Go big or go long? Motor choice is about balancing the need for torque, form factor, and performance. Beyond length and diameter, learn how other motor topologies optimize your EO/IR platform.

Key talking points:

  • Reasons to adjust OD to through bore ratios.
  • Choosing between slot vs slotless motor design.
  • Explore the trade-offs of motor design options to minimize torque ripple and maximize torque density or torque per volume.

Our Presenters

Tom S. Wood, a 30+ year veteran in high-performance motion control, will lead this interactive session. He’ll share solutions to the most common challenges when integrating frameless motors into seeker heads, fin actuators and other motion-critical systems. And, based on his years of experience helping create successful solutions for Lockheed Martin systems, he’ll be answering any questions you may have for designing next-generation motion systems for advanced defense applications.
