First Satellite In Stationary Orbit To Be Tasked With Missile
The U.S. Air Force and Lockheed Martin have delivered the first
geosynchronous (GEO-1) Space Based Infrared System (SBIRS)
spacecraft to Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, FL, where it will
be prepared for an early May liftoff aboard a United Launch
Alliance Atlas V launch vehicle.
It looks to be a better year for most things Cessna. And that starts with the Skycatcher program. When we interviewed Cessna's Bob Stangarone at the 2011 Sebring US Sport Aviation Expo, the company had reported that it had received more than 60 Skycatcher light sport aircraft from Shenyang Aircraft Corporation -- and better yet, in conjunction with its reassembly site at Yingling Aviation in Wichita, KS, Cessna has delivered more than 30 Skycatchers. Times, indeed, have changed.
