Harris Receives $84 Million Order to Build an Experimental Satellite to Enhance GPS Resiliency

first_imgHarris Corporation has received an $84 million contract to develop the Navigation Technology Satellite-3 (NTS-3), an experimental satellite that will demonstrate new position, navigation and timing capabilities to improve the resiliency of the Global Positioning System (GPS). The Space Enterprise Consortium selected Harris as the prime system integrator to design, develop, integrate and test NTS-3, including ground mission applications. The contract was signed in December 2018. Scheduled to launch in 2022, the position, navigation and timing (PNT) satellite will simultaneously broadcast military and earth coverage signals at increased power levels – enabling it to operate in contested environments.The time keeping system will use diverse timing sources to improve mission stability, anomaly detection, and correction. The system’s design will enable Harris to rapidly develop and deploy new waveforms to reprogram and update the satellite throughout its lifecycle.The Harris solution extends beyond the traditional bounds of space-based reprogrammable payloads to enable new techniques to combat evolving threats.Harris will leverage its 40-plus years of Harris GPS and space antenna expertise to support all phases of the project. Harris’ expertise in creating and sending GPS signals extends back to the mid-1970s – with the company providing navigation technology for every U.S. GPS satellite ever launched. Originally developed for warfighters, millions of people around the world and billions of dollars of commerce now depend on the accurate, reliable GPS signal created and sent by Harris navigation technology.last_img read more

With threat of protest, police arrest activists on eve of World Cup final

first_imgA demonstrator holds a sign that reads in Portuguese; "FIFA Gang," during a protest against the money spent on the World Cup on Copacabana beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Friday, July 4, 2014. (AP Photo/Silvia Izquierdo) A demonstrator holds a sign that reads in Portuguese; “FIFA Gang,” during a protest against the money spent on the World Cup on Copacabana beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Friday, July 4, 2014. (AP Photo/Silvia Izquierdo)RIO DE JANEIRO – Some 17 people were arrested Saturday and served with five-day “temporary prison” orders as they are under investigation for armed gang formation. Amongst those arrested are alternative media journalists, lawyers and even a public school teacher prominent in Brazil’s street demonstrations, whose members have called for protests tomorrow around the World Cup final.Activist Elisa Quadros, a prominent figure in Rio’s protests, was arrested in a special operation in the southern city of Porto Alegre. In addition to the 17 arrested, two underage suspects were apprehended, and nine more are considered fugitives and have outstanding arrest warrants.Nationwide street demonstrations left Brazilian leaders reeling a year ago, when protests over a rise in the bus fare coalesced into generalized anti-government sentiment. Issues ranged from corruption of public officials to expenditures on hosting mega-sporting events like the World Cup and the 2016 Olympics. In the year since an estimated million Brazilians were on the streets, protests have diversified and become smaller. Demonstrations nowadays often attract only a few hundred, with politicized activists who seem to have dug in their heels for the long run and arrive to protests in helmets and gas masks ready for confrontations with the police. Tear gas, rubber bullets and Molotov cocktails are standard fare.Police in charge of Saturday’s arrests, like Brazilian authorities over the past year, were emphatic in saying that peaceful demonstrations are fair game as freedom of expression. President Dilma Rousseff, herself a former torture victim as a leftist guerilla during the country’s military dictatorship, has said that anti-World Cup demonstrations are “the price of democracy.”But Fernando Veloso, the chief of Rio’s Civil Police, which carried out the investigations that led to the arrests, said that the police had “robust proof” to convince a judge and prosecutor that the activists were engaged in criminal activity.“Evidence collected throughout the investigations and today show that this group was mobilizing to carry out acts of violence,” said Veloso. “This is not an operation that is trying to repress demonstrations in any way,” he added. If found guilty, the charge of armed gang formation can lead to a three year prison sentence.This is the second time that activists have been detained by the police around the month-long tournament. On June 11, a day before the opener, 10 demonstrators were called in for questioning with the police.In what seemed to be a nod to the impression that the timing of the arrests had a clear relation with the World Cup, Veloso said that officers would have arrested suspects earlier had their warrants been approved, but also said the potential for violence in tomorrow’s protest was a real concern. Argentina and Germany will play in the final in the city’s Maracanã stadium.Veloso also said that the investigations have been in the works for months. In a reference to a local cameraman who was killed by an explosive device in February, for whose death two protesters have been arrested and are awaiting trial, Veloso told reporters: “Who knows there wouldn’t be another Santiago Sunday?”But the material apprehended with the protesters that was shown to reporters Saturday raised questions about how much evidence police had of armed gang formation. The only firearm found amongst the suspects, the police said, actually belonged to a suspect’s father. The father claimed responsibility for the revolver and was then also imprisoned.Police presented a funnel, durepox and a bottle of liquid said to smell of gas, which presumably could be used to make an explosive device. Also presented was an object police described as a shock weapon and what seemed to be a hammer. Police also said they had recorded phone conversations that would incriminate the suspects.Most of the material, however, was not weapons: piles of a leftist newspaper called Students of the People, a vest emblazoned with “PRESS,” a banner, and protective gear like gas masks and eye glasses. One person, not amongst the original warrants, was arrested on the spot for having marijuana.Police officials defended apprehending such material, explaining that items like newspapers and the banner could be evidence of suspects’ link to a gang that perpetrates violence. Reporters asked about apprehending protective gear, which many of themselves also use in demonstrations. Renata Araújo, a police chief involved in the operation, said that whereas media professionals use such material “to work,” violent demonstrators use them to “practice crimes.”Rosilene Teixeira, 45, the mother of one of the demonstrators who was arrested, said she was told by police they would be transferred to the Bangu penitentiary, a large jail complex in Rio’s far west zone largely filled with drug traffickers.According to Natalia Damazio, a lawyer from the human rights NGO Justiça Global, only one of the estimated 100 demonstrators, who have been arrested for crimes related to protests in Rio since large street demonstrations began last year, has been tried and found guilty for a crime. In that case, Rafael Braga Vieira, a homeless trash collector, is serving a five year sentence for possession of explosives. Many demonstrators are awaiting trial or have had their cases thrown out.Damazio also said that gang formation or criminal association have been common allegations against protesters who have been arrested over the past year, which she estimates have been more than 1,000 across the country.Teixeira, the mother of 26-year-old activist Tiago Rocha, who she said is a member of the alternative media that covers demonstrations, said police arrived at her home and rang her doorbell around 6 a.m. Saturday. A month before, police had apprehended computers, pendrives and even the X-box of the family.“They waited for him to brush his teeth and change his clothes,” she said of the morning arrest.Her son’s cell phone was apprehended, and she said she won’t see him until he is released from the Bangu jail, since getting permission to enter the penitentiary can easily take a month.“We even expected this to happen right before the World Cup final,” she said, “but we didn’t think it helps much to run away.”last_img read more

