Singer will reveal at the "Hi-Tech Technologies 2002" exhibition, a blue-white inclinometer for space rocket launchers

The inclinometer allows the measurement of an absolute angle relative to the horizon with an accuracy better than 0.002 degrees, for the entire life of the device, without the need for calibrations, resets, or any other external intervention.

Transporting a rocket weighing hundreds of tons, designed to fly the space shuttles into the atmosphere and put them into orbit around the Earth, is not a simple task. The American space agency, NASA, uses 48-wheel trucks for this purpose. The transportation facility is required to monitor and correct the missile's inclination with the highest precision, under varying temperature conditions, vibrations, mechanical shocks, and more.

The "Singer Instrumentation and Control" company, from Tirat HaCarmel, will present, as part of the "Hi-Tech Technologies 2002" exhibition (October 3-2, 2002), an innovative inclination meter, the fruit of Israeli development, for the rocket launchers of the space shuttles. According to Yuval Singer, CEO and owner of "Singer Instruments and Controls", the company is currently conducting negotiations to supply highly accurate inclination meters to NASA. According to him, the engineering staff at NASA estimated that the Israeli development is the only one capable of meeting the required accuracy requirements. At this stage, experiments are carried out to confirm the first models. The inclinometer allows the measurement of an absolute angle relative to the horizon with an accuracy better than 0.002 degrees, for the entire life of the device, without the need for calibrations, resets, or any other external intervention.

Patent applications have been submitted for the product, and it will be marketed for various military and civilian applications, such as leveling antennas in relation to the horizon, installing machines that are sensitive to the direction of the gravity vector, mobile installations that are required to be placed at specified angles, and more. Singer Instrumentation and Control develops and manufactures sensors for measuring physical quantities such as: position, speed, inclination, acceleration, force, pressure and more. Also planning and manufacturing assemblies that include sensing, propulsion, control, data collection and computer embedded systems.

The "Hi-Tech Technologies" exhibition will be held on October 3-2, 2002, at the Tel Aviv Fairs and Congress Center. The exhibition, organized by "Kens", "Merkza Hareidim" and "Technologies Group" and under the auspices of the Ministry of Taxation, is expected to be the largest held in Israel so far in this field. The exhibition will deal with a wide variety of topics ranging from electronic components, measuring equipment, design and development tools, control and automation, computing, peripheral equipment, and data communication, to packaging and furnishing with modern technologies.
