L’incident de l’USS Taylor a eu lieu le 12 février mais n’a été révélé que tout récemment, l’US Navy expliquant que le problème n’a été identifié qu’a posteriori. La frégate de type O.H. Perry, (3 000 tonnes de déplacement, 138 mètres de long, 7,50 mètres de tirant d’eau) est l’un des deux navires américains, avec l’USS Mount Whitney, dépêchés depuis un peu avant l’ouverture des jeux olympiques d’hiver de Sotchi, pour participer à la protection des jeux contre d’éventuelles menaces terroristes et assurer une évacuation de ressortissants américains en cas de besoin.

Il avait rallié le port de Samsun, à 240 milles au sud-ouest de Sotchi pour ravitaillement. L’inspection de la coque n’a révélé aucun dommage, mais les hélices sont abîmées. Depuis lors, le navire n’a pas quitté Samsun. Ce navire effectue actuellement son dernier déploiement car il doit être retiré du service en 2015.

US Defense budget preview: LCS number limited to 32, US Navy to study alternatives & modifications

US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel’s budget preview held yesterday set the stage for the administration’s fiscal 2015 budget rollout and announced that the number of Littoral Combat Ships would be limited to 32 units. The Defense Secretary asked the US Navy to start studying possible alternatives including a completely new design, existing ship designs, and a modified LCS.

US Navy - Page 13 Lockheed_Martin_Multi-Mission_Combatant_details_Euronaval_2012_news
Lockheed Martin's Multi-Mission Combatant as shown during Euronaval 2012. Pitched as the export variant of the LCS, it is essentially an LCS design fitted with extra sensors and weapons which turns it into a potent Frigate-like multirole surface combatant. (On this scale model it is fitted with AEGIS, Thales Sonar, MK41 VLS, Oto Melara 76mm, Harpoon anti-ship missiles and Millenium 35mm guns)

Excerpt from FY15 Budget Preview as Delivered by Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, Pentagon Press Briefing Room, Monday, February 24, 2014:

Overall, the Navy’s fleet will be significantly modernized under our plan, which continues buying two destroyers and two attack submarines per year, as well as one additional Afloat Staging Base. We have preserved the fleet’s modernization programs and provided for increases in ship inventory over the next five years.

Regarding the Navy’s Littoral Combat Ship, I am concerned that the Navy is relying too heavily on the LCS to achieve its long-term goals for ship numbers. Therefore, no new contract negotiations beyond 32 ships will go forward. With this decision, the LCS line will continue beyond our five-year budget plan with no interruptions.

The LCS was designed to perform certain missions – such as mine sweeping and anti-submarine warfare – in a relatively permissive environment. But we need to closely examine whether the LCS has the protection and firepower to survive against a more advanced military adversary and emerging new technologies, especially in the Asia Pacific. If we were to build out the LCS program to 52 ships, as previously planned, it would represent one-sixth of our future 300-ship Navy. Given continued fiscal constraints, we must direct shipbuilding resources toward platforms that can operate in every region and along the full spectrum of conflict.

Additionally, at my direction, the Navy will submit alternative proposals to procure a capable and lethal small surface combatant, consistent with the capabilities of a frigate. I’ve directed the Navy to consider a completely new design, existing ship designs, and a modified LCS. These proposals are due to me later this year in time to inform next year’s budget submission.

If sequestration spending levels return in 2016 and beyond, we will be forced into much tougher decisions on the Navy surface fleet. Six additional ships would have to be laid up, and we would have to slow the rate at which we buy destroyers. The net result of sequestration-level cuts would be ten fewer large surface combatant ships in the Navy’s operational inventory by 2023. Under sequestration spending levels, the Navy would also halt procurement of the carrier variant of the Joint Strike Fighter for two years.

Boeing Receives $2.4 Billion Contract for 16 P-8A Poseidon Aircraft

US Navy orders 1st full-rate production lot

SEATTLE, Feb. 26, 2014 -- Boeing's [NYSE: BA] P-8A Poseidon program will enter full production, following a $2.4 billion contract award from the U.S. Navy for 16 additional aircraft that will bolster maritime patrol capabilities.

The order, which will take the total fleet to 53, marks a transition from preliminary low-rate production.

Boeing has delivered 13 P-8As to the Navy, which deployed its first patrol squadron to Kadena, Japan in December 2013 and has been conducting operational missions since then.

"This milestone is a testament to the incredible effort and dedication of the team to deliver the P-8A to the fleet as planned," Navy P-8A program manager Capt. Scott Dillon said. "The future of the Maritime Patrol and Reconnaissance community has begun to make history with the P-8As already delivered to the fleet. These full-rate production aircraft will give us the opportunity to deliver the best system through a cost-effective procurement contract."

Based on Boeing's Next-Generation 737-800 commercial airplane, the P-8A will enhance the service's anti-submarine, anti-surface warfare and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities. Overall, the Navy plans to purchase 117 P-8As to replace its P-3 fleet.

"This contract reflects the success of the program and enables us to continue delivering an advanced, cost-effective maritime patrol aircraft to the Navy," added Rick Heerdt, Boeing vice president and P-8 program manager. "We delivered eight P-8s, all on or ahead of schedule in 2013, and we intend to keep that streak going in 2014."

