To say that HRL Laboratories has made significant contributions to cutting-edge science and technology would be quite an understatement. Known today by its legal corporate title HRL Laboratories LLC, the storied company traces its roots back to the legendary Howard Hughes. Hughes set the standard for HRL's innovative mission, advising his contemporaries to "Do the impossible. Because almost everyone has told me my ideas are merely fantasy."
RF engineers would love to get their hands on an ideal crystal oscillator, one which transmits at the designated frequency for the life of the device without any deviation under all conditions. Unfortunately, that ideal circuit world is a mathematical fantasy. There are many factors that contribute to oscillator stability and frequency drift issues. To prevent these problems as much as possible, having a firm understanding of frequency stability will help give you the tools to keep your applications performing optimally. But there's another problem...
Raytheon's Next Generation Jammer (NGJ) has been under development now since 2013. In 2016 the US Navy awarded the company a 1 billion dollar engineering and manufacturing development contract for the NGJ system slated to replace the ALQ-99 legacy systems used in the EA-18G electronic attack aircraft.
Poor manufacturing environments can significantly reduce the performance quality of a pressure transducer. A failing pressure transducer will lead to problems with sensors and will provide inaccurate readings (or none at all).
A faulty pressure transducer not only can cause frustration and wasted time, but can also lead to unnecessary costs.
To prevent pressure transducer problems or failure from happening in the first place, let's take a look at 7 pressure transducer troubleshooting methods to keep your transducers & sensors working great!
There is an old pearl of wisdom which claims that necessity is the mother of invention and nowhere is that truer than in the history of warfare, and especially electronic warfare. New military technology is always followed by innovative countermeasures developed specifically to defend against the new threat. In the case of electronic warfare, defensive measures quickly evolved into new offensive and intelligence gathering technologies.

Drones...Drones...Drones... It's almost like everywhere you go these days you can't help but be sucked into "drone chat".
Back in 2016, we wrote one of our most popular posts covering 12 popular Software Defined Radios or SDRs. While the previous post still holds some extremely valuable information, a lot has changed in 2 years... especially the technology related to SDRs. So we thought it was time for an update.
We've been doing a lot of talk about the new space movement and the newest LEO constellation innovations. It's about time that we bring to your attention that LEO constellatioins aren't the only innovation when it comes to the new space (or space 2.0) movement. As technology and payloads of satellites continue to skyrocket (ha!), so does our ability to efficiently explore the deep, dark depths of outer space.
