SpaceX loses out to ULA for $191M Air Force contract   
United Launch Alliance's rocket launches are more expensive than its rival SpaceX — but that didn't stop ULA from scoring a major military contract. Centennial, Colorado-based ULA — a joint venture between global giants Lockheed Martin Corp. (NYSE: LMT) and The Boeing Co. (NYSE: BA) — on June 29 won a $191 million contract from the U.S. Air Force, according to a U.S. Department of Defense report. As part of the deal, ULA will perform launch services to deliver the Space Test Program-3 (STP-3)…

How to apply water-slide decals:
1. Preparation: to achieve better result, a gloss or semi-gloss coat is very important. It will make a smooth layer which the decals will suction to and make it much easier to apply and set them.
2. Cut out the decal you need (do it on cutting mat)
3. Grab the decal with tweezers, place it on the surface of the water and leave it for about 20 seconds.
4. Remove the decal from the water and place it on paper towel to remove any excess water.
5. Apply decal solution to the part where the decal is to be placed.
6. Slide the decal off the backing paper on to the model. Using a paint brush or cotton bud is a good way to do this without damaging the decal.
7. Use the brush, knife or cotton bud to position the decal. Using your paper towel, gently dab the decal and soak up the excess water (decal softner is also recommended at this stage. After applying softner, the decal will suction to the part and flatten out smooth.)
8. When the decal is completely dry, give another coat of varnish or Klear/Future to seal it.

          Turning the U.S.-India Alignment into an Alliance   

"Our robust strategic partnership is such that it touches upon almost all areas of human endeavor....We consider the USA as our primary partner for India's social and economic transformation in all our flagship programs and schemes," proclaimed Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on June 26. The venue was the joint press conference with President Donald Trump following their lengthy meeting at the White House. This is a sentiment that America must strengthen and build upon to contain the expanding ambitions of China.

Of course, diplomatic niceties prevented any actual public mention of the Communist regime as a common threat to the world's two largest democracies. Nor was China's ally Pakistan mentioned, even as the two leaders talked about defeating terrorism in the region. President Trump noted "Both our nations have been struck by the evils of terrorism, and we are both determined to destroy terrorist organizations and the radical ideology that drives them. We will destroy radical Islamic terrorism." In the case of India, terrorism has been linked directly to Pakistan which has been supporting an insurgency in Kashmir ever since that Muslim province was incorporated into India when the British Raj was partitioned in 1947.

Pakistan was founded as an Islamic state with the mission to unite all Muslims in the region. India was founded on a more tolerant, multicultural democratic standard and counts 175 million Muslims among its 1.3 billion citizens. In must be remembered that it was Pakistan that blocked a UN plebiscite on Kashmir's fate because it feared too many Muslims would vote to live in the more attractive society of India than in a militant regime. Pakistan failed in its bid to seize control of Kashmir but has continued to stir up jihadist movements in the province. Vice President Mike Pence, speaking to the U.S.-India Business Council on June 27, mentioned how "barbarians have struck on Indian soil too many times over the decades, including the horrific attacks in Mumbai nearly a decade ago, claiming the lives of more than 160 innocents, including six Americans." That attack was traced to Pakistan. Hours before Modi's arrival, the State Department imposed sanctions on Syed Salahuddin, the Pakistan-based leader of Hizbul Mujahideen, the main Kashmir terrorist group.

PM Modi stated, "Fighting terrorism and doing away with the safe shelters, sanctuaries, and safe havens will be an important part of our cooperation," clearly with Pakistan in mind; not only regarding Kashmir, but also Afghanistan. The U.S. and its coalition (which includes India, for whose contributions President Trump thanked Modi) cannot end the war in Afghanistan as long as the Taliban (and now ISIS) can lick their wounds and rebuild their forces in Pakistan; free to cross the border at times of their own choosing. 

The threat from China was alluded to when President Trump mentioned how Indian forces "will join together with the Japanese navy to take part in the largest maritime exercise ever conducted in the vast Indian Ocean." What links Japan and India is concern over Beijing's expansion across the Pacific Rim and into the Indian Ocean. Beijing's ambitious "Belt and Road" development initiative which is designed to impose a "common destiny" on Eurasia is opposed by both India and Japan. The Chinese plan will build on programs hat have already been underway in Pakistan and Sri Lanka, posing direct threats to Indian security.

The U.S. and Japan can and must counter the Chinese initiative by increasing their role in developing the Indian economy, which can truly be a "win-win" relationship. China's rise has been fueled by short-sighted American business firms willfully ignorant of the true nature of the Beijing regime. They have transferred technology and production capacity to a strategic rival of their home country. The pursuit of private profit without adequate supervision by a Washington establishment blinded by naive liberal hopes and corrupted by corporate cash has helped to create a threat Americans will have to face for decades to come. It would be a much better world if all the Western capital sent to China had gone to India instead. Trade is properly conducted among friends, not adversaries where the "gains from trade" are used to create menacing capabilities.

With the world's largest population, India presents a massive market for American goods of all kinds. President Trump, however, concentrated his remarks on energy and security. We are "looking forward to exporting more American energy to India as your economy grows, including major long-term contracts to purchase American natural gas." To the extent that imported gas replaces Indian coal, it will help New Delhi clean up the air pollution that makes its cities look as bad at those in China. VP Pence added nuclear power and clean coal to the list of energy sources the U.S. could help New Delhi develop. President Barack Obama had carried his "war on coal" overseas with a ban on any U.S. aid to the Indian coal industry. But India is not going to abandon its massive coal reserves; their use can, however, be improved.   

Modernizing India's military is central to the strategic alignment. VP Pence mentioned to the USIBC that "the United States will sell Sea Guardian UAVs, Apache attack helicopters, and C-17 transports to India." A larger program on the table is the sale of 126 fighter jets to India. The Lockheed F-16 "Viper" is the leading candidate, but the Saab JAS-39 "Gripen" is also in the running, though a strategic link to Sweden makes little sense in an Asian setting. India, however, is moving from being a consumer of military hardware to a producer, as any Great Power must do. Modi has a "make it in India" policy and Lockheed is willing to set up an F-16 production line there. The question is whether this will be considered "outsourcing" by the Trump administration. It should not be as long as the production is for Indian service and does not replace jobs in U.S. industry supplying the Pentagon. The F-16 is long out of production for the USAF. The new F-35 "Lightning II" is coming into service (also built by Lockheed).

Indian production should be seen as "market extension" which will create additional work for American factories and maintenance services, not only for this order of warplanes but for future orders of military equipment of many kinds as the strategic relationship deepens. It should be noted that the first European production line for the F-16 opened in 1978; so India is not asking for anything novel.

The need to offer "co-production" to win military contracts is a subject not often discussed in public debates over arms sales, but it is a part of many transactions. Offset arrangements can also involve local purchasing, subcontracting, investment, and technology-transfer requirements on U.S. exporters that benefit foreign firms in the purchasing country. The U.S. defense industry is the world's leader, but its comparative advantage does not yield the full returns economic textbooks promise because of real world practices like offsets. These are negotiated between foreign governments and corporations in virtually every deal. The state authorities have the greater leverage, as it is generally a buyer's market; but strategic considerations also play their part. Our officials must keep a close eye on such deals to keep a proper balance between risks and rewards to the U.S. defense industrial base.

India's offset requirements have been at the low end of the international scale. Caught between two allied nuclear powers, China and Pakistan, New Delhi needs to modernize its forces; but it also needs a domestic industrial infrastructure to support its armed services. This is why offsets, though generally banned in the commercial sector under the World Trade Organization, are allowed for national security reasons. What is truly important cannot be left to the "invisible hand"--- which means the hands of others.

President Trump and Prime Minister Modi are both nationalists in a dangerous world. As Modi put it, "I am sure that the convergence between my vision for a 'new India' and President Trump's vision for 'making America great again' will add new dimensions to our cooperation." Let us work to make it so in a positive way.

          Designing for the new Space Launch System   
Vanessa Aponte
SLS Launch

Vanessa AponteVanessa Aponte has rubbed shoulders with astronauts, designed equipment that has gone to space, and worked with military technology so new she is not allowed to talk about it. As a Lockheed Martin engineer and CU Aerospace PhD graduate, she has achieved great things and gone further than many would have thought possible for someone raised in rural southwest Puerto Rico speaking only Spanish.

Growing up, Aponte did well in science but was unclear what her future could hold. Thanks to encouragement from a teacher in high school, she decided to become a chemical engineer. She earned both a BS and MS in Puerto Rico, but was not fulfilled.

One summer in college, she landed an internship at CU Boulder and happened to attend an event that would change her life’s direction. It was a presentation made by astronauts who flew on STS-77, the mission with the famous space Coca-Cola dispenser, a unit designed by BioServe Space Technologies at CU Boulder.

That is when she realized aerospace was her true calling. She moved to Boulder to pursue a PhD and has been in Colorado ever since. While Aponte was born on an island, she has fallen in love with the Front Range.

“The mountains beckoned me here," Aponte says.

Designing A New Way to Space

During her time as a PhD student, she focused on microelectromechanical systems or MEMS, particularly development of technology to monitor astronaut immune response. After graduating, she was hired by Lockheed Martin Space Systems for a position at their Waterton Canyon complex working on a key NASA-funded project.

 "I interviewed there and they were working on Orion and it just blew me away. The prospect of designing the next generation space vehicle and getting to stay in Colorado was too enticing," she says.

Aponte spent six years on Orion, helping redesign the old space shuttle launch pads for the new craft and later working on environmental systems.

"It's amazing to design something that has gone to space. Even if I don’t get to go myself, it’s something explorers will fly," she says.

She is now in her 11th year at Lockheed Martin, with her current assignment in the company’s military support program. She leads a team of technical experts on evaluation of new technologies. It is a position working on the bleeding edge of science and engineering.

 "New semiconductors, special materials, software, and certain things I’m not allowed to talk about. The goal is to minimize risk with unproven technology for critical space assets,” she says.

It is a job many engineers would salivate over, and she landed it almost by accident.

"The Chief Engineer retired and I volunteered to fill-in while they hired a replacement," Aponte says.

Two years later, she is still in the role, and on a permanent basis.

"I volunteer for a lot at Lockheed Martin. Things people don't want to do. The shuttle launch pad Orion redesign I asked for and my boss discouraged me from it. It's one of the most fun projects I ever did."

Despite enjoying her work, there is one job Aponte would not hesitate to leave Lockheed Martin for: NASA astronaut. She has twice applied, and made it through NASA’s grueling process of interviews, testing, and physical fitness evaluations, but was not selected either time. It was disappointing, but has not diminished her enthusiasm.

Giving Back

In fact, the excitement she feels about aerospace extends beyond her career and into the volunteer realm, where she spends time promoting engineering to the next generation.

She has worked with Big Brothers Big Sisters, Girls Inc., and Shades of Blue, which promotes aviation and aerospace at the K-12 level. Each semester, she brings high school students to CU Boulder to talk about the industry and showcase new research.

“I grew up without a vision that I could amount to something. It took special people in my life to say, 'You can do it,' and turn my uncertainty into passion. It's my duty to do the same," Aponte says.

