12 Mar 20. Pentagon seeking 5G prototypes for smart warehouses. The Department of Defense is seeking 5G prototypes related to the development of smart warehouses, the National Spectrum Consortium announced March 12.
The department has released a Request for Prototype Proposals through the consortium and is looking for a variety of smart warehouse enabling 5G technologies to test at the Marine Corps Logistics Base in Albany, Georgia. The department has divided the prototype technologies its interested in into three broad categories: A 5G network, enhancements to that network, and applications enabled by that network. Here is how the National Spectrum Consortium explains it:
- 5G Prototype Testbed – The objective of this prototype project is to design and deploy a 5G network prototype that can serve as a reference implementation for Marine Corps smart warehouse operations.
- 5G Prototype Enhancements – The objective of this prototype project is to design and field prototype 5G network enhancements that can serve as reference implementations for Marine Corps smart warehouse operations.
- 5G Prototype Applications – The objective of this prototype project is to design and field prototype 5G enabled applications that can serve as reference implementations for Marine Corps smart warehouse operations.
The request is the first of four 5G RPPs the department is planning to release as it prepares to begin testing a variety of technologies at four military bases. The Pentagon has previously said that they plan to test 5G enabled augmented reality and virtual reality at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, dynamic spectrum sharing at Hill Air Force Base, and smart warehouses at Marine Corps Logistics Base and Naval Base San Diego.
The RPP is available to members of the National Spectrum Consortium, an acquisition vehicle created via a five-year, $1.25 billion Other Transaction Agreement by the Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense, Emerging Capabilities and Prototyping.
“This is the first of four proposals that the DOD has released. We encourage our membership, which is made up of traditional contractors and innovative startups, to collaborate and respond to these incredibly important RPPs,” said Joseph Dyer, chief strategy officer of the National Spectrum Consortium.

12 Mar 20. Low Supply, Old Ships Put Sealift at Risk, DOD Officials Say. The mission of U.S. Transportation Command is to move people and materiel globally over land, sea and air. Transportation is in high demand since about 85% of the force is stationed in the United States and that force often deploys, said Army Gen. Steve Lyons, commander of U.S. Transcom.
Lyons testified yesterday at a joint hearing of the House Armed Services Committee’s Subcommittees Seapower and Projection Forces and Readiness.
The National Defense Strategy states that the military must be able to project the force globally even if under persistent attack on the land, sea, air, space and cyber domains, he said.
“Today, I am confident in our ability to successfully execute our mission, but the risk is increasing,” he said, referring to the insufficient quantity and aging fleets of sealift vessels and aerial refueling tankers.
Mark H. Buzby, maritime administrator at the U.S. Maritime Administration, also testified and detailed the risks mentioned by Lyons.
MARAD operates the vessels that are part of U.S. Transcom. They include government-owned ships, U.S. flagged commercial vessels, and intermodal systems.
“This is an efficient and effective force for moving cargoes worldwide during peacetime,” Buzby said. “[But] I’m concerned about its ability to reliably project and sustain power globally in a contested environment. To address this, we must strengthen our sealift capability and reverse declines in the U.S.-flagged commercial fleet and U.S. shipbuilding and repair industry.”
To address these declines, recapitalization of the fleet is the top priority, he said, explaining that recapitalization includes surface life extensions for old vessels, acquiring and converting used vessels, and building new vessels in U.S. shipyards.
MARAD recently released a request for proposal for a vessel acquisition manager who will identify, purchase, modify and potentially operate these vessels, he said.
Another concern Buzby mentioned is the decline in domestic capacity to build and repair large commercial ships.
Of the seven large shipyards that existed several decades ago, three are now closed, one no longer does commercial work, and two perform conversion work only. Only one retains its ability to build large sealift ships, he said.
The number of vessels is slightly up, but it is nowhere near what it needs to be, he said. Last year, there were 81 ships in the commercial fleet. Today there 87, but that’s still down from the 106 ships available in 2010.
