As part of the biological research project “Fruit Fly Lab” from NASA’s Ames Research Center, the Sunex Lens DSL215 has reached outer space. The Fruit Fly Lab provides a research platform aboard the International Space Station (ISS) for long-duration fruit fly experiments in space.
The French start-up Otonomy Aviation provides a better view and greater safety using the technology pioneer’s externally mounted high-definition camera currently used in business jets. They enable passengers to look at detailed shots of the landscape in HD that are taken by an external camera and shown on screens in the aircraft with mobile devices soon to follow. At the heart of the camera are a number of components from the German image processing expert FRAMOS. FRAMOS contributes to achieving HD quality and meeting the strict aviation regulations concerning hardware on-board aircraft with rugged and highly reliable products as the camera system developed by Otonomy must also withstand extreme temperatures.
