  • Kecelakaan Lion Air: Indonesia dan India Ragukan Produk Pesawat Boeing

    ilustrasi
    SOUTHASIAN STUDY CLUB (SASC/InSAF) || Otoritas penerbangan di Indonesia dan India mendorong lebih banyak pelatihan simulator untuk para pilot Boeing Co 737 MAX menyusul kecelakaan mematikan Lion Air, yang belum hilang dalam ingatan semua masyarakat.

    Permintaan ini merupakan wujud keraguan beberapa negara mengenai keaman pesawat Boeing 737 MAX.

    Dilansir dari Reuters (7/12), Chief Executive Officer Boeing Dennis Muilenburg mengatakan  pada hari Kamis (6/12) bahwa dia sangat yakin mengenai keselamatan 737 MAX, versi terbaru.

    "Kami tahu pesawat kami aman, dan Kami belum mengubah filosofi desain kami." kata Dennis.

    Komentar Muilenburg datang pada hari yang sama ketika regulator penerbangan India mengatakan pilot 737 MAX harus dilatih pada simulator yang dapat mereplikasi dugaan skenario yang menyebabkan kecelakaan.

    Di lain pihak, Kementerian Perhubungan Indonesia mengatakan akan segera memberlakukan persyaratan baru untuk pelatihan simulator.

    Pada hari Kamis (6/12), Lion Air mengkonfirmasi laporan Reuters sebelumnya bahwa pihaknya sedang mempertimbangkan membatalkan pesanan 737 MAX setelah pesawat jet itu jatuh ke Laut Jawa pada 29 Oktober, menewaskan semua 189 orang di dalamnya. (sumber)

  • India's GSLV Boosted Second Mission to Moon

    SOUTHASIAN STUDY CLUB (SASC/InSAF) || The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) Thursday took a big step towards realising its second Moon mission this year with a fifth consecutive success in the use of an indigenous cryogenic engine to fire an improved version of its heavy-lift GSLV Mk II rocket to launch a satellite into space from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre at Sriharikota.

    The GSLV F08, a fully operational version of ISRO’s GSLV Mk II rocket series, launched the GSAT 6A communication satellite into its orbit. “The major phases of the flight occurred as intended. About seventeen and a half minutes after lift-off, GSAT-6A was successfully placed in GTO,” ISRO said in an official post-launch statement.

    “Soon after separation from GSLV, the two solar arrays of GSAT-6A were automatically deployed in quick succession and the Master Control Facility (MCF) at Hassan in Karnataka assumed control of the satellite,” the statement said.

    The launch was the 12th satellite launched on board the GSLV rocket and the fifth consecutive success for a GSLV equipped with an indigenously developed Cryogenic Upper Stage engine.

    The liquid stage 2 Vikas engines on the GSLV F08 were significantly souped up for power when compared to the standard Vikas engines used on previous flights. Thursday’s GSLV-F08 flight was also the first GSLV flight under the stewardship of new ISRO Chairman K Sivan.

    The GSLV — specifically the GSLV F10 — is the designated rocket to fly India’s second mission to the Moon, the Chandrayaan 2, weighing around 3,290 kg, at the end of the year.

    The GSAT-6A built by ISRO is intended to provide mobile communication services through multibeam coverage. The satellite is equipped with S- and C-band transponders. The GSAT 6A was originally intended to be launched for the private firm Devas Multimedia to provide communication services in India, but the deal was scrapped by the UPA government in 2011 after it came under scrutiny for irregularities. Under the deal, ISRO was to build and launch the GSAT 6 and 6A at a cost of Rs 766 crore. The GSAT 6, weighing 2,117 kg and very similar to the GSAT 6A, was ultimately launched on the GSLV D6 in August 2015.

    The indigenous cryogenic stage on the GSLV is the third stage, and uses liquid hydrogen as fuel and liquid oxygen as oxidiser. Cryogenic stage is a highly efficient rocket stage that provides more thrust for every kg of propellant it burns compared to solid and earth-storable liquid propellant stages. The impulse achievable with cryo fluids is 450 seconds compared with 300 seconds for other fuels.

    According to space scientists, cryogenic engines provide unprecedented thrust to GSLV rockets in their final stages while keeping fuel loads relatively low. Nearly 50% of the power for GSLV rockets as they push into space comes from the cryogenic stage. India had first ventured on the path of obtaining cryogenic technology in 1992 with a two-pronged strategy of purchasing cryogenic engines from Russia, and acquiring the technology from the US. But following the 1998 nuclear tests and the sanctions that followed, the US denied India cryogenic technology.

    ISRO used seven cryogenic engines sold by Russia for the early phase of its GSLV programme that began in 2001, while parallely developing an indigenous technology. GSLV launches with Russian engines, including early operational flights, had mixed results, with only two flights going perfectly to plan. The first GSLV flight with an indigenous cryogenic upper stage failed on April 15, 2010.

