A critical, and often overlooked, component of any serious UAV is the pitot-static system.
Pitot tubes are used to measure airspeed and barometric altitude (altitude based on atmospheric pressure). Airspeed is a critical factor in control of a UAV and it cannot be measured any other way.
The pitot tubes used by Skycam have the follwoing features
- Static compensated (makes altitude measurements more accurate)
- Protected against water and dirt ingress to increase reliability in hostile environments*.
- Small and light. Each tube is 6.5mm in diameter and 100m long and weighs only 16g
- Strong, stainless-steel construction
*These pitots have been tested in light rain with no adverse barometric effects.
