Futek roaming on Mars

Futek Advanced Sensor Technology was commissioned by NASA to design and develop two cryogenic sensors to operate aboard the Curiosity Rover.

With a donut load cell directly operating within Curiosity's drilling arm, it is responsible to monitor the drill bit's force as it pierces into Martian soil.

Futek's secondary sensor is a multi-axial load and torque sensor responsible for the manoeuvres of the robotic drilling arm itself.

Futek is an ISO9001-2008 accredited, AS9100 compliant, ANSI-Z540 certified, and ISO 17025 A2LA approved design and manufacturing house.
