HUD1080 Head-Up Display, BuiltSAFE™


Save space and decrease integration time with low-profile technology

Built with Digital Light Engine and FPGA technology, HUD1080 displays flight-critical information in 1080p and can be quickly updated to support new interfaces. The compact design occupies less vertical space, bringing large area display integration closer to eye level to minimize pilot discomfort. Rugged and DAL-A certifiable, it can function as a primary flight display.

View Datasheet

  • Project 1080p video with high-resolution symbology, high contrast ratio and >240 total field of view (TFOV)
  • Adjustable brightness from 0.03fL to >2200 fL and night-vision (NVIS) capable for clear and crisp imagery in direct sunlight and at night. ​
  • DAL-A certifiable to function as primary flight display
  • Digital Light Engine (DLE) technology with integrated SoC supports enhanced vision systems such as FLIR, and can be updated to support new interfaces
  • Low-profile waveguide option accomodates large area displays to minimize pilot discomfort.  
  • Non-obstructive camera that records live video overlaid with symbology for debriefing and training purposes
  • Rugged, MIL-STD 810G and 8,000 hrs MTBF to lower risk of failure and lifecycle and maintenance costs.
  • Built with fewer components, mean time to repair is no more than 30 minutes
  • 1 min startup time, conduction and convection cooled​
