Product Portfolio Supports Open Architecture Aspirations
Rugged displays specialist Industrial Electronic Engineers (IEE) is highlighting enhanced video and smart display products during the Army Aviation Missions Solution Summit.
The company has created a portfolio of product supporting current Open System Architecture aspirations and trends, focused on bringing advanced display and video processing capabilities to military aircraft.
Among the several new interfaces and processing capabilities featured are:
- Ethernet-based video distribution architectures (e.g. GigE Vision, H.264, H.265)
- ARINC-661 Cockpit Display Systems
- ARINC-818 Avionics Digital Video Bus
- Traditional Avionics Busses: MIL-STD-1553B, ARINC-429, etc.
- Video capture and processing for windowing and symbology overlay
IEE also provides solutions for avionic display replacement requirements, including Cathode Ray Tube replacement and traditional instrumentation available in a wide range of sizes and interface options. IEE’s commitment to supporting open systems architecture in avionic display replacement includes:
- Open Mission Systems (OMS) compliant architecture standards enabling faster integration across systems and platforms
- Display products in alignment with the Future Airborne Compatibility Environment (FACE) Technical Standard
“Designed to be installed as either replacement or add-on functions, our display products are architected to minimise the impact on other complex or qualified mission system components,” Steve Motter, Vice-President, Business Development at IEE, explained. “When adding the latest upgraded display features, our customers are careful not to drive costly changes that ripple throughout the avionics system. By offering a combination of backward-compatible legacy interfaces alongside the latest technologies, we allow the avionics system architect the ability to optimise the design for the specific application.”
