Gulfstream Orders More EVS Units from Kollsman

To meet upcoming production needs, Gulfstream has placed a $20 million order with Kollsman for an undisclosed number of enhanced vision systems (EVS).

The Kollsman EVS is standard equipment in the Gulfstream 550 and 450 and an option in the 500 and 350. It is also a retrofit choice for a range of the Savannah, Ga. manufacturer’s jets, including the GV and GIV-SP. Properly trained crews flying with the HUD-based infrared vision systems are approved to descend below published minimums on certain approaches as long as they can see the airport using the EVS image.

To date the $500,000 system has been installed in more than 100 Gulfstreams.