There’s a second related problem. “Due to declines in [the] U.S. flagged fleet, I’m concerned about our access to enough qualified mariners,” he added.
Navy Vice Adm. Ricky L. Williamson, deputy chief of naval operations, fleet readiness and logistics, also testified. The Navy purchases the vessels operated by MARAD.
Navy leadership is aware of the problems, he said.
“We are working hard to balance the needs of the sealift fleet with those of the combatants,” he said.
The sealift fleet transports 90% of war materiel globally and the combatants are warships such as destroyers, frigates and aircraft carriers.
“We haven’t made significant investment in a while,” he said. “We expect that investing now will yield returns of increased long-term readiness as we work to recapitalize the sealift ships.”
Air Force Lt. Gen. David S. Nahom, deputy chief of staff for plans and programs, also testified at the hearing. He mentioned modernization of the tanker fleet and some challenges of availability. (Source: US DoD)
12 Mar 20. Unifire wins special operational equipment bridge contract from US DLA. Mission Ready Solutions’ wholly owned subsidiary Unifire has secured a special operational equipment bridge contract from the US Defense Logistics Agency (DLA). The $4bn indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract (SPE8EJ-20-D-0014) was awarded to Unifire and five other companies under solicitation SPM8EJ-13-R-0001 with respect to the extension of DLA’s Special Operational Equipment (SOE) Tailored Logistics Support (TLS) contract.
Other companies that won the contract are Tactical & Survival Specialties, WS Darley & Co, Atlantic Diving Supply, Federal Resources Supply and Quantico Tactical.
Under the SOE TLS programme, which is developed and supported by the DLA, the US Military, US Federal Agencies, and other authorised customers can order brand-specific, commercial off-the-shelf part-numbered items through the six prime vendors.
Unifire president John Stone said: “This bridge will ensure seamless support for our war-fighters and we are focused and committed to our execution at the highest level.
“We plotted an ambitious roadmap for growth that began in 2019. This contract will be instrumental in the company’s efforts to obtain increasingly favourable capital facilities to secure further contract awards, fuel our growth trajectory and challenge our own sales objectives for the coming quarters.”
DLA will contact the prime vendors when a request is submitted for a specific product. Prior to responding to DLA with their best price and lead time, vendors will request a price quote from the manufacturers in their respective networks.
With this, the end-user will benefit from the vendor’s pre-established relationships and secure favourable pricing.
Mission Ready Solutions president and CEO Jeff Schwartz said: “We have the great fortune of working with some of the most proficient names in the government contracting industry, from Unifire’s accomplished sales team led by John Stone, to the top tier counsel directing the company’s pre-award protest initiative (which has been elevated to the COFC from the GAO), to many notable vendor partners helping to bring it all together.” (Source: army-technology.com)
11 Mar 20. Akima to provide logistics support to US Army FSB Fort Hood. Akima Support Operations has been contracted to provide logistic support services for the US Army Field Support Battalion (FSB) at Fort Hood Military base, Texas, US.
Intended to support US Army logistics missions, the contract includes a range of analysis, management, and operational functions such as materiel maintenance, supply services, ammunition services and transportation. The five-year cost-no-fee, cost-plus-fixed-fee, firm-fixed-price contract includes options, that will take its total ceiling value to $101.3m if exercised.
The contract has been awarded under the Enhanced Army Global Logistics Enterprise (EAGLE) programme. The services offered under the programme help military personnel prepare for missions. It is managed by the US Army Materiel Command.
Akima Facilities Solutions Group president Scott Rauer said: “This award further demonstrates the confidence that military customers have in the world-class logistics capabilities offered by the Akima portfolio of companies.

“We are excited to immediately provide value on this contract through our agility and our experience.” (Source: army-technology.com)
10 Mar 20. Wilson Perumal & Company Wins US Army ERP Strategy Contract. Wilson Perumal & Company (WP&C), a leading international management and strategy consulting firm, is pleased to announce that in the second half of 2019 it was awarded a contract to assess and advise the leadership of US Army Materiel Command (AMC) on the Army’s strategy for modernizing its Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems.
