Abstract
This paper describes the top level architecture and requirements of the resulting Cockpit Display Generator (CDG). The architecture provides the graphical and video processing power needed to drive future high resolution display devices and generate more natural panoramic 3D formats. The CDG will provide multichannel, high performance 2D and 3D graphics, and real-time video manipulation. The architecture is designed for a compact implementation in the PAVE PILLAR environment using high-speed fiber optic networks. The CDG sustains the needs of the Panoramic Cockpit Control and Display System 2000 cockpit; it can be extensible to higher performance levels in PAVE PACE architectures.
