UTrack

Lead’Air has developed and sold high quality, robust, custom systems for various client applications for years and this new solution is no exception. The small form UTrack application is designed to be mounted on UAV, helicopter or fixed wing aircraft. The mount positions for the system are necessarily customizable because the world of aerial image capture has had a significant shift in acquisition platforms in the past year. With a size small enough to fit most professional UAV’s (unmanned aerial vehicles) this robust system is also capable of being tailored to almost any manned helicopter or fixed wing aircraft and flown without the need for a sensor operator, making the unit truly versatile for numerous applications.

Modular Design

The UTrack is created with the opportunity to customize your own solution. You may not need all of the components so it is offered in four different configurations:

  • UTrack Flight Management System for a fully autonomous FMS application. This system will work with your existing camera and IMU provided it can output a NMEA string of data. Allows for pilot only operation (no sensor operator required).
     
  • UTrack 2 Flight Management System including all of the components of the UTrack and an Integrated Applanix APX 15 IMU system.
     
  • UTrack 3 Flight Management System, including a fully stabilized mount customized to your specific single sensor. System will include an Applanix IMU providing a completely integrated autonomous acquisition platform.
     
  • UTrack 4 Flight Management System including all of the components of the UTrack 3 and a post processing computer from Stellacore Solutions designed to seamlessly and automatically process your raw data.
