Goodrich Corp. will supply its external video system for the Airbus A350 XWB, a contract estimated to generate more than $1 billion in original equipment and aftermarket revenue over the life of the program. Work will be performed by Goodrich's Sensors and Integrated Systems in Burnsville, Minn., and Toulouse, France. The system, which includes three externally mounted digital video cameras and two Concentrator-Multiplexer for Video (CMV) avionics modules, integrates all video information inside and outside the aircraft, processes it for display and sends it to the flight deck. The CMVs receive information from the ruggedized external video cameras, multiple internal cabin video sources and from the On-board Information System. The information is processed into high quality video images viewable by the flight crew over the flight deck displays.
