For piloting UAVs (HALE/MALE), two highly robust Full-HD cameras mounted on the outside of the aircraft are used: one tail fin camera for flight control and one nose wheel camera for safely controlled landing. H.264-compressed video data are transmitted to the ground station. Data compression takes place in the camera itself, requiring very little transmission bandwidth. Moreover, since it requires no further electronics, this procedure saves both space and cost.
Kappa UAV control cameras are designed for integration into collision avoidance systems.
Kappa offers special Full-HD camera modules with high-resolution optics for payload integration (gimbal). These cameras, with various FoVs, deliver razor-sharp images even at distances of over 15 km for HALE/MALE.
With our many years of experience developing and manufacturing cameras for aviation requirements, we offer you the highest level of safety for your application. Kappa is your expert for UAV / UAS cameras.
