Paper Abstract

The resolution, cost and physical volume of modern imaging sensors has made their use as part of an airborne Autonomous Landing Guidance System (ALGS) a practical enterprise. This paper describes a latest generation Head Up Display (HUD) that is currently undergoing certification in the United States for Air Transport applications. The modes of operation of the HUD are described. The technical capabilities of the system are illustrated by video footage of its performance on flight test in actual low visibility conditions.
