Collins Aerospace's SmartProbe® Air Data System

Collins Aerospace’s SmartProbe® Air Data System reduces the number of sensors and pneumatic pressure lines, resulting in weight savings of up to 50 percent when compared with traditional systems, thereby reducing fuel burn.

With highly advanced air data sensing technology and fewer parts by design, the SmartProbe Air Data Systems rise above traditional air data systems for their simplicity in architecture. Because each SmartProbe unit features its own air data computer to calculate air data parameters, all pneumatic tubing and considerable electrical wiring and other components are eliminated. The result is superior performance and operational reliability.
