IC² to Exhibit and Present at AIAA SciTech 2019

Posted by Steve Horowitz on Oct 4, 2018 1:29:26 PM

IC², a pioneer in the development of precision MEMS sensors for aerospace applications, will be exhibiting and presenting a technical paper at AIAA SciTech 2019 in San Diego, CA.  Billed as “the world’s largest event for aerospace research, development, and technology”, the technical program, running from Jan 7th-11th, 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. 8th-10th.

DS_logo_linkedInIn booth 517 of the expo hall, IC² will be featuring the latest generation of DirectShear Sensors that measure shear stress directly, providing a robust, high bandwidth, high resolution measurement.  DirectShear employs silicon-micromachined, differential capacitive, shear stress sensing technology and is suitable for both 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, "Development of a Differential Optical Wall Shear Stress Sensor for High-Temperature Applications". This paper describes our latest developments of a wall shear stress sensor system utilizing differential optical transduction and designed to be non-invasive in high-temperature, harsh environment applications.
