Product description

Best-in-class optical performance
Because of the in-house developed backlight technology, the LAD is NVIS class B and A compliant, and doesn’t compromise on the full color gamut performance in day mode. The display output stays the same over time and temperature because of the white point stabilization. The in-house optical bonding of the display makes sure that the reflections are nearly zero, resulting in a full sunlight readability at minimal power consumption.

High modularity standard
The modularity of this display is unprecedented. The keyboard is front mounted, easy for on-aircraft replacement. The multitouch touch screen is compatible with any type of stylus, even all gloves.

Minimized SWaP-C signature
Both in new cockpits as in cockpit upgrades, the RDU-4208 LAD is fit for confined spaces like in trainer and fighter cockpits, still keeping the ejection seat trajectory clear.

The RDU-4208 LAD is Full MIL-STD qualified (Environmental MIL-STD-810G and power qualification MIL-STD-704E).
