Hyderabad, Feb 18 (PTI) Integrated miniaturised avionics, smart sensors and innovative guidance schemes would be the backbone of futuristic aerospace and defence systems, G Satheesh Reddy, Scientific Advisor to the Defence Minister, said today.

“Integrated, miniaturised avionics and smart sensors will be the backbone for futuristic aerospace and defence systems. We need to establish necessary infrastructure to provide highly accurate and effective algorithms for the control and guidance of fighter aircrafts, missiles and launch vehicles to make them into next generation systems,” Reddy said.

He was addressing the third International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC) Conference on Advances in Control and Optimisation of Dynamical Systems (ACODS-2018), organised by the DRDO here.

Synergetic efforts of research and development institutes, academia and industries had enabled our country to achieve self-reliance on several technological fronts, he said, adding that technologies had been evolving quickly and the need was to focus on smart and adaptive systems to make our aerospace vehicles cost effective and state-of-the-art.

DRDO Chairman and Secretary, Department of Defence Reserach and Development, S Christopher said, “Control and guidance technologies are crucial technologies that find widespread applications in both civil and defence sectors. Futuristic weapon systems will be smart, intelligent, complex and technologically advanced.” PTI VVK BNM

New training program to begin at Robert C. Byrd National Aerospace Education Center to fill Bombardier positions – WV News

BRIDGEPORT — A special eight-week training program that will teach students the necessary skills to begin a promising career in the aerospace industry will take off at the beginning of March at Bridgeport’s Robert C. Byrd National Aerospace Education Center, which is a part of Pierpont Community & Technical College.

The program, which will accept 16 students and two alternatives, was specifically requested by officials at Bombardier’s West Virginia Air Center, said Thomas Stose, director of the Aerospace Education Center.

“Bombardier asked us if we would put on another one of our Aircraft Structures training programs,” he said.

The program will begin March 5 and run through April 27, Stose said.

The class is designed to help unemployed or underemployed individuals learn the basics of aircraft sheet metal work and aircraft safety in a short period of time, Stose said.

“This was developed with the input from the aerospace industry here at North Central West Virginia Airport. They realized the need for another pathway for those who don’t have the 21 months to go through the full Federal Aviation Administration certification program.”

For eight weeks, students will get experience in and out of the classroom eight hours a day, five days a week, said Kimberly Cale, director of operations for continuing education at Pierpont Community & Technical College.

“The class is extremely hands-on,” she said. “They’re shooting rivets on day one.”

The cost of attending the program is $4,500, plus $500 for tools, but there is financial aid available for qualifying students, Cale said.

“They can potentially have this class 100 percent paid for in the form of a grant that they don’t have to repay,” she said.

In order to be accepted into the program, students will need to

Ascent Aerospace (Macomb, MI, US), a leading provider of tooling systems, factory automation and assembly line integration services, announced on Feb. 12 plans to reorganize and expand the company’s engineering resources.

Ascent is consolidating the engineering teams from its longstanding Michigan businesses, Global Tooling Systems, Odyssey Industries, Brown Aerospace and Ascent Integration – North America into an Engineering Center of Excellence at its Macomb campus. This consolidated team will build on the existing strength of each organization’s engineering and design capability and bring it together under one roof for improved collaboration, process standardization, and manufacturing support. The size of the engineering team will be increased throughout 2018 and beyond, due to the high demand for complex integrated systems. The new Engineering Center of Excellence will compliment Ascent Engineering in Bothell, WA, which was established as Ascent’s original Engineering Center of Excellence in 2013. The Bothell office has recently expanded its office space to accommodate a rapidly growing engineering team there as well.

The combined activities are part of a broader effort to harmonize activities across Ascent. Combining work streams across the company will improve planning, reduce outsourcing, lead to consistent work practices, and facilitate cross training. According to Michael Mahfet, CEO of Ascent Aerospace, “By leveraging our footprint, and standardizing our heritage expertise and work processes, we can serve customers at a much higher level and create a better working environment for our teams.”

Under Mahfet’s leadership, Ascent’s facilities across the portfolio have united around common goals and shared best practices. These changes have enabled Ascent to better serve OEM, Tier 1 and Tier 2 customers in the commercial aerospace, business aviation, defense, space launch and satellite industries.
