Klatt Works, manufacturer of ‘SAVED’, the only fully-integrated augmented-reality display inside a commercial aircraft crew oxygen mask, and AMETEK Ameron, a leading manufacturer and overhaul facility for aviation safety products, have announced a new partnership to perform installation of SAVED into customer oxygen masks with full mask overhauls, or as OEM equipment.
The SAVED (Smoke Assured Vision Enhanced Display) system is a high-resolution display fully integrated into pilot and co-pilot emergency oxygen masks. SAVED provides real-time imaging of the aircraft’s HUD and forward-looking cameras inside the oxygen mask. This affords the crew the ability to fly, navigate and land the aircraft even in extreme smoke emergencies.
AMETEK Ameron brings significant added value to the partnership with its extensive capabilities in the manufacture and overhaul of oxygen systems, a large breadth of oxygen system experience and excellent customer support with a worldwide network of service and support.
SAVED provides a significant safety margin for freight carriers and will be extended in several versions for commercial carriers and business aircraft. This partnership will allow the two companies to best support differentiated customer needs and markets.
