Marathon MR1F fiber-optic ratio thermometer measures temperature in hot, hostile en-vironments; in high electromagnetic fields; and in other difficult applica-tions where the line of sight to the target may be obscured. The MR1F consists of a small, rugged optical head; a field-replaceable, fiber-optic cable; and a separate electronics enclosure with built-in user interface. Proprietary signal processing electronics support advanced features such as remote sensor set-up, real-time display of target temperature, and field-calibration software.

Researchers have been working on a number of alternative chemistries to lithium-ion for next-gen batteries, silicon-air among them. However, while the technology has been viewed as promising and cost-effective, to date researchers haven’t managed to develop a battery of this chemistry with a viable running time -- until now.
Norway-based additive manufacturing company Norsk Titanium is building what it says is the first industrial-scale 3D printing plant in the world for making aerospace-grade metal components. The New York state plant will produce 400 metric tons each year of aerospace-grade, structural titanium parts.
