AUSA 2016: IEE Exhibits Line of Ruggedised Displays

IEE, manufacturer of enhanced displays for military applications, is exhibiting an array of ruggedised displays including hand-held devices, ground vehicle Control Display Units (CDUs), and avionics Multi Function Displays (MFDs) on booth #6553.

One of the highlights is a recently introduced 12.1in Smart-Touch CDU designed for Light-Armored Vehicles (LAV’s). This display features low latency video processing, expandable COTS open architecture, and Gigabit Ethernet networked processing. Designed to support a wide range of current and future vetronics architectures including the US Army VICTORY architecture and NATO Generic Vehicle Architecture (GVA).

In addition, IEE is demonstrating an exceptional 6x6in MFD display. Targeted first for the F-15 Multi-Purpose Display, this product provides a Form, Fit, Function, Interface (F3I) direct replacement for previously fielded Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) technology displays. With dramatically improved reliability, this AMLCD display and LED backlight, provide improved functionality with reduced weight, power, and overall operating costs. Designed for modularity and support for expansion to use open standard interfaces, this display will provide full backward compatibility while providing a platform to integrate the latest in video and processing features; such as: digital video (DVI, SMPTE-292), fiber video (ARINC-818), and networked architectures (GigE-Vision).

The use of networked open architecture standards and modularity is at the heart of obtaining the objectives of interoperability and optimisation of size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C),” Steve Motter, Vice President of Business Development for IEE, told MT at AUSA. “We excel in creating cost-efficient integrated display solutions for our customers. By designing in modularity and open standards, we pave the way for low-cost future technology insertions and capability expansions, while efficiently providing the backward compatibility required to extend the life of existing weapon platforms.”