Boeing assembles the P-8A aircraft in the same facility where it builds all its 737 aircraft. The Poseidon team uses a first-in-industry in-line production process that draws on Boeing's Next-Generation 737 system and has resulted in cost and schedule savings.

Boeing's industry team includes CFM International, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon, Spirit AeroSystems, BAE Systems and GE Aviation.

A unit of The Boeing Company, Boeing Defense, Space & Security is one of the world's largest defense, space and security businesses specializing in innovative and capabilities-driven customer solutions, and the world's largest and most versatile manufacturer of military aircraft. Headquartered in St. Louis, Boeing Defense, Space & Security is a $33 billion business with 58,000 employees worldwide. Follow us on Twitter: @BoeingDefense.

Burke class Destroyer USS John Paul Jones Demonstrates Next Generation Warfighting Capability


Sailors assigned to the Arleigh-Burke class guided-missile destroyer USS John Paul Jones (DDG 53) successfully completed two live-fire tests of the Aegis Weapons System (AWS) Feb. 8. The first target was launched from Naval Air Station Point Mugu. John Paul Jones used its onboard AN/SPY-1D (MOD) radar to engage the target, demonstrating the ability of the U.S. Navy's AWS to detect, track and fire upon a target simulating a high speed cruise missile.

John Paul Jones, equipped with the latest-generation Aegis Baseline 9C weapon system, developed a fire control solution and launched the Standard Missile-2 (SM-2), which resulted in the successful destruction of an AQM-37C target. In a later test, the ship defended itself against the same type of target while simultaneously engaging a simulated ballistic missile threat.

John Paul Jones recently underwent combat systems modernization as part of the congressionally approved fiscal 2006 Defense Appropriations Act. John Paul Jones is the first DDG to receive the latest commercial off the shelf (COTS) open architecture computing system, transmitter upgrades and a multi-mission signal processor. These upgrades provide the backbone for the new Baseline 9C system, which will soon be implemented throughout the surface fleet.

During the training evolution all systems performed as expected. Program officials will conduct an extensive assessment and evaluation based upon data collected from the tests.

"Serving as the commanding officer of the USS John Paul Jones is an immense honor. Not only do I work with the most advanced surface combat system around, but I do so with some of the most dedicated and capable men and women in the business," said Cmdr. Andrew Thomson.

John Paul Jones will continue to conduct operations and training within 3rd Fleet's 50 million square-mile area of responsibility.

U.S. 3rd Fleet leads naval forces in the Eastern Pacific from the West Coast of North America to the international date line.

Raytheon, U.S. Navy test Tomahawk Block IV's latest communications upgrades

light test validates cruise missile's evolutionary technology

TUCSON, Ariz., Feb. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) and the U.S. Navy have successfully tested communications advancements to the Tomahawk Block IV cruise missile.

During a Feb. 19 flight test, a Raytheon-built Tomahawk Block IV missile, launched from the USS Sterett, flew a preprogrammed route while receiving updates from a simulated maritime operations center and from advanced off-board sensors updating the missile's target location. Throughout the flight, the missile maintained communications with all the command and control assets and provided updates on its location before hitting the target.

"Working closely with our U.S. Navy partner, we continue to modernize Tomahawk to stay ahead of the escalating threat," said Roy Donelson, Raytheon Tomahawk program director. "By making key changes to the way the operators use sensors and communications assets, we can now provide the fleet with even more dynamic targeting capabilities for Tomahawk."

The flight test further highlighted the importance of Tomahawk's loitering capability. As targets change in the battlespace, the missile can be redirected to a new aim point.

"Tomahawk's long range gives our commanders increased flexibility in theatre," said Capt. Joe Mauser, U.S. Navy Tomahawk program manager. "When our ships and submarines are within 100 miles of a coastline, Tomahawks can fly deep inland and strike from a direction the enemy might not suspect."

This latest flight test once again validated the missile's capability to engage challenging targets. Raytheon and the Navy continue to modernize Tomahawk for service beyond the next two decades

Military Pilot Dies in Fighter Jet Crash in Nevada

A day after a fighter jet went down during a training exercise in western Nevada, the Navy said late Sunday that the military pilot had been killed in the crash.

It took rescue crews several hours to reach the site of Saturday's crash on a Navy range training complex east of Naval Air Station Fallon because of a snow storm and mountainous, remote terrain. But there was no immediate word released about the pilot.

U.S. Pacific Fleet said officials determined the pilot's status on Sunday, according to Naval Air Force spokeswoman Lt. Reagan Lauritzen.

The pilot's name was being withheld pending notification of next of kin.

The F/A-18C, a U.S. Marine jet on loan to the Naval Strike and Air Warfare Center, went down about 70 miles east of Naval Air Station Fallon, she said.

When crews arriving at the crash site they found that the aircraft was a total loss.

The Navy reported incorrectly on Saturday that the jet was one of its Hornets.

The Navy said that there were no reports of any other injuries or damage as a result of the crash, and the jet was not carrying any weapons or munitions on the training flight.

"We are here today to not only honor and pay tribute to the heroes of United Flight 93, but also to celebrate the commissioning of this great ship USS Somerset," said Dearborn. "Somerset will leave a legacy that will never be forgotten by those wishing to do harm to this country. A ship is but a steel vessel, it is the crew that brings the ship to life. USS Somerset is truly a fine warship and the crew that mans her, is second to none."

