D.E.V.I.C.E. is an encyclopedia of terms used by manufacturers of test and measurement equipment. T&M Atlantic created this service to better explain the functionality of instruments it offers, and to highlight the latest developments in the world of measurement equipment. We are using such tools as animation to bring words and pictures to life and to create not just an understanding but also an appreciation for technology that goes into the design of every instrument.

On March 2, 1949 the airplane Lucky Lady II (United States Air Force Boeing B-50 Superfortress) became the first one to circle the world nonstop.
The aircraft started its round-the-world trip on February 26, 1949. It took off from Carswell Air Force Base near Fort Worth, Texas and passed the control tower back at Carswell on March 2, marking the end of the circumnavigation, after having been in the air for 94 hours and 1 minute.
