J VanDomelen It’s the last thing I think about when I board a plane; yet, it’s first of mind when I see that we’re approaching pavement at a high rate of speed upon reaching our destination. You guessed it: I’m talking about brakes. This aircraft element gains little consumer attention (unless it fails to work, of course), but the critical system component is garnering considerable attention from the technology … Read More

When the Space Shuttle retires as scheduled in June, NASA will be dependent on the Russian Soyuz spacecraft to ferry astronauts to and from the International Space Station (ISS). Based on a recent $753 million contract NASA awarded to the Russian Federal Space Agency, these outsourced services cost U.S. taxpayers roughly $63 million per seat. It’s doubtless a hefty price tag, but NASA lacks U.S.-based

J VanDomelen The mil/aero community, especially those members working in the aviation and avionics segment, is increasingly consumed with learning more and ensuring compliance with current standards and regulations. For many, regulatory compliance and all that it entails are terribly stressful and wrought with bureaucracy, various “hoops” through which to jump, and threats of excessive fines and jail time. Not surprisingly, … Read More

J VanDomelen In February of this year, at the Singapore Air Show, Commercial Aircraft Corp. of China (Comac) unveiled a commercial aircraft designed and built entirely in China: the Comac C919 twin-jet airliner—considered by many to be a serious threat to the Boeing 737. A Chinese-built version of the Airbus A320 was introduced last year. Comac and other Chinese aircraft manufacturers rely on foreign-made engines … Read More

J VanDomelen China has set its sights on the aerospace industry, and it is advancing rapidly toward its goal…of market dominance. China may be poised to take the aerospace industry by storm; the country is working (rapidly and diligently, I might add) to compete with, and perhaps overtake, longtime market leaders The Boeing Company and Airbus. “It’s the largest market outside the U.S. for commercial airplanes, … Read More

J VanDomelen With NASA’s Space Shuttle program coming to an end, the private space transportation industry is heating up. Many players are making plans to provide out-of-this-world service in the not too distant future. As I have discussed in previous blogs, a growing number of companies (such as SpaceX and Scaled Composites) and private incentive programs (such as Ansari X Prize) have been encouraging the privately … Read More
