Aircraft Surveillance Cameras for Monitoring and Analysis

Cockpit Surveillance Cameras, Cabin Surveillance Cameras, Cockpit Door Surveillance Cameras for all Safety Requirements

Security requirements for modern aircraft have increased enormously in recent years. Aircraft video surveillance systems for monitoring and analyzing processes on board aircraft are among the key topics, particularly for cabin surveillance, cockpit and cargo surveillance, and cockpit door surveillance.  Based on the Flight Eye technology Kappa can offer cost-efficient camera solutions that meet all customer requirements in this area.


Cockpit Door Surveillance Camera

  • IP camera with streaming
  • EFB (Electronic Flight Bag) connection: Cameras with modified protocols and functions are displayed on a dedicated tablet. Administrative software to control up to 5 cameras (more on request) is provided.
  • NIR illumination integrated directly into the camera
  • Modifications tailored to your specific needs!

Cargo Surveillance Camera

  • Motion detection
  • Temperature -15°C up to +55°C

Cockpit Surveillance Camera

  • ED 112 certification, even suitable for use in crash recorder systems
  • Full HD resolution for recording instrumentation symbology in the cockpit
  • Optics angle modified for each cockpit
  • Integration of audio data from the external safety microphone with video data from the camera into a single stream that is sent to the crash recorder and recorded
  • Special function: mask generation option to blur out defined image areas (e.g., protection of pilot’s personal rights)
  • Camera has option to record separately to an integrated SD card, i.e., for training purposes
  • Adaptation to your specific application!

Cabin Surveillance Camera

  • Pinhole Lens
  • Automatic and flexible adaptation to changing light conditions
  • High sensitivity for dark cabins
  • Smart functions can be integrated, e.g., in the future live analysis of human behavior
  • Video compression (e.g., H.264), dual streaming available; low bandwidth required reducing load on networks
  • Network depending on the location (dedicated camera network or Ethernet (Fast or Gigabit) Network / IP Protocol Standard Network in new and future aircraft models
  • Smart Switch / fiber optic protocol transfer to recorder
  • Modifications tailored to your specific needs!
