The KC-130J is a multi-role tanker aircraft designed and developed by Lockheed Martin to replace the KC-130F/R/T aircraft.
We build high-tech special ops video equipment for aircraft, such as: LCD monitors, aircraft computers, and high-definition video splitters and amplifiers. When you think of HD video and special mission and special ops, think Flight Display Systems. Each of our 120 plus products is designed, engineered and built by a small, but growing, team of enthusiasts. Our employees are unwavering in their quest for quality and results.
Flight Display Systems creates the finest aircraft cabin electronics in the world. We grow by providing the best customer experience and dealer support anywhere.
Rugged, field-tested LCD monitors
Space is at a premium in most aircraft cockpits. Flight Display Systems has developed an entire line of rugged, field-tested LCD monitors that can be easily retrofitted into small areas. Using precision engineered flip brackets (flippers) or arm mounts, the displays can easily be installed alongside existing instrumentation. Custom configurations are also possible through our knowledgeable in-house engineering team.
Night vision-enabled screens
Toggling a switch on the monitor faceplate changes the display back-lighting to a night vision-compatible mode. Otherwise, bright colours such as red, white and yellow can cause the auto-gain feature of night vision equipment to protect the system by reducing the level of light intensification. This reduction in gain leads to diminished visual acuity for the user. Colours used in display modes not optimised for night vision goggles can also create increased glare and reflection.

High-bright compatible displays
Because most ‘off-the-shelf’ LCDs don’t operate efficiently in direct sunlight, Flight Display Systems’ high-bright displays are engineered to operate in extreme ambient light conditions. These are especially good for helicopter operators.
High-definition widescreen monitors
High-definition widescreen monitors allow for more content to be displayed in a smaller space. Replacing outdated CRT displays and tiny LCD monitors offers a tactical advantage when making life and death decisions. To simplify planning and installation, Flight Display Systems has created Fly HD, an end-to-end system comprised of source equipment, backbone architecture and displays optimised for high-definition.
Bezel keys for added functionality
Bezel keys are typically used to send one or more characters to a military aircraft computer running advanced software applications. Users can assign up to 20 characters to each bezel key and decide where on the LCD monitor they would like the bezel keys installed. Customers can also request that a USB port be included on the monitor faceplate.
Avionics support and service
Our focus is on customer service. It isn’t something we do, it’s part of who we are. After all, customers are the most important part of our business. They aren’t dependent on us, but we are dependent on them. We are consistently rated #1 for avionics support and service by leading industry journals.
In 2001, Flight Display Systems rattled the avionics industry by creating a faster, easier, less expensive Moving Map system for VIP aircraft passengers. Today we have three main market segments that include military and special mission products, in-flight entertainment equipment, and aircraft cabin management systems.
