Russell Square

Russell Square is a large garden square in Bloomsbury, in the London Borough of Camden, built predominantly by James Burton. It is near the British Museum. To the north is Woburn Place, to the south-east is Southampton Row. Russell Square tube station is nearby to the north-east, it is named after the surname of the Dukes of Bedford. The gardens are Grade II-listed on the Register of Historic Parks and Gardens. In 2005, two terrorist bombings occurred near the square. One of the bombings was on a London Underground train between King's Cross St Pancras tube station and Russell Square tube station, another was on a bus on Tavistock Square, near Russell Square. To commemorate the victims, flowers were laid at the square. In 2016 the Russell Square stabbing took place. Following the demolition of Bedford House, Russell Square and Bedford Square were laid out in 1804; the square is named after the surname of the Earls and Dukes of Bedford, who developed the family's London landholdings in the 17th and 18th centuries.

Between 1805 and 1830, Thomas Lawrence had a studio at number 65. Other past residents include the famous 19th-century architectural father-and-son partnership and Philip Charles Hardwick, who lived at number 60 in the 1850s. On the eastern side the Hotel Russell, built in 1898 to a design by Charles Fitzroy Doll, alongside the Imperial Hotel, built in 1966; the square contained large terraced houses aimed at upper-middle-class families. A number of the original houses survive on the southern and western sides; those to the west are occupied by the University of London, there is a blue plaque on one at the north-west corner commemorating the fact that T. S. Eliot worked there from the late 1920s when he was poetry editor of Faber & Faber; that building is now used by the School of African Studies. In 1998, the London Mathematical Society moved from rooms in Burlington House to De Morgan House, at 57–58 Russell Square, in order to accommodate staff expansion; the Cabmen's Shelter Fund was established in London in 1875 to run shelters for the drivers of hansom cabs and hackney carriages.

In 2002, the square was re-landscaped in a style based on the original early 19th century layout by Humphry Repton. Since 2004, the two buildings on the southern side, at numbers 46 and 47, have been occupied by the Huron University USA in London. On 7 July 2005, two terrorist bombings occurred near the square. One of them was on a London Underground train at that moment running between King's Cross St Pancras tube station and Russell Square tube station, another was on a bus on Tavistock Square, near Russell Square. To commemorate the victims, many flowers were laid at a spot on Russell Square just south of the café; the location is now marked by a young oak tree. The square was the site of a mass stabbing in 2016; the London Branch of École Jeannine Manuel has occupied 52-53 Russell Square since 2019. Russell Square appears in various novels. In the early chapters of Thackeray's Vanity Fair, set in about 1812, Russell Square is evoked as the residence of "John Sedley, Esquire, of Russell Square, the Stock Exchange."

SABCA

SABCA is a worldwide leading tier 1 multi-technology aerospace supplier, subsidiary of the Dassault Group. Serving the world's leading aircraft and space launchers manufacturers, SABCA designs, develops and maintains aircraft and launcher components and systems; the company asserts its expertise in 4 business units – Integrated Assemblies, Actuation Systems, MRO and Unmanned Systems, achieved a turnover of 186 million euros in 2018. SABCA offers a full range of services to the civil and military aviation markets and its activities extended to the Unmanned Autonomous Systems commercial market include the integration of aerospace grade solutions for industry; the company, listed on the Euronext stock market, conducts operations in the three Belgian regions and has one facility in Morocco. SABCA was founded on 16 December 1920 by Georges Nélis with the task of designing and building aircraft for the emerging air transport in Belgium; the project led by Nélis was supporter by King Albert. When it was founded, the Belgian government guaranteed an annual order brook with a value of BEF 6 million.

So SABCA became the exclusive supplier of the Belgian Air Force and SNETA. Part of these, SABCA's first activities on behalf of the Belgian Air Force were the maintenance and repair of aircraft requisitioned by the Germans during the First World War; the aeronautical company began the construction of several planes under licence: the Morane-Saulnier MS.35, Fokker F-VII, de Havilland DH-9's, Ansaldo A.300/40's, Nieuport 29C.1's and Avro 504K. In addition to licenced production, SABCA developed its own construction such as ships bound for the Belgian Congo. However, this activity remained marginal compared to licenced construction. During World Word II, SABCA's Brussels plant at Haren Airport was requisitioned by the German occupier. At the liberation, the SABCA factories are put on fire. After the war, SABCA became a major partner in most Belgian military aircraft production and upgrade programs like the Hunter, F-84, F-104G, Dassault Mirage 5, Lockheed F-16, Agusta 109 Helicopter, etc... A new plant was opened in 1955 on the Charleroi airport for that purpose.

In a move towards diversification in the field of high technologies, SABCA was among the early participants in the European space programs in the 1970s and has since more than 40 years designed and manufactured major elements of the European Spacelab and large parts of the Ariane and Vega launchers. The civil aircraft activity took a boost in 1989 when a first risk-sharing contract was signed with Airbus. Since that day, SABCA has been selected as a partner for all new Airbus programs, including the giant A380, the A400M and the new A350 XWB. SABCA designs and produces metallic and composite subassemblies for the Dassault and Gulfstream business jets programs. SABCA moved a step forward with the creation of a owned subsidiary, SABCA Limburg nv, specialized in the production of high-tech composites. Today, the plant produces high quality components for Airbus A350, A400M and Gulfstream 650. Opening a new site in Casablanca completes the SABCA eco-system; the SABCA Group created a network of centers of excellence in order to bring it customers end-to-end solutions at best cost.

Our new site was named SABCA Maroc and is looking for expansion to cover the increasing demand. After 100 years of excellence in aerospace, SABCA is still an important player in the Aerospace industry. Building on its expertise, SABCA is now taking major steps to become a leader in the development systems for unmanned autonomous missions; the drone department performs safety critical missions for the general industry, like medical transport over densely populated areas and inspection of offshore infrastructure. As a member of the SAFIR consortium alongside 12 other Belgian public and private companies, SABCA has been contributing to the EU's regulatory process for UAVs since 2018. In 2019, the aeronautical equipment manufacturer signed a collaboration agreement with Deme Offshore, a subsidiary of the dredging and marine engineering group specialising in offshore wind power, to develop and deploy monitoring and inspection services for offshore wind turbines using drones. In October that same year, SABCA operated its first 100% autonomous medical flight with its X8 UAV as part of the Helicus Aero Initiative consortium.

SABCA assorts its expertise in 4 Business Units: Integrated assemblies: SABCA masters the art of designing and manufacturing robust and large structures in aluminum and composite. Through its long history SABCA has perfected its capability to deliver what is called plug & fly structures; these “integrated assemblies” are built in Brussels, Lummen or Casablanca based on multi-technology solutions and delivered to our customers. Actuation Systems: SABCA designs, tests and repairs hydraulic and electromechanical actuators for use on business jets and commercial airplanes, as well as actuation systems that control the flightpath of launchers like Ariane 6 and Vega. Actuation systems are the joints and muscles that move the control surfaces like rudder, elevators and ailerons but can be found on every moving part on the aircraft inside and outside the fuselage. Maintenance, Overhaul & Upgrades: With more than 50 years of expertise, SABCA proposes a wide range of sustainment solutions to Air Force worldwide.

It includes maintenance, repair and upgrade of their aircraft and component, engineering services, spare parts management, AOG team support, obsolescence management... Sabc
