The Elbit Skylens tracks movements of the pilot’s eyes to see what he or she is looking at through a wide vision wearable head-up display (HUD). If, for example, the pilot focuses on a distant airport, a click of a button on the throttle or stick will bring up that airport’s information on the HUD, and another quick stare and click of the button can command communications.
The new click-and-command functionality has the ability to control the FMS and flight deck with the pilot’s sight. This allows the pilot to program and update flight path, runway selected and other critical FMS commands during critical approach phases, without distracting attention from flying the airplane head-up. The fully integrated function allows the pilot to change runway selected, approach selected and waypoint programing, all by looking on a virtually presented flight path and point selection with sight.
