Heated Pitot-Static Probe for UAVs

Lightest and most power efficient commercially available probe for small unmanned aircraft vehicles (UAV).

Key Features

UAV Factory’s heated Pitot-Static Tube is the lightest and most power efficient commercially available probe for small unmanned aircraft vehicles (UAV). Manufactured from carbon fiber and aircraft grade aluminum, this probe provides both dynamic and static pressure measurements in a single ultra-light and rigid package. The simple mechanical interface allows quick removal.
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.