At the conclusion of the remarks, Somerset's ship sponsor, Mrs. Mary Jo Myers, the wife of former Joint Chiefs of Staff retired Air Force Gen. Richard Myers, gave the time-honored command to "man our ship and bring her to life!"

"[Flight 93 passengers and crew members] exemplified such courage and bravery that day as they sacrificed themselves to protect others and to rally our nation they were indeed the first warriors in this war on terrorism," said Myers. "Today we come together as families, but mostly as Americans to celebrate and witness this momentous occasion and wish the USS Somerset and her crew Godspeed."

The commissioning was the culmination of a week-long celebration in Philadelphia honoring the ship, her crew and the legacy of the 40 passengers and crew member of United Airlines of Flight 93. The ship will be homeported in San Diego.

US Navy Budget Takes Bite Out of Aircraft, Weapons


WASHINGTON — Most of the US Navy’s aviation programs take significant hits in the 2015 budget, including the P-8A Poseidon, F-35C Joint Strike Fighter, and MH-60R helicopter, and plans to buy the MQ-8C Fire Scout unmanned shipboard aircraft have been shelved for now.
The budget also takes a big bite out of weapons procurement, notably the elimination of Tactical Tomahawk cruise missile procurement after this year.
Shipbuilding buys were only slightly reduced, with one Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) being taken out of the budget as the buying plan shifts from either four or two ships per year to three.
Several key decisions affecting the budget have yet to be made, most notably the question of eliminating an aircraft carrier and a carrier air wing, a judgment being left to next year. Decisions of how to handle the temporary reduction of 11 cruisers and three amphibious ships also have yet to be signed off on, and the Navy has yet to explain its new process for counting Battle Force ships, which affects fleet size.
It is also not clear what sort of aircraft and weapon requests will appear in the Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO) request, the supplemental war funding bill to be submitted later this year, nor in the $26 billion Opportunity Growth and Security Initiative, a list of unfunded programs the Obama administration will submit to Congress.
The OCO request “will include readiness funding to improve these metrics,” said Rear Adm. William Lescher, the Navy’s budget director, at a Tuesday Pentagon press conference to discuss the budget.
Overall, the Navy’s $148 billion topline base budget request is $7.8 billion below last year’s figure of $155.8 billion.
Procurement drops $5.1 billion to $38.4 billion; operations and maintenance down $1.7 billion to $46.8 billion; military personnel spending down $400 million to $45 billion; infrastructure down $800 million — nearly a quarter — to $1.5 billion. Only research and development funding showed an increase, up $300 million to $16.3 billion, driven by a $400 million increase in system development and demonstration funding, a category that includes the new executive helicopter program.
The Navy is asking for $3.5 billion less in shipbuilding funds, dropping from last year’s $17.9 billion to $14.4 billion. New aircraft funding drops $1.2 billion to $13.1 billion; weapons procurement is up $100 million to $3.2 billion; ammunition rises $200 million to $800 million; Marine Corps procurement drops $300 million to $1 billion.
Active-duty Marine Corps personnel strength is reduced from 190,200 to 182,700, a planned reduction. Navy active-duty personnel hold at 323,600, with a reduction of 1,800 in Reserve end strength.
Readiness accounts hold mostly steady or show slight increases, but base support funding drops $700 million.
The shipbuilding program continues with two submarines and two destroyers per year. Details of the switch from four or two ships per year to three in the LCS program, Lescher said, still are being worked out — reflective of the top-level Pentagon decision taken only weeks ago to cap buys of current LCS designs at 32 ships and examine an alternative design or modifications the two existing designs.
Plans to begin procurement of Flight III Arleigh Burke-class destroyers fitted with the new air missile defense radar in 2016 remain in place, Lescher said, holding to previous schemes. The LHA(R) big-deck assault ship remains in 2017, but the LX(R) amphibious ship has been pushed back a year, from 2019 to 2020. The new T-AO(X) fleet oiler replacement also remains in 2016.
A fifth Mobile Landing Platform/Afloat Staging Ship has been added to the overall plan, appearing in 2017.
The Navy increased buys of the Ship-To-Shore connector, a replacement for existing LCAC air-cushioned landing craft, asking for 31 ships through 2019, up from last year’s 17 over 2015-2018.
The aircraft accounts show more severe reductions. While procurement of the short-takeoff or vertical launch F-35B Joint Strike Fighter for the Marine Corps holds at previous levels, buys for the F-35C carrier variant were slashed, dropping from last year’s plan to buy 49 from 2015 to 2018 to 20.
Buys of the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye dropped only slightly, but the P-8A Poseidon multi-mission maritime aircraft fell from 56 in 2015-2018 to 49.
MV-22 Osprey tilt rotor buys hold steady, but last year’s plan to buy 29 MH-60R helicopters each in 2015 and 2016 saw all of 2016’s aircraft eliminated.
Procurement of the MQ-4 Triton broad-area maritime surveillance unmanned aircraft was pushed back a year “to account for a delay in development,” Lescher said. Buys of 17 MQ-8C Fire Scout unmanned helicopters — a mainstay of the LCS program — were stricken.
“The department is very committed to unmanned aircraft,” Lescher said when asked about the Fire Scouts. “In prior years there was a thought the aircraft would be used for special operations forces,” he added, but now, through the global force management system, those needs will be filled by aircraft operating from nearby LCSs.
Weapons procurement showed striking reductions from last year’s plans. Then, the Navy planned to buy 980 Tactical Tomahawks, the primary cruise missile in use throughout the fleet. The new plan shows only 100 missiles in 2015 and none thereafter.
The reduction reflects shifting investment to a new next-generation land attack weapon, said Lt. Caroline Hutcheson, a Navy spokeswoman at the Pentagon, who also noted that the current inventory of Block IV Tactical Tomahawks exceeds combat requirements. A recertification line for existing missiles will be established to retain effectiveness of current TacToms, she added.
Buys of Standard SM-6, Rolling Airframe and Evolved Sea Sparrow missiles, as well as the Mk 48 heavyweight torpedo and Mk 54 lightweight torpedo were also reduced, and procurement of the advanced medium-range air-to-air missile is suspended in 2015. Purchases of the Hellfire air-to-ground missile and the advanced JSOW-C version of the Joint Standoff Weapon were dramatically reduced — Hellfire from 1,519 from 2015-2018 to zero; JSOW-C from 1,799 over the same period to 400.
Appearing for the first time in the near-term budget, however, is the LCS Surface-to-Surface Missile Module, a sorely-needed effort to develop a new missile for the littoral ships.

