THE FOREFRONT OF AIR DATA TECHNOLOGY
UTC Aerospace Systems is continually expanding our air data measurement capabilities, becoming a single source for entire systems. We currently offer a wide range of products for pneumatic measurements of air data parameters, each designed to meet a particular need, including Pitot probes, Pitot-static probes, multi-function probes with flow angle measurement, various flight test products, and SmartProbe® air data systems. These products provide the capability to optimally configure the air data system for any type of aircraft.

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)
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.
SmartProbe® Air Data System
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.
Traditional Air Data System
SmartProbe® Air Data System
Our air data systems have demonstrated success on a diverse range of military and commercial aircraft, helicopters and unmanned vehicles. Their versatility and adaptability have made them the preferred air data solution for new and retrofit programs. As a premier Tier One integrator and aftermarket solutions provider, UTC Aerospace Systems stands ready to integrate with your platform.

Angle of Attack Systems
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
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.
