predator airborne missile test

On August 16, 2016 San Diego experienced a major event. General Atomics Aeronautical Systems Inc. accomplished a tracking missile test under a contract that supported missile defense from a legit agency. There were two unmanned aircrafts that had Raytheon multi-spectral targeting systems that sighted a ballistic missile target and acted on the US Navy vessels. The reason this test was very important was due to the practice needed on adequacy to defeat missile defense.

The predator aircraft used in this missile defense practice is precise at lasting a long time in flight and able to submerge into medium high elevation. A great asset that is accompanied by this aircraft is the ability that it has to targeting the threats. This aircraft has an eagle eye for monitoring the opposing side and missions. Honeywell is to thank for the amazing turboprop engine secured inside the aircraft. 45,000 feet is the all-time high elevation that the Honeywell engine allows the predator to reach. 4 parts of the government are familiar with this turbo jet aircraft: the U.S. Airforce, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, NASA, as well as some NATO countries.

The Pacific Dragon was a test ran on the coast located in Kauai, Hawaii. The Pacific Dragon is an occurrence of practice participated between the U.S. Navy, Japan Maritime, and republic of Korea Navy. This event is utilized to practice and perfect missile defense and better the eye for targets.

rafale fighter jet

India and France have finally signed the long-awaited contract for 36 Rafale fighter aircrafts for the Indian Air Force. The deal which is valued at $7.8 billion dollars which is actually down from the initial $12 billion valuation reported by the Indian Express. As part of an intergovernmental agreement (IGA), the Dassault Aviation-built multi-role jet fighter deal was signed off by France and India earlier in the fiscal year.

The IAF was initially for 126 Rafale aircraft with 108 to be locally built following a technology transfer to Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) and the first 18 to be manufacturered in France from the second quarter of 2015 on. That plan fell apart as Dassault refused to guarantee that the fighters would be built in India. Eric Trappier, Dassault Aviation chairman and CEO, commended the Indian Authorities praising their commitment to excellence and keeping the people of India safe.

The Rafale twin-jet fighter aircraft can operate from a shore base or an aircraft carrier to carry out all combat aviation missions. It can also be used for a variety of tasks which include but are not exclusive to interception, reconnaissance, ground support, air defence, nuclear deterrence and anti-ship strikes. The Rafale fighter aircraft initially entered service in 2004 with the French Navy and 2006 with the French Air Force.

Here at ASAP NSN Parts, we are focusing on supplying surplus NSN parts of Dassault Aviation. For any requirement contact our sales executive at sales@asap-nsnparts.us or call us at 1-714-705-4780.

Six of the Avanti Evos are continued to be manufactured in their facility located at Piaggios headquarters in Villanova D’Albenga near Genoa, Italy.

Piaggio works hand in hand with their top investors, Mubadala an investment house in Abu Dhabi to help dual investments sky rocket. Mubdala presents the P.1HH Hammerhead development a priority in their long term goals.  The P.1HH being their first of its kind for its company the dual companies agree on shifting directions into UAVs rather than manned aircrafts.

As the Italian Company lands a deal with the United Arab Emritates for 8 P.1HHs, they continue to show interest in Piaggios companies direction and what they have to offer. As the Piaggio shifts gears they have begun to promote and attracts a whole new crowd of customers. “The company says it is “actively seeking buyers of non-core areas” such as its engine and civil maintenance, repair and overhaul business lines which will be sold as “going concerns.”

Lockheed Martin F-35B

The Lockheed Martin F-35B has recently been acquired by the United Kingdom. The F-35 Lightning II is a family of single-engine, single-seat, all weather stealth multirole fighters. It is currently undergoing final testing and development by the United States. The F-35B variant is the short takeoff and vertical landing (STOVL) version of the aircraft. Due to threats such as foreign object damage, the vertical takeoffs and landings are riskier. As of 2014, the F-35B variant is limited to 400 knots and 4.5 g. The maiden test flights of the F-35B was held in June of 2008.

