The CVS application blends SVS, real-time video and symbology, providing a 3D perspective view of the topography, including stationary objects such as airports, airport runways and helipads. The image on the primary flight display is generated in real time from several database sources, including Elbit Systems’ EVS/HeliEVS, providing a remarkable video mixed with thermal imaging and additional cameras.
