2001-06-22, Serge Pod: IAI's LAHAV Combat Aircraft Division displays upgraded aircraft 22 June 2001 Israel Aircraft Industries' LAHAV Combat Aircraft Division has developed upgrade two packages for aircraft originally produced in the United States and Russia, a C-130 and an MI-17, both of which are on display at this year's Paris Air Show. The upgrades extend the aircraft operational life, reduce ownership costs and provide for higher crew efficiency and operational capability. The upgraded C-130 system improves flight safety and crew efficiency by reducing the pilots' workload. It uses an advanced display system and integrates the data presented to the crew, allowing them to concentrate on the operational and flight-safety tasks. The avionics system meets all Global Air Traffic Management (GATM) requirements. The centralised, open architecture approach used for the C-130 avionics system is based on a single operational software programme which is the only software that needs to be updated to integrate new systems. This approach…

2001-06-15, Serge Pod: Eurofighter launches AMRAAM and ASRAAM 12 June 2001 The Italian Eurofighter prototype DA7 has completed a two-week series of weapons trials at the Decimomannu range on Sardinia. AMRAAM, ASRAAM and AIM-9L Sidewinder missiles were launched from the aircraft. An AMRAAM S/CTV missile (Advanced medium range Air-to-Air Missile Separation/Control Test Vehicle), an inert warhead test missile with a motor to check the separation trajectory from the aircraft was launched in level flight from a height of 3,130 feet at a speed of 0.9 Mach. The test confirmed the Eurofighter's optimum launch platform qualities and the reliability and maturity of the aircraft systems. The DA7 prototype's test cycle also included the first launch of an ASRAAM (Advanced Short Range Air-to-Air Missile) from a height of 5,000 feet at a speed of 0.89 Mach. This is an inert warhead operational missile fitted with the instrumentation necessary for data exchange with a Ground Station. BAE SYSTEMS has completed the load survey for the baseline…

2001-04-07, Dron: By Richard Stenger CNN (CNN) — Beginning a new chapter in Mars exploration, NASA on Saturday launched a powerful new orbiter to scour the Red Planet for evidence of underground water and geologic hot spots. The $300 million Mars Odyssey should become the first spacecraft to visit Mars since two disastrous failures in 1999. Mars Odyssey will search for water, map surface minerals and measure radiation levels — observations that could provide clues about possible extraterrestrial life. < !-- ======= WRAPPER ======= --> < !-- ======= /WRAPPER ======= --> "Life on Earth was not a cosmic fluke but part of a broad imperative," Ed Weiler, NASA deputy administrator, told reporters Friday. "Mars is a lot like Earth. And billions of years ago it had some kind of atmosphere and huge quantities of flowing water." The spacecraft blasted off into clear morning skies aboard a Delta II rocket from Cape Canaveral, Florida. It should reach Mars in October after a journey of 286 million miles (460 million…

2001-03-29, Dron: PALMDALE, Calif., March 26, 2001 — Extensive ground environment tests conducted on the Boeing Joint Strike Fighter X-32B demonstrator last week confirmed the aircraft's short-takeoff-and-vertical-landi ng (STOVL) system operates at acoustic and temperature levels lower than predicted at full power. Mike Heinz, Boeing vice president and JSF deputy program manager, said the test data prove the Boeing STOVL ground environment is well within operational limits. "The testing verifies we meet all requirements and provide a safe operating environment for the customer," Heinz said. "We confirmed that with the X-32B at 100 percent STOVL thrust, the ground environment is at or below heat- and noise-level requirements." Ground environment tests are essential to ensure the aircraft can maintain continuous operations on takeoff and landing surfaces, and to ensure the safety of maintenance personnel working on and around the aircraft. According to Heinz, lower acoustic and vibration levels inside the aircraft provide…

2001-03-27, Dron: http://www.area51researchcenter. com/8-3-00crash3.jpg [zero size or time out] LONDON (Reuters) - Two U.S. F-15 fighters went missing on a low-flying training mission over the Scottish Highlands on Monday and rescue workers were increasingly pessimistic after reports of an explosion. "As each hour and minute goes by, we are profoundly concerned about their fate," Royal Air Force spokesman Michael Mulford told Reuters after the fighters were reported overdue. "In search and rescue, one never says never but at this point it is difficult to be anything but pessimistic," he said. Contact was lost on both radar and radio from the fighters, on a training flight from their Lakenheath base in England. "Someone has reported an explosion in the Cairngorms. We now have two Nimrod aircraft, three helicopters, two RAF mountain rescue teams and several civilian teams all searching," the spokesman said. He said there were no reports of distress beacons. "This is something of a mystery. We are very concerned about the fate…

2001-02-17, Serge Pod: Apache Longbow demonstrates aerobatics at Avalon 15 February 2001 http://defence-data.com/storypic /ah64acrobatic.jpg [not image] The multi-role AH-64D Apache Longbow combat helicopter is in the spotlight this week at Australian International Airshow 2001, performing a series of loops and rolls designed to demonstrate the aircraft's aerobatic prowess. While Apache Longbow is fully aerobatic, it doesn't need to be. The radar is capable of picking up all ground and airborne targets within an area of more than 50 square kilometres — all with a single scan. And the weapons can be aimed and fired by the crew's simply looking at the target. The Apache Longbow, produced by The Boeing Company in Mesa, Ariz., is competing for the Australian Army's Armed Reconnaissance Helicopter program, an effort known as Air 87, which will enhance Australian Army and Australian Defence Force capabilities. Boeing says Apache Longbow offers Australia a low- risk, cost-effective and off-the-shelf solution to its defence needs.…

