TL Precision Welding uses Laserdyne Systems' Laserdyne 790 BeamDirector systems for new laser processing work as well as engine refurbishing; the system enables the company to drill difficult-to-machine materials such as Inconel 617, Titanium, and Hastelloy X. A significant amount of engine overhaul calls for the repair and refurbishing of engine components' airflow holes. To position and laser process each of these holes accurately without damaging the part requires the extreme accuracy displayed by the Laserdyne system. The "through-the-lens" viewing feature magnifies clearly all hole features at 45 times magnification. The Automatic Focus Control feature guides the motion system, maintaining critical focus position and following the contour of the part, regardless of slight surface irregularities. All machine axes react to sensing of the part surface, creating unlimited R-axis correction with high speed and sensitivity. A drill-on-the-fly feature delivers laser beam pulses to the part by the stationary laser while the part is rotated. Hole placement is a function of rotational speed and laser pulse frequency. If multiple pulses are required, the software synchronizes the part's movement to the laser pulses, ensuring that multiple pulses are delivered to the exact location required.

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.
