USAF to Award Sikorsky Contract for Combat Rescue Helicopter ....

 

The Air Force plans to award Sikorsky Aircraft Company a contract for a new combat rescue helicopter in the second quarter of Fiscal 2014, said USAF spokeswoman Erika Yepsen in a statement released Nov. 22.

“In response to our competitive combat rescue helicopter solicitation, we received one proposal. That offer, from Sikorsky Aircraft Company, has provided an acceptable technical solution and we intend to award a contract based upon budget availability,” said Yepsen.

However, she also noted the contract is “contingent on the outcome of the President’s budget review process.”

The announcement comes roughly one week after Acting Air Force Secretary Eric Fanning said it would be “very difficult” to make such an award given the lack of funding for new start programs.

Air Force spokesman Ed Gulick said the CRH technically is not a new start because it already appeared in the President’s Fiscal 2012 budget request.

Sikorsky spokesman Frans Jurgens said the company is “encouraged” the program “appears to be moving forward.”

He added, “Sikorsky and partner Lockheed Martin are ready to begin building a very affordable new-generation rescue capability based on the proven H-60M Black Hawk platform.”

The CRH will replace the aging HH-60G Pave Hawks, flown heavily in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Aldila del fatto che sono "merigani", sta idea di spendere fior di quattrini per introdurre in servizio un mezzo supersofisticato e con una logistica diversa per fare il "combat Sar" era inutile.

 

Sappiamo bene che negli ultimi 10 anni di piloti da salvare dietro le linee li abbiamo visti solo al cinema. Un derivato del Black Hawk aggiornato nell'avionica basta e avanza.

considerando che da dopo Desert Storm, ogni volta che si è effettuata una missione C-SAR, hanno chiamato i verdi, potrebbero anche appaltargliela in maniera definitiva :asd:

Stanno ancora aspettando ....

 

CSAR Salad ....

 

The Fiscal 2015 budget apparently offers no plan for a new Combat Search and Rescue Helicopter, Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James said Wednesday.

She told a Bloomberg defense budget symposium in Washington, D.C., that CSAR “is a priority” as well as “a sacred mission” to recover downed or stranded airmen, soldiers, and sailors alike.

However, “for 10 years, we’ve been talking about replacing this helicopter,” and she said it has yet to be determined what the right next step is.

“It’s a question of, ‘can we afford it, can we afford it now versus later, [or] is it better to do upgrades or buy new?’” she said.

However, the aircraft are old and in rough shape and “something’s gotta give,” she observed, adding that she’s “personally looking at this very hard.” CSAR is a priority, but “we have to rack and stack that priority with the others.”

MAJ. GEN. MARTIN: Well, actually in FY '15 there is no money in the budget, but there's enough money in FY '14 that will allow us to carry us through FY '15.

USAF e Sikorsky hanno fretta ...

The next generation of Air Force combat rescue is taking shape on a new Connecticut production line, where two development models of the HH-60W helicopter are undergoing final assembly ahead of flight testing late this year.
Sikorsky officials are confident in the progress on the helicopter, known in the factory as “Whiskey,” heartened by the Air Force’s budget request of $1.14 billion in Fiscal 2019.
The funds will help accelerate development and shrink the deployment schedule.
When the original $1.28 billion contract for engineering, manufacturing, and development for the helicopter was awarded in June 2014, it launched a 75-month program aimed at delivery on Sept. 26, 2020.
With the additional funding and progress made so far, Sikorsky is now executing a schedule that would bring the Milestone C production decision in the third quarter of 2019, and delivery in March 2020.
