Thud Factor for August 25, 2008 covering contracts announced August 13-25

 

Department of Defense released an interesting array of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), Maintenance Repair and Overhaul (MRO) of aircraft, aircraft structural parts and modifications as well as a big-ticket electrical services contract.

 

The Army announced three contracts to San Diego, CA-based General Atomics with a total maximum value of $29.7 million.  The contracts cover time and materials support services, three extended-range multi-purpose Block 0 Block 0 Unmanned Aircraft and support for the IGNAT/Sky Warrior Alpha UAS. 

 

Simi Valley, CA-based AeroVironment Incorporated won a $17.7 million contract for Raven systems and spares.  Even when placing the cyclicality of contract announcements aside there is a clear trend toward service-specific ownership and perhaps even control of in-theater UAS.  It will be interesting to see just how these programs will result in DoD UAS “jointness.”

 

MRO and announcements specific to service life extension for P-3 dropped during this timeframe as well.  L-3 Waco, Texas collected a $60 million contract for four P-3 Outer Wing Assembly kits in support of the P-3 recovery plan.  The P-3 fleet anxiously awaits Initial Operating Capability (IOC) for the Boeing P-8 Poseidon, but this is but one in a number of service life extensions and recapitalization efforts DoD wide.  For a closer look at DoD spending in outsourced MRO as well as in airframe structural components please click here and here

 

Also of interest in regard to aircraft maintenance is a $40 million Air Force IDIQ contract to CPI Aerostructures, GSE Dynamics and Top Flight Aerostructures.  The contract will cover 108 structural aircraft parts for the following platforms: C-5, A-10, H-53, B-52, B-1, A-10 and T-38.

 

Engineered Fabrics won a $41 million contract for extended range fuel cells.  Equipment such as this has been invaluable in extending range for U.S. rotary wing assets in the high-hot and remote conditions faced in Afghanistan and Iraq.

 

SAIC of Fairfield, New Jersey won a $250 million Defense Logistics Agency contract for MRO with a planned completion in August of 2009.

 

Suez Energy Resources announced a whale of a DLA electrical services contract totaling $646 million.  Infrastructure is expensive.

Thud Factor for August 12, 2008 covering contracts
announced August 1-12

 

Boeing Launch Services (El Segundo, CA) bagged the largest announcement from Aug. 1-12 with a $1.6 billion contract for Delta IV and associated space asset engineering, integration and infrastructure.  The Thud waits for a similar contract to go to Lockheed to support its Atlas V EELV and associated space assets.

 

IED jam and defeat saw three separate contracts over the nine business days covered in this edition of the Thud Factor.  Lockheed Martin picked up a contract for $38.1 million, TT Corporation another support services contract for $39.6 million and EDO Corporation out of Thousand Oaks, CA won a $187.3 million contract for 2,873 remote control improvised explosive device electronic warfare systems.  All three contracts are expected to complete before 2010; may these systems be quick to field and extremely effective.

 

The Navy continued in its commitment to the F-18 family, which has been a common Thud Factor theme over the past year.  One does wonder if the F-18 family will become more than a gap-filler for Navy variants of F-35.  McDonnell Douglas was awarded a $659.2 million contract for 16 F-18s in two variants, while Northrop Grumman Bethpage, New York won a $48.8 million contract for software services applicable to both the EA-6B and EA-18G.

 

General Dynamics Land Systems was awarded a $766 million for: “the development and manufacture of System Development and Demonstration two (SDD-2) Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle (EFV) prototypes.”

 

Here is some additional text from a GDLS EFV brochure:

 

“General Dynamics has achieved a true break through in combat vehicle design by

providing high water speed, outstanding cross country mobility, fire power and

protection in an amphibious vehicle. The Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle (EFV)

possesses the ability to launch forces from 20-25 nautical miles out to sea and

transport them to shore at speeds in excess of 20 knots (three times the current

platform’s speed). EFV provides the elements of flexibility and tactical surprise critical

to establish battlefield dominance. Its inherent land mobility will generate uninterrupted

momentum to attack the enemy’s critical vulnerabilities.”

Thud Factor for July 31, 2008 covering contracts announced July 3-31

 

C4ISR was a strong, high-dollar value thread through DoD contract announcements this month.  Also of note were numerous construction and MRO contracts, some of which are listed below here.  An interesting, and encouraging takeaway from these contracts is an emphasis on connectivity through secure communications, a common operational picture (COP), JTIDS and innovative surveillance and reconnaissance ideas via tethered aerostats and a consistent number of construction contracts to Northrop Grumman’s Global Hawk program. 

