Aerial Survey Computer
ASC AVCAN Systems Corp. - Vancouver, BC
To participate in the engineering, prototyping, and
manufacturing of an airborne data acquisition platform for the
collection of video and thermal images that are synchronized
with the position and spatial orientation of the aircraft. The
enclosure system has to shelter the technology hardware from
shock, vibration, moisture, dust, and high temperatures.
Additionally it has to prevent electromagnetic interference
with the aircraft's communication and navigation systems while
keeping size and weight of the system to a minimum.
Conceptual and detailed mechanical design of the primary
computer enclosure; engineering revisions of various existing
subsystems; design and development of supplementary power
supplies and a master power management circuitry for sensitive
cameras and navigation hardware; prototyping and ongoing
manufacturing of the product.
The seemingly conflicting demands were met through the
design of an innovative dual air path heat exchanger structure.
This enclosing structure also provides high structural strength
at low weight and achieves very effective EMI shielding. With
the inside cavity of the enclosure sheltered from dust and
moisture, the temperature rise of the inside air over the
outside air remains within 10 degrees Celsius at an average
heat dissipation of 500 Watts.
The documentation provided by KLN covers mechanical and
electrical systems, as well as subsystems and component details. This
documentation not only serves prototyping and KLN's ongoing
manufacturing, but also supports applications for supplementary
aircraft type approvals, as strict adherence to materials and
processing standards for the aviation environment is being kept.
Several systems have been sold in the meantime by AVCAN. They
are operating in helicopters, primarily to the benefit of
utility companies in maintaining timely and accurate
information about their power transmission assets.
