US DETERMINED TO TAKE ACTION ON CHEMICAL WEAPONS USE IN SYRIA Noises coming from the US suggest that the country and its allies will not stand by and watch the Syrian regime launch what it suspects to be chemical weapons attacks on its citizens and the rebel opposition. According the US Secretary of State John Kelly, almost 1500 people were killed near the capital city of Damascus on Aug 21. As we go to press, congress is expected to rubber stamp a military response. The government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has denied involvement and said the rebels were responsible. But Stephen Johnson, a former British Army chemical warfare expert who is now a forensic expert at Cranfield University said if the estimate of a 50‑litre payload was correct, only the Syrian government could have achieved such a large volume of production.

UK and North East Asia to collaborate on defence equipment

US evidence of Syrian chemical weapon use could force action

Philip Dunne, the Minister for Defence Equipment, Support and Technology, has visited North East Asia to review growing equipment cooperation relationships with both Japan and the Republic of Korea. During his recent visit to Japan, Dunne met with his opposite number in the Japanese Ministry of Defence, Parliamentary Vice-Minister Akira Sato. The two countries have signed a Letter of Arrangement for the first collaborative project to be undertaken under the Defence Equipment Cooperation Framework. This project, expected to be the first of many, will see personnel from the UK’s Defence Science and Technology Laboratory working alongside their Japanese counterparts in the Technical Research and Development Institute (TRDI). The two partners will assess chemical and biological protective suits with a view to developing the latest impermeable materials which can also be used for the battlefield. Dunne said: “While small in scale, our work with the TRDI is the first step of what will become a strong relationship between our defence and security industries and a flourishing partnership between the READ MORE: UK and tinyurl.com/n6lwlna Japan.”

The United States is considering launching a punitive strike against the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad, blamed by the US for a chemical weapons attack on August 21 in a rebel-held suburb of the Syrian capital of Damascus. Just before press, the US has said a sarin gas attack killed 1,429 people, including more than 400 children, based on its own intelligence reports. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which collects information from a network of antigovernment activists in Syria, said it has been compiling a list of the names of the dead and that its toll has reached 502. President Barack Obama has won backing from key US political figures on his plans for a military strike Key Republican leaders John Boehner and Eric Cantor both voiced their support for military action. Obama said a “limited” strike was needed to degrade President Bashar al-Assad’s capabilities in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack. President Vladimir Putin has warned that military action without UN approval would be ‘an aggression’. The government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has denied involvement and said the rebels were responsible. A senior Syrian official said on September 1st that both the Syrian army and its ally Hezbollah, the Lebanese Shiite group, would strike back in the event of a US led offensive by first hitting American warships now in the Mediterranean Sea. And in the Damascus neighbourhoods of Kfar Sousseh, Malki and Mezze, the military was moving into vacant apartments, say residents. Many of the apartments’ owners had evacuated the city over the course of the more than two-year-old conflict. The UN has now confirmed that more than two million Syrians are now refugees. Since the uprising against President Assad began in March 2011, more than 100,000 people are

RUSI

RUSI new Senior Vice‑President named The Council of the Royal United Services Institute has named General (Retd) David H Petraeus as Senior Vice President. This honorary role was created by RUSI’s trustees and advisory council in recognition of General Petraeus’ long association with the Institute and his contribution to the study, development and implementation of defence and international security concepts in operations in the Balkans, Iraq, and Afghanistan. Earlier this year, General Petraeus was conferred RUSI’s Chesney Gold Medal for his lifetime service to the field of security studies and operations. In accepting the new role, General Petraeus said: “I have enjoyed a wonderful, intellectually stimulating relationship with RUSI for over twenty-five years, and I am thus very grateful to the Institute for this new opportunity to further that relationship as RUSI continues its important contributions to a host of on-going debates about defence and security issues.” General Petraeus served for 37 years in the US military, including as commander of coalition forces in Iraq and Afghanistan, and as commander of the US Central Command. Following retirement from the military in August 2011, he served as the Director of the CIA until November 2012.

thought to have died. Prime Minister David Cameron, who lost a parliamentary vote on military intervention in Syria, told the BBC it was “the worst refugee crisis of this century”. He called for aid agencies to receive more funding and for pressure to be put “on both sides in the conflict to improve access so aid workers can get to those who most need help”. The New York Times has reported that a new study of images apparently from the Syrian attack concludes that the rockets delivering toxic sarin gas to neighbourhoods around Damascus held up to 50 times more nerve agent than previously estimated, which could solve the mystery of why there were so many more victims than in previous chemical attacks. Stephen Johnson, a former British Army chemical warfare expert who is now a forensic expert at Cranfield University, at Shrivenham, said if the estimate of a 50-liter payload was correct, only the Syrian government could have achieved such a large volume of production. “That’s a fairly substantial amount to produce yourself and beyond the opposition in its wildest dreams,” he said. Suggestions that the Syrian rebels seized or secretly obtained such amounts, Mr. Johnson added, lacked credibility. “It’s more supportive of the argument that it was the READ MORE: government,” tinyurl.com/mw744zy he said.

COUNTER TERROR

Russia and China conclude joint counter terror exercises Russia and China have concluded a round of large-scale counter-terror exercises on 15 August, codenamed “Peace Mission 2013,” at the Chebarkul military training area in the Chelyabinsk region. The exercises lasted 20 days and involved 1,500 ground and air forces and over 250 pieces of military hardware, including 20 airplanes and helicopters. From the Chinese armed forces, about 600 personnel, as well as tanks, light reconnaissance vehicles, 120-mm self-propelled howitzers, 152-mm self-propelled guns, JH-7A fighter-bombers

and helicopters participated in the drill. Li Shuyin, a researcher with the Academy of Military Sciences of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA), said: “The two neighbours’ common security environment faces challenges, especially from terrorists. “As two responsible powers, their armies must constantly improve their combat capability to deal with growing both traditional and also nontraditional READ MORE: security tinyurl.com/ol68bf3 threats.”

