• The NACA at 100

    On March 3, 2015, NASA celebrates 100 years since the founding of its predecessor -- the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, or NACA. With a small budget and no paid staff, the NACA began developing the capabilities our nation needed to gain leadership in aeronautics. Throughout and beyond World War II, the NACA developed or helped develop many aeronautical breakthroughs that are still used today -- from engine cowlings, to retractable landing gear, and jet engine compressors and turbines. When the nation's focus began turning to space during the 1950s, it was decided that the NACA's 7,500 employees and $300 million in facilities would transition on October 1, 1958, to a new agency. Some of the NACA's brightest minds became leaders of the space effort and directors of NASA r...

He said that the rapid pace of technological changes is driving the growth in the sector. Sachtleben says that racing is very demanding on the machines as well as the electronics, and companies are always looking for ways to increase speed of the aircraft, as well as more responsive controllers that can respond to the rapid inputs that drone racing demands. "That's really pushed the industry to grow and develop. They used to do maybe 50 to 60 miles per hour around the course. Now they're pushing 80 to 85." Adding FPV to the mix also adds to the complexity, he said. Sachtleben also goes into some of the specifics of how the systems work, from controlling motor speeds to getting video from the aircraft to the FPV goggles and monitors normally found around the courses.

Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar has set himself a goal - he wishes India's defence exports to attain $2 billion within the subsequent years, from the cutting-edge stage of $300 million. Indigenously evolved defence merchandise - be it India's aircraft or helicopter - have generated interest inside the worldwide marketplace, mainly from African and Latin American countries. From HAL's mild combat Helicopter and LCA Tejas to BrahMos, we check 5 defence merchandise that India can examine exporting: LCH :: in line with a PTI file, India is in talks with "positive" international locations in Africa for possible export of the indigenous mild fight Helicopter (LCH). LCH is a 5.Five-tonne magnificence combat helicopter designed and developed by using HAL. Its functions encompass glossy and narrow fuselage, tri-cycle crash worthy touchdown tools, crash worth and self-sealing fuel tanks, armour safety, nuclear and coffee visibility features which makes the LCH lethal, agile and survivable. Designed for anti-tank and anti-infantry roles with a maximum pace of 275 kilometers according to hour, the LCH is also capable of high-altitude w@r considering the fact that its operational ceiling could be sixteen,000 to 18,000 ft. "With incredible cost for cash, the helicopter is an attractive buy for many countries. The nations interested in the LCH within the contemporary form do no longer need high functions like air to air system. For them turret gun at the side of a few different functions paintings," a senior defence legitimate has stated. BRAHMOS :: The supersonic cruise system system BrahMos, that's a joint task between India and Russia, has caught the eye of countries like Argentina, Venezuela, Chile and Brazil in Latin the united states and also of South Africa, which is a part of the BRICS grouping, because it has been advanced at a low fee of $three hundred million. (photograph: DRDO) BrahMos is a supersonic cruise system evolved by using DRDO and Russian NPO Mashinostroyeniya. The BrahMos may be launched from floor, submarine or air. Latin American countries in addition to South East Asian countries have expressed their interest for the Brahmos in particular for his or her naval and coastal defence. The BrahMos has a number 290 km, has a most pace of two.8 Mach and cruises at altitudes varying from 10 metres to 15 km, claims BrahMos. It can be launched in both willing or vertical configuration primarily based at the kind of the ship. Mild combat aircraft (LCA) Tejas :: India's light combat plane (LCA) Tejas, which became several years in the making, has now stuck the eye of overseas shoppers with Sri Lanka and Egypt evincing interest in the indigenously constructed fighter jet. Sri Lanka had recently rejected Pakistan's JF-17 aircraft constructed with chinese help, at the same time as Egypt had last yr signed a contract for twenty-four French-made Rafale fighter jets. The two countries are inquisitive about the present day model of the Tejas and now not the upgraded one to be able to be rolled out later. Tejas is possibly the sector’s smallest lightweight, multi-position unmarried engine tactical fighter aircraft. Tejas is equipped with a quadruplex virtual fly-by using-twine flight manage gadget to ease coping with by way of the pilot. It has intentionally been made longitudinally unstable to decorate manoeuvrability. Matters that move in favour of the Tejas are its lower fee and flying ability. Assets have informed PTI that enquiries by means of overseas countries got here at some stage in the Bahrain air display in January, the first time that Tejas flew outside the us of a. The choice to ship Tejas abroad became of Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar, who has put his weight at the back of the plane.

