Raytheon avionics engineers will retrofit 130 center display units (CDUs) for Lockheed Martin F-16 jet fighters under terms of an $8.7 million U.S. Air Force contract. F-16 CDUs are large, rectangular liquid crystal displays (LCDs) that provide high-resolution sensor imaging, situational awareness, and real-time processing and imaging of flight safety information. The CDUs are part of a glass-cockpit design for the F-16 that replaces analog gauges and preserves flight safety. The center displays offer crisp imaging during the day, as well as at night with night-vision goggles.
