TESTING AN AIRBORNE INERTIAL SURVEY SYSTEM FOR BLM CADASTRAL SURVEY APPLICATIONS IN ALASKA

An airborne inertial survey system is a helicopter mounted electromechanical device that is capable of continuously sensing changes in its own location, and capable of continuously displaying the coordinates and elevation of its instantaneous position. It is self contained, automated, and independent of any external signals, measurements, or data sources. The U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management has determined, after completing a series of field evaluation tests, that a commercially available inertial survey system, when mounted in a helicopter, is capable of performing some survey tasks to BLM specifications.
