[Avionics Today 06-02-2015] Elbit Systems ClearVision next generation Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS) has demonstrated successful flights onboard the Falcon 5X Jet test platforms.
Elbit Systems developed the ClearVision EFVS in order to enhance the Falcon 5X operational flexibility to destinations, which often suffer from weather restrictions. The system is a complete EFVS that covers the full flight envelope and overcomes extreme weather conditions and low visibility situations in day and night. Comprised of an Enhanced Vision Systems (EVS) and a Head-Up Display (HUD) in single or dual configuration, this solution enables intuitive “out of the window” flying, minimizes the dependency on airport and helipad instruments, reduces landing minima, and provides takeoff credit.
Elbit Systems’ ClearVision is in advanced stages of development and certification for commercial aviation and certification with European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and FAA for part 25 platforms.
