Aerostat System Capable of carrying Electro-Optic and COMINT payloads for Surveillance - DRDO




DRDO Demonstrates Indigenous Aerostat System

   The DRDO demonstrated its indigenously designed and developed aerostat system capable of carrying electro-optic and COMINT payloads for surveillance. Trials of the system have been concluded on Saturday, December 25, 2010. These included surveillance all over Agra and interception of variety of communications. ELINT and RADAR payloads are also being developed indigenously. This platform is a result of development of a number of high end technologies in the field of aerodynamic design of balloon, fabrics, fabrication, hydraulic winch, electro-optic tether, high pressure helium cylinder manifold, active pressure control system etc in association with large and medium sized Industrial partners.

The system has been designed, developed and integrated by the Aerial Delivery Research & Development Establishment (ADRDE), Agra Cantt, a premier laboratory under the Defence Research & Development Organization (DRDO) working in the field of parachutes, lighter than air systems, floatation systems and aircraft arrester barriers. ADRDE has developed and supplied various types of parachutes for wide range of applications viz. Paradropping men, weapons, Combat Vehicles, Stores etc, braking of fighter Aircraft and Recovery of payloads pertaining to missiles, UAV and space missions. Over the last few years, ADRDE has diversified into the field of lighter-than-Air (LTA) technologies and developed small and medium size Aerostats. Recently, ADRDE has developed a state-of-the-art medium size helium filled Aerostat and successfully test flown up to one km altitude at Agra.

Dr. Prahlada, DS & CC R&D (Aerospace & Services Interaction) congratulated the team and brought out the facts that ADRDE had graduated from a laboratory designing and developing balloons, parachutes and heavy air-drop systems to developing systems of systems. The complete balloons systems, ground based command and control systems, and payloads have been integrated for full exploitation. The gimbals, with 360 degree azimuth freedom and high degree freedom in elevation is highly stabilized and can carry out steering, scanning and tracking with high precision. The payload also carries thermal camera for surveillance during night and in low visibility condition. The electronic intelligence payload carries a communication intelligence system for capturing and analyzing all types of communications in air. 

Health monitoring of aerostat and simultaneous command and controlling of payload from ground control station has been demonstrated. The system will be useful for three services, paramilitary forces as well as have civilian applications including disaster management. This milestone comes in the wake of new generation high altitude aerostats/airships that will be developed by DRDO.

Aircraft Maintenance | Aeronautical Engineering Education in EMIRATES AVIATION COLLEGES




Aviation Studies U.A.E and how loads of Aerospace | Aeronautical Engineering graduates are still without jobs?

The leading aviation colleges in the Middle East

Job in Emirates Airlines Facts:

Most of the aviation maintenance students dream to be part of the emirates airlines.

But getting a job into Arab airlines is not an easy task, in some cases emirates airlines do help you but there is no guarantee.

It is the situation that no one wants to take an inexperienced aircraft maintenance students in U.A.E before an after recession.

The aviation maintenance/airline companies are looking for an individual who would pick up his tools and start working like a “professional Maintenance Engineer” but all the experience we get back here is sheet metal, wire locking and in "wheels and brakes".

The situation has always been similar for every aircraft maintenance engineering students.

What comes to your mind when you read airline/maintenance company's name? are they part of Emirates groups ?

1) Air Arabia: A “low cost” carrier based in Sharjah the Manager said, "we are a low cost airline and we do not have time nor the money to train new trainee's”. Now  they are charging 820 $ for a month of OJT, they charging students to work for them and even this training wont help you get a job either.

2) Emirates Airlines: They are the only company, which has taken students once a while but to score a job or get OJT you need to have influence.

3) ADAT: Similar situation, to score a job or get OJT you need to have influence.

4) Etihad Airlines: Engineering operations are carried out by ADAT.

5) Fly Dubai: Engineering operations are carried out by Emirates engineering.

6) Jet Aviation: Caries out no OJT training programs (neither is interested) and to get a job you need to have a minimum of five years of working experience.

7) ExecuJet: Caries out no OJT programs (neither is interested) and to get a job you need to have a minimum of five years of working experience.

8) Dolphin Air: Caries out no OJT programs (neither is interested) and to get a job you need to have a minimum of five years of working experience.

9) Ave Air- Caries out no OJT programs (neither is interested) and to get a job you need to have a minimum of five years of working experience.

