17-inch rugged mission display for military and law-enforcement introduced by Curtiss-Wright

LAINDON, England, 5 Sept. 2012. Curtiss-Wright Controls Defense Solutions in Laindon, England, is introducing the Skyquest AVDU4300 17-inch wide screen mission rugged display for aerospace, defense, and law-enforcement applications.

For surveillance and navigation applications, as well as for avionics, the AVDU4300 supports optional touch screen control of digital moving maps and the display's quad screen feature enables aircraft or ground vehicle crew members to view as many as four live video images simultaneously.

The display provides 1,080-pixel resolution for high-definition imagery. Several digital and analog inputs connect the AVDU4300 connects to electro-optical turrets either directly or via a video distribution unit.

The display features hard bezel keys for core controls such as power and brightness, and soft-touch screen keys for customized functions such as video recorder control.

The Skyquest AVDU4300 reaches its full potential when integrated with a video distribution unit as a part of the Skyquest Video Management System (CMS) for airborne video management that controls video signals using bezel keys, soft-buttons or discrete control panels.

The Skyquest AVDU4300 has a resistive touchscreen and a built-in heater for operation in cold climates as standard. Two or four video feeds can be displayed simultaneously using the display's picture-in-picture and quad-screen capability. The display supports several video inputs including HD-SD and a day/night discrete switch for lighting mode changes.

Night vision goggle filtering conforming to MIL-STD-3009 NVIS B is available as an option, in which case the display is fitted with a dual LED light source using white LEDs for full color daylight operations to deliver very high brightness for sunlight readability, and NVG filtered LED light at low levels for nighttime operations.
