|Object Name:||Typhoon Air Data Pitot, Static & Flow Angle Vane|
|Year of Manufacture:||circa 2000|
|Location:||Rack RAA10 [Main Store]|
This is an Air Data Transducer Vane fitted to the Eurofighter Typhoon. The Air Data Transducer, in con¬junction with the Flight Control Computer (FCC). forms a distributed air data system for the EF2000 aircraft. Designed to measure ma¬noeuvrability. it also provides data for the computation of airspeed and altitude.
The unit combines a mobile multi-function vane sensing pitot pressure, static pressure and local flow angle with a processing unit that transmits data to the flight control system. The Vane element was provided by Thales, but we built the processing element (ADT - General Assembly) prior to the divestment to meggitt as statedIt was manufactured by Thales France but after transfer of the Air Data business from Marconi Avionics it was supplied by Meggitt Avionics. The Part Number is not marked but reference to on-line maintenance data suggests it might be 13-011-01/02/05/10
