Autoflug joins the Sikorsky Heavy Lift Helicopter Team for Germany's STH program

Autoflug joins the Sikorsky Heavy Lift Helicopter Team for Germany's STH program | Sikorsky CH-53 | Scoop.it

Sikorsky and AUTOFLUG signed a Letter of Intent to collaborate more closely together on AUTOFLUG’s equipment portfolio and Sikorsky’s CH-53K helicopter for the German STH program. 

AUTOFLUG views Sikorsky CH-53K as the most modern aircraft solution in the Heavy Lift Market and would assure the Germany Air Force has the safest and most technological aircraft with the best equipment available today. Each company views this as an opportunity to expand beyond only the STH Program for potential requirements in both the military and civilian markets. AUTOFLUG is a leader in aircraft seats, mission equipment for MedEvac and auxiliary fuel systems.

 

The companies have held talks regarding the CH-53K, the newly developed, state-of-the-art, heavy-lift transport helicopter made by Sikorsky, which is competing to be the successor to Sikorsky’s CH-53 GE/GS/GA currently being flown in Germany. AUTOFLUG is already developing safety seats for current German CH-53 fleet to improve crash safety for its remaining service life. The seating systems also have a low weight and are extremely quick to fit and remove, as well as being durable with no maintenance, and providing the occupant with maximum freedom of movement.

If the requirements remain the same or similar for its potential successor, AUTOFLUG could adapt for a configuration of up to 48 troop seats in the CH-53K, with minimal development effort. The management of AUTOFLUG is sure that an important factor in the selection process of the successor to the CH-53 GE/GS/GA will be the ratio of German industry in the overall program. A high degree of German participation is the precondition for a high level of constant availability during the planned life-time of the helicopters to be procured.

2018 AIAA SciTech Forum - Andreas Bernhard - Sikorsky CH-53K "King Stallion" Helicopter

Digital Transformations Disrupting Aerospace Business Models - Andreas Bernhard, Chief Engineer, CH-53K Helicopter, Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation

 

The design process for aircraft is one of the main digital disruptions in the aerospace sector. The CH-53K King Stallion helicopter that Sikorsky is developing for the U.S. Marine Corps is the Lockheed Martin subsidiary’s first production aircraft built with a completely digital, paperless design, said Andreas Bernhard, the helicopter’s chief engineer at Sikorsky. Looking ahead to the 2020s, Bernhard predicted, “our most profitable product is no longer going to be the Black Hawk, but the CH-53K.” New technologies on the CH-53K also include composite rotor blades that he said “generate enough lift to carry an empty Black Hawk,” a transmission with improved power density than previous generation Sikorsky helicopters, and digital engine controls in the cockpit.

Sikorsky Begins CH-53K King Stallion Heavy Lift Helicopter Deliveries to the U.S. Marine Corps - May 16, 2018

Sikorsky Begins CH-53K King Stallion Heavy Lift Helicopter Deliveries to the U.S. Marine Corps - May 16, 2018 | Sikorsky CH-53 | Scoop.it

Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin company,  delivered the first CH-53 King Stallion helicopter to the U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) today. The aircraft is the first of an expected 200 helicopters for the Marine Corps' fleet.

The CH-53K is the new build replacement for the U.S. Marine Corps' aging CH-53E Super Stallion fleet. The CH-53E first flew in 1974 and entered service with the USMC in 1981.

 

"Our first delivery of a CH-53K to the Marine Corps marks the start of a new generation of true heavy lift helicopter deliveries by Sikorsky that bring unsurpassed and expanded capability across the modern battlefield to provide tremendous mission flexibility and efficiency in delivering combat power, humanitarian assistance or disaster relief for those in need," said Dan Schultz, Sikorsky President and former CH-53 pilot. "With 18 additional aircraft in various stages of production already, the entire Sikorsky team, in partnership with our suppliers, is looking forward to additional deliveries to delight our customer."

This first CH53K heavy lift helicopter will be stationed at Marine Corps Air Station New River in Jacksonville, North Carolina.

There the helicopter enters into the Supportability Test Plan. U.S. Marines will conduct a logistics assessment on the maintenance, sustainment and overall aviation logistics support of the King Stallion. This assessment also will validate maintenance procedures with Marine Corps maintainers conducting hands-on care/upkeep of the aircraft. The Supportability Test Plan will ensure readiness and support on the flightline when CH-53K helicopters enter into service with the USMC.

Sikorsky expects to deliver its second CH-53K helicopter to the USMC in early 2019.