          Comment on Vector obtains $21 million in funding by Edward   
That is the beautiful part of free market capitalism. The companies that provide a better service or a more desirable price are the ones that are efficient enough to survive. The others either have to improve their efficiency or get out of the business. This means that the investors (like those investing $21 million) are eager that the company do well. Lockheed Martin recently announced the end of their Athena rocket business, which launched small satellites to orbit as well as the Lunar Prospector probe. Athena couldn't compete with the new rockets coming on the market, and was so expensive that it only launched half a dozen times over the past two decades. Congratulations to Vector for making it this far -- it isn't easy -- and I wish Vector continued success in the future.
          Ο HELLAS SAT 3 ΤΑΞΙΔΕΥΕΙ ΣΤΟ ΔΙΑΣΤΗΜΑ   
Παρότι τα τελευταία τέσσερα χρόνια έχει... ξενιτευτεί, τα μεσάνυχτα της Τετάρτης 28ης Ιουνίου, στις 23.59 ώρα Ελλάδας, ετοιμάζεται να μεταφέρει και πάλι τα ελληνικά χρώματα στο Διάστημα! Ο εκτοξευτήρας Ariane 5 έχοντας τις σημαίες της Ελλάδας και της Κύπρου στην κορυφή του θα εκτοξεύσει από το Γκουρού της Γαλλικής Γουιάνας τον νέο δορυφόρο Hellas Sat 3 της εταιρείας Hellas Sat.
Ο νέος κατ' όνομα ελληνικός δορυφόρος που ανήκει πλέον στην Arabsat, θα τοποθετηθεί στην τροχιακή θέση της Ελλάδας και της Κύπρου στις 39° ανατολικά, με σκοπό να αντικαταστήσει τον υφιστάμενο δορυφόρο Hellas Sat 2.
Ο Hellas Sat 3 θα υποστηρίζει νέες καινοτόμες δορυφορικές υπηρεσίες, επεκτείνοντας τις εργασίες της Hellas Sat σε Ευρώπη, Μέση Ανατολή και Υποσαχάρια Αφρική. Παράλληλα, θα είναι ο δορυφόρος που θα παρέχει Ιντερνετ και τηλεφωνία, σε συνεργασία με τον οργανισμό Inmarsat, σε όλα τα αεροπλάνα που υπερίπτανται της Ευρωπαϊκής Ενωσης!
Στον διαστηµικό χάρτη
Το γεγονός αυτό θεωρείται ιδιαίτερα σημαντικό για την Ελλάδα, αφού έστω και έτσι διατηρούνται τα κυριαρχικά της δικαιώματα στο Διάστημα και επανατοποθετείται η χώρα στον διεθνή διαστημικό χάρτη.
Υπενθυμίζεται ότι η εταιρεία παροχής δορυφορικών υπηρεσιών Hellas Sat άρχισε τις δραστηριότητές της τον Αύγουστο του 2001, με την υπογραφή της σχετικής σύμβασης αδειοδότησης από το ελληνικό και το κυπριακό Δημόσιο. Εκτοτε η εταιρεία καταγράφει διαρκώς ανοδική πορεία, η πληρότητα του πρώτου εμπορικού δορυφόρου Hellas Sat 2 ξεπερνάει το 80% τα πέντε πρώτα χρόνια λειτουργίας του και το αμέσως επόμενο διάστημα εξυπηρετεί πάνω από 100 πελάτες σε 30 χώρες. Σήμερα, περισσότερες από 2.500.000 δορυφορικές κεραίες είναι στραμμένες προς τον Hellas Sat 2! Οταν ο ΟΤΕ αποφάσισε να απεμπλακεί από την επένδυσή του στην Hellas Sat το 2011, όλοι οι μεγάλοι δορυφορικοί οργανισμοί συμμετείχαν στον διαγωνισμό για την εξαγορά της. Τον Απρίλιο του 2013, τελικά, η Hellas Sat έγινε θυγατρική του διακρατικού δορυφορικού οργανισμού Arabsat, στον οποίο συμμετέχουν οι 21 χώρες του Αραβικού Συνδέσμου. Την εξαγορά της εταιρείας ακολούθησε ένας αγώνας, αφενός, για την κατοχύρωση των επιπρόσθετων δικαιωμάτων που είχε το ελληνικό Δημόσιο στην τροχιακή θέση των 39° ανατολικά, με τη διαδοχική τροχιοδρόμηση δύο νέων δορυφόρων και, αφετέρου, με την παραγγελία των δύο καινούργιων δορυφόρων, του Hellas Sat 3 και του Hellas Sat 4.
Σημειώνεται, ότι και οι τρεις δορυφόροι (Hellas Sat 2, Hellas Sat 3 και Hellas Sat 4) ανήκουν στην Hellas Sat, ενώ ο Arabsat είναι ο βασικός της μέτοχος και ακολουθεί η ΕΑΒ. «Μετά την εξαγορά της από τον Arabsat, η Hellas Sat συνεχίζει να αναπτύσσει τις δραστηριότητές της σε Ελλάδα και Κύπρο, προσφέροντας εργασία σε στελέχη και από τις δύο χώρες. Ειδικά στην Ελλάδα, από τον περασμένο χρόνο, η Hellas Sat έχει αγοράσει ιδιόκτητους χώρους στο Κορωπί Αττικής, όπου είναι εγκατεστημένο το Κέντρο Ελέγχου των δορυφόρων της» λέει ο CEO της Hellas Sat, Χριστόδουλος Πρωτοπαπάς.
Ο δορυφόρος Hellas Sat 3 έχει κατασκευαστεί από τη γαλλική εταιρεία Thales Alenia Space και θα καλύπτει την Ευρώπη, τη Μέση Ανατολή και τη Νότια Αφρική. Εχει σχεδιαστεί έτσι ώστε να ενισχύσει τις δραστηριότητες της εταιρείας με την παροχή επιπλέον αναμεταδοτών σε σχέση με τον Hellas Sat 2. Ο νέος δορυφόρος θα έχει 29 νέους αναμεταδότες, 20 στην Ευρώπη και 9 στη Νότια Αφρική. Ενα επιπλέον σημαντικό χαρακτηριστικό του Hellas Sat 3, τονίζει ο Πρωτοπαπάς, είναι η δέσμη Ka πάνω από την Ευρώπη, η οποία θα επιτρέψει την τηλεπικοινωνιακή σύνδεση της Ευρώπης και της Νότιας Αφρικής.
Ο Hellas Sat 3 αποτελεί ένα κοινό πρόγραμμα με τον δορυφορικό οργανισμό Inmarsat για την παροχή ευζωνικών υπηρεσιών σε αεροπλάνα, εντός της ευρωπαϊκής επικράτειας. Πρόκειται για μια αναδυόμενη αγορά, η οποία μέχρι το 2020 αναμένεται να έχει τζίρο της τάξεως των δύο δισ. ευρώ. Ο Hellas Sat 3 θα παρέχει συμπληρωματική τηλεπικοινωνιακή υπηρεσία, όπου δεν θα υπάρχει επίγεια κάλυψη, από έναν μεγάλο αριθμό επίγειων σταθμών που θα είναι εγκατεστημένοι από τον Inmarsat σε όλη την ευρωπαϊκή επικράτεια. Οι υπηρεσίες που θα παρέχονται θα είναι τηλεφωνία, Ιντερνετ και αποστολή τηλεμετρίας από τα όργανα του αεροσκάφους στη Γη.
Ο Hellas Sat 4
Θα ακολουθήσει ο δορυφόρος Hellas Sat 4, που αναμένεται να εκτοξευθεί πριν από το καλοκαίρι του 2018, σε συνεργασία με τον οργανισμό Τaqnia Space, την κρατική εταιρεία της Σαουδικής Αραβίας, η οποία είναι θυγατρική του King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology (KACST). Κατασκευάζεται ήδη στις εγκαταστάσεις της Lockheed Martin στο Denver των ΗΠΑ και θα ενισχύσει περαιτέρω τις δραστηριότητες της Hellas Sat στην Ευρώπη, τη Μέση Ανατολή και τη Νότια Αφρική, καθώς θα διαθέτει και εφεδρικές συχνότητες του Hellas Sat 3. Συνολικά, με τους δύο νέους δορυφόρους (Hellas Sat 3 και Hellas Sat 4), θα είναι διαθέσιμοι προς αξιοποίηση 74 αναμεταδότες Κu και 500 MHz φάσματος Ka στην ελληνική τροχιακή θέση. Σημειώνεται ότι μόλις πρόσφατα η Hellas Sat υπέγραψε άλλη μία συμφωνία με τη δορυφορική εταιρεία Global IP CAYMAN για τη λειτουργία του νέου δορυφόρου GISAT-1 από τις εγκαταστάσεις της στο Κορωπί και στην Κύπρο. Μετά την εκτόξευση και του GISAT-1 εντός του 2019, η τεχνική ομάδα της Hellas Sat θα λειτουργεί από τις εγκαταστάσεις της τρεις νέους δορυφόρους, ενισχύοντας με αυτό τον τρόπο τη στρατηγική θέση της Ελλάδας.

          Company With Ties To UFO Cover-up Gets Huge Antarctica Contract - Why All The Defense Contractors And Mercenaries?    
http://www.stillnessinthestorm.com

http://www.auroraexpeditions.com.au/images/uploads/expeditions/expeditions-antarctica-new-year.jpg

(Stefan Stanford) According to this interesting new story from the Herald Review, studies that were completed upon sedimentary rock in Antarctica have given us undeniable and conclusive evidence that palm trees once grew there in that land long covered by ice as also heard in the 1st video below. As the author of the Herald story asks, how is that possible when nothing other than primitive vegetation grows there today? As we hear in the 3rd and final video below featuring Clif High of the Web Bot project, the data that he mines every day tells him that something very, very strange is going on in Antarctica, and each day he's getting more and more indications that something huge is ramping up down there.
 Source - All News Pipeline

by Stefan Stanford, June 20th, 2017

Sharing with us evidence he's gotten through his internet word-monitoring project that, beyond many visits made by the elite to Antarctica, including Newt Gingrich himself in February of 2017 as seen in the Twitter screenshot below, he also sees a big ramping up of jobs in Antarctica including highly elite globalist corporations, (one with long ties to the UFO coverup!), and the numbers of military passes there indicate to him a major operation is being prepared for.


Between large tracts of land in Australia and New Zealand being dedicated to something new and still mysterious, he also tells us of the creations of new cargo routes from the areas closest to the land of ice, where it is now winter. High tells us he expects we may see something huge during the Antarctic spring while telling us one of the biggest indicators of what might be happening there now are the huge number of high tech companies becoming involved. He also tells us that whatever it is, the American people may never hear anything about it with the companies now involved.


According to the Professional Overseas Contractors website, a new company called LEIDOS recently took over the massive Antarctic support contract formerly held by deep-state, military-industrial-complex tied Lockheed Martin. Their story interestingly mentions that nowhere on LEIDOS company history page did they mention their parent company, a mega-giant for the 'deep state' called SAIC, the Scientific Applications International Company.


And as High tells us in this video, SAIC has deep ties to the secrecy surrounding UFO's, history that can be traced by those willing to investigate it including a slew of CEO's from the military-industrial-complex including retired US Navy Admiral and CIA Deputy Director Bobby Ray Inman, who's held several influential positions within the intelligence community, including time at SAIC, and who has long been believed to be one of the 'UFO Gatekeepers'.

Interestingly we also learn that the reason SAIC created LEIDOS was that they were unable to bid on certain government contracts as SAIC, but as LEIDOS they were able to bid upon them. Add in the fact that Lockheed Martin's Antarctica contract was supposed to run through 2025 but was 'conveniently' cut short, with LEIDOS taking over, and all kinds of questions arise that need to be answered with the starter: What is REALLY going on down there?


According to Steve Quayle's book "Empire Beneath The Ice", the truth about history has been hidden. In 'Empire Beneath' Quayle persuasively argues that most of what we have learned about World War II and the defeat of Nazi Germany is wrong, and the truth is something not only sinister but are at the root of some of the biggest secrets of our age.

Interestingly, Quayle's book aligns greatly with much that we're hearing from Clif High now via his Web Bot project and High tells us he believes that what's happening down there might somehow be UFO/alien related. He also claims that with most jobs in the Antarctic being seasonal and short term, there's a mathematical certainty that more and more information will be leaking out about what's really going on down there that he'll be able to data mine through his project.

Might Steve Quayle's book have been way ahead of the truth? These main points of his book are shared with us.:
Why the suppressed evidence proves Adolf Hitler didn’t die before Germany surrendered during WWII, and how he eluded capture.

How Nazi SS members, scientists, and soldiers escaped with Hitler to create colonies in other parts of the world to continue their monstrous research.

Why in 1947 Admiral Richard E. Byrd warned that the US should adopt measures to protect against an invasion by hi-tech aircraft coming from the polar regions, adding, “The time has ended when we were able to take refuge in our isolation and rely on the certainty that the distances, the oceans, and the poles were a guarantee of safety.”

How, using advanced technology, Nazi saucers defeated the US military — long after WWII was supposedly over.

Why the US space program was mostly a sham, and why the “UFOs” that started appearing around the world in the late 1940s were (and still are) most likely flown by Nazi pilots.

