Esterline CMC Electronics achieves milestone in deliveries of its industry leading Enhanced Vision System sensor

Esterline CMC Electronics (CMC) has achieved a production milestone with the recent shipment of its 500th SureSight® enhanced vision system (EVS) sensor.

CMC's SureSight family of integrated sensor systems comprises the CMA-2600 and CMA-2700. These systems are designed to meet demanding video performance, reliability and quality standards, and are the leading choice for airframe manufacturers and prime contractors. They offer enhanced situational awareness in adverse visual conditions and enable operators to take advantage of regulations expanding the operational capabilities of aircraft equipped with an EVS.

Under these regulations, when the runway environment cannot be visually acquired at the decision altitude or the minimum decision altitude using natural vision, the pilot of an aircraft equipped with a Head Up Display presenting the EVS imagery can continue the descent down to 100 feet above the touchdown zone elevation, provided the requirements for a visual approach are met using the EVS. From that point onwards in the descent, these visual references must be visible to the pilot without the use of the EVS system in order for the aircraft to proceed to a landing.

The SureSight CMA-2600 sensor is in operation on multiple aircraft platforms, including the Bombardier Global Express and Global 5000, the Dassault Falcon 900, 2000 and 7X, and the Boeing Business Jet.

The third-generation SureSight CMA-2700 sensor offers the highest resolution available for an EVS sensor and four times the resolution of currently certified systems. It features state-of-the-art digital image processing, including dynamic non-uniformity corrections. This end-to-end digital system is also the first EVS fully compliant to ARINC 818 Avionics Digital Video Bus standards. This sensor has been selected for the Bombardier Global aircraft with the Global Vision Cockpit and the Bombardier Challenger 605.
