RESC002 - CV-22

DESCRIPTION: Procure 65 (estimate) CV-22 tilt-rotor aircraft to replace AF’s 107 HH-60G and 33 HC-130N/P Combat Search and Rescue (CSAR) aircraft.

JUSTIFICATION: HH-60G is rapidly approaching its flying hour service life limit. Consequently, CAF will soon require either a service life extension program (SLEP) for HH-60G or procurement of a replacement aircraft for conducting CSAR operations. Furthermore, HC-130N/P is also approaching its service life limit for the aircraft’s center wing box structure. Therefore, CAF will also require a service life extension program (SLEP) for the HC-130N/P or procurement of a replacement aircraft for conducting search operations and aerial refueling of CSAR HH-60G aircraft. Studies are ongoing to determine optimum solutions for CAF.

PROGRAM ELEMENT: 27224F

ISSUES: HH-60G System Program Office (WR-ALC/LU) is assessing whether HH-60G’s service life limit is 8,000 flight hours, IAW the Army specification for the H-60 airframe, or actually closer to 7,000 flight hours based upon AF configuration and operating gross weights of the HH-60G. Depending on the assessment results, HH-60G aircraft (1981 models) will begin reaching their service life limit as early as FY00, if service life limit is determined to be 7,000 flight hours. Otherwise, if the limit is determined to be 8,000 flight hours, 1981 model HH-60G aircraft will begin reaching their service life limit in FY03.

RESC006 - Upgraded Communication, Navigation/Integrated Electronic Warfare (UCN/IEW) Program

DESCRIPTION: Provides the HH-60G aircraft with the following essential capabilities:Very High Frequency (VHF) radio with Single Channel Ground to Air System (SINCGARS) transmission capability and controllable by both pilots’ Control Display Units (CDU) via the MIL-STD-1553B databus (1553 bus).

JUSTIFICATION: HH-60G currently has extremely limited interoperable/beyond line-of-sight communication and self protection capability. UCN/IEW program will allow HH-60G to communicate with all necessary CSAR agencies via upgraded communication systems such as ARC-222 VHF radio and ARC-210 multiband UHF radio. These upgraded communication systems will be fully integrated onto the Mil-Std-1553 databus and controlled by the pilots’ Navigation System Control Display Unit (CDU). UCN/IEW program also allows HH-60G to conduct CSAR operations in up to a medium threat environment via upgraded IEW systems such as ALR-69 RWR, AAR-47 MWS, and ALE-47 chaff/flare countermeasures dispensing system. These IEW systems will be fully integrated an controlled by an Electronic Warfare Management System (EWMS). The UCN/IEW systems also contribute to reduced pilot workload/task saturation via systems integration and centralized control.

PROGRAM ELEMENT: 27224F

ISSUES: Funding needs to be moved to the left from current budget in order to streamline funding and make it a more executable program. This is in concurrence with the HH-60G SPO and Air Staff PEM. UCN/IEW is one of only two currently funded programs for the HH-60G beyond FY00. Furthermore, this program is absolutely essential to the aircraft for enhancing its capability to communicate with all necessary agencies and surviving in up to a medium threat environment, when prosecuting rescue missions of downed aircrew members/survivors.

RESC013 - AN/ALQ-16 Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR)

DESCRIPTION: All HH-60G aircraft are currently equipped with Group A kits for the AAQ-16 FLIR system. However, only 58 Group B kits have been procured for the CAF thus far. Procurement of an additional 41 Group B kits (plus two spares) is still required.

JUSTIFICATION: HH-60G aircraft require FLIR systems for obstacle/terrain avoidance during limited ambient light or adverse weather conditions. Additionally, FLIR is required for HH-60G hover cues during rescue hoist/insertion operations and for visual horizon reference during limited illumination conditions for night over water hoist operations.

PROGRAM ELEMENT: 27224F

ISSUES: This is one of only two funded programs for the HH-60G beyond FY00. However, current programmed funding for this effort is not available until FY04 and FY05. The current programmed funding is late to need. Funding is required beginning in FY00 in order to expeditiously complete purchase of these essential FLIR systems for the HH-60G. By advancing this program to FY00, FLIR capability will be available to all CAF aircraft four to five years earlier than currently programmed.
