The Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle (EFV) is typical of a new generation of Military vehicle. These new vehicles utilise information technology to provide substantial force multiplier and enhanced survival gains for the Marines. Larger, high performance displays with an integral computing capability are an essential element of these new systems. This paper reports on the development of an 18.1” display for the EFV. We describe the functionality, construction and performance of a “smart display” that utilises COTS components adapted to a severe ground-mobile environment, from concept to prototype test and delivery. We also indicate design enhancements that will take this system into volume production with maximized performance and minimised obsolescence risk for a system that is likely to evolve over a long operational lifespan.
