High Velocity Aerial Filming Like You’ve Never Seen Before

16 April 2016


This will probably make you dizzy so don’t so you weren’t warned! Aerial filming recently took a giant leap forward when Swedish aerial specialist, Peter Degerfeldt at Blue Sky  challenged Gyro-stabilized Systems in Grass Valley, US, to build a GSS 520 5 axis system that would produce rock solid images at a speed of more than 300 knots per hour. Blue Sky’s client, the Swedish company Saab Defence and Security, required high end motion and stills for their multirole fighter Gripen. Normally, all stabilization systems on the market are approved for helicopters, and thus a speed of maximum 125 knots per hour. Saab required at least 300 knots for their filming and stills projects. Here is the result – and it’s breathtaking.
