aviation. The highly-advanced jet fighter and development program was cancelled in 1959 by the government of the day, causing more than 30,000 employees and subcontractors to lose their jobs. Many Avro engineers went on to work at Lockheed, Boeing and NASA, and others to Britain to work in the aerospace industry there. This is often cited as an example of Canadian “brain drain”.   Additionally, when the program was cancelled, all materials related to the Avro Arrow were ordered destroyed, including six completed jet fighters, production tooling and all development related materials

military specification wire and specialty electrical components, which were designed by South Bay. These components included electrical conductors for power distribution, signal pairs for voice and data transmission and coaxes for video. Many of these early cables were used by the U.S. Military and aerospace industry. Some of these early programs included the ground support cables for the Atlas silos, Americas’ first intercontinental ballistic missile; the second generation of the Minuteman program’s intercontinental ballistic missiles and Surveyor, the United States’ first robotic spacecraft

From Tiny Electrical Impulses Grows a $2.6B Giant MOOG

the corporate giant Moog Inc. is today. Bill Moog, along with his brother Arthur and Lou Geyer, formed the Moog Valve Company, and their first four servovalves were sold to Bendix Aviation. That order was followed by larger orders from Boeing and Convair. Moog had made a significant move into the aerospace industry and has never looked back. Today, Moog Inc. employees 8,000 people around the world and has revenues of $2.6B. The Moog vision has been to diversify and although the main focus of the company has been the aerospace industry serving the commercial aircraft industry, military and defense and

Authority (ISA) established under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. While harvesting polymetallic nodules from the ocean floor at depths of several kilometers has previously been considered uneconomic, the development of new technologies for the offshore oil industry and aerospace industry over the past decade has changed this dynamic. Nodules can be brought to the surface using a combination of remotely operated or autonomous underwater vehicles, pumps and riser pipes.

Siemens Subsea Products Adopts All-Electric Tube Bending

, making this an even more cost-effective investment.” Steve Haddrell of Unison adds, “This order from Siemens Subsea Products demonstrates a growing awareness of the benefits of all-electric tube bending. The traditional market for high-performance machines of this type is in the aerospace industry, where precision bending of exotic alloy materials is a common requirement. But companies serving the offshore oil and gas industries also face similar demands, as their products are used in ever more hostile environments.”
