March 25, 2009, Portland, OR – Max-Viz announced the sale of six additional EVS-1500 dual field of view infrared sensor systems to the Government of Manitoba Air Services Branch of Winnipeg, Manitoba. These EVS systems are planned to be utilized in conjunction with CL-215 fire suppression bombers and spotter aircraft.
Elliott Troutman (President) of Max-Viz stated, “We are pleased with the Government of Manitoba Air Services Branch’s continued integration of our next generation EVS-1500 systems into their fire suppression mission. The continued enhancement to both their safety and operational effectiveness will have a dramatic positive impact on their program, and Max-Viz is proud to be a part of that continual improvement”.
Max-Viz (www.max-viz.com ) designs and markets the smallest, most reliable, popular and affordable Enhanced Vision System. Max-Viz is the only company dedicated solely to EVS. The systems use real-time infrared sensors, signal processing, and a cockpit display to provide flight crews with actual images of terrain, runways, taxiways, aircraft and other potential obstacles much better than the naked eye during poor visibility conditions such as light fog, haze, smoke, brown / whiteout, light precipitation and darkness. Max-Viz EVS simply improves situational awareness, pilot confidence and operational safety.