After starting my channel just a few years ago, I seem to have been slingshot-ed into the public domain and the TV world at high speed starting with Channel 5 and now the History Channel. This goes to show the real power that YouTube has and the way that TV companies pull new presenters and material from diverse online sources. The TV world is always looking for new talent and a fresh look at sometimes controversial subject matters. It finally seems that the hard research that I and other YouTube channels are doing is getting not only noticed but snapped up in a bid to keep up with research that is leaping forward at quite a pace. It also seems that the news press are finally taking heed of our articles although often with a not so subliminal sneer usually reserved for politicians. I now think there has been a polar shift in the media attitude towards exopolitics and planetary exploration caused by us online space geeks. Somebody high up in the food chain has finally realized that we are actually going to colonize Mars and perhaps other near bodies. Maybe some of the global elite want a place reserved in case of a global disaster down here on our choking Mother Earth. There is still a way to go yet but events are accelerating, just don't expect everyone to relish it. Keep searching!

This is the first in a series of ‘X-planes’ in NASA's New Aviation Horizons initiative, introduced in the agency’s Fiscal Year 2017 budget. NASA Administrator Charles Bolden announced the award at an event Monday at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport in Arlington, Virginia. “NASA is working hard to make flight greener, safer and quieter – all while developing aircraft that travel faster, and building an aviation system that operates more efficiently,” said Bolden. “To that end, it’s worth noting that it's been almost 70 years since Chuck Yeager broke the sound barrier in the Bell X-1 as part of our predecessor agency's high speed research. Now we’re continuing that supersonic X-plane legacy with this preliminary design award for a quieter supersonic jet with an aim toward passenger flight." NASA selected a team led by Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company of Palmdale, California, to complete a preliminary design for Quiet Supersonic Technology (QueSST). The work will be conducted under a task order against the Basic and Applied Aerospace Research and Technology (BAART) contract at NASA's Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia. After conducting feasibility studies and working to better understand acceptable sound levels across the country, NASA's Commercial Supersonic Technology Project asked industry teams to submit design concepts for a piloted test aircraft that can fly at supersonic speeds, creating a supersonic "heartbeat" -- a soft thump rather than the disruptive boom currently associated with supersonic flight. “Developing, building and flight testing a quiet supersonic X-plane is the next logical step in our path to enabling the industry's decision to open supersonic travel for the flying public," said Jaiwon Shin, associate administrator for NASA’s Aeronautics Research Mission. Lockheed Martin will receive about $20 million over 17 months for QueSST preliminary design work. The Lockheed Martin team includes subcontractors GE Aviation of Cincinnati and Tri Models Inc. of Huntington Beach, California. The company will develop baseline aircraft requirements and a preliminary aircraft design, with specifications, and provide supporting documentation for concept formulation and planning. This documentation would be used to prepare for the detailed design, building and testing of the QueSST jet. Performance of this preliminary design also must undergo analytical and wind tunnel validation. In addition to design and building, this Low Boom Flight Demonstration (LBFD) phase of the project also will include validation of community response to the new, quieter supersonic design. The detailed design and building of the QueSST aircraft, conducted under the NASA Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate's Integrated Aviation Systems Program, will fall under a future contract competition. NASA’s 10-year New Aviation Horizons initiative has the ambitious goals of reducing fuel use, emissions and noise through innovations in aircraft design that departs from the conventional tube-and-wing aircraft shape. The New Aviation Horizons X-planes will typically be about half-scale of a production aircraft and likely are to be piloted. Design-and-build will take several years with aircraft starting their flight campaign around 2020, depending on funding. **"We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites"**

The Aeronautical Development Agency (ADA), which has been working on the Advanced Medium Combat Aircraft (AMCA) program, although still at its early design and development phase, holds immense potential to replace a wide range of IAF aircraft which bringing quantum changes to fielded capability as the aircraft will be generation ahead of what the IAF currently fields, or is considering. The indigenous Light Combat Aircraft TEJAS, which the ADA has been developing over the last 2 decades, has created an aeronautics ecosystem for the AMCA program and once followed through would result in a shift from short-term tactical thinking to a more long-term strategic view, keeping pace with technological developments and meeting future threats. As a follow on to the TEJAS fighter, the AMCA program was identified to be in the 2-ton class, with support given by the Joint Review Committee of the IAF and Indian Navy on 16 July 2010. Development of the aircraft has been divided into four phases or approaches: Design Approach - designing and other activities Test Approach - project definition, wind tunnel testing and modelling Technology Development Approach - engineering technology manufacturing development (ETMD) and prototype development Manufacturing and Support Approach - development during manufacturing and upgrades druing the project lifetime. Considering the other twin-engine fifth generation fighter project with Russia called the Fifth Generation Fighter Aircraft (FGFA), defense minister Parrikar has cautiously stated that 'aspects of production and technology transfer are being looked into." before singing up for further development and eventual production of the type. =================================================== DISCLAIMER: Information, Facts or Opinion expressed in this Video are Presented as Sources and do not reflects views of INDIA TUBE and hence INDIA TUBE is not liable or responsible for the same.

