Elbit Systems and Nicarnica Aviation are now offering Volcanic Ash Detection capabilities, as part of Elbit Systems new ClearVision EVS product for business jets.

The combined solution will enable pilots to avoid flying into contaminated areas while still maintaining safe operation in areas influenced by volcanic eruptions.

The two companies signed a Memorandum of Understanding in July this year, stating their exclusive cooperation for the implementation of Nicarnicas volcanic ash detection technology into Elbit Systems Enhanced Vision System (EVS) cameras.

Nicarnica has developed AVOID (Airborne Volcanic Object Imaging Detector) to detect volcanic ash in the atmosphere 100 kilometers ahead of an aircraft, allowing the pilot to detect and safely avoid hazardous ash clouds.

Implementing the technology into ClearVision EVS will enable customers to achieve additional critical functionality without additional equipment.
