The importance of validation
Before the camera prototypes can go into production, comprehensive test runs and quality assurance procedures are imperative. These measures include checking the image quality, the stability of the camera while the drone is flying, the damping of vibration and shocks, and much more. Systematic tests and validation ensure that the prototype complies with the requirements and also actually achieves the required performance.
Only once compliance is assured does the camera go into production. It is now necessary to draw up work instructions for the production department, production documents must be written and appropriate figures prepared, parts lists created for procurement, suitable suppliers selected, etc. A prerequisite for all these tasks is a high degree of teamwork, which is not always so easy.
