Camera installations on aircraft can vary in scope from a simple hardpoint for an SLR to large holes in the fuselage and large format sensors with lots of equipment installed in the cabin.
Immersive Camera Mount on Bell 206 Helicopter
Summary: Design, prototype and production of camera mount and lowering system for Immersive camera.
Project Name: IMC 407 Immersive Camera Mount
Client: Immersive Media
Client Request: To design and build a system that would lower Immersive Media’s camera below an array of helicopters. The camera must have a 360 degree clear view, and be able to lower and raise out of harms way on landing.
Project Summary: See Immersive Media Camera Mount for Bell 206 and Robinson R44 for more information.
Results: Fliegen Works has prototyped and designed a camera lowering system that can attach to most helicopter landing skids. It is simple to install, failsafe, and provides a stable platform for the camera to have a full 360 degree view when lowered. Fliegen Works has completed certification after successful structural and flight tests.
FAA Approvals: STC approved for the Installation on the Bell 206, and the R44, PMA approval for manufacturing.
