SÃO PAULO -- Helibras has delivered the 33rd H225M helicopter to Brazil as part of the H-XBR program. This is the third H225M delivered to Brazil in 2018 and the second to the Brazilian Army. The aircraft will be based on the 1st Aviation Battalion (BAvEx) in Taubaté, joining another 10 ten H225M aircraft already delivered to the Brazilian Army.

The helicopters are being delivered under the 50-helicopter H-XBR program. The BRL1.5 billion contract under H-XBR was signed in June 2008. With the May delivery, the total number of aircraft delivered to Brazil under H-XBR is now 28. Production is expected to be completed in 2022.

The H225M of the Armed Forces has been manufactured in Itajubá since the inauguration of the company's new production line in 2012. Licensed-production, industrial offsets, and technology-transfer programs are important in Latin America since many countries are seeking to expand their developing defense industries. In fact, Brazil will no longer consider procurements without technology transfer included in the contract and also requires locally produced equipment. In order to reach that level of national content, Helibras has developed a supply chain and local suppliers that currently consists of 37 Brazilian companies.

NEWTOWN, Conn. -- Images of the United Arab Emirates' first C-295W have emerged.

On October 10, 2018, the publication Scramble posted an image on its social media page of the first C-295W for the UAE. The aircraft was seen on October 2 on a runway in Seville, Spain, at manufacturer Airbus' facility. The aircraft carries the serial number '820'. Another image that emerged on jet spotters' websites shows the aircraft undertaking a test flight ahead of delivery.

The UAE signed a contract for the procurement of five C-295Ws last year, in November. These, according to Defense News, likely cost the UAE around $250 million. In a press release after the contract's signing, Airbus noted, ""Deliveries will begin in the fourth quarter of 2018."

Once in service, the C-295Ws will replace older CN-235s in the Emirati Air Force.

The aircraft will bolster the UAE's lift capabilities. A fact sheet on Airbus' website notes that the C-295 has a range of 2,000 nautical miles with a 6.0 ton payload and has the capacity to stay up to 11 hours in the air. In recent years, the UAE has expanded its mission profile into Yemen and East Africa, increasing the Air Force's need to be able to move equipment and personnel.

PHILADELPHIA -- The U.S. Navy has awarded Teledyne Wireless of Rancho Cordova, Calif., a $7.5-million firm-fixed-price contract (N00383-19-C-D002) for the repair of the ALQ-99 system in support of EA-6B Prowler aircraft. The contract does not contain a provision for an option quantity and only one source was solicited for this non-competitive requirement pursuant to the authority set forth in 10 U.S. Code 2304 (c)(1), with one offer received.

The contracted work will be performed in Rancho Cordova, Calif., and is expected to be completed by November 2021.

The Navy has obligated the full $7.5 million in Working Capital funds at the time of the award, none of which will expire at the end of the current fiscal year. The U.S. Naval Supply Systems Command Weapon Systems Support, Philadelphia, Pa., is the contracting activity.
