ultracapacitors are a highly efficient form of energy storage that are able to provide very high currents of power. Skeleton Technologies’ cells can also charge and discharge millions of times, offering lifetimes up to 500 times longer than batteries. Crucially for applications in colder climates, the technology can operate in temperatures as low as -65 °C.

“We are proud to have worked with Milrem for our first deployment in the defence sector,” explains Skeleton Technologies Chief Executive Officer, Taavi Madiberk. “From powering space shuttles with the European Space Agency to ensuring cold weather start in trucks, the range of applications for our high-power technology is increasing all the time.”

The first prototype of the Milrem multipurpose UGV will be unveiled in London at Europe’s leading defence and security event, DSEI 2015 which runs from 15 to 18 September. Milrem can be found at stand N3-362.

Nexter unveiled new Caesar 8×8 self-propelled artillery system


By Dylan Vosman - Sep 16, 2015


Defence24.pl


 
Nexter unveiled new   Caesar 8×8  self-propelled (SP) artillery system at DSEI-2015.

The new Caesar 8×8  is based on the Tatra T815 cross-country chassis with the power-operated 155mm/52 calibre ordnance mounted at the rear of the chassis, which is the same as that fitted to the current production Caesar system. The Tatra is just one of the 8×8 chassis available; the others being from Renault Trucks Defense, Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles and Sisu.

The 8×8 Caesar being shown is fitted with a standard unarmoured forward control four-person cab, but one of the options is a fully armour protected cab. Gross vehicle weight would depend on the level of armour protection, but is about 30 tonnes. It is powered by a 410hp diesel engine.

The standard production 6×6 Caesar carries a total of 18 155mm projectiles and modular charge systems (MCS) but the latest 8×8 can carry 30 155mm projectiles and MCS. The 155mm ordnance has powered elevation and traverse and a large hydraulically operated spade is lowered at the rear to provide a more stable firing platform.

Caesar is equipped with an onboard computerised fire control system and a global positioning system/inertial navigation system.

It was developed by Nexter as a private venture but has already been adopted by the French Army, which has taken delivery of five pre-production vehicles plus 72 production systems; these have seen combat use in Afghanistan, Lebanon and, more recently, Mali.

The French Army Caesar systems are based on a Renault Trucks Defense 6×6 chassis, as are those deployed by Thailand (6) and being supplied to Indonesia (37). The 136 Caesars supplied to Saudi Arabia are on a Mercedes-Benz Unimog (6×6) chassis, although this has never been confirmed by Nexter Systems.

DSEI 2015: Finmeccanica pitches multimission C/MC-27J to the UK

Gareth Jennings, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly

16 September 2015

 
Finmeccanica's pitch to the UK was rather unsubtly shown with this Union Jack flag-bedecked C/MC-27J model on display at DSEI 2015.
Source: IHS/Gareth Jennings



Italian company Finmeccanica is pitching its C-27J Spartan and MC-27J Praetorian aircraft to the UK government as a British solution to a British set of requirements.

Speaking at the DSEI 2015 exhibition in London on 16 September, senior vice president of UK Corporate, Sir Brian Burridge, said that the twin-turboprop tactical airlifter and its special mission stablemate are largely built by UK industry and would offer the country the range of capability sets that it is either currently lacking or will shortly lose due to fleet retirements and other factors.

"The [C/MC-27J] is about solving problems that air forces around the world are facing today, particularly the UK. The UK problem is that its ISR [intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance] platforms are very capable, but fragmented [into many different types] - there is the Sentinel, Rivet Joint, Shadow, and E-3D. [Further to this], it has a tactical intra-theatre transport aircraft with two refurbished BAe 146s, [and the] C-130Js that are to be retired [in 2022].

"The UK has packages of niche aircraft, which is not an efficient way to run a fleet. The [C/MC-27J] offers a flexible, affordable, and lethal solution ... with a UK industrial content of 37% [by value of the aircraft]," he said.

