Complex, multiple-sensor Probes, equipped with temperature, heat flux and pressure sensors can be
manufactured by Astra on custom design, including probe supports and thermal protection devices
for thermally critical areas of the probes themselves.
Heat Flux Sensors
Astra manufactures many types of slug sensors, both standard and custom designed.
Astra is also able to select and supply many other sensors, including Gardon sensors,
Schmidt-Boelter sensors, thermopile sensors and others.
Astra design and manufacture hypersonic facilities based on industrial components, minimizing complex and expensive
"ad hoc" systems and overcoming the problems of reliability and low productivity typical of hypersonic wind tunnel.
based on customer requirements and the results of a proprietary software, Astra sets the technology
and the design of the facility (Torch type, chamber pressure, nozzle design, instrumentation).
Astra builds the facility, demonstrates the systemís performance and assist the customer
with process parameters and diagnostic tools setting.
