Esterline CMC Electronics' third-generation SureSight® enhanced vision system achieves certification

Esterline CMC Electronics (CMC) received Type Certification from Transport Canada for its third-generation SureSight® Enhanced Vision System (EVS) sensor, known as the CMA-2700, on November 18, 2011.

The CMA-2700 offers the highest resolution available for an EVS sensor and four times the resolution of currently certified EVS sensor systems. It features next-generation digital image processing, including dynamic non-uniformity corrections. This end-to-end digital system is also the first EVS that is fully compliant to ARINC 818 Avionics Digital Video Bus standards. Type Certification included compliance to DO-178B (software) and DO-254 (firmware) to Design Assurance Level B, and to DO-160F for environmental hardware qualification.

Greg Yeldon, President, Esterline CMC Electronics, said: "With this award, our state-of-the-art EVS sensor has demonstrated that it meets the most exacting EVS requirements. This approval is the culmination of an exhaustive development program, teaming CMC's product with Rockwell Collins Head-up Guidance System technology. We are very pleased with this success and the on-going relationship with our customer, Rockwell Collins Head-up Guidance Systems."

CMC's SureSight family of integrated sensor systems is designed to meet demanding video performance, reliability and quality standards, and is the leading choice for airframe manufacturers and prime contractors. Its integrated sensor systems offer enhanced situational awareness in adverse operating conditions and enable operators to take advantage of regulations expanding the operational capabilities of aircraft equipped with an EVS.
