In 2001, RAND helped the United Kingdom_s Ministry of Defence (MOD) evaluate different acquisition strategies that it might use to acquire the new-generation Type 45 destroyer. RAND_s analyses helped in determining whether the MOD should have the Type 45 built by one company or two, whether it should compete the 12 ships in the class or directly allocate work to specific shipbuilders, and whether companies producing the Type 45 should construct the destroyer in its entirety in one shipyard or from blocks produced in several shipyards

The United Kingdom has many contracted and prospective shipbuilding programmes on the horizon over the next two decades. The UK Ministry of Defence wants to know whether the United Kingdom's existing industrial base will be able to meet the requirements of this shipbuilding plan. Using extensive surveys and a breadth of data, RAND researchers look at the capacity of the UK shipbuilding industrial base and how alternative acquisition requirements, programmes, and schedules might affect MOD plans

Transport aircraft are vital for both strategic and tactical tasks to support national security objectives, military exercises and training, and humanitarian aid. Despite a decreasing fleet size, and an increasing need for maintenance and upgrades, the Ministry of Defence is meeting the requirement for Hercules aircraft to transport military personnel and freight in Iraq and Afghanistan. Hercules aircraft are available to fly on planned missions 85 per cent of the time.This report found increased stress on the aircraft has been caused by landing on unpaved airstrips in Iraq and Afghanistan, additional use of air drops, as well as a change from transporting people and equipment over long distances to making short flights in theatre. More ’wear and tear' has resulted, and increased maintenance costs. Fatigue, which decreases the life span of the wings, is accumulating more rapidly than in the past. The Department has had to retire four aircraft during 2006 and plans to retire a further five C-130Ks during this year, ahead of their planned retirement date of 2010. The Department will also need to address shortened wing life on the newer C-130J. The initial estimate for the number and type of spares for the C-130J was inaccurate, leading to some spares shortages. Whilst the shortages have not been allowed to affect aircraft deployed in Afghanistan or Iraq, on average Hercules C-130J have been unable to fly for 24 days a year for lack of parts. The Department has a shortage of engineering staff, and the RAF estimates that additional personnel would give increased aircraft availability. The focus on operations has meant there are fewer aircraft available for training. Aircrew on operations in Iraq and Afghanistan fly on average 60 hours per month, as opposed to 13 hours for aircrew based in the UK. Simulators are not able to replicate fully flying the Hercules C-130, as they have not kept pace with modifications and upgrades to the aircraft. As a result, there is a danger that the broader skills base of crews could be eroded in the future. There are also significant risks to the future ability of the Department to provide sufficient airlift to the armed forces. These include the withdrawal from service of the Hercules C-130K, the late delivery of the planned A400M transport aircraft, and a reduction in the anticipated service life of the C-130Js wings from flying in more challenging environments during operations. These issues could leave the RAF with a shortage of fixed wing aircraft
Differences between military and commercial shipbuilding : applications for the United Kingdom's Ministry of Defence( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the United Kingdom, the shipbuilding industry is sustained largely by the government's purchases of naval and naval auxiliary vessels. The desire for a continuing efficient and robust shipbuilding industry has prompted the UK Ministry of Defence to ask: Can the United Kingdom's shipbuilding industry compete more broadly in commercial or foreign military markets? The prospects for broadening UK shipyards' customer base appear to be poor. The United Kingdom would face strong competitors in attempting to re-enter the commercial shipbuilding market. Japan and South Korea dominate the market for ships of low and moderate complexity, mostly cargo ships and tankers of varying types. EU shipyards dominate the market for more-complex ships such as passenger vessels, although that market segment is also under pressure from Asian shipbuilders. The United Kingdom certainly has a stronger industrial base to support military sales than it does in the commercial arena, but the match between most current UK military ship products and global demand is not a close one. The military export market is largely a market for modestly priced frigates and small conventionally powered attack submarines. It is not clear that a UK shipyard could build a conventional submarine at a competitive price; UK warships are, in general, too sophisticated and expensive to make them interesting to potential importers. Furthermore, export contracts often require that most ships in an order be built in the importing country, thus limiting the benefit such sales may have for the exporter's construction workforce
