3D Synthetic Vision
The 3D Synthetic Vision provides an indication of the aircraft’s attitude as well as the area close to the aircraft such as terrain, nearby ChartElements, Runways, … and the current Procedure.
The current Procedure is shown as a tunnel in the sky. This can be for example a Direct to a destination, a Holding, an Approach, … .
The terrain is rendered in warning colors in case of a small vertical distance to the terrain.
Useful flight informations are displayed in a PFD like style (such as groundspeed, altitude, vertical speed, groundtrack, bearing, destination).
Horizon can provide a backup attitude indicator (also called AHRS, Attitude and Heading Reference System) given that you use good sensors.
Many tablets have good internal sensors (gyroscope, accelerometer, magnetometer, GPS) which can be used in conjuction with our innovative Sensor Fusion Algorithms to get a pretty reliable attitude indication. Our Sensor Fusion Algorithms have been carefully developed and heavily tested. Now they make it possible to get an attitude indication even while using internal sensors only.
Nevertheless we are offering an external Sensorbox which is able to estimate the attitude independent of internal tablet sensors. You can find more information here.
