Proposed increases in funds for scientific R&D and a greater emphasis on STEM education in the 2014 budget proposal announced by the White House this week reflect the President's commitment to science and engineering, SPIE leaders said. They also expressed concern for lower amounts in some budgets, stressing the role photonics R&D plays in driving the economy.

New Extreme Low Power, RTCA-compliant SBC from Aitech Significantly Reduces Avionics System Development Costs
Low Power, PowerPC-based board features high performance, rugged, compact design
ABB introduces the foundation for an all-compatible drive portfolio: the ACS880 model features a whole new platform of drive technology
Learn it once, then use what you know for all drives to come: ABB's new low voltage, industrial AC drive portfolio is built on a common architecture, specifically designed to simplify operation, optimize energy efficiency, and maximize output. This new architecture enables the drives to control virtually any type of AC motor, and interface across all major fieldbus protocols, as well as remote monitoring solutions. Compatibility is key, with users enjoying a host of functions that make selection, installation, set up and maintenance easy; safety features are integrated.
After that it gets a little tricky.
The mechanics of dragonfly flight are unique: dragonflies can manoeuvre in all directions, glide without having to beat their wings and hover in the air.
Overall the unmanned systems industry is healthy and growing, even in this fiscal climate. Commercial applications of unmanned systems in mining, agriculture, and health care continues to grow, as the robustness and maturity of unmanned systems increases.
Rising wages and the intricate management of the labour force have created a challenging work environment for a Singapore-based company, Sky Engineering. For a long time, this precision engineering company tried to reduce their production costs. They finally succeeded with the implementation of Universal Robots in one of their CNC machines. The UR robot was easy to integrate and the company now has the luxury of having one man tending to two CNC machines at any one time - something previously impossible to achieve when all tasks relied heavily on manual labour.

Industrial Robotics - Featured Product
IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
