Northrop, Navy Elaborate on BAMS Plans
By

Northrop Grumman has elaborated on the differences between the MQ-4C Broad Area Maritime Surveillance (BAMS) demonstrator aircraft and the planned capabilities of the production aircraft.

US Navy Capt. Robert Dishman, briefing reporters at the Navy League's Sea Air Space Exhibition on 11 April, spoke about experiences with BAMS in operational environments.

The two BAMS demonstrators are modified RQ-4As, boasting a 2,000lb payload. The production-standard BAMS will be larger and carry a thousand additional pounds of sensors. Though the demonstrators only get 15-degree coverage from electronic and visual sensors, the production model will have 360-degree capability and greatly increased sensor range.

Sensor data will be transmitted using commercial and military satellites to a mission control room staffed by four operators and two integrated instructors for training purposes.

BAMS will be based at Beale AFB, where a central maintenance hub will work on closely with Air Force Global Hawk squadrons. Additional operational bases will be maintained at four other locations - a US East Coast Naval Air Station, NAS Sigonella in Italy, Guam in the Pacific and Al Dhafra in the UAE; all international bases currently host Air Force Global Hawks. The ultimate goal is to keep permanent eyes on certain sectors of ocean.

Capt. Dishman also described the operational history of the BAMS demonstrators, which are currently deployed to Al Dhafra in the UAE, racking up 24 hours of flight time every three days in support of naval activities in the region; specifically mentioned were flights over the Strait of Hormuz, which separates Iran from the Arabian Peninsula. Over 70% of flight hours in the BAMS programme, 4,065 as of Capt. Dishman's brief, were classified as combat sorties.

Aegis Combat Systems Installed on Two New U.S. Navy Destroyers





MOORESTOWN, N.J., April 20th, 2011 -- The U.S. Navy, supported by Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT), has installed the Aegis Combat System aboard two new Navy destroyers, USS Gravely (DDG 107) and USS Jason Dunham (DDG 109).
The Aegis Combat Systems aboard the ships have also been certified as fully operational through the tests known as Combat Systems Ship Qualification Trials.
During the trials, the ships' Aegis Combat Systems were evaluated for combat-readiness through comprehensive surface, subsurface and anti-air warfare exercises. These included manned raids and electronic attack scenarios, as well as thorough testing of the systems' tactical data link and air defense capabilities.
"The Aegis systems installed on these two ships represent continued improvements to what is a very agile and capable Aegis system,” said Carmen Valentino, Lockheed Martin’s vice president of Future Surface Combat systems. “Our Aegis team has successfully delivered 15 technological evolutions to the Navy, taking the Aegis combat system from an anti-ship missile system to the basis for the U.S. approach to global missile defense.”
The Aegis Weapon System includes the SPY-1 radar, the Navy's most advanced radar system. When paired with the MK 41 Vertical Launching System, it is capable of delivering missiles for every mission and threat environment in naval warfare.
Including these two new Navy ships, the Aegis Weapon System is deployed on 95 ships around the globe. Aegis is the weapon system of choice for Australia, Japan, Norway, the Republic of Korea and Spain. Aegis-equipped ships combined have more than 1,200 years of at-sea operational experience and have launched more than 3,800 missiles in tests and actual operations.
The USS Gravely and USS Jason Dunham are both Arleigh Burke class guided-missile destroyers.
Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security company that employs about 126,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services. The Corporation's 2010 sales from continuing operations were $45.8 billion.

Conférence sur la lutte anti-sous-marine pour l’état-major Europe-Afrique de l’US Navy


L’état-major Europe-Afrique des forces navales américaines a organisé sa première conférence de théâtre sur la lutte anti-sous-marine (ASM), le 19 avril à Naples.

