Fokker Elmo, a division of Stork Aerospace, has officially opened its new wiring systems facility during the Global Aerospace Conference currently taking place in Izmir and in the presence of Defence Undersecretary Bayar. The facility, which was announced in Ankara one year ago is located in the Aegean Free Zone in Izmir and will manufacture aircraft and aircraft engine wiring systems for Fokker Elmo customers such as Boeing, EADS/Airbus, Lockheed Martin and Agusta-Westland. The new facility is now AS9100 certified and is starting customer deliveries. The operation is expected to grow to 300- 500 employees within five years. The Aegean Free Zone in Izmir was chosen because of the good conditions that exist for international companies in terms of business development, human resources, and environment. Also the support from the Under Secretariat for Defence (SSM) has been a stimulating factor for the establishment of this long term operation in Turkey. Fokker Elmo customers Boeing, EADS/Airbus and Lockheed Martin were closely involved and supportive from the start of this project.

A team from BAE Systems has developed a much-needed capability for use on the front line - a compact mortar-based launcher for small Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAVs). UAVs provide front line units with vital real-time intelligence without the need for conventional air support. Until now, the ability to rapidly deploy these platforms by individual Platoons has been limited to very small systems (typically weighing 3-5 kg) which have limited capability. More capable UAVs have not been suitable due to a need to use large, cumbersome catapult or rocket-based launchers. The new device, developed under a programme code-named 'Project Artful', is simple, easy to use, and portable. It allows UAVs of up to 25 kg in weight to be paired with a mortar-based launch mechanism, which has European and world-wide patents pending. This makes it possible for individual front line units to rapidly deploy such systems, significantly enhancing their operational effectiveness.

Honeywell has been selected to provide the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory with a mini momentum control system for space missions. The system will include four control momentum gyroscopes, space hardened electronics, a vibration isolation system, and a Plug-and-Play interface. "Honeywell's mini momentum control system saves up to 30 percent of weight over larger systems and is about 50 percent smaller," said Dave Douglass, Vice President, Honeywell Space.  "It also produces less vibration, a critical factor for satellites with precision payloads.  It easily integrates with other materials and systems on the satellite, and is scheduled for delivery in 2010." Faster maneuverability and precision is becoming more and more critical as satellites provide data relay and connectivity for commercial uses including the cellular phone industry, satellite TV, and other consumer services.  In addition, military and defense programs are utilizing smaller satellites for more responsive missions.

During the Aviation Summit organised by the French EU Presidency, François Gayet, Secretary General of ASD (AeroSpace and Defence Industries Association of Europe), said that important R&D investments were required for the implementation of an efficient air traffic management (ATM) system in Europe. This means that the manufacturing industry should continue to play a central role in SESAR, the Single European Sky ATM research project, Mr Gayet insisted. Creating a sustainable and better-performing ATM system in Europe requires that major technological breakthroughs and system innovations should be achieved in the medium to long-term future. These include the introduction of a new generation of cockpit systems allowing the aircraft to become an active part of the ATM system, and that of a new generation of ground-based air traffic control systems able to manage a greater number of aircrafts. A new ATM system also calls for the generalization of navigation through high-precision satellite, as well as the development of new means of communication and surveillance. All these developments require a major R&D effort, François Gayet underlined. This effort corresponds to 50 % of the budget of the SESAR development phase, he continued, before emphasising that the aerospace industry is ready to align its R&D roadmaps and investments with SESARs requirements. However, Mr Gayet deplored the fact that the current versions of SESARs work programme and funding scheme are not conducive to an adequate involvement of the manufacturing industry. There is a risk of a significant downsizing of the industrial component of the work programme, he said. What is stake is no less than the capacity of SESAR to deliver the required technologies and systems, Mr Gayet concluded.

Astronauts Heidemarie Stefanyshyn-Piper and Steve Bowen completed the first of four spacewalks scheduled for Endeavours mission to the International Space Station on 18 November. The spacewalk was the 115th in support of ISS construction. Piper and Bowen began the spacewalk at 12:09 p.m. CST and ended it at 7:01 p.m. They spent six hours and 52 minutes outside the station working on several tasks, including removing a depleted nitrogen tank from a stowage platform on the outside of the complex and moving it into Endeavours cargo bay. They also moved a flex hose rotary coupler from the shuttle to the station stowage platform, as well as removing some insulation blankets from the common berthing mechanism on the Kibo laboratory. The majority of the spacewalk was spent focusing on one of the stations Solar Alpha Rotary Joints (SARJ). These joints are the large, circular devices that allow the complexs solar arrays to automatically rotate and track the sun as the station orbits the Earth. Piper and Bowen worked to clean and lubricate part of the joint and to remove two of the joints 12 trundle bearing assemblies. This work will continue during the rest of the missions scheduled spacewalks. About halfway into the spacewalk, one of the grease guns that Piper was preparing to use on the SARJ released some Braycote grease into her crew lock bag, which is the tool bag the spacewalkers use during their activities. As she was cleaning the inside of the bag, it drifted away from her and toward the aft and starboard portion of the International Space Station. Inside the bag were two grease guns, scrapers, several wipes and tethers and some tool caddies. Piper and Bowen spent the remainder of the spacewalk sharing a duplicate set of tools from the other crew lock bag they had with them. The next spacewalk of the mission will take place on Thursday, which will be the 10th anniversary of the launch of the first element of the station, the Zarya module. Building on Tuesdays spacewalk experience, Heide Stefanyshyn-Piper and Shane Kimbrough headed out of the International Space Stations Quest Airlock at 11:58 a.m. CST to continue the process of removing debris around the starboard Solar Alpha Rotary Joint (SARJ) and applying lubrication in an effort to eventually restore it to full functionality. The EVA ended at 6:43 p.m. for a total time of six hours and 45 minutes. As the spacewalkers were finishing up their activities, ground controllers noticed that Kimbroughs carbon dioxide levels were increasing, so he made his way back to the airlock a few minutes ahead of Piper. Piper and Kimbrough began the second spacewalk by relocating two equipment carts in preparation for Februarys installation of the final pair of solar arrays. Once that task was completed, the two applied lubrication to a balky snare on the end of the stations robotic arm before concentrating on repair of the rotary joint designed to automatically track the sun as the station circles the Earth. The balance of the spacewalk was focused on replacing four more of the 12 trundle bearing assemblies (TBA). One of them was over-torqued during installation, so Piper installed one of the two back-up TBAs instead.

Flames shot more than 100 feet high in a successful 5.5-second ground test firing Thursday, Nov. 20, of a launch abort motor for NASA's next generation spacecraft, the Orion crew exploration vehicle. NASA and the Orion industry team conducted the firing at the Alliant Techsystems, or ATK, facility in Promontory, Utah. The abort motor will provide a half-million pounds of thrust to lift the crew module off the Ares I rocket, pulling the crew away safely in the event of an emergency on the launch pad or during the first 300,000 feet of the rocket's climb to orbit. Thursday's firing was the first time a motor with reverse flow propulsion technology at this scale has been tested. It also is the first test of its kind since the beginning of the Apollo Program.
