The new flexible and compact pod features Alticam video processing (AVS) with object tracking, electronic de-jitter, and numerous video functions. The system also includes a moving map to improve operator situational awareness. The Alticam Pod is designed as a test vehicle for operation of HoodTech Vision (HTV) payloads in fixed-wing aircraft, and as a rugged vehicle for manned, fixed wing application of various HTV systems.

HoodTech’s new Alticam Pod has been used on the Cessna 182 and is readily adaptable to other general aviation aircraft, aerostats, and unmanned aircraft. For manned aircraft, the pod includes an Alitcam control console with an intuitive touch screen operator terminal.

The Alticam Pod supports HTV stabilized imaging system payloads which include a range of accessories available to meet customer requirements. Options include the Alticam Vision Network (AVN) card which provides H.264 encoding with KLV metadata. AVN delivers full motion video in IP formats for digital downlink to the customer’s ground station. HoodTech Vision has demonstrated this downlink capability on a Persistent System’s Wave Relay™ mobile ad-hoc network fabric.
