NAE™ Project: Update

Saturday, March 12, 2011

Ladies and Gentlemen:

It was a beautiful day in the Spanaway area as Von Armstrong, Chris Green, Omar Chramosta, Jon Higley, Tom Tiede, Keith Zanghi and Ed Shadle met to work on the leading challenger for the 763 mph world land speed record.

Tom and Ed packed up the 7 1/2 foot long scale model of the Eagle and prepared it for shipping to Lenovo Computers. The model is very realistic - complete with sponsor logos from Signs by Tomorrow in Houston South. They have a large event coming in April and the Eagle will be put on display for all to view. Lenovo is lending us Professional-gradeC20 and D20 ThinkStations to perform engineering on the Eagle, including extensive CFD and FEA analysis. What was once limited to IBM Mainframes, computers and software today can bring this to your small business.

Keith, Chris, Tom, Omar and Ed all had a hand in working on our mid-wheel area today. As you've been reading, we've built some ballistic inner shields to protect the fuselage from the mid-wheels. Today the team worked on the latch mechanism for both mid-wheel belly doors.

Towards the end of the day Keith and Ed reviewed their upcoming presentation at this year's COE 2011 Annual PLM Conference and TechniFair in Orlando. The presentation contrasts the old and new technologies used to build it. When the Eagle was first built in the '50s, it was done with slide rules and drafting tables; two tools today that someone under 30 (maybe even 40) might not know ever existed. In its new role, the North American Eagle™ is being design using HP50g Scientific and Graphing Calculators and Professional-gradeC20 and D20 ThinkStations. All of our engineers and designers have an HP 50g in their briefcase and access to Lenovo ThinkStations for FEA, CFD and Design Software.
