The Army Is Also Working On A New Future A5 Bradley Fighting Vehicle Variant Technology
 
10:32
The Army Is Also Working On A New Future A5 Bradley Fighting Vehicle Variant Technology The Army is also working on a new future A5 Bradley Fighting Vehicle variant possibly armed with lasers, counter-drone missiles, active protection systems, vastly improved targeting sights and increased on-board power to accommodate next-generation weapons and technologies. Designed to be lighter weight, more mobile and much better protected, emerging Bradley A5 lethality upgrades already underway as part of a plan to build upon improvements with the A4. The Army is massively revving up its fleet of Bradley Fighting Vehicles through a recent deal to add up to 473 of the new infantry carriers, service officials said.The move represents a key portion of a broader Army push to prepare its arsenal of armored combat vehicles for major power land war - and further pave the way toward a new generation of combat platforms for the 2030s and beyond. While the Army of course has thousands of Bradleys in its inventory, the size of this buy is extremely significant because, among other things, it it acquires the newest generation of Bradley vehicles - something designed to lay key groundwork for longer-term high-priority ground vehicle modernization plans. The service acquisition plan, advanced through a large-scale Army deal with BAE Systems, calls for the most modern Bradley M2A4 and M7A4 vehicles. These newest Bradleys are part of a strategic push to bring the Bradley platform into a new era with advanced computing, digital processors, long-range sensors and a range of new weapons applications. Space, Weight and Power considerations, as Army developers describe it, are an indispensable element of the calculus informing Bradley modernization; this means managing things like weight, mobility, on board electrical power, ammunition storage space and electromagnetic signatures as they pertain to vehicle protection and firepower. Essentially, some survivability enhancements needed to counter threats in Iraq wound up maxing the Bradley’s weight and on-power capacity. For instance, Army developers explain that equipping the Bradley with new suspension, reactive armor tiles and APS can increase the vehicle weight by as much as 3,000-pounds. In order to address this, the Army decided to execute a series of Engineering Change Proposals for the Bradley, specific technical adjustments to the platform designed to bring a host of new capabilities and enable faster and more seamless integration of emerging systems and technologies. Givens explained that the newest Bradley A4s include upgrades to the engine and transmission, cooling system modification, electrical system upgrades and introduction of vehicle diagnostics. “These improvements buy-back lost mobility, as well as create margin to allow future technologies to be hosted on the platform. As an example, none of the Active Protection Systems currently being explored by the Army could be installed on the A3 Bradley due to its shortage of electrical power. The A4 corrects this shortcoming,” she added. More on-board power can bring the technical means to greatly support advanced electronics, command and control systems, computing power, sensors, networks and even electronic warfare technologies. The A4 configuration also upgrades the Bradley engine and transmission, Alicia Gray, BAE Systems Combat Vehicles spokeswoman, told Warrior Maven. Designed to be lighter weight, more mobile and much better protected, emerging Bradley A5 lethality upgrades already underway as part of a plan to build upon improvements with the A4. These improvements include integrating 3rd Generation Forward Looking Infrared sensors for Commanders and Gunners sights, spot trackers for dismounted soldiers to identify targets and an upgraded chassis with increased underbelly protections and a new ammunition storage configuration, Army developers tell Warrior. read more: https://goo.gl/PwAQ3V subscribe: https://goo.gl/1DpcZe
MILITARY EQUIPMENT ACQUISITIONS UNDER THE DUTERTE ADMINISTRATION
 
04:35
MILITARY EQUIPMENT ACQUISITIONS UNDER THE DUTERTE ADMINISTRATION It is now time to start a new running blog of the acquisition of weapons and equipment for the modernization of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) after the new administration of President Rodrigo Duterte started signing contracts for them. This will be a continuation of my other blog about similar acquisitions by President Benigno Aquino Jr. or PNoy.[1] ’Blog Rules’ I will be following the same “House Rules” or “Blog Rules” from my previous blog about PNoy’s acquisitions, which is first is that I want the news to be confirmed by a MAJOR news organization or a reputable website before I consider it. “Major” meaning a registered news organization like “GMA7”, for example, or “ABS-CBN”, etc. Or websites like the “Official Gazette of the Republic of the Philippines”, etc. Second, I am looking for as much DETAILS as possible for the purchases, like how many were bought, for how much, from what company, estimated delivery dates, etc. More often than not there has been a couple of Press Releases about supposed acquisitions with very little details afterwards whether they did push thru or not. So if I see only one news item with little visibility about what happened afterwards, then I am not going to consider it. This means I am going to CONSERVATIVE about what to list here, I want to note down only those that has actually been delivered, or at least have good visibility about their delivery dates, or that I find the details to be more or less complete. Hence there will be a number of stated acquisitions that will not be noted down here. Alternatively, if an acquisition that has been listed below but did not push thru, it will be removed. As stated above, this will be a “running” blog which will be regularly updated as better information becomes available. https://rhk111smilitaryandarmspage.wordpress.com

About the Navy's Large Plans To Generate Amphibious (BAE SYSTEMS)
 
05:00
The Marine Corps has selected an old BAE tank maker more than SAIC early to build the new Amphibious Combat Vehicle. A carrier of wheeled troopers capable of swimming from Navy ships to shore and then driving deep into the interior, the ACV will replace the aging, ungainly, and under-armored AAV as the spearhead of amphibious assault. The ability to make such landings is the raison d'être of modern Marines - but that is questionable, even by the Senate, in this era of long-range missiles. The preliminary contracts announced today are only $ 198 million for the first 30 vehicles, to be delivered in the fall. 30 will come next year, with Initial Operational & Evaluation Tests (IOT & E) and the decision to go to the Fully Produced Levels by 2020. Overall, Marine officials told reporters that they want to replace about 870 AAVs with ACVs "as fast as we can," which will take to "mid to late 20s. "The current budget plan assesses the first 204 vehicles at $ 1.12 billion. The winner of BAE Systems is the international giant, the eighth largest US defense contractor and the third largest in the world. Among many other things, he built and upgraded the carriers of M2 Bradley and M109 Paladin howitzer, both heavily tracked vehicles, at his factory in York, Pennsylvania. BAE or its predecessor company has built every Marine amphibious armored vehicle since amtracs from World War II. SAIC, on the other hand, started out as a consulting and services company, renowned for its engineering expertise. It branched out during the Iraq War to work on MRAPS, a basically good-looking truck. Its Charleston, SC facility installs high-class military equipments such as electronics in other company vehicles and enhances AAVs existing in the Marines. So the ACV wheels are SAIC's first landing into a full-sized armored combat vehicle and into manufacturing, making it a more risky option for the Marine Corps. SAIC, in a statement, said meanwhile "disappointed ... we are committed to growing this line of business" - but the failure here is a bad omen for the offer of other SAIC armored vehicles, to build a Cell Tracker Tracker tracked by the US Army (MPF ) light tank. Regardless of their differences, the two companies offer 8 × 8 vehicles that are essentially the same. Both started with foreign designs, because the US is the world leader in armored vehicles that are tracked but not in wheeled vehicles. BAE collaborated with IVECO Italia (the world-renowned Fiat subsidiary) to offer variants of the SuperAV / Freccia / Centauro family in Italian service since 1991. SAIC partnered with ST Kinetics Singapore to offer Terrex enhancements belonging to the Singapore army. (For comparison, the main 8 × 8 armored fighting vehicles already existing in US service, none of them amphibians, are LAV Sea and Stryker Army, both are descendants of Swiss Miran Piranha). The most obvious difference: BAE vehicles can carry two more infantry. While the two vehicles have a crew of three on the front - the driver, gunner, and commander - BAE can carry 13 complete soldiers behind, while SAIC can only carry 11. Since the current naval squad is 13 people, and the future of the squad will shrink to 12 (including drone operators), which may be detrimental to SAIC. Source: update.ph.

