“Safety Never Looked Better” ®
Universal Avionics’ Vision-1 Synthetic Vision System features a high-resolution
terrain database for crisp, clear “you-have-to-see-it” images.
Vision-1 “Egocentric” pilot’s view is designed for Primary Flight Display (PFD)
and Electronic Attitude Director Indicator (EADI) applications. It provides
the pilot with a perspective as if looking out the flight deck window. The
system maintains the standard foreground symbology and replaces the
blue/brown background with imagery depicting the terrain in real-time
complete with pitch and roll orientation.
The unique “Exocentric” wingman’s view provides a 3-D view of your aircraft
with respect to the flight path and surrounding terrain. The perspective is
as if from a camera situated behind, above and to the right of the aircraft.
The dynamic VGA video output can be displayed on the EFI-890R, EFI-890H,
MFD-890R, MFD-890H, MFD-640 or EFI-640 navigation displays. Overlay
of the flight plan from the Universal Avionics Flight Management System
(FMS), along with deviation indicators, trend vectors and compass symbol
with course and heading information contribute to provide you with a
unique, increased level of situational awareness.
Synthetic Vision System
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.
Special shading on the digitized terrain and the grid overlay that conform
to the landscape on the synthetic world help you get a sense of movement
in flight, particularly when flying near ground.
The low contrast grid lines are oriented East/West and North/South (True).
The E/W grid lines are at an interval of 0.25 NM and the N/S grid lines start
at 0.25 NM at the Equator and become narrow as you reach the Poles.
Flight plan and vertical profile depiction are derived from FMS flight plan
waypoint altitudes. Platforms show direction of flight.
White poles extending to the ground provide a perspective of the flight
plan relative to surrounding terrain. The poles are spaced at 1 NM intervals
within 10 NM of the aircraft and 10 NM thereafter.
A compass symbol, referenced to magnetic north, is displayed 1,000 feet
directly below the aircraft. A magenta line depicts the FMS selected course
and a black triangle for the aircraft heading.
