UAE: Northrop Grumman to Showcase Its Defence Products at IDEX

first_imgNorthrop Grumman Corporation will highlight a wide range of defence and security solutions, including cyber-protected C4I solutions, airborne early warning and control systems, aerial surveillance, fire control radars and marine navigation systems at the International Defence Exhibition and Conference (IDEX) in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.IDEX 2013 is the only tri-service defence and security exhibition in the Middle East and North Africa region and will be held at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre Feb. 17-21. Northrop Grumman’s exhibit in the U.S. pavilion will be at Stand 03-C08 and CS-1.“Northrop Grumman’s strong relationship with the Gulf Cooperation Council countries goes back many decades and is built on a legacy of trust and performance,” said David Perry, corporate vice president and chief global business development officer, Northrop Grumman. “Our objective is to continue to work closely with our customers to provide long-term capability solutions and help enhance defence and national security across the region.”Northrop Grumman will showcase the world-leading airborne early warning capabilities of its E-2D Advanced Hawkeye with a crew workstation and flyable cockpit simulator in the exhibit stand to demonstrate the E-2D’s benefits for military and civil applications.The E-2D Advanced Hawkeye couples a newly designed electronically scanned radar with a matching suite of sensors, avionics, processors, software and displays to provide the most technologically advanced command and control capability available worldwide. The AN/APY-9 radar is the backbone of this aircraft and provides greater flexibility and significantly improved detection and tracking over all terrains. Northrop Grumman has delivered nine E-2D Advanced Hawkeye aircraft to the U.S. Navy and initial operational capability with the U.S. Navy fleet is on track for 2015. The programme was recently approved to enter full-rate production by the Office of the Secretary of Defense after the E-2D was declared operationally suitable and effective following a 10-month initial operational test and evaluation by the Navy.The exhibit will also feature a range of Northrop Grumman’s industry-leading radar-related technology. The AN/APR-39 radar warning receiver protects a wide variety of fixed-, rotary- and tilt-wing aircraft from threats, and is designed to maximize survivability by improving aircrew situational awareness. The system provides continuous 360-degree coverage to detect and identify threat types, bearing and lethality before alerting a cockpit crew to each threat with a graphical symbol on the cockpit multifunction display or video display.The company is the world’s sole provider of fire control radars for fifth-generation fighters and supplies the active electronically scanned array fire control radars for the F-22 and F-35 and the fire control radar for the F-16 Block 60. The exhibit will feature the APG-80 Scalable Agile Beam Radar for the F-16 and the APG-81 for the F-35.A model of the AN/TPS-78 latest generation radar, made possible by technological advances in high power transistor design, will be featured in the exhibit.The company’s airborne surveillance capability will also be highlighted with a model of the lighter-than-air Long Endurance Multi-Intelligence Vehicle (LEMV) being developed for the U.S. Army. The system is designed to be operated with or without a crew on board, and offers persistent surveillance with reconfigurable payloads to meet multimission needs. The first flight of the LEMV was successfully completed in August 2012.A range of C2/C3/C4I solutions will be highlighted including the International Track Server, International Command and Control Enterprise and the SoldierLink System, a lightweight communications and information system for dismounted soldiers. A Real Time Information in the Cockpit system will be available for viewing.The company’s naval and maritime capabilities will be highlighted in NAVDEX, the dedicated naval defence area at IDEX. This will include Northrop Grumman Sperry Marine’s latest generation of navigation, ship control and radar technology.The VisionMaster FT and warship electronic chart display and information system will be on display configured to demonstrate how the system is able to provide effective operational support for watch keeping and command teams on smaller vessels. VisionMaster FT provides a highly integrated fully networked suite of marine radar and electronic charting systems designed to form the backbone of the modern ship’s integrated bridge.Also on display is Northrop Grumman’s new MK39 Mod 4 ring laser gyro inertial navigation system for naval vessels, the AQS-24A mine hunting sonar system and the company’s unmanned surface vehicle technology. Airborne mine countermeasures programmes will be highlighted with a display of the AN/AES-1 airborne laser mine detection system designed to detect, classify and localize floating and near-surface moored sea mines.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, February 14, 2013; Image: NGC View post tag: UAE Equipment & technology View post tag: Grumman View post tag: IDEX View post tag: Navy View post tag: Showcase View post tag: Defence View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Products View post tag: Naval View post tag: Northrop UAE: Northrop Grumman to Showcase Its Defence Products at IDEX Back to overview,Home naval-today UAE: Northrop Grumman to Showcase Its Defence Products at IDEX February 14, 2013 View post tag: to Share this articlelast_img read more

