Being Engineer is a great thing, but Being Aeronautical Engineer is the greatest thing. The way they work on aircraft, the idea of their creation, not all engineers can do. The following new (International news) is showing how great they are: UTAS EXPANDS AIRBORNE RECONNAISSANCE PORTFOLIOThe ISR and Space Systems business of UTC Aerospace Systems (UTAS) is here at the Paris Air Show promoting the latest upgrades to its strong-selling DB-110 airborne reconnaissance system. In its pod form, UTAS has sold this sensor to nine air forces for carriage by their F-16 fighters, and to a tenth for its F-15s. It has also been installed on the P-3 maritime patrol aircraft of Japan; on the business jets of two countries; and on the US MQ-9 Reaper UAV for two sets of trial flights. UTAS has also provided increasingly-sophisticated ground processing, exploitation and dissemination systems for the sensor from its wholly-owned facility in the UK. DB refers to the dual bands of the original design (visible/near infrared and medium-wave infrared); 110 refers to the focal length in visible/near infrared of the sensor when it is set to offer the longest range: from 40, 000 feet it can ‘see’ to the horizon – over 200 nautical miles. But it also contains separate, wide field-of-view optics that provide broad area coverage to the side as well as beneath the flight path of the host aircraft. This has proved very valuable in real operations that are usually conducted from lower altitudes to provide imagery out to 60 nautical miles, from which analysts can identify individual missiles, radars or vehicles.The DB-110 can be set for high-resolution ‘spot’ collection as well as area coverage, and it also offers target-tracking and stereo modes. Nearly all operators employ the common data link (CDL) to transmit the imagery to ground stations in real-time when required.One of the F-16 operators of the DB-110 will soon be confirmed as the first customer for a multispectral imaging (MSI) upgrade that UTAS has been offering. The MS-110 extends the sensor’s MWIR coverage and adds collection in five other spectral bands. Multispectral imaging provides color that allows analysts to distinguish between subtle features of a target that traditional gray-scale imaging cannot. Camouflage, haze and shadow may be overcome. Earth that has been disturbed to – for instance – plant improvised explosive devices can be identified. So can tunnels. MSI also offers entirely new operational possibilities, such as the analysis of vegetation for counter-narcotics purposes, and the monitoring of crop health.Another proposed upgrade replaces the DB-110 optical imaging sensor within the F-15/F-16 pod with an active electronically-scanned array (AESA) radar. This would allow reconnaissance operations to continue regardless of weather conditions. The radar would be provided by Leonardo’s UK subsidiary, and offer multiple modes including wide-area strip coverage; ‘spot’ coverage with resolution as good as six inches; ground-moving target indicator (GMTI); and sea search. Another existing F-16 operator is likely to be the launch customer for this version, which UTAS has named the Tactical Synthetic Aperture Radar (TacSAR) system.Disappointingly for UTAS (Chalet 346), the oldest and most extensive user of this sensor may be retiring it in two years’ time. Back in 1997, the UK Royal Air Force (RAF) became the launch customer for what became the DB-110 series, for a version named the Reconnaissance Airborne Pod for TORnado (Raptor). The RAF accepted the system in 2002, in time for Operation Iraqi Freedom in March of the following year, when Raptor-equipped Tornados provide invaluable in identifying targets and providing battle damage assessments (BDA).Since then, the RAF has deployed Raptor almost continuously on operations over Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and more recently Syria. The imagery has been routinely supplied to the US for exploitation by American image analysts.But the Tornado squadrons are to be grounded as soon as their strike capability has been fully transferred to the RAF’s Typhoon fleet. UTAS has proposed the supply of MS-110 and TacSAR sensors repackaged to fit in pods with the same outer mold lines as the Typhoon’s centerline fuel tank. The UK Ministry of Defense has not yet committed to the idea. AIN ONLINEPARIS AIR SHOWBy Chris Pocock17/06/2017www.soaneemrana.orgTel: 88002287020

