Anti-submarine warfare and fleet 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.

“GE and RENK join forces to bring this advanced technology to the U.S. Navy.”
Manager - Gear Engineering Lynn, Massachusetts
Searching The World
Globalization. Working with other world leaders to develop innovative ideas. “It’s nothing new to GE,” Gary said. “The Company knows this is the best way to incorporate the latest advances into our products and systems. While GE has designed, manufactured and delivered epicyclic gears to the Navy, we wanted to enhance our technical base. So we entered into a technology transfer agreement with the German gear manufacturer RENK TACKE. Their experience in epicyclic gears encompasses over 800 industrial, marine and naval applications.”
“GE will manufacture epicyclic gears in the world’s finest gear facility right here in Lynn,” Gary explained. “In this way, the Navy will benefit from over 30 years of RENK epicyclic gear experience, as well as over 75 years of GE engineering and manufacturing experience producing propulsion and ships service systems for America’s fleet.”
Our objective is to produce quiet, reliable, light weight, high power density epicyclic gears. According to Gary, this goal is within reach. “GE has the newest technology that’s right for today’s Navy. Now we are combining it with noise and vibration advancements we pioneered for propulsion systems aboard almost every class of ship and submarine in the fleet, including the latest generation of hardened and ground gears for Arleigh Burke destroyers. An important reason we are working with RENK is that their epicyclic gears offer unique noise reduction features.”
Clusters Of Technology
While other companies only make gears, GE makes complete propulsion systems. “GE is using systems integration to harness multiple technologies to make the next generation of Navy ships a superior force,” Gary continued. “For example, our epicyclic gears will be integrated into the advanced electric drive propulsion system, which we were contracted to develop for the Navy in the coming years. Beyond epicyclic gears, GE is leading the way with Propulsion Derived Ships Service, Inter- cooled Regenerative Gas Turbines and other advanced technologies.”
A Proud Tradition “The Navy is a valued customer,” Gary concluded. “We offer unparalleled expertise in the design, manufacture and test of totally integrated propulsion and ships service power systems. It's the GE difference. The successful application of advanced epicyclic gearing is a mission we share with the Navy. As in the past, we will accomplish this mission.”

It fits OSA like a glove.
OSA, of course, is an acronym for Operational Support Aircraft.
As the name suggests, the function of an OSA-type operation in the military is airlift.
In the U.S. Navy, for example, the primary role of OSA is to provide rapid transport of key personnel and priority cargo to and within a given theater of naval operations. Passengers are usually specialists with critically needed skills; cargo is often vital parts for sophisticated equipment.
Because OSA payloads are measured by quality, not quantity, OSA airplanes must have exceptional performance and utmost dependability.
If the U.S. Navy set out to design the aircraft that could meet or exceed its foreseeable OSA requirements into the next century, it would want the airplane to have these capabilities:
• The speed and range to respond to unique short-fused requirements in support of remote battle groups.
• Extremely reliable turbofan engines with excellent fuel efficiency and low maintenance requirements.
• The highest levels of technology in computerized flight management systems integrated with electronic flight instruments, and other highly reliable advanced systems that enable the aircraft and flight crews to operate at peak efficiency.
• The performance to use virtually any airport in the world.
• Sufficient size to provide room for as many as 27 people* or up to 9,000 pounds of cargo, or some combination of the two.
If that airplane came off the drawing board and could do all these things, it would be just like the one you see here.
That’s right. The ideal OSA aircraft already exists.
It is our Gulfstream IV. It is designed, in production, and proving every day in service with the world’s major corporations and governments that its uncommon versatility results in uncommon productivity. As the C-20F Gulfstream, it would be the newest generation of the C-20 Gulfstreams that are so effective in operation with America’s military.
For OSA, it fits.

^-~£new radar system designed for U.S. Navy F-14Ds will extend the aircraft’s life into the 21st century.
e APG-71, under development by Hughes Aircraft Company, will combine the long-range, multiple- cr§et advantages of the F-14A’s AWG-9 weapon control system with better electronic counter- ountermeasures, beyond-visual-range target identification, and raid assessment modes. The new cdar’s design maximizes proven performance by retaining selected components of the AWG-9 weapon octroi system and by incorporating modern digital elements from the U.S. Air Force’s APG-70 system cde meeting Navy performance and reliability specifications. The radar is designed and built under °ntract from Grumman Aircraft Company.

Hughes 11 apply the technology, known as real-time hardware-in-the-loop simulation, to the testing of q '"lock braking systems, traction control systems, and active suspension systems being designed for .^eneral Motors cars. In real-time hardware-in-the-loop testing, the vehicle’s control system “thinks” it controlling a real car when, in fact, it is connected to a simulator. The simulation helps avoid design °olems and is an economic way of obtaining accurate data even before full working models of the s ems are built and tested. Real-time hardware-in-the-loop testing was pioneered at Hughes 20 years as part of its missile design and development activities.

The AN/SQQ-89(V) Improved Surface Ship ASW Combat System represents a significant increase in ASW performance to counter an expected increase in threat capability.
Countering this threat calls for an experienced team that can develop an integrated ASW system to process more data, from more sources, at greater ranges, faster. A major yardstick for success will be maintainability and minimum manning.
The system will employ advanced tactical towed arrays, batde group medium and low-frequency sonars, LAMPS III sensors, and other off-board sensor data.
This new system will keep the Navy in control... the U.S. and its allies secure.
A “who’s who in ASW” defining the system today

At crucial moments like this, confidence is all. Especially when you’re learning.
The US Navy put their confidence in the T-45A “Goshawk” trainer powered by the Rolls-Royce Adour F405 turbofan.
Together, they’re a team that combine superb safety and reliability with the freedom ofhandling that’s needed to develop a student pilot’s flying skills.
And while the student is learning, the US Navy will be saving. Compared with today's training system, the
efficiency of the T-45 Training System means that 42 fewer aircraft will be needed, 25% fewer flight hours af^ 15% less time to train. Also, with low fuel burn and hi^1 thrust, the Adour uses 60% less fuel than the Nav> *
current trainers. Its modular design reduces maintenaiT-0
downtime and spare engine requirements.
Over 2.75 million flying hours have proved the Adour’s characteristic reliability and low cost. A rare and valuable combination of qualities.