10) Royal Air wing: Will never employ a fresh graduate.

11) Airbus Middle East: “Go on the website and check, they do not carry out such engineering apprenticeship maintenance programs . In U.A.E and Airbus Middle East only hire from Europe.

12) Boeing Middle East : They also do not carry out such programs In U.A.E and they only hire from U.S.A.

13) Aerovista, Air Cess, Al Jaber Aviation, Al Rais Cargo, Eastern SkyJets, Falcon Aviation Services, Falcon Express Cargo Airlines, Kang Pacific Airlines, Maximus Air Cargo, Midex Airlines, Palm Aviation, Royal Jet, SkyLink Arabia and Western Aviation.

All these airlines have the similar situations they have 3rd party maintenance by companies mentioned above or similar OJT and job conditions which are not very graduate friendly.

The thing i have shared with you is the condition of a Aerospace Engineering Graduates career situation in U.A.E and how loads of aircraft maintenance engineer graduates are still without jobs.

Kingfisher is the first Indian carrier to have placed orders for the world's largest Aircraft, A-380s




Vijay Mallya's Kingfisher Airlines placed orders to purchase 50 wide-bodied and single-aisle aircraft from the European consortium Airbus Industrie worth billions of dollars.

The deal was signed at the ongoing Paris Airshow by the UB Group Chairman himself and Airbus COO John Leahy on Wednesday, according to an Airbus spokesperson. The agreement is for the purchase of 15 A350-800 XWBs (extended wide-bodied), ten A330-200s, five A340-500s and 20 aircraft from the A320 family, that is A-318s, A-319s, A-320s and A-321s. Kingfisher is the first Indian carrier to have placed orders for the world's largest aircraft, A-380s. It will purchase five of these planes which are expected to be delivered by 2011-12. After signing the deal at the Le Bourget airport, Mallya said his airline's strategy was to open ‘new long haul routes and expand existing ones’. "With the A340-500 and then the A350 XWB, we will be able to offer direct routes between India and the US for example.

The A330 will allow us to expand services to Europe and the A320s will help us meet demand in our home region", he said. Kingfisher is yet to be permitted by the government to operate globally as it has not completed the mandatory five years of domestic operations, though it satisfies the other condition for international operations of having a 20-aircraft fleet.

This signifies better aviation job opportunities and growth of  aircraft maintenance engineering job vacancies.

Aircraft Engine Maintenance 3-Spool-Engine Concepts


What is triple spool design on the RB211? what are the advantages/disadvantages?

A 3 spool engine is one that has three sets of compressors before the combustor and three sets of turbines behind it.

A spool is made up of a compressor and a corresponding turbine used to extract the power from the exhaust gasses to turn the compressor.

Each spool is given a name. N1, N2, and N3. N1 is the large fan section in front of the engine. N2 is the low pressure compressor section. And N3 is the high pressure compressor section. Some engines incorporate N2 And N3 into one rotating mass and call it N2. Hence the double spool engine.

Each section of the compressor wants to rotate at it's own speed, and if allowed to do so as in a triple spool engine, it is able to operate more efficiently. It can turn at it's optimum speed, and not have to compromise between the optimum speed for the N2 and N3 sections when attached in the double spool engine.

All modern engine have 2 sets of compressors (HP and LP) and a fan section providing a vast majority of the thrust.

In a 2 spool motor the HP section and the LP section are joined. The number of spools in an engine tells how many sets of compressor blades and corresponding sets of turbine blades the engine has. A single spool engine has one set of each, a double spool engine has two sets of each, and a triple spool engine has three sets of each.

3 Spool Engine advantages and disadvantages:
  • More sets of blades results in a greater engine weight, but the corresponding increase in thrust possible more than offsets the weight increase.
The drawbacks of a 3 spool engine are increased weight, complexity, and cost to purchase and overhaul, but they are the most efficient engine flying.

Aero Engine Triple Spool Design minimize Engine Surges is the majar advantage of 3 Spool Concept




Major advantage of triple spool design is it's ability to minimize engine surges thus they are the most efficient engine flying.

As mentioned by JETPILOT, namely that the more spools you have, the better because then they will be allowed to spin at their own speed given their spool mass.

