EnsoMOSAIC camera system has been operational more than two decades and has proven to be reliable remote sensing package to quickly collect and process aerial imagery. EnsoMOSAIC flight control system integrates aircraft position with planned flight lines and triggers the camera compensating for aircraft movement.

Complete EnsoMOSAIC system contains everything (except the aircraft) for operational aerial imaging: EnsoMOSAIC aerial survey system overview

EnsoMOSAIC hardware can be carried by a single person and installed into an aircraft in ten minutes. No gyrostabilized heavy mount is needed; instead the camera can be attached directly over an aircraft belly hole or into an external gimbal or pod. EnsoMOSAIC imaging system is compatible with all common aircrafts, including all Cessna, Piper and Robinson models. EnsoMOSAIC hardware is available at different accuracy levels, according to the requirements of the client. The system does not require a GNSS base station, these accuracies can be achieved anywhere with flight hardware only:

    LEVEL 1
    LEVEL 2
    LEVEL 3
