Curtiss-Wright Controls Defense Solutions (CWCDS) has extended the family of Skyquest rugged mission displays for helicopter and fixed-wing platforms with the introduction of an upgraded version of the Skyquest AVDU1626 6.4 display.
The AVDU-1626/7 is a two part display designed for use primarily in cockpit positions where space is very limited and where a full VGA, daylight readable multi-function display is required. The unit is split into front and rear sections to provide a solution for a fold-away installation. A small, short cable connects the front and rear sections of the display.
The enhanced Skyquest AVDU1626 replaces the original fluorescent tube backlighting system. It is a versatile display that enables touchscreen control of connected moving maps. The improved display delivers superior performance LED backlighting for a brighter display and improved dimming control all in the same package. It supports NVG filtered lighting and also utilizes a split box design allowing the display head unit to be installed into tighter spaces.
The AVDU1626 proposes several video inputs, including composite video, S-Video (Y/C), RGB Video or STANAG 3350/B/C.Skyquest AVDU1626 display performance features:
Split-box design to allow for display installation in small spaces
