Aerospace, Defense and Government Applications

Robust, low-power motion systems with extreme precision enable smaller, high-performance systems for aerospace and defense

New Scale helps companies transform their large, expensive, complicated-to-use systems into handheld and portable devices that bring the same power and performance to the field. Our customers use our tiny motion modules to adjust micro optics or mechanical components within their handheld, portable and mobile systems.  The modules have micrometer precision, work on battery power, perform at any orientation and resist shock, vibration and temperature extremes.   


Our tiny autofocus systems enable smaller, more accurate cameras for aerospace, defense and government applications.  Our smart actuators provide vibration stabilization. Systems include:


Our focus modules and smart actuators and are used in weapon sights and automated targeting systems, for example in dynamic pointing of a laser to compensate for handshake or vibration.

Optical tuning and alignment 

Our microstages and smart actuators move or rotate filters, align samples and light sources, provide point-to-point beam steering and position optical fibers in handheld analytical systems. Applications include:

Motion and positioning

Our micro smart actuators and microstages move mechanical components with high precision, using battery power. They are small and lightweight for mobile, airborne and handheld systems. Applications include:



M3 micro mechatronic modules are:
