The Voice of the Global Profession
We speak on the Global stage about issues impacting the engineering profession, and creating a world where the public can be confident that engineering decisions affecting their lives are made by qualified and ethically accountable professionals
The Kenya Society of Engineer (KSE) is the professional organization that regulates the activities of all Certified Public Engineers (the CPE (K)s) in Kenya. It was established in 1978 by the laws of Kenya under CAP 531. Since then, KSE has been dedicated to development and regulation of the accountancy profession in Kenya that upholds the public interest and enhances its contribution and that of its members to national economic growth and development.
VTG Awarded $80M Hypersonics Engineering Prime Contract from Navy Strategic Systems Programs
VTG, an industry-leading provider of modernization and digital transformation solutions to Defense and Intelligence Community customers, announced today that it has been awarded a five-year $80 million prime contract to provide end-to-end engineering services for the Conventional Prompt Strike program, the Navy’s hypersonic strike capability. The U.S. Navy Strategic Systems Programs awarded the contract to VTG on a sole source basis.
The Defense Department has identified hypersonics as a critical technology vital to strengthening the United States military’s technological superiority and maintaining national security. CPS will provide the Navy with a hypersonic conventional weapon capable of precise, long-range strike against time critical and high value targets. The missile, which is comprised of a hypersonic glide body and a two-stage booster, will fly at speeds exceeding Mach 5 and be launched from both surface ships and submarines. The Navy is the lead designer for the common hypersonic missile that will be fielded by both the Navy and the Army. The Navy’s first CPS weapon system will be deployed aboard the Zumwalt-class destroyers followed by the Virginia-class attack submarines.
“For over two years, VTG has worked closely and collaboratively with Navy SSP, the CPS program office, and our industrial base partners to advance hypersonic technologies,” said John Hassoun, VTG president and CEO. “We’re proud to be a part of the Navy’s innovation ecosystem and excited to field this leap-ahead capability to the Fleet.”
VTG will provide the CPS Program Office, a division of SSP, with research and development expertise, advanced systems engineering, test planning and test engineering, integrated logistics, and a wide range of programmatic and technical services.
VTG delivers modernization and digital transformation solutions that expand America’s competitive advantage in the modern battlespace. Headquartered in Chantilly, Virginia, VTG provides full lifecycle engineering for naval, aerospace, network, and digital requirements. Whether at sea, in the air, on land, or in cyberspace, VTG delivers Tomorrow’s Transformation Today. For more information, visit us at www.VTGdefense.com.
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) in Disaster Management and Surveying
Usage of drones is ascending these days in discreet fields like security agencies, photography, surveying etc., Remote sensing satellites are being used to survey the disaster hit areas. The data from these satellites is combined with ground based data. Drones can be effectively used to survey the ground data which is inaccessible or time-consuming.
North-Eastern Space Applications Center (NE-SAC) of ISRO has tested UAVs to assess several regional problems in North-Eastern parts, ranging from measuring diseased paddy fields to damage caused by frequent landslides, according to the space agency. UAVs can perform efficient surveys for disaster-prone or inaccessible areas, quick damage assessment of landslides, earthquakes and other disasters.
