Lockheed is currently involved in research and development efforts aimed at applying new concepts to the flight station. TriStar One, Lockheed's flight test L-101 l, is flying a trial installation of color electronic displays on a portion of its instrument panel. Modifications made to the L-1011 Flight Management System control the arrival of the aircraft at its destination to an exact time. This presentation will describe the evolutionary process that has led to the development of airborne digital systems and the integration of new emerging technologies such as color electronic displays into the cockpit. Development of these and other concepts will provide payoffs in the areas of flight safety, fuel conservation, and improved terminal area operations.
