Rockwell Collins today unveiled its EVS-3000, the most advanced and highest fidelity enhanced vision system (EVS) in the commercial aviation market segment.
The new system, available on both head-up and head-down displays, includes a proprietary multi-spectral EVS sensor, developed by Rockwell Collins, that significantly improves detection of outside terrain, hazards and obstacles in low-visibility conditions caused by weather phenomena such as fog. The EVS-3000 also brings the industry-first ability to fully detect LED lighting, which is increasingly utilized by airports as a runway lighting solution.
“We’re bringing unprecedented accuracy in sensing what’s ahead during critical phases of flight,” said Craig Olson, senior director, Head-up Guidance Systems for Rockwell Collins. “At the same time, operators will experience enhanced reliability and lower cost of ownership from our lower-weight, more energy-efficient EVS solution.”
Rockwell Collins’ EVS-3000 does not require a traditional built-in cooling system, which significantly reduces weight, lowers aircraft power consumption and improves system performance longevity.
Rockwell Collins will be revealing a launch customer for EVS-3000 during its press conference at the National Business Aviation Association Convention and Exhibition in Las Vegas on Oct. 21.
