Paper Abstract

Flight instruments have begun to use color active liquid crystal displays (AMLCDs), signaling the beginning of a significant transition from electromechanical and cathode ray tube display designs to AMLCD designs. We have the opportunity with this new technology to establish common products capable of meeting user requirements for sunlight-readable, color and gray scale-capable, high-pixel-count, flat-panel displays for weapon systems. The Wright Laboratory is leading the development of standard and specification documentation for this new generation of display modules based on requirements for U.S. military aircraft. These requirements are similar in many ways to those of both the civil aviation and automotive industries. Accordingly, commonality with these applications is incorporated, where possible, along with the requirements for all military combat applications. Industry and government organizations are involved in this process through workshops and draft review processes. Military procurement specifications for combat system applications may use this information as a source of recommended best practice for this new generation of digital flat panel displays. The draft standard will be revised based upon continuing feedback by early 1995.
