Our production teams then use modern tools like 3D printing and multi-axis machining to manufacture each unit with exacting quality standards. The nimbleness with which we formulate and produce custom solutions sets us apart within the industry.
AVP4109BNHT on the CV-22 Osprey
AVP4109BNHT on the CV-22 Osprey
Avalex engineered the AVP4109BNHT as part of a four-display system upgrade supporting the CV-22 Osprey. This 10.4″ XGA portrait display was customized with a bezel-button interface designed to control applications being run on the SAMS/ESA computer host. In addition to qualifying for flight in rotary-wing and fixed-wing aircraft per MIL-STD-810 and 461 requirements, this customization also passed CV-22-specific shock and vibration testing profiles.

ACM9454K Communications Management Unit (CMU) on the HH-60 Pave Hawk
Avalex provided customized implementation of advanced-waveform support in the ACM9454K communications management unit for the HH-60
Pave Hawk, in addition to enhancing the avionics radio model and performing qualification testing.
AST3127B Smart Tablet on the C-17A
By upgrading a 10.1″ tablet, Avalex developed a 12.1″ PCAP touchscreen tablet prepared for hard-mounting in the C-17A platform. An Intel Core i7 processor supports an unclassified low side data feed carried over DisplayPort,
while a classified high side data feed is carried over ethernet and authenticated via an integrated SIPRNET card reader.
AVM4170PG Display on the CP-140 Aurora
The AVM4170PG display had to meet strict specifications for a program supporting the CP-140 Aurora. Avalex modified the original AVM4170 to accommodate the near-continual cold-climate operation and night-flight requirements of the CP-140’s maritime patrol/search-and-rescue/intelligence-surveillance-reconnaissance (ISR) functions.
LCD and button backlighting, heated cover glass, and a 10-button keypad with finger guards were all added to the off-the-shelf unit, and its 10.1″ high-definition display was configured for VGA, SDI, and S-Video inputs.
AVM4107PEP on the P3
Customizing the original AVM4107, Avalex developed a display for flight on foreign military variants of the P-3. The AVM4107PEP is a 10.1″ widescreen display modified to include an LCD touchscreen and Avalex’s 5th gen video module (AVM5x). Its video circuit board features input capacity for all common forms of analog and digital video signals, including Composite, RGB Component, S-Video, VGA, and DVI/HDMI. Further,
this unit is compatible with SDI supporting SMPTE-292M, SMPTE-259M, and SMPTE-424M. The 28VDC power supply and all other components in the board design are qualified to MIL-STD-704 and 461 for fixed-wing and rotary wing craft.
AVM4172 on the AC-130U
Supporting the AC-130U gunship, Avalex engineered a heated, flight-glove-compatible, 17″
flat-panel LCD touchscreen with DVI/VGA inputs, bezel keys, and split-screen functionality.
AVM4158L on the A/MH-6M
Avalex developed the AVM4158L as a central primary flight-and-multifunction display for the A/MH-6M Little Bird. Requirement included augmentation of a sunlight-readable, 15″ Large Area Display with state-of-the-art connectivity, allowing operators to input optical video data as well as single-channel video.
The rugged, milled-aluminum housing, which surrounds the screen with night vision-compatible bezel keys, provides operators with linked tactical and navigational systems. Side-by-side windowing, switchable input display, and dual-zone viewing angles further optimize the AVM4158L for center console performance.
ASD3106N and Wireless Integrated Cockpit Information Display (WICID) on the C-130 and C-17
Partnering with a U.S. military research laboratory, Avalex designed, developed, and manufactured the ASD3106N Smart Multi-Function Display (SMFD). This unit was then further modified into a Wireless Integrated Cockpit Information Display (WICID).
The WICID remotely controls applications and carry-on software, including the Joint Precision Air Drop System (JPADS) and Falcon View — both used by C-130 and C-17 aircrews. This modification provides enhanced situational awareness for operators.
AST4095K for the Norwegian Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile System (NASAMS)
Avalex customized a smart tablet designed to control the Norwegian Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile System (NASAMS) canister launcher. This AST4095K uses the Cortex-A9 Quad-core 1.2 gigahertz processor module found in our communications management units as the foundation for a Linux-based resistive touchscreen controller. The AST4095K provides high-definition video and dynamic graphic overlay rendering in a compact, 10.75″ x 8.5″ x 2″ profile. Detachable carry handles, an optional vehicle mounting bracket, and a removable, rechargeable battery pack all contribute to the AST4095K’s rugged portability.
Designed for all-climate use in challenging battlefield conditions, this tablet was optimized for use with Personal Protective Equipment up to MOPP level 4. It was further engineered to be submersible (to a depth of 1 meter), to be functionally robust to extreme temperatures, and to be readable in bright-light situations.
