Israeli innovators have invented goggles that use special cameras to help pilots see through fogs and other dangerous weather conditions. This means safer air travel for everyone!
Normally, when flying through fog or smoke, pilots must rely on instruments alone as vision is severely reduced.
Elbit’s [Israeli tech company] new system uses special cameras to analyze various wavelengths of light, then chooses and combines them with “synthetic vision” based on databases of terrain and infrastructure, into an image that will give the pilot the best visibility of the way ahead.
The image is then projected directly over the pilot’s eyes on a wearable heads-up display — basically a set of fancy goggles — allowing the pilots to fly the plane as if they were seeing through the inclement weather.
