EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Williams Aerospace and Manufacturing (WAM), a Kellstrom Defense company, has completed the acquisition of metal forming equipment, formerly employed by Titanium Specialties, Inc. (TSI) and leased a fabrication facility in Taft, California. The former TSI business has a long history of being tooled to manufacture a wide range of legacy aerospace formed metal assemblies.

This transaction has enabled WAM to add specific equipment and tooling that enables the in-house manufacture of complex formed sheet metal assemblies. This capability includes drop-hammer, hydroforming, and hot forming equipment that will be used to transform aerospace grades of aluminum, carbon, stainless steel, and titanium into aircraft integrated assemblies. WAM's Chula Vista, California business team will administer the operation of this fabrication center and coordinate forming for current and future business.

PRATT & MILLER DEFENSE ANNOUNCES ROBOTIC COMBAT VEHICLE PARTNERSHIP WITH QINETIQ NORTH AMERICA
Monday, October 14, 2019
WALTHAM, Mass. - QinetiQ North America (QNA) and Pratt and Miller Defense are partnering on the Robotic Combat Vehicle (RCV) program at the 2019 Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.

QNA is a leading provider of unmanned systems for the defense market with over 20 years of experience helping the US Military develop and field advanced, safety-critical, robotic solutions. Currently supporting the US Army with robotic systems from 20 pounds to 20 tons, QNA is focused on modular interoperable solutions that ensure the systems fielded today are ready for tomorrow's threats.

QNA and Pratt & Miller will submit a variant of the Expeditionary Modular Autonomous Vehicle (EMAV) tailored to the Robotic Combat Vehicle program's specific requirements. The Robotic Combat Vehicle submission will leverage QNA's modular open architecture unmanned ground vehicle control systems integrated with Pratt & Miller's advanced mobility platform. The resulting system is a robust non-developmental solution demonstrated to fulfill the Government's required attributes. The RCV base platform has been proven through direct warfighter experimentation to be agile, powerful, and highly reliable.

"QinetiQ North America has focused on fielding advanced technical solutions to help our military counter emerging threats for over 25 years," stated QNA's President Jeff Yorsz. "We are excited to team with a company that has equal passion of providing groundbreaking real-world solutions to our warfighters."

Pratt & Miller Defense specializes in the development and manufacturing of advanced vehicles and systems for the demanding requirements of the military. Matt Carroll, Pratt & Miller CEO expressed his support of the team "Our combined cultures of innovation and expertise in supporting the warfighter will provide the US Army with a mature world class solution for the RCV program."

The RCV configuration of EMAV will be displayed at AUSA 2019 in Washington, D.C., October 14-16.

DALLAS -- Jacobs was awarded a contract to develop the program requirements and standards that will transform Tyndall Air Force Base (AFB) into a visionary Installation of the Future (IotF). Jacobs is contracted as a subconsultant to KBR to support and advance the redevelopment of Tyndall Air Force Base. The objectives of reconstruction are to restore the full operational capability of the installation to serve as the prototype for future IotF's.

Tyndall AFB located 12 miles east of Panama City, Florida, sustained a direct hit from Category 5 Hurricane Michael, one of the strongest hurricanes to hit the U.S. in more than 25 years. The devastating storm inflicted immeasurable, lasting damage across the region and resulted in significant damage and destruction across the installation.

At Tyndall AFB, Jacobs has transitioned the master planning effort into zone development plans and completed 42 program requirements packages which comprise the $2.8 billion Military Construction Program funding request to the U.S. Congress. Additionally, Jacobs is tasked with updating the installation's facility standards to be consistent with IotF requirements, developing a master program schedule, conducting analysis for delivery methods and preparing reoccurring risk and opportunity planning in support of the Project Management Office's efforts.
