protection are two of Loral's areas of concentration. Our capabilities span the broad range of underseas warfare, including guidance and training. Our technologies cover digital and hydroacoustic signal processing, recognition, and simulation.
On-going R&D programs at Loral support these technologies and produce a steady stream of component improvements that enhance entire systems.
We also bring a bias to action to every project-a management emphasis on "no surprises," a reputation for bringing in projects on time, on budget, on spec.
And the same is true whether it's ASW, or self-protection, or C3, or simulation, or any of our other chosen areas.
Loral: It's a good synonym for defense electronics.

^roud Tradition Continues
Experience under the sea. Submarine propulsion and ships service turbine generator experience. GE has more of it than anyone. It’s why our Company is eminently qualified to design, manufacture and test these critical systems for the SSN 21 Seawolf. In 1957, seatrials of the original Seawolf heralded the first of many GE contributions to the nuclear submarine field. Since then, the Company has continued to pioneer advanced systems aboard every class of submarine including the latest 688’s.
SSN 688 Submarines, A Technical Standard
The entire Class relies on GE systems for both propulsion and ships service electrical demands. Their reliability is extraordinary. In fact, since the commissioning of the Los Angeles in 1976, these systems endured the equivalent of hundreds of years of service without a single ship coming off line for an at-sea failure.
Why? For a number of good reasons. First, GE engineers extrapolate the best ideas from existing technology and proven hardware during design and manufacture while paying particular attention to key Navy criteria: reliability, noise, size, weight, performance, maintainability and accessibility. Then they exhaustively test each system under shipboard conditions before shipment.
On-Time Delivery, Worldwide Service
GE demonstrated construction efficiency, too, by delivering these 688 propulsion and SSTG systems to shipyards ahead of schedule. After installation, GE provides life cycle support through service facilities in every major Navy port in the U.S., and in major ports worldwide. Of course, factory experts are on-call 24 hours a day, too. Through this service team, continued evolutionary advances are made available to upgrade the existing fleet. Such upgrades aboard 688’s permit them to remain at sea years longer between overhauls.
Into The 21st Century
The heritage Edison began with the first shipboard power generation system continues today at GE Naval & Drive Turbine
Systems. Here, we apply the resources of our $40 billion Company to develop the most advanced propulsion and ships service systems. Experience allows us to do this. It's the critical difference GE engineers build upon to advance the Navy mission with the SSN 21 Seawolf.

WHEN THE NAVY WANTED “QUIET POWER” FOR THEIR LOS ANGELES- CLASS SUBMARINES, THEY TURNED TO US.
Following the selection of Westinghouse to demonstrate the first generation of hardened and ground gear technology aboard a Permit-class submarine, the Navy once again chose us to develop the propulsion system for the improved Los Angeles-class submarines. This second generation, high power density propulsion system is much lighter than the system it replaces and provides significantly higher torque while meeting the Navy's stringent noise requirements.
Now we're ready with our third generation of “quiet power” for the SSN-21 Seawolf-class submarines.
From the Permit, to the Los Angeles, to the Seawolf-class, each generation of Westinghouse propulsion technology has taken “quiet" one step further for the Submarine Navy.

The V-22 Ospreys operating and support costs are less than half those of alternative helicopters.
Yet in terms of productivity it takes four helicopters to do the job of one V-22.
It's also the most survivable rotorcraft ever designed. It is three to twelve times more survivable than alternative helicopters.
The V-22 was designed from the outset to perform a wide variety of missions for all four branches of the military service.
Consequently, it will avoid billions of dollars ... duplicative development, production and support costs for alternative aircraft The more you know about the V-22 Osprey the more convinced you'll be that America's defense forces deserve nothing lesS'

INTEGRATING TOMORROW'S SYSTEMS...
IT Tillrequirepioneeringinno- \ A/vati°n and new approaches to ■ V V custom software development if the systems are to meet their goals on time at affordable cost. BDM has been helping set the technological pace in systems integration for years. First, we introduced and refined the concept
of “evolutionary development” systems based on off-the-shelf hardware and software. Now BDM is applying new methodologies incorporating advanced Al, CASE, and desktop publishing tools that enable us to produce large quantities of better software, faster.
What do we mean by “better”? We mean as close to error-free software as possible. We mean error avoidance rather than costly error correction. We mean automated documentation. We
mean defining the dimension and duration of effort precisely and accurately, before designing the first line of code. We mean providing users with Software Blueprints™ to assure product quality and performance in terms they can fully understand.
It’s all part of BDM’s Software Productivity Enhancement Center (SPEC)SM concept. At a time when software costs represent up to 75% of the total costs of large systems integration projects, BDM attacks and resolves the highest cost aspect of systems development We’d like to tell you more about software productivity and BDM.

Mk 41. One system,
Its time has come: a single integrated shipboard tystem to launch the U.S. Navy’s highly potent mix of STANDARD, TOMAHAWK and VL-ASROC weapons.
The Mk 41 Vertical Launching System (VLS) now tttakes it possible to counter any threat, whether air, surface, subsurface or land-based. Fast-reacting and selective in response, it is ready 24 hours a day, regardless of weather.
Based on a highly modular design, the Mk 41 VLS Can be integrated aboard most surface combatants by varying the number and placement of 8-cell launcher utodules. With all missiles and associated launch equipment below an armored deck, the VLS offers Utaximum survivability in battle. Each 8-cell module Performs all launch functions, providing redundancy w’thin the launcher, thus assuring system reliability.
Currently, the Mk 41 VLS is being installed aboard the Navy’s newest AEGIS cruisers and destroyers, and
selected SPRUANCE-class ships. Development continues to increase the variety of VLS weapons. FMC is working to integrate the SM2 Block IV and Sea Lance missiles within the VLS. We are also part of an international team integrating die vertically-launched NATO Seasparrow missile.
The Mk 41 is many weapons in one, a solution for more effective, affordable defense. It is a major weapon element of AEGIS ships, enabling the fleet to prevail in high-threat zones of vital interest to our nation.

AV-8B.THE MEAN MACHINE.
Flying from an amphibious ship or from almost any place on land, the AV-8B can now provide round-the-clock protection for ground troops.
At the heart of this new capability is a forward-looking infrared sensor that gives the pilot a sharp, wide-angle video image of the terrain ahead. This allows him to locate and strike at night—
with daylight accuracy.
Night vision goggles enable the pilot to fly at low altitude to the target areas. A digital color map display of the target area helps guide the pilot for night attack.
Exceptional agility range, and handling characteristics make the AV-8B effective for fleet defense, surface attack, air-to-air combat (
and surveillance missions as as close air support.
With its V/STOL capability- the AV-8B has already redefine0 the air base. Now it’s resetting battlefield clocks. Day or night-, pinned-down riflemen get the a support they need. Fast. ,
The AV-8B. “B” as in Big. Ba°' And Better.
 Tracking radar not influenced by multipath (mirror) conditions with low-flying targets.
• Unsurpassed system reliability and resistance against clutter and jamming.
• Modes available for action against aircraft, helicopters, and surface targets.
