AeroScientific partners with Hasselblad to create new turnkey airborne imaging system
May 18, 2017 - AeroScientific, manufacturers of the award-winning Aviatrix flight management system (FMS), has joined forces with camera manufacturer Hasselblad to create a new and exciting turnkey airborne imaging system. The system is built around the recently-announced Hasselblad A6D 100 megapixel medium format aerial camera.
Adelaide-based AeroScientific has been developing flight management systems (FMS) for over five years. The Aviatrix FMS is currently used by both small and large operators in dozens of countries worldwide.
“Partnering with Hasselblad has given us a unique opportunity to create a brand new, fully integrated airborne mapping system” says AeroScientific CEO, Dr. Paul Dare. “The new A6D 100 megapixel medium format aerial camera is an excellent sensor which integrates seamlessly with our Aviatrix flight management system.”
In support of the new Hasselblad camera, AeroScientific has modified its software and upgraded its hardware. The company has designed and built, from the ground up, an airborne flight computer (the “FlightCube”) to ensure easy and efficient operations. Flight tests with the A6D and the FlightCube have shown that the new system performs exactly as expected.
“As a pilot myself, I know the importance of having a reliable system that is easy to use in the air” continues Dr. Dare. “This new system that we have developed with Hasselblad is exactly what every pilot wants: it makes mapping operations a quick and easy.”
AeroScientific and Hasselblad will be launching this new airborne imaging system next week at the Geo Business trade show in London on the 23rd and 24th May 2017.
