    Hybrid electric aircraft 'DA36 E-Star' debuts at Paris Air Show

    World’s first serial hybrid electric aircraft is unveiled at the Paris Air Show Le Bourget 2011.

    The DA36 E-Star, a two-seater motor glider aircraft which is based on hybrid electric drive concept is showcased at the air show by its manufacturer Siemens AG, Diamond Aircraft and EADS.

    Recently, on June 8th the aircraft has completed its maiden flight at the Wiener Neustadt airfield in Vienna, Austria.

    In the future, the technology, which is intended for later use also in large-scale aircraft, will cut fuel consumption and emissions by 25 percent, compared to today’s most efficient aircraft drives.

    According to EADS, the motor glider, which is based on Diamond Aircraft’s HK36 Super Dimona, is the only aircraft of its kind in the world. The plane’s propeller is powered by a 70kW electric motor from Siemens.

    The fuel consumption in the aircraft is very low as the combustion engine always runs with a constant low output of 30kW.

    Siemens scientists are currently working on a new electric motor that is expected to be five times lighter than conventional drives.

    In two years, another aircraft is expected to be equipped with an ultra-light electric drive. Siemens’ Drive Technologies Division has already used integrated drive trains in other applications like marine drives.

    Russian company unveils ‘bomb in a box’ cruise missile system


    A Russian company has unveiled a unique "Pandora's Box" cruise missile system which is deployed and can be fired from a standard 40-foot shipping container, from ships, rail cars or even off the back of a truck.

    Morinformsystem-Agat JSC is marketing the system as a take-anywhere weapon able to destroy ships and attack land targets with the Novator Klub-K 3M-54TE missile, one of the deadliest cruise missiles in existence.

    "We call it Pandora's box," said a company representative at MAKS air show, where the weapon made its first appearance.

    The Club K missile system, containing four rounds, is self-contained in the sea container along with two crew members in a sealed cabin with their communications and targeting systems.

    The weapon is fed information from satellites, then raised to a vertical position from the container by hydraulic rams, and fired. It is then guided inertially to the approximate target area, up to 270 kilometers away, where it finds the target using radar.

    The missile then accelerates to around 700 meters per second to hit the target with its penetrator high-explosive warhead.

    The maker will not discuss potential customers but says the system has attracted "considerable interest" from abroad.

    If these containerized cruise missiles are lunched from private flagged vessels then there could be legal repercussions. I think there are some clauses in the Geneva convention that prevents the use of civilian facilities for lunching military strikes...

    No problem, just do it. Then Chinese will also send a private container ship with missiles to you in the next day. After you can send your second ship and chinese will do the same again. So after a couple of rounds, both go to the war.
