    Abstract

    Enhanced Synthetic Vision System (ESVS) consisting of several imaging sensors mounted onto the aircraft together with some built-in computing devices for acquiring, storing and displaying the sensor data. This data, provide necessary information to the pilot during flight phases close to terrain like approach and landing. Estimation of aircraft height and lateral deviation with respect to runway using images from an uncalibrated camera is implemented and studied. Studies have shown that error in height is more when the aircraft is away from the runway and error in lateral deviation is more when the aircraft away from the runway and is symmetrical with respect to runway central line.