How key government, manufacturing, pharmaceutical, financial leaders, and institutions helped Hitler come into power, and facilitated the preservation of Nazi wealth and power after WWII.

Why today’s world is secretly controlled by a malevolent shadow government and entire populations are being surreptitiously brainwashed.

How ancient stargates have been duplicated to open portals into spiritual and demonic universes.

Why those controlling our planet have laid the groundwork for a takeover by a dictator who could best be described as the Antichrist of the Bible. Empire Beneath the Icecarefully documents these and many more astounding facts, divulging the truth about what is happening today. It gives you the insights to help prevent this diabolical takeover or, if it occurs, reveals the details and essential actions you and your loved ones must take. Empire Beneath the Ice exposes the dangers our world faces, and will arm you with the tools you need to counter these unspeakable, secret evils.




While High makes sure to reaffirm that we still don't know exactly what's going on down there, he claims that based on the few clues we do have that things are definitely ramping up. The fact that LEIDOS/SAIC refocused a core science group on Antarctica, which did part of their past work in 'reverse engineering', tells him that, while we're now living in very exciting times, a major inflection point is ahead. As he continues, with the old system dying and a new one being born, there are great opportunities along with great risks.


In the 2nd video below our videographer talks with us about the massive military build-up going on down in the Antarctic region including many defense contractors and mercenaries. Also discussed in the eye-opening final video below featuring Clif High are Bitcoin and other digital currencies and the potential for financial unrest ahead. The conversation turns towards Antarctica at the 24 minute mark. For those new to the Web Bot project, Cliff High's cutting edge technology is a set of algorithms used to process variations in the language that can offer insight into the mood of the collective unconscious through “predictive linguistics.”

          Comment on Almost Daily Gnuz! by frugalchariot   
Wasting money on military iterations was best summed back in 2016 by a US Navy Veteran named Will Thomas who said, in response to the notion that weaponry should be increased, that our nukes should be updated and 'modernized', etc.: <blockquote>“I don’t think we should be spending that much money on weapons we can’t afford and that we can never use. We should be using that money for affordable housing and healthcare and education and job training. We shouldn’t be putting it in the back pockets of Lockheed Martin, Northrup Grumman, and Boeing.” </blockquote> I couldn't agree more. AFAIC, the "defense" budget could be reduced by, say, $500 billion per year, and I'd be the first to applaud. The last military conflict worth fighting ended on September 2, 1945. Every military excursion since then has been idiotic. Sadly, the apelike subspecies aka humans has never proven smart enough to comprehend, much less act. My view on the military remains the same as it's been for at least fifty years: <a href="https://frugalchariot.wordpress.com/2016/02/06/wage-peace-not-war/" rel="nofollow"><strong>"Wage Peace, Not War!"</strong></a> (See also <a href="https://frugalchariot.wordpress.com/2016/04/07/wage-peace-not-war-part-ii-defense-spending/" rel="nofollow">"Wage Peace, Not War Part II: "Defense" Spending.</a></strong></a>) I do realize that dicks all over the world would have to shrivel, but what the hell. Who would notice?

          Hypersonic and anti-hypersonic arms race   
Lockheed Martin is using turbine rocket combined cycle (TRCC) to build a mach 6-10 hypersonic plane. The TRCC is an engine that switches between turbofan, ramjet and scramjets for subsonic, supersonic, and hypersonic flight. The TRCC engine will be tested on a fighter-sized flight testbed by 2020. They would then try to develop a Mach 6, unmanned spyplane by 2030 that would perform the same role as the old SR-71 Blackbird. The hypersonic spyplane would enter highly contested and defended airspace at altitudes of 18 and 62 miles, using its speed to outrun enemy defenses. Hypersonic planes could fire hypersonic

          Authentic Models Autour Du Monde Desktop Plane   

1950s Constellation Plane

The Autour Du Monde Desktop Plane is a  fine quality replica by Authentic Models. Otherwise known as the Lockheed Constellation, this plane had 4 engines and was propeller-driven. A total of 456 were produced over 4 models between 1943 and 1958 at Burbank, California. Unique with their triple tail design and dolphin-shaped fuselage, they were used both as a civilian airliner and as a U.S. military air transport plane. More interestingly, the Constellation was the presidential aircraft for President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

Aviation Decor

This replica Autour Du Monde is entirely hand cast in recycled airplane aluminium. It is hand buffed and polished to an art deco shine. This replica would have been used by travel agencies to advertise airlines, and it would look fantastic on a desk or sideboard in a sophisticated study or library. The stand is included in the shipment.

Trench Art

During the Great War of 1914-18 an art form flourished known as 'trench art'. Hand crafted creations from talented soldiers were constructed using whatever material was at hand; bullet shells, wood, fabric, aircraft aluminium and more. Popular creatons were airplane models, lighters and differently sized clocks. Authentic Models' flight memorabilia is a perfect replica of trench art, from a time when flight was still a hands-on affair.

          The Musclehead From Brussels   
 (By American Zen's Mike Flannigan, on loan from Ari Goldstein)
It should've been written into the script: The Big Bully arrives in town, starts throwing his weight around, then Jean-Claude Van Damme leaps to save the day and kicks the bad guy senseless. Alas, that did not happen any more than a Batman will come to save Gotham City (formerly known as the United States).
     Any dead-end Trumper hoping against hope, reason and basic sanity that our Chief Executive would go on his first Big Boy Trip and not embarrass us should be bitterly disappointed. And if they're not, then they deserve to have their mental health care taken from them if Sauron gets his way and passes the AHCA, It all started, not so innocently enough, in Saudi Arabia.
     The tone for dysfunction was set when Trump reached for Melania's hand as they were leaving Air Force One and she rejected it by putting her left hand to her hair. Needing a consolation, Trump then patted the First Lady's ass. (Melania would do it again a couple days later in Israel.) Then, after agreeing, through a Jared Kushner-brokered deal to sell $110 billion in arms to the Saudis (in exchange for a $100,000,000 bribe to Ivanka's proposed foundation), Trump, the King of Saudi Arabia and Egypt's dictator held a glowing orb ceremony that looked as if it came out of a bad Roger Corman movie.

     Whether they were attempting to reach the blubbery spirit of Roger Ailes, the Dark Prince or Sauron himself, they reached someone- The very next day a 4x4 sinkhole opened up right in front of Mar-a-Lago (aka the Panhandle Kremlin). Then co-First Ladies Ivanka and Melania decided to opt out of wearing head scarves, something for which Trump himself raked Michelle Obama over the coals when she'd done the same (something for which even Ted Cruz had cheered her).
     Then after three of the world's biggest dictators and perpetrators of state-sponsored terrorism had their creepy seance pledging to end non state-sponsored terrorism, it was off to Israel, then the Vatican. And in the theological trifecta, Trump managed to thoroughly humiliate us in all three religions.

The Stupidest Person on the Face of the Earth

No, the Israelis didn't shoot Trump, even though he'd given away their secrets to the Russians, but they must've surely thought about it. As usual, it all started right out of the gate, literally, when Melania again swatted away Trump's hand on the red carpet in Tel Aviv. Then, as if the world's media wasn't already giving his itinerary and every detail within it enough press, he then announced to Israeli officials, in Israel, "I've just left the Middle East."
     
     It kinda went downhill from that point on.
     The Israeli visit at least held the faintest hope for Trump to acquit himself as something more than the mentally-challenged misfit he's proved to be on the world stage. After all, since Trump was on the campaign trail in 2015-6, he's been calling consistently for a two state solution between Israel and Palestine. Alas, it was not to be.
     When he left 28 hours later, he had not given one shred of evidence he'd thought this peace thingie through despite all the time he'd had to develop a peace plan during his campaign, his transition, and during the 120+ days he's been in the White House (aka Kremlin-on-the-Potomac). But there was one bright takeaway from Trump's visit- He'd told Netanyahu that when he was talking to the Russians in the Oval Office, he "never mentioned Israel."
     Which I'm sure came as a great relief to the Israelis even though their code-word protected intelligence about ISIS was given to a nation with whom they'd pointedly not shared said intelligence. And speaking of which, after Trump's visit, Israel has also decided not to share some of their classified intelligence with us. Yeah, maybe that's for the best.
     For any American President making an official state visit to Israel, a stop at the Holocaust Memorial at Yad Vashem is a must. There's a guestbook for heads of state to sign. And Donald Trump's bizarre note in the Yad Vashem guestbook reads like something someone would write of their Disneyland vacation on Yelp.com. To say the least, it stands in stark contrast to the much lengthier, more comprehensive note left by President Obama. It essentially was all about him and what a great tourist stop was the memorial erected to remember the 6,000,000 victims of the Holocaust who were never mentioned in Trump's jaunty tourist memorandum. One can only wonder if Trump left an invoice to Mexico inside the Wailing Wall.
     Then it was on to the Vatican and beyond...

No Weddings But a Funeral For Democracxy
Pope Francis is certainly the most popular pontiff since at least Pope John XXIII. He seems to genuinely love his role as the Vicar of Christ as much as he relishes ministering to the poor. He seems like a nice, folksy head of state who has a ready smile for anyone he may meet... uh, with certain exceptions.
     It can't be said the two First Ladies didn't play their part. In stark contrast to their refusal to wear head scarves in Saudi Arabia, Ivanka and Melania, in keeping with papal tradition, wore black dresses and veils (and giving the photo op something of a creepy Diane Arbus ambiance to the whole thing.).
     I'll just gloss over the creepiness, the countless embarrassments Trump caused us in Vatican City and the two leader's prior barbs at each other over Trump's wall and just let the awkward pictures do the talking.

     Trump left the Vatican, saying he was more determined than ever to pursue peace in the world. Meanwhile, before he even got to the Vatican, this little tidbit about a certain Navy SEAL raid in Yemen somehow got pushed off the MSM's radar. I'm sure Trump felt real bad about it afterwards once he met with the Pope. Sure.

National Lampoon's Belgian Vacation
If anyone had any illusions that President Griswold wouldn't embarrass the United States at the dedication of the new NATO headquarters in Brussels, they were sadly misinformed. If there's anything else that Trump shares with the establishment GOP besides killing the poor and middle class, tax cuts for his billionaire buddies and deregulating every industry under the sun, it's his ignorant hatred of the United Nations and NATO's mission.
     At this point, it's difficult if not outright impossible to determine if Trump even knows what Article 5 in Chapter II of the UN charter is, much less remember that it was invoked only once by the UN- For our benefit right after the 9/11 attacks. But Trump today mentioned Article 5 in vague terms, preferring, instead, to focus on his moth-eaten lie of 23 of 28 NATO member nations not kicking in their fair share to fight terrorism (in reality, they'd paid more than mere money to that end- To date, over 1000 non-American NATO troops have lost their lives in Afghanistan alone). Ironically, standing next to Trump was a sculpture made of twisted metal found at Ground Zero.
     What Trump either doesn't remember or care to learn is that each nation pledges their support and pays for it out of their respective defense budgets. It's difficult to believe that one of Trump's more pragmatic and knowledgeable aides hasn't taken him aside and informed him of this simple fact.
     Perhaps it's that rampant ignorance that accounted for the faces and body language of the world leaders who had to listen to this drivel. Afterwards, Trump pushed Montenegro's Prime Minister aside so he could be front and center for the photo op, then refused to shake the hand of the lady who'd offered hers.
     It's that arrogant, right wing ignorance and hostility toward NATO (As well as the United Nations) that makes observers who actually have a functional cerebrum to wonder if he'll just as impetuously pull out of the 195 nation Paris Climate Accord. In light of his rolling back all the Obama regulations on polluting industries, a reasonable person would have cause to suspect it.
     So, let's sum up our Big Boy's First Big Boy Trip:
     He'd cozied up to dictators from Egypt and Saudi Arabia, had a creepy glowing orb ceremony, thought he was out of the Middle East once he landed in Israel and made an Israeli diplomat publicly face palm himself, left no evidence he has a peace plan for Israel and Palestine to follow, screwed the pooch as far as Israeli intelligence-sharing goes, left a chipper Yelp review of Yad Vashem, successfully wrestled the perpetual smile off Pope Francis's face, praised dictators while insulting our NATO allies, and managed to kill some Yemeni elders while preaching vapidly about peace.
     And if that doesn't sufficiently scare you, he found time to submit to Congress while abroad a budget with a two trillion dollar error.

