U.S. Deployed World Most Advanced Submarines To South China Sea United States deployed several fast attack submarines to the Asia Pacific region. In the past month, U.S. sent three advanced, stealth and fast attack submarines, including Los Angeles-class nuclear powered USS Alexandria (SSN-757), USS Chicago (SSN-721) and USS Louisville (SSN-724). Internal military reported that at least one has entered the South China Sea water. These boomers are deployed to the U.S. 7th Fleet area of operations in support of security and stability in the Indo-Asia-Pacific. The submariners will participate in a series of community service projects and sporting events during its deployment to Subic Bay in the Philippines. On February 19, 2017, Los Angeles-class attack submarine USS Alexandria (SSN 757) arrived at Fleet Activities Sasebo for a visit as part of its Indo-Asia-Pacific deployment. The visit strengthens the already positive alliance between the U.S. and Japan through the crews' interaction with the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force. It also demonstrates the U.S. Navy's commitment to regional stability and maritime security in the U.S. 7th Fleet area of operations. Alexandria is an improved Los Angeles-class submarine with some of the most advanced submarine systems in the world. Its speed, stealth, mobility and sheer firepower make it one of the most powerful weapons in the U.S. national defense arsenal.

Breaking News - U.S. Navy Send 4 Advanced Electronic Warfare Fighter Jets , E/A-18G to Philippines United States sent 4 advanced carrier-based electronic warfare aircraft, E/A-18G Growler, and 120 support personnel to Clark Air Base in the Philippines. The E/A-18G Growler is an airborne electronic attack plane capable of tactical jamming and electronic protection to U.S. military forces and allies around the world. It is the most advanced airborne electronic attack platform designed to suppress ground defenses for other strikes, and jams enemy radar while the aircrew eliminates the target. It can defend itself against any air attack with its own arsenal of air-to-air missiles. Its mission to the Philippines is to help train the country’s forces and patrol its airspaces and sea lanes. The U.S Navy said that the Growler will support routine operation that enhance regional maritime domain awareness and assure access to the air and maritime domains in accordance with international law. The deployment comes amid concerns that China's artificial island-building in the South China Sea will target Scarborough Shoal, which lies about 140 miles west of the main Philippine island of Luzon. The shoal is little more than a few rocks jutting out of the water at high tide but is claimed by both the Philippines and China.

U.S. Receives New State-Of-The-Art Radar, AN/TPS-80 Ground/Air Task Oriented Radar Northrop Grumman Electronic Systems, a global security company that provides systems, products, and solutions to government and commercial customers worldwide, presented its new AN/TPS-80 Ground/Air Task Oriented Radar or G/ATOR at a receiving ceremony March 29, 2017, at its facility in Baltimore. The ceremony included presentations by lead project managers from both Grumman and the Marine Corps, a tour of the facility and a presentation of the G/ATOR system. It marks the day the Marine Corps takes possession of the first factory built model of the G/ATOR System, according to Chief Warrant Officer 5 William Kelly, a G/ATOR project officer. “This system puts the Marine Corps, for the first time, above our sister services in technology,” said Kelly. G/ATOR is the first air cooled, mobile, Active Electronically Scanned Array radar in the Marine Corps’ arsenal. In comparison to other AESA radars, which use liquid cooling, the G/ATOR is lighter and more transportable. The new G/ATOR system provides multi-faceted detection and tracking capabilities to engage a wide range of hostile threats, as well as offering air traffic control capabilities. The system is replacing five existing Marine Corps single-mission radars known as legacy systems and is capable of performing multi-mission tasks at lower operation and maintenance costs. “Not only is it easier to set up, in-place, displace, and move, but mobility-wise it’s what the Marines are focusing on when they are employing this system,” Kelly said. “It’s much more mission oriented compared to my legacy systems. There’s just a huge difference with this, it puts us on the cutting edge of technology.” The G/ATOR is going to bring game changing capabilities as a sensor to the entire Marine Air-Ground Task Force, said Col. Matthew Culbertson, from Headquarters Marine Corps Department of Aviation. “What it really provides us is a modern sensor, that has great agility, that we can employ from the high end fight down to the Marine Expeditionary Unit level, and when you combine this with everything else that the MAGTF is doing in order to become a fifth generation MAGTF, it sort of brings it all together,” Culbertson said. Beginning as just a draft in the early 2000s, the G/ATOR was approved for production in 2014 and began low-rate initial production in the first quarter of fiscal year 2015. Taking 28 months to build just one unit, the Marine Corps intend to field a total 45 units to support the Aviation Combat Element as well as the artillery units with the Ground Combat Element. “We are grateful to Northrop Grumman and their team for what they’ve done and PEO (Program Executive Officer) Land Systems and their team in terms of fielding this capability,” Culbertson said. “It takes a lot to bring it all together and that’s not lost on Gen. Davis, the Deputy Commandant for Aviation, so he is very grateful.” The final operational capability, when the last unit is delivered, is scheduled for early 2024. Capabilities: 1. Multipurpose Tracking & Surveillance Radar 2. Proven S-band (2–4 GHz), 3D Radar 3. Detects fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft, cruise missiles, and UAVs 4. Performs ATC and fire finder roles 5. High mobility, transportability, and reliability 6. The entire system can be airlifted into an operational site by three CH-53E Super Stallion heavy-lift helicopters or MV-22B Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft, or by a single C-130 transport. 7.The system is required to be set up on-site within 45 minutes. 8.Provides identification of friendly aircraft using a Telephonics UPX-44 IFF (Identification Friend or Foe) integrated with the main radar. ___________________ CREDIT ----------------------------- Final Count by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) Source: http://incompetech.com/music/royalty-free/index.html?isrc=USUAN1100657 Artist: http://incompetech.com/

