Airborne Technologies


Airborne Technologies supplies high-end Airborne ISR Solutions for a wide range of Airborne fixed and rotary wing platforms. The unique combination of aviation engineering, IT and software engineering, flight operation and data processing lets Airborne Technologies take the lead among Airborne ISR turn-key providers. Our expertise is to modify aircraft and to design and integrate the mission architecture from the state-of-the-art ISR components such as EO/IR, Radar, Line of Sight Down- and Uplink, Satellite Communication, Augmented Reality Systems, SigInt and ElInt.

Surveillance Systems, transmitting more actionable data to both the crew and the ground units, are becoming more and more complex. Overriding aim of Airborne Technologies is to optimize the interaction of people and state-of-the-art technology. Our strategy is not only to deliver the hardware but also to realize the integration and thus to develop a tailor-made setting together with the customer. For Airborne Technologies it is a matter of course to support the customer even if the system has already been fielded in order to optimize its performance.

Our ISR Services include:



Setting into operation

We proactively support our customers through to the place of operation and assure local assistance until everything is set. We offer support in:

  • Setting up of a command center
  • Setting up of communication between ground station and aircraft, respectively aircraft and ground operation
  • Calibration of sensors

ISR Training

We are pleased to offer a complete Training Package covering training for pilots as well as for aircraft & sensor engineers and sensor operators.
Based on our experience gained through our own fleet of aircraft & sensor operations we are able to provide consultancy in respect of the syllabus, the number of trained persons and the duration of the training.

Managed service

Our worldwide network and access to former military and police pilots and operators allows us to support ISR services for police and military forces such as search and rescue, monitoring infrastructure or homeland security from surveillance by the hour up to full 24/7 ISR services such as border patrol and maritime patrol.

The 'surveillance by the hour' service is aimed at government departments, organisations and corporations that require low volume, seasonal or ad hoc aerial surveillance solutions.
Managed services can be applied for:

  • Day/Night Patrol
  • Search and Rescue (SAR)
  • Homeland Security
  • Monitoring of Critical Infrastructure • Reconnaissance
  • Border Patrol
  • Maritime/Coastal Patrol

Our ambition is to keep the communication lines open with all our customers in order to understand more about the operational requirements and to be able to propose upgrades and introduction of new features to ensure that the system performs optimally during field operation.

Airborne Technologies is pleased to get you ready for your mission. We take care about the integration of your sensor into your aircraft, about the certification according to European EASA standards, about the sensor calibration for your mission start and about training of your pilots, operators and data processing engineers. 

Since we are operating our own fleet of aircraft and sensors we fully understand your needs and concerns. We are happy to share our experience with you!

It can be a very long, expensive and resource-sapping process to get the final aircraft sensor package approved and operational. We take this burden off the client's shoulders and he stays concentrated on his business. Depending on the requirements of our customers’ project, Airborne Technologies has the ability to install sensor equipment into either fixed- or rotary-wing aircraft.

Airborne Laser Scanner
Airborne Laser Scanner applications represent the shape of the earth surface in an idealized way by a certain number of discrete points of known position and altitude. The applications and finally the products (e.g. digital elevation model) are today one of the standard products of land surveying.

Large Format Cameras
Large-format cameras produce digital frame images with image sizes of 50 megapixels and more. These cameras are fully stabilized by special mounts and can compensate fully the changes in the roll, pitch and heading of the survey aircraft.

Hyper Spectral Sensors
Hyper Spectral Sensors collect information as a set of 'images'. Each image represents a narrow wavelength range of the electromagnetic spectrum, also known as a spectral band. These images are combined to form a three-dimensional hyper spectral data cube for processing and analysis.

Thermal Cameras
Thermal camera systems are used in applications where temperature reading is essential. These systems are normally used to classify the temperatures of the detected “Hot spots”. Thermal mapping applications are becoming more important, as energy losses by heat dissipation are undesirable from both an economical and an ecologic point of view.

Airborne Geophysics Equipment
Airborne geophysics equipment include several different sensors such as Airborne Magnetometer, Gamma Ray Spectrometer and Gravimeter.

Our experience in the operation of our own fleet of aircraft and providing turnkey solutions makes us the first choice, if you are looking for a reliable partner for System Integrations for airborne surveillance & surveying.

It can be a very long, expensive and resource-sapping process to get the final aircraft sensor package approved and operational. We take this burden off your shoulders and cover all steps starting with the coordination of sensor and aircraft manufacturer over installation on site up to training of pilots, operators and processing engineers.

AIRBORNE TECHNOLOGIES Data Acquisition & Processing Department operates in the field of remote sensing and geophysics from aerial platforms using a large range of equipment like Laser Scanners, Hyperspectral Scanners, Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), Thermal-Cameras, Aeromagnetic sensors etc. to cover a wide range of applications depending on the requirements of our customers. By using the experiences of our multidisciplinary team of highly qualified engineers and a network of scientific partners, we are able to develop tailored solutions for each customer's needs. One of our specialties is the multi-sensor application with up to 6 sensors operating simultaneously in one flight.

AIRBORNE TECHNOLOGIES has the capability to supply huge amounts of geodata to the market due to manpower, technical equipment and our modern production center. The knowledge of our employees, the availability of different sensors, and expertise in data processing allows us to offer application to various business divisions.

Over the years AIRBORNE TECHNOLOGIES has executed numerous projects in different areas and for different customer groups. Below is a selection of these projects, mainly from recent years.
