News Video on JSF

Just saw these videos on Yahoo News about the JSF designs. Pretty good overview and some interesting stuff. This was the first time I saw the inside of the cockpits, really cool.

I can't find anything on the JSF there either. Must be some kind of headline topic that got posted over.
Some vidio player opened up later but no JSF..

weird, I just checked both links and they worked fine for me. The link opens two windows Yahoo!FinanceVision, which is a static page, and Yahoo!Vision(Tech|TechLive). The second window, which is actually on top has a streaming video in the top left frame. That's were the JSF review is. I'm watching it again now as I type this. You might be missing a plugin, but I would think you'd get prompted if something were needed to run.

Best of luck, its worth trying agian!

Aerospace Daily: JSF "Loser" Still Gains, Analysts Say

<p>Source: <a href="http://www.aviationnow.com/avnow/news/channel_military.jsp?view=story&amp;id=news/mjsf1025.xml">AviationNow</a><p><b>Aerospace Daily: JSF &quot;Loser&quot; Still Gains, Analysts Say </b><p>
<p align="left"><font size=2><i>By Nick Jonson/Aerospace Daily </i></font><p>25-Oct-2001 8:03 AM U.S. EDT
<p><img src="http://www.aviationnow.com/media/images/news/LOGOS/Ard.gif" align="left">
<p>The Pentagon's decision on the Joint Strike Fighter, to be announced Oct. 26, could mean $2 billion of annual business for the major subcontractors on the winning team. But don't expect companies on the losing team to be permanently crippled by the decision, analysts say. <p>Paul Nisbet, senior aerospace analyst with JSA Research in Providence, R.I., said companies on the winning team would likely receive funding for large amounts of research and development work over the next six to seven years. <p>&quot;It could mean a couple billion each year, including the acquisition of the 12 test aircraft,&quot; Nisbet said. &quot;But it won't mean big profits until the end of the decade, when full-scale production begins.&quot; <p>Brett Lambert, vice-president of DFI International, a research and consulting firm based in Washington, said the winning team will reap both economic rewards and the opportunity to develop stronger business relationships with transatlantic partners. <p>&quot;On the business side, it represents about $200 billion, which is a significant amount - the biggest contract ever awarded, in fact,&quot; Lambert said. &quot;But more important is the coalition that will build it, from the opportunity to join in sophisticated integration work to establishing a business relationship with European companies, especially with British [companies].&quot; <p>Lambert said the decision &quot;has this cascading effect. That's why companies are working so hard to get the contract. It's because it has such as multiplier effect.&quot; <p>One of the factors that might soften the impact for the losing team is that many aircraft programs have been restructured before the aircraft themselves have gone into production, Nisbet said. <p>The military services are likely to resist the current variants of the JSF program, he said. <p>Three JSF variants are planned to meet the requirements of the U.S. Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps and the British navy and air force. <p>The variants include a conventional takeoff and landing (CTOL) aircraft for the Air Force, a heavier aircraft carrier suitable (CV) variant for the Navy, and a short takeoff and vertical landing (STOVL) variant for the Marines and the British. <p>Total cost for the first 3,000 aircraft is expected to reach $200 billion, according to the Congressional Budget Office. The Air Force plans to buy 1,763 JSFs, the Navy 480, the Marine Corps 609, the British air force 90 and the British navy 60. <p>The United Kingdom is a full partner in the program, having contributed $2 billion, or 8 percent of the total $25 billion development budget. <p>Plans call for the first aircraft to be delivered in 2009. Once in production, the aircraft will complement the Navy's F/A-18E/F Super Hornet and replace the Air Force's F-16 Fighting Falcon and A-10 &quot;Wart Hog.&quot; <p>It would also provide the Marines with a single STOVL aircraft to replace the AV-8B Harrier II jump jet and F/A-18C/D Hornet and replace the Royal Navy's Sea Harrier and the Royal Air Force's Harrier GR-7. <p>But the Navy may prefer a heavier, twin-engine aircraft for longer-range missions while the Air Force may want lighter-weight aircraft, Nisbet said. The Navy may come to rely more on the F/A-18 while Air Force may continue relying on its F-16 block 60 aircraft, he added. <p>&quot;This [the JSF] will be a sub-optimized aircraft with a lot of extra parts given the requirements for a jump jet. It's definitely a compromise between all the different missions,&quot; he said. &quot;Somewhere down the line, it may be broken up into different programs.&quot; <p>That happened to the Tactical Fighter Experimental (TFX) program for the F-111, as well as in the competition for the F-16, one of whose prototypes later became the basis for the F/A-18, he said. <p>If the JSF program is restructured, companies on both teams could be contracted to do some of the work, Nisbet said. <p>As a result, it remains unclear as to what constitutes the so-called &quot;losing team,&quot; Lambert said. <p>This is reinforced by the fact that many of the same companies are on both teams, Nisbet said. <p>Companies on the Boeing team include BAE Systems (for the fuel system, vehicle management system, cockpit display, and electronic warfare system), Honeywell International (subsystems), TRW (communication, navigation, identification systems), <p>Goodrich Corp. (fuel system), Pratt &amp; Whitney (JSF119 engine and exhaust nozzle), Raytheon Co. (mission systems), Rolls-Royce PLC (vertical lift propulsion system, attitude control system) and Hexcel (composite raw materials). <p>Companies on the Lockheed Martin team include BAE Systems (active interceptor and electronic warfare systems), L-3 Communications (ICP panel), Rolls Royce PLC (roll off-take ducts), TRW and Rockwell Collins (communication, navigation and identification systems), Northrop Grumman Corp. (structures), Pratt &amp; Whitney (JSF 119 engine), Honeywell International (power thermal management system), BF Goodrich (landing gear system), and Hexcel (carbon fiber). <p>Regardless of which team wins, some of the work could be divided among companies on both teams because of their expertise, or because the division has been requested by key lawmakers, Lambert said. <p>&quot;That certainly seems more likely as we get closer to Friday,&quot; Lambert said. &quot;But that's something that I don't see likely to happen.&quot; <p>Despite losing the contract, companies on the losing team are not likely to exit the fighter aircraft business altogether, Nisbet said. <p>&quot;The same kind of thing was said about the ASPJ (Airborne Self-Protection Jammer) electronic warfare program and they said the same thing about the C-17,&quot; he said. <p>The biggest impact for the losing companies will be the perception among the aviation community that the losing team lost the contract for the last manned fighter aircraft ever made, Lambert said. <p>&quot;This (program) will extend out to 2040, when the military starts to roll out UCAVs,&quot; he said. &quot;The programmatic impact won't be felt for some time. I think the impact will more likely be the perception in the aviation community that someone has been blessed with the last manned fighter aircraft.&quot;<br clear="all"><p>
