Emergency Medical Services (EMS)
Max-Viz, Inc. has provided EVS to the EMS industry since its inception. We have large scale programs with most major EMS rotary wing OEMs and multi-year POs with two of the top three EMS helicopter manufacturers in the world. Our motto is “See Clearly, Fly Safely” and the NTSB and FAA definitely agree. Since February of 2000, the FAA has identified affordable “look-ahead devices,” like EVS, as one of the very best ways to prevent CFIT, as published in its Joint Safety Analysis Team report that year.

EVS offers an unprecedented opportunity to increase safety and mission success in all EMS fleets. The ability to see through smoke, haze and light fog, to accurately perceive varied terrain, tree lines, landmarks, landing zones and obstructions are priceless to a pilot’s situational awareness.
The combination of EVS and NVG technologies together are looked at as the single most dynamic mitigation tool available within the industry to prevent CFIT occurrences. “When effectively integrated into night flight operations, the collective use of EVS and NVG technology provide the principal situational awareness tool available anywhere in the industry for EMS operations,” as supported cooperatively by one of the most respected names in the NVG industry, Adam Aldous, President of Night Flight Concepts.
Whether fixed or rotary wing applications, CFIT potential and loss of situational awareness affects the entire market segment. EVS provides visual cues that enhance either operation and reduces stress and the hazards of EMS flight operations.
