    A tweaked DoD cloud strategy looks beyond Amazon

    By: Jessie Bur  A recent Department of Defense memorandum indicates that the agency wants to pursue multiple commercial cloud vendors as it attempts to modernize its IT and data infrastructure, though a single provider will still have singular influence over the agency’s “general purpose cloud.” “DoD is driving toward an enterprise cloud environment that is composed of a general purpose cloud and multiple fit-for-purpose clouds,” the memorandum to Congress, released Feb. 4, said. “In addition, it should be recognized that the Department will still need non-cloud data center capability for applications that are not suited for the cloud. Over time, with the adoption of an enduring enterprise cloud strategy, the non-cloud environment should become smaller.” That general purpose slot will be filled by the awardee of the $10 billion Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure contract, which has been criticized for its single-award intent as giving the winner an outsized control of the defense cloud market. Many companies vying to support the Pentagon’s cloud requirements claimed that the odds were stacked in Amazon’s favor. The approach spurred protests and a lawsuit in fact. According to the memorandum, the fit-for-purpose environment will be made up of the Defense Information Systems Agency’s milCloud suite, as well as other unnamed vendors. Throughout the cloud migration process, DoD will stick to four guiding principles: War-fighter First — any cloud solution must at all times address the needs of improving lethality while not jeopardizing the safety and mission of American war fighters. Cloud-Smart, Data-Smart — cloud solutions must streamline transformation and embrace modern capabilities while enhancing data transparency and visibility. Leverage Commercial Industry Best Practices — the cloud strategy should promote competition and innovation while preventing lock-in of one particular solution or technology. Create a Culture Better Suited for Modern Technology Evolution — the strategy will need to create a culture of learning and innovation while discouraging custom, federated approaches. This approach to commercial cloud is not entirely unexpected, as DoD Chief Information Officer Dana Deasey said during an October 2018 press event for the Defense Enterprise Office Solution cloud contractthat the agency would be delineating between general purpose and fit for purpose contracts. "This marks a milestone in our efforts to adopt the cloud and also in our larger efforts to modernize information technology across the DOD enterprise," Deasy said in a statement on the memo to Congress. “A modern digital infrastructure is critical to support the war fighter, defend against cyberattacks and enable the department to leverage emerging technologies like machine learning and artificial intelligence.” The new strategy also means that DoD will move away from a cybersecurity posture that focuses on perimeter defense and instead prioritize the protection of data and systems. “DoD will produce a unified cybersecurity architecture that addresses cloud and the needs of classified and unclassified missions and data. The capabilities will be tested and assessed independently and frequently to ensure that cybersecurity attributes remain effective against developing threats,” the memo said, adding that the CIO will determine the command and control requirements between the agency and the cloud service providers. Cloud contracts will also likely include requirements for training and workforce development to ensure that DoD can develop the expertise necessary to use and protect their new cloud environments. And any potential migrations to cloud will have to come with thorough evaluations of legacy DoD applications. “It is imperative that DoD has a cloud strategy to ensure that legacy applications are not moved to cloud without properly re-architecting them to make use of the data, security, resiliency and application advantages that cloud provides,” the memo said. “Additionally, DoD should independently test and assess cloud network security to verify security compliance and incident response and review all contractor and third-party testing results to ensure that performance and security monitoring are sufficient.” https://www.federaltimes.com/it-networks/cloud/2019/02/04/dod-to-officially-pursue-a-multi-vendor-cloud-strategy

