zzThe μADS 2.0: Small, Accurate, Real-Time


Combine the functionality of our five hole probes with our micro air data computer to produce a fully integrated air data system that will greatly improve the stability and safety of unmanned aircraft used in research, commercial, or defense applications by delivering accurate air data to a flight controller or remote pilot in real-time.

The μADS 2.0 incorporates our industry-leading air-data reduction algorithms into a compact, lightweight micro air data computer. When paired with our air data probe, the airspeed, angle of attack, and angle of side-slip are measured with high accuracy while the integrated GPS/INS unit produces real-time synced data.
