Bombardier Enhanced Vision System now available for new Challenger 605 jet

Bombardier announced today that it is now offering a Bombardier Enhanced Vision System (BEVS) and Head-up Guidance System (HGS ®) for the new widebody Challenger 605 jet. Federal Aviation Administration certification is scheduled to be complete in the third quarter of fiscal year 2009.

BEVS will provide pilots with significantly improved situational awareness and the ability to observe runway lights and the runway environment in difficult operating conditions, such as low visibility and or darkness. BEVS also enhances safety by helping to identify runway incursions.

"We are thrilled to offer this significant option to our Challenger 605 jet operators, who will soon benefit from increased safety for flight crews and passengers," said Pierre Gabriel Côté, president, Bombardier Business Aircraft.

Operators selecting BEVS benefit from several advantages over other systems. The SureSight ® CMA-2600i InfraRed camera provides superior sensitivity and advanced processing of real-time images in darkness or low-visibility conditions. The camera's positioning on the upper portion of the aircraft nose places the BEVS directly in line with the pilot's visual reference point and makes cockpit views more natural. It provides images of the approach, runway lighting and of terrain scenery that are displayed on the pilot's HGS and on the co-pilot's Multi Function Display, a head-down display that provides the same level of situational awareness for better communication during critical phases of flight.

The BEVS HGS display features a wide field-of-view digital head-up display with a liquid crystal display image source. The system provides pilots with the same comprehensive flight-guidance symbology whether the EVS image is displayed or not, offering improved situational awareness, stable visual approaches, improved touchdown precision and greater safety through eyes-outof-the-flight-deck operation.

BEVS is being developed in cooperation with Rockwell Collins, the overall HGS and Enhanced Vision System integrator, and CMC Electronics, supplier of the SureSight CMA-2600i Integrated Sensor System, a new development of the currently certified CMA-2600.
