IC2, a pioneer in the development of precision MEMS sensors for aerospace applications, will be exhibiting and presenting a technical paper next week at AIAA SciTech 2018 in Kissimmee, FL. Billed as “the world’s largest event for aerospace research, development, and technology”, the technical program, running from Jan 8th-12th, is comprised of 11 concurrent technical conferences covering all the latest developments in aerospace technology and science. The exposition hall will feature over 50 companies and organizations and will be open from Jan. 9th-11th.
In booth 507 of the expo hall, IC2 will be featuring our line of DirectShear Sensing Systems, our latest innovation that offers a robust, high bandwidth, high resolution, silicon micromachined differential capacitive shear stress sensor for subsonic and transonic applications. This innovative design enables direct, non-intrusive, mean and fluctuating wall shear-stress measurements, ideal for precise skin-friction measurements in wind-tunnels. This sensor system greatly extends the spatial and temporal resolution capabilities over existing devices as well as the overall accuracy of skin friction measurement technology.
Dr. David Mills of IC2 will also be presenting a technical paper at the conference entitled, "Characterization of a Fully-Differential Capacitive Wall Shear Stress Sensor for Low-Speed Wind Tunnels". This paper describes our latest developments and experimental characterization of a fully-differential wall shear stress sensor system designed to be non-invasive to low-speed aerodynamic flows.
