Cobham’s Digital Audio Control System (DACS) has been selected as forward-fit for the new Eurocopter EC175. Since 2008, DACS has been forward-fit on more medium and heavy helicopters than any other digital audio system in the world, including the EC135, 635, 225, 725, and 155. The EC175, a seven metric ton-category helicopter, will feature enhanced range and payload capabilities for 12-, 16-, and 18-passenger configurations when it enters service in late 2012.

A startup company has emerged from stealth mode with a new technology that promises to radically change the game for silicon solar photovoltaics (PV) manufacturing, by taking out almost all the starting material and up-front process costs. Progressing further toward the goal of "grid parity" means continually refining all steps along the solar supply chain, from manufacturing to balance-of-systems.
With more hydropower than it can use, Canada sells cheap, clean power to U.S. utilities and has been doing so for years. Now, large transmission projects across the Northeast and Midwest will mean more hydro will be used to meet utilities needs. The debate over the Keystone XL Pipeline has overshadowed news that a different sort of Canadian energy, hydropower, is poised has to take a much bigger role in the East Coast and Midwest markets.