 

Boeing is working on an interesting premise, one that would use the Iridium satellite constellation as essentially another set of spaceborne platforms for the existing NAVSTAR GPS constellation.  In theory this could lead to greater satellite “availability”.  It will be interesting to see if, and how this premise is validated.

Thud Factor for July 4, 2008 covering contracts announced June 21st through July 2

 

Technology development, engineering and proof of concept are prevalent themes in this edition of the Thud Factor.  Although not all contracts listed here have a huge financial component (in relative DoD terms) their inclusion is intended to portray the potential long-term importance via capability enhancement.  In total, these chosen contracts are of interest for a couple reasons: first, the missions covered are not always immediately associated with the offering companies, and second, a successful concept/contract execution could help the offering company to “own” the mission for years to come.

 

Boeing won two contracts over this time period; one for Non Recurring Engineering (NRE) costs associated with the E-6B Internet Protocol and Bandwidth Expansion.  The other interesting Boeing contract was for aircraft integration engineering studies for airborne standoff attack.  Both contract announcements are in their entirety below.

 

General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems (AIS) won a $9.4 million contract to continue development of a Common Network Interface for a single integrated tactical picture. General Dynamics Network Systems captured a $3.1 billion ICE2 contract for information technology sustainment and technical support.

 

Northrop Grumman, Bethpage, New York took three contracts pertaining to the E-2D weapons system totaling $93 million.  Northrop Grumman Electronic Systems of Linthicum, MD took a $20 million Air Force contract to further develop technologies for standoff electronic attack.

 

Lockheed Martin, Owego took a $144 million contract for the MH-60R periscope detection and discrimination, which is likely a capability with many other applications in littoral environments.

 

McDonnell Douglas took a $273 million contract for continued C-17 sustainment, and Aerovironment won a $200 million contract from Special Operations Command for small fixed wing aircraft systems.

Thud Factor for May 22, 2008 covering contracts announced May 5-22

 

The Thud makes an attempt to catch up this week, and aside from some lucrative maintenance, repair and recapitalization of air and ground assets a common theme this May is UAV and associated sensor contracts.  Through four separate contracts in this timeframe, UAVs, aerostats and their capabilities are being brought to bear in:

 

 

ITT (Communications and Countermeasures as well as AES) won a pair of contracts for productized technologies to be used in the detection and defeat of Improvised Explosive Devices.  May they be both effective and brought to bear as soon as possible.

 

It was also a good month for Booz Allen Hamilton.  The company secured six USAF contracts with a total value of $95.3 million.  The contracts and their associated task orders will assist the Air Force in the broad categories of information superiority, information assurance (ATC and cybercrime) and an analysis of both the NIPRNET and SIPRNET systems.

Comments: Expect to see continuing if not growing number, value and duration contracts for the entire F-18 family.  Again, trade press comments and even some Congressional USN testimony point to a USN confidence in the platforms capabilities against anticipated air-to-air threats.  The F-18 should allow the USN to bridge a current gap between retirement of the F-14, entry into service of the Naval variant of the F-35 and an envisioned carrier-based UCAV.

Comments: The fast tracking of MRAP acquisition, deployment and sustainment continues, with previous Thud Factor editions pointing to private-party contracts to speed the vehicles to Iraq and Afghanistan.

 

Oshkosh Corp., Oshkosh, Wis., is being awarded $11,214,202 for delivery order #0050 under previously awarded indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract (M67854-04-D-5016) for the purchase of 37 Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacement (MTVR) variants and 28 weapons mount kits for MTVR vehicles. Work will be performed in Oshkosh, Wis., and work for this delivery order is expected to be completed by Dec. 2008. Contract funds will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year. The Marine Corps System Command, Quantico, Va., is the contracting activity.

Comments:  The text and capabilities quoted here from an Oshkosh Defense brochure are impressive for a vehicle of this size and weight:

 

“The U.S. Marine Corps Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacement (MTVR) is a revolution in off- road mobility. This truck redefines performance possibilities for all military vehicles well into the future. With the Oshkosh TAK- 4™ Independent Suspension System, the MTVR achieves levels of performance never before realized in a tactical wheeled vehicle, enabling the MTVR to traverse terrain previously regarded as impassible by military trucks. The addition of an all aluminum cab and a strict anti-corrosion program during production enables the MTVR to continue to perform long after other current tactical vehicles have been sent to the salvage yard.

