Australia: Northrop Grumman Showcases Its Portfolio at Pacific 2013

first_img Australia: Northrop Grumman Showcases Its Portfolio at Pacific 2013 October 7, 2013 View post tag: Defence Back to overview,Home naval-today Australia: Northrop Grumman Showcases Its Portfolio at Pacific 2013 View post tag: portfolio View post tag: Naval Northrop Grumman Corporation is participating in the Pacific 2013 International Maritime Exposition in Sydney, where it will highlight its maritime security capabilities, including unmanned aircraft systems for maritime and coastal surveillance, marine navigation, radar and mine detection systems, and maritime domain awareness. “Northrop Grumman is committed to supporting the Australian Defence Force and to providing affordable capabilities in C4ISR, unmanned systems, cyber and logistics,” said Ian Irving, chief executive Australia, Northrop Grumman Corporation. “We continue to strengthen our presence in Australia and to build partnerships with industry to help us grow a strong defence and security enterprise. This is reflected in the acquisition of M5 Network Securities, the close strategic partnership with CEA Radar Technologies and the recently announced agreement to acquire Qantas Defence Services. Pacific 2013 provides us with the opportunity to showcase the breadth of our capabilities and demonstrate our industry leadership.”Northrop Grumman’s airborne surveillance capability will be highlighted with a scale model of the Triton unmanned aircraft system on display. “The Triton high-altitude unmanned aircraft system is well suited for Australia. The system can fly missions for 24 hours at altitudes of more than 10 miles, allowing the system to monitor vast areas of ocean and coastal regions. It would be a strong national security asset, capable of performing a wide array of civilian roles, such as responding to natural disasters, bushfires, environmental monitoring and drug interdiction in addition to its considerable military capabilities,” said Irving.Triton is a derivative of the combat-proven Global Hawk unmanned aircraft for maritime surveillance. Its unique suite of sensors allows the system to provide a continuous on-station presence for some of the most demanding surveillance missions. The system’s radar allows the Triton to monitor a full 360-degree field of view enabling the radar to spotlight a geographic area of interest for longer periods to increase detection capabilities for smaller targets, particularly in sea clutter.A full-scale model of the MQ-8C Fire Scout unmanned helicopter will also be on display at the show. The MQ-8C Fire Scout uses a larger airframe than the previous MQ-8B variant to deliver more range, payload capacity and endurance to naval forces. Fire Scout can land and take off from any aviation-capable naval ship.In a separate exhibit, Northrop Grumman’s capabilities in integrated solutions for maritime domain awareness will be demonstrated using its enhanced C4ISR Operationally Responsive Enterprise (eCORE) system. eCORE is an ISR integration platform that provides data sharing at all levels of operations to enable rapid mission integration, deployment, support, training and maintenance.Northrop Grumman’s capability in mine detection will be highlighted at the show. The AQS-24A high-speed mine-hunting system can be towed from the MH-53E and MCH-101 helicopters, and unmanned surface vessels. The AQS-24A and its predecessor systems, AQS-24 and the AQS-14, are the only operational airborne mine-hunting search systems used by the U.S. Navy for the past 29 years. The Airborne Laser Mine Detection System is a laser-based, light detection and ranging sensor system that detects, classifies and localizes near-surface mine-like objects from above the waterline and is complementary to the AQS-24A.The company’s role as a principal member of the Lockheed Martin-led F-35 Lightning II industry team will also be featured. In addition to producing the F-35 centre fuselage, Northrop Grumman designed and produces the aircraft’s radar and other key avionics, including the electro-optical distributed aperture system (DAS) and communications, navigation and identification (CNI) subsystems. The AN/AAQ-37 DAS is a high-resolution, omni-directional infrared sensor system that provides advanced spherical situational awareness capability, including missile and aircraft detection, track and warning capabilities for the F-35. The AN/ASQ-242 CNI systems provides F-35 pilots with the capability of more than 27 avionics functions while greatly reducing size, weight and power demands.On display will be a model of the APR-39, which acts as a radar warning receiver and aircraft survivability equipment suite controller, capable of integrating with and displaying data from a wide variety of sensors. The APR-39 provides rapid identification and continuous 360-degree threat warning from radio frequency threats.Highlighted in the exhibit will be Northrop Grumman’s role in the EA-18G Growler airborne electronic attack aircraft, a derivative of the combat-proven, two-seat F/A-18 Hornet. The company is the principal subcontractor and is responsible for design and production of the shipset – the centre/aft fuselage section, twin vertical tails and all associated subsystems – for the single-seat F/A-18E, the two-seat F/A-18F Super Hornet, and the EA-18G Growler electronic warfare aircraft.In addition, the latest generation of marine navigation and radar technologies will be showcased. The latest Mod 4 version of the MK 39 inertial navigation solution provides both high accuracy geographic position information, with or without GPS, and precise attitude and heading data for fire control stabilization and weapons initialization.Highlighted will be Northrop Grumman’s consolidated and secure command, control, communications, computers and intelligence (C4I) infrastructure that employs scalable, modular ad open systems architecture with cyber defence to improve maritime C4I effectiveness at lower operational and maintenance cost.[mappress]Press Release,October 7, 2013 View post tag: 2013 View post tag: Defense View post tag: Northropcenter_img View post tag: Pacific View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Grumman View post tag: Australia Equipment & technology View post tag: Navy View post tag: Showcases Share this articlelast_img read more

