  2. The 737 is at least one generation further along than is should be. The systems are being stretch beyond their limits but a "just make it work" approach. The aircraft is makeup on a pig but the mascara is starting to run. It is outdated and needs to be replaced with a clean slate design.
  3. One would think that all of the flight control software would have been provided to CAE to simulate the function as expected on the aircraft. Likely that functionality is simulated but the failure mode is not. If the simulator behaviour deviates from tha tof the actual aircraft, how can Cat D be supported?

  18. Remote datalink control has a lot of public appeal but is not really an option for this kind of operation. Recent jamming, spoofing and outages of GPS affecting RNP are just one reminder that any worldwide datalink or satellite based solution relies, in the end, on good will from the US and Russia. That is increasingly fragile. Then, of course, there is hacking. Current encryption techniques will be solvable by commercially available computers within a decade. What then? Drone operations are, but their nature, expendable. High cost and undesired, but the reason drones are used often has as much to do with risk as cost. There are also many restrictions on autonomous drone flight over 'populated areas' (where the population are comprised of allies). To be clear, this is not about the capability of the technology when it works. SpaceX, through their recoveries at sea, has demonstrated far more than is needed for a commercial operation. The kicker is what happens to a planeload of passengers, or the subdivision they are flying over, on the bad day when a few things go wrong and the assumptions behind the autonomy aren't met. Vs

  22. Perhaps the solution to breathing on the moon as well as creating an industry producing metals ESA opens oxygen plant - making air out of moondust by Staff Writers Noordwijk, The Netherlands (SPX) Jan 20, 2020 ESA research fellow Alexandre Meurisse and Beth Lomax of the University of Glasgow producing oxygen and metal out of simulated moondust inside ESA's Materials and Electrical Components Laboratory. A prototype oxygen plant has been set up in the Materials and Electrical Components Laboratory of the European Space Research and Technology Centre, ESTEC, based in Noordwijk in the Netherlands. "Having our own facility allows us to focus on oxygen production, measuring it with a mass spectrometer as it is extracted from the regolith simulant," Beth Lomax of the University of Glasgow, whose PhD work is being supported through ESA's Networking and Partnering Initiative, harnessing advanced academic research for space applications. "Being able to acquire oxygen from resources found on the Moon would obviously be hugely useful for future lunar settlers, both for breathing and in the local production of rocket fuel." ESA research fellow Alexandre Meurisse adds: "And now we have the facility in operation we can look into fine-tuning it, for instance by reducing the operating temperature, eventually designing a version of this system that could one day fly to the Moon to be operated there." Samples returned from the lunar surface confirm that lunar regolith is made up of 40-45% percent oxygen by weight, its single most abundant element. But this oxygen is bound up chemically as oxides in the form of minerals or glass, so is unavailable for immediate use. ESTEC's oxygen extraction is taking place using a method called molten salt electrolysis, involving placing regolith in a metal basket with molten calcium chloride salt to serve as an electrolyte, heated to 950 C. At this temperature the regolith remains solid. But passing a current through it causes the oxygen to be extracted from the regolith and migrate across the salt to be collected at an anode. As a bonus this process also converts the regolith into usable metal alloys. In fact this molten salt electrolysis method was developed by UK company Metalysis for commercial metal and alloy production. Beth's PhD involved working at the company to study the process before recreating it at ESTEC. "At Metalysis, oxygen produced by the process is an unwanted by-product and is instead released as carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide, which means the reactors are not designed to withstand oxygen gas itself," explains Beth. "So we had to redesign the ESTEC version to be able to have the oxygen available to measure. The lab team was very helpful in getting it installed and operating safely." The oxygen plant runs silently, with the oxygen produced in the process is vented into an exhaust pipe for now, but will be stored after future upgrades of the system. "The production process leaves behind a tangle of different metals," adds Alexandre, "and this is another useful line of research, to see what are the most useful alloys that could be produced from them, and what kind of applications could they be put to. "Could they be 3D printed directly, for example, or would they require refining? The precise combination of metals will depend on where on the Moon the regolith is acquired from - there would be significant regional differences." The ultimate aim would be to design a 'pilot plant' that could operate sustainably on the Moon, with the first technology demonstration targeted for the mid-2020s. "ESA and NASA are heading back to the Moon with crewed missions, this time with a view towards staying," says Tommaso Ghidini, Head of ESA's Structures, Mechanisms and Materials Division. "Accordingly we're shifting our engineering approach to a systematic use of lunar resources in-situ.We are working with our colleagues in the Human and Robotics Exploration Directorate, European industry and academia to provide top class scientific approaches and key enabling technologies like this one, towards a sustained human presence on the Moon and maybe one day Mars."
  23. Strategy South African Airways to sell nine A340s as part of restructuring effort By Cirium16 January 2020 South African Airways has put more than half of its Airbus A340 fleet and a variety of spare parts up for sale, as part of efforts to restructure following the carrier’s decision last month to voluntarily enter business rescue proceedings. In a tender notice published on its website, SAA announces the sale of nine A340-300/600 aircraft, 15 aircraft engines – including CFM International CFM56s and Rolls-Royce Trent 500s – and four auxiliary power units (APUs). Source: Julian Herzog/Creative Commons South African Airways A340 Cirium fleets data shows that the airline operates a fleet of seven A340-300s and seven A340-600s. SAA also operates five A330-300s, three A350-900s, 10 A320s, seven A319s and two Boeing 737-300s. The ailing flag carrier entered voluntary business rescue after filing with the Companies and Intellectual Property Commission on 5 December. Les Matuson – director of Johannesburg-based advisory and turnaround specialist Matuson Associates – has been appointed to oversee restructuring. It was disclosed last month that SAA would receive R4 billion ($273 million) in funding to help with its restructuring. Half of the funds will come from existing lenders, guaranteed by the South African government, and the other half will be provided by the country’s treasury. SAA has been facing the prospect of drastic action as a result of a lack of progress with its turnaround programme, management upheaval, and – most recently – operational disruption from industrial action.
