UAE’s 30-Helicopter Apache Upgrade Program Underway

http://www.defenseindustrydaily.com/uaes-30helicopter-apache-upgrade-program-underway-02551/#more-2551

ARTICLE COMPLET + PHOTOS SOUS LE LIEN.

The United Arab Emirates is best known for its city of Dubai, an ultra-modern port city that has become the trading and commercial hub of the Middle East. As a May 2005 article in National Defense Magazine notes, however, it has also acquired a reputation for a strong and respected military procurement system.

One of their current initiatives involves the Boeing AH-64 Apache attack helicopters the country acquired in 1991 and 1994. The plan involves remanufacture and modernization of 30 AH-64A aircraft to the current AH-64D Longbow standard. Deliveries to the UAE are scheduled to begin in May 2008 and continue through November 2009, with support activities continuing through November 2010. The overall program includes
integration and aircraft integration laboratory support at Boeing, protection and even stealth enhancements, missiles, training devices, initial spares, depot spares, support activities and integrated logistics support.

MH-60R/S: The USA’s New Naval Workhorse Helicopters

http://www.defenseindustrydaily.com/mh-60rs-the-usas-new-naval-workhorse-helicopters-04435/

The US Army’s UH-60 Black Hawks have always had a naval counterpart. SH-60B/F Seahawk/ LAMPS helicopters were outfitted with maritime radar, sonobuoys, and other specialized equipment that let them perform a wide variety of roles, from supply and transport, to anti-submarine warfare, search and rescue, medical evacuation, and even surface attack with their Penguin missiles. They can be found aboard US destroyers, cruisers, and frigates. Like their land-based counterparts, however, the Seahawks are getting older. The Reagan defense build-up is receding into history, and its products are wearing out. The US Navy
realized that a new set of naval helicopters was required, and technology advances offered the prospect of integrating greater capabilities into each machine without having to spend much on R&D.
European firms designed and built the EH101 medium helicopter, and then the smaller NH90, in order to perform these roles. These helicopters are both larger than the H-60 family, offering airframes made with corrosion-proof composites at a size that confers new capabilities. Both have enjoyed export success. The US
Navy, on the other hand, believed that enhancing its proven Seahawk design would be the most cost-effective option for fleet recapitalization. Hence the MH-60R Multi-Mission Helicopter (aka. “Romeo”) and MH-60S (aka. “Sierra”). MH-60Rs and MH-60Ss will eventually replace all SH-60B/F & HH-60H Seahawks, HH-1N Hueys,
UH-3H Sea Kings, and CH-46D Sea Knight helicopters currently in the US Navy’s inventory.
Before this program began, MH- was the traditional designation for special forces aircraft, but the Navy has now adopted it to stand for “multi-mission.” Confusing nomenclature aside, the new MH-60R/S helicopters will be the backbone of the US Navy’s future helicopter force. Both programs are underway, and will be covered in this DID FOCUS Article. The latest additions include new orders for kits to arm the MH-60S, and revised budgetary figures…

US Coast Guard MH-60 "T" Helicopter Upgraded With Rockwell Collins Avionics

http://www.defpro.com/news/details/8016/

12:08 GMT, June 11, 2009 ELIZABETH CITY, N.C. | The U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) reports that the first
production MH-60T Jayhawk Medium Range Recovery helicopter was delivered to the Coast Guard Air Station Elizabeth City, N.C. on June 3rd.

CG 6028 is the third MH-60T delivered overall; two previously delivered MH-60Ts are being used for training and testing purposes. Initial Operational Capability (IOC) for the MH-60T is anticipated this summer, and the new "T" model will replace all five MH-60Js currently stationed in Elizabeth City before the end of 2009.

The Coast Guard's H-60 Product Line managers began converting the first H-60 aircraft to MH-60Ts in January 2007. The "T" conversion provides additional capabilities, including Airborne Use of Force (AUF), to the H-60 fleet and improves system reliability. The AUF package equips the MH-60T with a 7.62mm machine gun for firing warning shots and a .50 caliber long range rifle for precise targeting, such as disabling the outboard engines on a non-compliant "go-fast" vessel. The package also provides ballistic armor for aircrew
protection and upgraded communications sub-systems for better interoperability with other Homeland Security components.

