IEE Contracts With Cubic Global Defense for Military Control Display Unit

  • 3.5-inch AMLCD Display Integrated onto C-130J Aircraft CDU

IEE, manufacturer of enhanced displays for military and industrial applications, was awarded a contract for a new 3.5-inch Control Display Unit (CDU) by Cubic Global Defense (CGD), a business unit of Cubic Corporation (NYSE: CUB). The 3.5” CDU provides an upgrade to the existing Personnel Locator System (PLS) CDU currently fielded on multiple aircraft platforms, including the Air Force C-130J fleet.

While the redesign of the CDU was initially prompted to eliminate parts obsolescence, the application of modern Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) processors also provides several industry standard interfaces that allow for future expansion and additional interoperability with other aircraft systems. The new 3.5” CDU provides full backward compatibility with the Control Display Sub-System (CDSS); but with the added Ethernet interface, comes new functionality that allows PLS output data to be displayed on the moving maps on external avionics displays.

The Cubic PLS’s low-cost integration opens up new opportunities to expand onto other rotary-wing and fixed-wing aircraft. For example, the new system is also targeted for installation on legacy Blackhawk helicopters with obsolescence requirements.

“IEE is an expert in delivering the best value in form and fit replacement by modifying existing COTS products to meet legacy requirements,” said Tom Whinfrey, CEO of IEE Inc. “This greatly enhances the life cycle of the CDU, which is of utmost importance to our customers.”
