BAE Systems Wins 40 Mk4 Naval Gun Contract for Brazil

BAE Systems has been awarded a contract to produce and deliver five Bofors 40 Mk4 Naval Guns for the Brazilian Navy’s 500T ‘Macae’ Class Patrol Vessels. The 40 Mk4 gun is the latest naval version of the successful Bofors 40 mm Gun that is used by many Navies and Coast Guards around the world. Series production for the guns starts immediately with deliveries beginning in 2016 and continuing through 2018. A portion of the manufacturing of parts, subsystems, as well as final assembly and test will take place in Brazil through BAE Systems’ new and long-term partners. The company recently teamed with Ares Aeroespacial e Defensa S.A. of Rio de Janeiro for manufacturing, assembly, and installation, as well as after-sales activities for the 40 Mk4 guns. In addition to Brazil, countries currently using BAE Systems’ 40 mm Guns include Japan, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Estonia, Uruguay, Indonesia, and Malaysia.

BAE Systems Lays Off Another 80 Workers

BAE Systems plc has laid off another 80 workers at its Melbourne yard, with fears it will completely run out of work early in 2016. From a peak of 1,300 workers installing superstructure on new navy amphibious ships and constructing hull blocks for air warfare destroyers, the workforce has fallen to about 800.

BAE Systems Demonstrates Ability to Support Ground Troops with Precision Guidance Kit for Artillery Shells

BAE Systems live fire test demonstrated that its Rokar Silver Bullet precision guidance kit can transform a standard 155mm artillery shell into a highly accurate munition. The system’s advanced ability to self-correct in flight greatly increases effectiveness while reducing collateral damage, allowing for more precise engagement in urban environments and against protected targets. The most recent live fire event, held in February in Israel, was the latest in a series of demonstrations with several customers including a successful firing performed with South Korean defence contractor, Poongsan Corporation. In these tests, more than 150 Silver Bullet precision guidance kits have been tested over several years of development. Conducted in severe conditions over challenging terrains including land and sea, the firing tests highlight the system’s mature design and resulting high reliability. The majority of kits in these demonstrations hit within 10 meters of the target. The Silver Bullet’s in-flight high correction capability reduces the need for an aiming process as its enhanced accuracy greatly increases the ability to hit a target with the first shot fired. Compatible with existing inventories of conventional artillery shells, the GPS-based Silver Bullet can be assembled in the field by the soldiers as a standard artillery fuze to provide highly accurate, self-correcting capability. The system has proven its versatility through successful firings from a number of artillery guns including the M109 and the K9 barrel and has been proven effective on several types of shells including the M795 and the K307.
