Parvus rugged display systems selected for Navy P-8A maritime patrol aircraft

Boeing Co. avionics designers needed rugged military information display systems for the future P-8A Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft—a converted Boeing 737 jetliner that will replace the P-3 Orion turboprop. They found their rugged displays solution from Parvus Corp. in Salt Lake City.

Parvus won a contract from Boeing to supply the flight test display (FTD) and the instrumentation crew station control panel (ICCP) for the Poseidon aircraft—a long-range anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance Navy aircraft, which began flight tests this fall and will go to the fleet in 2013.

Boeing chose the Parvus the DuraVIS 4300 military display as the Poseidon’s ICCP, and the Parvus DuraVIS 3006 rugged display as the aircraft’s FTS. The 4300 tactical display presents flight, sensor, mapping, and advisory information for the P-8A aircraft. The DuraVIS 4300 is qualified to MIL-STD-810F, MIL-STD-704E, and MIL-STD-461E standards for shock, vibration, and operating in temperatures as cold as -20 degrees Celsius.

The DuraVIS 3006 6.5-inch TFT rugged LCD display is 1.5 inches thick, weighs three pounds, and offers daylight readability. It is packaged in a hardened aluminum housing and has an anti-glare protective acrylic cover for influence protection and explosive decompression.
