By Aeromag Asia 01-Oct-2016


Esterline Control & Communication Systems (ECCS), a division of Esterline Corporation will be showcasing its expertise in advanced human-machine interface (HMI) solutions at the 2016 AUSA Annual Meeting and Exposition, October 3-5, 2016, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, Washington D.C.

Four of the key Esterline brands - Korry, Mason, Codis and Racal Acoustics - will be exhibited at the show, providing a range of HMI solutions.

Esterline will showcase the Codis GVD-126 display, its new GVA-compliant video display. This latest addition to its line-up of Generic Vehicular Architecture (GVA) displays is a 10.4-inch rugged touchscreen that provides real-time imaging of network video streams as well as composite-analog and DVI inputs. It combines high-performance imaging in a compact footprint to deliver an ergonomic solution for space-constrained vehicle applications.

Among the broad selection of Codis rugged displays at the show will also be products selected for the U.K. AJAX program, including:

* TX-335S turret crew station displays, which present gunners and commanders with logistics, mission-system and gun-control information.

* TX-321S triple-head driver's displays to render a near-seamless 120-degree image of the route with selectable front or rear view in day or night vision.

On display from the Korry brand will be the Commander Data Entry Tool (CDET) keyboard, featuring area-lit LED dome-switch technology for exceptionally long life, lighting uniformity, color and brightness. Korry products were the first illuminated high-quality cockpit controls in the aerospace industry.

Showcased Mason products will include HMI controls engineered for rugged performance, including both rotary-aircraft cockpit controls as well as HaWC hand-held controllers for unmanned systems and ground missions. Mason HaWC controllers have been engineered for air, land and sea environments for both military and civilian applications.

In addition, Esterline will display its Racal Acoustics ELITE in-ear hearing protection system for state-of-the-art hearing protection, advanced local situational awareness and secure communications. Also on show will be Racal Acoustics high-performance Raptor medium-noise headsets, offering premium hearing protection, communication intelligibility and situation awareness. Raptor headsets are already deployed in over 300,000 Humvee vehicles.
