Paper Abstract

This paper explains the use of CIELUV delta E* calculations for the optimization of colors for avionic displays serving as primary flight displays (PFD). It explains how to choose a white reference, and over what range to use the equations, to get consistent results. Example delta E* values that could be achieved on a typical primary flight display are provided, along with a recommendation of what represents "clearly discriminable" colors. A spreadsheet implementing the delta E* equations is available to simplify the calculations and present the results in graphical form.
