COLLINS COMBINED VISION
The former Rockwell Collins (now Collins Aerospace) was the first HUD manufacturer to offer SVS imagery on a HUD, with the first certified installation on Bombardier's Global 6000. Now Collins and Bombardier are stepping up to a combined vision system (CVS), which will enter into service on the new Global 5500 and 6500 when they begin delivery in 2020. The Collins CVS is an overlay of synthetic vision system (SVS) and enhanced vision system (EVS) imagery, where SVS and CVS images are shown on the HUD at the same time and occupying the same space.