In terms of the roles that Finmeccanica envisions for the C/MC-27J in UK service, Burridge highlighted tactical transport and special forces, command and control (C2) and ISR, and maritime patrol.

Currently, the UK Royal Air Force (RAF) transport fleet covers the spectrum of strategic through to tactical, with the Boeing C-17 Globemaster III, the Airbus Defence and Space (DS) A400M Atlas, the Lockheed Martin C-130J Hercules, the BAe 146, and the Boeing Chinook. However, with the C-130J to be retired in 2022 and the BAe 146 not intended as a long-term solution, Burridge noted a future capability gap between the semi-strategic A400M and the Chinook helicopter.

Slovakia has become the first customer for the latest generation of the Carl Gustaf 84 mm shoulder-fired recoilless rifle, Saab announced on 16 September.

Deliveries of the Carl Gustaf M4 to the Slovak Armed Forces will take place in 2016, said the company.

The M4 version was unveiled in September 2014 and uses new materials (titanium and carbon fibre) to reduce its length to less than 1,000 mm and its weight to 6.7kg (without a sight): 3kg lighter than the M3 and half the weight of the 14.2kg M2 version.

In addition, the M4 has been designed for use with intelligent sights to improve accuracy and to allow it to fire electronically programmable ammunition. It also features ergonomic improvements, and incorporates a manual safety and a round counter for the first time.

DSEI 2015: UK A400M and Merlin aircraft mark service milestones

Nicholas de Larrinaga, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly

16 September 2015

schedule. Source: Airbus



The United Kingdom marked two aircraft capability milestones on 15 September for the Royal Navy's AgustaWestland Merlin HM.2 maritime helicopters and the Royal Air Force's Airbus A400M Atlas strategic transport aircraft.

Announced by Minister of State for Defence Procurement Philip Dunne, the milestones see the Merlin HM.2 fleet reach full operating capability (FOC), and the A400M fleet meet its in-service date (ISD).

Under the GBP800 million (USD1.4 billion) Merlin Capability Sustainment Programme (MCSP), Lockheed Martin UK and AgustaWestland are upgrading 30 of the Royal Navy's Merlin HM.1s to the new HM.2 standard. The FOC declaration was made after 21 of the helicopters had completed the upgrade, "on time and under budget" according to Dunne. In fact, 24 aircraft have now completed the upgrade and are in service.

Meanwhile, with the seventh A400M was delivered to the UK on 15 September at RAF Brize Norton air base - marking the ISD declaration point. Of these seven aircraft, four are currently in service with the RAF, with three being fitted with UK-specific defensive aid systems. Dunne noted he was pleased that "the UK's GBP2.7 million programme for 22 aircraft has achieved its in service date, despite some challenges" - most notably the loss of an aircraft earlier this year in Spain.


Meanwhile, the Royal Navy's Merlin HM.2 fleet has passed its full operational capability (FOC) milestone ahead of schedule.

The declaration of FOC for the Merlin HM.2 follows its ISD declaration in May 2014 and then initial operational capability (IOC) in June 2014. The HM.2 standard introduces an open architecture mission system, a new cockpit avionics suite, improved radar and acoustic processing capabilities, and an increase in mission system processing capability. Work on upgrading the Mk3 Merlins is continuing, Dunne said.

In a statement, Air Marshal Simon Bollom, MoD Chief of Materiel (Air), said that "the achievement of the A400M In Service Date is a key milestone for the Royal Air Force".

DSEI 2015: Beretta unveils ARX-200 battle rifle

Paolo Valpolini, London and Nicholas de Larrinaga, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly

17 September 2015

ARX-160 5.56 mm assault rifle, although its internals differ. Source: Paulo Valpolini



Beretta Defense Technologies showed off its awaited ARX-200 7.62x51 mm combat rifle at DSEI 2015 in London.

Developed to the requirements of the Italian Army, the ARX 200 is currently being qualified according to NATO AC 225/LCG1 rules.