British and Portuguese marines train together

US to sell Apache helicopters to Indonesia in $500m deal

Marines from the UK and Portugal have taken part in a training exercise on HMS Bulwark to share knowledge of amphibious operations. The 38 Portuguese marines received a demonstration of the equipment used by the ship’s Royal Marines assault squadron as it sailed from Lisbon, including the ‘rapid beach profiling system’ used by the Amphibious Beach Unit. The marines were also given an insight into the work of 3 Commando Brigade on HMS Bulwark. The training session culminated in a troop beach assault by 2 landing craft. The exercise formed part of Cougar 13, an annual deployment to the Mediterranean and Gulf region. Lieutenant Colonel Richard Maltby, the officer in command of 4 Assault Squadron Royal Marines, said: “It was clear that the Portuguese marines, drawn from several different units, thoroughly enjoyed the day and gained a good understanding of the tactics, techniques and procedures that both 4 Assault Squadron Royal Marines and HMS Bulwark employ when landing embarked military forces on a beach. It is hoped that we can work with the Portuguese marines at some point in the future to better understand their amphibious capability and equipment and exchange ideas about developing READ MORE: joint tinyurl.com/nod9a9x procedures.”

The US has agreed for the first time to sell new AH-64E Apache attack helicopters to Indonesia, in a deal worth $500m (£320m), including radar, training and maintenance.

FLIR THERMAL-IMAGING CAMERAS FOR IMPROVED PERIMETER PROTECTION

Advertisement Feature

THE BUSINESS MAGAZINE FOR DEFENCE – www.defencebusiness.net

Controlling a large area where high-valuable equipment is deployed all over the site is not an easy task, and it usually requires investing a great amount of money to keep the facility well-protected

Solarpack is a multinational integrated management company focusing on electricity generation projects in the field of solar photovoltaic energy. The company specialises in the development, financing, construction, operation and management of these projects. For one of the most important solar plants in the west of Spain, Solarpack is protecting its perimeter of 41 acres with an intelligent analytics solution from Valenciabased company CCTV Center, combining FLIR thermal-imaging cameras and Aimetis Symphony™ powerful analytics software. BUSINESS CHALLENGE Solarpack is continuously investigating new security solutions to have a pragmatic security system to protect its installations, considering the complexity that involves a solar plant. In this project, the challenge was saving investment and maintenance costs, as well as improving the security system towards a more effective and reliable solution, offering automatic notification of alerts and events. Quick search and review of video images was also an essential requirement. Tests made with other security systems lead Solarpack to determine that thermal-imaging cameras were the best solution, in particular FLIR thermal-imaging cameras. It was then that Solarpack contacted CCTV Center, FLIR’s official distributor and integrator in Spain. SUPERIOR QUALITY CCTV Center presented a solution combining FLIR thermal-imaging camera and Aimetis Symphony analytics software: award-winning intelligent video surveillance software offering a single, innovative, open IP video platform for video management and analytics,

system integration and alarm management. The superior-quality images from the FLIR thermal‑imaging cameras, with Aimetis Symphony analytics, were a great solution for the whole system. The end user had a previous experience in projects with thermal-imaging cameras and a good image quality was the main requirement. Due to the high contrast of their images, thermal-imaging cameras are especially recommended for analytics and perimeter applications. Thermal-imaging cameras can detect a human target at a distance of up to 2,000m and produce clear and crisp images in total darkness, light fog and rain, where colour CCTV cameras cannot. Thermal-imaging cameras provide an ideal solution for 24/7 surveillance, saving costs in IR illuminators or other additional illumination system. GREAT SOLUTION For the perimeter protection of this solar plant, 21 FLIR F-Series thermal-imaging cameras with a resolution of 320x240 pixels are installed on 2-3m poles, along a wired fence. The F-Series is fully enabled for control and operation over digital and analog networks. The F-Series provides high-contrast imagery optimised to get the most out of video analytics software. Digital detail enhancement

ensures clear, properly contrasted thermal images in all weather conditions. The thermal imaging cameras work with an intruder detection system, both are connected to a central station alarm. All the cameras are integrated with Aimetis Symphony software so they can be controlled from a server PC placed at a remote workstation.

“Integrating the FLIR F-Series cameras with Aimetis software was a great solution,” said Pablo Campos, project head at CCTV Center. “We used FLIR thermal-imaging cameras before with Aimetis Symphony and the FLIR F-Series are included in the list of compatible devices. Once calibrated, analytics performance is outstanding.” TARGET DETECTION Aimetis Symphony software is configured with a virtual fence. When an intruder crosses the virtual line, determined by the operator, an alarm is triggered, which is sent to the CSA. The operator receives the signal, connects with the Aimetis Symphony client and checks to verify if it’s a false alarm or a real threat. The system can distinguish between humans and animals. When the system identifies the target as a human, it will start tracking the target. The software doesn’t trigger an alarm unless the target crosses the virtual line configured by the operator. If the system identifies a target as an animal or unknown object, it will not send an alarm, even when it crosses the virtual fence. This is because “animals” are considered authorised intruders in the system. The quality of the thermalimaging cameras and the reliability of the analytics makes it possible to make this distinction, resulting in a drop in false alarms. COST-SAVINGS Before the new installation, 10-15 security guards were hired to protect the premises. Now there are no guards at the access to the solar park. Everything can now be managed from a remote workstation by up to two operators. “The new installation is saving money and is more effective than a team of security guards viewing daylight cameras that can’t display images at night or in bad weather. The use of thermal-imaging technology saves costs of deploying and keeping an illuminating system running. Also, less electricity is consumed using thermal-imaging cameras instead of other solutions, and maintenance costs are low as well,” concludes Pablo Campos.

EVENT PREVIEW

SECURING STATES FROM MAJOR RISKS

Milipol Paris 2013

THE BUSINESS MAGAZINE FOR DEFENCE – www.defencebusiness.net

Milipol Paris, the international event for key players in the internal State security sector, will open its doors from 19 to 22 November 2013 for four days of exhibitions, meetings and debates about public and industrial security This year Milipol Paris will again offer a wide, diverse range of technological innovations and equipment for personal and property security. The show covers some 18 business sectors and among the exhibition you will find a complete range of solutions, developments and services enabling States to protect their populations. Milipol Paris 2013 will welcome some 1,000 exhibitors from 50 countries and is expecting 30,000 visitors. THE MAJOR RISK AREA The dedicated Major Risk area, which covers technological, industrial, natural, health and major risks, will again bring together the concerned private and public players. They will present their innovations in this constantly‑evolving field which integrates all the activities linked to Major Risks such as prevention, protection, surveillance, detection, identification, analysis and intervention. Following the success in 2011, the Business Meetings, which helped optimise meetings between exhibitors and purchasers, will again be offered by the Paris Ile-de-France Chamber of Commerce in conjunction with the European Commission. These meetings enable companies to establish an initial, solid contact with companies in their sector from around the world.

