Cobham Enables Airbus A330 Air-to-Air Refuelling Flight Demonstrations — Press Release

Cobham Enables Airbus A330 Air-to-Air Refuelling Flight Demonstrations

WIMBORNE, United Kingdom – Cobham air-to-air refuelling pods have successfully demonstrated the ability to transfer fuel from the Airbus Military A330 Multi Role Tanker Transport (MRTT) to Spanish Air Force F-18s with a series of “probe-to-drogue” contacts during recent flight trials.

The 905E refuelling pods, built by Cobham Mission Equipment at Wimborne, UK, represent the Company’s latest generation Aerial Refuelling System, which is the first and only hose & drogue system in the world to employ a dual redundant hose response system — a major contributor to world leading mission availability. During a series of contacts conducted during November 2009, the refuelling system transferred fuel to receiver aircraft and demonstrated effective hose response throughout the trials.

“These ‘wet contact’ flight trials are a major milestone in the development of the A330 MRTT’s tanker capability,” said Iain Gibson, vice president of Cobham Mission Equipment. “This achievement reinforces Cobham’s expertise and position as the world leader in delivering air refuelling solutions to meet the strategic and tactical tanker requirements of air forces around the globe.”

The Royal Australian Air Force A330MRTT platform used for these flight tests is similar in configuration to the solution that Northrop Grumman intends to propose to the US Air Force in response to the KC-X Tanker requirement. The A330 MRTT with 905E pods has also been selected for the UK MoD FSTA programme, the Saudi Arabia Air Force and the United Arab Emirates Air Force.

About Cobham:

Cobham’s products and services have been at the heart of sophisticated military and civil systems for 75 years, keeping people safe, improving communications, and enhancing the capability of land, sea, air and space platforms. The Company has four divisions employing more than 12,000 people on five continents, with customers and partners in over 100 countries and annual revenue of more than £1.4bn / $2.1 billion.

Cobham Mission Equipment is the world market leader for air-to-air Refuelling, providing fourth generation ‘nose to tail’ solutions from the cockpit of the donor aircraft to the tail of the receiver platform. To date, more than 1,000 systems have been delivered for buddy-buddy refuelling and for tactical and strategic tanking for fixed and rotary wing aircraft, with expertise now extended into the development of autonomous UAV to UAV refuelling.

Air Force Buys Five Global Hawks

Despite the debate in Congress over how many Global Hawks could be ordered with the 2010 money the Air Force went ahead and used their Continuing Resolution Authority (CRA) money to buy five. The House had written into their version of the Defense Appropriations bill that only three could be purchased due to concerns with delays in the program. The Senate had said five. The bill currently is in Conference as the two versions are reconciled. It is proving to be a long process as their are several key differences between the two.

Northrop Grumman was awarded a contract worth a little over $300 million for the five aircraft plus supporting equipment.

Battlefield Simulation Gets Communications Reality Boost

- A new emulation tool called software virtual networks (SVNs) closes a threatening force readiness gap by adding realistic communications effects to battlefield simulations -

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 25 /PRNewswire/ — From Kriegspiel to DARWARS, the goals of military simulation have remained constant – predict battle outcomes and build warfighter skills. Today’s advanced battlefield simulations deliver experiential realism in force positioning, troop movement, supply routing, enemy force detection and engagement, and damage calculation. For warfighters depending on next generation network-centric systems however, there is a new domain that these wargaming systems don’t encompass.

In net-centric warfare, the warfighter’s lifeline is a flow of information being transmitted and received over ad-hoc mobile networks. Minute by minute, that lifeline is impacted by myriad invisible threats, including environmental, technical and cyber. Present day scenario planning and tactical training exercises don’t recognize these threats; they either assume perfect communications or simulate only the physical layer of communications in a rudimentary way, like line-of-sight. Nor do they take into account predictable realities like delays. This practice is creating a threatening force readiness gap by negatively training commanders and warfighters to perform in conditions based on unrealistic premises – something warfighters would be better off not getting at all.

Simulated Battlefield, Real Communications

A compelling solution to this negative training problem is a new class of advanced emulation-based tools called software virtual networks (SVNs). SVNs take battlefield simulation to a new level of realism by adding the rigors and uncertainties of in-field communications like urban environment effects, message delays or drops, signal jamming, and sophisticated cyberattacks like denial-of-service and wormholes. SVNs can interoperate with a wide range of simulation platforms without the need for extensive re-programming or systems integration.

