Auto Avia Design has developed numerous installation data packages for camera and survey instruments in pressurised and non-pressurised aircraft.
We recognise our client’s needs, thus we apply the following design criteria to all aerial photography modifications:
- Rigidity: To ensure image quality, mounting systems must prevent any unintended movement of the photographic equipment during operation
- Mounting Compatibility: Aerial imaging aircraft are typically multi-role and require the ability to adapt to a variety of imaging/scientific equipment. Mounts should be compatible with new technology as well as older photographic equipment.
- Ease of Operation / Location – The photographic equipment must be located to minimise vibration and pitch/roll/yaw movements. The location must also take into account accessibility, and any required structural modifications or control re-routing.
Common aerial imaging platforms are:
- Cessna 414 (pressurised)
- Beech Kingair
- Cessna 402
- Piper PA-31