The following new is explaining the great Job of Aeronautical Engineering, it may also offer Job opportunity for the branch of Aeronautical and Aircraft Maintenance Engineering: INDIAN MILITARY GETS CONNECTED AIRCRAFT DEMO FROM HONEYWELL ("Honeywell’s Boeing 757 testbed for connected aircraft technologies flew east after the Paris Air Show")Honeywell’s “Connected Aircraft” demonstrator reached India last week, after appearing at the Paris Air Show and heading east via Copenhagen, Moscow and Dubai. And while most of the company’s briefings in and around the Boeing 757 testbed have stressed the advantages to be gained from real-time connectivity by commercial operators, and their passengers, the technology has clear military applications. Honeywell invited a large number of senior officials from the Indian Air Force (IAF) and Indian Navy (IN) on a flight from Delhi on July 4.“We have had a good response from our aviation customers and we are in talks with Indian carriers for deployment of connected technologies, ” said Neelu Khatri, president, aerospace, Honeywell India. However, she refused to comment on the military aspect of the product.But the IAF and IN are experiencing high AOG rates with their mixed fleets of Western and Russian aircraft, and both are interested in predictive maintenance techniques as pushed by Honeywell in these demonstrations. “Predictive maintenance is of utmost importance today, ” a senior IN maintenance engineer told AIN. “Along with it goes the need for inventory management. One should be able to anticipate when a part needs to be replaced. This greatly improves serviceability and cost effectiveness, ” he added. The engineer also noted that most of the Russian legacy platforms in the Indian inventory are no longer supported by their OEMs. He did not see a problem in adding the necessary sensors for predictive maintenance to those platforms.Honeywell was displaying the fact that before the aircraft lands, engineers can identify components that will require maintenance or replacement—and ensure spare parts are available and ready for installation when it touches down. The company says that it “is improving predictive analysis by wirelessly connecting more mechanical systems. For example, capturing and analyzing aircraft data on usage and wear will enable the connected auxiliary power units, environmental control systems, and wheels and brakes to be inspected more efficiently, undergo more rapid and streamlined maintenance processes, and realize lower costs.”Other companies such as Swedish-based IFS Applications are offering military logistics solutions that enable an integrated approach to strategic planning of support, including acquisition, fleet and asset management, MRO, storage, distribution and disposal. “This is being seen increasingly as an imperative by militaries, ” a senior IFSofficial told AIN.Other technologies showcased by Honeywell on the 757 demonstration flights included a weather radar with real-time data, high-speed Ka-band Wi-Fi, and a flight preview product for accurate awareness of the runway and its surroundings.AIN Online, by Neelam Mathews 13/07/2017www.soaneemrana.orgTel: 88002287020

The branch Aeronautical is developing very much nowadays (Designing, and creating model...) not only national but especially international , and professionally, B.Tech Aeronautical and Aircraft Maintenance Engineering have a very high prestige place for those who are choosing to be in this branch because especially it is very important and useful for Government also as per as the following news (International aviation news )Boeing: T-X Offering for U.S. Air Force is 'Production Relevant.The Boeing-Saab offering for the U.S. Air Force’s T-X advanced jet trainer requirement is a “production relevant” aircraft, Boeing asserted this week. The manufacturer batted down the suggestion that its clean-sheet design will take longer to deliver to the service than competing jets based on operational models.Meeting with reporters on May 17 in St. Louis, Boeing’s T-X program manager Ted Torgerson maintained a tight grip on information about the single-engine, twin-tail, high-wing design the companies rolled out last September, declining to reveal their investment in the program, the work share with Saab or the number of flight hours flown by now two working jets. The T-X1 flew for the first time on December 20; the T-X2 flew on April 24.Asked about how many flight hours the jets have accumulated, Torgerson said only: “They have flown a lot, as many as four times in a day.” He added that Boeing has already collected what the Air Force requires for flight-test data, including time-stamped cockpit audio and video, to make the service’s June 28 deadline.Valued at $16.3 billion, the T-X program calls for 350 jets and ground-based training systems to replace the aging Northrop T-38 Talons the Air Force’s Air Education and Training Command uses for undergraduate pilot training. Following the submission of flight-test data in June, competing contractors have until late fall to make final proposal revisions. They expect the Air Force will select one jet type in December, launching the program's engineering and manufacturing development phase.The Boeing-Saab offering, powered by a GE Aviation F404-GE-402 engine, faces competition from Lockheed Martin and Korea Aerospace Industries, proposing the T-50A variant of KAI’s single-engine T-50 Golden Eagle; and Italy’s Leonardo and its U.S. subsidiary DRS Technologies, offering the T-100 variant of the twin-engine Alenia Aermacchi M-346 Master.At Lockheed Martin’s annual media day in March, executive vice president Rob Weiss said that his company if necessary could deliver the T-50A six years earlier