Mercury Computer Systems, Inc. has released VistaNav version 1.6, a multi-function flight display system with synthetic vision technology.
The latest release of the VistaNav system includes Mercury’s new, patent-pending Radar Vectors functionality. This feature provides 3D guidance during non-standard routings such as radar vector navigation or course deviations around traffic and weather. In addition, VistaNav 1.6 weather support upgrade includes winds aloft, lightning and freezing levels.
Other enhancements include a new interactive 2D display, enhanced airport search, and flight-planning features, as well as a new simulator for at-home training. The system includes an INU (Inertial Navigation Unit) featuring 3D solid-state inertial sensors, a WAAS-enabled GPS receiver, and a Bluetooth wireless interface. The unit can be mounted in a number of places inside an aircraft and communicates through a wireless interface using a tablet PC mobile computing platform (MCP). The entire unit is powered by the aircraft power supply and includes rechargeable batteries that will operate for up to one hour in the event of an electrical failure.
