UTC Aerospace Systems has been selected to provide the ground manoeuvring camera system (GMCS) and proximity sensor data concentrators (PSDC) for Boeing’s 777 (pictured).
The GMCS enhances situational awareness by providing pilots video and camera views of the nose gear, main gear and wingtip areas to aid in taxiway manoeuvring. The system also offers a unique passenger experience by providing a wingtip to wingtip view from the aircraft's vertical stabiliser through in-flight entertainment (IFE) video. The system includes high definition digital video cameras as well as a taxi camera interface unit.
