Helicopter industry leader Eurocopter approached Appareo Systems to develop a next-generation lightweight flight data monitoring device to be installed in their popular AS350 model helicopters. Building on the success of the ALERTS system, Appareo developed the Vision 1000 – a truly revolutionary device incorporating the proven inertial sensing technologies of earlier ALERTS products with high-resolution cockpit image and intercom/ambient audio capture.
The Vision 1000 weighs only nine ounces and installs easily into any type of aircraft, requiring only power and ground to function. As a self-contained device, the Vision 1000 doesn’t require complicated and costly integration with existing avionics.
The Vision 1000 is now installed as a standard component on all US-produced AS350 aircraft and Eurocopter is currently planning to extend Vision 1000 installation on several of their other light helicopter models.
