2001-02-12, Dron: http://www.indiatimes.com/toit/1 2indi16.htm India first nation to get Su-30MKI By K.R. Sreenivas The Times of India News Service BANGALORE: India will become the first country to have the Sukhoi Su-30 MKI, two-seat, multi-purpose fighter, the Russo-Indian variant, which has enthralled the Bangloreans at the Aero India-2001 with its manoeuvrability. The Su-30 MKI is an upgrade over the Su-30 and is with the Russian Airforce only. The Irkutsk Aviation Industrial Association (IRKUT), which is going to co-produce the Su-30 MKI in partnership with the Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), will deliver the first aircraft to India by 2004-2005, after which HAL will commence licenced production of 140 Su-30 MKIs. The Su-30 MKI did not fly on Saturday as it was a rest day for ace test pilot V.I.Ayeryanov. It is scheduled to fly on Sunday. IRKUT spokesman Vitoli Zelenkov, told The Times of India that the Su-30 MKI is better than the F-22s produced by the Americans. Also, the characteristics of radar in the Su-30 MKI…

2001-01-26, Serge Pod: SBL Team test beam director design 26 January 2001 http://defence-data.com/storypic /sblifx.jpg [not image] The Space-Based Laser Integrated Flight Experiment (SBL-IFX) has new information about how to monitor and maintain the pointing of the SBL-IFX beam director on orbit. The data was collected from a recent integrated ground test of the Alpha high-energy laser, its beam director telescope and the associated beam alignment and correction system. The beam director is the part of the Air Force and Ballistic Missile Defense Organisation's (BMDO) proposed experimental missile defence system that will project the high-energy laser beam across space and focus it on a distant boosting missile target. Team SBL-IFX, a joint venture comprising Lockheed Martin, TRW and Boeing, conducted the six-second lasing test last month at TRW's Capistrano Test Site near San Clemente in California. It was carried out as part of the team's current $240 million SBL-IFX development contract with the Air Force. The test involved…

2000-12-12, Serge Pod: Boeing completes JSF X-32B structural mode tests 12 December 2000 http://defence-data.com/storypic /jsfboex32.jpg [not image] Boeing has completed structural mode interaction (SMI) testing of its X-32B concept demonstrator, moving a step closer to first flight. During SMI testing, the aircraft's flight control surfaces are moved at varying frequencies. This evaluation ensures special filters added to the flight control system are functioning properly to prevent vibration in other aircraft components. The X-32B, which is expected to fly during the first quarter of 2001, will validate the Boeing direct-lift approach to short take-off vertical landing (STOVL) flight, one of three customer requirements in the Concept Demonstration Phase of the program. "Completion of the SMI tests is another positive step as we continue to validate our design," said Katy Fleming, Boeing JSF system test director. "We're making great progress; these tests reduce risk and help confirm that we are ready to begin a safe and…

2000-12-06, Dron: Military jets of the IAF heavily abused Lebanon borders yesterday and penetrated deep into foreign airspace. According to El Mundo, these planes flew over southern and western parts of the Lebanon. Local police mentioned that low-level supersonic pass-overs caused panic among local civilians. This demonstration of military power took place only several days after USA and Israel called for Syria and Lebanon to take measures against anti-jew protests of Khesbollah extremists in these countries.

2000-12-03, Serge Pod: Airbus Military selects engine for A400M 1 December 2000 It seems the Airbus Military Company (AMC) has bowed to political pressure, rather than commercial wisdom, in selecting the engine for the A400M military transport aircraft. Yesterday it announced that "Following a full and thorough evaluation of the engines on offer, ... the engine selected for the A400M will be the TP400, to be jointly developed and manufactured by a European consortium." http://defence-data.com/storypic /a400ma1.jpg [not image] A400M At the Farnborough Air Show, following the launch of the A400M. AMC said they were aware of the possibility of a joint bid being made for the lucrative engine portion of the contract. However, AMC were adamant that since the whole concept of the A400M was based on commercial best practice, AMC would reserve the right to select the engine competitively. At that stage there were already two proposals, one from Rolls-Royce and one from Turbo prop International. The development of a joint venture for the…

2000-12-03, Serge Pod: The Gripen solution for Hungary 1 December 2000 http://defence-data.com/storypic /gripenhung.jpg [not image] SAAB-BAE SYSTEMS Gripen's response to the Hungarian government's request for information (RFI) for the modernisation of the Hungarian Air Force has proposed a solution based on the supply of up to 24 NATO-interoperable Gripen fourth-generation fighters, supported by a flexible finance package and an industrial co-operation programme. The aircraft would be delivered from 2005. Gripen says the specific benefits to Hungary would be: From 2005, the delivery of up to 24 fourth-generation NATO-interoperable Gripen fighters, (including four two-seater variants) which will form the core of Hungary's modernised air force to fulfil its national defence and NATO requirements. Linked to the procurement of Gripen, an opportunity to stimulate Hugarian industry in both the commercial and defence sectors through the development of strategic partnerships with key European companies. A long-term and flexible finance…

