FE-320 - The First all-in-one Video Imaging kit for Flight Test Instrumentation Purposes

The Full HD Flight Eye Camera Kit FE 320 has been developed in close cooperation with major OEM aviation clients, so we could totally focus on the customer requirements and tasks from the beginning. The result is a very expandable modular design for maximum flexibility on-site: just plug the modules together as needed with no preparation required. The system is designed to fit perfectly into an Ethernet-based FTI architecture with PTP time stamp at source.

Connect to an MVCRE-8 module to record on with the MDR series of flight data recorders.
