Elbit Systems introduces ClearVision Advanced enhanced flight vision systems

Elbit Systems Ltd. introduced the ClearVision™ next generation Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS) at NBAA 2014. This mature, cutting-edge system has already demonstrated successful flights onboard various types of aircraft platforms making it a world leading system in the commercial market segment.

Elbit Systems developed the ClearVision EFVS for business aviation and Air Transport applications in order to improve the accessibility of airplanes to destinations which often suffer from weather restrictions. The systems is a complete EFVS that covers the full flight envelope and overcomes extreme weather conditions and low visibility situations in day and night. Comprised of an Enhanced Vision Systems (EVS), a Head Up Display (HUD) and the Skylens wearable HUD, this solution enables intuitive” out of the window” flying, minimizes the dependency on airport and helipad instruments, reduces landing minima and provides takeoff credit.

The systems' display fuses conformal flight guidance symbology with synthetic vision presentation and high-resolution EVS video on a HUD or Skylens wearable HUD. Using multi-spectral sensors to capture and display terrain and airport lights in darkness and reduced visibility, the sensors are combined and fused on the head-up display, with global terrain database (Synthetic Vision System – SVS), functioning as a Combined Vision System (CVS). The CVS provides a high fidelity view of the outside world even when actual visibility is zero and enables pilots to see the runway lights better, in conditions impairing the visibility of unaided approach. This improves the pilots' ability to execute precision and non-precision approaches and safely land, reducing the risks of Clear Flight into Terrain (CFIT) accidents and enables to take credit for the FAA and EASA regulation for lower minimas for both takeoff and landings

Elbit Systems' ClearVision solution integrates electronic vision sensors and head-up display technology, enabling continuous and unobstructed flying in 'head up' orientation. The system is in advanced stages of development and certification for commercial aviation and certification with EASA and FAA for part 25 platforms.

The vision delivered by EFVS utilizes several different sensors tuning the sensor's sensitivity to identify the profile of runway lights, and to penetrate atmospheric obscurants such as fog, clouds, rain, snow, dust or smoke. By fine-tuning the sensor's various sensors, ClearVision™ EFVS improves the pilot's vision of both conventional floodlights and LED-based lights, which cannot be detected by conventional FLIR based sensors.
