Aircraft axes are defined according to international aviation convention; Veronte axes are drawn on Veronte box as defined in the “Hardware Installation” section of the manual (2.1).

It is not compulsory to install the autopilot in the platform aligned with the aircraft axes. There could be a rotation, for example, the box can have its X axis directed to one of the wings, like in the case of the figure shown as follows.
