Inclinometer systems

  • 19-Apr-2010 11:14 EDT

Columbia Research Laboratories’ DIS-7001 and DIS-7012 inclinometer systems include a temperature-compensated force balance inclinometer and a power module with digital display. They combine superior force balance technology with a readout module that supplies linearization, eliminating the need for conversion from inclinometer sine output to degrees. Both systems are available with optional analog output via a BNC connector and a choice of input power and cable configurations. The devices are used to measure angle of inclination for applications such as platform leveling, pipeline leveling, gun sight control, borehole mapping, and other low-level seismic measurement applications.

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.
