The Argentine Air Force chief of staff, Brigadier General Enrique Víctor Amrein, on 29 December signed a contract with local company INVAP’s assistant manager, Marcelo Basigalup, to modernise a radar, update another with new software, and purchase a new system. An AN/TPS-43 radar will be modernised to the MTPS-43 standard, developed by INVAP, and this includes digitising all systems and overhauling the hardware.
Argentine Army Aviation and the Aviation Service of the Gendarmería Nacional (border police) on 19 December reached an agreement through which the latter will deliver two Bell Huey 2 helicopters to the army in exchange for five of the 20 Agusta Bell AB-206 helicopters that the army is receiving, a senior Gendarmería official told Jane’s . The Huey 2s are not currently flying due to a dispute between the Gendarmería and Grupo Modena, the company contracted to modernise the helicopters.
The commander of Argentina’s ARA Almirante Irízar has declared the icebreaker not ready for deployment, meaning a mission to supply Argentine bases in Antarctica may be in jeopardy. The loss of submarine ARA San Juan in November has raised concern about the Argentine Navy vessels’ serviceability, especially those recently repaired like San Juan and Almirante Irízar .
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".
