first_img The editor of the weekly Sepass, Hussein Saidpour, was released on bail today.

We call for the immediate release of Jahani and Saidpour.”Jahani, who is the correspondent of the Turkish news agency Euphrat in the northwestern city of Mahabad, was summoned on 27 November to the local prosecutor’s office where he was immediately arrested on the city prosecutor’s orders for writing critical articles that were published in the foreign press. Jahani also belongs to an organisation founded by fellow journalist Mohammad Sedigh Kabovand that defends human rights in the Kurdish part of Iran.Jahani’s wife told Reporters Without Borders that he went on hunger strike after refusing to pay of bail of 5 million tumen (about 4,000 euros) in protest against the arbitrary nature of his arrest. He is currently held in Mahabad prison.Saidpour was arrested on 28 November and the national weekly he edits, Sepass (“Thanks”), was closed for an alleged “ethnic insult” in one of the answers to the crossword in the latest issue that was considered offensive by the inhabitants of the southwestern province of Lorestan. In an attempt to defuse tension as students staged protests against the newspaper, the Press Surveillance Commission ordered its closure and the Tehran prosecutor issued a warrant for Saidpour’s arrest. He is reportedly being held in Tehran’s Evin prison.Five pro-reform and independent weeklies in the northwestern province of Zandijan – Payam-e Zanjan, Bahar-e Zanjan, Seda-ye Zanjan, Alborz-e Khorram and Mowj-e Bidari – meanwhile announced in a joint statement that they have decided to suspend publication in protest against the Mahmoud Ahmadinejad government’s repressive policies towards the media, above all the restrictions and judicial harassment.

The ship sets will be installed on new ships and will also upgrade legacy combat management systems on in-service ships, bringing them up to U.S. Navy-certified open architecture (OA) standards.SSDS is an open, distributed combat management system in service on carriers and expeditionary warfare ships. It is designed to expedite the detect-to-engage sequence to defend against anti-ship cruise missiles. SSDS links and automates standalone sensors and weapon systems to provide the required combat reaction.“Aligned with the Navy’s surface ship refresh and life-cycle maintenance schedules, the SSDS hardware upgrades ensure that these ships return to the fleet with fully enhanced combat management capability, optimized to ensure maximum protection for the ship and its crew,” said Kevin Peppe, vice president of Seapower Capability Systems for Raytheon’s Integrated Defense Systems (IDS) business. “The system’s open design and flexibility easily support upgrades to enhance and extend the ship’s capabilities – now and throughout its life.”Under the current production contract, Raytheon is responsible for the assembly, testing and delivery of hardware sets for integration onboard the Navy’s amphibious assault ship LHA 7, aircraft carriers USS Truman (CVN 75) and Ford (CVN 78), the amphibious transport dock ship LPD 26, and the NAVAIR (Naval Air Systems Command) test facility. The integrated sensor system upgrades enhance the combat management system’s response time and weapons systems coordination. Hardware ship set upgrades also address commercial off-the-shelf equipment obsolescence, capitalizing on progressive commercial improvements of standard system components.Most recently, the company was awarded a $9 million modification to the previously awarded Platform Systems Engineering Agent contract to exercise options for fiscal 2011 Ship Self-Defense System PSEA efforts. The modification funds continue SSDS pre- and post-certification/life-cycle maintenance support services, SSDS MK 2 modification for CVN 78, and SSDS MK 1 upgrade to the MK 2 OA baseline.Raytheon’s SSDS MK 2 is the first fleet use of this open architecture computing environment software that includes selected software components from the Total Ship Computing Environment Infrastructure developed for the DDG 1000-class destroyer. The open architecture design adds a new level of flexibility and commercial standards to support the Navy’s goal of open, modular and interoperable combat management systems for the fleet. With its open and modular design, SSDS can also support additional domestic and international combatants.Work on SSDS is performed at Raytheon IDS’ Expeditionary Warfare Center, San Diego, Calif., and Seapower Capability Center, Portsmouth, R.I.Raytheon Company, with 2010 sales of $25 billion, is a technology and innovation leader specializing in defense, homeland security and other government markets throughout the world. With a history of innovation spanning 89 years, Raytheon provides state-of-the-art electronics, mission systems integration and other capabilities in the areas of sensing; effects; and command, control, communications and intelligence systems, as well as a broad range of mission support services. With headquarters in Waltham, Mass., Raytheon employs 72,000 people worldwide.[mappress]Source: raytheon, August 23, 2011; View post tag: Hardware View post tag: company View post tag: 28th View post tag: ship Industry news View post tag: News by topic Back to overview,Home naval-today USA: Raytheon Company Delivers 28th Ship Self-Defense System Hardware Share this articlelast_img read more
