Mide's Slam Stick X Featured in DOD RIF Report
Every year the DoD RAPID INNOVATION PROGRAM reports to the Committiie on Armed Services, US Senate. Mide's Slam Stick X is featured as an successful example of transitioning a technology for Military users. The article appears on page 21 of the report - it states the following...

"Wireless Vibration Recorder: This Navy project provides a compact and lightweight measurement device that can acquire data quickly and easily on aircraft, reducing flight test costs and system development time. The device includes specialized software and sensors to acquire vibration and acceleration data for aircraft internal components to determine why and when components fail. The Navy currently utilizes a test instrumented aircraft to measure vibrations, which is time consuming and costly. RIP officials reported this technology is expected to save the Naval Air Systems Command $3 million to $5 million in the next 4 years in flight test costs. This technology is also available commercially."
