Third Dimension’s GapGun Edge Break Plus technology is used by several leading aerospace engine manufacturers on their assemblies. The handheld system uses a laser and camera to create a triangulated coordinate system. It saves manufacturers time by using optical sensor technology and custom-engineered software to inspect the edges of turbine components to high levels of precision, providing a fully auditable trail throughout the manufacturing process as proof of quality. The sensor technology incorporates an ultrahigh-precision head. By focusing on small areas in great detail, real-world shop floor measurements with a repeatability of less than 10 µm are achievable, a level previously unseen in handheld optical systems.

Researchers from Purdue University are studying the fundamental mechanisms behind a method that uses electrical fields to enhance ceramics-sintering processing, which could aid R&D of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells. The research also could shed light on a phenomenon called electromigration, which can affect the performance of electronic devices.

France's Dassault Aviation and India's Reliance Group announced in late September 2016 the creation of a joint venture (JV) in India called Dassault Reliance Aerospace. With this announcement came news that the Dassault Reliance Aerospace JV will be a key player in the execution of offset obligations as a part of the 36 Rafale fighter jet purchase agreement that was signed between France and India on September 23, 2016 and is valued at around €7.87 billion, or about Rs. 59,000 crore.

One of the biggest issues in bringing forward new designs is the length of time that it takes to agree to a new specification, research and evaluate the alternative features and configurations, and then embark on a development program that will take the design to flight testing and ultimately operational service.
