Saab continua le consegne a Boeing della sezione posteriore della cellula del T-7A Red Hawk ... questa volta si tratta della terza ...

Cita:
Saab has shipped its third aft airframe section for use in the T-7A Red Hawk flight test program for the United States Air Force.
The shipment on 10 September 2021 was from Saab’s Linköping site in Sweden to Boeing in St. Louis, Missouri, USA and arrived there a few days later.
The production and shipment of this aft airframe section is the latest milestone in Saab’s contribution to the Engineering and Manufacturing Development (EMD) phase of the T-7A Red Hawk trainer for the United States Air Force.
On completion of the EMD phase, Saab’s brand new facility in West Lafayette, Indiana, USA will undertake Saab’s production of the aft airframe sections for the T-7A program.

Ed ora gli Americani, oltre al T-7A, vogliono qualche centinaio di "Advanced Tactical Trainer" ...
Cita:
The Air Force is seeking “at least 100” and as many as 400 Advanced Tactical Trainer aircraft both to train fighter pilots and to serve as adversary aircraft in training, a role similar to that now performed by the AT-38.
While the Air Force seems likely to be looking at adding to the role of the T-7A, the service did not mention that airplane or its maker, Boeing, in the request for information published Oct. 12.
The service said its RFI is “very similar” to one issued by the Navy for a post-T-45 jet trainer, and to “reduce the burden of crafting a response,” contractors can simply submit the same information as they did to the Navy.
The Air Force said it is conducting “market research” to determine what company might be able to respond to the requirement.

Comunque sia ... ho la netta impressione che non sappiano nemmeno loro cosa vogliono e stiano mettendo troppa carne al fuoco ...
E, aggiungo, mi sembra degno di nota il fatto che che, nell'articolo, non venga fatto cenno alcuno ad una eventuale partecipazione del "346" a questa competizione ...

"Advanced Fighter Trainer" ... Lockheed Martin afferma che parteciperà alla competizione ma evita di specificare con cosa ...
Cita:
Lockheed Martin will offer a solution to the Air Force’s new Advanced Tactical Trainer aircraft, a new jet the Air Force is planning to bridge undergraduate flight instruction and full-up fighter certification.
However, the company declined to say what it might offer for the nascent competition.

Il problema delle oscillazioni alari del T-7A sarebbe stato risolto ...
Cita:
Speaking from the floor of Boeing’s T-7A factory in St. Louis, Paul Niewald, vice president and programme manager for T-7 programmes, highlighted the trainer’s digital design and engineering, which greatly simplifies production.
Niewald also says that a ‘wing-rock’ issue discovered in mid-2021 has been resolved.
In flights with the two T-7A prototypes, it was found that the wings tended to rock left and right at high angles of attack.
“We collected more data, were able to bring that down, model it, fly some updates in our manned hardware simulator to model our simulation efforts,” he says.
Following this work, a software fix was devised and loaded onto a test aircraft.
A series of flights was conducted under different conditions to ensure the issue was resolved.
Niewald adds, however, that supply chain disruptions owing the coronavirus pandemic are still a challenge for the programme, mainly owing to the impact on suppliers.
He also says that Boeing will consider pitching the T-7A following a recent US Air Force request for information (RFI) for at least 100 new advanced tactical trainers.
The RFI calls for an aircraft to provide initial tactical training, adversary air support, and “serve as a tactical fighter surrogate of existing and future” USAF fighters.
“This aircraft was designed with growth in mind and being able to do things besides the basic training mission,” says Niewald.
“What’s been released is something we’ll take a look at to see if we can support that need as well.”
USAF already has a programme of record to acquire 351 T-7As to replace the Northrop T-38.

La U.S. Navy come l'USAF ... vuole un suo "Advanced Tactical Trainer" che chiama però "Tactical Surrogate Aircraft" ...
Cita:
US Navy interested in 64 "Tactical Surrogate Aircraft" ...

