Smart Miniature Vane SMV-1

The Smart Miniature Vane SMV-1 is a fully integrated wind-vane probe to measure angle of attack (AoA), angle of side-slip (AoS) and other airflow angles. The SMV-1 is the optimal solution if precise airflow information is needed on unmanned aircraft (UAV), remotely piloted aircraft (RPA) and other flight vehicles. The probe provides calibrated absolute angular data on the RS‑485 data interface.

SMV-1 Smart Miniature Vane

Two vanes can be interconnected on a single RS-485 interface. In this way it is possible to read-in AoA and AoS angles on a single RS 485 interface.