AMC is the primary logistical organization of the US Army, responsible for managing its global supply chain. The organization leads logistics and sustainment efforts at the strategic, operational, and tactical levels to ensure commanders have the materiel readiness to conduct global military operations. As it moves toward modernization of its operations, AMC currently faces key challenges associated with the complexity of its current ERP technologies and architecture. In the scope of this contract, WP&C will help AMC leadership assess the current state of Army ERP systems and recommend a workable strategy to guide technology design, execution, operations, and investment decisions.
“WP&C has a long history of successfully helping AMC improve the effectiveness and efficiency of its manufacturing and logistics operations. We are humbled and proud to be selected by AMC to assist with this important aspect of its mission,” said Dean Hamilton, WP&C’s Partner and Chief Technology Officer. “WP&C will help AMC develop its ERP modernization strategy by leveraging fast-moving technology advances (such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, robotic process automation, 5G networking, cloud computing, and the Internet of Things), while minimizing the introduction the non-value-add complexity that often creates significant risks for such projects. Our goal is to help AMC use its next-generation ERP systems to create greater business efficiencies, improve readiness and force stability, and deliver rapid, continuous capability improvements to the warfighter.”
WP&C believes complexity is the defining business issue of the modern age. Enterprises that can identify and successfully manage complexity are able to modernize effectively and dominate in their competitive arenas, while those that allow complexity to grow unmanaged find it increasingly difficult to compete. Furthermore, WP&C believes that a poor understanding of the undesirable technology complexities that can be introduced by critical business systems, such as ERP systems, frequently impairs the effectiveness of such systems. WP&C combines expertise in managing organizational and operational complexity, legacy and emerging technologies, and human factors to help clients thrive in today’s Age of Complexity.
“This award is evidence that we provide our clients a mix of capabilities that is unique and unmatched in management consulting,” said Andrei Perumal, WP&C’s Cofounder and Managing Partner. “We often hear how difficult it is to find competent, vendor-neutral, technology advisors who are also experts on complexity—add to this our firm’s in-depth knowledge of AMC’s business and our lengthy and successful track-record helping AMC improve operations in the organic industrial base, and we are a natural partner for AMC in this engagement.” (Source: PR Newswire)
10 Mar 20. First Ship-to-Shore Connector craft delivered to US Navy. Textron Systems delivered the first next-generation air cushion vehicle, Ship to Shore Connector (SSC), Craft 100, to the US Navy (USN) on 6 February, the company confirmed.
The craft completed acceptance trials in December 2019, the company said, after undergoing integrated testing to demonstrate the capability of its fly-by-wire steering, electrical, and propulsion systems.
The SSCs will replace the USN’s of Landing Craft, Air Cushion (LCAC) fleet, with a mission set to primarily transport weapon systems, equipment, cargo, and personnel through tough environmental conditions to the beach. The craft can travel at a sustained 35kt. The navy will continue to use Craft 100 as a test and training craft. (Source: Jane’s)
10 Mar 20. US Navy Says Ending Super Hornet Line Frees Up Resources for Life Extension Work. The Navy’s request to end the F/A-18E-F Super Hornet production line after 2021 instead of signing another multiyear production contract was not to save money, but rather to allow manufacturer Boeing to convert the production line from building new planes to overhauling old ones at a rate of 40 per year.
The Navy is managing a shifting fighter fleet, which today only sends fourth-generation Super Hornets on deployments but by next year will begin its transition into a blend of fourth- and fifth-gen fighters, once the first squadron of F-35C Joint Strike Fighters heads out with the Carl Vinson Carrier Strike Group.
Navy acquisition chief James Geurts said today that the best way to support the ideal mix of F-18s and F-35s was to stop buying Super Hornets after the current contract ends in Fiscal Year 2021 and to focus instead on getting as many as possible per year through the Service Life Modification (SLM) program. SLM not only adds thousands of flying hours to the planes’ lives but also upgrades them to the new Block III configuration with that adds stealth, range, weapons-carrying capacity and advanced connectivity.
