Aspen Adds Worldwide Terrain Data For ESV

Upgrade Also Improves Resolution In 'Virtually All' Areas

Aspen Avionics Tuesday announced the availability of an improved Jeppesen terrain database that expands the Evolution Synthetic Vision (ESV) operation area to regions outside of the continental United States. The new terrain database significantly improves terrain data resolution in virtually all operating areas, enabling the Evolution System to display synthetic vision most everywhere Aspen customers fly.

“We are pleased that ESV is now available for our international customers, enabling them to enjoy the benefits offered by synthetic vision. ESV’s 3D terrain and traffic, plus the built-in terrain warning system, are indispensable tools that improve pilot situational awareness and enhance safety,” says Brad Hayden, Aspen’s Vice President of Marketing. “Aspen continues to deliver on our promise of making the most advanced technology accessible to aircraft operators all over the world.”

Evolution Synthetic Vision may be added to PFDs and MFDs with an easy software upgrade that can be completed at any Aspen authorized dealer. For new customers, ESV can be added as an option at the time of purchase.

ESV is immediately available for N-registered aircraft operating around the world, and in all international jurisdictions that accept FAA approvals. For aircraft registered in EASA member states, ESV ETSO approval is currently in process and is expected in the first quarter of 2012. EASA STCs corresponding to specific aircraft makes and models held by various EASA Design Organization Approval Holders are expected to be amended throughout 2012 to add ESV capability. Customers are encouraged to check with their Aspen authorized dealer for upgrade eligibility.
