Three Levers for Accelerating Lightweighting in Aerospace: Advanced Materials, Additive Manufacturing, Materials Intelligence


Accelerating the delivery of lighter weight aircraft is possible by focusing on three key levers: more extensive use of advanced materials, broader adoption of new manufacturing techniques and extraction of more value from existing materials data. This white paper delves into the opportunities and challenges presented by each, and provides best practices for reducing fuel costs and emissions th... » read more

Manufacturing Bits: Nov. 13


Power beams The U.S. Naval Research Laboratory and PowerLight Technologies have demonstrated the ability to transmit energy using a long-range, free-space power beaming system. The system is being developed as part of the Power Transmitted Over Laser (PTROL) project. The system consists of two 13-foot-high towers. One tower consists of 2-kilowatt laser transmitter. The other tower consist o... » read more
