|Format||Member Price||Non-Member Price|
The cockpit design in the new JAS 39 Gripen combat aircraft is based on an electronic computer-controlled display system. This display system, EP 17, has four areas of presentation: one Head-Up Display (HUD) and three Multi-Function Displays (MFD). The HUD is equipped with a diffraction optics combiner which gives the display high visibility within a large filed-of-view, and with minimal visual interference to the outside world. The Multi-Function Displays in the front panel are a Flight Data Display showing flight and system data, a Horizontal Situation Display that superimposes tactical information on a digital map and a Multi-Sensor Display with, primarily, radar information. This system is supported by a Display Processor (DP) comprising computers, graphic generators, sensor information processors and a digital map memory. The DP also includes an integrated video recording system for recording analog and digital sensor video, bus data and voice.
