BAE Systems تبدأ فى تصنيع الرادار Captor الخاص بالمقاتله Typhoon Tranche 3a

HILLEND, United Kingdom --- BAE Systems Manufacturing at Hillend in Fife has been awarded a major contract worth in excess of £20million to provide procurement and electronic manufacturing services to SELEX Galileo, as part of their contract to deliver the Typhoon Tranche 3a Captor radar programme, which is the primary sensor for the Typhoon jet, and one of the most technically advanced airborne radar systems in the world. Work on the programme is due to commence at BAE Systems’ Hillend facility this year and will run until 2013.

Danny O’Brien, General Manager stated “The recent award is a reflection of the strong business relationship between SELEX Galileo and BAE Systems Manufacturing Hillend. The close working style will enable effective responses to existing and next generation programmes.”

Manufacturing Hillend has won over £165m orders in the last 12 years from their Customer SELEX Galileo for both Captor Radar and DASS (Defensive Aids Sub System) assemblies used on the Typhoon combat aircraft.

The Captor radar represents a major programme of sub-contract work for Hillend comprising multiple types of complex printed circuit boards and electronic modules, which make up one of the most vital elements of the radar system.

Andy Brown, VP business procurement at SELEX Galileo, stated “The end result that was achieved for these contract awards has followed a number of months of sterling effort by both companies. We have jointly addressed the challenges from our Customer Chain, and also reflected the need to “up the ante” in a tough economic climate. Team work between our two companies made a real difference, and gives us both a strong platform for success in these important programmes”.

BAE Systems Manufacturing, Hillend, Fife is part of BAE Systems Mission Systems and employs around 200 people. The site offers a state-of- the-art manufacturing facility producing complex electronic assemblies to the UK and export defence markets.

SELEX Galileo, a Finmeccanica company, is a leading player in defence electronics. The Company employs over 7000 people and operates mainly in three domestic markets: UK, Italy and the US through dedicated legal entities. With a distinctive strength in airborne mission critical systems, and a wide range of capabilities for the battlefield and for homeland security applications, SELEX Galileo always offers the best solution to its customers.

J-15 Fighter Jet Tests Expected on Chinese Aircraft Carrier Shi Lang

China's first aircraft carrier Shi Lang, Currently on its maiden voyage, is widely expected to have its shipborne fighter jets conduct simulated landing trials Saturday, after a navigation ban and radio control notice was put in place.

The landing trials will go ahead if weather conditions allow, but fighters will take off as soon as they approach the ship instead of actually landing, a source close to the trial told the Global Times Friday.

The source also revealed that the jets to be used in the tests are J-15s, a domestically made heavy fighter, dubbed the People's Liberation Army navy's "Flying Shark."

The trials are aimed mainly at testing the radar system and optical landing system of the aircraft carrier, which left its shipyard in northeastern Dalian and began its first five-day journey on Wednesday, the source said

BAE Systems Seeks Feedback on MIG-29N Replacement Programme   
  KUALA LUMPUR --- BAE Systems, which is eyeing Malaysia's MiG-29N replacement programme, is currently seeking responses and gathering information from local companies as well as government agencies on the requirements of the programme and the industry.

Its director, Typhoon Malaysia, Military Air & Information, Ian Malin, said for the past months, the UK-based defence and aerospace company has been engaging with government agencies like Malaysian Investment Development Authority and Malaysia Industry-Government Group for High Technology as well as 20 local companies in various sectors.

"We have been talking with the industry players as well as government agencies to get their feedback and to know specifically what Malaysia wants. We will continue to do so for the next couple of months," he told a media briefing here today.

Among industry options the company could offer included research and development, training, manufacturing, systems integration as well as in maintenance, repair and overhaul, Malin said.

In March, BAE Systems submitted a rough order of magnitude prices of the multi-role combat aircraft Eurofighter Typhoon to replace the 18 MiG-2N aircraft.

BAE Systems will likely be up against three other competitors, including Boeing, French's Rafale and Sweden's Gripen, for the replacement programme. Eurofighter Typhoon is manufactured by BAE Systems and three European partner nations -- Germany, Italy and Spain.

On other note, the company has moved its regional head office to Kuala Lumpur from Singapore, which will help strengthen relationships with existing customers and industrial partners in the region, as well as developing new business opportunities in emerging markets such as Vietnam.

The move underpinned BAE Systems' long-term commitment to Malaysia, in which it has had a presence for over 20 years.

It would allow the company to focus on growing Asian markets, where many governments have an interest in achieving industrial growth through collaborations, technology transfer and inward investment.

BAE Systems, which is a familiar face at the bi-annual Langkawi International Maritime & Aerospace Exhibition (LIMA), will participate in this year's LIMA from Dec 6-10, 2011.

Britain orders 14 Boeing Chinooks in £1bn deal

Britain announced Monday it has ordered 14 new Chinook helicopters from US aerospace and defence giant Boeing at a cost of £1.0 billion ($1.65 billion, 1.1 billion euros).
Considered as the Royal Air Force's workhorse, the transport choppers have served in theatres such as the Falklands War, Northern Ireland, Iraq and Afghanistan.
The versatile heavy lift aircraft can transport up to 40 men or 10 tonnes of cargo.
Britain already has the largest Chinook fleet in Europe and the order will take it to 60 aircraft. All of the 14 new helicopters should be fully operational by 2017.
The Labour government of former prime minister Gordon Brown was dogged by criticism that British forces in Afghanistan did not have sufficient equipment, particularly troop-carrying helicopters that would avoid soldiers having to travel by bomb-laden roads.
Current Prime Minister David Cameron's Conservative-Liberal Democrat coalition claims it was left a £38 billion "black hole" of unfunded defence spending commitments when it took office.
The government has cut the defence budget by eight percent in a bid to curb Britain's huge deficit.
"We have brought reality to the defence budget and can start signing contracts that will deliver real equipment," Defence Secretary Liam Fox said.
"The previous government promised more Chinooks, but never ordered them and never had the money for them. It was just an aspiration.
"These additional helicopters will significantly enhance our existing heavy lift helicopter capability.
"This fleet will support our frontline troops in current and future operations for decades to come."
The new Mark 6 Chinooks will feature a digital flight control system making them easier to operate in tough conditions, such as the hot and dusty environments encountered in Afghanistan where Britain has 9,500 troops stationed.
The RAF should receive the first aircraft for initial trials and testing in 2013 and it should enter service the following year.
Delivery of all 14 helicopters should be complete before 2016. Three should be ready for operational deployment in early 2015 and all 14 should be fully operational by early 2017.
The Boeing deal includes development, manufacture and the first five years of support to the helicopters