The Rockwell Collins Common Avionics Architecture System (CAAS) in the MH-60T cockpit provides fully
integrated flight and mission management capabilities. Using five multi-function display screens, aircrews can display radar and Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) data, monitor the Traffic Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) and view imagery from the rescue hoist camera. Enhanced radar and optical sensors will also
contribute to an improved common operating picture and maritime domain awareness.

The upgraded helicopters will have a range of 300 nautical miles and have a standard crew of four. All 42 H-60 aircraft in service are scheduled to be fully modernized by 2020.

Saudi Arabia to receive first two S-434 helicopters soon

http://www.defpro.com/news/details/8064/

15:36 GMT, June 15, 2009 Sikorsky Global Helicopters today announced preparations for delivery of the
first two military S-434 helicopters to the Saudi Ministry of Interior (MOI).

These two aircraft signify the beginning of the Saudi MOI light helicopter fleet, which will total nine aircraft upon contract completion. In addition to the aircraft, Sikorsky Global Helicopters will provide a complete
logistical support package including spare parts, special tools, factory training for pilots and mechanics and in-country technical support and pilot instructor. The procedural IFR-equipped aircraft will be configured for both training and patrol missions.
“With these deliveries, the S-434 helicopter will turn a page in its early history, since these are the first
military versions of this aircraft,” said David Horton, General Manager of Sikorsky Global Helicopter’s Light Helicopter Division, located in Horseheads, N.Y. “We are proud to begin this partnership with the MOI and look forward to the further growth of this product line.”

The S-434 helicopter models are the next iteration of the S-333 helicopter model, incorporating many of the
design and performance technologies developed on the Fire Scout VTUAV (Vertical Takeoff Unmanned Aerial Vehicle).
The model 333 operates throughout the world in many demanding missions including law enforcement patrol, commercial and military flight training, power line/pipeline patrol, personal use and lift operations.
Inherited advantages of the 333 helicopter design ensure that benefits such as a cockpit layout with excellent visibility from all crew positions, superior flight handling characteristics, and exceptional safety and
crashworthiness features are retained.
These benefits, combined with the ease of maintenance and reliability that are designed into every component, make the new S-434 helicopter an exceptional value single-turbine helicopter.

Bonsoir à tous,

Le premier Black Hawk à cabine polonaise (PZL Mielec) vient d'être livré.

Sikorsky Delivers First Aircraft With Polish-Built Cabin to U.S. Army

Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. today announced it has delivered the first aircraft with a cabin produced at PZL Mielec, a Sikorsky company in Poland. Sikorsky Aircraft is a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp.
The 145(th) UH-60M BLACK HAWK helicopter was delivered to the U.S. Army on Sept. 30. It is the first of three UH-60M BLACK HAWK helicopter cabins produced by the Polish facility to date for use in UH-60M BLACK HAWK helicopters built at Sikorsky's main manufacturing plant in the U.S.
"The first aircraft sale with a PZL Mielec cabin is a significant milestone in the growth of Sikorsky as a global leader in the aerospace industry and a continued commitment to meet the requirements of the UH-60M program supporting U.S. Army fieldings," said Doug Shidler, Vice President, Army programs. "Sikorsky is proud to be a global sourcing leader. This third cabin source allows us to meet the growing U.S. Army and Foreign Military Sale customer requirements for the UH-60M helicopter."
The cabin was initially delivered to the Sikorsky facility in Bridgeport, Conn., where it was joined with a cockpit manufactured by Kaman in Jacksonville, Fla., and a tail-cone produced by Turkish Aerospace Industries in Turkey. Final assembly, flight operations and delivery were completed at the Sikorsky facility in Stratford, Conn.
"The delivery of the first BLACK HAWK helicopter to the U.S. Army with a cabin produced in our facility is rewarding validation that, with the guidance of Sikorsky Aircraft, PZL Mielec has been transformed into a world-class facility capable of producing BLACK HAWK helicopters," said Janusz Zakrecki, CEO of PZL Mielec.
PZL Mielec was acquired on March 16, 2007 as part of Sikorsky's efforts to increase its presence in the international marketplace.
Recently, PZL Mielec began final assembly of the first S-70i(TM)BLACK HAWK helicopter, marking the beginning of a new helicopter in the Sikorsky product line, an international version of the BLACK HAWK helicopter. Final assembly officially began on Aug. 17. The first S-70i helicopter is expected to be completed in late 2010.