“Most of the parts of the aircraft aren’t built on the production line, it’s assembly; so we’re going to see a large transference of that skill and expertise as we take airplanes apart and service life extend them,” he told USNI News after a House Armed Services tactical air and land forces subcommittee hearing, adding that he wanted the same experts that assembled new planes to re-assemble the older ones after they were taken apart for new components to be adding in for the life extension and capability upgrade program.
“And also part of that is modifying those from Block II to Block III aircraft. So we’re going to simultaneously extend the service life so we can get more flying hours and then greatly enhance the capability as we give them the full Block III capability. So essentially an airplane coming out of there is a Block III F/A-18E-F with lots of flying hours left, which is not much different than a new production Block III F/A-18E-F with a lot of hours left.”
Many of the Navy’s most controversial cuts in the FY 2021 budget request were driven by flat toplines and the Columbia-class ballistic missile submarine construction squeezing out other spending priorities – cutting one of two planned attack submarines in 2021 and cutting a planned Arleigh Burke destroyer in the out years were “strictly affordability” issues, Navy officials have said.
Geurts assured that the decision to end F-18 procurement earlier than previously planned – another multiyear contract had been written into earlier aircraft procurement plans, showing a buy of 36 jets from 2022 to 2024 – had nothing to do with money and everything to do with need.
“When we look at our fighter shortfall, we’re about 49 aircraft short. Between SLM and F-35 coming online – we’re adding F-35s into the fleet now – that fighter shortfall essentially goes to zero towards the end of the 2020s. And so, looking at that, we have to take a little bit of risk in between now and the end of 2020s; about 40 aircraft on a fleet of 800 is a manageable risk. Particularly if we keep our mission capable rate up. I think we added about 134 aircraft to the Navy inventory in our mission capable rate improvements this last year, so that’s another way” to increase ready jets available for training and operations, Geurts told USNI News.
During the hearing, though, the subcommittee’s chairman and ranking member expressed concern about stopping production, especially since the Navy’s replacement program, the FA-XX program, is still in early development.
“The Navy’s budget proposal removes 36 Super Hornet strike-fighter aircraft planned after fiscal year 2021 and begins shutdown of the F/A-18 production line beginning in 2023, increasing the Navy’s strike-fighter shortfall next year. Further, we need to understand what gives Navy leadership and acquisition officials confidence that terminating Super Hornet production 10 years before the next generation FA-XX strike-fighter, currently existent on just briefing slides, is prudent,” Rep. Donald Norcross (D-N.J.) said in his opening statement.
“Regarding Navy strike fighter management: This budget request removed 36 new production F/A-18 Super Hornets in the out-years that were originally planned for production in last year’s budget. Given the Navy’s current shortfall of 49 aircraft, I’m concerned that this decision is creating too much operational risk in the near term,” Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R-Mo.) said in her opening statement. Boeing’s F-18 production facility is in her home state of Missouri, but not in Hartzler’s district.
Geurts told the lawmakers during the hearing that he was confident the Navy would have enough jets ready to train and operate at any given time under this plan. The SLM process currently takes 18 months but will be reduced to 12 months once the work moves to a productionized setup on an assembly line, which can only happen if new construction stops.
The Navy is also sending feedback to the fleet to try to reduce the amount of work the Super Hornets will eventually need when they go through SLM. For example, the first couple Super Hornets showed up with more corrosion than expected, Geurts acknowledged at the hearing. The Navy is working with flight line maintainers to find ways to reduce the number of times panels and spaces on the planes have to be opened during routine maintenance, to minimize how much exposure the jets’ insides have to the elements and ultimately to reduce corrosion that will have to be addressed during their SLM process.
On the Marine Corps side, Deputy Commandant for Aviation Lt. Gen. Steven Rudder said during the hearing that the Marines are not facing a shortfall. In fact, now that the Navy has gotten rid of its remaining legacy Hornets and are operating just the Super Hornet, the Marines have been able to pick through the cast-aside planes and see which are in the best conditions for future operations.
