Sensor advancement is driving nearly every market around the globe. Global leaders are just learning that they crave more data and faster data. We have always needed faster data capture to support high Mach flight operations. We are constantly pushing the envelope for response rate and usability under incredibly harsh conditions.

Novel sensors for high temperature and high pressure environments.

High Frequency Pressure Sensors
High Frequency Pressure Sensors

Our high common mode P and DP sensors are design for high pressure environments up to 20kpsi with an ability to measure DP ranges as low as 5 psi while operating up to 300°C.

High Frequency Combustion Sensors

Ash, Particulate & Ablation Sensors

Our novel micro-Plasma Particle Measurement Sensor (µPPMS) system leverages micro-plasma discharges to process particles within the probe’s sensing volume and generate spectral emissions along with electro-optical responses to temporal plasma property variations.

Multiphase Flow Sensors

A multi-resonator, multi-aperture receiver, ultrasound focusing sensor that will non-invasively probe the multi-phase flow characteristics of solid, liquid and gas mixtures. Acoustic array sensing has enabled the determination of ablative surface property changes.
