The US Navy CNO wants the CBARS asap. Even yesterday.

oh, well, frak. CBARS has been pulled into an OSD review:

On the positive side, the US Navy, assuming CBARS survives, has stated it will be a tighter ship than the UCLASS effort:

Me too! Me too!

The US Navy is changing CBARS to the RAQ-25 Stingray.

Whatever happened to building a pilotless C-2 greyhound filled with Jet-A....

And the OSD will now have to decide if the CBARS/RAQ-25 Stingray will require a new competition.

Of course it will. The requirements are totally different.

Oh, I would think so, but apparently some are saying they don't need to reinvent the wheel.

I didn't think they got that far though.

They hadn't started the comp yet, but the RFP was set.

The old fart that decided to call it Stingray, (probably an Admiral!) must have watched this as a child.

LOL

OK what about "Rodger?" Anybody know where that came from?


The British. The guy saying 'roger' is actually saying something tasteless in reply.

eta: actually, it seems it's a Shelta word, so it's more my ancestry, the Brits just stole it.

This feels kind of dirty to say, but...

Remember Sweetman said Boeing has 'won' the UCLASS with its Cyberweapon drone? (whatever the acronym they prefer for hacking enemy systems).

It made me go 'hmmm' thinking maybe the reason the comment about needing to rerun the competition was because, well, Boeing really did already win it?

Ok, I feel dirty for sharing a thought that put Sweetman in a good light.

I'll go take a shower to get clean.

I haven't seen any official comment about it but there have been several comments on articles of his to the effect of "Good luck at NG".

Part of me has been going Thank God, and the other part has been going, I had no idea they were so desperate.

He'll fit right in though. Look at all the pro Northrop stuff he's posted through the years while bashing pretty much everyone else.

It just occurred to me. If he does go to NG does that mean he has to like the F-35 now, since they make the center fuselage?

Heh. He'll probably smack talk all the parts of the jet not built by NG.
