Strand Aerospace Malaysia signs an MOU with a UK High Tech Company at LIMA’2019


Following the support and advice of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohammad for development of future Aircraft in Malaysia, Samad Aerospace, a UK high-tech company is signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with one of the top aerospace  engineering companies of Malaysia, Strand Aerospace, for joint development of this promising VTOL electric/hybrid business jet on 29th of March at the stand of Samad Aerospace at LIMA Air Show hall A-135 UK pavilion.
This marks a stepping stone for the Malaysia Aerospace industry to be a leading country in the forthcoming 3rd aviation revolution. The MOU signing took place at the UK Pavilion, Mahsuri International Exhibition Centre (MIEC) on Friday 29th March 2019 between the CEO of Samad Aerospace, Seyed Mohseni and the Business Development Manager of Strand Aerospace Sdn. Bhd, Afif bin Badrulhisham, and witnessed by the Minister of Enterpreneur Development, Datuk Mohd Redzuan Md Yusof.
SAMAD Aerospace is developing a range of completely new and innovative, vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) electric powered passenger aircraft, the E-Starling.  
The disruptive technology start-up in the UK aerospace industry is pioneering the design, development and build of the world’s fastest vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) electric and hybrid-electric aircraft at 1500 miles range and up to 460 miles per hour speed that significantly reduces travel time (~50%) for air ambulance applications, intercity air transporters and international air travel to improve connectivity and civilian air transportation worldwide.
Based in Cranfield Technology Park, UK, the company’s aircraft will enable true point-to-point air travel over long distances. The E-Starling aircraft will have unique advantages over existing business jets which still require time-consuming trips to and from a limited number of airports, and over helicopters which fly at much slower speeds and over significantly shorter distances.
The world had seen two aviation revolutions since the invention of Wright brothers.  The conversion of wooden biplanes to fast metal monoplanes followed by the integration of jet engines have enabled massive progression in world aerospace industry. Today, aircraft electrification, VTOL (therefore, no need of busy airports), autonomy and exploitation of artificial intelligence (AI) are critical enabling technologies to unlock the upcoming wave of 3rd aviation revolution.  Globally, world-leading aircraft manufacturers are working towards realizing this future, with significant investments are made today in the US and China to accelerate development and production of innovative more-electric next-generation aircraft.
SAMAD Aerospace has been developing both of its manned and unmanned aircraft during the last two years via investments from executive team and business angels.  The conceptual designs are finished in 2018, with two scaled prototypes have been built and flown; and showcased in reputable international airshows in Singapore, Geneva and Farnborough this year.  The development and build of the first full scale prototype of this aircraft under certification needs approximately £80 million of investment. Given the potential of being a UK flagship project, Samad Aerospace has recently been shortlisted among top six companies out of 252 firms applied to United Kingdom Research and Innovation (UKRI) to receive approximately £40 million of grant in the next five years.
CEO of SAMAD Aerospace, Seyed Mohseni, said “We are intrigued to have the collaboration with Malaysia in joint-manufacturing of the next-generation aircraft E-Starling. Malaysia has great capabilities and the growing potential in manufacturing aircraft components and parts for many aerospace prime companies; involvement of Malaysia to take part in realising the 3rd global aviation revolution will accelerate the nation’s development to become the world-leading aerospace hub in the region.”

TUDM menerajui pelbagai misi menggunakan Airbus A400M


Langkawi, 28 Mac 2019 – Pengunaan empat buah pesawat pengangkut udara taktikal Airbus A400M milik Angkatan Tentera Udara DiRaja Malaysia (TUDM) telah membolehkan Malaysia menjadi peneraju rantau dalam pelbagai operasi bantuan kemanusiaan dan bencana (HADR) bagi rantau Asia-Pasifik.

TUDM telah menerima pesawat A400M yang keempat mereka pada tahun 2017, menjadikan mereka sebagai pengendali global pertama yang berdiri gagah dengan memiliki skuadron lengkap.

