The system can protect delicate microdevices and microelectronics from shocks of up to 60,000g. In comparison, today's hardened "black box" flight recorders can withstand shocks of up to 1000g.
Real Programmers don't write in FORTRAN. FORTRAN is for pipe stress freaks and
crystallography weenies. FORTRAN is for wimp engineers who wear white socks.
