Guidance Systems

Satloc G4

The Satloc G4™ is the most complete and advanced aerial guidance system for aerial applicators. Satloc G4 is built with the top-of-the-line processing power of Intel® Dual-Core™ i7 processor and includes Windows®7 64-bit operating system.

The Satloc G4 features a new 9-inch, 16:9 ratio touchscreen capable of providing faster video graphics as well as the latest in touchscreen technology. Use multi-touch gestures such as pinch-to-zoom, rotate and press and drag to access information. Experience improved connection speeds for downloading job and shape files and prescription maps. The Satloc G4 features video capabilities including Skype™ and Ethernet connectivity for cell-based modems. Background maps are available with Satloc G4 systems. Maps enhance flight navigation and confidence by allowing aerial applicators to view flight information such as spray, waypoints, and polygons on background maps.

Stay connected with HQ™, a real-time web-based asset tracking tool that allows companies to track the position and position-related data of aircraft and other assets, such as spotter vehicles and loader trucks.

The Satloc G4 system includes a 9-inch touch screen, CPU, A21™ antenna and external CAN lightbar.

Satloc Bantam

The Satloc Bantam provides state-of-the-art GPS guidance for aerial applicators. Available with AirTrac™ guidance software, the Satloc Bantam allows you to fly and spray precise patterns using constant rate flow control, reducing fuel, flying time, and application costs.

The Satloc Bantam lightbar guidance system features a real-time graphic moving map display that provides visual guidance, and shows key features such as swaths sprayed, field boundaries, skips and overlaps, mark points, waypoint and polygons. The AirTrac software allows you to track acreage sprayed, analyze log data, view range and bearing to remote points or fields, monitor application rates.

The Satloc Bantam includes a 7.0” touch screen, CPU with 2 USB drives and 2 GB USB stick, A21 antenna and external lightbar. Other screen options are available.

Flow Control

Intelliflow

Automatic Flow Control System

With the IntelliFlow™ control system on board, spray rates will be automatically controlled with an accurate constant flow or a variable rate based on prescription maps (PMAPs). The required flow rates can be pilot selected or PMAPs can be created by using MapStar® desktop software.

Applications include:

  • Aerial agricultural crop applications
  • Forestry applications
  • Demanding eradication suppression spray program
  • Size options include 1/2”, 3/4”, 1.5”, 2”, and 3” versions

The system consists of a controller, valve with motor, and meter with magnetic sensor. Multiple sizes and configurations can be chosen for the valve and meter.

IntelliGate

Deliver precise application with the solid state and microprocessor controlled IntelliGate™.

Our state-of-the-art controller includes many new features and improved repeatability accuracy. The controller is interfaced with a GPS airborne guidance system for constant rate output and the system has full support for variable rate based on prescription maps. Gate position will change automatically based on aircraft speed changes.

The system consists of a controller and display module (pictured above) and includes Hemisphere GPS Controller Software features system for use with hydraulic gates including Transland gates and Hatfield fire bombing gates.

Software

MapStar

MapStar® is a pre-application mapping and post-application analysis log replay software. MapStar allows you to import/export common GIS file formats, such as CAD DXF, MapInfo MID/MIF, and ESRI Shape files. In addition, you can view, analyze, and export log data. MapStar’s newest feature includes support for variable rate applications and prescription maps.

HQ

HQ™ is a real-time web-based asset tracking tool that allows companies to track the position and position-related data of aircraft and other assets, such as spotter vehicles and loader trucks. HQ provides instant data push/pull functionality. Get jobs out to the field instantly and digitally and have immediate access to logs and job status data. Realize easy data transfer with Wi-Fi, remote access for training, and visual and verbal communication with Skype, all in one central location.

The HQ web-based application stores all flight and asset information, allowing customers to view current flight data as well as all historical data from previously completed flights. Aerial application companies can also provide their customers the access to log in via the web interface to view spray on/off, spray rates, and latitude/longitude information to quickly analyze what jobs are being done and when.

Peripherals

Laser Altimeter

AgLaser units are compact, rugged, laser distance range finders which can be incorporated to function as an altimeter. Using time-of-flight technology, it measures the time taken for a very short pulse of infrared laser light to travel to a surface (ground or tree tops) and back. The distance to the target is calculated from the time taken to make the round trip.

These altimeters can interface with AgJunction products (M3, IntelliStar and G4). Information is recorded to the log and can be viewed on the lightbar or display.

Other applications include:

  • Continuous logged height information to determine distance over canopy for each swath
  • Terrain Profiling
  • Rate of decent monitor to reduce hard landings
  • Height change indicator for helicopters landing on moving vessels

AIMMS-30

AIMMS-30 is Aventech’s thrid generation wind measurement system which is capable of providing accurate GPS, inertial rates, air-data and meteorological data including:

  • Barometric (Static) Pressure
  • Air Speed (including TAS)
  • Angle-of-Attack (AOA)
  • Angle-of-Sideslip (AOS)
  • Temperature (OAT)
  • Relative Humidity

Perkins engine trend monitoring

Perkins Technologies specializes in the manufacture of Engine Condition Trend Monitoring (ECTM) systems for turbine and piston engine aircraft.

The Satloc G4 is compatible with the Perkins DAAM® (Data Acquisition Alarm Monitor) system, which caters to a wide range
of both fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft. The DAAM system can relay data to the G4 to record in the log or send real-time through the Satloc HQ web-based application.

Perkins Systems currently operate in a variety of aircraft in Australia, Canada, Costa Rica, New Zealand, and the United States.

The DAAM® system is:

• Reliable
• Durable
• Lightweight
• Tamper Resistant
• Quick and Easy to Install