Navy Zeroes Out Fire Scout Buy, Future of Program Unclear

US Navy - Page 13 FirescoutC


The Navy has abandoned its plans to buy 17 additional Northrop Grumman Fire Scout rotary wing unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for the next five years as part of its Fiscal Year 2015 budget submission.
The submission zeroed out purchases of the helicopter UAVs over the Future Years Defense Plan (FYPD) — the five-year planning period that extends to fiscal year 2019. In its Fiscal Year 2014 FYDP the service indicated it would buy close to 17 MQ-8C Fire Scouts from 2014 to 2018 — primarily for the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) mission packages.
So far the Navy has purchased 28 of the legacy MQ-8B Fire Scouts and paid for 14 of the larger MQ-8C variants — including two demonstration airframes currently being tested by the Navy in California.
The decision to zero out the program follows an anticipated reduction in the mission packages for the LCS after Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel announced the cap of the current hulls at 32 from 52.
Northrop Grumman officials told USNI News, “we are working closely with the U.S. Navy to meet their current operational needs and path forward for the Fire Scout program.”
The Navy’s budget, ”deferred MQ-8 air vehicle procurements across the FYDP to better align with LCS deliveries,” said Capt. Patrick Smith, Fire Scout program manager for Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR).
The LCS cap will likely lead to a reduction in the original 64 mission packages planned for the program but It’s still unclear how the Navy will restructure the mission module packages in light of the caps.
Service leaders are meeting to discuss the future of the program in the coming weeks, service officials told USNI News.
The Navy had planned for 24 surface warfare (SuW) mission package for LCS that would field up to three MQ-8Bs or one MQ-8C.

US Navy - Page 13 Web_110930-N-JQ696-401

MQ-8B Fire Scouts are planned to be part of the SuW mission package for this year’s upcoming deployment of USS Fort Worth (LCS-3) to Singapore.
Instead of buying new airframes the service will instead invest in improvements in the existing fleet.
“Resourced in the FYDP procurement budget are ground control stations, ancillary equipment, training equipment, support equipment, technical support, and logistics which are critically needed to outfit the ships and train the aviation detachments for LCS,” Smith said in the statement from NAVAIR.
The reduction also seemingly stops the procurement of Fire Scouts for special operations forces.
“There was in prior years a specific notion of procuring MQ8s specifically dedicated to [special operations forces],” said Rear Adm. William Lescher, deputy assistant secretary of the Navy for budget during the Tuesday briefing at the Pentagon.
Instead SOF will request units from the Navy as needed, Lescher said.
The reduction in the number of aircrafts could also have other implications for the service.
When the Navy eliminated the of Lockheed Martin Remote Multi-Mission Vehicle (RMMV) from planned LCS anti-submarine warfare packages (a cut from 108 units to 54) in 2010, the move triggered a so-called Nunn-McCurdy breach — a US law that requires military equipment cost increases of 25 percent above the original estimate to undergo a review and certification process.

Le procès du cerveau présumé de l'attentat contre l'USS Cole fixé au 4 décembre
   
WASHINGTON, 06 mars 2014 (AFP) -

Le procès du cerveau présumé de l'attentat contre le navire américain USS Cole, le Saoudien Abd al-Rahim al-Nachiri, débutera le 4 décembre, a ordonné le juge du tribunal militaire de Guantanamo, dans une décision publiée jeudi.

Les débats au fond, initialement programmés pour septembre, ont été repoussés au 4 décembre par le juge James Pohl, peut-on lire dans ce document daté du 26 février mais rendu public jeudi sur le site des tribunaux militaires.

Mis en accusation le 9 novembre 2011, Abd al-Rahim al-Nachiri encourt la peine de mort pour l'attentat contre le navire américain USS Cole, qui avait fait 17 morts en 2000 au Yémen, et pour celui contre le pétrolier français MV Limburg, dans lequel un marin bulgare avait été tué et 12 autres hommes blessés en 2002 à Aden.

Ce sera le premier cas de peine de mort jamais plaidé sur la base de Guantanamo et le premier procès à s'y tenir sous l'administration de Barack Obama, en dehors de deux plaiders coupables. Sur les 779 détenus passés à Guantanamo, ce sera le 9e homme à être jugé par la justice militaire depuis l'ouverture de la prison il y a 12 ans.

