Universal Avionics (UA), an Elbit Systems company has established repair capabilities for ClearVision™ EVS-5000 in its Tucson, AZ Part 145 Repair Station. The addition of multispectral enhanced vision cameras to the UA Repair Station capability list augments the worldwide support for EVS-5000 and will support its growing North American customer base.
ClearVision Enhanced Vision System (EVS) provides superior visuals with real-time synthetic information to improve flight safety and operational capabilities. EVS merges six sensors – from visible light to longwave, and high-definition cameras into a single combined image. Pilots can take advantage of complete situational awareness in all weather conditions day and night, during take-off, approach, and landing phases.
“ClearVision EVS-5000 is one of the most sophisticated electrical optical systems for commercial aviation of its time. Successful implementation of repair services paves the way to additional high-end technology work in our Tucson facilities,” said Steve Pagnucco, Vice President of Operations at Universal Avionics. “This project has showcased Universal Avionics’ ability to develop optical test equipment and transition complex technologies across a global corporation.”
ClearVision EVS is designed to increase platform efficiency and safety, with the latest visual processing technology, meeting all FAA/EASA EVS or EFVS civil certification requirements. Repair activities for EVS-5000 are expected to start by year-end, with more support for advanced solutions on the roadmap.
The complete ClearVision Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS) solution combines EVS with synthetic 3D terrain display to empower head-up flight operations using SkyLens™ and SkyVis™ head-wearable displays. It features a large field of view, with the brightest and highest resolution HUD (Head Up Display) for commercial aircraft in the market.
