The SC240ML computer is mounted in the cockpit of the helicopter behind the pilot's seat. A high-precision GPS antenna is mounted on the tail of the helicopter with the Scanning Laser and IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) mounted under the aircraft. It also connects to a sunlight readable display for the operator interface and control functions. The unit is completely sealed and operates with no moving parts using a passive cooling system. The solid-state drives are removable allowing convenient transfer and management of mapping data as well as simplified system maintenance and upgrades.
