Honeywell claims that more than airlines operate with EGPWS and that some 5, aircraft have flown more than 30 million hours with the well-proven system on board. FAA has also conducted a study about adapting 3-D military thrust vectoring to recover civil jetliners from catastrophes. The system is combined with a worldwide digital terrain database and relies on Global Positioning System GPS technology. What Peaks Mode offers is a depiction of the terrain below in various shades of green to denote ground elevations.
Inland bodies of water, including the Great Lakes are not yet painted in cyan, Curtis adds, because they are not at zero MSL.

Digital maps of terrain and obstacle features are then used to determine whether a collision is likely if the aircraft does not pull up at a given pre-set g-level. It is now standard equipment in all Airbus and Boeing models, and is standard or a standard option in all business-jet models and many regional aircraft.
