Max-Viz announces the incorporation of 11 EVS-1000 infrared sensor systems onto the AgustaWestland's Grand (AW109) helicopters. Initial deliveries have been completed to the Swiss air-rescue operator Rega.

Elliott Troutman (President) of Max-Viz stated, "We are pleased by the inclusion of Max-Viz EVS products as an integral technology on this truly next-generation AgustaWestland design. The integration of EVS in addition to SVS, TAWS, and NVG applications for Rega will provide them with an unprecedented level of situational awareness within their demanding operational area".

Bob Yerex (Director of Sales / Marketing) of Max-Viz states. "The addition of EVS in addition to TAWS integrates two of the most critical safety specific technologies to this impressive Grand airframe. Rega and AgustaWestland have cooperatively set an enviable technological benchmark for the helicopter industry, and one that should garner some serious looks from the HEMS industry, as well as the most fly-safe oriented Corporate / VIP operators worldwide".