Durant la conférence, les officiers de l’état-major ont concentré leur attention sur l’amélioration de l’efficacité de la lutte ASM dans la zone d’opération du théâtre européen.
La lutte ASM utilise des moyens comme les bâtiments, les avions, les hélicoptères et les sous-marins pour comprendre l’espace de bataille sous-marin.
« La prolifération mondiale des technologies sous-marines, en particulier les sous-marins, constitue une menace pour la sécurité nationale, » a déclaré le vice-amiral John M. Richardson, commandant des forces sous-marines américaines. « Notre supériorité sous-marine et l’accès libre aux ressources communes est en danger si nous ne pouvons conserver notre avantage, avec les meilleurs personnels, techniques et matériels, pour contrer cette menace grandissante. »
La conférence a duré une journée et a abordé les principaux problèmes, afin de s’assurer que toutes les actions ASM du théâtre sont en accord avec les directives du commandant des forces sous-marines.
L’amiral James G. Stavridis, commandant du théâtre européen et des forces de l’OTAN (SACEUR), a aussi participé à la conférence. Il a abordé des sujets comme les opérations actuelles et futures, les capacités des partenaires et la construction d’alliance renforcées.
L’OTAN est aussi un important contributeur de la lutte ASM, utilisant des systèmes actifs à basse fréquence, des avions de patrouille maritime et des sous-marins à propulsion anaérobie.
Pendant la conférence, l’amiral Stavridis a discuté de « la constitution d’alliances plus fortes » et de la manière dont cela pouvait être vu lors d’exercices comme “Noble Manta”, “Proud Manta” et “Bold Monarch”. Ces exercices démontrent la détermination de l’OTAN à maintenir les compétences et à améliorer l’interopérabilité dans les opérations coordonnées ASM et de surveillance côtière.
L’amiral Stavridis a aussi évoqué les contributions importantes de la force sous-marine pendant l’opération Odyssey Dawn.
« Je voudrais adresser un classique Bravo Zulu à l’excellente force sous-marine pendant “Odyssey Dawn”, » a déclaré l’amiral Stavridis. « Vous avez fait un travail formidable là-bas, bien joué. »
Bien que la conférence n’ait duré qu’une seule journée, le groupe de 15 officiers supérieurs qui y a participé estime que les conclusions sont bénéfiques.
« Il n’y a rien de mieux que de rencontrer, face à face, nos supérieurs et de recevoir leurs directives et leurs ordres, directement et personnellement. Nous allons tous continuer à nous concentrer sur cette partie très importante de la guerre navale, » a déclaré le Capt. Mark Davis, Commandant de la Task Force 69.

Le commandant d’un bâtiment américain participant aux opérations en Libye renvoyé


Le 23 avril, le commandant de la 6è Flotte américaine a démis de leurs fonctions le commandant et le commandant en second du bâtiment amphibie USS Ponce.
Le vice-amiral Harry B. Harris Jr. a relevé le Cmdr. Etta Jones, le commandant du Ponce, pour avoir fait preuve de qualités insuffisantes de leader, pour ne pas avoir correctement enquêté, signalé et sanctionné des marins impliqués dans des bizutages. De plus, elle n’a pas manié correctement une arme chargée au cours d’une alerte de sécurité, ce qui a mis en danger une partie de son équipage.
Le renvoi du commandant en second, leLt. Cmdr. Kurt Boenisch, est dû à son incapacité à soutenir le commandement et son commandant.
« Lorsque des officiers ne montrent pas le bon exemple ou ne font pas respecter les règles sur leur bâtiment, ils ne servent pas correctement nos Marins, notre Marine, et au final, notre Pays, » a déclaré l’amiral Harris.
Le Capt. Brad Skillman, commandant adjoint de l’escadrille 4 de bâtiments amphibies, a pris le commandement du Ponce.

L'analyse de la rédaction :
Le Cmdr. Jones est le 8è commandant renvoyé depuis le début de l’année par l’US Navy.
Il y a moins de 2 mois, le commandant et un officier mariner, le [i]command master chief
du destroyer Stout avaient été démis de leurs fonctions. Un officier, 6 officiers mariniers supérieurs et un officier-marinier avaient aussi été débarqués après qu’une enquête ait révélé de multiples incidents de mauvaise conduite de l’équipage lors d’escales.