U.S. Deploys Most Advanced Anti-Ballistic Missile Defense System To South Korea United States will deploy its most advanced anti-ballistic missile-defense system, the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) to the South Korea. This deployment would put U.S. and allies at an advantage strategic defense position against China, North Korea and Russia. THAAD anti-ballistic missile system would be able to shut down any ballistic missile and InterContinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) from China or North Korea up to 150 km in altitude within 200 km radius, when operating in forward-base mode. The missile carries no warhead but relies on the kinetic energy of the impact to destroy the incoming missile. It weights 900kg and can travel at a Mach 8.24, or 2.8 km/s. The fastest ICBM can travel up to Mach 23. THAAD is a unique missile-defense system with unmatched precision, capable of countering threats around the world with its mobility and strategic battery-unit placement. It has a track record of 100% success rate. Its powerful Raytheon AN/TPU-2 radar is used to detect, track, and discriminate ballistic missile in the terminal phase of flight. Once an enemy target is identified, THAAD's Fire Control and Communications (TFCC) support team kicks in. If there is a decision to engage the incoming missile, the launcher fires an interceptor from truck-mounted launcher to destroy the incoming missiles. THAAD deployment worry China. Its Foreign Ministry said in a statement posted on its website that the deployment will "do nothing to help with denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, and will harm regional peace and stability".

Breaking News - Future Aircraft Carrier USS John F. Kennedy (CVN 79) Is 50 Percent Completed U.S. shipbuilder Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII) announced that the structure of future nuclear-powered aircraft carrier John F. Kennedy (CVN 79) is now 50 percent complete. The second Gerald R. Ford-class aircraft carrier USS John F. Kennedy (CVN 79) grew about 70 feet in length with the addition of the lower stern, which was recently lifted into place at Huntington Ingalls Industries’ Newport News Shipbuilding division. Like USS Gerald R. Ford, USS Kennedy is being built using modular construction, a process where smaller sections of the ship are welded together to form larger structural units, equipment is then installed, and the large super lifts are lifted into the dry dock using the company's 1,050-metric ton gantry crane. The Navy plans to test and operate a new, highly-sensitive ship-defense radar technology for its 2nd Ford-Class aircraft carrier -- to detect incoming enemy fire, anti-ship cruise missiles and airborne threats such as attacking drones, fixed-wing aircraft or helicopters. The new radar, called the Enterprise Air Surveillance Radar, or EASR, is slated to go on the now-under-construction USS Kennedy (CVN 79), as well as several of the services amphibious such as the LX(R) and its third big-deck America-class amphibious, LHA 8. The AN/SPY-6 is described by radar engineers as being 35-times more powerful than most-current ship-based radar systems; developers say it enables detection of objects twice as far away and half the size compared with existing radars.

US Military - F35A Ready for Combat Mission Worldwide The US Air Force on Tuesday declared its first squadron of F-35As ready for battle. This is 15 years after Lockheed Martin won the contract to design and build the plane. It is the most expensive weapons system ever built at a cost of $400 billion. The aircraft has significantly improved from the early days of the program; its stealth, electronic warfare and sensor fusion capabilities are urgently needed for future conflicts. It has the ability to penetrate defensive airspace and deliver precision munitions with sensor suites that fuses data from multiple information sources. It can also provide close-air support, air interdiction, and limited suppression and destruction of enemy air defense missions. Its stealth capability as well as the avionics capability allows the F35A to see the enemy and kill the enemy well before they even see it or know that it’s there. The Air Force’s F-35A is one of three variants of the aircraft, designed to conduct conventional landings and take offs. The F-35B, used by the Marine Corps, is capable of short take-offs and vertical landings, and the Navy’s F-35C is built for use on aircraft carriers. The Air Force now can send its first operational F-35 formation — the 34th Fighter Squadron located at Hill Air Force Base, Utah — into combat operations anywhere in the world. The service, which plans to buy 1,763 F-35As, is the single-largest customer of the joint strike fighter program, which also includes the US Marine Corps, US Navy and a host of governments worldwide. The Air Force will operate the largest F-35 fleet in the world with more than 1,700 aircraft. General Hawk Carlisle, the commander of Air Combat Command, said "The F-35A will be the most dominant aircraft in our inventory, because it can go where our legacy aircraft cannot and provide the capabilities our commanders need on the modern battlefield.”