Let's say you're at takeoff power with for example a double spool engine. The heavy N1 spool is turning at it's own RPM and so is the lighter N2. Now you chop off the power. The lighter N2 will drop in RPM much quicker then the heavy N1 with it's huge fan. So what happens is that the N1 compressors are feeding way too much air to the second (HP) compressor.

Where is all that excess air gonna go ?
Well in extreme cases you can have a very damaging engine surge in which air will flow in the wrong way through the engine. Most of todays engines have very sophisticated computer controlled "bypass doors" that let the air escape from the compressor casing.
But the chance of engine surges always remains. If you have three spools, the weight difference is spread over 3 spools thus drastically reducing the chance of engine surges.

Tips for Proper Aircraft Tire Maintenance - Goodyear Expert




Aircraft tire/wheel assemblies can lose up to 5 percent of their pressure each day.
When it comes to aircraft tire maintenance, few people in the industry have visited more hangars and seen all manner of service work and maintenance procedures than Goodyear Aviation’s Rob Robson.

Robson is a Product Support Manager for The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, and for more than 10 years he’s been immersed in aircraft tire product support for everything from piston singles to helicopters and fighter jets.

By his own count, Robson has witnessed numerous aircraft tire maintenance procedures and has inspected hundreds of worn tires. He has seen firsthand the ill effects of improper maintenance. As a result, Robson can offer valuable advice for those who wish to better understand how proper aircraft tire maintenance can help to deliver more landings.

The most important factor of any aircraft tire maintenance program is maintaining proper inflation pressure. 
According to Robson, the problems created by incorrect inflation can be severe. Over inflation often leads to uneven tread wear and reduced traction, makes the tread more susceptible to cutting, and places greater stress on aircraft wheels. Under inflation creates faster tread wear on the shoulders, damages the tire’s innerliner, and greatly increases the stress and flex heating in the tire that can lead to tire failure.
 “Because aircraft tire/wheel assemblies can lose up to 5 percent of their pressure each day, they need to be checked daily, or before each flight, with a calibrated pressure gauge when the tire is at ambient temperature (not heated by taxiing). Any tire that’s been run more than 10 percent underinflated should be removed from service,” Robson said. The industry veteran also recommends filling tubeless assemblies with nitrogen instead of air because it’s dry and non-combustible.

Another key area of aircraft tire maintenance:
  • Lookout for no harmful chemicals are used or spilled on the tires. 
  • Keep hangar floors clean of all debris to avoid foreign object damage to the tires. 
  • It is also important to inspect the tires closely, in addition to checking tire pressure, during pre-flights to check for any damage to the tires from service.

History of Aviation: Leonardo da Vinci made the First Real Studies of Flight in the 1480's - The Ornithopter




1485 Leonardo da Vinci - The Ornithopter

Leonardo da Vinci made the first real studies of flight in the 1480's. He had over 100 drawings that illustrated his theories on flight.
Leonardo da Vinci's Ornithopter
The Ornithopter flying machine was never actually created. It was a design that Leonardo da Vinci created to show how man could fly. The modern day helicopter is based on this concept.

Early Efforts of Flight

Around 400 BC – China
The discovery of the kite that could fly in the air by the Chinese started humans thinking about flying. Kites were used by the Chinese in religious ceremonies. They built many colorful kites for fun, also. More sophisticated kites were used to test weather conditions. Kites have been important to the invention of flight as they were the forerunner to balloons and gliders.

Humans try to fly like birds
For many centuries, humans have tried to fly just like the birds. Wings made of feathers or light weight wood have been attached to arms to test their ability to fly. The results were often disastrous as the muscles of the human arms are not like a birds and can not move with the strength of a bird.

Hero and the Aeolipile
Aeolipile The ancient Greek engineer, Hero of Alexandria, worked with air pressure and steam to create sources of power. One experiment that he developed was the aeolipile which used jets of steam to create rotary motion.
Hero mounted a sphere on top of a water kettle. A fire below the kettle turned the water into steam, and the gas traveled through pipes to the sphere. Two L-shaped tubes on opposite sides of the sphere allowed the gas to escape, which gave a thrust to the sphere that caused it to rotate.

Joseph and Jacques Montgolfier- the First Hot Air Balloon -1783
The brothers, Joseph Michel and Jacques Etienne Montgolfier, were inventors of the first hot air balloon. They used the smoke from a fire to blow hot air into a silk bag. The silk bag was attached to a basket. The hot air then rose and allowed the balloon to be lighter-than-air.

