CHARLOTTE, N.C., Sept. 7, 2011 — Curtiss-Wright Controls Embedded Computing, a business group of Curtiss-Wright Controls Inc., has introduced the latest addition to its Skyquest family of video displays for air and ground surveillance.
The Alpha Series comprises compact, rugged stand-alone displays for deployed airborne platforms. The Skyquest Alpha-2600-01 10.4-in. and the Skyquest Alpha-3800-01 15-in. displays simplify integration into size-, weight- and power-constrained airborne military, paramilitary, and search-and-rescue platforms.
Both deliver 1024 × 768 (XGA) resolution and feature numerous input/output options for compatibility with the wide range of latest-generation electro-optical turrets, cameras, moving maps and PCs. They use a dual-LED backlighting technology that enables them to deliver a high-brightness full color display for direct sunlight readability in daylight missions, while offering optional night vision goggle-filtered backlighting for night flying operations.
Based on the company’s family of Skyquest AVDU video displays, the series provides users with the standard functionality and performance required from an airborne surveillance mission display and supports a variety of video inputs. The standard high-definition serial digital interface input/output also supports high-quality images from high-definition sensors. The touch-screen option enables users to easily control moving maps or a PC via a USB interface.
The displays offer picture-in-picture, picture-by-picture (split screen), image freeze and image zoom as standard. They feature rugged D38999 connectors for demanding aerospace/military environments and are conduction- and convection-cooled.
