The system comes in head-up and head-down configurations with a multi-spectral EVS sensor to improve terrain and hazard detection, as well as navigation in low-visibility conditions. Also included in the system is the ability to fully detect LED lighting.
“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.”
The company plans on revealing its launch customer for the EVS-300 at the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) convention in Las Vegas on Oct. 21.
