EUROCAE Open Consultation

We are pleased to announce the availability of the following draft EUROCAE document prepared by EUROCAE WG-79 "Enhanced Vision Systems (EVS), Synthetic Vision Systems (SVS)" for Open Consultation:

  • Draft ED-249 "MASPS for Aircraft State Awareness Synthetic Vision Systems" for Open Consultation

This MASPS provides high level system requirements for an Aircraft State Awareness SVS (ASA SVS). 

ASA SVS is intended to prevent the occurrence of spatial disorientation and to support the pilots’ continuous attitude, altitude and topography awareness. In addition, the system is intended to improve pilot awareness of energy state related to the flight path of the aircraft.

It is intended that an SVS meeting this MASPS will reduce the risk of loss-of-control inflight (LOC-I) accidents by preventing the attainment of any unusual (i.e., not normal) attitude and energy states that could result in a LOC-I.

You are invited to review the proposed draft and complete the comment form. Early replies are encouraged.

All comments must be submitted by 30 June 2017.
