LNS Research and Manufacturing.net hosted a webinar entitled: "Weaving the Digital Thread in Aerospace & Defense Manufacturing: Strategies for Connecting to the Customer Experience." Throughout the course of the event, we had a number of questions from attendees. As is typically the case, though, we were unable to get to all of them. In this post, we'll reexamine these questions and provide answers to a few that went unaddressed.

Learn how Big Data and Analytics are Driving Operational Excellence for A&D Manufacturers and SuppliersDecember 10, 2014 10:04 am | by Greg Goodwin | Articles | Comments
New technologies can be daunting, particularly in Aerospace and Defense manufacturing. With such a high value attached to data security and production downtime, manufacturers need to make sure that the potential rewards of new technologies are worth the inherent risks. Find out how today’s technologies are eliminating these risks and accelerating operational excellence in leading A&D companies.
On the second attempt day, NASA successfully launched Orion from Cape Canaveral Friday morning. A future phase of the mission is to take astronauts first to an asteroid and eventually to Mars, possibly in the 2030s.
NASA's first attempt to launch Orion, a new exploration capsule, was scrubbed Thursday after numerous delays. The ultimate goal for Orion is to take astronauts to Mars, but that won't happen until at least the 2030s.
Boeing has completed the world's first flight using "green diesel," a sustainable biofuel that is widely available and used in ground transportation.
Companies are working on building supersonic jets that can fly twice as fast as today's commercial planes.
A report by federal accident investigators points to a manufacturing defect as the likely cause of an internal short circuit that led to a battery fire in a Boeing 787 airliner parked at Boston's airport last year.
Emirates performs a heavy maintenance check on the world's largest passenger plane, the A380. The process took 55 days to complete. Here it is in under two minutes.
The 3D printer delivered to the International Space Station two months ago made a sample replacement part for itself this week. It churned out a new faceplate for the print head casing.
Researchers in South Korea are developing a robotic pilot that could potentially replace humans in the cockpit. Unlike drones and autopilot programs which are configured for specific aircraft, the robots' humanoid design will allow it to fly any type of plane with no additional sensors.
The pilot of the Virgin Galactic spaceship that tore apart over the Mojave Desert didn't know his co-pilot had prematurely unlocked its brakes, though protocol for the test flight required the co-pilot to announce the step, federal investigators said.
The large majority of aerospace manufacturers said they plan to increase their workforce over the next 12 months, expect to win new long-term supply agreements in the next three years, and expect aircraft deliveries to continue to grow at least through 2016.
Boeing officials say they are discussing the sale of the company's land in south Wichita, Kansas.
The space tourism company that suffered a tragic setback when its experimental rocket-powered spaceship broke apart over the California desert could resume test flights as early as next summer if it can finish building a replacement craft.
Orbital Sciences says it will likely stop using the type of engines that were employed when its unmanned Antares commercial supply rocket bound for the International Space Station exploded moments after liftoff last week.
Despite the fatal crash of Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo, Richard Branson says the risk of testing commercial space flights is worth it.
