Vericut Composite Paths for Engineering (VCPe) from CGTech gives designers and engineers of composite parts access to the same software tools that NC programmers use to create NC program paths subsequently used in the workshop to lay up a composite part. The tool can be used to create and experiment with various automated fiber placement (AFP) path options and evaluate the effects AFP manufacturing has on a composite part’s design intent. VCPe reads CATIA V5, NX, STEP, or ACIS surface models. It also reads FiberSim, CATIA V5, NX, or other external ply geometry and information. It then adds material to fill the plies according to user-specified manufacturing standards and requirements. Layup paths are linked to form specific layup sequences.

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.
