U.S. Navy Eyes Saab Anti-Submarine Warfare System

first_imgDefence and security company Saab will demonstrate its anti-submarine warfare (ASW) training system, the AUV62-AT, for the U.S. Navy. The AUV62-AT is an artificial acoustic system that mimics a submarine.The Navy will evaluate Saab’s AUV62-AT against its systems through the ‘Foreign Comparative Testing’ (FCT) program.The demonstration is planned for summer 2018, with an option to continue testing into 2019.The U.S. Navy is investigating a replacement to its current ASW training system for its undersea warfare training range.“With submarine usage on the rise, anti-submarine warfare training is more crucial than ever. Some of today’s submarines are armed with heavyweight torpedoes that can destroy a massive vessel rather than simply disable it. AUV62-AT prepares operators for this threat,” says Görgen Johansson, senior vice president and head of Saab´s Business Area Dynamics.Saab’s AUV62-AT package trains operators in submarine surveillance, detection, identification, classification, and target engagement. The AUV62-AT is an artificial acoustic system that mimics a submarine in a way that is compatible with any torpedo- and sonar system on the market today. The system fully replaces the use of a submarine in the role as a maneuvering training target and can be launched from a ship, a submarine, or shore, Saab explained.last_img read more

Williams hit with eight-week ban

first_img League organisers said that Williams was free to resume playing on September 1 after the remaining games this season were taken into account. Williams received a yellow card following the first-half incident in Belfast last Friday night that resulted in Wales international Patchell being carried off and taken to hospital, where he was detained overnight. Ulster number eight Nick Williams has received an eight-week ban after being cited for striking Cardiff Blues back Rhys Patchell during a Guinness PRO12 game. The Ulster forward appeared before an independent PRO12 disciplinary committee on Wednesday. In a statement, the PRO12 said: “T he disciplinary committee, chaired by Roger Morris (Wales), along with Rhian Williams (Wales) and John Doubleday (England), having viewed footage of the incident and listened to representations made by and on behalf of the player, found that the incident was at the top end of the World Rugby sanctions for this type of offence, meriting a 16-week starting point. “In the absence of any aggravating factors and in light of several mitigating factors, including the player’s exemplary previous playing record, the disciplinary committee applied an eight-week reduction from the entry point and suspended the player from playing for eight weeks. “T aking into account the matches remaining this season, and two warm-up matches scheduled for the start of next season, Nick Williams is free to resume playing from Monday, 1 September 2015, and has the right of appeal.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Boca Tennis Champ Naomi Osaka Gives Up U.S. Citizenship to Represent Japan at 2020 Olympics

first_imgBoca Raton resident Naomi Osaka, two-time Grand Slam champion and currently the world’s third-ranked tennis player, is giving up her U.S. citizenship in order to represent Japan in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.Osaka, who is of Japanese and Haitian descent, was born in Japan before she and her family moved to South Florida in 2006 from New York, where they had lived since 2000.According to Japan’s Nationality Act, individuals who hold dual citizenship are required to choose one nationality before their 22nd birthday. Osaka turns 22 this Wednesday.She says, “It is a special feeling to aim for the Olympics as a representative of Japan. I think it will be more emotional to play for the pride of the country.”Osaka already represents Japan in the Fed Cup and on the WTA Tour. Most recently, she surged past Ashleigh Barty, winning the 2019 China Open.She also became the first Japanese player to win a major after defeated Serena Williams in last year’s U.S. Open final, before earning her second Grand Slam tournament win at the 2019 Australian Open.The Olympic Channel reports that Osaka will only be permitted to represent Japan next year if she plays for that country in at least one more national tennis competition organized by the International Tennis Federation.last_img read more

Gayle hails T20 star Lewis as ‘one for the future’

first_imgWEST Indies batting star Chris Gayle has marveled at the ability of T20 opening partner Evin Lewis, labeling him ‘one to look out for’ perhaps even in the games longer formats.Lewis and Gayle combined to good effect to devastate England on Saturday, the duo scoring a combined 91 at the top of the order in a comfortable 21-run win for the regional. Gayle hit a respectable 40 from 21, but as has been the case in their recent partnerships it was Lewis who dominated the scoring after getting 51 from 44 balls.“I’m enjoying batting with Evin,” said Gayle. “He has eased the pressure off me so we can dictate the way we go about it, but he won’t stop! I can slow down a bit but he won’t!”The two have been a destructive opening partnership, leading the charge for a revamped St Kitts and Nevis Patriots team that made the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) for the first time this season.Gayle, who often hears of comparison between himself and the young Trinidadian, also believes the player is capable of becoming a threat in the 50 over format.“Evin is one to look out for in the future too, especially in ODI (one-day international) cricket.”last_img read more

