INDUSTRY TEAMINGS

16 Nov 06. Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI), the country’s sole aircraft producer, reached a preliminary agreement Thursday with U.S. aerospace giant Lockheed Martin Corp. to boost their existing strategic cooperation in product development, marketing and sales, company officials said. Currently, KAI and the U.S.-based defense contractor are engaged in a joint marketing campaign to spur exports of the T-50 Golden Eagle aircraft, the world’s only advanced supersonic jet trainer, which they jointly developed and started mass producing last year.

15 Nov 06. Raytheon Company’s JPS Communications has partnered with Etherstack to market a Project 25 (P25) channel controller in North America. The device controls digital communication signals in two-way public safety radios. The P25 channel controller converts analog radio channels to P25 digital channels, allowing the user to economically replace conventional analog communication systems with the modernized P25 digital system. The controller will be marketed by Raytheon’s JPS Communications, while Etherstack will maintain responsibility for continued development of the device.
