plan on Sanders
Lockheed Sanders leads the industry in state-of-the-art mission planning systems for all the Armed Forces.
Backed by Lockheed mission planners, pilots flying F-117 stealth fighters in Desert Storm rewrote the book on aerial warfare. Air Force Special Ops Forces also rely on Sanders expertise, using ourstrategic/tactical mission planning system. And, we have delivered upgrade kits for mission support systems for composite wings throughout the United States Air Force.
For the future, we're building the next generation mission support system (AFMSS) for the Air Force-the most sophisticated, flexible and effective mission planner ever conceived. We're also an integral part of the Air Force's F-22 team, with development of that 21 st century fighter's mission support element already under way.
And, Sanders' Special Operations Forces Planning and Rehearsal System will enable Navy SEALS and Army Special Forces to apply the latest automation technology to their unique and intensely demanding missions.
Strengthened by 40 years of defense electronics experience, Sanders delivers innovative, affordable mission planning systems-land, sea and air. That's how we became the industry's preferred supplier; and how we intend to stay that way.
There is only one tactically sized, technologically mature, space-tested, exoatmospheric Kinetic Kill Vehicle - The Hughes LEAP. Wide field-of-view, liquid or solid divert propulsion, and high lethality - Ready for engineering & manufacturing development and deployment.
Only one company has developed all of the Navy’s operational Standard Missiles and only one company has built over 90% of the production rounds. Hughes is working with the U.S. Navy to develop Endo-intercept capability using the Standard Missile (SM-2) imaging IR system, and Exo capability with the SM LEAP technology demonstration program (successful first Navy-Hughes SM LEAP launch pictured at right).
Weapon Systems Integration

TURNING THE OCEAN INTO A TRAINING CENTER
When the Navy's new Tactical Combat Training System (TCTS) goes operational, real time battle force tactical training will move from fixed ranges and pierside trainers to the open ocean. It will include all warfare areas, all platforms.
The result is an interactive total training system - one that allows readiness assessment and full debriefing; one that assures cutting edge readiness and the ability to train quite literally en route to a mission.
To do the job, the Loral team has been earn ing its stripes in training and operational systems for the better part of 30 years.
On programs like SDDS, ACDS Block 1, MAIS, TAC-3, JACTS, TIMS, RIPS, TARIF, plus design and production of EA-6B, F-14, E-2C and the Joint STARS aircraft.
In fact, nobody can offer our depth of experience in range systems integration and management, or systems integration on Navy aircraft and ships. To say nothing about our experience in missiles, C3 systems, satellites, sensors and submarines.
Loral, Grumman, UIS, and Hughes Aircraft Company: Exactly the right experience to change TCTS from a brilliant idea into a way of life.

T-45A Alternate Power. The F124-GA-400 Requests Permission To Come Aboard
An all-new naval aviation training system is heading out to sea. On deck is the T-45A Goshawk trainer. An airframe so advanced, it deserves equally advanced power.
Which is why we respectfully submit the P124-GA-400. The low-risk candidate for lower training costs and higher trainer performance. A non-afterburning, derated 6,300 Ibs-thrust version of the F125-GA-100 engine, developed to U.S. military specifications and in production for the Indigenous Defensive Fighter.
With its dual FADEC fuel controls, the
F124-GA-400’s transient response time from approach power to maximum power is superior to any engine in its thrust class. And the F124-GA-400’s state-of-the-art modular design and in-place support system significantly reduces projected life cycle costs.
The F124-GA-400 is today’s last word in T-45A power and tomorrow’s most cost effective thrust for T-45A training.

When the GE LM2500 gas turbine engine replaced steam propulsion on the U.S. Navy’s surface combatants, it started a technology revolution.
Twenty years later, the revolution continues. Today, GE builds on the LM2500’s reputation as the most elficient and reliable gas turbine in marine propulsion use.
Current enhancements include the uprate of the LM2500 to 32,000 bhp for Sealift application. As well as the proposed new recuperative cycle LM2500R. All of which go a long way to provide the increased range and overall operational savings today’s fleet demands.
Increased fuel efficiencies. Cleaner emissions. Worldwide support. It’s all ahead full for the GE LM2500. Well into the 21st century.

November 25, 1943— Solomon Islands.
A daring and resourceful Captain Arleigb Burke led Destroyer Squadron 23 to intercept enemy destroyers known as the “Tokyo Express” transporting reinforcements to Buka, just north of Bougainville.
In the early hours on Thanksgiving morning, five ships met five off Cape St. George. “Thirty-One Knot” Burke had surprised the Japanese. He quickly launched torpedoes that fatally damaged two enemy destroyer escorts, while sinking a destroyer transport by gun action. The remaining two enemy ships broke away in a hasty retreat. No American ship was hit in the Battle of Cape St. George, the last such action at sea in the prolonged struggle for the Solomons.
A half-century ago, most ships such as those in Captain Burke’s command were equipped with 5-inch guns from Northern Ordnance, which is known today as FMC’s Naval Systems Division. It is our history, to serve the Fleet.
