Air Data Probe

Air Data Probe

Designed for simple integration with the Micro Air Data Computer (μADC), the Air Data probe is an effective lightweight solution for measuring angle of attack, angle of sideslip, airspeed, and altitude where mobility is critical. With no moving parts, the Air Data probe is a reliable choice for pilots, drivers, and engineers looking to push the limits of performance and control.

Air Data probes allow for calculation of the complete flow vector. Its comprehensive design improves on traditional air data solutions (ex: Air Data Boom) by eliminating pitch and yaw vanes, which have moving parts with inertial effects that introduce inaccuracy and increase weight and response time.
