The Chainflex CF Robot from igus is a shielded robot cable for applications involving high levels of torsion. It is designed for both robotic and nonrobotic uses, such as rotary tables or spindle drives that are supplied with high power levels. The cable features a torsion-resistant tin-plated copper shield. The forces effected on the cable by torsional movements are largely absorbed by sliding and buffer elements between the sheath, shield, and insulation; this prevents early shield failure. The outer sheath material is a high-grade thermoplastic elastomer mixture with good wear properties. The twistable cable has successfully passed testing of more than 3 million torsional movements to ±270°.

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.