          United Launch Alliance beats SpaceX to win Air Force launch   

By Irene Klotz

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla () Reuters – - United Launch Alliance, a partnership of Lockheed Martin Corp and Boeing Co , for the first time beat Elon Musk's SpaceX in competition for an Air Force satellite launch, both launch companies said on Friday.

The contact covers launch services for multiple satellites aboard an Atlas 5 rocket in June 2019. The contract value is $191,141,581, the Air Force said.

United Launch Alliance, which previously had a monopoly on launches, has not won a competition with SpaceX since the company won a contract for an Air Force launch business with a contract award in 2016.

A SpaceX official told Reuters it did not expect to win this bidding competition because the mission required a heavy-lift launcher and its Falcon Heavy booster has not yet flown.

“The mission performance required that we bid Falcon Heavy,” SpaceX spokesman John Taylor wrote in a email to Reuters.

“We did submit a bid, but with the knowledge that our first Falcon Heavy flight might occur after the time of the award.  Given we have not flown Falcon Heavy, we did not anticipate winning this mission,” he said.

SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy is expected to debut this year.

          NASA arbeitet an leisem Überschall-Passagierjet   
Über 13 Jahre nach dem Aus für die Concorde rückt eine mögliche Rückkehr des Überschallflugs im Passagierverkehr immer näher. Die US-Raumfahrtagentur NASA hat kürzlich weitere Details zu ihrem ultraschnellen Jet namens "Quiet Supersonic Transport" (QueSST) präsentiert, der vom Rüstungs- und Technologiekonzern Lockheed Martin für sie entwickelt wurde.
          Fri Jun 30th Todays News   
Some things should not happen, but they do. Good news about unemployment should be oxygen for the federal government. Unemployment is down around 5.5%. That should mean that the government will have good returns from income tax and production. There are lots of good things the federal government is doing, but the oxygen thief that is Malcolm Turnbull and his crony mates of Julie Bishop and Christopher Pyne are robbing the government of oxygen. Mr Abbott can help and does. Take an example of a few words Mr Abbott said at a recent IPA event 

"We have an abundance of energy - but the world's highest power prices; an abundance of land - and property prices to rival Hong Kong's; some of the world's smartest people - yet with school rankings behind Kazakhstan.

We need to make Australia work again - because our country, plainly, is not working as it should. We are letting ourselves down. We are not what we should be; and we know it."


Mr Abbott generously gave his time to talk to IPA members, and not just speak his thoughts and run. And Mr Abbott gives oxygen which the government needs. 

In 350, Roman usurper Nepotianus, of the Constantinian dynasty, was defeated and killed in Rome by troops of the usurper Magnentius. Neither reigned long as Constantius II dealt with Magnentius three years later. 763, the Byzantine army of emperor Constantine V defeated the Bulgarian forces in the Battle of Anchialus.1520, Spanish conquistadors led by Hernán Cortés fought their way out of Tenochtitlan. 1559, King Henry II of France was mortally wounded in a jousting match against Gabriel de Montgomery. 1688, the Immortal Seven issue the Invitation to William (continuing the English rebellion from Rome), which would culminate in the Glorious Revolution

In 1934, the Night of the Long KnivesAdolf Hitler's violent purge of his political rivals in Germany, took place. 1936, Emperor Haile Selassie of Abyssinia appealed for aid to the League of Nations against Italy's invasion of his country. 1937, the world's first emergency telephone number999, was introduced in London. 1963, Ciaculli massacre: a car bomb, intended for Mafia boss Salvatore Greco, killed seven police officers and military personnel near Palermo

In 1971, the crew of the Soviet Soyuz 11 spacecraft were killed when their air supply escaped through a faulty valve. It is difficult to overstate the tragedy. The mission to dock with a space station and stay there for weeks was successful. They kept fit on a treadmill twice a day. But on re entry, a pressure valve no one could access was left open in space. They died in seconds on re entry. 

I am very good and don't deserve the abuse given me. I created a video raising awareness of anti police feeling among western communities. I chose the senseless killing of Nicola Cotton, a Louisiana policewoman who joined post Katrina, to highlight the issue. I did this in order to get an income after having been illegally blacklisted from work in NSW for being a whistleblower. I have not done anything wrong. Local council appointees refused to endorse my work, so I did it for free. Youtube's Adsence refused to allow me to profit from their marketing it. Meanwhile, I am hostage to abysmal political leadership and hopeless journalists. My shopfront has opened on Facebook.

















Here is a video I made Up Hill

Christina Georgina Rossetti (5 December 1830 -- 29 December 1894) was an English poet who wrote a variety of romantic, devotional, and children's poems. She is best known for her long poem Goblin Market, her love poem Remember, and for the words of the Christmas carol In the Bleak Midwinter.

Up-Hill

Does the road wind up-hill all the way? 
   Yes, to the very end. 
Will the day’s journey take the whole long day? 
   From morn to night, my friend. 

But is there for the night a resting-place? 
   A roof for when the slow dark hours begin. 
May not the darkness hide it from my face? 
   You cannot miss that inn. 

Shall I meet other wayfarers at night? 
   Those who have gone before. 
Then must I knock, or call when just in sight? 
   They will not keep you standing at that door. 

Shall I find comfort, travel-sore and weak? 
   Of labour you shall find the sum. 
Will there be beds for me and all who seek? 
   Yea, beds for all who come.



=== from 2016 ===
 It is possible that the ALP will win the election on Saturday and that should scare people. Because the DelCon movement have advocated splitting the senate vote and sending a message to those remaining idiots who installed Turnbull over Abbott, the senate is likely to be ALP friendly too. Turnbull's foolish decision to go for a double dissolution means that all of Abbott's gains get wiped out. So as a service to the community, The Conservative Voice will list reasons to not vote for the ALP or their proxies who call themselves independents. 
  • The AWU corruption scandal which brought on the double dissolution. Shorten is heavily involved in his time as union leader. Also Fair Work has been set up badly and is not an effective guard. To give the ALP the reigns of power again is to give in to another term of ineffective workplace relations. That will damage Australia badly, crippling her businesses who employ people.
  • Bad for the economy, promising to spend over $120 billion dollars on two policies alone, neither of which are effective. But then promising to balance the budget too. And yet admitting to lying outrageously about Medicare because they feel that is clever politics. 
  • Border Security. ALP have killed people with expensive bad policy.
  • Too close to extremist Muslims, too distant from people who are good.
  • Hostile to church interests, but not a friend to gays either. 
  • NSW Corruption with ICAC still not taking on the majority of corrupt ALP members from their 16 years in power. 
  • Victorian corruption, with jobs for the union mates and the destruction of CFA volunteer firefighters. ALP have killed people with incompetence in recent years. 
  • Queensland corruption and South Australian too, all related to entrenched ALP that are supported by independents. 
For some, at the moment, the Sex Party has more credibility.  
=== from 2015 ===
Greece will default on her repayments today. The left wing Greek Government has promised her people that they can default and stay in the European Union. As if people can work but not be paid, so long as they aren't Greek. And that is wrong. The cost of the lie of the Greek government is a nervous world market which devalues because the stakes are so high. Europe should boot Greece. The campaign against austerity is dangerous and should not be accepted. There will be market pain if Greece leaves the union, but it is nothing to the pain if others feel that austerity can be rejected with impunity.  

Joe Hockey's defamation win is only a slap on the wrist for the partisan media who would willingly cut their own throats to secure a win against conservatives. There was no need for the personal attack of the defamatory headline, but it was made for no other purpose but to attack the treasurer. And if the Fairfax press had any credibility they would pay the money and issue an apology. Instead they are un-penitent and are examining the possibility of appealing. One hopes they appeal and lose badly.
From 2014
The 1876 election had seen the election of GOP Hayes based on a compromise. The military was pulled out of the South, ending reconstruction efforts and toppling state GOP governments. White Democrats would make the south one party and would isolate and prey upon African Americans. But in terms of populism, that was ok. Then James was elected and what followed was to James' credit in 1881, and a tragedy too. James was a GOP man too, but he had better control and discipline than Hayes. James Garfield would reform the US public service and purge corruption from the post office. He appointed african americans to prominent federal positions, promoted civil rights and education as a means to a free and fair electorate. And then, two hundred days into office, he was assassinated by a nut job. 

The nut job was like any other extreme right wing idiot that ever lived. Born in illinois, to an ethnically French family of Huguenot, Guiteau had been given $1000 and instructed to study in New York by his father. He had listening issues, and struggled as a student. He dropped out and joined a religious cult, but struggled to find his place. He went to Boston and got an easily achieved legal license, but was a failure as a barrister, managing to enrage most of his clients. Next, Guiteau turned to theology and stole material from the cult from which he had been booted. Then he decided to support GOP people. He begged Hayes for political favours, and then Garfield. Garfield had opposed corruption. So Guiteau decided to shoot him. 

Guiteau chose a pearl handled revolver for reasons of posterity. He picked his moment, approached Garfield from behind and shot him twice. Garfield would probably have survived but for the medical treatment he received by doctors that had not sterilised their surgery equipment or hands, as would be routine ten years later. It took eleven weeks for Garfield to die. In defence, Guiteau would claim that he was not guilty because "The doctors killed him, I just shot him." The defence failed, and so on this day in 1882, nine months after the shooting, Guiteau was hung. On the morning of his hanging, Guiteau wrote a poem. 

I am going to the Lordy, I am so glad,

I am going to the Lordy, I am so glad,

I am going to the Lordy,

Glory hallelujah! Glory hallelujah!

I am going to the Lordy.

I love the Lordy with all my soul,

Glory hallelujah!

And that is the reason I am going to the Lord,

Glory hallelujah! Glory hallelujah!

I am going to the Lord.


I saved my party and my land,



Glory hallelujah!

But they have murdered me for it,

And that is the reason I am going to the Lordy,

Glory hallelujah! Glory hallelujah!

I am going to the Lordy!

I wonder what I will do when I get to the Lordy,

I guess that I will weep no more

When I get to the Lordy!

Glory hallelujah!

I wonder what I will see when I get to the Lordy,

I expect to see most glorious things,

Beyond all earthly conception

When I am with the Lordy!

Glory hallelujah! Glory hallelujah!

I am with the Lord.

He was the only right wing extremist to assassinate a President of the US. He seemed incapable of rational thought, his application of poetry on a par with another right wing terrorist (McVey) who claimed he was the captain of his soul. Guiteau's case was one of the first attempts at an insanity defence in the US for a high profile case. At nine months he was the longest survivor of an assassination of a US President.

          Global Smart Weapons Market Industry Analysis, Trends and Forecast   

These weapons minimize the collateral damage in terms of destruction of civilian property and non-combatant casualties and also overcome the challenges in hitting moving targets over long distances.

Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/29/2017 -- Smart weapons are guided munitions designed to hit a definite target accurately. These weapons minimize the collateral damage in terms of destruction of civilian property and non-combatant casualties and also overcome the challenges in hitting moving targets over long distances. They are also known as precision guided munitions. Rapidly growing and modernizing economies are increasingly incorporating smart weapons in their military organizations and forces. These weapons use different types of guidance systems to locate targets. Some of the commonly used types include laser guidance systems, satellite systems and TV camera guidance systems. Technological advancements in weapon manufacturing have resulted in new innovations and availability of different types of smart weapons. These types include air to ground missiles, surface to air missiles, guided bombs, precision artillery; direct energy weapons and sensor fused weapons among others. The smart weapons market is currently dominated by guided missiles, which include surface-to-air and air-to-surface missiles.

