RAF Orders 400 Display Units For Tornado Jet Fleet
(Source : BAE Systems ; issued Sept. 12, 2000)

"The UK Royal Air Force has placed a multi-million pound order for 400 Active Matrix Liquid Crystal Displays (AMLCD) for its Tornado GR4 ground attack and F3 fighter fleets.

The display, known as a colour TV-Tab, is a "drop fit replacement" for the original monochrome displays and gives a significant reduction in life cycle costs. The new displays also pave the way for a full colour upgrade.

The order with BAE SYSTEMS Avionic Systems Division at South Gyle in Edinburgh for the colour TV-Tab cockpit displays follows an initial contract, won by competitive tender, for 24 units that have successfully completed extensive flight trials.

This will be one of the world's first AMLCD displays to enter service in a fast jet cockpit. One particular benefit of the new displays is their readability in full sunlight, a considerable improvement over the existing displays. This will confer operational benefits, particularly when using video imagery from forward-looking infra-red (FLIR) sensors and from targeting pods such as TIALD (Thermal Imaging and Laser Designator) and CLDP (Convertible Laser Designator Pod).
