    F-35 Cockpit Simulator Coming To AeroIndia 2011

    [​IMG]

    Lockheed-Martin will for the first time bring an F-35 cockpit simulator to AeroIndia 2011 next February outside Bangalore. Lots of implications, especially at this time! There was a report out there that they wanted to bring the F-35B/C to AeroIndia.

    Lockheed Martin Denies F-35 Presence at Aero India 2011
    http://www.india-defence.com/reports-4766

    Defense and aerospace communities were abuzz with the reports that the Lockheed Martin F-35 would make a debut at Aero India 2011 -- Asia's premier air show -- to be held in Bangalore in the second week of February 2011.

    These reports unfortunately proved false as Lockheed Martin F-35 Communications categorically states:

    "No, unfortunately that report was not correct. The F-35 will not be at Aero India in 2011."

    -- Lockheed Martin F-35 Communications

    Shiv Aroor has his own take on this. He reports that while the fighter jet won't make it, its cockpit simulator will. Not that we doubted Live Fist but India Defence has received independent confirmation from Lockheed Martin that the cockpit simulator is being prepared for display at Aero India 2011.

    "We are working to have the F-35 cockpit demonstrator at Aero India. Not an actual F-35."

    -- Lockheed Martin International Communications

    The F-35C -- the naval aircraft carrier variant which may be offered to the Indian Navy -- is expected to undergo air-to-air refueling and performance testing.

    Participants in Aero India Show 2011

    The first Aero India Show was held in the year 1996. After that a series of other shows followed the successful path of the show. The Aero India Show 2007 was one of them. This show was predicted to surpass the earlier record figures and draw more number of visitors, exhibitors and participants of Aero India Show 2007. Now, the participants of Aero India Show 2011 are all set to break all previous records and make history.

    The participants of Aero India Show 2011 are expected to grace this show which is supposed to take place on 09 - 13 February 2011. It will be held at the Yelahanka Air Force Station in Bangalore, in the state of Karnataka.

    Considered as one of the largest Air Shows of South Asia, the Aero India Show welcomes thousand of visitors from India and abroad. Besides many participants, thousands of buyers, manufacturers and service providers come from the Indian aerospace and aviation industry. This air show provides a platform for these people to meet and interact to make business partners.

    The Aero India Show 2007 targeted more number of participants, buyers, manufacturers and service providers. Latest civil and military aircrafts of the top international companies and Indian Air Force ere displayed at this show. The allied service providers to the Indian Aviation and Aerospace industry as well as the manufacturers of civil and military aircrafts met each other in this show. This show also provided a platform to make partners with prospective buyers.

    The UK Pavilion at Aero India 2011 will be coordinated by SBAC. While the Aero India 2007 recorded an overall growth of over 35% with 302 foreign exhibitors and 209 Indian companies taking part in this event, the participants of Aero India Show 2011 is expected to surpass the targets.

    The exhibition at Aero India Show 2011 will cover an area of some 30,000 square meters of exhibition space. In this event, static aircraft from the Yelahanka airfield will be exhibited in an extensive area.

    Landfill poses risk to Aero India 2011

    India may be expecting its biggest air show ever put up through the eighth edition of Aero India 2011 at Air Force Station Yelahanka (AFSY) from February 9 to 13, 2011 with several countries participating with their hi-tech fighter aircraft. But a massive landfill withmountains of garbage dangerously close by threatens to spoil the fun.

    DNA’s visits to Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike’s (BBMP’s) Mavallipura landfill reveal that it is located barely five km from AFSY, and daily attracts hundreds of scavenger birds flying about. These pose a real and grave danger to aircraft performing aerobatics during the big show.

    Ace fighter pilots vouch that even a stray bird hitting a high-speed aircraft while performing aerobatics could spell doom. IAF’s pleas—the last one was in January this year—to BBMP to ensure birds do not fly around AFSY have till date fallen on deaf ears even as India’s biggest air show is barely three months away.

    The recently enacted Municipal Solid Waste Management Rules lay down that such landfills should be located at least 20 km from any airport perimeter, while the older Airports Act restricts setting up landfills within 10km of existing airports—mainly to prevent birds seeking food from the garbage colliding with flying aircraft.

    However, the Mavallipura landfill—named as Ramky Landfill as it is given on contract to Ramky Energy & Environment Limited—violates both the older act as well as the newer Municipal Solid Waste Management Rules.

    Four years ago, BBMP acquired the present 40-acre land of grazing pastures abutting the forests and set up what they have claimed to be a scientific landfill outsourced to Ramky on a 30-year lease. Ramesh Satyam, project manager (municipal solid waste operations) told DNA that it could have been managed better had it been as big as the initially planned 100-acre land. But IAF officials say it is not the size of the landfill which is worrying them as much as the proximity to the location where India’s biggest air show is to take place in February.

    Aero India 2011 has been touted to be the biggest air show ever organised by India to provide a significant platform in bolstering business opportunities in international aviation sector.

    IAF officials have so far been extremely careful to prevent bird-hits which threaten the lives of pilots or damage to the aircraft during breath-taking aerobatics displays.

