Photolite digital aerophotographic complex


PhotoLite aerophotographic complex. Light — some ten kilograms together with a camera and an additional thermal camera. It is convenient and does not require a specially trained crew.

Any light aircraft is good to set a PhotoLite aerophotographic complex. EcoGeoTec uses PhotoLite on a weight-shift control aircraft, An-2 planes, Mi-2, Mi-8 and Robinson-44 helicopters.

An aircraft should have a hole with a diameter of 10–12 cm but not 30–50 cm for the generally accepted aerial equipment. You can set the complex on a door of your plane or helicopter.

PhotoLite does not require a specially trained crew. Thanks to full automation of the complex one pilot can make aerial photography. And it is not his sole purpose.

The complex is automatic one. Our system uses an electronic magnetic compass and a GPS detector. Their information allows detecting the drift angle for turning the platform. A computer makes a command to turn the platform, the camera turns to the drift angle and pictures have no distortions. Forward overlap is set automatically as well.

It is very light. So, it can be set outside the useful construction of the aircraft and it does not occupy the useful area in the cabin. So, aerial photography or patrolling of oil lines can be combined with transportation purposes.
