ATLANTA, 29 Jan. 2009.Video Display Corp.'s Aydin Displays Inc. subsidiary won a multiple-year contract by General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems, Fairfax, Va., to supply the U.S. Navy with 24-inch rugged flat-panel monitors for the Common Displays System (CDS) program.
The company will deliver Aydin displays for the Navy's CDS consoles in support of DDG and Aegis Modernization.
CDS is a family of displays that will be used across platform systems on Navy surface ships, submarines, and aircraft. CDS is designed to meet open architecture and open business model requirements with minimized lifecycle costs that will ensure its interoperability and the ability to handle frequent updates of the latest technology, says a representative.
The CDS product family includes a series of display configurations based on standardized interchangeable components.
For this part of the CDS program, Aydin will provide General Dynamics with a 24-inch 4424 Rugged Flat Panel Display, specifically designed to meet the stringent shock, vibration, EMI, and temperature requirements of the U.S. Navy while providing superior visual performance under all conditions.
The design and qualification of the displays is scheduled to be completed in early 2009, with production orders commencing shortly thereafter.
