Moving Terrain for Helicopters

An invaluable Help for Flying – developed for your Safety

Moving Terrain for Helicopter

MT Relief Dynamics: 3D Moving Map im Cockpit

When flying over unknown terrain, in busy airspace or in low visibility areas you are fully supported by our optimized system. Critical situations are immediately visible on the multi-function display. The pilot can react more quickly and thus avert hazards sooner rather than later.
Pilots have a visually connected view from the cockpit – with a perfectly positioned 3D terrain relief in combination with a pilot's chart. This immediately and significantly facilitates orientation and situational awareness even in bad conditions.

Fields of Application: Reliabiliy even under most difficult conditions

1. Search and Rescue (SAR) & Emergency Medical Service (EMS)

EMS and SAR supported by Moving Terrain
Special software for search and rescue: bases/OPS-specific databases for hospitals, etc.


  • Display of individual helicopter positions in the operation base.
  • Targets on the MT display in the helicopter provided by the control center.


  • Primary and secondary rescue.
  • Detailed maps of all scales from overview maps to city maps with hospital landing sites.
  • Targeting locations and streets via the integrated database.
  • Overlay of safety-relevant symbols on the map (e.g. obstacles) for increased low-level safety.

2. Increased Safety for Police and Military use

  • Night dimming for all lighting conditions.
  • Suitable for NVG (night vision goggles).
  • FLIR camera connection available.
  • Camera focus control on the part of the pilot for film and TV recordings.


3. After "Cloudbreak"

Cloudbreak: VFR/IFR Wechel

Changing visual conditions and the associated change from IFR to VFR – this is one of our strenghts. Due to the configuration of our systems (VFR and IFR) and the intuitive handling the display quickly shows the information that is important for your individual flight situation.

4. Obstacles

Display of obstacles for whole Europe with coloured icons over the chart: power lines, cable cars, radio towers, pipelines, wind turbines etc.

a) 3D Version

MT Obstacles 3D

b) 2D Version


5. Offshore

Offshore wind turbines are displayed in 3D with the danger zone marked for the rotor blades. According to the relative height of the helicopter (corr. danger zone) the icons are shown in intuitive colours (green, yellow, red). Your wind park is captured in our database individually – with location and dimensions of the farm, even with the size of the rotor blades.
