Abstract: Many of the actual sensors that provide the information for the inititial transduction process that feeds modern electronic displays in aircraft have remained essentially unchanged since the early days of aviation. For example, the measurement of altitude and airspeed might rely on sensors responding to changes in air pressure. Sensors that respond in both a manometric and barometric sense to changes in air pressure are covered in this chapter. However, the introduction to the chapter first covers the basic aerodynaic theory necessary to understand the physics of these devices.