The CH-53K test program recently completed the following milestones: maximum weight single-point cargo hook sling load of 36,000 pounds (16,329 kilograms); forward flight speed of over 200 knots; 60 degrees angle of bank turns; altitude of 18,500 feet mean sea level (MSL); 12-degree slope landings and takeoffs; external load auto-jettison; and gunfire testing.

"I am very proud of the work accomplished to deliver the most powerful helicopter ever designed into the hands of our Marines," Lt. Gen. Steven Rudder, Deputy Commandant for Aviation, said. "And confident in the teamwork and dedication in this program which will carry us to IOC (Initial Operational Capability) next year."

Sikorsky is preparing its manufacturing facility in Stratford, Connecticut, to house CH-53K production beginning this summer.

The heavy lift helicopter made its international debut and showcased its maneuverability and advanced fly-by-wire technology during demonstration flights at the recent ILA Berlin Air Show in Berlin, Germany.

Lockheed teams up with Rheinmetall for German Military Helicopter Contract - Sikorsky CH-53K "King Stallion"

Lockheed teams up with Rheinmetall for German Military Helicopter Contract - Sikorsky CH-53K "King Stallion" | Sikorsky CH-53 | Scoop.it

U.S. arms manufacturer Lockheed Martin Corporation and German peer Rheinmetall AG said they will team up to compete for a 4 billion euro ($4.9 billion) contract to supply the German military with heavy-lift helicopters.

 

The two companies told Reuters they had signed a strategic agreement on the tie-up, which they are set to formally announce on Tuesday.

 

Germany in December approved plans to buy 45 to 60 new heavy-lift helicopters, kicking off a competition between Lockheed, which is offering its massive CH-53K helicopter, and Boeing Co, which will offer its smaller twin-rotor CH-47 variant.

The German defense ministry expects to issue a request for information in the second half of 2018, with a contract expected to be awarded in mid-2020 and deliveries to begin in 2023, replacing Germany’s existing fleet of CH-53G aircraft.

 

Lockheed said in an emailed statement to Reuters that it had chosen Rheinmetall as its “lead teammate” for the bid because of the German company’s “wealth of experience and knowledge.”

It said it would name other German partners in coming weeks. “The goal is to offer German military forces as a comprehensive solution that includes the CH-53K helicopters as well as additional services in maintenance, service, training and program support,” Rheinmetall said in an emailed statement to Reuters.

Rheinmetall Chief Executive Armin Papperger said the team would offer “the best possible state-of-the-art aircraft for the German Air Force as successor for the legacy CH-53G fleet.”

Dan Schultz, president of Lockheed’s Sikorsky helicopter unit, who flew earlier CH-53 model helicopters while serving in the U.S. Marine Corps, said in Lockheed’s statement that the new CH-53K model was “the most powerful heavy-lift helicopter that we have ever built.”

Boeing plans to offer Germany the CH-47 Chinook already used by eight other NATO countries. It has said it also plans to form partnerships with German industry.

 

Lockheed’s CH-53K, which includes an on-board diagnostic system, is due to make its international debut at the Berlin Air Show in April.

The U.S. Marine Corps plans to buy 200 of the new CH-53K helicopters at an average price of around $88 million per plane and expects to declare it ready for combat use in 2019.

 

Germany hopes to start buying its helicopters in 2023, and Israel and Japan have also expressed interest in the CH-53K.

Sikorsky CH-53K Completes Critical Flight Envelope Expansion with 36,000-pound External Lift - Mar 7, 2018

Sikorsky CH-53K Completes Critical Flight Envelope Expansion with 36,000-pound External Lift - Mar 7, 2018 | Sikorsky CH-53 | Scoop.it

The Sikorsky CH-53K King Stallion completed an external lift of a 36,000-pound payload at the Sikorsky Development Flight Center, achieving a maximum weight on the single center point cargo hook. This milestone marks completion of critical flight envelope expansion activities for the CH-53K as Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin company prepares to deliver the first aircraft to the U.S. Marine Corps this year.

 

The CH-53K lifted the external load of 36,000 lbs. into a hover followed by flight demonstrating satisfactory handling qualities and structural margins.  The gross weight of the aircraft topped out at just over 91,000 lbs., making this the heaviest helicopter ever flown by Sikorsky.

 

"The successful completion of these last critical envelope expansion tests further demonstrates the maturity of the CH-53K aircraft," said Dr. Michael Torok, Sikorsky Vice President, Marine Corps Systems. "We look forward to bringing this unique and exceptional heavy lift capability to the United States Marine Corps and our international customers."

