Gyron & NASA

By Wolfe Air / Gyron

YUMA, AZ – April 14, 2010  WOLFE AND COMPANY FILMS CREW AND GYRON EAGLE PULL OFF ANOTHER FLAWLESS MISSION FOR NASA AND ATK.

When a giant Air Force C-17 cargo plane, laden with a 77,000 pound mockup of the Ares rocket dropped the payload to test its parachute deployment, the Wolfe And Company team captured the sequences in high-definition. The drop was made from 24,500 feet and tracked by the Gyron Eagle, a highly modified, one-of-a-kind Cessna 337. The Eagle was equipped with a state of the art Gyron gyrostabilized gimbal and zoom lens which provided incredibly sharp, stable images for NASA engineers to study. The resulting footage is exceptional – every detail of each chute deployment is perfectly drawn. No other aerial system is capable of providing the necessary “look-up stability” to capture a shot like the Gyron delivered.

A full-scale mockup of the next generation Mars Lander, suspended from Wolfe Air’s helicopter was test flown on the ramp of the Wolfe Air facility at Hawthorne Airport on Thursday. The next landing on Mars will be accomplished by a hovercraft setting the Rover gently onto the surface of the red planet. Airbag “crash” landings are now a thing of the past.
