Paris Air Show: New Technology from Honeywell Makes Flying Much Safer in Inclement Weather

Honeywell Aerospace is displaying its new EVS/SVS display at the Paris Air Show. The system combines digital images of the surrounding terrain from a database, which are captured by a camera on the planes nose cone. The system then takes those images and enhances them on a screen making it much easier for the pilot to see.

The images should make it much easier for pilots to land in safely even when its cloudy or dark. Aerospace Insight [1] notes the system will, “This overlays video from a FLIR camera under the nose under the headdown primary flying display and synthetic environment – fusing the virtual with the real to provide precision approach information, day or night in all weather.”
