Manufacturing Technology Insights | Wednesday, November 04, 2020

The aerospace industry uses the latest trends and technologies to manage the increasing demand for aircraft. 

FREMONT, CA: In recent years, the demand for aircraft of different sizes and models has increased immensely. To maintain the increasing demand for air travel, the companies must have more aircraft and technological advancements that can be used to solve the present and future challenges of the aviation industry. Here are two of the most important which the aviation industry has to deal

High demand for new aircraft production – It is estimated that the need for new aircraft is growing immensely in the next few years. It will have a significant impact on the aviation supply chain, globally.

Global security risks – In the last few years, commercial aviation's risk has increased, which has resulted in hijackings, terrorism, and even aircraft disappearances. Therefore, it has become necessary to invest in R&D to enhance the security, monitoring, and tracking of aircraft.

Here are some of the trends being followed by the aviation industry for military and commercial aircraft. 

1. Internet-of-Things:

The technology of IoT has evolved the aerospace industry in several ways. It successfully transforms everyday tasks in the aviation sector that starts from assembly and manufacture to maintenance, safety, and tracking an aircraft's location. Implementing IoT in aviation will help companies fight against complicated situations by embracing new trends such as fixed sensors in engines, device monitors, data storage, and information technology advancement. Its device integration needs the support of numerous touchpoints and notifications, alerts, and customized application development. Many such data are already available in public, private, or hybrid clouds, but they must be easily accessible by the aviation companies to make use of it commercially. In the recent trend, the companies shift their focus to manage connected devices from a single interface.

 2. Advanced fly-by-wire system:

The modern and highly advanced fly-by-wire (FBW) systems are being utilized for controlling the l unstable aircraft. The system is a computer-configured controlling mechanism that can help aerospace companies modify the pilot's manual inputs according to the control parameters. Most of the time, the pre-flight safety checks of fly-by-wire systems are performed using Built-In-Test Equipment. The Automated Test Equipment (ATE) is one of the examples of built-in test equipment. It can be designed by specialized software like LabVIEW and can be defined by utilizing the Acceptance Test Procedure (ATP). It also helps to decrease the testing time, manual efforts, and maintenance expenses.
