Synthetic Vision Technology (SVT™) enhances visual orientation in darkness, fog, haze, rain, or any solid IFR conditions that keep you from seeing clearly. Graphics modeling technology recreates a 3-D virtual rendering of the surrounding landscape on both the PFDs. The resulting picture depicts a dimensional graphic of ground and water, airports, obstacles, and air traffic — all shown relative to the aircraft.
When flying in areas or at altitudes where rising terrain may be an obstacle, Synthetic Vision Technology (SVT™) colorizes the landscape with its terrain-alerting database. This allows you to see clearly and avoid risk easily. Towers and other obstacles that may interfere with the flight path are color-highlighted and clearly displayed with height-appropriate symbology.
