HUD Cameras: Get the Pilot’s View!
Head-Up Display Cameras with Latest CMOS Technology
We have decade-long intensive experience with cameras for aerospace applications of all kinds - especially with HUD cameras. We offer qualification of cameras up to DAL B RTCA/DO-254 und DO-178 C. We understand your requirements exactly!
Typical uses of Kappa fighter HUD cameras
- HUD cameras in training aircraft display the pilot’s complete view live on the accompanying trainer’s screen.
- HUD cameras connect to the existing recording system for debriefing / recording the pilot view for later flight evaluations and documentation.
With all the benefits of the latest CMOS generation!
Maximum performance of the new HUD cameras with high-quality CMOS sensors (e.g., IMX252):
- no blooming, no smear
- improved signal characteristics
Typical rugged specifications of Kappa HUD cameras:
- Shock/vibration/acceleration: MIL-STD-810G
- Temperature: -40°C up to +60°C
- EMC: MIL-STD-461F
- ESD: MIL-STD-464C
