Depends if you're expecting LOS, BLOS, etc.

A combo?
Physical range/combat radius might mean you don't need to deploy from ships - an MQ-9 flew from Grand Forks ND to 78N, circled around a bit, and returned for a 25.5h mission last Sep. Granted its endurance will be lower with weapons, etc but still probably enough to deploy from the same bases as the associated MPA.

The MQ-25 Stingray expects to have their pilots on the carrier in OSINT articles. However, with BLOS, they could be anywhere.

In theory, a RPA could remain ONSTA for 2+ MPA missions. I suspect the CONOPs would be very similar to an 'overland' sortie. Launch Recover crew/mission crew that takes control/hands over control at "point X".

The "short deck" idea would extent the MPA and, possibly, allow for them to be used without an MPA.

Yes, except that would need to be Canadianized. Can't just take something that will work/works now and you know..."use it".

Interesting.
Indeed.

OS news is limited, but I'm inclined to buy myself a ticket to Hawaii this summer to cheer on my GA colleagues.

RIMPAC 22 will also be the first time a SeaGuardian will be fully integrated with a Fleet Command Center through the secure SIPRNET and Joint Range Extension Protocol (IP based) to pass classified tracks.

Obviously, I need to get my DLN courses finished up so I can keep up to speed on some of this stuff. I had no idea it was this far along, and this capable.


There's a decent video piece in the Day 2 at Sea Air Space video.

200nm range, 360 RADAR? MX-15? 10 A-size/pod. I wonder what the max # Gs is.m Anti/de-ice? Pretty impressive. This would be an extremely interesting project to be on/Sqn to be on once operational.

It's great to see this tech maturing. It's equally sad to know, if the RCAF ever sees kit like this, I'll be squinting at it on a screen from the old folks home.

That definition of IOC leaves a lot of room for PMs to maneuver. It is not something tangible that can be practically applied to every project have have consistent timelines come from it. How that definition is applied differs from project to project.

Particularly in large projects with significant CISOE, IOC can be well into equipment delivery, training development and implementation and other aspects.

So, for example, new aircraft requiring new facilities and changes to airfields may have quite late IOC dates due to time lags in preparing and sequencing construction.
Be that as it may, the point remains that IOC, per se, is a defined term in DND’s Project Approval Process, and of course each project staff must apply the specifics of their own project to parse
The definition into something that TB (or the MND if appropriate) will accept for PA(Def)/PA(Imp).

Team Poseidon, consisting of CAE, GE Aviation Canada, IMP Aerospace & Defence, KF Aerospace, Honeywell Aerospace Canada and Raytheon Canada:


Did they leave anyone out to partner up with a mystery competitor?

An LRP bidder with IMP as a partner?

Looks like we know what we're getting to replace the Aurora :ROFLMAO:
