Tactical Targeting Network Technology Developed By Rockwell Collins
The recently-completed deck handling trials of the X-47B Unmanned Combat Air System aboard the aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman (CVN-75) was assisted by Rockwell Collins Tactical Targeting Network Technology (TTNT). The exercises demonstrated the ability to maneuver the tailless, strike-fighter-sized aircraft quickly and precisely on the flight deck using a wireless handheld controller.
Usually applied to the broad patterns of persistent winds with a westerly component. It is the dominant persistent atmospheric motion, centered over the midlatitudes of each hemisphere. Near the earth's surface, the westerlies extend from approximately 35 to 65 degrees latitude, while in the upper levels they extend further polarward and equatorward.
Aero Linx: British Aerobatic Association
Welcome to the website of the British Aerobatic Association. We are the sport flying Association responsible in the UK for scheduling and running aerobatic competitions for powered aircraft and gliders to internationally approved rules. We run up to twenty events each year throughout the UK. The majority of these cater for all levels of aerobatic contest flying, and national champions are declared in four power and glider classes. In addition we send teams to the three major annual international aerobatic World or European championships.
“TTNT is part of the overall command and control architecture for the X-47B, and it plays an essential role in helping the aircraft perform vital functions. We’re pleased that our technology is helping Northrop Grumman and the Navy successfully prepare for the introduction of unmanned aircraft to carrier operations.”