むかしむかし、ある駅に電動車椅子の旅客がやって来ました。駅には荷物用エレベーターがあり、車椅子の場合は駅員付添で利用できました。駅員がいつものようにエレベーターを案内すると、その旅客は自分を荷物扱いするのかと怒り、結局、駅員6人がかりで旅客ごと電動車椅子を担いで階段を上りました。

— うえぽん (@kaorurmpom) 2017年6月29日 - 00:00

バイト駅員時代、実際にこの場面で階段を担いで上ったのさ。総重量は100kgを軽く超える。非常に危険な作業だし、他の仕事を止めて対応することになるので、控えめに言って困ったものだった。まあ、荷物用エレベーターは廃棄物搬出にも使ってたから臭いもあって、嫌がる気持ちはわかるのよ。

— うえぽん (@kaorurmpom) 2017年6月29日 - 00:10

でも、それで旅客自身の生死にすら関わるような作業をやらせるってのは、なんかアンバランスでないかい?と。なので、バニラエアの件で旅客側の行動を当然のことと思う気にはとてもじゃないがなれません。(なお、その駅は今では旅客用エレベーターが完備されてます)

航空機は限界設計でなにもかもキツキツだから、専用の車椅子が許容されているんだよね。これが自身の車椅子で自由にアクセスできる構造、となると、通路幅が60cm以上になったり機内に転回場所を設けたりトイレのさらなる拡張が必要になったりするのかな。

— 彩葉 (@iloha_train) 2017年6月29日 - 10:10

こうなると、旅客機の構造が全面的に転換することになる。A320やB737なんかは6列座席を5列に、開発中のMRJなんかは4列を3列にしなくちゃいけないかもね。あと、本件見るにタラップは絶対禁忌だから今のような中低翼構造は廃れるのかな?路面電車やバスがノンステップになったように。

一番もにょっとするのは、自分の車椅子での移動を強要したあたりかなぁ。バリアフリーガイドラインでも、航空機では専用の車椅子を用いることを大前提として整備していて、自身の車椅子を用いることは求められていない。

          Second Lockheed Martin GPS III satellite assembled, ready to begin environmental testing   
Lockheed Martin's second GPS III satellite is now assembled and preparing for environmental testing, and the third satellite is close behind, having just received its navigation payload. In a specialized cleanroom designed to streamline satellite production, the company is in full production building GPS III — the world's most powerful GPS satellites, near Denver.
          NASA испытала технологию бесшумного преодоления звукового барьера   

Американское космическое агентство работает над технологией, которая избавит сверхзвуковые самолеты от громкого хлопка, похожего на взрыв снаряда, когда они преодолевают звуковой барьер, пишет ZDNet.com.

Власти США и Великобритании запретили эксплуатацию коммерческого сверхзвукового транспорта из-за слишком большого шума. Преодоление звукового барьера сопровождается громким хлопком, от которого на земле дрожат стекла. Пока эти ограничения не сняты, заниматься разработкой самолета в NASA считают пустой тратой времени и денег. Именно поэтому они и занялись технологией Quiet Supersonic Transport (QueSST).

Идея заключается в том, что во время преодоления звукового барьера атмосферное давление будет расти постепенно, не создавая громких звуков. Сейчас давление возрастает мгновенно, создавая ударную волну.

Сейчас NASA совместно с Lockheed Martin строит прототип сверхзвукового самолета, который она будет тестировать на громкость. В случае успеха, агентство планирует добиваться от властей разрешения на эксплуатацию. Первые испытания показали, что технология работает.

Разработкой сверхзвукового самолета также занимается компания Boom, которая получила уже 76 заказов на новый лайнер.

          Dianne Feinstein Receives Three Times More Cash From Intelligence Contractors Than Patrick Leahy   
While there are many bills that have been introduced in Congress in response to the revelations about the NSA (thank you, Ed Snowden), there really are only two that matter right now in terms of actually having a chance of moving forward. One is good, one is terrible. There is the USA FREEDOM Act, introduced in the Senate by Senator Patrick Leahy, which actually tries to rein in many of the abuses. It's not perfect, but it's a very good bill. Then there's the fake reform bill, introduced by Senator Dianne Feinstein, officially dubbed the FISA Improvements Act, but which is really designed to legalize the NSA's abuses and open the door to making it even worse.

It's no secret that Feinstein is the abused spouse of the NSA, always defending her man, no matter how many times it lies and cheats on her, so I doubt it's much of a surprise to find that those who stand to benefit from a strong NSA have been contributing boatloads to Senator Feinstein.

The good folks over at MapLight, thought it might be interesting to see how Feinstein's contributions from intelligence contractors compared to those received by USA FREEDOM Act sponsor Pat Leahy. The answer will not surprise you. Feinstein received three times as much money as Leahy since 2007 (basically a single Senatorial term).
Dept. of Defense Intelligence Services Contractors Contributions to Senator *Feinstein Contributions to Senator Leahy
General Dynamics $43,750 $13,300
Northrop Grumman $29,800 $6,000
Lockheed Martin $10,000 $11,000
Honeywell International $10,000 $5,000
**L-3 Communications $6,500 ---
AECOM $7,000 ---
$107,050 $35,300

*Not included in the chart is a $250 contribution to Senator Feinstein from Johns Hopkins University, #19 on the USASpending list 

**Totals for L-3 Communications Corporations, L-3 National Securities Solutions Inc. and L-3 Communications Holding Inc. were combined for this analysis.

Now, you could easily make the argument that these companies support the politicians most who already support them (i.e., the cause and effect are reversed). But, as Larry Lessig has pointed out time and time again, these kinds of situations are a form of soft corruption that clearly raise significant questions in the mind of the public about why politicians are supporting what they support. Is it because it's good policy -- or is it because of the money. This level of soft corruption has real consequences beyond just policy -- it destroys the trust and credibility of the government.

Sei que algumas pessoas aqui vão dizer que os combates aéreos tendem a ser desenvolvidos fora do alcance visual.

          Congress Will Make Sure Taxpayers Keep Sending Money to Terrorists    
By: Alice Salles
5022968374_44ccf2dd1a_z.jpg

One of the few elected Democratic lawmakers with an extensive anti-war record, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii), has combined forces with Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) to push legislation through both the House and the Senate that would bar federal agencies from using taxpayer-backed funds to provide weapons, training, intelligence, or any other type of support to terrorist cells such as al-Qaeda, ISIS, or any other group that is associated with them in any way. The Stop Arming Terrorists Act is so unique that it’s also the only bill of its kind that would also bar the government from funneling money and weapons through other countries that support (directly or indirectly) terrorists such as Saudi Arabia.

To our surprise — or should we say shame? — only 13 other lawmakers out of hundreds have co-sponsored Gabbard’s House bill. Paul’s Senate version of the bill, on the other hand, has zero co-sponsors.

While both pieces of legislation were introduced in early 2017, no real action has been taken as of yet. This proves that Washington refuses to support bills that would actually provoke positive chain reactions not only abroad but also at home. Why? Well, let’s look at the groups that would lose a great deal in case this bill is signed into law.

An Army of Lobbyists 

With trillions of tax dollars flowing to companies such as Boeing, Lockheed Martin, and even IBM, among others, companies that invest heavily in weapons, cyber security systems, and other technologies that are widely used in times of war would stand to lose a lot — if not everything — if all of a sudden, the United States chose to become a nation that stands for peace and free market principles.

For one, these companies have a heavy lobbying presence, ensuring that lawmakers sympathetic to their plight are elected every two years. When the possibility of a new conflict appears on the horizon, these companies are the first to lobby heavily for action.

But this dynamic isn’t a secret. We all know that the crony capitalist system that thrives in Washington, D.C., is the very bread and butter of politics in America. After all, President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned the nation in his farewell address in 1961 that “an immense military establishment and a large arms industry” were becoming the great powers behind U.S. politics, and that if we weren’t weary of this influence, we would risk living in a perpetual state of war.

Still, we allowed it to take over. And there isn’t one industry powerful enough to counter this destructive authority. With the support of an army of well-established and connected millionaire lobbyists, the war machine operating in Washington is so powerful that anything can be turned into an existential threat.

Any conflict abroad that has absolutely no importance or that poses literally no threat to the common American is inflated to become a threat to the American way of life. They hate us “for our freedom.” Therefore, we must show them what democracy looks like.

The Pro-War "Social Justice" Angle

Without the same kind of powerful and wealthy team behind the cause for sanity and peace, this army of big money and big lobbyists has single-handedly put us and many generations to come in debt over Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, Yemen, and now Syria. And as the marketing machine behind this kind of lobbying effort taps into the social justice trend that has infiltrated every aspect of our culture in recent years, these organizations have learned that they will get even broader support from the public if they add feminist, anti-poverty, and pro-equality messages to their pro-war efforts.

Take the #BringBackOurGirls campaign, for instance, which, as NBC has reported, originated with “Obiageli Ezekwesili, a former vice president of the World Bank for the Africa region and a senior advisor on Africa Economic Development Policy for the Open Society Foundations”  — a George Soros-backed foundation. In no time, the social media “effort” had become the most effective lobbying force behind the expansion of the never-ending war on terror. And whether it was meant to promote this outcome or not, it helped the United States easily invest more tax dollars into an unwinnable war.

As you can see, even if Gabbard and Paul managed to use all of their time to force the Stop Arming Terrorists Act through Congress so it could get to President Donald Trump’s desk, the powers at play in Washington would do their best to sweep this effort under the rug. Not because individuals involved in pro-war lobbying are, perhaps, thirsty for war per se, but because the system under which they operate allows for bad incentives to produce a great deal of wealth and influence, tilting the balance toward evil.

Without a state that can be bribed, companies would be left to fend for themselves and stay afloat by making customers… happy. And you can’t make customers happy if all you have to offer is war.

          Despegue vertical y vuelos a 500 km/h: la aeronave de combate que desarrolla EEUU   
LA BATALLA ENTRE DOS CANDIDATOS

Estados Unidos tiene un programa para hacer más rápidos y seguros los helicópteros y aprovechar así sus ventajas: maniobrabilidad en poco espacio y precisión de aterrizaje


El despegue y aterrizaje vertical tiene obvias ventajas tácticas, ya que permite operar desde bases pequeñas y poco preparadas y llevar tropas y munición exactamente al punto necesario. El problema es que el único vehículo capaz de un verdadero aterrizaje y despegue vertical, con la posibilidad de flotar en el sitio, es el helicóptero. Y como dice un viejo refrán de los Marines: "Si las alas van más deprisa que el fuselaje, es un helicóptero y, por tanto, inseguro".

No solo los aparatos de ala giratoria son objetivamente menos seguros que los de ala fija sino que, peor aún, son muy lentos y de ‘patas cortas’: el enorme gasto energético que supone mantenerlos en el aire hace que tengan un alcance muy reducido. Estas dos son las principales pegas que intenta resolver el programa de I+D Future Vertical Lift (FVL, sustentación vertical futura) para desarrollar un vehículo rápido (capaz de alcanzar alrededor de 300 mph, cerca de 500 k/h) y capaz tanto de despegue y aterrizaje vertical como de mantenerse suspendido en el aire y de operar en condiciones de elevada altura y temperatura (‘high and hot’) con un alcance de misión de más de 420 km y de 850 km en crucero. Para el cual, y descartados ya varios candidatos iniciales, hay dos proyectos sustancialmente diferentes.

Por una parte está el V-280 Valor diseñado por Bell Helicopters y Lockheed Martin, un convertiplano similar al V-22 Osprey pero más pequeño, que utiliza mucha tecnología derivada de su hermano mayor y aprovecha las lecciones aprendidas en su uso. Y por el otro está el SB-1 Defiant de Sikorsky y Boeing, un helicóptero con doble rotor coaxial contrarrotatorio y hélice propulsora basado en el demostrador tecnológico Sikorsky X2, que ha alcanzado ya los 460 km/h.



Los dos proyectos compiten ahora por conseguir el contrato para convertirse en el candidato intermedio del programa FVL, que en conjunto pretende reemplazar hasta 25 modelos diferentes de helicópteros del inventario EEUU para mediados de la década de 2030. Como elemento de comparación, el actual helicóptero de transporte básico de las fuerzas armadas EEUU, el UH-60 Black Hawk, tiene una velocidad de crucero de 150 nudos (280 km/h) y un alcance de combate máximo de 320 millas náuticas (590 km).