The contacts have purchaser or seller profiles and will be attending Milipol Paris 2013 as either exhibitors or visitors. “Thanks to Milipol Paris, State and regional authority security services as well as companies can discover products and services that boast the highest level of technological innovation and are adapted to suit their needs. The extensive, diverse range of equipment and products exhibited reflects the plethora of trades in the security, antiterrorism, forensic investigation, local public security, civil defence and even road safety sectors,” explains Rémi Thuau, prefect and newly‑appointed President of Milipol trade shows. EUROPEAN COMMISSION RESEARCH The European Commission will hold a conference and an exhibition during which it will present the results of decisive security research projects carried out by the European Union. It has specifically chosen the international venue of Milipol Paris 2013 to announce the launch of its “Horizon 2020 Secure Societies Challenge” research project which will start in early 2014. For the European Commission, Milipol also represents an opportunity to express its opinion on the advanced principles of European industrial security policies as well as on the way it manages both ethical and social issues. It will also report on the international outlook for security at large events. This year, Milipol Paris will be held in conjunction with the Cartes trade show, the leading international event for secure payment, identification and mobility solutions. This means that visitors to Milipol Paris also receive access to Cartes. MILIPOL HISTORY From 1970 to 2013, international economies and security have been evolving very rapidly. The creation of Milipol replied to a growing demand for information and matchmaking in the field of internal security, before developing into the areas of civil defence and major risks. At the end of the ‘70s, various French manufacturers supplying police equipment were worried that they had limited commercial contacts at an international level. Contrary to the Aeronautics and Defence sectors, the Interior Security sector did not have a promotion and communications platform that matched its importance in

France. As a result, the idea of organising a specific international exhibition took hold. EXPOL (EXposition POLice), the first private initiative, showed the way. In 1984, the International Milipol Committee came into existence as an association whose goal was the promotion of security technology and equipment. That same year, the first international Milipol Show was organised in Paris as the principal information and public-relations tool, open widely to professionals in the field of security, including manufacturers, end-users, buyers and exhibitors of all nationalities. The quasi-confidential field of police, civil and military security equipment, virtually unknown to the general public until that time, was thus brought to light. FROM STATE SECURITY TO CIVIL PROTECTION While the subsiding cold war still held centre stage, security services were already at work in the wings, fighting against such growing menaces as criminality, drugs, organised crime, terrorism, industrial and economic espionage. They expressed their latest requirements and needs for equipment, while investigating all the technologies available. The Milipol Show evolved within this climate of expectation and demand. It broadened out to include the field of security which encompasses private and public communities, that of industry and business, the protection of populations, and internal State security. Held annually during the ‘80s, the Milipol Paris Show found its current rhythm as of 1991, the year in which the biennial scheduling was adopted. In 1995, it acquired new dimensions of considerable importance. As it was now held under the patronage of the French Ministry of the Interior, the Milipol Paris Show became an official event, along the same lines as the international Eurosatory exhibitions for land armament, Euronaval for naval equipment and the Paris-Le Bourget Aeronautics-Aerospace Exhibition. Today, the international Milipol Trade Show is recognised for as a result of its professionalism and the quality of its exhibitors and visitors attending from around the world, all from the various security sectors.

MECHANICAL PROCESSES

ZERO COGGING SERVOMOTORS

Many design engineers working in the field of motion control are familiar with slotless motor designs, but may wonder if these specialised motors significantly improve machine performance. In many cases, they can…

Slotless motors offer more torque per frame size, produce more power, run smoother and achieve higher speeds than their slotted counterparts. This is a closer look at the technology, plus realistic tips on evaluating whether or not your application could benefit from a slotless motor. SLOTTED SERVOMOTOR CONSTRUCTION A traditional slotted brushless servomotor has a stator made of stamped metal sections called laminations that are stacked to form teeth. Wire is wrapped around these; when current flows in the wire, an electromagnet is created in the stator. Permanent magnets are fixed to the rotor. As in slotted motors, the permanent magnets in slotless servomotors are fixed to the rotor. However, a slotless stator is built without teeth. Motor windings are wrapped around a temporary mould and then encapsulated to keep them in place. Eliminating the teeth yields many benefits. BENEFITS OF SLOTLESS MOTORS Higher torque: a slotless motor’s redesigned stator allows the rotor to be significantly larger because torque increases proportionally to rotor diameter. Torque from a given slotless motor is significantly higher than that from a similarly sized traditional slotted motor. Due

to the absence of teeth, the area available for windings is also greater – which further increases torque. More specifically, torque at a given speed can be increased by up to 25 per cent compared to a slotted motor. Higher speed: as the magnets pass by the teeth in a slotted motor, a change or modulation in the magnetic flux is created. This in turn induces voltage in the surface of magnets (e=dø/dt). These magnets are conductive so a current flows in them. These Eddy currents increase exponentially with speed and create heat in the magnets, which in turn diminishes their strength. As slotless

unstable if motor inertia is high, relative to the load. In fact, precise servo tuning and filtering, which can be difficult to achieve, may not be required with a slottless motor. Better stiffness: a rotor with a larger diameter has greater stiffness because torque increases with rotor diameter and a higher torque motor responds faster to any displacement from the commanded position. The torque displacement curve is steeper. Higher efficiency: All of the above traits boost the efficiency by up to 25 per cent over that of slotted motors.

