    La France souhaite donner un nouvel élan à ses coopérations industrielles de défense avec l’Allemagne

    La ministre des Armées, Florence Parly, est revenue sur le programme franco-allemand d’avion de patrouille maritime (Maritime Airborne Warfare System) à l’occasion d’une rencontre avec l’association des journalistes de défense (AJD) qui s’est tenue à Paris le 2 juillet. Le 23 juin, le Bundestag a voté en faveur de l’acquisition de cinq avions de patrouille maritime Boeing P-8A Poséidon pour un montant évalué à 1,77 milliard de dollars comprenant le soutien et les équipements associés. La ministre des Armées reconnaît ainsi une divergence d’opinion « sur le fait de satisfaire un besoin intermédiaire » de la part de l’Allemagne. Cependant, selon elle, « il est trop tôt pour dire ce qui va se passer (…) ; je mets toute mon énergie pour faire en sorte que les choses aboutissent ». S’agissant du drone MALE européen, Florence Parly se montre confiante : « nous avons calé les différents éléments du contrat. J’espère que ce contrat pourra être mis en vigueur dès que les derniers sujets de financement évoqués par certains de nos partenaires auront été définitivement résolus ».  L’Usine Nouvelle, 5 juillet

    L3Harris Technologies awarded third LRIP order on US Army’s HMS Manpack IDIQ contract

    Rochester, N.Y. Apr 28, 2020 - L3Harris Technologies (NYSE:LHX) has received a third low-rate initial production (LRIP) order valued at $95 million by the U.S. Army under the HMS (Handheld, Manpack & Small Form-Fit) IDIQ contract to bring AN/PRC-158 multi-channel radios to the battlefield. This LRIP will be followed by an Operational Test that will inform a Full Rate Production decision for the AN/PRC-158 and other HMS products. The IDIQ contract includes a five-year base and an additional five-year option with a ceiling of $12.7 billion. The Army expects to purchase approximately 65,000 HMS Manpack radios under the IDIQ. The L3Harris AN/PRC-158 radio features a two-channel, software-defined architecture with integrated cross-banding between waveforms, including Single Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System (SINCGARS), Mobile User Objective System (MUOS), Demand Assigned Multiple Access/Integrated Waveform (DAMA/IW) and ready for the Warrior Robust Enhanced Network (WREN) waveform, providing advanced capabilities while maintaining backward interoperability with legacy systems. The software-defined architecture enables flexibility to respond to new and emerging requirements and allows easy porting of new waveforms. The radio is capable of simultaneously handling classified and unclassified data. “L3Harris is proud to deliver the most critical part of the U.S. Army’s Integrated Tactical Network, enabling secure multi-mission capability in the most challenging and contested environments,” said Dana Mehnert, President, Communication Systems, L3Harris. “The AN/PRC-158 will equip soldiers with cutting-edge waveforms, providing resilient SATCOM and advanced wideband networking at the tactical edge.” About L3Harris Technologies L3Harris Technologies is an agile global aerospace and defense technology innovator, delivering end-to-end solutions that meet customers’ mission-critical needs.