A l'instar des cinq accusés des attentats du 11 septembre 2001, M. Nachiri comparaît depuis plusieurs mois dans le cadre d'audiences préliminaires, destinées à fixer toutes les modalités et les témoignages avant l'ouverture du procès.

Le juge James Pohl vient notamment de refuser le témoignage demandé par la défense d'un ancien directeur de la CIA, Jose Rodriguez, sur les tortures que M. al-Nachiri dit avoir subies dans une prison secrète avant son incarcération à Guantanamo en 2006, selon un document distinct posté sur le site.

En outre, un compatriote de M. al-Nachiri, également détenu à Guantanamo, pourrait témoigner contre l'accusé en amont du procès.

Ahmed Mohammed Ahmed Haza Al Darbi a plaidé coupable le 20 février d'avoir planifié l'attentat contre le pétrolier Limburg. Même si elle n'a pas été explicitement mentionnée dans l'accord passé avec le gouvernement, sa déposition contre M. al-Nachiri est attendue en échange de sa libération anticipée et de son rapatriement en Arabie Saoudite.

U.S. Navy aims to put 22 Boeing fighters on 'unfunded' list - sources

(Reuters) - The U.S. Navy plans to add 22 Boeing electronic attack jets to a list of "unfunded" priorities requested by Congress, but the document must still be vetted by senior Pentagon officials, who have underscored their commitment to Lockheed Martin Corp's next-generation F-35 fighter jet, sources familiar with the matter told Reuters.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel told the military services in a memo on Thursday they could respond to the House Armed Services Committee's request, but said the lists should be coordinated with his office and that of General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, according to a defense official.

The defense official and multiple other sources spoke on Wednesday and Thursday on condition of anonymity because the unfunded priorities lists have not yet been formally submitted to Congress.

Given that shrinking budgets are leaving the services with myriad unmet needs, Hagel does not intend follow the lead of former Defense Secretary Robert Gates, who tried to block the lists from being sent to Capitol Hill, the official said.

"This is a different time. We've had to make tough choices, and budgets are coming down. Part of what we want to do is demonstrate to Congress that our military has needs that are not fulfilled by sequestration," the official said.

At the same time, the department's priorities were clearly outlined in its 2015 budget plan and the separate $26.4 billion "growth fund" set up by the White House, the official said.

And those priorities, said two of the sources, did not include more Boeing Co F/A-18 Super Hornets or EA-18G Growlers, which will end production in 2016 unless more orders come in.

The Navy did not seek funding for either plane in its budget, or in its part of the separate "growth" fund. But it plans to add 22 Growlers to its unfunded priorities list, said four sources familiar with the issue.

A Navy spokesman declined to comment, saying only that the service was still finalizing its unfunded priorities list.

The document also includes eight P-8A surveillance planes built by Boeing for $1.1 billion, and restores funding for continued operation of the USS George Washington carrier and its associated air wing, said one source familiar with the Navy list.

The document put the cost of the extra planes at $2.14 billion and said they would let the Navy expand each Growler squadron on a carrier to seven jets from five, offering more electronic attack capabilities for the joint force, the source said.

The document also referenced ongoing studies by the Navy and the Defense Department that pointed to increasing threats.

A second source said the Navy's request for more Growlers was likely to meet resistance from senior defense officials, given competing demands for resources, a strong commitment to the F-35, which includes a carrier-based model for the Navy, and a general shift away from single-purpose aircraft.

"There is no validated requirement," said the source.

Navy and senior U.S. defense officials have repeatedly said they have no plans to extend Boeing's F/A-18 and EA-18G production line in St. Louis, which is due to shut after 2016.

Boeing spokeswoman Karen Fincutter urged Congress to add funding for the Growlers to keep the production line going.

"The Super Hornet and Growler are the backbone of the Navy's carrier air wings today, and will be through at least 2040. If funding to extend production of those aircraft isn't provided, unique industrial capabilities will be lost and the U.S. will be solely dependent on one tactical aircraft manufacturer for years to come," she said.

Congress already added $75 million in funding for advanced procurement for 22 EA-18G jets to the Navy's fiscal 2014 budget, but those funds have not yet been released.

Congressional aides say lawmakers need evidence of the Navy's interest in extra Growlers to justify adding funding to the fiscal 2015 budget, but caution that finding $2 billion for 22 more EA-18G jets would mean cuts elsewhere.

"It means you have to slaughter somebody else's ox," said one aide who was not authorized to speak publicly.

Boeing has said it can slow production of the jets to around two planes a month without a big impact on pricing. It said it could stretch production into mid-2017, if the Navy agrees to a slower delivery rate of jets already on order.

That means Congress could fund about half the 22 Growlers and still allow the production line to keep running through 2017, said one source familiar with the matter.

House Armed Services Committee Chairman Buck McKeon last month asked the services, combatant commanders and National Guard to submit a list of programs that did not get included in the budget. He left the door open to a number of programs, asking for those needed to meet a "validated requirement" or other military priority, as well as items for which requirements emerged after the budget was drafted.

The sources said the Marine Corps was also expected to ask for six F-35 fighter jets as part of its unfunded priorities list. It plans to ask for one F-35 B-model jet, which can land like a helicopter, and five F-35 carrier models, to replace six Harrier jets destroyed in Afghanistan.

