This month’s issue, available in print or digital editions, contains features on Electromechanical tech & Mil/Aero apps, plus EPDT's twice-yearly IoT & Industry 4.0 supplement.
My Editor's comment this month opens the issue with a plea to politicians not to underestimate the importance and value of UK manufacturing to the UK economy (p4 digital issue or web version).
Our cover story envisions a complete sensor-to-cloud sensor-fused precision location tracking system for first responder & military personnel – with MEMS inertial sensors at its heart (p7 digital issue or web version).
Also in Electromechanical, we examine how to ensure antennas aren’t the single point of failure in outdoor IoT deployments (p14 digital issue or web version); and we review how connector technology is helping a team of student rocket designers push the performance envelope (p17 digital issue or web version).
For Mil/Aero, we discuss the use of COTS components in high reliability military & aerospace applications (p12 digital issue or web version).
Our bi-annual IoT & Industry 4.0 supplement (p19 digital issue) opens with a guest introduction from Connectivity Editor, Paige West, talking Industry 5.0 (p21 digital issue or web version). It also explores the cornucopia of wireless standards for IoT (p23 digital issue or web version); features a virtual round table on software for IoT embedded system design (p27 digital issue or web version); and outlines how IoT gateway software can help standardise cloud communications (p29 digital issue or web version).

Our T&M feature explains why supporting the test requirements of aerospace projects long term is getting harder (p31 digital issue or web version).
And finally, as two new engineering institutions for children are launched, my regular STEM column explores what they offer for engineers in the making (p34 digital issue or web version).
As always, I hope you enjoy the issue – and I’d love to hear what you think or any ideas for topics you’d like EPDT to cover. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org...