The new rifle draws on the experience acquired with the ARX-160A3 5.56x45 mm rifle, adopted by the Italian Army and numerous other export customers.

Although not based on the ARX-160, the ARX-200 maintains a family look and feel with the earlier rifle, with many features such as the magazine release, the hold-open, and others remaining the same to facilitate training in services using both rifles.

A gas-piston operated weapon with locked breech and rotating bolt, the ARX-200 has no double-side expulsion, brass being always ejected on the left. However the cocking handle can be switched left or right dismounting the rifle, and the three-position fire selector (safe-single shot-automatic) is available on both sides.

The ARX-200 does not feature an immediate change barrel system, a quick change system having been adopted in the form of a single bolt under the handguard, fixing the heavy 16-inch free-floating cold hammer forged barrel to the bolt assembly.

Beretta took care to minimise weight, the upper rail and the forehand being made of a single aluminium piece, which is coupled with a reinforced techno-polymer insert hosting the bolt. The rifle uses the KeyMod system on the forehand in order to install side rails when needed. The ARX-200 has a weight of 4.5 kg, without magazine.

In terms of accuracy the new 7.62x51 mm rifle exceeded company expectations, obtaining a 1.5 MOA accuracy at 100 m using match-grade ammunition, a performance in line with designated marksman rifles. In fact Beretta will soon start developing a DMR [designated marksman rifle] version, modularity allowing the replacement of the fire selector and trigger assemblies; the former will be replaced by a two-position (safe and single shot) selector while the current single-stage trigger, whose pull should be around 3 kg, will be replaced by a dual-stage trigger with a pull of around 2 kg.

DSEI 2015: Airbus DS reveals new system for detecting and defeating UAVs

Gareth Jennings, London - IHS Jane's International Defence Review

17 September 2015

Airbus Defence and Space (DS) revealed during the DSEI 2015 exhibition in London a new system for detecting and neutralising unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

The system, which was publicised on 16 September, uses sensor data from different sources, which it combines with the latest data fusion, signal analysis and jamming technologies to detect and defeat illicit UAVs at ranges of between 5 and 10 km.

It uses operational radars, infrared (IR) cameras and direction finders from Airbus DS's portfolio to identify the UAV and assess its threat potential. Specifically, the sensors used are the Airbus DS (formerly Cassidian Electronics and EADS Defence Electronics) SPEXER 500 active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar and the Airbus DS (formerly Carl Zeiss Optronics) Z:NightOwl IR camera.

The SPEXER 500 is designed for use in camp protection, perimeter security, and the protection of critical national infrastructure. It was developed for tracking and detecting ground and low-flying targets in areas with a limited line of sight, for example due to hills. The Z:NightOwl IR camera long-range system is intended for the surveillance of borders, coastlines, and critical infrastructure sites.

A company representative told IHS Jane's that, depending on scenarios and customer requirements, these detection systems are combined with the MRD7 direction finder and with the Airbus DS VPJ-R6 multirole jammer.

As noted by the representative, the VPJ-R6 uses the ultra-fast Scalable Multi-purpose Aerospace Radar Technology (SMART) responsive jamming to provide higher protection levels than conventional systems.

"Thanks to new digital-receiver and signal-processing technologies, the system achieves reaction times of well below a millisecond," he said. "The jamming power is focused on the detonation signal's specific frequency instead of being distributed over the whole frequency range, as is the case in conventional systems. The combination of the jamming functionality with [electronic support measures] ESM in a mobile device allows more detailed information on potential threats to be obtained, which in turn significantly improves target effectiveness." The jamming signals block only the relevant frequencies used to operate the UAV, while other frequencies in the vicinity remain operational.

