Aircraft SVS uses the database of terrains, runways, obstacles, airports, and flight plan information to create a virtual environment that corresponds to the real world. It combines this database with position sensor, computing platform, and display to present a computer-generated view to the pilot. SVS systems help enhance situational awareness by providing a clear image of the external environment even in low visibility conditions and at nighttime. These features translate into increased operational capability of aircraft and reduce the chances of accidents.

This report covers the current scenario and growth prospects of the Global Aircraft Synthetic Vision System market for the period 2015-2019. It presents a global overview as well as the market shares and growth prospects by region (the Americas, and the EMEA and APAC regions). The report also presents the market landscape and a corresponding analysis of the prominent vendors in the market.
