KORTRIJK, Belgium, 27 Oct. 2006. Systems designers at Selex Sistemi Integrati S.p.A. in Rome are choosing 20-inch lightweight rugged displays from Barco in Kortrijk, Belgium, the combat management system (CMS) of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) navy's Corvette vessels.

The Selex Sistemi Integrati CMS gathers, correlates and filters data and information coming from naval vessels and co-operating forces sensors and compiles, maintains and displays the tactical situation.

For the CMS upgrade, the Italian company chose Barco's TL-351, a 20-inch, 1600-by-1200-pixel lightweight and rugged display designed for applications where space and weight are critical.

The TL-351 features active-matrix LCD technology. Barco's TL display series comes in a variety of bezel configurations and mounting options, and offers system integrators a display solution with an excellent price-performance ratio.

In 2004, Barco's 20-inch, 1280-by-1024-pixel modular rugged flat displays (MRFD-251) were chosen by Selex Sistemi Integrati for the CMS of the Italian and French Horizon-class frigates. In 2005, Barco's 20-inch, 1600-by-1200-pixel MRFD-351 displays were chosen for the CMS of the new Italian aircraft carrier Cavour.

The first TL-351 displays have been delivered to Selex Sistemi Integrati in September 2006. For more information contact Barco online at www.barco.com.
