Ancora a proposito della possibilità di una futura rimotorizzazione degli F-35 ... le alternative proposte da Pratt & Whitney ...

Cita:
Modifications Pratt & Whitney is proposing to its F135 engine can improve thrust and efficiency and would be far less costly than giving the F-35 fighter a new powerplant developed through the Adaptive Engine Transition Program, the engine maker said.
Jennifer Latka, Pratt & Whitney’s vice president for the F135 engine program, said the AETP technology is not compatible with the Marine Corps’ F-35B.
That would necessitate two different alternative engines for F-35.
The whole effort could add up to $40 billion over the 50-year life of the program, she said in an interview with Air Force Magazine.
The House version of the 2022 National Defense Authorization Act would require the F-35 Joint Program Office to pursue a strategy to incorporate an AETP engine into the F-35 fleet beginning in 2027.
Congressional sources said one of the goals is to drive down the cost of F-35 engines by creating a competitor to Pratt & Whitney.
GE, which is high on the AETP technology, is eager to offer its XA100 as an alternative.
Pratt, owned by Raytheon Technologies, has also developed an AETP engine, the XA101.

The U.S. Navy and Boeing have used the MQ-25TM T1 test asset to refuel a U.S. Navy F-35C Lightning II fighter jet for the first time, once again demonstrating the aircraft’s ability to achieve its primary aerial refueling mission.
This was the third refueling mission for the Boeing-owned test asset in just over three months, advancing the test program for the Navy’s first operational carrier-based unmanned aircraft.
T1 refueled an F/A-18 Super Hornet in June and an E-2D Hawkeye in August.
“Every test flight with another Type/Model/Series aircraft gets us one step closer to rapidly delivering a fully mission-capable MQ-25 to the fleet,” said Capt. Chad Reed, the Navy’s Unmanned Carrier Aviation program manager.
“Stingray’s unmatched refueling capability is going to increase the Navy’s power projection and provide operational flexibility to the Carrier Strike Group commanders.”

Ancora a proposito della possibilità di una futura rimotorizzazione degli F-35 ... la discussione continua ... e si prospetta che gli eventuali costi di sviluppo, integrazione e installazione del motore AETP sui velivoli in grado di riceverlo debbano essere a carico esclusivo dell'ente utilizzatore ...

Cita:
The Air Force would have to bear the full development and integration cost of putting new Adaptive Engine Technology Program engines in its F-35 fleet because the other services can’t fit the powerplants in their versions of the fighter, F-35 Program Executive Officer Lt. Gen. Eric T. Fick told reporters Sept. 15.
“If it’s a one-service, … unique solution, the cost of that solution will be borne by that service,” Fick said.
Asked if moving forward with the AETP on the F-35 will depend on whether the Air Force is willing to bear that cost, he replied, “I think so.”
The Air Force could go it alone on the AETP, he said.
But the longstanding agreement among F-35 partners is that “you have to pay to be different.”
Fick, speaking at a roundtable with defense reporters in his Arlington, Va., office, said he has visited GE Aviation’s Evendale, Ohio, plant to see its XA100 version of the AETP engine and came away “very impressed” and “energized” by the effort.
Pratt & Whitney’s version of the AETP is called the XA101.
Pratt & Whitney is the sole builder of the F-35’s F135 engine.

