Quoting Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum | Curtiss P-40E Warhawk (Kittyhawk IA):

Whether known as the Warhawk, Tomahawk, or Kittyhawk, the Curtiss P-40 proved to be a successful, versatile fighter during the first half of World War II. The shark-mouthed Tomahawks that Gen. Claire Chennault’s "Flying Tigers" flew in China against the Japanese remain among the most popular airplanes of the war. P-40E pilot Lt. Boyd D. Wagner became the first American ace of World War II when he shot down six Japanese aircraft in the Philippines in mid-December 1941.

Curtiss-Wright built this airplane as Model 87-A3 and delivered it to Canada as a Kittyhawk I in 1941. It served until 1946 in No. 111 Squadron, Royal Canadian Air Force. U.S. Air Force personnel at Andrews Air Force Base restored it in 1975 to represent an aircraft of the 75th Fighter Squadron, 23rd Fighter Group, 14th Air Force.

Quoting Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum | Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird:

No reconnaissance aircraft in history has operated globally in more hostile airspace or with such complete impunity than the SR-71, the world’s fastest jet-propelled aircraft. The Blackbird’s performance and operational achievements placed it at the pinnacle of aviation technology developments during the Cold War.

This Blackbird accrued about 2,800 hours of flight time during 24 years of active service with the U.S. Air Force. On its last flight, March 6, 1990, Lt. Col. Ed Yielding and Lt. Col. Joseph Vida set a speed record by flying from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C., in 1 hour, 4 minutes, and 20 seconds, averaging 3,418 kilometers (2,124 miles) per hour. At the flight’s conclusion, they landed at Washington-Dulles International Airport and turned the airplane over to the Smithsonian.

Quoting Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum | Vought F4U-1D Corsair :

By V-J Day, September 2, 1945, Corsair pilots had amassed an 11:1 kill ratio against enemy aircraft. The aircraft’s distinctive inverted gull-wing design allowed ground clearance for the huge, three-bladed Hamilton Standard Hydromatic propeller, which spanned more than 4 meters (13 feet). The Pratt and Whitney R-2800 radial engine and Hydromatic propeller was the largest and one of the most powerful engine-propeller combinations ever flown on a fighter aircraft.

Charles Lindbergh flew bombing missions in a Corsair with Marine Air Group 31 against Japanese strongholds in the Pacific in 1944. This airplane is painted in the colors and markings of the Corsair Sun Setter, a Marine close-support fighter assigned to the USS Essex in July 1944.

Transferred from the United States Navy.

Details, quoting from Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum | Space Shuttle Enterprise:

Manufacturer:
Rockwell International Corporation

Country of Origin:
United States of America

Dimensions:
Overall: 57 ft. tall x 122 ft. long x 78 ft. wing span, 150,000 lb.
(1737.36 x 3718.57 x 2377.44cm, 68039.6kg)

Materials:
Aluminum airframe and body with some fiberglass features; payload bay doors are graphite epoxy composite; thermal tiles are simulated (polyurethane foam) except for test samples of actual tiles and thermal blankets.

The first Space Shuttle orbiter, "Enterprise," is a full-scale test vehicle used for flights in the atmosphere and tests on the ground; it is not equipped for spaceflight. Although the airframe and flight control elements are like those of the Shuttles flown in space, this vehicle has no propulsion system and only simulated thermal tiles because these features were not needed for atmospheric and ground tests. "Enterprise" was rolled out at Rockwell International’s assembly facility in Palmdale, California, in 1976. In 1977, it entered service for a nine-month-long approach-and-landing test flight program. Thereafter it was used for vibration tests and fit checks at NASA centers, and it also appeared in the 1983 Paris Air Show and the 1984 World’s Fair in New Orleans. In 1985, NASA transferred "Enterprise" to the Smithsonian Institution’s National Air and Space Museum.

Automatic NERF EBF-25 Turret
Computer Batteries

Image by Randomskk
I rigged a NERF Vulcan/Havok Fire EBF-25 up so that its firing could be controlled by computer, then used the motion detecting software ‘motion’ for linux to have the gun fire when it detects the door opening.

The gun itself has three chained ammo belts, for a total of 74 shots, and a 12.6V lipo battery instead of the 9V D-cell battery pack it would use stock. The firing mechanism is an Arduino driving a servo connected to some pencils to pull the trigger, and there’s a Logitech C300 webcam on the gun to source video. The laptop itself also plays sound files from Portal turrets when motion is detected or stops being detected. Check out www.youtube.com/watch?v=wrWUhVeEcHk for video!

Enterprise security gateway

Along with the development of Internet and the enterprise information from Internet, viruses, HP Pavilion DV7-1134 Battery Trojan and hacker attacks has become the biggest threat to enterprise network development, so many companies are deployed security gateway equipment, in order to protect the enterprise information and data. So here is to ZhangHongMing engineers for McAfee security gateway of opinion.

1 .what is the main problem the future security gateway facing?

ZhangHongMing: with the development of the Internet, HP Pavilion DV7-1134 Laptop Battery Web and E-mail has become daily office, information and electronic business activities, these approaches the main ways of the carrier is the best security threats.

E-mail and Web of threat (such as spam, spyware, phishing scams, viruses, trojans, and other threats) destroys network security, reduce the employee’s work efficiency, affect profitability.

In the traditional solutions, the enterprise users to cope with each new threats, deployment of new safety equipment. With the increase of the equipment, equipment management, IT become a big problem of the complexity of the solution, increase gradually, at the same time, energy, equipment cooling, and even more urgent demands space occupied, enterprise users have to face more and more equipment, more and more suppliers, more and more control platform and high cost!

2 security gateway application value and deploy aims?

ZhangHongMing: in large enterprise users, Replacement HP Pavilion DV7-1134 Laptop Battery ,some enterprise adopts the traditional solutions, need many devices provide safety protection, enterprises in the gateway of investment, maintenance and management costs are high, but also some enterprise for market safety equipment cannot satisfy their safety and performance requirements, so the gateway security solutions.

Actually security gateway for enterprise to bring the great value of the Blade Server by McAfee, security gateway, for example, it can not only help large enterprise users to reduce the complexity of the network management, but also can improve the efficiency of management, enhances the enterprise the overall safety protection ability.

For customers,  operation level of Blade Server security gateway McAfee equipment can help operators can establish the “safety management services” (MSSP), such as operators can create spam protection center for its customers, a spam filter function, can also access for operators of enterprise users virus protection and Web URL filter function, improve its competitive advantage, and increase the security service revenue management.

In addition, the Blade Server security gateway McAfee equipment can deploy in operators GPRS, CDMA – 3G wireless Internet 1X or Internet connection, etc, to prevent the exit of Internet threats of wireless Internet users invasion terminal equipment, through the interception of spam, viruses, trojans, etc, which can ensure security threat to the safety of terminal equipment, and can save valuable resources for the operators.

3 .what defense security gateway products can realize?

ZhangHongMing: security gateway products can be deployed in data link directly by powerful detection and prevention function effectively resist and various virus, virus, spam emails, and the harm of the network information data content filtering, and can realize the URL filter function, it can use transparent Bridges and agent model deployment.

As the change of demand, the user can at any time according to need enable the corresponding function: first, can enable is an E-mail security, anti-spam and malicious software removal and E-mail content filtering four functions, then will also increase security browsing and URL filter two functions. Ready, users can be deployed to all the applications in a blade system, or will they distributed to multiple blade system.
