Nota de prensa

https://www.aernnova.com/es/lilium-se-asocia-con-aernnova-para-desarrollar-conjuntamente-el-diseno-y-la-fabricacion-del-sistema-de-sujecion-de-la-propulsion-del-lilium-jet/ 


Munich / Vitoria, 25 de mayo de 2022: Lilium N.V. (NASDAQ: LILM) («Lilium»), compañía que desarrolla el avión de despegue y aterrizaje vertical (eVTOL) totalmente eléctrico, ha seleccionado a Aernnova para el diseño y fabricación del sistema de sujeción de la propulsión del Lilium Jet.



Se trata del sistema de sujeción del motor o «flap», estructura de la parte trasera de las alas y canard, uno de los componentes clave del Lilium Jet que proporciona sustentación al interactuar con el flujo de aire del motor. También alberga los sistemas de propulsión vectorial, responsables del vuelo vertical y horizontal.



Los motores eléctricos integrados en los flaps de las alas proporcionan ventajas en cuanto a carga útil, eficiencia aerodinámica y reducción del nivel de ruido del motor, al tiempo que proporcionan un control del empuje vectorial para maniobrar el Lilium Jet en cada fase del vuelo.



Lilium y Aernnova colaborarán en el diseño, la fabricación y el suministro de los flaps del Lilium Jet.



Aernnova es un suministrador de primer nivel de estructuras aeronáuticas para los principales OEMs tales como Airbus, Boeing y Embraer. Este acuerdo constituye un paso importante hacia la producción en serie del Lilium Jet, siendo el objetivo de Lilium hacer realidad el transporte aéreo regional sostenible de alta velocidad.



El sistema de propulsión del Lilium Jet tendrá un diseño complejo y único. Un sistema integrado, con múltiples funciones, modular y expansible. Utilizará materiales ligeros como la resina epoxi reforzada con fibra de carbono.



Yves Yemsi, COO de Lilium, ha comentado: «Aernnova es una empresa líder en el diseño y fabricación de estructuras metálicas y de material compuesto en el sector aeroespacial, lo que le convierte en el socio perfecto. Para nosotros es importante colaborar con los mejores proveedores aeroespaciales y aprovechar su experiencia».



Ricardo Chocarro, CEO de Aernnova, ha manifestado: «Con más de 28 años de experiencia en el desarrollo y fabricación de estructuras de aeronaves, estamos orgullosos de formar parte de este proyecto tan emocionante y único como el de Lilium Jet. Este avión totalmente eléctrico tiene la oportunidad de cambiar la industria de la aviación de forma positiva y sostenible. Es un orgullo para nosotros convertirnos en socio clave de este proyecto.»



Acerca de Lilium   

Lilium (NASDAQ: LILM), está desarrollando una forma sostenible y accesible de transporte regional de alta velocidad para personas y mercancías. Con el Lilium Jet, un avión de despegue y aterrizaje vertical totalmente eléctrico, con altas capacidades, bajo nivel de ruido y alto rendimiento con cero emisiones operativas, Lilium está acelerando la descarbonización del transporte aéreo. De la mano de importantes socios aeroespaciales, tecnológicos y de servicios de infraestructura, y con redes de lanzamiento planificadas anunciadas en Alemania, Estados Unidos y Brasil, el equipo de más de 750 personas de Lilium incluye aproximadamente 450 ingenieros aeronáuticos y un equipo de liderazgo responsable de entregar algunos de los aviones de éxito en la historia de la aviación.

Textron Aviation increases its service footprint in Spain, adds mobile service location in Madrid | Textron Aviation Media Center

Press release

https://media.txtav.com/214632-textron-aviation-increases-its-service-footprint-in-spain-adds-mobile-service-location-in-madrid 

Capitalizing on its continued growth in Europe, Textron Aviation has opened a new mobile service location in Madrid, Spain. The Madrid-Barajas Airport location will act as an extension of its factory service center in Valencia, to initially support in-region customers who own Cessna Citation jets and Caravan turboprops. This new location will offer additional flexibility to customers and complement the company's Aircraft on Ground (AOG) response.

 


The mobile service location can conduct minor service tasks including troubleshooting and AOG support at any given time. With this expansion, Textron Aviation is increasing its team support in Madrid with the addition of two technicians and one office administrator. The company has more than 450 Textron Aviation employees in Europe providing customers local access to factory-direct expertise.

 


Textron Aviation leads the European market with nearly 1,800 jet and turboprop aircraft operating in the region. Textron Aviation Inc., a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, expanded its footprint in Germany last fall at its Stuttgart facility, now a satellite service center.

