    A pitot tube is a pressure measurement instrument used to measure fluid flow velocity. Most often, pitot tubes are used to determine the speed of aircraft and boats. Before launching a new aircraft design for use in both private and commercial aviation, it must be shown the correct airspeed data is communicated regardless of airflow disruptions. This is achieved through calibration of the pitot tubes. In this dissertation, we focus on developing a wireless interface to achieve a faster and improved data transmission without fuselage alteration. For this purpose, an embedded system was designed. It integrates the STM32F4-Discovery development environment and the ALPHA-TRX433S high performance radio modules. In essence, data is collected and wirelessly transmitted for display.
