A new book from SAE International focuses on automating the process of drilling and countersinking holes during airframe manufacturing. Since this is an area of major return-on-investment potential for airframe producers, the book (“Automated/Mechanized Drilling and Countersinking of Airframes”) provides a stepped approach for evaluating possible areas for applying automation and a detailed description of the process for choosing, acquiring, and transitioning the right machinery for success. It also provides a vision for a 10- to 15-year future state of airframe manufacture. Authored by George N. Bullen, President and CEO of Smart Blades Inc. and founder of the International Aerospace Automation Consortium, the book will help readers understand the evolution of automated/mechanized drilling and countersinking airframes, evaluate the feasibility of applying automation/mechanization to any airframe, and learn the necessary processes for testing and transitioning machinery to production.

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.
