The Air Force KC-135, Navy P-3, and Army MH-60 aircraft are in the process of upgrading their electromechanical instruments with active matrix liquid crystal multifunction displays. These multifunction display products provide improved reliability and also provide added functionality to present multiple instruments, weather radar, and system status information. The flexibility of these systems also provides backup for flight critical instruments. This paper will present display performance aspects including luminance, chromaticity, contrast, display formats, the results of bench testing, and flight testing.
