Title: System and method for determining flow characteristics

Abstract: A fluid flow probe including: first, second and third pressure sensors; a first port for communicating a first pressure to the first pressure sensor; a second port for communicating a second pressure to the second pressure sensor, the second port being substantially oppositely disposed with respect to the first port, a third pressure port suitable for communicating a static pressure to the third pressure sensor; first and second outputs electrically coupled to the first and second pressure sensors, respectively, one of the first and second outputs indicative of a total pressure and the other of the outputs indicative of a base pressure; and, a third output electrically coupled to the third pressure sensor and indicative of the static pressure.