In 1783, the first passengers in the colorful balloon were a sheep, rooster and duck. It climbed to a height of about 6,000 feet and traveled more than 1 mile. After this first success, the brothers began to send men up in balloons. The first manned flight was on November 21, 1783, the passengers were Jean-Francois Pilatre de Rozier and Francois Laurent.

George Cayley - 1799 - 1850's
Over 50 years he made improvements to the gliders. He changed the shape of the wings so that the air would flow over the wings correctly. He designed a tail for the gliders to help with the stability. He tried a biplane design to add strength to the glider. He also recognized that there would be a need for power if the flight was to be in the air for a long time.
George Cayley worked to discover a way that man could fly. He designed many different versions of gliders that used the movements of the body to control. A young boy, whose name is not known, was the first to fly one of his gliders.

19th And 20th Century Efforts
Otto Lilienthal 1891
German engineer, Otto Lilienthal, studied aerodynamics and worked to design a glider that would fly. He was the first person to design a glider that could fly a person and was able to fly long distances.

He was fascinated by the idea of flight. Based on his studies of birds and how they fly, he wrote a book on aerodynamics that was published in 1889 and this text was used by the Wright Brothers as the basis for their designs.After more than 2500 flights, he was killed when he lost control because of a sudden strong wind and crashed into the ground.

Samuel P. Langley 1891
Samuel Langley was an astronomer, who realized that power was needed to help man fly. He built a model of a plane, which he called an aerodrome, that included a steam-powered engine. In 1891, his model flew for 3/4s of a mile before running out of fuel.

Langley received a $50,000 grant to build a full sized aerodrome. It was too heavy to fly and it crashed. He was very disappointed. He gave up trying to fly. His major contributions to flight involved attempts at adding a power plant to a glider. He was also well known as the director of the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC

Orville and Wilbur Wright and the First Flight 1903
Orville and Wilbur Wright were very deliberate in their quest for flight. First, they spent many years learning about all the early developments of flight. They completed detailed research of what other early inventors had done. They read all the literature that was published up to that time. Then, they began to test the early theories with balloons and kites. They learned about how the wind would help with the flight and how it could affect the surfaces once up in the air.
The next step was to test the shapes of gliders much like George Cayley did when he was testing the many different shapes that would fly. They spent much time testing and learning about how gliders could be controlled.

They designed and used a wind tunnel to test the shapes of the wings and the tails of the gliders. After they found a glider shape that consistently would fly in the tests in the North Carolina Outer Banks dunes, then they turned their attention to how to create a propulsion system that would create the lift needed to fly.
The early engine that they used generated almost 12 horsepower.

The Wright Brother's Flyer
The "Flyer" lifted from level ground to the north of Big Kill Devil Hill, at 10:35 a.m., on December 17, 1903. Orville piloted the plane which weighed six hundred and five pounds..

Actual Flight of The Flyer at Kitty Hawk
The first heavier-than-air flight traveled one hundred twenty feet in twelve seconds. The two brothers took turns during the test flights. It was Orville's turn to test the plane, so he is the brother that is credited with the first flight.

Humankind was now able to fly! During the next century, many new airplanes and engines were developed to help transport people, luggage, cargo, military personnel and weapons. The 20th century's advances were all based on this first flight at Kitty Hawk by the American Brothers from Ohio.

Must See Aviation Movies: Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines




Men and Flying Machines-Tom Cruise
 Recently i watched the movie Top Gun starring Global Hero Tom Cruise and Kelly McGillis. The film delivered excellent sound track- "Take My Breath Away" in the opening is superb. Definitely a film best seen on big screen with 70mm and DTS sound. After watching movie i felt Top Gun is the best aviation movie ever made in terms of the actual flying sequences(aerial photography and real dog fighting scenes)

Further, an interest occupied in me to collect great aviation movies made on Men and Flying Machines. And guys, here is the list of movies on aviation worth to spend time and as being in aviation industry i feel that one should watch these best aviation movies ever made.

Watching is Believing it!

Coincidence: the airplane and the motion picture came into their own existence at nearly the same period of time. The Wright Flyer December 7,1903, Kitty Hawk,NC

"Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines" (1965): The movie nicely convey just how magnificent flying truly was in the first decade of flight. beautiful scenery. early flying machines.

