Paper Abstract

A virtual cockpit provides aircraft crew members with a seamless, three dimensional perspective of the environment outside the aircraft, along with presentation of information for primary flight, navigation, flight and vehicle management, mission management, targeting, and other situational information. The benefit of integrating a virtual cockpit within an aircraft is that safety of flight and mission success rates are improved in the presence of poor visibility, poor weather, air traffic, and threats. This paper describes a virtual cockpit implementation using video sensor arrays and tiled displays along with other avionics and external systems.