Cita:
Pratt & Whitney is testing its new XA101 Adaptive Engine Transition Program powerplant, and expects to conclude testing its two examples by the end of next year, company military engines division president Matthew Bromberg revealed in an interview.
He expects that two-thirds of the technology developed from AETP could find its way into earlier engines now flying with the Air Force.
The company is “thrilled” to have two options available for the Air Force and F-35 partners to choose from for an upgrade to the fighter’s propulsion system, Bromberg said.
GE Aviation has developed the XA100 AETP engine as a competitor to Pratt’s version.
Testing of “our first new fighter engine in 30 years … was successful,” Bromberg said.
The first XA101 and its twin will shuttle back and forth between Pratt’s facilities and the Air Force’s Arnold Engineering Center in Tullahoma, Tenn., for the next year or so, generating more data.
The Air Force and F-35 Joint Program Office will use the data to help decide whether the F-35 should get an all-new powerplan - one of the AETP engines - or take Pratt up on its offer of an enhanced version of the F135 engine already in the F-35 fighter.
Pratt succeeded in achieving the AETP’s goals, which were to obtain 10 percent improvement in thrust and 25 percent improvements in both fuel efficiency and thermal management, Bromberg said.
“We know we can do that,” he said.

Neither Pratt’s XA101 nor GE’s XA100 will fit in the F-35B short takeoff and vertical landing version, however. Bromberg said the reason has to do with the three-bearing swivel nozzle employed by the F-35B being “incompatible” with the third-stream architecture. It might be possible to use the AETP engine in the Navy’s F-35C carrier version, Bromberg said, if the arresting hook system could be moved to accommodate it. He said Pratt has had discussions with Lockheed Martin to that effect.

“We could modify it to fit around some of the unique elements of the adaptive engine, but that’s work to be done,” he said.

Turkey intends to seek compensation for its removal from a U.S.-led stealth fighter jet program, possibly during a meeting with U.S. President Joe Biden on the margins of a Group of 20 meeting next month, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said.
Erdogan, speaking to journalists during a flight back from a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday, also said there would be no “turning back” from deal with Russia for Turkey’s acquisition of S-400 advanced missile defense systems.
That deal led to NATO-member Turkey’s removal from the international program that produces F-35 fighter jets.
Erdogan said he hoped to meet Biden at the G-20 meeting in Rome to discuss the F-35 project, including a $1.4 billion payment Turkey had made before its ouster from the program.
Another meeting between the Turkish and U.S. leaders could also take place on the sidelines of a November climate conference in Glasgow, Scotland, Erdogan said.

Turkey has made a request to the U.S. to buy 40 Lockheed Martin-made F-16 fighter jets and nearly 80 modernization kits for its existing warplanes, as the NATO ally looks to modernize its Air Force after the purchase of F-35 jets fell through, sources familiar with the matter said.
The deal, worth billions, is still working its way through the Foreign Military Sales process which is subject to approval by the U.S. State Department as well as the U.S. Congress which can block deals.
The people spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the deal.
"As a matter of policy, the Department does not confirm or comment on proposed defense sales or transfers until they have been formally notified to Congress," a spokesperson for the State Department said.
The Turkish Embassy in Washington declined to comment.

HMS Queen Elizabeth opens new era of UK airpower in Asia-Pacific ...

