HUD (Head-Up Display) was created in an effort to make flying simpler and safer. The new HUD is a smart in-flight display system that includes a projection unit, clear glass display combiner, and a display processer unit, allowing pilots to see critical flight data in the same line of sight as outside terrain. UEI helped simplify and improve the prototyping and production of the HUD utilizing UEI COTS (Commercial Off The Shelf) hardware and software. Learn more here.
SpaceX was founded in 2002 by Tesla’s Elon Musk with the end goal of reducing space transportation costs enough to colonize Mars. In2008, it became the first successful private space launch operator, and in May 2020, it successfully flew humans to the International SpaceStation on the SpaceX Dragon 2. Most recently, SpaceX has beendeveloping a spacecraft for use in crewed interplanetary spaceflight.With the increasing complexity of each new spacecraft, searching for the right monitoring and control system solution for their ground supportequipment was critical to ushering in more successful launches. See how UEI and SpaceX teamed up to
NASA’s VMS (Vertical Motion Simulator) provides real-time piloted simulation and realistic sensory cues through six ICAB (Interchangeable Cabin) systems that can be modified to simulate any vehicle, including those still in the design stage, which makes it an invaluable tool for the research and development of new flight vehicles. UEI hardware helps the VMS produce real-time, highly synchronized, high-fidelity aerospace flight simulations. Learn more here.
When Blue Origin, a space exploration company founded and privately funded by Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, needed to consolidate custom and COTS (Commercial Off The Shelf) DAQ and control hardware into one platform they looked to UEI for their solution. UEI's standardized hardware solutions helped Blue Origin save time, minimize maintenance, accelerate development, and compete in the space race. Learn more here.
As part of a recent project by a U.S. Navy lab to study ice cracking events in the Arctic circle, the Wood Hole Oceanography Institution (WHOI) researchers developed a cabled DAQ system that would collect seismo-acoustic measurements and help better understand sea ice strength and behavior. WHOI researchers needed hardware that could withstand Arctic temperatures and reliably collect data. UEI equipped WHOI’s system with the hardware it needs to withstand arctic conditions and collect key ice cracking data, and ensure the project’s success. Learn more here.
Framatome is a French nuclear reactor developer largely owned by the French state. When Framatome’s Safety I&C (Instrumentation and Controls) system maintenance and testing tools, which ensured the platform’s integrity and reliability, began to encounter obsolescence challenges, Framatome knew it was time for an upgrade. UEI equipped Framatome's I&C maintenance system with the I/O hardware it needed to perform accurate, modern, and robust systems testing; all of which was protected from any future product obsolescence issues with our long-term 10-year availability guarantee.

Nasa's SAFFIRE program was designed to study large flame growth and material flammability limits in microgravity, which will be essential to the design and construction of future spacecraft and the development of informed protocols for dealing with fire emergencies in space. UEI's compact and rugged data acquisition hardware and I/O handled the rigors of an extreme environment and ensured the relay of crucial data back to NASA's scientists. Learn more here.
Rolls-Royce makes luxury automobiles, diesel engines, and jet engines. Mostrecently, it completed the construction of Testbed 80, a massive testbedstructure designed to support a new generation of efficient and sustainableengines and propulsion systems. The data systems inside Testbed 80 aremore capable and complex than any of Rolls-Royce’s existing testbeds andhave the capacity to collect and store more than 10,000 parameters of datafrom an intricate lattice of sensors. UEI’s standardized hardware helped Rolls-Royce develop a reliable and accurate testbed measurement system. Learn more here.
