-- -- CN all right moving on now to some.
Defense talks can -- wanna talk about war games and that means it's time for -- -- to be here.
Always a pleasure to have -- says she joins me reliant defense specialist of war games of the columnists and fire foxnews.com.
And you're here today happy new year happy new year and you talk about cold particles break for army helicopters that sounds super cool community and supersonic now what is -- it is it is super cool in the army is get in -- military they -- they can possibly -- green stuff but.
It's actually green college -- -- RD getting a lot of questions about -- good morning -- just -- living green technologies.
It's not kind of -- creates sort of Christmas -- -- -- and cold spring it combats corrosion is this something they sprayed down everything good that -- what do they -- well the idea is that and this kind of discussed a -- I really love this idea it's a very simple and complex but simple quick -- -- -- really massive problem because -- with ten years of ongoing impeachment.
Arab aircraft to seek a really heavy eating and the magnate museum alloy components -- really expensive.
Oh -- we're going to get too technical here -- -- gear boxes very heavy very expensive.
And it's a shame because the corrosion means we've got -- shipped them out of theater and get something back in there and it's very expensive -- -- the cost environment is of course.
-- just -- -- parts back and forth.
But also you know -- to create new parts that whole thing so the idea is that this cold spray it's kind of flake.
You know there's this crazy -- athletes spraying on him you know they've got a problem it's kind of that -- -- Huntsman simplistic sense of revenue having to ship in a whole new part.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- all the -- looks really promising their looking to roll it up for Blackhawks and that's families that include Seahawks and other.
Equipment people would be familiar with that it is amazing something small you think of corrosion not a big deal but -- hundred in the.
Yeah -- excellent there.
In the app isn't actually would say -- I denies what a big problem Islam minister rethinking some land -- -- in public -- spectacular -- -- and I -- it.
I don't I don't a look at -- -- guys they've got a plane hit an inside that yet it's at anything over ten years -- engagements as of billion dollars that's some -- You know I love to hear these positive stories about -- stuff and hostages for operational readiness in our our helicopters to to to eating and you name it.
Brown ads in her landings and all that if there's a way that we can make sure that there's always.
Top equipment that's reliable for our soldiers I'm happy -- it.
You mentioned some of the testing that's been done yes talk to us about some of the results I mean this sounds like.
You know obviously the spray at the check to see if that works but.
Can use more detail about how they do you know how much testing were done yet it's sad day in and they've got a facility in North Carolina dedicated to unit and you know looking for things you know what's sort of expecting it wasn't just the army that sent the objective -- it was you know the -- he's been about -- got aircraft to be sentenced by surprise that but.
I know armies that aircraft needs better -- act as a navy have more corrosion.
That's a great question and one that I asked them and they -- wet wet weather conditions with the salt air rest is one of the things that is one of the specific things that they particular incident and sometimes you're gonna have army aircraft in those kind of conditions tees so.
Really wanna make sure it works for all trains like you just suggested.
So looking for -- they're looking for you is going to actually crude unit is improving.
And that sort of stuff in the way it works is kind of like a -- -- sort of like if you're spraying your line here but it's just a supersonic super powerful and -- like 3000 meters -- back now at a book.
And it it uses -- it makes nitrogen or helium gas and it carries this -- spray particles.
Which are tiny tainted at fifty microns which I can -- pretend to visualize how tiny that it's that.
You know it's so powerful that it can get -- thirty pounds and our of these little tiny.
My -- It had -- sprays out the -- gun like you would user who's and to the areas that need to repair right of -- is get snow especially you know when you're watching.
Any kind of file footage or when we're doing stories on the military which of course we do a lot of here fox.
That is so if you see it in the future you can think about -- barrier -- and about you know what this is because you know otherwise I'd like the idea icing the win.
What are they -- -- -- so that we're we're showing the article right now this is up online right now cracked yes it is at a coal greens Supersonics spray saved the black cop pulling up to find out more by reading more in depth.
Alison Barry's column thank you so much for being with us everything.
Other interesting stuff I was all of the stuff that you bring to think's really cool I was -- your advice and anything obvious and I said thank you very much.
Look forward to having you on next time thinking.