By Greg Waldron (Flight International) - 12 October 2021

Immagine

FlightGlobal caught up with HMS Queen Elizabeth during a short port call in Singapore, following its extensive deployment in North Asia as part of the Carrier Strike Group 21 deployment.
The 65,000t vessel’s recent visit to the city-state marked the first time in years that a Royal Navy (RN) aircraft carrier called at the former British outpost.
The vessel had passed through the Singapore Straits in late July, but continued on to North Asia, where the RN had a busy schedule of exercises with regional allies including Australia, Japan, New Zealand, South Korea and the USA.
Prior to arriving back in Singapore, the carrier exercised with the Republic of Singapore Navy, with its Lockheed Martin F-35Bs working with Republic of Singapore Air Force Lockheed F-16s.
Given concerns about the coronavirus pandemic, the ship’s crew was restricted to the vessel during the stay in Singapore.
After testing negative for Covid-19, visitors to the ship were issued N95 masks and rubber surgical gloves.
A unique feature of Queen Elizabeth’s air wing is its joint nature, comprising 18 F-35Bs drawn from the Royal Air Force’s (RAF’s) 617 Squadron and the US Marine Corps’ (USMC’s) Marine Fighter Attack Squadron 211.
In addition, the vessel carries Leonardo Helicopters AW101 Merlins from 820 and 845 Naval Air Squadrons.
The strike group’s commander, Commodore Steve Moorhouse, told a media gathering on the ship that cooperation and interoperability of the RAF and USMC F-35Bs has been excellent.
“As a commander, I’m almost blind to who’s flying it,” he says. “I ask for F-35s, and I don’t care which squadron they are coming from.”
This also carries over to the maintenance realm, where spare parts are shared between the RAF and USMC – in some cases, spares have come from other allied vessels.
That said, USMC and RAF engineers do not work on each other’s aircraft, mainly owing to permissions specific to the US and British governments.
Moreover, US Navy weapons loaders are present aboard Queen Elizabeth owing to differences in the weapons that USMC aircraft carry versus their RAF counterparts.
Industry representatives are embarked to support both squadrons.
Moorhouse says learnings have travelled both ways.
The RN and RAF have benefited from the USMC’s experience with operating F-35Bs at sea.
The USMC, in turn, has learned about operating aircraft from a British carrier.
Moorhouse says sustainment has gone well and that readiness rates are good.
He notes that the F-35B, with its short take-off and vertical landing (STOVL) capability, can pretty much operate from any flat top – even those from other nations.
“What we’ve also seen out here is the flexibility of the F-35B … where if you’re operating a big deck with F-35B, any nation can come and go, so you’ve got this incredible flexibility.”
Although the STOVL-capable F-35B as well as the F-35A (conventional take-off and landing) and F-35C (catapult assisted take-off but arrested recovery) are becoming more commonplace, there was considerable sensitivity around the low-observable type aboard Queen Elizabeth.
On typical aircraft carrier tours, visitors are free to wander up to aircraft and snap close-up pictures.
Aboard the Queen Elizabeth, however, visitors were asked to keep a respectful distance from the F-35Bs, particularly when taking photographs.
An “F-35B Photography Guide” in the media kit indicated sensitive areas that should not be directly photographed, such as the intakes, cockpit, lift-fan, and the rear of the engine.
On deck, every F-35B engine intake was covered, as was the interior of the thrust nozzle.
Pictures were not allowed in the hangar bay, where a few aircraft were undergoing maintenance.
Eighteen F-35Bs are embarked on the Carrier Strike Group 2021 deployment, but the vessel can carry up to 36.
An RN officer suggests that 36 fighters probably will not be part of the vessel’s typical load out.
Such a large contingent of embarked jets would have a considerable support footprint.
Still, the two main elevators can load a pair of F-35Bs each, supporting the rapid movement of aircraft down to and up from the hangar bay as necessary.
Another hallmark of Queen Elizabeth are the large display screens on her flight deck and in the hangar bay.
These inform the deck crew about air movements, such as which aircraft is about to take-off or land.
During the day the lettering is green, but this switches to red for night operations.
The vessel’s deck has a special coating that one officer says is “extremely expensive”.
It is designed to cope with – and rapidly dissipate – the high temperatures generated by the downward-directed jet wash from landing F-35Bs.
The deck coating is so effective at dissipating heat that flight deck crew can safely walk across the landing area after a fighter arrives.
During a media briefing aboard the ship Moorhouse was pressed about any encounters with Chinese forces during Queen Elizabeth’s voyage in the region.
He says that while Chinese units were sometimes in the task force’s vicinity, they kept a distance and behaved “professionally”.
RAF chief of the air staff Air Chief Marshal Sir Mike Wigston, who spoke with Moorhouse aboard the ship, adds that the RAF now operates similar types to air forces in the region.
These include the F-35, as well as assets such as the Airbus Defence & Space A330 multi-role tanker transport, A400M tactical transport, and Boeing P-8A Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft.
These fleet similarities are consistent with the UK’s desire to play a greater role in the Asia-Pacific.
“For the first time in many decades, the Royal Air Force is operating similar platforms to a number of the air forces in the region,” says Wigston.
“That offers lots of opportunities for squadron exchanges, partnering…there’s lots of opportunities there.”
Following its short visit to Singapore, Queen Elizabeth will head back through the Straits of Malacca to the Andaman Sea and beyond.
The Carrier Strike Group is expected back in the UK well before Christmas.

