See EVERYTHING With Garmin's SVT and Aero-TV!!!
Do you remember life before Garmin introduced the G1000? Neither
do we. Early Monday, Garmin announced the next significant
advancement to the highly popular and capable glass panel avionics
suite... and it's a whopper.
Garmin tells ANN it recently received FAA supplemental type
certification (STC) for Garmin Synthetic Vision Technology (SVT),
designed to fully integrate with the G1000... both present and past
models. Garmin's SVT presents a 3D depiction of terrain, obstacles
and traffic on the G1000's primary flight-display (PFD) so that the
avionics panel replicates what pilots would see outside the cockpit
on a clear day.
Garmin's SVT blends information about the aircraft's position
with topographic databases to create and display real-time 3D
images. The information is presented on the G1000's large flight
displays with XGA (1,024x768-pixel) resolution, superior sunlight
readability and wide viewing angles. SVT presents the necessary
information in ways that are easy to understand so pilots feel at
ease interpreting the information.
The foundation of SVT is the depiction of 3D terrain, which is
displayed on the PFD(s). Land, water and sky are clearly
differentiated with shading and textures that are similar to the
topographical colors found on the multi-function display (MFD)
moving map. SVT works seamlessly to alert pilots of potential
ground hazards by displaying terrain and obstacles which pose a
threat to the aircraft with appropriate TAWS alert coloring.
Those flying with a TAWS-B enabled (optional) G1000 avionics
suite also have the benefit of receiving voice alerts. Terrain
warnings are also depicted on the MFD with a traditional,
color-coded "X" symbol. If the aircraft does not have TAWS-B
enabled, reduced capability AC 23-26 compliant terrain alerting is
included with SVT.

About Aero-TV: It's DEFINITELY Show
OK, folks, here we go... we are NOW initiating the first
feature programming series for Aero-TV... we're going to take it
slow, but we're also going to try and be steady about this. DO
UNDERSTAND that this is the most complex media program we've ever
undertaken and what you're seeing is just the tip of the iceberg...
but from here on out, we will be doing our best to educate,
inform, and entertain YOU about all aspects of the exciting worlds
of aviation and aerospace.
If you've been an observer of the media and associated media
industries over the last few years, it's not hard to mistake the
fact that a massive revolution is taking place. Old sources for
news and information are falling by the wayside, having to change
their modus operandi or risk obsolescence (or extinction).
Electronic media and print media are both under the assault of
progress, and the online world has been a cornerstone for
We've been ready to go for a while, but to be honest, there's so
much more to this program than we've alluded to, and so we've been
building and planning a massive new organization within ANN. That
said, we're hiring talented new people as
fast as we can find them (a far more difficult
task than we had imagined -- REALLY good people are hard to find),
and we're brainstorming at speeds that would make a deorbiting
Space Shuttle feel like a slug. Suffice it to say that we wanted to
do this right, rather than right-now, and that the development of
this program has been the most carefully pursued undertaking we've
E-I-C Note: The
complete feature shown above is embedded in this
story, with most of the slick and useful functionality
otherwise available on the main Aero-TV site (which will be
upgraded aggressively over the next few weeks). The ability to
embed a video on another web page is but one of the hundreds
of amazing little features that we've worked hard on, for many
months now, to implement in different phases of the initial
release of Aero-TV. It is, BY NO MEANS, the only way to enjoy
unaltered Aero-TV programming on other parts of the web... as we
have extensive plans for future functionality, but this
feature allows those with an interest in a specific Aero-TV News or
Feature program to embed it on a different web site, though we
must note that we reserve the right to forbid such use for those
sites or purposes that we do not feel fit in with the proper
mission of the Aero-News Network, Inc.
Webmasters or Administrators of well-trafficked aviation or
aerospace related sites, are welcome to contact the Publisher to
start conversations on how they may be able to leverage some of the
immense power of Aero-TV programming for their sites and
constituency by clicking the I Want Aero-TV For
