Leidos, Paramount USA and Vertex Aerospace Enter Final Phase of Armed Overwatch Competition



(RESTON, Va.) June 11, 2021 – Leidos (NYSE:LDOS), a FORTUNE® 500 science and technology leader, announced today its team was selected to enter the final phase of the U.S. Special Operations Command’s (USSOCOM) Armed Overwatch aircraft prototype program. Leidos, Paramount USA, and Vertex were among five teams awarded a total of $19.3 million for prototype demonstrations and will advance Bronco II to the Phase III Operational Prototype Demonstration later this month.

The Bronco II is designed for ultimate mission flexibility. The aircraft’s unique internal Interchangeable Multi-Mission System Bay (IMSB) allows for a single airframe to be easily and rapidly re-configured to perform multiple roles (e.g. ISR, SCAR, FAC(A), CAS) incorporating high-performance sensors, network communication systems, precision weapons, an electronic self-protection suite, and mission planning systems.




“Our team combines decades of experience both integrating and manufacturing cutting-edge airborne solutions for the warfighter,” said Gerry Fasano, Leidos Defense Group president. “We are thrilled to have been selected to compete in the final phase.”

“We believe that Bronco II is the definitive next generation aircraft, which has been designed to be future proofed against evolving operational requirements in the asymmetrical battlespace specifically inhabited by SOCOM,” said Ivor Ichikowitz, Chairman of global aerospace and technology company, Paramount Group.

“Through our partnerships with Leidos, we are looking forward to building upon our 27-year legacy of designing and producing rugged technologically advanced systems. Our team has designed and developed an America centric platform for the world market, and we are looking forward to bringing Bronco II back to America.”

“Vertex has a 50-year legacy of supporting warfighter missions,” said Ed Boyington, President and CEO of Vertex Aerospace. “Vertex’s highly skilled employees will assemble the aircraft and provide the final systems support integration and launch the Bronco II for customer delivery from our Crestview, Florida facility. We are proud to be an integral part of this team.”

Já agora e datando de 2016:  :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Pela frente, um destacamento de um ano na Base Aérea de Natal, onde irá qualificar-se a voar no A-29 Super Tucano, da Força Aérea Brasileira, em missões operacionais e como Instrutor.

Isso mesmo nos confirmou o Cap. C. da Silva, com quem tivemos a oportunidade de conversar, nos últimos dias do seu destacamento em Natal: “fui colocado com uma dupla tarefa: por um lado avaliar o curso [CEOCA] relativamente ao que são as necessidades da FAP e por outro lado fazer a avaliação da aeronave A-29 poder realizar a missão que atualmente é feita na Esquadra 103 pelo AJet”.

Pelo visto o PT-ZTU (aquele ST que já esteve em Portugal) está em Lisboa desde o dia 21.

Pois então, realmente o FlightAware está em conflito com o FlightRadar.

De qualquer forma tem razão, o que faz mais sentido é que seja Alverca.

Airbus trials armed C295 gunship for persistent CAS

Airbus has flown an upgraded version of its armed C295 gunship that has been developed to provide persistent close air support (CAS).



The company announced on 20 June that the C295 Armed ISR, as the version is named, recently conducted flight trials with eight laser-guided missiles and two laser-guided bombs dummies, located on four underwing hardpoints. These initial trials were designed to validate the aircraft's mechanical and aerodynamic characteristics when fitted with such a weapons load.

“With the quality and safety of the modification ensured by Airbus as original equipment manufacturer, the C295 Armed ISR provides persistent surveillance with a diverse set of weapons for defensive and attack capabilities,” the company said, adding that it can carry out special operations missions, support ground troops, and neutralise targets detected during surveillance and patrol missions, and has a long endurance.

As noted by Airbus, the company signed a series of agreements with air-to-surface weapon suppliers at the Dubai Airshow 2017 to equip the C295. These agreements included a memorandum of understanding with Roketsan of Turkey and similar arrangements have been signed with Expal, Escribano and Equipaer of Spain, as well as Rheinmetall of Germany, and the US suppliers Nobles Worldwide and US Ordnance.

“Equipped with the last generation FITS [Fully Integrated Tactical System], the C295 Armed ISR incorporates different weaponry options available in kits that allow the operator to select the most appropriate option for their requirements: from machine guns, 27 mm autocannon, guided and unguided rockets, laser-guided missiles to laser guided bombs,” Airbus said.
