Ime ce biti objavljeno u septembru

Citat:Active, Guard, Reserve and civilian Airmen, along with their dependents, submitted more than 4,600 entries in response to the contest announced by Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James during the Air Force Association Air Warfare Symposium in February.

"We received an overwhelming number of nominations, which to me is a testament to how invested our Airmen are in the future of their Air Force," James said. "Thank you to everyone who submitted, and we're looking forward to announcing the B-21's name in the fall."

Air Force Global Strike Command leadership narrowed the list down to about 15 names, in accordance with Air Force Instruction 16-401, “Designating and Naming Defense Military Aerospace Vehicles.”

James and the Air Force chief of staff will select the winner in the coming months, and the name of the 21st century bomber is scheduled to be announced during the AFA conference in September.

In the event the selected name was submitted by multiple people, the individual with the best justification for the name will be declared the winner.

Citat:Prime contractor Northrop Grumman has completed its spend plan and is hiring personnel for its Melbourne, Fla., location to work on the bomber, he said. The first set of B-21s could roll off the production line as early as 2025.

"We believe that we are going to be able to beat that $550 [million per-unit cost],” he said. “That's been really our theme to date.”

The aircraft already has undergone assessments by an Air Force "red team" in order to ensure the aircraft will be able to meet projected threats, Walden said. More evaluations will occur as development progresses. The military routinely uses so-called red teams, composed of subject-matter experts, to get a devil's advocate view on plans and capabilities.

“In most cases where the threat may change or [is] perceived to be changing, we'll ask the red team to step up and continue to look at the survivability attributes and how it would be able to conduct its mission in a highly contested environment,” he said.

It’s Official: Minimum of 100 B-21s

Citat:The Air Force’s requirement for the B-21 Raider bomber, initially stated as “80-100” airplanes, is now officially at least 100 aircraft, the Air Force said in clarifying recent senior leader remarks. Written testimony presented to the House Armed Services Committee last week by Air Force Global Strike Command chief Gen. Robin Rand and vice chief of staff Gen. Stephen Wilson indicated that 100 is now the minimum number of B-21s required. Through a spokesman, the Air Force confirmed the number, saying the change happened “in Spring 2016” at the request of AFGSC. At that time, USAF established 100 “as the floor—not the ceiling” for the B-21 fleet size, he said. AFGSC “requires a minimum of 100 B-21 Raider aircraft, with a mix of legacy bombers, to meet future COCOM [combatant commander] requirements,” the spokesman said.

Hoce 174

Citat:Rather than state a requirement for “at least” 100 new B-21 bombers, the Air Force ought to be requesting 174 of the jets, in order to field a dozen deployable bombers with each of 10 Air & Space Expeditionary Forces (AEFs), said retired Lt. Gen David Deptula, dean of AFA’s Mitchell Institute.

Chairing a panel on “The Evolution of Stealth” at ASC17, Deptula said the Air Force must conserve its heaviest hitters and add to their numbers.

“What we really need is 120 combat-coded B-21s,” which translates to a fleet of 174 of the jets in order to have some in test, maintenance, training, depot, and some for attrition, he said.

Napreduje

Citat:Nineteen months into the highly classified B-21 stealth bomber program, things are moving as planned with drawings being completed and released and a Preliminary Design Review completed, Air Force Rapid Capabilities Office Director Randall Walden said at ASC17.

In a panel discussion on acquisition affordability, Walden said the program so far is meeting its goals: to design an aircraft that can “hold any target on the planet at risk”—meaning it can penetrate any air defense system now planned—and deliver “at least” 100 airplanes “on time, on cost, with the best value.”

To quicken its delivery, Walden said, the B-21 is based on “mature technologies” and will “leverage those lessons learned” from the B-2, F-22, and F-35 programs.

“Our biggest activity right now is putting out drawings to build the bomber,” he said, the airplane having passed its first major milestone—Preliminary Design Review. The next task is to “get on with the first builds of the structure.”

Programmatically, he said, the B-21 is “doing quite well,” having “plagiarized” the structure and culture of Lockheed’s “Skunkworks” model: It’s being built by a small team with clear direction, avoidance of requirements changes, and management that “doesn’t get in the way.” That said, he noted the B-21 program still has to follow the 5000-series of acquisition rules. In order to reduce costs, the B-21 is being built for open mission systems, meaning future upgrades don’t have to be supplied by the prime contractor. Toward that end, he said the program is working with MIT’s Lincoln Labs to build standards that will allow any qualified vendor to work on the program.
