Forward Vision CEO and President Patrick Farrell said he is pleased that the EVS-100 has found applications outside of general aviation, especially those that support the environment.
“Since we began Forward.Vision, we’ve focused primarily on the advantages of additional safety and utility of enhanced vision systems. Happily, conservation and forestry departments have discovered their own advantages to having access to the EVS-100. We think the Lindbergh’s would have been proud of how our technology is used to support the environment.”
Knox Bridges, president of the Lindbergh Foundation, said he is impressed by the possibilities that the infrared EVS-100 system provides for supporting wildlife and the environment. “The Lindbergh Foundation supports all efforts where technology is used to protect and foster the environment. For example, EVS-100 provides an economical tool for conservationists to protect and survey animals.” Bridges added, “In the case of our forestry departments, the ability of the infrared cameras to “see” hot spots, allows for the early detection and intervention before forest fires destroy not just the environment, but also homes and private property.”
The designation of Aviation Green Partner is reserved for certain individuals and organizations using technology creatively to help solve the challenges of key environmental issues, according to foundation chairman John King of King Schools. “The Aviation Green Investment Program is an alternative to carbon offset programs for aviation operators who want to demonstrate that they are sensitive to environmental issues and willing to take action”.
For 30 years, the Lindbergh Foundation has supported scientific research and education projects that have touched lives in 26 countries and on every continent.