    Aero India 2011 - Biggest Ever Aero India in the Making

    All indications so far point to the possibility that Aero India 2011 could very well be the biggest Aero India ever eclipsing the massive Aero India 2007 event. Aero India is Asia's #1 air show held every two years at the Yelahanka Air Force Station in Bengaluru, India.


    A high-level Ministry of Defence (MoD) team led by Sitanshu Kar, additional Director general (media & communications) along with the members from the Department of Defence, conducted a recce at Yelahanka Air Force Station on December 27 and 28.

    "The primary objective of this was to conduct talks with Defence Exhibition Officers at Yelahanka. The team visited twice and discussed media-related issues this time. The arrangements for the media and setting up of the media centre were among the key points discussed. The Aero India media team will start functioning from the second week of January from Bangalore." -- Anonymous sources quoted by 'Bangalore Mirror'

    The show was big enough in 2007. Subsequently, in 2009 also the show turned out to be good despite the economic slowdown. This time, the responses so far clearly indicates that we would need additional space to accommodate exhibition pavilions and aircraft parking slots" -- Indian Air Force officials quoted by 'Bangalore Mirror'

    Update

    Apart from the usual goodies, there's a lot to look forward to at Aero India next month in Yelahanka. The Aero India technical sessions seminar that runs parallel to the show has some promising stuff this year that will add to what we've been talking about for much of the last couple of years. And if the last few years are any indication, they'll add substantially to what we already know. Here's what I'll be looking out for:

    1. A presentation titled "Tactical and Strategic UAV design and development activities at ADE" by Aeronautical Development Establishment (ADE) associate director G Shivashankaran should throw valuable light not just on the Rustom-1 and Rustom-H medium altitude long endurance (MALE) UAVs, but the secretive AURA stealth UCAV, the existence of which was unknown until it was scooped here on Livefist. Hopefully some insights into where the feasibility study on the UCAV programme actually stands.

    2. Aeronautical Development Agency director PS Subramanyam, who provided excellent insights into the stealth features of the AMCA concept, will be making a presentation titled "Combat Aircraft for Tomorrow", which will hopefully provide much more on the AMCA, especially in the light of the FGFA programme progression.

    3. We'll hopefully know more about India's Helina air-launched anti-armour missile from DRDL principal director KS Vara Prasad's presentation, titled (a touch, drily) "HELINA Long Range Air-to-Ground Missile for Attack Helicopters". Hopefully there will be more than brochure bluster in Indian Army Aviation additional director general Maj Gen PK Bharali's presentation, promisingly titled "Ideal Helicopters for High Altitude Operation".

    4. There's an interesting presentation being made by two Wing Commanders from the IAF's Aircraft & Systems Testing Establishment (ASTE) titled "Integration of Western Systems/Weapons on Russian Fighter Aircraft".

    5. We haven't heard a lot recently from India's Astra BVRAAM programme. The project director S Gollakota will be presenting "Emerging Technologies in Missile Development".

    6. Not much hope here, but Sukhoi Design Bureau deputy chief Dr Dmitry Strelets will be presenting "Innovations, the basis of International Cooperation", and will hopfully use the PAK-FA/FGFA as his model, and not some hypothetical platform.

    7. Finally, a technology roadmap on India's high-altitude airship programme will be presented by ML Sidana of the civil National Aerospace Laboratory (NAL).

    Chinese aircraft won’t grace Bangalore skies

    By PK Surendran | Place: Bangalore | Agency: DNA

    Business-to-Business meetings, product launches and focused presentations by the exhibitors will be some of the highlights of Aero India 2011, the eighth edition of Asia’s biggest air show, organised by the ministry of defence at Yelahanka Air Force Station from February 9 to 13.

    More than 600 exhibitors are billed to participate in the biennial show. “A few stalls remain to be allotted,” said Sujatha Sudarshan, director, Trade Fairs of Confederation of Indian Industry, which is managing the event. If need be, a couple of extra halls and stalls would be provided, she said. In the seventh edition, 592 companies, both Indian and foreign, participated. In all, 25 countries were represented. Incidentally, China which had participated in the last show is not making its presence felt this time, confirmed Sujata. This is attributed to the growing trade rivalry between India and China.

    “India is estimated to spend about $80 billion in the next five years on defence acquisitions, making it one of the most attractive markets for global defence firms,” the CII-Deloitte report on ‘Prospects for Global Defence Industry in Indian Defence Market’ said.

    The show will therefore, witness a zealous scramble by the global defence aviation giants for a part of the big pie. Among them are Lockheed Martin, Boeing, BAE Systems, and the European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company (EADS). The flying displays will see some of the latest fighter planes in the world, sources said. Some of the latest technological marvels in communication, electronic warfare, cockpit display and aircraft manufacturing are expected to be on display.

    This show has an added importance since a contract for preliminary design of the Indo-Russian Fifth Generation Fighter Aircraft was signed between Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), Rosoboronexport and Sukhoi in December last. Now the Indian aerospace industry is opened up for foreign participation up to 26% equity holding. HAL, Bharat Electronics and DRDO, among others will go in for partnerships and joint ventures. “One of the most exciting aero shows” is how Mary Ellen Jones, vice-president, Marketing of Pratt & Whitney said of the show in a SP Guide Publications, the official media partner of Aero India 2011.