First introduced in 2008 by Scalable Network Technologies of Los Angeles, CA, SVNs are being utilized for advanced military programs such as the U.S. Army’s Brigade Combat Team Modernization Program and the Joint Tactical Radio System. SVNs are exact digital replicas of physical networks in virtual space – indistinguishable from real networks. Unlike traditional communication simulation technologies, SVNs interoperate with existing networks and devices, software applications, network management tools, and people – at real time speed. SVNs emulate protocols at all layers of complex networks and can digitally replicate hundreds or thousands of communication points.

The communications realism of SVNs benefits simulation and training in situations that involve either large numbers of radios and computers in a single battlespace, or fighting units and support teams networked across multiple geographic areas. Today, simulations in these scenarios do not generally take into account network priorities such as voice communications interrupting and delaying the data and video streams. That’s negative training, and it’s not good enough to prepare warfighters who depend on all three communications streams to accomplish their missions. SVNs eliminate this negative training problem by connecting to real battlefield applications – like force tracking and battle command – and handling all of the communication traffic (sensor feeds, video, data, and voice) including their priorities, interference and delays.

With this realistic communications emulation in place, changes to conditions that affect battlefield outcomes can be automatically taken into account by the SVN as entity positions, network traffic and threats evolve. Or condition changes could be made manually by instructors to fit specific training scripts. Either way, the effects of traffic levels, environment/terrain, and cyber threats can be accurately modeled, and warfighters positively trained to meet real-life network conditions with tested responses.

Powerful Solution, Simple Implementation

Because SVNs are inherently designed to interoperate with real networks, devices, and applications, adding their powerful capabilities to existing simulation and training systems is a relatively simple task. With computer-generated forces (CGF) applications, the SVN can be integrated with simple plug and play application interfaces to serve as the “communication network effects” component of the system. Because of their ability to represent up to thousands of network nodes, adding an SVN to a CGF application enables commanders and planners to evaluate the effect of the “state of the network” on operations and battle outcomes at the platoon, company, battalion, and brigade command levels.

In the case of a large distributed simulation system, such as the U.S. Air Force’s Distributed Mission Operations (DMO), adding realistic communications effects with an SVN would be a simple process that would not require modifying the existing applications. Software would be installed at each site that would intercept the packet data flowing onto the wide area network. All communications traffic would be routed through the SVN during a training exercise, and the SVN would distribute the communications across the system. Changes to variables affecting communications can be automated through the SVN or controlled by commanders and instructors running the distributed training exercise.

Network Awareness Eliminates Negative Net-Centric Training

If you’re going to fight in the desert, you train in desert conditions. Network-centric warfare requires the same kind of realistic preparation. As “assets” and “targets” move rapidly to the cyber domain, warfighters need training in conditions as close to what they’ll experience in the field as possible. Adding SVNs to existing simulation and training systems can eliminate the risk of negative training by equipping forces with the knowledge and confidence to use battlefield networks to their maximum advantage before they face down a real enemy.

Scalable Network Technologies will be publicly demonstrating how SVNs can be used in battlefield simulation and training applications at the 2009 I/ITSEC Conference, booth 2719, November 30 – December 3 in Orlando, FL.

New Gulfstream G650 Completes First Flight — Press Release

New Gulfstream G650 Completes First Flight

SAVANNAH, Ga., Nov. 25 /PRNewswire/ — Gulfstream Aerospace, a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics (NYSE:GD) , today announced that its newest business jet and the flagship of its fleet, the ultra-large-cabin, ultra-long-range Gulfstream G650, successfully completed its first flight.

Flown by experimental test pilot Jake Howard and senior experimental test pilot Tom Horne, the G650 took off from Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport at 1:41 p.m. local time today with flight engineer Bill Osborne on board. Because pilots were alerted to a slight vibration in a landing-gear door, they curtailed the testing regimen as a precautionary measure. The aircraft landed 12 minutes later.

“We are pleased to announce that the G650 successfully completed its first flight today,” said Pres Henne, senior vice president, Programs, Engineering and Test, Gulfstream. “Systems were fully operational. The aircraft achieved an altitude of 6,600 feet and a speed of 170 knots. Flight controls and characteristics performed as expected. We consider this flight a success and look forward to pursuing our full flight-test plan.”

Under its own power, the G650 rolled out of the Savannah manufacturing facility on Sept. 29, 2009. It remains on schedule for type certification by 2011, followed by entry-into-service in 2012.

