UTC Aerospace Systems has secured a contract from Korea Aerospace Industries (Kai) to supply an environmental control system for the Republic of Korea Air Force’s KF-X advanced multi-role fighter jet.

The contractor will deliver critical components such as air conditioning, cabin pressurisation, bleed air control, air turbine starter, flow control valve, and liquid cooling for the KF-X aircraft.

BAE Systems has entered a deal with The Welding Institute, the University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC), and The University of Manchester to support proposals for establishing two National Innovation Centres in Belgium.

If the Belgian Government selects Eurofighter Typhoon as its future combat aircraft, the innovation centres are proposed to be built in Flanders and Wallonia for the manufacturing of advanced materials and production of additive layers.

The centres will improve cooperation between partners from industry and academia in Belgium and the UK.

Aviation services provider Skytech has signed a letter of intent with Embraer Defense and Security to buy six new KC-390 multi-mission military transport aircraft.

“The AAMS solution offers improved communications and situational awareness, while reducing pilot workload.”

SkyTech intends to use the new KC-390 jets for several defence projects.

The KC-390 can be deployed in a variety of missions, including search-and-rescue, transportation, fire-fighting, medical evacuation, aerial refuelling, and humanitarian assistance.

Terma’s Aircraft Audio Management System (AAMS) has been selected for the Royal Netherlands Air Force’s (RNLAF) F-16 fighter aircraft.

Under the deal, the contractor will supply 45 AAMS systems for F-16A Fighting Falcon single-seat fighters and one for an F-16B dual-seat variant.
