QinetiQ's and BAE Systems' ATD fitted with a fast jet radome. (QinetiQ)
QinetiQ's and BAE Systems' airborne technology demonstrator (ATD) has successfully completed its inaugural test flight with a combat aircraft nose system, QinetiQ announced on 8 August.
The ATD is a new airborne test facility that uses a British Aerospace Avro RJ100 airframe to de-risk the development of future sensors and technologies.
To demonstrate its potential utility, the two companies equipped a fast jet radome on the platform to enable the aircraft to accommodate next-generation radar and sensor systems.
The flight paves the way for the ATD to become a core test, trials, training, and evaluation (T3E) capability under a Long Term Partnering Agreement (LTPA) with the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD).
As part of the agreement, QinetiQ is responsible for the operation of 15 MoD land, sea, and air ranges and specialist test facilities as well as the provision of specialist technical expertise and support services.
The radome is the latest in a series of modifications to the RJ100 platform, which has been transformed into a flying laboratory and classroom. The aircraft integrates multiple flexible workstations that enable research and development projects to be quickly and easily integrated, QinetiQ said.

Chartered Retirement Plans Specialist (CRPS) is a credential for those who create, implement and maintain retirement plans for businesses. Unlike most other professional financial planning and advisory professional designations, the CRPS focuses on wholesale and business clients. It is awarded by the College for Financial Planning to individuals who pass an test demonstrating their expertise.
Successful applicants earn the right to use the CRPS designation with their names for two years, which can Boost job opportunities, professional reputation, and pay. Every two years, CRPS professionals must complete 16 hours of continuing education and pay a nominal fee to continue using the designation.
Keeping up with changes to tax codes and other laws is important for a chartered retirement plans specialist. For example, the passage of the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (SECURE) Act in December 2019 brought forth some hefty changes to the retirement industry. As of 2020, under the new law, the age for taking required minimum distributions (RMDs) is no longer 70.5, but age 72. Then, a few years later, Congress passed the SECURE 2.0 Act which increased the RMD age to 73. Being mindful of these changes as they occur are central to the role of chartered retirement plans specialist.
The Chartered Retirement Plans Specialist program is a case-study-based, client-centered problem-solving approach. The study program to become a CRPS covers types and characteristics of retirement plans, including IRAs, small business retirement plans, defined contribution plans, nonprofit plans, 401(k) and 403(b) plans, and government plans.
It also covers plan distributions, plan design and implementation, plan establishment and operation, and fiduciary issues. The designation is an acknowledgment of the complexity of setting up and running a company-sponsored retirement plan.
Individuals who have earned the CRP designation report a 20% increase in earnings, according to the College for Financial Planning. With it, graduates can test out of one of the seven courses in the college's CFP Certified Professional Education Program. Completing the course can also provide up to 28 hours of continuing education credits.
The program costs $1,350 in addition to choosing between live and on-demand classes. For more information on the certification or to enroll, visit the College for Financial Planning CRPS informational page.
The CRPS course enables candidates to master a wide variety of retirement plan types, such as SEP, SIMPLE, 401(k), defined benefit plans, and more. Specific course sections include:
The CRPS program features open enrollment, meaning a candidate may enroll at any time as long as they pass the final test within one year of enrolling. The first final test attempt is included in the program's $1,350 price tag.
CRPS candidates may take the test online via the College for Financial Planning's online portal or live (though dates are limited).
Similar to the CRPS designation is the Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor (CRPC), a professional financial planning designation awarded by the College for Financial Planning. Unlike the CRPS, which focuses on businesses, the CRPC focuses on individual clients.
CRPC professionals have to keep up with current trends and any new laws to better serve their clients, so every two years, they must pay a small fee and complete 16 hours of continuing education in order to keep their designation.
Advisors may earn the CRPC designation by completing a study program and passing a final multiple-choice examination. Successful applicants earn the right to use the CRPC designation with their names for two years, which can Boost job opportunities, professional reputation, and pay. Every two years, CRPC professionals must complete 16 hours of continuing education and pay a small fee to continue using the designation.
CRPCs are focused on retirement planning. The CRPC program is developed with a focus on client-centered problem-solving. Applicants gain in-depth knowledge of individuals' needs both before and after retirement.
A CFP certification will generally have a better grasp on a broader range of financial matters. On the other hand, a CRPS will have more specialized knowledge, especially around retirement planning. Individuals may obtain their CRPS earlier in their career as it may be more suitable based on their limited experience. However, a CFP is often better in the long-run for professionals wanting to be more engaged in a variety of financial planning activities.
Test takers must achieve a score of 70% or higher to pass the CRPC exam.
Obtaining a CRPC demonstrates your proven acumen across a variety of retirement planning aspects such as Social Security, Federal taxes, retirement account vehicles, and estate planning. As you embark in your career and strive to land additional clients, having a CRPC provides more legitimacy to your knowledge and installs trust in your clients that you have a proven knowledge of what you consult them on. In addition, holders of a CRPC report having earned higher wages than non-CRPCs.
A Chartered Retirement Plans Specialist (CRPS) is a program designed to demonstrate an individual's savviness in knowing various aspect of retirement planning. The program entails completing courses and demonstrating knowledge via an exam. The CRPS focuses more on businesses, while other programs such as the CRPC focuses more heavily on individuals.
The rest of the Indian contingent has moved to Durham © Getty
Rishabh Pant and throwdown specialist Dayananda Garani - two members of the Indian contingent in England - are confirmed to have tested positive for COVID-19.
As reported earlier by Cricbuzz*, the duo have been isolated. And three more members - Wriddhiman Saha, Abhimanyu Easwaran and Bharat Arun - have also been isolated after being deemed to be close contacts with Garani
The BCCI, in a statement, confirmed that Pant had tested positive on 8th July and has been isolation since, while Garani tested positive on 14th July. The team had been on a three-week break after the World Test Championship final.
"Pant, who had not stayed in the team hotel during the break period, tested positive on 8th July. He is asymptomatic and currently undergoing self-isolation at the place where he reported positive. He is being closely monitored by the BCCI Medical Team and is on his way to recovery. He will be able to join the squad in Durham after returning two negative RT-PCR tests," said the statement from BCCI.
The other four will have to be in a 10-day isolation and are set to stay back in the hotel room in London. "The entire Indian contingent including travelling family members and caretakers were administered with the second dose of covid vaccine earlier this month in London. To mitigate any further risks, the Indian contingent is taking the Lateral Flow Test on a daily basis," said the BCCI further in its statement.
The rest of the Indian contingent has left for Durham and are scheduled to assemble there on Thursday afternoon and prepare for a three-day warm-up game against a Select County XI team from July 20.
COVID-19 cases have been on the rise in the UK of late. The England men's national team had to undergo quarantine after seven members of the squad tested positive recently. Besides, there was detection of cases in a couple of other counties. Keeping in mind the seriousness of the situation, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Jay Shah recently wrote to the team to exercise caution and avoid going to crowded places.
