  • In electronics, the slew rate represents the maximum rate of change of a signal at any point in a circuit
  • In motion control, particularly with application to telescopes and spacecraft, slewing is the rotation of an object about an axis
    • In Crane (machine) terminology, slew is angular movement of a crane boom or crane jib in a horizontal plane [1]
    • In spacecraft navigation, slew (spacecraft) describes methods of changing the attitude of a spacecraft
      • The eigenvector slew is a particular method of calculating the rotation required for a specific desired change in attitude
    • In astronomy, the process of rotating a telescope to observe a different region of the sky is referred to as slewing
  • In computing, the Network Time Protocol (NTP) daemon uses slew, tiny variations in clock frequency, to adjust for clock skew.