“At the Royal International Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford on 8 July, Air Cdre Linc Taylor, assistant chief of staff for capability delivery, combat air, told reporters that the next Strategic Defense and Security Review (SDSR) could see the UK opt to acquire a mixed fleet of F-35 variants, rather than just the 138 F-35Bs it is currently contracted for,”

reported Beth Stevenson from Flight Global.

“The UK’s last SDSR, released in ¬November 2015, announced that the RAF would acquire the Boeing P-8 ¬Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft to replace the British Aerospace Nimrod MR2 after its retirement in 2010,”

Stevenson added.

The airshow has been a great opportunity for the government to reveal any large deals with its United States ally. The remanufacture of the Boeing Company/Westland AH1 Apaches for the Army Air Corps is another significant contract to be signed. The Boeing/Westland AH1 Apaches will be reconfigured into the AH-64E version, which is the same variant that is operated by the United States Army. This deal is anticipated to be worth around $3 billion.

 “Aside from this high-profile display of UK military air power, Cameron’s last air show appearance as prime minister is also expected to see him sign two key contracts for the acquisition of new aircraft, which would represent a significant boost for US manufacturer Boeing’s orderbook,”

said Stevenson.

Boeing Plane and Helicopter

As part of a $6 billion deal with Boeing, the British Defense Ministry will purchase nine surveillance planes and fifty attack helicopters from the American manufacturing corporation.

To improve the U.K.’s defense strategy, Britain had committed to purchasing nine P-SA jets intended for sea patrols and hunting submarines that actively search to find enemy submarines.

This is a result of the continuation of suspicious activity from foreign vessels. In recent years, the Britain Defense Ministry has been forced to ask its allies to provide sea-monitoring planes to prevent any attacks on the U.K.’s hunt submarines and help provide safety for its coast.

Despite a decrease in demand for Boeing’s combat jets, the company has become confident in its ability to provide the military with modified jetliners to keep sales figures from dwindling further. So far, the U.K. has joined India and Australia in purchasing modified P-SA jets, which are designed from Boeing’s 737 passenger jet- one of the company’s bestselling aircrafts.

The recent disintegration of the European Union has left many with uncertainty over European investments. In spite of this event, the current Prime Minister, David Cameron, assures that the U.K. is a place worth investing in. In an effort to accomplish this, the U.K. will work with Boeing in establishing programs to build an operational support and training base for the P-SA jets at RAF Lossiemouth. This will help ensure that U.K. does not lose its place in leading the world in civil and defense aerospace.

The total cost for the surveillance planes will cost an estimated $3.9 billion over the course of the next ten years, and the government to government sale has already been approved by the U.S. State Department.

The second part of the deal with Boeing involves 50 AH-64E Apache attack helicopters valued at $2.3 billion. According to Nick Carter, the Chief of the General Staff, these will provide the capable offense the British Army needs.

In an effort to bring down the controversy surrounding these non-U.K. purchases, Michael Fallon stated the intent of having these aircrafts maintained in the U.K. with U.K. companies that will include Leonardo-Finnmeccanica SpA. This will provide the British industry with long-term work to support its economy.

ASAP NSN provides customers with even the hardest to find National Stock Number parts. Each part is highly tested and under warranty to ensure customers are satisfied with their purchase. From the beginning of the purchasing cycle, ASAP NSN goes beyond expectations to find the exact part, inspect, quote, and ship the part.

HH-60G Pave Hawk Operational Loss Replacement Helicopter

The United States Air Force has recently introduced its most recent first fully built HH-60G Pave Hawk Operational Loss Replacement, or OLR, helicopter. This helicopter will be the first of 21 HH-60G aircrafts that the United States Air Force has added to their fleet in order to replace the aircrafts lost in roughly 15 years of deployed combat operations since 9/11.

The United States Air Force has converted 21 UH-60Ls by creating certain modifications in order to create 21 HH-60Gs with additionally installed equipment. These Operational Loss Replacement helicopters are equipped with a digital symbol generator, color weather radar, new radar warning receivers, improved tactical air navigation, a digital intercommunication system, as well as an automatic direction finder.

"The criteria we set for the helicopters we received was comprehensive and thorough,”

said Eric Fick, the United States Air Force global reach program director brigadier general.