than a clean-sheet design, saving the Air Force $1 billion it would otherwise spend on sustaining the T-38. Torgerson responded: “I have no rebuttal to that because how do they know? All I know is that we have invested to build two production jets that are ready to go…a full development program, SRR [systems requirements review], PDR [preliminary design review], CDR [critical design review] and a full flight-test program. We built two because we wanted to prove that we weren’t just a demonstrator; we have an airplane we can build repeatedly.”If the Air Force selects the T-50A, Lockheed Martin would assemble it in Greenville, South Carolina. Leonardo and DRS Technologies would assemble the T-100 in Tuskegee, Alabama. On May 15, Boeing announced that T-X assembly would take place in St. Louis, supporting 1, 800 direct and indirect jobs. Formerly the headquarters of its Defense, Space and Security Group, the greater St. Louis area is where Boeing builds the F/A-18 and F-15 fighters and the Joint Direct Attack Munition.“When you look at the skill mix of the airplanes we produce at this site, the capabilities we have at this site, the facilities we have in place; we don’t have to build anything new, we’ve got all the facilities we need right here, ” Torgerson said.AIN Aviation News19/05/2017www.soaneemrana.orgTel: 88002287020

The following new is very clear that the cooperation of both country Russia and India will create Job opportunity in both side especially in branch of B.Tech Aeronautical Engineering and Aircraft Maintenance Engineering. RUSSIA PITCHES MIG-35 TO INDIA AS FGFA PROJECT FALTERSAs the contest to supply a new fighter aircraft to the Indian Air Force (IAF) heats up, the MiG-35 has emerged as a viable candidate. India is supposedly seeking about 220 single-engine fighters to replace 11 squadrons of MiG-21/27s that entered service in the 1990s.Rosoboronexport is believed to have offered a licensed production deal for the twin-engine MiG-35 that would compensate for the IAF’s reluctance to proceed with the Indo-Russian Fifth Generation Fighter Aircraft (FGFA) project.At the MAKS 2017 airshow in July, Ilya Tarasenko, director general of Russian Aircraft Corporation MiG, said: “We are actively working with the IAF in order to win the tender.” Russia has committed to a 40-year maintenance and upgrade contract to preclude the support issues that have arisen in the past with Russian aircraft in service with the IAF. Meanwhile, also at MAKS, Sergei Chemezov, CEO of the Rostec State Corporation, told reporters that a decision on the design and development of the FGFA would be made in the “nearest future.” He did not provide a timeline for the project, a version of Russia’s Sukhoi T-50, which has been under discussion between the two countries for the past decade.According to an Indian defense official, “The MiG-35 is 25 percent cheaper [than rival candidates for the IAFrequirement]; has an AESA radar; has commonality with the fleet; and being in the light to medium category enables it to land in the same airfields that the [indigenous] Light Combat Aircraft does. If the FGFA does not go through, Russia will have to be compensated, and this is the only contract left at the moment.” If the MiG-35 is chosen, it would likely be built at the Nashik facility of Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL). Spare capacity will soon be available there, when work on Su-30MKI upgrades for the IAF is completed. India had previously indicated that the single-engine fighter should be built by a non-state owned company that would be selected as partner by the fighter supplier under the “Make In India” policy. But acting defense minister Arun Jaitley said last month while inaugurating HAL’s Light Combat Helicopter facility: “Public-sector work culture and performance have the highest standards of professionalism, ” making it clear that HAL was not ruled out of the fighter contest. (India’s first woman defense minister, former commerce minister Nirmala Sitharaman, took over from Jaitley this week and is thought to be like-minded).Lockheed Martin is expected to bid the F-16 Block 70 for the fighter contest. “The IAF needs a company that can maintain, repair and upgrade without somebody pulling the plug, ” Randall L. Howard, business development head for Lockheed Martin, told AIN. “We take a long-term view and have multiple projects in India. We do not look at India as a market, but a partnership, ” he added. The 50th C-130J Super Hercules empennage assembly is due for delivery by joint venture Tata Lockheed Martin Aerostructures on September 16.Abhay Paranjape, director of business development for Lockheed Martin in India, told AIN that following its agreement with Tata Advanced Systems to produce the F-16 Block 70 in India, his company had already identified 60 companies in India that it will shortlist to make parts for the fighter. “The U.S. administration is in full support of moving the F-16 production line to India…this will create jobs in both countries, ” he added. He also said that Lockheed Martin is