Land Acquisition problems in UP, so IAF looks at other bases to station Rafale fighter

02:59
Land problems in UP, so IAF looks at other bases to station Rafale fighters The Indian Air Force (IAF) is set to shelve plans to base the under-procurement 36 Rafale fighters at Sarsawa, near Saharanpur in Uttar Pradesh, because of problems of land acquisition near the airbase. The IAF has begun scouting for alternative airbases to house the two squadrons of its most modern fighter aircraft. “Yes, there is a problem with land acquisition at Sarsawa. We need some additional space which we are unable to get there. Other airbases are being considered by us,” a top military officer confirmed to The Indian Express. Sources said the IAF needed an additional 540 acres of land in the vicinity of the air force station, which would have meant protracted negotiations with nearly 3,200 land owners. There is no possibility of using the land on the other side which is being used by the Special Frontier Force, a special force raised after the 1962 Sino-Indian war, for its own airborne training programme. The process of negotiations with the landowners, sources said, will take time while the construction of infrastructure facilities has to start at the earliest since the first Rafale fighter is supposed to be in service in the IAF in September 2019. The full complement of 36 Rafale fighters will be in service by April 2022. The IAF currently has only 33 fighter squadron against an authorisation of 42, and two squadrons of Rafale are critical to managing the shortfall. Asked about the alternative sites for the Rafale base, the officer said: “No country places its top strategic assets close to the border. We are also looking at suitable options.” Sources said Suratgarh, Bihta and Ambala are currently being considered as alternative airbases for the French fighters. A frontline airbase in Rajasthan, Suratgarh is close to the Pakistan border, while Bihta airbase is near Patna in Bihar. Ambala in Haryana is a fighter base with adequate availability of land, which currently houses Jaguars and MiGs. Under the Rs 59,000-crore deal signed by India with France last September, Dassault Aviation is contracted to construct infrastructure at the airbase for the 36 fighters. This makes it incumbent upon the IAF to finalise the airbase at the earliest. These French fighters are also likely to be used by the IAF as strategic delivery platforms for aerial delivery of nuclear weapons. That role is currently performed by French Mirage-2000 fighters, which will move out of service in another decade. Source: Indian Express

The Future of Philippine Military Modernization Under Duterte : What’s on the Second Horizon?
 
05:33
The Future of Philippine Military Modernization Under Duterte: What’s on the Second Horizon?, This week, the government of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte moved toward allotting funding for the next phase of the country’s ongoing military modernization program. While plans have been long in the works and changes can continue to be expected along the way, the development nonetheless provides an opportunity to evaluate where Manila is with respect to key capabilities and where it might be headed over the next few years. As I have noted before in these pages, Philippine defense modernization had been laid out in the Revised Armed Forces of the Philippines Modernization Program (RAFPMP), divided into three phases or horizons: the first lasting from 2013 to 2017, the second lasting from 2018 to 2022, and the third from 2023 to 2027. As Duterte took office, observers were looking to see how his time in office would affect the longer-term trajectory of that modernization process not just in terms of the aggregate level of spending, but also what security challenges and equipment would be prioritized. Last week, we saw another round of headlines surrounding the Second Horizon of Philippine military modernization. On June 20, reports surfaced following defense department spokesperson Arsenio Andolong’s comment that the Duterte government had allocated roughly 300 billion pesos ($5.6 billion) for this phase of military modernization as an initial amount pending budgetary review and negotiation. The news itself is not surprising. Reports had emerged last year as well about the Duterte’s government’s plans for the Second Horizon, including potential changes that could be made in terms of prioritization of challenges and procurement of equipment. The confirmation of funding thus represents a continuation of an ongoing and expected process. And despite the focus on the fact that this was a robust amount of funding, the reality is that any aggregate level of funding also leaves the real questions unanswered. One is what will actually be procured with that funding. As is typical with these phases, the crux of military modernization will come not with the funding levels approved, but how the AFP reconciles its ideal shopping list with the actual amount provided and how it then sequences and prioritizes acquisitions. We already do have a sense of the key items originally on the wish list for military modernization, including multirole fighters, helicopters, and long-range patrol aircraft for the Air Force; frigates, corvettes, and submarines for the Navy; and multiple launch rocket systems, weaponry, and night-fighting equipment for the Army. But as we have seen in the past, this list has tended to be changed over time, whether that means reducing the number of certain equipment bought or postponing other acquisitions and even fast-tracking others. One example in this respect is submarines, an expensive item which was initially slated for the Third Horizon but could now be procured under the Second Horizon. Another question is how what is actually being budgeted and procured actually affects the bigger picture of Philippine defense modernization more generally. While the process of military modernization was intended to ideally see Manila transition from internal security operations to territorial defense, that has been slowed somewhat by both the new administration’s own focus on internal priorities like counterinsurgency, alignment shifts in terms of defense partners, as well as periodic crises and structural challenges. Though Philippine defense officials have at times been candid about the effects of these developments on the process of military modernization, the actual extent to which that is the case will become clear once we get more details in the coming months. While the headlines on Philippine military modernization may suggest it is a linear trajectory of improvement through a process neatly divided into phases, the reality has been far messier thus far and will likely continue to be so for the foreseeable future.

The M27 Rifle Is One Amazing Firearm and Why the Marines Love It
 
10:02
Why the M27 Rifle Is One Amazing Firearm and Why the Marines Love It The Commandant of the Marine Corps was so impressed by the performance of the M27 in testing and the Marines’ confidence in it that he ordered Marine Corps Systems Command to purchase the Approved Acquisition Objective and fully field the weapon. There was no secret conspiracy to somehow subvert the JCIDS process or the Federal Acquisitions Regulations and cause the Heckler & Koch M27 IAR to become the USMC Service Rifle. Here’s the reasons that this is the rifle our Corps needs now, and at the right price: The M27 operates (and appears to the enemy) just like the M4, allowing our current cradle-to-grave combat marksmanship training continuum to “plug-and-play” with all the weapons in the Fire Team. Also, enemy snipers and other personnel may be less likely to identify the Automatic Rifleman — that’s a good thing. The M27 has proven to be extremely durable when compared to the M16A4 and M4. For example, when using M855 ball, the M27 barrel and bolt may last over 35,000 rounds before requiring maintenance/replacement. The M4 barrel and bolt (locking lugs) may last upwards of 10,000 rounds under extreme use before requiring replacement. Current (newest recipe) M855A1 cartridges reduce these endurance numbers, respectively. The M27 has suffered some M855A1 teething issues. These issues were resolved in all the rifles. The M27 has proven that it can sustain a round fired through a fully water-filled bore without damaging the weapon, and as important, the M27 can continue to fire without issue after this event. The M16A4 and M4 have proven incapable of safely firing a round through a water-filled bore. A Reconnaissance Man might care about that and for that matter, the root of the word “Marines” has something to do with water.

