Cobham Avionics (Hall 2 Stand E83) has just released its new large-format IDU-680P integrated flight display. According to the Arlington, Virginia-based manufacturer, the six- by eight-inch portrait display is an extension of its certified IDU-450 landscape display currently in use in helicopter OEM applications.

Both units feature integrated helicopter and fixed-wing TAWS (terrain avoidance and warning system) and synthetic-vision primary flight display, night-vision
goggle compatibility, integrated global positioning system and flight management system, and on-board digital flight recording. Like the IDU-450, the new unit also includes highway-in-the-sky navigation, hover vector symbology, and customizable engine display and master caution system options.
