Recent developments and news at the pressure probe manufacturing firm Vectoflow.

Paper of TU Berlin

An interesting paper coming from TU Berlin was published on the topic “Development of an Instrumented Guide Vane Set for RDC Exhaust Flow Characterization”. As described in the publication, short duration measurements of detonation waves in the TU Berlin detonation test stand were made using two Kiel Probes from Vectoflow made of CoCr alloy.

Product launch: VectoDAQ Air Data System

The VectoDAQ Air Data System consists of an air data computer and a leightweight flow measurement probe made with additive manufacturing, like all of Vectoflow’s probes. It is designed for simultaneous measurements of multiple pressure and temperature signals and data reduction of the data to obtain flow values like angle of attack, true air speed and flight height.