BIG POWERFUL !!! US Military Paddle Boat Ship Tank Truck thingy another fun toy for the Military

New concept for the US Marine Corps A potential replacement for the Marines' 20-year-old air cushioned ship-to-shore craft has foam runners and a massive payload. Officials with the Marine Corps Warfighting Lab, in conjunction with the Office of Naval Research, conducted a technical assessment earlier this month with a half-scale version of the Ultra Heavy-Lift Amphibious Connector, a high-tech craft being developed as an option to replace the Landing Craft Air Cushioned as a vehicle to bring troops, vehicles and gear ashore. The UHAC has also been discussed as a replacement for the Landing Craft Utility, another Navy ship-to-shore connector, but Warfighting Lab officials said they were especially interested in how the UHAC stacked up against the LCAC. The Navy's LCACs traditionally deploy with and operate from amphibious well deck ships and often transport Marines to and from shore as part of training or Marine Expeditionary Unit deployments. Unlike the LCAC, which acts as a hovercraft with an inflatable skirt, the UHAC has air-filled tracks made out of foam that can propel it through the water and on land. The footprint of the UHAC is significantly larger: 2,500 square feet of deck area to the LCAC's 1,800. But this means the UHAC can handle a much larger payload. While the LCAC can carry 65 tons of gear, the UHAC can handle 150 tons, or 190 with an overload payload. Capt. James Pineiro, Ground Combat Element branch head for the Warfighting Lab's Science and Technology Division, said the UHAC would be able to carry three main battle tanks ashore, at some 60 tons apiece. Another advantage to the UHAC, Pineiro said, is its range: 200 nautical miles to the LCAC's 86. And unlike the LCAC, when the UHAC arrives onshore, it can keep on going, thanks to low pressure captive air cells in the tracks. At about a pound per square inch, the UHAC can cross mud flats and tidal marsh areas. And the tracks can crawl over a sea wall of up to 10 feet, he said — all important features during a beach assault. "You could look at the amphibious invasion of Inchon, during the Korean War," Pineiro said. "there were significant mud flats there, and a 26-foot tide difference. At low tide it went a couple of miles out. That was a problem during the invasion of Inchon." Where the UHAC does come up short is in water speed. Because of the drag created by the foam tracks, it can only travel at 20 knots, half the speed of the LCAC. But Pineiro said he anticipated that mission commanders would be able to work around this drawback. "When you get into planning ops, you kind of plan for your capability," he said. Officials with the project said the concept for the UHAC originated in 2008, with a goal to design an amphibious vehicle with low PSI. The Office of Naval Research accepted a concept design for the vehicle from the company Navatek, Inc., and the project has been in development since then, with the construction of a half-scale demonstrator and an at-sea demonstration in 2012. The half-scale model is still massive at 42 feet long, 26 feet wide and 17 feet high. It was in Honolulu in early March to complete a limited technical assessment to demonstrate its capabilities. The test, Pineiro said, involved launching the UHAC from a simulated ship's well deck with an internally transported vehicle aboard. The UHAC brought the vehicle to the shore and then returned to the ship, he said. The assessment is preparation for a larger demonstration of the UHAC's abilities at the Advanced Warfighting Experiment, also in Hawaii, that will take place in conjunction with the international exercise Rim of the Pacific 2014 this summer. "We want to make sure the UHAC can perform," Pineiro said. Future steps following this summer's experiment remain unclear as testing continues. But according to the Marines Seabasing Required Capabilities Annual Report for 2013, published in December, product managers with ONR are working with Defense Department agencies to secure funding for continued development. "Development of a full-scale technology demonstrator is a possibility," the report said. Amid budget cutbacks, one feature is sure to catch the eye of acquisition officials: because of the technology involved in constructing and operating a UHAC, ONR estimates per-unit production and maintenance costs would be less than half that of an LCAC, officials with the project said. The Navy began purchasing its 91 LCACs in the early 1980s at per-unit costs ranging from $22 million to $32 million, or between $45 and $75 million with inflation adjusted.

TALL TALK, ZERO ACTION ON BUYING GUNS, WARPLANES
 
06:14
Into its final year in office, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s BJP-led NDA government has started the process of buying assault rifles and carbines for the Indian Army and 110 jet fighters for the Indian Air Force. And it has revived the Defence Research and Development Organisation’s Science and Technology Management Council under the chairmanship of principal scientific adviser K. Vijayraghavan, and the DRDO director-general’s powers to sanction projects has been increased from Rs 75 crores to Rs 150 crores. These initiatives are not the sign of a ruling party that is resolved to keep the armed forces in a state of battle-preparedness. They show that this government is turning back to the tried-and-trusted method of arms acquisition by shopping abroad and of strengthening the DRDO, the home-spun R&D wing with all the attendant faults. The government has been in more ways than one dithering on the all-important issue of buying arms and equipment for the armed forces, and this despite the ruling party’s chest-thumping jingoism. Is it a classic case of tall talk and zero action on a crucial issue? It is true that India does not have a war on its hands, either with Pakistan or with China, despite the fact that the hawks in the BJP may desire a war with Pakistan while avoiding one with the more powerful China, but it does not mean that the needs of the armed forces can be put on hold or that the government can afford to dilly-dally over the matter. The government has been literally caught on the wrong foot because it was in a reverie of how to make India strong and mighty while neglecting the immediate needs of the defence forces. Prime Minister Narendra Modi came in with new and grand idea of wanting to make guns, tanks and planes at home under the “Make In India” initiative, and he and his think tank — if there is any at all — had been toying with the idea of creating a strong private sector capable of participation in the armaments manufacture sector. It seems that neither Mr Modi nor his advisers were aware that India cannot become a sophisticated manufacturer overnight, and that it will take a long time before it is in a position to do so. In its anxiety and desire to do things, the government has failed to think and plan, which is the way to go forward. The Congress-led UPA government of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had literally dragged its feet in the matter of buying advanced fighter planes. The process began in 2005 and it reached a tentative end when France’s Rafale was chosen, and it was decided to buy 126 Rafale fighter jets. But the contract was not finalised. When he visited France in April 2015, Prime Minister Modi made the impromptu announcement about buying 36 Rafale fighters off the shelf. It seemed that here was a Prime Minister who wanted things get done and cut through the bureaucratic red tape. It was a deceptive move. What the Prime Minister seemed to have had in mind was to scrap the deal altogether, and try and build the sophisticated fighter plane in India. It was a folly and nothing else. And now the Modi government is going back looking to buy a jet fighter built abroad, and it has gone back to the same big six manufacturers who were in the bidding game in 2005. The clock has literally moved back. The conditionalities might seem new, where India would buy 15 per cent of the planes off the shelf, and the remaining 85 per cent are to be manufactured in India with an Indian private sector collaborator. It might take another decade to work out the solutions to this demand which satisfies the government, the Indian private sector and the foreign manufacturers. It is a well-known fact that the Indian private sector is a novice in matters of armaments, whatever the ambitions and desires of the Prime Minister and the captains of Indian industry. The example of the United States, and earlier that of the Soviet Union, shows that manufacture of armaments is closely related to scientific and technological breakthroughs, and it presupposes a strong research and development base.

