Curtiss-Wright launches displays

24th September 2015 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Curtiss-Wright has introduced a new family of mission critical rugged displays developed for the ground vehicle market, designed to provide optimal performance in harsh military conditions.

The family includes the 10.4” Ground Unit Display Unit (GVDU) 2630 touchscreen display. The compact and lightweight (3kg) unit provides 1024x768 resolution and is available with a range of embedded Intel processor options. 

The unit is fully qualified to established environmental standards and can be connected to a wide variety of video sources.  External video is accepted as DVI-D or analog input, with the touchscreen and bezel button output available on USB and RS232/RS422 suitable for direct connection to other equipment such as mission and map computers and other video equipment, such as cameras and Video Management Systems (VMS) for situational awareness applications.

Support for applications in which the user wears night vision goggles are also an option.

The GVDU2630 can be used either in a standalone configuration or can be integrated with other Curtiss-Wright MIL-STD-810 compliant products such our DuraCOR family of small form-factor processor units, rugged OpenVPX single board computers or 3U VPX application-ready systems. 

Lynn Bamford, senior vice president and general manager, defense solutions division, said: ‘We are very excited about the launch of our new GVDU. With the new GVDU range of displays, Curtiss-Wright provides vehicle system integrators with an unparalleled combination of integration, optimised configuration and longevity of supply, all at a price that fits the sensitive budgets of ground vehicle system applications. 

‘End-users will appreciate the clarity and brightness of these displays, while benefitting from the ease of use and long-term reliability in the harshest of environments.’
