A new display screen for HeliNav's wireless TrackMaster intelligent load sensor for helicopter operations has been launched by manufacturers Sensor Technology Ltd. TrackMaster constantly weighs a helicopter's underslung load, even if it varies during operations such as crop spraying, and uses this data stream to calculate flight and operational profiles. It is suitable for use in crop spraying, spreading and lifting operations.
The new HeliNav TrackMaster gives pilots an easy to use and accurate system for line guidance. It also automatically records all data for post-flight downloading so that detailed analysis of the flight and operational performance can be completed for accurate billing, maintenance scheduling etc.
The software comes pre-installed on a 7» rugged tablet computer, and integrates into existing GPS and spray control set-ups for immediate use. The computer is sunlight readable, and conforms to MIL-STD-810F and IP67 standards.
The intuitive software interface provides complete customisation of the display. The client provided maps can be imported into the system to provide the base map for the job.
