Head-up Guidance System (HGS™)

Overview

The Rockwell Collins Head-up Guidance System (HGS™) provides you with enhanced situational awareness and energy management during all phases of flight. The HGS eliminates pilot transition from head-down to head-up flying. All flight-critical information is conformal with your view of the outside world, allowing you to fly accurate approaches and precise landings on any runway and in diverse weather conditions.

Using patented, high-integrity computer architecture, the HGS collects and evaluates critical flight data such as attitude, airspeed, altitude and navaid inputs to compute guidance-to-touchdown information that can permit Category III landings (50 feet DH, 600 feet RVR) as well as certified low-visibility takeoffs (to 300 feet RVR). The HGS also displays special symbology for events such as TCAS resolution advisories, wind-shear awareness/recovery and tail-strike avoidance.
