Tucson, Arizona – Securaplane Technologies, a wholly owned subsidiary of Meggitt PLC, announces that it has recently completed an STC to install its industry leading HD cameras into the G350, G450 and G550 aircraft. This STC provides Gulfstream operators with a unique ability to retrofit their standard definition cameras and equipment due to Securaplane’s similar design characteristics. The HD CMX camera system is a direct form, fit and function for the standard definition Securaplane camera system already installed on hundreds of Gulfstream aircraft.
The CMX-HD cameras from Securaplane offer multiple functions for aircraft including: inflight entertainment, situational awareness and gear position viewing. Available for installation on the vertical fin or belly fuselage, the camera’s lightweight and aerodynamic design incorporates a heated sapphire glass window for exceptional imaging performance. The camera has been tested to ensure that it can withstand all of the severe environmental conditions that airplanes face.
The resolution and glass that Securaplane uses are crucial to this differentiated technology. Securaplane’s HD cameras utilize an industry leading 1080 p resolution and are enclosed in a heated sapphire glass. This allows for rapid demisting and defrosting, yielding camera use in the coldest and most rugged ambient conditions.
