DLE to upgrade F-22 Raptor HUD
BAE Systems will modernise the US Air Force F-22 Raptor’s head-up display (HUD) with its Digital Light Engine (DLE) technology under an agreement with Lockheed Martin announced on 16 January.
The company will use its DLE technology to implement a form, fit and function HUD solution that integrates into the F-22’s existing HUD space.
The company anticipates receiving a follow-on production contract to retrofit the F-22 fleet’s current HUDs with the modern DLE solution.
The DLE upgrade removes the conventional cathode ray tube image source and introduces an advanced digital display solution. The digital technology offers increased reliability, eliminates high-maintenance and obsolete items, and provides a constant luminance performance.
