xx Licensing Violations - Air-Force.ca

April 01, 2018, 07:39:06 by Mike Bobbitt
Folks,

Last week I received word that there are crown copyrights on Army.ca and Navy.ca. Air-Force.ca is not affected due to the addition of the hyphen. Unfortunately starting in April we are legally unable to use the other sites and their proprietary colour schemes, so moving forward we will be stuck with the Air-Force style.

I apologize and will do all I can to fight this, but as the papers have been filed, for now we must comply.


Cheers
Mike

xx Canadian developed Quantum radar will expose stealth aircraft

April 16, 2018, 15:45:43 by whiskey601
Interesting article and development at UWaterloo Engineering relating to surveillance of Canadian airspace

Quantum radar will expose stealth aircraft
New $2.7 million project funded by Department of National Defence will develop technology for quantum radar

Stealth aircraft in the Canadian arctic will be no match for a new quantum radar system.

Researchers at the University of Waterloo are developing a new technology that promises to help radar operators cut through heavy background noise and isolate objects — including stealth aircraft and missiles — with unparalleled accuracy.

“In the Arctic, space weather such as geomagnetic storms and solar flares interfere with radar operation and make the effective identification of objects more challenging,” said Jonathan Baugh, a faculty member at the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) and a professor in the Department of Chemistry who is leading the project with three other researchers at IQC and the Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology (WIN). “By moving from traditional radar to quantum radar, we hope to not only cut through this noise, but also to identify objects that have been specifically designed to avoid detection.”

Has anyone heard any reviews on the new parka yet?  Is it any sort of improvement on the old blue gortex?

January 29, 2018, 01:39:07 by kolkim
I forget the beginning of the armorer song and it's really bothering me. Can anyone chime in? I only remember

We drink when we're thirsty, we drink when we're dry
We're armorers we're armorers so F*** OFF and DIE

rcaf Multi Air Lift to SAR pilot career

September 22, 2017, 19:11:45 by dreams to fly
I'm heading in to multi-engine PHIII pilot training and I have yet to meet someone who has both tactical airlift and SAR experience. I do believe that it would be a good career path for my family and I but it is based off of limited opinion and speculation. I'm just wondering if there are any pilots out there that have experience in both these worlds that could enlighten me on how the career transition and progression went for them

Military Quote
I divide my officers into four classes: the clever the lazy the industrious and the stupid. Each officer posses at least two of these qualities. Those who are clever & industrious are fitted for the highest staff appointments. Use can be made of those who are stupid & lazy. The man who is clever & lazy however, is for the very highest command; he has the temperment & the nerves to deal with all situations. Whoever is stupid and industrious is a menace and must be removed immediatly.

- Gen-Baron von Hammersteiner, Equord C-C, Reichswehr
