Differential Measurement System Boasts Nanometer Resolution

The Measuring Division of Kaman Precision Products unveils its KD-5100 differential measurement system, which provides resolution to a nanometer of positional change. The KD-5100 is suitable for night vision systems, precision telescope positioning, fast steering mirrors, and image stabilization systems.


Featuring a package size of 2 in. x 2.12 in. x 0.75 in. thick, the system is manufactured to MIL-H-38534, with MIL-SPEC components. The KD-5100 features rugged construction, with a mean time between failures of better than 238,000 hours in a space flight environment and 55,000 hours in a tactical environment. Kaman also offers the DIT-5200, a commercial version of the KD-5100 for applications where mil-spec requirements, size, weight and power consumption are not critical.
