Successful flight trials for the Saab RIGS Head Up Display system

15 May 2012

Saab’s innovative integrated Head Up Display (HUD) System “RIGS” has completed initial flight trials in Sweden. The HUD has been integrated with Garmin’s G500H Avionic System and Maxviz’ EVS-1500 sensor in an AS350 helicopter.

The successful flight trials have included symbology evaluations, overlay of images from the Enhanced Vision Sensor (EVS) and Synthetic Vision depictions on the HUD.

In addition to the valuable experience gained as flight hours have been accumulated, several successful customer demonstration flights have been performed.

RIGS is an advanced, light-weight integrated HUD, that improves safety during all phases of flight. With its high resolution and excellent optical quality, the HUD provides crisp and clear flight information enabling head-up/eyes-out operations, significantly enhancing situational awareness and flight safety.

Saab is developing the HUD System with the capability and integrity to ensure compatibility with current and future Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS) operations.

See the RIGS HUD System in the Saab stand 1757 Hall 5 at EBACE on the 14-16 May.
