IEE Inc. engineers developed the 10.1-inch Widescreen Ultra Extended Graphics Array (WUXGA) multifunction display (MFD) as a high-performance, heavy-duty, full-color, very high bright WUXGA active-matrix liquid-crystal display (AMLCD) for fixed- and rotary-wing airborne applications. The very wide viewing angle display features a selectable dual-mode LED backlight for sunlight-readable daytime operation and night vision imaging system (NVIS)-compatible operation for night.

IEE uses an index-matched optical bonding technique to create an optical stack with an integral heater for low-temperature operations, EMI shielding, and a cover glass featuring anti-reflective/anti-glare treatments. A programmable eight-way joystick and encoder knobs complement the bezel keys to provide a full-featured operator interface supporting the control of a wide range of applications. This 10.1-inch rugged display is housed in an all-aluminum bezel that is electrically and environmentally sealed to protect against foreign objects and liquid penetration through the front fascia. The brightness of the display is 1,100 cd/m2 and has a contrast ratio of 800:1, has a viewing angle of ± 85° H / ± 85° V, and will operate in temperatures ranging between -40 °C to +55 °C.
