Global ePoint Gets STC For Cameras On All 737 Aircraft

Cockpit Door Surveillance For 48-Percent Of Boeing Fleet

Global ePoint a innovative developer and manufacturer of homeland security solutions for aviation and law enforcement as well as financial, retail and industrial applications, Tuesday said its AirWorks Division has received a new FAA Supplemental Type Certificate for its Cockpit Door Surveillance System (CDSS), which now spans the entire family of Boeing 737 aircraft (737-200 through 737-900) with two configurations.
There are some 4,597 Boeing 737s flying worldwide- ranging from the 737-200 through 737-900 - which represents 48 percent of total Boeing aircraft flying today. It also noted 1,571 of these 737's are operating within U.S. airlines

The original AirWorks Cockpit Door Surveillance System previously offered on 737-300 and 737-500's consisted of two 6.4-inch touch-sensitive monitors, a system controller and one camera mounted directly outside the cockpit door - with two more cameras located in the forward galley (and up to 16 cameras throughout the aircraft overall). Cockpit monitors were located to the side and just forward of the pilots seated positions. This standard system configuration is currently installed and flying on over 100 Boeing 737 aircraft.

AirWorks has designed and introduced a new optional "single-monitor" 5-inch touch-sensitive system that installs in the overhead panel directly between the two pilots. The new condensed configuration allows either pilot to utilize the same monitor or to control the camera from either pilot position - and utilizes the same System Controller and cameras as in previously delivered 737 systems.

"Our continual investment in the CDSS Cockpit Door Surveillance System and its flexibility, and now, in these multiple applications as well, provides AirWorks the ability to meet any requirement for any model aircraft built by the Boeing or Airbus companies," said Ricky Frick, President of Global ePoint's Aviation Division. "It allows us to immediately move forward with a customer without the barrier of new designs for installation or certification requirements."

"We have made this commitment to ensure that any mandate or requirement - by any regulatory agency anywhere in the world -- can immediately be satisfied with our product and certification."
