    <P><STRONG>As research into the causes and prevention of aircraft icing continues, the number one defence remains crew awareness of the dangers</STRONG></P> <P>Icing is not a new problem. The industry’s knowledge about aircraft icing, and the ice control systems in use today, has been in place since the 1950s. Flightcrew and airline operations personnel know, theoretically, that airframe and engine icing is dangerous. Yet aircraft accidents caused by icing continue to occur.</P> <P><IMG alt="Twin Otter_Big" src="../assets/getAsset.aspx?ItemID=9860"></P> <P>As operators in the northern hemisphere prepare for another winter season, research continues into the mechanics of icing and efforts are under way to raise icing awareness, but no fundamentally new approach to the problem is on the horizon. David Hammond, head of icing research at the UK’s Cranfield University, says aircraft ice-protection systems have been “very stable” for a long time, and so have the certification requirementshttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Breaking-the-ice-201743/

    <p>PAUL LEWIS / BETHPAGE</p> <p>The Hawkeye has been flying in various forms for more than 40 years - and the latest variant promises much more. Why is it so durable?</p> <p>When it comes to longevity, there are few programmes that can trace their lineage as far as the Northrop Grumman E-2C Hawkeye, successor to the W2F-1 prototype first flown 43 years ago. The airborne early warning (AEW) aircraft has progressively evolved from the E-2A to the E-2B, through a succession of different E-2C variants starting in the 1970s to the latest Hawkeye 2000. Work is due to start next month on the Advanced Hawkeye, representing the most far-reaching development and one that will keep the type in US Navy service beyond 2020.</p> <p>Externally, today's E-2C Hawkeye 2000 and tomorrow's Advanced Hawkeye differ little from the aesthetically ungainly, but robust, twin-turboprop design that has populated USN carrier flightdecks since 1963.

    <p>PAUL LEWIS / NAS PATUXENT RIVER &amp;WASHINGTON DC </p> <p>At the end of this month the US Navy will begin a 10-year programme to replace its 250 Lockheed Martin P-3C Orion maritime patrol aircraft (MPA) and EP-3E Aries II electronic intelligence platforms with a new Multi-Mission Maritime Aircraft (MMA). </p> <p>The USN has budgeted the relatively small sum of $3 billion for development and as a result is counting on industry to come up with innovative airframe and mission system solutions.</p> <p>MMA is modelled closely on the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) competition, with the principal emphases on cost rather than performance at any price. Furthermore, the USN has not formalised its requirements, but instead elected to evolve an operational requirements document (ORD) with industry over the next 18 months as part of a two-phase component advanced development (CAD) effort. The aim is keep requirements and cost growth in check, while working to reduce risk. The Naval Air Systems Chttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Filling-the-gap-151817/
  • Canada issues request for CP-140 Aurora data management system

    News | 06 Aug 2001 23:00

    <p>stewart penney / ottawa </p> <p>Canada's Department of National Defence (DND) has issued a request for proposals (RFP) to supply a data management system (DMS) for its 18 Lockheed Martin CP-140 Aurora maritime patrol aircraft. The deal is expected to be worth over C$100 million ($65 million). </p> <p>The DMS is the heart of the CP-140 mission system, integrating the sensors, operator workstations and displays. The RFP is one of 21 projects that the DND has signed or intends to place to maintain the Aurora in service. </p> <p>Wade Rose, director air force and army programmes, Lockheed Martin Canada, says RFP responses are due in mid-October with a selection set for May next year. </p> <p>He says DMS is part of the "Group III Computer and Sensor Replacement" package that also encompasses the acoustic system, electronic support measures, electro-optic sensor and radar. Only the acoustic system upgrade has been awarded, to Computing Devices Canada (CDC) earlier this year.

  • US study shows Prowler replacement problems

    <p>PAUL LEWIS / WASHINGTON DC </p> <p>DoD study looks towards 'family of solutions' tailored to meet needs of each service </p> <p>Draft results from the US Department of Defense's Joint Airborne Service Electronic Attack analysis of alternatives (AoA) are not expected to identify a single solution to replace the Northrop Grumman EA-6B Prowler, but rather a range of near and longer term electronic warfare options tailored to the needs of each service. </p> <p><img src='../Assets/GetAsset.aspx?ItemID=5834' /></p> <p>The AoA, due to be completed by the end of the year, is having difficulty finding a single platform solution. Instead sources point to a 'family of solutions', which in some cases could defer difficult and costly EW decisions for some years. </p> <p>The US Navy and Marine Corps have 124 EA-6Bs, but the number will start to drop below the required minimum of 108 operational aircraft in 2011/12 unless the Prowlers are again rewinged.