A MIXTURE OF MOTOR TECHNOLOGIES Some applications (systems, drives and motors) and their application experience using a mixture of motor technologies available from Infranor: Frameless – land and sea-based gun systems; surveillance radar and masts; underwater cranes. AC brushless – positioning turrets/towers; motion platforms/bases; aircraft pilot controls. DC brushed – vehicle ventilation; ELLS; missile system platforms; ordinance storage. DC brushed – all munitions feeds; aircraft payload management systems. Encoders – guidance systems. APPLICATION BENEFITS Higher torque is beneficial for most applications and is often the first thing an engineer seeks when choosing a motor. More torque usually means higher acceleration and greater machine output. Additional torque also means that a smaller motor may be used, which can save money (if the motor is part of a moving component, a smaller motor also weighs less and requires less energy to move.) A motor that can run fast may be the obvious choice for high-speed applications, such as centrifuges. But faster speeds can

Slotless motors offer more torque per frame size, produce more power, run smoother and achieve higher speeds than their slotted counterparts motors have no teeth they can achieve speeds in excess of 32,000 rpm. Higher power: power is calculated by multiplying torque by speed. Because a slottless motor outputs both higher speeds and torques, it can produce more than twice the power of a slotted motor of the same size. Smoother motion: as the magnets on a slotted motor’s rotor move past the stators iron teeth, they are magnetically attracted. This creates a torque disturbance known as cogging. As there are no teeth in a slottless motor, cogging is eliminated – yielding a smoother motion. Easier tuning: motors with larger rotor inertias can be easier and simpler to tune. If the load becomes momentarily decoupled from the motor (a common phenomenon), the servo loop is less likely to become

also help reduce overall machine cost and help increase machine output. If the machine’s mechanics can handle higher speeds a faster move time is possible. If gear reduction can be selected to optimise torque at higher speed a smaller motor can be used, therefore saving money and weight. Additional power may also eliminate costly secondary mechanics that can shorten machine life and escalate maintenance. The Xtrafors Prime series is just one of the many exciting ranges of servomotors that are designed and manufactured in Europe and available from any of the global Infranor sales and engineering teams.

LOOKING TO THE FUTURE: IVECO DEFENCE VEHICLES AT DSEI 2013

DSEI 2013 is set to take place against a very challenging back‑drop for the defence industry. On the one hand, the boom in equipment sales resulting from operations in Afghanistan has ended, and the emphasis has now switched to engineering a relatively graceful exit, with, in the UK’s case, much UOR equipment being returned to the core equipment programme On the other hand, opportunities still exist, even in a relatively slow market, if suppliers are willing both to understand the evolving needs of the customer, and to invest in likely solutions to those needs. This is not a strategy without risks but, hitherto, Iveco Defence Vehicles has proved very adept at anticipating the direction of customer requirements and developing new vehicle families or new variants to meet them. This is very much the focus of the company’s stand at DSEI this year, taking the opportunity to demonstrate what can be achieved by exploiting existing vehicle families, or their drive trains, to develop new cost-effective solutions. SUPERAV The first example of this is the 8 x 8 amphibious SUPERAV which is being displayed in the UK for the first time. Prior to starting

development, Iveco’s market analysis had identified the growing need for a genuinely amphibious, well protected and highly mobile vehicle to support littoral operations. Although other vehicles on the market had made some attempt at meeting this target, the competition tended to fall victim to one of the several design compromises inherent in the design of amphibious vehicles. Either they were overly costly, or their swimming capability was compromised, meaning that amphibiosity could only be achieved with a minimum payload or without adequate armour, Iveco’s challenge was to avoid these and other pitfalls,

producing a truly amphibious vehicle with class leading protection and payload at an affordable price. The fact that Iveco’s engineers achieved this goal is remarkable, and the fact that the programme went from drawing board to prototype in 18 months is ground-breaking. The rapid development was made possible by basing the design on the well proven Centauro engine and driveline and focusing development effort on the hull. Further key design decisions followed: in order to reduce weight, armour was brought in board, protecting the crew cell rather than the complete hull surface,

Iveco would ll ea welcom rested te those ins on Stand u to visit 30 at DSEI N8-1 3 in 201 ber Septem

with most of the stowage being provided outside the protected area. This of itself saved some 20 per cent of operational weight, allowing protection, ergonomics and amphibiosity to be maximised. The resultant crew cell incorporates all the lessons learned from designing protected vehicles for recent conflicts and is surprisingly spacious. In addition to the excellent tactical mobility derived from its proven driveline, SUPERAV can swim in Sea State 3 and beyond, and variants are capable of carriage in a C130. SUPERAV is particularly well adapted for operations, being able to carry an additional 4.8 tonnes over and above its amphibious limit of 24 tonnes. This outstanding design flexibility allows the development of many variants, including Personnel Carrier, Infantry Combat Vehicle, Anti Tank Guided Weapon Carrier, Mortar Carrier, Recovery Vehicle, Ambulance, Engineer Support Vehicle and Command Post, depending on specific to customer requirements. LIGHT MULTIROLE VEHICLE A second area of interest, at the lighter end

of the market, is the development work which has been undertaken on the Light Multirole Vehicle (LMV). Already a very popular vehicle, with some 4,000 vehicles sold to 10 countries, Iveco Defence Vehicles has continued to invest heavily in evolving the LMV design in the light of advances in technology and feedback from users. One of the principal advances has come in the shape of a redesign of the crew cell roof, replacing the existing modular structure with a one piece hard top. This has given the crew cell greater inherent rigidity and so obviated the need for several of the internal roll bars previously found in the vehicle. Other development has focused on increasing protection, particularly against IEDs, on improving fightability and ergonomics, and on increasing the vehicle’s GVW. This latter aim has been a response to user feedback requesting more payload and more protection and it has been met with a pragmatic and innovative twin-track approach. On the one hand, the vehicle’s kerb weight has been reduced through redesign of, for example, the seating system (these seats are now suspended from the vehicle roof to maximise protection) and radio racking. On the other, the axles, braking system, frame and steering have been uprated to allow the vehicle to operate at a higher operational weight. This approach has seen the available payload jump by some 60%, whilst still providing higher levels of protection. Two new variants are on display which illustrate the latest innovations being introduced into the range and demonstrate how the company’s continuing investment in the vehicle ensures that the flexibility of the vehicle design is fully exploited to meet evolving needs. The first is an NBC Reconnaissance variant, fitted out with COLPRO, its own analysis unit and the ability to mark out contaminated areas. This is an employment to which the light and highly mobile LMV is particularly well suited, and which is becoming of increasing relevance as instability increases among states with stocks of chemical and biological weapons.

The Trakker 10x8 bridge carrier developed with WFEL for Switzerland

The second variant has a fully digitized CAN based electronic vehicle architecture which is simpler but significantly more powerful than its predecessor, improving control of the vehicle sub-systems and facilitating data and power management. It provides an open architecture onto which mission systems can be fitted, and removes the need for complex and potentially unreliable wiring looms. For users who have worked with older variants of the LMV, the developments shown in the vehicles on display provide an interesting view into the art of the possible.

