Gilat has just announced that they will be unveiling a new Electronically Steerable Antenna through a joint development project with Airbus as part of the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 program. This fully embedded airborne antenna technology by Gilat will be on full display during an inflight demonstration on a C295 aircraft in support of the Clean Sky 2 (CS2) objective which was intended to push for a more efficient and eco-friendly transport. Due to their phased array antenna (PAA) expertise, Gilat was selected to develop a Ka band ESA inflight connectivity (IFC) terminal with the embedded antenna ray in the wing structure of the airframe which includes the radiating elements and amplification.

Airbus who is partnering with Gilat for the development of the airborne terminal which includes designing, prototyping, manufacturing, and testing both on the ground and in-flight level. Gilat believes the phased array technology will allow for high integration and embedding of the antenna into airframe structures and has scheduled for in-flight validation tests plans to be carried out in Seville, Spain. Gilat is replacing the original panels with new composite structures which will add IFC capabilities without interfering with the aircraft performance and maneuverability by reducing fuel consumption and avoiding aerodynamic drag. This will also eliminate any protruding components and will contribute to the reduction of COC2 emissions which was one of the primary objective of the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 program.

The US Navy has shown a revived interest in upgrading the Super Hornet engine that is used to power Boeing F/A-18E/F, EA-18G along with two other foreign fighters. Earlier last month the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) reached out to GE Aviation asking for a proposal contract for the company’s engineers in order to perform studies on an “F414-GE-400 core enhancement evaluation”.

GE revealed in a statement to FlightGlobal that NAVAIR expressed interest in GE evaluating the latest engine technologies that could be applied to the F414 Enhanced Engine. This is a revival of the efforts put forth by GE and NAVAIR years ago as part of a proposal by Boeing’s Super Hornet bid for India’s fighter competition in which NAVAIR Ltd. paid GE to test the durability and thrust upgrades in laboratory rigs.

GE also evaluated the F414 Enhanced Engine under the expectation that funding for a development program would manifest in the next two years however the follow-on contract never did materialized. With “core enhancement” a central theme in the newest NAVAIR study, evidence suggests that the three modules in the core of the engine are the main focus of the Navy which includes the combustor, high-pressure turbine and high-pressure compressor. NAVAIR’s renewed interest in upgrading the Super Hornet comes on the heels of a remarkable turn-around for the Boeing production line and the program appears to be winding down after completing delivers to the USN.

Newest flight technology has recently gone under stringent inspection to be approved by the EASA to be used in aircrafts all of the European region. Garmin International, Inc recently approved new international G5 electronic instrument that has been said to be used for future “fixed-wing general aviation” in European aircrafts . The EASA approval does not solitary come with just its own certification, but also includes another certification such as the supplemental type certification (STC).

In company of the certifications, the G5 electronic flight instrument has been placed on the comprehensive approved model list (AML) that also features a variety of different aircrafts. The AML is a list created by the FAA to advise material information to potential FAA customers, and other buyers. Professionals have said that the G5 can be used in lue of the “aircrafts primary attitude indicator or turn coordinator via a Garmin-held STC for the selected certified fixed-wing aircraft models.” A great distinction the G5 has to offer is its latest liquid crystal display(LCD) which is a change from the usual typical gyro-driven instruments. The G5 is sized to feature an 88mm LCD screen in every aircraft that will be equipped with it.

Per Vice President of Garmin International, Phil Straub

"We are grateful for EASA’s recent efforts and their dedication to implement simpler, scalable regulations that are economical and allow aircraft owners to more easily install modern flight instrumentation, which ultimately improves safety among many aircraft under 2,700kg throughout Europe."

Garmin is very pleased that they did obtain such rapid approval for their latest part to begin shipping and installing of the G5s. For the aircrafts that will be using an existing pitot/static system there will be an 76mm deep integration option available that will display “attitude, airspeed, altitude, vertical speed, slip/skid, turn rate, and configurable v-speed references.”

On January 22 2017, there was an article written by Kate Sarsfield for Flight International talking about how Bliss Jett, a startup business jet operator, is planning to launch second quarter of 2017 instead of in January (as its original plan) in order to fix loose ends.

It was January 8th specifically when Bliss Jets was supposed to begin its service. Here is what David Rimmer, the Bliss Jet founder and chief executive said about the deadline he set.

“We set ourselves an overly ambitious deadline, which wasn’t necessary. Nearly everything is in place, including the aircraft and the service delivery. However, following market feedback we have decided to introduce some changes to the service, so we get it absolutely right before we begin.”

Bliss Jet is considered a first class and business class airline who are looking for an alternative upmarket for transatlantic flights. Bills Jets is also targeting customers who are looking for lower cost alternatives who are interested in business aircrafts as opposed to paying for whole aircraft charters.

In the upcoming few years, Bliss Jets plans to operate its own fleet.

Arriving as usual in Japan on January 18th, as per the usual for the US Marine Corps F-35B fighters who make their inaugural trip to Air Station, Iwakuni. The Marine Fighter Attack Squadron 121 operated the Lockheed Martin stealth fighter on its first operational overseas deployment.

The squadron was stationed in MCAS Yuma, Arizona with the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing before arriving in Japan. After initially declaring operational capability back in July of 2015, the USMC then converted the Boeing F/A-18D squadron to F-35Bs with a total of 16 F-35Bs expected to arrive year in Iwakuni according to a Marine spokesman who spoke with FlightGlobal.

Designed to replace the Marine Corps’ AV-8B Harrier, F/A-18 Hornet and EA-6B Prowler, this short take-off vertical landing variant means change is coming. With this deployment the F-35B has officially become the first US stealth aircraft to be based west of Hawaii and Alaska in the Pacific theater permanently. Lockheed F-22s and Northrop Grumman B-2s however are still only on a temporary basis deployment by the US Air Force. The USMC unit will not be alone for long as new F-35As will also be deployed to foreign air forces in Australia, Japan, and South Korean in the next few years.

Boeing 777 is very popular in the industry. It one of the popular long range wide body twin engine jet airliners. It is the largest twinjet in the world and it can seat up to 396 passengers. It has a big mileage and up to 8,555 nautical miles. It is made to replace other older versions like the 767 and 747. What is special about it is that it is the first commercial aircraft to be designed entirely with computer aided designs. Recently there has been an announcement that the production of 777 is going to be reduced starting August 2017. Even though Boeing 777- is one of the greatest. It has been mentioned that the production of it will be reduced twice in 2017.

The cuts are going to be done and instead of producing 7 per month 5 will be produced. This is shocking and reasons for this cut is unknown. Elizabeth Lund a Boeing vice president and general manager of the 777-program mentioned that "While the exact number of affected positions has not been determined, we will do our best to lessen the impact," they are aware that this cut is going to cause many problems for employees and many will lose their jobs but Lund added that they cannot control it. She mentioned despite tireless work by the sales team, orders have slowed. This is due in part to several ongoing twin-aisle campaigns that haven’t concluded in time to keep the rate steady. Therefore, we must adjust accordingly to ensure we are running a healthy business and the production line remains stable." These are things that they have no control over. Also, she expects sale to drop even lower especially after Trump becomes actually takes office and starts cancelling orders due to his bad international relationships especially with Iran. This will cause even more budget cuts.

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.”

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.
