It is important to produce an accurate 3D map of an exhaust flowfield to compare against CFD simulations. The traverse rig allows pitot and temperature probes to be inserted into the exhaust at moved to specific locations throughout a run. The traverse is controlled from S & C's logging software and can be operated remotely via an ethernet connection.