encouraging the two governments “to have a conversation” for future cooperation on the F-35 stealth fighter.Saab is expected to bid the Gripen E. Transfer of technology remains a thorny issue. The Swedish company and the Adani Group announced “a collaboration on aerospace and defense” on September 4. “Saab is willing to transfer state-of-the-art technology and skills. We will focus on the capability that is critical for true indigenization including design, system integration, maintenance and upgrade, ” said Gautam Adani, chairman of the Adani Group.The Indian conglomerate is venturing into the defense arena for the first time with the Saab agreement. However, Kurt Ove Håkan Buskhe, the president and CEO of the Saab Group told AIN: “Most design and integration uses avionics software and onboard computer systems, and that is something we fully control.” AIN Online, By Neelam Mathews20/09/2017www.soaneemrana.orgTel: 88002287020

Day by day the Aeronautical Engineering is developing highly especially in Aircraft designing and giving new opportunity for job for cabin crew and as the following news:Airbus Moves to Increase Average A380 Capacity by 78 SeatsAirbus has unveiled a series of space-saving modifications for the A380 cabin that will result in room for another 78 passengers on average. Presenting the package at the April 4 to 6 Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg, Germany, the company said average four-class passenger capacity will increase from 497 to 575, allowing the A380 to generate “significantly more revenue” for operators.An 11-abreast “three-five-three” seating configuration in the airplane’s main deck economy class accounts for the most additional capacity, allowing for another 23 passengers. Meanwhile, modifications allowing for a move to eight abreast to nine abreast in premium economy accounts for another 11.However, perhaps the most revenue-generating potential lies with a new forward stairs (NFS) design that involves relocation of the forward stair from Door 1 to Door 2 and combining the entrance of the NFS to the upper deck with the adjacent staircase to the lower-deck crew rest. That modification will add another 20 seats in business, economy plus and economy.Still more business class capacity comes from the removal of upper-deck sidewall stowage, increasing wall-to-wall cabin width at foot-rest height and generating space for up to 10 more business class seats/beds in an angled herring-bone arrangement.Separately, a new aft-galley stair module (AGSM) involves the redesign of the rear stair from a spiral agreement to a straight/square one, allowing for more storage volume for galley modules on the main deck. The AGSMprovides space for 14 more revenue passengers plus two extra food trolleys.Finally, the offerings include a combined crew-rest compartment (CCRC), where designers moved down the existing flight-crew-rest (behind the cockpit in the mezzanine area at Door 1) and combined it with the cabin crew rest on the lower deck. That modification allows for another three premium economy seats in the front of the main deck. Source : AIN Online newsDassault Takes On Top of Market Up a Notch With Falcon 8XIt’s said that the margin of victory in life can sometimes be measured in in¬ches. Dassault believes that another 43 inches (109 cm) of fuselage length will help make a big difference when it comes to the Falcon 8X. Along with a string of technological advancements, the long-range, large-cabin trijet, which the company began delivering to customers last year, boasts a longer passenger cabin than its 7X predecessor. That translates into 7 percent more volume—enough to allow for a longer galley, more legroom between seats, or an optional steam shower in the aft lavatory.The added inches—and the long list of other enhancements—push the price of the 8X to nearly $60 million, making it about 10 percent more expensive than the wildly successful 7X. But because the 8X offers a lot more than just extra room, Dassault believes that a ready audience exists for the airplane: some of the more than 200 owners of the 7X and perhaps those waiting—and waiting—for the under-development Bombardier Globals as well as for the Gulfstream G650ER, which is in production but has a long backorder list. The Globals are even more expensive than the 8X, at $71 million and $75 million, respectively, as is the Gulfstream, which runs upwards of $66 million.Dassault might be right about the market for the 8X, which offers a quick way for owners of earlier models to take a step up. The aircraft has a range of 6, 450 nautical miles (with eight passengers and three crew, at Mach 0.8), 500 more than the 7X. The extra range—courtesy of an additional center-fuselage fuel tank and a lighter, redesigned wing—enables the 8X to fly nonstop from Hong Kong to London, Paris to Singapore, and Beijing to Los Angeles. The reworked wing also keeps the 8X competitive on short runways; it needs 6, 000 feet to take off fully loaded but can stop in 2, 150 feet.The Pratt & Whitney Canada PW307D engines have been optimized to offer 6, 725 pounds of thrust each, with a 5 percent thrust increase and lower emissions. Dassault claims the 8X is more fuel-efficient than other offerings in this class.And you get all manner of other goodies that weren’t available when the 7X hit the market back in 2007. Things like:• A cabin altitude of just 3, 900 feet at a cruising altitude of 41, 000 feet, ensuring that you arrive at your destination not only freshly showered but alert and refreshed. (The 8X has a service ceiling of 51, 000 feet.)