TRAKKER The final group of vehicles on display belongs to the COTS Trakker family whose versatility is seen here in four examples.  On stand N8-130 can be seen the Medium Protected Vehicle (MPV) configured as a Casualty Treatment Unit. Based on a modified Trakker 4 x 4 chassis, MPV is designed to provide protected working space for specialist applications. Other roles include communications, command and control and route clearance.  Three further applications can be seen on the Land Static Display Area. The first is a 10 x 8 vehicle designed in conjunction with WFEL for a bridge launching application for the Swiss army, augmenting their existing 800 strong Trakker logistic fleet; The second unit exploits the development undertaken for the UK’s Self Loading Dump Truck (Protected) (SLDT(P)), a UOR currently deployed on operations. In this case, the vehicle is configured as an Enhanced Pallet Loading System (EPLS), again fitted with the class leading ballistic steel cab fitted to SLDT(P). The unit on display is carrying Faun’s trackway dispenser unit.  The third vehicle, a protected 4 x 4 Trakker fuel tanker, demonstrates the ability of even the lighter Trakker units to combine crew survivability with a high usable payload. Iveco Defence Vehicles is looking forward to an interesting and informative DSEI, and would welcome all those interested to visit us on Stand N8-130.L FURTHER INFORMATION Email: andrew.bucknall@iveco.com

 NATIONAL ELECTRONICS WEEK PAVILION As the synergies between electronic manufacturing and the defence industry have become increasingly apparent and important, DSEI and New Events have created a pavilion dedicated to electronic manufacturing companies which are heavily involved with the defence and security industry. “By grouping a range of leading companies within the National Electronics Week Pavilion, there is no doubt that there will be excellent networking opportunities across the supply chain, as well as the ability to see new technologies first-hand on the show floor”, said Duncan Reid, DSEI Event Director. Companies exhibiting within the pavilion this year include; Arrival Electronics, Apacer, Challenger Solutions, Charcroft, Charcroft Manufacturing and Gaia Converter. The latter, a leading manufacturer of modular power components, will be displaying its extensive range of power conversion and other related products designed for demanding military and aerospace applications.

AOC ELECTRONIC WARFARE PAVILION The EW Pavilion is supported by the Association of Old Crows (AOC), an Electronic Warfare/ Information Operations (EW/IO) association which promotes electromagnetic spectrum operations and related military, civilian and commercial applications. The pavilion showcases electronic warfare capabilities in a dedicated area, providing a rare opportunity for those in the global EW sector to network and engage with key stakeholders and suppliers. Companies and associations set to exhibit include Association of Old Crows, Amplifier Technology, JED, Smith Myers, Comint Consulting and Communication Audit.

The winners will also receive £500 in cash and a 9sqm stand at DSEI 2015. AMPUTEES IN ACTION Amputees in Action, the UK’s largest provider of fully trained amputee actors for casualty simulations as well as film and television work, will be demonstrating their capabilities in the Medical and Disaster Relief Zone at DSEI 2013.

This Zone is a new feature for DSEI. Since 2001, the introduction of highly focused combat training courses and sustained innovations in military healthcare have led to a significant decrease in preventable battlefield deaths and the new Zone has been designed to highlight those advances. Through its long association with the military, Amputees in Action has played an important part in the process, helping to train military medics to deal with combat trauma. The agency’s highly trained amputee actors supported by make-up and special effects artists are able to bring such a level of graphic realism to any exercise that the trainees become desensitised to the shock of the battlefield reality and essential techniques and procedures become instinctive.

Bloodhound SCC

 50-metre standoff CBRNE laser sniffing, terahertz detection for weapons and IEDs concealed under clothing, and facial recognition for real-time matching against watch lists. All of these technologies have been integrated onto the TVI wireless surveillance platform, which can stream live, near zero-latency video across bandwidths of less than 10kbps. TVI is already widely deployed by military and law enforcement organisations. PaxScout SDP 4x4s are fully armoured to B4 or B6 level and carry up to six operators, each equipped with TVI wireless body-worn video streaming. The vehicles operate in pairs, sharing data and communication capacity, and supporting a wide range of flexible concepts of operation. The vehicles can transmit video and other data to other field operators and command and control centres, over cellular, tactical and satcom networks. All of the technology deployed on the PaxScout SDP is completely safe: neither the laser or terahertz systems produce any harmful emissions. The first PaxScout SDP vehicles have already been acquired for operational deployment into theatre in 2013, and will be dispatched to some of the world’s most challenging and hostile locations and situations. These vehicles will offer their operators an entirely new level of standoff protection and advanced surveillance capability.

Weighing over seven tonnes, the supersonic car’s engines produce more than 135,000 horsepower - six times more than the total power of a Formula 1 starting grid. The show car will be featured in the tri‑service area at DSEI, where visitors will be able to see the very best in UK engineering and learn first-hand about the vehicle’s record-breaking capabilities. Since the project first launched in 2008, the Bloodhound Team has been gearing up to break the existing world land speed record and reach 1,000 mph, faster than the speed of sound. On Wednesday 11 September, Tony Parraman, Bloodhound Project Team’s Head of Sponsor Liaison, will deliver an informative presentation, providing an overview of the project and highlighting the importance of a flexible and responsive supply chain.

