Degraded Visibility Landing System (DVLS) enhances pilots’ situational awareness by providing a low-latency, binocular helmet-mounted display (HMD) featuring augmented reality symbology including obstructions, threat data and synthetic terrain along with a high design assurance level primary flight display. Navigation data from mission planning databases, drift and flight cues and an intuitive landing zone display aid safe landings in various types of degraded environments. The open interface system allows for data fusion from various sources and sensors, allowing completely passive degraded visual environment capability (fused EO/IR and symbols) or can be integrated with active sensing technologies such as radar or LIDAR.
Automated boresighting and alignment, components with low size, weight and power and a simple fiducial sticker installation with no need for complex cockpit mapping make the system scalable to a wide variety of platforms.
Additional options include a non-HMD version that can be retrofitted into existing cockpits and displays and interface with existing sensors and components.
