IC2 is pleased to announce the release of our new MHzPressure™ Sensor, a fully calibrated, high-speed, mean and fluctuating pressure sensor that enables wide-band performance for hypersonic flow measurement applications.
Based on IC2’s proven piezoelectric MEMS pressure sensing technology, the small form factor offers the potential for drop-in replacement of existing instrumentation in scale wind-tunnel models. With a full magnitude and phase response calibration, MHzPressure sensors provide unprecedented high-frequency pressure measurement accuracy and resolution, providing aerospace engineers with a new tool to improve the fundamental understanding of high-speed transition to turbulence and validate computational models, paving the way for advancements in hypersonic flight.
Laminar-to-turbulent boundary layer transition is a key concern in the design of next-generation hypersonic vehicles and weapons; however, the ability to measure when and where transition occurs on a hypersonic article suffers from a lack of proper instrumentation.
In addition to our standard sensor package, our MHzPressure™ Sensor is also available in custom packages to fit our customer’s specific needs. Custom packaging can be used to accommodate unique installations or multi-sensor packages where closer sensor-to-sensor spacing is necessary.
