The internet protocol- (IP) capable, very high frequency (VHF) ground-to-air equipment will be provided for a period of five years.The T6 VHF radios will accommodate a number of upcoming air traffic communication service expansions, network changes and relocations. They will also integrate with Airservices OneSKY Australia program, one of the most complex transformations of air traffic management in aviation history, to align civil and military aviation needs.The primary demand for the project is to migrate to an IP-based network structure, supporting voice over internet protocol (VoIP) to the ED137 standard. Ideal for the varied and immense Australian environment, Park Air successfully offered the T6 VHF equipment from its Sapphire portfolio, providing powerful IP capability, small form factor and low maintenance requirements.As one of the largest countries in the world, Australia has some very remote locations, which can take up to three days to reach by car.

Built to enable alerts and intelligence to a network configuration, as well as diagnostics, the MARC server provides important assurance when dealing with a nationwide installation.Northrop Grumman Park Air Systems supplies communication systems for airspace operations worldwide. Sapphire ATM communications systems are now installed in more than 50 countries, helping air navigation service providers transitioning into the digital future.last_img read more

Q&A | Stoops still listing Boom as doubtful

first_imgKentucky head coach Mark Stoops made his weekly appearance on the SEC teleconference Wednesday. You can read a full transcript of his comments below:Kentucky Coach Mark Stoops looks at the scoreboard in the first half against Tennessee Saturday night at Commonwealth Stadium in Lexington. (October 31, 2015)Kentucky Coach Mark Stoops looks at the scoreboard in the first half against Tennessee Saturday night at Commonwealth Stadium in Lexington. (October 31, 2015)Opening statement: “Looking forward to another great challenge, going on the road to play Georgia in Athens. It will be a real challenge for us. Certainly our team is in great need to go on the road and play a very good football game, better than we have the past couple of weeks. Disappointed in the outcome this past week versus Tennessee, but we’ve had a great week of practice so far and looking forward to finishing up this week and, like I said, getting on the road, going down there and playing well.”On the performance offensive line as a whole: “Yeah, it’s hard for us when we get behind the chains and when we get behind in the score. It’s not what we’re built to do right now, just to try to get into drop-back pass situations. We probably put them in some tough blocking assignments and we didn’t hold up as well as we’d like to. We’re at our best when we have balance and when we’re in closer games and not getting behind obviously, because we’re not built, again, to just drop-back pass. I think when we keep people off balance and run the ball effectively and have our run-pass options off of it, that’s when we’re most effective. So, I think our o-line is a lot like much of our team: a little bit more inconsistent than we want it to be.”On how much stock he puts in players-only meetings: “I think sometimes – I hope it has a positive effect. It’s nothing earth-shattering, no panic button. Those guys had talked to me. I saw Josh (Forrest) in the building on Sunday, and we were just having a great conversation. Guys were good, in good spirits, and he just said he had a few things to talk to the team. Patrick (Towles) had class on Monday before our meeting, so they waited until Tuesday. Just wanted to talk to the team, so I don’t think it’s anything major or anything like that.”On if there’s anything different about Georgia’s offense this season compared to the last two years: “It’s hard for me to put a finger on it. Certainly when I watch them and I see them, I know we’ll have our hands full because they still have the physicality about them that you always identify with them offensively. Probably, I guess, quarterback would be the one thing that they probably would admit that changing quarterbacks – I’m not sure what they’re going to do this week. I would expect them to go back with Lambert, but anyway, I think the big thing that jumps at out me always is the running backs that they have. Big, physical, strong guys that are capable of ripping off big plays at any time. Any time you can run the ball it sets up some play action pass.”On what the loss of Boom Williams means to the team: “One of the guys we have that – that’s the issue when you’re playing a lot of these talented SEC teams: They still have some guys that can hit home run all the time. Boom was certainly one of the few guys that we have that we fill are complete game-changers and can hit the big play. Boom was a big-play guy for us, that we’re going to have to have somebody else step up.”On how he evaluates UK’s run defense: “It’s been a different style with the running quarterbacks the past couple weeks. It’s been a different style, but obviously it hasn’t been as good as we’d like it to be in any area. A lot of times it comes down to just making that tackle in the one-on-one situations. We’ll certainly need to improve this week heading into Georgia because their running backs are still very talented.On if Mikel Horton is back to 100 percent mentally, physically after injury South Carolina: “Yeah, I would hope he’s back at full strength and feeling good. He did struggle a little bit and you could tell mentally and physically he was a little off. But he seems back at full strength right now. And I’m anxious to see how he does this week because I thought he really filled in well last week when Boom went down. I’m anxious to see him be the guy this week, and get the bulk of the carries.”On Boom Williams’ status for Georgia game: “I’m not sure where he’s at. In my mind, we have to prepare like he won’t be available for the Georgia game, but we’ll see how the week progresses. I would still list him as doubtful for this week.”last_img read more

Club official releases statement saying Stoke City player wants to join…

first_imgGalatasaray vice president Abdurrahim Albayrak has revealed Stoke City midfielder Badou Ndiaye wants to rejoin the Turkish club. Ndiaye joined Stoke City in the last transfer window for a fee in the region of €16m.Skor have reported on comments Albayrak has made at Galatasaray’s training camp in Switzerland when quizzed about the club’s transfer plans for this window: “Ndiaye wants to come to Galatasaray. We never asked him to leave. He said, ‘I want to go’. He regrets that now. The player went from a championship team to a relegated team. This is his destiny.”In recent weeks Ndiaye has been linked with a move to Galatasaray following Stoke City’s relegation to the Championship last season.Embed from Getty ImagesThere have been claims the Senegal international has a relegation clause in his contract allowing him to move if the Potters were relegated to the second tier.However, it’s unlikely the Turkish champions would be able to afford to sign Ndiaye on a permanent deal due to FFP. Galatasaray were recently fined over €5m for not complying with FFP and face further sanctions if they don’t meet the criteria in this financial year.NDby Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.

Tipp face quarter-final route in Camogie championship

first_img“Group 1 & 2 have four teams in it and if you win Group 1 & 2 you’re straight through to the All Ireland semi-final and second in Group 1 & 2 are put into an open draw with 1st and 2nd of Group 3 into the All Ireland quarters.”“So I suppose the down side of that is we don’t have the opportunity to qualify straight for a semi but look I suppose overall we’re just delighted to have the draws.”“Its going to be really challenging I suppose because over a short period of time we’re going to have to try to get reacquainted with each other because we haven’t seen each other since mid March when we overcame Galway in the League semi-final.” Tipperary’s joint senior camogie captain says they’re happy to have avoided Kilkenny and Galway in their All-Ireland championship group.The draws were made on Thursday evening with Tipp in Group 3 alongside Clare and Dublin.Speaking to Tipp FM Sport, Cáit Devane said while they were glad to avoid last year’s finalists, there are drawbacks to their group as well.last_img read more
