Otonomy Aviation’s wireless security system flies high to Aircraft Interiors

30.04.2010
Otonomy Aviation, a specialist in embedded electronics for the aerospace industry, will launch its PARABELLUM® wireless security system, as well as its CAMHD® 1080 range of digital cameras, at the Aircraft Interiors trade show in Hamburg, which will take place from 18 to 20 May 2010.

PARABELLUM® is a video security system for parked aircraft, which is fully DO 160-qualified. The system integrates the CAMHD® range of 1080 HD cameras, which offer entertainment services for business jets.

PARABELLUM® provides a comprehensive security perimeter – any motion, intrusion or impact will trigger an alarm. A dedicated camera records video of the area and allows the operator to view the footage from any remote computer or smart phone through the GSM/3G network, or via an optional satellite connection. Embedded proprietary motion-detection software provides the lowest false alarm rate available on the market.

The PARABELLUM® system is based upon six components. The PARABELLUM VCCU (Video Control and Communication Unit) represents the next generation of video control and communication systems, while the CAMHD-4S is a fully integrated airborne camera and motion-detection unit.

The WISE-PIR, a wireless motion-detection sensor, is located in the landing gear-wheel well, and will prevent any intrusion or object deposition thanks to its 180° coverage area. The WISE-SENS is composed of wireless doors and panel reed switch sensors, which are similar to traditional reed switch sensors, but are completely wireless.

The PARABELLUM CTI (Control Touch-screen Interface) is a cabin-mounted smart LCD touch-screen interface, which monitors the entire PARABELLUM security system. Finally, the CAMHD®-1 is a HD 1080 camera. The CAMHD-1, which can be tail- or belly-mounted, is a high-definition camera (up to 1080i), which is especially designed for aerospace applications. Its multi-format video output fits most common IFE installation methods – Ethernet, SD/HD-SDI, Composite or DVI. Its heated sapphire window provides high-quality images and a 92° standard horizontal field of view. Thanks to its multimega pixel sensors, different image ratios are also available, including 16/9 and 21/9. An internal illumination regulator allows the device to operate both in low light (up to 0.1 lux) and in high brightness.

Thanks to its wireless features and battery life of more than 30 days, PARABELLUM® is both lighter and less expensive to install than similar systems. PARABELLUM® weighs less than 5kg, as compared to other systems on the market, which usually weigh more than 15kg.

About Otonomy Aviation SAS

Otonomy Aviation, which is headquartered in Bordeaux (south-western France), is a leading specialist in embedded aircraft security thanks to its flagship PARABELLUM® video security system. PARABELLUM® has advanced technical features (security, video and RF) and offers both security features (intelligent video motion analysis based on a high detection level), and entertainment features (video of flight phases screened to passengers in the cabin).

Otonomy Aviation’s patented system for the aerospace industry is DO160/ DO178-qualified and is delivered with an EASA Form 1. The company provides full support and maintenance (PART 145) through its partner’s network.

Otonomy Aviation will be part of the French Pavilion at Aircraft Interiors, which will take place in Hamburg (in northern Germany) from 18 to 20 May 2010 (Stand 6B56I).

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