"The result is the HH-60G OLR, a completely re-missionized helicopter that is fully capable of successfully executing the combat rescue mission."

The United States Air Force and the United Stated Army Aviation and Missile Command contracted Science and Engineering Services in order to modify the initial UH-60L aircrafts. After 2020, the United States Air Force will utilize the Operational Loss Replacement helicopters in order to conduct combat search and rescue (SAR) missions as well as to conduct personnel recovery until it starts operating as a modernized combat rescue helicopter.

After initial testing, the Air National Guard rescue units in Alaska, California, and New York will be receiving Operational Loss Replacement helicopters in the fiscal year of 2018. The Air National Guard units which will be receiving the Operational Loss Replacement aircrafts are the 210th Rescue Squadron at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska; the 129th RQS at Moffett Federal Airfield, California; as well as the 101st RQS at Gabreski Field, New York.

GE, Pratt & Whitney Next generation engine

US Air Force gives the green light on further development of the next generation engine. Such an enormous task given to such prestige’s companies such as General Electric, Pratt and Whitney. The Goal of the latest engine is proposed to be placed on a sixth-generation fighter and potentially an upgraded F-35 Lightning II. Both contracts were issued by the Department of Defense on June 30th.   919.5 million dollars were issued to general electric alongside 873 million to Pratt & Whitney. The contract should cover the cost of building and testing of a 45000 lb thrust turbo fan adaptive engine with an approximate exceeding overall cost of 1 billion dollars each.

“The AETP program evolved from the Air Force Research Laboratory’s (AFRL) Adaptive Versatile Engine Technology effort begun in 2007 and involving engine manufacturers GE Aviation and Rolls-Royce North America, to the follow-on Adaptive Engine Technology Development (AETD) program awarded to GE Aviation and Pratt & Whitney in 2012.”

The reason for the latest need of engine innovation is to increase its attributes into only one engine.  With General electric they offer a 3 stream adaptive cycle AETP engine which is packed with a transition from a high-bypass,

“fuel efficient engine similar to engines used on tankers and transports to a low-bypass, high-performance engine required for fighters”.

To date the Military jets are limited to ether maximum power or fuel efficiency in each fighter jets.

Pratt and Whitney are experienced in the industry since 1925. Beginning with suppling the Government with previous F119-PW-100 turbofan engines on the F-22 Raptor, the F135 engine of the Lightning II.

“We've gained tremendous insight from our experience designing engines for the F-22 and the F-35, which are truly a generation ahead,”

said Jimmy Kenyon, Pratt & Whitney senior director of advanced programs and technology.

ASAP Semi-Conductor offers aircraft engine parts supplier, Ge aviation parts supplier, Pratt & Whitney Engine parts supplier in our wide variety of inventory.

Boeing Using Google Glass

On July 14th, 2016 Nick Statt wrote an article on Boeing and how it is planning to make use of Google’s Glass in order to build airplanes. For those who don’t know what Google Glass is, it is a company that uses augmented reality in order to build airplanes.

The Google Glass seems to not work too well in the consumer market. However, according the CIO.com report, Boeing is using research and technology in order to build and make wire harnesses. Here is how Statt writes about how wire hardness were mad manually.

“Because planes contain hugely messy and complex webs of wires to connect electrical systems, technicians have to manually build them out, a painstaking process based on PDF assembly guide viewed on a laptop screen.”

In order to fix and replace the computer screen, Boeing mentioned that using the Google glass will be able to reduce production time by 25 percent. Not only will the production time be reduced tremendously, the error rate will be cut in half.

This isn’t the first time that Boeing has used augmented reality glasses for business. The company used AR glasses in 1995. During this time, Boeing was testing the AR with head mounted displays and new software. However because the AR glasses weren’t advanced enough, the company decided to put this idea on the shelf. The AR glasses were a little bigger, bad connectivity, and had a hefty price tag.

Now that the Google Glass has is more affordable and practical, Boeing is trying this option out one more time.

Boeing has reached out to APX Labs which is the maker of the smart glasses platform in order to create an app that will help support the Google Glass.