Analysis: JUCO signings help top-ranked Ole Miss defense

first_imgOXFORD — Ole Miss went into junior college signing day dealing from a position of strength.The Rebels coaching staff was not trying to fix a defense that was broken. Far from it: entering the Peach Bowl No. 9 Ole Miss (9-3) has the No. 1 scoring defense in the country. But with four starters and nine total contributors playing their last game on Dec. 31, Ole Miss needed to add to its lineup for 2015.Coach Hugh Freeze did that, signing the No. 1 cornerback (Tony Bridges), No. 1 defensive tackle (D.J. Jones) and a coveted linebacker (Terry Caldwell). The Rebels remain in play for the No. 1 linebacker, Davon Durant.It’s an impressive haul, especially when you consider this: Ole Miss was already expected to add a group of redshirted players from 2014’s signing class, including cornerback Tee Shepard and defensive tackle Breeland Speaks.Four-star DT Jones plans to sign with Ole MissJUCO signing day: DB Bridges to Ole MissIt would be foolish to declare on Dec. 17 that Ole Miss is prepared to adequately replace a senior class that includes consensus All-American cornerback Senquez Golson and two-time All-American safety Cody Prewitt, but it has a fighting chance to remain near the same level in 2015 because it’s not going to ask more from its newest signees them to come in and compete.It starts up front, where Ole Miss will bring back its top five contributors, including Robert Nkemdiche (a second-team All-American choice by several publications), C.J. Johnson (who said earlier this week he’s not thinking about leaving early for the NFL) and sack-leader Marquis Haynes.Ole Miss is losing two tackles, though: Lavon Hooks (two sacks. 6.5 tackles for loss) and Bryon Bennett (two sacks. 4.5 TFL). Jones is a 6-foot-2, 316-pound tackle that simply could not make the grades out of high school to take a scholarship offer from a top program. After two years at East Mississippi Community College (and four sacks in 2014), Jones signed with Ole Miss Wednesday.He and Speaks could both play either tackle position, sharing time with Nkemdiche, Issac Gross and others.“I think (Speaks) could play probably a lot of different things,” said defensive coordinator Dave Wommack on Tuesday, before he was allowed by NCAA rules to comment on Jones. “We really recruited him to be a three-technique, but I think Breeland will help us wherever.”Shepard and Bridges effectively replace Golson and Cliff Coleman on Ole Miss’ depth chart at cornerback, and are the longer (Shepard is 6-foot-1 and Bridges 6-foot-2) types that Wommack has been coveting. The Rebel staff is very high on freshman Kendarius Webster, and Wommack’s favorite player on the defense may be Mike Hilton. It would be a reach, especially until Shepard returns from a toe injury, to say Ole Miss will be better at cornerback in 2015, but it may be deeper.The biggest concern on the defense is probably at linebacker, where Ole Miss loses Deterrian Shackelford, Serderius Bryant and Keith Lewis. Caldwell had 122 tackles at Northwest Mississippi CC, but adding Durant would be huge for a group that is otherwise short on experience outside of Denzel Nkemdiche (who has missed large portions of the last two seasons with injuries).“It was big (to recruit well at linebacker),” Wommack said. “We were really losing three DBs, three linebackers and three d-linemen. It’s not secret we’re trying to get longer at linebacker.”Holding on to four-star Brookhaven linebacker Leo Lewis up to February’s signing day is paramount, and Ole Miss may push freshman Demarquis Gates onto the two-deep by September.last_img read more