Prior to the 36,000-lb. lift, the CH-53K lifted various external payloads up to 27,000 lbs. including a Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV). The CH-53K can carry a 27,000 lb. external load over 110 nautical miles in high/hot conditions, which is more than triple the external load carrying capacity of the legacy CH-53E aircraft.  Other flight envelope accomplishments include tethered hover demonstrating flight speeds to 200 knots, angle of bank to 60 degrees, takeoffs and landings from sloped surfaces up to 12 degrees, external load auto-jettison, and gunfire testing.

"The payload capability of this helicopter is unmatched, triple that of its predecessor and better than any other heavy lift helicopter in production," said Col. Hank Vanderborght, U.S. Marine Corps Program Manager for the Naval Air Systems Command's Heavy Lift Helicopters Program. "The CH-53K program continues on pace to deploy this incredible heavy lift capability to our warfighters."


The CH-53K is also garnering international interest. Rheinmetall and Sikorsky recently signed a strategic teaming agreement to offer the CH-53K for Germany's new heavy lift helicopter competition. Additional teammates will be announced in the coming weeks leading up to the aircraft's debut at the ILA Berlin Air Show in April.

Lockheed Martin Counting on CH-53K "King Stallion" to Drive Sikorsky Business

Lockheed Martin Counting on CH-53K "King Stallion" to Drive Sikorsky Business | Sikorsky CH-53 | Scoop.it

At the beginning of January, Sikorsky’s CH-53K chief engineer, Andreas Bernhard, told the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics’ (AIAA) SciTech Forum that the CH-53K King Stallion would generate more revenue than the Black Hawk in the 2020s.

Lockheed Martin EVP and CFO Bruce Tanner said during the company’s full-year 2017 earnings call Monday that what Bernhard said is as much a necessity for the future of the business as it is a projection.

With the recent sale of Sikorsky’s light helicopter line, it’s clear what market is expected to bring in the most business.

“In the longer term with Sikorsky, we’d like to see the growth coming from the 53K program as we start to enter the low-rate production phase of that program,” Tanner said. “Hopefully, you should think of the downturn in Black Hawk helicopter deliveries being offset by upticks in 53K volume, as well as some of the other development programs we’ve got going like the presidential helicopter program as well.”

Lockheed Martin is also hoping to secure international deals for the CH-53K. Tanner said that the aircraft is set to fly at the Berlin Airshow, and Germany is one of two of the “most likely” customers.

The other likely customer is Israel, which U.S. Congress targeted April 2017 as an international customer for the King Stallion. Brig. Gen. Nir Nin-Nun, commander of air support and helicopter division for the Israeli Air Force, visited Patuxent River, Maryland, to take a test flight in November.

Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory calls for disposable UAV cargo glider that could deploy from Sikorsky CH-53 

Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory calls for disposable UAV cargo glider that could deploy from Sikorsky CH-53  | Sikorsky CH-53 | Scoop.it

Teams off US Marines on remote bases could be re-supplied in the future with "disposable" unmanned gliders toting up to 454kg (1,000lb) of cargo each.

 

The Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory awarded a contract to California-based Yates Electrospace Corp to test a series of unmanned gliders weighing between 227 and 454kg, the company says.

The autonomous cargo aircraft named Silver Arrow will complete a 12-month flight test with the service, the company says.

 

Yates has previously characterized its Silent Arrow UAV as an electric-powered UAV capable of hauling payloads up to 454kg.

“By removing the electric powertrain from our Silent Arrow product line, we will meet all performance requirements at unprecedented unit costs for such a capable air delivery asset,” says chief executive and founder Chip Yates.

The MCWL called for a disposable glider that could deploy from Lockheed Martin C-130, Bell Boeing MV-22 and Sikorsky CH-53 aircraft and deliver a payload of up to 317kg to within 45.7m (150ft) of the targeted delivery point.

Silent Arrow is part of a larger initiative the USMC and US Army are targeting, as the two services search for ways to lighten their expeditionary forces’ load.

During the 2017 AUVSI Xponential show, army and marine corps leaders expressed the need for aircraft that could take away the need to carry mission equipment and emergency resupply, from water bottles to packets of blood.

The army is exploring options through its joint tactical autonomous resupply system (JTARS), which calls for a midsize, unmanned cargo aircraft.

The glider version of the Silver Arrow is the latest in a series of am ambitious, electric-powered aircraft launched by the Los Angeles-based start-up.

Yates also plans to start flying next year a prototype for a nine-seat commuter aircraft with a hybrid-electric propulsion system. The company also has a design contract from another start-up -- Wright Electric -- for an electric-powered airliner capable of speeds up to 304kt (563km/h) for short-haul routes.

