The Harshest Test Environment

Our facility includes one of the most capable wind tunnels in the world — blasting ice particles at Mach 0.9 and providing temperatures down to -90°F (-67°C) and altitude up to 50,000 feet (15,420 meters)

Design Features

With over 60 years of air data experience and innovation, the robust design of our air data systems relays vital information for aircraft flight control by providing highly accurate measurements over a wide range of angles of attack and airspeeds, even in extreme icing conditions. UTC Aerospace Systems’ air data sensors have demonstrated success around the world on the majority of aircraft types in operation.

Simplified Design
Less parts and maintenance for aircraft operators
Reduced Weight
Delivering enhanced operational efficiency
Ease of Installation
Initial installation and replacement require less time
Improved accuracy
Reliable measurements and system compatibility with almost all aircraft types

SmartProbe® Air Data System

GenIV Smart Probe

With highly advanced air data sensing technology and fewer parts by design, our SmartProbe® Air Data Systems rise above traditional air data systems for their simplicity in architecture. Because each SmartProbe unit features its own air data computer to calculate air data parameters, all pneumatic tubing and considerable electrical wiring and other components are eliminated. The result is superior performance and operational reliability.

Angle of Attack Systems

AOA
Precise, reliable measurement and display of AOA from takeoff to landing can substantially improve aircraft performance as well as assure a safe operating margin above stall speed.

Our patented Rosemount Aerospace swept tapered vane minimizes aerodynamic drag and provides excellent dynamic response and higher accuracy in turbulent conditions. It is electrically de-iced by a self-regulating, solid state heater that does not require thermostats, thereby lowering system complexity and increasing reliability.

Total Air Temperature (TAT) Sensors

EPTAT
Increasing air traffic, higher operating costs and greater performance demands have made precision air data measurements necessary for safety, economy and maximum performance.

Our family of TAT Sensors are among the leading precision sensors available, designed for all weather use with temperatures ranging from -94 degrees F to +662 degrees F (-70 degrees C to +350 degrees C), speeds up to Mach 3+ and altitude up to 100,000 feet (30.5 km). Our latest Enhanced Performance TAT (EPTAT™) features a swept-style strut and modified scoop design, offering enhanced performance in supercooled rain and ice-crystal icing conditions.
