Heated Pitot-Static Probe for UAVs
Lightest and most power efficient commercially available probe for small unmanned aircraft vehicles (UAV).
The combined dynamic and static port heating system is fully integrated into the tube which allows for minimal power consumption. An onboard feedback controller continuously regulates the temperature of the probe and automatically switches off the heating element when the required temperature is reached. An additional signal output monitors the heating systems and detects fault conditions.
