    We’ve previously discussed the potential overhaul hydrogen fuel technology could bring to the aerospace market. This growing interest has, unsurprisingly, led to a boom in companies developing solutions for more sustainable aviation.

    To understand the market’s current position, let’s look at some of the major players currently working on hydrogen fuel solutions for aerospace.

    The introduction of nuclear power into maritime vessels was a major step. Although most of the industry’s focus is on submarines, nuclear reactors have benefitted ships too.

    Nuclear power’s history in the maritime sector isn’t a particularly long one, but the changes it’s brought about in this short period have been massive.

    In March 2023, Australia joined the UK and US in a trilateral agreement to design and implement the next generation of nuclear submarines. Named the SSN-AUKUS deal, it’ll see Australia and the UK’s current fleets of Astute and Collins class submarines replaced by the same model.

    This has the potential to be a ground-breaking agreement for creating the future of underwater defence. To understand more, let’s look at the deal in more detail and the UK’s role in it.

    The last two decades have seen a massive boom in the development and use of hydrogen fuel. As a viable alternative to our reliance on fossil fuels, hydrogen offers a (theoretically) limitless and environmentally-safe supply.

    Seen as a silver bullet for the Aerospace Industry to reach its net-zero initiatives target by 2050, Hydrogen Fuel is on the tips of everyone’s tongues right now. Find out why below.

    The Aviation Industry accounts for around 2% of global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. While this may seem like a small number, when you consider the massive scale of the aviation industry, it’s clear that we need to do something about those emissions if we want to keep global temperature rises under 2 degrees Celsius.

    This article looks at the two main options to reduce global aviation emissions and meet the net zero targets set by the industry by 2050.

    Now that commercial aerospace appears to be getting back to normal, we will hopefully see a gradual increase in the number of available jobs. Of course, it is a difficult time for any graduate workers entering employment, but especially so for graduate engineers.

    Ariane 6 is ArianeGroup’s new launch vehicle that offers significant improvements over its predecessor, Ariane 5. It follows the shift of other launcher companies towards flexible, modular payloads, which we will likely see become the norm in coming years.

    To recognise the flexibility Ariane 6 will provide, we must understand how it differs from the current launch technology.
