  • AVION DE COMBAT DU FUTUR : DASSAULT AVIATION EXHORTE LA FRANCE ET L’ALLEMAGNE À S’ENTENDRE RAPIDEMENT

    AVION DE COMBAT DU FUTUR : DASSAULT AVIATION EXHORTE LA FRANCE ET L’ALLEMAGNE À S’ENTENDRE RAPIDEMENT

    Paris et Berlin doivent impérativement régler leurs différends sur l'avion de combat du futur, avertit Dassaut Aviation. Le projet européen d'avion de combat du futur tarde à prendre forme. A cet égard, le patron de Dassault Aviation a appelé Paris et Berlin à rapidement se mettre d'accord sur des règles d'exportations concernant le Système de Combat Aérien Futur (SCAF) franco-germano-espagnol, pour permettre de lancer les études menant à la conception d'un démonstrateur. "La notification (du contrat) des démonstrateurs aurait dû se faire en juin lors du salon du Bourget. Septembre devait être l'heure du lancement, on évoque aujourd'hui la fin de l'année. Attention que cela ne se décale pas trop encore", a mis en garde Eric Trappier à l'occasion de l'Université d'été de la défense sur la base aérienne d'Avord (Cher). Un démonstrateur est un premier prototype, capable de voler. "Ce n'est pas de l'impatience, c'est indispensable" pour conserver l'objectif d'une entrée en service à l'horizon 2040 avec un premier démonstrateur en 2026 comme il est prévu, a prévenu le patron de Dassault, qui assure la direction du programme côté industriels. Paris, Berlin et Madrid ont signé le 17 juin lors du salon du Bourget un accord-cadre structurant les trois pays autour du SCAF. Au coeur de ce système se trouve le futur chasseur (NGF, Next Generation Fighter), destiné à remplacer les actuels Rafale et Eurofighter. Un premier contrat d'architecture, d'un montant de 65 millions d'euros, avait été notifié en janvier à Dassault Aviation et Airbus. Mais pour Eric Trappier, "pour que ce projet prenne réellement son vol, il faut désormais dépasser le stade de la première étude qui nous a été notifié en début d'année. Il faut le poursuivre par le lancement des démonstrateurs, c'est vital". "La volonté de lancer un programme incombe toujours aux politiques et à eux seuls. Il reste encore des points délicats à trancher, notamment des points d'exportabilité", a-t-il noté. Une source gouvernementale française a toutefois confié à l'AFP : "nous sommes en train de converger" sur la question des exportations. https://www.capital.fr/economie-politique/avion-de-combat-du-futur-paris-et-berlin-doivent-regler-leurs-differends-selon-dassault-1350087

  • Dassault Aviation, un modèle à toute épreuve

    Dassault Aviation, un modèle à toute épreuve

    HASSAN MEDDAH Le modèle de Dassault Aviation fondé sur la coexistence d'une activité militaire avec les Rafale et d'une activité civile avec les jets d'affaires a encore montré toute sa pertinence. Gr'ce à cette dualité, l'avionneur traverse la crise du marché de l'aviation d'affaires sans perdre une plume. Il vient d'annoncer de solides résultats financiers pour le premier semestre 2019. Son chiffre d'affaires progresse à 3,1 milliards d'euros (contre 1,71 milliard au premier semestre l'an passé), et son résultat net est en hausse de 54 % à 286 millions d'euros. Dans le domaine de l'aviation d'affaires, Éric Trappier, le PDG du groupe, a pourtant évoqué "un début d'année difficile et un semestre particulièrement plat" avec seulement sept commandes au 30 juin, contre dix-huit à la même période de l'an passé. Il peut toutefois miser sur le Rafale pour effacer cette contre-performance. Dassault a remporté le juteux contrat Ravel de maintenance de l'avion de combat passé par le ministère français des Armées. Cette prestation englobe le pilotage de toute sa supply chain et court sur dix ans. En matière de livraison, l'export a pris le relais à point nommé puisqu'aucun Rafale ne sera livré aux forces françaises en 2019. Depuis le début de l'année, Dassault a livré quinze appareils aux forces qataries. L'avionneur a même confirmé qu'il envisageait d'assembler des Rafale en Inde s'il était sélectionné pour livrer de nouveaux appareils au-delà des trente-six premiers commandés. https://www.usinenouvelle.com/article/dassault-aviation-un-modele-a-toute-epreuve.N882100

