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.

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.
