SOMAG AG Jena’s GSM 4000®, the flagship of SOMAG's airborne product line, is part of Diamond Aircraft's brand new DA62 MPP SurveyStar. In the new Special Mission Aircraft, the survey sensors as well as the Gyro Stabilization Mount are integrated into a hatch inside the aircraft cabin replacing the right-hand operator seat. The single-seat operator configuration offers the possibility to integrate larger, more capable sensors and to provide a wider selection of sensor applications that were once limited to larger aircraft platforms only.
The versatility of the GSM 4000 makes the gimbal the perfect complement for a variety of state-of-the-art sensors such as Vexcel's large format aerial camera series, as well as Specim's hyperspectral sensors or Riegl's airborne laser scanning systems. Regardless of which sensor is chosen, the GSM 4000 compensates for aircraft motion and vibration and precisely stabilizes the sensor for significantly improved geospatial data collection and mapping.

In addition, sensors can also be accommodated in the nose pod of the DA62 MPP. The multi sensor setup allows for simultaneous data acquisition. The new aircraft thus provides a high degree of flexibility for customers, offering strong and modern aerial survey and mapping configurations.
