Stavatti Receives LOI to Upgrade Allied Fighters

On 14 August 2020 Stavatti received a Letter of Intent (LOI) from a US Allied Air Force to upgrade more than 70 twin engine 4th generation Multi-Role Fighter (MRF) aircraft with new sensors, avionics, displays, electronic countermeasures, powerplants, wheels and brakes with US manufactured components and systems. Stavatti will also provide a structural life-improvement of the aircraft as well as install conformal fuel tanks and underwing external stores pylons that are compatible with towed decoys as well as the carriage and deployment of the AIM-9X and AIM-120C.

The upgrade will significantly improve the combat capability of the MRF aircraft, adding features including an AESA radar, wide-area flat panel LCD displays, new tires/wheels/brakes, a modern IRST. The upgrade will result in an MRF with a 59% increase in tactical radius, a 126% increase in maximum external warload, an 11% increase in maximum level speed, a 28% increase in maximum sea level climb rate, a 27% increase in Maximum Take-Off Weight and a 12% increase in maximum service ceiling over the original baseline aircraft. Stavatti also projects over a 9% reduction in aircraft Cost Per Flight Hour (CPFH) over the original type.

The upgrade will be performed by Stavatti Aerospace Ltd in the United States with Stavatti providing in-country maintenance, spares and contractor logistical support for the end-user. Stavatti estimates that the total global market for this upgrade may exceed 18 nations over the next decade.

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.
