world repor t AIRBUS, HUNEED TECHNOLOGIES TEAM ON MISSILE WARNER FOR SURION Airbus Defence and Space (Ulm, Germany) has partnered with South Korea's Huneed Technologies Co Ltd (Songdo, Incheon) to provide the Republic of Korea Army's (RoKA's) new KUH-1 Surion Korean Utility Helicopter with a UV missile approach warner system. The two companies signed a KRW1.5 billion (US$1.32 million) production cooperation contract in late February. Under the cooperation agreement, Huneed Technologies will produce core electron- ics components of the Surion AN/AAR60(V) MILDS missile warning system, which is manufactured by Airbus. The KUH program was launched in June 2006 to meet the RoKA's requirement for a new utility helicopter to replace ageing UH-1H and 500MD types. Airbus Defence and Space has, since 2007, been awarded a series of contracts by the Korean MOD's Defense Acquisition Program Administration and Korea Aerospace Industries to develop and manufacture a MILDS-based missile warning system for Surion. For Airbus Defence and Space, the tie-up with Huneed Technologies meets a production contract offset obligation requiring a partnership with local industry. As part of the agreement, Huneed expects to extend its involvement to cover the manufacture of the complete missile warner production package to meet KUH offsets for both domestic and overseas customers after 2016. - R. Scott IN BRIEF The Journal of Electronic Defense | April 2015 24 ❍ Rheinmetall Defence (Düsseldorf, Germany) exhibited at the IDEX show in Abu Dhabi in late February, where it introduced two new payload options for its Multi Ammunition Softkill System (MASS) shipborne decoy equipment. The company has partnered with UK-based Airborne Systems to develop a new Offboard Corner Reflector (OCR) countermeasure, which is a fast-inflating, metallic mesh corner reflector. The OCR is deployed at range from a 102 mm rocket fired from a twin barrel set installed atop the main MASS launcher assembly. Measurement trials of the OCR payload were performed by the German Navy in 2014 from the K 130 corvette FGS Magdeburg. The system is due to complete qualification later in 2015. To address the emerging threat from millimeter-wave (mmW) radar seekers, Rheinmetall has introduced a dedicated Omni-Trap countermeasure. This contains chaff cut to three millimetric wavelengths between 34-40 GHz so as to create a broadband mmW response. ❍ Airbus Defence and Space has been contracted by Germany's Federal Office of Bundeswehr Equipment, Information Technology and In-Service Support (BAAINBw) to supply 36 VPJ-R6 vehicle counter-improvised explosive device (C-IED) jammers for vehicle protection. According to the company, the VPJ-R6 system uses ultra-fast responsive jamming technology to substantially enhance protection compared to conventional C-IED systems. Digital receiver and signal processing techniques enable reaction times of well below a millisecond to be achieved; up to 750,000 threat signals in all common frequency bands can be detected and jammed each second. ❍ The Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) graduated its first five aviators from the EA-18G training pipeline at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island on Feb. 27. The RAAF is slated to begin Growler operations in 2017, and it has been training ❍ ❍ ❍ ❍ with US Navy Growler squadrons, beginning with VAQ-129, the Navy's Fleet Replenishment Squadron. South Africa's GEW Technologies (part of Airbus Defense and Space) and Denel's newly established Integrated Systems and Maritime (ISM) division have formed an alliance to address future South African electronic warfare opportunities. Denel ISM will "manage the implementation of the agreement and drive the projects and programs that will form the core of its activities," according to a joint statement. Diehl BGT Defence (Überlingen, Germany) signed an exclusive teaming agreement with Orbital ATK (Woodland Hills, CA) that covers marketing and manufacturing of the AGM-88E Advanced Anti-Radar Guided Missile (AARGM) in Germany. The deal is aimed at supporting German manufacturing workshare should the Bundeswehr choose to procure the AARGM for use on Luftwaffe aircraft. France's Directorate-General of Armaments (DGA) has awarded a contract to Airbus Defence and Space for the first phase of an estimated €450 million (US$487 million) program to build and deploy three signals intelligence (SIGINT) satellites into orbit under the Capacité de Renseignement Electromagnétique d'origine Spatiale (CERES) program. Thales will develop the SIGINT payloads and Thales Alenia Space will provide the launch platform. The CERES program follows several years of evaluating the ESSAIM and ELISA demonstrators. The first CERES satellite is due to begin operations in 2020. Turkey's Aselsan has opened a new $157 million electronic warfare and radar production facility in Ankara. The plant will manufacture modules for radar and EW systems and is part of a national strategy to limit foreign content and technology transfer restrictions in its defense electronics systems. a
