Achieving Full-Color, Day or Night Readability for Flat-Panel Displays

In order to meet the requirements of current-generation military ruggedized displays and monitors, various technology innovations have been developed that allow for an enhanced user experience. Accommodating all of these needs has become a challenge for design engineers, especially when it comes to aircraft displays and monitors.

The avionics systems used in military aircraft incorporate flat-panel displays that must be readable in all levels of light. However, many traditional displays do not provide color uniformity in ambient lighting with night-vision goggles (NVG) compatibility unless night-vision imaging system (NVIS) filters are applied. Despite the need for flat-panel displays to support seamless sunlight to night-vision transitions with full-color, these NVIS filters continue to be used in military and aerospace applications
