2002-01-09, Serge Pod: Export Su-24MK Flight tests have been completed of the export variant of the Su-24MK tactical bomber. The old aircraft has obtained the qualities which respond to the requirements of the new century. The Su-24 tactical bomber with variable geometric wing was considered one of the best in its class and was delivered by the Soviet Union to dozens of countries. In all 1,300 such aircraft were produced in various modifications. A not too small quantity of them are in the inventory of the air forces of many states of the Middle East. Tests have confirmed the correct choice of the upgrade path for the airplane. The viability of the bomber and its combat capabilities have grown almost by a third while at the same time there has been a decrease in service costs. A satellite navigation system is being installed on the Su-24MK which is compatible with the Russian GLONASS and the American GPS. As The General Director of AVPK Sukhoy, Mikhail Pogosyan, declared to Interfax-AVN, the upgraded airplane can use a…

2002-01-07, Serge Pod: Airman Bails Out Yesterday, 23 December 2001, over the Moscow River flood plain during the test flight of a fighter - by all appearances it was an Su-30MKI, export variant, which the Sukhoy firm is developing for India - there was a bail out by the test pilot. Being left without control, the airplane headed in the direction of Bronnitsy. Eyewitnesses to the event confirm that before the airman abandoned the airplane, there was an explosion, a flash and a great puff of smoke in the vicinity of the cockpit. As they explained to ZhukInform at the Flight Test Institute, the ejection of the airman is not connected with an emergency situation. It was a planned test of the airman`s emergency rescue system. Before the ejection of the seat there is always an explosion of the charge located beneath the ejection seat and a puff of smoke.

2002-01-03, Serge Pod: Synthetic brains for advanced planes 2 January 2002 Engineers at NASA's Dryden Flight Research Centre at Edwards AFB in California are preparing to evaluate a flight control system that uses special neural network software. The project, known as Intelligent Flight Control Systems (IFCS), is designed to identify aircraft stability and control characteristics in order to provide stabilised flight control in the event of system failure. The idea is that future flight control computer software will be able to compensate for combat-damaged or failed aircraft control systems, enabling safe landings for disabled aircraft. One of Dryden's highly modified F-15B testbed aircraft is the IFCS research platform. Risk reduction flights of the F-15B IFCS are slated to begin about February-March 2002. Flight tests of a "self-learning" version of the IFCS software are tentatively planned for 2003, and an upgraded version is targeted for evaluation on a US Air Force C-17 test aircraft in 2005.

2002-01-02, Serge Pod: Saturday December 29, 09:07 PM Russia bids farewell to Cuba spy centre MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia has started its farewells to its former communist ally Cuba as it prepares to close a big spy centre, ending four decades of Russian military presence on the Caribbean island. As Russian and Cuban officials held farewell ceremonies near Havana, Russian military officials were quoted as saying work to dismantle the Lourdes electronic spying centre in Cuba would start on January 15. Interfax news agency quoted the unnamed Russian defence ministry officials as saying three An-124 planes would be used to transport the centre back to Russia. President Vladimir Putin's decision to close the costly eavesdropping centre near Havana, from which Moscow listened in to U.S. secrets through the Cold War, has met resistance from veteran Cuban leader Fidel Castro but has won applause from U.S. President George W. Bush. A final Russian military pullout from Cuba will mark the end of a 40-year chapter in the Cold War in which…

2001-12-03, <Zed>: Russia launches new satellites to modernize military's navigation system December 3, 2001 MOSCOW (AP) - Russia has successfully launched three satellites, which are intended to maintain the shrinking space navigation system of the nation's armed forces. The three satellites, which were put into orbit Sunday by the Proton-K booster, became part of the GLONASS satellite navigation system of the Russian military, the Russian space forces said in a brief statement. The system, developed during the 1970s, originally had 24 satellites but their number dwindled to six before Sunday's launch, the ITAR-Tass news agency reported Monday. A representative of the company that manufactured the Uragan satellites told a conference in the Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk on Monday that the military would bring their number to 10-12 and maintain it at that level through 2003. The official with the Scientific-Industrial Company of Applied Mechanics, whom ITAR-Tass did not identify, said the GLONASS system needs at least 16…

2001-11-28, Serge Pod: BAE SYSTEMS gets out of regional jet business 27 November 2001 Blaming the aftermath of the 11 September terror attacks on the World trade Centre and the Pentagon, BAE SYSTEMS has decided to pull out of the regional jet business altogether. The company is closing its Avro RJX programme immediately and closing the Avro RJ production line when the four aircraft in production are completed. The decision will mean 1700 job losses and BAESYSTEMS will take a Ј250 million charge in 2001. The job losses announced today relate only to BAE SYSTEMS' wholly owned businesses and exclude any impacts of 11 September falling within the Airbus integrated company. Announcing these decisions today John Weston, Chief Executive, BAE SYSTEMS, said, "...operating profit expectations for Airbus next year have been reduced significantly and the outlook for regional aircraft has deteriorated sharply. Regrettably it has been concluded that our regional jet business is no longer viable in this environment." He said the decision drew…

2001-11-26, Serge Pod: Aviastar Relaunches Manufacture of Tu-204 Freighter Construction of a Tu-204 freighter has been restarted at the Ulyanovsk Aviastar aircraft plant. Assembly of the airplane was suspended in May 2001 because of a disagreement over questions of cost between the plant`s management /the New Commonwealth team/ and the customers - the Moscow Aviastar-Tu airline. After the arrival of a new head, Aviastar-Tu paid the basic share of the articles obtained from the suppliers. Right now work on assembly of the liner is on-going in the main part of the the airplane production facility - in the final assembly hall.

2001-11-26, Serge Pod: Ruslan Will Bear Two There are great changes in the marketplace of aerial transportation. And one of the largest cargo airplanes in the world - the An-124-100 Ruslan - has found itself in the focus of the attention. The Ukrainian and Russian users of the aerial trucks finally have understood that it is somewhat better to be friends than to clash. The Volga-Dniepr airline, which is the primary owner of the Ruslans, has agreed with Kiev`s Antonov ANTK and the Progress design bureau on the joint upgrade of the ultra powerful aircraft. Europe's threat to close its air space for airplanes which didn`t comply with international ecological and noise norms pushed the sides into coming together. If at the present time the Ruslans still comply with these requirements, then beginning in 2006, when chapter 4 of the ICAO Convention enters into force, one of the most lucrative markets may by lost completely. As they reported to the Vremya MN newspaper at the Volga-Dniepr company, so that this doesn`t happen, for all…

2001-11-26, Serge Pod: Rosoboronexport to be Transformed into Investment Agency The prime objective for the Russian state arms exporter Rosoboronexport is to turn from a trade mediator into an investment agency for the Russian defense industry and a shareholder in newly established military-industrial concerns, Rosoborobexport General Director Andrei Belyaninov said in an interview with the Monday edition of Vedomosti. When Rosoboronexport was created, it inherited a $60-million debt to enterprises from its predecessor, Rosvooruzheniye, while at the moment this debt has shrunk to only $9 million, Belyaninov said. At the second phase of the Rosoboronexport reform, it should seek to actively increase its stakes in Russian defense industry enterprises, Belyaninov said. ``A state mediator without its own production base is at risk of being exposed to various fluctuations. It might simply fail to survive,`` he said. Among enterprises Rosoboronexport is eyeing at the moment is the Sukhoi aircraft holding company, which controls about…
