Rolls-Royce secures £198 million contract to support UK Pegasus fleet
Wednesday, 28 January 2009
Rolls-Royce has been awarded a £198 million contract by the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD) to support the Pegasus engines which provide the Harrier fleet with its unique Short Take Off and Vertical Landing (STOVL) capability.
The 10-year contract provides a guaranteed level of availability of Pegasus engines to power the aircraft operating in the UK’s Joint Force Harrier, which is operated by both the Royal Air Force and the Royal Navy.
Under the terms of the contract, Rolls-Royce will undertake all aspects of engine support, including the provision of replacement engines to meet customer demands, and technical support both at operating locations and from the Rolls-Royce state-of-the art facilities in Bristol.

Je répète : "La vie des Harriers va, donc, être longue" !

Il me semble:

- Entre porte-avion et attente du F-35M cette option parait normale...
Aux marins de prendre le main!

Merci, nago, pour cette réaction prompte !
Bien vu !
Puis, dans ces cultures-là, c'est le pragmatisme qui règne, ... et non pas la doctrine ! Very Happy

By Craig Hoyle
The UK Ministry of Defence could delay the planned replacement of its Afghanistan-based BAE Systems Harrier GR9A strike aircraft with Royal Air Force Panavia Tornado GR4s, amid concerns over the available basing infrastructure and support set-up for the incoming type, military sources have disclosed.
Possibilité de retarder le retrait des "Harrier" d'Afghanistan !

"We are still looking for a deployment in spring 2009," says the RAF, while declining to reveal a firm date for the GR4's expected availability. "There is likely to be a phased transition from one aircraft to another," it continues, while adding: "There won't be a capability gap."
Quelles que soient les modalités de la transition entre les "Harrier" et les Tornado, avec une "période cible" au printemps, 2009, il n'y aura pas de "trou" / de "vide" pendant cette transition.
UK air activities in Afghanistan are also to be expanded within the coming months by the deployment of navy Westland Sea King 7 Airborne Surveillance and Control system helicopters. Equipped with new defensive aids equipment and Carson main rotor blades, the type will provide ground moving target indication imagery, and complement the RAF's recently fielded Raytheon Sentinel R1 airborne stand-off radar aircraft.
La présence britannique en Afghanistan va être intensifiée beintôt : arrivé des hélIcoptères 3 Westland Sea King 7 Airborne Surveillance and Control system" ! Et avec tiout ce que cela implique comme amélioration de forces et de ressources (y compris électroniques) de combat.
Operations of the UK's Harrier fleet are meanwhile to be enhanced under a new availability-based contract placed with Rolls-Royce. The company will support the aircraft's Pegasus turbofan engines for the next 10 years under the £198 million ($283 million) deal.
Voilà le rappel de l'information mentionnée dans les posts ci-dessus.

BAE Systems Welcomes New £574 Million Harrier Availability Contract

http://www.defpro.com/news/details/6963/

16:14 GMT, April 23, 2009
BAE Systems has today welcomed the award of a new £574 million Harrier availability contract from the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD). The contract, which will ensure increased availability of Harrier fighter aircraft to support frontline forces, is consistent with the Company’s strategic move to grow its readiness and sustainment capabilities and support its customers through partnering agreements.

Under the contract known as HPAC; Harrier Platform Availability Contract, BAE Systems will take over responsibility for the depth maintenance of the UK’s fleet of Harrier aircraft that will support
the aircraft until its out-of-service date (currently 2018). This maintenance will be carried out jointly with the Royal Air Force (RAF) and the Royal Navy (RN) at RAF Cottesmore. The RAF and Royal Navy will continue to carry out day-to-day flightline maintenance.

Under the HPAC service, BAE Systems will be responsible for the maintenance of the RAF’s and RN’s Harriers, along with providing spare parts and technical advice to the operational squadrons.

Alun Fishburne, Director of Harrier at BAE Systems, said: “Signature of HPAC represents a major achievement for the joint BAE Systems / UK MOD team and recognises that the connection between the UK’s defence industrial sector and our armed forces has never been more vital. It will provide an effective and flexible through life service to the front line customer at significantly reduced cost. It builds on major growth in BAE Systems’ support activities, and aligns with our ultimate goal to support the men and women of the armed forces.”
A report on fast jet support by the National Audit Office stated that BAE Systems’ existing contracts have already reduced the cost of maintaining the Harrier by £109m, helped cut the cost per flying hour by 44%
and made an additional 11 aircraft available to the frontline.

The current contracts such as the Joint Upgrade and Maintenance Programme (JUMP), operating out of RAF Cottesmore, are being incorporated into HPAC and the new contract will build on the success of these. The BAE Systems team has met every milestone on the programme to date.

Group Captain Andy Ebdon, Harrier IPT Leader, MOD, said: "HPAC is great news for the future support of Harrier and is testament to a tremendous sustained joint effort by MOD and Industry to build on the successes already achieved. Joint Force Harrier is now assured of the cost effective support throughout its remaining service to 2018."
With the award of the £450m Typhoon Availability Service (TAS) contract on the 4th March, the UK MoD has awarded availability contracts valued at over £1bn to BAE Systems in the last two months.