“Since the Navy divested of their legacy Hornets, we actually have a lot of Hornets that we’re kind of sorting through to configure with the best of breed, the higher lot numbers if you will. We have 275; we need about 143 on the flight lines, so we have enough Hornets,” Rudder said.
“We have enough (AV-8B) Harriers, even though they’re down around 123. What the challenge for us is is the transition” to the F-35B and C variants and making sure procurement keeps up with the planned transition rate for squadrons.
The Marine Corps hopes to transition two Hornet or Harrier squadrons a year to the F-35, and they need to buy 20 new F-35s a year to keep up with this schedule. Given that lawmakers sometimes cut aircraft procurement to free up funds for other add-ins, or Pentagon or White House leaders make cuts to support other priorities outside the Marine Corps or Defense Department budget, Rudder said continuing at the 20-a-year procurement rate is the biggest risk to the service’s “ongoing in-stride transition” to fifth-generation aviation.

10 Mar 20. USAF to analyse Dyess and Ellsworth AFBs as B-21 basing alternatives. The US Air Force (USAF) is set to analyse two airforce bases (AFB) as basing alternatives for the department’s new B-21 bomber aircraft. The two AFBs are located in the US in Dyess, Texas, and Ellsworth, South Dakota. The service has issued a notice of intent to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the B-21 Main Operating Base 1 (Mob 1) bed down proposal. It includes two B-21 operational squadrons, a B-21 formal training unit (FTU), and a weapons generation facility (WGF).
The EIS will be prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969. It will evaluate the proposal’s potential environmental consequences to bed down the aircraft.
According to the USAF, MOB 1, MOB 2, and MOB 3 will be conducted for the B-21 bed down.
Six scoping meetings will be held in local communities surrounding Dyess and Ellsworth AFBs.
They will involve informing the public about the proposal, as well as soliciting comments and concerns from interested locals, state, and federal agencies and the public.
The EIS could focus on examining the land use impact, airspace, safety, noise, hazardous materials and solid waste, as well as physical, cultural and biological resources.
Furthermore, it could include investigating the impact on air quality, transportation, socioeconomics, and environmental justice.
Once selected, MOB 1 will support training on how to operate and maintain the B-21 aircraft.
MOB 2 and 3 locations will be selected once MOB 1 is finalised.
The Air Force Global Strike Command will operate the B-21, also known as Raider.
Designed to perform conventional and nuclear roles, the aircraft is expected to commence operational service in the 2020s.
The service has plans to acquire approximately 100 B-21 aircraft, which are being built by Northrop Grumman. In April 2019, the USAF selected Ellsworth AFB as the first location for B-21 Raider bomber and to serve as the formal training unit. (Source: airforce-technology.com)
05 Mar 20. WiSENT 2 as Tactical Bridge Layer. The Flensburger Fahrzeugbaugesellschaft FFG is developing a retrofit kit for the WiSENT 2 armoured engineer vehicle, which will give the tank the additional capability to launch tactical battlefield bridges.
For the launch process, only the excavator bucket is placed down using the hydraulic quick coupling of the excavator arm and exchanged for a bridge mount. This excavator arm/bridge interface remains on the bridge as a mobile kit after the launching process and is used for the later resumption of the bridge. The WiSENT 2 can carry and launch tactical short bridges in its role as bridge layer. A remotely controlled weapon station, if installed, can also remain on the vehicle during use as a bridge layer. After deployment, the WiSENT 2 is once again available as a fully-fledged armoured engineer vehicle. The retrofit kit is suitable for all WiSENT 2 that are configured as an armoured engineer vehicle with excavator arm. In addition to the hardware equipment, a software update for the operating software of the tank is necessary. It is intended to implement an automatic launch mode via the software.
