The design and development of more fuel-efficient and lower-emissions aircraft that can still meet commercial criteria, offer longer range, and provide more in-flight services including wireless Internet, video, and telephony services is an enduring requirement for airliner programs. To help achieve this, a new software application to support the design and validation of fiber-optic cable harnesses has been announced by Trace Technologies.

Article
In December 2006, the concept plane was purely that—an idea that was casually discussed among managers and designers. Epic Aircraft of Bend, OR, had manufactured several single-engine turboprops and twin-engine jet models, but a plane with just a single jet had never been attempted. At Christmas, the one-engine jet was merely a subject of conversation; in July, the Victory prototype took off for its first successful test flight.

Eclipse Aviation says its Eclipse 500 was built upon the principle of a total product lifecycle management approach combining mechanical, electronic, electrical, and manufacturing disciplines. The integration of subsystems into a final wire harness was key, this being the “living neurological system” of the aircraft, controlling all electrical and electronic signals to all essential systems.

Most people are familiar with the expression, “Trying to build a better mousetrap,” and yet no one has really been able to do it. What we tend to see, more often than not, is that an invention’s design principles serve as the basis to take that invention into new realms of possibilities and technological advancements.
