Up to two SkyFusion Pak systems can be installed on one aircraft
June 29, 2012 — SkyIMD, Inc., provider of advanced aerial imaging systems, has announced they have received FAA Approved Model List – Supplemental Type Certificate (AML-STC) approval of installations of multiple SkyFusion Pak systems on one aircraft. The expanded AML builds on the original AML certification granted to the company in August 2009, and authorizes installation of the SkyIMD aerial imaging system on either left or right wing struts, or multiple mounts (one system on both wing struts) of Cessna 206, 182 and 172 aircraft.
“This provides the ultimate configuration flexibility for our customers.” said Henri Wolf, director of product marketing. “Not only can the SkyFusion Pak system be mounted on left strut, right strut or belly of an aircraft, up to two different systems—of different sizes—can be mounted.”
“It is a significant achievement that our SkyFusion Pak aerial imaging system has been selected by the world’s leading aircraft company,” said Tom Bleier, vice president of business development at SkyIMD. “We look forward to continuing our close cooperation with Cessna to develop advanced ISR systems that meet the demanding needs of our law enforcement customers.”
SkyFusion Pak is a turnkey solution for real-time aerial imaging and intelligence. SkyFusion Pak meets the needs of mission-critical and technically-demanding applications including border patrol, law enforcement, crisis management and mobilization, and search and rescue.
Key features of the SkyFusion Pak aerial imaging system include:
