Las Vegas, USA – L-3 Aviation Products (L-3 AP) and Thomas Global announced today at NBAA that they have signed an alliance agreement to cooperate in the development of certain CRT-to-LCD display upgrade products that eliminate CRT-related maintenance costs, downtime and obsolescence issues, while providing a cost-effective growth path for cockpit upgrades.
“L-3 is delighted to be working with Thomas Global, leveraging its CRT-to-LCD display conversion technology and growing commercial market presence,” said Stuart Mullan, president of L-3 Aviation Products. “This agreement builds on our recent award from ATR to provide an LCD display upgrade for its 42/72 aircraft. The ATR program is a springboard for CRT-to-LCD upgrades on other aircraft platforms.”