DSEI 2015: Watchkeeper X - Export Variant for France and Poland

PUBLISHED AT: Today, 17 September, 10:26

kontakt@defence24.pl


During the London DSEI 2015 event, Thales UK company announced, in cooperation with the Polish WB Electronics and the French Vitec companies, that the “Watchkeeper X” programme has begun. The aim of the initiative is to create – in order to meet the requirements pursued by the foreign buyers – solutions that would be tailored to the local needs, within the scope of the technological solutions, as well as within the scope of the technology transfer and access to the source codes.



Watchkeeper X is a programme which is going to be developed independently from the British WH450 Watchkeeper system, and – thanks to its modular structure – it is going to be possible to tailor the newly created platform to the needs of the prospective buyers. France and Poland are going to become the initial two states that are going to benefit from the above solution. In both cases, the armed forces are interested in acquisition of the Watchkeeper UAV system coming in configurations that would be customized in line with precise requirements which – within many areas – are very different from the needs of the British Army. For example, Poland is seeking to acquire a tactical UCAV system, thus the UAV offered for Poland is the only variant of the Watchkeeper system which is armed with the FLMM ordnance.

Thales UK decided to cooperate with the selected local companies, in case of which scope of qualifications is compliant with the local needs. In case of Poland it was decided that cooperation should involve the WB Electronics company which is striving to implement the Polish communication and control system and cooperate, within the scope of other unmanned platforms. Thanks to the memorandum signed in August this year, between Thales UK and WB Electronics, it is going to be possible to integrate the defence, guidance and observation systems of the Polish FlyEye and Manta systems, together with the infrastructure used to control the British-made Watchkeeper UAV. This means that there is a possibility of controlling all of the above UAV’s with the use of a single control station, developed for the Watchkeeper. In France, Thales UK cooperates with the Vitec company, specialized in visual and communications systems.

Thales UK is planning to open a “Watchkeeper X Club”, an organized user network that could make use of the solutions developed for the said UAV platform, in order to fulfil the needs of the other “club” members. It would also be possible to modify the British UAV systems, similarly as in case of the British Army Watchkeeper UAV which – at the moment – constitutes the base for further development of the platform.

At the moment, Thales UK effort related to the Watchkeeper X programme is focused on Poland and France, however negotiations with other potential buyers are also being carried out. This type of unmanned vehicles is an object of interest for the South-East Asia or Middle East states, as well as numerous European states, all of which are seeking to acquire UAV systems that are more cost-effective and induce less strain on ATC airspace management, in comparison with the MALE class systems.

DSEI 2015: Prince of Wales build currently running ahead of schedule, says Aircraft Carrier Alliance

Dr. Lee Willett, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly

18 September 2015

Key Points

•Build of second UK aircraft carrier currently is ahead of schedule
•Lessons learned from first-in-class build have seen three or four months pulled out of assembly sequence

The build of the UK's second Queen Elizabeth-class aircraft carrier, the future HMS Prince of Wales , currently is running ahead of schedule, the head of the UK's Aircraft Carrier Alliance (ACA) told a media briefing at the DSEI defence and security exhibition in London on 16 September.

Ian Booth, the ACA's managing director, said that the ship's build programme is "actually running ahead of schedule at the moment ... [by] quite a few months", due particularly to the ACA having "learned an awful lot of lessons from the build of Queen Elizabeth "; as a result, he said, "we have compressed the programme."

He said that a number of key lessons were learned from the build of the first-in-class carrier. In terms of the build schedule, the biggest lesson was the sequence of building the blocks. For Queen Elizabeth , lower blocks 01 and 02 for the ship's bow section were docked down separately in the build dock at the Rosyth shipyard before being welded together. For Prince of Wales , the two blocks were joined together before being docked down; this, said Booth, saved about two months.

The second lesson was completing individual blocks with a more advanced state of internal outfitting than on Queen Elizabeth , prior to welding blocks together.

The third was to put a "massive effort" into improving productivity, said Booth.

In addition, every block for Prince of Wales has been delivered on or ahead of schedule. Overall, he continued, the ACA "have been able to pull three or four months out of the assembly sequence" for the ship.

