A multi-hole conical probe is employed to determine the velocity of the air flow, total and static pressures of the wind tunnel, wave angle in addition to estimating the noise of the test segment. It twinkles with the unique qualities of being trouble-free, vigorous with the flexibility to be applied even in ruthless situations. Our innovative conical wedge type probe is launched by means of AUTOCAD and engineered by exploiting the stain less steel material. The pressure holes are situated at the end of the conical probe which is applied to calculate the pressure and flow velocity of the atmosphere. The novel probe is performed at supersonic settings by the effective use of the proficient Computational Fluid Dynamic Analysis (CFD analysis) software. It discharges the task of assessing the enduring competence of the projected probe under a variety of situations like fixed pressure and temperature along with the velocity of the air flow at different mach-numbers. This sample fashioned blueprint built up in CFD is estimated under supersonic backdrops up to mach 3. Thus, it is crystal clear that that our well-conceived sample developed with semi nose angle 20º  ushers in a sterling performance  in mach 2.8 triggering an incredible shock wave of 29.3º
