A top US Air Force (USAF) official warned that further stop-gap spending measures known as continuing resolutions (CRs) could delay delivery of the Northrop Grumman B-21 Raider long-range strike bomber. “If we’re not able to ramp up our schedule for the acquisition programme baseline, then of course it’s going to have an impact on the other end,” Undersecretary Matthew Donovan told an audience on 18 January at an Air Force Association (AFA) breakfast on Capitol Hill.
A pair of nominees for top Pentagon positions called for additional prototyping and experimentation before the department commits to the acquisition of major weapon systems. Michael Griffin, nominee to become undersecretary of defence for research and engineering, told a Senate panel on 18 January that prototyping enables the Pentagon to eliminate problems.
Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) provided several US-unique capabilities to the Embraer EMB-314 Super Tucano strike turboprop that took part in the US Air Force’s (USAF’s) light attack experiment in August, according to a key official. Taco Gilbert, SNC vice president, told reporters on 16 January that these capabilities are unavailable to international customers of the A-29, as the SNC-built Super Tucano is designated.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