Booth set out the programme schedule for the carrier going forward.

DSEI 2015: Raytheon pitches Sentinel R.1 service extention to 2015

Tim Ripley, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly

18 September 2015


Raytheon UK's Sentinel R.1 Airborne Stand-Off Radar (ASTOR) aircraft could be kept in service for another decade to help the UK Royal Air Force (RAF) meet its airborne ISTAR requirements, according to company executives.

The long-term fate of the Sentinel is under consideration as part of the UK's Strategic Defence and Security Review (SDSR) and there is no commitment from the country's Ministry of Defence to keep the aircraft in service beyond 2018. The SDSR is due conclude by the end of this year.

Richard Howell, head of Raytheon's airborne systems business in the United Kingdom, pitched for an extension of the aircraft up to 2025, citing the unavailability of a replacement.

DSEI 2015: Thales launches new submarine sonar training service

Kate Tringham, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly

18 September 2015



Thales has developed an innovative solution for submarine sonar training that can host multiple software systems and simulate any submarine platform.

Launched at the DSEI 2015 exhibition in London, the Rapidly Reconfigurable Training Technology package enables sonar operators to train on the exact sonar system they will be using once deployed. In addition, all variants of individual systems can be supported, which means operators can train on the individual sensor fit of submarines at various upgrade stages.

"The utopian training environment is that you train someone to do something before they go on to do it, but in the navy that has historically been something that is really difficult to achieve.

DSEI 2015: UK places GBP300 million ASRAAM order


Nicholas de Larrinaga, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly

18 September 2015

The United Kingdom has placed a GBP300 million (USD462 million) contract with MBDA to build new Advanced Short Range Air-to-Air Missiles (ASRAAMs) for the Royal Air Force (RAF), it was announced on 16 September at DSEI 2015 in London.

The 'capability sustainment' order will replenish the RAF's entire stock of ASRAAM with new-build missiles. ASRAAM is the principal short-range air-to-air weapon for the RAF's Tornado GR4 and Typhoon fighter aircraft.

Announcing the contract at DSEI, Michael Fallon, UK Secretary of State for Defence, said: "ASRAAM missiles provide our Typhoon jets with battle-winning technology on combat missions and these upgrades will help to make it a missile for the future, ready for use on our new [F-35] Lightning II aircraft."

The RAF's current inventories of ASRAAM are approaching their mid-life point, when it is common practice for air-to-air missiles to be returned to the manufacturer to be serviced, and for obsolescent parts and the energetic components (the rocket fuel and warhead explosives) to be replaced.

However, MBDA has an active production line building the Common Anti-Air Modular Missile (CAMM) for the Royal Navy and the British Army and CAMM has an exceptionally high level of commonality with ASRAAM - the only major difference is the seeker, infrared (IR) in ASRAAM and radio frequency (RF) in CAMM. As a result of this commonality and the economies of scale from having an active production line, MBDA is able to build entirely new ASRAAMs for the RAF at a cheaper price than conducting a standard mid-life refurbishment. This has the additional advantage of re-setting the clock on the ASRAAM's out-of-service date and allowing for improved components to be installed. It also sets the scene for a potential wider update to the missile when it comes up to its new middle-of-life point around 2030, when technologies will have advanced and decisions will need to be made on retiring/extending the service life of the Typhoon.

DSEI 2015: UK formally launches Defence Electronics & Components Agency


Charles Forrester, London - IHS Jane's Defence Industry

18 September 2015


UK minister for defence procurement Philip Dunne formally launched the Defence Electronics & Components Agency (DECA) at the DSEI 2015 exhibition on 15 September.

DECA was initially formed in April 2015 from the Defence Support Group (DSG) Electronics and Components Business Unit, following the sale of the remaining DSG land business to Babcock. However, formal announcements were delayed due to the UK's general election.

