A U.S. Navy MH-53E Sea Dragon tows a minesweeping system.

Sikorsky Aerospace Services awarded CPI Aerostructures Inc. a $1.2 million contract to provide tow assemblies for the MH-53E Sea Dragon helicopter. Delivery of these assemblies, which will be used as spares, will begin in late 2010. The MH-53E Sea Dragon is a carrier-based, and other warship-based, aircraft and fills the U.S. Navy’s need for long-range minesweeping or airborne mine countermeasures missions. The Sea Dragon is capable of towing a variety of minesweeping countermeasure systems, including the MK 105 minesweeping sled, the ASQ-14 side-scan sonar, and the MK 103 mechanical minesweeping system. The assembly to be manufactured by CPI is an electromechanical device used to operate the aircraft’s tow boom.

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.
