Rockwell Collins has unveiled what it says is the first head-up guidance system (HGS) designed for small and medium-sized business jets. The HGS-3500 was revealed at the Corporate Aviation Safety Seminar in San Diego. The system will run off a Collins Pro-Line Fusion panel and display enhanced and synthetic vision images. Rockwell Collins spokesman Greg Irmen said the gear is a "breakthrough system that brings this advanced capability to thousands of aircraft that never before had access to the safety benefits of head-up flying."
The HUD itself is an all-in-one hardware package that is designed to fit in smaller cockpits. Rockwell Collins has installed 3,500 HUDs in larger aircraft in the last 20 years.