Sehingga kini, pesawat pengangkut tersebut terlibat dalam enam operasi HADR bagi menyampaikan bahan bantuan kemanusian kepada mereka yang amat memerlukan.  A400M juga turut mengambil bahagian dalam sesi latihan pelbagai hala, dan menyertai misi pengisian bahan api di udara untuk mempertingkatkan lagi kemampuan operasi TUDM.

Prestasi yang cemerlang serta tahap pengunaan yang tinggi telah membolehkan Airbus memberi pengiktirafan kepada skuadron ke-22 TUDM di LIMA 2019 di atas kejayaan mereka merakam jam penerbangan yang paling tinggi di kalangan semua pengendali A400M di seluruh dunia.

Sebuah plak untuk memperingati kejayaan cemerlang ini telah disampaikan kepada Yg Bhg General Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Hj Affendi Buang, Ketua Tentera Udara DiRaja Malaysia, oleh Jean-Marc Nasr, Presiden Airbus Asia-Pasifik, di pertunjukan udara tersebut.

Berucap kepada pemberita semasa sesi taklimat media di LIMA 2019, Lt Col Yusrizal Zain, pegawai komandan skuadron ke-22, berkata: “Pemilikan A400M telah membolehkan Malaysia menyokong pelbagai operasi HADR dengan lebih efektif berbanding sebelumnya.  Ini disebabkan kerana kini kami memiliki keupayaan untuk terbang lebih jauh dan lebih pantas dengan membawa berat bebanan yang lebih tinggi berbanding pesawat lain. Beroperasi di landasan yang rosak, lebih pendek mahupun tidak diturap bukan lagi merupakan satu halangan kerana reka bentuk dan kemampuan A400M yang unik mampu menangani semua cabaran ini.”

Sehingga kini, TUDM A400M telah melaksanakan operasi HADR di Marawi, Filipina (Julai 2017), Chittagong, Bangladesh (Ogos 2017, Januari 2018 dan Julai 2018), Vientiane, Laos (July 2018), dan Palu, Indonesia (Oktober 2018).

Misi tersebut turut merangkumi aktiviti penyampaian bahan bantuan kemanusiaan seperti makanan, pakaian, ubat-ubatan dan air sehingga kepada membawa kargo bersaiz besar seperti jentera pengaut tepat ke pusat penerimaan di mana ia diperlukan. A400M terbukti cemerlang di Palu, di mana ia mampu mendarat walaupun dengan bebanan yang penuh di landasan yang mengalami permasalahan teruk untuk beroperasi kerana keretakan yang dialami akibat gempa bumi.

Selain dari misi HADR, A400M milik TUDM turut melaksanakan aktiviti pengisian bahan api di udara dengan pelbagai pesawat seperti F/A-18s, Su-30s dan Hawks.  Mereka juga turut menyertai latihan pelbagai hala seperti Pitch Black di Australia (Julai-Ogos 2018) dan BERSAMA LIMA di Singapura (Oktober 2018).

“Walaupun A400M secara idealnya lebih sesuai digunakan untuk menyokong misi kemanusiaan di rantau Asia-Pasifik, namun ciri pesawat yang serba boleh, bermakna kami juga berupaya melaksanakan misi pengisian bahan api di udara untuk memantap serta mempertingkatkan lagi keupayaan operasi TUDM. Pesawat ini juga merupakan duta terbaik Malaysia semasa pelaksanaan misi pelbagai hala, dan mempamerkan kemampuan kendiri kami berbanding tentera udara lain dari seluruh dunia,” ujar Lt Col Yusrizal.

Contract details are to be specified during the fifteenth Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition 2019 through March 26 to 30 on Langkawi island.
“Malaysianoperatorsmaderequestsforpurchasing up toeightAnsat, Mi-8/17 and Ka-32A11BC helicopters. 

We are currently providing consultations to customers to clarify technical configurations of the helicopters planned for delivery as well as other organizational matters”, said Igor Chechikov, Deputy General Director for after-sales support and head of the delegation of Russian Helicopters Holding Company.

