MIT Professor: Battery Fix Could Ground 787 Until 2014 - Forbes

domingo, 27 de enero de 2013

In a nutshell, Sadoway thinks that Boeing
needs to monitor the temperature and
cool each of the eight cells of the
787′s lithium-ion battery or switch to an
older battery technology that has a far
better safety record — nickel metal-
hydride (NiMH).
If Boeing opts to substitute NiMH for
lithium-ion, certification could result in
delays of up to a year — effectively
grounding the 787 until 2014

IN FOCUS: Chinese air force not yet a match for Japan's



Despite China's apparent numerical equality, experts feel it is in no position to impose and maintain aerial superiority - let alone aerial supremacy - over the disputed area.

"In short, Japan has a significant edge," says Oriana Mastro, a fellow at the Center for a New American Security think tank. "But the Chinese can create challenges for Japan to maintain aerial superiority."
