Military requirements-driven design combined synergistically with extensive leverage of commercial off-the-shelf technology. The process yielded an affordable, ruggedized, 21 inch military airborne color display that can easily be applied to other applications. The monitor provides a high- resolution 1280 by 1024 display with very wide viewing angles and meets various MIL-STD-810 environmental and stress requirements. The display uses a single 1280 by 1024 digital micromirror device (DMD) as a reflective image source. DMDs can be used to build high-resolution, lightweight, high luminance, large or compact display systems for military applications. The commercial availability of the underlying display technology will provide substantial cost leverage to the defense community. This paper describes the design constraints, performance, design, and status of the project.
