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: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
