Max-Viz EVS Exceeds Performance Expectations On Wildfire
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
“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.
