Fibersim 2012 from Siemens PLM Software provides risk-reducing solutions for industries employing composites engineering. The software was developed by Vistagy, which was acquired by Siemens and is now one of its business units. Fibersim reduces uncertainty in the performance of composite parts by defining, communicating, and validating desired fiber orientations throughout the product development process, ensuring that they meet specification. By eliminating design interpretation errors, the release significantly reduces the risk of producing over-engineered parts that not only behave unpredictably but are also heavier and more costly than necessary. Specific benefits of the software include increasing opportunities for optimizing designs, accurately simulating how composite materials conform to complex shapes, efficiently communicating a complete part definition between design and analysis, and simplifying composite part development and documentation.

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.
