A prototype passenger spaceship developed by privately owned Space Exploration Technologies arrived in Florida on Sunday for launch on a practice cargo run to the International Space Station, officials said on Monday.
China said on Wednesday it will launch within weeks its first spacecraft capable of docking with a module it put into orbit last month, in what will mark a crucial test of its growing space program.
POSITAL’s ACCELENS (ACS) inclinometers are now available in two major product lines. The first of these is designed primarily for industrial environments and features a tough fiber-reinforced PBT plastic housings and fully-encapsulated electronic components. These devices can
General Atomics Aeronautical Systems today provided an update on recent accomplishments of its U.S. Army UAS and radar programs. At the Army’s Manned-Unmanned Systems Integration Capability (MUSIC) exercise held September 16 at Dugway Proving Grounds in Utah...
Veteran U.S. astronaut Daniel Burbank said on Monday he was eager to fly Russia's Soyuz spacecraft to the International Space Station, likening it to a sports car and NASA's space shuttle to a big truck.
Custom MMIC Design Services was awarded a 2011 Army Achievement Award in recognition of its innovative work on high efficiency, low power, low noise MMIC amplifiers for SATCOM applications.
For the first time, observations coordinated by ESA's space hazards team have found an asteroid that comes close enough to Earth to pose an impact threat. The space rock was found by amateur astronomers, highlighting the value of 'crowd-sourcing' to science and planetary defence.
Pieces of a retired German satellite hurtling toward the atmosphere may crash to earth this weekend, the German Aerospace Center said Thursday.
A Russian Soyuz rocket will blast off from French Guiana on Thursday in a new East-West partnership designed to redraw commercial competition in space.
Schaefer announced a series of efficient, pure sine wave inverters that provide up to 3000 VA of power. The PRP-3000 Series has versions that meet industrial (EN60950) or rail (EN50155) standards. Standard input voltages of
DATEL announced the DAC-12100 Series of low power 12-bit current output digital to analog converters that have TTL/CMOS compatible inputs. With a 100 MHz conversion rate, these ultra-high speed devices suit speed critical applications such as
Sofradir announces today that it has been awarded a multi-million Euro contract to manufacture Infrared (IR) detectors for the engineering and flight model phases for the MUSIS/CSO next generation Earth observation military satellites.
Crane Aerospace & Electronics Power Solutions was selected by Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. to supply its Transformer Rectifier Units (TRU) on the Gulfstream G650. The five 250A TRUs on each G650 provide DC bus power throughout the aircraft. The TRU is common across the Gulfstream fleet of both the existing G450 & G550 and the new G650 aircraft. This commonality across the fleet will help
Newly released images taken by ESA’s Mars Express show an unusual accumulation of young craters in the large outflow channel called Ares Vallis. Older craters have been reduced to ghostly outlines by the scouring effects of ancient water.
Venture capitalist Alan Walton has trekked to the North Pole, climbed Mount Kilimanjaro and skydived over Mount Everest. A hop into space to enjoy a few minutes of weightlessness would have been the ultimate adventure.
Curtiss-Wright Controls Electronic Systems announced a rugged Power and Control Module (PCM) board that provides high level control and bridging to a system host via Ethernet (IEEE 802.3), USB, RS-232 and CANbus. This rugged
Standex Electronics introduced a full lineup of planar transformers which are asserted to deliver high-performance from compact, low-profile designs. The planar transformers provide low leakage inductance and repeatable capacitance. Available in
Dytran Instruments has introduced the 7503A Series, a family of high precision triaxial MEMS DC accelerometers designed for use in both commercial and military applications. The accelerometers combine a
ESA’s Venus Express spacecraft has discovered an ozone layer high in the atmosphere of Venus. Comparing its properties with those of the equivalent layers on Earth and Mars will help astronomers refine their searches for life on other planets.
API Technologies' Spectrum Control product line announces its new composite connector series. These composite connectors feature shells fabricated from high grade thermoplastic. Designed to
GreenPeak Technologies announced that its radio communication controller chip was assessed by the European Space Center, ESA/ESTEC, for use in aerospace applications and was endorsed for its superior RF performance, ultra-low power requirement and excellent interference robustness.
