Abstract:

The capabilities of increased electroluminescent EL phosphor maintenance, new high contrast filter techniques, and mass produced control circuitry arrays have greatly motivated Air Force interest in advanced display techniques. Due to the extremely short persistence of EL emission, the only realistic way of generating a useful level of display intensity for cockpit applications has been to drive the EL phosphor continuously. This requires the combination of EL phosphor layers with mass produced control circuitry. Such circuitry must accept and store high speed input signals, and switch, apply or restrict EL drive signals so that legible presentations can appear on the face of the display. Display requirements are first determined by the pilots basic range of perceptual sensitivities and second by operational needs. Considerable effort has been directed towards both of these areas to achieve a practical solid state display capability. Author