U.S. Navy celebrates 500th Super Hornet, Growler program delivery
US Navy - Page 22 Cf36fbf294b47b57eaffcbafe8e99210c818881f_big
The U.S. Navy and its industry partners marked the 500th delivery of the F/A-18 Super Hornet and EA-18G Growler aircraft during a celebration at the Boeing facility here yesterday.

“Today is another significant milestone for a program that has by any measure exceeded expectations for cost, schedule and performance. The PMA-265/Hornet Industry Team has consistently delivered capable and reliable aircraft to our fleet customer,” said Capt. Mark Darrah, F/A-18 and EA-18G program manager (PMA-265).

Industry partners Northrop Grumman, General Electric Aircraft Engines and Raytheon also attended the ceremony. Northrop Grumman builds the aft and center fuselage portion of the airframe and provides the ALQ-218 AEA system for the Growler, while GE Aircraft Engines manufactures the F414 engine. Raytheon produces the APG-79 Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar, multiple racks and launchers and the ALR-67V(3) Radar Warning System.

“Today the Department of the Navy is employing more than 1,100 Legacy Hornets, Super Hornets and Growlers supporting operations world-wide, demonstrating exceptional flexibility across several mission areas and geographic locations,” Darrah said.

Built on the nation’s first multi-mission strike fighter, the Hornet, the F/A-18 Super Hornet and continues to give the operational commander more flexibility in employing tactical aircraft in rapidly changing scenarios. The Airborne Electronic Attack EA-18G Growler recently began its first deployment supporting overseas operations.

Sur les 51 frégates lance-missiles du type O.H. Perry mises en service entre 1977 et 1989, seules 27 sont encore en service. Le dernier retrait en date est celui de l'USS Jarrett (FFG 33), dont la cérémonie de désarmement est intervenue le 21 avril à San Diego. Rentré le 5 avril à sa base de Mayport à l'issue de son ultime déploiement, l'USS Doyle (FFG 39) sera, quant à lui, retiré du service le 29 juillet, ce qui fera tomber le nombre de bâtiments de ce type opérationnels au sein de l'US Navy à 26.
Longues de 138.8 mètres pour un déplacement de 4100 tonnes en charge, les FFG 7 disposent d'une tourelle de 76mm, un système multitubes Phalanx, deux canons de 25mm, des mitrailleuses de 12.7mm et six tubes lance-torpilles. Elles peuvent, en outre, embarquer deux hélicoptères. Au début des années 2000, ces frégates ont perdu leur rampe Mk13 qui mettait en oeuvre 40 missiles surface-air SM-1 MR et missiles antinavire Harpoon.
Une partie des navires désarmés a été transférée à des pays alliés, comme l'Egypte, Bahreïn, la Turquie et le Pakistan.

General Dynamics Awarded $1.2 Billion for Second FY11 Virginia-class Submarine by U.S. Navy


GROTON, Conn. – The U.S. Navy has released $1.2 billion for the construction of the 14th Virginia-class submarine, SSN-787, to General Dynamics Electric Boat, a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD). This award marks the beginning of production of two submarines per year on the Virginia-class program.

The release of the funding allows procurement of long lead-time components that will support the planned official construction start later this year on the as-yet-unnamed submarine at Electric Boat and its teammate, Huntington Ingalls Industries in Newport News, Va.

"Today represents the culmination of an extraordinary effort by the Virginia-class team," said John D. Holmander, Electric Boat’s vice president for the Virginia Program. "From the engineers and designers who reduced the cost of the Virginia Class, to the shipbuilders who have delivered the submarines ahead of schedule and under budget, to the vendors who worked with us on cost-containment strategies, and of course the Navy, which has managed the program now recognized as a model for Pentagon procurement, this has truly been a collective effort."

Holmander also credited the Connecticut, Rhode Island and Virginia congressional delegations for their tireless support of the Virginia-class program, resulting in approval for the Navy to double submarine production from one to two submarines per year.

“This milestone is possible only because of the Connecticut, Rhode Island and Virginia delegations’ efforts to educate their colleagues on the tremendous contribution of Virginia-class submarines to the United States’ national security,” Holmander said.

The shipbuilding team’s attention remains focused on capturing additional efficiencies wherever possible, Holmander said.

