SwiftStaticDischarge filter elements from Swift Filters employ a media technology that dissipates triboelectric charges generated via the flow of fluids through filter media. The technology ensures a low charge across media and fluid over long time periods to mitigate sparking. Electrostatic discharge is a common problem with ash-free, zinc-free hydraulic and lubricating oils. Oil passing through hydraulic or lubricating system filters can generate static charges, leading to high-voltage sparks from filter media to the filter’s metal support tube. These sparks can lead to oil degradation, varnish, component damage, and potential explosions. The filter elements are suitable for applications such as power generation, plastic injection molding machines, and mobile hydraulics.

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.
