Kaman Precision Products highlights the availability of its KD-5100 differential measurement system, which provides resolution to a nanometer of positional change.

With its proven stable design, extremely small size and low power consumption, the KD-5100 is ideal for night vision systems, precision telescope positioning, fast steering mirrors for space-based and airborne applications, and image stabilization systems. 

Featuring a small package size – only 2 x 2.12 x 0.75 inches thick – the KD-5100 is a good choice for applications where space is a limiting factor. It is manufactured to MIL-H-38534, with MIL-SPEC components used throughout the electronics module wherever possible. 

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.
