US, UK Test New Aircraft Landing Concepts for Aircraft Carriers

first_img View post tag: News by topic Bae Systems has been actively involved in the design of the Shipborne Rolling Vertical Landing (SRVL) manoeuvre being developed for the UK MOD when the F35B Lightning II Short Take-off and Vertical Landing (STOVL) aircraft and the new Queen Elizabeth Class (QEC) Aircraft Carriers come into operational service.The SRVL manoeuvre provides enhanced ‘bring back’ meaning the aircraft is capable of bringing back more payload i.e. weapons and fuel over vertical landings owing to the wing lift created by forward airspeed at touchdown. Joint research efforts on both sides of the Atlantic have developed enhanced aircraft flight controls and displays which are applicable to both the F35C Carrier Variant arrested recovery and the F35B STOVL variant SRVL recovery to the aircraft carrier, albeit separated by some 70 knots approach airspeed.The recent flight simulation trials at Warton tested these enhanced control law modes for F35C arrested recoveries to a Nimitz class carrier and gained positive feedback from the US Navy and F35 test pilots involved in the trial. James Denham (Aeromechanics division at the US Naval Air Systems Command) said: “During this trial we’ve identified improvements to deliver more accurate touchdowns, less bolters and reduced pilot training. Ultimately, what we’ve been able to test in this simulated environment allows us to inform future Concepts of Operation. The co-ordination and co-operation between us all has been extraordinary.”The facility at Warton is currently engaged in supporting UK carrier integration and risk reduction studies, realistically simulating the landing and take-off characteristics of a F35B STOVL variant to and from the Queen Elizabeth class carrier allowing engineers and pilots to help define and refine the design, layout and operations for both platforms. The work being undertaken in the simulator is generating large savings as refinements can be fed into the design phase of both programmes. The simulator can also be switched to represent the F35C Carrier Variant and US Nimitz carrier deck, as was demonstrated in this trial. Further trials are due to take place soon to test the same control law mode for F35B SRVL recoveries to the UK’s QEC aircraft carriers with the US Navy observing.

Talk to me: Are you prepared for voice banking?

first_imgWhen consumers talk, it’s always a good idea to listen. And right now, they’re talking about voice banking. In response, you should ask an important question: Is our financial institution ready to meet those consumer expectations?The popularity of voice banking – or conversational banking, which includes chat messaging functions – is evident across multiple market indicators, including the most recent quarterly consumer trends survey by Fiserv. The Expectations & Experiences: Channels and New Entrants survey found that half of consumers used a voice-activated device in the past year, with 79 percent of them doing so through their smartphones. The research, conducted in February by Harris Poll on behalf of Fiserv, surveyed 3,116 U.S. adults who used their checking accounts to pay a bill or make a purchase in the 30 days prior to the survey.The survey also found that 8 percent of consumers used a hands-free voice-activated device, such as Amazon Echo or Google Home in the past year. That percentage doesn’t seem so small when you consider the product category wasn’t even widely available until mid-2015. continue reading » 10SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Opoku Nti: Medeama tie is a ‘do or die’ affair

first_imgGeneral Manager of Asante Kotoko has labelled their crunch matchday 3 encounter against Medeama as a do or affair.The Porcupines head into the game win no win or goal this season albeit playing one game less.Presssure is beginning to mount of the 23 time league champions after their bitterest rivals Hearts of Oak had a superb start to the season.For Nti, they can’t afford to slip come Sunday.“Sunday is a do or die affair,” he told Adom Sports“Medeama have lost their first two matches we also lost our first match.” “We are playing at home and won’t allow Medeama to come ruin our day. It is surely do or die.”“Once Hearts are in top form, their fans begin to mock ours.”The General Manager has urged all fans to get behind the team in a bid to overturn their bad start.“If we are going to have an upper hand over them, then we must all get involved.”“We need all the supporters on board. They are our biggest sponsors.” “Years back, when we didn’t have sponsorship it was the fans who made the difference. That makes Kotoko ahead of the rest of the clubs in the country.”Kotoko play their outstanding fixture against Ashantigold in midweek.–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @JoySportsGH.