Bonjour à tous,

Le 50 ème MH-60R vient d'être livré à l'US Navy.

Lockheed Martin Delivers 50th Fully Missionized MH-60R Multimission Helicopter to the U.S. Navy

Hélicoptéres US 641a1cbb8a20e72f0ab055bbda8d1b04fe914f90_big

Lockheed Martin [NYSE:LMT] has formally delivered the 50th MH-60R helicopter, fully equipped for its mission to protect the U. S. Navy fleet from hostile submarines and surface ships.

The newest member of the SEAHAWK®️ family of maritime helicopters is designed and manufactured by Sikorsky, with advanced mission systems integration by Lockheed Martin.

“I am extremely proud of the MH-60R team, which has enabled this important milestone in the Romeo's continued introduction to the fleet,” said Rear Adm. Steve Eastburg, Program Executive Officer Air ASW, Assault and Special Mission programs. “The enormous multimission capability of this platform continues to be leveraged by the warfighter in new and innovative ways. It is truly a game-changing platform that will deliver powerful capabilities, ranging from low-end to high-end warfare, in the years ahead.”

During the February 3 delivery ceremony at Lockheed Martin’s Mission Systems & Sensors facility in Owego, NY, Rear Adm. Paul Grosklags, vice commander, Naval Air Systems Command thanked Lockheed Martin and Sikorsky employees and other key suppliers for their contributions to this important program.

“The MH-60R has evolved over 30 years, through lessons learned during developmental testing, fleet deployments and maintenance on these rugged airframes and mission systems, in the harshest maritime environments,” said Grosklags. “It stands now as the premier multimission helicopter in operation today. The U.S. Navy is grateful for the tremendous teamwork and experience you bring to deliver this remarkable weapon system.”

This week, an aircrew from Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron Seven Zero (HSM-70) will fly the 50th aircraft from the Owego, NY, facility to its new home at the Naval Air Station in Jacksonville, Fla. The aircraft is the 10th MH-60R delivered to HSM-70, which was established in February 2009.

HSM-70 will deploy with 11 MH-60R aircraft aboard the USS George H.W. Bush carrier strike group (CVN 77) in 2011. To date, the U.S. Navy has established and equipped four MH-60R squadrons, with plans to fill out 16 more through the purchase of 300 aircraft.

“The 50th delivery is a great opportunity to reflect on the success of the MH-60R within the fleet, to look forward to the expansion of the MH-60R throughout the helicopter community and to recognize the organizations that have brought this tremendous capability to the Navy,” said Captain Dean Peters, the U.S. Navy's MH-60 program manager. “Today, these highly integrated platforms are building a situational awareness picture of the surface and undersea domains that is proving invaluable to fleet operators.”

As mission systems integrator for the Sikorsky-built MH-60R, Lockheed Martin is responsible for integrating the helicopter’s digital cockpit, a multi-mode radar, acoustic sonar suite, long-range infrared camera and other advanced sensors to detect, identify, track and engage surface and subsurface targets. Lockheed Martin also integrates a self defense system to protect the aircraft from missile threats.

“The highly integrated nature of the Common Cockpit™️ avionics suite and the mission systems allows the aircrew to spend less time interpreting data and more time prosecuting the target,” said George Barton, Lockheed Martin’s director of Naval Helicopter Programs.

U.S. Navy test squadrons concluded 1900 hours of rigorous MH-60R flight and mission systems evaluations in 2005. Since full rate production began in early 2006, Lockheed Martin and Sikorsky have delivered all MH-60R aircraft to the U.S. Navy ahead of schedule.

The companies expect to deliver up to 27 fully-missionized MH-60R aircraft in calendar year 2010 to the U.S. Navy as part of a five-year contract for 139 MH-60R aircraft through 2013. Extra production capacity exists to deliver an additional 20 aircraft each year for sale by the U.S. Government to international navies.

The U.S. Navy deployed with 11 MH-60R aircraft for the first time from January to July 2009 with the USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74) carrier strike group. During exercises in the western Pacific, the MH-60R proved to be an exceptional sub hunter and surface warfare weapons platform, accomplishing a 95 percent sortie completion rate, and showing it can perform utility and search and rescue missions among other secondary missions.