"Reducing the cost of Virginia Class ships to the point where the Navy can afford to acquire two ships per year has demanded an intense process of continuous improvement," Holmander said. “Our task now is to ensure that we demonstrate additional improvement on each ship so taxpayers get the best possible return on the nation’s investment in submarines."

The Virginia class is the first U.S. Navy warship designed from the keel up for the full range of mission requirements in the post-Cold War era. Optimized for maximum technological and operational flexibility, these submarines play a key role in the nation's defense with their stealth, firepower and unlimited endurance.

Virginia-class submarines displace 7,800 tons, with a hull length of 377 feet and a diameter of 34 feet. They are capable of speeds in excess of 25 knots and can dive to a depth greater than 800 feet, while carrying Mark 48 advanced capability torpedoes, Tomahawk land attack missiles and unmanned underwater vehicles.

Electric Boat last received funds for two submarines in 1991, when the Navy ordered the USS Connecticut (SSN 22) and USS Louisiana (SSBN 743), the final Ohio-class ballistic missile submarine.

SECNAV: 11 carriers ‘about right’


Days after the White House called for a $400 billion reduction in defense spending over the next decade, the Navy’s top civilian wanted to make one thing clear: The Navy needs 11 aircraft carriers.
“I think the number we’ve got is about right,” Navy Secretary Ray Mabus said Wednesday during a breakfast meeting with reporters.
He said the ships give the nation a wide array of capabilities that will continue to evolve to address the country’s needs.
“I do think that carriers give us an incredibly flexible platform and I think that the people of Japan would agree today on the flexibility of carriers,” Mabus said.
On April 13, President Obama called for $400 billion in defense cuts over the next decade. Where those reductions would come from has not been determined but much of that decision will likely fall to CIA Director Leon Panetta, the White House’s nominee to replace Defense Secretary Robert Gates. While in the House of Representatives between 1977 and 1993, Panetta voted for a 5 percent across-the-board cut in defense spending, but against a 10 percent cut. He also voted to cut funds for the Strategic Defense Initiative and missile defense program and supported a 40 percent reduction in overseas troops.
Reducing the number of carriers in the fleet is frequently mentioned as a way to cut spending. Besides removing the cost of a single warship, it reduces spending on aircraft and eliminates the need for ships that escort the carrier.
But talks of reducing the number of carriers have sparked controversy. In May 2010, Gates asked if the country truly needs to have 11 of the ships.
“Do we really need 11 carrier strike groups for another 30 years when no other country has more than one?” he said at the Navy League’s Sea Air Space Exposition. “At the end of the day we have to ask whether the nation can really afford a Navy that relies on $3 [billion] to $6 billion destroyers, $7 billion submarines and $11 billion carriers.”
Gates later clarified his statement after receiving backlash.
“I may want to change things, but I’m not crazy. I’m not going to cut a carrier, OK? But people ought to start thinking about how they’re going to use carriers,” he said.
Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Gary Roughead has also supported an 11-carrier fleet.
“If you want to be able to be the global navy, I think the nation needs 11 carriers. That allows us to run the response plan that we have, and I believe that 11 carriers are the number we should have,” he said.
That number will drop to 10 when the carrier Enterprise leaves service in 2012, and won’t return to 11 until the carrier Gerald R. Ford enters service in 2015. Mabus said he doesn’t think this will limit the Navy because carriers regularly are unavailable for maintenance, effectively reducing the fleet by one.
Both Roughead and Mabus have recently cheered the capabilities of big-deck amphibious assault ships — the Navy has nine in commission — saying it’s akin to having an extra fleet of flattops. Mabus highlighted the role amphibious ships play in enforcing the no-fly-zone over Libya, an operation with air support from Marine AV-8B Harriers and helicopters but not a single flight from a carrier

C'est un porte-avions américain, l'USS Carl Vinson, qui a été chargé hier d'immerger le corps du chef d'Al-Qaïda en mer d'Arabie, à une position tenue secrète. La dépouille d'Oussama Ben Laden, tué dimanche au Pakistan lors d'une opération commando héliportée menée par les Navy SEALs, a été transférée à bord de l'USS Carl Vinson, déployé actuellement au Moyen-Orient. Selon les autorités américaines, une cérémonie funéraire s'est déroulée sur le pont du porte-avions, dans le respect des traditions musulmanes, avant que le corps du chef terroriste ne soit immergé.
Oussama Ben Laden est tenu pour responsable de nombreux attentats, dont les attaques du 11 septembre 2001, qui ont fait plus de 3000 victimes aux Etats-Unis.

