Avcon provides aerial survey and mapping aircraft modifications. Avcon modifications are used for mapping, archaeology, mining, geophysics, reconnaissance, wildlife / deforestation monitoring, precision agriculture, airborne fire detection, radiation detection, and more.
AVCON AERIAL SURVEY AND
Avcon Aerial Survey modifications install provisions for cameras, Lidars, and Hyperspectral modifications.
Camera, Lidar, and Hyperspectral Modifications
Camera, Lidar, and Hyperspectral modifications add fuselage camera ports and fairings. Options for camera modifications include lens coatings, oversized ports (for large sensors or gyros) and drift sights.
Avcon modifications support installation of film and digital cameras, EO / IR sensors, LIDARs, magnetometers, and other custom designed equipment. Avcon provisions are also compatible with gyro mounts such as the Leica PAV100, T-AS Mount, and GSM 4000. Oversized Avcon ports are available for larger equipment.
Optical Glass & Lens Coatings
Avcon uses BK-7 Optical Glass or Fused Silica for camera, LIDAR, and Hyperspectral modifications. Lenses are available coated or uncoated.
Certain modifications allow removal of Optical Glass for unpressurized operations.
Avcon modifications include sensor cover doors to protect the camera port and defog systems to prevent sensor obstruction.
Avcon camera modifications are tested to maximum aircraft pressurization differentials.
Most Avcon aircraft modifications allow conversion to standard interior configurations with structural plugs or accessory kits (available for sale).
Custom Sensor Installation
Avcon installs provisions for sensors in the following configurations:
Inside Avcon Pod
Below Wing (Hardpoints)
Avcon installs provisions for magnetometers. The magnetometer booms are installed on the tail cone of King Air airplanes. Magnetometers detect variations in magnetic fields useful for oil and mineral detection in addition to border protection and coastal patrol.
