Tadiran's TLM family of Military Grade Batteries is developed specifically for military and aerospace applications. These rugged, high-energy lithium metal oxide batteries feature an open circuit voltage of 4V, with a discharge capacity of 500 mAh (20 mA at 2.8V RT), capable of handling 5A continuous pulses and 15A maximum high-current pulses. TLM Military Grade Batteries are constructed with a carbon-based anode, multi metal oxide cathode, organic electrolyte and shut-down separator for enhanced safety. They also feature low self-discharge and a wide operating temperature range of -40 to 85C. These batteries comply with MIL-STD 810G specifications for vibration, shock, temperature shock, salt fog, altitude, acceleration (50,000 gn) and spinning (30,000 rpm), and conform to UN 1642 and IEC 60086 standards for crush, impact, nail penetration, heat, over-charge and short circuit.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
Airbus Defence and Space has 3D printed titanium brackets for communications satellites. The redesigned, one-piece 3D-printed brackets have better thermal resistance than conventionally manufactured parts, can be produced faster, cost 20% less, and save about 1 kg of weight per satellite.
A group of researchers at the Seoul National University have discovered a way to take material from cigarette butts and turn it into a carbon-based material that’s ideal for storing energy and creating a powerful supercapacitor.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
