What’s Happening

In-Flight Sensor Solutions For Aerospace Applications

Advanced sensors are being implemented to replace more traditional technologies within aerospace applications. Andy Royal discusses how HITEC supports customers to deliver advanced sensor solutions for In-Flight applications.

The Benefit of Custom-Made Force Sensors in the Medical Industry

The function of many drug-delivery, therapeutic, and medical device systems often relies on a change in force. Learn about how this change can be initiated by either the patient or can be automatically changed by the device itself.

The Sensors Used In Fly-By-Wire And All-Electric Aircraft

A growing interest in finding ways either to replace heavily polluting hydrocarbon-based fuels or to increase their efficiency.
