Rappel du premier message :

Citation :
« J'aime les USA, et je combats pour elle», c'est ainsi que Lamia Lahlou commente son adhésion à l'armée américaine, et sa participation à la guerre contre l'iraq- depuis déjà 8 mois-. Née au Maroc en 1986, Lamia Lahlou rejoint l'armée américaine 3 ans après les attentats du 11 septembre 2001.

Tempérée par sa propre volonté, «la marocaine», ne mâche pas ses mots pour affirmer que ce pas emboité s'inscrit dans le cadre d'un «vrai Jihad». Rapporte une idéo diffusée largement sur Internet (Voir ci-aprés).

Choquée par la mort de sa meilleure amie, Lamia croit dur comme fer que l'adhésion à l'armée américaine est le seul et unique moyen susceptible de calmer le feu de sa vengeance.

A noter que les USA continuent à «renforcer » son armée via le recrutement des marocains, à l'heure où ALQIADIA ciblent d'autres recrues du Maroc vers la Hollande et la Belgique, tout en passant par la Syrie, l'Espagne et l'Iraq.

5 000 tonnes de munitions US sont arrivées en Allemagne


US Army - Page 36 1031

C'est, selon l'US Army, le plus gros volume de munitions acheminé en Europe depuis dix ans! 5 000 tonnes qui sont arrivées le 17 février dans le port allemand de Nordenham. Le porte-conteneur Seattle (affrété par le Military Sealift Command) a effectué le transport maritime (photo TSC).

Le débarquement de ce stock et son transport vers le dépôt de Miesau (le Theater Logistics Support Center Europe) ont lieu sur deux jours; les opérations ont été conduites par le 21st Theater Sustainment Command et la 598th Transportation Brigade.

Aux personnels de ces deux unités de manipuler les 415 conteneurs de munitions et de les convoyer vers Miesau où ils seront stockés. Une partie sera utilisée lors de manœuvres comme Atlantic Resolve ou Anakonda 2016.

Au retour, le Seattle a transporté des munitions déclassées d'une valeur de 177 millions de dollars.

US Army acquires additional Excalibur rounds

Geoff Fein, Washington, DC - IHS Jane's Missiles & Rockets

02 March 2016

US Army - Page 36 1360
The US Army is requesting USD39.2 million in its FY 2017 budget for an additional 372 Excalibur projectiles. Raytheon received a
USD31.8 million award in February for 464 projectiles. Source: US Army




Key Points
•The US Army has a plan for upgrading Excalibur, which could include addressing any concerns about the projectile's GPS guidance capability
•The Army's budget documents show no planned funding for Excalibur beyond FY 2017.

Raytheon has received an USD31.8 million award from the US Army for an additional 464 155 mm Excalibur 1b projectiles to be delivered over the next 18 months.

The award, made in early February, demonstrates the army's continued interest in maintaining the capability, Paul Daniels, business development lead at Raytheon Missile Systems, told IHS Jane's , on 26 February.

"It is a very specialised industrial supplier base, so there is clear interest from a strategic sense [to] maintain this kind of industrial capability. It also parallels the increasing international interest in Excalibur," he said.

"Excalibur is a precision-guided, extended-range projectile that uses GPS guidance to provide accurate, first-round effects capability in any environment. Excalibur's level of precision creates a major reduction in the time, cost and logistical burden associated with using other artillery munitions," according to Raytheon.

The US Army has a plan for upgrading Excalibur, which could include addressing any concerns about the GPS guidance capability.

"The army is aware of evolving GPS threats throughout the world. While the Excalibur projectile's performance is extremely good against the required threats, there is an opportunity to further improve the robustness of the design against potential future threats," Audra E Calloway, Picatinny Arsenal spokesperson, told IHS Jane's on 29 February.

"Excalibur was designed for upgradability during its life cycle and the army is planning to update the projectiles in stock and any future production to maintain its superior performance into the future," she said.

However, the army's budget documents show no planned funding for Excalibur beyond fiscal year (FY) 2017. According to Calloway, the army budgets Excalibur on a year-to-year basis.

US Army asks for more funding to re-float runaway aerostat

Daniel Wasserbly, Washington, DC - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
08 March 2016




The US Army has asked Congress to shift USD27.2 million to continue testing a troubled aerostat surveillance system near the National Capital Region.

On 28 October 2015, in the middle of a three-year demonstration of Raytheon's Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Defense Elevated Netted Sensor System (JLENS), one of two 74 m aerostats became untethered from its station in Maryland, sailed away, and eventually crashed into the Pennsylvania countryside.

The programme's funding was then reduced by Congress in fiscal year (FY) 2016 budget legislation as a result of the incident. Lawmakers will have to approve or deny the army's reprogramming request, which is dated 1 March and was viewed by IHS Jane's on 8 March.

