Three companies to develop synthetic-vision avionics to help land helicopters in choking dust

Three U.S. defense contractors are developing synthetic vision helicopter avionics that capitalizes on data from existing onboard sensors to help U.S. Special Operations helicopter pilots deal with brownout conditions and other degraded visual environments (DVE) during challenging missions. Engineers from Rockwell Collins, Boeing, and Sierra Nevada will develop the DVE System for Special Operations Command. The system will integrate information from aircraft sensors to increase situational awareness for MH‐47 and MH‐60 helicopter aircrews.