  • Belgique : Les retombées du contrat F-35 commencent à se concrétiser

    Belgique : Les retombées du contrat F-35 commencent à se concrétiser

    Par Olivier Gosset Trois accords industriels lient désormais des entreprises de notre pays à Lockheed Martin. Paradoxe du contrat belge: des filiales de groupes français devraient monter à bord du programme F-35. Près d'un an après la décision du gouvernement belge d'acquérir 34 appareils de combat américains F-35, l'industrie aéronautique belge commence à apercevoir les premiers bénéfices de cette commande. Trois accords industriels ont en effet été conclus par le groupe américain de défense Lockheed Martin avec des entreprises belges dans le cadre de potentielles retombées économiques liées à ce contrat de 3,8 milliards, a indiqué lundi un responsable de Lockheed, Yung Le. Le groupe Sabca, présent dans les trois Régions du pays et la société bruxelloise Ilias Solutions, spécialisée dans les logiciels logistiques, ont chacun signé dimanche un accord de coopération industrielle avec le géant américain. Une initiative qui leur donne un ticket d'entrée pour rejoindre le programme F-35. Les accords signés ne sont pas encore des contrats en bonne et due forme. Mais ils permettent aux entreprises retenues de se positionner en tant que fournisseurs potentiels de Lockheed, de ses filiales et de ses partenaires. L'accord avec Ilias Solution semble néanmoins le plus avancé, puisque son directeur général, Jean-Pierre Wildschut, a indiqué que son entreprise pouvait espérer conclure des contrats avec Lockheed Martin à hauteur de 5 millions de dollars par an, soit une croissance de 15 à 20% au cours des cinq prochaines années. Ilias Solution, qui a débuté ses activités dans la foulée du contrat du F-16, espère que cet accord avec LM ouvrira la voie à d'autres missions au service des flottes d'autres pays, pour les F-35 et éventuellement d'autres plateformes. L'accord conclu avec la Sabca porte quant à lui sur des systèmes d'actionnement (servo-commandes), une compétence que le constructeur belge, qui fournit des actuateurs pour les lanceurs spatiaux européens, aimerait développer dans le secteur de l'aviation (lire ci-dessous). Des projets complexes En juin, Sabena Aerospace (Zaventem), spécialisée dans la maintenance aéronautique, avait obtenu de Lockheed Martin la prolongation pour dix ans de son statut de centre de service agréé pour l'entretien et la mise à niveau des avions de transport C-130 Hercules, eux aussi contruits par le groupe américain. À cela, a rappelé Yung Le, il faut ajouter un contrat concret accordé il y a deux ans à Asco – soit avant la décision belge d'opter pour le F-35 – par Fokker Technologies, une entreprise néerlandaise appartenant au groupe britannique GKN Aerospace, pour la fourniture d'ailerons haute vitesse pour le F-35. "Nous voulons accélérer ces accords" avec d'autres entreprises car dès qu'ils sont conclus, l'industrie belge peut travailler sur le programme F-35, a ajouté Yung Le, en rappelant qu'environ 35 projets de coopération avaient été identifiés dans le cadre de la préservation des "intérêts essentiels de sécurité" invoqués par la Belgique pour obtenir des retombées économiques liées à l'achat du F-35. "Certains de ces projets sont simples, d'autres complexes. Certains concernent des petites entreprises, d'autres des grandes", a commenté le responsable américain, conscient de l'impatience des industriels belges. L'un des gros contrats attendus concerne Sabca, Sonaca et Asco. Les trois poids lourds belges du secteur sont associés pour tenter de décrocher la fabrication de volets horizontaux mobiles à l'arrière du F-35. "Mais jusqu'ici, on n'a aucune idée de combien de pièces il pourrait s'agir, ni à partir de quand", déplore un responsable d'une des trois entreprises concernées. De son côté, Safran Aero Boosters, la filiale liégeoise du motoriste français Safran, est engagée dans une dynamique similaire avec Pratt & Whitney, fabricant du moteur F135 qui équipe le chasseur américain. Les deux entreprises ont également signé ces derniers jours un accord actant leur intention de formaliser des opportunités de collaboration – sans les nommer – sur le moteur F135. Paradoxe du contrat belge, des sociétés faisant partie de groupes français (Sabca appartient encore pour l'instant à Dassault, qui souhaite le revendre) devraient donc monter prochainement à bord du programme F-35, grand rival du Rafale construit par nos voisins du sud... https://www.lecho.be/entreprises/aviation/les-retombees-du-contrat-f-35-commencent-a-se-concretiser/10162821.html

    Raytheon Unveils Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missile Project