Space Militarization: "America's Space Power" 1997 US Air Force
 
20:33
Missiles playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLECC3BE1B25F14233 On the militarization of space, which is asserted to be inevitable. Public domain film from the US Air Force, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied. The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Militarisation_of_space The militarisation of space is the placement and development of weaponry and military technology in outer space. The early exploration of space in the mid-20th century had, in part, a military motivation, as the United States and the Soviet Union used it as an opportunity to demonstrate ballistic missile technology and other technologies having the potential for military application. Outer space has since been used as an operating location for military spacecraft such as imaging and communications satellites, and some ballistic missiles pass through outer space during their flight. As yet, however, weapons have not been stationed in space, with the exception of the Almaz space station and small handguns carried by Russian cosmonauts (for post-landing, pre-recovery use)... Early American efforts included the Nike-Zeus Program, Project Defender, the Sentinel Program and the Safeguard Program. The late 1950s Nike-Zeus program involved firing Nike nuclear missiles against oncoming ICBMs, thus exploding nuclear warheads over the North Pole. This idea was soon scrapped and work began on Project Defender in 1958. Project Defender attempted to destroy Soviet ICBMs at launch with satellite weapon systems, which orbited over Russia. This program proved infeasible with the technology from that era. Work then began on the Sentinel Program which used anti-ballistic missiles (ABM) to shoot down incoming ICBMs. In the late 1950s United States Air Force considered dropping an atomic bomb on the Moon to display U.S. superiority to the Soviet Union and the rest of the world (Project A119). In 1959, a feasibility study of a possible military base on the Moon (Project Horizon) was conducted. In 1958, a plan for a 21-airman underground Air Force base on the Moon by 1968 was developed (Lunex Project). The Safeguard Program was deployed in the mid-1970s and was based on the Sentinel Program. Since the ABM treaty only allowed for construction of a single ABM facility to protect either the nation's capital city or an ICBM field, the Stanley R. Mickelsen Safeguard Complex was constructed near Nekoma, North Dakota to protect the Grand Forks ICBM facility. Though it was only operational as an ABM facility for less than a year, the Perimeter Acquisition Radar (PAR), one of Safeguard's components, was still operational as of 2005. One major problem with the Safeguard Program, and past ABM systems, was that the interceptor missiles, though state-of-the-art, required nuclear warheads to destroy incoming ICBMs... In 1983 American president Ronald Reagan proposed the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI), a space-based system to protect the United States from attack by strategic nuclear missiles. The plan was ridiculed by some as unrealistic and expensive, and Dr. Carol Rosin nicknamed the policy "Star Wars", after the popular science-fiction movie franchise. Astronomer Carl Sagan pointed out that in order to defeat SDI, the Soviet Union had only to build more missiles, allowing them to overcome the defense by sheer force of numbers... United States Space Command (USSPACECOM), a unified command of the United States military was created in 1985 to help institutionalize the use of outer space by the United States Armed Forces... Military space operations coordinated by USSPACECOM proved to be very valuable for the U.S.-led coalition in the 1991 Persian Gulf War. The U.S. military has relied on communications, intelligence, navigation, missile warning and weather satellite systems in areas of conflict since the early 1990s, including the Balkans, Southwest Asia and Afghanistan... USSR The Soviet Union was also researching innovative ways of gaining space supremacy. Two of their most notable efforts were the R-36ORB Fractional Orbital Bombardment System (FOBS) and Polyus orbital weapons system. The R-36ORB was a Soviet ICBM in the 1960s that, once launched, would go into a low Earth orbit whereupon it would de-orbit for an attack. This system would approach North America over the South Pole, thereby striking targets from the opposite direction from that to which NORAD early warning systems are oriented. The missile was phased out in January 1983 in compliance with the SALT II treaty. The SALT II treaty (1979) prohibited the deployment of FOBS systems...

Agile Acquisitions 101: The Means Behind the Magic
 
01:37:20
This seminar will feature examples of where agile acquisition has been successfully implemented in the Federal Government. The lessons learned, success stories, and the opportunity to question the trailblazers themselves should give everyone a great foundation to begin. There is a lot of talk about Agile - but what is it, and why are new procurement methods and strategies needed to successfully implement it? Agile Software Development is a mindset that requires a completely new way of thinking about an entire development process from the moment a need is identified through execution. In order to procure for these types of services, it is important to understand what Agile is and what it is not, what the risks are in the process and how they are mitigated, and what value & success look like. Traditional procurement methods for “waterfall” software implementations lack the flexibility to take advantage of the benefits of time, schedule, and cost that Agile Software Development methods can bring to the Federal Government. For this reason, the acquisition workforce needs to make its processes agile using innovative and creative solutions to procure these services while maintaining compliance with the FAR and Federal Law. This seminar will identify several methods and strategies that have been and can be applied to achieve this goal.
Three Reasons Why US Doesn't Want India to Buy Russia's S-400
 
07:26
This video shows you that Three Reasons Why US Doesn't Want India to Buy Russia's S-400. While India is pushing ahead with the purchase of S-400 Triumf, Russia’s cutting-edge air defense system, the US has a number of reasons to blow a fuse over the deal, Rakesh Krishnan Simha, New Zealand-based journalist, foreign affairs analyst and military observer, told Sputnik. Speaking to Sputnik, Rakesh Krishnan Simha, journalist, foreign affairs analyst and military observer has explained why Washington is deeply displeased with New Delhi's acquisition of the Russian-made S-400 air defense system. "Widely acknowledged as the world's most powerful anti-aircraft and anti-missile system, the S-400 is a development of the S-75 missile that famously shot down the American U-2 spy plane over Russia in 1960. Its potency is the reason why countries like China, India, Turkey and Saudi Arabia are lining up to buy the missile defense system. With a tracking range of 600 km; the ability to destroy hostile aerial targets at a range of up to 400 km and altitude of 30 km at a blistering speed of 17,000 km an hour, the S-400 is a truly lethal air defense weapon," Simha emphasized. However, the US has signaled that it does not welcome the S-400 deal inked by Moscow and New Delhi in 2016. "There is a lot of concern in the US, in both the administration and the Congress, over the S-400 system," Chairman of the US Arms Service Committee Mac Thornberry told the press in late May as quoted by The Hindu. "There is concern that any country and not just India that acquires that system will complicate our ability to work towards interoperability together." According to the media outlet, Thornberry added that these concerns "were separate" from Washington's sanctions imposed on the Russian defense industry under the "Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act" (Public Law 115-44) (CAATSA) in August 2017. Earlier, US lawmakers protested against Ankara's acquisition of the Russian-made air defense system. Their wrath was understandable given Turkey's NATO membership. Besides, American policymakers believe that simultaneous exploitation of S-400 and US-made F-35 stealth fighter jets by Turkey may expose both secret capabilities and vulnerabilities of the new warplane. However, India is not a NATO member-state and has no appetite for procuring Lockheed Martin's F-35. So, what's the fuss about then? According to Simha, there are several reasons for it. S-400 to Further Strengthen Russian-Indian Defense Ties :: "The S-400 is a rare example of a non-nuclear missile that is virtually a strategic weapon. Such mega deals bind the seller and buyer into a strategic embrace for the life of the weapon. Considering the longevity of Russian air defense missiles (in the 1990s the Serbians shot down a US stealth fighter with a 30 year old Russian SAM), the S-400 could remain at the heart of India's missile defense network for decades. Since the US is attempting to pry away India from its defense partnership with Russia, the S-400 is one of the top obstacles to the US plan," the military observer underscored.

