Kaman KD-5100 provides resolution to a nanometer.
The Measuring Division of Kaman Precision Products, Inc. unveiled its KD-5100 differential measurement system, which provides resolution to a nanometer of positional change. Featuring a package size of 2 x 2.12 x 0.75 inches thick, the sensor system is manufactured to MIL-H-38534, with MIL-SPEC components used throughout wherever possible. Mean time between failures is better than 238,000 hours in a space flight environment and 55,000 hours in a tactical environment. Kaman also offers the DIT-5200, a commercial version of the KD-5100 for applications where mil-spec requirements, size, weight and power consumption are not critical.