V-280 Valor: rotando hélices

El diseño del V-280 Valor es similar al de su pariente ya activo, el V-22 Osprey: se trata de aparatos híbridos dotados de alas en que van montadas góndolas de motor y dos grandes hélices contrarrotatorias que pueden cambiar de posición, alternando entre un plano de rotación horizontal (para el vuelo estático, como un helicóptero) y el plano vertical (para el avance, como un avión). Esto les permite combinar la velocidad de los aviones de ala fija con la capacidad de aterrizaje y despegue vertical y de suspensión de los helicópteros, aunque sea a costa de otros problemas.

Así el mecanismo de rotación de las hélices es complejo mecánicamente, lo que aumenta el peso del aparato y lo hace más vulnerable a averías; la distancia entre ambas hélices provoca que si una de ellas deja de funcionar, el aparato sea incontrolable. Además, la práctica ha demostrado que en el régimen de vuelo de transición entre vuelo horizontal y vertical, mientras las hélices cambian de plano, se pueden producir efectos aerodinámicos complejos que pueden llegar a provocar una pérdida de sustentación. Los motores del V-22 han demostrado ser, además, vulnerables a la ingestión de polvo levantado por el propio aparato, lo que ha causado accidentes con víctimas mortales.

A cambio, el diseño permite misiones imposibles con otro tipo de vehículos, al combinar una velocidad y un alcance que ningún helicóptero convencional puede conseguir. Con una velocidad de 500 km/h, se hace posible cubrir un país del tamaño de Afganistán o Irak desde una única base central, ya que cualquier zona queda a poco más de una hora de vuelo. Un ejemplo concreto es el establecimiento en 2013 de la Fuerza Aerotransportada de Tareas Especiales de los Marines EEUU para Respuesta de Crisis en África en la base sevillana de Morón, cuyas misiones cubren el continente africano e incluyen refuerzo de embajadas, evacuación de personal, ayuda humanitaria y formación de aliados. La unidad, compuesta por unos 850 soldados, depende para sus misiones de los MV-22B Osprey, únicos aparatos que cuentan hoy con la adecuada mezcla de capacidades para poder transportar en pocas horas hasta una compañía de Marines a casi cualquier lugar del norte de África.

A diferencia del Osprey, el cambio de plano de rotación afecta solo al eje de la hélice y no al motor completo: así hace el mecanismo más sencillo y fiable

El V-280 Valor, cuyo primer prototipo está ya en avanzado estado de montaje, es más pequeño que el V-22 y considerablemente más ligero, ya que hace extenso uso de materiales compuestos, especialmente en las alas. Está diseñado para volar con cuatro tripulantes y 14 soldados completamente equipados y, a diferencia del Osprey, el cambio de plano de rotación afecta tan solo al eje de la hélice y no al motor completo, lo que hace el mecanismo más sencillo y fiable. La transmisión está diseñada de modo que si un motor falla ambas hélices pueden rotar, evitando desequilibrios. Tiene cola en V, dispone de tren de aterrizaje retráctil y de un sistema de vuelo con redundancia triple, además de poder integrar un casco para los pilotos derivado del desarrollado para el F-35, capaz de mostrar información según su línea de visión.

La posición elevada de las hélices permite un fácil ingreso y salida del aparato, cuya cabina es comparable (y de hecho similar) a la del UH-60 Black Hawk. Dos amplias puertas facilitan entradas y salidas y permiten campos de fuego abiertos para armamento montado en ellas. Además, el V-280 puede llevar cañones, cohetes o misiles para apoyar a las fuerzas de tierra; el fabricante afirma que incluso puede lanzar drones en vuelo. Como indicación de hacia dónde van las tendencias de la guerra futura, el Valor incluye en los asientos de la cabina un sistema de carga inalámbrica para los aparatos electrónicos de la infantería, como radios, ordenadores o sistemas de navegación o visión nocturna.


El aparato tiene una velocidad de crucero de 280 nudos (520 km/h) y máxima de 300 nudos (560 km/h), un alcance máximo que supera los 3.900 km y un rango de misión de 900 a 1.400 km. El peso máximo al despegue se situará en unos 13.600 kg, y dobles ganchos de carga le permitirán elevar 4.500 kg externamente, lo que le permite llevar un cañón M777A2 de 155 mm colgado hasta a 280 km/h. El consorcio constructor espera que cada ejemplar esté en el rango de precio de los helicópteros Blackhawk, y sueña con conseguir pedidos de entre 2.000 y 4.000 unidades (incluyendo tal vez una versión armada de ataque) para rentabilizar la inversión.

SB-1 Defiant, un helicóptero con empujón

El otro contendiente para el programa FVL es el SB-1 Defiant de Sikorsky y Boeing, que es un helicóptero más convencional pero con algunas características propias con cierto historial de fracasos. Para alcanzar las capacidades exigidas por el concurso, el SB-1 tiene una configuración de helicóptero con dobles rotores contrarrotatorios coaxiales como los que se ha especializado en desarrollar el fabricante ruso Kamov. Este diseño ofrece ventajas respecto a la potencia útil, el menor nivel de ruido y especialmente el carecer de rotor de cola al estar exento del par de giro producido en un helicóptero convencional por su hélice. A cambio, tiene mayor complicación mecánica en el diseño del eje principal y precisa de una adecuada separación entre ambas hélices para evitar que puedan colisionar entre sí.

Para aumentar la velocidad horizontal, el proyecto del SB-1 Defiant cuenta además con una hélice propulsora en la cola a la que se deriva la mayor parte de la potencia del motor durante el vuelo horizontal. Esta configuración permitió al demostrador de tecnología X2, en el que se basa, batir (de modo no oficial) el récord mundial de velocidad horizontal para helicópteros al alcanzar los 460 km/h. Boeing y Sikorsky ya trabajaron juntas en el RAH-66 Comanche, un helicóptero ligero de reconocimiento y ataque con características ‘furtivas’ que fue cancelado en 2004 tras invertirse más de 7.000 millones de dólares en su desarrollo. Pero el diseño de helicóptero con hélice propulsora es más antiguo: ya se propuso en los años sesenta por Lockheed con el helicóptero de ataque AH-56 Cheyenne, cancelado por diversos problemas en 1972.

También en el X2 se basa el helicóptero ligero de ataque S-97 Raider, que ya cuenta con dos prototipos aunque es mucho más pequeño y ligero que su pariente destinado al transporte y al ataque pesado. La propuesta del SB-1 Defiant es un aparato de 13,6 toneladas de peso capaz de transportar dos pilotos y 12 soldados completamente equipados en condiciones ‘high and hot’ hasta a 460 km/h. Para cumplir con las especificaciones del programa FVL, deberá tener un alcance de misión de más de 425 km, y sus diseñadores subrayan las ventajas del doble rotor coaxial en cuanto a maniobrabilidad y seguridad. El aparato podría perder por completo la hélice impulsora y no por ello ser menos ágil, aunque su velocidad se vería reducida a la de un helicóptero convencional (277 a 296 km/h).



La hélice propulsora le confiere la capacidad de mantenerse en vuelo estático con la nariz 20 grados por encima o por debajo de la horizontal, postura que los helicópteros convencionales no pueden mantener y que tiene notables ventajas tácticas. Además, se espera que el SB-1 sea capaz de velocidades de ascenso y descenso muy por encima de las de los helicópteros actuales, aunque las capacidades detalladas finales dependerán mucho de la elección de los motores; está previsto que los primeros prototipos utilicen versiones del motor del helicóptero de transporte CH-34 Chinook para más adelante incorporar plantas propulsoras más eficientes y potentes.

En todo caso, la batalla entre el Defiant y el Valor será dura, puesto que las consecuencias de la derrota son graves: el elegido en esta fase marcará la planta común de desarrollo para todo el programa FVL, lo que supone muchos miles de aparatos de múltiples tamaños a lo largo de décadas, todos compartiendo configuración y elementos de pilotaje y mantenimiento. En suma, decenas de miles de millones de dólares en juego, el futuro de las compañías participantes en el alero. Se espera que ambos prototipos estén en condiciones de empezar las pruebas de vuelo a finales de 2017, momento en el que comenzará la pelea final. Lo único seguro es que el futuro helicóptero de transporte de las fuerzas armadas estadounidenses y, por implicación e historia, de muchos otros países, no será un diseño convencional.

          Comment on Dress rehearsal completed for SpaceX’s Sunday launch by mkent   
"SpaceX is also proficient in flight management and logistics; while Boeing has a lot of experience in space, I don’t know how that compares to SpaceX." Boeing is prime contractor for the American side of the ISS, which includes much of the day-to-day analyses and operations. The people you see on-console on NASA TV are NASA employees, but many of the people in the back offices those people talk to are Boeing employees. In fact, from what I have heard, Boeing provided substantial help to SpaceX between COTS 1 and COTS 2/3 to help get them qualified to berth with the ISS. While SpaceX's native capability has grown much since then, I doubt they have much, if any, advantage over Boeing here. Over Lockheed (prime contractor of Orion), sure, but not Boeing.

          Hey, @$$hole, Your 15 Minutes Were Up...30 Minutes Ago!   


So...lemme see if I got this straight...

James "Comey The Clown" Comey, the FBI director so fired his ass didn't even hit the steps between the door of the Hoover Building and the asphalt on Pennsylvania Avenue; the one whose head most Democrats were screaming for when they thought Shrillary was going to win, and he had stepped on his dick (or hers); the one who broke into government service as a long-time shill for the Clinton Machine since 2000/2001; who excused the corrupt Bill Clinton pardon of Marc Rich; then funneled Lockheed corporate payoffs to the Clinton Foundation; then moved to HSBC to cover up that scandal after they'd funneled drug and oil money to the Clinton Foundation; whose brother "audited" (for some values of the word "whitewash") the corruption of the Clinton Foundation slush fund in return for a $700K loan from FBI Director Comey; and who "couldn't see any reason to prosecute" Hillary Clinton for anything despite acknowledging publicly and in detail that she'd committed metric fucktons of federal felonies worth something upwards of 660,000 years in federal prison, and $33,000,000 in fines under the provisions of 44 USC 310118 USC 1519, and 18 USC 2071, before even addressing the hundreds of egregious and felonious failures and exposure of the most closely held classified-above-Top-Secret material the U.S. government possesses, including the Holy Grail of revealing intelligence sources and methods...
that guy has, without any corroboration whatsoever nor even possible, now suddenly remembered that President Trump improperly suggested that Comey terminate an investigation that, to date, has yet to uncover any actual suspect, of any actual crime, whatsoever, despite hundreds of FBI agents investing man-years and millions of dollars of investigatorial time looking for imaginary actions in a witch-hunt of biblical proportions designed solely to prop up the media's toothless factless narrative that Trump stole the election he won in an electoral landslide, by doing something somehow with somebody and Russians, because...reasons?

The same guy who had no curiosity whatsoever about why former President Clinton travelled all the way to Phoenix AZ in order to conveniently "bump into" AG Lynch, just before Comey cleared Shrillary of any wrongdoing in violating every precept of security and handling of classified material, such that an ordinary citizen doing same would be in a pit in SuperMax Federal Prison with air and daylight pumped in to them in some subterranean penal abyss down hundreds of feet beneath the ground?

The only thing Congress should be doing is hiring a conga line of guys to throw cream pies in Comey's face, every 5 seconds, from dawn to dusk, for a week, just to approach the level of respect his testimony on anything should be accorded.

One can only imagine the fear this pathetic wastrel must hold of the Clinton Machine that after receiving the world's record worst federal firing notice of all time
he would still rather pull his pants down and spank himself in front of the entire Congress than retire quietly to the ignominy he so richly deserves, and await that one-way Tahoe fishing trip into oblivion with one of Clinton minions driving the boat.
You'd think he'd summon a spine, and strike back at those who ruined his life, and career, and who've held his chain for going on twenty years.
But you'd be wrong. He's going to see this thing through right to the end.
Well played, sir.
You're an inspiration to thousands of people who thought this guy couldn't be topped:
Unfortunately, we already know how the story ends.

          United Launch Alliance beats SpaceX to win Air Force launch   

United Launch Alliance beats SpaceX to win Air Force launchUnited Launch Alliance, a partnership of Lockheed Martin Corp and Boeing Co , for the first time beat Elon Musk's SpaceX in competition for an Air Force satellite launch, both launch companies said on Friday. The contract value is just over $191 million, the Air Force said. The award is the first for United Launch Alliance since the Air Force certified rival SpaceX's Falcon 9 rockets for flight and opened bidding for launch contracts in 2015.



