Gulfstream Aerospace received FAA certification to use the second-generation Gulfstream enhanced-vision system (EVS II) on the midsize G150. The system is available for both new and in-service G150s, Gulfstream said. Using an infrared camera mounted in the airplane’s nose, the EVS II projects real-time images of the aircraft’s surroundings on a multifunction display. EVS II is 22 pounds lighter, has four times the computational power and features four times the memory of Gulfstream’s original EVS.
