is looking forward to working with SGS in the development of programs that contribute to and have an overall positive impact on the travel and tourism industry, says Antonio Pea, JSF
Travel & Tourism School Director.
Mayor Patrick Meneses, Bulakan town, said these programs are offered by JSF
not just in Malolos and cited how it has been his strong partner in the development of villages in his town.
environment will likely remain unfriendly, JCR affirmed the ratings on JSF
given its position at TSE, its stable transaction base and good financial structure.
The committee is persuaded that there is a need for an alternative engine for the JSF
, but expects the Department to program sufficient funds in the future years for a robust, accelerated profile.
The apparent rush to buy more fighter jets only a few years before JSF
begins full production has set off a debate at the Pentagon and on Capitol Hill about how the services will be able to afford so much new hardware.
This agreement further strengthens the commitment between the United States and The Netherlands as the JSF
program moves forward into the production and support phase.
The results through the initial phase of the program have been pleasantly surprising as the merging of the software and physical structures of the airplane in the virtual world has helped Lockheed and its supply base identify additional savings of $62 million throughout the development process, while improving parts sharing among the three JSF
variants--one designed for conventional takeoff and landing, another for aircraft carrier and shorter landing scenarios (which require heavier airframes and a larger wing area to meet the demands of catapult launch and cable landings) and another designed for vertical takeoff and landing--to as much as 80%, along with a 35% reduction in cycle time during the design phase, providing billions in additional savings.
Goodrich, which will also be supplying landing systems, utility actuation, fuel quantity gauging components and associated wiring harnesses for the F-35, estimates the overall potential value of its JSF
business to be worth $45 billion (pounds 25 billion) over the lifetime of the programme.
The resounding mandate of the JSF
project is leaner-than-lean manufacturing based upon a technical recipe called "the digital thread.