By Garrett Reim (Flight International) - 22 October 2021

The US Navy (USN) is researching options for a “Tactical Surrogate Aircraft”.
The aircraft would supplement flight time and training in frontline combat aircraft, provide adversary air support and serve as a flight lead aircraft for Fleet Replacement Squadrons, a unit that trains naval aviators on frontline combat aircraft, such as the Lockheed Martin F-35C and Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornet.
The service’s interest was expressed in a request for information, posted on 20 October, and appears to have parallels to the US Air Force’s (USAF) “Reforge” pilot training concept, which would use advanced jet trainers instead of actual fighter aircraft to teach modern combat aviation skills.
In fact, it is virtually identical to an “Advanced Tactical Trainer” request for information that the USAF posted on 12 October.
“The aircraft needs to simulate and/or replicate current and future fighter aircraft systems by providing the training environment and relevant experience to build tactical skills, systems management skills, and decision making skills required for weapon system employment actions”, says the USN.
The service says it is notionally interested in buying 64 aircraft, with deliveries beginning in fiscal year 2024 or FY2025.
For its part, the USAF says it is interested in at least 100 Advanced Tactical Trainers.
The USN wants a two-seat fighter type aircraft “configured for single seat operations with alternate options for rear cockpit use”.
It is interested in knowing about the cost to remove rear the crew station and replace it with “permanent additional fuel or avionics bay volume”.
The aircraft should have a minimum level aircraft speed of at least 600kt (1,111km/h).
It should have a minimum ceiling of at least 45,000ft above mean sea level.
The jet’s structure ought to at a minimum be able to handle 7.5G of force and a sustained 6G of force at 10,000ft.
The aircraft should have a minimum flight endurance of 90min, including 30min of tactical manoeuvring.
The jet should be able to fly basic fighter manoeuvring, air-to-air and air-to-ground mission profiles.
The USN wants the jet aircraft’s cockpit to have large area displays with an open architecture configuration.
The Tactical Surrogate Aircraft should have an “operational flight program to replicate frontline [type model series] aircraft displays and enable simulated displays of aircraft combat systems, simulated inputs, and simulated weapons”.
The service wants the aircraft to be able to carry a captive air training missile on one wingtip and a tactical combat training system, or an air combat manoeuvring instrumentation pod, on the other wingtip – equipment used to conduct virtual weapons training.
The USN also wants a wing station to carry an electronic attack or electronic counter measures pod.
The USAF and USN are fielding a growing number of advanced F-35 stealth fighters that require pilots to manage and use many complex electronics systems at once, for example, active electronically scanned array radars, long-range air-to-air missiles, and electronic warfare equipment.
US military services are also facing off against increasingly sophisticated foes, such as China and Russia, that have their own stealth fighters.
The increased complexity of modern aerial combat has caused the services to rethink how they train fighter pilots.
As a first step toward improving combat pilot training, the USAF in 2018 selected Boeing for a $9 billion contract to produce 351 “T-X” advanced jet trainers and 46 ground simulators.
The company’s T-7A Red Hawk is now to replace to the service’s aging fleet of Northrop T-38C Talons.
In 2020, the USN kicked off its search for a new advanced jet trainer to replace its Boeing T-45 Goshawk fleet.
The service has 191 T-45s in its fleet, according to Cirium fleets analyser.
However, despite their advanced trainer programmes, the USAF and USN appear to believe they need additional light-weight jets for higher-end training and adversarial air exercises.
Competitors in the Tactical Surrogate Aircraft and Advanced Tactical Trainers programmes would likely include past contestants in the T-X programme: Boeing’s T-7A, Lockheed Martin’s T-50A, based on the FA-50 light-attack/trainer developed with Korea Aerospace Industries; and Leonardo’s T-100, based on the company’s M-346.

T-7A Red Hawk ... si avvicina il momento dell'inizio dei collaudi in volo del primo esemplare di produzione del velivolo ...
Cita:
The first production example of Boeing’s T-7A Red Hawk advanced trainer for flight trials is taking shape at the factory in St. Louis, Missouri, as mechanics install its final components prior to the beginning of ground tests.
Boeing hopes to get the aircraft into the air by the end of the year, while acknowledging some delays to the assembly caused by the Covid pandemic.
Another four T-7As have entered the assembly flow.
The process of putting together the major subassemblies can happen rapidly thanks to the employment of digital model-based engineering in the design, including the incorporation of self-locating part technology.
Splicing the fore and aft fuselage sub-assemblies can take place in around 30 minutes, while attaching the wings and tail surfaces can take 10 minutes for each surface.
Industrial partner Saab builds the fuselage aft of the cockpit, and the initial production of seven sections have started at the company’s factory in Linköping, Sweden.
It shipped the third such subassembly in equipped form to St. Louis in September and now forms part of the first production aircraft for flight.
