Swiss air rescue organisation Rega has performed a successful demonstration flight using Elbit Systems' SkyVis technology onboard an AW109SP. SkyVis enables flight in limited visibility conditions, increasing the total number of rescue missions possible in adverse weather and potentially saving more lives. Several capabilities were tested, sometimes using the technology in isolation to land while the pilot's window was covered.

The tests took place in Zurich using a day/night head mounted display, which presented flight and navigation data overlaying the real world by using two and three dimensional symbols, enhanced degraded visual landing applications and head tracking capabilities.

The companies will work together to integrate the capability in Rega's future platforms.
