F-16C/D Cockpit Camera (CCAM)

 
 
 
 

The Photo-Sonics F-16C/D Cockpit
Camera (CCAM) is a
 fully-qualified
HUD camera for the F-16C/D aircraft.

 

P/N: 93-4300-503

 
     
 

This camera has excellent environmental characteristics and superb image quality with high reliability ( >22,000 MTBF). The camera is lightweight and designed around single-unit construction. It is easily installed and aligned in the aircraft in less than one hour. The camera incorporates extensive filtering to provide noise-free images using 115VAC, 400Hz, 3 phase aircraft power in accordance with MIL-STD-704A.

This camera will operate on both configurations of Wide-Angle Head-up Displays assemblies presently being used on the F-16C/D.

The camera assembly is mounted on the HUD in front of the combiner.  In this position, the camera records only the outside world.  The HUD symbology is electronically overlaid on the camera video in the HUD Electronic Unit. A precision periscope/lens assembly permits accurate boresighting with the aircraft computer resulting in minimal piper-to-target alignment errors, and camera coefficients are provided to ensure accurate alignment/calibration to the HUD.

The camera can replace either a one-, or two-piece HUD camera assembly.  If the camera is used in an aircraft configured to accept a two-piece camera, an interface cable must also be installed in the aircraft. This cable is not necessary for an aircraft configured for a single-piece HUD camera. The cable can be purchased from Photo-Sonics or a cable and tray from Lockheed.
