A new partnership will let reservists from the U.S. Army Reserve's Information Operations Command get ideas for improving military infrastructure and security information from Carnegie Mellon University's Software Engineering Institute (www.sei.cmu.edu). Congress has approved $1.5 million to support a joint initiative to promote information assurance, which includes security and other factors that insure data integrity. Reservists and researchers will examine cyber vulnerabilities and ways that reservists can respond to threats.
Design collaboration now includes the entire value chain. From suppliers to customers, purchasing to outside experts, the collaborative design team includes internal and external groups. The design process now stretches across the globe in multiple software formats.
A new high-pressure injection-molding technology produces near-net shape parts with 2-inch-thick walls from high-performance materials like PEEK, PAI, and carbon-filled polymers. Parts show no voids, sinks, or porosity, have more consistent mechanical properties, and are stronger.
