Ultrasonic Wind Speed Sensors

The new ultrasonic wind speed and direction sensor for the US Navy will be manufactured in the UK by Gill Instruments. The new sensor, based on Gillís WindObserver technology, and customised for the projects specific needs, has been selected as the preferred sensor for measuring wind for naval applications by the US Navy for the MORIAH project. The unit will replace existing electro-mechanical devices with state of the art digital ultrasonic wind measurement technology.

The wind sensors will be used for a variety of applications including providing wind data to flight decks for aircraft. The precise measurement of windspeed and direction is an essential element in weapon and decoy systems control, helicopter and fixed wing aircraft handling, navigation, fuel management etc. Traditionally, wind measurement has been achieved using electromechanical anemomters - a cumbersome technique subject to inaccuracies, icing, component wear and unreliability, requiring frequent servicing, maintenance and calibration. Gill's solid state wind measurement system overcomes these disadvantages.
