Paper Abstract

When using various 70 mm - 35 mm photographic cameras, digital, and analogue sensors in light aircraft, consistent vertical perspective manipulations are required. This is accomplished by a Robotic Imaging Station (RIS) (sometimes called `platform' in this paper) controlled manually or by a laptop computer, with aircraft navigation instrument interface capabilities. The prototype was built to maintain nodal point perspective as true to vertical as possible, on-line adjustment countering aircraft yaw, image motion compensation and vibration damping for high quality imaging. The platform is portable and varied cameras/sensors can easily be installed in a plug and play fashion.
