Elbit Systems ClearVision Enhanced Flight Vision Systems provides advanced capabilities for the Falcon 5X

This unique cutting-edge system integrates Enhanced Vision System and Head-Up display technology, enabling the Falcon 5X continuous and unobstructed flight in 'head up' orientation along with operational credit for landing and takeoff

Elbit Systems ClearVisionTM next generation Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS) a mature, cutting-edge system has already demonstrated successful flights onboard Falcon Jets test platforms.

Elbit Systems developed the ClearVision EFVS in order to enhance the Falcon 5X operational flexibility 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), in single or dual configuration 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. 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 & FAA for part 25 platforms.

The vision of the external world provided to the Falcon 5X's pilot by the EFVS, will come from 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, ClearVisionTM EFVS improves the F5X pilot's vision of both conventional floodlights and LED-based lights, which cannot be detected by conventional FLIR based sensors.

Background Information:

ClearVision EFVS is a complete solution, comprised of an Enhanced Vision

Systems (EVS), a Head Up Display (HUD).

ClearVision EVS is an EVS sensor that allows the pilot to carry on operating, takeoff and land in low visibility conditions. ClearVision receives information from several sensors, all neatly packed into a single unit, covering different spectral bands, optimized for penetrating poor visibility and providing a fused picture that overcomes the reliance on heat generating objects.

ClearVision HUD is an electro-optic device that presents aircraft data over a transparent glass (combiner), ClearVision HUD is located in front of the pilot. The presented data is collimated to infinity, enabling the pilot to operate the aircraft using out-the window views during critical phases of flight. With eyes focused out in front of the aircraft viewing on the HUD the aircraft flight path vector, aircraft attitude, visual glideslope angle and the runway aim point, pilots can achieve greater precision and situational awareness while increasing safety. In addition, this modern HUD can present external video such as EVS video and supports the benefit of lower landing minimas.

Volcanic Ash Detection Capabilities as part of the ClearVisionTM EVS for Business Jets

Elbit Systems teamed with Nicarnica Aviation to cooperate on an exclusive basis and the two companies are now offering Volcanic Ash Detection capabilities, as part of Elbit Systems new innovative ClearVision EVS product to business jets. The combined solution will enhance the flexibility of business jets. The combined solution will enable pilots to avoid flying into contaminated areas while still maintaining safe operation in areas influenced by volcanic eruptions.
