Seeing Through The Smoke And The Fire

Max-Viz EVS Exceeds Performance Expectations On Wildfire Suppression Tests

Max-Viz and One Sky Aviation recently completed a successful series of tests on the performance of the Max-Viz EVS-1500 dual optical field of view sensor on wildfires in central Alaska.

“This important testing was necessary to confirm performance expectations of the EVS-1500 sensor over its predecessor, the EVS-1000, specifically in a fire environment” states Bob Yerex, VP Sales for Max-Viz. “Our STC development partner, Cary Foster from One Sky Aviation in Anchorage, has an EVS-1500 installed on his personal PA-30 aircraft and some exceptional digital recording equipment which allowed us to document the fire flight profile and then, after the flight, to analyze the video to validate system performance”.

“We all expected the EVS-1500 with its enhanced dynamic range management and optimized software would provide an incredible image of not only the dynamic fire lines but also the surrounding ambient environment which could contain obstacles, higher trees, or mountainous terrain,” said Foster.

“The fiscal savings and performance improvements of EVS aided firefighting flight operations will dramatically change the safety and effectiveness of aircraft operating with the EVS-1500 system and fire management as a whole," added Yerex.
