NH90 Forward Air MedEvac ILA 2012 | ILA Berlin Air Show 2012 | Scoop.it

Mit Flugzeugen, Hubschraubern und unbemannten Fluggeräten, am Boden und in der Luft, präsentiert die Bundeswehr auf der Internationalen Luft- und Raumfahrtausstellung (ILA) 2012 in Berlin ihr breites Fähigkeitsspektrum. Der Parlamentarische Staatssekretär Christian Schmidt hat die Luftfahrtmesse am 13. September besucht, um sich über das Ausstellungsangebot der Bundeswehr und der deutschen Luft- und Raumfahrtindustrie zu informieren.

 

Ebenso wie die vielen Luftfahrt-begeisterten Messebesucher suchte Schmidt bei seinem Messerundgang das Gespräch mit Piloten und Besatzungen der verschiedenen Bundeswehr-Fluggeräte. Vor allem an den persönlichen Erfahrungen der Besatzung eines NH90-Transporthubschraubers zeigte der Staatssekretär Interesse. Derzeit befindet sich der NH90 in der Auslieferung an die Truppe und soll Anfang nächsten Jahres in Afghanistan eingesetzt.

Hubschrauber NH 90 soll ab 2014 kommen - Niederstetten - THR 30 | ILA Berlin Air Show 2012 | Scoop.it

Die Soldaten des Transporthubschrauberregiments 30 in der Niederstettener Hermann Köhl-Kaserne sind mit ihrer augenblicklichen Situation zufrieden. Die baulichen Veränderungen an der Infrastruktur liegen im Zeitplan, die künftigen Verwendungsmöglichkeiten sind überschaubar und planbar. Weitere Schritte werden in der Feinausplanung erfolgen, die sich auch nach den militärischen Erfordernissen richtet.
Der Wehrbeauftragte des Deutschen Bundestages, Hellmut Königshaus musste sich bei seinem gestrigen Truppenbesuch in Begleitung der beiden Bundestagsabgeordneten Alois Gerig (CDU) und Staatsminister Michael Georg Link (FDP) KEINE Klagen anhören.

 

Ab 2014 soll der lange angekündigte Hubschrauber NH 90 in den Standort rollen, wie Königshaus nochmals unterstrich. Die erforderlichen baulichen Voraussetzungen sind beinahe abgeschlossen. Von den veranschlagten 170 Millionen Euro Umbaukosten sind bereits 110 Millionen Euro verbaut. Nach dem Bau der neuen Instandsetzungshallen soll in einem der nächsten Bauabschnitte der Tower modernisiert und der neue Flugsimulator installiert werden. Damit, so Königshaus in Übereinstimmung mit den beiden Abgeordneten, sei die Zukunftsfähigkeit des Standortes gewährleistet und der Verband weiter gestärkt und man sei für die neuen Aufgabenstellungen gerüstet.

German Heavy Lift: Buy Big, or Think Smaller?

German Heavy Lift: Buy Big, or Think Smaller? | ILA Berlin Air Show 2012 | Scoop.it

The future of the German heavy-lift helo is likely to be a subject of much discussion at this week's ILA Berlin Air Show.

EADS is displaying its joint concept with Boeing, including diagrams of a proposed tandem-rotor design and a full-scale cross section of the proposed cabin for the aircraft, which looks much like an enlarged CH-47 Chinook, built by Boeing. It is likely that Boeing’s contribution to this design would be providing the tandem-rotor technology and dynamics of the aircraft.

 

The two companies have been cooperating to explore business for years, but the cabin display appears to be new for ILA. “Eurocopter has been working with Boeing in recent years to explore airframe design and technologies for the Future Transport Helicopter requirement in Europe,” according to a Boeing statement issued in response to a query about the Eurocopter design displayed at the show. “Together, the companies have met with representatives of several countries to determine whether the market can sustain a large-scale aircraft development program based on a tandem-rotor design.”

The global financial downturn is dampening the ambitions of defense ministries around the world, and could impinge on Berlin’s hopes for a large helicopter capable of carrying its artillery around the battlefield internally. A backup plan for the country could be to consider off-the-shelf options that would reduce the cost of development.

Though Sikorsky has preliminary designs for a larger helicopter, company officials are expecting to showcase the CH-53K here this week. The massive helicopter’s customer, the U.S. Marine Corps, will be in attendance and brief local press on the CH-53K’s attributes and status.

Sikorsky is now manufacturing the first ground-test vehicle, and U.S. Marine Corps Col. Robert Pridgen, CH-53K program manager, said earlier this year that the major risk areas of the program are largely retired. The main hurdle was thought to be in crafting the split-torque gearbox for the helicopter, which is designed to maintain the CH-53’s footprint while doubling useful load.

If Germany’s ambitions for a large, next-generation helicopter begin to recede, Sikorsky is likely to pitch the existing CH-53K design and Boeing would likely fall back on its CH-47F model design, with both company’s considering options for industrial cooperation in Germany for manufacturing.