SOUTH CHINA SEA, U.S.-China Military Aircraft Dangerous Close Encounter - Update On February 8th 2017, a Chinese military airborne early warning aircraft, KJ-200, came dangerously close to a U.S. Navy surveillance aircraft, P-3C Orion, in the South China Sea. U.S military said the aircraft came within 1,000 feet (305 meters) of each other on Wednesday in the vicinity of the Scarborough Shoal, between the Philippines and the Chinese mainland. The Chinese aircraft essentially crossed the nose of the American plane, causing it to make an immediate turn. US Pacific command spokesman said that the incident occurred in international airspace above the South China Sea, while the U.S. Navy P-3C was on a routine mission operating in accordance with international law. The issue will be addressed in appropriate diplomatic and military channels. China’s defense ministry told state media that the Chinese pilot responded with “legal and professional measures” during the inadvertent encounter. While Global Times states an unnamed defense ministry official said that China hope the U.S side keeps in mind the present condition of relations between the two countries and militaries, adopts practical measures, and eliminates the origin of air and sea mishaps between the two countries. The Lockheed P-3 Orion is a four-engine turboprop anti-submarine and maritime surveillance aircraft operated by the United States Navy. The aircraft is equipped with a magnetic anomaly detector (MAD) in the extended tail. This instrument is able to detect the magnetic anomaly of a submarine in the Earth's magnetic field. The limited range of this instrument requires the aircraft to be near the submarine at low altitude. Because of this, it is primarily used for pinpointing the location of a submarine immediately prior to a torpedo or depth bomb attack. The P-3C Orion is equipped with Air-to-surface missile, AGM-65 Maverick, AGM-84 Harpoon and AGM-84 Standoff Land Attack Missile. It can drop different bombs including Depth charges, Mk 101 Lulu nuclear depth bomb, MK20 Rockeye, and MK80 Series general purpose bombs.

US Navy Deadly Rail-Gun To Be Deployed on Zumwalt Destroyers For the past several years, the Navy has been developing the weapon, and it publicly tested one in 2014. The Navy planned to install a prototype railgun on a high-speed vessel, but the latest estimates suggest the prototyping stage could be pushed back until 2017. To avoid this unfortunate delay, Fanta proposed the idea of skipping the prototype phase and installing an operational unit on the USS Johnson, the Navy’s third and final next-generation Zumwalt-class destroyer that is slated for deployment in 2018. The railgun is different from conventional weapons, using electricity instead of an explosive material like gunpowder to fire a projectile. The railgun works by delivering a high-power electric pulse to a pair of conductive rails. This pulse creates a powerful magnetic field that accelerates the projectile out of the gun. Though it lacks the explosive power of a conventional weapon, the Navy’s railgun is not a “sissy” weapon. It can fire a 23-pound projectile over 100 miles at speeds of up to Mach 7 (roughly 1.5 miles per second). This rate of travel generates enough kinetic energy to inflict significant damage on a long-distance target. Besides being powerful, the railgun also is affordable, with railgun projectiles costing 1/100th the price of conventional missiles.

Breaking: John Bolton Surprise Visit To Israel Amid Controversy In Syria U.S. National Security Adviser, John Bolton visits the Western Wall in the Old City of Jerusalem, amid controversy of U.S. troop withdraw from Syria. President Donald Trump's national security advisor says the U.S. will not abruptly withdraw its military from Syria. Bolton's comments are the first public confirmation that the withdrawal process has been slowed down. Trump was widely criticized when he announced a U.S. military withdrawal from Syria that was supposed to happen within weeks. More than two weeks after U.S. President Donald Trump declared victory over the Islamic State terror group in Syria, and announced the withdrawal of U.S. forces, military planners are insisting the pullout be based on conditions on the ground and not an arbitrary timeline. The latest comments represented a striking change in tone from the messaging that came from the White House when the president announced his decision to withdraw last month. "Our boys, our young women, our men, they're all coming back and they're coming back now," Trump said in a video posted on his Twitter feed Dec. 19.

