There is exciting news about Rolls-Royce, a major aerospace organization headquartered in Indiana. They are one of the leading aerospace components manufacturers and is the second largest provider of aero-engine products in the defense industry. One of their facilities, Crosspointe, manufactures engine components for the Trent engine family and has recently awarded a contract with Praxair Surface Technologies. This 10-year contract will allow Praxair Surface Technologies to coat the rotating components in the jet engine which will aid with heat produced due to friction and will increase the part’s life. The Rolls-Royce engines will definitely benefit from Praxair’s abrasive coatings and allow their engines to perform better and require less maintenance.

Praxair is scheduled to start later this year around June or July, and will begin to use their Tribomet coating technology on the aerospace components. Many parts have a certain timeframe before they need to be replaced or maintained, and it can become a headache for an aircraft operator to not be able to fly an aircraft because of a faulty or worn-down part. As technology and research develops, companies like Praxair Surface Technologies will help lessen these unfortunate and unwanted moments and helps create a much smoother operational flow. Rolls-Royce engines are used all throughout the globe, and are used for many important military aircrafts. If these coatings help to keep these aircrafts in the air, then Rolls-Royce will benefit from this contract with Praxair. Furthermore, militaries and defense industries around the world will be able to keep their nations safer as these aircrafts perform more efficiently and effectively.

Harris Corp. an American technology company has succeeded in major expense savings and delivery milestones for avionics supporting the F-35 Lightning II, the Melbourne, Fla.-based aerospace producer noted this week. Since the commencement of the F-35 program, Harris has worked with engineering partners to deliver more than 780,000 items with 99.8 percent on time precision, which includes vibration secluded and liquid cooled avionics racks, power supplies for all aircraft mission systems, network boundary units that allow fiber optic data communication among mission subsystems within the entire aircraft, phased array antennas and data links that guarantee encoded and secure communication among the aircraft, and lightweight air-filled carriage and release racks that support the aircraft’s low visible profile. Harris is a great company and here at ASAP Semi we do a lot of business with them because they are always on time and reliable.

Right from the first deliveries of avionics, Harris has applied affordability enterprises that have reduced the avionics ship set cost for each aircraft by 64 percent. I love to get low prices, so I can give customers a better price and Harris does great at giving us low prices. Harris has also provided sectional components and common parts to 21 other F-35 contractors ensuing in more than $750 million in expense savings over the existence of the production program. As part of every individual aircraft, Harris delivers more than 1,500 module components, 58 network interface units, 21 power supplies, 7 integrated racks, 6 advanced antenna arrays, and 3 antenna interface units. Harris is a great one stop shop and has a lot of stock and low prices.

Boeing Co. engineers are being asked to make some enhancements to the Navy’s P-8A Poseidon Patrol Aircraft’s digital signal processing system. This aircraft is the military’s version of the Boeing 737 jetliner. The upgrade is being requested by the US Navy Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) and is under the terms of a $68.7 million contract. The Defense, Space & Security segment of Boeing is also being asked to improve the P-8A’S acoustic subsystem, which is the main component in operating the aircraft’s ASW functionality.

The Navy is asking Boeing for P-8A increment 3 block 2 acoustics subsystem capability enhancements, which include some software and system updates, technical support, management, defect correction, obsolescence mitigation and modernization. The goal of this update request is to initiate an open-systems approach in which the existing systems collaborate with and support future capability integration systems.
The Navy’s P-8A Aircraft Boeing-built acoustics subsystem includes previous updates. One of the previous updates to the system was the Multistatic Active Coherent Capability (MAC) which uses the SSQ-125 sonobuoy. The SSQ-125 sonobuoy generates sounds electronically as opposed to using explosive charges. It intercepts submarine sonar echoes and replays them to the P-8A aircraft’s system. This way of operating and generating sound is significantly more accurate than the former, resulting in fewer false returns.

 Another upgrade that was previously initiated for the P-8A Aircraft is the Automatic Information System and the High-Altitude ASW Weapon (HAAWC) system. This is a flying torpedo that is designed for release from high altitudes to suddenly enter the water in near proximity to enemy submarines in very little time. The HAAWC includes a GPS system, a data link and a Boeing-built wing kit. This enables the Navy’s P-8A Aircraft to have a wide range and maintain a large search area. It also enables increased standoff ranges from threats. There is a GPS satellite navigation capability included on the sonobuoys that are deployed by the P-8A aircrafts as well. This is to enables the Navy’s P-8A Patrol Aircraft the ability to maintain a precise plot of the suonobuoy field. They can reach altitude of 10,000 feet or higher.

In conclusion, the Navy’s P-8A Aircraft system capabilities are numerous. The goal is to develop and deploy new functions and capabilities quickly as they are generated, as opposed to delaying delivery for the purpose of presenting them all together. These updates will stay within the current size, weight, power and cooling margins of the P-8A aircraft. ASAP Aerospace is global distributor & manufacturer of Aerospace parts and are tested and covered under warranty.

There was a time when flying was just in the imagination of people’s minds, and many have tried to attempt to fly and failed. It wasn’t until the wright brothers put all their dedication and effort to invent and succeed the first prototype of an airplane. Since then airplanes have become a thing of the future, it allows us to travel thousands of miles in matters of hours when it used to take weeks and months to travel somewhere. Technology is another aspect that goes hand in hand with airplanes; the better technologically advanced we are then the better we can create solutions in the air. A simple example can be when the GPS was invented it made flying much easier because the since of direction and the ability to derive the location of the airplane has become significantly easier. Pilots are no longer dependent on the stars to locate where they are, and if there is a bad weather causing low visibility then finding direction can be extremely difficult.

It’s true that fossil fuels have created a change in history and without it; how we live today would have never happened this quickly. Fossil fuels made everything from transportation, manufacturing, Electricity to be available in the way it is available today and many more to happen. Aerospace and aviation are obviously a big user of fossil fuels and if it wasn’t for fossil fuels then the aerospace industry would have not been able to flourish the way it did for the past hundred years. Having said that; fossil fuels might be very important for the way we have grew globally in every aspect of life but it also has it’s cons due to carbon dioxide production as a bi-product of burning fossil fuels which is causing our atmosphere to heat up and it’s killing our ozone layer which is our protection from the sun rays.

Many people in the Los Angeles area, know what the Goodyear blimp is due to how big it is and its bright blue color on it. I believe this blimp is a great way of advertising and just by flying it in the air it gets exposed to thousands of eyes. The Airship Operations base is in Carson, they plan on making an improvement by the end of the year, which will include an inflatable hangar for the new Goodyear Blimp Wingfoot Two. These iconic blimps have been a type of advertisement for Goodyear for more than 90 years.

Since the early 1990’s the FCC has banned all cellphone use once the aircraft reaches 10,000 feet. I am sure all of us have been on an airplane ride and had to stop texting, a phone conversation, or even reading an article once the pilot has stated to do so. At that point you can only hope that the airline you have chosen to fly with has WiFi and for that matter, free WiFi.

Officials of the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in Arlington, VA., announced in late December the third and final phase of the DARPA Aircrew Labor In-Cockpit Automation System (ALIAS) PROGRAM. U.S. military avionics are almost in completion of making a cockpit automation to reduce the number of air crew. Researchers are getting close to develop drop-in flight automation systems that could eliminate the need for co-pilots. Which includes at least 80 percent of the U.S. military’s multi-crew aircrafts. The goal is to cut cost, enhance system performance, and reducing the human exposure to dangerous and life threatening situations.
