  • Sikorsky's X-2 can't be scaled up to heavy-lift helo, executive says
    Scott Starrett, vice president for government business development at Sikorsky, said the company is not able to scale up its X-2 high-speed helicopter to the size of a heavy-lift helo. "There is a question on the scalability on the X-2 technology at the medium class," Starrett said. "When you get to the utility-medium or attack-medium class, it scales nicely." But with significant increases in size and weight "you starting getting up to that kind of payload and physical size and it gets to be a different challenge for the technology."

  • TSA bill amendment would ban scanners showing detailed body images
    An amendment to the TSA Authorization Act of 2011 that would end the use of scanners that produce detailed images of travelers' bodies passed the House Subcommittee on Transportation Security on Wednesday. The proposal gives the Transportation Security Administration 90 days to install software that produces generic images on the machines. "This amendment will protect Americans' dignity and ensure, to the extent an AIT machine can, our nation's transportation infrastructure remains secure," said Rep. Chip Craavack, R-Minn., who introduced the amendment. The TSA did not comment on the proposal. MSNBC/Overhead Bin blog (9/14) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
