Newport’s HXP1000 Hexapod six-axis parallel kinematic positioning system can accommodate a centered load of 450 kg or a load of 200 kg in any orientation. The large hexapod is compact for its load capacity, measuring 550 mm diameter and 395 mm nominal height. Features include long travel ranges, fast speeds, high stiffness and stability, and two software-settable pivot points. The device is suited for motion-positioning tasks requiring up to six degrees of motion and flexible coordinate systems or pivot points. Applications include optics and satellite assembly and testing, wafer alignment and bonding, x-ray diffraction, materials analysis, micromachining/micro-manipulation, sensor calibration, and simulation.

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.
