Miniature, Multi-Functional Air Data Probes for UAVs and Light Aircraft.
Full Air Data Sensing in Miniature Packaging.

SpaceAge Control has launched a new family of miniature multi-functional air data probes which offer complete air data sensing capability for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and light aircraft.

The products give users combinations of pitot pressure, static pressure, angle of attack, angle of sideslip, and air temperature. The comprehensive offerings reduce system integration efforts, reduce mass, and reduce power requirements.

The products - suited for use with production, flight test and development aircraft - are as follows :-

The 4383 with heated pitot-static (P-S) pressure with angle of attack (AOS) and angle of sideslip (AOS) outputs

The 4418 with unheated P-S pressure with AOA and AOS outputs

The 4512 heated P-S pressure with AOA and AOS and air temperature outputs

"SpaceAge Control's 20-year history with unmanned aircraft combined with our focus on listening to the customer have allowed us to design, test and manufacture this family of products ideally suited for aircraft needing low mass and comprehensive air data sensing," said Pat Birmingham, Operations, SpaceAge Control. "These products allow avionics, test, and design engineers to focus more on the data and less on the data source."

The air data probes can be modified in a number of ways - for different angle of attack and angle of sideslip sensor ranges, with customised mechanical interfaces to include pressure fittings and electrical connectors, or pitot-static probes provided with or without drain holes.
