Bookham's New Focus 8780 GuideStar four-axis beam stabilization controller enables precise laser measurem­ent in critical applications including advanced scientific research, semiconductor metrology and lithography, material processing, and aerospace and defense systems. The integrated controller and driver with built-in microprocessor is designed to correct laser beam misalignments arising from factors including pointing drift inherent in the laser source as well as thermal and stress induced changes in the optics and mechanics within the laser-based system. The controller combines with the New Focus USB-compatible position-sensing detectors and "set and forget" Picomotor actuated motorized mirror mounts to provide a complete beam control solution.

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.
