Source: L-3 Aviation Products
The Boeing Company awarded a contract to L-3 Display Systems to provide production Multi-Purpose Displays (MPDs) for the AH-64 Apache helicopter. The MPD is a form, fit, function display that is backward- and forward-compatible with the current MPDs used on the aircraft.
The design is expected to minimize life-cycle cost, enhance the display resolution and increase situational awareness while providing improved product reliability, obsolescence protection and provisions for increased performance.