Resorts giving from Vermonters for Vermonters

first_imgThe word ‘giving’ means a lot in Vermont; it’s a way of life. Individual citizens, communities, businesses and families work to help one another in creative, often inspiring ways. The rally of Vermonters for Vermonters during post Irene efforts was a clear example of our people’s natural sense to lend a hand. This willingness to help is not new; at Vermont ski resorts, the pursuit of prosperity for others has been exhibited for decades through on-mountain fundraisers, charitable giving and volunteer events. Vermont resorts give nearly 11,000 complimentary tickets/passes and several thousand deeply discounted tickets to school children annually. There are also incentives for kids to hit the books as well as the slopes, as many resorts offer season passes to academic achievers.Resorts recognize and appreciate Vermont’s volunteers and local rescue organizations with complimentary lift tickets and passes; Vermont resorts donate 9,000 lift tickets/passes annually. Military and their families are also eligible for special programs, some complimentary and others discounted at many Vermont resorts.The Ski Vermont Fifth Grade Passport enables all fifth grade children to ski and ride and proceeds from the $10 processing fee go to Keep Local Farms. Last season, $8,500 was contributed and more than 2,400 kids utilized their passport to visit Vermont’s mountains.

Walcott won’t rush his return

first_img Speaking to the official Arsenal matchday magazine for Monday night’s Barclays Premier League clash against Newcastle, Walcott said: “I am not pushing myself to be fit for the World Cup or anything like that. I want to be back quickly, of course, but safely, too. “I want to try and be back for the early part of next season, that is the goal, so there will be a lot of hard work throughout the summer and during the World Cup.” He added: “It has nearly been four months now and my recovery has gone on track so far. “At the moment, I’m working on muscle strength and building muscle in my quad. “I don’t see any point in being down in the dumps about the injury because it has already happened and there are a lot of people with worse problems in the world. “I will just get on with my work – I am first in and last out on most days. “I see the consultant soon, too, and hopefully he will give me the thumbs up to push on. I would love to be running in a few weeks.” The England international saw his World Cup dreams ended after rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during the closing stages of Arsenal’s FA Cup third-round victory over Tottenham, when he was pelted with coins while being carried off around the pitch in front of the away supporters. The 25-year-old – a controversial omission from Fabio Capello’s final World Cup squad in South Africa four years ago – says he will only consider playing again when he feels completely ready. Arsenal forward Theo Walcott will not rush his return from a serious knee injury and could miss the start of next season. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Men’s golf readies for conference tournament

first_imgThe No. 21 USC men’s golf team swings into the postseason this weekend as the Pac-10 championship kicks off at the Stanford Golf Course.All the teams in the Pac-10 will be in attendance this Friday through Sunday.“There will be a lot of good teams at the tournament this weekend, and the competition should be great,” said sophomore Martin Trainer. “Despite that, we are really just worried with our own success.”The team is coming off three consecutive top-three finishes, first place at the Thunderbird Invitational with a 15-under-par 837 (287, 271, 279), second place at the Western Intercollegiate and third place at Callaway Collegiate Match Play. The team finished its regular season strong and hopes to ride that momentum into the postseason.Starting Friday at 8 a.m., the team will play 36 holes on the par 70 course and 18 holes both Saturday and Sunday. USC holds the record for most Pac-10 tournament wins with 18, as well as 20 individual champions.The Trojans will be led by sophomore T.J. Vogel and junior Steve Lim, with Trainer, freshman Ramsey Sahyoun, freshman Jeffrey Kang and sophomore Sam Smith rounding out the squad. All six golfers have had very strong seasons, and USC’s team is one of the best in the field.“We have the deepest team, and that’s one of our strong points. Our sixth man is easily the best out there,” Trainer said. “We have so much talent, I feel like we can do great. We just have to prepare well and when the time comes, play our best.”Following their recent success and the strength of the squad, the Trojans hope to continue their trend of winning and make a strong showing at the tournament.“I think we have a really good chance to win. We have been playing really well lately,” Trainer said. “So have UCLA and even Stanford, but not as strong as we have.”last_img read more
