100700-02 HEATED AIR DATA BOOM
Sub-Sonic, Cost-Effective Design
PALMDALE, CALIFORNIA USA -- Adding to its line of air data products, SpaceAge Control, Inc. is now shipping the 100700-02 heated, straight nose air data boom that offers sub-sonic data collection of angle of attack, angle of sideslip, static pressure, and total (pitot) pressure. Applications include a broad range of flightcraft including military attack and cargo aircraft; commercial aircraft; trainers; drones/RPVs/UAVs; helicopters; racing aircraft; and general aviation aircraft. The product is now being used in experimental aircraft, business jet, and helicopter applications.
Based on a heated probe wind-tunnel tested to Mach 0.95, the 100700-02 air data boom is constructed from machined aluminum, stainless steel, and brass. The heated probe is 28-volt DC powered (145 watts) and meets the requirements of MIL-T-5420B and SAE AS 393. The heated probe provides a heated, internal water trap and drain.
The angle of attack and angle of sideslip vanes use precision, long-life (20+ million shaft revolutions), dual ganged, conductive plastic potentiometers. Synchro output and dual vane configurations are optionally available.
The heated air data boom weighs less than 6 lbs. and is approximately 30 inches in length. It can be mounted on the aircraft nose, wingtip, or tail.
Priced at less than $20,000, the 100700-02 gives users high price/performance compared to alternatives. Shipment leadtime is typically 30 days or less allowing for fast turnaround and low spares inventory requirements.
