Synthetic vision systems (SVS) deliver real-time, color, 3-D imagery of the terrain outside the aircraft to the pilot, delivering higher levels of safety and situational awareness. Operators of helicopters and business and general aviation aircraft are increasingly making the investment to equip their fleets with these state-of-the-art systems. The benefits are so pronounced, in fact, that some suppliers of these systems are setting their sights on the commercial aircraft market.

The systems are designed to reduce the pilots’ workload, allowing him or her to have a great deal of information in one location. Suppliers differ on whether that information is better presented on the head-up or head-down display, but the SVS systems are now being offered on nearly all aircraft builds, and also in some retrofit programs.

These systems are becoming the norm on a wide range of cockpits. As a result, FAA in 2006 commissioned RTCA Special Committee-213, Enhanced Flight Vision Systems/Synthetic Vision Systems (EFVS/SVS), to develop Minimum Aviation System Performance Standards (MASPS)-level guidance for SVS, EFVS, EVS and combined architectures to identify intended operations and systems architectures and to enable the development of minimum operational performance standards (MOPS).

Get your questions answered and discover:

  • What are the technology trends in synthetic vision systems?
  • What about enhanced vision systems?
  • What is the latest on the work of the RTCA SC-213?
  • What is next in terms of technology and capabilities on these systems? Will they appear on more airframes? Retrofits?
  • And more!
