Microflown Technologies’ Ultimate Sound Probe 3-D acoustic vector sensors measure the vector value acoustic particle velocity instead of the scalar value sound pressure, making them suitable for many UAV applications. Acoustic sensing allows for automated takeoff and landing under all weather conditions and helps prevent mid-air collisions. The compact, low-mass, and low-power passive sensors offer a full spherical field of regards, capable of localizing and tracking a larger number of noise-making objects in a detection range up to 10 km. The sensors also offer advantages for situational awareness of manned aircraft and for ground surveillance from airborne platforms.
