HENSOLDT delivers Naval Surveillance Radars to Norwegian Coast Guard

first_imgHENSOLDT, a leading independent sensor solutions supplier, will equip the new Arctic Coast Guard Vessels in the P6615 Program of the Norwegian Coast Guard with the latest version of its TRS-3D naval radar and MSSR 2000 I IFF System. The TRS-3D and IFF Systems are currently in operation onboard the three “Nordkapp” offshore patrol vessels. The systems will be decommissioned, upgraded and then re-installed on the Arctic Coast Guard Vessels. Furthermore the contract includes an option for the upgrade of the TRS-3D and IFF Systems of the “Svalbard” vessel.Under a contract worth more than € 20 Million awarded by the Norwegian Defence Materiel Agency (NDMA), HENSOLDT will deliver three TRS-3D radars including the latest solid-state technology and signal processing software and will deliver them from 2021, in parallel to the building program of the new vessels. The TRS-3D includes a secondary radar MSSR 2000 I for Identification-friend-or-foe (IFF). It operates all current IFF modes, including the latest “Mode S / Mode 5” standard which is a precondition for joint operations with NATO and allied forces.TRS-3D is a three-dimensional multimode naval radar for air and sea surveillance. It includes the ability to correlate plots and tracks of targets with the MSSR 2000 I identification system for automatic identification of vessels and aircraft which is essential to avoid friendly fire and to establish a comprehensive situation picture. It is used for automatically locating and tracking all types of air and sea targets and safe guidance of on-board helicopters. Thanks to its signal processing technologies, the TRS-3D is particularly suited for the early detection of low flying or slow moving objects under extreme environmental conditions.More than 50 units of the radar are in operation with naval forces around the world. Among the ships equipped are frigates and corvettes of the German Navy, the US Coast Guard National Security Cutters and the “Squadron 2000” patrol boats of the Finnish Navy.last_img read more

Tristan Thompson, Team Canada Fall Short 83-74 to France; Just Miss Olympic Berth

first_img Matt Medley Team Canada (ranked 26th) came into the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament Final against France (ranked 5th) as heavy underdogs.It was clear the Canadians were over matched and ultimately would come up short 83-74, but Tristan Thompson and company fought hard all game.After a high-scoring first quarter, in which France got out to a 30-25 lead, both defenses stepped up and Canada went into halftime trailing 39-36. It was a back and forth third quarter and Canada would head into the fourth down by five.It was a game of runs in the fourth quarter, as Tony Parker gave France an eight-point lead with 5:49 to play, and after two scoreless minutes, former No. 1 overall pick Anthony Bennett knocked down a clutch three-pointer to make it 67-62 with 3:46 remaining.Tyler Ennis cut it down to a three-point game, but Parker came right back down to make it 69-64.From that point on Parker took over the game. 2016 will in all likelihood be the last Summer that Parker plays for his country and he made sure this one counted and they would qualify for the Olympics.Parker scored 15 points in the fourth quarter, finishing with a game-high 26 points on 9-of-14 shooting. Keep in mind, these are ten-minute quarters.France would outlast Canada, winning 83-74 and it got a bit chippy at the end, as Tristan Thompson knocked French guard Nando De Colo to the ground after a bit of a tussle underneath the basket.Canadian point guard Cory Joseph made sure to deliver a hard foul on De Colo on the next possession after it appeared De Colo got away with a foul on Thompson and Thompson was just called for retaliating.Parker and Joseph, who were teammates in San Antonio in the NBA, were jawing back and forth late in the game, as France would inevitably close it out.It was not Thompson’s best game of the four-game tournament, as this was the toughest opponent Canada had to face, but the Cavalier forward put up eight points and seven rebounds in the losing effort.Joseph, Canada’s leading scorer in the tournament, put up 20 points. Melvin Ejim, who really blossomed in the tournament and proved to be a great source of energy for Team Canada, put up 19 points on 7-of-10 shooting. Bennett scored seven points and grabbed five rebounds. Ennis put up nine points.It was the turnovers that really cost Canada, as they turned it over 21 times opposed to France’s 16.Aside from Parker’s 26 points, De Colo pitched in 22, making for a lethal back court combination. Boris Diaw scored nine points and Nicolas Batum put up seven. France showed why they are a force to be reckoned with and will be one of the top teams to watch in the Rio Games in August.After seeing Canada play so well through these four games, going 3-1 and just coming up short against a great French team, it begs the question how would they have fared if some of their prominent NBA players were available for the tournament.Canada’s biggest star Andrew Wiggins opted to rest. Kelly Olynyk missed time due to injury and Nick Stauskas declined to play. With those three players, especially Wiggins, one would have to imagine Canada would have made it a closer contest, if not won and advanced to the Olympics.But in 2016, Team Canada fought hard and came up just short of their goal. It was through no lack of effort by Thompson, who put up 38 points and 33 rebounds in four games and was a leader on the court.From a Cavalier perspective, if there’s a positive to take away from Sunday’s loss, it’s that Thompson will get some well-deserved rest after playing in 370 consecutive regular season games (411 including playoffs) and playing in 103 games combined between regular season and Playoffs in 2015-2016.If anyone deserves some much needed time off, it’s the 25-year-old forward.As the Olympics are set to begin in August, one storyline to watch for will be how Team France plays in Parker’s final Olympic appearance. It was clear on Sunday morning he was not going to allow his team to fall short and his teammates stepped their game up as well to make sure the star point guard had his last shot at bringing glory to his homeland.

