MALD-X will feature improved electronic warfare and other enhancements

TUCSON, Ariz., July 10, 2016 - The U.S. Air Force awarded Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) $34.8 million to demonstrate upgraded electronic warfare capabilities for the Miniature Air Launched Decoy-Jammer missile. Development of the new version of the MALD-J, called MALD-X, will be completed in only 24 months and will culminate in two flight demonstrations.

"MALD-X will build on the successful MALD platform to demonstrate the advanced electronic warfare capabilities needed today and in the future," said Mike Jarrett, Raytheon vice president of Air Warfare Systems. "MALD-X creates an upgrade path for the current MALD-J program of record and meets the requirements for the MALD-N, a net-enabled decoy/jammer for the U.S. Navy."

MALD is a flying vehicle that confuses adversaries by posing as friendly aircraft. MALD-X, a modular weapon designed for the Strategic Capabilities Office under the U.S. Secretary of Defense, will demonstrate an improved electronic warfare payload, low-altitude flight and a datalink that will allow the weapon to communicate with other net enabled systems.

"MALD-X will allow the Air Force and Navy to quickly move on to the next generation of MALD, providing a substantial increase in capability and potential mission areas," said Dr. Will Roper, director of the Special Capabilities Office at the Office of the Secretary of Defense. "The program will provide the combatant command with a flexible capability that will address key needs in multiple regions of the world."

MALD-X is a uniquely collaborative effort, contracted and managed by the MALD Program Office at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida, with program oversight from the SCO and shared technical management by both the Air Force and Navy.

MALD® is a state-of-the-art, low-cost, expendable flight vehicle that is modular, air-launched and programmable. It weighs less than 300 pounds and has range/endurance of approximately 500 nautical miles and 90 minutes. MALD-J adds radar-jamming capability to the basic MALD platform.

  • MALD confuses enemy air defenses by duplicating friendly aircraft flight profiles and radar signatures.
  • MALD-J maintains all capabilities of MALD and adds jamming capabilities.
  • Raytheon began delivery of MALD-Js in the fall of 2012.

A BAE Systems Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft featuring the latest weapons fit will display at the 2016 Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) and Farnborough International Air Show.

The UK Typhoon aircraft will take to the skies at the RIAT show on July 8, 9 and 10 followed by this year’s Farnborough International Air Show, with BAE Systems Experimental Test Pilot Nat Makepeace at the controls.

The display will demonstrate Typhoon carrying four Meteor Beyond Visual Range Air to Air missiles, two Brimstone 2 low collateral precision strike weapons (consisting of three Brimstone missiles each outboard wing pylon), two ASRAAM missiles and two Paveway IV laser guided precision weapons.

Nat Makepeace, BAE Systems Typhoon Experimental Test Pilot, said:

This is one of the first times a Typhoon aircraft has flown with this weapons fit and it demonstrates the significant milestones which have been achieved towards integration of these new capabilities on to Typhoon, providing the combat pilot with a full range of capabilities.

Typhoon provides air forces with a highly capable and extremely agile multi-role combat aircraft, capable of being deployed in the full spectrum of air operations.

This display will also demonstrate is that Typhoon, even with this weapons fit, loses none of the incredible agility and manoeuverability for which it is known.

A significant contracted programme of work is currently being conducted by the Eurofighter Partner Companies, with the support of MBDA, Eurofighter GmbH and the UK Ministry of Defence, towards the integration Phase 2 and Phase 3 Enhancement packages for Typhoon.

Phase 1 Enhancements were delivered on to the aircraft last year, underlining Typhoon as a high-end multi-role weapon system with unmatched air-to-air capability and the integration of Paveway IV for precision air-to-surface operations.

With Phase 2, Typhoon will gain a deep attack capability through the integration of the Storm Shadow air-to-surface deep strike missile and a beyond visual range capability through integration of Meteor.

Phase 3 Enhancements will introduce a low collateral precision strike air-to-surface capability to Typhoon through Brimstone.

DALLAS, June 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) received a $331.8 million contract from the U.S. Army for Lot 11 production of Guided Multiple Launch Rocket System (GMLRS) rockets. The contract calls for the production of GMLRS Alternative Warhead rockets, GMLRS Unitary rockets and Reduced-Range Practice Rockets (RRPRs) for the U.S. Army, U.S. Marine Corps and for Foreign Military Sales (FMS) to Israel, Finland, Jordan and Singapore.

Work will be performed at the Lockheed Martin facilities in Camden, Arkansas, and Dallas. All production deliveries are anticipated to be completed by March 2018.

"Our domestic and international customers continue to display their confidence in this combat-proven system by placing orders for the family of MLRS munitions, including the new GMLRS Alternative Warhead round," said Ken Musculus, vice president of Tactical Missiles for Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. "Guided MLRS is trusted, reliable and affordable."

