A variety of Active Matrix Liquid Crystal Displays, AMLCDs, are now being deployed in a broad range of aircraft. The most familiar applications are for flight deck instrumentation and passenger entertainment where the benefits of size, weight and legibility of the flat panel display technology are exploited. These benefits are particularly significant in rotor-wing aircraft where weight is of paramount importance and specifically in those helicopters whose role requires the use of mission displays, this class of display generally being larger than those used for flight deck instrumentation. This paper will describe the features of a set of mission displays which are rendered with AMLCD technology and which are being deployed in the EH- 101 helicopter.