DSEI 2013 AFCEA/Cityforum Conference: Global Cyber Security – Monday 9 September Cityforum and AFCEA (Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association) have teamed up to bring together very distinguished experts from around the world to look at the threats and challenges posed by cyber-threats to national defence, our economies and society itself.  This round table will provide an opportunity for the public and private sectors, civilians and military, to take a holistic look at the cyber‑challenges facing us and how we can work together to confront them. In an increasingly interlinked and interdependent world, it is virtually impossible to separate threats to national security from those to the wider economy and society.  Indeed with most critical national infrastructure held privately, it is those private sector operators who are in the front line from cyber-attacks.  However, the wider commercial community is not immune.  According to UK government figures, some 87 per cent of small businesses and 93 per cent of large organisations suffered a cyber-security breach last year. This round table will look from different national and alliance perspectives at both the military and civil aspects of cyber security and how they can be dovetailed to provide the most efficient and effective response to cyber-threats. The respective roles of the state and private sector will also be examined. The threat is multifaceted and constantly evolving and it is important to our security that the response is both comprehensive and agile. Military cyber-security is clearly essential. However, even within the military domain absolute security cannot be guaranteed.  The recent US Defense Science Board report ‘Resilient military systems and the advanced cyber threat’ found that it was impossible for even the Pentagon to secure its systems.  This certainly provides much food for thought for military, security and industry leaders.  The agenda also focuses on the role of the military in assisting the civil power. However, it is not only military threats that we face – the threats to our economy are increasing and they put our prosperity at risk through the loss of intellectual property from cyber-espionage and other criminal activities.  This conference will look for answers to the issues that confront us in an agenda with leading cyber security figures from the military, security, political, industrial and academic sectors.  A single 36 bbl Ironfist can deploy over 250 CS mini-grenades into a crowd within seconds. GOVERNMENT GRADE ENCRYPTION Gloucestershire-based defence manufacturer L-3 TRL is launching its new Capatan Global High Grade encryption solutions at the show. Based on the award-winning UK Capatan family of government grade encryption devices, the new Global variants feature identical security functions as their UK counterparts, operating at the highest encryption standards available. Designed specifically for the international market, Capatan Global has the flexibility of incorporating an integrated key management solution to provide international governments with a sovereign capability. The capability to generate network authentication keys gives only trusted persons access to user networks, ensuring the highest possible level of information security. “Our CATAPAN range of products is the result of over a decade of research and development in the field of High Grade encryption and information security,” said Adrian Cunningham, vice president of L-3 TRL’s National Security Division.

ZIP SUSTAINABLE COOKING FUEL On show in the UK for the first time, Zip’s formulation is made from naturallyderived, fully sustainable biofuel. The product, which can be used to heat water for drinking and cooking ration packs in all weather conditions, has won the 2013 Soldier Technology Award for Best Power and Energy Product. Zip Military Cooking Fuel has also been endorsed by explorer, chief scout and TV presenter Bear Grylls. Zip Military Cooking Fuel has been designed to be a highly efficient, safer alternative to more traditional options such as hexamine, gas and alcohol gels. It is non-toxic and poses little threat to humans or animals. The fuel burns cleanly, with a high calorific value compared to other cooking fuels and can be used both indoors and outdoors. With a quick and easy to light ignition wrapper, the product is odourless, waterproof and convenient to carry. Powerful and long-burning, one individually-wrapped cube (weighing 25g) is sufficient to boil a 500ml cup of water in 8 minutes. Additionally, Zip Military Cooking Fuel is classified as nonhazardous and can therefore be transported by air and dropped by parachute. E

DSEI 2013  ALBERGO SUSTAINABLE SHELTERS For homeless and people in general who need a temporary housing, Albergo Sustainable Shelters has developed a single-family housing module that respects the environment, has thermo-acoustic comfort, durability and is easy to transport and store. Each unit with an internal area of 22.5m2 can accommodate a family of up to six people comfortably, with private bathroom and kitchen. The Albergo shelters utilise plates made of recycled tetra-pak which are treated and have thermal and acoustic insulation. The plates combined with articulated steel profiles bring mobility and versatility to the shelter. The combination of these materials with an innovative design allows four Albergo shelters, when closed, to occupy the same space of just a 20ft ordinary container. In addition to its six beds, it has a kitchen with sink, a countertop, refrigerator, electric stove, a kit comprising basic and personal hygiene items, bottled water, pans, bathroom with hot shower, table and chairs for dining. Thus, the design of the shelter allows the accommodation of a family in each unit, which brings dignity and continuity of

family routines shaken by the loss of their homes, avoiding thereby transferring to schools and/or public arenas and the direct and indistinct contact with strangers. HANDHELD GPS JAMMER Chronos Technology has announced the release of the CTL-3520 handheld GPS Jamming Detector and Locator System. Aimed specifically at detecting GPS jammers hidden in vehicles, the unit can pinpoint even the weakest jammer and identify the vehicle in which the jammer is hidden, even in a busy multi-storey car park. Other applications include detecting vehicles with jammers at ports, fleet depots, airport car parks and taxi ranks. Easy to use, the CTL-3520 device was recently tested by representatives of Law Enforcement and Security Agencies in screened rooms at the MIRA test facility in Warwickshire and successfully identified hidden jammers both in vehicles and people’s pockets. The CTL-3520 was developed from research undertaken by the University of Bath and is a significant commercial outcome of the SENTINEL research project which was E Chronos GPS Jammer

DSEI Rising Stars Reception: Friday 13 September Defence is a partnership between those on the front line and those in UK industry who supply, feed, and support them. DSEI is aimed at strengthening that partnership from the boardroom to the front line. It is an increasingly high-tech partnership, demanding a skilled and motivated workforce in uniform and on the shop floor to deliver outstanding results.

DSEI 2013 Army Gala Boxing Event: Thursday 12 September Major General Paul Jacques, President of the British Army Boxing Association, along with many senior officers, would be delighted to welcome you to a gala boxing event on 12th September 2013. This fabulous event offers an evening of boxing, military ceremony and pageant in support of our military heroes and is set in the art deco splendour of Troxy in the east end of London, close to DESI and central London. The event will raise funds for The British Legion’s Battle Back Centre and the Team Army Sports Foundation, both of which are critically important to the morale, operational success and long term welfare of our soldiers. In addition to the high calibre boxing, an auction event will be held with a number of exclusive and exciting prizes offered by the sports and charities we support. Individual places are £250 + vat and tables start at £2,500 + vat for an all-inclusive package of dinner, drinks and entertainment.    Full details are on the website at http://www.teamarmy.org/boxing/troxy/ or and contact Annabelle on annabelle.lambert@ethosvo.org or +44 (0)7941 253 867 to reserve your table.  part‑funded by the Technology Strategy Board. Commenting on the unit Prof. Charles Curry said “Previous jamming detecting products have been unable to identify which vehicle is hosting the jammer. This has been a particular limitation and a major challenge for people wishing to protect critical infrastructure if faced with GPS jamming emanating from a nearby vehicle. Most websites currently selling GPS jammers maintain that the operating distance of a jammer is just a few meters. This is simply not true. We have tested GPS jammers in controlled trials and their range is easily 250/300 meters which makes specific vehicle identification extremely difficult, particularly in a multi-storey car park.” He continued “The CTL-3520 solves this problem and can pick out one vehicle in a thousand which has the jammer installed.” NIGHT VISION Qioptiq designs and manufactures infra‑red and image intensified night vision equipment. More than 60,000 individual night sights have been supplied to over

56 different countries for a wide range of defence, police, border security, coastguard and search and rescue applications.

