Single Sensor For Static and Dynamic Pressure

While looking at new products on GlobalSpec, I came across this sensor from Delta Metrics.  Delta Metrics (a subsidiary of tecsis DBA) has created a single sensor to measure both static and dynamic pressure simultaneously, reducing the complexity of implementing an airspeed sensor.  More information is available through Delta Metrics.

whats the price of it?

The static/dynamics terms in this case refer to the sensor bandwidth (i.e. DC-100 kHz), not to any ability of the sensor to measure static pressure and stagnation pressure simultaneously. You would still need two of these to make a pitot tube.
