Seeing Machines Limited (LON:SEE) shares surged in early trading Wednesday after it partnered up with L3 Commercial Aviation, a provider of pilot training solutions, to develop eye-tracking capabilities for flight simulators.

The firm, which develops eye-tracking and operator monitoring technology, said the two would work to integrate eye tracking capabilities into L3’s Full Flight Simulator (FFS), with the first device to be delivered to a major Australian airline in 2019.

It is the first time a permanent fully integrated eye tracking solution has been delivered into an FFS device used for civil aviation pilot training.

The company said its eye-tracking tech has the ability to monitor and evaluate both the performance of the pilots and their decision-making processes during simulator exercises, adding that the technology would help standardise head-up display flight training across the airline's organisation and optimise training outcomes for pilots and instructors.

The partnership follows a commercial agreement signed by Seeing Machines in November to provide its eye and face tracking sensor technologies to the Royal Australian Air Force.

Patrick Nolan, general manager of Aviation at Seeing Machines, said: "The feedback from the aviation industry on the benefits of this capability and solution has been very positive. It is great to see the transition to a fully integrated solution that will provide valid data to support and optimise flight training in what we believe will be the first of many engagements across the industry."

Shares were up 3.8% at 4.7p.