          Hybrid airship offers new air-freight potential   

Image result for lockheed hybrid airship

 

 

If the word “airship” makes you think of blimps flying over a golf tournament, prepare to think again. With a 10-ft x 10-ft x 60-ft cargo bay and a 21-short-ton cargo payload, Lockheed’s LMH-1 Hybrid Airship design certainly stands out as an ambitious air-freight project.

 

At this year’s Paris Air Show, Hybrid Air Freighters (HAF) signed a Letter of Intent to purchase up to 12 of Lockheed Martin’s Hybrid Airships from Hybrid Enterprises, the exclusive reseller of Lockheed Martin’s airship vehicles. The deal is valued at approximately $500 million.

 

The logistics business has struggled for years to deliver oversized payloads to remote sites, and doing so has required expensive infrastructure development, such as airports, long runways, roads and port facilities. The LMH-1, however, could provide end-to-end deliveries, touching down in remote, small clearings, and because they require little or no fixed ground infrastructure and burn significantly less fuel compared to conventional aircraft, they are an environmentally friendly solution to remote cargo delivery, HAF explains.

 

Key to this is the hybrid airship’s use of what Lockheed calls a “air cushion landing system,” or ACLS, which consists of three underbody hoverpads shaped like donuts. These hoverpads create a cushion of air that allows the airship to float along the ground nearly friction free, according to Lockheed. The system reportedly gives the airship the ability to land on surfaces where other aircraft can’t—including the ability to hover over water.

 

“Customers will feel confident that with more than a century of proven experience, Lockheed Martin has repeatedly solved seemingly impossible challenges through its products and technologies,” says Rob Binns, chief executive officer of Hybrid Enterprises.

 

“We are keen to implement such an impressive innovation in the logistics market,” says Hubert de Contenson, CEO of HAF. “The LMH-1 will open a new era for remote cargo delivery that is free from costly ground infrastructure and will provide a sustainable and affordable solution to remote cargo operations around the world.”

 

Past failures of lighter-than-air aircraft have earned airships a reputation that has been tough to shake. However, technology has come a long way since, as an Air Cargo World article notes, airbone, flammable gas bags named after the German Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin were a common sight in the skies. Lockheed, and HAF, are betting the helium-filled LMH-1 Hybrid Airship is the future of modern airships. Indeed, as Lockheed explains, the technologies required for Hybrid Airships are already mature and have been demonstrated in-flight by Lockheed Martin’s P-791, a fully functional, manned flight demonstrator.

 

“We’ve invested more than 20 years to develop the technology, prove the performance and ensure there are compelling economics for the Hybrid Airship,” says Orlando Carvalho, executive vice president of Lockheed Martin Aeronautics. “We have completed all required FAA certification planning steps for a new class of aircraft and are ready to begin construction of the first commercial model and the completion of the FAA Type certification process.”

 

One potential application for this kind of airship would appear to be the oil, gas and mining industries, which spend billions on logistics annually—building roads, helipads and other infrastructure to manage moving equipment and personnel to remote sites. The airship could also be used to gain access into hard-to-reach areas to enable lifesaving response after a calamity. Another application that comes to mind is use of the airship to carry large quantities of commercial cargo, giving infrastructure-poor areas a chance at success in the global economy.

 

What are your thoughts on possible applications for a next generation of airship?

          Only 2% Of US Politicians Actually Want To Stop Arming Terrorists - Here's Why   

Authored by Alice Salles via TheAntiMedia.org,

One of the few elected Democratic lawmakers with an extensive anti-war record, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii), has combined forces with Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) to push legislation through both the House and the Senate that would bar federal agencies from using taxpayer-backed funds to provide weapons, training, intelligence, or any other type of support to terrorist cells such as al-Qaeda, ISIS, or any other group that is associated with them in any way.

The Stop Arming Terrorists Act is so unique that it’s also the only bill of its kind that would also bar the government from funneling money and weapons through other countries that support (directly or indirectly) terrorists such as Saudi Arabia.

To our surprise — or should we say shame? — only 13 other lawmakers out of hundreds have co-sponsored Gabbard’s House bill. Paul’s Senate version of the bill, on the other hand, has zero cosponsors.

While both pieces of legislation were introduced in early 2017, no real action has been taken as of yet. This proves that Washington refuses to support bills that would actually provoke positive chain reactions not only abroad but also at home. Why? Well, let’s look at the groups that would lose a great deal in case this bill is signed into law.

Military & Homeland Security Companies, Lobbyists, And Lawmakers All Profit From War

With trillions of tax dollars flowing to companies such as Boeing, Lockheed Martin, and even IBM, among others, companies that invest heavily in weapons, cyber security systems, and other technologies that are widely used in times of war would stand to lose a lot — if not everything — if all of a sudden, the United States chose to become a nation that stands for peace and free market principles.

For one, these companies have a heavy lobbying presence, ensuring that lawmakers sympathetic to their plight are elected every two years. When the possibility of a new conflict appears on the horizon, these companies are the first to lobby heavily for action.

But this dynamic isn’t a secret. We all know that the crony capitalist system that thrives in Washington, D.C., is the very bread and butter of politics in America. After all, President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned the nation in his farewell address in 1961 that “an immense military establishment and a large arms industry” were becoming the great powers behind U.S. politics, and that if we weren’t weary of this influence, we would risk living in a perpetual state of war.

Still, we allowed it to take over. And there isn’t one industry powerful enough to counter this destructive authority.

With the support of an army of well-established and connected millionaire lobbyists, the war machine operating in Washington is so powerful that anything can be turned into an existential threat.

Any conflict abroad that has absolutely no importance or that poses literally no threat to the common American is inflated to become a threat to the American way of life. They hate us “for our freedom.” Therefore, we must show them what democracy looks like.

Without the same kind of powerful and wealthy team behind the cause for sanity and peace, this army of big money and big lobbyists has single-handedly put us and many generations to come in debt over Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, Yemen, and now Syria. And as the marketing machine behind this kind of lobbying effort taps into the social justice trend that has infiltrated every aspect of our culture in recent years, these organizations have learned that they will get even broader support from the public if they add feminist, anti-poverty, and pro-equality messages to their pro-war efforts.

Take the #BringBackOurGirls campaign, for instance, which, as NBC has reported, originated with “Obiageli Ezekwesili, a former vice president of the World Bank for the Africa region and a senior advisor on Africa Economic Development Policy for the Open Society Foundations”  —  a George Soros-backed foundation. In no time, the social media “effort” had become the most effective lobbying force behind the expansion of the never-ending war on terror. And whether it was meant to promote this outcome or not, it helped the United States easily invest more tax dollars into an unwinnable war.

As you can see, even if Gabbard and Paul managed to use all of their time to force the Stop Arming Terrorists Act through Congress so it could get to President Donald Trump’s desk, the powers at play in Washington would do their best to sweep this effort under the rug. Not because individuals involved in pro-war lobbying are, perhaps, thirsty for war per se, but because the system under which they operate allows for bad incentives to produce a great deal of wealth and influence, tilting the balance toward evil.

Without a state that can be bribed, companies would be left to fend for themselves and stay afloat by making customers… happy. And you can’t make customers happy if all you have to offer is war.

Poland plans to double military spending


Poland plans to nearly double its military spending in an attempt to be able to defend itself “alone if necessary” against potential foreign invasion. Under the plan, Warsaw is expected to raise its military spending to 2.5 percent of its GDP by 2030 and add a further 100,000 personnel to its armed forces. It also plans to buy 70 multi-task helicopters, with deliveries starting next year. The government also said it would sign a $76-billion deal by the end of 2017 with a US firm to buy eight Patriot missile defense systems. Poland also aims to buy two squadrons of Lockheed Martin F-35 fighters, which each costs at least $100 million. The government claims the new military strategy will increase its ability to defend Poland against foreign aggression. Critics, however, describe the plan as “ambitious” and “absolutely unrealistic.” “Self-sufficiency? How? This is absolutely unrealistic,” one government official told Reuters. “Do we really want to send a message to our NATO allies that we don’t care about them?”
NATO has not publicly commented on Warsaw’s change of track, but it seems to be wary.
“No one can stop any member country from shooting itself in the foot. The consequences of that will be apparent when something really collapses,” Reuters quoted a NATO official as saying on condition of anonymity.
Waldemar Skrzypczak, a general who resigned as an adviser to the Defense Ministry earlier this year, said that Poland’s major problem right now is “the lack of army modernization.”
Two-thirds of Poland’s military equipment still dates to the Soviet era. Its armed forces have also suffered from decades of under-investment.
Poland has also been criticized for taking its modern, German-made battle tanks away from its western border and sending them to Warsaw, closer to the border with Russia.
In case of a sudden attack on the country, Poland would not be able to use them, the experts said.

1/48 Lockheed P-38J Lightning Paint Mask for Hasegawa kit (Canopy Masks + Insignia Masks)This set contains: 2 canopy masks(outside & inside) + 1 insignia masks

How-to:
Preparing the masks: Masks should not be stretched during the application process as they are flexible and this could cause deformation. Remove the whole mask if necessary, and then apply again. Once placed on the model, the mask surface should be adjusted to the surface of the model by tracing all the indentations with a pointed wooden stick.
Painting method: Try not to apply two coats of color at the edges of a mask. Instead, apply one color prior to painting the proper camouflage, and apply the other color after the mask is back on. Otherwise, the coating in the areas encased by the mask may be too thick, and after removing the mask the edges of the lighter color may become visible.

          Lamborghini Sports Cars Navarra Concept Study by Adam Denning - MEMG74HK8NVM   
After having unveiled the Lamborghini Cnossus Concept a couple of days, it's time to see another Lamboghini conceptual study. The Lamborghini Navarra Concept Study is the work of Adam Denning, a designer for Lockheed Martin USA.
Lamborghini Sports Cars Navarra Concept Study
It seems that many young designers from the Lamborghini race car design to create the best future. Here comes yet another proposal for a Raging Bull model, this time from American Adam Denning inspired by Michelangelo’s La Pieto who happens to be a designer for Lockheed Martin USA. The Navarra is design study for a flagship Lamborghini super sports car to replace the current Murcielago model.
The shape of the curves and how they interwine with each other give the Lamborgihini Navarra Concept Study these organic forms. The way Mary’s garments flow down and fold over each other was the main inspiration for the Navarra overlaping surfaces and organic shapes.
Adam Denning plan to put all the V12 flagships of the brand from the Miura to the Murcielago and the Navarra would make use of a carbon-fiber frame and carbon-fiber panels with power coming from a V12 engine.
The new 2010 Lamborgihini Navarra Concept was created as a successor to the Bat, Denning tried to imagine all V12 models the company logo from the Miura to the Lamborghini Murcielago and hence, created a vehicle that only belonged to this group, but also was output of these models. The power behind the concept would be a powerful V12 engine producing between 650 and 700 bhp.

Pence stated in March during the signing ceremony for the NASA Transition Authorization Act and again in June when NASA announced the new class of astronauts that the Space Council would be reestablished and he would lead it. In that sense. the announcement today was no surprise, but the White House kept the news to itself.  Rumors began circulating earlier this week that the announcement would take place today at 3:00 pm ET, but even this morning it was not listed on the President's schedule.  The White House press office asserted that it had no knowledge of the event as late as 1:30 pm, although Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders mentioned it at the end of the daily White House press briefing that began at 2:00 pm ET (which was off-camera).

No live coverage was provided by the White House, NASA, or television networks, although a video was later posted on the White House YouTube channel.

Most members of the House and Senate left Washington last night for the July 4 holiday, but based on the video, six Republican House members stayed in town for the event today:  Rep. John Culberson (R-TX), chairman of the Commerce-Justice-Science (CJS) subcommittee of the House Appropriations Committee, which funds NASA;  Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX), chairman of the House Science, Space, and Technology (SS&T) Committee, which authorizes NASA activities and sets policy; Rep. Brian Babin (R-TX), chairman of the House SS&T Space Subcommittee; Rep. Steve Palazzo (R-MS), member of the House CJS subcommittee; and two other members of House SS&T - Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) and Rep. Bill Posey (R-FL). 

