Elbit Systems have this week unveiled their new Skylens heads up display (HUD), that has been designed to enable commercial aviation pilots to view augmented reality vision, without the ability to have to rely on airport instrumentation.
As you can imagine flying in bad conditions or during the night offers new challenges for pilots to contend with, but wearing the new Elbit Systems Skylens enables them to see more information via an easy to install system.
The Elbit Systems Skylens system consists of a lounge visor which has been designed to fit easily over a pilot’s glasses and is equipped with a high-resolution screen providing easy access to data symbols and video.
Elbit Explains that the Skylens system can be retrofitted to existing airplanes and helicopters. Provide an detailed augmented view of the outside world with flight data over laid what the pilot can or cannot see.