Raytheon Intelligence & Space and Kord team-up to defeat multiple mortars and large drones with Stryker-mounted 50kW-energy laser


Press release

https://www.rtx.com/news/news-center/2022/05/16/raytheon-intelligence-space-and-kord-team-up-to-defeat-multiple-mortars-and-lar 

In a recent U.S. Army operational assessment at White Sands Missile Range, the 50kW-class high energy laser weapon demonstrated repeatable counter-mortar capability



LAS CRUCES, N.M., May 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- In four weeks of continuous live-fire exercises, an industry team led by Raytheon Intelligence & Space, a Raytheon Technologies (NYSE: RTX) business, and Kord, a wholly owned subsidiary of KBR, defeated multiple 60mm mortar rounds with a 50kW-class high energy laser integrated on a Stryker combat vehicle.



The directed energy weapon system — part of the U.S. Army's Directed Energy Maneuver-Short Range Air Defense, or DE M-SHORAD — acquired, tracked, targeted and defeated multiple mortars and successfully accomplished multiple tests simulating real-world scenarios.



Continuing to put the DE M-SHORAD system to the test, the recent operational assessment at White Sands Missile Range also included defeating several small, medium and large drones.



"Soldiers in the field face increasingly complex threats, and our combat-proven sensors, software, and lasers are ready to give them a new level of protection," said Annabel Flores, president of Electronic Warfare Systems for Raytheon Intelligence & Space. "The Army gave us our toughest challenge yet — countering rockets, artillery and mortars — and we took an essential step on the path to providing the maneuverable, short range air defense Soldiers need."



The DE M-SHORAD effort is aimed at protecting soldiers against various aerial threats, including unmanned aircraft systems, rotary-wing aircraft, rockets, artillery and mortars. Kord serves as the primary integrator of the system on the Stryker combat vehicle, while Raytheon Intelligence & Space provides the 50kW-class high energy laser weapon module, a specialized radar acquisition system, a beam control system and targeting sensor.



"This team once again showed that the HEL system is fully-integrated and ready to provide protection against complex threats," said Byron Bright, President of KBR Government Solutions. "With an effectively infinite magazine and near-zero cost per shot, HEL is now the proven answer to asymmetric threats like drones and mortars."



The joint industry team, which includes Rocky Research for power and thermal management, General Dynamics Land Systems for the Stryker platform, and Applied Technology Associates for additional sensors, is preparing to deliver four DE M-SHORAD units to Army Brigade Combat Teams in 2022.



RI&S' high energy laser weapon systems, built in McKinney, Texas, works on land, in the air and at sea, providing 360-degree coverage that can protect bases, airports, stadiums and other high-value military or civilian assets. Open architecture, scalable power, and ruggedized design adapts to the demands of the mission. HEL weapons can be used as standalone systems or rapidly installed on a variety of platforms. Major suppliers for the system are based in Huntsville, Alabama; Albuquerque, New Mexico; Portland, Oregon; East Granby, Connecticut; and Los Angeles, California.

Record Jet Suit Mountain Ascent - YouTube

«We proved you can scale a Lake District Mountain (3100ft Helveylln) in 3mins 30 seconds, despite very poor visibility that would have grounded a HEMS Helicopter. The Mountain Rescue foot response is over 70 minutes typically. The route was 1.2 miles and 2200ft of height gain. This is the latest in a series of Paramedic Response Exercises to prove capability in parallel with training up real Paramedics to provide first response Critical Care in hard to reach geographies. Cardiac, breathing or blood loss cases are time critical and require rapid stabilisation to buy time for evacuation. This system, akin to the rapid response of a Paramedic on a motorbike in an urban environment, will be the difference between life and death for many critical cases.»

Major upgrade to Compass Call with open system architecture | BAE Systems | International

Press releasehttps://www.baesystems.com/en/article/major-upgrade-to-compass-call-with-open-system-architecture






BAE Systems successfully flight tested three third-party software applications on its Scalable Adaptive Bank of Electronic Resources (SABER) technology. SABER is the backbone of Compass Call, a next-generation electromagnetic attack weapon system that disrupts enemy command and control communications, radar, and navigation systems. The test flights demonstrated the technology's agility in delivering advanced electromagnetic warfare capabilities to Compass Call.




"BAE Systems has been keeping Compass Call ahead of the curve as its prime mission system contractor for more than 20 years," said Jared Belinsky, director of Electronic Attack Solutions at BAE Systems. "We're continuously developing technology to help dominate the electromagnetic spectrum and keep our military service members safe."




The hallmark of SABER is its open system architecture that enables the rapid integration of new technology through software updates instead of hardware reconfiguration. It also allows for multiple system upgrades to counter emerging threats.




The U.S. Air Force Compass Call Test Team, with support from BAE Systems, tested the new applications. BAE Systems integrated the applications with a non-proprietary SABER software development kit. The successful flight test is leading to fielding of the SABER capability on the EC-130H.




The EC-130H Compass Call mission system is currently being transferred to the Gulfstream G550 business jet, designated the EC-37B .




Work on SABER is being conducted at BAE Systems' state-of-the-art facility in Hudson, N.H.
