You're on a roll Mike.

Come do my AML (Anti Money Laudering Awarness training) online for me.

I will pay you good money, and a warm meal will be provided.

45 loooooong minutes.

Hey Paladin, nice to see another Southerner/Appalachian on board!

Thanks Nashville, I've lurked here since 2007 when I found Cuttlefish's story on the Hibiki but only signed up recently. I'm still getting the hang of things, but I figure I'll take the PvP plunge soon.

Hi all,

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2288587/A-tennis-ball-size-object-travelling-times-sound-speed-25km-away-No-problem-Royal-Navys-new-radar-detect-it.html

Royal Navy reveals radar that can spot a tennis ball-size object travelling at three times the sound of speed from 15 MILES away

- The radar can detect a fast moving, tennis ball-sized object 15 miles away
- Can cut through interference equivalent to 10,000 conflicting phone signals
- It's five times more efficient than any radar currently used by the navy
- Can monitor 800 objects simultaneously at a range of 200-200,000 metres


By DailyMail UK


Britain’s warships are being fitted with a radar system so sophisticated it can detect a tennis ball-sized object travelling at three times the speed of sound more than 15 miles away.

The system, developed for the Navy’s Type 23 frigates, is capable of cutting through interference equivalent to 10,000 conflicting mobile phone signals and is five times more efficient than any other radar currently used by the Royal Navy.

It is also able to monitor more than 800 objects simultaneously - from the very small to the largest aircraft carriers and destroyers - at a range of between 200 and 200,000 metres.


Britain's warships are being fitted with s radar system (pictured on top of a model ship) so sophisticated it can detect a tennis ball-sized object 25km away:




ARTISAN (pictured), the most sophisticated radar system ever developed, has been successfully installed on the Royal Navy's HMS Iron Duke:




Britain’s new Queen Elizabeth Class aircraft carriers and amphibious ships will also be equipped with the new system that offers supreme accuracy and anti-jamming capability as part of a £100 million programme. It is also being proposed for the new Type 26 frigates which are due to come into service after 2020.

The ARTISAN medium range 3D surveillance radar has been installed on HMS Iron Duke by manufacturer BAE Systems.

The frigate is the first in the class to receive the new radar as part of her five-yearly refit at Portsmouth giving her the latest cutting edge in naval warfare when she returns to service next year.

BAE Systems Maritime Services Managing Director, Rory Fisher, said: ‘BAE Systems is playing a key role in helping the fleets of the future evolve to meet the ever-changing demands of the battlespace, creating technology solutions that are quicker, lighter, more resilient and easier to implement than ever before.

‘We are tremendously excited by the successful installation of ARTISAN on HMS Iron Duke which marks a significant milestone in the wider programme and we’re proud of our continuing partnership with the Royal Navy and the role we are playing in delivering first-class radar performance.’


ARTISAN 3D is able to monitor more than 800 objects simultaneously:




ARTISAN underwent testing sessions in an anechoic chamber (pictured):




The manufacturer said ARTISAN sets new standards in surveillance and tracking accuracy, improving performance in a variety of situations within air and surface defence.

The radar system is equipped to detect smaller and quicker targets against a background of electronic noise and interference that can affect radar efficiency and is able to navigate its way through environments that are densely populated by other signals.


The radar system is equipped to detect smaller and quicker targets against a background of electronic noise and interference:




Swiftly and easily installed, the radar is made out of the same lightweight carbon glass fibre materials found in Formula 1 racing cars.

Weighing no more than 700kg, it is designed to take a single team of engineers just 21 days to fit - a vast improvement on other predecessor systems.

Ahead of its installation on HMS Iron Duke, ARTISAN underwent an extensive programme of trials designed to prove its performance.

The trials included testing sessions in an anechoic chamber - a room designed to completely absorb reflections of both sound and electromagnetic waves similar to that used to test the Eurofighter Typhoon’s electronic capabilities - and linking trials at the Land Based Test facility.

How bizarre, Firefox spellchecker does not recognise the word aeroplane.


Not so bizarre. You clearly misspelled the word 'airplane'.


Or, because I live in England, the nation that invented English I spelled aeroplane correctly because we can cope with slightly complicated words. Those silent letters must be a bugger for you Colonials, I know how you like everything to be spelled phonetically (fonetikly?)


Aeroplane (noun)
A vehicle designed for air travel which has wings and one or more engines.

Aero- of the air or air travel
Plane- from the ancient Greek planos, wandering.

I only know the Greek bit from watching the TV series Planetes


I'm with Dixie on this. Aeroplane.

For instance, did you know that SAAB stands for "Svenska Aeroplan AB" (Swedish for "Swedish Aeroplane Company Limited")?

Thread! I was down hard with one of the worst fevers I've ever had yesterday. Then, back to work today with only a very sore throat left to deal with. Strange strain of something.

I'd better finish this up for Mike. I'll include a numerical assistance program I've devised too.
