Seeing Through the Weather: Enhanced/Synthetic Vision Systems for Commercial Transports 921973
Commercial air carriers have long desired an aircraft system which would permit airport operations in very poor visibility conditions. Enhanced/synthetic vision systems, incorporating forward looking sensors and head-up displays, offer this ability. This paper discusses the potential benefits of enhanced/synthetic vision systems as well as their various levels of integration and associated capabilities possible. Work at Douglas Aircraft on enhanced/synthetic vision systems is also noted.
