Northrop Grumman and Green Hills Software part of H-1 upgrades

The lightweight, open-architecture FlightPro Gen III mission computer integrates advanced mission, weapons, and video-processing capabilities into a conduction-cooled, high-performance airborne computer capable of driving four independent, multi-function displays.

HondaJet goes on show

An important element in its recent world tour was the participation of the new HondaJet at the European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (EBACE), held at Geneva, which was its first European appearance.

High-strength aluminum powder developed for additive manufacturing in aerospace, automotive

Metal laser melting has made a successful leap from rapid prototyping to an approved manufacturing technology, and the method is increasingly becoming an option for companies in high-tech industries, according to Toolcraft. And now the German manufacturer has teamed with Airbus APWorks to offer another option for additive manufacturing—the Airbus subsidiary’s Scalmalloy high-performance aluminum powder.

Sikorsky’s S-97 takes successful first flight

During the May 22 flight, which lasted approximately one hour, Raider pilots took the aircraft through a series of maneuvers designed to test the aircraft’s hover and low-speed capability.

3D-printed parts fly on Airbus A350 XWB and ULA rockets

Additive manufacturing is making significant headway in aerospace production programs, as evidenced by recent announcements that Airbus and rocket manufacturer United Launch Alliance both are—or soon will be—flying aircraft that incorporate 3D-printed parts enabled by Stratasys.

Lightweighting focus for TE's connectivity solutions

TE Connectivity’s aluminum COPALUM Lite sealed terminals and splices provide fast, easy terminations for aerospace applications, while reducing weight up to 60%. The company's INSTALITE RoHS-compliant braid, which offers high electrical performance over a range of frequencies, is up to 50% lighter than traditional braid.

Designing composite engine cowling for improved heat resistance

Thermal imaging data obtained from a FLIR high-performance camera shows that the expected turbine output temperature is approximately 285°C when the helicopter is in forward flight. However, during hover operations a steady state temperature of about 343°C will be reached.

LEAP for Boeing 737 MAX makes first flight

At the end of April, Boeing and CFM International initiated flight testing of the LEAP-1B engine on a modified 747 flying testbed at GE Aviation Flight Test Operations.
