Enhanced Vision Systems (EVS’s)

Opgal was the first to develop and market an innovative landing-assist and situational awareness thermal-imaging camera for an EVS (Enhanced Vision System). Opgal is also by far the largest manufacturer of EVS cameras with landing credit. Installed as a standard feature in many airplanes, EVS systems facilitate precision approaches and safe landings 24/7 in reduced visibility conditions including thick fog, smog, heavy rain, and snow. As an added benefit, EVS-trained crews are permitted to descend below published minimums before visually detecting the runway or approach lights, due to the overwhelming safety benefits of EVS.

Opgal EVS AP Enhanced Vision System


Opgal’s EVS AP camera is a field proven, highly sensitive, wide-spectrum infrared camera that provides aerial camera systems with clear Head-Up Display (HUD) video images of the runway environment enabling safe taxiing, takeoff, precision approach, and landing.

Opgal Everest EVS for Aviation

Everest EVS

Opgal’s proprietary Everest EVS system leads the new wave of EVS multisensor systems. Designed by Opgal based on 17 years of EVS experience, the Everest EVS aviation camera delivers crisp images of incandescent and LED runway lighting, day or night, in poor lighting or harsh weather conditions. EVS significantly improves flight safety and situational awareness, in the air, and on active taxiways and runways, enabling safe taxiing, takeoff, precision approach, and landing.

These EVS cameras go above and beyond in their ability to enhance flight safety, even under harsh weather conditions. Even in circumstances such as fog, rain or snow, these enhanced vision systems for aviation are designed to provide clear sight for pilots and allow them to see clearly during all stages of the flight.
