2014-03-14 12:41:01 - Global Digital Glass Military Aircraft Cockpit Systems Market 2013-2023 - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
The global digital glass military aircraft cockpit systems market will total $1.71bn in 2013. Digital glass cockpit systems, which have for many years been prevalent in the civil aviation sector, are becoming an increasingly effective means for military aircraft operators to add capabilities to their fleets. As well as reducing the information management workload for pilots who are tasked with coordinating ever larger networks of sensors and platforms, digital glass cockpits can lead to weight and power savings over traditional instrumentation, allow easier interaction with civilian air traffic control, lower accident rates and enable faster training for new pilots.
Modern digital glass cockpit systems use liquid crystal display (LCD) screens to display critical flight information, although in early examples bulkier
cathode ray tube (CRT) monitors were used. Also known by a variety of similar acronyms such as electronic flight information systems (EFIS) and cockpit display system (CDS), glass cockpit displays are usually based around primary flight displays (PFDs) engine indications and crew alerting system (EICAS) and multifunction displays (MFDs), which allow clusters of mechanical flight instrument gauges to be replaced with graphical representations of information from onboard and external sensors and navigation systems.
Although current growth rates in the digital glass military cockpit systems market are positive, we´re on the cusp of a swift upturn in growth rates that we expect to last for at least two years. A combination of delays in programmes and downward budgetary pressure has led some states to purchase quicker, cheaper glass cockpit upgrades for existing platforms, or to buy existing aircraft off the shelf. The effects of this spending provide a clear window of opportunity for glass cockpit manufacturers to exploit.
