Yo dude. I'm at work. Gonna go home at 3 and play drums for a while. Then I'm going to try and squeeze in some electrical soldering before dinner. I'll probably have a baked potato while watching King of the Hill. Then people will show up and we'll have a music-band practice-rehearsal.

drinking coffee, working on photos for my etsy store, thinking about eating a cinnamon bagel. Gonna go get walked by the dog, record a song for a soundtrack in my mind, make a flyer, drink some drinks, have a band "practice" of sorts, and watch My Name is Earl on dvd. Dinner will happen somewhere in there. And watering of all the plants. I should probably shower.

that's cute. the Dutch navy calling a destroyer a frigate.

Posted: Nov 12, 2008 4:49 pm
 
Pffft. That thing looks like a dinghy compared to an American Destroyer. I guess it's okay for defending Europeans.

LC-Fregat

One helicopter. What a joke. An American Air Craft Carrier has like 50 jets that could take out a country's entire infra-structure in a matter of minutes. No wonder the Dutch are always running to us to bail them out of some War with The Germans. America rules!

actually, they didn't. along with an effective resistance offering more in the way of intelligence than confrontation with the germans. on the flip side, they DID have one of the biggest and most active nazi parties outside of germany.

This ship ain't a destroyer and your navy got ships of the same kind.

One helicopter. What a joke. An American Air Craft Carrier has like 50 jets that could take out a country's entire infra-structure in a matter of minutes.

Taking out a country's infra structure is not the purpose of this ship.

"The missions assigned to this class of frigates are:

Primary:

Anti-Air Warfare (to provide local area air defense of a task group against airborne targets, in particular against saturating anti-ship missile attacks).
To provide a Flagship function for a Taskforce or a Flottilla (This applies only to the LCFs, NOT the NLFs, which will lack command facilities).
Secondary:
Anti-Surface Warfare (to provide a significant fire power against surface targets (other ships) by surface-to-surface missiles and guns as well as the multi-function shipboard helicopter.
Anti-Submarine Warfare (to provide an anti-submarine defense by using a heavy ASW helicopter)
Naval Fire Support (to provide fire support for amphibious landings using the 127mm gun)"


Size obviously doesn't matter for ships with this purpose.

Plus the detection system was the most advanced in the world at the time.

"For sensors the design features the APAR system, which has been build and designed by the Netherlands, Germany, and Canada. This is a high powered Active Phased Array Radar, which is smaller, yet considerably more powerful, than the American SPY-1 phased array radar. It can track up to 250 targets at one time, and at the same time can function as a illumination radar for up to 16 targets (with 32 missiles in the air), removing the need for seperate illumination radars. Because of its relatively small design it was possible to locate the four APAR panels in a single structure high above sea level. In a move which cause some last-minute delays the Dutch decided to have the APAR mount redesigned, so that in the future the guidance equipment for Standard TBMD missiles can be fitted. The long range search radar is the SMART-L phased array 3D radar. This radar is not stabilized, but the emission-angle of the radar is adapted to the curent sea state and angle. It has a range of up to 400 km, and can track up to 1000 targets. Mounted above the APAR, at the very top of the ship is a Sirius long range dual band infra red seeker, with a maximum range of roughly 30 km. Mounted on the hull is a Atlas Electronik active sonar."

For the chopper:

"NH-90 Helicopter: This is the NFH (Nato Frigate Helicopter), as developed by NH Industries , which in itself is a consortium formed by four companies: Augusta, Eurocopter France, Eurocopter Deutschland, and Fokker. The NH-90 is a twin engine 6 ton helicopter with a 3 ton useful load. It has a low radar signature fuselage, a four-bladed rotor, fly-by-wire controls, and multiple redundancy for all major systems.

The NH90 will be equipped with sonobuoys or a dipping sonar, a tactical radar, a Magnetic Anomaly Detector (MAD), a tactical Forward Looking Infra-Red (FLIR) system, an Electronic Warfare System, different anti-submarine weapons, and a complete set of passive and active protection measures against the possible threats. It will be capable of night operations, and operations in bad weather."


As you see, an ideal chooper for detection.
And we're not battling Russia anymore, we're fighting terrorists in inflatable boats as you might remember.


Both Jack of Heart and the Magnetix played an awesome show yesterday in Amsterdam. Whoooaaahhh, what a night!!!!

ok, this has piqued my curiosity:

The end of November will also mark the end of the Astro Journals at UCP; so we're having a little gathering to reminisce, say farewell, and ring out the Astro Era in style. It's been a great hundred years!

We will also raffle off the Most Inappropriate Gift Ever

this will be one work function i will actually attend.
