THALES UMS-4110CL SONAR IN STRONG POSITION WITH THE FRIGATE MARKET
Tuesday, February 9, 2016

Source: Thales

NEWTOWN, Conn. - Through the use existing hardware and combining that hardware with modern signals processing and integration, Thales has moved into a strong position within the surface ship sonar market. This placement is largely attributable to the Franco-Italian FREMM frigate program and the procurement of these ships worldwide - for which the UMS-4110CL sonar variant is ideally suited.

The overall UMS-4100/4110 sonar series will probably continue its pattern of success and feature prominently on the export market for many years to come - with an average of three to five systems being procured each year through the end of the decade. At that time, potential sales will likely decrease to one or two units per year as the initial technology becomes outdated.

NORTHROP GRUMMAN'S BACN COMPLETES 100,000 COMBAT FLIGHT HOURS
Monday, February 8, 2016

Source: U.S. Air Force

SAN DIEGO - The Battlefield Airborne Communications Node (BACN), developed by Northrop Grumman Corp for the U.S. Air Force, achieved 100,000 combat operational flight hours Jan. 30, 2016 providing critical communications capabilities to warfighters.

BACN is a high-altitude, airborne communications gateway that translates and distributes imagery, video, voice and data, often from disparate elements, enhancing situational awareness, communications and coordination for warfighters in the air and on the ground. BACN can act as a high-altitude relay and has been used for missions such as airdrop and airstrike operations.

BACN flies on seven separate aircraft - and two aircraft platforms - to provide persistent connectivity and operational support 24 hours a day, seven days a week. BACN currently operates on four E-11As, a modified Bombardier business jet, and three EQ-4Bs, Global Hawk Comms Gateway unmanned aircraft systems.

BACN achieved the 100,000 mile milestone flying more than 8,300 missions since the system was first deployed in October 2008. BACN has delivered a mission availability rate above 98 percent.

Northrop Grumman is the prime contractor for the development, fielding and maintenance of the BACN system. The company was awarded the first BACN contract in April 2005 by the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, Hanscom Air Force Base, Massachusetts.
