The Vector probe is a device dedicated to measuring paraglider performance. The two main parameters measured are:

  • Air speed (IAS and TAS);
  • Glide angle (glide ratio).


These measurements are in the air reference frame and datas are normalized for a standard atmosphere in order to allow comparisons under different meteorological conditions.
A measurement point takes less than a minute, so it is possible to obtain the whole of the wing’s polar on a simple ballistic flight.
The probe can also be used to measure and optimize its position in the harness.

Process a flight

You have made a flight and you want to convert the raw probe file into physical data.

Check your probe

You have performed a static calibration and you want to check your probe.

Analysis tool

You have a file containing physical data and you want to extract the polar.
