Typical installation into skin & rib structures

 

Installation into hulls constructed of skin & rib require the use of an extension plate (item 3 above). In order to machine process the upper surface of this plate an impression of the hull contour must be established. A procedure has been designed and developed to capture the contour in the field. The surface mapping guide is available. Contact us to request the fixturing kit.

The T6-200 wiring harness is routed along the existing airframe wiring harness where the power lead terminates to the circuit breaker console, the trim control switch terminates to a console or instrument panel (with pilot access) and the video output lead to the flight display.

With the extension plate fastened in position on the hull, the transition plate can then fasten to its base. The CPC and SMA connectors are screwed into the camera receptacles where the camera assembly is then secured to the transition plate with 8 screws and washers.

All parts, materials and detailed installation manuals are available for previously approved installations (STC'd or field approved).

For aircraft without previous approvals we can assist you with technical installation support upon request.

 
Typical doubler for skin and rib installs

Sikorsky S-76, more details here
1- Existing airframe stringers, LH-RH.
2- Airframe skin.
3- Existing rivets, LH-RH.
4- Shim, 2024-T3 ALU, thickness determined to off-set stringer thickness to airframe skin (0.063" thick for S-76 models).
5- Internal Doubler, 2024-T3 ALU, designed to capture both LH-RH stringers (0.040" thick for S-76 models).
6- Additional rivet pattern to capture internal doubler, shim and airframe skin together.