Rugby World Cup 2019 opener and finale dates disclosed — and ‘dynamic’ logo revealed

first_img RELATED PHOTOS LONDON – Rugby World Cup 2019 will kick off in Tokyo on Sept. 20 and reach its conclusion in Yokohama on Nov. 2, it was announced Tuesday in London.With just two games remaining in the 2015 tournament, attention is now turning to the next tournament, the first to be held in a Tier 2 rugby nation. Tokyo, rugby, Yokohama, Rugby World Cup, 2019 Rugby World Cup “We have been working together for a few years and we have finally arrived at the start of the journey,” said Head of Rugby World Cup Alan Gilpin.“I have every confidence that not only as a result of our partnership with (local organizing committee) Japan 2019 but also the work done by the 12 host cities and prefectures that 2019 will be a celebration of rugby in the whole country.”In addition to announcing the start and finish dates of the tournament, the logo for the competition was also unveiled.Drawing heavily on Japan as the Land of the Rising Sun and incorporating the iconic image of Mount Fuji, the logo “symbolizes how the tournament will bring the people of Japan and rugby fans around the world together in a spirit of solidarity and friendly sporting rivalry,” said Gilpin.Japan Rugby 2019 Chief Executive Akira Shimazu said he was “struck at how impressive and dynamic the logo is,” and he added he and his committee have learned a lot from the ongoing tournament.World Rugby CEO Brett Gosper said he “couldn’t be more pleased with how successful England 2015 has been. We always talked about how 2015 would be record breaking in terms of commercial activities, fan engagement and spectator numbers, and it certainly has been.”“Rugby World Cup 2019 will see records in some areas but it will be groundbreaking. It will look very different, feel very different and sound very different to any Rugby World Cup we have ever had.”While all the games will be played in Japan — with the full schedule hopefully worked out next year — Japan Rugby Football Union Chairman Noriyuki Sakamoto said it was still very much an Asian tournament.“Asia has always been a key word and we are working with our friends in Asia to make sure we have a hugely successful tournament and that we leave behind a lasting legacy not just for Asia but the whole world.”Gosper said that World Rugby were already in discussions with two major Chinese corporations as a direct result of the tournament being held in Japan.“It’s clear that having the Rugby World Cup in Japan will raise interest in rugby in China and other countries,” he said. Brett Gosper, Rugby World Cup Limited managing director, holds a Tuesday press conference on the Rugby Union — IRB Rugby World Cup 2019 at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre, Westminster, London, showing off the cup and logo for the Rugby World Cup 2019 that Japan will host. | REUTERScenter_img GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMES KEYWORDS IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5last_img read more

Vanderbilt baseball not alarmed by lull

first_imgVanderbilt believes what’s ailing its baseball team can be healed in an instant.The No. 5 Commodores (28-10, 11-4 SEC) have lost four of their last five, including three in a row, for their worst stretch since 2012.But heading to South Carolina (23-15, 6-9) for a three-game SEC series beginning Thursday (6:30 p.m./ESPNU), the defending national champion might not need a full weekend of wins to get back on track.“I think one inning is enough to do that,” Vanderbilt coach Tim Corbin said. “I think momentum is enough to do that. If you feel anything positive moving in the right direction, boy, it can really carry some weight. Once you get that ball rolling, then Katy, bar the door.”But that big inning has been elusive lately. Over the past five games, Vanderbilt has played 51 innings but scored more than one run in a single inning only three times, with a high of three runs in an inning.The Commodores have averaged 3.6 runs over the past five games compared to 7.5 runs in the first 33. But even more optimistic than his coach, shortstop Dansby Swanson thinks Vanderbilt’s recent woes could end in a moment.Belmont piles on Vanderbilt’s slide“I think you can even turn it around in one play,” said Swanson, who leads the team in batting average (.364), home runs (7) and RBIs (34). “We have been close over the past couple of weeks, but we just haven’t been able to blow it open yet. It just takes one good at-bat or a series of at-bats to really get the momentum and confidence up of the entire group.”Swanson can perhaps say that with more confidence than his teammates. After all, the All-American has two doubles, two triples and two home runs during the five-game lull while most teammates have struggled.“Panicking is not the right word because we know the capabilities inside our locker room,” Swanson said. “We have a strong group of guys. We just need to piece together some good at-bats and good starts.”Vanderbilt’s pitching offers ample opportunity for a turnaround against the Gamecocks. Thursday’s starter, Carson Fulmer (6-1), tossed a shutout with a career-high 14 strikeouts against Ole Miss last week. And Friday’s starter, Walker Buehler (3-0), struck out a career-high 13 in eight innings in a no-decision, which ultimately ended in a 16-inning Vanderbilt loss.As for Saturday’s starting pitcher, Corbin said, “We have one. I just don’t know who he is yet.”Considering the recent losses have been close and this week is merely the midpoint of the SEC schedule, Corbin said urgency is in moderation.“We don’t look at those losses, and say, ‘Holy cow, we just haven’t played good baseball.’ You are looking at three one-run losses and a two-run loss, so the margin of difference is small,” Corbin said. “What frustrates the kids is that they had opportunities to bang open every game.“… But I think the basis of this program is about preparing yourself for moments like this when you say, ‘OK, we are going to get through this and learn to fight through it.’ If they are willing to battle, then nothing is insurmountable.”Reach Adam Sparks at 615-259-8010 and on Twitter @AdamSparks.

