Paper Abstract

This paper is an update to a paper presented in the 1995 SPIE conference, Cockpit Displays II - LCD Backlight Performance over the Military Operating Temperature Range, by M. Marentic. SAIC has developed an LCD backlight system using a fluorescent cavity as the technical approach. The approach has proven performance in several military aircraft displays and a commercial display. The design is readily adaptable to various LCD sizes and 4' by 4' to 10' by 12.5' units have been built and evaluated. In October 1995, SAIC and the U.S. Display Consortium signed a development agreement to transition the backlight approach from engineering to manufacturing. The cost-shared effort is described in this paper. The manufacturing development effort includes the design and construction of lamp manufacturing equipment, phosphor coating and curing equipment and a cellular assembly operation.