The G650 offers the longest range at the fastest speed in its class. Powered by best-in-class Rolls-Royce BR725 engines, the business jet is capable of traveling 7,000 nautical miles at 0.85 Mach and has a maximum operating speed of 0.925 Mach. Its 7,000-nautical-mile range means the G650 can fly nonstop from Dubai to Chicago. With an initial cruise altitude of 41,000 feet at 0.85 Mach, the G650 can climb to a maximum altitude of 51,000 feet and avoid traffic and inclement weather.

With its all-new aerodynamically optimized wing, the G650 can meet the latest takeoff certification requirements. At maximum takeoff weight, the aircraft can depart from a 6,000-foot runway.

Passenger comfort is one of the G650′s main attributes. The aircraft features the largest purpose-built business-jet cabin, which leaves room for larger galleys and lavatories, and increased storage. The jet, which seats 11-18 passengers, also has 16 Gulfstream-signature oval windows that measure 28 by 20.5 inches, the biggest in the industry

The G650 provides the most productive cabin environment. A cabin altitude of 4,850 feet at FL510 and 3,300 feet at FL410 reduces fatigue, increases mental alertness and enhances productivity. A quieter cabin allows for a better environment for conversation or relaxation.

The aircraft comes with the new Gulfstream Cabin Essential(TM) package, so a single-point failure will not result in the loss of functionality. That means a toilet always flushes; water is always available; and an entertainment source always works.

Additionally, the G650 features the PlaneView(TM) II cockpit, the most advanced flight deck in business aviation, and an Advanced Health and Trend Monitoring System (AHTMS) to support aircraft maintenance planning and enhance availability.

Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics (NYSE:GD) , designs, develops, manufactures, markets, services and supports the world’s most technologically advanced business-jet aircraft. Gulfstream has produced some 1,800 aircraft for customers around the world since 1958.

BAE Systems Working On Future Royal Navy Ships

The Royal Navy has one major program underway right now. This is the new aircraft carrier which hopefully will deliver the two largest carriers used by the service in its history. Now BAE Systems has announced that they are designing the new surface combatants that will support these ships as well as perform general duties. The company has just started on a preliminary design for the two destroyers. If all goes well a production contract will be awarded in about ten years. The RN hopefully will buy up to twenty of these ships.

The U.S. Navy’s DDG-1000 and Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) programs are their new warships but those programs have suffered from development and cost issues. Right now the DDG-1000 is on hold while the U.S. continues to build DDG-51 class ships. The LCS program was to have two different designs built by Northrop and General Dynamics but now a down select is planned for one ship only.

The British Government faces major budgetary pressures due to the world’s economic doldrums and social spending. This along with the cost of operations in Afghanistan may lead to limits on how many ships may be built in the future. The carrier program itself may be delayed if funding issues persist. Despite the need for new surface ships it is not necessarily the best time for programs like this.

Eurofighter: 200 Aircraft in service, Nothing Comes Close — Press Release

Eurofighter: 200 Aircraft in service, Nothing Comes Close

_GLD3690The 200th Eurofighter Typhoon produced by the four partner companies of the European consortium, was delivered by EADS Deutschland to the German Luftwaffe today during a ceremony held in Manching, close to Munich, Germany. This milestone makes the Eurofighter Typhoon the only new generation multi-role aircraft to reach the impressive figure of 200 examples in service.

The Typhoons – produced by EADS Deutschland, EADS CASA, BAE Systems and Alenia Aeronautica – are now in service with 12 units in six air forces replacing 11 aircraft types, thus confirming that the Eurofighter is not only the best performing multi-role aircraft available on the market but also the most effective and best value solution to meet the air defence requirements of air forces and nations worldwide. To date the fleet has flown over 70,000 flying hours in total with above average operational availability and unmatched operational performances.

The Eurofighter Typhoon is the choice of the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Spain, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Austrian Air Forces which have in total ordered 707 aircraft. Recently, four Royal Air Force Typhoon aircraft flew a record breaking flight of 18 hours to the Falkland Islands in the South Atlantic Sea, to take over Quick Reaction Alert (QRA) duties from the Tornado F3s. In similar operational roles, the Luftwaffe has been on NATO air policing duties in the Baltic states; the Italian Air Force is carrying out air policing duties over Albania and the Austrian Air Force – that has received all 15 ordered aircraft – provided security for the air space over a NATO Defence Ministers event in Slovakia.

