Lexavia EVS Debuts on First Production Eclipse 550- October 21, 2013
LAS VEGAS, NV. — October 21, 2013 — Lexavia Integrated Systems’ latest enhanced vision systems sensor, the LFS6000, is now available for the Eclipse 550 twin-engine jet. This advanced technology sensor can be seen on the first production Eclipse 550 at the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) Annual Meeting and Convention, Oct. 22-24 in Las Vegas, Nev., exhibit C10844. In addition, representatives from Lexavia will also be available in exhibit C9238, showcasing their other advanced aviation technology products.
The LFS6000 EVS sensor is the lightest and most aerodynamic enhanced vision system sensor available today. Measuring only 4.85 inches in length, 2.1 inches in width and 1.42 inches in height, this ultra low profile sensor and housing were specifically designed to be recessed into the Eclipse 550 airframe, significantly reducing both ice accretion and drag. Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) approval on the LFS6000 for Eclipse 550 and other aircraft is expected as furloughed FAA personnel return to work.
“Lexavia EVS sensors are the best in their category technology-wise, as well as being the lightest and most aerodynamic. With one single point of installation, the structural impact to the aircraft is minimal,” said Bill Van Zwoll, Lexavia’s Director of Sensors and Integrated Products.
Configured with high-performance 640 x 480 resolution, the LFS6000 uses the latest generation of vanadium oxide long-wave infrared technology and provides 2x electronic zoom, polarity control and image enhancement. Designed to directly interface with the Avio IFMS in the Eclipse 550, the LFS6000 provides real time enhanced vision capability during darkness, smoke, bad weather and other limited visibility situations. This allows pilots to better identify terrain, structures, vehicles and other aircraft on and near runways, offering added situational awareness, and increasing safety.
“Advanced technologies like EVS enhance the safety of aircraft and offer pilots added capability and peace-of-mind when flying in adverse situations. We are proud to be included on the Eclipse 550 and look forward to providing pilots the added situational awareness and increased safety that enhanced vision systems offer,” added Van Zwoll.

Lexavia, Eclipse Partnership Takes Flight - November 1, 2012
ORLANDO, FL — October 31, 2012 — Safety of flight can never be overstated or taken for granted. With the addition of the Lexavia as the Enhanced Vision System supplier for the Eclipse 550 Jet, Eclipse Aerospace offers one more measure to assist pilots in flying and arriving safely.
The LFS6000 sensor is the lightest and most aerodynamic Enhanced Vision System sensor on the market. At 4.85 inches in length, 2.1 inches in width, and 1.42 inches in height, what is already an ultra low profile sensor housing, is made even more so because it is designed to be recessed into the Eclipse 550 airframe. With this design, the LFS6000 rises only 1 inch in height which reduces both ice accretion and drag.
"Our sensor is by far better than anything else in category on the market. The sensor housing is so small that it fits in the palm of your hand and with one single point of installation, the structural impact to the aircraft is minimal," said Bill Van Zwoll, Lexavia Director of Sensors and Integrated Products.
Configured with high performance 640 x 480 resolution, the LFS6000 uses the most recent generation VOx long wave infrared technology. In addition, the Lexavia sensor provides 4x electronic zoom, polarity control, and image enhancement. The LFS6000 is also designed to interface with the Avio IFMS in the Eclipse 550, with the infrared depiction being displayed on the MFD in the cockpit.
Van Zwoll said, "We are truly excited to be the EVS supplier for Eclipse Aerospace. As we continue to build this partnership, we look forward to providing pilots of the Eclipse 550 with top notch EVS sensors which offer increased safety and unparalleled piece-of-mind."
High Speed - Low Drag! - July 2012
Enter the LFS6000 the pinnicle of High Speed - Low Drag solutions.
Lexavia puts a premium on Research & Development. Recently we conducted Lewice experiments and 3D airflow modelling analysis to study our new LFS6000's housing and it's performance.
Incredible. Not only did our unit's housing perform excellent, it showed breakthrough airflow results and low drag aerodynamics in consistency with our design. These were the results we needed to know, The LFS6000 is the next step in the evolution. The LFS6000 represents superior design and surpasses anything we've created to date.
Our research and development department is constantly striving to bring you breakthroughs in Enhanced Vision Systems.
