Our Combined Vision System (CVS) provides pilots with the best possible view
from their onboard vision systems: EVS and Synthetic Vision System (SVS). The
EVS and SVS image streams are combined using flexible, adaptive algorithms,
providing Combined Vision on the HUD.
Within the overlapping fields of vision of the EVS and SVS, Collins advanced
CVS algorithms detect, extract, and optimally present content from both sources.
When conditions are at their worst, Collins CVS presents pilots with the best
combined view possible: whether it is thermal imagery of terrain during night
operations; high-resolution synthetic vision virtual terrain, unaffected by any
weather; or fastest detection of runway and approach lighting systems for
continued landings. Collins CVS provides complete, and truly combined,
situational awareness—unleashing the full potential in every pilot.
