Sterling Instrument has a long, well-established history of supplying custom gears and other drive components of the highest quality to the aerospace industry. All applications in aerospace demand the very strictest of regulations, mainly when peoples' lives are directly dependent on it. This is especially true in commercial aircrafts, which, according to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics, transport over a million passengers a day within the United States alone. Aircraft companies that engineer these complex machines do so knowing that they are responsible for all those people, and that they face serious charges if anything goes wrong. The fact that they trust Sterling Instrument to make parts for their aircrafts proves that our expert staff and state-of-the-art machinery produce parts of unparalleled quality.
Satellites are another facet of the aerospace industry that are practically an industry all their own, due to the huge array of applications. Satellites are comprised of two main components: the antenna and the power source. Sterling Instrument is responsible for making the gear assemblies that position the antenna. The performance demands for these assemblies include withstanding the harsh environment of space, as well as maintaining the precision required to keep a relatively fragile piece of machinery running smoothly. Satellites are used for all kinds of information gathering and distribution today, including weather mapping, military intelligence, scientific missions, GPS,television, and radio and phone signals. Sterling Instrument plays a crucial role in keeping all that information flowing in a demanding modern world.
