The information about the aircraft velocity as relating to the wind is provided to the system by the laser airspeed meter. It was jointly designed by NII Teplopribor and Aeropribor-Voskhod. The device’s prototype sample was demonstrated at the MAKS-2019 airshow as well.
Ilya Sokolov told Mil.Press Today about the advantage of the new instrument over the standard alternatives: "Our airspeed meter doesn’t need a heating system, it reliably operates in tough conditions. Just as important is that all measurements are non-contact, so you may put the entire device inside the drone. There will be only a lens outside".The International Aviation & Space Salon (MAKS-2019) took place in Zhukovsky, Moscow Region, from August 27 to September 1. The show attracted at least half a million visitors.
Mil.Press publishes news about the exhibit in the thematic section MAKS.
