Fully qualified to established environmental standards, the displays can be used in standalone mode, where multiple video input capability can be used to present a number of configurable operator views, or as part of a Curtiss-Wright video management system (VMS) alongside video distribution switches and recorders. When used in a VMS, the displays’ touchscreen capability allows all the functionality of these units to be easily controlled by the operator. 

The displays feature multiple control inputs including Ethernet, CANBus, RS-232/RS-422 and USB, and the most widely used video interfaces including HD-SDI, VGA and composite video, offering maximum flexibility to system integrators. They are fully interoperable with the latest turret and downlink solutions on the market. 


The versatile displays offer touchscreen operated “soft” keys for customized functions as well as “hard” bezel keys.The display comes with a five-wire resistive touchscreen as standard and can be customized to operate with today’s leading digital moving maps. Multiple control interfaces are available to communicate with peripheral equipment such as USB, Ethernet and RS-422/232. The popular built-in quad screen feature allows users to view four images on a single display, giving the operator his critical mission video at a single glance.

Video Management

The displays are powerful products used on their own, but add even more value when fully integrated as a part of a video management system. The VMS is the ultimate solution for video management in an aircraft allowing complete control over all video signals in the system. By using video distribution such as the VDSU-1420 HD Switching Unit at the heart of the system, the display operator is able to select any video signals at any time.

Day Vision

The displays offer market-leading daylight visibility by means of powerful LED backlights and optical bonding to reduce internal reflection and enhance contrast. The mission displays are suitable for use in conditions of high incident light including open cockpits.

Night Vision

Night Vision Goggle (NVG) compatibility to MIL-STD3009 NVIS B as standard. The display is fitted with a dual-LED light source including NVG-filtered LEDs at low levels for NVG operations. All front-panel LEDs and key backlighting are NVG-filtered. The brightness of the bezel lighting is controlled along with the brightness control of the display, but can be customized to connect to an aircraft lighting bus.
