Aviation Air Data Systems
Air data systems provide accurate information on quantities such as pressure altitude, vertical speed, calibrated airspeed, true airspeed, Mach number, static air temperature and air density ratio. This information is essential for the pilot to fly the aircraft safely and is also required by a number of key avionic subsystems which enable the pilot to carry out the mission. It is thus one of the key avionic systems in its own right and forms part of the essential core of avionic sub systems required in all modern aircraft, civil or military.
Pitot probes including pitot, pitot static and pitot/angle-of-attack probes designed and in service, meeting the requirements of virtually any type of aerospace application. Probes are designed to meet or exceed all applicable standards, including SAE AS393, DOD MIL-T-5421B, TSOC-16, AN5813 and BS2G.135. With extensive testing and analysis refined by years of experience, reliability is built into every facet of this product. Pitot Probes are designed with rugged heating elements to prevent ice accretion and water ingression for reliable operation in the most adverse environmental conditions. Probes may be configured as stand alone with pneumatic outputs to the Air Data Computer, or they may integrate the computing function and eliminate the pneumatic connection.
Air data systems, standby displays, digital and mechanical standby instruments, sensors and probes, are parts of this family.
The Rockwell Collins ADS-3000 Air Data System senses, computes and displays all parameters essential to flight. It currently is certified to comply with the Reduced Vertical Separation Minimum (RVSM) requirements.
This distinctive digital design offers reduced size, weight and power consumption; continuous monitoring of all functions and internal diagnostics; increased system and integrity; and simplified installation.
