CHARLOTTE, NC-Goodrich Corp., supplier of systems and services to aerospace, defense and homeland security markets, has been selected by Airbus to supply the external video system for the new A350 XWB commercial aircraft. Goodrich expects the award to generate more than $1 billion in original equipment and aftermarket revenue during the life of the program. Work will be performed by Goodrich’s Sensors and Integrated Systems teams in Burnsville, MN, and Toulouse, France.

The external video system integrates all video information inside and outside the aircraft, processes it for display and sends it to the flight deck. The system includes three externally mounted digital video cameras and two concentrator-multiplexer for video (CMV) avionics modules. The CMVs receive information from the external video cameras, multiple internal cabin video sources and an on-board information system. The information is processed into high-quality video images viewable by the flight crew over the flight deck displays.
