Essex Receives Exclusive Marketing & Sales Rights for EVAS to All Government Agencies
Essex is pleased to announce their exclusive marketing and sales rights to all government agencies for EVASTM, Emergency Vision Assurance System, a safety product from VisionSafe Corporation.
EVAS displaces all smoke in the line of sight, providing a clear space of air through which the pilot can see vital instruments and the flight path. If standard smoke evacuation procedures are not sufficient, EVAS can provide emergency backup, giving the pilot visual ability to safely land the plane.
This patented system is FAA tested and certified to ensure pilot vision in the presence of dense, continuous smoke. When needed the pilot removes the Inflatable Vision Unit (IVU) from the EVAS case and pulls a tab to activate the system. A battery powered blower draws in smoky air while filtering out visible particles. The filtered air is then pumped out to a flexible air duct connected to the transparent IVU, causing it to inflate. This IVU gives the pilot clear vision to essential flight instruments and to the forward flight path. An internal light also provides illumination to the flight instruments.
After activation, EVAS is continually pressurized with filtered cockpit air to maintain volume and preserve a clear view. EVAS is a self-contained system, designed to run for two hours on the battery supply, pump and filter contained in each storage case. This compact system is very easy to install and has a 10 year warranty.
FAA regulations require smoke detectors, fire extinguishers, smoke goggles and oxygen masks onboard aircraft. However, these systems and equipment for flight safety might be useless if pilots cannot see to control and land the aircraft. In smoke-related emergencies, EVAS can provide a clear view to safety.
