HEADS UP

Jetgala - - WINGS -

While syn­thetic vi­sion is be­com­ing stan­dard among new air­craft, Dassault Avi­a­tion has lever­aged its mil­i­tary jet ex­pe­ri­ence to in­tro­duce a head-up dis­play (HUD) that in­te­grates syn­thetic and in­frared vi­sion. The new Fal­conEye Com­bined Vi­sion Sys­tem al­lows pi­lots to look through their HUDs to fo­cus on the run­way while si­mul­ta­ne­ously view­ing de­pic­tions of key ob­sta­cles such as moun­tains, other air­craft on the run­way — and even un­in­vited an­i­mals. This com­bi­na­tion of tech­nolo­gies sub­stan­tially im­proves sit­u­a­tional aware­ness and thus safety. Low-light or foggy op­er­a­tions, es­pe­cially in moun­tain­ous re­gions, are es­pe­cially safer with the use of Fal­conEye.
