maybe we could procure the satellites made by Israel and launch by France.. I remember years ago, Israel develop spy sats for there own use and launch into space by France using there Arieane rockets.. correct me if I'm wrong..

less political strings if we go Israeli-made sats..

General Discussion / Chinese investors eye 3 PH islets
« on: August 05, 2019, 07:45:56 AM »
islets that are strategic and can be used against us..

https://globalnation.inquirer.net/178612/chinese-investors-eye-3-ph-isles

The 10,000-hectare Fuga Island is a quiet, coastal town in Babuyan archipelago, the second northernmost island group in the Philippines. Its location provides access to both sides of the Pacific Ocean and the South China Sea.

For the Philippine Navy, Fuga and all other features in the Batanes Group of Islands are considered “strategic features” because “it can potentially control access to Luzon Strait.”

“It is one of the rationales for establishing presence on Mavulis Island at the border with Taiwan,” said the Navy spokesperson, Capt. Jonathan Zata, referring to the naval detachment launched in the northernmost part of the Philippines this year.

Fuga Island is also considered “unique” by the Navy for its private airfield on one of the adjacent islets and lies astride a telecommunications submarine cable connecting the country with mainland Asia.

Discussions about all nations and places / cost of a Chinese Warship
« on: July 23, 2019, 02:09:10 PM »
https://thediplomat.com/2015/06/how-much-do-chinas-warships-actually-cost/

Weapons: $84 million, 24 percent. The most expensive part of the Type 054A’s weapons suite is likely the vertical launching system cells. An 8-cell module from the US Mk 41 VLS system – the most widely used in the world – costs around $15 million. The Type 054A has 32 total VLS cells and the author discounts the 8-cell module cost to $10 million, making the system cost an estimated $40 million. The second most expensive component of the Type 054A’s armament are its two Type 730 close in weapon systems (“CIWS”), which likely cost around $11 million for both. The U.S. Navy’s Phalanx Block 1B CIWS costs $5.6 million per unit, and the author believes this is a reasonable proxy for the Type 730 CIWS cost because although the Chinese gun is a larger caliber and the system is physically larger, the assembly and materials costs are likely substantially lower.

maybe, a ballpark for JRF VLS and CIWS..

US$ 6-8million dollar for this functions --

VertiJet can fulfill a variety of military missions including combat search and rescue (CSAR); ship-to-shore logistics; intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR); armed escort, and special operations..

The VertiJet is a runway-independent aircraft that can take off and land vertically and hover similar to a helicopter. VertiJet will incorporate technologies designed and developed by Skyworks in the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's (DARPA's) Heliplane programme to achieve an estimated top speed of 644 km/h and a range of 1,000 n miles with a maximum payload of 454 kg.

The first ever missile-capable warship to be built for the Philippine Navy was transferred to the water for the first time, seven months after her keel was laid.

The future BRP Jose Rizal (FF-150) was launched on Thursday during a ceremony at the Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) shipyard here.

The 107-meter-long vessel represents the first brand new Philippine Navy ship capable of anti-warfare, anti-surface warfare, anti-submarine warfare and electronic warfare operations.

death blow for huawei

Huawei has yet another major problem in the pipeline, as BBC is reporting that Arm has supposedly told its staff to halt business deals with Huawei.

Employees were apparently told “all active contracts, support entitlements, and any pending engagements,” with Huawei and its subsidiaries in compliance with the US trade ban on the company.

While Arm is a UK tech firm, it believes it is still affected by the US restrictions on technology transfer as its designs contain US Origin technology.
