British Aerospace (Systems and Equipment) (BASE) and DM Aerospace, a division of Dedicated Microcomputers Group, are to develop an aircraft video flight recorder which will provide a crash protected environment for the digital recording of video data from the flight deck or from external cameras.

An MoU by the two companies brings together the complementary expertise of BASE, with the latest solid-state, crash-protected memory technology, and DM Aerospace, with its miniature ruggedised camera technology.

Full colour video images will be digitised, compressed and then recorded into a solid state memory module, fully crash protected to the equivalent of ED56A plus one hour fire test.
