RAPID prototyping, MILITARY weapons, AIR force procurement, and DEFENSE procurement
The article reports that U.S. Air Force chief scientist Mica Endsley is proposing the rapid prototyping to address requirements issues that caused delayed programs and funding problems. Topics covered include the advantages of rapid prototyping in making changes before actual production of a weapon system and the concept the Air Force's Planning & Direction, Collection, Processing and Exploitation, Analysis & Production and Dissemination Experimentation (PCPAD-X)
RAPID prototyping, DEFENSE industries, and JOINT ventures
The article informs that 12 more organizations in Australia have adopted the Rapid Prototyping, Development and Evaluation Program (RPDE) of the Australian government. According to minister of defense material Jason Clare, RPDE is a joint venture of national defense, industries and academics to address the high risk and complex defense capability issues. The companies who have joined the program include Elbit Systems of Australia Pty. Ltd., Pilatus Australia Pty. Ltd., and Artis Group Pty. Ltd.
UNITED States. Congress. Armed Services Committees and DRONE aircraft
The article discusses the competitive prototyping effort of the U.S. Senate Armed Services Committees to bridge the Unmanned Carrier-Launched Airborne Surveillance and Strike (UCLASS) carrier-based drone and the Unmanned Combat Air System Demonstrator (UCAS-D) program.
TECHNOLOGICAL innovations, CONTRACT proposals, and RAPID prototyping
The article reports that the United States Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) Science and Technology (S& T) Directorate has established TechSolutions, a program designed to enable the nationwide community of first responders to let DHS know what their technological needs are. Through the program, the department can respond quickly to select proposals with development and prototyping efforts.
RAPID prototyping, BUSINESS planning, and BUILDINGS
The article reports on a building planned by Sikorsky for a Rapid Prototyping and Military Derivatives Completion Center at its Schweizer Aircraft subsidiary in Elmira, New York. The new center is a step in the long-range corporate strategy to increase capacity to meet the growing demand for military products. It will be branded the Sikorsky HAWK Works @ Schweizer Aircraft and be the primary completion center for all Black Hawk and Naval Hawk derivative aircraft-mostly for foreign customers.
MILITARY vehicles, DEFENSE contracts, and PUBLIC contracts
The article reports that the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) found no problem with the decision of the U.S. Army to waive the competitive prototyping requirement for the Armored Multi-Purpose Vehicle (AMPV) program, which was done by the army to reduce the cost and risk associated with the bidding process. Topics discussed include the reason defense firm General Dynamics protested the move of the Army and the idea behind competitive prototyping in terms of reducing technical risks.
The article reports that Australian Minister for Defence Materiel Jason Clare said the Rapid Prototyping, Development and Evaluation Program (RPDE) has been joined by twelve more Australian organizations. RPDE is the Australian government's effort to fix high risk and complex Defence capability problems. The program is a partnership among defense, industry and academic institutions across the nation.
MILITARY airplane design & construction, PROTOTYPES, INDUSTRIAL design, and ATTACK helicopters
The article reports that the U.S. Pentagon's acquisition chief Frank Kendall has asked the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to design a high performance aircraft that would lead to a working prototype to help maintain industrial design capacity. Kendall also expressed the possibility of an attack helicopter design prototype.
The article reports that 54 companies, academic institutions and government agencies have been selected to join the Rapid Prototyping Development and Evaluation Program (RPDE) of Australia. This was announced by Greg Combet, Australia's Minister for Defence Personnel, Materiel and Science, on October 20, 2009. He said RPDE now has a pool of 189 companies, universities and government agencies which can source the intellects to address Defence problems.
BUSINESS planning, MILITARY supplies, and RECONNAISSANCE aircraft
The article reports that Sikorsky plans a new 100,000 square-foot building for a Rapid Prototyping and Military Derivatives Completion Center at its Schweizer Aircraft subsidiary in Elmira, New York. The new center is a step in the long-range corporate strategy to increase capacity to meet the growing demand for military products. The new center also adds capacity for additional future military work and other special mission aircraft manufactured at Schweizer, such as the Fire Scout unmanned air system and fixed wing reconnaissance aircraft.
ANTI-submarine warfare, REMOTELY piloted vehicles, MILITARY aeronautics, and MILITARY vehicles
This article reveals that rapid prototyping of anti-submarine warfare (ASW) technologies and creating a stable industrial base are some of the key areas the U.S. Navy will pursue in 2006, according to the Chief of Naval Operations (CNO). Admiral Mike Mullen said ASW is a combined effort that will take technologies in the air, on the water and under the water. The Navy's Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Master Plan is also going to be a significant document for the service as it examines the investment strategy and future UAV needs, according to Mullen.
PROTOTYPES, MILITARY supplies, ARMY equipment, MILITARY weapons, and DEFENSE industries
The article reports on the predictions made by the U.S. Marine Corps' top equipment buyer that a nascent Pentagon policy requiring multiple, competitive prototypes in the early stages of large weapon-system programs will yield more cost and technological stability in the future. Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics John Young had said that for big-ticket programs the services must have two or more competing teams producing prototypes of "key system elements."
