DTN News - AIR SHOW: Melbourne Air & Space Show Rocks Florida's Space Coast

DTN News - AIR SHOW: Melbourne Air & Space Show Rocks Florida's Space Coast 

(NSI News Source Info) TORONTO, Canada - March 24, 2015 (MELBOURNE, Fla):  The skies above the Melbourne International Airport roared with the sounds of jet and propeller-driven aircraft this weekend. The show was held from March 21-22 and included the U.S. Navy Blue Angels, the F-22 Raptor demonstration team, U.S. Air Force F-16 Viper Demonstration Team – and an array of other government and civilian organizations.

From our perspective in the control tower, the show comes across as an exercise in logistics. In particular, we were able to witness first-hand the interaction between the air-traffic control tower, the “show boss” who controls the airspace during the rehearsals, and the show and the Blue Angels administrative officer they send to the tower. The coordination involved – is nothing short of amazing.

DTN News - DEFENSE NEWS: F-35 Jump Jet Gears Up For Crucial At-Sea Tests

(NSI News Source Info) TORONTO, Canada - March 23, 2015: The blue-green team is gearing up for operational tests that could build momentum for the embattled F-35B Lightning II — or add more fuel to the fire of outspoken critics.

The first shipboard operational test period for the Marine Corps' short take off and vertical landing version of the Joint Strike Fighter is scheduled to take place May 18-30 aboard the amphibious assault ship Wasp. Six of the jets will participate, four out of Marine Corps Air Station Yuma, Arizona, and two from MCAS Beaufort, South Carolina.

Evaluators will assess the stealth jet's integration and operation within the full spectrum of flight and maintenance operations, as well as supply chain support while embarked at sea, said Maj. Paul Greenberg, Marine Corps spokesman. Lessons learned will "lay the groundwork" for future deployments, he said. The aims of the at-sea tests include:

DTN News - SINGAPORE NEWS: Lee Kuan Yew, Founding Father and First Premier of Singapore, Dies at 91

(NSI News Source Info) TORONTO, Canada - March 22, 2015 (SINGAPORE): — Lee Kuan Yew, the founding father and first prime minister of Singapore who transformed that tiny island outpost into one of the wealthiest and least corrupt countries in Asia, died on Monday morning. He was 91.

“The prime minister is deeply grieved to announce the passing of Mr. Lee Kuan Yew, the founding prime minister of Singapore,” said a statement posted on the Singapore prime minister’s official website. “Mr. Lee passed away peacefully at the Singapore General Hospital today at 3:18 am.”

DTN News - DEFENSE NEWS: Russian Bombers Intercepted Off Southern UK

DTN News - DEFENSE NEWS: Russian  Bombers Intercepted Off Southern UK

(NSI News Source Info) TORONTO, Canada - February 19, 2015: The UK Royal Air Force (RAF) scrambled two Eurofighter Typhoon fighter aircraft to intercept a pair of Russian bombers that were flying close to British airspace, the Ministry of Defence (MoD) announced on 19 February.

The Tupolev Tu-95 'Bear' strategic bombers were intercepted and shadowed by the Typhoons off the coast of Cornwall, in the southwest of the United Kingdom.

While no further details were available at the time of writing, it is more than likely that the Typhoons were launched from RAF Coningsby in eastern England, which is home to the UK's southern Quick Reaction Alert (QRA) force.

It is not believed that the Russian bombers violated UK airspace.

This incident comes at the same time as large scale Russian Air Force exercises involving more than 50 combat aircraft (mainly fighter types) are taking place near St Petersburg.

DTN News - BOEING DEFENSE NEWS: Boeing System Could Bring Precision to Laser Weapons on US Navy Ships

DTN News - BOEING DEFENSE NEWS: Boeing System Could Bring Precision to Laser Weapons on US Navy Ships

(NSI News Source Info) TORONTO, Canada (ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.,) - February 18, 2015:  – Boeing [NYSE: BA] has been awarded a $29.5 million contract to design and develop a beam control system that could provide exceptional accuracy for laser weapons on U.S. Navy warships. 

Boeing will begin to design a prototype High Power Beam Control Subsystem (HP BCSS) that’s compatible with High Energy Lasers (HEL) based on solid-state laser (SSL) technology. Boeing’s solution will be compatible with systems other companies are designing for the Office of Naval Research’s (ONR) Solid State Laser Technology Maturation (SSL-TM) program.

The resulting beam control system will focus and hold a laser on a moving aimpoint long enough to disable the target. Doing that with a ship-based laser is particularly challenging, given the maritime environment and constant movement of an at-sea vessel.

“Boeing innovations in beam control and directed energy technologies are keys to understanding laser weapon system configurations that could yield a capability for the Navy in their maritime environment,” said Peggy Morse, vice president, Boeing Directed Energy & Strategic Systems (DESS).

The Boeing beam control system capitalizes on the company’s work with the U.S. Army’s High Energy Laser Mobile Demonstrator (HEL MD). In demonstrations at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida in 2014, in which Navy program team members participated, HEL MD acquired, tracked and destroyed targets in windy and foggy conditions. Important technical data was collected on energy systems within a maritime environment, which ONR shared with the Army and Boeing. HEL MD has disabled mortars and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) during recent testing.
