The field of meteorology relies on barometric pressure sensors to monitor changes in atmospheric pressure. Even U.S. Government organizations like the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Data Buoy Center depend on barometric sensors. These demanding applications require dynamic response and high-performance calibration as well as accuracy, stability, and low thermal error.
Specific applications for barometric sensors include:
- weather stations
- wind assessments
- high-altitude research balloons
- aircraft altimeter re-certification
- lab- and product-process monitoring
- altitude chambers
- data buoy