Breaking News - UK Deploy Modern Carrier Strike Group to South China Sea Britain's ambassador to the United States said that its Typhoon fighter currently deployed on a visit to Japan would fly across disputed parts of the South China Sea to assert international overflight rights and freedom of Navigation. He added that Britain absolutely share the objective of Obama administration, and Trump one, to protect freedom of navigation and to keep sea routes and air routes open. Trump has said he plans to build up the U.S. military, and advisers have said he will pursue a policy of "peace through strength" in the Pacific in the face of China's growing assertiveness. The advisers say Trump can also be expected to take a more "robust" approach to naval operations to assert navigation rights in the South China Sea, a vital global trade route. By 2020, UK will deploy two new aircraft carriers, HMS Queen Elizabeth Class, and update its defense forces to the Asian Pacific region. HMS Queen Elizabeth, the largest ever build British warship, weight 72,000 ton, will be armed with F35-B Lightning jets and Merlin helicopters for airborne early warning and anti-submarine warfare. Its weapons include the Phalanx Close-In Weapons System for anti-aircraft and anti-missile defence; also 30mm Automated Small Calibre Guns and Miniguns for use against fast attack craft. The system moves munitions on pallets by means of remotely controlled electric vehicles and lifts. The carrier is capable of carrying up to forty aircraft, and is scheduled to be formally commissioned in May 2017. The ship is the second biggest aircraft carrier ever build in the world. USS Nimitz class carrier is the biggest one ever sail the sea.

U.S. all Domains War Game in South Korea United States, and the Republic of Korea will kick off the largest war game in water surrounding the South Korea, beginning March 21, 2017. The exercises involved U.S. Navy ships assigned to Command Task Force (CTF) 30, and CTF 70, to strengthen maritime interoperability and tactics, techniques and procedures. This year additional surface, subsurface, and air assets joining the bilateral exercise include aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson, Carrier Air Wing 2, Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyers USS Barry (DDG 52), USS Wayne E Meyer (DDG 108), USS McCampbell (DDG 85), USS Stethem (DDG 63), Los Angeles-class nuclear fast attack submarine USS Columbus (SSN 762), and P-3 and P-8 Maritime Patrol and Reconnaissance Aircraft from Commander Task Force 72. The exercises will consist of a routine bilateral training, subject matter expert exchanges, anti-submarine and anti-surface warfare drills, communication drills, air defense exercises, counter-mine planning and distinguished visitor embarkations. Rear Adm. James Kilby, commander, Carl Vinson Carrier Strike Group said that this exercise is yet another example of the strength and resolve of the combined U.S. and the ROK naval force, the U.S. and the Republic of Korea share one of the strongest alliances in the world, and we grow stronger as an alliance because of our routine exercises here in South Korea, and the close relationship and ties that we forge from operating at sea together. His counterpart, Rear Adm, Choi, Sung-Mok, the chief of staff for the Republic of Korea Fleet said, that this defensive exercise focuses on enhancing the interoperability between the ROK and US navies, and helps both navies maintain a combined defense posture to protect the ROK from future North Korean unprovoked acts of aggression. USS Carl Vinson carrier strike group deployed to the region under U.S. 3rd Fleet command and control, including beyond the international dateline, which previously divided operational areas of responsibility for 3rd and 7th Fleets. Third Fleet operating forward offers additional options to the Pacific Fleet commander by leveraging the capabilities of 3rd and 7th Fleets. This operational concept allows both numbered fleets to complement one another and provide the foundation of stability in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region. The U.S. Navy maintains a presence in the Indo-Asia-Pacific to help preserve peace and security and further our partnerships with friends and allies. Our forward presence contributes to freedom of navigation and lawful use of the sea, as well as furthers operational training and enables an exchange of culture, skills, and tactical knowledge.

The Most Sophisticated Satellite Surveillance Telescope in US Air Force U.S. Air Force takes possession of Space Surveillance Telescope (SST), developed by DARPA, to monitor space junk or object that pose a threat to military satellites in orbit. U.S. military experts agreed that having the capability to monitor that orbit is "a critical capability for the US military, as they have a lot of very important satellites in GEO, and are increasingly worried about threats to those satellites." This telescope is the most sophisticated space surveillance telescope ever developed and is ready to begin tracking thousands of space objects as small as a softball. The telescope also can search an area larger than the continental United States in seconds and survey the entire geosynchronous belt in its field of view -- a quarter of the sky -- multiple times in a night. The director of strategic plans, programs, requirements and analysis for Air Force Space Command said that the world and the threat have changed, we no longer have the luxury of assuming that we operate in a benign environment that conflict will only be on land or at sea or in the air. Now we must concern ourselves with a conflict that may extend into space. Russia and China, by the year 2025, will be able to hold at risk every one of our satellites in any orbit. So if the United States and our allies are to deter adversaries from taking action against our interests, we must do it from a position of strength. SST is and will be part of our space situational awareness system. It allows us to discern our adversaries' intent early on, and we have the strategic warning necessary to support stringent timelines required for us to respond to any kind of attack in space with confidence.