Joining them were NASA astronaut Benjamin Alvin Drew and former astronaut David Wolf (in blue flight suits to Pence's right), former Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin (to Pence's left, with white beard), and former space shuttle astronaut Sandy Magnus (first woman to Aldrin's left).  Magnus currently is Executive Director of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA).

Others who were present include United Launch Alliance President Tory Bruno; Boeing CEO Dennis Mulinberg; Lockheed Martin CEO Marilyn Hewson; Orbital ATK Director of Business Development, Launch Vehicle Division, John Steinmeyer; AMRO Fabricating Corporation CEO Mike Riley and President John Hammond; Futuramic Tool & Engineering Company Vice President John Couch; Cain Tubular Products Owner Mike Cain; Coalition for Deep Space Exploration (CDSE) President and CEO Mary Lynne Dittmar; former NASA Flight Director Gene Kranz; and former Congressman and lobbyist Bob Walker.  (Notable by their absence were representatives of entrepreneurial "New Space" companies.)

The only member of the Council other than Pence who was there was Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross.  Acting NASA Administrator Robert Lightfoot was not present.  NASA said he was out of town and unable to attend.  In a press release issued after the event, Lightfoot called the reestablishment of the Council "another demonstration of the Trump Administration's deep interest in our work, and a testament to the importance of space exploration to our economy, our nation, and the planet as a whole."

Pence said he was "honored and frankly enthusiastic" about taking on this role, adding that President Trump was recommitting the nation to "do what Americans have always done -- to lead, to push the boundaries of human knowledge, to blaze new trails into the unknown and astonish the world with the courage and leadership of the United States."

Trump himself said the announcement "sends a clear signal to the world that we are restoring America's proud legacy of leadership in space," and "space exploration is not only essential to our character as a nation, but also our economy and our great nation's security."

Pence will travel to NASA's Kennedy Space Center on July 6 to tour facilities and speak to the center's workforce.  NASA TV will cover the event beginning at 12:00 pm ET. Pence's speech is scheduled for 12:50 pm ET. 

The value of having a National Space Council in the White House has been debated at length over the decades.  Congress created a National Aeronautics and Space Council in the 1958 National Aeronautics and Space Act that established NASA for civil space activities and assigned military space activities to DOD.  That Council's task was to coordinate between civil and national security space.  President Richard Nixon abolished the Council in 1973.  A new National Space Council, without the aeronautics component, was created by Congress in the FY1989 NASA Authorization Act and implemented through an Executive Order signed by President George H.W. Bush on April 20, 1989.  Today's Executive Order supersedes the one from the Bush Administration.

The Bush-era Space Council had a broader task since commercial space activities had emerged by then, adding a third sector.  That period of time (April 1989-January 1993) was marked by sharp disagreements between the Council, chaired by Vice President Quayle with Mark Albrecht serving as Executive Director for most of those years, and NASA Administrator Dick Truly.  Albrecht wrote a memoir about his perception of the relationship between the Space Council and NASA and why President Bush's Space Exploration Initiative to return astronauts to the Moon and someday go to Mars never materialized, placing most of the blame on Truly. That is only one view of what transpired during those years, but the relevant point is that the clash between the Space Council and NASA created friction that hindered more than it helped.

Many veterans of that era have mixed views about whether a new Space Council will be effective.

Scott Pace, Director of the Space Policy Institute at George Washington University and a long-time participant in space policy development and implementation, wrote in a March 14, 2017 op-ed for The Hill that the "White House does not, and never has, needed a space council to supervise NASA, but it does need a way to combine the separate strands of national security space programs, diplomatic engagement, commercial competition and civil space cooperation with a unity of national purpose and effort."

One key to the success or failure of the Space Council will be the relationships that evolve among its Executive Director and the leaders of the various government agencies, including NASA, and private sector companies involved in space. Pence did not announce who will serve as Executive Director of the Council and no announcement has yet been made as to who will be nominated to serve as NASA Administrator.

Another will be the extent to which the President listens to the Council's advice and backs it up during almost inevitable battles with other parts of the Executive Office of the President, such as the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).

For now, however, optimism is the watchword.

House SS&T Chairman Smith said in a statement to SpacePolicyOnline.com that the "reinstatement of the Space Council demonstrates the Trump administration's commitment to unlocking the great economic and scientific potential" of outer space.  He added that he looks forward to working with Pence and the Council "as Congress moves forward on important legislation for civil, commercial and national security space priorities."

Eric Stallmer, President of the Commercial Spaceflight Federation (CSF), told SpacePolicyOnline.com that CSF "looks forward to working with the Space Council to showcase the innovation and value the commercial space marketplace brings to the space community."

In a press release, CDSE's Dittmar called reestablishment of the Council "another important step in solidifying our nation's continued commitment to NASA's deep space exploration program."  That press release identified many of the industry representatives who were at the event and are CDSE members, including suppliers like AMRO Fabricating Corp., Futuramic Tool & Engineering Co., and Cain Tubular Products.

AIAA also issued a press release wherein Magnus said the Institute views the Space Council as "an opportunity to create an integrated strategic approach to U.S. space endeavors" and "stands ready to support any and all efforts to facilitate discussions between our community and executive branch officials."

Correction:  The word "commercial" was inadvertently omitted from Eric Stallmer's quote and has been corrected.
Update:  Comments from NASA Acting Administrator Lightfoot from a June 30, 2017 NASA press release were added.

          Trump's budget cuts to domestic, aid programs draw Republican scorn   
Washington: President Donald Trump's first budget outline, calling for a security-heavy realignment of federal spending, drew resistance on Thursday from his fellow Republicans in the U.S. Congress as many balked at proposed deep cuts to diplomatic and foreign aid programs.

Conservatives have plenty to like in the White House plan, with its 10 percent increase in military spending next year and beefed-up funding to help deport more illegal immigrants and build a wall on the border with Mexico.

It also takes steps to downsize government, a central goal of conservatives.

But the gaze into Trump's priorities for the next four years proved too savage for many Republicans' taste, foreshadowing an intense battle between Congress and the White House over spending in coming months.

Although Republicans control both the Senate and House of Representatives, Congress holds the federal purse strings and seldom approves presidents' budget plans.

The administration asked Congress for a 28 percent, or $10.9 billion, cut in State Department funding and other international programs to help pay for a 10 percent, $54 billion hike in military spending next year.

"These increases in defence come at the expense of national security," said Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, who has not hesitated to take on Trump. Republican Senator Marco Rubio, who like Graham ran unsuccessfully for president in 2016, levelled similar sentiments, as did some prominent Republicans in the House of Representatives.

House Speaker Paul Ryan sidestepped reporters' questions about whether he supported State Department cuts, saying the White House blueprint was just the start of the budget process.

The budget also drew criticism internationally. The French ambassador to the United Nations, Francois Delattre, warned that cutting funding of global programs could fuel instability.

ELECTION PROMISES

The White House shrugged off concerns about the impact, saying Trump was making good on election promises.

"The president said, specifically, hundreds of times - you covered him - 'I'm going to spend less money on people overseas and more money on people back home' and that's exactly what we're doing with this budget," Trump's budget director, Mick Mulvaney, told reporters.

Democrats, whose votes would be needed later this year to sign off on the spending bills that implement any budget blueprint given the slim Republican hold on the Senate, attacked the proposed reductions to the Environmental Protection Agency and programs that benefit the poor.

The White House proposal would inflict a 31 percent, or $2.6 billion, cut on the EPA.

Some veteran Republicans, including Senator Rob Portman of Ohio, a White House budget chief during the administration of President George W. Bush, vowed to preserve the EPA's Great Lakes restoration program that Trump wants to eliminate.

Moderate Republicans expressed unease with potential cuts to popular domestic programs.

Lisa Murkowski, who chairs the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, attacked plans to cut or eliminate programs that help the poor pay heating bills, provide aid for localities to deal with wastewater and subsidize air travel in rural areas like her home state of Alaska.

"We need to remember that these programs are not the primary drivers of our debt," Murkowski said.

In fact, those "discretionary" programs that must be renewed annually by Congress, account for about $1.2 trillion out of a $3.9 trillion federal budget.

The biggest portion of the budget - about $2.4 trillion - is for "mandatory entitlement" programs that provide Social Security retirement benefits and Medicare and Medicaid healthcare for the elderly, poor and disabled.

Conservatives have been clamouring for years for reforms to those programs to save money. Trump vowed, however, to protect them as he campaigned for president last year.

Trump was silent on those programs in the plan released on Thursday, but they will be included in a fuller fiscal blueprint due out in mid-May that will project spending and revenues over 10 years. It is unclear if any reforms for those programs will be part of that budget.

Other discretionary cuts proposed by Trump included community development grants at the Housing Department and more than 20 Education Department programs. Funding would disappear for 19 independent bodies that count on federal money for public broadcasting, the arts and regional programs.

"Throwing billions at defence while ransacking America’s investments in jobs, education, clean energy and lifesaving medical research will leave our nation weakened," said House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi.

DEFENSE MONEY FOR CURRENT YEAR

Trump also asked for $25 billion more for core Defense Department programs for the current fiscal year, as well as $5 billion more for combat operations. A detailed copy of that request seen by Reuters showed some of the funds would be for procurement of technology such as F-35 fighter aircraft and drone systems.

About $13.5 billion of the supplemental request was earmarked for aircraft, missiles and ships. It included THAAD missiles, Blackhawk helicopters and F-35s made by Lockheed Martin Corp , as well as F/A-18 warplanes and Apache helicopters manufactured by Boeing Co .

Also for this fiscal year, Trump requested $3 billion more for the Department of Homeland Security, with some of that money intended for planning and construction of the border wall that he made a major part of his 2016 election campaign.

Congress will likely consider the supplemental request by April 28, when regular funding expires for most federal agencies.

The budget outline also does not incorporate Trump's plan for sparking $1 trillion in investments to build roads, bridges, airports and other infrastructure projects. The White House has said the infrastructure plan is still to come.

The planned defence increases are mainly matched by cuts to other programs so as to not increase the $488 billion federal deficit.

Despite the proposed big cuts to the EPA and the State Department, Mulvaney said their "core functions" would be preserved.

Reflecting Trump's repeated election campaign pledge to reduce illegal immigration, the Department of Homeland Security would get a 6.8 percent increase, with more money for extra staff needed to catch, detain and deport illegal immigrants.

Trump wants Congress to approve $1.5 billion for the border wall in the current fiscal year - enough for pilot projects to determine the best way to build it - and a further $2.6 billion in fiscal 2018, Mulvaney said.

The estimate for the total cost of the wall will be included in the upcoming full budget.

Trump has repeatedly said that Mexico will pay for the wall. Mexico has adamantly said it will not. Since Trump took office in January, the White House has said funding would be kick-started in the United States.

          United States Air Force (USAF) Special Operations Squadron Lockheed MC-130J Hercules 12-5761 Arrives at Rockhampton Airport   

Late on Saturday 1 July, United States Air Force (USAF) Special Operations Squadron Lockheed MC-130J Hercules 12-5761 touched down at Rockhampton Airport from Cairns as "Spock 42".


After initially shutting down on Taxiway 'Juliette' for a short time, the Herc was eventually parked on the Northern Military Hardstand at Rockhampton Airport and appeared to be staying for the night.

Designated as a MC-130J Commando II, 12-5761 is flown by the 17th Special Operations Squadron (17 SOS) and is part of the 353d Special Operations Group at Kadena Air Base in Japan.  It was the reportedly the first ever MC-130J delivered to Kadena in late 2014.

More photos to come!

Then, as the sun was setting later on Friday 30 June, the Herc - serial 164106 - coded RU-106 - of the VR-55 Fleet Logistics Support Squadron 55 - was pictured soon after it returned to Rockhampton Airport from Richmond yet again as "Convoy 7966".  It was noted parking on the Northern military hardstand at Rocky and looked to be again spending the night.

On Saturday 1 July, 164106 made a mid-morning departure from Rockhampton Airport believed to heading for Andersen Air Force Base (AFB) in Guam.
