It's one of the few subjects that even the most non-scientific minds find absolutely fascinating. It's a topic capable of transcending our own imagination. And it's becoming quite a celebrity in its own right. But what are we referring to? Well, outer space of course.
Whether it's the success of landing a rover on Mars, a YouTube video of how-to-wash-your- hair on the International Space Station, or satellite images of your house via Google Maps, it's undeniable that the masses find news pertaining to "space" incredibly appealing. And so does the test and measurement industry. Ground-based and flight qualified applications are among the most intricate in attention to detail, but undoubtedly the most engaging in terms of mission requirements and stakes. Take, for instance, the Mars Rover Curiosity. The stakes were huge! The line between success and failure was as thin as paper. And yet, the monumental success not only propagated NASA back into action, but made aeronautical science a celebrity.
In fact, it's aerospace applications like the rover expedition that have quality assurance and test engineers propelling toward FUTEK for inventive custom solutions.
And we're happy to help! Why? Because aerospace applications are like MasterCard commercials. FUTEK brings an engineering experience of 100+ years; we dedicated ourselves to the project for 1000+ hours; but being able to share with the world that we were involved in the Mars Rover Curiosity mission is priceless.
The reward in the test and measurement industry is knowing that we helped bring success to a mission, project, and/or product that someone full-heartedly believes in. To be involved in that process is priceless (aerospace or any other industry). And with that we say, in the words of Buzz Lightyear, that FUTEK is ready to go "to infinity and beyond" in search of the next big adventure!
