Stand alone pod system anti-iced to be able to measure 3-D wind in all conditions. The instrument, which mounts in a PMS-style canister, combines an 858 gust pod tip (used to provide sources for differential and static pressure measurements) with a CMIGITS inertial reference unit. The instrument can be installed on either the GV or C-130.
