Ultrasonic wind sensors and weather stations for UAV launch sites

Successful launch and landing

Accurate observation and measurement of surface wind at UAV sites is essential to ensure correct and successful launch and landings.

Increased safety

Because the size and design of UAV’s varies greatly, knowing the surface wind conditions is critical to ensure control of the UAV is maintained. Any deviation from the planned flight path can pose a safety risk to ground crew and could result in serious damage to or total loss of the aircraft.
