Article excerpts:  “The Genesys flight deck replaces an avionics suite–the InSight Integrated Flight Deck–that MD Helicopters had planned to purchase from Universal Avionics. The Universal flight deck for the MD 902 was originally announced at Heli-Expo 2013 and made its first flight in March 2016."

“The Genesys suite includes some unique features, such as highway-in-the-sky navigation guidance and geo-referenced hover vector, 'which allows precision hover relative to designated targets,' according to the company. The IDU-680 includes integral H-TAWS and FMS, NVIS-A and NVIS-B night-vision goggle compatibility and digital flight performance recording (last five flights)."
