MBDA sélectionné dans un programme de lutte anti-drones de l’Union européenne

MBDA France a été sélectionné au sein d'un consortium de 42 sociétés par l'Union européenne pour développer une nouvelle architecture de lutte anti-drones. 14 pays européens, dont la France, sont regroupés sur ce programme de développement qui pourrait déboucher sur un programme financé par le fonds européen de défense. MBDA sera en charge, notamment, du développement d'un nouvel effecteur, et de la démonstration qui aura lieu sous deux ans, la durée maximale du programme de 13,5 M€. Plusieurs entités françaises ont également été retenues tels que CILAS, spécialiste français du laser, l'Onera, Thales et CS Group. La France avait lancé ses dernières années plusieurs programmes de lutte anti-drones, dont le MILAD (moyen interarmées de lutte anti-drone), qui n'avait pas eu les résultats attendus par les armées. L'armée de l'Air et de l'Espace avait eu plus de succès avec Hologarde, en développant une approche plus opérationnelle, qui assure un meilleur taux de détection.

    Booz Allen wins $1B contract to protect NASA, USPS and Treasury networks

    By: Justin Lynch Booz Allen Hamilton has won a $1 billion contract from the Department of Homeland Security to protect federal agencies' computer networks, the company announced Aug. 21. The six-year contract is a a $1.03 billion task order, consisting of one base year and five one-year options. It was awarded to support Homeland Security's Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation program, which protects the federal government from cyberattacks and hacking attempts. The mitigation program uses sensors to search for known cyber flaws, which allows officials to manage critical risks. The contract will protect the networks of six agencies, including the Departments of Health and Human Services, Treasury, as well as NASA and the U.S. Postal Service. Booz Allen said in a release their solution secures nearly 80 percent of the .gov enterprise, including 4.1 million network addressable devices, more than 1.75 million users, over 19,700 sites, and 89 individual Federal organizations. Booz Allen will begin by analyzing what and who is on the networks. They will also be charged with monitoring the systems and enhancing data protection. The program is part of the larger Dynamic and Evolving Federal Enterprise Network Defense (DEFEND) program,, which protects the federal government's network against cyberattacks and is valued at as much as $3.4 billion. In February, Booz Allen was awarded a six-year contract to help federal departments and agencies defend networks faster with more greater visibility, according to Marcie Nagel, the firm's leader on its CDM portfolio. https://www.fifthdomain.com/civilian/dhs/2018/08/22/booz-allen-wins-1b-contract-to-protect-nasa-usps-and-treasury-networks

    Raytheon plows ahead to build US Army’s future radar

    By: Jen Judson WASHINGTON — The first antenna array for the U.S. Army's Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor passed through initial testing at Raytheon's Massachusetts-based facility, and it will embark on future testing at an outdoor range in the short term, a company official told Defense News. The antenna array went into an indoor, climate-controlled test range, and its performance was evaluated against simulated targets, Bob Kelley, Raytheon's director of domestic integrated air and missile defense programs for business development and strategy, said during a March 16 interview. The technology “came out fantastic on the other side,” he added. Now the array will be mounted on a precision-machined enclosure for integration, Kelley said, and then it will head to a range for testing with real-world targets such as air traffic coming in and out of Boston's Logan International Airport. Raytheon is plowing ahead with an aggressive schedule to deliver the first LTAMDS radar to the Army next year. So far it's on track and on schedule. The company finished building the first radar antenna array in less than 120 days after being selected for the job, following a competition to replace the service's Patriot air and missile defense system sensor. The radar will become a part of the service's future Integrated Air and Missile Defense System that will replace the entire Patriot system. Raytheon also manufactures the Patriot. Raytheon has taken its years of experience refining gallium nitride technology at its Massachusetts-based foundry to help design a new radar system that will provide the Army 360-degree threat detection capability in a configuration that includes one large array in the front and two smaller arrays in the back. The contract is worth roughly $384 million to deliver six production-representative units of the LTAMDS. The Army is working to rapidly deliver initial capability under an urgent materiel release. The service in 2019 held a “sense-off” at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico, between three working radars from Raytheon, a Lockheed Martin and Elta Systems team, and Northrop Grumman. https://www.defensenews.com/smr/army-modernization/2020/03/17/raytheon-plows-ahead-to-build-us-armys-future-radar/
