Multi-Sensor P68 Hits The Mainstream!

Airborne Technologies has handed over a second Vulcanair P68 to OPEGIEKA, a leading Polish Research & Development company, which was designed and certified for 4 different sensor configurations. Wolfgang Grumeth, CEO of Airborne Technologies, said: “For the first time it is possible to install a laser scanner configuration which allows the usage of 3 different wavelength simultaneously. We are holding STC´s to adapt the P68 aircraft to a survey or surveillance aircraft which provides the customer high operational flexibility and quick adaption capabilities.” Due to the P68´s possibility of having an extra hatch integrated in the cabin, any customer can install a second advanced sensor suite in the rear fuselage. ABT´s rear hatch option for the P68 family is retrofittable at any time and increases the effectiveness of data collection during one single flight.
The equipment package for the varying configurations contains a RIEGL VQ-1560i-DW, a RIEGL LMS-Q680i, a LEICA DMC III large format camera and 3 data recorders.
As of today, Opegieka is optimally prepared for high-level multi-spectral remote sensing operations.
