White Plains, NY – (May 12, 2014) Safe Flight Instrument Corporation, pioneers of Stall Warning and Angle of Attack sensors for all segments of the aviation market, now offers this technology for unmanned aircraft systems. This leading edge wing lift sensor (Lift Transducer) allows system designers to safely optimize mission performance by flying the lift / drag curve to maximize efficiencies and increase mission performance capabilities.
“Since 1946, pilots have been flying with confidence knowing they have Safe Flight Stall Warning and Angle of Attack installed on their aircraft. Today, UAV designers are employing the Safe Flight Lift Transducer to safely expand their mission profile and optimize vehicle performance” said Randall Greene, the company’s President and CEO. “Utilizing leading edge sensor technology to fly the lift / drag curve is essential when mission objectives include maximum time-on-station, peak endurance, envelope protection and energy efficiency”.
Safe Flight will be on hand at AUVSI (booth 2346). They will also be presenting “Fly the Curve” on Thursday May 15, 2014 at the AUVSI “Beyond the Booth Showcase” 12 noon – Booth 1469. “Fly the Curve” will discuss how to safely fly the power curve – important wing lift technology critical for unmanned mission operators and aircraft designers.
