  Instrumentation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Instrumentation is defined as "the art and science of measurement and control".
Instrumentation can be used to refer to the field in which Instrument technicians and engineers work, or it can refer to the available methods of measurement and control and the instruments which facillitate this.
Instrumentation Engineers largely design control and measurement systems primarily for industrial processes, although instruments are present in almost any modern technology today including vehicles, computers, appliances etc.

 INSTRUMENTATION
Orbiter operational instrumentation is used to collect, route and process information from transducers and sensors throughout the orbiter and its payloads.
Instrumentation equipment, except sensors and selected dedicated signal conditioners, is located in the forward and aft avionics bays.
Its instruments continually sense the dynamic X, Y and Z attitudes and the performance characteristics of the orbiter during the launch, orbital, entry and descent phases of flight.

 Spinal instrumentation
Spinal instrumentation is a method of straightening and stabilizing the spine after spinal fusion, by surgically attaching hooks, rods, and wire to the spine in a way that redistributes the stresses on the bones and keeps them in proper alignment.
Spinal instrumentation is used to treat instability and deformity of the spine.
Cotrel-Dubousset instrumentation uses hooks and rods in a cross-linked pattern to realign the spine and redistribute the biomechanical stress.
