2 Image Capturing & Sensors
Film Painting Our Eyes The perception and recording of images has intrigued mankind for ages. With our eyes, we can perceive scenes with rich details in shade and color over a high range of local intensities within each scene due to the logarithmic response of our photo receptors providing an instantaneous dynamic range of about 100dB. Film provides this pseudo eye-like, pseudo logarithmic response over a range of less than 80dB, Most CCD sensors are more sensitive than film, their response is not eye-like but linear with a dynamic range of about 50 dB. CCD Sensor HDRC® - More than you can see

3 HDRC® VGAx Features – the 7th Generation
Most advanced CMOS technology: 0.25µm, 2-poly, 4-metal, 3.3 volt Resolution: 768 x 496 pixels Very high dynamic range: >160db intra-frame and inter-frame Frame rate: 30 frames per sec Very high speed: 80ns per pixel Random access: RAM-like, sub framing, sub sampling Eye-like vision: Log compression per pixel Constant contrast resolution: 1.5% intra-frame over more than 4 decades of intensity Imager sensitivity: 20 milli lux Digital output: 12-bit output Source: IMS Vision & Gevitech

High dynamic range and logarithmic compression per pixel captures MAximum ImaGe Information Contents (MAGIC) Wide horizontal field and high pixel resolution Image processing software for flawless and non-contact based aircraft detection One Camera setting for operation in rainy, foggy, snowy, or extremely sunny weather conditions Innovative three-dimensional aircraft detection technology – True 3D for Aircraft Type (A320 or B737) or Sub-type (B or B ) Aircraft outline detection not affected by partially covered aircraft parts (PBBs, vehicles or tugs) Combination of sensors to suit requirements like parallel, angular or curved guidance lines or mix or complex layouts Archiving of final shots - 16 images of docking sequence or complete docking procedure video Pre-calibrated system for quick and easy commissioning Integrated Gate Surveillance capability No limitation of aging

9 3D Aircraft Detection, Identification & Guidance
Each model includes all details for reliable identification The image processor creates a dynamic reference template by projecting the 3-D model on the front side of the virtual transparent screen Remaining information can be seen as a 2-D projection of the real aircraft on a back of a virtual transparent screen The video camera acquires a 2-D picture of the approaching aircraft and surrounding area Detecting the aircraft using the contrast to the background Templates of each Aircraft is stored in the Image Processing Unit (3-dimensional) Distance calculation by comparison of the dimensions (e.g. length of the wings, diameter of the engines etc.) Detection of Aircraft Type/Sub-Type by comparison of the aircraft template with the actual image Software processes the picture to remove any irrelevant information The system incorporates 3-D aircraft models for each expected aircraft By adjusting 3-D model in all directions, the image processor matches the two templates in real time

14 HDRC® Video Docking

15 Benefits of Video System
Safe and Reliable Docking – Reliable operation in all weather conditions unlike other systems that only scan a narrow angle and need clear line of sight, video sensors continuously scan the complete gate area for maximum safety Performance – Delivers stop position and azimuth accuracy enabling aircrafts to stop on designated stop point or close Flexibility – Can be installed on terminal façade or pole/mast at heights 4~22M, independent of guidance line or video sensor separately, according to apron requirements, use more than two cameras to provide guidance for complex layouts Pre-calibrated System – Reduced installation and commissioning time (<2 hours per unit) Reduced Total Cost of Ownership - Fewer systems required on gates with multiple centerlines, due to wide-angle LCD display and use of video sensors for parallel or angled or curved guidance lines Reliability – Extremely long life – MTBF A-VDGS(45,056 hours*), Video Sensor (294,000hours) Minimal Maintenance – Video sensor works without any life-time limitation or mechanical aging, no moving parts or motors maximizing reliability and minimize maintenance *Normal Variant
