Shenyang Aircraft Corp. has been awarded a contract to supply the center fuselage of the new 100- to 149-seat class Bombardier CSeries aircraft.

Bombardier Aerospace signed a contract with the Shenyang Aircraft Corp. (SAC), a subsidiary of the state-owned aviation industrial entity China Aviation Industry Corp. (AVIC I), to supply the center fuselage on the newly launched Bombardier CSeries aircraft. Under the contract, AVIC I/SAC will take part in the design, manufacture, assembly, and relevant testing, as well as aftermarket support, of four major work packages. In June 2007, Bombardier and SAC announced a memorandum of understanding for a long-term strategic cooperation in the 90- to 149-seat commercial aircraft market.

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.
The fusing of emerging technologies from the aerospace materials sector and biological sciences are now, for the first time, heading toward the prospect of growing parts, systems, and, ultimately, perhaps whole aircraft.
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.
