Abstract
Recent years have seen a migration by industry away from Cathode Ray Tubes towards solid state alternatives. In the Aerospace industry, head down displays in cockpits no longer use CRT technology and head up displays are set to follow suit. This paper describes a program of research and development that has explored the technical issues involved in producing an all digital, solid state illuminated HUD, and describes the results obtained from testing the flyable pre-production unit.
