Collins Aerospace is beginning installation of its new Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS) for Boeing 737 aircraft. Texel Air, operating out of Bahrain International Airport, will be among the first operators to receive the new system that includes Collins’ EVS-3600, a multi-spectral imaging sensor to “see through” poor visibility and darkness better than the human eye.
Historically used by military and business aircraft, the newly certified system will allow widespread adoption of EFVS by airlines for the first time. The EVS-3600 uses multiple infrared and visible light cameras providing pilots with a head-up view that exceeds natural vision. When viewed on a head-up display, EFVS increases situational awareness and enables operations in low visibility conditions.
Texel Air’s fleet of 737 FlexCombiTM aircraft can be configured to suit a wide range of cargo and passenger flights in the Middle East and North Africa. The EVS-3600 system adds additional capability to these versatile aircraft allowing them to operate safely and efficiently in the most difficult locations and environments.Email Post to a Friend
