Britannia2000 is delighted to have been selected and contracted once again by Babcock (formerly Bond Air Services) for the supply of their Compact Airborne Mission Computer (CAMC) for Police Scotland. This follows Babcock’s selection of Britannia to supply the CAMC for the UK’s National Police Aviation Service (NPAS) in the upgrade of seven of their EC135 platforms.
Britannia2000 specialises in the design, development and manufacture of ISTAR and Communications systems. The CAMC, developed by Britannia2000, will form part of the Police Scotland mission system upgrade. Designed for civil and military applications on rotary and fixed-wing platforms, CAMC provides a variety of communication interfaces and accepts a wide variety of video formats, including full HD. It has been designed to run CarteNav AIMS software, including Moving Target Indication (MTI), at maximum efficiency.
CAMC provides multiple monitor outputs for up to three touch-screen displays. This feature helps to reduce operator workload and improve mission efficiency by task sharing between observers and operators. Pilots, for example, can view mapping displays whilst operators control the EO/IR turret and observers collate information on their screens.
Ralph Jones, Managing Director of Britannia2000, commented: “It is a tremendous credit to Britannia that once again, we have been selected to supply our CAMC for the Police in their mission system upgrades. We are extremely proud to be the Mission Computer of choice and to provide Police Scotland with the latest in airborne technology.”