 

The MTVR reflects the same high-quality proven standards of reliability found in other Oshkosh products used throughout the world. With a Marine Corps requirement of 70% off - road and 30% on-road, the MTVR exceeds these standards by more than three fold. The MTVR will operate in climatic extremes from -50°F to 125° F while carrying a 7.1 ton payload cross-country or up to 15 tons on primary or secondary roads. It is capable of traversing a 60% gradient and a 30% side slope with its maximum cross-country load, fording five feet of water, traveling at 65 mph on paved surfaces, and has an on-road cruising range of 300 miles.

 

The pace of modern battle is accelerating rapidly, but a fighting force can move only as fast as its supplies and equipment. The MTVR will allow the fighting force to move whenever and wherever the battle dictates.”

Comments:  There is likely to be more engine work and contracts for V-22 variants.  Public information on power-performance indicates higher operational engine levels and temperatures to attain desired thrust/lift effects.  This is possibly a function of teething problems as the first V-22 rotation rotates out of Iraq. Weight and engine performance are important considerations for any aircraft and the V-22 is no exception.  With the Osprey expected to gain weight with the addition of defensive armament engine performance will be of even greater importance.

Thud Factor for April 22, 2008 covering contracts announced April 11-22

The biggest contracts over this time period went for missile defense ($400 million to Raytheon) and a fresh batch of 4,526 Humvees from AM General ($650 million).  Iraq and Afghanistan have placed the Humvee squarely in a battlespace not all variants were initially designed for.  Subsequent up-armoring has placed a great strain on these vehicles, as has battle damage.  The U.S. Army will continue to adapt to the realities on the ground in continuing to fight the Iraqi and Afghan versions of the 3-Block War, but the strain on personnel and materiel is undeniable.

 Raytheon’s contract is for the design, development and activation of a European mid-course radar, with the current and most likely host being the Czech Republic.  At present it also appears that Poland is the frontrunner for any kind of interceptor field.  Both of these systems, and their placement, are intended to thwart an Iranian ballistic missile threat.  Follow this link for an interesting read on the Missile Defense Program Overview:

Comments: It will be interesting to see how the engine situation on the V-22 fleets play out.  Recent reports of power degradation on deployed Ospreys are an ominous note, but one must expect continuing developmental issues when looking at such a weapons system.  In truth, the V-22 does not figure to get any lighter, especially with efforts in the works to install a belly-mounted gun. In sum, the V-22’s engines will only face increasing demands.

Thud Factor for March 25, 2008 covering contracts announced March 14-24

 

The biggest news this week was the March 14 announcement of three separate Mine Resistant Armor Protected (MRAP) contracts totaling more than $1.125 billion.  When realized the contracts should provide 2,214 MRAPs in various configurations.  The remarkable thing about these contracts is that all are expected to be completed by November of 2008, which should be welcome news to U.S. forces deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan. 

There were complaints concerning the speed of DoD’s reaction to a pervasive Improvised Explosive Device (IED) threat.  These included criticizing the pace of Humvee and other tactical vehicle up-armoring when doing so changed nearly every facet of vehicle performance.  Unconfirmed reports circulated indicating that up-armored Humvees were chewing through tires in just hundreds of miles; this is but one issue among many.   

The time between the up-armoring of countless tactical vehicles and fielding of an essentially new class of MRAP vehicles is impressive when compared to a traditional – sometimes decade-long – DoD procurement cycle.  There may be some room for criticism, but these contracts show a DoD and industrial base ability to adapt and hopefully perform.

These contracts also lend credence to the conclusion that U.S. presence in Iraq and Afghanistan might be measured in years, and perhaps a decade or more to come.

Comments: DoD still lives under a 50/50 aggregate rule when it comes to organic versus outsourced maintenance.  Prior to Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom there were voices advocating a greater role for outsourced maintenance, citing an inadequate supply of work for the Air Force’s Logistics Centers.  Long-term maintenance impacts from OEF and OIF, as well as an aging USAF fleet will have an undetermined maintenance impact well into the next decade.

