Boeing planning new manufacturing facility in Illinois

  • 23-Aug-2010 01:42 EDT

The Boeing Co. is expanding its St. Louis-area operations with the planned opening of a manufacturing facility at MidAmerica Airport in Mascoutah, IL. The facility, tentatively scheduled to open late this year or in early 2011, will use leased space in an existing building to house assembly and subassembly work. It is expected to initially bring approximately 75 new manufacturing jobs to Illinois. Boeing and St. Clair County are entering into a long-term lease for the existing 50,000-ft2 building, which is the first Boeing manufacturing center in Illinois. Home to Boeing Defense, Space & Security headquarters, the Boeing St. Louis site has approximately 16,000 employees and is Missouri’s largest manufacturer and second-largest employer. Key products manufactured at the site include the F/A-18, F-15, C-17, and weapons.

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.
