Opgal’s® EVS AP infrared camera, is designed especially for aviation safety. The camera allows for safe taxiing, takeoff, and precision approach, in addition to landing in reduced visibility conditions such as thick fog, smog, heavy rain or snow. Its operating bandwidth fuses both the short and medium wavelength IR spectrum to provide clear images of approach and runway lights, runway threshold, buildings, obstructions and aircraft in close proximity. These images, which are normally undetectable “out the window” at night and in bad weather, are easily detected by Opgal’s EVS AP camera. EVS AP leverages Opgal’s proven EVS technology which was embedded in the first FAA‑certified enhanced vision system, to provide clear vision in any weather conditions.



  • Highly sensitive Infrared (IR) sensor with a NETD less than 0.005°C
  • Powerful electronic processor
  • Clear images of scenes at different extreme temperatures, achieved by very high dynamic range
  • Proprietary image-processing software algorithms
  • High acquisition rate; 300 frames/second
  • Anti-blooming mechanism cancels interference afflicted by irrelevant sources of light and/or heat
  • Delivers unprecedented situational awareness that enhances safety and leads to fewer diverted, delayed or cancelled flights
  • Certified technology for landing minima on Category I runways (100 ft.) and reduced take-off requirements in commercial EVS systems
  • Detection of approach lights and obscure environmental features in low visibility
  • Fog penetration and clearer infrared video images
  • Minimal training requirements
  • The EVS AP camera works in conjunction with the aircraft Head Up Display (HUD) and Head Down Display
  • Suitable for both fixed and rotary wing aircraft



The EVS AP uses certified technology for landing minima on Category I runways. As such, it has been installed in more than 1,000 aircraft to date, far more than any other EVS technology. For more information or a quote, contact us today.
