Series 210-220 ac LVDTs sense linear displacement in ranges from 0.5 inch to 60 inches. The transducers optimize great linearity, short package length, and low temperature coefficients. When used with the signal conditioning module, the units provide dc voltage operation with up to 1,000 Hz frequency response. High temperature, high pressure, and reduced diameter versions are available.
On April 15, 2010, President Barack Obama gave a major speech at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, announcing that the US would send astronauts to Mars by the mid-2030s. But in order to do so, NASA would first need to ramp up its capabilities through missions directed toward "a series of increasingly demanding targets," i.e. asteroids.