Perry-Class Frigate Retirements Accelerated for 2015

By RICHARD R. BURGESS, Managing Editor

ARLINTON, Va. — The Defense Department’s budget proposal for fiscal 2015 is speeding up the retirement of the service’s last Perry-class frigates (FFGs).

The Navy plans to decommission 10 frigates in 2015, seven of which will be the last ships in the Naval Reserve Force.

The Navy had planned to decommission four Reserve FFGs in 2015 and retire the remaining three by 2019.

The Navy’s 2015 budget document said the retirement of the seven Reserve FFGs was being accelerated “in order to maintain forward operations of well-trained and equipped forces in a prioritized but fiscally constrained environment.”

The retirement of the Perry class may not mean the end of frigates in the U.S. Navy. In his Feb. 24 briefing on 2015 budget priorities, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel directed the Navy to stop procurement of Littoral Combat Ships after 32 hulls and develop alternative proposals for a small surface combatant similar to a frigate.

These are the seventh and eighth ships fully funded for each contractor under its previously-awarded, fixed-price incentive "block buy" contract for the design and construction of up to 10 LCS Flight 0+ ships. The two block buy contracts provide for the acquisition of a total of up to 20 Littoral Combat Ships from fiscal year 2010 through fiscal year 2015, subject to availability of appropriations.

The amount of funds added under the block buy contract with Lockheed Martin Corporation for the fiscal year 2014 LCS ships is $699 million. The amount of funds added under the block buy contract with Austal USA for the fiscal year 2014 LCS ships is $684 million. The ships will be built at Fincantieri Marinette Marine Corporation in Marinette, Wis., and Austal USA in Mobile, Ala., respectively.

The prices for the fiscal year 2014 ships were determined based on the competitive, LCS dual block buy contracts that were awarded December 29, 2010.

The additional funding obligated is for the 17th – 20th ships in the LCS class. Presently, four LCS have delivered to the Navy. USS Freedom (LCS 1) concluded its first deployment in December 2013 and is currently at its homeport in San Diego. USS Independence (LCS 2) is undergoing Mine Counter-Measures developmental testing in San Diego. USS Fort Worth (LCS 3) is scheduled to begin initial operational test and evaluation of its surface warfare mission module in March, and Coronado (LCS 4) is scheduled to be commissioned April 5, 2014, in Coronado, Calif.

LCS is needed to fill critical, urgent warfighting requirements gaps that exist today. LCS is required to establish and maintain U.S. Navy dominance in the littorals and sea lines of communication choke points around the world.

General Dynamics NASSCO Delivers USNS John Glenn Mobile Landing Platform (MLP 2)

General Dynamics NASSCO today delivered the USNS John Glenn (MLP 2), the second ship of the Mobile Landing Platform (MLP) class, to the U.S. Navy. The ship is named after the Honorable John Glenn for his exceptional and decorated service as a U.S. Marine Corps pilot, astronaut and U.S. Senator. Construction of the USNS John Glenn began in April 2012.

Throughout the MLP program, NASSCO has incorporated more than 10,000 improvement ideas into its operations which contributed to controlling costs and delivering the MLP 2 on schedule with no open discrepancies. The 785-foot-long auxiliary ship will serve as a floating base for amphibious operations, and operate as a transfer point between large ships and small landing craft.

USS Donald Cook Begins First FDNF Patrol

ROTA, Spain (NNS) -- The forward-deployed Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Donald Cook (DDG 75) departed Naval Station Rota, Spain in support of maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts in the U.S. 6th Fleet area of operations, March 14.

Donald Cook is the first of four destroyers to be part of the Navy's Forward Deployed Naval Forces in Rota which is part of the Phased Adaptive Approach to protect European allies, partners, U.S. forces in the region, and the U.S. homeland against current and emerging ballistic missile threats.

"From theater security cooperation in the Mediterranean, to NATO exercises and training, to maritime security operations, this ship is capable of conducting prompt, sustained combat operations at sea in support of U.S. national policy," said Cmdr. Scott Jones, Donald Cook's commanding officer.

While on patrol in the U.S. 6th Fleet area of operations, Donald Cook will perform numerous missions, including NATO missile defense, maritime security operations, bilateral and multilateral training exercises.

U.S. 6th Fleet, headquartered in Naples, Italy, conducts a full range of maritime security operations and theater security cooperation missions in concert with coalition, joint, interagency, and other parties in order to advance security and stability in Europe and Africa.

U.S. aircraft carrier group in Mediterranean 'a few more days'

(Reuters) - The Pentagon said on Friday it would keep a U.S. aircraft carrier battle group in the Mediterranean Sea for several days longer than planned as part of the effort to reassure U.S. allies worried about the crisis in Ukraine.

Army Colonel Steven Warren, a Pentagon spokesman, said the carrier USS George H.W. Bush and its accompanying warships would remain in the region for "a few more days to do additional training and to enhance maritime capabilities."

"This is a few more days over what the original plan was," Warren said. "There's two reasons. One is to conduct these additional training opportunities, and frankly because a lot of what we're doing there now is an effort to reassure our allies."

Warren did not rule out the Bush remaining even longer in the Mediterranean, but said: "Right now she's scheduled to continue on her mission within the next couple of days."

