Abstract : The Lightweight Modular Display System (LMDS) consists of a set of low-cost modules integrated into a low-power, lightweight, general-purpose display system. LMDS was developed for broad application aboard surface combatant command and control systems and noncombatant platforms in the 1990 time frame. The LMDS introduces innovative approaches to human interface, thermal and shock management, power distribution, architecture, sensor display, and system management. This design approach enables the LMDS to significantly improve upon operator efficiency, cost, size, weight, and maintenance factors as compared to traditional display systems. (Author)
