Application of CRT Displays to the Cockpit of Tomorrow 801168
The CRT display applications in the current generation air transport aircraft are limited to weather radar displays and a few navigation displays. Flight decks of the aircraft of tomorrow, however, will be dominated by CRT displays. The CRT's will cover multiple applications such as flight instruments (ADI, HSI), engine displays, head-up displays, caution warnings, and aircraft systems. This paper describes these new CRT display systems, their capabilities, and their impact on aircraft operation.
