PRAUGE – Universal Avionics (UA), an Elbit Systems Company, is partnering with AerSale, Inc. to develop an FAA Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for the ClearVision Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS) on the Airbus A320 aircraft. FAA certification for the retrofit upgrade is expected by the end of first quarter of 2020, with CAAC and EASA STC validation to immediately follow.
The ClearVision EFVS solution includes the SkyLens Head-Wearable Display (HWD), a cost-effective and more modern alternative to a traditional fixed Head-Up Display (HUD). The SkyLens high-transparency visor presents high-resolution symbology/imagery, including Enhanced Vision System (EVS), Synthetic Vision System (SVS), and Combined Vision System (CVS) for superior see-through transmission in all weather conditions, day and night.
The state-of-the-art Head-Wearable Display requires significantly less installation efforts, and can often be installed in just a few days, compared to a fixed HUD which requires disassembly of the aircraft cockpit and can take weeks – all while the aircraft is grounded.
“We are excited to partner with AerSale to offer a high performance EFVS and wearable HUD solution to the A320 market,” said Dror Yahav, UA CEO. “This STC will allow A320 operators to install EFVS breakthrough technology, for the first time, in a commercially affordable way."
