Eaton Corp. has been awarded an equipment contract with the U.S. FAA projected to exceed $40 million over a 10-year period. One of three FAA contracts currently held by Eaton, the new agreement encompasses three-phase uninterruptible power supply (UPS), maintenance bypass panels, and other associated power quality equipment, which will be deployed in mission-critical FAA installations throughout the continental U.S., Alaska, Hawaii, Guam, and Puerto Rico. The contract, which features a two-year base period with four additional two-year options, was awarded to Eaton following a five-year process, during which all equipment underwent rigorous FAA testing. A separate Eaton support contract, which provides services and spare parts to approximately 1000 FAA sites, was also renewed for an additional five years.

After many years of flat-lining in the supply of new commercial jet engines—with improved models, but with designs dating back to the late 1990s, relying on a continuous path of evolutionary development—a new generation of super-efficient powerplants is entering service, introducing many technologies that will also be applied to future engines.
SAE International is working with the joint-venture initiative looking to deploy a high-powered DC fast-charging network for battery electric vehicles (BEVs) covering long-distance travel routes in Europe.
Fuel efficiency—and the economic and ecological benefits associated with it—continues to be the white rabbit of the global aviation industry. While engine builders look toward composites and electrification, and airframe designers toward lightweighting and aerodynamics, engineers at NASA’s Glenn Research Center recently completed testing of a novel concept: the boundary layer ingesting propulsor.
