NBAA 2015: Esterline CMC Electronics Showcases its Expanded Portfolio of High-Quality Avionics Displays
(National Business Aviation Show – November 17, 2015) Esterline CMC Electronics (CMC) is presenting its newly expanded portfolio of avionics displays at this year’s NBAA, further to the acquisition by Esterline Corporation of the Defense, Aerospace and Training division of Belgium-based Barco N.V. in January 2015. The avionics display activities as well as the training and simulation business are being integrated within Esterline CMC Electronics.
The company now offers an unmatched variety of world-class avionics display capabilities and technologies. CMC’s displays offer superior optical performance, in sizes that range from 4” x 5” to 8” x 20”. The expanded product portfolio features modules and control assemblies, including keyboards, bezels, and control displays; video displays; smart displays, including multi-function displays and CRT to LCD upgrades; avionics as well as avionics software and application services.
Greg Yeldon, president, Esterline CMC Electronics, said, “CMC is now the number one independent supplier of high-quality avionics displays. This recent acquisition underscores Esterline’s drive to invest in value creating technologies for our customers that will contribute to the company’s growth.”
Technological advances introduced in Esterline CMC’s latest displays include true 8-bit colours, with colour and illumination stabilized over temperature and over the life-time of the display; next-generation Light Emitting Diode (LED) illumination with multi-mode capability (day, night, NVIS A & B); and safety critical, multi-touch recognition with optional, adaptive force detection. For customers who require smart platforms such as multi-function displays or avionics computers, CMC’s solutions feature the next generation of MOSArt™ (Modular Open System Architecture) middleware, compatible with both Wind River and Green Hills’ Real Time Operating Systems. MOSArt™ allows multiple applications to be hosted on a single platform while reducing development cycle time and certification risks.
