Elbit Delivers 1000th Enhanced Vision System
The Kollsman EVS system is certified for use by both the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) on business and airline aircraft in accordance with published EFVS regulations. It is currently installed on all aircraft models manufactured by Gulfstream Aerospace and is in the installation process on all wide body aircraft for the FedEx air transport fleet. The Kollsman EVS is well suited for Next Generation airspace satellite based operations, such as WAAS, LAAS, SBAS, RNP, and RNAV, by providing a means to continue descent below decision height at all airports regardless of infrastructure and weather conditions. The Kollsman EVS also provides improved situational awareness during ground operations aiding in a reduction of runway incursions.
