DARPA's ALIAS successfully lands a Boeing 737 simulator

Aurora Flight Sciences demonstrated DARPA's ALIAS automated flight technology in a Boeing 737 simulator. ALIAS showcased its ability to utilize the existing 737 auto-landing system to autonomously land the aircraft safely in the event of pilot incapacitation.

Airbus has its eye on the future of cleaner flight

With its European base and global presence, it would only make sense that Airbus would take a leading role in the EU’s CleanSky 2, a joint technology initiative that is the follow-up to the CleanSky aerospace research program.

Predicting cavitation in fuel pumps

Liquid ring pumps are used in aircraft fuel systems in conjunction with main impeller pumps and are used for priming the pump system as well as to remove fuel vapor and air from the fuel.

Boeing examines expanded metal foils for lightning protection of composite structures

A widely used material for lightning strike protection of CFRP structures within the aerospace industry is expanded metal foil (EMF). An issue with EMF is micro cracking of the paint, which can result in corrosion of the metal foil and subsequent loss of conductivity. Boeing researchers examined the issues of stress and displacement in the composite structure layup, which contribute to paint cracking caused by aircraft thermal cycling.

3-D printing in aerospace: not just winging it

The demand for innovative manufacturing technology that produces lighter parts with stronger material grows each day in the competitive aerospace industry. 3-D printing, also known as “additive manufacturing,” is at the center of this innovation.