The document stated that a Failure Review Board identified "the causal factor and the required corrections" for the JLENS demonstration to continue. Repairing the damaged aerostat would cost USD4 million, mitigation and training "to prevent a similar incident" would cost USD2.2 million, and continuing the demonstration would cost USD21 million.

To pay for JLENS, the army would shift funding from several accounts, but the largest move would take USD11.6 million from the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) programme, dropping JLTV's USD45.7 million appropriated in FY 2015 for system development and demonstration down to USD34.1 million.

Those JLTV funds - residing in the research, development, test, and evaluation budget - "are available due to delayed award based on protest", the request said, referring to Lockheed Martin's protest of an August 2015 contract award to Oshkosh Defense. That protest has since been dropped, but the programme was set back several months.

Un militaire américain tué dans le nord de l’Irak


Posté dans Moyen-Orient, Opérations par Laurent Lagneau Le 19-03-2016


Il ne faut pas croire que déployer des conseillers militaires auprès des forces irakiennes n’est pas sans risques. Un sous-officier des forces spéciales canadiennes avait ainsi perdu la vie, en mars 2015, lors d’un accrochage avec les jihadistes de Daesh (État islamique ou Daesh).

Près d’un an plus tard, c’est un militaire américain affecté à la base de Makhmur, à 70 km au sud-est de Mossoul, fief de Daesh, qui a perdu la vie lors d’une attaque à la roquette.

L’annonce de la mort de ce soldat avait été faite en début d’après-midi par le commandement de la coalition anti-Daesh (CJTF, Combined Joint Task Force), via un communiqué évoquant « une action ennemie ». Ce n’est que plus tard que la nationalité du militaire tué a été précisée par un responsable militaire américain.

Ce dernier, rapporte CNN, a également affirmé qu’un « petit nombre » de militaires américains ont été blessés lors de cette attaque.

Il s’agit du second militaire américain à perdre la vie en Irak lors d’une action de combat contre les jihadistes, le premier ayant été le sergent-chef Joshua Wheeler, de la Delta Force (forces spéciales de US Army), au cours d’une opération menée en soutien des forces kurdes, orès de la ville de Hawija.

Cyber effects felt at tactical level in US Army training

Huw Williams, London - IHS Jane's International Defence Review
17 March 2016


The US Army is continuing to toll out the integration of cyber attacks in large-scale rotations as the service looks to improve the cyber element of its training and ultimately help inform doctrine in this area.

During a January rotation at the National Training Center (NTC) at Fort Irwin, California, elements of the 2nd Stryker Brigade Combat Team (SBCT) experienced the effects of offensive cyber capabilities at the tactical level, capabilities which were employed against them by a specialist opposing force.

The inclusion of the offensive cyber element at the tactical level is part of the US Army's Cyber Support to Corps and Below pilot programme.

The format of the scenario enabled the effects of successful cyber attacks to be implemented during the training, with the exercise staff able to actively control the impact on the 2nd Stryker Brigade's operational effectiveness. However, the scenario stopped short of letting the effects play out freely.

"The inclusion of WiFi access points in the networked cities scattered across the training area replicated the internet infrastructure that commanders face today," a US Army representative told IHS Jane's , "The exercise internet included enemy sympathisers reporting on friendly forces' positions and movements. These updates to the exercise environment presented the friendly commander with additional dilemmas," they added.

Comparing the ability for the Commander of the Operations Group's (COG's) ability to control the intensity of cyber attacks to that of a thermostat, the representative explained that "the COG assesses the training unit's comfort level and adjusts the heat by adding or subtracting dilemmas … the decision to play out or not play out the cyber attacks is reserved for the COG."

The exercise's infrastructure included the replication of a real-world communications network provider that covered a number of the training villages. OPFOR and other simulated actors were able to use this network to replicate a real-world communications environment, that included everyday traffic and conversations that assisted the OPFOR in its actions.

Une brigade blindée américaine déployée en permanence en Europe de l'Est dès février 2017 (Pentagone)


AFP 30/03/2016


Les Etats-Unis auront une brigade blindée déployée en permanence, par rotation en Europe de l'Est dès février 2017, dans le cadre de leurs efforts pour dissuader une éventuelle agression russe, a indiqué mercredi le Pentagone.

"Les rotations seront sans interruption, permettant une présence blindée continuelle et une amélioration de l'entraînement et des exercices avec les alliés" de l'Otan, a indiqué Laura Seal, une porte-parole du Pentagone.
Il y aura "une présence continue en Europe de l'Est d'une brigade blindée", a-t-elle souligné.

Le Pentagone et l'Otan avaient déjà évoqué le déploiement par rotation de cette brigade blindée en Europe orientale, sans donner de calendrier précis. Washington a annoncé en février sa volonté de quadrupler en 2017, à hauteur de 3,4 milliards de dollars, les dépenses destinées à muscler la présence militaire américaine en Europe.

