Marconi Avionics is targeting commercial customers here at Le Bourget to promote its re-branded head-up display.

The company changed the name of its HUD 2020 to visual guidance system (VGS) because some customers thought it was more of a military product.

The VGS for commercial applications incorporates all of the benefits of the military HUD technology in a commercial package.

John Aplin says: "The system is not just a display, but a far more capable technology that would enable aircraft to be hand flown with a precision on a par, or better than autoflight systems.

"It also has the addition of take-off and roll-out guidance, situational awareness and improved safety."
