Dassault Aviation Mirage 2000 - Scramble (2353 words)
The Mirage 2000 was selected as the main French Air Force combat aircraft 18 December 1975.
The Mirage 2000 was initially developed as an interceptor with the SNECMA M53 power plant and Thomson-CSF (now Thales) RDM multimode pulse Doppler radar.
Subsequently the Mirage 2000 was developed for strike/attack roles as Mirage 2000N/D. The second-generation Mirage 2000-5 was first flown as a prototype 24 October 1990, with the initial production aircraft flown in October 1995 and type qualification granted (for SF1 French production standard) by the DGA procurement agency on 13 June 1997.
IngentaConnect Aviation radiative forcing in 2000: An update on IPCC (1999) (194 words)
New estimates of the various contributions to the radiative forcing (RF) from aviation are presented, mainly based on results from the TRADEOFF project that update those of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC, 1999).
The new estimate of the total RF from aviation for 2000 is approximately the same as that of the IPCC's estimate for 1992.
This is mainly a consequence of the strongly reduced RF from contrails, which compensates the increase due to increased traffic from 1992 to 2000.
