The U.S. Air Force's Warner Robins Air Logistics Center has awarded Northrop Grumman two contracts to provide radars and logistical support for the Air National Guard. The Northrop Grumman AN/APN-241 navigation and weather radars fulfill important mission requirements and also enhance the flying safety for Air National Guard C-130H and C-130J tactical airlift aircraft. The contract value for the radar systems is $13.5 million, while the contract for continued logistical support is worth $6.6 million.

"This radar offers U.S. and allied tactical air forces high-resolution ground mapping that enables accurate low-level navigation and precision aerial drops, unprecedented safety-of-flight measures with long range weather-through-weather detection, and predictive windshear detection in all weather conditions," said Guido Sottosanti, Jr., director of the AN/APN-241 program at Northrop Grumman's Norden Systems business unit.

Manufacturing of the radars will take place at company facilities in Norwalk and Baltimore. Deliveries are expected to be complete by September 2009. AN/APN-241 radars have been delivered and installed in over 180 C-130s operating around the world today.

Triage Study Challenges Notions of Emergency Medical Response To Disaster
New York NY (SPX) Nov 02, 2007
In the face of terrorism and catastrophic natural disasters, modern regional trauma systems that improve survival for critically injured patients are more vital than ever. Yet many fundamental assumptions underlying these systems-such as the notion that it is imperative to send the sickest patients to the hospital first-have rarely been subjected to rigorous scientific scrutiny. Now, for the first time, researchers at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center have created a computer simulation model of trauma system response to mass casualty incidents involving dozens or hundreds of injured victims.