• More cabin layouts. Thanks to nearly 1, 700 cubic feet of space, you can choose from more than 30 layouts in three zone configurations. Possibilities include turning the aft cabin into a media lounge with oversized divans and a pop-up monitor or making it a separate stateroom with a sliding pocket door. Mid cabin there’s also space to install a six-seat conference grouping.• More cabin windows. You get four more than on the 7X for a total of 33. That means natural light in more places.• A choice of three galley layouts, and galleys that are 25 percent larger overall. The added space means you can accommodate the larger chillers and refrigerators envisioned to service passengers on what can be 14-hour flights.• New cabin seats that are electrically assisted and eliminate the traditional mechanical cabling system for greater reliability. Full electric function seats also will be available.• A new high-definition entertainment system.• New, color-adjustable LED lighting.• A new system that increases cabin humidity by at least 20 percent.• A redesigned convertible crew rest area opposite the galley that converts into a closet when not in use.• An optional vacuum lavatory in the forward cabin. (You really want this. Think odor abatement next to the galley. Enough said.) The vacuum lav in the aft cabin remains standard.• A better cockpit. It incorporates super-comfy seats and takes styling cues from Dassault’s new 5X twinjet. And it features the new EASy 3 glass-panel digital avionics, which are built around the Honeywell Primus Epic System and the Elbit head-up display, which combines enhanced and synthetic vision.The 8X builds on the features and flight characteristics that have made the 7X popular, adding increased utility and luxury. Dassault is so convinced that this is a winning formula that it already is expanding its completion facility in Little Rock, Arkansas. That seems like a prudent move, because while the new airplane may be only a few feet longer than its predecessor, it really is miles apart.Source: AIN Online news

As always said before the development in Aeronautics is giving itself a great Job opportunity like the following new explains, it is a Job opportunity in Aeronautical Engineer:TATA, LOCKHEED MARTIN INK DEAL TO BUILD F-16 FIGHTER PLANES IN INDIADefence and aerospace company Lockheed Martin signed an agreement with Tata Advanced Systems on Monday to manufacture F-16 fighter planes in India. This will be give impetus to the US-based company to move their manufacturing unit in Fort Worth, Texas in a bid to win orders worth billions of dollars from the Indian Air Force.Both parties signed the pact at Paris Air Show to produce F-16 Block 70 fighter jets in India as part of the Make in India initiative. India is planning to replace its Soviet-era fleet of planes but Modi government has stipulated that foreign manufacturers will have to make planes in India with a local partner to help build a domestic base and reduce outright imports."F-16 production in India supports thousands of Lockheed Martin and F-16 supplier jobs in the US, creates new manufacturing jobs in India, and positions the Indian industry at the centre of the most extensive fighter aircraft supply ecosystem in the world, " said a joint statement from both companies.With Lockheed moving its manufacturing plant here, India can export F-16 planes that are flown by air forces around the world, the joint statement said."This unprecedented F-16 production partnership between the world's largest defence contractor and India's premier industrial house provides India with the opportunity to produce, operate and export F-16 Block 70 aircraft, the newest and most advanced version of the world's most successful, combat-proven multi-role fighter, " the statement said.However, with inviting companies under its Make in India bid, Modi government runs a risk of being in conflict with Donald Trump's America First campaign. The US President has been urging companies to set up industries in the United States and create jobs in the country.Moreover, the agreement comes just ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Washington already clouded with restrictive norms regarding H1-B visa and protectionist policies enacted by Trump government harming IT sector in India.Business Today in (Aviation Industry News)20/06/2017www.soaneemrana.orgTel: 88002287020