US Military BIG POWERFUL ARTILLERY Live Fire Exercise
 
02:21
US Army put on a show of force with artillery live fire exercise. The United States Army (USA) is the main branch of the United States Armed Forces responsible for land-based military operations. It is the largest and oldest established branch of the U.S. military, and is one of seven U.S. uniformed services. The modern army has its roots in the Continental Army which was formed on 14 June 1775,[4] to meet the demands of the American Revolutionary War before the establishment of the United States. The Congress of the Confederation officially created the United States Army on 3 June 1784[5][6] after the end of the Revolutionary War to replace the disbanded Continental Army. The army considers itself to be descended from the Continental Army and thus dates its inception from the origins of that force.[4] The primary mission of the army is "to fight and win our Nation's wars by providing prompt, sustained land dominance across the full range of military operations and spectrum of conflict in support of combatant commanders."[7] The army is a military service within the Department of the Army, one of the three military departments of the Department of Defense. The army is headed by the Secretary of the Army, and the top military officer in the department is the Chief of Staff of the Army. The highest ranking army officer is currently the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. During fiscal year 2011, the Regular Army reported a strength of 546,057 soldiers; the Army National Guard (ARNG) reported 358,078 and the United States Army Reserve (USAR) reported 201,166 putting the combined component strength total at 1,105,301 soldiers.[3] Mission[edit] The United States Army serves as the land-based branch of the U.S. Armed Forces. §3062 of Title 10 US Code defines the purpose of the army as:[8][9] Preserving the peace and security and providing for the defense of the United States, the Commonwealths and possessions and any areas occupied by the United States Supporting the national policies Implementing the national objectives Overcoming any nations responsible for aggressive acts that imperil the peace and security of the United States After the September 11 attacks, and as part of the Global War on Terror, U.S. and NATO forces invaded Afghanistan in 2001, displacing the Taliban government. The U.S. Army led the combined U.S. and allied Invasion of Afghanistan in 2001, and Iraq in 2003. In the following years the mission changed from conflict between regular militaries to counterinsurgency, resulting in the deaths of more than 4,000 U.S service members (as of March 2008) and injuries to thousands more.[23][24] 23,813 insurgents[25] were killed in Iraq between 2003--2011. The lack of stability in the theater of operations has led to longer deployments for Regular Army as well as Reserve and Guard troops.[citation needed] The army's chief modernization plan was the FCS program. Many systems were canceled and the remaining were swept into the BCT modernization program.[citation needed] In response to Budget sequestration in 2013 the army is planned to shrink to a size not seen since the WWII buildup.[26] The 2015 expenditure for Army research, development and acquisition changed from $32 billion projected in 2012 for FY15, to $21 billion for FY15 Structure[edit] Main article: Transformation of the United States Army The United States Army is made up of three components: the active component, the Regular Army; and two reserve components, the Army National Guard and the Army Reserve. Both reserve components are primarily composed of part-time soldiers who train once a month, known as battle assemblies or unit training assemblies (UTAs), and conduct two to three weeks of annual training each year. Both the Regular Army and the Army Reserve are organized under Title 10 of the United States Code, while the National Guard is organized under Title 32. While the Army National Guard is organized, trained and equipped as a component of the U.S. Army, when it is not in federal service it is under the command of individual state and territorial governors; the District of Columbia National Guard, however, reports to the U.S. President, not the district's mayor, even when not federalized.

DEFENCE POLICY IN DOLDRUMS
 
05:00
Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s weakness for grandiose plans has been a defining characteristic of his nearly four-year-old government. The latest one, though modest compared to Digital India, Skill India et al, is the Defence Planning Committee (DPC) to be headed by National Security Adviser Ajit Doval. The task of the committee is to prepare doctrines to define military objectives, look after military and security strategy, prepare capability plans and speed up defence equipment acquisitions. It is an impressive agenda, and it is to be assumed that it was announced in the last lap of the government’s five-year term because the government wonks had been working at it at least for the last three years. It would be useful to recall that former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee had set up what was called the National Security Council (NSC) with the then national security advisor Brajesh Mishra as its head. It was a three-tier structure comprising the National Security Advisory Board and the Strategic Policy Group. Apart from this, there was the Joint Intelligence Committee, which was part of the government’s general security policy architecture. It would be churlish to question the usefulness of these arrangements. The proposed arrangement of the Modi regime seems to be more oriented towards keeping the armed forces in the loop of overall strategic policy, and it could supplement, rather than supplant, the Vajpayee set-up of the NSC. What is worrying is that despite claims, the Modi government has been quite tardy in responding to the needs of the armed forces, especially armaments and equipment. The unfinished Rafale deal serves as a good example. The Indian Air Force (IAF) has been looking to acquire a medium multi-role combat aircraft for more than a decade. The government and the IAF seemed to zero in on Rafale, the French fighter jet. When Modi took over, it seemed he had other plans in his mind. So, on his visit to France in April 2015, it appeared that he made this peremptory announcement keeping in mind the urgency to boost the diminishing strength of fighter planes in the IAF. It turns out that he wanted to keep the options open and did not want to be tied down to the Rafale deal which not quite sealed. That was fair enough. Every government has the right to review the decisions of the predecessor and make its own choice. But the Modi government does not seem to have made clear its choice. It has not found an alternative to Rafale. It can be justifiably argued that if the previous UPA government spent two terms in office without arriving at a definite conclusion, Modi government cannot be faulted for still pondering over the alternative to the Rafale. The BJP as a good right-wing party would not be averse to creating the “military-industrial complex” – a pejorative term by none other than former US president Dwight Eisenhower, a general and a conservative to boot, but it seems to recognise that it does not have the wherewithal to create it. And it does not have the intellectual honesty to admit that the Indian industry as it exists today cannot do it. The idea that Indian firms should get into production arrangements with foreign arms manufacturers seems pragmatic and it could serve as a stepping stone. But it remains to be seen whether countries with advanced armament technology would be willing to share it with India. The Indian private sector can hope to play a key role in the defence ancillary manufacturing as it is already doing something in the aeronautic and space technology segments. The conviction has taken root in the Indian establishment that the country cannot become a global power unless it is also a military power. China has already understood the proposition and it has been working at it for more than four decades now. India has a lot of catching up to do if it wants to pursue the option of making its own arms, and not depend on others. The Indian strategic community is rather a timid one.

Are We Setting Aside Enough For Defence Equipment?
 
