It was disclosed that Boeing took the opportunity to demonstrate a potential interim Enhanced Remote Vision System (eRVS)to Van Ovost during the visit.
Boeing is working on RVS 2.0 to fix the troubled system currently installed on KC-46A fleet. The deficiencies of the system in its current form has forced the air force to place operational restrictions on KC-46 refueling.
RVS 2.0 will include 4K color cameras with proper viewing geometry, operator stations with larger screens, a laser ranger for refueling aircraft distance measurement and boom assistance augmented reality.
