cameraThe EVS3™ is a low cost, light weighxt thermal imaging camera designed for commercial and Erecreational sport aviation including arial firefighting. At 2.9 lbs the EVS3™ can be installed in a wide variety of aircraft from helicopters to fixed wing airplanes and is available with your choice of three lens options for a wide (46°), medium (35°) or narrow (25°) field of view.


The EVS3™ Camera enhances a pilot's night vision by allowing him or her to see terrain and other aircraft at long ranges, even in total darkness, light fog, dust and heavy smoke. Designed for integration with existing multi-function displays, with a simple “power in and standard video out” interface, it includes FLIR’s patented Dynamic Digital Detail Enhancement (DDE) assuring excellent image quality regardless of scene dynamics, revealing scene detail missed by more expensive competitive systems.


River City Choppers has exclusively designed mounts for the EC120B and the AS350/355 aircraft with approval pending from Transport Canada and the FAA.