RUSI Future Maritime Operations Conference 2013: Monday 9 September In December 2012 General Sir David Richards as the United Kingdom’s Chief of the Defence Staff said in his annual lecture at the Royal United Services Institute, ‘The Royal Navy will continue to grow in importance. As our carrier capability comes into service it will be a key part of our diplomatic, humanitarian and military strategy ...... This is its raison d’être. But I know it will be used for much more.’   RUSI’s 2013 Future Maritime Operations Conference will open on Monday 9 September at the ExCeL Exhibition and Convention Centre. The Conference is being held in association with the Royal Navy and will precede the DSEI Exhibition. It will look to a future of responses to crises and other contingencies and also to preventive, precautionary and pre-emptive uses of navies.  As we face an uncertain global future it will consider the uses of the maritime forces of nations with expeditionary maritime capability and vision across the spectrum of roles. The matter of European maritime contributions in this respect will be addressed.  The UK’s particular refocusing on responses to contingencies, the Joint Expeditionary Force and the Response Force Task Group will be an important conclusion to the first day.  On the second day after the opening of the DSEI Exhibition, there will be a final session on future maritime capability requirements. The conference is RUSI’s flagship annual maritime event and is a major fixture in the international maritime calendar. Produced in partnership with the Royal Navy, attended by a number of Ministers and other senior government officials, supported extensively by international navies and other key maritime stakeholders, the conference regularly attracts a full house in excess of 200 participants. Visit www.rusi.org/maritimeconference for registration instructions.

Whitby & Co are proud to be exhibiting at DSEI for the first time in 2013 on Stand N7-375, showing the best in premium quality field accessories.

Leatherman Multi-Tools

This year sees the launch of Leatherman’s (One Hand Tool). OHT is a world first in that it is the only multi-tool specifically designed to be capable of operation entirely one handed, something more and more multi-tool users are demanding. The ‘OHT’ lines up alongside the ‘MUT’ (Military Utility Tool) and the ‘MUT EOD’ which are hardcore tools for use and abuse by troops at the sharp end of combat, as well as the lifesaving ‘Z-Rex’ tool and the combat/EMT tool, the ‘Raptor’. Buoyed by their successes in the civilian market, Geigerrig have designed a new military specific range of packs that incorporates the patented, award winning Pressurised Hydration Engine, a game changer in personal on the move. Very simply, the hydration engine replaces the current ‘suck system’ of hydration bladders with a pressurised feed that gives the user the ability to take on higher levels of hydration during high exertion activities, and to hygienically share the water supply with a friend, colleague or K9 search dog. Also it enables the user to immediately irrigate wounds with gently pressurised clean water and to utilise field sourced water without the need for purification or sterilisation. Further enhancing Whitby’s military product line-up are Inova’s Tactical ‘T Series’ hand held LED flashlights. Incorporating CQB strobe mode and premium quality solid aluminium billet construction, the ‘T Series’ are worthy of further examination by those who need reliable, high output lighting in critical situations. Also having their debut this year are Steripen’s Tactical range of water purifiers using UV rays to purify water without the need for chemicals, allowing personnel in the field to safely utilise stagnant and stream water sources without illness. Buck Knives range of CSAR and Combat Knives will also be showcased for the first time in the UK. Whitby’s will be displaying new models like the ‘Vantage Force Pro’ and the ‘TOPS/Buck CSAR Responder’.

HRH SPYNEL In April, HGH Infrared Systems, a global provider of 360 degree thermal imaging systems, announced the debut of its new high resolution system for Wide Area Surveillance. The new camera, the Spynel-S, features a new look and a longer detection range, displaying panoramic thermal images with an impressive resolution up to 30 Mpix. Associated with Cyclope advanced motion detection software, it provides unprecedented real-time security against conventional and asymmetrical threats, in the whole surroundings, up to the horizon. “Spynel-S is the latest innovation from our R&D department, to significantly enhance the detection range of 360-degree thermal cameras for situational awareness applications” said Thierry Campos, CEO of HGH Infrared Systems. “It represents an exciting step beyond in passive panoramic surveillance”. The Spynel-S comes to the market at an opportune time as HGH has a high demand for long range passive automatic threat detection system, especially in the maritime market. With a large mid-wave infrared focal plane array, Spynel-S exhibits high performance, especially in warm and humid regions. Working night and day, with a visual image of the whole panorama, the Spynel-S detects and tracks unlimited movements over several kilometers in all types of weather. To fulfill all passive surveillance requirements for air, land and maritime applications, 3 different Spinel-S variations are available, with different vertical fields-of-view (5°, 10° and 20°). It will give early intrusion alert of targets, such as crawling men, small wooden boats, RIBs, UAVs, stealth aircrafts. Any human trespassing within 100 square-km area around the sensor will be spotted and tracked on Cyclope display. SERT SPACE HEATERS SERT’s space heaters GAC 1000 and GAC 2000 are designed to heat and ventilate tents or other accommodations.

PARSEC ULTRA-HIGH BANDWIDTH South African electronics group Parsec has announced its latest VF360 module to provide an ultra-high bandwidth platform to both the military and non-military markets. In flying combat missions pilots often remain below the radar to avoid detection. But although their on-board subsystems are mostly located “below decks”, so to speak, the advanced gadgetry of defence electronics has no reason to remain incognito. Tobie van Loggerenberg, Parsec business development director, says: “Ours is a 3U VPX module that is ideal for computation and bandwidth intensive applications, like radar, networking, SIGINT, EW, SDR and video. We designed the VF360 to operate as a payload module with system controller capability. It is available in both air-cooled and conduction cooled versions.” The VF360 prototype has recently been completed and Van Loggerenberg confirmed that Parsec is now busy with a first production order recently obtained. “This is an FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC) carrier that would be sought typically by OEMs or system integrators for use in a wide range of I/O requirements,” explains Van Loggerenberg. “However, we find that our customers either approach us for a specific solution, or to design and build a platform with commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) items, or they simply purchase the module as is.” DURABOOK TA10 With unbeatable performance, DURABOOK introduces TA10, a 10.4” fully-rugged tablet PC at DSEi 2013. Designed to keep key systems running during critical missions, its robust design not only can withstand salt fog and a drop of 5 feet, it is also rated IP 65 and MIL-STD 461F level 2 for aircraft and aerospace applications. Each charge to the dual hot swappable Super High Capacity batteries can keep TA10 going for over 12 hours on the field.

