The Spanish Navy frigate is therefore contributing to NATO’s ballistic missile defense system while she also takes the opportunity to train in other conventional air defense tactics.In this ASD-15 edition, the F-102 detected and tracked a ballistic missile during its trajectory out of the atmosphere. The target was subsequently destroyed by an AA missile launched from a US Navy destroyer. Other ships from the multinational force activated their defense systems against two targets simulating anti-ship missiles.This is the third time the Spanish frigate has successfully detected and tracked a target of this type, thanks to the new capability recently installed on board.Originally established at the end of the 90’s, the MTMD (Maritime Theatre Missile Defense) Forum, which comprises NATO and non-NATO nations was conceived as a co-operation body for participating navies to develop improved cooperation and interoperability in sea-based missile defense using a common command and control system.The trials and exercises will continue in the coming days. The Almirante Juan de Borbón is scheduled to launch an Evolved Sea Sparrow Missile (ESSM) against a target simulating a modern anti-ship missile. The frigate will return to her home port at the beginning of November.Image: Spanish Navy October 22, 2015 Share this articlelast_img read more

Raiders coach Jon Gruden deflects Antonio Brown trade questions

Posted on by

first_img“Well, I don’t like veteran players, so I’ll just leave it at that,” he said (via The Athletic). “I’m not going to speculate about anybody. We are going to look at every vehicle possible. Certainly the financial part of every acquisition has to be considered, but we are going to look into everybody’s availability and what we think is best for our team.”  When asked if the Raiders’ were one of the franchises that have contacted Pittsburgh to work on a potential deal for the 30-year-old wide receiver, Gruden said: “I don’t know. … I don’t have any comment on any of that. I am not going to take the cheese on that one.”Gruden also was asked whether Brown’s age or his desire for a big contract would play a factor in the Raiders’ interest in acquiring the receiver. He didn’t completely deny that Oakland might be interested.  Related News Raiders coach Jon Gruden remained coy about the Raiders’ interest in Antonio Brown. Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert revealed last week that three teams have inquired about Brown’s availability, though he confirmed more organizations have shown interest since then. Brown met with Steelers owner Art Rooney II last week to “clear the air” and both sides “agreed that it is time to move on.” The Steelers have indicated that they “will dictate” his next destination and they won’t settle for anything less than what they believe the star receiver is worth, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.Brown, who has spent his entire nine-year career with the Steelers, tallied 1,297 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns in 2018. 49ers out of Antonio Brown sweepstakes, report sayslast_img read more
