This feature improves assembly and noise attenuation through the elimination of noise channels. The use of composites also allows the module doors and access panels to be made larger, yet lighter for ease of handling. The use of composites eliminates rusting of doors, hinges and access panels, reducing maintenance, the company added.The assembly of a prototype enclosure is now underway and will be tested in a full-scale gas turbine test cell to confirm noise attenuation and thermal performances predicted earlier by component tests and analysis. The composite enclosure will then be subjected to barge shock testing to U.S. Navy requirements. These tests are scheduled to be completed by mid-2018.The gas turbine module developed under the MMP will be available in 2018 with the first application intended on the U.S. Navy’s DDG-51 Flight III ships. The lightweight composite enclosure and updated components will be available for international navies in 2018, the company said.

Cantero to work with Professionalism Commission

first_imgCantero to work with Professionalism Commission October 1, 2002 Regular News After two weeks on the job, Justice Raoul G. Cantero has received his first management assignment from Chief Justice Harry Lee Anstead: serving as the court’s liaison to its Commission on Professionalism. The commission was created in 1996 to promote the highest levels of integrity among lawyers, and Anstead served as its founding chair.Anstead also named Second Judicial Circuit Judge Terry Lewis and Fourth District Court of Appeal Judge Martha Warner as co-chairs of the Florida Court Education Council, which oversees Florida’s pro-gram of continuing education for judges.“It’s a great honor,” said Cantero, “to be named liaison to the Commission by the same judge who is recognized as the father of legal professionalism in Florida. Chief Justice Anstead made Flo-rida’s professionalism program a national model, and I will do everything I can to continue the work he began.”As liaison Cantero will work closely with The Florida Bar’s Center for Professionalism, which was created in 1996 by then-Chief Justice Gerald Kogan based on recommendations of a Bar committee chaired by Anstead. Anstead had worked closely in 1996 with then-Bar President John W. Frost, who dedicated his presidency to the cause of legal professionalism.The professionalism movement grew out of studies by the American Bar Association and The Florida Bar showing that lawyers and the public increasingly have viewed the legal profession less favorably. The movement encourages attorneys to do far more than meet minimum standards of pro-fessional conduct set by rules of court and ethical requirements.Cantero practiced law in Miami from 1988 until his appointment to the Supreme Court by Gov. Jeb Bush on July 10. The Harvard-educated lawyer concentrated in appellate work and was head of the appellate department of the firm of Adorno & Yoss when the governor elevated him to the state’s highest court. Cantero received his undergraduate degree from Florida State University.On the Court Education Council, Judges Lewis and Warner replace retired Justice Major B. Harding, who praised both for their commitment to judicial education.“Judge Warner and Judge Lewis have both exhibited a passion for excellence,” said Harding, “and both have extensive experience serving on the faculty and helping oversee the Judicial College. They are well equipped to continue the ongoing oversight of what many view as the premier state judicial education program in the nation today.”Judge Warner attended Colorado College and the University of Florida law school and has been on the Fourth District Court since 1989, serving as its chief judge from 1999 to 2001. Be-fore her appointment to the appellate bench, she served as a judge of the 19th Judicial Circuit and was in private practice from 1974 to 1985.Judge Lewis received his undergraduate and law degrees from Florida State University. He practiced law from 1976 until he was elected to the Leon County Court in 1988. In 1998, Gov. Lawton Chiles named him to the Second Judicial Circuit Court.center_img Cantero to work with Professionalism Commissionlast_img read more
