HeliSure™ Helicopter Synthetic Vision System

Every minute of every day in every corner of the world a helicopter is performing a critical mission. Often those flights are conducted at low altitudes, in visually restricted conditions and at unfamiliar, off-airport locations.

These types of operations put a great deal of added stress on flight crews. Statistics show high-workload, low-visibility situations are the leading cause of controlled flight into terrain (CFIT ) accidents.

Fortunately, there is a technological solution to CFIT accidents. Rockwell Collins Helicopter Synthetic Vision System (H-SVS) gives pilots a “real-world” view of the terrain and obstacles along their flight path.These high-resolution displays enable helicopter pilots to “see and avoid” even when they can’t see outside the aircraft.

H-SVS is part of the Rockwell Collins HeliSure™ product family – the only complete helicopter portfolio offering increased situational awareness through a unique combination of integrated visualization, displays, sensors and database components.