    In the absence of heavy-lift rocket technology, India has been relying on France for launching its communication satellites. India is among six nations — along with the US, Russia, France, Japan and China — to possess cryogenic engine technology, a key frontier in rocket science.

    While ISRO has brought the GSLV Mk II to an operational phase, it is still in the process of developing a fully operational GSLV Mk III rocket, which can carry satellites weighing more than four tonnes to space. The GSLV Mk III D1 flight delivered a 3,136 kg GSAT-19 satellite — the heaviest launched from Indian soil — to a geosynchronous transfer orbit in June 2017.

    The cryogenic upper stage in the GSLV Mk III rocket, called the C25 engine, is an improvement on C20 cryogenic engines used in the GSLV Mk II rockets which entered the operational phase after over 25 years of development, in September 2016, following the successful flight of the GSLV F05 with a 2,211 kg INSAT-3DR weather satellite. A GSLV Mk III D2 rocket is scheduled to fly a GSAT 29 communication satellite to space in its second mission which is scheduled for the first half of 2018 by ISRO. (source)
  • Bangladesh Pharma Companies to Explore Qatar's Market

    As part of expanding its global footprint, Bangladesh’s fast-growing pharmaceutical sector is looking for opportunities in Qatar. A “Meet the Bangladesh“event held at Doha Bank headquarters, discussed potential Bangladesh-Qatar partnership possibilities in the pharma sector.

    Bangladesh pharmaceutical industry has been making tremendous progress over the past few years. Bangladeshi drugs and medicine is now being exported to more than 140 countries around the world and leading players are making forays into the most regulated markets of Europe, USA, Canada and Australia, Ashud Ahmed, Bangladesh’s ambassador to Qatar, told The Peninsula.

    Recently, WTO/TRIPS has extended the pharma patent waiver period till January 2033 for Bangladesh and other LDC countries which will help further strengthen their pharma capabilities.

    “As the sector attracts large investments, more companies are now getting certified by the global regulatory authorities. with government initiatives and policy support, Bangladesh has huge potential to emerge as a global generic drug hub. Besides, the pharma sector of Bangladesh is preparing for large scale production of bulk drugs as country’s Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) Park is now almost ready, and this will make this sector more competitive”, said Nazmul Hassan, Bangladesh Association of Pharmaceutical Industires (BAPI).

    The event was well-attended by leading corporates who were keen to hear more about Bangladesh- Qatar bilateral relationships and to explore further business opportunities with Doha Bank.

    Addressing the event, the Bangladesh’s ambassador gave insight on Qatar Bangladesh bilateral relationships, the role of Bangladeshi people in Qatar economy in sectors such as teaching, Banking and infrastructure. He also highlighted that there are more areas where Qatar and Bangladesh can explore such as trade, tourism and pharmaceutical industry.

    Dr R Seetharaman, CEO, Doha Bank said: “Bangladesh Budget for 2017-18 had kept a growth target of 7.4 percent with a fiscal deficit which is 5 percent of the GDP.The Bangladesh monetary policy for July-December sets a domestic credit growth ceiling at 15.8 percent, a level consistent with growth and inflation objectives.”

    On Qatar – Bangladesh bilateral relationships, the Doha Bank CEO said: “Qatar trade is close to $173m in 2015-16. In September 2017 RasGas Company has entered into a 15-year sales and purchase agreement (SPA) with Bangladesh Oil, Gas and Mineral Corporation. It will supply 2.5 million tonnes of liquefied natural gas (LNG) per annum to Bangladesh as part of the country’s efforts to diversify its export markets.There is immense potential of skilled and professionally qualified workforce in Bangladesh that can help Qatar in meeting its National Vision 2030 and in hosting the FIFA World Cup in 2022.There are opportunities in global generic drugs and Bangladesh is an emerging generic hub in Asia. The Qatar- Bangladesh bilateral relationships have immense potential.”

    Dr Yousef Al Maslamani, Medical Director, Hamad General Hospital highlighted the importance of symbiosis between people, corporations and countries in building working relationships.

    S M Shafiuzzaaman, Secretary General of Bangladesh Association of Pharmaceutical Industries highlighted on the opportunities in generic drugs. The pharmaceutical size had exceeded $2bn. There are modern factories in Bangladesh and exports are faster to leading countries in the World. The quality standards of Bangladesh products can meet requirements anywhere in the world and products are at competitive prices.

    Addressing the event, Mohammed bin Ahmed bin Towar Al Kuwari, Vice chairman of Qatar Chamber (QC) stated that the Qatar Chamber of Commerce will look for opportunities to explore trade and economic relationships between Qatar- Bangladesh with focus on Bangladesh pharmaceutical sector.

    A keynote presentation on “Economic Growth and Attractive Opportunities in Bangladesh” was presented by Mohammad Shafiqul Islam, a telecom marketing professional working in Qatar. (source)
