The last Vulcan flies for Children In Need as fans struggle to save her   Print  
Only a handful of people outside Vulcan Bomber Command will ever know what it is like to fly alongside the iconic Vulcan delta-winged cold war bomber. These are the views purchased by two generous and lucky winners to support Children In Need and donated Tuesday, 12th October 2010

Private flight for Terry Wogan’s ‘money can’t buy’ auction winners raises £25,000 for charity

On the morning of Wednesday 13th October, two very fortunate bidders from Children In Need’s ‘Money Can’t Buy’ auction will have the most spectacular view possible of what could be the last UK flight of the iconic Vulcan bomber. Each winner will be flown alongside the giant delta-winged aircraft in a unique, twin-seat commercially-licensed aerobatics plane piloted by a former Red Arrows air ace.

UAV reliability and weight improvements delivered by Wire in Composite   Print  
New embedded wiring technology prototype increases reliability, durability and package space for unmanned aerial vehicles. Wednesday, 24th June 2009

New embedded wiring technology prototype increases reliability, durability and package space for unmanned aerial vehicles

A prototype UAV wiring system that reduces weight yet also delivers improvements in reliability and package space is to be unveiled at the DVD military show. Designed by wiring specialists BERU f1systems, the wire in composite (WiC) technology completely encloses the lightweight wiring in composite shielding it from damage and environmental impact.

New ceramic coating allows composites to be used in high temperature environments   Print  
Zircotec can optimize the coating both through thickness and across a surface to offer the optimum weight/temperature production possible Friday, 6th June 2008

Motorsport, aerospace and military applications to benefit from the opportunity to prevent composite delamination in high temperature environments

A new ceramic thermal barrier technology will allow high strength, lightweight materials to be used in high temperature environments for which they have previously been unsuitable. Believed to be the only product of its type available commercially, the process is so effective it allows composites to function in temperatures above their melting point; testing for a typical application gave a reduction in composite surface temperature of more than 125ºC. The new process, for which a patent application has been filed, offers the opportunity to “engineer” the coating to suit specific customer requirements, adjusting the coating properties both through-thickness and across the surface of a component to cope with “hot spots” and differing forms of heat transfer such as radiant, conductive or convective heating. This new coating allows significant thermal protection with only minimal weight gain.
