Paper Abstract

A challenging and exciting program is underway to develop an active matrix liquid crystal display for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration--Rockwell Space Shuttle cockpit upgrade. The Multifunction Electronic Display Subsystem program greatly enhances operational capabilities of the Space Shuttle and improves overall system reliability, replacing multiple electromechanical and obsolete cathode ray tubes with 11 flat-panel displays.
