BLACK HAWK GOING DIGITAL
Finally, Bkack Hawks will be equipped with glass cockpit technology. Another 20 years service for the Black Hawks?
The system features a centralized processor with a partitioned, modular operational flight program with an integrated architecture that enables new capabilities through software-only solutions rather than hardware additions. The architecture maximizes the UH-60L platform performance and reliability while minimizing total life cycle cost. The system is also smaller in size, lower in weight and requires less power than legacy processing systems

L-3 WX-500 Stormscope

Designed to interface with most MFD’s, the WX-500 allows pilots to view lightning information directly on their MFD - on a dedicated page or overlaid on the map. Whether you are a commercial pilot flying an all glass cockpit or a General Aviation pilot with a traditional panel, Stormscope fits the model that suits your needs. Whether viewing on a dedicated display or overlaying the information on a moving map,
L-3 WX-500 Stormscope Stormscope offers the most display options of any weather provider. With its multiple output options, Stormscope keeps pilots informed of lightning strikes the second they happen. Stormscope is certified and flying with almost every display manufacturer, and the list is growing everyday.

Are Changes Coming To Glass Cockpits For Pilots?

Recent developments in glass technology and how they are applied to LCD (liquid crystal displays) may have a profound change in aircraft cockpits. As pilots we are always faced with new (and improved) technologies to safely operate our aircraft.

Today most glass cockpit instrumentation is done on CRT (cathode ray tube) displays, but these advancements in LCD technology may begin to replace CRTs in cockpits.

What this means for pilots is that they are going to need to be aware of the effects of polarized aviator sunglasses on their ability to see LCD panels. Non-polarized aviator sunglasses will be the norm because they do not distort LCD display views.

Advancements in glass are going to change the way we operate our aircraft - are you ready?

“Glass Cockpit Advances”

Grumman A-6F Intruder ii

In the 1980′s and early 90′s, Grumman proposed an upgraded Intruder to the U.S. Navy.  The A-6F would come with an all glass cockpit, upgraded radar and avionics, AIM-9 and AIM-120 carrying capability for self defense, new wings, and a new engine (the same engine as the F/A-18 for easier maintenance and cost efficiency).  

Although the new Intruder was a coveted prospect by many in naval aviation, it was ultimately cancelled in favor of the stealth A-12 Avenger ii project by McDonnell Douglas.  The Navy and Marine Corps had planned to buy over 600 A-12′s, and the Air Force even considered buying around 400 of them as a replacement for its aging fleet of attack aircraft.  Eventually the A-12 program was cancelled, bringing down the A-6F with it.
