Flight Operations Track
This presentation will familiarize the audience with a new safety enhancement that is coming to the helicopter world and to demonstrate the application of this technology in air medicine, firefighting, and law enforcement. Although we currently have night-vision devices and dashboard-mounted synthetic vision systems (SVS), this new version will add real-time sensors (the enhancement) to a helmet-mounted display. The resulting “view” will allow pilots to see through all types of obstacles in the degraded visual environment, including fog, snow, dust, and clouds.
At the end of this presentation, the participant will be familiar with the new ESVS technology and its practical applications in air medicine, firefighting, and law enforcement
