The Measuring Division of Kaman Precision Products, highlights the availability of its KD-5100+ high reliability differential displacement measurement system, with nanometre resolution.

With its stable design, extremely small size, and low power consumption, the KD-5100+ is ideal for laser communications satellites and ground stations, image stabilisation systems, and directed energy systems for ground, shipboard and airborne applications.

The KD-5100+ is an upgraded, higher reliability version of Kaman’s proven KD-5100 measuring system and utilises the identical proprietary hybrid microcircuit. The KD-5100+ incorporates upgrades to the circuit layout, ground connections, and sensor connectors, and adds higher reliability diodes and capacitors.

Featuring a small package size – only 2 x 2.12 x 0.75" thick – the KD-5100+ meets SWaP-C requirements. It is manufactured to Mil-PRF-38534 Class H, with MIL-SPEC components used throughout the electronics. The KD-5100+ features a mean time between failures exceeding 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 less critical.

The KD-5100+ team of experts has a combined total of more than 100 years of application, design and engineering experience. Focused on solving customers’ measurement problems, the team is backed by an established aerospace company. The Measuring Division of Kaman Precision Products follows rigorous aerospace quality systems and is certified to AS9100 and ISO 9001 while featuring a class 100 clean room.