2000-11-29, Serge Pod: SGI Su-22 simulator for Czech Air Force 28 November 2000 http://defence-data.com/storypic /su22c.jpg [not image] The Czech Air Forces is using SGI(TM) visualisation and supercomputing technology to help train its pilots at Namest nad Oslavou. SGI, in conjunction with Virtual Reality Media and Letecke opravny Kbely, helped to develop a fully reconfigurable simulator modelled on the Russian Sukhoi Su-22 attack aircraft. The system is based on Silicon Graphics Onyx2, with three InfiniteReality2(TM) graphics subsystems. The Su-22 simulator also includes a complete set of mathematical models for all aircraft systems as defined by FAA category D, including hydraulic and pneumatic systems, instruments and indicators, and over-pressure simulation which is created by using anti-G-force trousers. "IT now plays an important educational role in all modern armies, and the implementation of the Su-22 flight simulator will help to bring the Czech Air Forces' training programme up to NATO standards," said Michal Klimes, SGI…

2000-11-17, Serge Pod: Boeing JSF X-32a begins simulated carrier landing tests 16 November 2000 http://defence-data.com/storypic /jsfxa1sm.jpg [zero size or time out] The Boeing Joint Strike Fighter X-32A concept demonstrator aircraft has begun field carrier landing practice (FCLP) tests to demonstrate flying and handling qualities during low-speed aircraft carrier approach. This is the first flight since the X-32A was grounded after a hydraulics failure caused an unscheduled landing on a dry lake bed at Edwards AFB. Engineers said they have found an interim fix to the problem and hope to have a final solution by the end of the month.. US Navy Cmdr. Phillip 'Rowdy' Yates, the US government's lead test pilot for the Boeing JSF program, and Boeing lead test pilot Fred Knox are demonstrating simulated carrier landings using a Frensel lens on the ground to provide pilot cues during their approaches to a simulated carrier deck outlined on a runway at Edwards Air Force Base. 'The X-32A demonstrated excellent low-speed flying qualities…

2000-11-15, Dron: According to several reports, Ministry of Defence of Russia declared Mi-28 as the primary assault helicopter for its chopper fleet. The decision is to be finalized and become official in December. Main contenders are Ka-50 and Mi-28. Earlier, MoD was leaning towards more elegant and reliable Ka-50 Werewolf, however fire power and greater armour has always been always given priority. Most important factor traditionally is crew-safety where Mi-28 proved to be superior. Currently, OKB Mil is also running massive Mi-24 modernization funded by MoD. One of offered versions Mi-24VK-1 with night-vision equipment is already on tests in Moscow. By December another version designated Mi-24VK-2 will join the program. Besides that, OKB Mil is still testing night version of Mi-8 transport helicopters 4 of which are earning combat hours in a fight against religious maniacs in Chechnya.

2000-10-24, Dron: The Head of Indian Air Force decided to check MIG-21 personally, "in order to stop recent gossips about unreliability of this plane once and for all". Anil Yashvant Tipnis conducted a flight this Monday on MiG-21 fighter and immediately after the landing announced that the MIG-21 remains "unbeatable and excellent airplane". The marshal flew his sortie exactly the same day as local media published statistics according to which in the past 5 years, National Air Force lost 84 combat planes, 60 of which were MiG-21s. The result of this are deaths of 34 pilots.  Experts claim however that majority of accidents is classified as "pilot error". The problem is that India has no supersonic trainers, so rookie pilots are given MiG-21s to practice on, which require good skills and expertise.  MiG-21 fighter had been produced at Nasik aviation production plant. Right now, upgrades are underway for production of multifunctional Su-30MKI jets.

2000-10-22, Dron: KIEV, 18 OCTOBER-2000. /ITAR-TASS/. During the ongoing testing program of the AN-70 freighter, fascinating performance characteristics have been acheived. The AN-70 became the only airplane of its kind capable of maintaining stable flight at speeds as low as 98km/h(!!!). According to OKB Antonov media service, for the first time in history of aviation, a 120-ton monster airship conquered speeds acheivable previously only on ultra-light planes. Joint Russian-Ukrainian pilot teams reached astonishing AOA of 30 degrees which is accessible only to highly advanced fighter jets of today. Also, immitated engine-failure never resulted in stalling/spinning etc. The AOA test results indicate that the aircraft remains manually conrolable under most extreme conditions and therefore is completely safe in all flight modes and completely satisfy National standards for new-generation airlift.
