CANSEC 2015, Ottawa, 27-28/5/15, Exhibit Space #530
According to the CEO of Aviatech Technical Services, Mr. Mirko Zgela: "We are proud to present for the first time at CANSEC 2015 this new affordable airborne surveillance suite". The A-SMS is offered with a variety of CONTROP’s EO/IR Gyro-stabilized Payloads, including the Full HD and high performance DSP-HD, the Full HD medium-range QUAD-HD or the compact and lightweight SHAPO. This variety enables the Customer to select a configuration which best matches the operational requirements.
In addition to the payload, the A-SMS includes an Operator’s Work Station with a display monitor, DVR, Control Unit, Mission Computer and Moving Map Software. This software features Augmented Reality (AR) as well as several additional (optional) capabilities such as Cockpit Display, Video Downlink and a Searchlight which is “slaved” to the payload’s Line-of-Sight (LOS). Also included is a certified A-Kit for mounting the payload and the entire system on the helicopter.
“Our A-SMS recently received STC (Supplementary Type) Certification by the Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA) and by the Brazilian Civilian Aviation Authority (ANAC), and is in the process of receiving certificate validation by the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for one of the most popular type of Defence/Police surveillance platforms in Canada, the AS 350/355.” Mr. Zgela goes on to say that “Now that we have received these important certifications, we have the capability to offer this upgrade package to all AS 350/355 Operators and we are also more than ready to certify the package on other helicopter or aircraft models, upon Customer’s request. Furthermore, the A-SMS is very attractively priced relative to similar systems and is ITAR free.”
