The TriSonica™ Sphere Wind Flux Sensor is the 3D Sonic ideal for UAS-based atmospheric flux studies. With its more precise vertical wind measurements and its faster sampling rates (up to 100 Hz), the TriSonica Sphere was engineered specifically for atmospheric flux and turbulence research, including Eddy Covariance studies. The TriSonica Sphere’s unique spherical design (U.S. Patent No.: 11,268,974) dramatically reduces shadow correction while increasing the accuracy of vertical wind measurements. Its all aluminum construction enhances the devices’ durability while maintaining its SWaP (Size, Weight, and Power) advantage over competitive sensors. This makes the TriSonica Sphere ideal for UAS/UAV deployments.
The TriSonica Spheres’ design and open path geometry enables it to effectively and accurately capture measurements of all three dimensions (U, V and W) of air flow with the least possible distortion of the wind field, especially vertical turbulences. It should be noted that the TriSonica Sphere does not include sensors for humidity, temperature, or compass direction, but will measure tilt.
