The first challenge is to implement modular integration with a compact, lightweight packaging system that it is rugged enough for the aerospace environment. At first glance, it looks like it's simply a matter of the OEMs leveraging COTS technologies and making them more robust.
I think we can work a lot closer with Canadian industry to make sure that we're continuing to be a strong supporter of the Canadian aerospace environment."
"In today's defense and aerospace environment, having the ability to work with an established in-country or in-region company is essential not only for us but for the end user, especially when it comes to repair and sustainment," said Jim Garceau, vice president and deputy general manager of Communications and Control Solutions at BAE Systems.
Safran For Safran, a key highlight of the year just gone was the delivery of the 20,000th CFM56 engine, a milestone reached during what chief executive Jean-Paul Herteman describes as a "solid performancein an unsettled civil aerospace environment".
He received a degree in physics from Seattle University in 1982 and worked in the military and aerospace environment for 21 years and in commercial electronics for the last 10.
Weather is not just something to react to, but is part of the aerospace environment that we have to plan for and safely handle every day.
He added: 'Having proven our capability to win competitive contracts in the modern aerospace environment, Meggitt intends to lead the way towards more widespread use of effective condition monitoring in both aviation and industrial applications.'
With a unique ability to process instructions simultaneously, MIPS processors deliver very large I/O throughput and fast processing capabilities with minimal power and weight, making them ideal for the computationally intensive aerospace environment. To ensure complete code coverage, LDRA's tool suite accounts for the MIPS processor's ability to execute multiple instructions simultaneously and predicatively execute instructions down the pipeline.
But it is the company's integrated system that makes the Clamp-Nut successful in applications that range from mission-critical aerospace environments to key industrial processes.
The blend has potential for lower-weight, high-temperature continuous use applications such as semi-conductor chip trays, connectors for harsh environments, and metal replacement in high-heat oil and gas and aerospace environments. It is seen as replacing metals, ceramics and thermosets which are complicated to process and can add cost and weight.