The Pentagon has taken a number of steps to reassure allies over the crisis in Ukraine, which says Russian forces have occupied its Crimean peninsula, where Russia's Black Sea fleet is based.

Washington has bolstered its training with Poland's air force and will provide more aircraft for the NATO air policing mission in the Baltics.

Warren said six of the 12 F-16s ordered to Poland arrived on Thursday and the remaining six would arrive on Friday. A C-130 and a C-17 transport planes were due to land in Poland on Friday with supplies and 150 personnel for the training mission, which is due to begin next week once maintenance teams have arrived.

La marine américaine a abordé le pétrolier contrebandier libyen (Pentagone)
     
WASHINGTON, 17 mars 2014 (AFP) -

Les forces spéciales de la marine américaine ont pris le contrôle du pétrolier transportant du brut acheté illégalement aux rebelles libyens qui occupent les terminaux pétroliers de l'est, a annoncé lundi le Pentagone.

Personne n'a été blessé "lorsque les forces américaines, à la demande à la fois des gouvernements libyen et chypriote, ont abordé et pris le contrôle du pétrolier Morning Glory, un navire qui avait été capturé un peu plus tôt ce mois-ci par trois Libyens armés", a déclaré dans un communiqué le responsable du service de presse du Pentagone, l'amiral John Kirby.

L'opération a été approuvée par le président Barack Obama et a eu lieu peu après 02h00 GMT lundi, "dans les eaux internationales au sud-est de Chypre", précise le communiqué.

Le Morning Glory "transporte une cargaison de pétrole qui appartient à la compagnie d'Etat lybienne Compagnie pétrolière nationale. Le navire et sa cargaison avaient été obtenus illégalement dans le port d'al-Sedra", ajoute le Pentagone.

Le navire, piloté par un équipage de la marine américaine, va "bientôt être acheminé vers un port de Lybie".

Navy to Hold Contest for New Anti-Surface Missile


The Navy plans to hold a competition for an anti-ship missile that could be used from the air or ships and possibly submarines to beef up the service’s ability to take on surface threats, service officials told USNI News this week.
The Offensive Anti-Surface Warfare (OASuW)/Increment 2 anti-ship missile will follow an authorization earlier this year for an air-launched missile currently being developed by Defense Advanced Projects Research Agency.
Towards the effort, the service will update an existing analysis of alternatives for the new weapon to deal with, “the advanced 2024 threat.”
The analysis will be used to guide the Navy’s investments in Fiscal Year 2016 and beyond. Service officials did not specify a planned timeframe for the completion of the updated analysis or subsequent requests for proposals from industry.
“Surface and air-launched material solutions will be assessed,” the Navy said in a statement provided to USNI News.
The OASuW Increment 2 would be a follow-on to DARPA’s Long Range Anti-Ship Missile (LRASM), which is based on Lockheed Martin’s AGM-158B Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile-Extended Range.
The Pentagon authorized the Navy to put the LRASM into production for the OASuW/Increment 1 requirement on Feb. 3.
The Navy will complete the development, test and integration of the Increment 1 weapon onto the Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornet and the U.S. Air Force’s Rockwell International B-1B Lance strategic bomber.
Even though DARPA has been developing the LRASM as a weapon capable of being launched from the air or vertical missile launch tubes on the service’s ships, the Navy will use it strictly as an air-launched missile, Navy officials told USNI News on Thursday.
“Production of air-launched LRASM is planned to commence in FY 2017 to support employment of an early operational capability to both the Air Force and Navy,” Navy spokesman, Lt. Rob Myers, told USNI News in a statement.
The Pentagon was forced to embark on developing the LRASM as an urgent capability because the existing Harpoon missile does not have the range or survivability to defeat emerging surface threats.
The Navy has not prioritized defeating enemy warships at sea since the collapse of the Soviet Union.
The degradation of the Soviet fleet following the end of the Cold War ended the last major peer threat to American naval dominance until the Chinese People’s Liberation Army Navy began a rapid modernization program in the late 2000s.
Now the Navy is scrambling to counter what it sees as a rising threat.
But LRASM is merely a stopgap for the Navy until it can develop a more comprehensive solution in the form of the OASuW Increment 2—which will be used by aircraft, surface warships and possibly submarines.
In the last few months Navy officials have indicated the service needed to improve the offensive power of its current fleet.

US Navy Awards GD Bath Iron Works $643 Million Construction Contract for DDG 51 Class Destroyer


The U.S. Navy has awarded General Dynamics Bath Iron Works a contract valued at $642.5 million to construct an additional Arleigh Burke-class destroyer. The award brings the total number of ships to be constructed by Bath Iron Works under a multi-year procurement to five, and the total value of the contract to approximately $3.4 billion. General Dynamics Bath Iron Works is a business unit of General Dynamics.
US Navy - Page 13 Arleigh_Burke-class_guided-missile_destroyer_USS_Thomas_Hudner_DDG_116
There are currently two DDG 51 destroyers in production at Bath Iron Works, Rafael Peralta (DDG 115) and Thomas Hudner (DDG 116). The shipyard began fabrication on DDG 115 in November 2011, and delivery to the Navy is scheduled for 2016. Fabrication on DDG 116 began in November 2012, and that ship is scheduled to be delivered to the Navy in 2017.

