Abstract

See full text

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.
