Steve Carl wrote an article for Mobile Computing Today that talks about how Credence Research is extrapolating that the fasteners markets to be reaching over $100 billion dollars by 2023. The report by Credence Research, Inc is “Industrial Fasteners Market (By Application (Original Equipment Manufacturing, Construction, and Maintenance/Repair/Operation (MRO)), By Product Type (Standard Fasteners (External Threaded, Internal Threaded, and Non-Threaded), Aerospace-grade Fasteners, and Other Application-specific Fasteners)) – Growth, Share, Opportunities, Competitive Analysis, and Forecast 2016 – 2023.”
In 2015, the four top industrial fastener manufacturers accounted for lass then 45% of the global market revenue. These top four industrial fastener manufacturers include Precision Castparts Corporation (the U.S.), Stanley Black & Decker Inc (the U.S.), Wilhelm Bollhoff GmbH & Co. KG (Germany), and Nitto Seiko Co., Ltd. (Japan). Because there isn’t a lot of product differentiation, there are a lot of price wars that occur to the manufactures to get business. This is where manufacturers try to focus on product enhancements now.

The British Ministry of Defense announced the purchase of its third Zephyr-S Unmanned Aerial Vehicle. This record breaking aircraft is only part of its contract with Airbus Defence and Space, valued at 13 million British Pounds. This Zephyr-S is unlike any in its class. It surpasses the capabilities offered by a typical aerial vehicle. The aircraft’s performance resembles more of a satellite’s with its ability to fly for 45 days straight at two times the elevation of a commercial plane. Because of its impressive 70,000feet reach, it is sometimes referenced as a High Altitude Pseudo Satellite.
The third Zephyr-S will join the other two ordered earlier this February to form an Operational Concept Demonstrator that will demonstrate its full capabilities and usefulness for the UK’s Armed Forces. This new Zephyr-S alone is expected to gather more reliable information with a greater level of detail at a constant rate. This is only the beginning of the BMD’s strategy to increase defense. According to Michael Fallon. the Defence Secretary, Zephyr-S is part of the new technology they plan on using to better equip British Special Forces. A better defense means more money invested in ships, aircraft carriers, troops, and cyber security. Britain has no problem investing in their defense especially after the increase in threats to national security. A contract has already been set to increase spending on their defense each year for the next ten years to successfully accomplish safeguarding the country. The collaboration between Airbus and the UK on this purchase also functions as a boost for British economy and for its armed forces.

Dale E. Van Cor is born and raised in Winchester. He is an inventor working on a better reformed system for nuts and bolts. His goal revolves around a fastener that is the powerhouse of all bolts or nuts. These fasteners will be more dependable than the average bolt or nut making them a better choice. Dale has also shared his invention with a teammate from Massachusetts named Harrison Frye who is a mechanical engineer. Harrison has been using a 3D printer to create a trial run of Dale’s design. Amazingly, when Harrison examined a wave threaded-cap-and tube connection on August 18th, it was withholding 20 pounds of water current for up to one hour. Dale mentioned that as of now only one out of ten trials have worked at full capacity.
This is a whole new design that is not like anything else ever made for physical connections so they are of knowledge that there will need to be patience. There is a goal to make O-rings and gaskets secured to perfection. They have mentioned that the spaceship Challenger failed due to O-ring complications, so the goal is to make them last for eternity. Some great leverage about this design is that there is complete contact between the superficial layers which is beneficial for the production of forwarding vibrations rather than holding them captive. Harrison and Dale believe that this product will be best used for aviation purposes due to the weight management that it can support. Van Cor greatly stresses the greatness of 3D printers and how they are useful in large amounts of production. He believes in the near future most will own their own 3D printer to assist with repairs around the house. Overall, this upcoming year will hopefully have a better technology in fasteners created by Harrison Van Cor.

Sonex Aircraft the kitplane maker is looking to introduce the homebuilt aircraft culture to mainland China. At the EAA AirVenture this week, Sonex Aircraft which is based in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, announced that it had collaborated on a partnership with the Chinese firm Uniworld in order to promote its line of aircraft kits and AeroConversion product line in China. By adopting a multi-tier strategy consisting of immersion in the Chinese training infrastructure for GA pilots and technicians, governmental advocacy and fanning the flames of growth for its recreational aviation enthusiast base. Sonex has selected Beijing Aviation Technology (BAT) as a franchisee and named Uniworld’s Francis Chao as the director of Sonex operations in China.
Sonex general manager Mark Schaible admits that expanding business in China won’t be easy as it is a “complex place for Western companies to do business with aviation in China already presenting its own unique and complex challenges.” Beijing Aviation Technology (BAT) has established a new aviation education center which features Sonex and flight simulator manufacturer Precision Flight Controls in Beijing. This goal of this center is to educate the Chinese public, entrepreneurs and government officials about general aviation which includes a space for workshops, seminars, aircraft projects as well as provide living quarters and offices for all the international aviation professionals who wish to share their knowledge and experience with center visitors.
Sonex hopes to increase recreational aviation freedom allowing the construction of amateur built aircrafts by lobbying with the Chines Civil Aviation Authority. The plan is to use the FAA regulations as a working template in order to establish a dealer and support network throughout China. Schaible believes that in order for privatized general aviation to grow and succeed in China, a network of private A&P and flight schools must be established in order for the qualified personnel supporting general aviation to become owner/operator consumers of GA products in China. The current aviation landscape in China only supports training operations primarily for the airlines and military.

