Enhanced Vision Systems (EVS)

Enhanced Vision Systems (EVS) and Landing Assists

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.

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.
