Star SAFIRE® HD Family
The First True Family of High Definition Imaging Systems
A Common Connection for an Uncommon Family
Introducing the Star SAFIRE HD Family – the first true family of interchangeable and digital, high definition, single LRU imaging systems providing a full spectrum of ISR capabilities.
Each product within the Star SAFIRE HD Family shares the same installation hardware, and the same user interface hardware and software. No matter which system is ultimately chosen, they will all easily install and operate. The FLIR Common Interface makes this possible.
FLIR Common Interface
Eliminating proprietary interface cabling, the FLIR Common Interface relies upon commercial interface standards, connectors and wiring. This simpliﬁes installation between family systems, exterior systems (aircraft power, video display, recording devices, controllers) and other devices that utilize commercial/industrial standards (moving maps, nav systems, radars, GPS, etc.).
All turret-to-aircraft interfaces are based on commercially available standards such as SMPTE 292M, Ethernet, ARINC 419/429, RS-232/422/485, MIL-STD-704D and MIL-STD-1553.
Commercially Available Connectors and Wiring
The connectors and wiring are all commercially available items, i.e. MIL-D-38999 Series III connectors, and common aircraft standard wiring loom materials.
Single LRU Conﬁgurations
Each product in the Star SAFIRE HD Family is available in a single LRU conﬁguration. These systems all eliminate the need for external electronics or junction boxes for complete ease of installation.
