7” SVDU-M 1920×1080 touchscreen display supports intuitive smartphone style multipoint navigation and control

ASHBURN, Va. – April 20, 2020 – Curtiss-Wright’s Defense Solutions division, a proven leading supplier of deployed video management solutions, has announced the further expansion of its family of rugged displays designed to meet the unique requirements of deployed military and civil aircraft and ground vehicles. The introduction of the new SVDU-M 7” rugged mission display brings intuitive superior Projected Capacitive (PCAP) multipoint touchscreen technology to a compact, single DVI-input, size, weight, and power (SWaP) optimized unit. 

With support for 1920×1080 pixel screen resolution, the SVDU-M combines advanced features in a compact display, including optically-bonded glass and LED backlighting for enhanced daylight viewing, and dual mode LED backlighting to support MIL-STD-3009 NVIS B night vision goggle (NVG) use. Designed for optimal performance in harsh environments, the display’s DVI video input and USB interfaces are supported via a highly rugged MIL-DTL-38999 connector. The SVDU-M’s PCAP touchscreen delivers high reliability and responsiveness even when the operator is wearing gloves or when the screen is wet. This compact, high resolution display is ideal for integrating touchscreen display capabilities onto airborne (rotary and fixed wing), civil (police, search and rescue), and military ground vehicle platforms to enhance situational awareness and support critical missions.

“While some deployed video display applications require high-end performance and integrated PCs, there are many airborne and ground platforms for which a small, less complex touchscreen display hits the sweet spot,” said Lynn Bamford, President, Defense and Power. “Our new SVDU-M display packs numerous advanced features into a compact 7” rugged design, that combines multi-touch screen navigation with high resolution 1920×1080 pixel imagery to deliver the accuracy and clarity needed to deliver enhanced situational awareness during critical missions in harsh environments.”
