USS Fort Worth Launches First UAV

first_img USS Fort Worth Launches First UAV Back to overview,Home naval-today USS Fort Worth Launches First UAV November 18, 2013 Share this articlecenter_img Training & Education USS Fort Worth (LCS 3) conducted dynamic interface operations on the Point Mugu Test Range Nov. 5-13 with the Navy’s Vertical Takeoff Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (VTUAV) known as the MQ-8 Fire Scout.Although Fire Scouts have been used in the fleet onboard frigates, LCS is the first platform designed from the keel up to integrate and operate these unmanned helicopters.“Everything from the consoles in MCC (Mission Control Center), the displays, and antennas to the flight deck and UCARS were made for us to interface with Fire Scout” said Lt. Mike Chesnut, the combat systems officer for LCS Crew 104, “The Juggernauts”, who are currently the “on-hull” crew for Fort Worth.UCARS is the UAV Common Automated Recovery System, a present day “tractor beam” that locks on to the Fire Scout from miles away and brings it safely on deck without human intervention.The Fire Scout, replete with the most modern electro-optical and infrared cameras, can extend the ship’s senor range and greatly increase maritime awareness by relaying information back to the ship via data link.“It’s exciting to integrate new technology with LCS. That’s what this platform is about, flexibility and innovation,” said Cmdr. Kendall Bridgewater, Fort Worth’s executive officer.Fort Worth is scheduled to deploy next year with “The Mad Hatters” of HSM-35, Det. 1, the Navy’s first “composite” Air Detachment which will include both a manned SH-60R helicopter as well as unmanned Fire Scouts.[mappress]Press Release, November 18, 2013 read more

Lincoln JCR condemns page 3

first_imgA further abstainer, Andrew Bailey, also criticised the conduct of the debate, stating, “There was a feeling that people were being judged for not supporting the motion, which was unfair.” No one from the Sun was available for comment. Stefan Curtress, who abstained from voting, added, “Noting that the Sun has historically supported Labour in general elections, is this not a political statement? The vote to boycott the highest selling national newspaper yet again bolsters the perception of so called ‘Oxford elitism’ that Oxford studets are working hard to shake off, and indirectly gives off the feeling that any Sun reader is not a welcome member of our JCR.” A spokesperson for the campaign said, “We’re delighted that Lincoln College has chosen to boycott The Sun. More and more student bodies have decided to support No More Page 3 and by supporting the campaign, these Student Unions and JCRs have sent a powerful message to the students they represent that respect towards women is an absolute priority.” The No More Page 3 campaign, started by Lucy-Anne Holmes in August 2012, seeks to persuade the Sun to end its use of topless models; Brasenose College and Teddy Hall have already voted to unsubscribe.  A motion to unsubscribe from the Sun in protest at its ‘Page 3’ feature has been passed by Lincoln JCR, at a meeting that was condemned as “a mockery of the supposedly tolerant environment.”center_img A third year student who wished to remain anonymous commented, “Being apolitical contributed enormously to our JCR’s friendly atmosphere because, in a place where we all have strong opinions, no one made their opinion matter more than their peers. I am sad if we have lost that environment within college for any cause, even one I personally agree with.” Mary Clapp, who proposed the motion with Thomas Frost and Ben Goldstein, told Cherwell, “We proposed it on the grounds that the inclusion of ‘Page 3’ topless models and the ‘News in Brief’ was a sexist and misogynistic feature, and in buying the Sun for the JCR every member was paying for the Sun, and hence endorsing it.” Clapp added, “It was completely related to and inspired by the No More Page 3 campaign – a large reason the motion was passed was that people were aware of it being a larger movement that the JCR would be involved in.” However, several students opposed the motion or declined to vote arguing that to unsubscribe would be to take a political stance, stressing the importance of an apolitical JCR. last_img read more

Greater Manchester, South Yorkshire and Clwyd back SME fund

first_imgThe Greater Manchester, Clwyd and South Yorkshire UK local authority funds have committed to a £60m (€83.7m) small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) development fund.Launched by Foresight Group, it will target SMEs in the North West of England.The fund has attracted £20m from the Greater Manchester Pension Fund (GMPF) – at £17.6bn, the UK’s largest local authority scheme – and an undisclosed amount from the South Yorkshire Pensions Authority and Clywd Pension Fund.The fund will make private equity investments of up to £5m in businesses based in the English regions of Cheshire, Cumbria, Lancashire, Manchester, Merseyside, North East Wales and South Yorkshire. Foresight will open an office in Manchester to oversee investments, which it said would be across all sectors and types of private equity.Kieran Quinn, chairman at the GMPF, said: “This is an excellent example of local government pension schemes working collaboratively to generate commercial returns and provide a positive impact on the local economy.”The GMPF has previously spoken of the challenges in maintaining its 5% target allocation to private equity due to the rate at rate at which the asset class recycles capital.Bernard Fairman, chairman at Foresight, said the fund would seek to support a government initiative to revitalise growth in the UK’s North.“The region,” he said, “has a large number of underfunded SMEs, particularly within the niche engineering and hi-tech manufacturing sectors, creating opportunities for the fund to stimulate growth, generate jobs and deliver healthy risk-adjusted returns to investors.”Colin Everett, chief executive of Clwyd’s administering authority Flintshire County Council, added: “We are keen to collaborate with other local government pension schemes and believe this fund will provide a sustainable local economic impact along with commercial returns.”The GMPF’s £20m investment comes shortly after its £500m infrastructure joint venture with the London Pensions Fund Authority made its first investment, committing to a biomass fund.last_img read more

First LiDAR Deployed Off India

first_imgThe FOWIND Consortium has commissioned India’s first offshore LiDAR off the coast of Gujarat, in the Gulf of Khambhat, to measure the offshore wind resource. This marks India’s first systematic step towards measurement campaign, according to Balram Mehta, President of the Wind & Asset Management unit at ReNew Power.This offshore LiDAR is a Leosphere WINDCUBE v2 procured by FOWIND from MeteoPole. India’s National Institute of Wind Energy developed the offshore platform on which the LiDAR has been commissioned.The data will support India’s Ministry of New and Renewable Energy’s efforts towards exploring the full potential of offshore wind along India’s long coastline, FOWIND said.The four-year project aims to put together a roadmap for developing a sustainable and commercially viable offshore wind industry in India, FOWIND said, adding that with upcoming offshore wind feasibility assessments would further add to the knowledge of businesses and government institutions as to what is required for developing a successful offshore wind industry in India.The FOWIND consortium aims to complete the preliminary roadmap for offshore wind development in India in early 2018.“Providing the industry with preliminary measurement data to get a better understanding of the resource helps a great deal to make the stakeholders more comfortable since they can better estimate the risks involved,” said Mathias Steck, Executive Vice President & Regional Manager Asia Pacific, DNV GL – Energy.The consortium, led by the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), said that the commissioning of the LiDAR is another significant contribution towards ensuring that the offshore wind sector in India is supported by strong underlying technical data.In 2014, after a feasibility study of Indian offshore wind potential, Gujarat and Tamil Nadu were selected as ideal to feature the first Indian offshore wind farms. A year later, the FOWIND consortium released pre-feasibility reports which identified the key offshore areas where detailed wind resource assessment should take place off the coast of the two states.In October 2017, FOWIND launched a report that assesses the elements necessary in the future design of offshore wind farms to ensure grid integration with a preliminary evaluation of existing grid infrastructure across the two states.last_img read more
