Japan defense export hopes dimmed by latecomer status

TOKYO (AP) – A year after Japan eased a longstanding ban on military exports, barely a trickle of deals has formed for its powerhouse manufacturers who are reckoning with latecomer status in a crowded global industry.

Following Japan’s defeat in World War II, its defense manufacturing industry was confined to the domestic market apart from some joint projects under the Japan-U.S. security alliance. Partly in response to China’s rising military assertiveness, Japan last year loosened restrictions on technology transfers and sales of military equipment.

Industrial giants such as Kawasaki Heavy Industries seem poised for a windfall from an industry that worldwide has more than $400 billion in annual sales but ambitions are hitting a wall. So far, the only known deals in the pipeline are the possible sale of Soryu-class submarine technology to Australia and ShinMaywa Industries’ US-2 amphibious aircraft for India.

After decades of near isolation from the global defense industry, “Japan is not up to speed with global trends,” said Toru Hotchi, director of the Defense Ministry’s Equipment Policy Division and Japan’s go-to person for procurement.

Hotchi shares with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe the mission of selling Japan’s defense equipment. He travels to industry fairs and visits foreign militaries to study global defense and weapons trends. He also fields contacts from foreign governments and companies seeking opportunities from Tokyo’s loosening of restrictions on military equipment and technology transfer.

“Japan can make anything, in principle, except for nuclear weapons,” Hotchi said in an interview. “The potential is high.”

Japan’s home market is only worth about 1.5 trillion yen ($12.5 billion) annually. Big-ticket sales overseas could enable its defense contractors to scale up, increasing profits and slashing costs for the Ministry of Defense as it stretches its budget to upgrade outdated hardware and beef up defenses against China.

The MAST, or Maritime Systems and Technology, exhibition opened Wednesday in Yokohama, showcasing Japanese and foreign military products, including aircraft, weapons and associated naval and aerospace technology — anything that can be used in maritime security and surveillance, as well as disasters and rescue operations. Giant foreign contractors like Lockheed Martin and Babcock and military officials from “friendly” nations are there, too.

A scaled-down US-2 and a Soryu submarine on display at the Japan booth welcomed visitors as soon as they enter the exhibit hall, where Defense Minister Gen Nakatani visited for a brief tour Wednesday.

Japanese manufacturers exhibited at last year’s MAST expo in Istanbul, Turkey, but will have a much larger presence in Yokohama, said Warren Edge of the Paris-based exhibition organizer.

“From our exhibitors’ perspective, yes, it’s a big market and we are looking forward to doing this for Japan,” Edge said.

Defense exports have gotten a slow start, partly because Japan lacks the marketing and technology transfer expertise of the U.S. and other major exporting countries.

“Those skills will have to be built, and they’re going to have to build them while they are competing with their ally the U.S. in a defense export market,” said Jack Midgely, an executive officer at Deloitte Tohmatsu Consulting Co. in Tokyo and an expert on the defense industry.

In the U.S., military-related exports are mostly conducted through the Foreign Military Sales program under the Defense Security Cooperation Agency.

The system provides the products, financing, training and logistical support to foreign militaries, which is backup Japan is ill-equipped to offer. To address that issue, Japan plans to set up an agency to oversee defense equipment research and development, and procurement, to cut costs and improve efficiency.

Hotchi said Japan is best off focusing on disaster relief and reconnaissance, areas unlikely to raise the hackles of neighbors still resentful over past wartime aggression. It also can expand cooperation with the U.S., Australia and other developed nations in joint production, logistics and other support for advanced military technology, he said.

“The U.S. sets the global defense equipment standard,” Hotchi said. “Equipment that is not used by the U.S. is not going to be a viable business.”

Hotchi acknowledges that his hardest sell is in Japan.

“Japanese companies are not really prepared to compete,” he said. “They don’t know how, because their customer up to now was 100 percent the Defense Ministry, and they’ve never had to make any marketing effort.”

Still, some progress is evident.

Australia’s Defense Minister Kevin Andrews has invited Japan to participate in the selection process for a partner to jointly design and build a submarine, Gen Nakatani, Japan’s defense minister, told reporters last week.

Japan should focus on areas such as its diesel submarine propulsion technology, which is unique and advanced, Hotchi said.

Another star product is ShinMaywa’s US-2 amphibious aircraft, which is on India’s shopping list. The company, based in western Japan’s Hyogo prefecture, refused comment on those negotiations, citing sensitive timing.

Hotchi and others say Japan can also take over production of equipment and parts no longer made in the U.S. For example, last year Tokyo approved plans to make seeker gyros used in the PAC-2 missile defense system.

“We’re entering a new world and we would have to adapt to a different way of doing business and address issues like high cost, one at a time,” said Shoji Sato, Vice President and General Manager of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, a major Japanese defense contractor that makes the Soryu submarine.

Japan’s participation in the U.S.’s F-35 Lightning joint strike fighter jet program, as a customer and as a supplier of regional maintenance and logistics support, may promote sales of its own components for the jet, Midgely said. It’s no guarantee, though: the other 11 countries participating are also competing for contracts.

Mark Burgess, customer business director for Honeywell Aerospace in the Asia-Pacific region, said the participation of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and other Japanese suppliers in the Boeing’s Dreamliner 787 and 777X projects shows they are an affordable option for outsourcing aerospace manufacturing.

Makers of Formula 1 race cars, used to meeting the same exacting specifications as for aircraft, could find new opportunities in making parts, supplying logistics and other segments of the larger market.

Another promising area is 3-D printing, where parts are very sophisticated and tolerances of error are minuscule.

“This isn’t going to open a multibillion dollar industry overnight, but I think there’s going to be some tangible benefits,” Burgess said.

What's for sale as Japan eases military exports rule

TOKYO (AP) – As Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe oversees an increase to the country’s military capability, he has also eased a decades-old ban on military exports, enabling defense contractors to expand their markets beyond Japan’s Self-Defense Forces. Here are some export or technology transfer deals Japan is pursuing:

___

AMPHIBIOUS AIRCRAFT: India is considering buying ShinMaywa Industries’ US-2 amphibious aircraft. If the deal goes through it would be the first fully assembled military export from Japan in decades. Indonesia has also showed interest in the search-and-rescue aircraft, which costs about 12 billion yen ($100 million), can land and take off from rough seas with waves as high as 3 meters (almost 10 feet). Japan’s Maritime Self-Defense Forces has seven US-2s.

___

SUBMARINE TECHNOLOGY: Australia has invited Japan to participate in developing a next generation submarine using its 2,950-ton Soryu-class diesel-electric propulsion system. Japan has 6 of the advanced non-nuclear submarines, equipped with an air-independent propulsion technology acquired from Sweden, and armed with torpedoes and Harpoon missiles. Germany and France are also vying for the 50 billion Australian dollar ($40 billion) project to replace Australia’s Collins-class submarines in 2025-2030.

___

MISSILE COMPONENTS: At Washington’s request, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. was authorized in 2014 to export seeker gyros, which it makes for the Patriot Defense Capability-2 surface-to-air missile defense system, to U.S. defense contractor Raytheon. Raytheon stopped making the gyro, a sensor used to identify, track and chase targets, opting to license manufacturing to Mitsubishi in an arrangement that could become a model for cooperation.

___

SEEKER TECHNOLOGY: Japan last year approved joint research with Britain on Japanese seeker technology in a European project developing Meteor missiles. Japanese defense officials say they hope to develop technology that can be used in F-35 stealth fighter jets that Japan plans to buy for its Air Self-Defense Forces.
