Universal Avionics announces ETSOA for Synthetic Vision

Universal Avionics announces European certification, EASA ETSOA IM.21O.671, for its Vision-1™ Synthetic Vision System (SVS) on 21-March-2007.  The Vision-1™ image is a real-time computer generated rendering of the terrain ahead of the aircraft orientated to the aircraft's vertical and lateral position when displayed on the EFI-890R, MFD-640 or EFI-550 flat panel LCD displays.  Universal's Vision-1™ terrain imagery utilizes topographical coloring similar to that used on aviation sectional charts.  Hills and mountains appear in shades of green and brown while oceans and other large bodies of water are colored blue.  Special shading on the digitized terrain and the grid overlay that conform to the landscape on the synthetic world provide a sense of movement in flight.  The ability of Vision-1™ to display a wingman's view enables the pilot to view the flight profile based on the FMS flight plan.

"The European ETSO certification for our Vision-1 Synthetic Vision System is great news for Universal and our European customers who can now benefit from the tremendous advantages Synthetic Vision brings in increased situational awareness and safety," says Marketing V.P. Paul DeHerrera.
