Universal Avionics, Tucson, Ariz., said it received European certification in March for its Vision-1 Synthetic Vision System (SVS). Vision-1 provides a real-time, computer generated rendering of 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. The 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. The ability of Vision-1 to display a wingman’s view enables the pilot to see the flight profile based on the flight management system flight plan.
