Avidyne unveils Synthetic Vision and Enhanced Vision

Avidyne Corporation is unveiling the latest enhancements to its Entegra product line, Synthetic Vision (SVS) and Enhanced Vision (EVS), at its EAA AirVenture booth, numbers 2098-2101 in Hall B. The company's SVS and EVS capabilities are being demonstrated on large-format 15-inch Integrated Flight Displays (IFD) throughout the show.

Avidyne's Entegra SVS offers improvements over existing systems by depicting 3D terrain all the way out to the horizon, based on the aircraft's altitude above the ground. The Avidyne system also depicts obstacles, traffic and "Highway-in-the-Sky" (HITS) boxes on the PFD. SVS greatly enhances the utility of the airplane, improves the comfort level of passengers, and increases the safety of each flight.

The Entegra EVS being demonstrated in the Avidyne booth at Oshkosh uses a Max-Viz EVS-100 infrared camera. EVS is designed to turn night into day, enabling pilots to see up to ten times further in marginal VFR conditions through most atmospheric obscurations. With SVS and EVS, pilots can now fly comfortably at night, enjoying clear views of the ground, seeing emergency landing fields, roads, lakes, and buildings.

"Since we launched the all-glass flight deck revolution for general aviation in 2003 with Entegra, we have continued to provide the most up-to-date avionics systems available by paying close attention to user interface and integration," noted Dan Schwinn, Avidyne's president. "We're continuing that tradition with our SVS and EVS offerings which increase situational awareness and add another level of safety enhancement for GA pilots," he added.

"Avidyne brings a new level of performance to the display of synthetic vision in GA aircraft," said Steve Jacobson, vice president of Product Management. "The Entegra SVS provides a constant level of detail during rendering, resulting in a smooth, real-world transition in the representation of terrain features as they grow nearer rather than a sudden 'morphing' of their shapes," he added.

Pricing and Availability

Pricing and availability of SVS and EVS upgrades for Entegra will be announced at a future date as part of Avidyne's on-going Entegra upgrade announcements.