    Steve Trimble Raytheon has unveiled an internally funded program to develop a new air-to-air missile called Peregrine that combines the reach of the medium-range AIM-120 and the maneuverability of the short-range AIM-9X, but in a smaller form factor to increase the magazine depth of tactical aircraft. The unveiling of a Peregrine mockup on Sept. 16 at the Air Force Association's annual National Convention in Washington comes just three months after U.S. Air Force officials confirmed the ongoing development of the Lockheed Martin AIM-260, which is intended to replace the AIM-120 with a longer-range missile of the same length. The Peregrine missile is being pitched to U.S. and international customers that want AIM-120 performance in a smaller package to double missile loads in the internal weapon bays of stealth fighters or triple the magazine depth on the external weapon stations of nonstealth aircraft, says Mark Noyes, vice president of business development and strategy for Raytheon Missile Systems. “What we see it as is a complement to our [AIM-120] Amraam and AIM-9X,” Noyes says Raytheon's internal development project follows the introduction of multiple weapons boasting longer range than the nearly three-decade-old AIM-120 design. In addition to the MBDA Meteor, the PL-15 is being developed by China and the Vympel K-77M has been ordered by the Russian government. The Peregrine also fits into a new category typified by the 2013 unveiling of Lockheed Martin's Cuda concept, which offered the Air Force a missile with AIM-120-like range—or slightly better—in a package half the size and weight. The Cuda received support from an Air Force Research Laboratory project called Small Advanced Capabilities Missile. Raytheon lists the Peregrine with a length of 6 ft. (1.8 m) and a total weight of about 150 lb. (68 kg), or roughly half the length and mass of the 12-ft., 335-lb. AIM-120. Although Peregrine shares a common stature with Lockheed's Cuda concept, there are distinct differences. Lockheed designed the Cuda as a hit-to-kill weapon, but the Peregrine destroys the target with a blast-fragmentation warhead. The missile is guided to the target with a “multimode autonomous seeker,” says Noyes, but he declined to elaborate. A multimode guidance system places the Peregrine in a different category than the radar-guided AIM-120 and infrared homing AIM-9X. It could more closely reflect the multimode guidance system installed in the Raytheon/Rafael Stunner surface-to-air missile, which combines radar and infrared sensors into a dolphin nose-shaped radome. A “new, high-performance propulsion section” will accelerate the Peregrine to supersonic speed to achieve potentially slightly better range than the AIM-120, but Noyes declined to describe the specific type of propulsion technology selected for the new missile. Several options are available to modern missile designers. The Stunner uses a multipulse rocket motor, while the MBDA powers the Meteor missile with a ramjet-augmented rocket. Missile developers also have been experimenting with new propellant technologies, including exotic gels. Even at a range equivalent to that of the AIM-120, the Peregrine should provide similar endgame maneuverability as the super agile AIM-9X, Noyes says. “It will go supersonic and that's attributable to that new lightweight airframe and high-performance modular control system,” he says. “That permits it [to] go and do incredible maneuvers, especially at the endgame where it's needed most.” How long Raytheon has been developing the Peregrine is not clear. In a blow to Raytheon's hopes to deliver the successor of the AIM-120, the Air Force awarded the AIM-160 development contract to Lockheed in 2017. Raytheon filed a trademark application for a new guided missile called Peregrine on Aug. 14, 2018. The company is testing components and is “seeing tremendous progress,” Noyes adds. “We are making a commitment to mature this so our service customers will resonate with its capabilities and demonstrated performance,” he says. https://aviationweek.com/defense/raytheon-unveils-medium-range-air-air-missile-project

  • Lockheed Martin Skunk Works®' Project Riot Demonstrates Multi-Domain Operations

    Lockheed Martin Skunk Works®' Project Riot Demonstrates Multi-Domain Operations

    PALMDALE, Calif., Sept. 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) Skunk Works®, the Missile Defense Agency and the U.S. Air Force successfully connected an F-35, U-2 and a multi-domain ground station in a ground-breaking test demonstrating multi-domain operations and the secure distribution of sensitive information across multiple platforms. During the demonstration, called Project Riot, an F-35 detected a long-range missile launch with its onboard sensors and shared the information through the U-2 to the air defense commander on the ground, enabling the commander to quickly make the decision to target the threat. This next-level connectivity reduces the data-to-decision timeline from minutes to seconds, which is critical in fighting today's adversaries and advanced threats. In partnership with the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center at Hanscom Air Force Base, Massachusetts, and the Missile Defense Agency, Skunk Works' Project Riot builds on a series of open systems architecture demonstrations proving how incremental increases in capability can be rapidly fielded to enable a connected network across air, ground, sea, space and cyber domains. "This demonstration continues our commitment to provide complete battlespace awareness and seamless interoperability to enable multi-domain operations," said John Clark, vice president of ISR & UAS at Lockheed Martin Skunk Works. "With its long-range standoff sensors, on-board processing and ability to operate in and around contested environments, the U-2 continues to play a critical role in demonstrating new capabilities today, while transforming operations for tomorrow's battlespace." Leveraging common industry standards to drive down cost and shorten schedules, the team achieved four mission critical data points in less than four months: Demonstrated the ability to leverage F-35 sensor data for missile defense Leveraged the modernized U-2's extensive payload capacity, modular design and open architecture to provide beyond line of sight communications between the F-35 and a multi-domain ground station Established two new data paths to securely transmit 5th generation sensor data at multiple levels of security to the warfighter, enabling a multi-domain network of legacy and 5th generation systems Disseminated 5th generation data using the Air Force's Universal Command and Control Interface and Open Mission Systems standards for faster capability deployment and seamless connection between systems "The F-35, with its advanced sensors and connectivity, is able to gather and seamlessly share critical information enabling the joint force to be safer and more effective," said Greg Ulmer, Lockheed Martin vice president and general manager for the F-35 program. "No other fighter jet in the world has this capability – and this test was a critical step on the path to unlocking its full potential for multi-domain operations." This demonstration builds on successful flight tests completed since 2013 that establish the foundation for a distributed, systems-of-systems architecture in the not-too-distant future.