Bath Iron Works is also building the three ships in the planned three-vessel Zumwalt-class of destroyers, Zumwalt (DDG 1000), Michael Monsoor (DDG 1001) and Lyndon Johnson (DDG 1002). All three ships are progressing in construction with the christening of Zumwalt (DDG 1000) scheduled for April 12, 2014, in Bath, Maine.

The Arleigh Burke-class destroyer is a multi-mission combatant that offers defense against a wide range of threats, including ballistic missiles. It operates in support of carrier battle groups, surface action groups, amphibious groups and replenishment groups, providing a complete array of anti-submarine (ASW), anti-air (AAW) and anti-surface (SuW) capabilities. Designed for survivability, the ships incorporate all-steel construction and have gas turbine propulsion. The combination of the ships’ AEGIS combat system, the Vertical Launching System, an advanced ASW system, two embarked SH-60 helicopters, advanced anti-aircraft missiles and Tomahawk anti-ship and land-attack missiles make the Arleigh Burke class the most powerful surface combatant ever put to sea.

Navy Issues UCLASS Notice Ahead of Imminent Request for Proposal

US Navy - Page 13 X-47B_11_10

The U.S. Navy issued a pre-solicitation notice to industry on March 13 announcing that the release of a set of draft request for proposals (RFP) for the Unmanned Carrier Launched Airborne Surveillance and Strike aircraft is imminent.
“The Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) intends to initially release a draft solicitation, and then subsequently release a final solicitation, for the Air Segment element of the Unmanned Carrier Launched Airborne Surveillance and Strike (UCLASS) Program to be awarded under a limited competition basis,” reads a notice posted by the Navy on the Federal Business Opportunities (FedBizOps) website. “The UCLASS solicitation will be issued only to the prime contractors currently under contract to conduct Preliminary Design Review (PDR) assessments for the UCLASS Program.”
The four companies include General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, Boeing, Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman.
Naval sources say that the service will release the draft RFP “very soon”—and personnel assigned to the UCLASS program office are working late into the night to complete their work before the expected March 28 deadline.
Industry sources tell USNI News that the FedBizOps notice was a “heads up” off sorts that the draft RFP is imminent.
“The draft RFP is expected 15 days after the pre-solicitation notice, so we’re anticipating its arrival on the 28th,” an industry source told USNI News on Monday.
Once the Navy issues a set of draft requirements, the service will hold an “industry day” about 30 to 45 days afterwards to hear the feedback from the four companies. Once the requirements are refined and finalized based on industry feedback, the Navy is expected to release a final RFP in the, “summer” of this year.
The Navy hopes to achieve an early operational capability with six UCLASS air vehicles by 2020.

LCS Alternative Task Force Named

US Navy - Page 13 Bilde?Site=M5&Date=20140318&Category=DEFREG02&ArtNo=303180031&Ref=AR&MaxW=640&Border=0&LCS-Alternative-Task-Force-Named


WASHINGTON — The effort to re-evaluate the US Navy’s small surface combatant program is underway under the direction of a new Small Surface Combatant Task Force (SSCTF).
As directed Feb. 24 by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, the task force will examine the littoral combat ship (LCS) and compare it with other designs, all with a goal to buy “a capable and lethal small surface combatant generally consistent with the capabilities of a frigate.”
The task force replaces the LCS Council, a now-defunct, high-ranking group convened in August 2012 to give the LCS program added direction and focus.
Unlike the council, which was led by a three-star admiral, the task force is being led by a civilian, and does not include a flag officer.
John Burrow, executive director of the Marine Corps Systems Command, will lead the task force, according to a March 13 directive from Adm. Jon Greenert, chief of naval operations (CNO), and Sean Stackley, the Navy’s chief acquisition official.
Burrow, a member of the Senior Executive Service, now provides direction and oversight of command-wide resources, programs and management systems, and is engaged in all aspects of ground equipment and systems acquisition for the Marine Corps, according to his official biography. It is not clear if he has previously been involved with the LCS program.
Six experienced captains, one commander and another civilian, all from OPNAV — the offices reporting directly to CNO, or the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) — make up the rest of the task force membership.
A flag-Senior Executive Service advisory group will assist the task force. Co-chaired by Allison Stiller, chief surface ship acquisition officer, and Rear Adm. Thomas Rowden, director of surface warfare, the group is made up of OPNAV or NAVSEA representatives, with one civilian from Norfolk-based Fleet Forces Command.
What is perhaps unusual is that neither group features a representative from the active-duty Naval Surface Force command. Vice Adm. Tom Copeman, head of the San Diego-based command, was a member of the council and previously identified the need to study alternatives to the LCS designs.
The SSCTF is directed to develop an analysis plan by the end of March. As directed by Hagel and Greenert, the group will consider modified LCS designs, existing designs or a new ship design.
In order to create a baseline, the task force is directed to prepare a “side-by-side comparison” of the requirements and capabilities of Oliver Hazard Perry FFG 7-class frigates and the LCS.
The once-numerous FFG 7s, designed in the 1970s, are soon to leave service. Only about a dozen remain active, and all will be gone by the end of 2015. The ships were to have been replaced by new LCSs, but only four of the new ships are active, and only about six will be in service when the last frigates are decommissioned.
The March 13 task force directive did not specify a date as to when its work should be completed. Hagel said Feb. 24 that the work should be done in time “to inform” decisions for the 2016 budget, which would lead to a fall 2014 time frame.