MECHANICAL PROCESSES

ZERO COGGING SERVOMOTORS

Many design engineers working in the field of motion control are familiar with slotless motor designs, but may wonder if these specialised motors significantly improve machine performance. In many cases, they can…

Slotless motors offer more torque per frame size, produce more power, run smoother and achieve higher speeds than their slotted counterparts. This is a closer look at the technology, plus realistic tips on evaluating whether or not your application could benefit from a slotless motor. SLOTTED SERVOMOTOR CONSTRUCTION A traditional slotted brushless servomotor has a stator made of stamped metal sections called laminations that are stacked to form teeth. Wire is wrapped around these; when current flows in the wire, an electromagnet is created in the stator. Permanent magnets are fixed to the rotor. As in slotted motors, the permanent magnets in slotless servomotors are fixed to the rotor. However, a slotless stator is built without teeth. Motor windings are wrapped around a temporary mould and then encapsulated to keep them in place. Eliminating the teeth yields many benefits. BENEFITS OF SLOTLESS MOTORS Higher torque: a slotless motor’s redesigned stator allows the rotor to be significantly larger because torque increases proportionally to rotor diameter. Torque from a given slotless motor is significantly higher than that from a similarly sized traditional slotted motor. Due

to the absence of teeth, the area available for windings is also greater – which further increases torque. More specifically, torque at a given speed can be increased by up to 25 per cent compared to a slotted motor. Higher speed: as the magnets pass by the teeth in a slotted motor, a change or modulation in the magnetic flux is created. This in turn induces voltage in the surface of magnets (e=dø/dt). These magnets are conductive so a current flows in them. These Eddy currents increase exponentially with speed and create heat in the magnets, which in turn diminishes their strength. As slotless

unstable if motor inertia is high, relative to the load. In fact, precise servo tuning and filtering, which can be difficult to achieve, may not be required with a slottless motor. Better stiffness: a rotor with a larger diameter has greater stiffness because torque increases with rotor diameter and a higher torque motor responds faster to any displacement from the commanded position. The torque displacement curve is steeper. Higher efficiency: All of the above traits boost the efficiency by up to 25 per cent over that of slotted motors.

A MIXTURE OF MOTOR TECHNOLOGIES Some applications (systems, drives and motors) and their application experience using a mixture of motor technologies available from Infranor: Frameless – land and sea-based gun systems; surveillance radar and masts; underwater cranes. AC brushless – positioning turrets/towers; motion platforms/bases; aircraft pilot controls. DC brushed – vehicle ventilation; ELLS; missile system platforms; ordinance storage. DC brushed – all munitions feeds; aircraft payload management systems. Encoders – guidance systems. APPLICATION BENEFITS Higher torque is beneficial for most applications and is often the first thing an engineer seeks when choosing a motor. More torque usually means higher acceleration and greater machine output. Additional torque also means that a smaller motor may be used, which can save money (if the motor is part of a moving component, a smaller motor also weighs less and requires less energy to move.) A motor that can run fast may be the obvious choice for high-speed applications, such as centrifuges. But faster speeds can

Slotless motors offer more torque per frame size, produce more power, run smoother and achieve higher speeds than their slotted counterparts motors have no teeth they can achieve speeds in excess of 32,000 rpm. Higher power: power is calculated by multiplying torque by speed. Because a slottless motor outputs both higher speeds and torques, it can produce more than twice the power of a slotted motor of the same size. Smoother motion: as the magnets on a slotted motor’s rotor move past the stators iron teeth, they are magnetically attracted. This creates a torque disturbance known as cogging. As there are no teeth in a slottless motor, cogging is eliminated – yielding a smoother motion. Easier tuning: motors with larger rotor inertias can be easier and simpler to tune. If the load becomes momentarily decoupled from the motor (a common phenomenon), the servo loop is less likely to become

also help reduce overall machine cost and help increase machine output. If the machine’s mechanics can handle higher speeds a faster move time is possible. If gear reduction can be selected to optimise torque at higher speed a smaller motor can be used, therefore saving money and weight. Additional power may also eliminate costly secondary mechanics that can shorten machine life and escalate maintenance. The Xtrafors Prime series is just one of the many exciting ranges of servomotors that are designed and manufactured in Europe and available from any of the global Infranor sales and engineering teams.

Trauma Innovation 2014

THE BUSINESS MAGAZINE FOR DEFENCE – www.defencebusiness.net

Trauma Innovation 2014 is the only international forum focused on connecting innovators, suppliers and end users from the military, humanitarian and emergency medical healthcare sectors to promote awareness and dialogue about the latest cutting-edge equipment, techniques, technology and training

Clarion Defence & Security (organisers of DSEI: the world-leading defence and security event; Counter Terror Expo; and Forensics Europe Expo) is delighted to announce the return of Trauma Innovation. Taking place on 15-16 January 2014, at a brand new venue in Olympia, London, there are exciting plans to expand on the successful 2013 event. The event will connect over 70 international exhibitors with over 2,000 trauma and emergency medical professionals in a fully CPD/CME-certified keynote conference, show floor workshops, training forums, and live product demonstrations, while being supported by all the leading trauma organisations and associations within the field. Bill Knight, director of federal sales at Verathon Medical, said: “I have never had the distinct pleasure of enjoying an event so impeccably well-managed and coordinated, down to the smallest details. Most impressive. You are to be congratulated.” 2013 VISITOR STATISTICS Feedback from the 2013 post-show visitor survey has been released in the 2014 sales brochure, and provides further evidence of Trauma Innovation’s position as the “must attend” event for military, humanitarian and emergency medical healthcare professionals. Visitor statistics from the previous year’s event show that 84 per cent of attendees rated their experience as good/very good/excellent, 79 per cent went on to say that the internationally acclaimed speakers