At present, FFG is testing a 12-metre short bridge to optimise the processes and explore the limits of the concept. The aim is to complete development in time for the WiSENT 2 with its new bridge laying capability to be presented to the expert public at the Eurosatory 2020 armaments trade fair in Paris.
There is currently no customer order for the WiSENT 2 as a tactical bridge layer. However, Canada has invited tenders for the renewal of its entire battlefield bridge equipment, including short tactical bridges. The Canadian armed forces have therefore expressed great interest in the FFG solution for the use of WiSENT 2 as a bridge layer.
The Canadian Army was the launch customer for the WiSENT 2 armoured engineer vehicle and currently has 18 vehicles in operation. Other WiSENT 2 user nations within NATO are Norway (12 vehicles) and Hungary (5 vehicles). The United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Qatar also use WiSENT 2. (Source: ESD Spotlight)
09 Mar 20. US Navy awards Jacobs potential intelligent asset management contract. The US Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Atlantic has awarded Jacobs a potential eight-year, $418.9m contract for intelligent asset management. The contract terms include a 12-month base period and seven 12-month option periods. Work will start in April 2020.
Under the contract, Jacobs will provide base operating support (BOS) services at naval installations situated in Jefferson and Kitsap counties in Washington, referred to as West Sound (WSBOS). The company will offer improved operations and maintenance expertise for increasing infrastructure reliability and availability at several locations across the Commander, Navy Region Northwest. Jacobs will offer services in the areas of fire and emergency, facility management and investment, pavement clearance, utilities wastewater, base support vehicles and equipment, environmental and other services.
Jacobs Critical Mission Solutions senior vice-president Steve Arnette said: “The WSBOS contract allows us to deliver innovative IAM solutions across an expanded US Navy footprint, building on our ongoing success at the US Navy’s Mayport installation.
“We will deploy agile technical and management approaches across all elements of the WSBOS enterprise while making safety a priority in all that we do.”
Naval Base Kitsap is the host command for the navy’s fleet throughout West Sound to deliver base operating services. It hosts three classes of nuclear-powered submarines.
The base provides support for both surface ships and fleet ballistic missiles, as well as other nuclear submarines ported at Bremerton and Bangor.
In 2018, Jacobs Engineering Group was selected by the US Navy to support critical national defence mission operations at the Naval Facilities Engineering Command’s Southeast Base Operations Support I services in Jacksonville, Florida. (Source: naval-technology.com)
05 Mar 20. Airport Technologies to deliver snow clearing equipment to RCAF. Airport Technologies has secured a contract to deliver new runway snow clearing equipment for the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF).
The RCAF will use the equipment at six of its main operating bases. The airforce recently awarded two contracts for new snow clearing and deicing equipment to US-based Global Ground Support and Italian firm Fresia.
The three contracts form part of the Snow and Ice Control Capability Recapitalization project, which will replace equipment that is approximately 30 years old. The current equipment is soon set to stop operations.
All the three contracts will deliver two runway snow blowers, 27 runway snowplows, 28 towed runway sweepers, and nine aircraft de-icer trucks with an option for three more. A separate request for proposal includes three additional towed runway sweepers.
The contract for Airport Technologies is worth $24.6m while the contracts for Global Ground Support and Fresia are worth $8.1m and $8.9m respectively.
The first of the equipment is anticipated to be delivered in October 2020. It will be used at 3 Wing Bagotville and 14 Wing Greenwood.
Defence Minister Harjit S Sajjan said: “We will always provide the support and equipment that the women and men of our Canadian Armed Forces need. When the Royal Canadian Air Force is called upon for service, they respond. This investment will allow our members to safely do the challenging work we ask of them, no matter the weather.”
The RCAF’s main operating bases across the country offer air support to Canadian Armed Forces operations domestically and abroad, including search and rescue operations across Canada. It will also transport personnel and equipment across the world.
In another development, the Government of Canada is upgrading the RCAF fleet of 85 CH-146 Griffon helicopters. Following the refurbishment, the lifespan of the aircraft is expected to last until at least 2031.
