area in conjunction with the US Army
Communications-Electronics Research,
Development and Engineering Center
(CERDEC) and the US Air Force Research
Laboratory (AFRL). The awards will be a
mix of budget category 6.2 and 6.3 funding, with total funding of approximately
$10.5 million per year over the three
years. The period of performance will
range from 12 to 36 months with an estimated project start date of January 2015.

US DESTROYERS RETROFITTED WITH
MK 59 DECOY
A "fly-away" team from Norfolk Naval
Shipyard (NNSY) has completed the first
MK 59 MOD 0 Decoy Launch System (DLS)

retrofit to a US Navy surface combatant
to meet an urgent operational need.
The DDG-51 Flight I guided missile
destroyer USS Ramage received the Mk
59 DLS fit in early December 2013 during a maintenance period at Souda Bay,
Crete. Pictures of Ramage show multiple
launcher pairs fitted on either beam.
The Mk 59 DLS is the US Navy designation for the floating RF decoy system procured from Airborne Systems in
2013 to address a rapid response effort
to provide a near-term, off-the-shelf
decoy capability for the fleet. The system is essentially similar to the Outfit DLF(3b) system already fitted to UK
Royal Navy warships.

In a single-source Justification and
Approval (J&A) statement released last
month, the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) revealed that the Chief
of Naval Operations (CNO) had, in October 2013, directed the installation of MK
59 DLS on two DDG-51 destroyers (these
being Ramage and a second as yet unidentified DDG-51 ship). It further noted
that initial systems installation had been
reprioritized to meet the CNO's directive.
General Dynamics Bath Iron Works
(BIW) was in November last year contracted to complete the second ship fit
on a sole-source basis. BIW was chosen
on the basis that it holds the DDG-51
planning yard and support contract, and
is lead activity for the fabrication of the
installation kit. It also provided technical oversight for the first installation
performed by NNSY.
NAVSEA's J&A document also stated
the intention to fit the Transportable
Electronic Warfare Module - Speed to
Fleet (TEWM-S2F) active electronic
countermeasures (ECM) system on the
two ships. The TEWM-S2F is a compact
ECM system derived from the TEWM