03:33
This video shows you that Are We Setting Aside Enough For Defence Equipment. Defence is one of five ministry allocations being discussed in the Lok Sabha this year. For 2017-18, the defence allocation is Rs3,59,854 crore. This is 17% of the total central government budget, making it the largest allocation among central ministries. According to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, in 2015 China spent about 2% of its gross domestic product (GDP) on defence ($215 billion), while Pakistan spent about 3% ($10 billion). In comparison, India spent 2% of its GDP, or $51 billion, on defence. Expenditure skewed toward revenue items In 2017-18, about 75% of the defence budget comprises revenue expenditure, which includes payments on salaries, pensions and stores (e.g., ammunition, spares and fuel). The remaining 25% is capital outlay—expenditure on defence equipment, machinery, weaponry, vehicles, aircraft, naval fleets and land. The share of capital expenditure has come down from 33% in 2011-12, to 25% this year. Underspending of capital allocations Trends in defence expenditure indicate that defence services are not able to fully spend the capital allocations. However, their revenue expenditure overshoots budgetary allocations. This could be because salaries and pensions are committed liabilities of the government that cannot be defaulted on. Further, about 90% of the allocations for capital acquisitions are spent on committed liabilities. Committed liabilities are payments made toward acquisition contracts signed in previous years. This leaves only a small part of the budget for planning new purchases in a given year. The issue There are significant shortages in defence equipment. For example, the Defence Acquisition Council has projected a need for 198 vessels and submarines for the navy by 2027, compared to the current strength of 121 vessels and 15 submarines. The air force has estimated the current need at 45 fighter squadrons, while it has 33. Will the current budgetary allocations be enough to ensure the preparedness of India’s armed forces? The trends in defence expenditure seem to suggest otherwise. army indian, defence news, defense news, india defence, indian air force, indian air force planes, indian armed forces, indian army, indian army join, indian army news, indian army strength, indian defence news, indian defence news latest, indian military, indian military news, indian navy, indian navy ships, indianarmy, join in indian army, latest defence news, latest indian defence news ====================================================================================================== DISCLAIMER: The facts in the video are totally based on the facts reported in various news agency hence Global Conflict is not responsible to any side-effect of the video.

SYRIA|TWO YEARS OF RUSSIAN INTERVENTION|Tu-22M3|su25|su23|su34|Tu-95|KALIBR MISSILE|MI-24 Hind|Su-30

SYRIA |TWO YEARS OF “RUSSIAN INTERVENTION” |Tu-22M3|su25|su23|su34|Tu-95|KALIBR CRUISE MISSILE| MI-24 Hind | Sukhoi Su-30sm When Russian aircraft were first spotted at the Hmeimim airbase in Syria, the initial stunned Western reaction, due to the failure of intelligence agencies to anticipate or predict this major operation, soon gave way to predictions Russia was involving itself in an unwinnable quagmire that would surely end in humiliating defeat. Two years later, even though the final outcome of the war in Syria is still unclear, and in spite of the human and material losses suffered by Russian forces in that conflict, it is clear the operation was a remarkable success in both military and political terms. The most visible aspect of Russia’s aid to the Syrian government has been the steady parade of new or modernized weapons systems on various battlefields in that country. This war was the baptism by fire for the Su-34 tactical bomber, the Su-30SM and Su-35 fighters, and a means to test the modernized older aircraft. Heavy bombers of the Long-Range Aviation also mark, striking enemy targets with both bombs and advanced Kh-555 and Kh-101 cruise missiles. Operations in Syria gave Russian Aerospace Forces the opportunity to test its ability to sustain a relatively high sortie rate over a prolonged period of time, rotate most of its aircrews through the theater of war, and also explore the strengths and limitations of its reconnaissance and target acquisition systems necessary to fully exploit the strike capabilities of its aircraft. Other branches of service have also had a similar opportunity to test equipment in demanding wartime conditions. The ongoing modernization of Russia’s tank fleet and the final development of the T-14 and other members of the Armata family will no doubt benefit from the experience gathered with the T-90 and T-72B3 MBTs in Syria where, unlike their Aerospace Forces brethren, they actually had to face modern weapons in the form of TOW-2A ATGMs supplied by the US and its allies to a variety of jihadist formations. Finally, the Navy’s contributions included corvette-, frigate-, and submarine-launched Kalibr cruise missile strikes, and the somewhat less impressive sortie of the Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier to the Mediterranean during which it lost two aircraft to accidents. Collectively, the use of a wide range of hardware in the Syrian conflict not only exposed the strengths and weaknesses of its weapons systems, it also raised the attractiveness of Russian weapons on the international arms markets. Russian weapons have been once again proven themselves to be rugged, dependable, and effective. For example, while the world has now seen burned-out hulks of M1 Abrams and even Leopard 2 MBTs dismembered by internal explosions, the T-90 has demonstrated considerable resilience against modern AT weapons. And even weapons that did not have to fire a shot, like the S-400 air defense systems, demonstrated they can hold US and NATO airpower at bay. Somewhat less visible are the doctrinal changes brought about by the experience gained during fighting in Syria. This conflict may be viewed as a blueprint for future proxy conflicts between the growing number of nuclear-armed powers fought by a mix of professional soldiers and irregular militias backed by airpower and cruise missiles. Moreover, the war in Syria reinforced the trend evident in earlier conflicts, namely the polarization of warfare into the two extremes of lightning war of maneuver in a low force-density environment, and grinding urban warfare decided not by technology but by preponderance of foot soldiers backed by brute firepower.

India’s defense manufacturing brings New possibilities to Israel
 
07:01
The Indian government has accelerated efforts to modernize and enhance the operational capabilities of its defense forces. This year, the nation’s defense budget is projected to show growth of 7.81%. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has said the government will also bring out an industry-friendly defense-production policy for 2018 aimed at promoting indigenous production by the public and private sectors, including micro small and medium enterprises, or MSMEs. After opening up private investment and liberalizing foreign direct investment (FDI) in defense production, the government plans to establish defense industrial corridors in the country, with the first to be built in the Tamil Nadu state. In the last three-and-a-half years, a number of Indian states have replicated the model of the biennial investors’ Vibrant Gujarat summit in order to attract global investment and industries in their states, which is crucial for the development and job creation. A number of global investor summits have taken place, including GIS Madhya Pradesh, Resurgent Rajasthan Partnership Summit, Momentum Jharkhand, UP Investor Summit, Happening Haryana, North East Investors Summit, Invest Karnataka and Sunrise Andhra Pradesh Investment Meet. This year started with Bengal Global Summit, Advantage Assam and Magnetic Maharashtra. For the first time, Indian states are launching policies to ease business regulations and promote indigenous defense manufacturing. A few days back, the Maharashtra government approved a defense and aerospace production policy. The state government will create Rs 1,000 crore (approximately $150 million) in initial working capital to the small-to-medium enterprises, or SMEs in those sectors. Under its defense and aerospace policy, the government plans to establish “defense hubs” at Pune, Nagpur, Ahmednagar, Nashik and Aurangabad. The state will offer financial concessions and incentives to develop indigenous defense technologies and to establish “anchor units” to build an ecosystem for defense MSMEs. Other states such as Uttar Pradesh and Tamil Nadu are also drafting their aerospace and defense manufacturing policy too. The Uttar Pradesh government is planning to develop defense manufacturing clusters in the state. Encouraging the start-ups and SME participation in the indigenous defense manufacturing is a key priority of the Defense Ministry. On January 16, the Defense Acquisition Council, chaired by Defense Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, announced a revised and simplified “Make II” procedure, in which some special provisions are given to MSMEs. The Ministry, in cooperation with the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry, or FICCI, has launched a platform called “Society for Indian Defense Start-ups,” or SIDS, as an institutional-support mechanism for development and funding of defense start-ups. THE DPSUs and Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) labs will also collaborate with FICCI to nurture the MSMEs with the relevant expertise. For the first time, a number of Indian defense start-ups have made their presentations before the defense minister. Such initiatives reflect the government’s readiness to give Indian defense start-up and SMEs a much-needed push. The Government e-Marketplace (GeM) is one of the bold steps of the Indian government. The GeM (launched in 2016) aims to transform the way in which procurement of goods and services is done by government ministries and departments, PSUs, autonomous bodies, etc. This platform has a great potential to support “Make in India” drive, MSMEs, and indigenous defense manufacturing process. On January 30, its upgraded GeM 3.0 version was launched. The GeM 3.0 would offer standardized and enriched catalogue management, a powerful search engine, real-time price comparison, template-based bid and RA creation, demand aggregation, e-EMD, e-PBG, user rating, advanced MIS, analytics and more.

