Synthetic Vision System

Providing improved situational awareness of aircrew operating by day or night and in all visibility conditions.

SVS uniquely blends:

  • Sensor data, such as video provided by our Brightnite multi-spectral FLIR-CMOS sensor
  • Terrain and cultural feature taken from pre-loaded databases
  • On-board mission management information, such as routes, waypoints, areas to avoid
  • Flight information and aircraft warnings
  • Aircraft protection system warnings

Providing a virtual 3D landscape that is presented to the pilot on Ferranti Technologies’ advanced helmet mounted, wide field of view display solution. This allows the aircrew to remain heads-up and eyes-out, while flying in the most challenging of operational and piloting environments. SVS supports unique capabilities, such as Ferranti Technologies’ 3D Conformal Symbology (3DCS) system that is used to assist helicopter aircraft to land in degraded visual environments.

Benefits:

  • Enhances the ability to operate 24/7 regardless of weather or light conditions
  • Supports stealth operations by providing an intuitive display of mission and flight data in the aircrew sight line
  • Enhances probability of mission success and improves flight safety by allowing aircrew to remain constantly heads-up and eyes-out
  • Intuitive piloting thanks to the blend of sensor and terrain data
  • Integrates with missile warning systems
  • Overcome Low Visibility Landing/Brownout/Whiteout problems
  • Low latency tracking of both pilots, line of sigh using a non-gimballed sensor architecture
  • Can be integrated into helmet display and tracking systems
