Elbit Systems to develop a Combined Vision System (CVS) Integrated into the Primary Flight Display for Commercial Aviation
The combined display will be offered as a software upgrade, allowing real-time visualization on aircraft primary displays
Elbit Systems, April 26, 2017 - Elbit Systems is offering a Combined Vision System (CVS) for primary flight displays, including both video feed from the Company’s certified ClearVision Enhanced Vision System (EVS) product line and from the Synthetic Vision System (SVS), allowing intuitive flight visualization in degraded weather conditions.
The CVS application blends SVS, real-time video and symbology, providing a 3D perspective view of the topography, including stationary objects such as airports, airport runways and helipads.
The image on the primary flight display is generated in real time from several database sources, including Elbit Systems’ EVS / HeliEVS, providing a remarkable video mixed with thermal imaging and additional cameras.
Yoram Shmuely, General Manager of Elbit Systems Aerospace Division said: “Elbit Systems holds vast experience with SVS for head-up and wearable displays. Our innovative multi-spectral EVS products are the technologies behind this innovative application. Based on thousands of flight hours onboard numerous platforms, we are now able to provide these groundbreaking visualization capabilities to existing aircraft displays, supporting commercial pilots with a completely intuitive full display of the flight path.”
Elbit Systems’ CVS using Head-Up Display (HUD) was certified in 2016 on the Dassault Aviation Falcon Jet family. In December 2016, the FAA has issued a final rule, effective March 2017, affirming Enhanced Flight Vision Systems (EFVS) flight for approach and landing. Recent advancements in the field, combined with ongoing new regulation, provide pilots with increased safety and grants OEM’s an operational new credit, answering rising market needs.