Direct Attack Moving Target Capability Tests Successfully


Direct Attack Moving Target Capability Tests Successfully

NAVAL AIR STATION PATUXENT RIVER, Md. – The U.S. Navy’s Direct Attack Moving Target Capability has successfully completed the final scheduled integrated test, including a live round test conducted March 21.

DAMTC is a modification to the Joint Direct Attack Munition that provides a dual-mode (GPS and laser) guidance capability. The 18 completed tests to date show the requirements to be able to strike a moving and maneuvering target are being met.

“This will give the warfighter the ultimate ability to pursue time-sensitive targets and targets of opportunity,” said Capt. Carl Chebi, program manager for Precision Strike Weapons, PMA-201. “That, combined with the dual-mode capability of this weapon, brings a targeting flexibility that will be critical to mission success.”

The tests, conducted at Naval Air Warfare Center at China Lake, Calif., use Circular Error Probable, or CEP, as one measure of success. CEP marks the circle around the target within which 50 percent of the bombs are statistically expected to impact.

“While not a statistically relevant number, if five of 10 weapons dropped are in that circle around the target, the weapon has met its CEP requirement,” said Mark Lakner, Integrated Product Team Lead for PMA-201’s Direct Attack Weapons. “One guided test vehicle has been released in each of the 18 tests thus far, and all tests have been considered successful. “

The inert tests, or ones that do not use live rounds, include a telemetry kit inside the weapon which allows data to be captured. The information collected includes where the weapon is at any given moment and the speed and angle at which it is falling. This helps the test team know exactly what to expect when a live round is released.

“In our live weapon configuration, there’s no telemetry kit that fits or is qualified, so we forfeit that information,” Lakner said.

During the testing process, DAMTC has undergone a configuration change to replace the current glass window with one made of sapphire, which will better withstand exposure to weather and the elements. To ensure the change does not adversely affect system performance, three additional regression tests are scheduled for July 2011.

In regression testing, one aircraft will be loaded with four weapons – two with the old configuration and two with the new sapphire window. The aircraft will drop one of each type, with GPS coordinates to strike a shipping container designated as ‘target A’ while a ground laser identifies an alternate shipping container as ‘target B.’

“Once the weapon is released, we’re going to lase ‘target B,’ and the weapon should change course and strike there,” Lakner said. “Then we’ll make a second hot run with reverse target designation. That will complete one flight test.”

The test will be repeated two more times to complete regression testing. The additional regression tests are not expected to impact the program’s timetable.

“The team has been working at a high tempo against a very aggressive schedule,” Lakner said. “They’ve been dealing with adversity and this is no easy task, but the contractor, the government team, and all involved are doing an exceptional job to make these changes in such a short amount of time.”

This target capability provides tactical flexibility for use on all F/A-18 Hornet, Super Hornet and AV-8B aircraft. The modification kit requires minimal logistical adjustments that will save time, money and manpower.

Operational testing is expected to begin in late summer 2011, with DAMTC reaching initial operating capability by late winter 2012.