India Should Feel Fear The Power of Pakistan Air Force Follow us on www.offensivemilitary.blogspot.com www.facebook.com/pakistanaffairs2017 www.twitter.com/pakistanaffairz Indian Air Force faces risk as Pakistan, China modernise: report BENGALURU: As China and Pakistan modernise air force at a rapid pace, Indian Air Force (IAF) faces risk without new western warplanes or the lack of local defence contractors ability to keep up with military needs in a timely manner, said a report published on IBN Live. According to experts, due to its reliance on a fleet of ageing Russian-made MiG and French Mirage fighters, India was vulnerable in the skies. Furthermore, half of India's fighters are due to retire in the start of 2015 until 2024. The Tejas light combat aircraft, which is India's first homegrown fighter, will be finally delivered in March, 30 years after it was conceived. However, senior air force officers privately said they were unimpressed. A former fighter pilot said that the plane was "so late it is obsolete". "It could lead to humiliation at the hands of our neighbours," AK Sachdev, a retired air force officer, wrote in the Indian Defence Review journal in 2014. He further added that an attack by China or Pakistan could stretch the Indian military. Defence strategists in New Delhi were asked to plan for this scenario, however experts said it is unlikely to take place. When it comes to India's ties with China, the relations are still crippled due to a dispute over their Himalayan border which led to war in 1962. New Delhi is also wary of China's close relations with Pakistan and its increasing naval presence in the Indian Ocean. Multiple crashes A paramilitary committee had said in December that IAF's strength has fallen below the government's approved strength of 42. There are 34 operational squadrons, down from 39 earlier this decade. Furthermore, in recent decades more than half of India's MiGs have crashed, the then defence minister said in 2012. On the other hand, China is flying locally built fourth-generation J-10 fighters and testing two fifth-generation stealth fighter jets. Meanwhile, Pakistan is upgrading its Lockheed Martin (LMT.N) F-16 fighter planes and also using JF-17 warplanes that were developed with China. According to Pakistani and Chinese industry sources, Pakistan is also in talks to buy J-10s. If it comes to war, India would still be victorious over Pakistan due to the sheer size of its air force. However, the slow modernisation means the win would come with heavy casualties, according to Richard Aboulafia, Washington DC-based vice president of analysis at the Teal Group, a defence think tank. India is buying more Su-30s and upgrading other existing fighters to keep up. "We do need to increase our defence preparedness," Prime Minister Narendra Modi told the opening ceremony of the Aero India airshow in Bengaluru on Wednesday. A senior official at the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) K. Tamilmani said that criticism of the Tejas was unfounded. DRDO is the defence ministry agency which designed and developed the plane. "The Tejas has a safety record that is unbeaten," Tamilmani said adding it would provide a platform to develop more advanced fighters in the future. Impasse over Rafale jets The Rafale fighters are expected to replace some of India's existing Mirage jets and MiGs. However, defence military officials have said that India insists that Dassault takes full responsibility for production of the air-craft at a state-run facility in Bengaluru. France has said it will help Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd with delivery schedules, however it cannot give guarantees of air-craft production at a facility that it has no administrative or expert control. Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar had said at the airshow that India will make a decision on the fate of this deal after March, when a committee of the defence ministry will deliver a report on the issue. Chairman at Indicia Research and Advisory (a New Delhi-based defence consulting firm) Deba Mohanty said that cancellation would be "disastrous". "It's a really tricky situation in which the supplier is unhappy, the bureaucrats are unhappy and the end user is disappointed," said Mohanty. Over the last few years, India successfully introduced Boeing's (BA.N) C-17 and P-8 Poseidon anti-submarine aircraft along with Lockheed Martin's C-130J. Experts said thiss hows off-the-shelf solutions work best. On the other hand, under Modi's "Make in India" programme, building a domestic defence industrial base is emphasised to reduce dependence on foreign supplies which led to India becoming the world's biggest arms importer.