The development of ATR made it rewarded by EASA as the following new is telling:ATR GAINS EASA NOD FOR -600 COCKPIT UPGRADEThe European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has certified the Thales/ATR Standard 3 cockpit upgrade for the ATR 42-600 and ATR 72-600, the Franco-Italian airframer announced Tuesday. According to ATR, the new version of the -600 Series’ avionics will improve situational awareness and approach capabilities while offering pilots a more user-friendly interface, along with tools to optimize airlines’ operations. Standard 3 carries an RNP-AR 0.3/0.3 capability and consists of a synthetic vision system, additional high and low speed protections, and customizable checklists and databases. ATR will install Standard 3 in all new -600s starting at the end of this year. With Standard 3, the addition of an Inertial Reference System provided by Thales will allow safe operations in corridors with a 0.3 nautical mile half-width, enabling airlines to operate in more stringent conditions, notably in mountainous areas or congested traffic environments. Standard 2 offered a similar 0.3 nautical mile capacity for approach, but only 1 nautical mile for missed approaches and departures. Air New Zealand, which helped finance the development of RNP-AR 0.3/0.3, first asked ATR to look into the upgrade.ATR will also offer a synthetic vision system (SVS) in the Standard 3 avionics suite, helping with situational awareness. The manufacture calls the option a first for commercial air transport.The new avionics also include additional speed protections. When the aircraft reaches high or low speed limits, the crew receives an alert and the system activates safe guidance. In addition, ATR will offer customized capabilities such as company route databases or checklists.ATR can retrofit Standard 3 in -600s already in service through a simple software upgrade of the avionics suite. As of today, nearly 400 ATR-600s operate worldwide.Developed over the last two years, the new avionics resulted from close cooperation between ATR and Tier 1 systems integrator Thales.AIN Online, by Gregory Polek12/07/2017www.soaneemrana.orgTel: 88002287020

The following new is showing us the description of aeronautical engineers’ job:BOEING TO DELIVER MADE-IN-INDIA APACHE HELICOPTERS NEXT YEARNew Delhi: Boeing Co. will start manufacturing and handing over made in India Apache AH-64E multi-role attack helicopter fuselages from next year, the company said on Monday.India bought 22 Apaches and 15 Chinook heavy-lift helicopters worth $3 billion for the Indian Air Force (IAF) under a government-to-government deal with the US in 2015.This month it ordered six additional Apache AH-64E helicopters valued at Rs4, 168 crore for the Indian Army.Boeing will make the helicopter fuselage at Tata Advanced Systems’ Hyderabad facility which will be ready by end of the year and the fuselage will then be taken to the US for fitting before being sent to customers. While the first Apaches for Indian Air Force will be delivered in 2019 and are being built in the US and other places, the Indian Army Apache will be made locally.“We are ahead of schedule, ” said Pratyush Kumar, president of Boeing India, referring to the production with the Tata firm, said at a press briefing in the capital on Monday. Boeing has won contracts worth about $14 billion from India over the past few years, including for the supply of C17 Globemaster transport planes, Harpoon missiles, P-8 anti-submarine warfare jets, Apaches and Chinooks.In lieu of that, it has an offset obligation to source products and services worth about 30% of the contract value from India. A lot of work being undertaken by Indian firms is the result of this offset, but Boeing stresses that it is here for the long term. Marc Allen, president of Boeing International, told Mint in an interview last month that the firm was casting its “anchor deep into India” and more announcements are likely soon.The next target for Boeing is to clinch an Indian Navy deal. Boeing’s F-18, French Rafale, Swedish Saab Sea Gripen, Russian MiG-29K are contenders for a proposed $15 billion purchase of 57 fighter aircraft by the Indian Navy. Boeing expects movement on the deal by next year.“We submitted our RFI (request for information) in May and from what we understand they will evaluate the RFP (request for proposal) by end of this year and perhaps come up with RFP or EOI (expression of interest) sometime early next year, ” Boeing’s Kumar said.Boeing said it has evaluated 400 suppliers who could supply to a F-18 line that could come up in India if it wins the order. The current line in St Louis, US, will not be shut down.With respect to concerns over whether F-18s will be compatible with Indian aircraft carriers which are mostly of Russian origin, Boeing said simulations had been conducted and it was sure the planes would be able to use the carriers and with a “meaningful” weapons payload.The actual trials are still some time away.India was the world’s fifth highest defence spender in 2016 with a total expenditure of $55.9 billion, up 8.5% from the previous year, according to Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.Hindustan times e paper29/08/2017www.soaneemrana.orgTel: 88002287020
