05 Sep 11. New LED Gooseneck Light. The new LED Gooseneck from Oxley Developments incorporates state of the art LED technology to provide a rugged task light designed to meet the toughest military standards. With an array of features including straight or angled head, dual mode control with external control capability, dimmable range and secondary blackout lighting option, the LED Gooseneck light is rated to IP54, EMC tested and qualified to DEF-STAN 61 – 5 Part 5 and 6. With input voltage from 18 to 32 Vdc and high vibration and shock proof the Gooseneck offers the key benefits expected from advanced LED technology including high efficiency levels, exceptional durability and with a Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) of 40,000 hours, through life cost and maintenance savings.
Constructed from the highest quality components this new task light particularly complements the existing Oxley suite of vehicle and area lighting which will be showcased on the Oxley stand S3-390. The Gooseneck can be viewed in situ on the IVECO DEMONSTRATOR TRUCK on stand N8-130 along with Oxley IR Truck lights and DC Combi lights. Oxley vehicle lighting is also on show on the General Dynamics stand S9-105 as part of the new SCOUT PROGRAMME where Mini Floodlights and DC Combi lights from Oxley will be installed on the Turret Section of the Scout vehicle.

13 Sep 11. Locata has completed critical design review (CDR) of its non-GPS-based positioning system (NGBPS) which will enable the US Air Force (USAF) to deploy a new ground-based positioning system for use in GPS-denied environments. The CDR, conducted over a four-day period, reviewed real-world data gathered during two flight trials over a 600m² (1,500km²) LocataNet deployed around Cooma Airport in southern New South Wales, Australia. The NGBPS will provide accurate positioning when GPS is jammed over 2,500m² (6,500km²) of the White Sands Missile Range (WSMR) in New Mexico, US. The programme now moves to an initial deployment at WSMR for further testing in October 2011.Locata is under the USAF 746th Test Squadron (746TS) contract for this project to support the 746TS ultra-high-accuracy reference system (UHARS).

09 Sep 11. The US Air Force (USAF) has completed the first test of the miniature air-launched decoy jammer (MALD-J) in a simulated operational environment, validating the jammer’s capability to protect manned aircraft. MALD-J, the stand-in jammer variant of the MALD family, protects aircrew and airborne systems by reducing or eliminating the need for manned stand-in jamming aircraft. During the test, multiple MALD-Js in free flight and multiple captive-carry MALD-Js conducted electronic attack missions showed the ability to operate in a dynamic environment with a manned aircraft strike package. Raytheon Missile Systems Air Warfare Systems product line vice-president Harry Schulte said the test marked the greatest number of multiple Raytheon MALD vehicles airborne at once and demonstrated MALD-J’s ability to protect manned aircraft. “Completion of this test also removes the last major hurdle toward MALD-J
completing a functional configuration audit,” he added. (Source: airforcetechnology.com)
