Published: 29 Jul 21
African states are among those targeted as possible export markets for Russia’s latest fighter design, currently known only as the Checkmate. This was officially unveiled at the MAKS 2021 aerospace and defence show at Zhukovsky, in the Moscow region, on July 21. Africa was identified as a target market by Sergey Chemezov, who is CEO of the Russian State-owned defence and high-tech industries group Rostec. The group owns the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC), which in turn owns Sukhoi, which is the company which has developed the Checkmate. The other area targeted for possible exports of the new type is the Middle East. Chemezov also said that the new fighter would cost between $25-million and $30-million, depending on the configuration chosen by the customer.

Union members from other industries joined the picket line, while truck drivers and garbage men who drove by honked in solidarity. BlackRock was listed as Warrior Met’s biggest shareholder as recently as March 31.
Suncor cuts Fort Hills oil output guidance amid mine instability Suncor cuts Fort Hills oil output guidance amid mine instability

Rolls-Royce and US company develop means for ultra cold vaccine transport in remote areas
Published: 29 Jul 21
A US-based innovation unit of UK-based global major industrial technology group Rolls-Royce has designed an ultra-low temperature cold transport pod for vaccines, a design that was then developed jointly with specialist US company ChefsFridge. The innovation team that designed the pod, which is named ArcticRx, is based in the Indianapolis area of the US state of Indiana, as is ChefsFridge. The ArticRx pod is intended specifically to transport vaccines that need to be kept at very low temperatures and administered in two doses. What makes it different is that it can maintain ultra-low temperatures for the long-term and in an entirely passive manner. It thus fills a gap in the vaccine transport chain, being intended for use in remote, rural and developing regions where electricity is unavailable. The ArcticRx is also lightweight and reusable, and can be refilled with more cooling materials.
