Duncan Aviation, an authorized Max-Viz dealer, recently completed and certified the installation of the Max-Viz EVS-1000 Enhanced Vision Infrared system in a Dassault Falcon 2000. The Duncan Aviation installations and engineering teams worked closely with the FAA to develop the STC for the first-time installation of this system for display on dedicated, high-resolution, panel-mounted LCD displays, with a camera mounted on the vertical stabilizer.
The Skyquest LCD displays were mounted above the pilot and co-pilot Multi-Function Flight Displays. This location reduces eye scan during flight operations in darkness and inclement weather, Duncan officials say. The STC also allows Duncan Aviation to locate the displays to the left and right of the Primary Flight Displays in later serial number Falcon 2000s while still providing reduced eye scan over conventional side mounted displays.
The EVS-1000 enables pilots to “see through” conditions of poor visibility such as haze, smoke, snow, rain and the darkness of night. The Max-Viz EVS-1000 system uses uncooled, long-wave infrared sensors to gather data about runways, terrain and any potential obstacles on the ground or in flight. These images are enhanced, relayed and displayed on any video-capable display system in the cockpit.
