Air Data Sensor Probe

The University of Kansas, KS, United States

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

A novel sensor design allows capture of angular fluid flow with greater accuracy than the conventional Pitot-type probe currently in use in commercial and military aircraft. This invention is most likely to be used in the aerospace industry as an onboard sensor for flight data and avionics systems.

Primary Application Area: Defense & Transportation

Technology Development Status: Prototype

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 7

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: Increased accuracy of airflow speed data under atypical conditions improves flight control systems, as well as safety and navigational systems.This invention also presents an integrated solution that provides accurate pressure and temperature measurements in a single location, creating data that is useful for control systems and fluid flow analysis.
