Thales Synthetic Vision System (SVS)
THALES SVS FOR HEAD-UP AND HEAD-DOWN DISPLAYS
Thales Synthetic Vision System provides pilots with clear and intuitive means of understanding their flying environment anytime, anywhere. It delivers new piloting interface by replacing conventional sky and ground depiction on Primary Fight Display (PFD) with a 3D representation of the external surroundings including terrain, obstacles and other topographical data or symbology features.
SVS to Increase Flight Safety
Thales Synthetic Vision System is a proven solution to increase pilots’ situational awareness and reduce workload, specifically during demanding situations like low visibility weather conditions, unfamiliar airports, high pitch rate phase of flight, specific procedures, terrain with relief… Pilots will more easily detect errors before the aircraft enters a dangerous situation.
As a consequence, it will increase overall flight safety, having for instance a significant impact on reducing the number of non-stabilized approaches and approach destabilization. It will help the crew in dynamic go around phase of flight and it will reduce the risk of Loss Of Control in Flight (LOC-I) and Controlled Flight Into Terrain (CFIT) for all kinds of aircraft.
Unusual Altitudes Management
In excessive Roll or Pitch, Thales SVS Solution consists of adding a classical Sky/Earth indicator superimposed on the SVS image with transparency. This helps pilots retrieve a safe attitude by focusing on pitch and roll information while keeping the SVS Image in the peripheral field of view. As the SVS is not desactivated, the pilot is not being destabilized.
