The Air Force Research Laboratory is developing a high-temperature, high-performance dielectric film for the aircraft capacitors. Capacitors are devices that store electrical charges. The new film, called Fluorene Poly Ester, is suitable for applications from -55 to 227C. Aircraft capacitors are the weakest link in an aircraft's power electronics system because of their limited operating temperature, according to Sandra Fries-Carr, one of two developers of the film at the Air Force Research Laboratory. The laboratory formed a partnership with Wright Technology Network for developing the film for capacitor manufacturers. Initial applications include military aircraft projects.

The problem with a four-, five-, or six-year degree is that they don’t teach engineers the soft skills required to have a successful career. Here are seven skills that every engineering graduate needs to be successful.
Design teams are operating in a business environment that increasingly requires them to collaborate and share data across extended teams, multiple organizations, and widespread locations. Autodesk’s customers are looking for a solution that eliminates project bottlenecks, such as the time-consuming and error-ridden process of shuttling design reviews and revisions back and forth among team members.
