The model, known as SigMA (short for Signature Measurement Aircraft), is the culmination of a series of signature demonstrations validating affordability and risk reduction for the next phase of the JSF programme, Engineering and Manufacturing Development (EMD). "The SigMA configuration was developed directly from our Preferred Weapon System Concept design, which continues its strong linkage to our X-35 demonstrator aircraft and will be highly representative of our EMD proposal configuration,'' said Henry J.

2000-04-01, Serge Pod: Farnborough International 2000 looms 31 March 2000 Farnborough International 2000 (FI2000) will be bigger and better than ever. Exhibition space is sold out Because of the great demand for space by Exhibitors, the Society of British Aerospace Companies (SBAC) the organiser, has provided an additional 13% of indoor space to that at Farnborough International 1998 (FI98). Amanda Stainer, SBAC's Head of Exhibitions, says: "FI98 exceeded all expectations.

The trade days are 24th-28th July with the two public days on 29th and 30th July. Peter Taylor, SBAC's Director of Exhibitions, says: "The move to July will bring warmer weather.

2000-03-22, Serge Pod: US postpones test of National Missile Defense: officials WASHINGTON, March 21 (AFP) - 21:40 GMT - The Pentagon on Tuesday postponed the next test of the US National Missile Defense system (NMD) until late June, pushing back to at least late summer a presidential decision on whether to have the controversial system deployed by 2005. The delay will mean that the Pentagon will have less time to review data from all the NMD tests before making a recommendation on the whether the system is ready for deployment, Air Force Lieutenant General Ronald Kadish acknowledged. Moreover, only 85 percent of the data from the upcoming test will have been analyzed in time for the Pentagon readiness review, which is now scheduled to be completed by the end of July, he said. But Kadish, director of the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization, told a news conference here that "We're not taking this to the point where we're doing things irrationally and rushing things unnecessarily."

2000-03-22, Serge Pod: Pentagon to send drones to Kosovo WASHINGTON, March 21 (AFP) - 00:54 GMT - The Pentagon is sending unmanned surveillance planes to Kosovo along with troops to operate them, but has no other plans to augment its forces there, Pentagon spokesman Kenneth Bacon said Tuesday. The Predator and Hunter unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have been used before in Kosovo and Bosnia to give troops a bird's-eye view of what is happening on the ground. Bacon would not say how many troops would accompany the UAVs, which were last used in Kosovo late last year but were withdrawn when the winter set in. Asked if the United States was considering augmenting its 6,300 troops in Kosovo, he said, "Not at this time." However, some 1,100 US Marines were making their way Tuesday to Kosovo as part of a 2,000-troop exercise of the strategic reserve forces for Kosovo. The other troops are from Argentina, Netherlands, Poland and Romania. France, faced with unrest in Kosovska Mitrovica, has beefed up its forces in the northern sector with…

2000-03-21, Serge Pod: Polish Air Force and Air Defense Converts Into the Future By Ryszard Jaxa-Malachowski, AWN Central European Correspondent The air arm of the Polish armed forces is undergoing an intensive conversion to become compatible with NATO standards. The Polish Air Force headquarters has already been reorganized and the head of staff General Leszek Duleba has only a single deputy, unlike his predecessor who had four deputies and even more specialized duties. The structure of the air force has also been simplified. There are two Air Defence Corps with headquarters at Bydgoszcz and Wroclaw. Deblin Aviation Academy is a single entity and a limited number of units remain independents and are subordinated directly to Gen. Duleba. Those consist of four training centers, Central Commanding Station, two regiments specialized in radiosurveilance and electronic warfare and VIP transport regiment. All those units will witness limited changes as will Deblin Academy, however difficult job lies ahead for the AD Corpses. According…

The engine contract to GE Aircraft Engines (GEAE) is valued at more than $400 million.

The -132 draws from GEAE's existing technology base, including: A long-chord, blisk fan derived from the F118 engine (B-2 bomber), a radial afterburner derived from the F120 engine (JSF) and F414 engine (F/A-18E/F), and a…

2000-03-20, Serge Pod: Ukraine, Russia Spar Over Cause of Zenit Failure Officials with Ukrainian and Russian aerospace companies traded accusations regarding the cause of Sunday's failure of a Zenit launch vehicle used by Sea Launch. Reuters reported Thursday that officials from Ukrainian aerospace firm KB Yuzhnoye/PO Yuzhmash, who built the lower two stages of the Zenit 3SL booster, said that none of their systems on the booster caused it to fly out of control and be destroyed several minutes after launch March 12. Yuzhnoye officials believe that a guidance computer on the Zenit built by the Russian firm Energia caused the booster's second stage to veer off course. Either aerodynamic stresses on the booster or an automated self-destruct system would then have destroyed the rocket. Energia officials, however, denied the Ukrainian accusations, saying it was too soon to pin the blame on the guidance computer or any other subsystem on the booster. "The Ukrainian reaction that the Russian computer is to blame for the failure of the…