"Wings" (1927): Wings was awarded the first-ever Best Motion Picture Oscar in 1929. In the movie we can see a few World War I aircraft, including a Spad VII, a Fokker D.VII and an S.E.5a, also make appearances. Terrific flight sequences.

"Only Angels Have Wings" (1930): Daredevil spirit of the South American mail pilots of the 1930s.

"Spirit of St Louis" : Watch "The poetry & romance of aviation."

"Twelve O'clock High" (1949): Twelve O'clock High is of course about leadership and command more than it is about airplanes.

"Strategic Air Command" (1955): The aerial shots of the Convair B-36 and Boeing B-47 in Strategic Air Command are perhaps the most beautiful ever filmed.

"The Edge": Shots gorgeous flying in snowy peaks,music lilting score. Eye catching Stunning crash sequence."

"The Blue Max" (1966): The title of this film comes from the British nickname for the German medal awarded to First World War aces who scored a minimum of 20 ‘kills’.The Blue Max, the first (to my knowledge) WWI aviation film made in color.

"Battle of Britain" (1969): This film has collected together the greatest collection of Second World War aircraft ever marshalled for a movie.Great efforts were made to ensure that the film was authentic and real.

"No Highway In The Sky": Intellectual plotted suspense story on metal fatigue. Stewart and Deitrich keep it pleasurable to watch."

"The Bridges at Toko-Ri" (1954): A few films were made on the Korean war one to list is "Toko-Ri", was the first movie about the air war, followed four years later by "The Hunters".

“The Great Waldo Pepper” (1975): Great movie with great title even greater flying stunts. A tale of an American First World War pilot. Very watchable fun and excitement.

Below are my personal favorite Aviation Movies:

"October Sky": "A truly amazing movie". Lacking of inspiration? down and beaten hard? Then this is the movie you should and must watch for. Full of spirit, uplifting your emotions, very motivating and make feel to purse your dreams come true. Four high school students who taught themselves to build and fly real rockets.

"Top Gun": This movie is visual treat to watch.

"The Aviator": Leonard DiCaprio who here has the most challenging role of his career.This movie conveys the adrenalin excitement and social transformation of modern aviation.

"Pearl Harbor": "Pearl Harbor" cost $135M - and special effects have become breathtaking - Industrial Light & Magic once again produce visual miracles.

"Behind Enemy Lines"
: There are terrifically atmospheric shots of the aircraft carrier that is the crew’s base and some really exciting film of the F-18 Hornet that is their ‘mount’.

“Black Hawk Down” (2001): The film is a celebration of comradeship and heroism. Never have I seen a film which demonstrates so effectively the way combat troops and helicopters can be integrated as a fighting force.

“Flyboys”
: Worthy and entertaining film. World War One before the USA eventually entered the war.

"Flight of the Phoenix": After a plane crash in the Mongolian desert, survivors work together to build a new plane.

Hope, the collection of movies were encouraging and are pleasurable to watch.
If any, Please suggest your favorite aviation movies.

Is Aeronautical Engineering is a Branch of Aerospace Engineering? Do you know First Airplane was designed by a Pair of Bicycle Makers?




What is Aeronautical Engineering?
Aeronautical Engineering is a sub-branch of aerospace engineering. Though few people often interchange these two terms. Basically aeronautical involve activity of designing, developing and constructing of machine planes that can fly, as commonly know by aircraft.

The aeronautical engineers primarily responsible for creation of safer and more energy efficient economical methods for travelling including aircraft, helicopters, satellites, missiles and spacecrafts.
These includes science of propulsion and aerodynamics, even it covers the development and selection of materials and equipment that are utilized in aircraft.

Aero Engineer's are part of the designing process to make the fastest vehicle. Eg: Airplanes that weighs over a million pounds can ease into the air and spacecraft travels 17.000 miles an hour.

What do Aeronautical Engineers do?
Aero engineers bring concept into reality by emphasising on the design of aerofoils(wings). Propulsion is another aspect in aeronautical engineering. The force of propulsion helps an airplane to remain in flight, and encompasses the design and development of engines. These two basic principles are considered when choice of material for aircraft design, strenght and weight. Selection of material is a crucial area of specialization for the aeronautical engineering
