The Eurofighter IPA 8 (Instrumented Production Aircraft 8) test aircraft has achieved an important production milestone at Cassidian in Manching: with the mounting of the right wing, the connection between the cockpit, vertical tail unit and wings with the fuselage has been completed.
M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (M/A-COM), a supplier of high performance analog semiconductor solutions, introduced a new limiter diode designed for passive limiter control circuits in L- and S-Band applications.
AMETEK Programmable Power, the global leader in programmable AC and DC power test solutions, announces that its ReFlex Power™ (RFP) System is now qualified for use in standard Department of Defense (DoD) Automated Test Systems (ATS) across all major military branches.
ON Semiconductor has introduced a new family of tunable RF components (TRFC) that address the design challenges faced by engineers developing the latest generation smartphones. The new devices optimally combine tuning range, RF quality factor (Q) and frequency operation, providing a superior solution to existing fixed approaches.
Lake Shore announces a new continuously variable temperature (CVT) probe, developed in collaboration with TOYO Corp., that allows for true, continuous unattended wafer probing of a material sample across a range of temperatures. The probes, when used in any Lake Shore probe station, significantly improve reliability of sample measurement.
API Technologies Corp. announced its new family of hermetically sealed circular connectors for aerospace applications with high differential pressure. These connectors, from API's Spectrum Control line of products, meet MIL-DTL-38999 fine leak requirements and are ideal for aerospace engine control, hydraulic, and caustic environments where harsh conditions could exist.
In early fall C4i was called upon to assist a high altitude search and rescue training facility located in the mountains of eastern California. The base dispatch center was having difficulty communicating across a high peak to personnel on the other side, as well as with aircraft. The field team operated in a very rugged, remote area and needed a way to communicate with members who worked at the main buildings, however the groups were separated by a mountain range 3 miles (5 km) away.