Wrestling Bees rally for win over West Genesee

first_img Tags: Baldwinsvillewrestling That 15-0 advantage vanished when WG won the next six bouts, four of them pins, the only close one at 132 pounds where Brandon Levin fell 4-0 to Gavin O’Neill.Not until 182 pounds did the Bees get another victory, Fred Pickard pinning Joe Comny in 3:48, followed by Dennis Kral (195 pounds) getting a second-period fall over Peter Dwinell to set up the late drama.From there, B’ville went to Phoenix for the Firebirds’ round-robin tournament on Saturday, where out of 17 teams the Bees did quite well, taking fifth place with 112.5 points.Cali was victorious at 106, getting to the championship round and then pinning Holland Patent’s Carter Williams in just 29 seconds to claim the title.No other B’ville wrestler reached the finals, but Clark got third place at 113, beating Syracuse’s Sidali Mohammed 6-1 for that spot as Naples, at 120, pinned Mexico’s George Smith for third.Also third, Mike Kral (182 pounds) pinned Phoenix’s Isaiah Scruton in 66 seconds in his consolation bracket final. Perez got fourth place at 285, with Jarred McMonagle fifth at 99 pounds and Jaden Prince sixth at 138 pounds.B’ville has a big meet against a Liverpool side fresh off winning last Saturday’s Brett Dixon Memorial Duals at Central Square, and then goes to Corning Saturday for the Greg Partridge Memorial Duals.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story But Naseim Perez turned it around at 285 pounds when he pinned Derek Dishaw in 1:42. Then Jarred McMonagle claimed a forfeit at 99 pounds.So it all hinged on the 106-pound finale between B’ville’s Keagan Hayes and WG’s Jack Wade. Seven seconds before the first period ended, Hayes pinned Wade, and the Bees had a team victory.Much earlier, B’ville had opened with three straight wins. Aiden Cali, at 113 pounds, pinned Anthony Orendorf in 2:30, with Mason Clark (120 pounds) pinning Sam Snyder in 1:46 and Max Naples (126 pounds) fighting past Dylan Pitonza in a 7-2 decision.center_img At one low point in last Wednesday’s Salt City Athletic Conference Metro division opener, the Baldwinsville wrestling team had dropped six consecutive bouts.Yet when it really mattered, the Bees stepped up with a big comeback that delivered a 45-37 victory over the Wildcats.Three bouts remained on the night and WG led 37-27, and any points gained in the remaining contests would mean a Wildcats victory.last_img read more