Thud Factor for 14 March 2008, covering contracts announced 4 March through March 14, 2008

A little, or a lot of something for all of the majors here over the March 4-13 timeframe. Contracts relating to deployable/upgradeable armor kits and an expansion of U.S. submarine littoral support capabilities could breathe new life into existing DoD weapons systems. These are testament to some ingenious thinking in countering evolving threats and mission environments.

ITT Industries Avionics Div., Clifton, N. J., is being awarded a $111,540,000 modification to a previously awarded firm-fixed-price contract (N00019-05-C-0054) to exercise an option for the Fiscal Year 2008 full rate production Lot V of 66 AN/ALQ-214(V)2 On-Board Jammer Systems for the F/A-18 E/F Aircraft. This option combines purchases for the U.S. Navy ($103,090,000; 92 percent), and the Government of Australia ($8,450,000; 8 percent) under the Foreign Military Sales Program. Work will be performed at various locations for all other vendors throughout the U.S. (43.5 percent); Clifton, N.J., (34.4 percent); East Syracuse, N.Y., (8.8 percent); San Diego, Calif., (8.3 percent); and Rancho Cordova, Calif., (5 percent), and work is expected to be completed in Dec. 2010. Contract funds will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year. The Naval Air Systems Command, Patuxent River, Md., is the contracting activity.

 

Comments: With anticipated delays and possible reductions in foreign F-35 participation the F/A-18 E/F looks like a prescient U.S. Navy acquisition decision – one which may in fact bridge a gap beyond F-35.  Recent news about potential Navy interest in an additional F-18 order only serve to strengthen these scenarios.

Bell-Boeing Joint Program Office, Patuxent River, Md., is being awarded a $78,500,000 indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract for the V-22 Full Flight Simulator (FFS) and Flight Training Device (FTD) products and revisions. This contract will provide analysis, design, development, upgrade, enhancements, integration, installation, test, training, maintenance, logistical support and configuration management for V-22 FFS and FTD training devices, Aircraft Common Operational Equipment (ACOE), FFS and FTD training device spare parts. The contract also includes the incorporation of V-22 Training Equipment Change Requests in to FFS and FTD training devices. Work will be performed in Fort Worth, Texas (50 percent); and Philadelphia, Pa. (50 percent), and is expected to be completed in March 2011. Contract funds will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year. This contract was not competitively procured. The Naval Air Systems Command, Orlando, Fla., is the contracting activity (N61339-08-D-0004).

 

Comments:  Very little has been heard with regard to the Osprey’s deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom, and this is probably fine with DoD.  It is unclear exactly what types of missions the V-22 is currently supporting, but if the V-22 is performing as advertised is should provide a significant speed and range advantage over the current USMC rotary-wing inventory.

Ensign-Bickford Aerospace & Defense Co., Simsbury, Conn., was awarded on March 7, 2008, a $69,061,510 firm-fixed price contract for 485 XM19 Abrams reactive armor tile sets. Work will be performed in Simsbury, Conn. and Graham, Ky., and is expected to be completed by June 30, 2009. Contract funds will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year. There were six bids solicited on June 29, 2007, and two bids were received. The U.S. Army Joint Munitions and Lethality Life Cycle Command, Picatinny Arsenal, N.J., is the contracting activity W15QKN-08-C-008.

 

Comments:  Interesting award in light of repeated mentions in the press pertaining to novel methods of armoring vehicles.  Apparently the trend is to have a number of “hard points” on the vehicle where successive generations of armor types can be mounted.  Ideally this will allow for technology/hardware refreshment without making obsolete a complete vehicle class.  There may be tradeoffs in terms of weight, performance and center of gravity issues but in principal the idea of armor sets has merit.

Northrop Grumman Space and Mission Systems Corp., Redondo Beach, Calif., was awarded on Feb. 20, 2008, a $3,289,079.00 cost-plus-fixed-fee contract for Phase one of the System F-6 Program. Work will be performed in Redondo Beach, Calif., Carson, Calif., Beltsville, Md., Nashua, NH, Ithaca, N.Y.; Pasadena, Calif., Cambridge, Mass., and Wilmington, Mass., and is expected to be completed by Feb. 19, 2009. Contract funds will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year. There was a broad agency announcement bids solicited on Jul. 16, 2007, and six bids were received. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, Arlington, Va., is the contracting activity HR0011-08-C-0033.

