Serbian company UTVA is developing a light attack aircraft, known as the Kobac (sparrowhawk). It is based on the Lasta-95 piston-powered trainer that has been sold to the Iraqi air force, and was formerly known as the Lasta-TP. Designed by UTVA in conjunction with the military technical institute and Yugoimport-SDPR, the turboprop-powered Kobac is being offered for weapons training and counter-insurgency roles.
Total Aircraft Services (Booth No. 6151) of Van Nuys, Calif., has completed a radar pod for a Gulfstream III operated by NASA Dryden Flight Research Center. An Earth Science Capabilities Demonstration project, the unmanned air vehicle synthetic aperture radar (UAVSAR) is jointly supported by NASA-Dryden and NASA-Jet–Propulsion Laboratory.
