SpaceX launched Falcon Heavy on Tuesday, February 6 from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at NASA’s Kennedy SpaceCenter, Florida. It is currently the most powerful operational rocket in the world by a factor of two, with the ability to lift more than twice the payload of the next vehicle, at one-third the cost. Only the Saturn V moon rocket, last flown in 1973, delivered more payload to orbit.
“Three cores make up the first stage of Falcon Heavy. The side cores, or boosters, are connected to the center core at its base and at the vehicle’s interstage. With a total of 27 Merlin engines, Falcon Heavy’s three cores are capable of generating more than 5 million pounds of thrust.” -SpaceX

NASA Deep Space Network (DSN) antennas are using Temposonics absolute position sensors for tracking spacecraft activity. With more than 25 years of service, the DSN antennas are operating under open skies, being exposed to weather conditions 24/7. With no maintenance, calibration or mechanical wear, and accepting of a wide range of temperature, humidity and vibration influences, the Temposonics sensors have proven their quality and reliability over the years in this highly demanding application.
Optimum performance for industrial applications – this is what the Temposonics R-Series position sensors offer. Temposonics magnetostrictive technology is maximized with powerful electronics and double-shielded construction that assures immunity against interference, resulting in a robust design that produces the highest accuracy measurements.
