AD Aerospace signs LOI for COMAC 919 programme

AD Aerospace, part of AD Group, is very pleased to announce the signing of a Letter of Intent (LOI) with Shanghai Aero Measurement Controlling Research Institute (SAMRI) for the supply of security and safety video camera systems for the COMAC 919 aircraft, (SAMRI is an Enterprise of AVIC - Aviation Industry Corporation of China).

AD Aerospace and SAMRI will partner together to supply the Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China, Ltd. (COMAC) with various camera systems including Cockpit Door Surveillance Systems (CDSS) and a range of Video Monitoring Systems (VMS). The VMS options cover a Taxi Aid Monitoring System, a Cargo Monitoring System, a Cabin Monitoring System and an IFE Camera System.

"Video and camera systems are increasingly seen as both an efficient and effective way of improving aircraft safety and security." said Mr Luo Xue Ping, President of SAMRI. "AD Aerospace are acknowledged experts in this field and we are delighted to be working together on this project for the COMAC 919."

"We at AD Aerospace are very excited to be working with SAMRI, and building on our established relationships in China in providing video camera systems for the COMAC C919," said Mike Horne, Managing Director AD Aerospace. "We are honoured to be working on this new aircraft and look forward to a long and successful partnership with SAMRI."

The CDSS will be standard fit to all aircraft and consists of a series of cameras monitoring the cockpit door and adjacent galleys. It improves security around the cockpit door by allowing the pilots to visually verify who is requesting access to the cockpit and to check they are not under duress.

The Taxi Aid Monitoring System which is an option on the C919, is a series of cameras fitted to the outside of the aircraft which enhance the pilots' situational awareness whilst taxiing to help maintain the correct position of the aircraft on the taxi ways.

Other optional systems include a Cargo Monitoring System to allow the progress of loading / unloading to be easily determined and which acts as a deterrent against theft from passenger baggage or cargo, and for passengers the IFE Camera System gives them a birds eye view wherever they are sitting in the aircraft and the Cabin Monitoring System helps flight crew to monitor and control situations as they arise in the passenger cabin.
