MD-80/MD-90

The IS&S Cockpit/IP Flat Panel Display system (FPDS) consists of a pilot and copilot Primary Flight Display/Multifunction Display (PFD/MFD) suite, containing four (4) 6” x 8” Display Units (DU) and two (2) Display Control Panels (DCP) and two (2) 4 MCU Data Concentrator Units (DCU) installed in the electronics bay. By eliminating a number of older or obsolete components the Cockpit/IP, designed to support existing aircraft wiring, provides simplicity and flexibility allowing aircraft to be retrofitted within the window of a routine maintenance visit.

A primary consideration of the system design is replacing aging and obsolete equipment while maintaining compatibility with the functional legacy systems and equipment.  The IS&S installation package has been designed to minimize wiring modifications in the electronics bay by utilizing the existing equipment racks and wiring connections.  The unique design concept permits accelerated modification of graphic display formats and rapid certification.

The FPDS will meet your needs as mission requirements evolve and future technology changes at a rapid pace.  The Cockpit/IP provides enabling technology for a path to support emerging technologies such as Required Navigation Performance (RNP), Enhanced and Synthetic Vision (EVS and SVS) and it will align to current and emerging OEM platform
