Paper Abstract

Accounts are presented of the current and near-term development status of a major American commercial aircraft manufacturer''s integrated cockpit-display systems, as well as the character and anticipated improvements of prospective development trends. The state-of-the-art is illustrated by the cockpit displays of the MD-11 airliner, which employs both CRTs and liquid-crystal displays with a sensor suite that encompasses a dual digital air data system, three separate inertial reference units, X-band weather radar, and radar altimeter. Satellite-based communications and navigation systems are under development.