Video of Tow-In Surfing in Ocean City in Joaquin Swell

first_imgThe relentless winds of a four-day northeast gale subsided on Monday just as the swell from distant Hurricane Joaquin began to arrive in Ocean City.The combination produced a crushing overhead break at Ocean City’s downtown beaches. Few surfers ventured out, but those who did put on a show for the boardwalk crowd as the sun set.We captured a little of the action at Sixth Street. Personal watercraft provided an easy trip out through the shore break and a jump start into the waves for some surfers. It was sort of a tow-in without a tow line.Joaquin is weakening and moving farther out toward the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, but big surf should continue for the next couple days with unfavorable north winds fading a bit more on Tuesday and possibly turning offshore by Wednesday.last_img read more

Paper probes legacy health effects of occupational secondhand smoke

first_imgA new paper on the effects of secondhand smoke on never-smokers has been published recently by SHINE Harvard researchers working on a Flight Attendant Health Study.The study reports associations between legacy secondhand tobacco smoke (SHTS) exposure going back decades and several severe cardiovascular and respiratory outcomes, including MI, PAD, and repeated pneumonia. The researchers found no evidence of positive associations between SHTS and any cancer, but observed associations between SHTS and cardiac outcomes, including myocardial infarction, and peripheral artery disease. The study also found associations between SHTS exposure and repeated pneumonia.SHTS is a preventable and modifiable exposure that continues to be a substantial cause of morbidity and premature death worldwide. Only 28 U.S. states have comprehensive public smoking bans and a large percentage of the world’s population is exposed to SHTS in the home, community, and workplace, with racial and ethnic minorities and those of lower socioeconomic status disproportionately affected. This represents a tremendous public health burden in light of severe and commonly occurring health outcomes, no known safe level of exposure, and the fact that we observed associations despite decades elapsing since implementation of in-flight smoking bans.The findings, if confirmed, have implications for informing smoking cessation efforts, and clarifying health education and clinical guidelines among patients with SHTS exposure histories, even in the distant past.

Law Commission should offer clarity, avoid fiduciary duty statute – NAPF

first_imgIn its response to the Law Commission’s consultation on fiduciary duties, the association said it was unconvinced of the need for a statutory underpinning for fiduciary duties.“Instead, the Law Commission may wish to consider producing an open letter that could be sent to trustees and investment intermediaries summarising the key conclusions,” it said.“This exercise would benefit trustees by making it clearer they can consider wider factors such as ESG issues when making investment decisions, and that fulfilment of stewardship responsibilities is compatible – indeed, aligned – with a trustee’s fiduciary duty.”The Law Commission’s review of legal duties, announced last year, started a debate about the need to codify fiduciary duties, one that has led to warnings that any attempt to draw up primary legislation could not be a “magic solution”.The association’s response also touched on governance in defined contribution (DC) funds, arguing that contract-based schemes – run by the for-profit insurance industry – could still offer good member outcomes if they were well governed.It said that, to ensure good governance in such arrangements, employers should be obliged to “put in place a governance arrangement to support the interests of pension savers”.It also seemed uncertain if proposed provider-level governance boards would be effective in addressing the governance “vacuum”.“If Independent Governance Committees are formed,” the consultation said, “they should be constituted primarily to act on behalf of employers, who, as the purchasers, are the actors that should have responsibility for bringing in pension arrangements that offer value for money and also have the most influence over the provider (regardless of the fact that the employee holds the individual contract).”The Law Commission previously warned that legal duties were insufficient to protect the interest of DC members and said they needed to be enforced by an efficient regulatory system.,WebsitesWe are not responsible for the content of external sitesNAPF response to UK Law Commission review Rather than the Law Commission recommending greater clarity through statute, pension trustees and asset managers in the UK should be offered greater guidance on the scope of fiduciary duties, the National Association of Pension Funds (NAPF) has said.The association also said it accepted there was a governance “vacuum” in some contract-based pension arrangements that could harm member outcomes, but was unconvinced that proposed provider-level trustee boards were best way to solve the problem.Will Pomroy, corporate governance policy lead at the NAPF, said pension trustees already had a “good grasp” of fiduciary duties, and knew it was their responsibility to act in the best interest of their member.“The law as it is currently understood allows trustees to use their judgement and discretion appropriately,” he added. “This flexibility extends to the consideration of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors and to the fulfilment of their stewardship responsibilities as set out within the UK Stewardship Code.”last_img read more