The inquiries of Malaysian partners were partly a result of the South Asian Heli Tour organized by JSC “Russian Helicopters”. InNovemberandDecember 2018 two new helicopters, one Mi-171А2 and one Ansat, made a tour over 5 thousand kilometers in length, holding demonstration shows inChina, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and Malaysia.
“Southeast Asia is one of strategically important regions for us. We see numerous opportunities for increasing the export volume of civil rotorcraft”.

AIRBUS C295 MPA AND MARITIME SURVEILLANCE SOLUTIONS IDEAL FOR MALAYSIA



Langkawi, 27 March 2018 – The Airbus C295 maritime patrol aircraft (MPA), as well as the 
company’s coastal and land surveillance solutions, offer the best options for Malaysia’s
requirements, said Johan Pelissier, Head of Airbus Defence and Space, South East Asia.

Speaking to reporters today at a media briefing during LIMA 2019, Mr Pelissier said that Airbus will respond to a maritime patrol aircraft request for information (RFI) issued by Malaysia.

“Recent comments by senior officials indicate that maritime patrol aircraft are now a priority due to Malaysia’s strategic environment as a maritime nation, and a need to beef up the country’s surveillance and security capability and have better situation awareness,” he added.

“The C295 MPA represents the best combination of value and capability for Malaysia. It offers the lowest risks, given that it is not a concept aircraft that is unproven in service. It also has the best acquisition, operating and life-cycle costs in its category.”

The aircraft features a modern mission system and comprehensive sensor suites, which the company developed in-house. This presents lower risks compared to aircraft that incorporate crucial third-party systems. Maintenance costs are three times lower than other comparable platforms, and it is also six times more fuel efficient than jet aircraft.

The C295 MPA is also in service on maritime patrol and surveillance mission with operators in 
Brazil, Chile, Oman, and Portugal. Canada has also ordered the platform. This makes it the only maritime patrol aircraft in its category that is in service today.

For broader coastal surveillance requirements, Airbus could tailor a comprehensive solution that combines products and services across the company’s cutting-edge portfolio.

“Such a comprehensive solution would meet the needs of multiple national agencies. It could
include manned and unmanned aircraft, helicopters, satellite imagery, intelligence systems,
and data analytics. It could also be designed and implemented in-country,” said Mr Pelissier.

In the Space segment, Airbus offers everything from the smallest electronic parts to very 
high-resolution Earth observation instruments and today’s most reliable communication satellites.

Malaysia is an existing customer with MEASAT-3b, the largest satellite ordered by the country’s 
communications sector, which Airbus manufactured and launched in 2014. The company has also partnered the Malaysian Remote Sensing Agency (ARSM), which is equipped with a direct 
receiving station and receives imagery from the Airbus constellation of Earth observation satellites.

“Our Earth observation satellites provide imagery that support national security, disaster 
preparedness and management, and climate change. Our satellites also meet a wide range of civil and military secure communications requirements. In short, Airbus delivers the best value in Space,” said Mr Pelissier.

Airbus is the largest international exhibitor at LIMA 2019, reflecting both its long-standing 
relationships with Malaysian customers and the enduring partnerships that the company has
with the country’s aerospace industry.

The Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) is the first export customer for the Airbus A400M 
tactical airlifter, and a highly successful operator of this new-generation transport platform. 
The aircraft have proven especially valuable in the numerous humanitarian assistance and disaster relief (HADR) operations that the RMAF has undertaken around the region.

“The A400M one of the most visible symbols of Airbus’ successful relationship with Malaysia,” 
said Mr Pelissier. “The humanitarian missions have allowed Malaysia to help its neighbours at 
their time of great need. Airbus is proud to have partnered the RMAF in many of them.”

Malacca-based CTRM manufactures various parts of the A400M, while local maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) firm Sepang Aircraft Engineering provides
 material and technical support for the airlifters. Airbus is also building up the RMAF’s expertise on the A400M, and gradually transferring support activity to a local workforce.

“Airbus is committed to helping Malaysia meet its requirements, and to supporting your country’s aerospace industry,” said Mr Pelissier.