The role of the agency is to assure in-house access to support for current in-service and future Ministry of Defence (MoD) platforms. As a government agency, the organisation is able to work on and manage work on sensitive platforms while being able to provide guarantees of security of intellectual property rights (IPR) and ITAR compliance.

En 24 heures, Thales reçu commande de son système de missiles STARStreak pour deux pays du Sud-Est Asiatique.

Présent au salon DSEI à Londres, l'équipementier à reçu commande pour les forces armées de Malaisie d'un système de défense aérienne intégré Forceshield et  de missiles STARStreak. Ceux-ci permettront à la Malaisie de remplacer le système de missiles STARBurst en service depuis le milieu des années 90. Le contrat qui s'élève à 100 millions de Livres Sterling a été signé avec Global Komited, entité du groupe Weststar. "Je suis très heureux de voir un nouveau pays retenir le système ForceSHIELD. Cette solution de nouvelle génération, du capteur à l'effecteur permettra à la Malaisie de bénéficier de capacités à la pointe de la technologie." a déclaré Victori Chavez, PDG de Thales au Royaume-Uni.

Le lendemain, dans un nouveau communiqué, il déclara "Nous sommes très honorés de continuer à servir l'Armée royale thaïlandaise comme fournisseur clé de capacités avancées pour assurer la défense aérienne de la Thaïlande." L'armée royale thaïlandaise s'est elle aussi porteé acquéresse du missiles STARStreak. Signé avec le groupe DataGate, le contrat est de plusieurs millions de livres sterling.

Ce missiles opère à plus de Mach 3. Sa vitesse et son agilité lui permettent de résister aux systèmes de contre mesures. Guidé par laser, il a été vendu aux deux pays avec un Lanceur Multiple Léger (LML) de nouvelle génération trépied. Ces commandes permettront aux deux pays de couvrir leur espace aérien contre des avions de combats évoluant à basse altitude, des hélicoptères ou des drones.

"Cette vente est une bonne nouvelle. Elle aidera a sécuriser des emplois hautement qualifiés en Irlande du Nord". a commenté le Premier Ministre britannique David Cameron.

DSEI 2015 : Bientôt du Brimstone Dual Mode sur les Apache britanniques ?


Actualités  Nathan Gain  17 septembre, 2015  


Se perdre dans un salon de défense a parfois du bon. S’il est impossible de manquer le stand MBDA, il sera par contre plus ardu de tomber sur un second espace déployé par le missilier à l’occasion du salon DSEI. Déporté à contrecœur dans un coin de hall, ce second espace proposé par MBDA attirera néanmoins directement le regard du visiteur égaré. De fait, impossible d’éviter l’imposant simulateur Apache installé en son sein. Ajoutez à cela une pincée de missiles Brimstone Dual Mode, et vous voici devant la nouvelle offensive de charme lancée officiellement cette semaine par MBDA: l’intégration du missile air-sol Brimstone sur les hélicoptères d’attaque Apache de l’Armée britannique.




Trois semaines après l’officialisation du contrat de mise à niveau des Apache britanniques au standard E, MBDA entend bien faire de « son » Brimstone Dual Mode un élément essentiel de l’arsenal des futurs Guardian (et appelant donc au remplacement de l’AGM-114 Hellfire). En effet, chez MBDA, l’on part du constat suivant : « Pourquoi acheter Américain si l’on peut adapter un missile existant aux requêtes de l’Armée britannique ? »


Des Brimstone Dual Mode bientôt sur les Apache de la « British Army »?


D’autant plus que le Brimstone ne manque pas de qualités. Après avoir fait ses preuves sur Tornado GR4 en Afghanistan, Lybie, puis en Iraq, il est devenu depuis lors le chouchou des pilotes de la RAF (au point de faire des jaloux outre-Atlantique). Grâce à son système de guidage dédoublé, assuré à la fois par un laser semi-actif et/ou un radar millimétrique, le Brimstone présente une précision maximale. Cela fait de celui-ci le seul missile utilisé en frappe aérienne offrant une capacité « tir et oublie » capable de toucher un objectif se déplaçant à grande vitesse. De même, sa charge explosive réduite est toute indiquée pour les petites cibles et réduit presque à néant le risque de dommage collatéral.

