"This test brings us another step closer to enabling pilots to see in degraded visual environments. It represents a high point in DVE achievement, resulting from several years of 'backbone' technology development, combined with our FAA-certified synthetic vision product used in business and general aviation," Wiebold said.
"While the U.S. Army CH-47 Chinook and UH-60 Blackhawk appear to be near-term platforms for implementation, the ultimate aim is to give military operators — the broader U.S. Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force, coupled with NATO allies and commercial operators, flexibility in adopting synthetic vision-based offerings with different sensor packages appropriate to each customer's needs," Wiebold said.
Testing confirmed the ability to register and integrate multiple types of data including real-time millimeter wave sensor with pre-existing precision terrain data into the backbone for a realistic visual rendering of the outside environment, giving pilots the most up-to-date information available.
