Testing Todd: Confidence in Inspection E The job of third-party inspection is to provide an unbiased review of the customer require- ments versus the final product manufactured. This inspection can include both physical and functional criteria. Read on to understand the growing acceptance and requirement of third- party inspection in many areas of the manufac- turing industry, including military, aerospace, and medical. Next-gen NASA Instrument Advanced to Study the Atmospheres of Uranus and Neptune E Much has changed technologically since NA- SA's Galileo mission dropped a probe into Ju- piter's atmosphere to investigate, among other things, the heat engine driving the gas giant's atmospheric circulation. A NASA scientist and his team at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, are taking advantage of those advances to mature a smaller, more ca- pable net flux radiometer. DARPA Seeks to Make Scalable On-chip Security Pervasive E Program to focus on addressing the economic and technical challenges associated with in- corporating scalable defense mechanisms into chip designs. World's First Flight of Pioneering "Lighter Than Air" UAV E A new type of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) has made a successful maiden flight thanks in part to the expertise of engineers from the Uni- versity of Southampton.