  • FUTUR AVION DE CHASSE EUROPÉEN : LA FRANCE RETROUVE SON LEADERSHIP AÉRONAUTIQUE

    FUTUR AVION DE CHASSE EUROPÉEN : LA FRANCE RETROUVE SON LEADERSHIP AÉRONAUTIQUE

    13 janvier, par Nicolas Lefebvre D’ici 2040, le Rafale français, l’Eurofighter allemand et le F-18 Hornet espagnol laisseront la place aux chasseurs de 5e génération du programme européen SCAF. Si les partenaires français de ce consortium tirent leur épingle du jeu, reste à mettre en place une gouvernance à long terme dans ce programme. Juin 2019, salon aéronautique du Bourget. Le patron de Dassault Aviation, Éric Trappier, ne cache pas sa fierté au moment de poser pour les photographes devant la maquette grandeur nature de la future fierté européenne en matière d’avions de chasse. Le SCAF (Système de Combat Aérien Futur, également baptisé Next Generation Fighter, noms provisoires) est certes sur les rails, mais il n’y a pas une minute à perdre. Le patron de Dassault est un homme pressé, et veut se donner les moyens de tenir les délais. « Ce n’est pas de l’impatience, c’est indispensable », a-t-il lancé au Bourget, avec le planning en tête : première démo en 2026, produit fini en 2040. Cela semble loin ; en réalité, c’est demain pour l’Europe de la défense. Tenir ce planning passera forcément par une bonne entente avec ses différents partenaires français, allemands et espagnols, les trois pays scellant leur avenir commun le 17 juin dernier. Genèse d’un projet pan-européen L’histoire mérite un petit retour en arrière. Initialement, Dassault devait convoler en justes noces avec les Britanniques de BAE Systems, l’un des géants européens de l’industrie de la Défense. En 2010, Paris et Londres – grâce au tandem Sarkozy-Cameron – sont sur la même longueur d’ondes, les premiers budgets de développement sont débloqués, le futur avion de chasse mobilise les équipes de part et d’autre de la Manche. En 2014, Dassault Aviation, BAE Systems, Thales, Rolls-Royce et Safran, auxquels se sont joints les Italiens de Leonardo, travaillent de concert. Jusqu’en 2016. Les dents grincent dans de nombreuses entreprises, Safran (ex-Snecma) a par exemple peur de disparaître, écrasé par Rolls-Royce. La coopération s’arrête, le divorce est consommé ; les Français cherchent d’autres partenaires et se rapprochent des Allemands. En juillet 2017, le tandem Merkel-Macron lance le programme SCAF, sous l’impulsion commune du Français Dassault Aviation et de l’Allemand Airbus Defence And Space, basé à Munich. La planification stratégique pour les 25 prochaines années se fera donc en haut lieu, suivant la vision de ces deux intégrateurs systémiques, piliers du projet. Ont par la suite rejoint l’aventure le motoriste allemand MTU Aero Engines et son homologue français Safran, l’électronicien français Thales et leurs homologues allemands Rohde & Schwarz et Hensoldt, ou encore le consortium européen MBDA et le fabricant allemand Diehl pour l’armement. Depuis, les Britanniques ont choisi de s’allier avec les Italiens de Aeronautica Militare et les Suédois de Saab pour développer le chasseur furtif Tempest. Mission nº1 : d’abord régler le différend avec les Allemands Retour à l’actualité. Les plus belles histoires connaissent elles aussi des couacs. Tout allait bien jusqu’en juin 2019, les Allemands sortant alors le carnet de chèque pour compléter un premier budget de 65 millions d’euros pour les 24 prochains mois, sachant que la recherche et développement s’élèvera à terme à 200, voire 300 millions d’euros. Mais Paris et Berlin sont tombés sur un os : les deux pays ne suivent pas la même politique diplomatique à l’export. Au printemps dernier, l’affaire des livraisons d’armes françaises à l’Arabie saoudite, dans le cadre de la guerre au Yémen, passe mal outre-Rhin. Le Bundestag – le Parlement allemand – est en effet très réticent à l’idée d’exporter des armes servant dans cette guerre en particulier. Une position d’autant plus paradoxale que l’Allemagne est beaucoup plus indulgente vis-à-vis des entreprises qui exportent par exemple des armes vers la Turquie, embourbée dans sa guerre contre les Kurdes. Un avion commun comportant des éléments français et allemands devra néanmoins nécessairement respecter les contraintes les plus fortes. En l’occurrence celles venues de Berlin. En septembre, le patron français de Dassault a demandé aux gouvernements français et allemand de régler cette brouille diplomatique pour ne pas entraver la bonne marche du programme commun. Mission nº2 : ensuite assurer le leadership systémique du projet Côté français, le programme SCAF réunit aujourd’hui les compétences et savoir-faire de fleurons de l’industrie de la Défense : l’avionneur Dassault Aviation, le motoriste Safran, ainsi que Thales pour la partie électronique. Trois grandes entreprises du secteur régalien de la Défense. Thales – dirigé par Patrice Caine – et Safran – dirigé par Philippe Petitcolin –ont en commun d’avoir l’Etat français à leur capital, respectivement à hauteur de 25,7% et de 11%. L’Etat français est également présent indirectement chez Dassault via la participation d’Airbus (9% environ, sachant que l’l’Etat détient 11% d’Airbus). A noter que Dassault Aviation, aux mains de la famille Dassault – détient également 24,3% de Thales. Chez Dassault, la priorité est désormais de garder la main sur le projet, et de rendre pérenne la coopération franco-allemande. Une position de nº1 qui fait d’ailleurs des envieux, notamment du côté de Thales. Entre les patrons de Dassault et de Thales, il y a d’ailleurs un petit air de Je t’aime, moi non plus, les deux entreprises se connaissant par cœur puisqu’elles collaborent sur de nombreux projets et en premier lieu sur le fleuron militaire de Dassault, le Rafale. En réalité, Patrice Caine a très mal pris de ne pas être intégré au projet SCAF, dès le début. De plus, si Dassault considère que le fuselage reste la pierre angulaire d’un avion furtif, Thales pense que l’électronique et l’intelligence artificielle ont déjà pris le pas sur plateformes. En clair, Thales ne veut plus de l’étiquette de simple « équipementier » et se rêve désormais en maître d’œuvre des grands programmes d’armements. Sachant que du terrestre au naval, en passant par l’aérien, Thales est présent absolument partout, l’argument n’est pas complètement dénué de sens. De plus, les systèmes d’armes actuels sont effectivement centrés sur la communication entre systèmes de capteurs et systèmes d’armes, cœur de métier de Thales version défense. Pour autant, Thales manque cruellement de l’expérience nécessaire à la conduite des grands programmes. Il est possible que l’adoubement de Caine par Emmanuel Macron, après le rejet de la candidature d’Henri Proglio en 2015, ait donné des ailes au patron de Thales dont l’ambition dévorante dérange, en interne comme en externe. Le groupe n’hésite pas en effet à croiser le fer avec ses condisciples industriels de défense et Patrice Caine est coutumier des joutes franco-françaises : pour marquer son territoire il n’hésite pas, par exemple, à présenter Thales face à des partenaires français comme cela a pu être le cas face au constructeur maritime Naval Group début 2019 lors d’un important appel d’offre belgo-néerlandais qu’il a finalement perdu. L’histoire ne manque pas de sel quand on sait que la société détient 35% de Naval Group. Thales ne manque pas pourtant de sujets internes de préoccupation voire d’inquiétude, parmi lesquels l’intégration de Gemalto, spécialiste de la cybersécurité récemment racheté pour 5,6 milliards d’euros. Pour revenir sur le futur avion de chasse européen, Éric Trappier garde la main. Et à travers lui, l’aéronautique français dans son ensemble. La France n’est pas la seule bénéficiaire de ce programme ; se joue aussi à long terme la souveraineté industrielle de l’Europe sur les questions de défense. https://www.taurillon.org/futur-avion-de-chasse-europeen-la-france-retrouve-son-leadership
