MC-12 squadron stands up in Afghanistan

sábado, 9 de enero de 2010

The plane's deployment to Afghanistan follows a successful stint in
Iraq, where it was unveiled in combat for the first time in June. Two
months later, the six MC-12s based there had surpassed 300 combat

The turboprop aircraft is a product of Project Liberty, a $461 million
program launched in July 2008 to deploy 37 MC-12s and about 1,000
airmen by 2010 to provide more ISR aircraft over troops in combat.


Sidewinder to take aim at ground targets

A software tweak will transform the venerable Sidewinder missile,
known for its air-to-air precision, into a weapon that can strike
rapidly moving targets on the ground.

With three tests already proving that the AIM-9X Sidewinder can zero
in on a boat or armored personnel carrier, the next step is to refine
the way pilots aim and launch them, said Jeffrey White, AIM-9X program
manager at Raytheon Co., which developed the missiles. Those tests
begin this year.

CBP Takes First Guardian UAS

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials hope operational drug-interdiction tests of a prototype surveillance version of the Predator B unmanned aerial system (UAS) will spur acquisition of several more for maritime missions.

The modified aircraft—distinguished from other Predators by a large belly-mounted Raytheon APS-134 SeaVue surveillance radar and prominent wingtip-mounted UHF/VHF radio antennas—will ultimately be deployed to the drug-source and transit zones to support joint counter-narcotics missions against drug-running "go-fast boats" and semi-submersible craft.