 

The Boeing Co., Huntington Beach, Calif., was awarded on Feb. 21, 2008, a $10,568,621.00 cost-plus-fixed-fee contract for research, development, design and testing to support DARPA's System F-6. Work will be performed in Huntington Beach, Calif., Anaheim, Calif., Manhattan Beach, Calif., San Jose, Calif., and Torrance, Calif., and is expected to be completed by Feb. 20, 2009. Contract funds will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year. There was a broad agency announcement bids solicited on Jul. 16, 2007, and six bids were received. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, Arlington, Va., is the contracting activity HR0011-08-C-0030.

 

Comments:  These two contracts are part of an interesting program, one with the intent of disaggregating satellite constellations by introducing what is in effect a flexible networked series of satellites weighing less than 300kg.  “System F6 - Future Fast, Flexible, Fractionated, Free-Flying Spacecraft united by Information eXchange – will demonstrate the feasibility and benefits of a satellite architecture in which traditional "monolithic" spacecraft are replaced by clusters of wirelessly-interconnected spacecraft modules.”       

 

As of late 2007, the plan was to launch the first set of satellites no more than four years after project award.  In light of emerging worldwide antisatellite capabilities a flexible network of communications/remote sensing/positioning satellites is a somewhat logical response.  Not only would such a constellation allow for “graceful degradation” if nodes were disabled, but the cluster operations aspect could act as a real force multiplier for missions ranging from image analysis to positioning and communications. In a perfect world such a concept could also enable a certain degree of system component flexibility.  In theory sensors, communications and other satellite subsystems would be physically separated, but linked wirelessly.  In effect such architecture could facilitate module upgrades to sensors, communications or processors.

 

“The F6 program fits into a larger concept that is known as operationally responsive space. One of the U.S. Strategic Command program’s goals is to create satellites that can be built and launched within days or weeks, rather than months or years. The loss of key spacecraft due to attack, space weather or malfunction, makes the U.S. military vulnerable. Critics have called its dependence on space-based assets its Achilles heel,” (National Defense Magazine).

Oshkosh Truck Corp. Oshkosh, Wis., was awarded on Feb. 19, 2008, a $48,906,410 firm-fixed-price award ceiling price modification for family of heavy Tactical Vehicle systems. Work will be performed in Oshkosh, Wis., and is expected to be completed by Dec. 31, 2008. Contract funds will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year. One bid was solicited on Oct. 23, 2006, and one bid was received. The Tank Automotive and Armaments Command, Warren, Mich., is the contracting activity W56HZV-07-C-0248.

 

Comments:  On Feb. 14, 2008 Oshkosh Truck delivered its 20,000th Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Truck to the U.S. Army Tank Automotive and Armaments Command (TACOM).  DoD began its recapitalization and replacement of heavy, medium and light tactical vehicles in the 1990’s and this process looks to continue with protracted operations in support of Afghanistan and Iraqi deployments.  Look for a growing number of up-armored medium and heavy tactical vehicles to roll off the assembly lines, replacing the ad-hoc retrofitting and rushed deliveries the past three years have brought.  Companies such as Oskosh Truck, Stewart & Stevenson (Armor Holdings), General Dynamics Land Systems, AM General and others will likely continue development of in-house armoring capabilities or acquisition of companies in furtherance of this goal.

Global Security and Engineering Solutions, a Division of L-3 Services, Inc., Chantilly, Va., is being awarded a ceiling value $326,318,075 firm-fixed-price, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity requirements contract to design, fabricate, install, and test the Tactical Video Capture System (TVCS) for various Marine Corp bases worldwide. The Marine Air Ground Task Force Training Command (MAGTFTC) staff and personnel will use the TVCS for Real-Time Visualization (RTV) and Situational Awareness (SA) while Marine Units are conducting Military Operation in TVCS to conduct After Action Reviews (AAR) of the just completed training exercise. The contractor will perform system design, development, integration, installation, logistics, engineering, and training of the TVCS. Work will be performed at government sites worldwide, and the work is expected to be completed Feb. 2011. Contract funds will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year. This effort was competitively procured as a full and open competition procurement, with one offer to the solicitation received. The Marine Corps Systems Command, Quantico, Va., is the contracting activity (M67854-07-D-8000).

 

Comments:  If as advertised this is a tremendous training tool.  Increasingly DoD will likely have to balance three-to-five-year technical development programs with acute in-theater needs.
