Fredericks’ High Accuracy Electrolytic Tilt Sensor features thin-film technology, which reduces unit cost compared to traditional high-accuracy tilt sensors, and a hermetic seal design for long life in extreme conditions. The sensor provides inclination measurement with an angle range of ±30 arc minutes, less than 0.05 arc second resolution, and less than 0.5 arc second repeatability at null. Applications include aircraft avionics, machine tool leveling, and other position monitoring and measurement instrumentation requiring high-accuracy inclination measurement.

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.
Recently NASA researchers were officially cleared to begin formal feasibility studies on advanced Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) concepts under NASA’s Convergent Aeronautics Solutions (CAS) project. The investigations, three in total, are expected to take between 24 and 30 months to complete.