Every year The U.S. Space & Rocket Center and long-term partner Honeywell hosts over 200 teachers from 25 countries and 36 U.S. states and territories at the HESA (Honeywell Educators at Space Academy) which spans over the course of two consecutive weeks in the month of June. This year the award-winning scholarship program which was created by Honeywell Hometown Solutions in partnership with USSRC hosted six teachers from the Philippines.
The program is designed to help middle school math and science teachers be more effective at teaching the STEM subjects such as science, technology, engineering and math. Since the time of its inception way back in 2004, HESA has helped over 2,576 educators from 56 countries and 52 U.S. states and territories graduate. CEO and Executive Director of the Rocket Center Dr. Deborah Barnhart practically beamed while stating how proud and fortunate they were to be able to partner up with Honeywell to offer this amazing program in order to help teachers and educators from all over the world. Dr. Deborah Barnhart believes that the program provides teachers with the innovative tools they need in order to engage students and lead them to more success in the classroom and ultimately in life. Past educators and teachers who have attended the program swear that
“HESA changed the way they teach and reinvigorated their passion for their work”.
The program consists of 45 hours of classroom, lab work and workshops focusing specifically on science and space exploration. This once in a lifetime experience includes sessions simulating astronaut-style exercises such as interactive flight dynamics programs, high-performance jet simulation, scenario-based space missions, and land/water survival training. 2016 Philippine graduate Christoper Ramayla gives his own testimony on how HESA was the best training he’s ever had and how eternally grateful he is for having been blessed with the opportunity to attend. HESA has a rigorous application process and qualified teachers are awarded scholarships, round-trip airfare, tuition, meals and accommodations completely free of charge courtesy of Honeywell and its employees. Honeywell to this date has provided over 3 million students with invaluable teaching techniques as a direct result of the HESA program.

Sukhoi has started a project on building a larger version of the super-jet 100. There hasn’t been much marketing on the new jet but the designs have been clearly made and clearly show that the new super jet is going to seat from 20 to 120 extra seats per jet. Nazario Cauceglia, the CEO of super Jet International has stated the new design of the Sukhoi 120 seat superjet is not going to the narrow plane market. Also, Sukhoi SSJ100 had two different versions where two different types of the winglets used on their aircraft, one was set at 1,500 nm and the other was set at 2,400 nm. However, the first prototype of the Sukhoi 120 seat superjet is going to have a 2,000 nm range.
Cauceglia has stated that redesigning the SSJ100 is going to cost a lot of money, which is why the new design of the 120 seat superjet is not going to be far from the SSJ100. The weight of the 120SSJ is going to increase significantly due to the increase in size. The CEO of PowerJet has stated that PowerJet SaM146 turbofan powerplant is not going to change at all, it’s enough to thrust at 2.5% more than the original version.
Two customers who have agreed to be part of the SSJ100 promotion, Ireland’s CityJet and Mexico’s Interjet, have favored Sukhoi civil aircraft, the SuperJet 100, over the airbus A320 and they don’t feel like they are ready to jump into the 120 Seat SuperJet. The crews that utilizes the SSJ100 have showed more interest and said that the superjet has a slight edge over the technology in the aircraft over the Airbus A320.

Introducing the new snap-lugs, a ruggedized power connector, that will replace the current and traditional terminal lugs, are a great innovation of TE Connectivity Ltd... They are an easy and quick to process without all the bulkiness of the traditional terminal lugs. They can connect thick gauge power cables to grounding devices, bus bars, power panels, and relays and therefore are used in Aerospace, Defense, Marine and many other harsh environments that require a ruggedized power connector. What makes these snap-lugs unique in their nature is that you can connect them and disconnect them without the requirement of a wrench and applying any torque force.
The snap-lugs are installed and disconnected without any special tools, a simple snap on to install it in place, and a simple push to release it. This feature makes it very easy for to deal with the bulkiness and ruggedness of the part. Also, snap-lugs are colored differently in order to distinguish between polarities, this will make it easier not to switch the polarities and avoiding any damage from reverse polarities. The snap-lugs are made shock proof to protect from any accidental shock accidents because they don’t require to have any metal on the outside. They also can withstand high intensity vibrations and extreme temperatures, which makes them ideal in harsh environments.
These advantages bring some benefits to the user because not only they are easy to use but that makes them accessible in confined places which doesn’t require room for installation due to the snap on/off feature. Also the exclusion of wrenches, washers and nuts which can be a challenging if the space is not big enough and the environment is unstable.

