ASTG Market Overview
Wilcoxon engineers have been responsible for many advances in piezoelectric accelerometers. Some of our key accomplishments and milestones are listed below:
1960 Wilcoxon Research, Inc. is founded by a group of entrepreneurial scientists from the US Navy’s David Taylor Research Center (now the Naval Surface Warfare Center)
1961 First piezoelectric accelerometer to incorporate an integrally-isolated base, eliminating the requirement for frequency-limiting adapters
1963 Identified and specified the effects of base strain sensitivity and incorporated integral strain filters in compression-type models, while expanding lines of bending- and shear-type models which are immune to base strain
1964 Delineated and specified the magnetic and acoustic sensitivity of piezoelectric vibration transducer
1976 First ultra low-noise detection accelerometers for underwater applications
1981 Developed piezoelectric accelerometers with integral PIEZOFET™ with low noise charge amplifiers
1983 First piezoelectric velocity sensor and piezoelectric ultra-quiet seismic accelerometer
1990 Industry's first displacement output accelerometer
1996 First ultra high sensitivity, low noise seismic accelerometer for nano g measurements
1999 Formation of Wilcoxon Labs for leading edge research and development
2004 Meggitt PLC acquired Wilcoxon Research, Inc.
2005 Developed a vibration transmitter series of products with the first customizable and field-programmable frequency response, powerful alarming capabilities, and digital communications
