Display Computer Demonstration

The FORCE2 is running an avionics application fusing a number of different elements into a single display. The primary flight display elements – attitude & heading indicator, airspeed, vertical speed, turn coordinator and altimeter – are overlaid on a synthetic vision system giving a real time 3D representation of the terrain, to provide pilots with clear and intuitive means of understanding their flying environment. Additionally, two video streams are displayed “picture in picture” allowing a digital map and an electro-optic sensor to be viewed, for complete situational awareness.

The FORCE2 Flight Computer

Comprises COTS boards packaged in a proven chassis design with a high technology readiness level (TRL), allowing customers to focus on application design by reducing integration effort, thus lowering risk and time to market.

The path to certification

Whether it’s manned or unmanned, fixed or rotary wing, military aircraft are ­continuously being pushed to new technological limits. Increasingly, they are required to operate in areas that require FAA or equivalent regulatory ­compliance. This means more and more systems will need DO-254 and DO-178 DAL ­certification. Some developers and integrators make the decision to design their own flight safety certifiable electronics. This arduous task takes on risk of cost and schedule overruns. A COTS solution designed to meet these rigorous ­standards and audited by an FAA designee reduces those risks. .
