Securaplane Shows Next-Gen Security System

Securaplane Technologies (Booth No. 2157) of Tucson, Ariz. is showcasing at NBAA’12 its next-generation integrated security and camera system for business jets and highlighting OEMs that have recently selected its technology for security and flight operations.

Incorporating a suite of high-definition cameras, Securaplane’s security system delivers real-time surveillance remotely to the owner/operator. “Wherever you are in the world–in a hotel next to the airfield or at your home base on another continent–you can keep a watchful eye on your property,” said Steffen Spell, vice president of sales and marketing. “This is the first system that allows operators to view the perimeter of their aircraft remotely through their phones rather than having to download the video recording from an on-board recorder.”

Bombardier Aerospace has selected Securaplane’s security system for its Global 7000/8000, and Boeing will equip its 777-300ER with Securaplane’s ground-maneuvering camera system (GMCS), which will provide pilots with views of landing gear and ground conditions. Using a new lightweight camera, the GMCS presents images on a three-way split-screen flight-deck video display. Additionally, Embraer Defense and Security has selected Securaplane as its sole-source tier 1 supplier to provide a static inverter for its new KC-390 twinjet airlifter. Bolstering its international sales and support, Securaplane, a Meggitt company, has tapped Singapore’s Meggitt Aerospace Pacific as its Pacific Rim distributor and CASP Aerospace of Quebec as its Canadian distributor for power products.