Trump's Budget Explained
 
05:03
I don't really know what this budget is meant to do aside from raise military spending dramatically while keeping spending almost exactly the same as it is now. It's remarkable how close they kept the actually dollar amount spent. The Bloomberg article below has the best look at some of the individual programs that are being cut. When looking through sources you might see that different organizations have different numbers for how much has been cut. Different organizations have counted differently. Some don't include the mandatory spending in the number (mandatory spending can increase, but there's no way to stop it from increasing.) I'm bummed about a lot of this budget. A ton of NASA's Earth Science (which is both efficient and valuable) is being scrapped. So many programs that help people who need it, especially the after-school and educational assistance programs. It will be interesting to see how the fight goes in congress.

Why India Needs The Akash M!ssile?
 
08:43
Why India Needs The Akash M!ssile? Amongst the holiest cows in our cow-loving land is the notion of defence indigenisation -- which means designing, developing, and manufacturing our own weapons and defence systems, as major powers all do for strategic and economic reasons. Successive Indian governments, especially the present one, have paid lip service to indigenisation in public and in Parliament. But to illustrate how much more needs to be done, there is the example of the Akash m!ssile system, which already defends Indian airspace. The Akash consists of a Rohini radar that detects incoming aircraft at ranges out to 120 km and relays the information to a command post. This categorises and priorities the threats and orders a well-positioned m!ssile launcher to shoot down specified targets. Meanwhile, a 'command guidance' radar locks onto the target and guides one or more m!ssiles onto the aircraft. The Akash has already demonstrated it can shoot down enemy aircraft, flying at treetop height, at ranges out to 25 km. The simple and robust Akash was designed and developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation under the Integrated Guided M!ssile Development Programme. The IGMDP was initiated in 1983 under A P J Abdul Kalam when it became apparent that international technology denial regimes left India with no choice but to build its own m!ssile systems by developing sophisticated technologies such as rocket propulsion and inertial navigation. The highly successful project birthed the Prithvi and Agni ballistic m!ssiles that underpin India's land-based nuclear deterrent; the Nag anti-tank guided m!ssile and the Akash m!ssile. While ballistic m!ssiles are privileged children whose acquisition is guided by strategic considerations, and the Nag is only now coming to fruition, the defence ministry is sorely mistreating the Akash. Consider the m!ssile production ecosystem that the Akash has created. After the DRDO developed the Akash's foundational technologies, two defence public sector undertakings -- Bharat Electronics Ltd and Bharat Dynamics Ltd -- have functioned as 'systems integrators' that put the entire system together. Numerous private sector companies, notably Tata Power (Strategic Engineering Division) and Larsen & Toubro, have developed crucial sub-systems like the m!ssile launchers; while 330 smaller private firms feed into the Akash's production as Tier-2 and Tier-3 vendors. sams, surface to air, air defence, army air defence, surface 2 air, air defence system, defence system, air surface, russian air defence system, air defense systems, russian defence system, best air defence system in the world, russian air defense, ada, defence force, world defence news, air defender, pakistan defence news, sam battery, military defence ====================================================================================================== DISCLAIMER: Each and every content used in this video is not imaginary.

USA Armed Forces To Attack Inside North Korea
 
04:54
US Army’s war-gaming is under-resourced, three-star says The U.S. Army will likely rely heavily on experimenting with concepts in order to better define future weapons systems requirements for a force that will be expected to operate across multiple domains against peer adversaries. And Lt. Gen. Michael Lundy, the director of the Army’s Combined Arms Center at Fort Leavenworth, told Army Under Secretary Ryan McCarthy during a trip to the Kansas installation last week that the service is “way under-sourced” when it comes conceptual experimentation. Part of the CAC’s role is to war-game concepts to help Training and Doctrine Command shape and write requirements that will lead to materiel solutions. The Mission Command Battle Lab within the CAC is designed to experiment with emerging concepts and technologies to mitigate risk to the force. Lundy stressed it is important to wear concepts out to better define requirements so that program managers can build better solutions. “I need battle labs to get good requirements,” he said. Without the experimentation process, requirements can spiral out of control or be unrealistic. For example, Lundy said the process allowed the Army to realize it didn’t need a future helicopter to go 300 knots. By extensively experimenting with a variety of concepts based on anticipated operations and anticipated capabilities of adversaries, the service realized it only needed something that could fly at 220 knots. If the Army hadn’t done that experimentation, it could have potentially proceeded down a road to develop a faster helicopter, which could have required technology that doesn’t exist, is too costly or is far from ready for prime time — elements that contribute to program delays, cost overruns or cancellations. As the Army looks to prioritize six major modernization efforts in the near term, concept experimentation will be a vital part of the process at the outset and down the road. The six modernization priorities are Long-Range Precision Fires, Next-Generation Combat Vehicle, Future Vertical Lift, the network, air-and-missile defense, and soldier lethality. The Army is standing up what it’s calling the Futures Command to move those modernization efforts through the acquisition process, from beginning to end, to address the reality that the service will be expected to operate in contested environments, something to which the force is not accustomed, having spent 15 years in counterinsurgency operations in the Middle East. The CAC will also be vital in ensuring efforts across the board align with the Army’s Multi-Domain Battle concept now driving the service’s doctrine, technology development and acquisition priorities, training, logistics, and sustainment. McCarthy told Defense News on the trip to Fort Leavenworth that there has been an increase in fiscal 2018 and fiscal 2019 funding for experimentation when it comes to prototyping — a materiel standpoint. But he said he “absolutely” planned to go back and look at what is needed for experimenting specifically with concepts after meeting with Lundy. The Army will consider resourcing conceptual analysis and experimentation as part of the FY20 five-year funding plan now being created, McCarthy said. The FY19 five-year plan was released earlier this month. McCarthy added it might be necessary to work with Congress to reprogram dollars to ensure what is needed is synchronized across the five-year period. Funding the experimentation is important, he said, “because if you get the concept right, you can work out the technological trade-offs as you go downstream in weapons development.” McCarthy noted that the discussion with Lundy about the need for more resources to conduct robust conceptual experimentation was “one of the most profound things” they talked about on the trip and was something he intended to “work on personally.
Indian defence ministry approved all funds relating to biggest projects  of defence

