ITAGAUI -- The Brazilian Air Force has received its first Gripen-E model fighter aircraft according to local press reports. The aircraft arrived via ship from Sweden in the Brazilian port of Itagaui on September 20th before being transported to the nearby Navagantes airfield.

The newly arrived Gripen, registration FAB4100, is now due to undergo additional flight and technical testing in order to analyze and refine the series performance indicators under local flight conditions in Brazil. Testing will primarily be conducted at Embraer's facilities at Gavino Peixoto. In late October, the aircraft will make a public appearance in the capital city of Brasilia to commemorate Aviator's Day. The aircraft is expected to enter active service in the second-half of 2021.

ELIZABETH CITY, N.C. -- The U.S. Coast Guard accepted delivery of its eighth HC-144B Ocean Sentry medium range surveillance aircraft outfitted with both the Ocean Sentry Refresh (OSR) modifications and the Minotaur mission system Aug. 24. Modifications to CGNR 2315 were completed at the Aviation Logistics Center in Elizabeth City, North Carolina.

The OSR project upgrades the aircraft with a new flight management system, which manages communication control, navigation and equipment monitoring. After the OSR upgrade is completed, each aircraft is redesignated as an HC-144B.

Minotaur integrates installed sensors and radar and provides dramatically improved data fusion as well as information processing and sharing capabilities.

Completion of missionization and upgrade of a ninth HC-144 is scheduled by the end of November. The service plans to upgrade each of the service’s 18 HC-144s by 2022.
