ASU Adds Manned Aircraft Platform for OWLS 15 Jul, 15, Source: ASU

From the Airborne Law Enforcement Agency (ALEA) annual convention held in Houston Texas, Aviation Specialties Unlimited Inc., (ASU) announced the OWLS system is now being offered as an affordable gimbal for manned aircraft platforms. Originally designed to be lightweight for coupling with an aerial drone or unmanned aircraft, the OWLS system has proven to be rugged enough to be added directly to aircraft.

“Part of our goal at ASU is to develop versatile products that can be utilized in numerous platforms,” said ASU President Jim Winkel. “The OWLS is a prime example of that. We have had great feedback since we unveiled the OWLS system at the Helicopter Association International HELI EXPO annual convention. The next logical step for ASU was to offer the OWLS for both UAV and Aircraft use.”

OWLS is an affordable surveillance system that incorporates a high performance day/night imager with an option to image combine with an uncooled thermal camera. OWLS is ideal for platforms requiring a lightweight visible/infrared day/night imaging system.