La Queen Elizabeth ha lasciato Singapore ...
Cita:
Britain’s new aircraft carrier departed Singapore Tuesday, bringing an end to a nearly three month deployment to the western Pacific.
The deployment of the Royal Navy’s largest warship underscores the growing geopolitical complexities in the region, brought about in part by increasing Chinese assertiveness in the region.
The 65,000-ton HMS Queen Elizabeth had arrived in Singapore barely 24 hours earlier following exercises with the southeast Asian island nation’s military, which included the carrier’s Lockheed-Martin F-35B Lighting II Joint Strike Fighters training with Singaporean F-16 fighter jets.
The aircraft carrier carried 18 F-35Bs on this deployment, of which eight were from the Royal Air Force’s 617 Squadron and the remainder being U.S. Marine Corps aircraft from Marine Fighter Attack Squadron or VMFA 211.

Appello bipartisan al Presidente Biden ...
Cita:
A bipartisan group of lawmakers is urging the White House to fully fund the F-35 Lightning II program in the coming years.
But Senate appropriators are raising concerns about maintenance challenges facing the advanced fifth-generation fighter, and this week questioned the need to buy more F-35s right now.
In a Wednesday letter to President Biden (*), 89 lawmakers, including Reps. Marc Veasey, D-Texas, and Mike Turner, R-Ohio, said the United States needs to keep investing in F-35s in the fiscal 2023 Defense Department budget request and the Future Years Defense Plan.
Veasey and Turner are co-chairs of the congressional Joint Strike Fighter Caucus.
The Pentagon needs to buy at least 100 F-35s for the U.S. military each year, invest in advanced capabilities to stay ahead of threats from adversaries and provide enough funding to sustain the aircraft for decades, the lawmakers wrote in the letter, though they did not spell out specific funding levels.

Ancora a proposito della possibilità di una futura rimotorizzazione degli F-35 ... interviene Greg Hayes, Amministratore Delegato di Raytheon Technologies, che sostiene che l'Air Force potrebbe non essere in grado di permettersi un nuovo motore per l'aereo ...
Cita:
The Air Force may decide that it can’t afford to build an entirely new, advanced engine for its F-35A Lightning II fighter jet, the Raytheon Technologies chief executive said Tuesday.
In 2016, the Air Force awarded Raytheon-owned Pratt & Whitney and General Electric Aviation each a billion-dollar contract to develop a new F-35A engine under the Adaptive Engine Transition Program.
This engine is intended to deliver better fuel efficiency and thrust by using a third stream of air.
However, Raytheon CEO Greg Hayes said in a call with analysts Tuesday morning paying for the new adaptive engine will be a “tough putt” for the Air Force.
Because the adaptive engine could not be used in the F-35B, the Marine Corps’ vertical takeoff and landing variant or the Navy’s carrier-based F-35C, Hayes said the Air Force would bear its entire development cost.
GE said on its website that while its engine is still in testing, it has been designed to be used in both the F-35A and F-35C variants.

But maybe there really is another way to meet that challenge.
GE’s work in the Air Force’s Adaptive Engine Technology Program overcomes that inherent trade-off by incorporating the ability to change the power dynamics on the fly.
Its XA100 engine can reconfigure itself in flight to produce power of greater efficiency.

