SkyIMD Expands Approved Model List STC for SkyFusion Pak

Camera Platform FAA Approved for Multiple Aircraft Types

SkyFusion Pak now approved for installation on Cessna 152, 172, 182 and 206

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 for their SkyFusion Pak system. 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 the wing strut of Cessna 206 aircraft. The AML-STC enables installation of the SkyFusion Pak system on 35 models of Cessna 152, 172, 182 and 206 aircraft without having to seek separate FAA field approvals for each installation. The AML-STC also approves installation of multiple SkyIMD systems on one aircraft.

“The Cessna 206 is popular with law enforcement, one of the largest markets for our SkyFusion Pak aerial imaging system,” said Henri Wolf, director of product marketing. “The AMC-STC allows our customers to install our system without having to seek FAA field approval.”

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.
