1.11.6  Lack of Image Recording

The SR 111 cockpit was not equipped with an image recording device, nor was this type of device required by regulation.

Recently it has become economically realistic to record cockpit images in a crash-protected memory device. New "immersive" technology provides for economical single-camera systems that can capture a 360-degree panoramic view of the cockpit environment. Special playback software allows investigators to "immerse" themselves in the cockpit and virtually view the entire cockpit.

Such a capability could have been valuable during the SR 111 investigation; the investigation could have been expedited and potential safety action more easily identified.
