High-quality air data is essential to precisely control and manoeuvre a UAV in flight. The Flight Control Computer requires accurate knowledge of Altitude (Barometric Pressure), True Airspeed (TAS), Angle-of-Attack (AOA) and Angle-of-Sideslip (AOS). In addition, meteorological data, such as temperature, humidity, three-dimensional winds and turbulence, can be of benefit to many of the unique roles carried out by UAVs.

Aventech's M200 and M300 series probes deliver high-quality air, inertial and meteorological data for both small and large UAVs. The M series smart probes are qualified under various military test standards to ensure reliability and high performance for even the most demanding applications.

See how the M series of probes could benefit your new UAV design or operations.
