Paper Abstract

The F-15 Air Navigation Multiple Indicator (ANMI) is the vertical situation display in the F-15A/B and C/D aircraft. The Air Force established the ANMI Prototype Development Program as a form, fit and function replacement for the existing Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) display. Oklahoma City Air Logistics Center (OC-ALC) is the lead agency for the development with financial support from the Producibility, Reliability and Maintainability (PRAM) Program Office at Wright-Patterson. SAIC was selected to design the prototype unit. Figure 1 is an exploded view of this prototype. The F-15 ANMI development required SAIC to address many new challenges. Four unique technical challenges were: (1) the development of a high resolution liquid crystal display (LCD), (2) the interface with an analog signal used to drive the existing CRT, (3) the development of a NTSC output, and (4) the sunlight readable, Night Vision Goggle compatible backlight. These technical aspects of the development are detailed in the body of this paper.