GMLRS is an all-weather rocket designed for fast deployment that delivers precision strike beyond the reach of most conventional weapons. The new GMLRS Alternative Warhead (AW) was the first munition developed to service area targets without the effects of unexploded ordinance, complying with DoD cluster munitions policy. GMLRS Unitary rockets greatly exceed the required combat reliability rate and have established a reputation for affordability.

Defence and security company Saab will present the mounted Giraffe 1X antenna for the first time at Eurosatory 2016 as part of a very short-range (VSHORAD) solution. The lightweight, compact Giraffe 1X can be handled by one single operator.

For mobile forces out in the battlefield, air situational awareness is critical. The threat can consist of rockets, mortar, unmanned aerial systems, missiles or asymmetric attacks from terrorist groups.

Providing reliable protection for the forces and assets is even more important in high-risk situations. This requires a flexible and agile radar which can be located close to the combat area. Saab’s Giraffe 1X is lightweight, with a total weight of less than 200 kg and is designed for easy integration. This means that the complete radar can be transported on a pickup truck-sized vehicle, a helicopter or towed on a trailer. Its flexibility and compactness mean Giraffe 1X can be easily shifted, for example from a vehicle to the roof of a building, making it ideally suited to the rapidly changing needs of mobile forces.

Because it can be operated both remotely and locally, Giraffe 1X can either be installed permanently on a building or mast or integrated into a suitable vehicle. Saab’s unique and proven enhanced low, slow and small (ELSS) capability also provides a dedicated counter-unmanned aerial vehicle (UAS) feature.

“We have a world-class range of surface radars and as a truly European supplier it is great to be able to showcase one of the new radar family members, Giraffe 1X, at Eurosatory”, says Anders Linder, head of Saab’s business unit Surface Radar Solutions.

Giraffe 1X works with VSHORAD air defence systems in the field and at Eurosatory 2016 it is on display as part of Saab’s VSHORAD solution, including the RBS 70 NG VSHORAD. The new RBS 70 NG VSHORAD from Saab, with 24/7 all-target capability has been developed for the most demanding combat situations. Its integrated sighting solution, enhanced operator aids, unbeatable range and unjammable laser guidance combine to produce a system with world-leading capabilities. When partnered with the Giraffe 1X, the VSHORAD suite is unmatched in target identification and countermeasures.

Eurosatory 2016 will give the Iveco–Oto Melara Consortium (CIO) the opportunity to display the latest and most innovative achievements in the field of armoured vehicles.

CIO will present in Paris its newly developed Centauro II, the latest evolution of the Centauro Family. The Centauro having been the first 8x8 wheeled antitank vehicle in the world with a high-pressure gun. The Centauro II represents the logical evolution, being armed with a third generation 120/45 mm gun, with integrated muzzle brake and semi-automatic loading system. The weapon system provides a fire power equivalent to that of most modern main battle tanks, and is capable of firing all latest generation 120 mm, NATO APFSDS and multi-role MP munitions.

To ensure unequalled mobility a new-generation engine, upgraded transmission, braking system and control electronics have been adopted. While maintaining the H-drive architecture, the Centauro family hallmark, the chassis was rearranged to further improve protection against mines and IEDs, state-of-the-art add-on ballistic packages fitted to the hull ensuring high level protection against kinetic energy and hollow charge projectiles. The same applies to the turret, which also follows the add-on armour kit concept. Ammunition stored in the hull and in the turret are hosted in compartments separated from the crew section by explosion-proof doors, pre-carved panels and dedicated anti-explosion systems ensuring further crew safety. The Centauro II turret is fitted with latest generation optronics for the commander and gunner and with a suite of communications and command and control systems ensuring maximum situational awareness. The turret can be fitted with a Hitrole Light RCWS, that increases flexibility in other-than-war scenarios while ensuring maximum crew protection.

Another vehicle of the Centauro family on display is the Centauro AIFV/OWS 30 Freccia, which combines the proven and highly reliable drive train of the Centauro Family with a hull designed to ensure maximum crew survivability. It has outstanding tactical mobility thanks to its powerful engine driving an automatic gearbox and enhanced by 3-axle steering. The overhead version is fitted with the HITFIST OWS 30mm turret, a remotely operated weapon station developed with the latest technologies in the field of electronics, signature and Man Machine Interface. The main armament consists of the 30mm chain gun, electrically controlled in elevation, traversing and firing operations.

The Centauro VBM Mortar Carrier shares the characteristics of mobility and versatility typical of the Centauro family. Its platform is fitted with a 120 mm rifled mortar that offers many advantages in terms of precision, range, operativeness and ergonomy thanks to its semi-automatic loading system. The system is operated by electro – hydraulic servo system for traverse and elevation of the mortar.

The vehicle with its weapon system on board can be rapidly deployed in complex security conditions thus providing effective support to combat units. The Command, Control and Communication system installed together with a Command and Control System for Artillery allow a deep integration of this platform in the net-centric scenario.
