RE-Project Airwolf 02-27-1982


For those who wish to TRANSLATE This Internal Memo.. Here it is in TEXT FORM


RE: FILE A56-7W PROJECT AIRWOLF
27th February 1982

To the Deputy Director

The helicopter arrived at NAWS today and underwent standard flight tests with varied payloads attached. It was decided by the design team that both port and starboard missile launchers should be removed due to instability while executing high speed evasion maneuvers. The test pilot "HAWKE" also noted (the larger pod frame caused severe windsheer while pushing the aircrafts current top speed in a straight line)

Dr Moffet suggests the missile pods be placed under the fuselage near the centre for stability when firing, he also insists they need to be adapted so they could be deployed and retracted as and when needed. A napkin slipped within a file stated (SHE MUST BE A SHEEP IN THE EYES OF THE WORLD!!!) I concur with the team’s current findings due to the stability issues. I also advise that funding for concealed armament would remove later costs and requirements for an additional rolling ground unit.

Professor Probert has been in contact to confirm the aerodynamic panels have passed all wind tunnel testing along with standard durability tests against low calibre projectiles. Patterson Enterprises security clearance has been approved, in turn they are now contracted to make the necessary modifications to the airframe and attach the new panels along with the prototype nose cone.

A supersonic test flight is scheduled for the 14th of March, if the panel fitting is completed on time.

Dr Robert Winchester has asked again about joining the test pilot program, as per your instruction I have informed him that, for the moment he is needed on the ground and in the lab working on the E.D.C.C.

Harlan Jenkins and Charles St. Clair are still undergoing security checks before they can be approved for the backup test pilot and co-pilot positions. Dr Moffet has yet to request authorization to fly the aircraft and has spent the majority of his lab time working upon the firmware and the attack computers stack analysis feature.

Dr Karen Hansen failed to pass security checks for eyes on access due to her connection with A.P.E.X. but Dr Moffet insists we need access to her “Helmet Mounted Fire Control Targeting System” which she developed for Project T.H.O.R. I concur if the system is viable and already in production then A.P.E.X should be approached if we cannot obtain the information from Dr Hansen indirectly. Integrating this code and hardware into our system (if viable) will also reduce the development costs of the projects helmet control.

I propose we approach Dr Hansen with a project grant that is in-line with her recent white paper “regarding pilotless aircraft” and arrange a meeting between Dr Hansen and Dr Moffet. If the meeting goes well i shall further arrange a meeting between Dr Hansen and the current test pilot for measuring and fitting of the headset while a duplicate prototype can be fitted to the helmet and configured to the targeting box within the visor.

Yours Sincerely

Dr Marella Bouvie PHD

AUTHOR NOTES:
I live in the UK, my computer is EN-GB not EN-US, Airwolf is an american show, as such i tried to keep this internal memo as american as i could. Such as using the USA word "maneuvers"  instead of  UK word "manoeuvres" and USA word "Authorized" instead of UK word "Authorised"
consider that before nitpicking typos.

If you haven't seen the airwolf season 2 episode "moffetts ghost" or the 1983 film "blue thunder" then the elaboration on Airwolf's Dr Karen Hansen wont work for you, it WILL WORK for everyone who has seen that episode and that film. Also in the Movie/Pilot its spelt Moffet, in the season 2 episode its spelt Moffett.

When/If more are created, clicking the "Internal Mail" TAG/Label below will search the blog for other posts with that TAG. You'll find the Label: in-between the Reactions and the Comments (ya know them two things people never appear to care about)