Avec cette brigade blindée (4.200 soldats équipés notamment de chars et de véhicules blindés), l'armée de terre américaine disposera en permanence de trois brigades de combat en Europe.
En cas de conflit, ces trois brigades, plus de l'équipement stocké préventivement sur place pourront constituer rapidement une division complète, selon les plans du Pentagone.
Tous services confondus, l'armée américaine compte en permanence 62.000 soldats en Europe.

Depuis le printemps 2014, l'Otan a pris toute une série de mesures pour rassurer les pays alliés d'Europe de l'Est, comme l'ouverture de centres logistiques, le prépositionnement de matériel, l'envoi d'avions de chasse dans les pays baltes ou le déploiement de davantage de navires en mer Baltique et en mer Noire.
Moscou met régulièrement en garde contre le "stationnement permanent" de forces de combat alliées substantielles à sa frontière, qu'elle considère comme contraire à l'Acte fondateur Otan-Russie, signé en 1997.

U.S. Picatinny Arsenal engineers have been working to create a longer, newly modified M777A2 howitzer under the project name of M777ER that has the potential to double the system’s current artillery range. The modification adds six feet (1.8 m) to the cannon and less than 1,000 pounds (450 kg) to the overall system. A mobility demonstration is the first step to determine if the howitzer can be modified for extended range, or if a new system is required.

US Army Takes Next Step To Develop Sensor To See Through Fog of War

Defense News 4:33 p.m. EDT March 31, 2016




WASHINGTON — The Army has taken a critical step in developing a next generation sensor to help US ground forces see through the fog of war.

The service has awarded contracts to Raytheon and DRS Technologies to develop the 3rd Generation Forward Looking Infrared (3GEN FLIR) in the engineering and manufacturing development phase of the program.

If all options are exercised the contract value for 96 3GEN FLIR B-Kits is $154.4 million.

Raytheon and DRS first announced their partnership for the 3GEN FLIR competition at the Association of the US Army’s Global Force Symposium in 2015.

“With an asymmetric battlefield, being able to ID your target at even greater ranges provides our commanders additional time to both understand and shape the battlefield to their advantage,” Lt. Col. Scott Madore, product manager for ground sensors with the Program Executive Office for Intelligence, Electronic Warfare and Sensors, told reporters Thursday. “It allows our soldiers to detect, recognize and identify those enemy targets outside of threat ammunition ranges.”

And the 3GEN FLIR will do just that; detecting what’s out there, identifying what it is -- like a tank -- and then determining whether it belongs to a friend or foe.

The next generation FLIR will make identifications more quickly, clearly and confidently through advanced technology; combining a mid-wave and a long-wave band, which allows forces to see through fog, dust, snow or at night and also allows them to see better in a clear environment, Col. Anthony Sanchez, Terrestrial Sensors project manager, explained.

An operator will be able to switch between mid-wave and long-wave bands and will have the option to see what’s going on through four different fields of view, Sanchez added.

The plan is to outfit M1 Abrams tanks and Bradley Fighting Vehicles with the new FLIR, which amounts to about 8,300 FLIR B-Kits for 4,150 vehicles, Madore said. The 3GEN FLIR will also go on the Long Range Advanced Scout Surveillance System (LRAS3).

The Army plans to conduct its preliminary design review in September and will follow with a critical design review in the summer of 2017. The service plans to reach a low rate initial production decision in fiscal 2022 and full rate production in the 2024 timeframe.

Both Raytheon and DRS have “proven track records” working together on the 2nd Generation FLIR system, Madore said.

But there’s still some major technical components to develop further, namely the Dewar Cooler Bench (DCB), which collects the thermal radiation and creates the FLIR image, Madore added.

While Raytheon is the prime contractor for the B-Kits, Raytheon and DRS are separately designing DCBs in the EMD phase.

The Army will decide when it reaches the next milestone decision whether to move both DRS and Raytheon forward to produce DCBs or select just one to continue, Madore added. That decision will be based on risk and the budget environment in the mid-2020s, “but there is a possibility post-Milestone C that we would go to a single contractor,” he said.

Heckler & Koch to build new US Army sniper rifle

Daniel Wasserbly, Washington, DC - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
06 April 2016

US Army - Page 36 Army410



Heckler & Koch has been awarded the US Army's Compact Semi-Automatic Sniper System (CSASS) with a potential USD44.5 million initial contract, according to a 1 April announcement.

The German company's US subsidiary bested seven other bids for the work, understood to be with its Heckler & Koch G28 (Gewehr-28) Designated Marksman Rifle, meant to supplement the army's 7.62 mm M110 Semi-Automatic Sniper System (SASS) fleet.

