AOS Technologies

AOS Technologies is a leading supplier in the design, manufacture and integration of high-speed cameras and digital cameras.

AOS Technologies provides customers with state-of-the-art technology in digital camera technology for use in demanding applications, such as mounted in or attached to aircrafts or unmanned combat air vehicles (UCAV).

The company’s activities in the aeronautical industry started in 2002 when it designed a digital high-speed camera for recording store separation tests during test flights. AOS Technologies soon became a reputable supplier for many governmental organisations as well as providing a wide variety of digital imaging systems to a commercial manufacturer.

The design of high-speed digital cameras and digital cameras for long-time recording systems in airborne systems is now AOS’s core competence. The camera designs meet MIL 810 and MIL 461 standards, and are tested by accredited test laboratories to ensure high-quality standards.

For special applications, we can provide turnkey solutions for video recording of specific tests or provide custom or semi-custom specific solutions such as data transfer via telemetry system to ground stations, including data processing in camera and bandwidth management for connection to telemetry systems.

High-speed digital camera systems for airforce applications

AOS’s high-speed airborne cameras have a reputation for reliable functionality under the most severe conditions. The high-speed cameras can record multiple sequences, store data in the cameras’ built-in non-volatile memory and provide data for later motion analysis in the lab. The cameras are all designed to meet MIL 810 standards and are built to meet the challenges of in-flight image data recording.

Digital camera for in-flight image data recording

AOS’s digital cameras provide superb specifications for mounting inside aircrafts. All cameras are available with different types of MIL-specified connectors for ease of integration. The cameras comply with GigE Vision standards and can record in standard speed ranges as well as in high-speed camera mode.

High-speed digital video recorder for aircraft

AOS’s high-speed streaming system provides full coverage with high frame rates of a complete mission. The data are streamed in high speed to a controller and are ready for analysis either after the mission on the ground, or for transfer via interfacing to the onboard telemetry link to ground station.

High-speed digital camera integration

For many applications, high-speed cameras need to be adapted for specific aircraft. AOS provides a special enclosure for cameras, as well as specific software functions, and an extension of functionality that is vital for the test set-up. In addition, AOS can support these solutions throughout their full lifecycle.

Customised in-flight image data solutions for aircraft

Based on its vast experience and involvement in many projects, AOS can offer a specific solutions system for high-speed image camera needs. Customised cameras can make an impact in acquiring in-flight image data , offering the perfect fit for each application, while remaining economical.

AOS has met the needs of many leading manufacturers for high-speed recordings of events during flights.

Standard data and communication standards

AOS cameras comply with IRIG-106 Chapter 10 data format as well as GigE Vision standards. Cameras compliant with these standards are much simpler to support and certify for quality assurance, as required under calibration procedures in ISO 9000.
