KORTRIJK, Belgium, 17 June 2011. Barco N.V. in Kortrijk, Belgium will showcase a newly introduced avionics Touch Screen Control Unit (TSCU) at the Paris Air Show June 20 to 24 in Le Bourget, France. The touch-screen avionics display is for existing and new aircraft types, and is designed to input and display cockpit information.

Barco will show the capabilities of the prototype in an experimental application at the air show. Barco created the TSCU prototype as one way to upgrade avionics control display units (CDUs), which company officials say are important input and information devices in the cockpit.

The Barco prototype is a multi-touch screen in standard CDU dimensions that avionics systems integrators could use in retrofit and new installations. The device input with several fingers at the same time to help pilots input aircraft control data.

The touch screen offers user-definable content to enable users to define the content presented on-screen and the way it is presented. Touch screen buttons replace physical buttons to suit different aircraft or to display proprietary applications.
