All New Aerospace Camera Module, CAM2020

AD Aerospace are delighted to announce the completion of the prototype version of our in-house new aerospace camera module, CAM2020. Images of the prototype module can be viewed below.

CAM2020 is a new core video engine developed by AD Aerospace from the ground up for aerospace use. The ¼” image sensor features over 120dB’s of dynamic range, allowing CAM2020 to perfectly expose even the most challenging scenes ensuring that threats are reliably detectable.

The Module also has a built-in dewarping engine, allowing highly distorting lenses to be corrected, increasing installation flexibility.

The new aerospace camera has single-ended analog video output in either NTSC or PAL and a High Definition Digital (BT.470) output is being developed.

CAM2020 will be available in colour or monochrome variants with the aim being to implement the module into the AD Aerospace analog camera range which includes the FV-0410, FV-0411, and FV-0413 products.

The next steps will be for AD Aerospace to submit the LRU for external qualification to DO-160G for use inside the cabin or cargo areas of fixed-wing and rotary wing aircraft up to 45,000 ft.

It is the hope for CAM2020 to also be available as a miniature standalone imaging module for OEM integration. CAM2020 comes with an extended input voltage range from 5-32V and protection directly in the module itself.
