    Denel missile completes its development and is certified

    The Denel Dynamics A-Darter infrared homing short-range air-to-air missile (AAM) has received its Type Certificate. This marks the end of the qualification and certification programme for the weapon.

    The A-Darter has been jointly developed by South Africa and Brazil, having been originally conceived by Denel Dynamics, part of South Africa’s State-owned Denel defence industrial group. The missile was jointly certified by the South African and Brazilian authorities, at a ceremony held in the Brazilian capital of Brasília on September 26, but not publicised at the time.

    “The Type Certificate received by Denel Dynamics is the official acknowledgement that the A-Darter missile meets the technical, operational, logistical, industrial and safety requirements and therefore this concludes the development of the A-Darter missile,” stated Denel. “Denel Dynamics has already received interest in the A-Darter missile from prospective clients and is very confident that the missile’s performance will meet the expectations of the prospective clients.”

    Rolls-Royce completes acquisition of German electrical aviation propulsion business

    Renowned UK industrial technology group Rolls-Royce announced on Tuesday that it had completed its purchase of Siemens’ eAircraft business. The deal was originally announced in June. eAircraft was the German electrification, automation and digitalisation group’s electric and hybrid-electric aerospace propulsion unit.

    “We are very pleased with the rapid execution of the necessary legal and procedural steps to complete this acquisition,” said Rolls-Royce Electrical Director Rob Watson. “We are welcoming our new colleagues into Rolls-Royce today and look forward to working with them to pioneer new technologies and solutions.”

    The British group sees this new acquisition as accelerating its plans to play a leading role in the development of electric and hybrid-electric propulsion systems for aviation – an advance that is being called the “third era” of aviation. “We are at the dawn of the ‘third era’ of aviation, which will bring a new class of quieter and cleaner air transport to the skies, and our new colleagues will add vital skills, expertise and new technology to our portfolio.”
