    SAE’s Electric Aircraft Steering Group brings together technical experts, researchers and regulatory personnel to define best practices for the development of electrical systems for tomorrow’s aircraft. Newer Boeing and Airbus models already feature electric braking and, flight control actuators. Replacing traditional...

    The days of easy oil and gas are over. The future of offshore oil recovery now lies in the ocean depths, down to 3,000 meters, and even beyond. But accessing ultra deep-water reserves necessitates advanced technologies designed for extreme conditions. This interactive infographic presents some of the latest...

    A new material developed by Australia’s Deakin University is being heralded as the most exciting advance in oil spill cleanup technology. The nanotechnology team at the Deakin Institute for Frontier Materials has been working on boron nitride nanomaterials for two decades and says the new material, which absorbs oil...

    From 3D laser mapping to identifying pipeline corrosion and checking well pads, refineries and chemical plants, the use of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) is on the rise, both onshore and off.   Drones get bad press. They’re often seen only as weapons of war or as a potential danger to aircraft. However, they are...