Under the deal the army could order up to 3,643 CSASS units, after initial qualification and operational testing on 30 CSASS units.

According to the programme's February 2014 presolicitation notice, the army wanted enough CSASSs "to match the current M110 Army Acquisition Objective" of no more than 3,643.

"The CSASS will more effectively execute a broad spectrum of missions" than the M110, that notice said. "The CSASS will provide the following upgrades: improved reliability, improved accuracy, and improved ergonomics; reduced weight and length; advanced coatings; improved optics; reduced felt recoil; enhanced suppressor performance; enhanced modular rail capabilities; an improved bipod, trigger, pistol grip, and butt-stock."

According to Jane's Infantry Weapons , the Heckler & Koch G28 is a development of the civilian MR308 competition rifle (also known as the Distinguished Match Rifle - DMR762). The G28 is in service with the German Bundeswehr.

US Army to recommend force structure changes to Pentagon, Congress

Daniel Wasserbly, Washington, DC - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
07 April 2016



The US Army plans to soon officially weigh in with its own recommendations based on a congressionally mandated report on the service's future structure.

The National Commission on the Future of the Army (NCFA) was established by the fiscal year 2015 (FY 2015) National Defense Authorization Act to study army force structure decisions, including a controversial Aviation Restructure Initiative (ARI) that would transfer all Boeing AH-64 Apache attack helicopters from the Army National Guard to the army's active-duty force.

The NCFA sent its report to Congress on 28 January, and the service has since digested the document and will make recommendations to lawmakers soon, Army Chief of Staff General Mark Milley told the Senate on 7 April.

"What we've done is a very rigorous study of the 63 recommendations [in NFCA's report]; right now more or less about 50 or so we think are achievable at relatively little or no cost, or we've already started doing them," Gen Milley said.

"There's one that we absolutely disagree with ... and I think it is nine others or ten others that do incur some or significant cost in terms of dollars, and we're analysing that," he added, without mentioning specific issues.

On 15 April the army plans to send Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter its recommendations, and those are to be signed by Gen Milley as well as the chiefs of the Army National Guard and Army Reserve, who have been the main opponents of the army's restructuring plans - specifically the ARI.

Among other things, the NCFA's January report concluded that the controversial ARI "is a well-crafted plan" but would result "in a lack of strategic depth, providing for no wartime surge capability in the Army National Guard". Accordingly, the commission recommended the army maintain 24 manned Apache battalions but keep 20 in the active component, and four in the guard.

US Army to develop 3-D full-anatomy avatar of soldiers


US Army - Page 36 Army610


The US Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine (USARIEM) is developing a computer programme to create full-body, complete-anatomy avatars of soldiers.

The software is intended to create a 3-D full-anatomy avatar of individual soldiers irrespective of gender, size and shape.

So far, the first-generation avatar project has developed a total of 250 male avatars for evaluation purposes.

Mathematical modeller closely associated with the USARIEM Project said Gary Zientara said: "This strategy has the possibility to create a large library of avatars, indeed, an online avatar 'army' available for research use, and, as importantly, can provide individualised avatars representing uniquely specialised members of special units.

"Creating avatar models with this software enables individualised physiological modelling where an individual soldier's avatar can be clothed and moved through different postures and positions in order to be able to test angles of vulnerability and eventually even exercise and test physiological responses in any climatic environment."

The computer programme has been developed using body surface-scanning technology provided by the Anthropometry Team and Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Center (NSRDEC).

The project is expected to assist the US military in carrying out easier and safer simulations by minimising the involvement of human participants.

3GEN FLIR takes the US Army a step closer to 'owning the night'

Geoff Fein, Washington, DC - IHS Jane's International Defence Review
12 April 2016





The US Army has awarded Raytheon and DRS Technologies contracts for the engineering and manufacturing development (EMD) phase of the Third Generation Forward Looking Infrared (3GEN FLIR) for vehicles.

The effort is seeking to leverage applicable industry- and government-funded improvements in lighter-weight materials and reduced power consumption in 3GEN FLIR. These will be integrated into combat vehicle sights for reconnaissance, surveillance, and target acquisition and will enable sensor operators to detect, recognise, and identify enemy targets with increased clarity and at significantly longer ranges, according to the US Army project manager for terrestrial sensors (PM TS).

The army is seeking to replace the existing legacy 2nd Gen FLIR B-Kit components with a 3GEN FLIR B-Kit that includes high-definition, dual-band (mid-wave infrared/long-wave infrared [MWIR/LWIR]) focal plane array (FPA), optics, electronics, and an integrated Dewar cooler assembly (IDCA) that collects the thermal radiation and creates the FLIR image, Lieutenant Colonel Scott Madore, product manager for ground sensors, told IHS Jane's on 11 April.
