Boeing has selected
Goodrich Corporation to provide a Flight Deck Entry Video
Surveillance System for the new 787 Dreamliner. The system, offered
as option to 787 customers, will provide flight crews with a
complete view of the aircraft flight deck entry area in order to
enhance cockpit security and ultimately, overall aircraft safety.
The system includes video cameras which allow crews to see in total
darkness, a video server designed to interface with the aircraft's

surveillance system solutions supplier," said Jan Mathiesen, Vice
President, Goodrich Sensor Systems.
"Our electronic flight
bag and multi-function display video servers and camera imaging

and performance. This award follows others for similar video
surveillance solutions on the Boeing 737NG, 747-400 and 777
platforms," Mathiesen added.
This is the twelfth selection of Goodrich technology for the
Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Just recently Boeing awarded Goodrich
