Barco Federal Systems achieves delivery milestone of 28,000 rugged displays





Barco continues to strengthen its role as an integral technology supplier to the U.S. Navy by providing thousands of rugged displays and graphics cards for the command and control workstations of several naval programs.

On an ongoing basis, Barco has supplied RFD-251 series rugged flat panel displays and AVS-5100 graphics controllers, which are specifically engineered for C4ISR mission-critical military applications. The foundation of this business is the AN/UYQ-70 (Q-70) program, widely used in U.S. Navy program applications for sea, land, and airborne military platforms, as well as foreign sales to Australia, Germany, Japan, Norway, and Spain.

The RFD-251 series display is a MIL-tailored 20.1” rugged LCD display, which offers superior operational performance in harsh military environments. It features a front-bonded optical stack for improved optical performance and superior ruggedization. The RFD-251 is a direct 19” rack and console mountable and can be remotely controlled via a serial link. The Automatic Phase Adjust function locks the sampling clock to drifting graphics generator clocks. Furthermore, the RFD-251 can be equipped with Barco’s unique patented LCD Flicker Compensation solution.
