Insitu selects SpaceAge Control pitot-static probe for Integrator

SpaceAge Control, Inc. has been selected by Insitu Inc. to provide the miniature pitot-static probe for the Integrator unmanned aircraft system (UAS). The probe provides primary air data pressure information required by the aircraft. This series of air data probes provides leading-edge power-efficiency, low mass, and small size for UAVs and light jets.

"After months of field evaluations by other end users, we are excited about Insitu selecting one of the SpaceAge Control's miniature pitot-static probes for the Insitu Integrator," said Pat Birmingham, Operations, SpaceAge Control. "This project serves as a testimony of the value of this type design to the UAV and light aircraft markets," Birmingham added.

This series of air data probes and similar SpaceAge Control solutions offer several benefits over traditional air data systems including 35% to 50% less power, 35% mass reduction, and mechanical interface backwards compatibility with legacy designs. The patented design specifically addresses the unique requirements of long-duration, smaller-sized aircraft such as unmanned aerial vehicles and light jets. The Insitu Integrator is one of several legacy and new aircraft programs using the patented SpaceAge Control air data probe technology.
