Description

Airborne Early Warning ( AEW ), is now part of the day - to - day jargon of military aviation, but few people realize how enormously significant AEW aircraft really are in the arena of modern warfare. In this book AEW types are revealed as amongst the most potent of all warplanes.
Though hugely expensive ( the two aircraft on the front cover cost upwards of £ 50 million apiece ), AEW aircraft are not luxuries : they are a vital ingredient in the force - mix of any modern air force or navy, and their absence can leave areas of weakness. The location of an enemy, his strength, direction and weapon, - state - gleaned at long - range using an aircraft platform - is an invaluable form of intelligence gathering.
Here, past and present AEW aircraft are dissected, and the book is profusely illustrated with many declassified photos and diagrams. Hawkeye, Sentry, Nimrod, and Soviet AEW aircraft are all included.

Mike Hirst is a leading figure in the defence electronics field. His career began at the Ministry of Aviation in 1965, and since then he has been involded with avionics and associated systems design with Smiths Industries and British Aerospace.
He left BAe in 1981 to devote his energy to full - time freelance writing, but from 1983 he has combined his writing talents with lecturing at the Cranfield College of Aeronautics.
Mike Hirst is a Senior Associate with Airport Planning and Development Ltd, Leeds, UK. He is a chartered engineer and aviation systems specialist with some 40 years’ experience in civil aviation, including flight testing, air traffic control and systems, airport design, and operations training, education and research. He also wrote a book entitled The air transport system.

À PROPOS DE CET EDITEUR
Osprey Publishing Limited
In the 1960's, the Brooke Bond Tea Company began including a series of military aircraft cards with packages of their tea. The cards proved popular, and the artist Richard " Dick " Ward proposed the idea of publishing illustrated books about military aircraft. The idea was approved and a small subsidiary company called Osprey was formed in 1968. The company’s first book, North American P - 51D Mustang in U.S.A.A.F. - U.S.A.F. Service, was published in 1969. Soon after, Richard " Dick " Ward proposed trying the same idea with famous military units, and in 1971, the first Men - at - Arms title appeared. In the late 1970's, the firm was acquired by George Philip Ltd. In 1988, Philip was acquired by Reed International ; it was sold to the private equity firm Botts & Company. During these years, the firm grew steadily, adding new titles and new series to their catalogue. Although they have produced books of all types, the main focus remains on military history, particularly the military history of Britain. Osprey Publishing now publishes an average of 10 - 12 books a month. In 2014, Osprey and its imprints were sold by Alcuin Capital Partners. Angry Robot, Nourish and Watkins went to Etan Ilfeld while Osprey, Shire, Old House and British Wildlife went to Bloomsbury Publishing. ( source : Wikipedia )
