Safran Group is one of the leading international high technology group. It has 3 main groups within it, the first is airspace propulsion which groups many of the operations that concern helicopters, missiles, and aeroplanes. The second is aircraft equipment and this branch groups all the design production and sealed of the equipment’s that were used by civil and military helicopters. The third is the defense and security, this branch operated in the civil, military and space markets. It includes many areas such as internal guidance and navigation equipment.

Safran is a very well-known company and they have great reputation. Recently they announced that their Helicopter Engines have signed a 10 year contract with NAHEMA which stands for NATO Helicopter management agency. This contract is going to cover many aspects. It is coing to cover NH90 operated by Belgian army, and Navy and even the royal Netherlands Armed forces. This is a really good contract especially because it is going to cover at least 130 rotorcrafts in the coming years. This is good for them as it will bring in a lot of revenue and will make them even more credible as a company.

Another great deal for them is that this new contract and agreement is going to satisfy the NAHEMA and nations special requirements. This is especially needed during rescue and military operations for either at home or on deployment. The general manager Fortunato di Marizo mentioned-

"This GSP will allow the French, the Belgian and the Dutch NH90 operators to benefit from a very effective engine-support for their RTM322 engines, especially during their operational tasks. The contract is the result of a very good and fruitful partnership between NAHEMA and Safran Helicopter Engines”.
This was just to confirm the special benefits for them. Also Safran Helicopter Engines executive president said that
"This contract marks a major new milestone in our partnership with NAHEMA and French, Belgium and Dutch armed forces. We will deliver world-class services to guarantee their engine availability; thus demonstrating that the GSP model is particularly well-suited to supporting the engine fleets of modern air forces".
They are also very excited for this new contract.

The United States air force is one of the strongest compared to other countries. They have the best quality parts and have all the support they need to get from the government. They have one of the largest military transport aircraft which was manufactured and developed by McDonnell Douglas by Boeing. Boeing C-17 has been developing. It went through many 3 phases.

The most recent phase is the third phase. This specific Boeing C-17 performs a lot of tactical and strategic airlift missions.  This military transport has a four engine, it can carry large equipment, supplies and troops directly to destination anywhere in the world under hard weather conditions. It has been known to deliver worldwide since 1990. This final phase of the C-17 is going through final testing. Because it is such a large phase and it is one of the biggest that offers many services, it uses a lot of fuel therefore there has been many tests to see If the amount of fuel used can be lowered.

“A 1 percent improvement in drag reduction will result in 7.1 million gallons of fuel reduction per year,” said Bogdan Wozniak, the 418th FLTS, project engineer. “One to 2 percent drag reduction could translate to $24-48 million dollars in fuel savings per year.” There has been a lot of work for the past year to in the air research laboratory to try to reduce the amount of fuel that is used. The testing is currently happening using 3-D printed parts by Lockheed Martin. Which uses a combination of laser positioning, this is mainly done to be able to locate and seal bond the parts to aircrafts. And this helps to develop easier and faster way of testing which helps with the process to be more efficient.

Essve has just introduced the Programa Plus, a next generation frame screw that guarantees craftsmen and window installers easy, speedy installing with windows and door frames without the risk of splitting or splintering in joist or frame.

The frame screw was first introduced in the 1970’s by Essve and since then the company has held the industry edge within that particular segment and now Essve is hoping that the Programa Plus will help launch another 40 years of market share domination with the proprietary frame screw that promise even faster and simpler mounting of frames.

Mounting frames has always carried the risk that the frame or joist splits. Over-tightening the casing is always a big risk as well and applying too much force. With the Programa Plus mounting the frame becomes much easier and effective with less risk for splitting the wood. Developed at Essve’s R&D facilities in Kista, Stockholm, the Programa Plus has a fiber cut insert on the casing that makes the entry hole very clean and neat without splintering. More robust than traditional frame screws, the Programa Plus has a new design with a round casing that has grooves all around it. This minute detail effectively halves the risk of splitting the frame or over-tightening when inserting the casing which happens when the mounting gets crooked.

The Programa Plus guarantees that it will offer 61% more torque before over-tightening, 40% better exit force, and 42% stronger casing. Optimal for both refurbishment and new construct, the Programa Plus enables fast mounting with the added capability to re-adjust post-fitting. Available in 3 different lengths it works equally well with wall materials of all kind like stone, concrete, wood, Leca and lightweight concreate.

Norway is one of the countries that always tries to be secure and make sure that their people are safe. Their goal is to always meet any future obstacles and any future security challenges. Due to this they are planning to order five Boeing Co P-8A Poseidon maritime patrol plans. The Nato Country’s defense ministry said they are doing this to mainly reach and to be able to meet any future security challenges. They are aware that anything can happen and they like to stay safe.

Norway’s main concerns is Russia, they are always focusing on them since they are a neighboring border. Russia has become a focus of the military. Especially after the annexation of Ukrain’s Crimea region. On the other hand, Sweden and Finland that are not in the NATO alliance also are expressing concerns about incursions by Russian submarines and other naval vessels. In fact, the Defense Minister Ink Erikson Soereide said.

“The new security situation increases our demand for situational awareness in our own vicinity. The ability to handle current and future challenges must therefore be strengthened,” also “The introduction of the Poseidon aircraft is crucial for Norway to maintain a leading position and expertise on strategic conditions in northern areas. This is mainly important because it is going to be an exceptional time for them to take care of their people and county.  They say that this will cost them at least0 10 billion Kroner which is equivalent to 1,1 billion. The deliveries are expected for 2021 and 2022. This is a long time from now but it is a plan that was introduced in 2013. This air patrol and support is in cooperation with Coast Guard to assist in search and rescue operation. They also plan to play a vital role in environmental monitoring. The Bioregion press released to continue an MPA (maritime patrol aircraft) and ISR (intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance) capability that can meet current and future challenges, the Government has submitted a proposal for acquiring five P-8A Poseidon for the Armed Forces. Beside the actual aircraft, the contract also includes modern sensors, surveillance systems, new anti-submarine weapons and support systems.”

As part of HARTING strategy they are planning to run the new US4 switch as part of their Industry portfolio. Like any other technological advances the new switch is going to save more space and create more room for wiring and distribute network better and above all create a better experience for the Industry 4.0 modernisation programmes. Especially that HARTING technology is a leader in the Industry 4.0 and allows their technology to be adaptable to modern industrial processes and automations. The product market specialist, Howard Forryan mentioned how one of the most important principles that Industry 4.0 follow is the Smart Factory principle and it allows the industry to focus on the most important aspects such as interoperability and flexibility, cell modularisation, miniaturisation and increased decentralisation. Above all is the value of physical space and how much those new and clever connector aids in creating more space by allowing several components and connections to all meet at one point and connect.

HARTING has added a very useful and functioning 4-port Ethernet active switch, this allows network devices to be closer to the field than before and allow the addition of Ethernet modules without the need to restore any. In conclusion, manufacturing facilities and OEMs became much easier in terms of networking, typical cabinet control system, distributing cables for interlinked production cells. The new Han-Modular Switch US4 makes it easier for these conditions to work, it also allows transmission speeds of 1000 Mbit/s. They even have integrated LEDs that will indicate when connection has been established or if data is being transferred. HARTINS has done it again in bringing an innovative product to keep the enhance Industry 4.0.
