Kaiser Electronics has selected Three-Five Systems Inc.'s Brillian Microdisplays and drive electronics to be the primary microdisplay source in the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) program, the U.S. military's latest fighter aircraft program.

Two small rear projection displays, each with three Brillian 1280 SXGA Microdisplays, will be used to form a unique 20-inch by 8-inch smart color display. This panoramic cockpit display is expected to provide critical flight status, operational, tactical and other information to the pilot.

With slightly modified folded optics, the projection systems that utilize Three-Five's imagers can be used in a variety of systems requiring displays from 5-inch square to 32-inch diagonal. The versatility of projection displays makes them a viable candidate technology for both military and commercial cockpit designs for new aircraft as well as cockpit redesigns for existing aircraft, resulting in lower development costs and faster time to market.

"The JSF program is exciting for us in that it is an excellent application to fully demonstrate the superior performance capabilities of our microdisplays," said Joe Riccio, Three-Five's director of StrategiPrograms/Microdisplays. "Projection displays, such as those developed with our microdisplays, offer luminance, contrast ratio, and chromaticity equal to or superior to AMLCDs. In addition, projection systems with our microdisplays can be made with higher resolution and the flexibility to be designed into a variety of avionics applications."
