Northrop Grumman is the second largest defense contractor in America, designing and producing a wide variety of technologies ranging from aircraft to sensors. The clinic team performed a proof-of-concept study using microelectrical mechanical systems (MEMS) technology to produce a vibrating beam angular rate sensor based on the Coriolis force. Experimental and analytical results were reported.
