30 May 06. Raytheon Company’s SLAMRAAM (Surface Launched Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missile) program marked the delivery of the first Integrated Fire Control Shelter (IFCS) May 26 at a ceremony at Boeing’s Huntsville, Ala., facility. The IFCS provides command and control for multiple SLAMRAAM fire units, thus enabling integrated fire control capabilities. The Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems’ (IDS) SLAMRAAM system of systems provides the warfighter a tailorable, state of the art air defense system that can defeat current and emerging cruise missile threats and a wide range of so-called air breathing threats. As prime system integrator, Raytheon will now integrate the air and missile defense common software to complete the IFCS functionality and prepare the IFCS for entry into the SLAMRAAM test program. The IFCS is the first of five to be designed and developed by subcontractor Boeing.
01 Jun 06. Advanced Micro Devices Inc. will offer a new chip for laptop computers and said it expects to be able to supply one third of the market for computer microprocessors by 2008, stepping up its challenge to rival Intel Corp.’s (INTC.O: Quote, Profile, Research) dominance. The announcement comes as investors and analysts are keen to see how No. 2 chipmaker AMD, which has grabbed market share from Intel over the past year, will respond to a new line-up of chips being rolled out by its far larger rival. The laptop chip showcased by AMD executives at the company’s technology day on Thursday is based on a new design that will help improve laptop battery life. The chip will come out some time in 2007. “We are introducing a new core design for the mobile space,” said Phil Hester, AMD’s chief technology officer. (Source: Reuters)
