Southeast Aerospace, a leading Aerospace solutions company, has received the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Supplemental Type Certificate (STC), number SA01055DE, for the installation of its sensor mount in the Cessna 206 aircraft.
Designed by Southeast Aerospace for the Cessna 206 aircraft, the sensor mount simplifies installation, which can be completed in less than one day with no changes or limitations to normal flight operations for payloads up to 70 lbs. The precision-machined sensor mount allows for payloads such as the Wescam MX-10 or FLIR 380HDc EO/IR to mount on the left side of the aircraft. The side-mount sensor is outside of the exhaust, with the optics just below the bottom of the aircraft for unobstructed views.
Southeast Aerospace’s mission-capable T206H was used for prototype installation and testing. The camera mount is currently being installed on a fleet of new aircraft for an ongoing prime contract with the U.S. Government.
