A case in point in PS Engineering... a little company that decided it could specialize in one aspect of avionics and try to be th best in the field... and to many, that's just what they've done.

To those of us who have worked in or around the airshow industry
for many years, this story comes as a bit of a shock -- a sad
one. One of the favorite figures in an elder airshow age, the man

A coordinate used by astronomers to locate stars and other
celestial objects in the sky. Right ascension is comparable to
longitude, but it is measured in hours, minutes, and seconds
because the entire sky appears to pass overhead over a period of 24
hours. The zero hour corresponds to the apparent location of the
Sun with respect to the stars on the day of the vernal (spring)
equinox (approximately March 21).
Aero-Linx: Mars Exploration
NASA's twin robot geologists, the Mars Exploration Rovers,
launched toward Mars on June 10 and July 7, 2003, in search of
answers about the history of water on Mars. They landed on Mars
