Abstract
We present a new video sensor for multimeasurements in an aircraft cargo compartment called a video sensor unit (VSU). This sensor, based on CCD technology, operates in the near IR (NIR) spectral band to measure temperatures due to overheating and fire events. After a characterization of the measurement chain, a radiometric model is applied to the VSU, enabling the measurement of temperatures ranging from 350 to 900 °C with a noise equivalent temperature difference (NETD) lower than ±8 °C. In the same spectral band (NIR), the VSU can also detect smoke and 3-D load displacements. The geometric model of the VSU is described and the associated calibration procedure is presented.
