CMC Electronics said a subsidiary of Bell Helicopter installed its SureSight M-Series Enhanced Vision System (EVS) sensor on an Agusta Westland AW-139 helicopter for a corporate customer. Bell subsidiary Edwards & Associates said it expects to receive the FAA STC shortly for the CMC Electronics M-Series EVS sensor being installed in the AW-139. CMC, Montreal, said its EVS sensor improves situational awareness by providing pilots with a daytime-like image at night and in low-visibility situations for commercial, business/corporate and paramilitary operations. The M-Series sensor weighs 2.2 lb and measures 2.4 inches by 2.5 inches by 6 inches in length.
