GE Aviation Wins Avionics and Power Systems for Gulfstream's G500/G600
Oct 20 14
GE Aviation is supplying the data concentration and network, the advanced power management system and the advanced health management system to Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation for the G500/G600 business jet aircraft. The power management system for the G500/G600 will build on the G650 secondary power system including GE's modular power tile technology, while adding primary power distribution, reducing wiring and utility function controllers. The GE integration of the power system provides a flexible composition and significantly reduces integration risk. Aircraft manufacturers achieve more control through a configurable software application. The data concentration and network for the G500/G600 builds on GE's core computing system from the Boeing 787 and is a new offering for business jets. The system provides a highly configurable integrated data network (analog, digital via multiple communication protocols) for the aircraft and offers a way to seamlessly connect avionics and utility functions. Using GE's sophisticated tool suite, the data concentration and network system can be rapidly re-configured, enabling efficient integration and significantly reducing cost of change over the life of the airplane. The advanced health management system builds on GE's technology that powers Gulfstream's PlaneConnectHTM(TM) (Health & Trend Monitoring) system on the G650. The system will include enhanced compute monitoring of more than 9,000 parameters with real-time communications through satellite, Wi-Fi transmission and 3G/cellular.

GE Aviation Invests $50 Million in 3-D Printing Plant
Aug 4 14
GE Aviation announced that it is investing $50 million to bring 3-D printing to its manufacturing plant in Auburn, Ala. The company plans on using high volume 3-D printing to mass produce components for its jet engines. The $50 million will upgrade its existing 300,000-square-foot facility in Auburn. Equipment installation will begin in late 2014 and GE Aviation expects to begin production in 2015. The facility could have as many as 10 printing machines by the end of 2015, with the potential of eventually having more than 50 machines occupy a third of the facility.
