Subminiature position sensors

  • 27-Dec-2013 09:47 EST

Macro Sensors CD series of subminiature LVDT position sensors features a lightweight, low-mass core, compact 0.375 in diameter, and accuracy necessary for many aerospace applications with tight space and weight restrictions. Ideal for high-response dynamic measurement such as valve position, the devices are used in various pneumatic butterfly valve applications (shut-off valve, fan air valve, wing anti-ice valves) on business jet applications. These AC-operated linear displacement sensors also provide reliable displacement measurement for monitoring fuel/oil level and flight surfaces of airplanes as well as load leveling of artillery platforms and rudder positions of aircraft carriers, tankers, ships, submarines, and UAVs.

The fusing of emerging technologies from the aerospace materials sector and biological sciences are now, for the first time, heading toward the prospect of growing parts, systems, and, ultimately, perhaps whole aircraft.
NRL scientists have demonstrated metallic spin filtering at room temperature using ferromagnet-graphene-ferromagnet thin film junction devices.
Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
Researchers from the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory's Optical Sciences Division and Material Science Division have detected acoustic emissions from cracks in riveted lap joints using a distributed feedback fiber laser-acoustic emission sensor.