Enzo Casolini, Eurofighter GmbH CEO, said: “This milestone is the best example of the success of this joint European programme. The Eurofighter Typhoon is not only the world’s leading frontline combat aircraft but is also the biggest industrial collaboration in Europe. Confirming the plan agreed in the past by the four nations for the production of this aircraft means the Eurofighter can keep securing 100,000 jobs across 400 different companies and the huge benefits provided to the four nations’ economies for long terms”.

Background information:

Eurofighter Typhoon is the world’s most advanced new generation real multi-role/swing-role combat aircraft available on the market and has been ordered by six nations (Germany, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom, Austria and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia). With 707 aircraft under contract, it is Europe’s largest military collaborative programme and delivers leading- edge technology, strengthening Europe’s aerospace industry in the global competition. More than 100,000 jobs in 400 companies are secured by the programme. Eurofighter Jagdflugzeug GmbH manages the programme on behalf of the Eurofighter Partner Companies: Alenia Aeronautica/Finmeccanica, BAE Systems, EADS CASA and EADS Deutschland, Europe’s foremost aerospace companies with a total turnover of approx. €88 billion (2008).

An Intelligent Approach to High-Level Security: AWARE™ Rules Engine Automates Event Recognition for Immediate Response — Press Release

An Intelligent Approach to High-Level Security: AWARE™ Rules Engine Automates Event Recognition for Immediate Response

Centralized, Easily Monitored Interface Provides Instant Detection, Analysis and Response

MOUNT LAUREL, NJ – (DATE) – Airports, military bases, high profile government agencies and industrial complexes are among the first organizations to take a new approach to the highly complex world of security. AbeoTS’s Automated Warning and Response Engine (AWARE™) takes an advanced, preemptive stance on security by automating all possible security scenarios and intelligently building rules into an engine for responding to event detection.

The sheer complexity of today’s security systems for large premises forces them to function as reactive (and often forensic) devices in the event of a security breach; with so many cameras and perspectives to monitor, security personnel are likely to miss events as they happen and spend hours manually searching for the events after they occur.

AWARE fulfills today’s security standards by providing instant detection, analysis and response in a single geospatial graphical interface, merging the dozens of separate data streams that usually result in sensory overload for monitoring personnel into a compelling GUI based on AbeoTS’s extensive 3-D expertise. The intelligent rules engine dramatically reduces false alarms, prioritizes and correlates events automatically, responds in real-time while facilitating multi-jurisdictional communication, and integrates into existing legacy systems and sensors.

“Rather than providing an expensive security system overhaul, the AWARE solution presents cost-effective, efficient security by integrating into existing security systems to greatly reduce human error with a centralized, convenient interface,” said William Adams, CEO of AbeoTS LLC. “With AWARE, organizations can custom-set the correct recipients for alerts and alarm messages for real-time event response.”

In addition to prompt response to events, the AWARE solution increases manpower efficiency through its convenient sensor monitoring interface, reduced false alarms and instant, targeted event messaging. AWARE’s flexible architecture offers a truly scalable and repeatable security solution.

Also perfect for corporate campuses and other large complexes, the AWARE system has already been integrated internationally into four airports, two military bases and several industrial complexes.

Built-In Rules and Scenario Processor

AWARE’s event correlation engine monitors events from sensors, examines events for specific patterns and generates messages when specific patterns occur. The scenarios within the rules and scenario processor define the logic for detecting event patterns and message templates for broadcast to recipients.

Adams elaborates: “If a camera goes down, AWARE reconfigures and moves to a higher threat level. The sensor automatically responds, covers the affected area and notifies the proper message recipient.”

A Geospatial Common Operational Picture (GeoCOP): The Control Center Simplified

AWARE’s geospatial control center integrates sensor data into an interface of satellite images and facility plans. The common operational picture empowers the security operator with lifelike images for intuitive navigation to isolate alerts.

Monitoring personnel can leverage the picture that GeoCOP creates to monitor vast areas, make security determinations quickly and accurately, and witness security activities as they unfold.

About AWARE

AWARE™ is a unique advanced command and control, self-aware and self-healing nucleus designed to elevate existing or new security systems to the highest levels of performance possible. Through automated detection and messaging and an intuitive interface, AWARE helps military, government, airport and industrial organizations leverage existing security equipment for maximum operational efficiency.
