AUSTIN, Texas - L2 Aviation, a supplier of global avionics services including engineering, certification, installation and manufacturing in Dripping Springs, Texas announced it has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Klatt Works in Pleasanton, California that sets the framework for certification and support of the newly developed Klatt Works SAVED system.
The Klatt Works SAVED system is a wearable system that adds augmented reality technology to existing pilot oxygen masks, displaying critical flight information. During a smoke in the cockpit emergency when the pilot has drastically reduced visibilitySAVED provides a see-through display inside the oxygen mask that presents HUD symbology with nose camera video. This allows the aircrew to aviate during an extreme smoke emergency with required visual references to land or ditch the aircraft.
L2 Aviation and Klatt Works are working towards certifying the system across a broad range of aircraft types including Boeing 737, 787, Airbus A320, A330, Gulfstream G650, G550 and more across commercial, business, and military aircraft.
"When we were looking for a certification partner for our SAVED system, we discovered an ideal partner with an excellent reputation in L2 Aviation," said Nate Klatt, Founder and CEO of Klatt Works. "L2 is a leader in the aircraft products certification industry and we could not have asked for a better partner to integrate our SAVED system into additional aircraft beyond the FedEx fleet of Boeing 757, 767, and 777 aircraft as previously announced in AIN. L2's expertise and our revolutionary vision display system will enhance flying safety in critical visibility situations like few other products have before."
"The relationship between Klatt Works and L2 is one based on the shared desire to make a difference in the world and to provide cutting-edge products and services to the aviation community," said Tony Bailey, Chief Operations Officer for L2 Aviation. "The Klatt Works SAVED system brings an unparalleled level of safety to the cockpit and we could not be prouder to be a part of the team to help certify the system for use in the global aircraft industry."
