Paper Abstract

A low-cost 3D-display and navigation system providing guidance information in a 3-dimensional format is described. The system including a LC display, a PC based computer for generating the 3-dimensional guidance information, a navigation system providing D/GPS and inertial sensor based position and attitude data was realized using Commercial-off-the-Shelf components. An efficient computer software has been developed to generate the 3-dimensional guidance information with a high update rate. The guidance concept comprises an image of the outside world as well as a presentation of the command flight path, a predictor and other guidance elements in a 3-dimensional format.
