Tecnam announces collaboration with UAV Vision Pty Ltd. to offer a low-cost Tecnam P92 Eaglet surveillance and aerial survey platform.
Tecnam today announced its collaboration with UAV Vision as its preferred partner to offer a complete aerial surveillance and survey solution linked to the Tecnam P92 Eaglet single engine aeroplane.
UAV Vision specializes in Gyro Stabilized Camera Gimbal systems and associated hardware and software for clients looking for cost effective solutions for surveillance and surveying activities.
Typical applications for the UAV Vision's gimbals include: geographical mapping and surveillance, fire monitoring, shark patrol, border security, tactical surveillance, law enforcement, environmental monitoring, power line, pipeline and and other infrastructure inspection, coast watch and stock monitoring to name a few.
Working in collaboration with Tecnam, UAV Vision recently showcased its offerings at AERO 2012 Friedrichshafen, where the system was installed on the Tecnam P9 Eaglet.
Tecnam made modifications to accommodate the UAV Vision Gimbal on a P92 Eaglet at its Capua production facility. Tecnam customers are now able to request these mounts, which can be fitted prior to delivery or retrospectively, as required.
At AERO 2012, UAV Vision demonstrated a full end-to-end "Complete System." Included in the equipment on display was a full Broadcast Quality Multi-Sensor Gimbal. Replays of a variety of previous missions were available for review, including fire patrols, flood water monitoring, maritime operation, and general flyovers. All scenarios demonstrated the ability of the UAV Vision system to collect and deliver critical information in an accurate and timely manner. Many of the missions include the use of UAV Visions GEOLock function. Once enabled GEOLock allows the operator freedom to relax while the system moves the camera to keep the selected area in frame.
The Tecnam P92 Eaglet is an all metal, two seat, single strut braced high wing aeroplane. It's spacious interior, wider cabin, larger doors for easier access, coupled with an engine well isolated from vibrations through dyna-focal attachments, has proved the P92 Eaglet to be the ideal platform for UAV Vision to showcase its offerings.
UAV VIsions CEO, Michael Bailey commented "ultimately it is the customers who benefit from the collaboration as it extends the number of applications the aircraft can be used for. Tecnam customers requesting the system can take comfort in that it is professionally installed and certified by Tecnam engineers."
