Collins Aerospace Receives Milestone
Certification for Combined Vision Systems
Collins Aerospace has achieved a technical standard order (TSO) for its combined
vision system (CVS) for business aviation aircraft. The CVS provides clarity
to pilots in all types of weather to confidently and securely navigate aircraft
through low visibility situations. CVS brings together Collins' proven head-up
display (HUD), primary flight
display (PFD), Synthetic Vision
Systems (SVS) and Enhanced
Vision Systems (EVS) technologies,
to present the best view
to pilots. Advanced algorithms
detect and extract real-time
features from the complete EVS
image - such as from Collins'
EVS-3600 multi-spectral EVS
sensor - and integrate them
with Collins' feature-rich SVS which accurately presents terrain, obstacles,
airports and runways, independent of the visibility conditions. " TSO certification
is an important step in our journey to provide dynamic CVS technology
to our customers who rely on our vision systems to guide them through low
visibility situations in every stage of flight, " said Craig Brown, general manager
of Vision Systems for Collins Aerospace. " Whether it's poor weather, smoke,
dust, demanding terrain or busy airports, CVS clearly and automatically displays
the critical visual information pilots need to safely operate their aircraft. "
Dassault Aviation Adds 13,000 m2
in Seclin, France
Dassault Aviation has inaugurated the extension of its Seclin plant,
which is now 50,000 m2. The plant is responsible for manufacturing
machined and formed aluminum and titanium primary parts for the
company's civil and military aircraft. New workshops are devoted
to surface treatment and sheet metal work previously carried out
at Argenteuil. Chemical machining was replaced with a unique " 12axis "
machining process, the only one of its kind in the world. " The
large-scale investments in recent years have led to a significant rise
in manpower: we had 300
employees in 2018, and
now have nearly 600,
including subcontractors
on site. The eventual
target is a total of 700
staff in 2025. The skills
and industrial resources
brought together here
are among the best
in Europe, even the
world, " said Eric Trappier, chairman and CEO of Dassault Aviation.
