SpaceAge Control, Inc.
Company
Profile
SpaceAge Control, since 1968, designs and manufacture all-environment miniature and subminiature position transducers (displacement transducers, yo yo pots, string pots), off-the-shelf and custom.  Complementary to LVDTs, encoders, linear potentiometers, and related displacement sensors, these position transducers are noted for their small size, rugged performance, accuracy, flexible mounting, and easy installation.  Design and manufacture air data products (mini and micromini as well as large air data booms, pitot-static tubes), trailing cones, and trailing bombs for aerospace and ground vehicle applications.

Position Transducer
All environment miniature/subminiature displacement transducers (draw wire transducers, string pots, string encoders, cable extension transducers, yo yo pots).  Complementary to LVDTs, encoders, linear potentiometers, and related displacement sensors, these position transducers are noted for their small size, rugged performance, accuracy, flexible mounting, and easy installation.  Their inherent high-strength flexible cable allows linear, angular, rotary, 2D and 3D motion to be monitored.

Air Data Products
Air data booms and related products (http://www.spaceagecontrol.com/adpgal.htm) such as trailing bombs and trailing cones measure a range of parameters collectively known as "air data."  This is generally comprised of total pressure, static pressure, impact pressure, angle of attack, angle of sideslip, TAT, and OAT.  These products are designed and manufactured for flight test, vehicle test, racing operations, and production static-pitot probes.
