first_img View post tag: built India to Lease Second Russian-Built Submarine? Industry news View post tag: Navy Indian defense minister A.K. Antony announced during commission ceremony of nuclear-powered submarine INS Chakra (SSN Nerpa) that there was a proposal to take second Russian-built submarine on lease. According to him, the offer is being presently considered.The offer was made, but the decision has not been taken so far, Antony told reporters. Although he did not specify who had made that proposal, some sources say that did Russia several years ago. Certainly, the price is not a problem. According to Antony, India can afford it [the second submarine].Russian-built Project 971I nuclear-powered submarine INS Chakra is taken on lease for 10 years. The submarine and her 84-men crew arrived in India on April 31 after the 50-day long trip from Vladivostok.Indeed, India initially planned to lease two Akula-class nuclear submarines meant for Russian Navy. The contract was tied in 2003 and provided leasing of only one sub. Reportedly, the reason was high price. Overall contract cost is about $1 bln.[mappress]Naval Today Staff , April 06, 2012; Image: ssbn View post tag: lease Share this article View post tag: Russia View post tag: News by topic View post tag: INS View post tag: Chakracenter_img April 6, 2012 View post tag: India Back to overview,Home naval-today India to Lease Second Russian-Built Submarine?

ATG, USS Theodore Roosevelt Crew Train Together

first_img“The main reason we are undergoing the in-port TSTA process is for us to correct CART II (Command Assessment of Readiness and Training) discrepancies by holding certain training and drills, and to prepare us for TSTA I/II/III and FEP,” said Lt. Cmdr. Zavean Ware, the training officer aboard TR.During TSTA I/II/III and TSTA FEP, ATG will oversee numerous events including navigation drills, general quarters and man overboard drills, as well as underway replenishments and flight operations.“Every carrier undergoes TSTA before deployment,” said Ware. “TSTA phases are the processes that ramp us up and help us prepare for the final evaluation and ultimately our deployment next year.”USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77), currently deployed, is the most recent carrier to undergo TSTA. The ship scored more than 97 percent through more than 300 events.“We’re going to try to outdo the previous carriers on the East Coast,” said Ware. “The Rough Rider status is to be the best, and this is just part of the process to get us to the top. The key to accomplishing this is to stay focused and stay positive.”[mappress]Press Release, August 21, 2014; Image: US Navy Share this article View post tag: News by topic View post tag: USS Theodore Roosevelt View post tag: train View post tag: Naval View post tag: americas The Afloat Training Group (ATG), along with Sailors aboard the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71), conducted training August 4-8 during the in-port portion of Tailored Ship’s Training Availability (TSTA).

Indian first nuclear submarine Arihant ready for service

first_img View post tag: Indian Navy February 23, 2016 Having completed a set of deep sea diving drills and several armament firing tests, the Indian first indigenously-built nuclear submarine INS Arihant is now ready to join the fleet.Economic Times said officials affiliated with the project confirmed that the submarine was fully operational.Arihant is the first nuclear ballistic missile submarine to be built under the Advanced Technology Vessel Programme (ATVP). It was launched on July 26, 2009 at Visakhapatnam with sea trials scheduled for 2012. The sea trials, however, started only in 2015.The Times of India reported in August 2013 that the submarine’s 83 MW pressurized reactor had reached “criticality” which meant the 6000-tonne submarine was ready to go out to sea.Many private Indian companies were involved in the build. The hull was built by Larson & Toubro, one of the largest engineering and construction companies in India. Tata Power manufactured the sub’s control systems while Walchandnagar Industries delivered some of the steam turbine systems.The submarine will now be waiting for the official commissioning ceremony.

Raytheon, Kongsberg to build Naval Strike Missile in the US

Lawrence, Raytheon Missile Systems president. “We will assemble the missile and launchers in the same Raytheon factories where we produce many of the world’s most advanced missiles and other weapons systems.”Raytheon expects to perform final assembly, integration and test of NSM at the company’s Tucson, Arizona facility. Launchers would be manufactured at Raytheon’s factory in Louisville, Kentucky.With a range of more than 100 nautical miles, NSM is a long-range, anti-ship missile that provides strike capability against land and sea targets.Harald Ånnestad, President Kongsberg Defence Systems said: “Production of NSM in the United States will secure ramp up and sustainability of NSM, the world’s only Fifth Generation Naval Strike Missile with Land Target capabilities, for the US and our allies. Increased volume of NSM creates and secures jobs in both the US and Norway.”The two companies are also teamed on the development of the Joint Strike Missile and National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile Systems also known as NASAMS.

After more than 10 years of production, the agency’s current contract ends late next year with the final planned delivery of the 160th aircraft.“This delivery marks a monumental achievement for the DCMA and Boeing team supporting the warfighter,” said Navy Capt. Paul Filardi, DCMA Boeing St. Louis commander, as he climbed into the aircraft for its delivery flight.For the EA-18G, the agency’s program support began more than 10 years ago.“After 45 years of service, the Navy retired the EA-6B Prowler in 2015,” said Navy Lt. Cmdr. Daniel Bellinghausen, DCMA Boeing St. Louis alternate government flight representative. “With the introduction of the EA-18G in 2007, the Navy has moved on to provide the fleet with a more capable and lethal electronic warfare aircraft.”The Naval Air Systems Command describes the Growler as “a variant of the combat-proven F/A-18F Super Hornet Block II and will fly the airborne electronic attack mission. The EA-18G combines the capability of the combat-proven Super Hornet with the latest (airborne electronic attack) avionics suite evolved from the Improved Capability III system. The EA-18G’s vast array of sensors and weapons provides the warfighter with a lethal and survivable weapon system to counter current and emerging threats.”With production name “G-150,” the newly delivered aircraft will enter service with VX-31 as “Dust Devil 507” furthering platform testing and tactical development for the fleet.According to the unit’s website, VX-31provides aircraft, test pilots, project officers and flight test planning oversight for research, development, test and evaluation of current and future manned aircraft, weapons and weapons systems. The squadron earns its skyward nickname — Dust Devils — annually flying approximately 4,000 flight hours while employing unique test assets. VX-31 actively supports daily flight tests, ground tests and other data gathering activities.The Dust Devils, who are commanded by Navy Cmdr. Elizabeth Somerville, plan, execute, analyze, evaluate and report full spectrum developmental and integrated test of aircraft and weapon systems. It is an important mission that involves multiple aircraft including the Growler and Super Hornet.“The Navy’s fighter and electronic attack fleet is currently composed entirely of F/A-18 and EA-18 aircraft, cementing this production line as the backbone of much of the Navy’s fixed wing fleet,” said Bellinghausen.last_img read more
