[Avionics Magazine 10-12-2016] The FAA and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) have certified Dassault Aviation’s Combined Vision System (CVS), FalconEye, for use on the Falcon 2000S and LXS twinjet aircraft. Dassault says the company is anticipating that FalconEye will be on the Falcon 8X ultra-long range trijet in 2018.
FalconEye is a Head-Up Display (HUD) system that blends synthetic, database-driven terrain mapping and thermal and low-light camera images into a single view. The system is equipped with a fourth-generation multi-sensor camera that generates very high definition images. In Synthetic Vision System (SVS) mode, the camera displays a 30 x 40 degree field of view and Dassault says the system’s modular architecture will make it easy to add on future capabilities, like Enhanced Vision System (EVS) landings.
