Kappa more than 40 years of experience in cameras and vision systems in rugged and certifiable aviation designs.

We focus on flight test cameras (FTI cameras), cameras for ED-155 compliant crash recording, cameras for space applications (cameras for launch vehicles and vacuum applications), HUD cameras for flight visualization, aircraft surveillance cameras (e.g., cargo, cabin/ cockpit door surveillance) and vision systems for air-to-air refueling.

Our qualified aviation cameras and system solutions are ready for certification to aviation norms and can be flexibly adapted to specific applications.

We are leaders in technology and meet all safety requirements on design assurance procedures in hardware and software development, qualification, and certification.

Flight Eye Camera Program

Kappa’s certifiable aviation cameras are installed in various aircraft platforms, e.g. helicopters, UAV, eVTOL, fighters, light aircraft, and research rockets. To be approved, these aircraft must undergo various tests: environmental tests, noise tests, performance tests, and more. Kappa’s COTS Flight Eye Family cameras are used for all FTI tasks, e.g. to monitor wing flap function in all adverse weather conditions, wind current behaviors in the wind tunnel, retrofitting with sharklets.