2001-02-03, Serge Pod: IAI develops MI-8 & MI-17 tactical upgrade package 2 February 2001 A modular Tactical Upgrade Package for modernising the Russian MI-8 and MI-17 helicopters has been developed by Israel Aircraft Industries, Ltd. (IAI). These assault helicopters, manufactured in the thousands, are in operational service in many countries. Most of them, however, require upgrading to enable them to operate effectively in modern battlefield conditions. IAI's upgrade package includes a modular Avionics System based on the "Glass Cockpit" concept, an Electronic Warfare suit, and a flexible armament package. The Lahav Division's upgrade uses subsystems, which were designed for the Russian MI-35 and KA-50-2 attack helicopters, and so achieves a common architecture for both assault and attack helicopters. http://defence-data.com/storypic /mi17glasscockpit.jpg [not image] The new glass cockpit The upgrade transforms the old cockpit into modern computerised crew stations, which include multifunction electronic displays that enable the…

2001-01-27, Dron: WASHINGTON — After bombing missions against Japanese targets in 1944, three troubled American B-29s made emergency landings at the Soviet town of Vladivostok in southeastern Russia. The U.S. pilots assumed that as allies, they would be in friendly Russian hands. But they were wrong. "They didn't realize what was going to happen to the airplanes. But when you're on fire, you look for a place to land," said George Larson, the editor of "Air and Space/Smithsonian Magazine." Soviet leader Joseph Stalin eventually released the crews, but he ordered the B-29 Superfortresses seized and copied. He put his security chief Lavrenty Beria in charge of thousands of engineers and workers — using fear and patriotism to drive the project. Failure could land workers in exile in Siberia. < !-- ======= WRAPPER ======= --> < !-- ======= /WRAPPER ======= --> The crews dismantled one of the planes into 105,000 parts, created blueprints and then reproduced the bomber in just two years.

2001-01-14, Serge Pod: F-16 test aircraft is retired 11 January 2001 http://defence-data.com/storypic /aftif16.jpg [not image] F-16 serial number 75-0750 has completed a distinguished career as an advanced technology test aircraft for more than 22 years. It is best known for its service as the Advanced Fighter Technology Integration (AFTI)/F-16 technology demonstrator since the early 1980s. Aircraft 750 flew its final flight on Jan. 9, 2001 from its birthplace in Fort Worth, Texas, to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio, where it will be retired and placed in the Air Force Museum there. AFTI/F-16 "The AFTI/F-16 has been an excellent platform because of the F-16's basic modern systems, the relative ease of incorporating advanced technologies and the F-16's low cost of operation and maintenance," said Don Swihart, AFTI Programme Manager at the Air Force Research Laboratory in Dayton. "The AFTI/ F-16 has been a real workhorse in proving advanced fighter technologies, and it is fitting that this aircraft have its final…

2001-01-04, Dron: Indian brand new fighter jet successfully passed initial flight tests. According to army representatives who observed the actual flight over flight center in Bangalore, it's an enormous achievement of the national industry. Development of a light fighter jet began in India 17 years ago, however engineers faced many problems and delays in the program. Apparently, it will take another 10 years or more for the plane to enter service with Indian Air Force. India is still hoping for eventual export orders for this plane however many experts say that by the time new plane arrives to international market, it's development technology will become far too old to be competitive.

2000-12-23, Serge Pod: Boeing JSF X-32A goes supersonic 22 December 2000 http://defence-data.com/storypic /x32aflight.jpg [not image] The Boeing Joint Strike Fighter X-32A concept demonstrator aircraft broke the sound barrier yesterday, expanding the flight envelope and meeting another of the company's 'up- and-away' test objectives. Lt. Col. Edward Cabrera, US Air Force lead test pilot assigned to the Boeing X-32A test programme, took the X-32A to 30,000 feet and exceeded Mach 1.0 in achieving supersonic flight. The flight was the aircraft's 49th since its 18 September first flight. "The X-32A approached and exceeded Mach 1 effortlessly, demonstrating significant tactical potential,'' Cabrera said. "I'm very impressed with the fact that the plane continues to fly as predicted based on extensive modelling and simulation.'' Frank Statkus, Boeing vice president and JSF general manager, said the milestone puts an exclamation point on what has been an extremely productive flight-test programme to date. "As planned, we completed the…

2000-12-21, Serge Pod: KC-10 Tanker Refuels X-32A Joint Strike Fighter (Source : US Department of Defense ; issued Dec. 20, 2000) EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif.---The Joint Strike Fighter program reached a significant milestone here Dec. 19 when a KC-10 Extender from Travis Air Force Base, Calif., performed the first aerial refueling of Boeing's X-32A Joint Strike Fighter concept demonstrator. http://www.defense-aerospace.com /data/.../data/2000Dec4268/JSF01 .jpg [not image] The Travis crew, part of the 6th Air Refueling Squadron, joined people from Edwards' 418th Flight Test Squadron for the X-32A's 40th sortie. A five-month test period began here Sept. 18. This mission involved three contacts between the X-32A and the KC-10. Because the X-32A is the Navy's JSF version, the KC-10 was required to refuel the X-32A with a drogue and probe. This required X-32A lead test pilot Cmdr. Phil Yates to carefully maneuver the fighter's refueling probe to a basket receptacle that flies freely behind the tanker. Even though probe and drogue…
