Wow – this is pretty awesome.
Israeli company Elbit Systems have developed an amazing piece of technology which will enable pilots to fly through fog or smoke.
Using special cameras, the special technology creates an image of the area ahead and using a special set of goggles can clearly see the flight path.
This is a vast improvement on the current system where an image is projected onto a display and the pilot will not be looking ahead – using this tech, the pilot can continue to look ahead, and even from side to side in a similar way to using a VR (virtual reality) headset.
The so-called ‘SkyLens’ makes this technology practical and readily available for civil aviation.
