Benefits of non-lightbar guidance systems: How visual alerts keep pilots on-course

Designed to be very intuitive, or pilot-friendly, the DynaViz is an extremely accurate guidance instrument that offers the possibility of higher productivity than can be achieved using lightbar-type guidance systems.

The DynaViz display has two flight guidance modes; the moving map and the “roadway.” It also has visual alerts that we call “ticklers” to keep the pilot on-course and improve accuracy.  Should the aircraft stray off-course the on-screen tickler will appear in the display window which is picked up in the pilot’s peripheral vision.

The tickler is a rotating disc of light that appears on the left or right of the display screen indicating the direction that the aircraft is off-course. The tickler will gradually increase or decrease in size and light intensity to reflect the magnitude of distance the aircraft has strayed from the intended course.

At maximum adjustment if no disc appears on the DynaViz display screen the pilot is flying to within one foot of his course.

Ticklers provide incremental, continuous feedback that enables the pilot to react smoothly and make course corrections with greater accuracy than is possible using a lightbar.
