) 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.
