Astronics

Single Sensor EVS


Overview

Rely on the industry leading enhanced vision systems (EVS) from Astronics Max-Viz to enhance your safety and situational awareness while flying. Designed to provide you with clear vision in reduced visibility conditions, these certified camera systems are easy to install, easy to integrate into your cockpit displays, and easy to maintain. Today over 3,000 Astronics Max-Viz units are improving safety on fixed-wing aircraft and rotorcraft worldwide.


See Clearly, Fly Safely

These state-of-the-art enhanced vision systems are lightweight, solid-state, low power, uncooled thermal cameras. Some EVS models include zoom capability. Compatible with leading MFDs and EFBs, the sensor image can appear on any display that accepts composite video (RS-170), NTSC, or PAL signals.

Astronics’ EVS systems offer the best way to see the real-world environment in real-time.

  • Clear vision through haze, smoke, light fog and other challenging conditions
  • Take off: Maintain situational and spatial awareness
  • En-route: Avoid bad weather for a smoother ride
  • On approach: See ground-based hazards in dark and low visibility conditions; see the landing environment during black hole approaches
  • During taxi: Avoid other aircraft, airport equipment, and potential incursions before they become an issue
