WASHINGTON - Sweden-based Saab together with Boeing are competing to win the tender process to supply the United States Air Force with an advanced trainer aircraft. Saab will establish manufacturing and production capability in the United States for the T-X advanced trainer aircraft, should the Boeing and Saab solution be selected.

The final choice regarding location for production in the U.S. would be made based on what best serves the needs of the program, as well as Saab's own long-term strategy for growth.

The establishment of a new production capability would add to Saab's presence in the U.S., which includes solutions for radar and sensors, signature management, training and simulation, and support services, as well as for high resolution 3D mapping, air traffic management, and homeland security. Saab currently has seven operations in four states and the District of Columbia.

WESSLINGEN, Germany - Dornier Seawings rolled out its first new-production Seastar amphibian turboprop last month to an audience comprised of company shareholders, suppliers and employees. The event marked the successful completion of a critical milestone in the Seastar development project between Dornier Seawings GmbH and Dornier Seawings China.

The roll out event included a demonstration flight of the original Dornier Seastar prototype. Chinese shareholders from Wuxi pledged continued support to the program and Seastar ´s development.

The Seastar is equipped with two Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-135A turboprop engines, providing a total of 1,300 horsepower (flat-rated). Its in-line push-pull engine configuration eliminates asymmetric thrust in the event of an engine failure. The 12-passenger aircraft is equipped with Honeywell Primus Epic avionics. Range is 900 nm.

Dornier Seawings GmbH´s CEO, Amy Pan highlighted the new Seastar's technical improvements which include "a newly developed full digital cockpit, new corrosion resistant landing gear with the addition of nose wheel steering, a new cabin layout equipped with an air conditioning system and finally new high efficient propellers."

Pan is confident that, "as the market in China opens up and develops further, the Seastar will be able to seize opportunities there and play a significant role in the general aviation industry on a global scale."

These words confirm the larger efforts taken by the partners of Wuxi Government, Dornier Seawings China and Dornier Seawings GmbH, which see the Seastar as a cornerstone of development.

The company's team in Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany is working towards their next milestone deliverable, the first flight, which is scheduled for the first half of 2019. This will be followed by the Type Certificate in 2020.

HAIFA, Israel - Elbit Systems Ltd. announced that it will reorganize the business of CYBERBIT Solutions Ltd., its wholly-owned subsidiary. The defense Cyber Intelligence and Cyber Security business will be integrated with Elbit Systems Land and C4I Division and the commercial cyber business will continue to operate under CYBERBIT Ltd. The reorganization will become effective as of January 1, 2018.

Elbit Systems recognized a growing demand for Cyber Security and Cyber Intelligence in the defense sector as the modern battlefield requirements are shifting from C4I (command, control, communications, computers and intelligence) to C5I, with the addition of the cyber dimension. Elbit Systems Land and C4I Division offers high synergistic value in these areas and many years of operational experience to best meet these market needs.

CYBERBIT Ltd's commercial business has grown in the past couple of years and in order to maintain this growth and to be customer-oriented to its unique markets (financial sector, infrastructure security, etc.) the company decided to focus its commercial efforts under the CYBERBIT brand, which is becoming well known in this sector, the company said.