Germany outlines "in-flight refuelling" capability for future heavy-lift helicopter aquisition

Germany outlines "in-flight refuelling" capability for future heavy-lift helicopter aquisition | Sikorsky CH-53 | Scoop.it

Germany has confirmed that its future fleet of heavy-lift helicopters will require in-flight refuelling capability.

Berlin in late 2017 gave the go-ahead for its BAAINBw procurement agency to begin the acquisition of around 60 helicopters to replace an existing fleet of 70 elderly Sikorsky CH-53GE/GA/GS transports operated by the German Air force.

 

Under consideration are the developmental CH-53K and Boeing's CH-47F Chinook.

A request for proposals should be issued in May, with a selection expected in 2019, Col Bernhard Martin told the Defence IQ International Military Helicopter conference in London on 31 January. Martin, who is the air force's deputy assistant chief of staff for capability management, confirms a fleet-wide requirement for aerial refuelling on the new rotorcraft.

"We are expecting and have a requirement to have air-to-air refuelling for all our future heavy-lift helicopters," he says.

Although the CH-53K is compatible with this need, only the MH-47G variant of the Chinook has an in-flight refuelling capability. Germany may also request a longer-range version of the CH-47.

In the long term, in-flight refuelling will be performed using the Airbus Defence & Space A400M, but Germany has recently indicated that it intends to also acquire three Lockheed Martin KC-130J tankers, as part of a shared fleet with France.

Martin says the German air force's current CH-53 inventory "will reach the end of its operational life by about 2025".

However, obsolescence issues are already hampering the service's operational capabilities. "Due to the end of industrial support, in combination with other technical support issues, our current flying hours already show a substantial shortfall," Martin says, adding that only around 6,000h was being achieved per year across the fleet, against a target of more than 10,000h.

A contract for the future type should be awarded in early 2020, says Martin, with the first aircraft to arrive in 2023.

Sikorsky Chief Engineer Talks Future of CH-53K at AIAA SciTech Forum

Sikorsky Chief Engineer Talks Future of CH-53K at AIAA SciTech Forum | Sikorsky CH-53 | Scoop.it

Sikorsky is about to become disrupted by its own product. Andreas Bernhard, chief engineer on the Sikorsky CH-53K, said during American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics’ (AIAA) SciTech Forum in Kissimmee, Florida, that in the 2020s, the Black Hawk would no longer be the manufacturer’s main product.

 

 

“Since 1974, Sikorsky has been a Black Hawk company,” Bernhard said. “In the 2020s, Sikorsky will generate more revenue with the CH-53K than it will with the Black Hawk. And hand-in-hand with that, we’re delivering a capability to our primary customer, the United States Marines, that is truly transformative and disruptive.”

Charged with the task of developing an aircraft with a three-fold performance increase compared to its predecessor, Sikorsky’s process has been new, Bernhard said. The company used software tools CATIA V5 and LCA in a way that eliminated the use of paper. That makes the CH-53K Sikorsky’s first paperless design, according to Bernhard.

“It’s all model based; there are no more drawings,” he said. “Our engineering building materials and our manufacturing building materials are fully coupled and, therefore, provide a seamless integration to the supply chain.”

The design for the Marine Corps’ King Stallion is pretty much brand new. Bernhard said that the only thing the K model has in common with the E model “is the shadow on the ground.” He continued to say that the CH-53K could only have been developed inside the digital environment.

Using the digital tools, Bernhard said more than 1,000 work instructions were assembled and tested before the first parts were put together. Some areas of development were more efficient using the digital tools. Bernhard said that, for example, rate of rework in 20 miles of harness assemblies was more than 60% lower than it has been in the past.

“So for us, this was truly a transformative event, and disrupted the way we design and build helicopters in order to deliver an aircraft to the customer in a short lead time, manageable cost and to deliver the three-fold increase in performance,” Bernhard said.

The CH-53K is currently in the low-rate initial production stage, contracted by the U.S. Naval Air Systems Command.

Some other technologies that the rotorcraft industry might consider disruptive are items Sikorsky has been employing for years. The manufacturer has been downloading health management system data since 2006.

Bernhard explained that since the company delivered its first S-92 in 2006, it has implemented a nightly data download (with permission from the customer). That, he said, amounts to more than 1.1 million flight hours from 300 aircraft, more than 30 terabytes of native data and more than 140 terabytes of processed data. And every helicopter Sikorsky has delivered since 2006 has that capability, Bernhard said.

“What we have done over these past 10 years is develop the automated tools, the data mining, the decision-support technologies such that we can allow our operators to fly longer hours with less downtime and lower maintenance costs,” he said.
