Shanghai Aircraft has selected the MAG Charger low-rail gantry composite tape layer to produce main wings, stabilizers, and central wing boxes for COMAC C919 and C929 commercial passenger jets. The tape layer deposits composite tape at industry-leading speeds, while achieving aerospace grade-placement accuracies on complex contours. The machines lay 75-, 150-, or 300-mm carbon/epoxy tape with any orientation and number of plies, over tool surfaces with contours, flats, and changing geometries, producing consistent quality, part shape, thickness, and strength. MAG-designed controls and software make the multi-axis movements easy to program and control. ACES programming software translates CAD or CATIA tooling and laminate data into multi-axis machine commands. The platform is designed with high structural stiffness for good reliability and fast, accurate lay-up.

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.
The fusing of emerging technologies from the aerospace materials sector and biological sciences are now, for the first time, heading toward the prospect of growing parts, systems, and, ultimately, perhaps whole aircraft.
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.
