THE WORLD’S TOUGHEST WIND SENSORS
IS ACCURATE WIND SPEED MEASUREMENT CRUCIAL TO YOUR OPERATIONS?
If wind speed and direction information out in the field is important to you, then you need a rugged wind sensor that can deliver reliable readings even in the harshest of environments. From the Sahara to the South Pole, FT wind sensors are used on armoured vehicles, in CBRN detection equipment and in ballistic meteorology systems. Tough but lightweight, they are even used on board sUAS and at UAV ground launch and recovery stations.
MOBILE, COMPACT, LIGHTWEIGHT
WIND SPEED, DIRECTION & TEMPERATURE
RUGGED AND SHOCK-RESISTANT
LIGHTWEIGHT SENSOR FOR DRONES
HEATED FOR COLD CLIMATES
Lightweight, with low-power usage, it is ideally suited for portable or temporary deployments where it may be roughly handled.
Unique acoustic resonance technology delivers a strong signal and reliable data even in the toughest of climates and weather conditions.
Extremely small, with no moving parts to degrade or damage, FT sensors are developed to resist drop, shock and vibration. During development they are tested to 30G
Our lightweight FT205 sensor weighs only 100g and is ideal for use on UAV and as a replacement for a pilot-based system on fixed wing or multi-rotor UAVs.
The aluminium hard anodised body is highly resistant to corrosion, sand, dust and electromagnetic interference. Requires no maintenance or re-calibration
The aluminium body ensures that heat is evenly distributed for effective ice prevention. A thermostatically controlled heating system allows the sensor to maintain its temperature at a user specified heater set point between 0 and 50°C.
FT Technologies: the world’s toughest wind sensors
Quality at the heart of everything we do
For many years now, our wind sensors have been used on armoured vehicles, CBRN detection equipment, and ballistic meteorology systems. More recently, our lightweight FT205 sensor has been used on drones.
Thales integrates an FT wind sensor into their METSMAN High Accuracy Meteorological System.
CBRN DETECTION EQUIPMENT
Lockheed Martin integrates an FT sensor into their Chemical, Biological, Radiological Early Warning Systems.
HOSTILE ARTILLERY LOCATING SYSTEM
HALO (Hostile Artillery Locating System) is an acoustic weapon locating system produced by Leonardo, integrating an FT wind sensor.
FIRE MONITORING BY DRONE
Measuring wind speed at the fire front a drone integrates an FT205 lightweight wind sensor.
