The Dassault Falcon 7X is among the first business jets to benefit from the better quality of LCD imaging for the enhanced-vision system (EVS) that the manufacturer is now offering as an option on its head-up display (HUD). The system allows crews flying the large-cabin trijet to see more clearly at night and in foggy conditions.

Rockwell Collins is developing the HGS-3500 head-up guidance system, a smaller and lighter head-up display (HUD) for turboprop singles to midsize jets. The HGS-3500, for use in aircraft equipped with the Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion avionics suite, fits into one 12-pound unit that mounts in front of the pilot. It consists of an LED-lighted active-matrix LCD that feeds the image into the top of the HUD glass.

Rockwell Collins announced the new smaller and lighter compact HGS-3500 head-up guidance system today at the FSF/NBAA Corporate Aviation Safety Seminar in San Diego. At roughly one-fifth the installed cost of a typical long-range jet’s head-up display (HUD), the HGS-3500 promises to bring the safety benefits of HUD technology to the segment spanning single-engine turboprops to midsize jets.

NASA has awarded a $1.2 million contract to Honeywell and Gulfstream for an 11-month test program of synthetic- and enhanced-vision systems (ESVS) technologies in business jet cockpits. The program’s overall research goal is to use SVS and EVS views for “equivalent visual operations,” a key initiative in the FAA’s plan for NextGen.
