The damage-suppressing protein Dsup
went immediately to work on the culture of human cells, suppressing or repairing single-strand and double-strand breaks by about 40%.
Next, they took some human cultured cells and manipulated them to be able to create the Dsup

But the termination of DSUP
means that more upgrades are needed.
program had been categorized as high risk due to the performance (or lack thereof) of the AN/ALE-55 fiber-optic towed decoy.
JED has learned that the FY04 Program Objectives Memorandum (POM) calls for the elimination of funding for the DSUP
. ACC officials, however, were quick to point out that the POM is not yet etched in stone.
, or Block F upgrade, currently in the engineering-and manufacturing-development (EMD) stage, calls for the installation of a number of self-protection enhancements.
The future of the Defensive Systems Upgrade Program (DSUP
) for US Air Force (USAF) B-1B Lancer bombers is now shrouded in uncertainty as the USAF decided not to fund DSUP
production in its FY02 Budget Estimate Submission.
The IDECM is slated for installation aboard US Navy Super Hornets and US Air Force (USAF) F-15s and B-1Bs, although production funding for the latter was cut recently by the USAF (see "USAF Cuts Production Funding for B-1B DSUP
," previous story).
Over time, the BONE may expand to encompass all Lancer-related acquisition activities, such as the Defensive Systems Upgrade (DSUP
), although it will not effect the engineering and manufacturing development of current programs.
Of these, several will be selected for in-depth examination, including the AN/ALQ-211(V) SIREC, AN/AAR-47(V), AN/ALE-50(V), ASPJ, AIEWS, IDECM, AN/ALQ-135(V) Band 1.5, AN/ALQ-172(V), and the B-1B Defensive System Upgrade Program (DSUP
(Deer Park, NY), intended to replace part of the current Defensive Sysems Upgrade Program (DSUP
) for the bomber -- in particular, the Radio Frequency Countermeasures (RFCM) portion of the Integrated Defensive Electronic Countermeasures (IDECM) suite, development of which has encountered a number of difficulties.
