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

EVS AP

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.

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.
