Mission Computing & Avionics

Mission-Critical Displays

Mission-critical displays are engineered to deliver unparalleled performance across multiple domains, in the most extreme environments. Found in the world’s most prestigious cockpits and instrument panels, our display head assemblies (DHA) are designed with highly specialized active matrix liquid crystal displays (AMLCD) to address the mission critical needs of military vehicles (vetronics) and military and commercial aircraft (avionics).

Built to Purpose

Every aspect of your application is considered, from the display characteristics (size, resolution, color depth, color saturation, aspect ratios, viewing cone) and mechanical packaging, to the sustainability and longevity requirements.

Our progressive approach with materials and design yields the most advanced, fully functioning displays to enhance situational awareness and precision, all while reducing risk and providing the lowest through-life cost.

True 10-Bit Large Area Display

We lead the industry offering the only true 10-bit, dual redundant large area display (LAD). Its high dynamic range of 1024 gray shades is enhanced with  night vision-enabled technology, ensuring you see further, with more clarity, to make a more informed decision sooner.


Dual Redundant Display in Bubble Canopy Applications

Minimize Reflection Interference

Today's cockpit integrator, whether for a state-of-the-art military fast jet, or piston-powered general aviation, is striving to enhance situational awareness and increase safety through the use of large area displays. In bubble-canopy cockpits, viewing cones must be narrow enough to reduce canopy reflections without negating the increased panel size benefit. Mercury Systems has developed AMLCD displays that maximize viewing area and provide redundancy while also providing a very narrow viewing cone.


Our ability to control the design of every characteristic of the active matrix liquid crystal display ensures you get exactly what your need application needs not just what is available commercially. Below are the patent awards for our unique technologies and processes we employ in our display product development and manufacturing to meet your application's demanding conditions.
