HUD Cameras: Get the Pilot’s View!

Head-Up Display Cameras with Latest CMOS Technology

HUD CMOS Camera

We have decades of intensive experience with cameras for aerospace uses of all kinds - and especially with HUD cameras. HEad-up display cameras can be qualified up to DAL B RTCA/DO-254 und DO-178. We understand your requirements completely!

 

HUD camera for real-time pilot's view

HUD camera for real-time pilot's view

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 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.

 

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
