Astronautics Corporation of America is introducing a new family of flight and mission-critical displays called Ibex.This new family of displays is light weight, rugged,and designed to meet the requirements of military helicopters and aircraft in all environments.“The Ibex family are light weight, passively-cooled flight and mission-critical displays designed  for the highest reliability in the toughest environments,” said Astronautics President Chad Cundiff.

“We are using a semi-smart, scalable firmware electronics platform that can be easily tailored across a range of display sizes and interfaces. Ibexis designed for high-brightness cockpits that also require best-in-class contrast ratios. The display family supports touchscreen or bezel button configurations.”

Ibex interfaces to mission systems via advanced graphics interfaces, including ARINC 818. Ibex displays are qualified to shock, high altitude, and extreme temperatures to meet all mission requirements.The first 5×5-inch Ibex production units will deliver to customers in the second quarter of 2019. Ibex also supports multiple display sizes—6×8-inch,8×10-inch, 18×8-inch, etc.—through its flexible core architecture.

Astronautics’ midsize and in-house design capabilities enabled the rapid development of this new display family, incorporating key building blocks from its proven Badger integrated system and RoadRunner™electronic flight instrument families. Ibex uses its flexible platform for customization based on specific customer needs.