Cita:
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told journalists on his return home from the G20 summit in Rome on Oct. 31 that President Joe Biden had told Erdogan that Biden would do “his best” to help usher through a $6 billion sale of F-16 fighters and modernization kits, according to reports.
A much-anticipated meeting between Biden and Erdogan comes after months of tension regarding Turkey’s possession and use of the Russian S-400 missile defense system.
Speculation remains that Turkey will turn to further Russian military sales, to include fighter planes, after the NATO ally was officially kicked out of the F-35 program in September over concerns the S-400 would be used to study vulnerabilities in the fifth-generation fighter.
A State Department spokesperson declined to comment further Nov. 2, referring questions to the White House.
The White House did not immediately respond to an inquiry.

“I personally am not supportive of giving them F-16s,” Menendez told Air Force Magazine during a visit to Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst.
“I just really have a problem,” he said.
“This is not the Turkey that we aspire for, is not the type of NATO ally that is behaving in a way that we should be able to go ahead and give it some of the most sophisticated fighting equipment.”
At issue are Turkey’s human rights record and foreign policy positions.
Menendez said Turkey has jailed more lawyers and journalists “than almost any place in the world.”

Il "quarterback dei cieli" ...
Cita:
... l’F-35 Lightning II, nelle sue tre versioni, è più di un caccia, è un potente moltiplicatore di forza con sensori avanzati e suite di comunicazione che migliorano le capacità delle piattaforme aeree, di superficie e terrestri collegate in rete, condividendo informazioni critiche nelle operazioni nello spazio di battaglia JADo (Joint-All Domain).

Un F-35B della portaerei britannica Queen Elizabeth è precipitato nel Mare Mediterraneo ... salvo il pilota ...
Cita:
A U.K. F-35B Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter operating from Royal Navy carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth (R08) crashed in the Mediterranean on Wednesday, the U.K. Ministry of Defense announced.
A British F-35 pilot from HMS Queen Elizabeth ejected during routine flying operations in the Mediterranean this morning,” reads a statement from the MoD.
The pilot has been safely returned to the ship and an investigation has begun, so it would be inappropriate to comment further at this time.”
The crash occurred at about 10 a.m. London time and no other ships or aircraft were involved, an MoD spokesperson told USNI News.
As of Wednesday morning, other type models of U.K. F-35s were still flying without restrictions, the spokesperson said.
Queen Elizabeth deployed with a blended air wing that includes the “Wake Island Avengers” of U.S. Marine Fighter Attack Squadron (VMFA) 211 and the Royal Air Force’s 617 Squadron “The Dambusters.”
The MoD would not identify the service branch of the pilot of the crashed F-35.
RAF and Royal Navy pilots fly the U.K. F-35s.
The carrier strike group is on its final leg of its inaugural deployment after departing the U.K. for its deployment on May 22 with eight RAF F-35Bs and 10 Marine F-35Bs.

E' cominciata la corsa al recupero del relitto dello F-35B britannico precipitato nel Mediterraneo ...
Cita:
... la Royal Navy britannica ha confermato mercoledì scorso la perdita nel Mediterraneo di un F-35 Lightning II operante dalla portaerei HMS Queen Elizabeth.
Il pilota, dopo il decollo, si è lanciato dal velivolo in sicurezza ed è stato prontamente recuperato da un elicottero Merlin e riportato a bordo dell’unità navale inglese.
Il velivolo era uno degli otto Lightning del 617 Dambusters Squadron della RAF, che hanno preso parte a un dispiegamento attraverso l’Oceano Indiano nel Pacifico a bordo dell’ammiraglia da 65.000 tonnellate della Royal Navy da quando è salpata a maggio.
Naturalmente l’incidente ha innescato inevitabilmente una corsa per recuperare l’aereo, che contiene molte apparecchiature ancora classificate.
Una priorità immediata sarà il recupero del relitto“, ha osservato il sito inglese Navy Lookout (*).
Questo sia per garantire che la tecnologia sensibile e i dati conservati a bordo non cadano nelle mani sbagliate sia per aiutare qualsiasi indagine sulle cause dell’incidente“.
