Airborne Systems

B2KH specialises in Airborne Systems and developed a range of rugged displays based on a common module approach to support our Mission Systems equipment. Consultation with ISR customers across a variety of platforms led to the development of the Airborne Displays. We found that many users had slightly different display requirements and it was not a case of ‘one size fits all, and so we were able to approach a solution with a clean sheet of paper. It was obvious from early on that there were many formats of inputs in their systems and so we ensured that we could add modules to accept different source signals. 4 inputs with different viewing options which could be easily selected and another requirement alongside the usual day/night and touch screen option.

The Airborne Display range covers 10.4” through to 21” screen sizes, or larger on request,  and are available with either optically bonded touch screens or toughened glass. Day or Night operation with NVIS compatibility is standard.

Airborne Systems require lightweight, yet robust units and the ability to connect to multiple sources, which are almost by definition, of different standards. B2KH Airborne Displays can be configured at manufacture to interface to these sources and display them as HD. The displays provide for downstream recording of the displayed picture as an SDI stream.
