Piletest Uses The Fischer LP360 Connector In Pile Echo Tester To Test Pile Foundation Integrity
By Fischer Connectors

Piletest uses Fischer Freedom in its Pile Echo Tester. Fischer Connectors first produced a prototype using Piletest’s oiled cable to test mechanical constraints, then two prototypes to test electrical constraints. Piletest’s specific requirements were twofold: their design engineers needed a solution that could easily be integrated into their device and their end users needed PET to be rugged, IP68-sealed, fully cleanable, and ultra-easy to connect. As a result, Piletest chose the Fischer Freedom Series full connectivity solution.

The Importance Of GPS (GNSS) Derived Timing
Application Note | GPS Networking

GPS's main function may be to provide a means of deriving position, but the constellation of satellites also is an efficient time keeper. This application note details how GPS or GNSS timing is crucial for critical resource and key infrastructure (CIKR) sectors, and stresses maintaining reliable timing networks.

Spuma RS FR For Aerospace And Defense Applications

Spuma RS FR is the most flexible cable from the Spuma family and is ideal for use in many types of aerospace, defense, and satcom applications. The patented rotary swaging (RS) technology (low-loss strand) allows it to overcome the common tradeoff between flexibility and low attenuation.

Extending The Range Of A Low Power UAV Radio
Article | NuWaves Engineering

Low-power UAV radio systems, though designed for short distance communications, can be an inexpensive and reliable means of communications over greater distances — especially when the application is small UAS platforms.

Development Tactics And Techniques For Small Form Factor RF Signal Recorders
White Paper | By Chris Tojeira, Pentek, Inc.

This paper describes the engineering considerations and design techniques used to develop a small form factor rugged recorder that can handle the extremely high data rates associated with very wide bandwidth RF signal recording.

Highs And Lows Of Electronic Warfare
Article | By Mike Lee, dB Control

The next chapter of electronic warfare (EW) is all about precision and low visibility. Col. Mark Dotson said the Army’s new EW strategy is centered on, “using low power to affect the signal and to affect it in such a way that it may not even be detectable that you’re interfering with what they’re doing.”
