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

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: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...

Im Focus: New Products - Highlights of COMPAMED 2016

COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.

In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...

Im Focus: Ultra-thin ferroelectric material for next-generation electronics

'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.

Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