100 Barak-1 Missiles and Equipment to destroy underwater mines cleared by DAC The defence ministry on Monday approved arms procurement proposals worth over Rs 860 crore, which include additional Israeli Barak-I missiles for Indian warships as well as European equipment to defuse or destroy underwater enemy mines. Chairing the high-powered defence acquisitions council (DAC) for the first time since he took over the additional charge of the defence ministry on March 13, finance minister Arun Jaitley directed officials to expedite clearance of several pending military modernization proposals after reviewing them. The clearance for the procurement of over 100 more Barak-I missiles for around Rs 500 crore comes ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's impending visit to Israel in July, which will be the first by an Indian PM since bilateral diplomatic relations were established in 1992. As was earlier reported by TOI, India in February has also cleared a Rs 16,830 crore project between DRDO and Israel Aerospace Industries to develop the next-generation Barak-8 medium-range surface to air missile (MR-SAM) systems for the Army. This project follows the two similar DRDO-IAI programmes already underway for MR-SAMs for Indian warships (initial cost was Rs 2,606 crore) and IAF air defence squadrons (Rs 10,076 crore). Moreover, IAF is now also getting set to take part in its first-ever air combat exercise in Israel, which is called "Blue Flag", later this year. The procurement proposal for the additional Barak-I missiles, cleared by the DAC on Monday, is for the earlier version of the anti-missile defence systems fitted on 14 Indian warships after the 1999 Kargil conflict. While this system has an interception range of 9-km, the Barak-8 system has a kill range of 70-km against enemy aircraft, drones and missiles. As of now, the Barak-8 system has been fitted on the three new Kolkata-class destroyers. Israel is among the top three arms suppliers to India, notching up sales worth almost $1 billion every year. The acquisitions range from Phalcon AWACS (airborne warning and control systems) and Searcher, Heron and Harop UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) to Aerostat and Green Pine radars and several types of missiles & laser-guided bombs. Another big deal in the works is for two more Phalcon AWACS, which are to be mounted on Russian IL-76 military aircraft, to add to the earlier three already in service with the IAF and four more Aerostat radars for well over $1 billion. The other proposals cleared by the DAC include the Rs 311 crore purchase of "clip-on suites" to counter mines at sea, as also the procurement of "expendable bathy thermograph systems" under the foreign military sales programme from the US. The thermograph systems basically check temperatures at various water depths to ascertain the range of sonars meant to detect enemy submarines.

Shalom Revivo, Director, Sales and Marketing, IAI, told BusinessLine that the collaboration agreements “are based on the transfer of technology for the benefit of local production, as part of the Indian government’s Make in India policy.” Given the long, historical ties between IAI and India, and India being IAI’s “main strategic customer for 25 years”, he said it is the company’s intention to transfer a significant part of its UAV activity to India in the near future. This would bode well for the forces, with sources indicating that the Indian Army proposes to equip UAVs to its battalion, while the Air Force plans to have fully operational squadrons of surveillance UAVs. The Navy, too, has a huge demand demand for MALE and tactical UAVs.

The Fenestrelle Fortress Italy - Val Chisone | Drone Aerial Footage
 
03:08
Fenestrelle is a fortress overlooking Fenestrelle. It is the symbol of the Metropolitan City of Turin, Piedmont, northern Italy. It is the biggest alpine fortification in Europe, having a surface area of 1,300,000 m². The fortress, built by Savoy between 1728 and 1850 under the design of the architect Ignazio Bertola, guards the access to Turin via the Chisone valley. The territory was acquired in 1709 by the Duchy of Savoy (later known as the Kingdom of Sardinia) after the defeat of the French at fort Mutin (Fenestrelle). The history of modern fortifications in the Fenestrelle area, began in 1690, when the King of France Louis XIV appointed Nicolas Catinat as commander of the French Army against the Duke of Savoy’s Army during the Nine Years' War. General Catinat, better known in Piedmont for his victory at the Battle of Staffarda, the destruction of the Castle of Avigliana and the fire at the Castle of Rivoli, understood the danger posed by the Chisone Valley for the French Army and decided to build 3 small redoubts and a fort in the Fenestrelle area. More specifically, in 1694 Nicolas Catinat obtained the approval of Louis XIV to build Fort Mutin. During the War of the Spanish Succession, this imposing fortification was besieged in August 1708 by Victor Amadeus II’s troops and conquered in 15 days. At the end of the War of the Spanish Succession, France officially ceded Fenestrelle and the upper Val Chisone to the Duchy of Savoy as required by the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713. The treaty gave the Kingdom of Sicily to the Duchy of Savoy, making Victor Amadeus II the first king of the House of Savoy. For political reasons the Kingdom of Sicily was then exchanged with the Kingdom of Sardinia in 1720. Fort Mutin was restored, but Victor Amadeus II found it insufficient for the protection of the Val Chisone. So he instructed military architect Ignazio Bertola to design and build a complex of forts in Fenestrelle. They were connected by a 3 km long wall, an indoor staircase of 3,996 steps unique in Europe and an outside staircase of 2,500 steps. The construction began in the summer of 1728 and ended in 1793; then it started again in 1836, ending definitively in 1850. Besides Ignazio Bertola, other engineers and military architects worked at Fenestrelle; among them: Vittorio Amedeo Varino de La Marche, Lorenzo Bernardino Pinto (who was one of Bertola’s apprentices and also worked at the Fort of Exilles), Nicolis di Robilant and Carlo Andrea Rana. During the Napoleonic Era when Fenestrelle was again under the French influence, it was used as a prison by the French Empire: notable prisoners were Joseph de Maistre and Bartolomeo Pacca. The prison also held Pierre Picaud, whose story was the inspiration for Edmond Dantès, the main character in Dumas’s Count of Monte Cristo. The Kingdom of Sardinia locked political prisoners, Mazzini's supporters and common criminals in the fort, including the Archbishop Luigi Fransoni. In 1861, after the unification of Italy, some Kingdom of the Two Sicilies supporters (mainly soldiers, but the number is unknown) were put into the fort, which for some revisionist academics became a concentration camp. Several Garibaldi's and Papal States supporters were also locked up. After the Kingdom of Italy joined the Triple Alliance in 1882, the fort was upgraded. After 1887, it became the headquarters of the Fenestrelle battalion of the 3rd Alpini Regiment. After World War II, the fort was abandoned and left to decay, most of the available material being plundered. In 1990 a redevelopment action, guided by a group of volunteers, known as Progetto San Carlo (ONLUS) was started. In the 1999 it has become the symbol of the former Province of Turin and in 2007 the World Monuments Fund has included it among the 100 most important archaeological sites of the world. Il Forte di Fenestrelle, situato in Val Chisone (Piemonte), è costituito da tre complessi fortificati: il San Carlo, il Tre Denti e il Delle Valli, uniti da un tunnel al cui interno corre la scala coperta più lunga d'Europa, con ben 4.000 gradini. Possiede una superficie di 1.350.000 mq di compendio e una lunghezza di 3 Km distribuita su 650 m di dislivello.
