IN-FLIGHT SMOKE EMERGENCIES
SAVED (Smoke Assured Vision Enhanced Display) is in development by Klatt Works for one of the world’s largest commercial carriers and is in the STC certification process with the FAA. Flight testing on the Boeing 777, 767, 757, and MD-11 is planned.
During a smoke in the cockpit emergency, when the pilot cannot clearly see the flight-control instruments, the pilots cannot navigate and aviate even though they can breath and see within their oxygen mask. In such a situation, SAVED provides a see-through display inside the oxygen mask of the nose camera video with HUD symbology. SAVED is an example of unequaled innovation in augmented reality and will ultimately increase safety of flight across the the aviation industry.
