Max-Viz has received supplemental type certification for its EVS-1000 enhanced vision system on Dassault Falcon 900-series business jets. The uncooled EVS-1000 is being installed on a widening range of aircraft as an aid to flightcrew situational awareness.

Portland, Oregon-based Max-Viz says its system is now also available on Bombardier Challengers equipped with tail-mounted satellite communications and television antennas. The radome supplier has made provisions for the sensor, which, on business jets, is mounted high on the tail to provide a better view of the taxiway.

Max-Viz says its system is now certificated on the Challenger 600, 601 and 604, Bombardier Global Express, Falcon 50/50EX and 900A/B/C/EX and the Bell 212/412 helicopter. Approvals are pending on the Gulfstream GIV/IV-SP, Learjet 35, Pilatus PC-12 and Raytheon Beech King Air 200/350, as well as the Eurocopter EC145 and Sikorsky S76 helicopters.