Bien entendu, en ce qui concerne l’intégration sur Apache, il s’agira dans un premier temps d’adapter le Brimstone existant aux standards requis par l’Armée britannique.

N’entendant pas s’arrêter en si bon chemin, l’on évoque déjà, chez le missilier, l’intégration éventuelle du Brimstone Dual Mode sur le futur Standard 3 d’un certain hélicoptère d’attaque. Affaire à suivre donc, et de très près.

DSEI 2015 : Metravib fournira les oreilles du programme Scorpion


Actualités  Nathan Gain  16 septembre, 2015  


La grande famille du programme Scorpion s’est récemment agrandie avec l’arrivée toute fraîche d’un petit nouveau : Metravib. Leader mondial de la détection de tir acoustique, la société lyonnaise équipera les futurs VBMR (Véhicule Blindé Multi Rôle) Griffon et EBRC (Engin Blindé de Reconnaissance et de Combat) Jaguar avec le système SLATE (Système de Localisation Acoustique de Tireur Embusqué).


Metravib, leader mondial de leader mondial de la détection acoustique de tir, s’expose à DSEI 2015


Afin de correspondre aux requêtes notifiées par la DGA, SLATE est appelé à dépasser technologiquement les autres membres de la gamme de détecteurs acoustiques déjà proposée par Metravib. Non content de reprendre les forces de ses systèmes frères, SLATE intègrera également deux nouvelles capacités : la détection de tirs simultanés et la détection du mode de tir (rafale, automatique, coup par coup). De même, les différents systèmes sont appelés à communiquer entre eux au travers du BMS des futurs Jaguar et Griffon.

La phase de développement de cette version musclée du SLATE devrait commencer peu après DSEI et s’étaler sur une période de deux ans, pour logiquement aboutir en 2018 avec les premières livraisons de série.


SLATE protégera bientôt les futurs VBMR Griffon et EBMR Jaguar appelés à moderniser la cavalerie de l’armée
de Terre (Crédit: RTD/Nexter Systems/Thales)



Si Metravib, programme sensible oblige, reste discret sur les détails de ce contrat, les rumeurs de vente de « centaines de systèmes » circulent dans les arcanes de DSEI.

« Le système SLATE a démontré en opérations être un capteur d’agression majeur et incontournable qui doit équiper tout blindé d’un standard moderne. La capacité de ce détecteur à être couplé à l’armement pour permettre sa mise en direction rapide n’est plus à démontrer. Enfin, les informations fournies par le SLATE peuvent être automatiquement transmises par le système d’information du blindé à d’autres échelons. Pour toutes ces raisons, le SLATE a gagné, sur les théâtres d’opérations, l’estime et la confiance des équipages blindés français, » a récemment témoigné le Général Charles Beaudouin, directeur de la STAT (Section Technique de l’Armée de Terre), à l’occasion de la livraison de 60 systèmes SLATE additionnels à l’armée de Terre.

« Scorpion », inscrit dans le cadre du projet armée de Terre 2020, assurera dés 2018 le renouvellement des capacités médianes du combat de contact autour des VBMR Jaguar et EBRC Griffon. Il intègre également la mise en réseau future de tous les systèmes en usage au niveau tactique, ainsi que la rénovation du char Leclerc. Outre Metravib, le GME « Engins Blindés Multi-Rôles –EBMR », est également constitué des géants de la défense Nexter Systems, Renault Trucks Défense et Thales.

Ambitieux, visionnaire, innovant…nombreux sont les qualificatifs associés au programme Scorpion. Le qualifier également de « rassembleur » est plus que jamais indiqué, tant celui-ci contribue, mois après mois, à mettre à profit l’ensemble du savoir-faire de l’industrie de défense française.