Syracuse stands 1 win from perfect regular season

first_imgAnge Bradley hasn’t thought about being undefeated.With all the goals, shutouts and wins over ranked opponents, the goal has remained the same for Syracuse’s head coach — win the National Championship.“The wins are great, but it doesn’t matter until tournament time,” Bradley said. “It’s just beginning.”Though Bradley isn’t concerned with the regular season, No. 1 Syracuse (15-0, 5-0 Atlantic Coast) looks to improve its best start in program history and go undefeated over the entirety of the regular season this weekend. All it needs is a win over No. 4 Duke (11-4, 2-3 ACC) Saturday at Williams Field at Jack Katz Stadium.“It’s definitely going to be a big game,” said Alma Fenne. “… We really want to end it on a good note with all 16 (wins) and I want to win everything in the regular season. I think all the girls want that.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSU will be tested by a stingy and aggressive Blue Devil defense Saturday, but the team has grown used to competing with the nation’s best throughout the regular season. Ranked first in RPI, a strength of schedule and win-loss metric, Bradley’s squad will face its 10th ranked opponent of the season Saturday.In those games against top-20 teams, Syracuse has tripled the score of its opponents, 33-10. After being ranked No. 4 in the NFHCA poll to start the season and elevated to No. 1 by the season’s fifth week, SU feels it’s found itself with a target on its back.“Everybody wants to be a spoiler and it’s easy to be an underdog,” Bradley said. “It’s hard what this team is doing right now.”ACC play in particular has been challenging, with all seven teams ranked within the top 14 and six within the top eight. Duke is the only conference opponent Syracuse has yet to play, but the Orange has outscored the rest of the ACC, 18-6.Despite some of the stiffest competition in the country, senior forward Emma Russell wouldn’t rather her team play in any other conference. Games against top-ranked teams in the country such as a 4-2 win against ACC rival No. 3 North Carolina have been the toughest tests.After falling behind with two first-half Tar Heel goals, Syracuse stormed back with four goals in the second half. The game stands as a microcosm of Syracuse’s season — even when outplayed for the majority of the game, SU found a way to win.“In my opinion, and in many other people’s opinions, it’s the best league in the country,” Russell said. “To be able to play in the ACC and then the ACC tournament prepares you so much for the NCAA because it’s constantly really hard competition.”The team may not be focused on its regular season success, but the wins have helped the Orange achieve a massive step to reaching its postseason goals. After beating Wake Forest 6-0 on Sunday, Syracuse clinched a share of first place in the ACC and a first-round bye in the conference tournament.Russell said playing two games instead of three in the ACC tournament will help Syracuse be well rested and play to its potential.While the matchup Saturday against Duke isn’t crucial in terms of seeding for the conference tournament, it will be considered when NCAA seeding is announced. Bradley said that the last six or seven games are the most important ones of the season relative to tournament seeding.Only six teams have ever done what Syracuse hopes to do — scratch its entire regular and postseason schedule clean. UNC did it both in 2007 and 1995, and Old Dominion four times from 1983-92.Syracuse wastes no time moving forward to its goals, even after beating Princeton in its final home game of the season Sunday to clinch the best start in program history.“We didn’t celebrate yet,” Weers said. “We are going to celebrate the 22nd of November.“That’s when we will be National Champions.” Comments Published on October 21, 2015 at 8:27 pm Contact Liam: lpsull01@syr.edu Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Zack Mahoney shows signs of improvement in place of Eric Dungey in loss to North Carolina State

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on November 12, 2016 at 7:54 pm Contact Tomer: tdlanger@syr.edu | @tomer_langer Zack Mahoney snagged a snap that was low and to his left, faked a handoff to Moe Neal and then stood tall in the pocket from his own 19-yard line. As the pocket collapsed, he unleashed a high-arcing bomb.Forty-six yards later the ball fell right into Amba Etta-Tawo’s hands as he ran it in the rest of the way for a touchdown that cut the Orange deficit to within one score.“Zack did a fabulous job handling the blitz, he threw some beautiful deep balls,” Syracuse head coach Dino Babers said.Syracuse (4-6, 2-4 Atlantic Coast) had its work cut out for it with star quarterback Eric Dungey ruled out an hour before the game started. Even though he had some up-and-downs, Mahoney played relatively well in his first full game of the season in a 35-20 loss to North Carolina State (5-5, 2-4) on Saturday in the Carrier Dome. He threw for a career-high 190 yards and a score.Babers said Dungey is “probably doubtful” for the Orange’s game with Florida State next week. Mahoney will likely start again.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“It’s not Zack’s job to play like Eric, although if he wants to, I’m all for it,” Babers said.After Dungey left last week’s game against Clemson in the first quarter with an injury, it was Austin Wilson who stepped in and played the rest of the way. To that point in the season, Mahoney was the only other quarterback to appear in the game.Last week, Babers called the situation right for Wilson to play, and all week leading up to this game he remained tight-lipped as to which quarterback would get reps, and playing time, if Dungey were to miss the game. Mahoney found out Friday night that he’d start Saturday.“Getting the reps in the spring and the summer … I felt a lot more comfortable,” Mahoney said. “The reps I’ve gotten with this offensive staff have been the most reps I’ve gotten with one team and one offensive coordinator since high school.”Mahoney had some struggles. On the second drive of the game he threw an interception deep down the right sideline. He got sacked three times on some plays where might have been able to throw the ball away sooner (although he did have to deal with a young offensive line that went to its third-string center at one point). And while he had some successful rushes, there were times when he ran right into a tackle.But there were some definite sign of improvement. In addition to the pass to Etta-Tawo, Mahoney tossed a deep pass down the sideline to Alvin Cornelius for 46 yards in the second quarter. In the fourth, a 34-yarder to Cornelius was called back due to a chop block penalty, but the ball was on the money.“What we expect is for the other 21 guys to elevate their game so that Zack can play under control and we still have an opportunity to win,” Babers said. “I thought that in the first half especially, Zack did that for us.” Commentslast_img read more
