Eclipse selects Lexavia for EVS
Eclipse Aerospace has announced a supplier contract with Lexavia Systems for the enhanced vision system in the Eclipse 550 Jet, scheduled for first delivery in the third quarter of 2013.
“The addition of Enhanced Vision adds yet another level of safety to the Eclipse 550. EVS, along with Synthetic Vision, Auto Throttles, and the other features of the new Eclipse 550 avionics platform brings an incredible amount of technology to the aircraft, while at the same time reducing pilot workload. Eclipse continues to work relentlessly to build the safest, most cost effective, and easiest to operate aircraft in its class,” said Cary Winter, SVP of engineering & global service.
“Lexavia sensors offer twice the resolution at half the price. The increased resolution and four-times zoom capability of the LFS6000 allow pilots to clearly view runway incursions and other hazards with enough time to safely execute the missed approach. We are looking forward to bringing this capability to the Eclipse 550,” said Bill Van Zwoll, Lexavia director of sensors and integrated products.
