Title
(EN) System and method for management of a ground obstacle display
Abstract
(EN)

Systems and methods for managing a visual display in a ground proximity warning system. In one embodiment, a system includes at least one aircraft sensor system operable to acquire aircraft data and a ground proximity warning computer coupled to the aircraft sensor system that is operable to process the aircraft data to generate ground proximity warning data corresponding to a sensed ground obstruction. An indicating system includes at least one visual display device that is operable to display terrain elevations and to display a visual symbol corresponding to at least one of the ground obstructions, wherein at least one of the computer and the visual display device is controllable to selectively alter an appearance of the visual symbol relative to the terrain elevations.