JSOW C-1 variant successfully tested


May 2, 2011 by Marcel van Leeuwen · Comments Off

US Navy - Page 22 JSOW-navair-tests-600x398

A U.S. Navy F/A-18F Super Hornet completed the first captive carriage test of the AGM-154 Joint Standoff Weapon (JSOW) C-1 variant at the Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division, China Lake, Calif., March 4.
This variant of the combat-proven JSOW provides upgraded capability to strike moving maritime targets. The weapon’s data link allows the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet aircraft to relay targeting information to the weapon.
Captive carriage testing is executed to ensure the C-1 maturity is sufficient to support more extensive testing to ensure warfighter requirements are met.
“The JSOW team has reached a critical milestone in the C-1 program,” said Capt. Carl Chebi, Precision Strike Weapons (PMA-201) program manager. “The team is on target and moving toward the full system captive carriage test in spring and the first free flight event later this year.”
According to a report, the weapon was able to enter the Link-16 network – a secure military tactical data exchange – to receive network-enabled messages. Operators use Link-16, which encrypts words to coordinate communications, to search for potential hostiles. From ground to air, forces are able to exchange secure tactical data, be it picture, text or voice, in near-real time.
“The team planned and executed this event to test the JSOW C-1’s Link-16 network interoperability,” said Cmdr. Douglas Phelan, JSOW integrated product team lead. “All major and primary objectives of this test were met.”
JSOW C-1 is an all-weather, day or night, launch-and-leave, network-enabled weapon that employs a Global Positioning System/inertial navigation system. The weapon uses an infrared seeker for terminal guidance.
The JSOW team will continue testing the C-1 variant with additional captive carriage and free flights later this year.
PMA-201 is responsible for the research, development and acquisition of the Fleet’s air-to-ground precision guided weapons, general-purpose bombs and aircraft armament-related equipment

Tests prove laser JDAM accuracy on moving targets
By Stephen Trimble

The latest version of a Boeing-made bomb is proving accurate against moving targets in early testing, but one component has been changed to improve its reliability.

The US Navy has dropped 18 joint direct attack munitions (JDAM) fitted with a dual-mode GPS and laser seeker against moving and manoeuvering targets, the service said.

"All tests have been considered successful," said Capt Carl Chebi, the navy's programme manager for precision strike weapons.

Dubbed the direct attack moving target capability (DAMTC), the laser-guided JDAM must strike five out of 10 times within a certain area around the target to pass the navy's accuracy test.

The navy did not describe the size of the circle around the target. However, a 2010 report by the director of the office of test and evaluation describes the distance as a radius of 6m (19.7ft) from the aimpoint.

Boeing has changed the glass window for the bomb's laser seeker with a sapphire window, the navy said. The new material will help the weapon "withstand exposure to weather and the elements".

Final testing to add the moving target capability for JDAM should be complete by the end of next year, the navy said.

The DAMTC version of the bomb has been ordered for the USN's and US Marine Corps' Boeing F/A-18s and McDonnell Douglas AV-8Bs.

Meanwhile, Boeing has announced receiving two contracts worth up to $100 million since 14 March for the JDAM programme. A $92 million deal signed by the US Air Force orders a second batch of 4,000 guidance kits for JDAMs. The USN also signed an $8 million contract on 17 March for 700 laser seekers to support the DAMTC programme.

Curtiss-Wright to Produce RAST Systems for US Navy DDG 51 Programme



Curtiss-Wright Corporation has received a contract to produce recovery assist, secure and traverse (RAST) systems in support of the US Navy DDG 51 flight IIA forward-build programme.
Under the multimillion-dollar contract, one RAST system will be initially authorised to support DDG 113 with options for follow-on systems for DDG 114 and DDG 115 destroyers.
RAST is a helicopter-handling system that integrates all the functions required for safe operations of large ship-borne helicopters.
The system aids in safe launch and recovery, securing and manoeuvring of helicopters, especially in difficult weather and sea conditions.
Work will be carried out by Indal Technologies in Canada, with the first delivery scheduled for December 2012.
Approximately 200 integrated aircraft handling systems have been delivered to navies around the world.

