According to its proponents, CMC technology is not only lighter than current metallic compo- nents but also can last longer at higher temperatures. More- over, special CMC designs are amenable to having acoustic treatments built into them that help make engines quieter, lighter and more effcient. The technology also could enable new, dramatically different engine designs in the future. The ecoDemonstrator test plane is employed by researchers in Boeing's development and test program of the same name, which focuses on improving environmental performance by bringing new technologies, materials and methods to imple- mentation faster than ever before. Effective October 2014, Delsen Testing Laboratories was offcially renamed Element Materials Technology Los Angeles LLC (Glendale, Calif.). Element is a global net- work of laboratories with experts who specialize in ma- terials testing, product qualifcation testing and failure analysis for the aerospace, oil & gas, transportation and industrial sectors. Its team of 1,540 scientists, engineers and technicians work in 44 facilities located throughout the U.S. and Europe.
