X-47B Drone To Refuel In Flight!

The flight of Northrop Grumman’s latest “child prodigy”, X-47B unmanned drone, was first recorded in September.  You can view the video below.

It was announced on August 9, 2012 that by 2014 X47-B drone will be refueled in flight by Global Hawks which would serve as refueling tankers.

This is a huge accomplishment for two reasons.  One, is that will allow the X-47B to remain in flight well beyond 3,000 nautical miles — 10 times the ability of a traditional manned fighter.  Second, is that the entire process will be conducted with no pilot at all.

This will also mean that U.S. aircraft carries will be able to stay outside the range of reach of most ballistic missiles and submarines currently in existence.

The trials will be conducted aboard USS George Washington in 2013.

Here are a few details on X-47B drone.

ATI Offers Short Technical Course on Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS)

Worldwide government, commercial and military use of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) is anticipated to increase significantly in the future.

If you need to know more about UAS maybe you should attend the Applied Technology Institute (ATI) Unmanned Aircraft Systems and Applications course?

This one-day course is designed for engineers, aviation experts and project managers who wish to enhance their understanding of UAS. The course provides the “big picture” for those who work outside of the discipline. Each topic addresses real systems (Predator, Shadow, Global Hawk and others) and real-world problems and issues concerning the use and expansion of their applications.

Attending training courses can also put you in touch with peers in your industry affording you the opportunity to network. Networking can help you discover new industry trends, as well as new ideas and insights from others.

Our short courses are designed for individuals involved in planning, designing, building, launching, and operating space and defense systems. Whether you are a busy engineer, a technical expert or a project manager, you can enhance your understanding of complex systems in a short time. You will become aware of the basic vocabulary essential to interact meaningfully with your colleagues.

Course Outline, Samplers and Notes

But don’t take our word for it; determine for yourself the value of our UAS course before you sign up. Check out ourUAS Course Slide Samples or see a video clip about the course from the instructor at UAS on YouTube.

After attending the course you will receive a full set of detailed notes from the class for future reference, as well as a certificate of completion. Please visit our website for more valuable information.

About ATI and the Instructors

Our mission here at the Applied Technology Institute (ATI) is to provide expert training and the highest quality professional development in space, communications, defense, sonar, radar, and signal processing. We are not a one-size-fits-all educational facility. Our short classes include both introductory and advanced courses.

ATI’s instructors are world-class experts who are the best in the business. They are carefully selected for their ability to clearly explain advanced technology.

Mr. Mark N. Lewellen is the vice chair of an Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) group in the United States that is responsible for generating future UAS spectrum requirements. He is also chairman of a global UAS group that may revise the international Radio Regulations. He is an instructor for a course designed for engineers, aviation experts and project managers who wish to enhance their understanding of UAS.

He has twenty-five years of experience and has actively participated in over forty international meetings where he successfully advocated technical and regulatory issues. He is co-founder of RMT Spectrum Associates, Inc.

Mr. Lewellen teaches GPS Workshops in conjunction with several Universities. He is an active member of Toastmasters International and an excellent speaker who knows how to take command of an audience.

Dates, Times and Locations

The UAS short course is currently scheduled for:

• November 8th, 2011 in Columbia, MD

• February 28th, 2012 in Columbia, MD

Now is the time to think about bringing an ATI technical short course to your site. If there are eight or more people who are interested in a course, you save money if we bring the course to you. If you have fifteen or more students, you save over fifty percent compared to a public course.

Can You Pass the Certified Systems Engineers Professional (CSEP) Exam?

Will YOU be part of the supply?
Will YOU be part of the supply?
Video Clip: Click to Watch
Certified Systems Engineers Are In Demand

Just as you would not attempt a state bar exam without studying, you should not attempt the CSEP (Certified Systems Engineer Professional) exam without preparation. By taking a preparatory course, you can yield great benefits in performance, stress reduction and overall, greatly improve your chances of passing the exam.

While the economy is down, the demand for systems engineers is still growing — but supply is low. To assist you in your career, the Applied Technology Institute (ATI) has added a CSEP preparation course to its curriculum. Systems engineering is a profession, practice and way of doing business that concentrates on the design and application of the whole system to produce a successful product or system.

The International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) has established a Professional Certification Program to provide a formal method for recognizing the knowledge and experience of systems engineers. The INCOSE CSEP rating is a coveted milestone in the career of a systems engineer, demonstrating knowledge, education and experience and is of high value to systems organizations.

Course Outline, Samplers, and Notes

Determine for yourself the value of our course before you sign up. For example click here to see our CSEP slide samples or click here to see ATI CSEP on YouTube.

After attending the course you will receive a full set of detailed notes from the class for future reference, as well as a certificate of completion. Please visit our website for more valuable information.

About ATI and the Instructors

The instructor for this class is Eric Honour, an international consultant and lecturer, who has nearly forty year career of complex systems development & operation. He was Founder and former President of INCOSE. He has led the development of eighteen major systems, including the Air Combat Maneuvering Instrumentation systems and the Battle Group Passive Horizon Extension System.

Dates, Times and Locations

The dates and locations for our CSEP courses in 2011 are listed here:

February 11-12, 2011, Orlando, FL

March 30-31, 2011, Minneapolis, MN

September 16, 2011, Chantilly, VA

Global Hawk UAS and and the US Navy’s Broad Area Maritime Surveillance (BAMS) system

ATI teaches courses on unmanned aerial surveillance system (UAS). ATIcourses posts interesting updates on UAS systems.

UASCOMMON ‘GLOBAL HAWK’ EFFORT: US Air Force Chief of Staff General Norton Schwartz, & US Chief of Naval Operations, Admiral Gary Roughead, signed 12 June a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA seeking to maximize commonality, eliminate redundant effort and increase interoperability between the Air Force’s RQ-4 ‘Global Hawk’ high latitude/long endurance (HALE) unmanned aerial surveillance system (UAS), and the US Navy’s Broad Area Maritime Surveillance (BAMS) system, which utilizes the same UAS platform. The MoA directs specific actions to achieve an integrated training, maintenance and operational approach based on platform similarities, and directs the establishment of a Synergies Working Group to identify basing, personnel, aircraft C2, logistics, and data requirements commonalities. Initial operating capability for forward-deployed, land-based, remotely-operated BAMS units is scheduled for 2015. The ‘Global Hawk’ platform has previously been advanced as the most logical solution to the Australia’s project Air 7000/1B requirements.