Army, Navy finalize transfer of JHSVs




The move to transfer custody of all five Joint High Speed Vessels to the Navy was formally agreed upon Monday with the signing of a memorandum of agreement between the Navy and Army.
The transfer was approved in December during Army-Navy war fighter talks. Previously, each service was planning to buy, field and crew its own force of JHSVs.
Uniformed Army personnel had been training to crew the new ships, with the first vessel scheduled to enter service late this year. Army watercraft personnel have been reassigned, and all JHSVs will be operated by the Navy’s Military Sealift Command crewed by civilian mariners or contract mariners.
The ships are intended primarily for logistic operations, although they will be armed for self-defense. The aluminum, wave-piercing catamaran JHSVs are under construction by Austal USA in Mobile, Ala., based on a commercial ferry design.
In addition to the Navy and Army, the ships are intended for use by “multiple non-Navy customers,” according to the memorandum.
The JHSV program was formed in 2006 from a merger of the Army’s Theater Support Vessel and the Navy High-Speed Connector programs. The Navy has been handling design, contracting and oversight of the program.
The Army operates a sizeable fleet, including landing craft, tugs and barges to support waterborne logistic operations. At the instigation of the then-Army chief of staff, Gen. George Casey, the services last year discussed the potential transfer of all Army watercraft to the Navy, but in the end only the JHSVs will be transferred.
The Spearhead, first of the JHSVs, has been named by the Army and is scheduled to be delivered in December. The agreement notes that the Spearhead’s name will be retained by the Navy, but the Navy can rename the other JHSVs should it choose.
The JHSV program currently envisions a total of 10 ships, but planners have envisioned a greater role for the vessels, and the number may grow to as many as 23.

Carrier Bush prepares for next week's deployment



Some 6,000 sailors assigned to the aircraft carrier George H.W. Bush and its sister ships will be saying their goodbyes over the weekend before a scheduled deployment Wednesday.
The Bush will depart on its maiden combat deployment alongside three other Norfolk-based ships: the guided-missile cruiser Anzio and destroyers Mitscher and Truxtun. The cruiser Gettysburg from Mayport, Fla., will round out the strike group.
The occasion marks many firsts: in addition to this being the first deployment for both the Bush and the Truxtun, it will also be the first time the newest electronics jamming airplanes – the EA-18G Growlers – head to sea on an East Coast carrier.
The Growler, which has the same airframe as an F/A-18 Super Hornet, replaces the old EA-6B Prowler.
Other planes in Carrier Air Wing Eight, including Hornet and Super Hornet squadrons from Oceana Naval Air Station, expect to fly missions above both Iraq and Afghanistan. The strike group will replace the Norfolk-based Enterprise carrier strike group, which is currently on duty in the Arabian Sea.
“The George H.W. Bush Strike Group is ready to go,” said Rear Adm. Nora Tyson, commander of the Bush strike group. “These sailors have worked extremely hard over the last year and we are fully prepared to execute any and all tasking in support of the nation’s maritime strategy.”

L'US Navy baptise un destroyer du nom d'un SEAL tombé en Afghanistan
Le 62ème destroyer lance-missiles américain du type Arleigh Burke a été baptisé samedi aux chantiers Bath Iron Works (General Dynamics) de Bath, dans l'Etat du Maine. Le DDG 112 a été nommé Michael P. Murphy, du nom d'un Navy SEAL tombé au combat le 28 juin 2005, lors d'un accrochage entre son équipe (4 commandos) et des talibans dans les montagnes afghanes. Le lieutenant Michael P. Murphy a reçu à titre posthume la Medal of Honor pour son action lors de cette opération. C'est d'ailleurs la première fois depuis la guerre du Vietnam qu'un marin américain reçoit cette distinction. Pour honorer la mémoire et le courage de ce militaire, l'US Navy a choisi de donner son nom au dernier-né de ses bâtiments de combat.
Le navire a été baptisé le 7 mai, date anniversaire du lieutenant Murphy, qui aurait eu 35 ans. Lors de la cérémonie, sa mère, Maureen Murphy a brisé sur la proue du DDG 112 la traditionnelle bouteille de champagne.
L'USS Michael P. Murphy sera livré d'ici 2012 à la marine américaine. Long de 155.3 mètres pour un déplacement de plus de 9200 tonnes en charge, ce destroyer embarquera 96 missiles Tomahawk, SM-2 MR, SM-3 et ESSM RIM, une tourelle de 127mm, des systèmes multitubes Phalanx, deux canons de 25mm, des mitrailleuses de 12.7mm, six tubes lance-torpilles et deux hélicoptères Sea Hawk
