Since the birth of airpower, British industry has been crucial to maintaining our military’s world-leading position. As we celebrate 100 years of the RAF protecting our skies, it is fitting that we create bold and ambitious plans to help our brave Armed Forces keep us safe in the face of intensifying threats. The Combat Air Strategy will bring together the best of British engineering, skill and design, and deliver a compelling vision for the future of air power. The MOD will work across Government and closely with industry and international partners to explore the UK’s future Combat Air capabilities, building on the Industrial Strategy and refreshed Defence Industrial Policy launched last year.The strategy will examine the operational capability needed in the future and the skills and resource required to deliver it. The work will take new and emerging technology into account, as well as export potential, whilst testing British industry’s ability to deliver our future requirements. It is expected to be launched in the summer.Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said: Chief of the Air Staff, Air Chief Marshal Sir Stephen Hillier, said: It is especially fitting that we launch the Combat Air Strategy as our Royal Air Force marks its 100th anniversary. Combat Air capabilities have been at the heart of the RAF’s capabilities throughout its history, and are constantly employed on operations across the world today. This strategy will ensure that the RAF can continue to remain at the forefront of the high-end airpower technology and innovation we need to deal with future threats, working in close collaboration with UK industry and our international partners. The UK is already a world-leader in the air sector which accounts for 85% of the Britain’s defence export orders. The industry is made up of close to 2,500 companies, generating more than £33.5bn in turnover and employing more than 128,000 people – some 26,000 of them in highly skilled research, design and engineering jobs.Investment in combat air technology combined with the strengths of UK industry has resulted in the UK being the US’ only Tier 1 partner on the F-35 Lightning II programme, with British industry building around 15% of every F-35 which is built. The UK has been able exploit the operational capabilities of the aircraft, while reinforcing UK industrial capability, skills and wider economic prosperity.The UK also continues to lead the way in combat air power as one of the four partner nations in the Eurofighter Typhoon programme. With more than 20,000 flying hours on global operations to date, the Typhoon has offered unparalleled reliability and proven interoperability with our allies.The F-35 Lightning II and the Typhoon are two complimentary multi-role combat aircraft that will make up the RAF’s combat air fleet, placing the UK at the forefront of fighter jet technology – with the Typhoon expected to remain in UK service until at least 2040.Just last week the UK led the bid to replace Belgium’s fighter jets with 34 Typhoons with the offer to include a comprehensive defence and industrial partnership between the Governments of Belgium and the UK. The Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson was also in Qatar at the end of last year to oversee Qatar’s multi-billion pound purchase of 24 Typhoon aircraft, supporting thousands of jobs across the UK.The announcement of the strategy comes after an initial review of the defence aerospace sector by the MOD, which involved engaging across Government and with industry. The development of a Combat Air Strategy is consistent with the themes of the Modernising Defence Programme. It will set out in practical terms how the MOD can deliver its critical military capability requirements whilst considering wider economic and international factors, and our national security objectives.
Hearts of Oaks defender, Nuru Sulley has returned home from Egypt after only a few days stay in the Arabian land.Nuru who arrived in Ghana on Sunday night is hoping that issues involving his move from Hearts would be resolved amicably and on time so he will finally join the exodus bandwagon. The defender had to return home upon the request of Accra Hearts of Oak who are yet to receive the transfer fee for the Stalwart Ghana defender.The defender disclosed. “I am back home upon the request of Hearts of Oak because there are issues surrounding my transfer which has not been dealt with. The transfer fee involved has not been paid to Hearts though I have had my share already. “The Egyptians want to pay $100,000 which is less than the $130,000 we originally agreed on with the Libyan club so Hearts objected it so I had to come back home whilst things are sorted out”. Libyan cub, Al-Nasr who agreed on a $130,000 transfer fee with Hearts but has had to loan the defender to El Geish in the Egyptian Premier League because of the postponement of the Libyan League due to violence in that region. The Federation of Libyan Football postponed the Libyan domestic football league until January 2015 following ongoing armed violence in the North African country. The new season was supposed to commence in August but fighting between rebel factions in the capital, Tripoli and Benghazi have made arrangements impossible. The general assembly of the body set for August 18 in Bayda, eastern Libya, was also suspended until further notice.Hearts are said to have recalled the defender because it had not received its share of the transfer fee involved in the transfer of their defender.
Promoted postA Donegal company is leading the way in helping people cope with the loss of their hair. For Hairloss Tricopigmentation/scalp micro-pigmentation is now a real and innovative solution.Tricopigmentation /scalp micro-pigmentation is one of the most innovative and effective solutions available today for hairloss that does not involve surgery or potions of any kind.A lot of people today are very concerned about projecting the right image, whether its about having a good body weight or just looking radiant and healthy.This is now possible using tricopigmentation/scalp-micropigmentation technique. To most people an image is very important for the first impression and a person’s hair has a lot of influence on the creation of this image. When the hair starts to fall out, the image deteriorates and people end up with an older-looking appearance. Many men grow their remaining own hair and comb it a certain way to try and hide the balding areas or they shave the sides and back of head to reduce the contrast between the remaining hair and the bald areas.Hair loss is something that the majority of men and some women can suffer from at some time in their lives and this situation understandably can lead to a lot of stress and depression. Many men and women as well can suffer from a thinning hair disorder called alopecia. Well with new techniques and innovation there is no longer any need to look bald or have thinning hair or alopecia patches.Tricopigmentation (Scalp Micro-Pigmentation)So what is it? Tricopigmentation is sometimes also referred to as Scalp Micro-Pigmentation. It is the implantation of thousands of tiny micro dots by way of a specialist type of tattoo needle, but unlike tattoos, these dots do not go as deep therefore avoiding the blueing effect of aged tattoo’s. These dots are created using specifically formulated pigments and are skilfully implanted into the scalp in a very detailed patterned sequence. The dots mimic a shaved stubble effect on the scalp and completely cover the balding area. Even though most balding men today try to cover up their hair loss by shaving the hair at the sides and back of the head to minimise the contrast between the remaining hair and the bald area, you can still see that they are bald, especially when the remaining hair grows back. With tricpigmentation/scalp-micropigmentation it looks like a full head of hair all the time.Thinning Hair, Alopecia and ScarsAs well as the shaved effect look micro-pigmentation works on alopecia patches and those with thinning hair. For thinning hair a density effect technique is applied this involves micro dots being implanted on the scalp between the hairs. It is also works great for scars on the head from trauma or the scars from past hair transplants.
