Inertial BoxDAQ V2.0

3,799.00

Lead Time: 2 Weeks

The Inertial BoxDAQ combines a commercial-grade GPS/INS, an AirDAQ receiver, and a custom datalogger into a tiny, rugged package that can be easily integrated into any aircraft. It's one-stop-shopping for instrumentation of the following parameters:

  • Roll/pitch/heading
  • Roll rate/pitch rate/yaw rate
  • Latitude/longitude/altitude
  • 3-axis velocity (North-East-Down)
  • 3-axis acceleration (XYZ)

In addition to the parameters above, the Inertial BoxDAQ receives data from AirDAQ-compatible sensors within range, meaning that it can log air data from a Featherweight and control surface position from a StringPot alongside INS data. Combined with other AirDAQ sensors, the Inertial BoxDAQ is a total instrumentation solution for common flight test tasks - at a fraction of the cost and installation time of traditional systems!

Built for acro from the ground up.

The Inertial BoxDAQ uses an advanced GPS/INS with Kalman filtering to combine data from a 3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis gyroscope, 3-axis magnetometer, and a GPS receiver. A low-pass filter is applied to the 800 Hz raw data to minimize the effects of airframe vibrations. Finally, the data is downsampled to get you a crisp, clean 50 Hz signal.

Tested in everything.

When we built the Inertial BoxDAQ, we knew it was going to take heavy machinery to see what this box could do. So we tested it on an Extra 300L. And a T-6 Texan. And an Aermacchi MB-326M Impala. And we did everything. Upright spins. Inverted spins. Snap rolls. Vertical reversals, slalom courses, ballistic rolls, the T-6 course at Reno, the Red Bull course in Budapest... the list goes on.

Engineered for easy.

When you're in an aggravated spin, the last thing you want to be thinking about is whether or not your data acquisition system is doing the job - so we made it simple. Switch: ON. Three green: GOOD. Getting the data afterwards is just as easy: just plug the Inertial BoxDAQ into any computer like you would plug in a flash drive, and download the .CSV files.


Easily log air data and surface positions along with INS data.

Since the Inertial BoxDAQ integrates an AirDAQ receiver, it will faithfully log air data, control surface position data, and more alongside data from the internal INS.

Featherweight V3.0 Wireless
1,899.00

Lead Time: 2 Weeks

The Featherweight V3.0 Wireless air data system combines a beautifully machined Kiel-type pitot static port, vanes for angle-of-attack and angle-of-sideslip measurement, and an AirDAQ compatible, battery-powered air data computer in a lightweight, 250-gram probe. Designed for quick and easy temporary attachment to any airframe in fast-paced flight test applications, the Featherweight provides an alternative to expensive and heavy air data systems. It's the quickest, easiest, and cheapest way to acquire the following parameters from a test aircraft:

  • Pitot Pressure
  • Static Pressure
  • Angle-of-Attack
  • Angle-of-Sideslip

Looking for a quick, easy way to attach the Featherweight to your airframe? Check out the Conformal Mounting System!

StringPot
429.00

Lead Time: 2 Weeks

The StringPot is a displacement sensor that provides an unprecedented level of ease of installation and use. Also known as a draw-wire sensor, string potentiometer, or cable extension transducer, the device uses a lightweight spring-return cable that winds around a precision-machined, grooved spool to measure linear displacement with spectacular simplicity. With three different power and output types to choose from, the StringPot is as easy to use as it is to buy.
