Designed to meet several military standards (704D, 810F, 461E, 462, DO-160E), General Digital’s 5″ (diagonal) Smart Multifunction Display is well-suited to helicopter and fixed-wing applications. It will feature an sunlight readable LED backlight, EMI glass, heater glass, a rugged enclosure, and PowerPC-based drive electronics. Optionally available will be NVIS compatibility for use with night vision goggles. Data will be accepted on two ARINC 429 channels and the software (DO-178B, Level A) will validate and generate the display page, which, in turn, will be presented to the pilot in a graphical format. A built-in light sensor can automatically adjust the display brightness, enabling the pilot to concentrate on more important matters. In the design phase is a 10.4″ model, as well.
