Abstract
Meteorological stations in planetary exploration are key instruments to analyze atmosphere dynamics. Wind Sensors have been incorporated to several missions to Mars (Viking, Mars Pathfinder, MSL, InSight) or are planned for the near future (Exomars, Mars2020). Additionally, wind sensors are key instruments in planetary exploration suchas in the case of Venus and Titan. The aim of this paper is to present a miniaturized 3D wind anemometerwhich is a good candidate for all these target scenar...
