16 Aug 18. General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, Inc. (GA-ASI) announced last week that it will be expanding its Flight Test and Training Center (FTTC) at the Grand Sky Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) Business Park near Grand Forks, North Dakota.
“We’re excited to expand our footprint at Grand Sky as part of our FTTC in Grand Forks,” said Linden Blue, CEO, GA-ASI. “This growth from 5.5 acres to 20 acres will benefit our customers and strengthen our commitment to the Grand Forks community by building out our test and training capacity.”
The expansion announcement came during a visit to the FTTC by Secretary for Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen and North Dakota Senator John Hoeven on August 9th. GA-ASI’s expansion is intended to address its increasing demand from U.S. and international customers for flight crew training and sensor system testing. GA-ASI plans to add a second permanent hangar with more office and classroom space in the near term. The company currently employs 47 people in the Grand Forks area, and expects to at least double this number in the years ahead. In addition to the permanent and temporary hangars at Grand Sky, GA-ASI’s existing FTTC operation includes an office building located near the University of North Dakota campus, with classrooms and a Predator Mission Aircrew Training System simulator. In July, GA-ASI’s MQ-9B SkyGuardian began its historic trans-Atlantic flight by taking off from the FTTC, and landing at Fairford, Royal Air Force Base in the United Kingdom 24 hours later.
15 Aug 18. The University of New South Wales Council has approved the strategic investment to develop a new research, education and innovation precinct in Canberra’s CBD. Located along Constitution Avenue, the proposed UNSW Canberra City Campus would deliver both short-term and long-term economic benefits to the ACT community through the creation of employment and the attraction of world-class talent and industry. UNSW Canberra rector Professor Michael Frater said the location and focus of the new campus would further position the city as a global education destination.
“The new campus would be a significant expansion of the University’s Canberra-based activities and provide research, teaching, student accommodation and collaborative industry opportunities.”
Late last year, UNSW Canberra and the ACT government signed a memorandum of understanding to investigate the development of a business case for the proposed campus. This next step includes submitting a formal proposal for consideration by the ACT government. Snapshot of key features of the UNSW Canberra City Campus:
- Undergraduate and postgraduate programs that attract new students to Canberra;
- State-of-the-art, purpose-built facilities using educational and innovative digital technologies;
- Shared experiences with CIT students, through possible collaborations such as joint clubs, societies and activities, common teaching and social spaces; and
- A range of student accommodation options for a significant number of students on site.
Professor Frater describing the linking role the new innovation hub will play within the Canberra ecosystem: “It would complement the existing Canberra innovation ecosystem by providing a strong link in the research and innovation growth corridor that stretches from the University of Canberra through to the CSIRO, ANU, Canberra CBD, the Russell Defence precinct, and the Canberra International Airport.”
The campus would forge a link with the Canberra CBD through pedestrian bridges and shared spaces. It would act as a catalyst for human connections, idea sharing and the vibrant university community of the future, Professor Frater said. (Source: Defence Connect)

- Hyundai has laid down a 173 m fleet tanker on order for the Royal New Zealand Navy
- Country is on track to receive the vessel, which will support global deployments of the New Zealand Defence Force, by 2020
South Korean shipbuilder Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) has laid down the fleet tanker on order for the Royal New Zealand Navy (RNZN). Keel for the vessel, which will be in service as HMNZS Aotearoa (A 12) once commissioned, was laid down on 13 August at HHI’s facilities in Ulsan, the New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) announced via an official social publishing platform on the same day. The tanker was acquired under a NZD493m (USD323m) contract announced in 2016. Once completed, Aotearoa will displace 24,000 tonnes with an overall length of 166 m, an overall beam of 24.5m, and a design draught of 8.5m – making it the largest vessel to be operated by the RNZN. The tanker will incorporate an ‘axe bow’ design in its forward section for fuel efficiency, has a top speed of 16kt, and a maximum range of 6,750n miles. The ship, which has been described by the NZDF as one that is “built specifically to address global requirements of the New Zealand Defence Force and government agencies for deployment from Antarctica to the Arabian Gulf”, will have liquid cargo capacity for 8,000 tonnes of diesel fuel, 1,550 tonnes of aviation fuel, and 250 tonnes of fresh water. Fuel for vessels can be delivered via two NATO-compliant replenishment-at-sea (RAS) masts, one each on the port and starboard sides. Besides fuels and conventional cargo, the tanker can also accommodate up to 12 standardised 20 ft containers, four of which can contain dangerous goods such as ammunition. The ship will be equipped with a winterised crane that can lift to 25 tonnes. (Source: IHS Jane’s)

09 Aug 18. RAF revises Hercules plans to reflect Iraq loss. The UK Royal Air Force (RAF) is to adjust the composition of its planned future Lockheed Martin C-130J Hercules fleet to reflect the recent loss of an aircraft on operations in Iraq. The RAF fields both the ‘short-bodied’ C-130J (designated C5 in RAF service) and ‘long-bodied’ C-130J-30 (C4) variants of the Hercules. As stated in the country’s Strategic Defence and Security Review (SDSR) of 2015, the RAF at that time planned to divest its 10 C-130Js while retaining only its 14 C-130J-30s. However, in June of this year Jane’s reported that one of these C-130J-30s was recently abandoned in Iraq following heavy landing, leaving just 13 in the inventory. On 9 August an MoD spokesperson told Jane’s that it is still the intention to field 14 Hercules. Though this will necessitate the retention of one C-130J, the spokesperson noted that the exact composition of the fleet has yet to be determined. The MoD’s comment to Jane’s came on the back of a US Air Force (USAF) solicitation for a centre-wing box (CWB) replacement effort for one C-130J and 13 C-130J-30 aircraft that was issued the day before. While the request for information (RFI) referred only to the USAF and made no mention of a Foreign Military Sales (FMS) customer, the number and variant of aircraft suggested that this requirement may be for the United Kingdom given that the RAF is the only customer that plans to operate the C-130J/C-130J-30 in numbers that match those set out in the RFI (something that has now been borne out by the MoD).
