Something for PMDG to Chew On

Recommended Posts

I was just reading over at Aviation Week that Boeing and Airbus are beginning to delve into the synthetic vision arena with the somewhat tentative "goal" of incorporating SVS into the cockpit starting with new-build aircraft around 2020. That should give the devs some time to mull this one over and see how this might be included in whatever sim we might be using five years from now. I know it's down the road a piece, but it never hurts to start scratching out some thoughts/possible technical approaches to the topic.

In the meantime you can get synthetic vision on Foreflight with an appropriate subscription and the GPS app to make it work with FSX.

Milviz, I believe, is already working on this

Thanks, Ian and David, for your comments.

 

Ian - Yes Foreflight could work, but becomes a rather expensive proposition at $175/yr just for US coverage.

 

David - Any idea which product would incorporate SVS? I didn't see any mention in the B350i info which I assume is their upcoming flagship product.

Im assuming you haven't seen the post here: http://www.milviz.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=4383
 
The reason there is no certainty as to which product will incorporate SVS is due to 1) it isn't finished yet (still in R&D stages), 2) MV has yet to decide whether it will actually go into the 350i, and 3) my personal plan when I embarked on it is to create something that can be integrated by other devs into their products kindof like ASN. There are many small EFIS displays for GA aircraft out there that can do this eg Garmin, Aspen Evolution, Avidyne Entegra, GrandRapids Technologies, Dynon Skyview, MGL Avionics, BlueMountain Avionics, and Advanced Flight Systems to name a few.
 
Of course, my ultimate goal is to do a demo of this:

 

I would love to do this dreamed-of demo using the NGX HUD but for that I would need PMDG's approval and cooperation. I have attempted to get hold of RSR (via Ryan and Kyle in particular since RSR wont receive PMs here) but unfortunately to no avail....

 

For what it is worth, Rockwell Collins has been offering SVS upgrades for their HUDs and the Proline 21/Fusion for a while now, and Honeywell has been offering it for years on their various displays. I think some airlines have purchased these upgrades in a few rare instances. I guess its not standard yet though for a tube.
