June 2, 2010


BENBROOK, TX-The Coordinate Metrology Society (CMS) has chosen 25 technical white papers to be presented at its annual Coordinate Metrology Systems Conference (CMSC) from July 12-16, 2010, at the Grand Sierra Resort located in Reno, NV. White paper submissions were received from metrology experts and scientists from research laboratories, universities, and leading manufacturers in North America, Eastern and Western Europe, India and Japan. Topics to be presented are as diverse as the speaker roster, and include aligning the James Webb Space Telescope, Airbus A320 Aircraft assembly line alignment, and other applications of photogrammetry, articulating arms, laser radar, laser trackers, 3-D scanners, 3-D vision systems and more.

The CMS also is pleased to announce its 2010 Keynote speaker, Thomas A. Greenwood, program director of the A350XWB Leading Edge Spar at Spirit AeroSystems Inc. Additionally, the conference will host four workshops covering the Coordinate Metrology Certification Initiative, 3-D Imaging, Gage R&R, and GD&T. CMSC 2010 also features an Exhibit Hall showcasing portable measurement systems (PCMMs), software, accessories, peripherals and service providers supplying the needs of the industrial measurement marketplace.

More than 35 exhibitors participated at last year's conference where ideas, concepts and theory flow freely among the participants. Conference attendees hail from prominent science/research laboratories, educational institutions, and industries such as aerospace, satellite, automotive, shipbuilding, power generation and general engineering.

The Coordinate Metrology Society is a membership of users, service providers, and OEM manufacturers of close-tolerance industrial coordinate measurement systems, software, and peripherals. The society gathers each year to gain knowledge of the advancements and applications of any measurement system or software solution that produces and uses 3-D coordinate data.
