Lauda debuts Bombardier’s synthetic vision

Bombardier’s Vision Flight Deck has entered service on Formula 1 champion Niki Lauda’s new Global 5000 jet.

“The Vision Flight Deck is the realization of many years of efforts with our avionics partner Rockwell Collins and an industry first, featuring the implementation and certification of synthetic vision imagery on a head-up display (HUD),” said Steve Ridolfi, Bombardier president.

Bombardier and Rockwell Collins are the first to certify synthetic vision imagery on a HUD as part of the Pro Line Fusion avionics system on the Vision Flight Deck. The Vision Flight Deck for Global jets received EASA certification on February 20, FAA certification on February 29, and Transport Canada (TC) certification last June.

The Pro Line Fusion for the Vision Flight Deck on Global 5000 and Global 6000 jets features four high-resolution 15-inch diagonal active matrix liquid crystal displays (LCD) arranged in a T-shape working in concert with the head-up guidance system, personalised formats of display information, an electronic checklist, maps with graphical flight planning, an integrated cursor control panel, a Synthetic-Enhanced Vision System, paperless operation enabled by Dual Electronics Charts, a Future Air Navigation System (FANS), Controller-Pilot Datalink Communication (CPDLC), a Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS), Localizer Performance with Vertical Guidance and a MultiScan Weather Detection system.
