Journée sur la Défense et Sécurité / Spatial

LA JOURNÉE DÉFENSE ET SÉCURITÉ / SPATIAL 2022

La journée Défense et Sécurité / Spatial est organisée par Aéro Montréal, avec la collaboration stratégique du Conseil national de recherches Canada (CNRC).

Cette journée est organisée dans le cadre de la Semaine internationale de l’aérospatiale - Montréal 2022, le plus grand rassemblement de décideurs des secteurs de l’aérospatiale et de la défense au Canada. Elle se tiendra le jeudi 8 septembre 2022, en formule hybride : en présentiel au Palais des congrès de Montréal et en virtuel, via une plateforme web dédiée.

La thématique de l’événement est « L’importance et la puissance de l’innovation ».

Différents axes seront développés, couvrant l’ensemble des acteurs de notre chaîne de valeur :

  • Un état des lieux de l’innovation dans les secteurs de la défense et de la sécurité, à l’heure où le Canada soutient massivement les grands projets d’acquisition en défense
  • L’innovation spatiale dans le cadre de la protection des populations et de l’étude des changements climatiques : des experts internationaux s'entretiendront sur le rôle et les enjeux du secteur spatial en matière de développement durable et sur ses nouvelles applications technologiques synonymes d’opportunités pour l’industrie et les gouvernements

    RCAF seeks proposals on air weapons range upgrades

    by Chris Thatcher The Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) is asking for industry help to develop a road map for the modernization of its fighter aircraft training ranges. Public Services and Procurement Canada on July 8 issued a request for proposals (RFP) for a plan that would capitalize on Live-Virtual-Constructive (LVC) training and experimental environments at the two primary air weapons ranges in Cold Lake, Alta., and Bagotville, Que., as well as other ranges in Gagetown, N.B., Wainwright and Suffield, Alta, and Valcartier, Que., and at the Canadian Forces Maritime Experimental and Test Range in Nanoose Bay, B.C. The Cold Lake Air Weapons Range (CLAWR), in particular, is considered a strategic asset that is vital to RCAF individual and collective training, as well as integrated training with the Canadian Army, Canadian Special Operations Forces Command, and allies. It regularly hosts the multinational Maple Flag exercises. But the ranges were last upgraded almost 20 years ago and no longer provide sufficient representation of current threats or the connectivity to work with advanced next-generation fighter jets. They have also become expensive to maintain. “Obsolescence, threat replication, and other land use stakeholders challenge the CLAWR’s current utility to training fighter forces, while its future training environment must enable rehearsing the integration of future capabilities against emerging peer adversaries,” explained Stephan Kummel, director general of Fighter Capability, told Skies in a statement. “The RCAF requires airspace designed for advanced air platforms, target arrays suitable for modern weapons, modern training instrumentation, and low-level communications to monitor and control training, and a selective security classification system to permit challenging simultaneous training at different classification levels so participants can share data within their approved national caveats.” The RFP noted that RCAF investments in various virtual constructive capabilities over the past decades “were delivered through discrete projects where interconnectivity with the spectrum of RCAF LVC capabilities was not a requirement.” As part of the road map, the Air Force is asking industry to “consider” the current modelling and simulation environment, virtual proving grounds, and all current RCAF platform simulators — including an eventual remotely piloted air system — as well as air traffic control, air weapons, and air and space control simulators. The aim is a report that “recommended way forward to modernize the ranges and integrate all RCAF LVC capabilities … Ranges, simulators and virtual environments need to be developed in a manner that supports collective training, but solutions must also support collective and distributed research and experimentation. The proposed investment strategy for the LVC modernization program must enable a seamless transition of equipment and environments between training and force development activities,” according to the RFP. The 12-month contract, which includes a one-year optional extension, is divided into three phases: initial scoping, design and lifecycle support. The initial scoping report is expected to identify shortfalls in “critical range infrastructure such as: threat replication, briefing and de-briefing capability and facilities, communication, Air Combat Maneuvering Instrumentation (ACMI), EM spectrum management, A/G target design, specialist support personnel and security.” “This roadmap is the first step in a multi-stage process that will ensure the long-term viability of force generation efforts, training, testing and evaluation, and the execution of large-scale multinational exercises such as Maple Flag,” said Kummel. https://www.skiesmag.com/news/rcaf-seeks-proposals-on-air-weapons-range-upgrades/

    The selection of a vessel that doesn’t yet exist has contributed to the risk of building Canada’s new warship fleet, but the parliamentary budget officer acknowledges he’s at a loss on why the price tag keeps rising. Parliamentary budget officer

  • Canada’s fighter jets up to peacetime standard in Romania

    Canada’s fighter jets up to peacetime standard in Romania

    By Charlie Pinkerton Canada’s aging fighter jets remain fit for a peacetime role, says the commander of Canada’s air-policing mission in the Black Sea region. Five of Canada’s CF-18 fighter jets have been deployed to Romania since late August as part of the NATO deterrence mission in the region. Lt.-Col. Tim Woods has flown amid the 135 members of the Royal Canadian Air Force, which he has commanded for four months. “In a peacetime air-policing role, we’re well-equipped (with the CF-18),” Woods said. Canada’s CF-18s are more than 30 years old and were originally meant to be replaced after two decades. National Defence now plans to buy 25 used jets from Australia to supplement its fleet until its yet-to-be-selected next generation of fighter jets is fully integrated in the early 2030s. The plan has been harshly criticized by the government’s opposition, which was validated by a disparaging report by Canada’s auditor general last month. Canada’s jets were flown in Romania to intercept a lone Russian SU-27 Flanker aircraft flying in NATO airspace on Oct. 18. Woods says he piloted one of the two jets that performed the interception. “From our standpoint, it was a professional interaction,” Woods said. “We flew up alongside him. I’m looking as his airplane, trying to get all the information I need about his airplane, and he’s probably doing the same with us. “I waved to him, he waved to me, he gave me a thumbs-up, I gave him a thumbs-up. He took a photo of our aircraft with a hand-held camera, and then we basically left him on the way after that.” Of the approximately 300 missions Canada’s Air Task Force has flown during its current deployment in Romania, that’s been the only interaction it’s had with Russian forces. For a similar deployment last year, Canada only sent four CF-18s to Romania. This year, Canada sent a fifth to be used in case another jet had to be repaired or have maintenance done. It’s becoming more difficult to repair Canada’s aging jets because of the shrinking availability of parts, Woods said. “That does become a challenge, but that’s what we have to work with.” The CF-18s require 24 hours of maintenance for each hour the jets are flown, compared to 21 hours required in 2014. Because the Romanian mission is ongoing, information about it is classified. Therefore, Woods wouldn’t disclose details about the frequency of repairs made to Canada’s jets there. But he did say Canada’s fifth jet “came in very handy on this mission.” Asked about the capability of Canada’s fleet in future, Woods said he agrees with the government’s assessment. Canada’s Air Task Force will return from Romania in January. While the Canadian Armed Forces haven’t announced it, Woods said he expects Canada to return a similar-sized force to the NATO mission next year for the same duration. Canada has provided troops and jets to the mission periodically since 2014. A previous version of this story mistakenly referred to Lt.-Col. Tim Woods as Tim Cook. iPolitics regrets the error.  https://ipolitics.ca/2018/12/18/canadas-fighter-jets-up-to-peacetime-standard-in-romania/
