This optoelectronic device is designed to provide assistance in the piloting of an aircraft under conditions of poor visibility, at the final approach stage, during taxiing and at take-off from a runway equipped with an ILS. The device consists of a collimator displaying a reticule symbolizing a runway centerline that is shown to the pilot during flight as well as on the ground, without any break between the in-flight final approach stage and the ground stage of taxiing on the runway. The device takes account of the pilot's off-centered position in the aircraft cockpit.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
