    The Government Accountability Office has called into question President Obama’s Phased Adapitive Approach to missile defense in Europe. Lack of oversight and  poor management could cause cost overruns and uncertainty about the EPAA’s effectiveness against missile threats from the Middle East. “DOD has initiated multiple simultaneous efforts to implement [the European Phased Adaptive Approach missile defense plan], but faces three key management challenges—the lack of clear guidance, life-cycle costs and a fully integrated schedule,” the GAO reported

 

Without better management and oversight, the Defense Department’s missile defense plans in Europe face potential cost overruns and increased uncertainty about the system’s capacity to effectively counter missile threats from the Middle East, according to a Government Accountability Office report released Wednesday.

A National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) payload was successfully launched aboard a United Launch Alliance Delta IV Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle (EELV) from Space Launch Complex-6, Vandenberg Air Force Base (VAFB), California, at 1:10 p.m., PST, on January 20, 2011.


This is the third in a series of six launches that will take place during the 50th anniversary of the NRO. This is also the first Delta IV-Heavy mission to launch from VAFB, and is the third Delta IV vehicle to launch from United Launch Alliance’s Space Launch Complex-6.


“I’m grateful to everybody who worked so hard to make this mission happen, the launch team, the satellite vehicle team, and our mission partners. It is always a great feeling to have hard work culminate in success. When the satellite becomes operational, it will assure the US continues to enjoy superior vigilance from above,” remarked Col Alan Davis, Director of Office of Space Launch.


The NRO is a joint Department of Defense-Intelligence Community organization responsible for developing, launching, and operating America’s signals, imagery, and communications satellites to meet the needs of our nation.

REDONDO BEACH, Calif., Jan. 19, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Space Tracking and Surveillance (STSS) Demonstration program satellites are ready to fully participate in Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) tests after on-orbit calibration of the acquisitions and track sensors for both spacecraft was completed Nov. 3 by prime contractor Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE:NOC), and infrared sensor payload provider Raytheon Company (NYSE:RTN).

Calibration of those sensors was the last major step during the on-orbit tests of the space vehicles, which were launched Sept. 25, 2009, in tandem configuration from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla.

 

"We are confident that upcoming BMDS tests involving STSS will generate the kind and quality of data that will validate our projections of the value of space-based sensors for missile tracking," said Doug Young, vice president of Missile Defense and Warning Programs for Northrop Grumman's Aerospace Systems sector. He noted the data will validate models used to define an operational system. 

 

"STSS brings unique capabilities to missile defense. It's the only system capable of tracking ballistic missiles through all phases of flight, starting with boost extending through midcourse and terminal phases," Young added. "In 2010, the satellites demonstrated many capabilities essential to performing their missile defense role in initial exercises, such as tracking U.S. missile test launches. While those were not operational tests, they point to the potential applications of this satellite technology."

 

Using sensors capable of receiving infrared radiation, the STSS demonstration satellites are able to detect missile launches, provide continuous target tracking and communicate with missile defense command and control systems. The STSS Demonstration satellites will be integrated into MDA's overall testing strategy that calls for multiple missile defense elements to participate in each test event.

 

"Integrated tests involving multiple BMDS elements will provide opportunities for STSS to demonstrate a wide range of missile tracking capabilities geared toward decisions regarding required future operational systems capabilities," Young said.

 

These capabilities include boosting missile detection and tracking; midcourse object tracking and characterization; missile track handover between the two space vehicles; and interceptor cueing via downlink communications to the ground station.

SYRACUSE Programme: new order for Renault Trucks Defense

 

18.01.2014 army-guide.com

 

Renault Trucks Defense has signed with Thales a contract for supplying 21 units of vehicles type Premium, Midlum and Sherpa Light carrier dedicated to the tactical stations of the Syracuse III military satellite communications program. In 2009 Renault Trucks Defense has already sold 33 units of Sherpa light carriers. These new vehicles will be delivered in 2011.
