External Aerospace Camera Assembly (FV-0346)

AD Aerospace’s FV-0346 External Aerospace Camera Assembly is designed to be used external to an aircraft flying up to 50,000 feet, and is sealed.

The assembly is based on the AD Aerospace FV-0315 external camera. This camera provides quality video images in the harsh environment experienced by the external surfaces of an aircraft. Internal misting and icing is avoided as the unit is hermetically sealed and dry nitrogen purged. The FV-0315 is a very popular product for installation on helicopters. Such that it is currently used by both Airbus Helicopters and Leonardo.

The assembly window is aerodynamically shaped. This enables water droplet removal as the aircraft moves in the air stream. Moreover, it has no “edges” to allow water droplets to be trapped.

A 10W Kapton heater is fitted internally to the assembly window. This also allows for de-misting and de-icing functions.

The assembly is attached to the aircraft through mounting screws, and a cable is plugged in to a skin mounted connector which supplies power and provides the video connection.

The unit is currently installed for video surveillance of the Main Deck Cargo Door (MDCD) on the Boeing 767 KC46 Pegasus Tanker. The design has the lens option for satisfying the requirements for viewing the Main Deck Cargo Door and surrounding area.