Kelsey D. Atherton released an article on Popular Science’s website that writes about how there is conversation amongst defense companies that are proposing to launch drones from aircrafts carriers that are already in flight.
In the past, the United States Airforce was afraid to lose their aircrafts in the sky to other external factors. However, with the rise of drones, the US Air Force is taking steps in order to have unmanned aircrafts (or drones) to be sent out of aircrafts in mid-flight as protection. In this way, The US Air Force aircrafts will still be able to remain stealthy by using sensors.
One obstacle that the US Air Force is now facing is keeping the cost of the drones low. They want to implement these drones into many different types of small planes that don’t require much fuel or electrical power.
As of right now, DARPA’s plan is to have drones launch from adapted cargo planes. Not only should these drones be launched from the cargo planes, the drones would also be able to land back in the cargo planes as well.
However there are companies like SAIC and ArcXeon that want plans to take off from airships instead of adapted cargo planes. Here is what AirStation has to say about it this. “Airships themselves have been proposed as long-endurance surveillance platforms, but U.S. Army and Air Force programs started during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were ultimately canceled. Instead, says [SAIC senior aerospace engineer Ron] Hochstetler, the trend has been toward a more distributed, multiplatform, multisensor capability using small- and medium-size UAS.
But conventional UAS require support infrastructure and
“their ground- and ship-based launch sites cannot be quickly relocated as needed, and are often unable to operate on land or ocean areas due to political sensitivities,” Hochstetler argues. “For UAS operations to fully reach their maximum capability, they require the mobility and geographical independence of an airborne support platform dedicated to UAS launch and recovery operations,” he says.”

First Delivery of Pratt & Whitney Modified A320neo Engines has arrived at Airbus group; whereby it will be installed on the Airbus A320neo. The new engines’ hardware has been modified to speed up the start time of the PW1100. Clients awaiting the new engine include Lufthansa and IndiGo; who plan to equip it in their PW1100G-powered aircraft. However, with the arrival of the new engine, not everyone is on board. Operators such as Qatar Airways has expressed that they have no interest in the new A320neo Engines; until the new aircraft start-time requirements are similar to those of A320s powered with in-service CFM International CFM56 or International Aero Engines V2500 engines.
Pratt is responding to this situation with a combination of software and hardware changes that are related to thermal bowing and the rotor bow. When an engine shuts down, it could result in unequal temperatures across the shaft section supporting the rotor. This would cause thermal deformation to the shaft material which would lead to the rotor axis to bend. At times, this could cause the compressor tips to potentially make contact with seals, linings and walls. Pratt & Whitney have solved this issue by prolonging the start-up time of the engine temporarily. A slower start-up time allow for a more even heating of the engine; thus eliminating uneven thermal deformation. In order to temporarily prolong the start-uptime of the engine, an engine-control software is put into place which would use sensors inside the engine to interrupt the start sequence at a low-pressure spool speed. Once the engine is at low-pressure spool speed, a signal is given to the engine software that indicates that the process has minimized the temperature differences to acceptable levels and normal start-up resumes.
The new revisions to the A320neo engines will have a maximum cooling time down of 90 seconds and will be delivered in June. Other changes introduced will include:

The defense industry crushes the risks found within supply chains by tackling three key aspects of the industry. Experts look at supplier risk, narrowing profit margin, and demand risk. Controlling these prevents the market from crumbling and counterfeit products from even coming in.
Supplier risk comes with product failures that can lead to disastrous events. This is why quality control Is essential for the aviation industry. Products need to be tested out to prove to work as intended. Buying from suppliers who have not been in the market for long is risky. They may not be quality products or just bad imitations. To battle this, buyers need to purchase from well-established suppliers who have demonstrated their products work.
Narrowing profit margins is the second aspect looked at.
To deal with profit and job losses that come from renegotiating contracts because of budget cuts, some suppliers compromise the quality of the parts they sell. This leads to inferior products to enter the market without notice. Congress has failed to act thus far, and a long-term strategy has to be established soon to prevent this from continuing, especially when there is little room for error in this industry.
Demand risk come from budget cuts and a natural fluctuation in the market. Manufacturers find ways to offer protection for suppliers to avoid financial burdens when there is a deficiency in demand. Rising cost is one way companies prevent their profits from diminishing ever further. Aging programs also offer a risk, as continuing to invest in a program may no longer yield as much profit as originally anticipated.
Focusing on this at once is not possible- or smart. Each risk has to be tackled separately through a series of strategies, not just one. If any problems arise, managing each glitch one at a time turns out to be more efficient- as the entire plan does not collapse at once.
