    News | 18 Feb 2002 00:00

    <p>UK research group Qinetiq has completed the first targeting sensor flights under the BAE Systems Avionics-developed Dragonfly technology demonstrator programme (TDP) in a Hawker Siddeley Andover. Results will be fed into the France/UKJOANNATDP and the ASTRID electro-optical system development programme. Dragonfly uses a wide field of view (FoV) camera to detect targets, which are handed off to a narrow FoV system for inspection and capture. At present the images are stored on board for ground testing of automatic recognition systems. Four flights have been made and results are now being analysed. </p>http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Dragonfly-offers-a-wider-view-143306/

    An air force of mercenaries has turned the tide of battle against insurgent rebels in Angola and West Africa. <p>Al Venter/SIERRA LEONE </p> <p>A GROUP OF South African mercenaries, all veterans of their country's long-lasting war against the Marxist regime in Angola during the 1980s, has established the world's first mercenary air force. Over the past two years, in a reversal of its previous role, the force has been fighting for the Angolan Government against Sierra Leone rebels entering Angola from Liberia and against Dr Jonas Savimbi's National Union for the Total Independence of Africa (UNITA) movement. </p> <p>In both of these conflicts, the mercenary air operation has helped bring an end to hostilities. A peace agreement was signed between Angola and Sierra Leone in early 1996 and, although it was longer in coming, agreement was reached with UNITA following negotiations in Lusaka, Zambia. There have been flare-ups since, but all have involved the mercenary-led Angolan Peoplehttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Gunships-for-hire-12048/

    The RNZAF has been rationalised, and is moving ahead in an increasingly commercial world <p>Nick Lee-Frampton/WELLINGTON </p> <p>WITH LITTLE MORE than 3,700 people on its payroll, operating seven squadrons and more than 50 aircraft, the Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF) takes personnel matters seriously. Indeed, Air Vice-Marshal Carey Adamson says that an RNZAF review called Manpower Required in Uniform Study is the ".... most important thing we're doing at the moment". </p> <p>When appointed Chief of Air Staff (CAS) in September 1995, Adamson acknowledged that recent years had seen the greatest upheaval in the RNZAF since the Second World War with budgets, personnel and bases being cut. </p> <p>Operational funding for the force fell by more than 14% between fiscal year 1991-2 and FY1994-5, and personnel funding fell from NZ$128 million ($89 million) during the same period. Overall, the RNZAF's budget has fallen from NZ$293.5 million in 1991-2 to NZ$259.6 million today, a drophttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Forward-thrust-12315/
