Blockchain Technology

Is Blockchain Technology about to Revolutionize Engineering?

The blockchain is one of today’s most polarizing technological innovations. Basically, it is an immutable public record designed to enable parties who don’t necessarily trust each other to safely interact and transact without having to give up control to or pay rents to a third-party such as a traditional bank, social network or online marketplace. The world was introduced to blockchain technology by the success of the Bitcoin cryptocurrency, which uses the blockchain to enable the currency to be transferred between parties without an intermediary.

How to Handle 300 Miles of Electrical Wiring

Aircraft electrical design projects tend to be very large and extremely complex. The challenges associated with managing the sheer number of wires (required for avionics systems, engines, sensors, in-flight-entertainment etc.) is frequently compounded by the distances some signals must travel within the airframe, passing through several harnesses on route. For example, an Airbus A380 – with its wingspan of almost 80m and a nose-to-tail length of almost 73m – allegedly has around 480km (300 miles) of wiring.
