Boeing was awarded a $375.5 million firm-fixed-price contract for the non-developmental item integration of the four aircrafts to replace the UH-1N. This was a basic award of a contract (including options) valued at approximately $2.38 billion, which will provide for the acquisition and sustainment of up to 84 MH-139 helicopters, training devices, and associated support equipment. If all options are exercised, the work is expected to be completed by September 2031.
FLIR has provided the surveillance component for the current UH-1N helicopters in use by the U.S. Strategic Command since the mid-1990’s. FLIR has been part of EO/IR surveillance system upgrades on these aircraft and recently contracted to upgrade a set of aircrafts to the FLIR Star SAFIRE 380-HDc prior to fielding the new aircraft.
“We are honored to be selected by Boeing as part of this vital national security mission,” said Jim Cannon, President and CEO at FLIR. “Our airborne imaging solutions will ensure enhanced surveillance and threat detection for the U.S. Strategic Command Mission, helping to keep our airmen and citizens safe.”
The sensors will be manufactured by the FLIR Government and Defense Business Unit in the company’s Wilsonville, Oregon facility. The helicopters, derived from the Leonardo commercial AW139, will be assembled at Leonardo’s Philadelphia plant. Boeing will integrate military components at its facility in Philadelphia.

SUSHI study achieved the primary endpoint of safety and tolerability, and also demonstrated efficacy trends in favor of RBM-007. Subjects recruited for the SUSHI Study had wet AMD that was poorly responsive to previous intravitreal anti-VEGF therapy. Through the 56-Day exit visit, excluding one uncompleted case in the last cohort, single dose of RBM-007 demonstrated no dose-limiting toxicities, no systemic or ocular serious adverse events. One subject in Cohort 3 showed anterior inflammation, which was resolved after one day of topical prednisolone treatment. Rescue treatment with anti-VEGF therapy was ava

GSMA Debunks False Claims Threatening Future of 5G17.6.2019 14:04:00 EEST | Tiedote
The GSMA today hit out against false claims that 5G systems will harm other services, such as weather forecasting. The mobile industry has already demonstrated within leading international standards bodies that 5G can be used safely alongside other services, including weather sensing services, commercial satellite, radar and other applications using adjacent airwaves. The GSMA is confident that 5G services and weather sensing services can co-exist, and warns against giving credence to those claiming a negative impact from 5G networks on weather forecasting data. “5G and weather forecasts can and will co-exist – it’s ludicrous to suggest otherwise,” said Brett Tarnutzer, Head of Spectrum, GSMA. “To suggest that our 7-day forecast will go away with 5G is simply fake news. We cannot allow these scare tactics to prevent us from reaping the huge societal and economic benefits of 5G networks. We urge everyone to simply look at the facts and not get drawn in by misleading rhetoric.” The fact
