Development of the SVS system began in 2012, and flight tests have produced excellent results. New regulations currently being prepared by EASA and the FAA should allow reduced minima for approaches and translate into operational benefits for airlines.
“Thales filed four patents during the development of this function, giving us a distinct edge in the SVS market,” says Philippe Priouzeau, Technical Director for Thales’s commercial avionics business. “The contracts we have signed so far suggest that the technology has huge potential in the markets we serve.”
