Esterline CMC Electronics' third-generation SureSight sensor at the core of recently certified Bombardier Vision flight deck Enhanced Vision System

Esterline CMC Electronics' third-generation SureSight® CMA-2700 Integrated Sensor System was certified by Transport Canada, the Federal Aviation Administration and the European Aviation Safety Agency as an Enhanced Vision System for head-up display on Bombardier Global 5000 and Global 6000 aircraft equipped with the Bombardier Vision Flight Deck.

Greg Yeldon, president, Esterline CMC Electronics, said: "These certifications confirm the innovative technology and winning combination of capability, availability and performance of our SureSight CMA-2700 infrared sensor system. These approvals are the culmination of an exhaustive development program lead by Bombardier, teaming CMC's product with Rockwell Collins Head-up Guidance Systems' head-up display technology. "

The SureSight CMA-2700 offers the highest resolution available for an EVS sensor and four times the resolution of currently certified systems. It features next-generation digital image processing, including dynamic non-uniformity corrections for optimal image management. This end-to-end digital system is also the first EVS to be 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.

CMC's SureSight family of integrated sensor systems is designed to meet demanding video performance, reliability and quality standards. CMC's EVS sensors continue to be the leading choice for airframe manufacturers and prime contractors. They 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.
