Stavatti Responds to USN UJTS RFI

On 13 July 2020 Stavatti submitted a response to the US Navy Undergraduate Jet Training System (UJTS) Request For Information (RFI). The response to the solicitation (NAVAIR RFI Serial Number 20-001/UJTS) was submitted to Procurement Contracting Officer Blake A. Strickland. An e-mail confirming the on-time receipt of the Stavatti submission was provided by a NAVAIR representative.

The Stavatti UJTS solution consisted of a non-developmental, single engine, two seat tandem Undergraduate Jet Trainer, Advanced Trainer and Ground Attack Aircraft. The aircraft will feature Martin Baker MK18 or ACES 5 zero-zero ejection seats, a JPATS Category 1-8 compliant cockpit and a single Honeywell F124 turbofan powerplant. The aircraft will be equipped with a carrier suitable arresting hook and will be capable of being launched by catapult from a Nimitz/Gerald R. Ford class carrier deck. The Stavatti UTJS will feature advanced aluminum lithium and scandium aluminum alloys throughout, benefit from Friction Stir Welding (FSW) and has a proposed unit flyaway cost in the $15 Million class. Benefiting from advanced production techniques, enhanced reliability systems, systemic Built-In-Test (BIT) and an Open Avionics Architecture (OAA), the Stavatti UTJS has a projected Cost Per Flight Hour (CPFH) of $4,052 with 2.95 MMH/FH.

Addressing a potential need to replace up to 220 USN T-45A/C Goshawks on a one-for-one basis, the non-developmental Stavatti UJTS solution may enter production and begin deliveries as early as 2021. The Stavatti UJTS will be produced at a Stavatti aircraft manufacturing plant in the USA in full compliance with the Buy America Act being 100% “Made in the USA.”

In addition to the non-developmental Stavatti UJTS solution, Stavatti can also offer the SM-28N Machete and the SM-31N Stiletto as potential alternative solutions to the UJTS requirement. The SM-28N is a navalized, advanced jet trainer variant of the single engine, two seat tandem SM-28T Machete Close Air Support (CAS) aircraft. The SM-28N will feature carrier suitable arresting gear, electromechanically actuated folding wings and a single non-afterburning F414 derivative powerplant. Sharing powerplant component and systems commonality with the F/A-18E/F, the SM-28N will have a flyaway cost in the $20 Million class with an estimated CPFH of $4,000 and 6.56 MMH/FH when equipped with a 30mm GAU-8 cannon and comprehensive ECM systems. The SM-28N is anticipated to be available for production deliveries in 2024-2025 meeting the USN requirement to have a non-developmental UJTS solution before 2028.

The SM-31N is a navalized, advanced supersonic trainer variant of the single engine, two seat tandem SM-31T Stiletto Supersonic Trainer and Light Weight Fighter aircraft. The SM-31N will feature carrier suitable arresting gear and a single F125 derivative afterburning turbofan powerplant. The SM-31N will have a flyaway cost in the $17 Million class with an estimated CPFH of $3,204 and 3.46 MMH/FH. The SM-31N is anticipated to be available for production deliveries in 2024-2026 meeting the USN requirement to have a non-developmental UJTS solution before 2028. Stavatti has secured Letters of Intent (LOIs) for the delivery of over 60 SM-31 Stilettos by US Allied Air Forces and was awarded the Design Patent for the SM-31 by the USPTO on 23 July 2020.

Stavatti Responds to USSOCOM Armed Overwatch Program

On 1 May 2020 Stavatti submitted a response to Phase 1: Request For White Papers for the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) Armed Overwatch Program Other Transactional Authority (OTA) Agreement for a Prototype Project, Solicitation Number H92408-20-OTA-ARMEDOVERWATCH. The Stavatti submission, which included an 8 page White Paper accompanied by Attachment E: Offerer Certifications and Disclosures as well as Attachment D: Supplier Response Template, proposed the SM-27T Turboprop Machete as a potential multi-domain solution to the USSOCOM Armed Overwatch requirement.

The Armed Overwatch Requirement specified a need for up to 75 Fixed or Rotary Wing Armed Overwatch Aircraft to fulfill Close Air Support (CAS), Armed Intelligence, Surveillance & Reconnaissance (ISR), Strike Coordination & Reconnaissance (SCAR), and Forward Air Control (FAC) roles. Stavatti response outlined how Stavatti has the capability necessary to meet the Armed Overwatch requirement within USSOCOM’s time-frame without causing an unacceptable delay in meeting and exceeding the needs of the warfighter.

The proposed offer of SM-27T Machete aircraft to USSOCOM includes 75 new aircraft. Aircraft delivery can begin in 2023 will full delivery of all 75 aircraft by 2027. The aircraft was offered at an average unit flyaway cost of between $15 Million and $20 Million each, depending upon USSOCOM selected sensors, avionics and electronic warfare systems. The 75 aircraft as proposed may accompanied by a support package including spares, ordnance, ground support, training and maintenance. In full compliance with the Buy American Act, the SM-27T will be produced in the USA with all systems and components produced in the USA with exception of the PW150 derivative turboprop powerplant and MX-10D/MX-15D Electro-Optical Sensor both of which will be produced in Canada in accord with USA/Canada defense trade agreements.

A two seat tandem, single engine turboprop CAS and Attack Aircraft, the SM-27T is intended to address anticipated future CAS and attack aircraft needs of both the USAF and NATO/Allied Air Forces. The SM-27 is designed to serve as a successor to attack aircraft including the A-10 Warthog, Su-25 Frogfoot, A-1H Skyraider, Super Tucano ALX, AT-6 Wolverine, OV-10 Bronco, A-37 Dragonfly, IA-58 Pucara and other attack aircraft. The SM-27 is a three surface aircraft featuring a moderate aspect ratio wing, canard foreplanes, twin vertical stabilizers and an all moving horizontal tail. With a maximum level speed of 400 Ktas, the SM-27 is armed with a 30mm cannon and will carry up to 8,000 lbs of ordnance over 2,000 nm.

Now under development by Stavatti as a privately funded, commercial program, Stavatti is undertaking a $400 Million investor funded development program including a $50 Million prototype and flight test centric Demonstration and Validation (Dem/Val) program and a $350 Million Full Scale Development (FSD) Program. The development effort will result in FAA type certification, DoD Military Qualification and Low Rate Initial Production (LRIP). The SM-27 is now being developed exclusively in the USA and Stavatti has selected a production site in the USA to serve as home to the Machete family production line. Stavatti projects producing between 50 and 100 SM-27s annually depending upon global customer needs and aircraft demand.