We are vehemently opposed to this schedule.“The players haven’t even returned to full-contact training at this moment and yet they are now expected to be in a position to play at a competitive level in just three weeks’ time.“I have made our feelings known to the EFL and, having spoken with a number of CEOs at other Championship clubs, I am not a lone voice on this matter. We are absolutely appalled.”The win at Preston extended QPR’s unbeaten run to six matches and took them to within six points of the play-off places with nine matches of the season left to play.Rangers’ next game is scheduled to be at home to Barnsley.[scriptless] Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Claim West Ham player’s agent has offered his client to another…

first_imgThe Mexican attacker was linked with a move to Fenerbahce’s local rivals Besiktas during the last summer transfer window, but the Hammers blocked the move.Fanatik have reported on claims from Gunes that the Istanbul club were given the chance to sign the West Ham player.In recent weeks Hernandez has been linked with Spanish side Valencia.However, it’s claimed Fenerbache president Ali Koc is struggling to finance such a deal for the Mexico international and his club would need to offload players.It’s also claimed Leicester City loanee Islam Slimani would have to leave, along with Spanish forward Roberto Soldado.Embed from Getty ImagesThe former Manchester United is struggling to get games under Manuel Pellegrini and may need to move on in this transfer window to get regular first team football at another club.Given that West Ham are insisting on a permanent deal, according to claims from the Valencia media, it’s hard to see how Fenerbahce could afford the move.ND by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.

Manchester City player ‘hasn’t adapted to life in England’ – He’s…

first_imgSport say Joao Cancelo has ‘always been clear’ that Barcelona is the club which would suit him best. Of course, they would say that, being a Catalan newspaper, but there has been interest in the past.Barcelona were repeatedly linked to Cancelo when he was playing for Valencia. At one stage a deal appeared close, however, the clubs weren’t able to finalise an agreement.They didn’t make an attempt when the fullback swapped Juventus for Manchester City, yet it’s stated he ‘hasn’t adapted to life in England’ or football in the Premier League.As far as Sport are concerned, Cancelo is ‘crazy’ to sign for Barcelona, and it’s a wish he hasn’t let go of since signing for Pep Guardiola’s side.There’s possible business to be done between Nelson Semedo and Cancelo, according to the report, yet a straight swap is ruled out. That’s because Sport believe Semedo is worth more, given he’s a starter at Barcelona, whereas Manchester City ‘have a problem’ with Cancelo.As it stands, it seems like Barca are content to keep Semedo, but if he refuses to renew then a possible exchange, with extra cash going the way of the La Liga side, would be more seriously considered.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.

‘A very likely hypothesis’ – Defender ‘could end up’ at Wolves,…

first_imgEarlier on Tuesday, we covered a story from the Italian media about Wolverhampton Wanderers’ supposed interest in Faouzi Ghoulam. Tuttosport were the ones reporting it, claiming Jorge Mendes was looking for a new club for his client with Molineux a natural option, knowing how much influence the super agent has there.The Italian newspaper didn’t know how much Napoli were asking for, but Gazzetta dello Sport do.In their Tuesday edition, the outlet explain the Algeria international ‘could end up at Wolverhampton’, with the Serie A side ‘asking for €10m’.Embed from Getty ImagesAnother point was the move can only really take place ‘if he agrees to spread his €3.5m/year salary over the following seasons’.That, for Gazzetta, is described as a ‘very likely hypothesis’, suggesting there’s a good chance the defender ends up at Molineux in the coming months.Ghoulam has been on the move for quite some time now without ever finding himself a new club, so while this all sounds plausible, we’ll need a bit more before getting all excited about this one just yet.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayHero Wars根本不可能获得这个宝藏!来证明我们错了Hero WarsUndoForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is AddictiveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoInvest With VICShe collects rental-like income every month!
