LCAS’ fully certified (Supplemental Type Certificate) fuselage-mounted transition and boom assemblies carry the magnetometer sensor and requisite electronics. The forward part of the boom system contains the provisions for the magnetometer sensor, the mid section houses the amplifier and flux gate mount. The orientation of the sensor is adjustable, to provide optimum coupling with the earth’s magnetic field. This innovation eliminates the traditional towed bird system and offers significant advantages in data quality, pilot work load reductions, survey flight efficiencies, and safety in all types of terrain.
This modification consists of a nose boom assembly mounted below the body of the fuselage and extends out forward of the main rotor diameter. The nose boom assembly consists of a composite mount assembly and 3 composite boom sections.
The mod kit includes all the necessary doublers, support assemblies and attaching hardware.
