As aircraft carriers continue to update their fleets with new designs and retrofits, design engineers face new challenges in selecting components that not only adhere to changing Aerospace design needs, but provide proven functionality as well.
Weight reduction across the aircraft and the incorporation of new technologies that improve passenger comfort and enhance safety and security for example, are leading trends in the industry.
For design engineers, this means they must consider many requirements when selecting components for Aerospace applications, including:
- Maximizing the passenger flight experience
- Supporting crew in performing service tasks safely and securely
- Complementing aircraft studio interior styling
- Meeting Aerospace quality and production standards
- Reducing the overall carbon footprint
