Angle of attack sensor for small- and mid-sized aircraft

Small- and mid-size aircraft can now benefit from lower power requirements and smaller size of the 4239-01 angle of attack (AOA) sensors from SpaceAge Control. Designed specifically to meet the needs of commuter, business, and general aviation aircraft, the 4239-01 AOA sensors provide:

* 100 W maximum power requirement (in-flight, continuous)

* 1 lb. (454 g) weight maximum

* Deicing capability per TSO-C16A and BSI 2G-135 (Section 8.7.2)

* Electrical angle of -30 to +45 degrees

* User-specified electrical angles optionally available

* Heated vane and sensor case

The products are a direct off-shoot of the SpaceAge Control's 30+ year heritage in producing angle of attack sensors for flight test aircraft.

"Customers asked us to supply an airflow sensor designed with smaller size, lower weight, and, most critically, lower power draw", stated Tom Anderson III, CEO. "To date, the 4239-01 product has exceeded the design requirements to include a severe deicing test."

Established in 1968, SpaceAge Control is an ISO9001:2000/AS9100B-compliant company leading the air data and displacement sensing industries with stock and engineered-to-order products. Located in Palmdale, California USA near Edwards AFB, the Skunk Works, and Mojave-based Scaled Composites, SpaceAge Control's high-precision and durable products are used by over 200 companies spanning the globe including aircraft manufacturers, racing teams, vehicle manufacturers, and motion control-oriented OEMs
