Accelerometers and pressure sensors for measurement in aerospace propulsion systems require special consideration during the design and manufacturing processes. Typical applications for high temperature aerospace propulsion sensors include measurements on gas turbine engines, rocket motors and automotive exhaust systems. The same sensor might be required to withstand radiation inside a nuclear power plant or a space vehicle, and these environments present a multitude of measurement challenges.

Optimization of materials and construction techniques are required to enhance high-temperature performance, and to allow operation in the presence of gamma and neutron radiation without degradation while providing high levels of accuracy, stability and reliability. Therefore, sensors intended for extreme environments require special consideration during the design and manufacturing process. During this webinar, we will discuss the design and selection criteria for new high temperature accelerometers and pressure sensors and their benefits.
